I was swinging in the mirror the other night, and I had a little thought. It was late, so I couldn't go to the range to work on it, but I thought about it all night. I went to the range, and it was like a switch flipped. I didn't even have to think about it.
I haven't gotten my ball-striking all the way back to where I want it, but it's a marked improvement. I played a very efficient round of golf today. I was never in any real trouble, I drove it pretty flawlessly, and I was hitting a lot of iron shots close to the hole. My long irons were a bit weak, but passable. I hit some really good putts, too, but didn't get a whole lot of them to go in. They will. I got back to ripping up the par 5's, too. Made 4 on all of them, just missing a couple of eagles.
So I ended up with a nice little 68 that should leave me somewhere around the leaders at the end of the day. 66 is low so far.
