I went and played in a local skins game and played like a 15 handicap that hits it really far.
I was missing greens from inside 100 yards, double crossing fades, missing 4 footers, hitting chips with no touch and even blading one.
I am telling you this for two reasons.
One, so you can make fun of me. The description I am giving is not doing it justice and one of the readers saw a round such as this last year when he came to watch me play.
The real reason I am telling you this is important for all of you and it’s a disease. I have been hitting a lot of balls lately trying to iron out years of residue crap left in my game. It didn’t dawn on me until I was driving in traffic on the way home that I was working on my swing/chipping motion/putting stroke, instead of playing golf.
I am not above stupidity and I will reiterate for the 100th time I am not sitting here in my ivory tower looking down at all of you. I am telling you I am the leading authority because I am one of the few people in golf that played at the highest levels, only to take every wrong turn possible trying to improve.
My game is still a work in progress, but I learned two huge things today. My default swing is still under the plane and stuck…but better.
THE GOLF COURSE IS FOR PLAYING GOLF
