Finally broke 90 yesterday and shot a +15.
Main areas I felt that helped a lot bring the low 90 scores under 90 were the following:
- Got more consistent with driver. Went from slicing almost everything badly to occasionally slicing a third of the time. It is a lot improved from where it was last year, but i feel like it is still the worst club in the bag for me. I feel like i can shave off another 2-4 strokes if I can keep it consistently on the fairway.
- Play a lot more looser and don't overthink things. I tend to tighten up and screw up the short game if i overthink it.
- Don't three putt
- More consistent Iron play. My misses are a lot less horrible w/ the irons compared to last year.
I listen to him closely, and each other commentator, and they have a lot of good points they make. PA makes some inappropriate comments occasionally , but it's probably very difficult to be flawless. I would probably mute the TV based on commercials, and not the commentators. I can't stand TV commercials as they are geared towards low IQ individuals it seems.
Just use a friendly match play, no money has to be involved. If we have a foursome, it's team best ball, threesome it's skins and twosome it's singles. That way you need his score and can call him out after every hole. He'll fall in line very quickly. Our group never has to call out anybody. You have a clear winner/loser, so who cares what he puts on his scorecard after that? If he's reporting a handicap, he's only hurting himself.
