Time to Re-Focus



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 was able to spend a little time on the range before that round.  Not enough to give me a 180 degree turnaround on my game but enough that I felt I can progress more.  I only hit 4 of 14 fairways today but I was able to dig out of trouble a few times and had 1 GIR and 6 nGIRs.  Still had a few blow-up holes and some really bad shots, but the bad shots did not cause me to totally collapse on future holes.  Had 3 Pars, 5 Bogeys, 6 Double-Bogeys, 2 Triple-Bogeys & 2 Quad-Bogeys.  Those Triples & Quadruples really hurt and this should round should have been in the high 90s instead of 103.  My putting really helped with a total of 32 putts and only 2 Three-Putts.  My goal in the next few weeks needs to be to get to the range.  

Not sure why, but my Game Golf would not load up.  It uploaded a round then said "No Data".  Oh Well, I at least kept some stats manually but really wanted to see more of the stats from GG.  Hopefully next time.

Well Stu... have you been hitting the range more often lately?  Personally, I'm a bit of a "range rat", playing 3 days a week and putting in range time the other days... though I'd like to dial back a bit from range days and turn those into course days.  We had a teaching pro years ago who never put in range time and would give me a hard time for practicing.  He claimed you improved your game on the course.  I'm beginning to agree with him.

You find what works for you. Simple. For me I hit a small bucket. Then chip and putt for 10-15 minutes. I then feel loose and go play. I’m limited to usually only 9 holes. ( darkness ) Have fun it’s a game to be enjoyed.
