Grip is not great here but this is better with the "stay bent over" feeling. I have to set my feet squarer (not left), aim the clubface just a little right, grip properly, and stay bent over on the swing. And have fun too.

Looks like you took out some extension in your backswing Natalie, I know how uncomfortable that can feel. Good work.

[VIDEO]https://youtu.be/p1aU_Sloh-g[/VIDEO] Worked on backswing for awhile and going to start on downswing soon. Bit shorter, club not across the line, better pivot without tipping forward a bunch.

Nice, Lexi Thompson-ish around impact.


Yeah, we're trying to make sure the jumping isn't occurring before the "forward" though.

It is getting better, the backswing. I might almost be starting to overdo where the shaft goes. I sometimes still forget and my head goes down and forward a little. I have to feel like I stay a little taller and that my head goes back a little bit.

I broke 50 from the red tees for the first time yesterday! I'm pretty happy. It was the red tees at Whispering, the front nine. The front nine measures just over 2300 yards.

Hole 1 - Par 4 - Good drive, heeled thin second shot, and sadly two chips before I two-putted for a 6. I keep a personal par of 6 for every hole and so keeping score is easy: I was E. At the end I take my total relative to 54.

Hole 2 - Par 3 - Good 7-iron to just short of the green in the fairway. I didn't hit my putt hard enough so I had a 15-footer for par that I missed. The greens were slow! -2

Hole 3 - Par 5 - Good tee shot, pushed a little. Was a foot above my feet so I advanced my 3W as far as I could, then hit a hybrid to just short of the green. My fourth went to about 15 feet and I nearly made the par putt. Tapped in for 6. -2

Hole 4 - Par 4 - Good tee shot just pushed a little. I had about 75 yards over the creek to the green and I stuck it to ten feet. Just missed the birdie putt but a 4 went a long way. -4

Hole 5 - Par 4 - Good drive a little tiny bit right, good 7I from the light rough to just off the front of the green, putted from the fringe to a foot and tapped in for 4. -6

Hole 6 - Par 3 - Pushed a driver again but it got near the green behind a tree. I bladed the pitch a little but it went on the fringe. I two-putted from 20 feet for a 4. -8

Hole 7 - Par 5 - Good drive to the left, decent 3W a bit to the right. Thinned the next one but it went to about 60 yards out, and I hit a good shot that stuck too much short of the flag. I lipped out the 30-footer and tapped in for a 6. -8

Hole 8 - Par 4 - Good drive, one of my best. Plugged. Thinned the 3W but it went out okay. I had 105 yards to the flag downhill but shanked my 7I trying to hit it really hard. I dropped and hit a ball to the front fringe, then three-putted for an 8. :-( -6

Hole 9 - Par 4 - Good drive one of my best on that hole. Pulled my 3W left though and heeled it so it was on a big side slope. Chipped back to the fairway and then bladed the wedge a little to the back right fringe. First putt was well short, so was the second. Tapped in for a 7. -5

So -5 from 54 is 49! :-D:banana:

And the best part was that I played all 9 holes in 40 minutes! I ran back to and from the cart between shots and tried to take my time when I got to the ball to do my routine.

And I got $30 for breaking 50 by the end of the year (plus $1 each for my pars)!

I knew she was off to a good start, and every hole through the 7th confirmed that she was on a good pace. I didn't say anything for fear of spoiling it or alerting her to it. I even got attitude when I told her to recap her round by writing down the scores afterward… until eventually she realized she'd broken 50. :-)
