I’m heading to the Buick Open this upcoming weekend, but I won’t be seeing Tiger Woods. There will likely be some cardboard cutout and poster sitings, but none of the real deal. It’s disappointing to know he won’t be playing, but I can’t say I blame him for skipping out on a tournament a week and a half after the birth of his first child, a daughter, Sam Alexis Woods.
After having some problems off the tee recently, things have turned around in the last week or so. I didn’t realize what I had changed until one of my league partners told me I looked more fluid and controlled in my swing. It turns out I was swinging nice and easy instead of trying to crush the ball. Guess what…I am hitting it just as far as if I was swinging out of my shoes and I’m a lot more consistent.
Over the weekend I hit some great tee shots when I stayed in control. As soon as I sprayed one off to the left or right I could feel my swing get quicker and I was snapping the wrists over the top or leaving the club face wide open. If I take a nice and easy swing with the driver I can still bomb it out there 280-300 yards or more. In fact, I put the ball on the green on a 272 yard par 4…with my 3 wood!
If you’re having problems with your swing and can’t seem to figure out the problem. Slow down. You’ll be amazed at the results most of the time.
I’ve been watching quite a few of the Detroit Tigers games this year and they’re a fun team to watch. With Kenny Rogers coming off the disabled list and starting a game on Friday, he’s already giving the Tiger pitching a much needed boost. Detroit has taken over first place in the division and has been on a roll, winning their last 7 games. Nobody on the planet has a better offense, so once their pitching is back to last years dominance they’ll be a very hard team to beat. I really need to go down to a game or two.
Has anyone ever made a grilled cheese sandwich on an actual grill?
