Thanks.

This one's from yesterday. The follow-through seems less forced with my arms in this one.

Also, GRASS! Wooooooooo!

Thanks! I was hitting it really well.

FWIW, it was probably one of the least enjoyable rounds of golf I've ever played. I woke up with a stomach ache, and felt like absolute shit the entire round. I couldn't stomach breakfast, so I was hungry the whole time. And to make it worse, I was eaten alive by mosquitoes on the first four holes before I went to my car to grab bug spray. Like Joba Chamberlain in Cleveland bad before the spray, and barely tolerable with it. I was also hitting behind a guy dressed in full Heisenberg gear spraying fertilizer on the green, and now I've got a pounding headache.

That's all to say: I had absolutely zero feel for my swing.

(I don't mean these as excuses or complaints or anything. I played bad because I played bad. Just giving some background.)

The only reason I shot +2 37 was because it was a really, really easy course. Anyway, that'll be up in a bit.

Also: my voice is the absolute worst. I'm cringing the whole way through the edit.

The course is Hopedale Country Club, in Hopedale, MA. It's not nearly a fancy as the title makes it sound, and measures only 3086 yards. So it's not a tough course.

I made bogey at 2 and 5, everything else was a par.

(I make fun of myself in the titles a few times. I'm mostly goofing around.)

It was cool watching you make these pars.

 

Thanks for sharing. BTW, your voice sounds fine. From the way you were prepping us I thought we would get a Frankie Valli impersonation.

Thanks. I'm not sure that was my best swing, but it came off well and was definitely the best result.

I have also a weird sort of history with that hole. It's the longest hole relative to its par (by that I mean there's no 450-yard par 4s or 600-yard par 5s on this course), but I've always played it fairly well. The green is pretty big and there's plenty of space to run the ball up.

Yeah that tee shot on nine was pretty amazing. Nice work!

Just got back from the range. I had been struggling mightily with my swing for the past few weeks, but I felt MUCH better today. I haven't watched a lot of the video yet, but I'll try to get some up later tonight.

Okay. So the video's not as encouraging as I thought. Most of my swings were very flippy and chicken-wingy.



I was hitting the ball pretty well.

I also did some drill work later on that looked pretty good.



After that I filmed some behind, and I was scorching the ball:



So just a matter of getting some more range time in and staying focused.

Looks good. Just make sure that these swings translate to the golf course. Some of the swings in your vlog were a bit… different. :)

 

But really, looks good. Best it's been in years. You're on the team with Mike and I in August right? :)

Nice work, keep it up!

This time, zero chunks that travel 10 yards!

Played Highfields Golf and Country Club yesterday after finding out that they now have a deal where anyone under 25 can play 18 holes for $20.

Shot 72 from the gold tees (72.2, 136), even par. Hit the ball EXTREMELY well. I was a little wild with my driver early on, but by the back nine I just locked in. I only truly mishit one iron shot, a tee ball on the par-three fifth. Everything else was pretty much flush.

Hit 10/14 fairways, 13/18 greens, and my short game was pretty solid. Took 31 putts. Birdied the last two holes. Had a bunch of other medium-length chances that just didn't fall. Lag putted well.

Should have vlogged it. :)

 

Congrats. First even-par round on a decent course (i.e. not some pitch and putt)?

I was actually going to. I had a tee time for 7AM where I would be able to play by myself, but I had to change it to 1PM. Got paired up with some guys and didn't want to slow them down.

Congrats. Excellent round. What felt better, the score? Or hitting the ball solid the whole round?
