Played a few rounds since the last post. Went out to Arcadia and played the public course, $15 for 18 holes, I guess public money must make up the difference. Fairways and tee boxes were ok, greens not so much.
I struck the ball very well. Worked hard on getting my full backswing, getting my chest parallel to my back foot, then rotating aggressively through to impact. Good straight long ball flight, but my short game let me down. 78 from the tips par 72.
In the skins/nasa games I am doing ok. Winning the match play but not making enough birdies or better for skins. Gave myself chances but didn't convert the putts. I think I need to make about 150 feet of putts in a round to score low. Last week the only holed out long putts were to save par.
I really stunk up the first two par three, doubling them both, so through 7 holes I had 5 pars and 2 doubles!
Physically doing mostly OK. The weight isn't falling off like I wish it would but the waist is getting smaller. Dr. Matt is doing wonders with the back and left side. I am suffering a re-occurrence of Plantar Faciatis, an inflamation in the bottom of the foot back by the heel. Feels like a very bruised heel. It is caused from a lack of stretching, so I am stretching it more. I read in a golf magazine that too high of acid content in the system can keep the inflamation from subsiding at night, so they suggest 1 teaspoon of baking soda for every 100 pounds of body weight, it does seem to help. Tastes awful.
Working this week \on completing the forward turn.
