The Sun Is Finally Out and My Golf Season Is Here!

I generally do not fuss about the spring weather because it changes at a moments notice. Recently, we have experienced a great deal of rain and cool weather for this time of year. I know that the warmer weather is coming and that my golf season will be in full swing (pardon the pun) very shortly. For this I am definitely grateful. With the mix of wet weather and life responsibilities, my 2022 golf season is starting out slower than I expected. It is all good, however, and my mood is growing in positivity with the appearance of the sun.

Best Start To My Golf Season Ever!

My golf season started on a high note yesterday. I have had many great starts, but this year was my best ever. There were two instances that set yesterday’s round above my previous first rounds.

Personally, my game suffered until I decided to focus on learning and refining it over may years of effort. Other than a great putting stroke, as a beginner I believe that all beginners should learn how to chip the ball from 25 yards or closer to the pin. This shot is a stroke saver and should be in everyone’s golf bag.

Switching Clubs From Different Lies When Chipping

If you have tried to research anything information on switching clubs when chipping, I am sure you have encountered a plethora of options, techniques, and possibilities. While warming up before yesterdays round, I went through my normal routine of placing my ball in different depths in order to practice using different clubs to the same distance. My technique is very simple. The deeper the rough around the ball, the higher loft club I use to ensure I make clean contact on the ball. It works very well and it something that I can control on a regular basis.
