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.

So much that I get sick of it, though that is impossible.  Let me tell you guys, this course is beautiful, challenging and

    • At my home course they do it for you.  They move every set of tees up in the Winter... they get it.  Less hard on the ego that way... 😁
    • I play year round and our course has pretty good drainage. We get wet conditions where they don't allow carts on the fairways and the iron shots are pretty iffy. If you are playing at a distance that makes it no fun to play try going down to the next tee box. That could make the difference. When it gets pretty sloppy I go down one tee box and it makes the course close in distance to when we play in the summer. I only do this on the holes that in the summer are fairly long for me not the shorter
    • Simple rule that worked for me Grip it and Rip it! Then a 1 putt
    • Interesting topic. I appreciate the science of the golf swing. It impresses me the knowledge espoused on this site from the clearly scientific thinkers. That was never my strong point. Not that I don't "get" it, or understand what is being said but I do believe there comes a point where it gets to much. I'm more of a visual learner so that may be part of it. I tend to learn seeing what @iacas or @mvmac are trying to say as opposed to reading a post on it. The great thing about this site is that
    • I don’t mind wind/rain but soft muddy conditions mess with my iron and wedge contact.  Lots of fat or short shots!
