Weekly Update – July 11th, 2017

Returning from vacation always sparks a little fire in motivation.

When I got back from visiting home over the 4th of July, I wanted to focus on getting my blog up and going.  Although that doesn’t necessarily mean golf has to stop, it did take the back seat for a week.

Without any practice going into Saturday, I put up an 86.  Considering it is a course we don’t often play and the round took nearly 5 hours due to backup on the tee boxes, I was actually pleased the number wasn’t higher.  Finished “strong” in the 95 degree heat and 90% humidity with my only birdie of the day.

I took those good vibes into Sunday, grooving on the quality ball-striking I had been exhibiting before vacation.  I ended the morning with my fourth 78 in the last five rounds, sending my projected handicap to a 6.3 (all time low).  That makes eight rounds in the 70s this year already, on pace to break my single year total (12 in ‘16) by a large margin.

Sub-80 has started to become my new baseline: where I don’t feel I’m playing my best but I’m still shooting consistently.  That is a HUGE motivator.  There is reason to practice to break this plateau because it is already lower than expected.

This week I’ll set up some practice time.  I am continuing to write my first article and am really excited to share my thoughts with you!

Have a great week!
