July Motivation: Hip to be Square
New month, new thread... as always, I try to keep a positive mental attitude and hope to have a thread where people can post goals, accomplishments and other thoughts... just a place to encourage and be encouraged. Feel free to jump in and introduce yourself!
Went to the DR today and didn't get a cortisone shot... apparently I pulled an oblique muscle or something... Good times! Got some steroids to help with it... probably went to heavy to soon on my lifting for golf stuff... going to slow that down, get in more stretching and make sure my form is good... Who knew working on speed at 38 might have negative consequences!
Goal for this month is a couple rounds in the 70s and to really focus on not COMPOUNDING mistakes... take my medicine, take the bogey and move on to the next hole. This is not something I do well... I love trying to "save" a hole. It rarely works. Also want to focus on staying focused on the course.
On the practice front, still working on path drills, but a hurt front hip doesn't help me turn... I'm toying with left hand low on putting, as my putting can't get much worse (I've averaged 36 putts a round thus far this season)... I need to start dropping putts to drop my score. I'd like to move the average down to 33-34, as that increases the chances of a 30 putt round.
