Well I finally did it. Went out yesterday with my girlfriends stepdad and had a GREAT round.

Played the back nine first and was 1 under through 4. Then I topped my tee shot on a par 3 and ended up with a double - 1 over through 5 - still happy with my score. Bogied the next hole ( 3 putt...missed a 2 foot par putt.... ) and then parred out for 38. Was secretly excited about my round.

Back nine was O.K. Started off with another 3 putt bogey again missing from around 3 feet...kinda annoying, but went out with a 41 after hitting my tee shot on the 18th into water and double bogeying the hole.

Despite my two 3 putts, I was putting well ( 33 putts ) - but sunk a couple of par putts from 10 feet. Five 1 putts, four of them to save par, one for a birdie from around 4 feet on a par 3.

My driver was good ( only hit 4 fairways ) but my misses were only just off the fairway, in first cut. My irons were GREAT. Distance control was right on and have myself plenty of birdie chances but never made the putt. Hit 10 greens.

Stepdad shot 78 so we had a good battle. Not only did I break 80, got back down into single digits and fixed my blocks ( started rotating completely through my shots with my chest pointing at target, no more blocks! )

Feeling good about my game. Can NOT WAIT to go out and play again, sink some of those birdies I missed and shoot a new personal best

Awesome job... it's great whenever you can break down one of those score barriers!  I remember the first time I broke 100... it was great and I'm so close to breaking 90 now... hopefully this time next year I'll be talking about breaking 80 (although those are high hopes).

Anyways, congrats on the accomplishment.

    • Might be slow, but I'm sorta liking these guys...
    • Slow play is not keeping up with the group in front, unless its a group of really fast players.   The question is how to remedy it.  I play with guys who shoot high 70’s low 80’s whose pre-shot routines are intermidable.  In addition they are elderly and just move slow.  So as the young-un in the group I rush, especially on the green.  They play from the correct tees, it just takes them forever to go thru their routine.   Yesterday I played as a single.  Arrived at the course at 3 and was told to be off before 5 due to league play. I finished in 92 mins and played thru two other groups.  My goal is to not 3 putt and no 7’s on the card.  Shot 85. High scores does not automatically mean slow play.  
    • Day 63, July 27, 2021: Three-quarter swing work again today, hey I may lose a little bit of distance, but I know where the ball is going. Rinse, Repeat, keep working on it kind of deal. I’m having small successes with the 3/4 swing so something must be working.
    • Day 153.  Before grocery shopping, I stopped at a putting green and worked for half an hour on 3' and 30' putts.  The end of the 3' practice included taking 17 shots to finish all 12 for my clock drill (not great, but not as bad as a month ago) and the 30' finished with my final six putts from 30' (due to this green, they weren't significantly different on the clockface, so I'm still getting a similar read, but I know better than to assume it.  And of course, I had to hit them the right speed) with a total of 11 strokes (five 2-putts and I also sank one). After lunch and before gym, I did the quarantine days 9 (again, with feedback from yesterday) + 10 (which took a while to get right... I'm not even sure I got it right, video to show up later today). Addendum:  I haven't figured out my trigger for the day 10 practice plan.  That's going to take me a bit more thought
    • MD: 89 (Black/Orange combo tees): 89. Up and down sandy on 17th was nice. One of my better sand shots of the week.  SV: 98 (Black tees).. Tough day. Bit too much of a course for me from black tees. Drive on 18 uphill was a bright spot that stood out though.  SV: 89 (Orange tees).. phew.. much better. 2nd shot on 16 uphill from 198 out over bunker with a borrowed 3 iron (thanks @DeadMan.. :-)) that dropped and stopped within a two feet for a kick-in might be the shot of the week for me.  LL: 92, 92 back-to-back on the same day. Tried my darndest hard to break 90 but couldn't twice. Best shot 8 iron on 7th par 3 from 155 for a bird.  Lac La Bell: 107. Forgettable day score-wise except for holes 15-16 where I finally hit couple of good drives.
