I shot 89 yesterday . After the round I looked at the stats and was amazed that i didn't shoot better. I need some help trying to make some sense out of these, 1 birdie, 8 pars, 2 bogeys, 5 dbl, 2 triple. I had 35 putts and 3 saves.
For the past two weeks I've been working on putting and chipping. I had 42 putts in a round 2 weeks ago. Played twice last week shot 89 and 88 with 36 and 31 putts. Lets see what today brings.
I still make to many stupid mistakes. The back nine of the 88 started with double,double, double, triple. Finished with birdie par par par par. Still cannot figure out how you do that.
Nice job Missouri.
My round this week. I've really been working on moving through the ball on my full swings and finishing on my front foot. I had a really good day striking the ball. Average drive was in the 220's, average to average +. I hit 10 fairways. I hit 9 greens this week, an all time high for me. Now for the bad news. I couldn't put to save my soul, 42. Finished with a 92. Better than average for me but not what the round should have been with the way i was...
I'm working on hitting through the ball and not trying to steer it to a target. I've been ending up on my back foot, ball going right and short. My round monday was 54/42. I figured out after 9 I was always on my back foot when I finished. My only swing thought the rest of the round was get on your front foot at impact and stay there. Started to hit quality shots and score. The back side could have been better, two 3 putts and 2 double chips.
I think there is a few things wrong with my bag. Driver is the right fit, no change. Shafts are to stiff for me, the irons launch to high, and there is to big of a gap in my wedges. I'm thinking about these changes. My irons launch to high because I hit up slightly on them. I'm working with a coach and trying to correct it. driver Titleist d2 @11.25 no change3w change to about 16hy @ 19HY @23-245I-pww 50w 54w 58-60 Marty

The only club that has been fitted is my driver, titleist 913 d2 with an bassara a shaft. All the other clubs are Taylor Made super fast and super launch regular shaft. Any changes you would make to this bag?
