OK I brought home a 95 ... today's goal ... no penalties ... easy swings with the driver trying to cut out being way off the fairway ... results:
No penalties!!! (but very short drives ... )
Fairway 68% .. with the exception of on topper out of one tee box, the others were right next to the fairway ... first cut ..
Putts 1.84% ... really made some good 5-6 foot one putts (just put in a practice green in my back yard!)
Blowup holes ... 2 but was able to stop the bleeding at 8 ... (I have done worse)
What worked ... not trying to hit the ball hard and far, but a solid strike and straight
When I was 175+ out I opted for two shorter irons ... result was a more controlled shot from the fairway into the green, rather than from a bunker or some crazy place, like in the trees etc ... this seems to work the best. 100 yards in I am actually pretty good ...
Next steps, continue working the longer yardage ... while on the range I focus on the target and the hit, but on the course especially from the tee box, I see all the places I do not want to be and tend to look up a lot, and hold on to the club rather than looking at the ball and swing through it ... its a mental thing for me ... I have just nailed too many houses with a slice lately ... so I am very tentative
