No golfing until the end of this week, once the physical tune up was completed and another very speedy recovery was the result. Which was followed by nothing more than chipping and putting practise to keep this match winning ability in a reliable state.
Today the desire to have a walk and play nine holes is there but has been put on hold in favour of a driving range workout. Taking the six iron out of the bag only and hitting two lots of twenty balls today was enough. Once again discipline was a key, putting the desire to play golf on hold and working on improving the identified weakness from the past weeks, Greens In Regulation.
The first lot of twenty balls had a 25% accuracy grouping in the ten metre diameter target area. Not a concern as I was loosening up and certainly a little tentative following the physical tune up.Taking that into account there was another positive as well from the first twenty balls, the club distance was back to the 140 metres mark after the first 5 balls hit. After walking out and picking up the balls the second set was began and this returned a 55% grouping in the target area and the distance was spot on from the first ball, continued the consistency from start to finish.
It was a very short session that did no damage to the recovered bits and delivered physical results from the action as well as confidence. Still tempting to have done more, the decision to stop and be satisfied with what was delivered was the right one.
Tonight is club presentation night and I will receive the Club Champion award and see my name up on the honour board. That is why I am happy with today's session "less is more" has not let me down once this season when it mattered.
