Weekly update

Monday - Playing fields - 7 iron block practise 50 balls, Longest 102 yards, average 65 yards.

Tuesday - Playing fields - 7 iron block practise 50 balls. Longest 118 yards, average 85 yards.

Thursday - Playing fields - Wood session - Rescue, 3 wood and driver. Good plane and back swing. Mostly straight and good distance with all 3. Longest was driver from in front of clubhouse to back fence.

Saturday - Academy at TGGC. Played holes 1-3.

Best hole was the 1st. Teed off into strong wind from front of tee and drove to 150 yard marker (out drove others). Used 3 wood and hit good low shot which landed 5 yards from front right of green. Chipped on with 9 iron and ended up 10 foot from hole but above. First putt was tricky down hill but slipped past right edge. Missed silly 3 foot back up hill and pushed it right!

Worst hole was 3rd. Drove high right towards trees into rough. Rescue shot got caught in trees. Fortunately was able to get out of trees with 9 iron. Then hit good rescue to about 10 yards of front of green. Chipped on with 9 iron but a little strong and went 20 foot past pin. 4 putted!!

Practise - week ending 05/02/12

My practice has been a lot better this week, we've  been to the playing fields 3 times and done 7 iron block practice. We went to the club for 2 hours Saturday afternoon - I started with chipping to 30 yrds but could seem to get the swing right and it was not very good. We then did some general bunker practise which was okay followed by some pitching which was also okay. We did N,E,S,W putting and I scored 12/16 at  3 foot and 7/12 at 6 foot.

saturday golf practice with Charile

On Saturday me and my dad went to see Charlie. Soon as we arrived Charlie arrived we then went into the restaurant and sat down and talked about the past month, about when we practice and the different exercises that I can do. Soon after we went to the range and practiced block practice which I didn’t know about at the time. We did that for about 1hour and half then we went to the putting green and practice different distances. Once we had done the practice we went onto the course. The first hole went really bad but it gradually got better and towards the end I got some really long putts, then it came to an end so me and my dad went home.

New Clubs

So second week back at the Academy yesterday and before the session started Dad sorted out my new clubs. A straight swap for my old size for the next size up with the addition of a 3 wood!

Whilst the clubs are nice and new they are longer and heavier which of course meant I played rubbish!

On the up side I now need a new bag and trolley as the new clubs are too big :-)

First time back to Academy

As you know from a previous post I had to stop playing golf for over 4 weeks in November due to a problem with my legs. Since I was able to start again in December I have been trying to practise 2-3 times a week just grabbing 10 or 20 minutes after school before it gets dark or going up to the club at the weekend for an hour or so.

Yesterday was the first time back at the Academy and it went really well - the practise paid off! I played as well as the last time I was at Academy back in October, it was like I had never had the long break. Even better was the fact that Terry told Dad my clubs are too short and that I would need some longer ones!
