Okay, some progress. Swing is probably 1/3 of the way to where I would like it. The number of GIR is increasing, and I can actually understand how beneficial it is to make fairways and greens.
I used to lose a dozen or more balls playing difficult courses. Now, I only lose a sleeve or so, and score in the low to high 90s, and score in the mid to high 80's on the easier ones.
I met a couple 2014 goals this year by not losing more than one sleeve and breaking 100 on any course I play. So far, so good, and I haven't even fully developed my new swing yet. It will take months of hard work to get it where I want it. I should post in the bogey thread http://thesandtrap.com/t/70872/bogey-golfer-only-thread-handicap-index-from-16-22-what-are-you-going-through-working-on-sob-stories. The only thing is that I do not consider bogey golf a "sob story", I'm pretty happy with it, and that's why I created this thread.
This thread is for all us bogey golfers especially the ones from the @rkim291968 thread. Let's ask for more advice as to how to improve even more!
