Played hookie from work yesterday and played golf. Shot 73 (par 71). I finally started hitting it better yesterday after a couple of garbage rounds the past couple of weeks. It's amazing how one little thing can ruin your whole swing. The funny thing is, the wife told me what I was doing wrong and I didn't believe her.

What'd you shoot today (2013 edition)
Had a lazy 9 holes today and shot 43 on a par 34 course.
2 pars and 1 birdie and managed to hit the fairway and greens in regulation for these three holes!
Biggest improvement was putting with only one three putt hole, four two putt holes and four 1 putt holes. Probably the first time Ive had less than 20 putts in a round of golf for this rank beginner :)
Shot 10 over in the front and 1 over at the back nine playing from the back tee.
I have 2 penalties ( OB ) on the front and having trouble to get up and down .
I finally put my ball in play on the back 9 and was i under through 7 holes .Ended the back 9 with bogey bogey ...
It is all about driving accuracy and confidence , need to bring that to the next game this weekend.
Just ducked out for a quick 9 holes after work.
Decided to take onboard some tips ive read off these forums to help with driving accuracy and boy i wish i slowed my drive swing down a bit more often.
Ending up hitting the ball only 10-15m shorter but far, far straighter. Even into a headwind which is a massive new logic to me haha.
Ended up shooting 5 over par for 9 holes which is very efficient for me just getting back into the swing of things.
Cant wait to knock out a full round tomorrow after work
Last 3 days where very windy 30mph I shot 76,81,81, today no wind and shot 73 putting was very good on tough greens, tree line course. Today I used a modified stack and tilt swing with weight stay 50/50 and no early pop up, it really felt good. I have so many swings who know what I will use the weekend. But that's what makes my game fun I never stay with one swing to long unless I'm playing for money.
First time out in over three months (since I had ankle surgery).
Shot 85 -- pretty pleased with that.
Got a birdie, seven pars, seven bogeys, a double, and two triples.
Missed a bunch of fairways.
Best of all, I finished the round pain free! (Walked the front nine, took a cart for the back nine.)
