Although this shot turned out ok, the set up was awful. The ball and subsequently my hands are way to far ahead at address. After looking at the video I made some adjustments and started hitting the ball with some consistency off the tee. I received this little HD video camera for Christmas and am just now getting a chance to use it here and there. Mary (fiance) and I got some decent HD video of our swings this evening, the attached is just 1 of several videos we took.
I was able to get in 3 rounds this week, a 39 on the Metcalfe 9 Wednesday night, a god awful 87 at Nation on Saturday and a 39 this evening on the Metcalfe 9. On a side note, Mary shot her low round of the year this evening with a 47 on the Metcalfe 9.
My 39 on Wednesday was a pretty good round that consisted of 3 mistakes which cost me. I missed a short par putt on 1 from a missed green, a short par putt on 5 from a missed green and a short par put on 8 from a missed green. My up and downs average took a hit on this round. Other than that I was all fairways and greens.
Yesterday I had the chance to get out and play National Golf Club in Curran ON. I received a free round by joining their twitter page and had to use it by yesterday. There was a lot I liked about this course, none of which included how I played, because I played awful. The club house was big and seemed to have all the amenities one would expect at a golf course. The green fees were pretty good, ($32.00 + tax after 1:30pm) and the course conditions were above average for courses in the same price range. The only thing I didn’t really like about the course was the amount of dog legs. It seemed like almost every other hole was a dog leg, some holes even had two dog legs. I also didn’t like the fact I played like crap, but that had nothing to do with the course. I would recommend checking it out if you don’t mind the drive, I know I would go back, if only to prove I can shoot better than an 87.
Tonight we got in a quick 9 after dinner, I didn’t hit the ball very consistently, but managed to hit 6 greens. The main erros were tee shot on 1 (led to a bogey),and 3put on 6 (double bogey). As I said above, Mary shot her low round of the season and did it in fine fasion parring 3 of the last 4 holes to shoot 47.
Loss of the week: Instead of a find of the week I have done a loss of the week as I have managed to lose all my rain gear. Not so much as lost as left behind. It appears that I have left all my rain gear (munk bag cover, jacket, pants)in my hotel room in Vancouver, where it was drying in the closet and forgot about. I called the hotel but so far no luck. So, this week, instead of a great find I had a great loss. On the bright side it might lead to some new rain gear (fingers crossed).
Thats all for this week
