Week 7: The Lull



Another week in the books, and almost halfway through the semester! Unfortunately I was only able to get out to the course once this week due to weather and just a load of schoolwork I had to catch up on, so this is going to be one of the shortest posts I’ve made so far.

The one day I was able to get to the course was Wednesday, but I made the most of it. I spent over two hours at the course Wednesday afternoon.

The first hour and a half or so was spent watching guest and MU PGM graduate Michael Manavian teach on the range. He packed a lot of information into each lesson, and to wrap up he filmed a one-minute video of himself recapping the lesson that the golfer could access anywhere and any time: on the range, on the course, or on the way to/from the course. Watching him teach was intriguing for sure, and it’s making me consider whether I want to be a teaching pro.

After that, I went over to the chipping green near the first tee and worked on chips and pitches for about 45 minutes. I went back and forth between clubs (primarily the 50, 54 and 60) and between pins, allowing me to practice dozens of different shots. 

Wednesday was one of those rare perfect afternoons: about 70 degrees with a little bit of cloud cover. The only reason I left the course was because I was hungry, otherwise I would’ve stayed at least another hour. It was great.

As for this coming week, it’s supposed to be nice, but a bit cool the first half of the week. My goal is to get to the course at least four days this week, even if it’s only for 30 mins for a quick range session or short game work, and form a practice plan that I will implement starting the week after my birthday (two weeks from today).

I haven’t been doing a great job holding myself accountable for my golf game so far this semester, but all that changes this week!
