Lakeside Lodge - Lodge Course- 30/03/17
My golf wasn't good either. Two +5 holes and four +4s should give you a feel for my level of play! Slow play never helps, of course, nor does a grumbling back, but I made plenty of mistakes as well. I'm not, therefore, proposing to give my usual blow by blow account. I will just summarise it as awful and best forgotten. To be fair, I had been trying out a few subtle changes to my play and that might also have contributed to some of the poor shots. And as things got worse, I experimented all the more, having decided that I might as well use the round for practice and to try a few things, the score already being past redemption.
There were some plus points. I had been experimenting with swinging through in a more linear plane, rather than coming round my body, if that makes sense. This did produce an improvement in the direction of my shots, with less tendency to pull the iron shots. Of course, when trying something different, there will be a few things that don't work.
So I think I may have made a bit of positive progress with technique despite all the problems. But as a round of golf, as I've already said, it's best forgotten.
