After a long, forced lay off from golf, I played 54 holes over the past few days. For the past few months I have been practicing, (<150 yards) leading up to this past week's play. All in all I was quite pleased, with rounds of 86. 84, and 89. My goal was to break 90 at least once. All these scores came on quality courses. My short game saved me quite a few times, while my driving put me in some bad spots to play from. I averaged 31.9 putts per green once I managed to put the ball on said green. The 89 was my last round, where I just ran out of gas. I played the back nine like an old, tired dog. I also walked all three rounds with my Clic Gear trolley. Right now I am sitting at home nursing some sore muscles in my legs, and back. These are good pains, and will pass in a day or two. I had few keys I worked on during practices. One was not trying to swing as fast as I use to. (I can't) Second was keeping my elbows level in my back swing to stay on my swing plane. Third was my hands leading the club head through impact, and my fourth swing key was to make sure I did not swing outside to in on my down swing. I did not hit the ball as far as I use to. I figure I lost 1-1/2 clubs, but I made that loss up with some decent accuracy.........except for my driver swing...lol Met up with some fine folks while I was out there, which of course is always a plus. Pretty sure my wife was as happy as I was just to see me back out chasing that little white ball. Now it's on to improve on my driver swing, and gain some of that club loss back.
