Swing Tweaks – Granny Edition Followup

Yesterday’s round at Hidden Valley with my dad was glorious.  8:15am, long shadows, cool air, beautiful course.  The greens were as smooth and fast as they’ve been all year.  In fact, the speed was so much faster than I’m used to I gagged away three shots in the first few holes while trying to adjust.  One was a 3-footer which I sent six feet by and two others were 3-putts for bogey when birdie was looking possible.

Once I adjusted to the speed I started making putts and on the 10th, saw a 20 foot birdie putt roll in with the purest and straightest roll I’ve ever seen come off my putter.  There is nothing better than putting on smooth and fast greens.

74

I shot +3 on the front.  I had it down to +1 after going -2 on the back for a while but gave up one coming home.  A fantastic and near impossible up-and-down on the 18th gave me a final score of 74.

The new swing didn’t work perfectly.  I had some timing issues and a few pulls and pushes.  But the shots were still controlled and not wild at all.  The worst scores I carded were a four bogeys.  The new swing took double out of the equation.
