It has been 20 years and 30kg lighter since I hit a golf ball, but I went down to a driving range today to see if
I still have it!
Guess what, no and a long way to go to get back to 3 handicap.
I hacked first 30 balls like I have a blunt axe, but then remembered to swivvle my hips a bit.
Then I went to transferring my weight on by back leg and moving my weight forward to my front leg
as I swang, that found me 20 - 30 metres straight away.
Then I was hooking the ball because swing in a round arm so straighted up my wing, more up and down and the ball
Out of 100, I had enough after 70 balls and gave the other 30 to this old dear practicing for tomorrow comp.
Back again next week, I won't ever get back to 3, but give me a couple of thousand balls on the driving range and may
be about 15-20 handicap.
My best hit went only 150 metres today, far cry from my best of 352 metres!!
It's a long way to go, but pulled up good.
Then I'll have a game, cheers Jim
