Fundamental progress

This week saw a continuation of work mostly on the practice tee. I submitted my second swing review for core rotation yesterday. It's not that I think I will pass the review but more that I want to get some feedback from my instructor. His advice last time was to work on maintaining right knee …

A bit of balance

Yesterday was mostly a day of recovery. My first 18 hole game without a cart will have to wait a little while. I decided to hit a bucket of about 30 balls on the practice fairway instead. As it happened one of the target greens was just under 100m from where I was hitting so …

Recovering bunkerholic

After yesterday's discombobulating performance I played thirteen holes at KH today. Two scungy shots up the first left a 60m pitch over the bunkers.
