A great weekend of golfing...

With some equipment upgrades on the way. Re-gripping my irons is a must do,they are way too small and this is causing the pull to the left on too many approach shots. This is causes a lack of certainty in playing the shot for the green, compounding into more errors. As well as the continual scramble for up and downs to get par, putting too much pressure on my game ability. My golf is not rubbish, yet, it is all getting retarded by not working on the little things that only practice can improve. The recent experimenting with the Seve Ballesteros irons, and Ben Hogan 'Magnum" cavity back style irons has been a good experience. The main result has been that the equipment is not the key to improving my golfing as much as practice is the real need that has to be consolidated. On top of getting much more physically fit to make it possible to maintain a consistent level of golfing performance, this has already proven the value of good physical health. On Sunday after playing the day before competition round with the Hogan irons for a nett 77 result even though they were 2.5cm too short. The blow out holes of which there were three all were caused by poor drives of the tee and not being able to play recovery golf well enough. The next day I decided that the time of experimenting was over and put the Titleist AP2 iron's back in the bag. Again it was three holes with poor drives that did the damage this time a Nett 75 score was the result. With a new driver on the way to build on my technique improvement. The re-gripping of the irons as well is to remove a problem from my game play. The new driver will have a regular flex shaft that is better suited to my swing speed. The most important thing is to get the practice schedule established. The repetition has to be maintained for 18 holes not the 14-15 at the minute which has me playing catch up golf to get a score which is wanted. Thankyou for your time and attention.
