With a 3 day tournament coming up in a few weeks, figured it was time to get my golf game in order. Went over to see Ben at Porter Valley (no link for Ben, because he doesn’t have a website – yet) to see what he thought.
After a bunch of irons on the range, some chipping and putting, he said “Why aren’t you a 3 handicap?” I told him I didn’t know – could he please tell me? His point was that I hit the ball solidly enough to BE a 3 handicap, but that I just apparently didn’t take it to the course. Oddly enough this filled me with confidence.
So I went out today with my buddy Jack (which was just more fun than I can even explain), and shot a 78 – the first time I broke 80 on my home course. 8 pars and one double on the back nine, which has always been my problem nine.
The power of positive thinking. I’ll be sure and pass this along to Sydney.
