Got reunited with my old golf instructor today. The guy I was seeing the past 2 years retired. My old instructor was getting too expensive and his availability was almost nil.

After today's lesson, I have a lot of hope for REAL improvement this year. Finally going to rid my steep over the top move. Got back to basics with a much stronger grip which I completely ignored for years & having the grip more in my fingers than my palm. Shortened my backswing as well. Finally, worked on my transition (left knee starts the downswing).

Some good things hacker.  Pretty sure I'm headed down the right path with the modern swing.  Third 2nd place  finish in the men's game sing I started lessons5 weeks ago.  Though, cold but wet day.  Hit 14 of 14 fwys today.  Most were 250 yard baby draws or cuts...

Kinda makes the game a little easier even if the putter wasn't going good for me...

Fun day, won some $, jersey Dave went HIO so drank a pitcher of blue moon and a pint of makers mark for free...

Lmao.  I'm screwed already...just posted my 3rd sub 80 in the last 4 rounds...I'm sure I'll drop to an 8 at the next update...I really miss those extra strokes...there's a lot of good golfers out there...I've decided it's more fun to be king of shit golf that just another struggling mid single digest hacker...

Just spent 2 hours at the range. New grip, shorter backswing, new transition... the struggle is real. Took many videos on my iPad but deleted every one except one where I am even remotely close to what my instructor taught me the other day. I know Rome wasn’t built in one day but sheesh... Playing 2 rounds this week (if no rainout). May not keep score... just consider them practice rounds.

Keep doing it...my problem has been going back to my old swing for a Nassau or a tournament then revert g back to what I was working on.  I'm taking it slow, gonna banish the slide forever.  Leaving my left arm on my chest and Turing the left hip and right shoulder together is giving me a lot more room to attack the ball.  I still go back to my old slides over the top move sometimes but doing it less...I've noticed my short game getting sloppy and inconsistent due to lack of practice, too much focus on the full swing.  Will have to get that tightened up before the next event in February...

I haven’t hit a ball in like 6 weeks and our high was -3F (actual temp) today. It’s -14 with windchill of -27 right now. We have 9” of snow on the ground.

I need to relocate.

Luckily we are getting a heat wave in a couple days. 😳
