Romsey Junior Open!

Today I played in Romsey junior open. It was definitely a lot harder than I thought it would be, the course was short but narrow with minute greens and to make things even harder the course was rock solid from the recent scorching weather. Unfortunately I did't score very well but I actually felt like I played well. I shot 80 which is +11 gross and +5 handicap. Even with the disappointing result it was a good day out, I had great company and before the prize giving we had a carvery.

Swing Lesson with Charlie!

Today I had a swing lesson at Hall Grove school with my coach Charlie. It was very interesting and well spent time discussing certain things I need to focus on. We spent most of the lesson talking but I also hit some shots so that Charlie could see how I was swinging. Charlie said that he was really pleased with the progress I had made and the way I was currently swinging. Overall, a very helpful lesson with some valuable golfs tips and life lessons!
