This is part one of a seven part series documenting my Winter lessons as a bogey golfer trying to improve. You can read the Intro here: Winter Lessons Series

So far, we’ve only worked on iron strikes but one thing I mentioned early to my coach was that I needed help on my short game. Today, we did a little diagnosis on my then terrible putting.
He had me set up and watched me hit some 10 foot putts (which I missed fairly consistently, I might add).
The diagnosis is not good!
We played 4 rounds this Victoria Day long weekend and Northern Bear was definitely the highlight. We got paired with a nice couple who are members and lived along the 9th fairway. Had a great time in general despite taking significant punishment from the greenside bunkers on this particular day. We played from the White Bear and the Red Bear but there were a set of “The Golden Bear” tees as well, just much much further back (almost 7000y!)
We are lucky enough to have a Jack Nicklaus designed golf course just 30 minutes outside of town.
