Another update. We had a match tonight that is about an hour away. I drove through heavy rain and hail to get to the match. It was raining when we got off the bus. It was raining during the rules meeting. It was raining as we teed off. So, I guess you all have gotten the idea that it was raining. In fact, at times, it was really pouring. My #1 struggled some and was not feeling well. My #2 was shooting par. That's amazing in these conditions. My #3 was shooting better than bogey golf which, again was amazing in these conditions. Now for the shocker, my #4, #5 and #6 were all just over the pace for bogey golf. While all of you might think that it is dumb that I am so excited, that's outstanding for my young team when 4 of my 8 came into this year having never played 9 holes. My #1 and #2 had just finished their 5th holes when the lightening came out with a pretty good display. So, everyone was called in and with the lightening and rain, the match was halted. We were ahead of the other teams as I went player to player for how they were doing. Still, I am so proud of them. This was a great effort in seriously bad conditions. When my drenched crew got on our bus, one young sophomore said, "Coach, attitude is everything." She said that she decided that if she was going to play in a rain like that, she was going to do well.
@Joe Mama Yep. requires a bit of finesse and lots of trust. I do the same, but at top, I allow fingers to "grab" just a little, mostly for control yet retaining that loose feeling all the way through the finish. My weight distribution is more like 65/35. Rotational torso swing staying connected through the shot.
I am going to attempt the 5 minute a day challenge in September. The next few days could be interesting with a tropical system moving in, but I'm going to give it a go.
I'm going to go back through the things that people have given me here to work on to see if I was ever able to incorporate them or if I reverted.
