Have you been able to work out what you are doing now different to when it wasn't working?

 

I think so Rob. Worked on maintaining the triangle or staying connected with the backswing. That, and a decent shoulder turn, provided width and a better swing plane.

 

The issue was the transition but by starting the downswing by a lower body shift, and in my case keeping some weight on the back foot, I am now able generate power again.

 

And I guess, when you get your confidence back, the mind doesn't get in the way. At least, I hope that is what has happened.....onward to tomorrow's round. :)

When you dress good, you look good, and when you look good you feel good, and when you feel good you play good and then you're confident. And if you don't play good, at least you look good and there's your confidence right there

That's a dandy thought, isn't it?

He gave me 1 shot.
But he could hit the ball 50m longer than me.

Definitely so. I had competitors rock up to the first tee saying they'd been playing crap recently. Defeated themselves.
