    Can you feel it?

    Over the last month of comps I have done well and with a bit more care and maybe a small amount of luck I would now be at my seasons target of 5.4.

    Its coming and as title I can feel it.

    Can you feel your game is simmering on the surface and something major is coming?

    Re: Can you feel it?

    I feel the same after a year of frustration in 2016 when i played 10 comps and 5 supp cards and went from 16-17 Jan 2016-Dec 2016. Had nothing better than 32 points. Was getting very frustrated. Since Jan 1st i've gone from 17-12 and finally broken 80 with a 75. New equipment and 10 times more practice have led to great things. Even won a competition with just 5 clubs.

    Single figures is the next target. Perfectly timed for the good weather. Positive frame of mind is everything - its a mental game!

    I am certainly feeling a lot more confident about my game than I was at this time last year.

    Re: Can you feel it?

    Don't know, really. I'm not hitting it very well but I'm keeping a score going most times. Holing a few putts, short game shows signs of life.

    I guess if I can get back to hitting the ball well then the signs are promising, but it's hard to be too positive when my ball striking is so ropey.

    Also worth saying I've yet to play in an individual comp this year, so this could all go to hell when I get a card in my hand

    I hope so, down to 11 from 13 in 4 weeks and if it continues single figures might just happen this summer.

    Re: Can you feel it?

    Nope theres some seeds for optimism but quite a way from putting it all together.

    Have gained a lot of extra flexibility especially in my hip and back from pilates (as well as shedding some timber), now need the strength to benefit from it in the swing on a more consistent basis. Expect its a summer of mixed form and if i stay fit and healthy will be happy enough with that, ahead of whats likely to be a move at the end of the summer/autumn and hopefully some new challenges

    Re: Can you feel it?

    Absolutely, i've never hit the ball so good. 11/13 greens once my swing got going last time out round the par 3. Many tap in pars!

    Just need to actually play golf on a full golf course, curse of the nomad golfer.
