Continued to work on rotation and weight shift drills through the middle/end of the week. Today I took my mom golfing as a belated Mother's Day gift. Also brought my son along for his first round ever.
Played a par 3 course. Shot one-under. Which I'm pretty proud of given that it was a SLOW round with a 5 year old. Struck the ball really well, and putting was solid. All the work I put in putting has definitely paid off. Back to the days when I was automatic from 5 feet and in.
Was really proud of the little guy. He didn't once show any signs of mental fatigue or boredom. He even got a round of applause from a group of 8 guys after his tee shot on the last hole.
And no, we weren't holding up play. This particular course has added a soccer type course that runs in tandem with their traditional 9-hole par 3 course. Kind of interesting and hadn't seen anything like that before. Essentially 18 holes with a soccer ball. Where the "hole" is essentially a 55 gallon drum embedded in the ground.
Day 76. Qualifier (stroke play) for my club's match play tournament. Shot an 86 and qualified
Also in happy news: my putting. No, I didn't make many more putts, but I did miss in a lot better places. My missed putts from long range are closer and my missed putts from 3-15' are typically going past the hole but leaving me with a tap-in (instead of 1-2'). I think this is a result of more putting practice and means the skill is improving because my misses are smaller.
