Had my fifth golf lesson with Lee at the Canadian on Tuesday. I told him I was playing against Doc the following day, so I needed some quick pointers. He told me I wasn’t quite there yet, but to concentrate on only one thing – “turning my hands over” when I hit the ball.
So yesterday I played the Canadian with Doc, and I thought about only that – “turning my hands over”. I did a good job of it. But I think I need to get out a little more, play a little more, to really get the hang of my new swing. For the most part, I was striking the ball very well. But my aim was quite a bit off. I lost a LOT of balls in the woods and the water.
Also, with my new swing and new clubs, I no longer have any idea how far I hit things. What used to be a 7-iron shot is now a 9-iron shot. And my 7 goes over the green and then past the woods and then into the water. So I’m getting there – slowly. And I will win – eventually. But I have not yet beaten Doc, nor do I have the ability to do so consistently. Yet. And I lost. By 12.
