Heritage Golf

Think I´ve told you how much I have worked on my technique lately. It has made it hard for me just to swing the club and perform in tournaments. So the last few days I have done the opposite, practiced without any swing thoughts. First today It starts to feel good. For a long time I have taken the club a little bit low and inside to be able to hit a draw. Now though It changed quite hard but If I don’t time my down swing well I lose it right. However, I´m starting to get back to basic and it feels great!

Some pictures from the beautiful Heritage GC:

For being a resort course Heritage is more challenging then I expected. The beautiful sceneries does not come as a surprised but the tough green areas with huge slopes and undulations demands you to hit accurate iron shots to be able to have any chance of birdies.

Driver is usually one of the key clubs in the bag and so it is this week as well. I hope with less thoughts this club can perform better then it has lately.

2nd in to the par 5 18th.

 

It feels like I am on the right track. Will be fun to see if that´s the case this week :).

 

Tee off 12.20 tomorrow.

Take care

Swimming with dolphins.

Yesterday was one of those days I will never forget. Beautiful day out on the sea with friends and got to swim with wild dolphins, snorkelling in the corals and lunch served on a small island. I never believed when the crew said that we could swim with the dolphins… Ok, maybe jump in the water and swim in the sea where they just swimmed but actually get som close we could touch them I could never imagen. Wished a had on of those GoPro-cameras so I was able to show you. I hope that this pictures will get you an idea how unbelievable it was.

The honeymoon tourist

I can count on one hand how many times I actually gone on a vacation. This weeks counts like 100 procent tourist even if next week is a tournament :P.

 

As I just said I´m not the typical tourist guy but here in Mauritius it´s pretty cool with there authentic industries and nature.

Sickest Up and downs.

Someone posted a up and down of Corey pavin today and it trigged me to look at more unbelievable up and downs:

Bill Haas on his way to win 10 million dollar fedex cup.

Victor Duboisson at WGC Matchplay last year:

Corey pavin 2012 Allianz championship.

Some inspiration to work on weird lies on the shortgame area.

Commitment

Yeah folks it was an awful friday. Especially bad was my putting. 5x 3-putts in 18 holes. I think that is some kind a record since my junior times. Off course it was very tough conditions and tough pin placements but I should hold it up better then this. Both with my long game and short game.

I need to commit to my swing which I constantly working on to get my hands closer to my body at impact. On the range it´s working great, on the course it´s a little up and down. I always want to play without any swing thoughts, so before I just wacked the ball and it has gone pretty straight. Now though cause I´m almost swinging the way I want without thinking about my technique I get a bit, “Shall I think about the hands or not”. Freakin stupid I know so from now on I will make myself a promise before I go out and play.

 

Cool pictures from the Photoshoot I did with Black mountain a couple of months ago:

See you there!

Yoga morning, Nordea tour and Jakarta.

Just played my first round of the CIMB Indonesian Masters. Shot 72 after some pretty solid golf. While playing the round I felt like I didn´t play that well but after I checked my stats card there was 16 greens and 12 fairways. My game has not felt that good lately. My club get stuck behind me in my down swing and I lose it to the right. I worked on it quite hard the last few days and it starts to come together. Usually I hit a draw but to make the club come down better on plane I try to hit fades.

Here is some pictures from the last few days.

– Homemade yoghurt: raspberries, blueberries, buckwheat, avocado and a little bit of agave syrup. The toping is cornflakes without gluten and sugar.

Nice view from our guest room.

So I´m stickin to my plan and are on my way to Black mountain. At BM I will play a Pro-am tournament which is a part of the Swedish golf tour (Nordea). Sweet test for me to see where my game is at.

Disappointing weeks in South Africa.

Came down to South Africa with good thoughts and feelings  but could not put a score together. I could understand that it could happen after everything that has been going on. Thswane Open the second and last of the two It was not much to say about, I got ill again and just tried to take my ass around the track. Before I have performed pretty good during this circumstances but I´m starting to get so tired and frustrated which makes it tougher to get my ass around.

I´m gonna this week in Sweden with hopes that focus on good food and some kind of physical training could make my energy come back.

Here is some pictures from East London. Beautiful place that gets lost in all criminality that goes on in the area. Apparently a lot happen in 2008 when they closed a lot of industries and people lost there jobs. If you are a golf nut that loves South africa, Keep yourself in Capetown!

Tough day…

It was a tough day at work today. Missed fairways on the par-5´s so I couldn’´t get any easy birdies and  the rest was just ehhh…. some good ones but mostly bad shots and a lot of dropping. Free drops though but weird ones so I had to call over the referee several times. At one point the referee said that he almost should charge us as he only helped our group :).

 

Got out of it 1 -over par 73. Currently around 66th.

 

Someone who didn´t have a bad day on the Australian tour was Richard Green:

Sounds like it hits the rack for the bunker and bounces in.

 

Time to relax.

 

Take care
