95 on Friday, 90 on Saturday and 92 today in a tournament. Same course same tees. Timberlin GC, Berlin CT. Each round is the same, lots of good holes with a bad hole or two or three each side. I can feel myself very slowly turning into a consistent 80's shooter. My best round this season is an 83 even that featured a triple and least a couple of doubles!!
Best advice I agree is there is no strict rule, a beginner can play with any level of people as long as they know basic etiquette and know when to pick up so they don't hold other players up on the golf course.
Had a break through round of sorts today: 42-44, 86. Just one really bad hole a triple. But also had three birdies and I don't think I had made more than one birdie in a round in a very long time. Weird thing is it didn't feel like I even did anything spectacular. Even the GHIN app was a bit confused, got a message saying this round is outside the golfers normal range...lol. Hope this wasn't an anomaly, playing in a men's club tournament tomorrow. Can't wait to see...
Thanks folks some good advice, most of my meltdowns are actually after the tee shot. My biggest weakness right now is my 100-40 yd game. I have issues getting consistent contact and distance with my sand wedge. Either I hit it fat and block it right 20-40% short or I will skull it over the green into trouble. I did it again yesterday, played 18 holes for a 94. If you can believe it that included 2 quads, a triple and a double. So I went 13 over thru just 4 holes and 9 over...
So close that I can smell it!   Okay so my index is 21.3. My last ten or so rounds are consistently in the 90's. The problem is that I know my game is that of a 12-15 handicapper. I keep having 1-2 meltdowns per nine that are keeping me from my goal. Case in point, played a quick nine after work yesterday, went 3 over through 6 holes and 5 over on two (a double and triple). The pattern repeats its self over 18 as well. I shot a 92 the other day with two 8's on the...
Not sure how you mean legal, I am a legit 22 handicap because I count every single stroke I take and assess any penalty(s) where applicable. I have played with golfers who are allegedly much better handicaps than me, but I can consistently beat them week over week. One thing I love about golf is you can fool yourself if you want to and "claim" to be a 15, but you might never putt out and take a couple of mulligans per round. I think if I was as lenient with myself my...
In the week prior I played 90 holes in a 7 day stretch with varying results. This past long weekend + Friday off I played every day early in the morning followed by a busy day with the family. My scores were 92,93,94 and 105! Being a 22 handicap I was convinced that after my 2nd round I would break 90 but as everyone said I think I just ran out of steam. Specially the last back nine of the last round.   One day I hope to regain my former glory and shoot consistently...
Wow, time flies! I haven't logged into this site in what seemed a few years but it is actually 6! My hitch disappeared after life's other priorities such as kids coupled with the lack of steady employment took over. I probably didn't play for about a year or two. I started playing again around 2009 and  I am at a point in my life now where I can play a bit more. My game is again a work in progress. My immediate goal is to break 100 consistently at this point. Baby steps...
[QUOTE=powerfade;87129]What's the pause doing to your swing? Maybe your overall issue is tempo, not the pause? Checkout the book and CD called Tour Tempo and compare it with your swing. If your pause is overexagerated, this book/CD may help. QUOTE] Well the pause as basically ruined my swing. I lose everthing coming down, seeing your suggestions has me thinking, may be I am getting locked when I try to start my downswing hence not able to make a smooth...
", but... does this pause occur with shorter swings?" No actually the problem is with a full swing and more accentuated when I am on the tee..
