Day 123. Yesterday (10/21) was the second miss within 30 days (yesterday + 10/13; previous miss was more than 30 days ago).
Today, I did 45 minutes of putting practice, around the clock drills from 4', generally around 24 putts to finish the twelve, thus averaging around 50% from 4' -- not good enough.
Why am I able to do the ruler drill so well and miss so many within 4'? Do they break that much?
We've been playing at Anetsberger golf course in Northbrook, Illinois. It's a nice little par 3 course operated by the Northbrook Park District. I believe that Bill is playing a Wilson Staff Duo Soft ball - he's a Wilson Man through and through! I'm kind of a Titleist Man myself. I have a number of balata balls stashed away, but have had great results from playing ProV1's. Keep in mind that we're playing a par 3 so we're not using any woods. If we were playing holes long enough to warrant a wood, I'd have one of those vintage Titleist balatas on a tee in a heart beat. Can't beat the feel of a balata!!!
