  1. Nice to see I'm not the only one who is OCD when it comes to cleaning clubs. Something about it is relaxing. Dog and I set up shop in the garage while I clean my clubs he stares out watching the neighbourhood. IMG_0733.JPG

  2. Well after several so so rounds and going through my written down stats it's pretty obvious that I need to be working my approaches in. I've moved away from as many drivers to a few more 3 woods which has helped with my fairways, but I'm really struggling sticking or making good approach shots into greens...anyway to the range I go and hopefully get some more consistency built into my swing.

  6. My wife and I went to St. Lucia for ours. Went to a sandals resort (think it was sandals la toc) which has a golf course and a spa (perfect spot). There were lots of extra things to do such as sight seeing trips and activities which were amazing as well. Definitely highly recommended we loved the trip and have a ton of great memories from it.

    It cost us about 4 cdn but we didn't pay for flights. If you have any questions fire away!

  7. I am slightly closed. For whatever reason it's how I set up and feel most comfortable. This is true for nearly all my irons and woods. I feel as though I'm lined up square but I'm really a bit closed. I've tried to open up a bit, but it feels really wrong and my shots go all over so until I get a new lesson I'll stay with what I have.

    On pitch shots I swing much better in a open stance and find it much more consistent.

  8. One of the benefits I've found this year playing the same course a lot is trying to tactics and seeing what has played best. That and it adds to the variety of playing the same course. Also the weather here has changed dramatically so my 150 club is now 2 clubs fewer then it was in the beginning of May.

    Certain holes I've continually struggled on I've taken several approaches and am finally figuring out how best to attack the hole.

    Example being #14 which is a long 90 degree left turn with a up hill tee shot. Total yardage is 392, but after a solid tee shot we are normally 180-230 out depending on where you are in your landing spot after the tee shot. That's a long second into a green that plays up at the front and falls away nearing the back. Anyways fun and very challenging hole where most here consider it a or 5. Yes it's very hard to cut the corner!

  9. We had a really wet May here and I found I was doing the same. For me I just put the ball back a bit in my stance and really made sure to get good ball contact and take any early ground contact out of play. I know you're suppose to hit ball then turf but being a 13 handicap misshits happen.

    All that being said it did also help me learn to shallow out my swing!

    Now that it's dried up here my games really improved!

  10. This was one of the reasons I joined the course I did this year. Many courses in the area it's driver off the tee on all par 4/5s and whatever iron for the par 3s. Where as at my new home course I take a little bit of everything...Driver on maybe 5-6 holes, 3 wood on another 3-4 holes and then a few 4/5 irons depending on wind for the rest of the par 4s. Wind does play a huge part as it can really make life difficult on some holes. I'm sure I could get greedy and take driver on more and go for broke, but I've found leaving myself a solid 110 yards out is my comfort spot so I pick a iron off the tee to get myself to that spot.

  11. Definitely bring on the tough course. I know with my skill level I wouldn't shoot great, but having the experience of playing a really difficult course would be great. That and the next time around the course it would be great to see where I could pick up some shots by just having played the course before.

    I've said this before, but I enjoy golfing way too much to get frustrated even when having a bad day or round so bring it on!
