**Update at Bottom
The journey continues, today I met Jerry’s students Krista and Andy, and the morning was spent watching the big guy work with them on their swings.
I had the opportunity seeing they are in the MCS school of swing under Jerry, to offer my thoughts on possible adjustments/changes, and to explain from my point view the importance of adhering to MCS principles.
I got video which I will of course share upon my return. It is nearly impossible to blog adequately from a laptop, as I’ve mentioned, and there is so much to do, people to meet, that I have to put it off for a few days more.

The venue for the Farmer’s Insurance Open qualifying has moved as well, from Del Mar CC in the San Diego area to Bear Creek GC, due to flooding from the deluge earlier in the week.
We’ll be having a practice round tomorrow with the Q on Monday, and unbelievably, my trip to So-Cal will have come to an end.
I’m seeing that young Jack Smyth and his dad have just arrived and are on the range with Jer. With that, I’ll sign off, and will be back when I can.
Young Jack was battling a bad head cold, but he sucked it up and made it out to at least play some holes today.
We were only going to play a few, but then Jack’s dad Brian made an ace on the 2nd hole, 196 yards!
It was a good ball all the way, and we didn’t see it go in because of a steep slope in the back of the green.
But the hole hadn’t been moved from yesterday, and I knew where it was, so when the ball landing and disappeared over the crest, I remarked, “That’s going to be close…”
Turns out, it was in!

Congrats to Brian on the ace, his first, and the first I’ve ever seen in person playing golf.
Jack will be playing a junior tourney in Las Vegas next weekend, so get better Jack, and Wax Golf will be rooting for Lil Rory!
