My oldest son started day 1 of a 5-day all day Nike Golf Camp today.  Needless to say, he's excited.  He's almost 8 but I am a little concerned all day (9-4) is going to be too much, but we've gotten a good weather week, and the kid eats sports up.  The camp instructors talked at length about in-camp competitions and prizes, and this kid is crazy competitive, so I'm pretty sure he'll be fine. 

My only faux paus was decking him out head to toe in Under Armour...the camp instructors couldn't wait to get that swoosh on his head!

Sounds like a cool experience!

Can’t take hitting near the heel anymore. Calling to make an appointment to get my swing worked on in the am.  I can’t wait to hear the guy tell Me I have to change everything.  Wish me luck.

When I started rotating properly as Monte told me, I significantly reduced heel hits.  Not a big change.

My swing coach Brian Jacobs (BrianJacobsGolf.com) got me to strengthen my grip by seeing 2 knuckles (right handed swing, 2 knuckles on gloved left hand nearest thumb) and feel the wrists rotate through as the swing meets clubface to ball.  When I get it right, the old slice is gone, it could be a slight fade, straight or draw depending on how strong I make the grip (how much the 2 knuckles are visible) and how the rotation at impact goes in that fraction of a second.  THAT is what contributed to that new low score I had last Wednesday... (see Broke 90 badge!) and it is so easy to practice without a ball or a golf range/course/place.

I have been swinging great all year, aside from a slight miscue early last month.  Pretty sure it is all in my head, but it’s worth trying a lesson… maybe.  Still hoping I can figure it our myself.  Been playing the best golf of my life… then I decided to practice.   Every time I practice I end up like this.  Over thinking things subconsciously.  Because I don’t think about anything in the swing.

 

Going to see if I can sneak out for 9 tomorrow.  If the crap doesn’t follow to the long game I’ll just hit some pitch and runs till I get comfortable again.  
 

This game is a weird one.

You’ll never guess what I just figured out today….

 

I have almost no external rotation of my right arm in my golf posture.  No wonder why I’m having issues.  Feels like a bunch of rubber bands ready to snap.

 

Time to add more stretches.

That is what was identified as causing my slice that was far better than what a Mandoline Slicer can do.

Yesterday was my third scramble in the past 10 days.

One thing I never realized before is how mentally taxing scrambles are! Yesterday's was the worst of the three - big fancy scramble put on by one of our vendors at a local private club. I played well, but I was very focused all round since I was playing with three vendors I had never met before. Between all of the festivities and a six hour round of golf, it ended up being quite the day, almost 10 hours total.

It all hit me this morning on the course when I just couldn't focus at all. First time all year I've walked off without finishing the round - I stopped on No. 16 after losing my fourth ball of the round. It just wasn't fun this morning.

My goal for my next round is to really work on the mental side of it. I can play some really good golf when I get myself committing to each and every shot. Days like today I was just going through the motions and my play showed it.

Sometimes you just need to vent. 
 

My wife is headed to the hospital this afternoon for a fairly routine but life-altering surgery. 
 

She’s been living with excruciating pain for approximately the last two years post-delivery of our daughter. 
 

We don’t have a crystal ball but it’s likely that any traditional means of having more kids is a door that will soon close. Not fun news to hear and not something your wife wants to realize. 
 

So for the next several hours it’ll be a cafeteria, waiting room and probably a deep dive into the depths of some TXG videos as a healthy distraction while she undergoes her procedure.
