I had a lesson today with my coach, Paul Mitchell from Bristol & Clifton GC and we were doing some short game work. Now my technique is pretty good but I was not getting the ball really close, you know tap-in distance or obvious single putt range.
So, Mitch decided that I was just not concentrating properly, so he made me play for money. Two lots of ten balls each with a £1 per shot difference on the gross score. The scoring was as follows :-
- Inside a ball tube length = birdie
- Inside 2 x ball tubes = par
- Outside 2 x tubers = bogey
Mitch gave me no shots……says I do not need them then promptly went and took a fiver off me!
So I PAID HIM for the lesson and then GAVE him more money…..how does that work then!
