Halfway through March and starting to get a bit down that I’ve not managed to get in a full 18 yet. I went out on Thursday with the intention of getting it done but the combination of playing a new course and it still being so wet underfoot overcame the glorious weather that blessed the day and it turned into a 9 hole slog. Then it rained for most of the afternoon anyway!
Oops! This one is late as well. Not that that is too much of a problem but I’ll try and get back to Mondays from here on out.
This week has been really good for my golf. Following on from my lesson covered in last weeks review I’ve managed 3 full swing practice sessions and some putting and short game time and I’ve had no recurrence of my slicing issue. I’ve still got work to do to groove the habits back into my swing routine but I can at least imagine myself being able to complete a round now. It’s definitely pushing me to speak to my pro more often and certainly if i’m noticing unwanted trends with my shots as it only took him 5 minutes to sort out my weeks of frustration.

Now technically this post is late, but this one at least was intentional. With my ongoing flip flopping between hitting the ball well and hitting the ball OB right I had a session booked with the pro for this evening when he was back from holiday. I didn’t want to post again to say that I’d had another mixed week when all I’m doing is practicing alone and going nowhere.
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.
Week 5 all done and dusted. A week without playing but that did include a couple of range sessions and a half hour lesson. Things are going really well with my full swing although i do have to keep reminding myself to control my tempo to allow the release of my hands to happen at the right time.

Another trip to the very nice Furzeley Golf Course and the conditions were slightly better this time although still very much in UK winter golf conditions with all tees off mats. After a poor practice session beforehand the actual on course performance turned out pretty good. I didn’t really manage to capitalize on my good shots but still managed to take a good chunk of shots off last times score.
Following on from the round review on Saturday it’s time for another summary of whats gone on this week. I managed only 1 session at the range after work during the week but did attend the regular roll-up lesson on Saturday and played 9 holes after (which included my first birdie of 2017) so still managing to get some golf time in around the weather.
