June 13, 2021 - PA/OH/NY Meetup (Deer Ridge GC, OH)


Recommended Posts

  • Administrator

@boogielicious and @billchao are coming in mid-June for a few days, and Sunday the 13th we'd like to schedule a little TST meetup.

The location could be almost anywhere within about two hours in Pittsburgh, Ohio, or New York. I think the best idea may be to consider where those who are interested are coming from, and to play somewhere in that direction.

If we get six, we get six. If we get 12, we get 12. But if you're interested, let's sign up quickly so that we can choose a course and get some tee times here quickly.

My father passed away Friday, after a four year battle with Alzheimer's dementia.  For a long time, it was an evenly matched struggle between an insidious disease and a strong, elegant man. Unfortunat

Well that was certainly an interesting 11 minutes. They moved it because you told them you had a TST outing, right? 😉

I’m wearing mine just to troll @ChetlovesMer.

It's just south of Mansfield, OH.

Unfortunately I won't be able to make the meetup, have a wedding in southern Ohio the night before, but I did play Deer Ridge last fall and really enjoyed it.

It was in great condition and felt pretty secluded, didn't really see any houses, just the course and woods. 

It has a good mix of holes, a couple short/reachable par 4s, some narrow holes, some wide open holes, some decent elevation changes both off the tee and on approach shots.

Here is the view for the tee shot on hole 8, a big sweeping dogleg left par 4 that is 365-400 yds depending on the tees but plays significantly shorter since it is so far down hill, my friend and I cut the corner over the trees and we both had less than 50 yds left for our second shots.

Changed to definite. Just so you know, this is my birthday. I will let everyone know my favorite brands as well as my shirt, waist, and shoe size are so that they can make the appropriate gift choices. 🤣

The only brand that matters is what beer you drink :beer:

    • Replace the grip if you want, but a new putter won't matter (unless it makes you practice more).  There's some great putting and short game drills in chapter 9 of Every Shot Counts by Mark Broadie. His drills are also games, with scoring that measures objective skill level.   Also recommend The Putting Bible by Dave Pelz. 
    • A strange round of golf yesterday. I played from the red tees (plays just 5350 yards).  My ballstriking is not very crisp these days, but hopefully I can sort that out soon. It was a round of two halves, as usual. Front 9:  Could not hit fairways or greens at all on the front, 2/9 greens and 2/6 fairways, but still shot +2 on the front. That includes 2 shots in the bunker on hole 4, a horrible misshit that lead to a double on hole 7, topped my driver 80 yards twice and the only 2 fairways I hit were with short irons in hand. 11 putts on the front 9 says a lot about that tretch of holes.  Birdie on both par 5s on the front is allways nice.  37 shots, par 35 Back 9:  A little better ballstriking even though I hit 2 shots OB, leading to a tripple and a double, 4/7 fairway and 4/9 greens. The short game was more off here and I left a couple of chips a bit short. 17 putts is not as good as I'd like it to be. 1 threeputt, but I think I would threeputt from there more often than not, as it was a 60 foot downhill putt with a lot of break where I gave it a little to much speed. Birdie on hole 15 (short par 3) and on hole 17 was nice, and I missed a short birdieputt on, the tough par 3, 11. Had 165 yards in after a decent drive on the par 5 18, but managed the top the approach and miss the green from 90 yards after that and walk off with a bogey after also missing the 5 foot par save. 44 shots, par 37.  81 shots is not bad, but I make to many misstakes from tee, making golf a lot harder than it needs to be. I hit driver on 8 holes: 1 fairway hit (265 yards), 1 OB, hit short and low slices mostly except from the two topped 80 yard ones, avg. 240 yards today. My drives are usually 270-320 yards depending on wind and course, so my driving is not where it should be. My short game is not perfect, but it's certainly better than my hcp right now.  Playing a round at an away course today. There is a curse hanging over that course that needs to be lifted. Good luck me 😉  
    • Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.
    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.  
    • Day 68, August 1, 2021:  My backswing is still too long. I’m trying to get it shorter I look at it on film and it’s way too long, did some pitching length swing length feeling swings, so it’s probably half to three quarter length backswing.
