Golfing is a wonderful sport. There always seems to be room for improvement. I just wish it would happen faster. However, like most average golfers, I do not have the discipline to get better. I do not take time to go to the driving range, or time for lessons. I do my practice on the course, which is a very bad idea if you want to improve.
However, I am open to suggestions from people that I shoot a round with. My latest suggestion came from Tony Mendiola, unfortunately it wasn’t until the 16th hole. I was not hitting my irons very well, so he took the opportunity to tell me that I was collapsing my elbows during the backswing. Now, as a golfer I know this swing characteristic is bad and wasn’t aware that I was doing it. As soon as I got to my next iron shot, I made it a priority to widen my swing, and hit he ball flush and long. What a great feeling it was.
Thank you Mr M.
