Here are approach shots  for Erik, Bill, John, and Jonny on Hole #18 John,   Bill, Jonny,  Erik,     

Let's not do this, please. You've clearly never seen @saevel25 on the first tee, after all. 😉 We all know "golf" and we all know that some of us will hit some good shots, all of us will hit some

Here's my first (final?) stab at groupings: Saturday @ Bedford Springs, 11:00: @iacas @Slim_Pivot @Divot Master Saturday @ Bedford Springs, 11:10: @Hardspoon

OK I dug out my 20-year old yardage book, I'll be studying it for the next 3 days (not really).  I'm really looking forward to this, a chance to play with  @saevel25, my Newport Cup teammate, and meet a new friend with @Divot Master.  And of course, a chance to see a few more old friends and meet some more new friends in the other groups.  Thanks to @GolfLug and @iacas for setting this all up.:beer:

Looking forward to it, too! The weather looks "okay" for this time of year. Dress in layers, folks, but really… 55-59° or so is pretty good.

So... earmuffs? 😜

    • Day 27 (23 Jul 21) - long day w/the grandkids, decided a few minutes with the putter was what was needed.  Worked on backswing - downswing length making sure both are equal length.  
    • Has anyone successfully got a round off of a GG Live system via computer in the past few days?  I'm wondering if Wednesday's failure was related to some sites disappearing briefly from the internet (although I was able to access the GG site).   Right now, mine is just recharging so I can use it on Sunday.  Would be nice to get the stats for today.
    • Day 149.  I played 18 today with two friends.  A very narrow course (the "Babe" course in Industry Hills), I had three lost balls that I don't think would have left the playing area if I had hit them at my home course.   I should have lost a fourth but sadly found it (my recovery was sufficiently difficult, and I tried playing high percentage shots, too, that I hit my fourth from closer to the tee than my provisional landed).  I still shot a 93 and hit many greens with full swings, even if they weren't all for in-regulation (but I still had 6 GIR).   Note to self:  play narrow courses a bit more, and get better at these tee shots. Also I feel I putted well but I'm not going to gamble trying to get the stats off the GG.
    • That's Ok, but not a very ambitious goal at all. It should be pretty straightforward to get within 10%. 30 ft is a typical distance for a first putt (even for the pros), and you should hardly ever 3-putt those, so the key is to be within 3 ft (or 10%). Put it another way, when you have a cross-country (or cross green) putt of 90 ft, a decent result is to be around 6ft, or 9ft if you want, so 10%.  20% puts you. way too far out. To the OP, I was the worst putter in the world when I started. It took me almost 4 years of playing 9 holes after work on Fridays to get my first par, because I was on very few greens (1 or maybe 2 at most per 9), but because I was 3-putting from everywhere. I fixed this by practicing dialing in the speed correctly. And that also means hitting the ball reliably with the center of the face. Then hone yours skills on reading greens, but the most important part remains controlling the speed. FWIW, some 15 years after I made that first par, putting is the strength of my game and I only 3-putt about 2% of the holes according to my stats (in GolfPad), or about 1 hole every 3 rounds, on average.  You too can do it: it's much easier than drastically improving one's long game!
