One of my goals for the year was to break 70 and I achieved it yesterday with a 69 on my home course. Its a par 70 and I had a 35 on the front and 34 on the back.

Highlights
1 eagle
6 birdies
-5 on the Par 5s
+1 on the Par 3s

Low lights
+3 on Par 4s including 2 bogeys, 2 double bogeys and 3 birdies
Missed a 8 foot birdie putt on 14
Missed a 5 foot birdie putt on 17 (nerves)
Drove into the trees on 18 and then proceeded to 3 putt for bogey (nerves)

I scrambled my butt off for the entire round, so it certainly didn't feel like a stellar performance. I was a little surprised that my score affected my game the way it did on the closing holes. This year I've tried hard to immerse myself in my routine but wow, I was pretty shaky on the last 2 holes.

Nonetheless, pretty stoked today! I was a 19 handicap 2 years ago, so lots of hard work has paid off!

If you are a 7.0 handicap like what you have listed, that sure is a damn good accomplishment. Not only that but you had two double-bogies yet still kept your cool instead of blowing up after them. Way to go!!!!

    • I'd like to see either Janewattanaond or Bezuidenhout come from behind tomorrow and win.  Then, maybe, their names would end up on Wheel of Fortune and if you bought a vowel you'd hit the jackpot!
    • I went to the range and missed most of the back nine but it was an enjoyable day of golf.  I think Hovland’s +5 may have been my fault since I put some $$ on him.
    • Sorry to root against you.☺️
    • And there I was thinkin' he might be my #2 to root for 
    • Finally got out to play today. Went pretty well, I was finally making good contact. I’ve been trying to feel like my tailbone moves over toward my left heel. Proper hip turn feels pretty drastic but gives much more time to square the face vs swaying on the way back. It feels like I am doing way more hip turn than I actually am. Here is a video showing that.      The only issue I was having today was some over drawing. But man this looks like a giant improvement, more in sync, more shaft lean at impact. I still look like I’m over-swinging some but I like where this is headed. I think lol.
