Daniel’s golf game is improving as he continues to learn how to get better at golf.
Daniel shot a 47 over nine holes in his team’s latest match last week. The team came in second among seven teams.
More importantly, they were only nine strokes behind the winning team. In a previous match, Daniel’s team was third and finished about 20 strokes behind the winning team.
In a practice round yesterday, Daniel shot a 44. He got up and down from around the green four times and needed only 15 putts for the nine holes.
He has figured out the importance of the short game. As we learned from the AT&T Pebble Beach installment of Lessons from the PGA Tour, you drive for show, but you putt for dough.
He finished eight over par, even though he had two triple bogeys. If he could have held those scores to bogeys, he would have shot a 40.
Overall, Daniel is progressing well in his golf game. He is continuing to improve.
He has another match tomorrow. We’ll let you know how it goes.
By the way, Daniel has asked me several times about the potential birthday present that I mention in the article about reasonably priced golf clubs, but I’m not letting him in on the secret yet.
