I am a member of Killarney Country Club, and presently hold a handicap of 22, and am 70 years old.
My lowest handicap was 11, about 35 years ago.
Craig persuaded me to have a short session with him, using the Samurai Swing teaching technique.
To say the least, I was skeptical.
After about 40 minutes of the 1st portion of the course, in which I learnt to allow my wrists to work, something I have never before been able to do, and to achieve a better rotation, we ran out of time, and went to the putting green, because I have a longstanding problem with 1-1.5m putts.
After about 15 minutes of work, not only was I holing far more putts of this length, but me long putts had improved in depth perception.
This lesson was held on a Tuesday, and I did not play or practice until the following Saturday Better Ball Stableford Comp.
My partner and I won the competition, and I scored 39 points individual.
We started at the 10th hole,( Stroke 1 ) where I would normally hit a good drive ( for me ), and a 3 or 4 iron to reach the front of the green.
That day I hit what felt like an easy drive, and when I reached the ball in mid fairway, was amazed to reach it about 35m beyond where I would normally find it, and hit 8 iron to the back of the green !
This pattern was maintained throughout the round, and my playing partners all commented on the prodigious distances I was hitting the ball, and, for the most part ( I am a 22 after all ) the quality of my ball striking.
I cannot wait to find the time start the course again, and work right through it, because I truly believe that it will make a significant improvement to my game in many different aspects.
