So off to see Golfguy tomorrow (Yes I believe it makes a difference :)) to have lofts and lies checked on the X Forged.

 

Also drop off the wilsons and mizunos to have the shafts swapped over then sell the Wilson's (Any takers? Itchy would Aiden be interested still?).

 

Par @ 'Berg on Sunday with Benny, Bully and Kiwi! Should be fun and full of laughs. Hoping for a +5 again (dreaming!! lol). Believe we are behind Dallas and a few others although not to sure who.

 

This will essentially be the last round for a few weeks if not month or two as bub is due on the 26th.

So a visit out to Golfguy, awesome to catch up and chat golf and life!! Always enjoyable. Took Erin and Charlotte and dropped them off at Chaddy and went on to the fitting!

 

I got the Cally's adjusted 1 up and readjusted the lofts back to normal. Re-adjusted my wedges to 54 and 58 on both sets.

 

Mizuno's are in too have shafts pulled and the Project X 5.5's to go in out of the Wilson's.

 

I probably wont be picking them up until the middle of July and then have a couple of range sessions to work out what is going to be used where.

Par @ Heidelberg with Bully Kiwi and Benny! Lots of laughs and fun, couple of mishaps and the golf was average from Me, ok from Kiwi(-5) and Bully(-4) and Good from Benny (+2)

 

So -11 at Heidelberg was all sorts or ordinary. Putting yips have entered the fray and now standing over a putt I have no confidence in holing it or even being near it from a lag putt. Suppose the enforced break couldn't have come at a better time!

 

Irons were great after the adjustment on Sat, pity the owner wasn't! Driver was so so, hit some cracking drives and then some ordinary ones so put it away on the Back 9 (Front 9 of the course) and hit some cracking woods during the day. 80m short of 14 for 2 was a phenomenal effort pity the rest of the hole was crap....

 

Overall I just enjoyed the day with the group and although putting killed me I did play a fair bit carefree and checked out on the game knowing the next month is going to be busy and little to no golf :)

 

I am still tending to get too fast in my swing and not getting the hips through and being all armsy. Had a couple of hard draws almost bordering hooks that came out of nowhere. Once I put a good swing on though I was getting some distances again I haven't seen in a while.

 

3w 5i to be pin high (just off green left) on 8 was a highlight followed by Driver 3w to be 80m short of 14.

Golf is a game of two halves, I reckon.

 

The top half, and the bottom half.

 

If you're getting too fast in your swing you have two choices.

 

You can slow down the half that is swinging too fast, or you can learn to speed up the half that is being left behind.

 

I reckon speeding up the slower half is a much better proposition .... :)
