I should have shelved my Hogan irons long ago. That and performed an exercism on my game. My MacGregors are working very well right now. The ball striking which has been missing all year and crushing my confidence, is back.
I’m finally feeling the ball compress when I hit iron shots. I’m finally seeing the ball launch nice and high, flying far. I’m finally hitting my shots the distances I’m accustomed to. I’m shaving the skins of golf balls with crisp strikes. It is no longer a mystery how far, usually short, my approach shots will go.
Finally, thank the golf gods, I’m seeing shots go AT the pin. For a while I was just hoping to hit a green.
It is too late for me to compete in much here except my league, which goes to the end of October. All the major local tournaments are over and the season will be winding down in a couple of months here, when the snow flies. So my A game missed out on the major tournaments here. But I finally feel like I can hit a golf shot. I can’t express what a relief that is. I’ve been close to hanging up the sticks until next year. Close.
Better late than never.
