Hello TST!


Recommended Posts

Hi All! I am a long time lurker of the forum who finally decided to register and start participating in golf discussion.

I’m eager to improve, currently taking lessons at GOLFTEC, and have reduced my handicap from ~18 to 10.9 over the last 5 years in a self-taught manner.

Broke 80 twice last season which was a big confidence boost. I am hoping to bring my 20-round rolling average differential down from ~14 to ~11 by the end of this season. I focus more on average differential than handicap as I prefer a flatter distribution of my scores, it allows me to enjoy golf much more.

Bought and read LSW last season which was very helpful from a strategy perspective. Primarily working on technical improvement to full swings with my instructor, distance control on chips/pitches, and lag putting.

    • Played again this morning to try and get out before a lot of people came (no tee times required at the Methodist course). And honestly, not much to say about the round. I can pretty much summarize today’s round by saying this: I had a rough start and couldn’t get anything going. Parred 10 and 11 to start the back nine, but a three-putt for bogey on 12 ruined my momentum. The final numbers were 47-44 for a 91. Not great. I also have a required PAT in two weeks at that course (more about that in my blog post today), so I’ve gotta get working.
    • Day 28: 8/13/2022 Worked on my priority pieces today with a 7 iron. It was all block practice. However, I only focused on one thing at a time. Working hard to try to get a movement engrained into my swing. No random practice today. 
    • Just curious, why did you bring this thread back to life? 
    • I have a golfing friend whose entire body is pretty beat up from multiple injuries.  Hits down on the ball a lot.  He's close to a scratch player.  A true range rat.  He finds 4 pine cones to put in a rectangle under the mat aligning with his hitting area.
    • Thanks for all the good ideas. I’m current practicing on a new Top Tracer range at our course. The mat does seem softer than many I have used at regular driving ranges. But still you can tell if you hit it really fat. It hurts. The data it gives for each shot isn’t very informative. It shows carry, total distance, height and how much it curves. I think we can tell most of that without the feedback.
