- I have yet to meet my mentor
- I will be doing that very shortly
Emails have been sent again and currently we are trying to find a date that works for us both. We will be meeting very soon however and I will be posting and updating the moment we are finished.
Now, just because I haven’t met with my mentor yet, doesn’t mean I’ve been simply waiting for a date to be set up. I haven’t been just sitting on the floor, counting my toes all day, wondering when to possibly start my project. I went out to the range and hit some balls. I went to my basement and pulled out my putter. I went to Google and learned a bit more on the history on golf and how it has become what it is in everyday and modern culture. Yes, I have been doing things.
I went to the driving range to go break in my clubs a bit. I haven’t really played golf in a number of months so I was not expecting much from myself. All I was asking was to at least hit the ball. So 60 balls later I felt I had regained some of my old golfing chops and was ready to begin improving my game.
Here are some videos (filmed courtesy of my dad who also found out his phone has a slo-mo function) showing my first real swings at the game again. In the descriptions of the videos, there is a short description of what was good and what was less-so.
I have improved greatly in the distance of my shot since the first time I went out this year (no video footage for that). My swing has all around improved and I’m always looking to improve further. With my dad’s help, I recalled some of my prior golf pointers and applied them to my shot. Currently I am experimenting a lot with my shots to see what works and what doesn’t. As well, I got some of my clubs re-gripped so hopefully that will help my shot too.
I’m looking forward to soon finally meting with my mentor, as well as going to the actual course to apply my shooting skills to the course.
