8/10/11 Saturday, with a few days rest this week and maintaining the injury rehab with heat and cold with a bit of arm massage and wearing a brace seems to have the healing on track. Went out for 9 holes Friday and this morning and the results show the improvement. Friday was a struggle no short game to rely upon and very poor putting. The tee shots and second off the fairways though were travelling well and it was frustrating to be so inhibited when it came to getting on the green and putting.
Then with another nights rest and having a better feel for the injury healing progress, out I went for 9 holes returning 6 pars, 2 bogies and a double bogie. Very happy with the result, hitting 4 greens in regulation and putting on cored surfaces was a good effort. The Driver was particularly good using the 420cc regular flex for the second day and benefiting from distance and accurate strokes. The shots for the GIR (5 out of 9 holes) were a revelation deliberate choice of 1-2 clubs more than usual in deference to the injury paid off. Short game returned as well, still a struggle yet the PW for chipping helped. Putting not easy on the cored and sanded green but good enough result for me to be happy.
With an extra 2-3 days before playing the Semi Final now that the opponent is away Sunday is a bonus. Hopefully will get a good 18 holes under the belt tomorrow and then a couple of days tuning up the short game I will have a better opportunity in the match play.
Thankyou for your time and attention, Geoff
