So after 5 weeks off work back to the Salt mine yesterday :(

 

5 weeks of fun family time and catching up on odd house jobs. Unfortunately this meant golf got put the back burners but TBH I didn't miss it as much as I thought I would.

 

Got to play 1 round over the 5 weeks but got about 4 or 5 range sessions as well out at the Frog. Bit of tuning and tweaking during these sessions hopefully has me now hitting the ball better and giving me a better feel during the swing.

 

Also a visit to Jon to collect the Mizuno's after having the shafts swapped was the best thing I did. The clubs feel great and amazing and says a lot for fitting (although some disagree). A range session with them was fantastic and really has me contemplating using them full time. A couple of comp rounds will give me a better idea.

 

Range sessions was working on trying to eliminate steepness, fire my hips properly after being told I wasn't doing this anymore and then work on ball first then ground.

 

The one thing was I slowed down (or what felt like) my swing to control the path of the club. I tend to get a bit wild and that is from swinging hard. So with consciously feeling the right arm tucked and also keeping a straight left arm I managed to start fixing all 3. I found I was hitting the ball first and getting a divot about anywhere up to an inch in front of the ball. I also found I was in more control and not over swinging. So a big work in progress but its a start.

 

All this over 3 range sessions lead me into my only round. Warm up range session did not go well. But with adding a feel of the swing into pre shot I found I was hitting the ball that much better and not over doing it. Putting killed me on the day as expected with no feel to have 30 pts. Had 4 or 5 par putts either lip out or die at the edge but took me a few holes to shake the comp rust so to speak.

 

A few more range sessions 2 weeks later showed I still have a lot of work as I got back into steepness and hard swinging. Hoping to keep the feel and control of it but I think range work is needed to engrain it.

 

All things considered I think the break did wonders in allowing me to re calibrate and work on getting my cap down again.

Stableford Monthly Medal from the Blacks @ 'Berg.

 

29 Pts (15+14) w 1 Birdie, 2 Pars, 6 Bogeys, 6 Doubles + 3 wipes.

 

Won the Pro Pin on the 6th hole @ 74cm and made the putt! Long 9i over the back and banked of the back as I wanted. Trickled back to the hole!

 

Overall happy with the day. Wish I had of broken 30 but had my chances. Putting still a bit rusty but got it going eventually.

 

Swing coming along ok. Couple of bad swings as you would expect but feeling more confident with it as time goes on.

 

Tried out the B330S 2016 model and absolutely loved it. Am getting longer as a combo of this and a more fluid controlled swing.

 

Also took the Mizuno for a hit and like them but honest answer is I don't know if they will unseat the Callys. Couple more rounds to see and go from there.

 

I think as I get a few more games going this will have my game coming together nicely (Hopefully lol). Then onto actually playing well and bringing the cap down!

Rundown of Round and holes of highlight bad or good:

 

Shotgun Start Hole 11: Drive high slice, out over trees and 4i short of green. Chipped on and then 3 putted for 1 pt and off it went.

 

12: Drove beautifully to be halfway up hill. Chunked a 7i into the bunker then proceeded to leave it in there. Got out but almost into opposite one. 3 putted back and wiped hole.

 

14: Worst hole of the day. Hook left into trees, same with provisional. Find first but lose second. Try to punch out to Fwy and end up shanking right across fairway into opposite trees. Try to punch out again, into tree. Just walk up and smash a 3w and connect perfectly and think finally out. Nope, clunk straight into Power Poles. Deliberate Smashed Sliced 7i to short of green, chip on and 1 putt for a 1 point.

 

17: Nice high fading 5i to back right pin. 2 putt par.

 

1: Long drive down the middle past the bunker. Chunked 8i into bunker, sail the green and into trees. Cant get out wipe.

 

4: Drive halfway up hill, semi-topped 3w leaving me out 140. 6I onto green then 3 putted for bogey.

 

6: Best hole, perfect 9i to back right pin, trickles back and made the putt and Pro Pin win!

 

10: Drive and hit gum, punch out and then pw over back. No confidence in chip but have too and land perfectly. Rush putt and miss, 6.

 

Overall putting let me down on a few holes but the chunking worst. Bit of swaying crept in during swing instead of hips. Bunker work is needed to control it better.

 

Overall confidence standing over the ball on the tee is back. Most irons I have confidence in striking well and being straight. Chipping ok but just need to trust the hit and hit it. Putting is just rust and not overly worries about that as touch will come back.
