Get Your Priorities Right!

Getting your priorities right is important to proper sequencing of your body during the down swing. HipsShouldersHandsClub Recently, I learned that my body reacts differently when I think about "hitting the ball" using my trailing (right) pocket versus when I think about "hitting the ball" using my leading (left) pocket.

Two Steps Forward...

Good news. I shot a 45 for nine holes on Monday. That's almost half-way to my goal. I say almost because my goal is to break 90. Sorry for the blurry picture.

Now, I know that I can't post this to my GHIN handicap, but it does give me encouragement that we're on the right track. It also made me wonder why we don't play more together...even indoors.
