Copy. Paste. :)

 

Plus, do you upload from your phone? Put the movie file on your computer or something. Dropbox, man. Dropbox. :)

Yeah, your failed upload borked the system. Nobody else could upload for a few days until I got back from VA Beach and could fix it. ****ing Canadians… :-D

I could just picture @Ernest Jones practicing the split handed grip and doing it too much, so his next video is going to have one hand on the butt of the club and the other down the middle of the shaft. I suppose that's probably a pretty natural way for him to grip a stick b2_tongue.gif

56* from 110 yards. DARTS,BABY, DARTS!!


Made the 12 footer for Birdie too.

110?? With a 56? I thought I was doing all right hitting my 50 110.

You trying out for long drive soon??

I thought it was well known that EJ is a big hitter...in fact...oh never mind.  ;-)

Funny, that didn't even register when I first read it.  Impressive, EJ!!  My 54 barely goes 110 when I smack it.

I've gotten longer. My course has a 100 yard par 3 that used to be a 56* for me but now I hit pin high with my 60*, my 56* flies the green by about 10 yards even choked down. And as you can tell by the pitch mark in the picture, I'm not delofting, those bombs are coming in STEEP!

 

Bombed my 4H 220ish this morning, no gps but the tee markers were in line with the 275 plaque and my second shot was from about halfway in from the 100 yard marker. Ironically I hit my 4H over my 3H or 3W because I was worried about running out of fairway, there's a slight dogleg at about 100 yards out from the pin, I had about 5 yards to spare or I would've been in the woods.

 

So, yeah, I'm kind of a big deal.

B-)

I was also +13 after 9.

:whistle:

Sounds pretty similar to what I hit distance wise. Executive 9 I play has a par 3 that's 129 and I hit my 50* just over the back pin. Wish I had taken the picture of it. It was about 135 in the air.

 

 

Just a side note, topflite gamer soft golfballs are pretty good. They seem to play almost exactly the same for me as Q Stars for about $10 less per dozen.

Yeah my distance drops off a bit once I get into longer clubs, probably less centred strikes. I have a 136 yard par 3 that I hit my 9 iron if it's on the back tier and my PW if it's on the front. Greens slightly elevated though and there's a pretty generous backstop. I also don't swing for the fences on that hole because the clubhouse windows are right behind it.:-P

Horrible round of golf tonight. I was a bit early so I did a 3 hole loop while waiting for my buddy. Par, Bogey, Par. Everything is working fine.

 

My buddy shows up and we tee off. Pull-Shank it OB, which I believe is a shot that only @cipher and myself can pull off. Tee it up again and boom it with a nice high trajectory...and a 20 yrs push :-O. Find it, chip out yadda, yadda, yadda...card a snowman.

 

Second hole (par 3) another huge push into the trees, I know it opens up a bit on the other side for the cart path so might be ok-ish. Tee up a provisional, push it so bad I think it may have been a shank. Continued hilarity ensues for the remainder of the round. Pulled it together for back to back pars at one point but was too out of it at that point to salvage much from the round.

 

It's funny, I was getting great contact but with insane directional variances, which lead to doubt and on-course swing tinkering which lead to confusion and chaos. Not really too concerned, I connected with my swing enough times during the round to know I still have it just couldn't recover enough to turn the round around. I probably need to shift my play/practice ratio a bit, I tend to just hit the course instead of the range when the opportunity arises. Plus the course is already paid for, the range is out of pocket.

The bold is the story of my season.  Maybe not insane directional variances, but inconsistent ones.  I go about every other round at the moment where keys 4 and 5 are decent and when they are off.  It is so tough to find consistency with path/face.  I think guys that are consistent with those keys they call scratch or sompin' like dat. ;-)  The next time you go out, you will probably be just fine. 

 

The pull shank is a very impressive shot to have in the bag BTW. :-D
