I’ve been down I South Africa for about two weeks now, last time I came down here I bought a set of old Maxfli revolution clubs, midsize heads, dried out grips, true temper El-70 shafts regular flex. The shafts might be a little to weak, but that has helped me to focus more on getting the swing right then on swinging really fast.
At home I’ve been playing titleist ap2’s with stiff-300 shafts.
I’ve always been hitting a slight fade at least with the “woods” due to the fact that I’ve been coming over the top a bit, Don’t’ do that anymore due to the good advice I've gotten here, I have some issues with stress on the course meaning that I’m causing myself to stress and rush through my routines.
I played two courses while down here Howick country club, and Sakaboole.
Started out on Sakaboole, a strange golf course, par 5 on par 5 long, the fairways wasn't in good shape.
Howick on the other hand was in good shape but the greens where hard and fast, I don't know how many times I Landed the ball well before the pin and saw it shoot of the green. I scored okay though, 81-78-81 so I'm happy
On my last round there I was fortunate to play with a young man who's going to start playing on the sunshine tour in January and his caddy, that was exciting, however I got a bit caught up with trying to hit the ball as long as they did (silly of me) an lost a couple of strokes on that. I learned a lot about what I need to do to play better I need to Play my game.
Anyhow, the season in Sweden is just around the corner I’m really looking forward to it.
Love this game (most days)
