A Round On December 7 At Washtenaw Golf Club
With still air and temperatures in the mid-forties, I could not resist playing a few holes after work today.
I wasn’t the only one with the idea. As it turns out, Washtenaw Golf Club (course link) had quite a few players out enjoying the day. Most were on foot, staying warm by carrying clubs or pushing carts.
One was there on a powered golf tricycle. Very cool.
The BGT Shaft on an old driver head is performing well. It is a markedly different club with the Brava shaft as compared to the stock one. Although the Kam Kaddie has a remote, it is more of a powered-assist cart than a powered-remote. I really need to keep my hands on the handles to make minor adjustments in the trajectory. Finally, the Cleveland HB Soft Milled putter has a very nice feel, but I’m adjusting to it both in terms of distance control and direction. I tend to push it right for some reason. I’ve been experimenting with different stances. A slightly open stance seems to fix the push.
Overall, I thought I played fairly well considering the lack of reps. The golf swing does not come easily to me, and it slips away whenever I am forced by weather or other circumstances to take a hiatus. I struck the ball well, but the hook is back.
At this point in the season, however, playing well is not really the point. I just really enjoy getting outside for a walk on a beautiful course. I managed to get in fifteen holes before darkness ended the round.
