KG’s Blog Post #106 – 5/26/11 10:11pm (Valhalla – got 6 Holes in)

Well, somehow we did play some golf today.  My 2:20 time was actually a 7 o’clock start. The storms just never stopped coming in for a nasty wet landing.

My teacher Peter Kostis was sent a video of my swing last night and he gave me 2 options. 1) close the stance up and square the shoulders up which will get me a little more draw and height on the ball which I was doing neither. It’s pretty scary to make a change only in your mind, but I had nothing to lose considering how bad I was hitting the ball.

I started out with a pure drive and a great hybrid to about 30 feet, 196 yard shot. Sadly, I panicked a little on my 3-footer that I left short and talked myself out of ‘cause I was just so nervous and the excitement to be playing in this premier event of senior golf. Just missed a birdie from 20 feet for par.  Then I hit a 5 wood right on this killer par3, but made of stupid good chip loft to 10-feet and made it. The next hole I hit a good drive (250 all in the carry, ouch so short) a perfect 9-iron to about 12 feet where I had no clue on the read and my caddy came closer than me, but it just missed. Old eyes don’t always work. The next hole I bombed a drive and hit a 5 wood into there about 20 feet, this was awesome. #6 is clearly the hardest hole, I pulled my drive onto a mogul and was left with hit it 20 yards and lay up short of the water or try and carry the water, 150. This was a gamble because the serious hill means anything can happen. I pulled off a hybrid which left me 79 yards. I hit a SW to 5 feet and made the putt. Round now over.

I must play 30 tomorrow and I simply don’t see me to be able to finish. I will fight till tears fall hard from me before I quit. These 6 holes have given me a boost as this is set up much harder than our normal events.  Sleep, sex, food, and munch tussle will finish my night and get me ready.

Be good my friends,

Ken
