Golf - stop slice and hook off the tee

Play Your Best Golf - Break 90 Vol 1
Had an easy 3/4 hr practise session Friday morning, working on the iron problem that has been irritating of late. Nothing major in the problem, for some reason my approach shots to the green from around the 100 metre out distance with the 8 and 9 irons have consistently been hit fat and falling short. Set myself up on the range and started hitting balls and that was most likely the problem, not enough practise with the short irons of late. Hit 30 + balls and they all made a good grouping at 90-105 metres for the two irons, Then had a tune up session with the 5 and 3 irons, these two have become popular selections around the course of late in my game. The re-shafted irons feel good and the accuracy with them is well worth the continuing practise. Then finished off with a short pitching and putting session following on from the practise put in this past week in these two parts of my game.

Played in the social 'Chicken Run' 9 hole stableford comp. Friday afternoon. the first three tee shots were a hook, slice, hook lost one ball and took the option of not playing a provisional ball each time. Previously I have taken the playing on with the penalty in this competition. Today I decided that this was not deserved and I would rather score a blank than fight for a 1 or 2 points that was not deserved. The next 6 holes I scored 15 points hit 3 greens in regulation and came home well. Pitched well enough around the greens even though the ball was not  as close as I would have liked to the pin. My putting was an interesting experience to say the least because of the distances. I still managed to go long, up to 2 metres past on one hole and dropped every return putt . No complaints at all with this and it was good to add results on the green to confidence.

Thank you for your time and attention, Geoff
