I had alot of fun, recently, on a trip to Texas. I started out losing a stroke per hole on the beginning 4-5 holes of an 18 hole golf game that a friend and I decided to play. Both of us are HOPELESS!
Neverthelss, we are evenly matched in our, "in the rough, in the bush, in the canal, in the pond, topped it, hooked it, sliced it, got under it hopelessness. Sometimes we do alright and imagine ourselves on the PGA tours, but for the most part, if we score one or two pars per game we are HOT.
Anyway, I was losing a stroke per hole on those first few holes, slicing way off to the left and losing balls wondering, "What am I doing wrong? I thought I had corrected all that in previous years." Jack Niclolas had shown me, via his videos, how important it was to keep my head perfectly still, how to line up at the tee, etc, and I was doing those things, but it was at the 5th hole where I remembered something Tiger Woods had taught in one of his pubs. "DON'T SLIDE YOUR HIPS TO THE LEFT OR THE RIGHT WHEN GETTING READY TO CLOBBER THE BALL. ROTATE THEM!"
I corrected the slide and, yes, that correcterd the slice. I started driving the ball 260 - 290 yards down the fairway consistantly after that and ended up winning the game by 10 strokes while my bud, who is unteachable when it comes to his slice (lucky for me) just absolutely fell apart - har har har.
He called me back out for a grudge match and I beat him by 5 strokes. That didn't sit well with him, so the day before I returned back to the ice and snow up here, he challenged me yet again. I don't know, I must have eaten a can of botulism that day cause, "I fell apart!" He beat me by 3.
