My Golf Rehab – Round 5

Well,  time has gone by since my last Golf Rehab post!

To cut a long story short, at this moment, I was supposed to be on holiday in the Caribbean, however, thanks to the wonderful Icelandic volcano all that went by the board and we're now holiday in Devon, a place I have never been to before, it is BEAUTIFUL and the weather is on our side. We have 10 days here and will probably play golf at least 7 times, something I would not have wanted to do last year but since my golf mental outlook has completely changed, I'm looking forward to each round.

So, since my last post:

I'm back having regilar lessons with my favourite golf pro, I REALLY like him, I've been with him for over 2 years, not on a regular basis I might add, I'm just a club golfer, not about to turn pro or anything but every time I have a lesson with him, I come out feeling encouraged and positive. We've changed a few minor things with my swing and at the moment, I'm hitting the ball MUCH better tha I have for a long time. So, the physical side, I can work on and improve on in time.

However, how is my mental side of golf going?

Actually, I can report that it is going REALLY well.  Thanks to the golf mind training course I'm taking, my attitude to golf has changed dramatically ! I can deal with frustarrtion a lot better and look on each potentail 'disaster' now as a challenge as to how I can deal with that one particular shot.

Yesterday we played a course next to our hotel called Saunton Sands, we started playing at 3pm after a 4 hour drive from London to Devon and although it was quite warm when we started, by the time we finished at 7pm, we were FREEZING.

I had a good front 9, but after 12 holes, I was so cold and tired that I stopped enjoying playing. My stableford score was miserable, 10 points on the front and 9 on the back although I was hitting the ball really well but it’s a links course and the greens were Really fast.

We're playing it again today and after a good nigts sleep, my hopes are high that I will score more points today.

I'll write later with news!

I bought a set of haunted golf clubs on eBay last year. How can I get rid of them?

My boss was going to take them, but he found out they were haunted and changed his mind (He has small children at home).

I feel bad about leaving them on the side of the road and I find that none of my frinds thinks it would be cool to own these clubs. They do nothing for your game, by the way. It's not like they are haunted by Ben Hogan or something.
