It was a good weekend. I shot an 83 at Pebble Beach and a 74 at La Quinta. That being said, I shot those scores playing from the whites, I never sank a putt and I didn’t have to leave Ajax. I headed over to Carruther’s Creek for a quick couple of rounds and to start working out the kinks in my swing.
If you have tried playing in a golf simulator you should give it a go. The yardage is pretty accurate as is the ball flight. Those factors aside, if nothing else, you can at least use the computer to see what your swing path looks like and what angle to have the club face at.
I played in Carruther Creek’s simulator league last winter and found that I had a much better swing going into the regular golf season. If these things are accurate my workout regiment might be helping. I’m hitting every club ten yards longer than this time last year though I’m pretty loosey goosey on the driver.
Fitness tip: if you play a round of golf on your own in the simulator you don’t get any breaks so you’ll work up a sweat. Nice!! I’d love to know how many calories I burned.
