I was out on The Old Course last week with Sean from Iowa who is a pro at one of the biggest Municipal courses there. And what a player he turned out to be . He hit the ball like a rocket, and off back tees, navigated the five hundred and sixty eight yard par 5 fifth with a drive and a wedge and then promptly drove on to the four hundred and twelve yard par 4 sixth hole!
More than this he was the most humble and likeable guy. I thought I would ask him a bit about my swing problems and he was totally enlightening. Ok we only talked for about a minute but I assure you it was the most valuable and insightful golf lesson of my life. And I can tell you that I have been to many golf professionals for advice over the years on my suspect technique. In fact I have had more swing changes and swing thoughts than deleted Hillary Clinton emails.
Of course I can’t tell you here what the change has been. That is a deep secret between me and a lovely man from Iowa.
All I can say is that I am now hitting the 17th tee on The Old Course from driving range bay number 6.
Thank you Sean.
