Last Sat: 76 on my home course. Last Sunday: Went and played Royal Pines where they play the Australian PGA Championship the last few years. It was raining and I started bad with a 42 on the front, then I caught on fire. Like real heat. Had 2 under 34 on the back nine (bogeyed the last!) to shoot 42-34/76. Pretty happy with that round considering the course! Then played a 4-ball Ambrose and led the team to an 11 under 61 score to win the day with huge prizes. Saturday i...
I can remember most of my golf milestones.. Breaking 100 after 7 rounds. 90 after 50 rounds and breaking 80 at age 16 after around 100 rounds ~2 years from first picking up a club. Got into single figures after 3 years. At the start of this year I was breaking 80 one in every 3-4 rounds, so I ramped up my practicing, concentrated on my weak points, upgraded my equipment to suit my game. I have shot under 80 11/15 rounds including my last 6! Broke par for the first...
Had rounds of 72 & 78 on the weekend. 72 on my home course with freshly aerated greens. 78 on a difficult resort course on the Gold Coast off the back tees. Had 40 on the front and wasn't playing all that well then came out firing on the back 9. Was -1 for the nine after 5 holes then threw in a double on a Par 5 for a 38...  ugh!!
Playing a 600 yard par 5. Tee shot down the middle and had 290 left to the green. I couldnt make it with a 3 wood so pulled the driver as I had a really good lie. Driver off the deck, smashed it 295 into the back bunker. Up and down for birdie. 2 huge shots!
Shot 36-36/72 yesterday. Included 5 lipped out birdie putts and a double bogey on the 2nd hole! Ahh what could have been. One particular shot I had though: Par 5 2nd shot and still had 290 yards to the green. Had a really good lie so took out driver as there wasnt that much danger. Crunched it into the back bunker! Made up and down for a good birdie on a long hole!
Played Brookwater today. Australia's 2nd hardest golf course, Slope 146. Off the back tees. Wind was strong. 110 degrees fahrenheit. I was hungover due to my high school 10 year reunion. I shot 48-52 / 100. My handicap is 4! First time I've shot over 100 in over 13 years!! I was eaten alive. Main thing though is that I had fun.
I live in Brisbane, Australia. We can play year round with our winter averages being around 70F! Coldest ive played in would be about 60.. Otherwise its the heat that is troubling. Regularly play in temps over 100f. Earlier this year did a round in 113F!!!!
I only have free weights as well with a bench (with leg extension). Warm up with 3 x 5rep 75% deadlifts. 5 x 1 Maximum deadlift - Adding in 10 calf raises on each one. 5 x 10 50% squats (purely because i dont have a squat rack) Then maximum weight leg extensions until my legs fall off.   I can't do lunges due to chronic patella tendonitis.. the knee doctor prescribed me this workout 6 months ago and its been getting stronger in leaps and bounds. My leg muscles were...
Oh man, one of you people.I've had pro's tell me on multiple occasions that I am by far the longest driver pound for pound they have ever seen. As for my irons.. well they are below average length.But why make this about length, i only care about draining my putts.FYI: This is in Australia. We are in a drought, the fairways are dry. They probably run 10-15 yards further. Now lets get our knickers out of a twist. 
Im one of those people who everyone hates. My metabolism is through the roof and I can eat everything in sight and still not gain weight. I play multiple sports as well as strength training so I always struggle with going close to falling into the underweight category. Needless to say, outside my sports I do no aerobic training at all.   Prime example: Last month I completed the Everest Base camp trek. 12 days straight of walking at high altitude. I kept my...
