The golf swing is a complex thing. Well let me clarify. My golf swing is a complex thing.
But now I may even clarify this. I think I can now put the latter statement into the past tense.
And this may be the most wonderful thing to have happened to me for a very long while indeed. Well apart maybe from Nirodhi coming in at 8 to 1 in the 4.55 at Haydock yesterday.
But I do think I’ve made a quantum leap with my golf. And it’s been a most protracted story to get to here may I say. Actually a 45 year journey. A painful one at that.
I can’t be certain about this for sure. And of course the acid test will be my forthcoming outings with a card in hand. But put it this way, I’d be putting me at odds-on favourite at having cracked it this time. We’ll see how the handicap fares? It’s eight now.
And of course you will want to know the changes I’ve made? And you shall. But you will have to wait. It’s too secret and valuable stuff that. Hard earned too I’d say.
I’ve been pretty entranced by the World Championship snooker to be honest. It’s a pretty fascinating game all told and has major parallels in golf. Technique, ball striking and of course mentality.
I’m wholly impressed with Kyren Wilson. For a man of 28 he’s sure got a composed head on his shoulders and is a brilliant player. Of course he’ll find it hard to break Ronnie O’Sullivan who looks nothing but a genius with a snooker cue in hand. But at 3 to 1 my money is on Kyren.
I’m back into my old club, Mortonhall, next year which is lovely, as it’s a super course and club, and is well tied up with memories and all that. I will be looking forward to a few Mortonhall Casual Barmy Army matches and gunning for a second champ win.
I wonder if they ever found their trophy?
It kind of went missing and occasioned many interesting and well tramelled conspiracy theories. My money is on the Earl of Wessex. Nice chap but mad as a hatter.
And I suppose you could say that’s quite ripe coming from moi?
