It is fall, the rain and wind are back so it is time to go play some golf. I really like fall and winter golf and I am fortunate to live in the kind of climate where you can get out and play year round. The fall is a good time to put away the score card, hit some lightly played courses and work on making some shots. Some of my favorite rounds have been then ones where the wind is blowing hard and you have to learn to control the shot and be creative. There is nothing like hitting a driver 15o yards one time and 300 the next, don’t get me started on a left to right wind on a day when you might be missing it right. Needless to say you quickly find some tips online on how to hit a draw and you learn that shot.
I tried to kick off the practice season the day before Thanksgiving, but it was national everyone go play golf day or something. Not detoured, I hit the driving range, ending up at McHenry Golf Center in Modesto, CA. That was the best thing I could have done because I spend a couple of hours hitting mostly irons on the range and working on things I needed to work on. By the end I felt very good about where my distance control can be and I had a couple of great swing thoughts to work on too.
Upcoming, I will discuss Christmas buying and the new Cleveland Wedge that Santa is bringing. Happy Holidays!
