I learned finally to truly hit a beautiful draw after many years of trying. Next year I'm going to learn how to stop thinking this new draw is so beautiful and quit thinking I have to hit it all the time. :stop:

I learned how to hit a fade this year!  Golf is so much more fun when you don't fear the hooks.  Oh and new ballflight laws have been a revelation.  Also remembered how to use the bounce on my wedges for pitch shots.  It's been a very productive year.

I learned that my body knows how to hit it better than I do, and that it's best to stay mostly out of the way during the golf swing, lol

I learned that for me:

1. CP releases > CF releases
2. Shallow paths > steep paths

I learned that I suck.

1) Need to work on overactive legs on backswing. Stabilize left leg in particular.
2) If I get 1 above fixed that should help me fix my over-rotation tendency.
3) if I get both 1 and 2 down that should help my way across the line position at the top of the swing.
4) I'm still fat. Gotta work on that too.

1. I can't let a tournament on my summer schedule overtake the fact that it's still golf, and I need to treat it like any other round of golf. Easier said than done.

2. Putting will get me to scratch more than anything else in my game right now.

With all that said, I dropped about 2.5 strokes off my hdcp this season, (now 2.4.) so I'm glad of my progress.

I learned that the more I learn the less I know...if that makes any sense.

Hey...be nice.

#1: Mallet-head putters suit my stroke better than Anser-style putters.


#2: Standing on a tee box, there is comfort in knowing where the ball is NOT going to go.

#3: There's even more comfort, no let's call it pure-dee pleasure, in watching your collegiate nephew outdrive you by 40 yards per hole in a 9-hole match, but still beating him 34 - 42 on the scorecard.

#3.5: There is mass confusion in being invited to play the historic Secession Club here in South Carolina and shooting a fat 84 while your host, a 9 handicap, waxes you with a 76.

#4: There is great joy in walking a practice round at Augusta with your 79 year-old dad, regardless of the pace.

#5: Orange Gatorade and raw cashews are my new go-to snackages when carrying my bag.


#6: Van de Velde spelled backwards would not change the fact that he tripled the last at Carnoustie to lose the Open Championship.

JP needs to keep his weight left and not do a full weight shift anymore.
Lower back issue makes it too difficult to do the weight shift as he once did. Maybe that'll change. :(

On long putts, to control distance, peak a sneak at the hole. Keep head down and still on the shorter ones. And remember, get your dominant eye over the ball.

Wedge shots still need the legs working.

Forget the lower lofted hybrids, too closed and don't feel like changing JP's swing to accomodate them.

Stop trying to hit a 3 wood off the deck 240+ yards into par 5s. Where JP plays, it is folly.

Look to enjoy the round - not the score. Seek mental stillness, serenity now and effect a fine gait.

I am addicted to golf.  I can get better with practice and patience...  lots of practice and patience.

I play better when I walk rather than ride.  Having some snacks throughout the round really helps my ability to focus and to keep my head in it for the full 18.

And finally, through the wonder of video, I've learned that I have the ugliest, most awkward golf swing known to man.

I learned what a connected, pivot driven arm swing real feels like versus a stall and flip. Discovered it late this season; shot personal best twice.  Can't wait until next year.
