Practice Rounds @ The Plateau Club

Back home.  The Plateau Member/Guest tournament starts tomorrow and goes through Saturday so I wanted to practice some and get used to playing some non-resort golf again.  I played 18 holes yesterday and the front 9 twice today (once with Zach, and once with Paul and his dad).  

Here are my thoughts in preparation for this weekend:
  • Focus.  Pick my targets and focus on hitting the ball to that target
  • Relax and take the club back slowly.  For the last couple of days, I was rushing my swing and all sorts of bad things were happening.  I think the same thing happened at kuki'o.  When I get excited or nervous, I speed up and get out of sync. 
  • Have fun.  This game sucks when you are not enjoying it.  Enjoy the good shots, laugh at the bad ones.  I'll be playing with Kevin this weekend so that should make it more fun from the get go.

It is a best ball match play, one of my favorite formats since each hole is a new game and there are two of you to get the job done.

It should be fun!
