Monday 6th. Back home and warming up after the Eudunda Ambrose trip. Was fun to play a fun round of golf in fact. Probably exactly what my game brain needed. The shortened Driver experiment is over for the minute. As I took the shaft out and put in the Stiff Flex shaft that arrived on last Thursday. It was an interesting trial and I am looking forward to hitting the same club head with a 5 cm longer shaft. With the 9* short reg flex shaft there was not much distance loss compared to the longer shafted 10.5* regular flex club head. That distance loss at full power was noticed yet the accuracy was so easy to achieve and the distance off the tee felt to be longer than usual combined with the accurate drives. I am not going to pass this experience over in a hurry. I can still shorten the shaft in the 10.5* driver at a later date in desired. Most likely I will just replace it with the very short one pulled yesterday and experiment with that first.
This pic of me was taken while hitting a cracker of a drive an easy 240m, down hill without much run so very satisfied with that hit. The Fluoro Polo Shirt and cap or Beanie were included with the entry fee so the course looked like a council worker convention. Putting on scrapes was a battle to be honest that delicate 'feel' of the run of the grass greens is not any use. The mental block to whack the ball into the hole was so hard to circumvent. Still we dropped some great puts on the day and that added to the fun.
This weekend is the Naracoorte Open Weekend 9th-11th of August and the plan is to play both Saturday and Sunday. Depending on work of course which may save me the pain which seems to come from playing this course. Have to be getting close to knocking out a good round at Naracoorte though and as usual full of optimism and looking forward to the trip. "hit the ball, find the ball, hit the ball." Thankyou for your time and attention, Geoff
