Another Lesson and More to Think About

I wrote my last blog from Miami but that seems an awful long time ago now. Whilst there I had a lesson with renowned instructor Jim McLean as his school is based at The Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables. Funnily enough it was the day after Gary Woodland, once a pupil of Jim's, won the US Open. In the school office there are pics of some of the best professionals with thank you messages to Jim including Lexi Thompson, Cristie Kerr and Keegan Bradley.

Anyway, back to my lesson ... first of all, what a lovely guy, charming and easygoing so it was easy to relax. He changed my grip slightly. I have a tendency to grip the club too tightly, so my right hand has now moved over a little and I'm trying hard to not even notice my right thumb and index finger being on the club - at the moment it feels weird but I will persevere. He also gave me a series of drills that should help my weight transfer - as always, plenty to think about, but what a treat to have this lesson.

Back in the UK, I did check out Pachesham Golf Centre in Leatherhead, Surrey. I'd never heard of this place, but the facilities are fantastic. There's a 28-bay covered and floodlit driving range, and what I really liked was the short game area which has targets at various yardages. I had a go in the putting lab - really interesting looking at the different stats and confirmed that more often than not I miss putts to the left!

There's also a 6-hole golf course that's promoted as 6 holes in 60 minutes - I can vouch for that and this was just right on a Friday afternoon followed by a small glass of wine as I was driving. I mention driving as the downside was that it took me 4 hours to get home - a journey that should take less than half that time - M25, say no more!
