About this blog

You'll see in the title I haven't defined what better is exactly, only that this will be a journey to better. Who knows where the game of golf will take me and I'll be using this blog to reflect every couple days or so.

Improving, Slightly

So today I had another lesson and we worked a ton on alignment, and making sure that my upper body doesn't lean too far away from the target. This causes my centered turn to end up being around my hips and spine, but keeps my chest behind the ball which causes chunks, no matter how far over I slide my hips. Instead, now my hips slide and as a result my chest hangs back but is slightly ahead of the ball giving me clean contact. Not to mention, controlling my starting line is getting much easier.

First Rounds of the Year

I tried to fight my impatience, and see my instructor, John, before going out to play but I was just too excited to finally get to play Mistwood. I'm back from Arizona, possibly for good depending on how my financial situation looks for next school year, and I am planning on using this summer, mainly Monday, Wednesday and Friday to practice the living hell out of golf. So much that I get sick of it, though that is impossible.  Let me tell you guys, this course is beautiful, challenging and

    • @bkuehn1952, great post.  Yeah, that kinda cognitive dissonance affects most golfers to a varying degree. Some blame, some explain away and then there are some that blatantly deny any ownership of a particularly poor day on the course. A good friend of mine is fairly streaky - I guess you can say that about most weekenders like myself but his worst is 20+ shots than his best. He always says something at the end of a bad (for him) round, shooting let's say 104 - "yeah tough day, but we
    • Good point about the mental game and one of the many ways in which we con ourselves related to that.
    • You are correct, sir! Although, the first time I ever broke 80, I made a hole in one on the 5th and shot 78. I always kind of felt like I still hadn't broken 80. After all, without that 1 in a million shot I SHOULD have carded at least an 80, possibly higher being as the hole in one came on a hole that was particularly difficult for me. (To that point, I'd never even birdied it.)  I ended up braking 80 again a couple weeks later. I felt that was more legitimate, if that makes any sense
    • I don't know, I've told myself I should have shot worse than I did many times. But then, I tend to be hard on myself.
    • I agree completely.  The funny thing is, we never look back and say "I had no right to make that 50-footer on the second hole", or "I'll never chip one in from THERE again!"  I know I've never said "I shot 75, but it really should have been 80".  We take those for granted as well-deserved good results from improbable locations.
