Having golf lessons again

You would think I’m too old to learn!

I am 77 years old and I haven’t learnt the obvious lesson with golf.


Joining a golf club in Ballarat has motivated me to try to improve my swing, and in this video I show what a few lessons can do. I haven’t been able to go back for more lessons because I pulled up with a sore back and hips.

Everyone tells me that I’m using new muscles by which they mean muscles that have rarely been used in the old swing. Ten days later I feel that I’ll return to the driving range again. Aches and pains of old age! Don’t get me started.

What I am learning is the importance of having a single coach. The internet is a repository of contradictions. One guru says practice with positions and another says go with feelings and ignore positions. What I ended with up was a crap swing dominated by too many swing thoughts.

I have noticed improvements in my swing which you may be able to see at the end of the video.

Thanks Angie!
