Its been too long since I updated this blog but it is March 2022 and time to reconsider goals & plan. Looking back last year did not achieve much of what I wanted. I lost most of the weight I was looking for but put some back on over the winter. I'm not giving up on that, just need to moderate my portions. As for golf, I did AimPoint as planned and that was time & money well spent. Putting improved last year but the rest of my game was still inconstant and did not improve as I had h
Well, The past 6-7 weeks has not been good for my game. I could list many excuses but bottom line is I cannot expect to improve if I do not do the practice. Other that the practice green before my league I have not been to a range once for quite some time. I will look for the positive, my putting is the best area of my game and it shows that practice can and does work so if I make time for the range I should improve other aspects of my game. Also, this morning I met up with @dennyjonesand wa
Its been longer than anticipated since my last update but I have been busy with both golf & my day job.
My transformation is continuing but nowhere near complete. On the good side, my putting has been fantastic. Still a few 3-Putts but they are mostly when I have a very long first putt, say 50' or so. Still, I have sunk a few of those super long putts to the astonishment of myself and others. The big difference is my confidence. I now always believe I can get it very close no matte
I did not plan on so long between posts but I’ve been busy with Life, Work & Golf. I’ve never practiced so much on golf and I think I am getting things figured out. At least I need to have that hope otherwise I will get very depressed if I conclude I will never get better a this game.
I finally took my AimPoint Putting lesson on April 9th. Much later than hoped but it was worth waiting for. I had a couple concerns with AimPoint before my lesson but based on many positive comments I
Well, things with the golf game are a little frustrating but I am trusting in my pro. When I started this series with him, we discussed my goals and we agreed I was not looking for a quick fix. He is working to make little tweaks in my swing. I’m waiting for my latest lesson video and will post that but in general he initially worked on me completing my rotation on the backswing to position A4, take a brief pause to and start my hip rotation before starting my downswing and not “Swinging Out”
I’ve laid out a lot of goals and activities and now the plan is in action, but not without some further tweaks. I was cautioned about taking my full swing lessons too close together and not allowing for sufficient practice time. Yesterday I re-booked several lessons to stretch them out. I did lose the “5th Free Lesson” but I should be getting more value out of the four.
I took my 1st Full Swing lesson last Tuesday and focus was on the driver and I plan on doing the drill he gave me repea
My overriding goal is, of course, to lower my scoring and the unstated goal is to move from the B Flight to the A Flight in my league. I am not going to repeat my initial 2021 goals here but you can see them here if you like. There is a fair amount of detail on my game from last year.
It would be arrogant of me to think that my initial plan is so perfect that it should be carved in stone and never allowed to change. The plan has barely begun and thanks to TST that plan is
I’ve decided to create this blog to chronical what I hope is a major transformation in my golf game. I am not an experienced writer and have no idea if anyone will find this of interest but I am forging ahead anyway. I hope you enjoy and I look forward to your thoughts & comments.
I have been golfing for many years. I took 2 lessons in high school but played very little after that year until 2000 when my wife & I planned to start golfing together and purchased some real cheap clu
I wish I would have, I need to focus a little on the Work/Life Balance equation.
I really feel I should spend time practicing what he told me last time before I ask for more advice. Maybe sometime this spring, just not March/April. That should give me enough time to get comfortable with the change he already advised.
Sorry to hear about your mishap at the driving range. I had a driver push me into a Jersey barrier on my way back from Florida a couple months ago. No injury, but no fun at all.
You two are definitely dedicated coming from Michigan to Erie, but Erik is good! I want to get back to Erie before the season gets into full swing, pun intended.
You should have drove up this way to play on the simulator. Just today I was thinking about that trip and my priority pieces. It's a work in process but today I felt that some of that was coming together.
I'm not opposed to another road trip. Erik was very accommodating, and the lesson was definitely worth the trip. Maybe next time I'll get fit for an Edel putter too!
