    Yeah, don't be hard on yourself when you make a change and things don't work out as you plan. Your body still has the old tendancies, give it time and be paitent. it will come.

    After a lesson do a practice round. Where you can hit multiple balls to incorporate the lesson. Once it works in a practice round use it in a real round.

    Practice rounds are for working on game and learning a new course.

    That way the pressure of scoring is irrelevant to your mind and you can see how the new technique moves to the course.

    You play a new course, you often try a few balls on a hole, see if you can cut a dogleg etc.

    Practice rounds my 2 cents, after a lesson.

    I played on Monday at one of those fancy resort courses in the valley that I always wanted to play, The Phoenician. The course is very tight with a number of blind shots, and lots of elevation change. I didn't need a caddy for this course I needed a Sherpa. One par three was playing 185 yards, but had a drop of about 100 ft. Hit a 7 iron to the back edge. Another par three was playing 103 with a 100 ft. drop. Hit a half swing SW to the middle. Lots of bunkers and water with wind gusts of about 20 mph. Shot a 92 with 4 lost balls.

    That's a dang sight better than I would have done on a course like that. I'm playing tomorrow in Arizona not sure which course the father in law is taking me to though. I'm excited because the two I have played or there before we're way better than the ones I get to play here in Oklahoma

    Ok. Got out there and they had a tournament going on. They were teeing off 7 minutes behind us. I played like crap at first because I was rushing, there were 4 of us and they were in groups of 2. After I relaxed I started to par most holes and an occasional bogey. Then the wind blew in hard... All in all I was pretty happy, may be getting to play once a day through sat or sun. Used my father n law's r11 with a stiff shaft set to the lowest loft and started drilling some amazing dead straight drives, can't wait to get my maltby and get it shafted.

    Perfect fine day for golf today, so why not knock off from work before lunch lol.
    Played 18, managed a 35 & 37 for a +4. Haven't played a round that good for bloody ages. Still had 2 doubles but had 4 birdies over a 5 hole stretch which brought it back into line.

    Well we got to take our time today so I shot a lot but still not as good as I normally do. First 9 were amazing, even had a 280 drive (downhill and with the wind) then I blew up a hole and let it get to my head. My score card showed 88 the app on my phone showed 99 so idk what I actually played. I def need to work on my long irons because I couldn't make good contact at all, kept duffing the hell out of em. All in all still a great time, look forward to gaming it tomorrow too

    3 over with no birdies. I hit the ball well. My lag putting was really good, I just couldn't make anything. Greens were perfect too.

    played with warbirdlover and ssssmokin, yesterday. Was ugly for me at least. I think sssmokin said I shot a 39 42, not sure. I lost my driver feel all together, and I thnk I have been going after the ball a little to much. Either way, gonna hit the gym this morning then the range for a few hours and hopefully... fix it, otherwise its gonna be a sad golf season. I was playing great a week ago. Every round (prolly 15-20) was around -3 to +5. Now I'm lucky to keep it under 84.
