Well, it seems like a long time between posts, so much so, I feel I should approach this as more of a confessional.
Forgive me, for I have sinned.
Nah. F'uck it.
Let me grab another beer and bring you up to speed ...
Between surf, work and the the bloody Ekka 'flu, and just this week a good 'ole head cold, the golf clubs have been left unattended for too long.
Now, said head cold, arrived in perfect time to:
- stuff up a run in the back marker challenge last Friday, and
- interfere with a short game clinic I had booked for last Sunday.
Having pre-paid for the short game clinic, I dosed up on Codral Cold n Flu (original of course, give me the good stuff), and spent 6 hours learning what I was doing wrong from inside 50m. With a head cold slowing me down, there was no practise of what I had been shown until today, and it was not pretty to start.
After a few hours, I started to get the feel, and was dropping 3 out of 5 within a metre from anywhere inside 50m. Sand included. Was a good feeling. I was only using 5 balls, and tracking stats with the 5 balls. Toward the end, I did 7 sets of 'up and downs' and managed 4 in a row without a miss (i.e. 4 x 5 balls from varying distances that all went in for 2 shots - I hit chip, pitch and the putt out). So, that all felt good.
But, as I'll post in a new thread, I went into the clubhouse and checked the sheet from the Back Marker Challenge from last Friday, and was surprised to see the name of a celebrity on the sheet, with a bloody good handicap. Anyway, let's not spoil that here, I'll post up some details so you can all have a guess as to who it was ...
