Today I played my Tuesday league with my friend Bryant from the previous post. He and I both didn’t have much of our games today. My swing was MIA and every shot was causing me pain in my golfer’s elbow. The farther off center my shots are, the more they hurt. My shots were very off so I was in quite a bit of pain mentally and physically.
We both decided by the back nine that we’d forget about our scores and just have fun. So I started trying to drive all the par-4’s and doing other odd things. I was 40 yards short of the green on #11 and used my putter. I made par!
By the 17th hole something finally clicked. I found my swing, which was missing for 16 holes. I three putted for par on the 17th, and made par on the very tough 470 yard par-4 we finished on…
Moral to the story, don’t fight it too much. Let it go. It will come back eventually.
