Glad youre back-But nobody "attacked you" and that is where you went wrong. YOu took people giving you GOOD ADVICE as an attack.

Good luck. If you want this thread to be a diary-I can go along with that. I can tell you the ending though.

When people tell me how bad I am and start, what I feel is attacking me, it really gets to me. I'm having a hard time with some stuff and I'm not here to get tons and tones of advice and critique. Some tips and stuff are great. When I say I'm trying something and someone is telling me I'm doing it wrong and such but it's working for me I don't see the problem. Anywho I'll give this site another try because the advice is good for reference. I'll keep this thread on topic and as a "diary" as Erik mention so here we go

Shot an 87 at morongo with 31 putts. Had my closest chance and a hole in one. Rolled back and missed the cup by about 6 inches so that was cool. Shot a 94 at rancho california in the wind and rain. Have my third tournament tomorrow at Pelican Hill South course. I'll keep my progress listed.


Nice to see you haven't disappeared.

 

PM me the information on your business, I think we might be up for something during Spring Break.

Kyle- Glad your back, but i don't think anyone was telling you how bad you were, it's was more to temper you're enthusiasm to be a scratch golfer when we all know how difficult it is to reach that level?

Kyle.@, we are all rooting for you and very glad you're back. Good luck tomorrow!

Ps I'm at the strand house right now, hammered drunk!!!

I actually did try the one handed putting drills and it is really helping with distance control

Maybe he deserves this maybe he does not.  How about we let it go Phil?

post #373 of 748
Whats to let go? Im just asking him to do what he said he would do. Wish him nothing but the best-But he will be able to get his best if he takes what others have told him the way it was given.

The 87's might be on a course he is real comfortable on. I can see the tourney pressure adding strokes. Also a new course could add a few more. I try to give people the benefit of the doubt. In 2012 I had a 85 on a course is never played at that time that was my lowest score from the tips. So I can understand that some days it just goes good.

We cant really know without his feedback.-Im just waiting for his retelling, his 'Diary" entry so you say.

Perhaps this thread should be scrapped or the title changed, so that it reflects a renewed purpose?  That way we can put these things in the proper context.  

 

I think if a person is pursuing scratch, then the "tough love" is probably appropriate.  It seems like that's not the goal anymore, right?

I'd be willing to, but @KyleAnthony should get to tell us what title he'd like.

 

In the meantime, I've renamed it "Operation: Single Digits" as the last time he posted he said 7.9 was his new goal, IIRC.

post #378 of 748

Good idea Erik. What's this Phil guy's problem? Kyle's life is not golf like your's is. He clearly said that scratch was not the immediate goal anymore. Maybe he doesn't have time to update this "diary" for some random golf teacher's muse, so quit harassing him to do so . . . your intentions to respond to his updates are irrelevant.
