On the positive side, my scores are getting a BIT better and I even broke 80 for the first time at St. Catharines this year, shooting 77 on Sunday from the Blue tees after an 82 the day before.
I then got the rare opportunity to play some weekday golf, getting out of work a bit early to play Grand Niagara with Jeff, Steve and Cam on Monday afternoon. I somehow scraped around in 81 shots, as my pitching and chipping are at least presentable. It was tough losing the match, as Steve and I lost to Cam and Jeff on the 17th hole which meant we had to spring for pizza, wings and beer but it was a really fun day despite my pathetic display on the course.
I still can’t hit iron shots or hybrids for some reason and a lot of flaws have crept into my swing. Cam, the assistant professional at our club, gave me a couple of simple tips that seemed to work out well near the end of that round.
I even got out for a quick nine on Tuesday evening with regular partners in crime Cal and Harry but again, the shotmaking turned putrid, with me hitting ONE GREEN IN REGULATION but somehow managing a 41 from the tips.
I’m just completely at a loss and have zero confidence in my game and my swing. Hopefully, the three day weekend coming up gives me something positive to talk and think about!
