    Playing on friday. 5.30 was the only time available for the whole weekend.
    Not looking forward to it tbh, nobody has swung a club in 10 weeks, roughs knee height, 7 min tee off intervals, it's going to be hell, would rather have waited a week and got idiots that a rushing out get bored with it, b ut my brother is champing at the bit.
    Club asked those furloughed and not working and can play during the week to be considerate so us who are still working and can't play during the week get a game, see that worked.

    Must have been tricky hitting with the ground shifted 90 degrees.

    Glorious weather last night for my first 18 holes of the year.
    Golf was patchy, as to be expected, 7 pars and a birdie, but we will gloss over the three lost balls and a few triples.
    Rough was brutal, bunkers like concrete and greens very slow, but we're back.

    It's always a lot more enjoyable when you play well even more so when it's sunny.

    Hit little white ball with long metal stick and then go look for the little white ball in the trees.

    You are welcome, that will be £50 thank you

    Really getting on well with my golf currently

    I've had 3 lessons in the past 2 weeks and my fundamentals are sound again
    A slight grip change was needed on this as my right hand was far too weak

    I've been playing every Wednesday and try to hit balls at least 3 times a week, lockdown has helped massively with this

    My local club has really good practise facilities with a newly matted range and a nice grass outdoor area to hit from too

    It's £8 for 80 balls or you can do what I've done and become a Range Member which is £25 a month for unlimited balls

    I've applied for the ballot at the old course next week.
    All the foreigners usually cluttering up the place have cancelled, desperate to play it, but bricking it as well!

    Got to be happy with that , In your post above about lessons , always beneficial to get swing looked at every now and then as bad habits creep in.

    Yep 400%
    I also now know when I hit my bad shots why
    I've either had too much weight on my toes instead of heels or I've swayed on the back swing

    I found that to , more lessons you have more you practice and improve the more you understand your bad shots. Everyone hits good and bad shoots but it’s the knowing exactly why you’ve done it.

    Yeh it's good now as I know why certain shots are happening
    My short game has always been really good and my long game not so but I need to make sure I keep practising my short game too as I don't want that going off as I'm hitting so many balls on the range

    I always try hit some chips and pitches at range. Even if it’s just 10 -15. You’re right need to keep it up. Sadly my driver creates all my drama .
