An endangered species golf club ③ Debut report at the new golf course, also known as the agony club.

Everyone, please listen.

Fifteen years of fighting with my golf clubs, training from golf clubs?

(If you swing in the direction you want the club to go, you can achieve more than creative performance)

My golf is not competitive.

To enjoy golf, I don't have to put on a handicap and compete. So I'm a little unfamiliar with saying "as it is", putting remedies into the rules and competing for the resulting score no matter what.

Last time I picked up the agony club and told you about the break-in.

Now is the time to start practising. Fifteen years have passed since then.

On the way, I told the manager of HBS, "I want to return to the original club."

The store manager answered, "I can't return to the original!!"

It goes back to 2009.

ーーThe clubs you made in 2009 are much lighter and gentler than the clubs you were currently using in 2021.

October 17th and 18th, 2009 (Saturday and Sunday) Debut report at the new club golf course.

It's been a week since I received the club on the 11th.

I did a run-in that day, and the next night I felt great with the 8i.

I was like, "What is this?!" So I also made a reservation for the golf course on Tuesday.

I went to the practice field on Tuesday, but my greed lifted my head, and I often fell into a state of fainting because I couldn't hold back the extra strength, but I've restarted from brushing, and I'm in a state of being able to hit it somehow.

I haven't been able to reproduce the distance I experienced on Tuesday yet, so I don't think it's real.

I still can't handle slopes very well, but up to about 7i, I don't feel much mental pressure from the distance, so I have a fair amount of chances. (Although I often make mistakes.)

6i and 5i were mostly rough, but it's a pity that I put too much effort into it and made many mistakes.

The golf course (Taiheiyo Club Gotemba) is preparing for the tournament (Taiheiyo Club Masters), and the rough is getting tough.

In particular, this year's rough is in excellent condition because the leaves are cut from spring to summer, so it spreads sideways.

However, this club seems surprisingly easy to come out of the rough if you don't put any effort into it.

Also, I entered the bunker seven times in 2 days, and from the guard bunker (which is also a problem), I could escape 100% and had two par saves. It seems that the feeling of putting down something you lift without effort is your first success, and you don't have to worry about making a mistake.

I used a 7i and a 9i twice from the fairway bunker, but I could not catch the green on the first day.

Doo was able.

You stare at the ball and don't hit it, or you put too much force into it and don't put your weight on the left side.

I often feel like I'm going to lean backwards and get a ground slice, but I feel like I'll be able to manage it if I get used to it a little more.

If I can hit 5i and 6i firmly, I may not need wood type, but it seems it will take a little more time.

The attached photo is the 17th par 3 in Gotemba,

(In professional tournaments, the scenery is entirely different because it starts from the backmost tee.)

Since it was from regular, it was about 155y to the pin. So it was a little short, but while I was making a one-on shot and letting the following group hit, the snow piled up on Mt. Fuji from Saturday to Sunday was beautiful, so I took a picture with my cell phone.

After this, a 10-year birdie putt came in, and I went home in a good mood.

(I wanted to report this.)

I will ask the driver after seeing the situation a little more. I'm using it with sticky lead stuck on it, but I shouldn't be too enthusiastic about it.

That's all Yamayori
