After going back to basics and returning to a neutral grip, I started making good contact and hitting my aiming points consistently. I found some lost power too (probably also due to the poor grip). I was down to around 270 with my driver last year instead of my usual 290 with a slight power fade. I'm playing my first round tomorrow with my boss and some other co-workers.
Realistically, I'll be thrilled if I can break 90 at NCR.
NCR is awesome. It's so great and challenging at the same time. Easily one of the most difficult courses in Ohio. Good luck and have fun!
