Good form needs the correct equipment..
Wednesday and finally a bit of time to recount the past weeks golfing. Got back to a flatter swing which has delivered immediate results and back in the minor placing's in club competitions again. On a trip to Adelaide last week called in to Drummond Golf and spent 40 minutes in their nets getting my swing checked out and calibrated on the computer. My swing speed is still around the same pace. The vastly improved technique and timing from using the Dream Swing has been the factor which has taken me back to stiff flex iron shafts. This was a very beneficial analysis session, as well as experimenting with the new X10 driver. Interesting to put my Cleveland SL 290 with the shorter shaft alongside new drivers and hold its own. That said the importance of having the correct shafts has now become vital in my golfing progress. Having a social nine holes this afternoon and will be using a Cobra S3 Driver. Look until last week absolutely no intention of getting another driver was the answer. In fact the question was not even in my mind, nor was getting stiff flex shafts and new iron either a month ago. It is a very hard decision to make, getting my game to settle into effective play with the improvements. Then have to consider that the equipment has to change as well. The new irons are a must an driver change not at all and it is firtunate the guy who I am getting the irons from has just changed driver as well. Playing nine holes with the S3 Driver and a few practise sessions will feed my interest enough. Now to the weekend results, finally. Only one round played after a 3 hour drive from Adelaide to make it to Kingston Saturday morning out the car and scored 32 points. With 4 x three putts the only real problem and that I put down to the travelling. Finished in 10th place out of 32 golfers, did not play Sunday it was another very windy day and I had work as well to tidy up so a rest was the choice. Pacing myself to tell the truth and taking some time to get settled into my new golfing capability. It is great to be champing at the bit to play again. Also only 6 weeks to go and 3 years on committee are finished and I will enjoy the freedom of that a lot. Thankyou for your time and attention hit the ball find the ball hit the ball Geoff
