Just shot 100 for the 1st time - Page 2

Interesting. I usually start out well with bogeys and maybe a par and then around the 5th or 6th hole hit a shank and it'll take a few holes to recover mentally.

UPDATE:

I broke 100 on Saturday! 97. Crazy round. 55 on front-9 and 42 on back-9 (3 pars and a birdie on the the back).

 

1 Birdie
3 pars
6 bogies
6 doubles
2 quadruples

 

3 fairways
2 GIRs
2 penalties
0 sand shots
31 putts


Observations:
1) I was not penalty free. Mishit a drive out of bounds on #2 and hit one into a water hazard on #4.
2) Most of my tee shots off the par-4s and par-5s (Driver) were not that good. My typical miss right now is a slice to the right. I can get the ball ~200-230+, but they are in the rough or on the other fairway. Need to get better stability and confidence with this club. Right now it is just too much of a crap shoot each time.
3) It feels good to get into double digits
4) Shot 108 on Sunday :) Never got into a good rhythm, but did some good things. Clearly there is much work still to be done!

Congratulations!  You are just about there to break 100 - keep it up and you will be in the low 90's in another year.

Thanks. The good news is that I in fact did so over the weekend.  It was a mixed round, but did very well on the back-9 (detailed in previous post).

 

Appreciate the encouragement! Sometimes I feel like progress is just so elusive. I guess that's golf though and just have to keep reminding myself to be patient and set proper expectations..
