  1. Agree with this. If I don’t warm up beforehand, it’ll take me three holes before I feel like I can take a full swipe at the ball. Almost never good for the score
  2. Yep, that's me. Thanks for the wishes!
  3. Wow! I would seriously consider not playing golf at all during weekends if this was the case here.
  4. Long time without posting, or playing as much as I used to, but this challenge caught my eye. Shot an 88 at my home course today with three sixes, no sevens. Which I think just qualifies me as having completed the challenge, being an 18 handicapper. Summer is in full swing here , so I hope to get out a bit more regularly
  5. 43 out, 49 home = 92. Very strong sou'wester blowing across the course. Was fairly pleased with the round, all things considered.
  6. Shot an 87 today 42 out, 45 home Two doubles, four pars , one birdie, eleven bogies. Not a bad round.
  7. Thanks! Turning 50 today. Now eligible to play veterans golf tournaments here. Yep, that's become my one saving grace for many rounds......
  8. June 30th:-Very wet here today. Managed 5 mins full swing practice outdoors between showers. Simply focused on making 70% speed centred turns and swinging through. June daily practice challenge completed.
  9. June 29th:- 15 mins full swing practice, 3 wood. Still focused on 70% speed, and keeping the backswing compact.
  10. June 28th:- 20 Mins full swing practice, 3 wood. Keeping the swing at what feels like 70% is definitely helping with maintaining spine angle/ Key #1 during the backswing.
  11. When I sold my fitted set of Mizuno muscle backs, for a set of G.I Cobra amp cell irons. The fact that I then went on to shoot my lowest round ever didn't quite dull the small, insistent voice that I was somehow "cheating."
  12. June 27th:- 10 mins full swing practice, 3 wood. 5 mins wedge swings. Concentrated on making slow, deliberate back swings, maintaining address posture.
  13. June 26th:- 10 mins full swing practice, 3 wood. Concentrated on Key #1, especially from A2 to A4,to prevent "standing up" during the backswing, which is the priority piece I'm working on.
  14. June 25th: 5 mins Full swing practice, 3 wood; and 5 mins wedge swings. Focused on slow swings to a good A4 position, then swinging to a complete finish.
  15. June 24th:- 10 mins full swing practice. Making controlled swings at 70% speed, while maintaining Key #1.
  16. June 23rd:- Full swing practice in the nets for 10 mins. Focused on making a full shoulder turn while maintaining a steady head position.
  17. June 22nd: 10 mins driver swings on the lawn. Worked on making a slow backswing and feeling the correct position at A4.
  18. I'm conning myself when I think that my handicap is going to come down significantly over time. Yes, it does fluctuate a bit from summer to winter, but the main reason it is stagnant is because my current practice regime is keeping my swing at the status quo. I don't have time to practice more than 10 mins a day (average), and that is without hitting balls - I swing at a tee peg stuck in the lawn. I believe (and I may be wrong) that this simply isn't enough time or quality to make significant swing changes and get them to stick. I'm slowly getting comfortable with things being the way they are.
  19. June 21st:- Midwinter solstice here. Practiced 20 minutes with Driver and 3 wood. Focused on making a relaxed shoulder turn during the backswing to prevent me raising my head.
  20. June 20th: 15 mins full swing practice, outdoors, driver and 3 wood. Again working on Key #1.
  21. June 19th:- 10 mins full swing practice, Driver and 3 wood. Experimented on ball position at address for the best contact with each club, followed by Key #1 work.
  22. June 18th: 15 mins full swing practice, focused on keeping the club head outside the hands from takeaway to A2.
  23. June 17th:- 10 mins full swing practice, 7 iron. Worked on slowing down the backswing to enable more correct positioning at A4.
