So another weekend of pennants has gone by.
Again, got to 3 up after 9 and threw it away for another 2 and 1 loss.
It seems that I play great on holes when I don't need to, but can't take advantage of the lead I build. Its like I tense up and try to 'play smart' rather than keeping my rhythm going.
As a positive, I actually started to feel 'nervous' down the final few holes as I tried to keep the match going. I hadn't felt that so far this season.
I am starting to get
An adventure into smarter golf.
So today I had committed myself to playing some 'smarter' golf. I've known for quite a few rounds now that I get into most of my trouble off the tee.
So I decided to keep the driver in the bag for most of the round and take 3 iron off the tee. The comp was 4BBB Stableford.
Started on 10 today, which was one hole I had decided to actually hit driver. Push right, into next fairway. Semi-fat recovery into trees. Punch into bunker.
So last weekend was probably the worst round of golf that i've played. Ever.
And it wasn't the bad golf that I was playing that made it bad. It was the fact that I just got angry. Quickly. And I couldn't shake it. It just brought my whole round down. Up until the 9th hole when I NCR'd and left.
So what is it that does this?
I went out and played a few holes yesterday afternoon. 10,11,12,10,18. +2 off the stick. WTF?
Still not hitting the ball
So went out to hit some balls tonight. The usual array of shots for a while, but then really started to dial it in a bit. To the point that I was really starting to feel confident about the shot that I was going to hit.
Then I started to think about the weekend. Where this shot would be good, how I could play this hole etc. Couple that with two good rounds to drop out of C-grade, i'm wondering if I'm setting myself up for a dodgy round. I'm trying to clear my head a bit, and get into
Well after yesterdays round, i've dropped another 0.8 which is good.
Still playing off 23 which suits me well for Monthly Medal next week.
Tossing up whether to annoy the wife and play on Wed morning or not. There's a bit of stuff I need/want to get done around the house...
Will look to either have a range session or next lesson this week too...
