75 (+2) on a fairly difficult course. Only one other player broke 80 that day.
My best ball striking round of the year. I had quite a few looks at birdie inside 15 feet. If I had putted well, I could've shot par or better.
If you're serious about getting better you should probably see a professional for some guidance. Even if just help with fundamentals like grip alignment and posture.
I think higher handicaps that are looking to get better should shoot for a thirds approach. Maybe a third range work, third short game and putting, and a third playing. Drink beer for the other 1%.
With the release of "Alexa" and other so called smart home conveniences we are already there. There is at least on investigation/court case where the device, and I'm assuming it's recorded events, has been subpoenaed.
Just made the purchase of 5 dozen of the Pro Plus after reading countless reviews positive and negative all over the web. Not bad to spend $161 for 5 dozen golf balls with my business logo shipped to me. Hopefully they are something I can continue playing, otherwise I guess they always make a good gift...
I shot 86 twice on my home course but my most memorable round came on Sea Oaks CC near the Jersey Shore. My 11 year old grandson and I were paired with a father/daughter twosome and although they were very cordial the father could not help being over exuberant when he made a good shot, in many cases challenging me to do the same. Each time, with my grandson watching me, I pulled off a shot better than I thought I was able to. Now, I had a few 3 putts and a penalty stroke along with a few doubles but was striking the ball well on most shots. On the 18th, the other man and I both sliced our drives into the Jersey white pines on the right with me having the worse lie. He was away and hit a great shot that wound up on the left side of the green and said "let's see you match that!". I had a small opening out of the pines and had to put a wicked slice on the ball to the green. Using a 5h I gave it a whack and it shot through the tree opening and then cut way back toward the green (who says you can't work a hybrid!). When we got to the green I was 8 inches from the hole and my grandson just said "Wow" and the father said that it was the best shot he had seen in a long time. I tapped in for the birdie and I could not stop smiling driving back to the beach while my grandson kept looking at me and grinning. OK, it was only a 91, but the best round of the year.
