Don't you just loathe the month of January? And doing Dry January makes it even worse! I realise that I haven't posted anything for a while, probably because there hasn't been too much going on. That's not to say I haven't been busy since Christmas as a deadline is fast approaching for the next issue of Women & Golf magazine, and then there's all the other daily work related matters to deal with.
But ... believe it or not, I have been to the golf range on a few occasions as I really need to get my act together this year, especially because the challenge between Team Naga Munchetty and Team Clive Woodward is on again, so I must try to get my handicap down - no pressure! Charley Hull gave me an incentive one Saturday after I closely followed the closing holes in Abu Dhabi on my i-pad. It was a great win for her and well-deserved as she's practised hard all winter, and it just shows how practice pays off.
As you can see from this picture, my top half looks like I'm dressed to go skiing rather than playing golf, although it is golf gear - a really nice jacket and matching bobble hat from Daily Sports. I could swing a club wearing it, so that was a big plus! I've mentioned Toptracer before so I was pleased to find this technology at the A1 driving range in Borehamwood. It really does make a visit to a golf range more pleasurable - I like watching the ball flight of my shots, carry, and distance, even if it's frustrating at times when you look at the results.
To confirm this focus on my game is no flash in the pan, I've also booked a lesson with Dan Grieve at Woburn, and this will give me even more to work on over the next month or so. I'll let you know how it goes. At least January is almost over and I'm going to celebrate with a large drink!
