  1. What'd You Shoot Today?

    I was very proud of myself the other day when I shot a personal best 3 over 39 on my home 9-hole. 4 bogies, a birdie and a balance of pars.
  2. Keeping hips at tush line

    Could someone explain early extension and "the wall"? I've never heard these terms.:-\
  3. Just for fun - If you HAD to only play with seven clubs?

    I don't use seven different clubs to play my course now. I could go out with a 7I, 56º and putter and probably shoot better than I do with the other clubs.
  4. Consecutive Birdies

    I've only ever had 2 birdies, and they weren't in a row. I can string the pars together from time to time, though.
  5. What is this?

    Metal version of this.
  6. I hope this is true. It means +2 or +3 should be right around the corner The way I stunk up my iron shots today suggests otherwise.
  7. What'd You Shoot Today?

    Today was one of those days that make you question if you should bother playing anymore. Last Thursday I went +3 over six holes (it got dark). Today o got to play the whole 18, and shot a 55 on the first 9, and 51 on the second nine. I just couldn't swing the club today to save my life! I'd duck hook one, then slice the next one, then a pull, then a push.... I was chunking them fat so bad I thought I was going to strike oil. I shot a bloody 10 on a par five that I was inches from birdieing the other day.
  8. Putting - looking at the hole, not the ball

    I have fantastic results looking at the hole on lag puts. I don't think hitting a baseball is a good analogy. Golf balls aren't coming at you  on an unpredictable path at 90MPH. It's more like shooting a free throw. You don't stare at your hand, you stare at the hoop. I also think it's like throwing darts. I tend to do better if I focus on the target and let my mind and body work out the physics. That being said, I still try to make myself do it conventionally, despite doing it better the other way.
  9. My Swing (Pinseeker81)

    My apologies to the mod that had to combine these. I didn't realize I had already posted one two years ago, lol.
  10. My Swing (Pinseeker81)

    I've been Playing Golf for: Maybe a cumulative year out of the last 20. My current handicap index or average score is: Low to mid 40s over 9. My typical ball flight is: Straight or a fade. The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: At this point, probably the occasional fat shot. Videos: These are a bit old, but a good representation of my swing. I will try to get some more recent ones to post soon.
  11. Recording less than a full round

    I'm getting my official handicap in January, and am trying to rack up some scores to enter, and in the meantime I'm recording rounds in Scorecard, but didn't know how to enter partial rounds.
  12. Recording less than a full round

    Thank you, sir. How would one figure out how many extra strokes to card on the unplayed holes if you don't have an official handicap yet? Best guess, or do you assume maximum handicap, or?
  13. How many years of practice to hit a Driver 270+ yards?

    I've always been able to, as long as I hit it center. More swish, less smash.
  14. What'd You Shoot Today?

    I was only able to finish 6 holes cause of night time, but I was +3 after the 6. My best guess is the remaining three would have gone another +2. +1 if I was lucky.
  15. Recording less than a full round

    I did some searching, but couldn't find my answer. It's getting to the time of year that the sun won't allow me to finish a full nine after work at 5:30. I can usually get in 6 or 7 holes before it's too dark to see the course at all. How do you record partial rounds for handicap purposes? Or do you at all?
