Decided to 'tool down' my driver last night after 3 nips of port before resting up.

It's a M2 was 10.5 and moved it 2 out 3 notches lower.

 

 

Wednesday 23rd November,

 

Settlers Run (Qantas Day) Single Stableford

 

Hit some 7 irons and driver on practise fairway, 'Tool Down' seemed to minimise the fade on the driver.

 

It was cold and wet when teeing off at 1130 and remained so until after walking of 16th hole.

 

Played off the gold tees and my 16.5 went to 20.

 

Tale of the tape. (31 pts)

5 x 3pts

4 x 1pts

3 x wipes.

 

No birdies.

3 putts = 4.

Cold tops =  4 (This sticks in the craw, more than 3 putts, felt like I've never played the game before).

 

My thoughts for the day,

Used driver all day and tooling down helped as I didn't lose it completely right

Still at times ball position and alignment issues. (Just getting used to the variances of different lies on the course again)

 

Playing Spring Valley on Monday, unless I decide on a sneaky practise on sat arvo after 330 on Sandhurst north

By tool down do you mean loft up? I assume you're trying to close the face...

Interesting, lowering the loft usually opens the face on adjustable drivers.

Monday 28th November (SGA day at Spring Valley) Single Stableford

 

Course -

Fairways Good,

Bunkers go a couple of thin lies but was in quite a few

Greens were being fertilised as we started to play and were sticky.

 

3 putted first and went mentally and physically downhill .

 

21 pts

 

After looking for my drive on hole declared it lost and wiped only to find it the middle of the fairway. I blame a crow that I saw near the tree  I hit it near.

 

Missed to many putts and bad chips from wrong side of green

Seve add loft to your driver until it goes straight. As Itchy said lowering the loft usually opens the face. Same with tee height. If you have it low there is more chance of it going right.

If you want to take a third off your cap see a coach. As you play at Sandhurst a bit Garth Cusick teaches there at the PGA centre and coaches many of us on ISeek. Tell him you're from ISeek and he'll fit you in to his schedule.

He is someone who makes incremental changes and doesn't expect you to totally change what you are currently doing

Good luck on your journey.

Medical Update :

I have an old RH injury which up until I started back a few weeks ago refused to offer as an excuse for the last 25 years of playing golf 

But maybe after yesterday the dawning of the hip problem may be having some impact.

 

Hence my daily 'door handle' routine and other exercises.
