One of the nice things about Wakonda shutting down the course is that the excellent practice facilities have remained open and will do so through the winter (in the golf hut as G calls it). It takes a lot of practice to groove a swing. Practice at its best is repetitive and contemplative. There is exertion but clear goals. Can I make the ball land on target the majority of the time? Can I hit a draw punch and scrape a nice clean toupe divot? Can I reliably land that fade at about 1:30-2 o’clock -is it reliable enough to make it my bailout swing? These conscious thoughts get lost in the repetition and become reflex.
