It's alright, like reading everyone's thoughts.
Seve_ Mission To More Consistency
Posted 23 November 2016 - 04:59 PM
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.
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

"tool down" is now my favourite phrase

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

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.
I am mid table mediocrity !

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.
