I just…don’t…understand.

As mentioned in my last post, when I played on Friday I coudn’t hit ANY chip shots straight.

None.

Nada.

No exceptions.

Tonight, I went to Bromley Golf Course to practice my short game…and couldn’t hit ANY chip shots OFF line!

None.

Nada.

No exceptions.

Huh?

Then I got 50 balls for the range and, apart from the last five balls (which I used my 3 wood for – just for some fun), hit only with my 9 iron, my PW, SW and 60 degree…and hit them well. Maybe a tad TOO much loft, but still, generally some good clean hits.

I just…don’t…understand.

    Golf is a funny game. The key to hitting solid golf shots is fundamentals. The second element which is just as important is how the body is functioning on any particular day. Just think about it, a phase your player gas sound fundamentals but doesn’t shoot 64 everyday. Be patient, have a great pre shot routine, and as a beginner have a lot of patience with yourself. It takes time and practice to be a good golfer. Marc

      I know, you’re right, but still it’s a mystery!

      I think since then my chip shot fundamentals have been solidified. I was practicing them last night (which reminds me, I’m a post behind!) and they were quite good.

      BTW, “…a phase your player gas sound fundamentals…”???
