25/7/12 Wednesday. Unexpected trip up to Adelaide today and returning home tomorrow afternoon. Quickly threw in some travelling clubs with the overnight bag and dropped in to the West Beach Driving range late in the afternoon. Feeling a little stiff and out of sorts at the minute and getting a Bowen Therapy treatment on Friday morning to tuyne up the body again.
Enjoyed hitting 60 balls and not having to pick them up like I do at home. There are times when I could happily be a range rat, still the mixture of both practise avenues inluding the home course where it is a fairway with distance markers works well enough. Have put in some good quality putting time this week. Getting confidence and importantly the right attacking attitude of holing every putt possible still needs some more practise.
Checking the email inbox I saw the shipping notification for the new set of clubs from the US have been dispatched. Looking forward to the potential game improvement that could come from a complete hybrid set. After my coach suggested replacing the 3 and 4 irons with hybrids I was not totally convinced. I carry a #2 Hybrid and not a 3 wood in my bag and it is a very effective club.
Won the 185 metre Par 3, NTP at Lucindale with it last weekend. The 3 and 4 irons are clubs that I hit quite well. Considering how different the hybrid feels and the effectiveness with distance, ease of use and accuracy why not try a complete set of hybrids in the bag. There are better hybrid sets on the market but for the sake of the exercise initially the ones I have bought will do the job required well enough. It is always exciting experiencing the discovery of what technology can do to my golf game.
