Thailand is HOT, and HUMID!

Holy cow it is insane when the sun is beating down. But, luckily today there was a slight breeze and some cloud cover. When the sun disappeared, it was actually quite nice outside. Went through about six bottles of water though. Thankfully provided by The Asian Tour.

Played my first practice round today at Majestic Creek Golf Club. An extremely fun course to play I must say, however, the greens are pretty laughable. Tremendously slow and don't roll very true. The only thing they got going for them, is that everyone has to play them. Wasn't really keeping score, but would say I probably kicked it around at 5 over today. Had a blast playing though. Was relaxed and calm all day. Just had a bit of trouble adapting to the heat. I was really uncomfortable for the first six holes or so. Once I put the non-stop sweating out of my mind, I played with the laid-back approach which I like to with this game. Didn't really concentrate on putting either. Just a getting the lay-of-the-land type of day. Tomorrow I'll hunker down and put a tad more effort into the round.

You should see the place where I'm staying. Springfield Beach Resort in Cha-am. I'm on the 16th floor and overlook the ocean. At night I fall asleep to the sound of the waves. Walk downstairs, passed the pool and across the street and I'm on the beach. Pretty damned bitchin'!

Here's the link to my photobucket account, I'll be adding pics daily.

    • A better way to say it would be using the leg to push the hip, here's a video of what I mean he's referring to the downswing but am I right in saying for the backswing should you do something similar, where you use your leg to push the hip rather than just trying to get the hip to turn clockwise   
    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.
