PostSubject: Progress of my Golf learning   Thu Oct 06, 2011 11:39 am

It been a while since i started picking up golf.

Golf is really a strange game which mental and physical and many practices is required..

I am to a stage where my 7 iron can finally average about 120
and learning my S and P. All is well as finally i can see straight distance balls with sometimes to the left.

To console myself at least i dun see any balls hitting to right Neutral

But yesterday lesson was a nightmare.
Starting practicing is still ok with sand. Then started to swtich to my 7iron.
Starting still ok but did not cross 100. As usual keep reminding myself that either i try to use
too much strength or turning of head or turning of body too fast.

But after sometimes, the group of maybe 2 to 3 persons were talking so loudly as if they owned
the place..Ignoring them, try to hit the balls but realised i can't and more balls were duffed or sliced and balls
were starting to go right.

At this point of time, one of them actually start smoking just beside the bay.
Even after some point, my coach also was shock that i could't hit the ball. Shocked
First time under the instruction of my coach and i still hit badly...

After yesterday hitting, i can feel my muscle aching on my right shoulder. And even now hurts a little, and i think
my swing is wrong again. Coach was saying my practice swing is ok but with ball is not... I attribute my worst hits yesterday are due to those buggers who talked loudly and smoke at the bay causing me to lose my cool.
What do you guys think.. Crying or Very sad

That's where your mental focus is being tested and trained.

Yup, thats life. Golf is game where your exposed to elements out of your control. You cant expect absolute silence/the perfect lie /good weather at your whim or fancy. Maybe you should try playing chess instead.

Learn to stay focus....if cannot hit 7i, go back to wedge. than go back to 7i again, this time just do 1/2 swing.

Even the best in the world have their off days. we mere mortals are no different....

Imagine when you go to the driving range and you have someone that looks like the 1st girl and she is in the bay infront of you. In hot pants and mini-tshirt....I have encountered it soo many times at the driving range in HCMC. I am not complaining but I am complaining about their "9 handicap" boyfriend trying to teach them how to play........
