There is good news, bad news and good news.

The good news:

I finally have a swing that feels good, looks good and produces and reproduces good shots. I honestly haven’t had all of this (especially the feel good part) in 10 years or more.

The bad news:

I have forgotten how to “play” during this quest to find a swing I can feel comfortable with.

The good news:

Having a swing I finally feel comfortable with will free me up to relearn how to “play” golf.

That is the point of today’s post. You need a swing that you feel comfortable with. Aesthetics are secondary to feel and shot production. I have been suffering from a lack of all three for a long time…LOL.

    Since you just rolled out a 62 the other day, I doubt you have total amnesia!

      When you are hitting it 340, straight and making putts, not hard to shoot low on a short course.

      Can I shoot 71 on a 7300 yards course when I have my “C” game? That is what I am talking about.

    I find that when I go out and play when I am completely relaxed is when I play the best. I need to have no tention in my arms and shoulders. It’s almost like I have to hit each shot with a bit of “I don’t care what happens”. I shot my best round a few days ago at my course using this approach (78). Of course, I tried to replicate that a couple days later and shot 86.

    Golf’s a funny game.

    Monte, Stop being so freaking anal, and play golf you have the stuff

      Not being anal, just trying to help others learn from my mistakes and journey.

    If you happened to tape the Golf Channel “Playing Lessons,” go back and watch the one that Geoff Ogilvy did…that was when just the player was talking, and they didn’t clown around with celebrities.

    Best quotation: “My body knows more about golf than I do…just gotta get out of its way.”
