Some notable events:
After practicing in the rain for the last two weeks, it would be easy to say our team is a little rusty. I watched one of my players drive the ball over 300 yards to within 10 yards of the green. He chipped his ball from the wet, soggy mud right into the sand trap. Not having confidence in his explosion game, he tried to putt the ball out. After three attempts, he finally chipped it out and then proceeded to three putt for a smooth “balloon on a stick”, 9. I watched another player make a 9 on the first hole and then played the next 8 holes in 4 over par. I lost count on how many 4 putts I saw yesterday; I even saw one player 5 putt.
In conclusion, here are a few things we need to work on over the next few weeks.
Putting, how to lag putt and work on no more than two putts per hole.
Sand shots: when to putt it, when to chip it and when to explode it.
How to take full advantage of casual water and winter rules.
How to prepare yourself for the first shot of the day and how to play hole one.
