Home on the range

Buoyed by the warm sunshine and a hectic day in work I decided to make a trip to the range tonight. I went to the Downshire Golf Course near Wokingham instead of my normal range and the change of scenery seemed to work wonders. I had one of those rare sessions where the swing was working well and the ball was under control.

Following on from my horrendous driving in the medal on Sunday I decided to really work on hitting the big dog. I was smoking them. A low penertrating flight and with a mere hint of a draw. I couldn't have been happier with the way it went.

I've got another practice session planned for Friday and we all know that the golfing gods will mock me. I can sense another session where the swing behaves and I hit the ball well and lo, I stand on the first tee in the Jack Jarrett at 8.10 on Saturday and my swing will revert back to a cat and dog fighting in a tumble dryer. Still we'll cross that bridge when we get there. For now I'm a contented golfer again and looking forward to getting my handicap cut again soon. Only the short game to sort now. Bring it on.

  1. Great to hear that the change of scenery worked for you. I know you practice like you play picking out targets, doing the full pre shot routine etc. I can't help thinking that tension is affecting your game on the course. Easier said than done but just try to hold onto the feeling you have from yesterday. Have a great hit tomorrow and I look forward to hearing about a return to an 11h/c on Sunday :)
