T2C Update: Team Naga Has Work To Do!

It's July and so over halfway through the year, which also means halfway towards the end of the challenge between Team Naga Munchetty and Team Sir Clive Woodward. To recap for those of you just reading this blog for the first time, T2C is a golf learning platform that both teams are using under the direction of Daniel Grieve, Head Professional at Woburn Golf Club, and the challenge is to see which team (six members in each) has the best percentage overall handicap reduction by the end of the year.

The season started late, but there are no excuses now for us not working on our games and playing  competitive golf.

We began with the basics - pre-shot routine, grip, set-up, posture, shaft angle, and then progressed to short game. This includes chip and run, soft landing shot, and as I'm writing this, my bunker video and images are outstanding for Dan to offer feedback. We'll then progress to long game. Here are a couple of videos:

Dan's feedback was: Soft landing very good. Chip and run, just don’t let the clubhead pass your hands quite as much (shorter follow through).

As Naga has reported in Women & Golf magazine, we're all trying to encourage each other, we've got our own Whatsapp group, but at the moment we're lagging behind Clive's team. Some of their handicaps have come down slightly, whereas ours have gone up. For me, there are definite signs of improvement, particularly with my short game, but like every shot, it still needs a lot of practice and this was highlighted last weekend when I played in the club championship at Batchworth Park.

I wanted to give up golf as my scores in the morning and afternoon were horrendous. Was it because I hadn't played a competitive round for a long time, or was it the blistering heat? No, I don't think I can blame anyone or anything else, I just made too many silly mistakes and my scores kept going up and up! In fact I need to send my bunker video to Dan asap as I took five shots to get out of one bunker!

Naga and I tried to console each other with a glass of Prosecco afterwards, as her scores were not what she was hoping for either- but we'll keep persevering - with all these thoughts running round our heads, we might need to go backwards before we go forwards again - well I hope that's the case!
