The first 18 hole round is done. A full 5 weeks since I last even played 9 holes I got out to a course and finished 18 holes. It felt great. The score wasn’t what I’d hoped for when I started this back at the turn of the year, or compared to how I was playing at the tail end of last season, but my swing has been through a lot problems in that time so it is something to build from.

A combination this one. My usual Saturday roll up lesson was turned into an on course thing as there was only a few of us. Now this wasn’t quite what I’d hoped for as I’ve been struggling with my full swing during my range time and I really wanted to go over some of those things with the pro to try and resolve them. However there’s no place to play golf like on a course so out with went to tackle my issues in a live fire exercise.

And now the second round of the year is completed too. This one was at my current home course but the conditions and the outcome were fairly similar to my round last week. This time the ground was not quite as wet but there were still a few temporary tees in place. The weather was pretty clear which meant it was cold and the wind that was around tended to be a bit blustery but nothing unusual for the time of year.

So my first round of 2017 has now been completed. I played the front 9 holes at Furzeley Golf Course yesterday with a friend and it was a nice day considering the time of year but the ground was very wet after some recent rain. Still the view off the first tee looked pretty good and I was excited to get the year underway.
