First, I was surprised there weren’t more comments from the peanut gallery yesterday. I was hoping to get some more feedback.
I had planned on filming 6 or 7 videos yesterday on various subjects and putting the first up today, but it was overcast and the wind was blowing, so the audio and video would have been poor. Will try to do them today and put the first up tomorrow.
Had a fun round Monday. I am still working on getting to a better place mentally as far as confidence is concerned and Monday helped. I played a 6900 yard course with a slope of 140 and I hit 18 greens and 3 par 5’s in two. The only par 5 I didn’t hit in 2 was a 650 into a slight headwind and I hit driver driver within 20 or so yards of the front.
The only two fairways I missed were by 6 inches and one that landed in the fairway and kicked onto the cart path.
I was inside of 30 feet on all birdie and eagle putts, but maybe 4 or 5 holes.
Was playing for fun with my father in law, so I wasn’t really reading putts that carefully or I could have gone really low. Ended up with 66….with 33 putts…LOL.
The most important part is this is usually the kind of course that gives me fits because it is not visually pleasing, but I trusted my swing and just hit the ball. I even hit 3-wood well and that is not a common occurrence.
My swing is getting near a point where I can just do it and trust it. There is still some conscious effort going on, but I don’t think I am far from just hitting the ball and finding it.
My course management has gotten geometrically better as I get more comfortable with my swing.
Now all I have to do is work on “playing” golf, short game and inner confidence.
You will enjoy tomorrow’s video. It is going to be about the path the right shoulder should take on the downswing to create a 90* shoulder turn. It is not swing crack, it is nothing more than a guide to help you understand a free shoulder turn on the downswing.
