Well it has been an interesting two weeks, even though it has been a very non productive two weeks. Let’s get the mess over with, here are the scores: 78,81,77,76,76,76,84,87,76,79, and 82. Eleven rounds of golf in about 19 days and needless to say I am not close to executing the answer. The highlight of the period was when my partner Pete, in the 2-man scramble at South Park, holed an 80 yard wedge shot for an eagle 3 and we split a 250 dollar skin. My 87 was in the other tournament I played and I have not played well for most of the two weeks plus. Now has this been a learning experience, absolutely. Here is what I have learned.
1. I am an idiot
2. Why am I an idiot. Because not once, not twice, but three times during this time, I went into rounds with some preconceived ideas about my swing, and in each and every time these ideas failed to work and were abandoned by the third hole.
3. The second reason I am an idiot is because I am changing putters too much and if anybody knows that its not the putter but the puttee it is me. I am going to pick one putter and it is going to last for the entire year, come hell or high water.
4. I am not finding my that day swing fast enough to say the least. My method to do this is not working. So it is back to the drawing board.
Tomorrow will be June and for me this can not come fast enough. Maybe the turn of the calendar will give me a fresh start. Am I discouraged? Well, yes and no. Yes because I feel that I have wasted a period where I was able to play more golf than usual and instead of getting better, I just saw my game go downhill. No, because of my stupidity of going into three rounds with preconceived ideas of how I was going to swing and failing miserably, just reinforced my idea, that this is the answer to the game of golf. I am back to my normal routine of play with no tournaments for about 3 weeks,so hopefully I can find away to execute the answer. See you next week.
