Played Wednesday comp in the heat expecting 36 deg.

Started out ok but the curse of the long Curlewis rough and my balls getting lost in it struck on the 3rd hole! wipe. Another double followed and then I seemed to settle a little hitting fairways/gir etc even a birdie. 16 pts for the nine.

Managed to somehow birdie my tenth hole from the rough, wipe the next thanks to a sculled pitch from the middle of the fairway. Then we were called off for the heat. We kept playing which coincided with some of my best shots of the day. Came home with 21 pts to finish on 37pts which would have been good enough for a played to 10 I think. 

 

Positives:1. some really crisp accurate irons

               2. 3 wood was out there and straight!

               3. putting was a lot better(no 3 putts)

               4. 3 birdies and 6 pars

Negatives: 1. driver was a bit wayward

                   2. 3 doubles

 

 

 

Played a social round at my old club with a couple of family members today,

Struck the ball really well once again however I was over drawing/hooking the ball a bit too much. finished with 40/38  78 off the stick 1 birdie, 9 pars and 2 doubles.

36 pts yesterday off the blue tees in hairy conditions wasn't bad. Bit of a mixed bag some great holes with a couple of shockers! Some great individual shots mixed with some poor shots.

Have noticed a hook developing into my game which is both concerning and not. The not cause i'm only missing left not the two way miss I've always fought. Think i was getting a bit handsy through the shot and not getting my body rotated through thus encouraging the neutral face through impact.

 

Positives:- Half of my drives were straight and out there! (managed to get one on the 409m 15th at 300m, only 110m in. true story :D )

               -  Putting is starting to come good. a more basic two finger overlap rather than a prair gripseems to give me more feel.

 

Negitives:- Chipping and pitching still need work    

                - Inconsistent strike with irons
