I read the book and finally played my first round today since digesting it. It's also my first round in about a month, but I've been to the range working on all of the guidance from Evolvr earlier in the year (had to take a break for a bit due to personal reasons). The combination of Evolvr and the book have definitely changed my game. If I can play more regularly the rest of the summer, I'm hoping to really see scores drop.
Today, I felt like I didn't play as well as I should have, but my score was an 84- very respectable for my game so far this year. I used to use driver sparingly on this course and I used to lay up far too often on par 5's to a "comfortable" distance. Today, I was approaching greens with shorter irons from the rough more often by being more aggressive on the tees where there was room to recover, whereas I used to be hitting approaches more frequently with long irons. The idea of shot zones paid off a few times, knowing that my miss is usually short right, so that allowed me to avoid any true blow up holes. I had two double-bogeys that were bone-headed, but that was all on me. If I can shoot 84 on one of the toughest courses in my rotation (narrowest and toughest rough) while not swinging my absolute best, I'm looking forward to putting it all together on an easier track soon. I think if I play more aggressive, I could shoot a few strokes better than my best on each of those tracks. Time will tell.
