BREAKTHROUGH!!!!!!! ok so @mvmac mentioned key #1 keep your head still. i went to the range before my round today and it worked great. as i played my round i hit the firs 5 greens and the first 4 fairways. i did get a triple because i left my club face open on the 7th hole. i was pretty happy with the nearly immediate success i had. i do have a pinched nerve in my back/hip area but i wasn't to bad today. can't wait for my tournament Sunday at Monarch Beach in Dana Point. oh and today i shot a 41-47 88 at Tuwet Canyon from the tips 73.3/134 6804

also i experimented with a flat swing today which was way different. higher ball flight and not as much effort for distance. i'll post up a video of my flat swing vs. my normal steep swing. probably saturday at the range

FYI ... you're 5 groups ahead of me.  Means I may slice one into you when you're on 14 and I'm on 12, so watch your back!  Could also cross paths in the tunnel between 2/4 and 3/4.

 

Good luck!

Is the tournament flighted? If so, I'm assuming different flights?

LOL ... I will NOT be wearing my bright red pants (which I wore last tournament) but otherwise have not picked out my duds for Sunday.

Thanks!!  Yes.  They are broken down in groups of <4 cap, 4-8, 8-12, 12-16, 16-20, and 20+

 

I'm currently in the 8-12 group, and Kyle is in the 12-16.  I've been hitting it pretty well at the range the last couple of weeks, so hopefully that carries over Sunday!

 

I really want to move up to the 4-8 group, but I need a couple more good tournament rounds to get there.  (Or one great one ;))

Here is the course website.  We're (both) playing the Gold tees, although they consistently try to get as around 6400-6500 for my group, so they'll probably push some of them back.  And here is the tournament page.

 

The last two years, my flight was won with an 84 ... which is very, very doable.

Nice course.  Yeah.....looks like low 80's is real doable......but then, you and I both know that anything can happen in a tournament.  I'm fully capable of shooting 75 or 95.  :doh:

I noticed par 70 so low 80's should not be too difficult and high 70's is in the realm I would think.

A lot of short par 4's. Nothing heroic. Hit a bunch of greens, no 3 putts, and walk away with the hardware!
