Alex Saary is travelling to Northern Ireland next weekend to spend a bit of time with me. We are being joined for a hit by Mark who is also an ABS student so its kind of a get together. It’d be great if we could do it on a regular basis, next time Arnie we’ll try to give you more notice and you can join us!
Anyway, I’ll post a full report after the event and I’m pretty sure Alex is brining his Casio so there should be a ton of kewl photos and clips to look at too!
It was great to meet and play with Alex and Styles, both very accomplished players and all round great guys. Alex is probably Lag’s hardest working student and his ballstriking was outstanding, in the first round, he missed one fairway by a couple of yards and a couple of greens by the same margin. He could have conceivably had a crack at the course record if the greens were in better condition.
Alex credited the hard work he has done on Lag’s modules for the transformation in his game since joining the class in March. I joined at the same time and it was very encouraging and inspiring to see the quality of his game.
Styles is a swinger with a great short game and putting stroke, I am sure he will reach his target of scratch or better, just needs to cut out the one or two damaging holes per round.
It was good to meet up, play and discuss Lag’s methodology and I think it would be a great idea to organise an official meeting for as many of us that can get there. Maybe Lag will put in a guest appearance!
I’ve found the easiest way to get video up is to upload to a youtube account and then embed the url of the vid into your post by bracketing it with [youtube] [/youtube].
I believe the types of files you can upload in the public section of the board are limited (although Lag may wish to change that). I think the student section would permit it though, so you might try there if you don’t want to go the youtube route.
Teddy is of course right and to redress the balance I have attached a picture of the persimmons I am currently using (this week lol!) - my Wilson HB’s. Hope I get chance to show you in person next year…
hehe Arnie, no worries, you can play with whatever you like mate, just make sure you turn up!
Aguille had the flat blades on Friday, I’ll let him tell you himself what he was packing on Monday morning lol!
Anyway, we will be doing it again so make sure you’re available.
To whet your appetite about it, I think next time we should do either a west coast links tour of Carne, Rosses Point and Enniscrone or a North coast links tour and take in Murvagh, Ballyliffen, Castlerock and Portstewart (not to mention Royal Portrush!).
Hell, maybe we’ll get everyone over for a week and do 'em all!
