16 year old breaks two course records in one week.

Recommended Posts

TN94z    65

Scottie Scheffler of Dallas Highland Park fired off two 61s in one week to break two course records....and he's only 16 years old!  Wow!  I couldn't imagine going that low at that age....or any age for that matter.  Not to mention the fact that on the back 9 of the Northwood Course, he only needed 8 putts to get the job done.  How about that?  8 putts!

Quote:

Playing with friends on his birthday last Thursday, Scheffler shot 10-under 61 at Northwood, breaking the course record held by Hunter Mahan. This came exactly one week after Northwood celebrated the 60th anniversary of hosting the 1952 U.S. Open.

At least Scheffler paid homage, sort of, to Open champ Julius Boros by taking only eight putts on the back nine. In 1952 Boros had 11 putts on the back nine in the morning round then one-putted seven of the final nine greens in the afternoon.

Two days after scorching Northwood, Scheffler shot 9-under 61 at Dallas Country Club, matching the mark set recently by Kelly Kraft on the remodeled layout.

That's amazing.  I wonder what effect that had on his handicap.

At Hunt Valley Golf Club we had a 5 handicap drop a 60.  The dude hit a long ball.  Was playing the blue and white nines.  Went out in 27 and came back in 33.  Hole in one on the first hole (a par 4) followed by an eagle on the 2nd (par 5).  Eagled the other par 5 on the front too.  3 putted the last hole for a 60.  They still have his scorecard and a newpaper clipping about it hanging in the locker room.

One in a billion.  From what I've heard about the guy he could go out one day and shoot mid 60's and then 85 the next.  Very hot and cold.

Sounds like one of the pros where I work. Guy plays a practice round and shoots 89. The next day in the tournament cards a 72.

    • I play steel in my 4 and 6 hybrids (dont play a 5 at the moment). The 4 is TM burner with a OEM steel shaft but the 6 is one i built on the cheap as an experiment. Its an Acer XDS, fitted with an Appollo steel shaft. Its the cheapest one they do and its spot on. You can get the Appollo Shadow lite are Acculite for decent prices through Nordica golf 
    • It's not an informed opinion but I have tried a DG s300 in a 5 wood head and found that the overall weight was very heavy. I was able to get the swingweight down to d2 but the whole club felt like I was swinging a mallet. Since the DG SL is about 20grams lighter ( lower ball flight) or AWT ( Mid Ball flight) I would opt for either of these, bearing in mind that the shaft would have to be parallel tip hosel .370 to fit the Adams Pro .370. ( I could be wrong here but hopefully someone that knows more will pitch in )
    • Hiya All I've been Playing Golf for: 10 years - with a 5 year kid break My current handicap index or average score is: 18
      My typical ball flight is: pull/pull draw
      The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: pull draw Current swing thoughts are -Posture don't arch back and neck -Start backswing with right ass cheek -Just rotate on the way back, don't sway to the right -downswing - rotate body, rotate, rotate...ROTATE! -impact try to drive club face forward (impact bag feeling) not flip Not all at the same time, of course! Videos:      The hand signals show the ball flight on DTL. This is a 6I This is a selection of shots, I've not given you the highlights real. Shank happens once every 20-30 Push every 15-20 over draw every other shot.  
    • Probably this,   No specifically, but the overall confidence level is probably low.  
    • This I really agree with.  Really   As it happens I went for the trackman certified guy.  Thanks for the all the thoughts, At lot of them made a lot of sense. Not sure I really got an answer into the fundamental question -How do you know if the advice you are being given is just plain wrong? I, for one, don't want to waste a couple of months being shown the wrong path.  It's a difficult game and weeding out the good advice from the bad is tricky.  The best I've found is to look at how an instructor fixes a "problem"  If they talk about fixing the movements that lead up to the problem, the previous links in the chain, then they get more points.  If they just fix the problem without referring to anything else, then they lose points with me.   Thanks for the help all. Now to get to the range again!
