Some Lefty action in Sweden this weekend, the spring is starting to get serious around here with a lot of sun. Still a bit chilly but still good weather for golf!

Went and saw a swing coach yesterday for the first time. Never sought out any kind of advice or help in building the swing I have today. 25+ years of baseball translates fairly decent apparently. 

The CoachNow app has some cool features including one that mirrors a righty over to a lefty swing. Anyone else actually find it more beneficial to have a righty in front of you like a mirror? Rather than standing away watching another lefty teach and then trying to replicate..? I think I prefer watching a righty show and give feedback, but then prefer to see the video lefty-lefty for better visual reference.

I've only ever had lessons from right handed golfers so it's been easy to do the imitation/mirror trick. I've appreciated having the points of reference to look up and watch.

For video, I want to see a lefty swing. I had one lesson where the instructor flipped the video of Jordan Spieth and that was really helpful in understanding what he was trying to get me to accomplish.

Was out this weekend and played a quick 18 holes (3h 3min round walking!) in some tough conditions (or so I thought). Winds were around 20-30mph the hole round with some rain on and off. We did know it was going to be very windy but the rain was not in the forecasts and the first round came of course when we were 3 holes in. I do not own any rain gear and only have a wind jacket, so got kinda wet. We did play the full 18 after a quick discussion at hole 9. So still during this weather I got a -3 net round in! Best round of the year and probably last year as well. Did not grab any pics but it was a fun round and I am glad I got out there.

 

Also, I have signed up for 2 competitions during this season, both being the kind where you have 3-4 weeks to get your match/round in since one day competitions is on hold for the time being. The first competition is a 5 round stroke play at 4 different locations and the first round has a deadline on May 31. Today looking at the forecast it will be heavy winds and a lot of rain the coming 10 days.. was planing to get that round in next weekend but I guess we might have to hold of just a few days and hope for ok weather at least.

I really need to get back to taking on course pics to add to my updates.. Oh well, had my best round by far yesterday. Shoot an 85 which translates to a -9 round with my handicap and a big jump in handicap as well. From a 18.6 to a 16.2 so really happy that my game is going better and better. Been having a few good rounds but always a few big mistakes at the end to mess with the score but yesterday I managed to keep the ball in play without penalty a single time, and only 1 bunker and that was a fairway bunker on a par 5 so not too hard to recover.
