You see I'd already pumped into the spreadsheet that Gilly would hit 29 every shoot so it turned out to be pretty accurate and what I did do is this: Practice one day more, and when it was windy I'd nip down to the club for an hour on my own as I know that's where I need to get better and no-one can teach you that. I also copied Our Kes method on the plinking range, there's a reason he's so good and it's not luck.

Did it change my approach? YES, see above, and I had a personal goal at each shoot. It didn't always work out but it gave me something to head for and fired me up. I still need to improve in the wind and I also need to get my nerves in order as a couple of times I've not settled down until it's too late. I don't substitute my love of stats for practice, if anything it's the stats that drive me forward to actually practice more and identify my weak spots (there's a lot of them).
