Thank you everybody. I ended up playing 9 Friday afternoon. Shot a 41 (+5) and I think a lot of the thoughts I took from this thread helped. Only had to take 1 penalty stroke for a nasty hook with the driver. I need to be more conservative off the tee as many of you suggest but I struggle with that. I can crush the ball and I guess I like to show off but 50 yards into the woods is not very impressive. I hit a couple good drives but after the duck hook I hit 3 iron off the tee.
Redhook, thanks for the tip. I'll work on that this week. I think it's lack of confidence that causes me to open up without realizing it. Usually if I miss off the tee I slice, so i guess my default is to aim left if I'm not thinking confident thoughts.
