I have played an entire 9 holes with a 7-iron. Tried to copy Tin Cup. Actually did better with just a 7-iron, then I did with my other clubs. Goes to show you, this game is about consistency, and shot placement, not necessarily distance.
I used to tee it up very high, and once I popped it up once, but it went to my right, not backwards. Put a nice dent on the top of my driver. (Luckily it was a cheap $10 one I got on clearance). Needless to say I don't tee it up high anymore.
Nope, missed the putt. Figures, right.    My game is starting to come together. Need to go get more lessons to get a little more consistency.
So Im in the 18th fairway, after a horrible tee shot out of bounds, a bad third shot, and a 4th shot that I hit fat, I finally find myself on the right side of the fairway about to hit my 5th shot on this long par 5.    Now playing this course before, and despite not even being able to see the green from where I was at due to trees lining the right side of the fairway, I know there is a huge bunker right in front of the green. Well, knowing that I am probably looking at...
I've improved quite a bit. I still struggle with consistency, but so far this year I've been able to manage a few birdies, and more pars. (Broke 100 for the first time this year, and now I hover in the low 100s most of the time). I've eliminated a lot of the big numbers. I was struggling a little with putting and my short game earlier in the year, but have improved to the point where I rarely have a 3-putt. Still struggle off the tee a bit with the driver, but have almost...
Hmmmm, maybe Dicks isn't doing well in the golf market because you can find the same equipment for about half the price on ebay or other golf outlets online.
Yeah, I think if I got a hole in one on my first swing I would have just quit and been like, "yeah, I conquered this game."   I personally think, that for me, its the failures that keep me coming back. I enjoy, and actually play better when I'm in trouble. Nothing makes me happier than pulling off a shot that I initially think is far-fetched.    Of course the successes also keep me coming back. Honestly think one of the top 5 moments of my life was getting my first...
  Yeah, I just find it funny that I can come through in tough situations like that but then blow up on easier holes. Its a mental thing really.
Just played again today, and after shooting a 98 last week, I am sad to announce that I have regressed a little this week by shooting a 111. My putting was just dreadful today and I was hooking everything badly (considering I normally have a slight fade to my swing). But not all was lost. Had 3 good shots from inside the bunkers. I also had this great opportunity. Par 4, this is where my tee shot ended up after just missing the fairway left by about 10 yards. Took my...
Just got back from playing today, and finally broke 100 and shot a 98, Putting was average, hit a few shots fat that cost me a couple strokes as well. Good news about today though...I ended up in deep bunkers twice, and both times hit it out easily, which has me giddy with excitement because I suck at bunker shots.    Basically, I need to work on my short game a bunch and get some more consistency with my woods and irons.
