Attending a golf referee course from R&A in Bali for 3 days starting Sunday. I've been helping the local PGI with help for a few years now mainly in the scoring area. They want me to progress as a referee. Not sure, at my age, I'll handle all those rules. There is a test at the end of this course, so will see how I get on.

Put a 7 iron off the tee on the par 3 13th to about 2 foot and sunk the birdie putt, only highlight of the round. Still struggling off the tee with my driver.

At least it is a birdie! I usually class a par as a highlight!

If I may add something to his excellent advice -- from the video, it seems Swanny's left foot is turned almost inwards. I would suggest turning the foot outwards -- this will allow a proper weight shift and allow the club to attack the ball on a more inside path. A left foot pointing inwards constricts the weight shift causing Swanny to 'spin out' of the shot sending the club automatically on an outside path. IMO turning the foot outwards will really help Swanny when he is working on Rich's drill with the bottle. ( I've seen Vijay Singh using the same bottle drill -- only he used 2 bottles one on the inside path and one on the outside -- and they were glass bottles! )

One last point -- it may be a slight illusion but it appears to me that Swanny'
s right hand grip is a little weak which certainly won't help shut the face through impact. May I suggest turning the right hand a little more to the right when gripping the club.

Would be interested in Rich's views on these points -- hopefully Swanny will be on here next week complaining about his snap hook

I'd give anything to have a snap hook at the moment, at least I'll see a different part of the course rather than hugging the right side of the fairway or like today the left side of the 7th fairway trying to play across the 15th fairway to get back onto the 16th! Shocking and soul destroying.

My golf club offers some great discounts to members guests for a round of golf, I spoke to the bar lady last week and she reckoned that a guest of mine could get 18 holes in the afternoon during the summer for about 8! usually about 25. If any of you fancy coming up to sunny Tiptree in Essex for 18 holes then you're more than welcome.

Swanny quit moaning about paying 30 quid for a lesson when you are looking to spend a $170 on one of them. A hands on lesson will do infinitly more for you than one of those.

I played Sunningdale New on Tuesday, what a fantastic course. If you get the chance it is a must. Played the Old 2 years ago, that is great to, but I think the New just edges it.

Problem is Chester, I had about 6 or 7 lessons just before Christmas. The pro I used seems to have picked up on the same thing as Rich has however he wasn't able to explain how I fix it all that well. I'd get to the top of my back swing, he'd manoeuvre me into the correct position, but wouldn't really tell me how to go about getting to the position. No matter how much I tried I just couldn't get my body into the position he was twisting me into. I gave that guy a lot of money including a 9 hole tuition for course management, the only thing I would say that he made me better at is my chipping, the rest of my game is the same if not worse than it was before.

Maybe try one of the other pros at clubs near you. I think you said there were a few around. Sometimes some teachers just dont work for you. Try and clear your head as well i imagine you have a million different things going through your mind when you are over the ball. Just try and think of one thing to practice. GL

Im having a good chat with Rich about what I should be doing, funnily enough, he fills me with a lot more confidence than the pro I was using before Christmas. Ideally it would be good to hit some balls with Rich as he has a very good way of explaining things but with him being all the way over in Oxfordshire and me over in North Essex that's probably not going to be possible. Once the new pro starts up at my golf club in a few weeks time I think I'll book myself in for a lesson with him and see if he is able to help me out.

Played at The Addington this morning on IBM society day. We had 38 attending and no one shot under H/c. Every one said the same, all down to the greens. I expected a change after playing in the US so did 9 holes at Bletchingley last night and got six pars, thought I was adjusted back to the slower greens, but Uncle Ron has the old lady of Croydon playing tough ( and that doesn't include all the GUR bunkers). Tee to green I wasn't too bad but 43 puts - read it and weep - tells the story. No one could get them today,

I actually thought that for the price of a box of balls it would be nice to have a set of clubs with some kind of coherence whatever they were.

Any thoughts about these?

And while we're at it, I saw a complete set of Mizuno TP-19s in a charity shop in Thame yesterday. Old, but might be just right for someone.
Maybe beginners luck, but after a few dozen practice balls with the 7-iron and PW I went out and played four holes. About 230 yards from the pin for my second shot on the par-5 first I thought I may as well get used to these irons rather than hit it with my 3-wood. Now it was dry and down hill, but I hit my new 4-iron about 220 of those 230 yards and straight as a die. Birdie. Bogeyed the 3rd and parred the 4th.

4 shots with my PW on the 2nd saw to any impressive scratch record, but that's still 9 Stableford points off 4 holes for me. Can't wait to get out for a whole round.

My wife bought me some lessons from a Pro at Rancho Park in LA a few years ago... the guy was one of these older guys who could just hit the sweetest balls off the tea with no effort.. straight down the middle a country mile (he was a little guy too).

I really enjoyed the lessons, and he used to call me Nick Faldo because of my accent, and I actually do look a bit like him I guess.

Had me nailing the ball off the driving range mat, but when I went out on the course all my bad habits would come back.

I would have loved to have done a round with him, where he could teach me the whole deal, and not just driving off a mat.
