Slower backswings with a slightly faster through swing. Swinging at perhaps 60-65% of my "normal speed" I honestly don't lose much distance with it. So I think I might use this for a while. "Ledge" gave me this tip on Sunday. (After my match). He told me, I would be more consistent with it, so I'm giving it a shot.
As August has 31 days, I've completed the "5 Minutes Daily" challenge for August.
@iacas, how do I make text red in mobile?
I would average maybe one birdie a round at best these days since I am only playing weekends, and mostly not even every weekend. When I was playing more regularly, between 1 and 3 birdies a round depending on the day. Overall, I would say a low percentage but I rarely keep stats on GIR and birdies. The maximum is in tournaments when I tend to keep score but having turned in the card I never keep the data. Should start doing that. Would assume GIR of maybe 50% at present and maybe 10% at best for GIR to birdie. Handicap is low double digits though have not updated it in my home club since rarely play there these days
IMO, if you know someone is about to hit your ball, you should give them a heads up. This is a gentlemen's game. Ultimately it is the player hitting the shot responsibility to identify the ball and make sure. Its bad taste, but not a penalty if you let them hit your ball.
In my club championship last week I found a ball in the rough that I thought was my competitors. I said "hey your'e hitting a black titleist, right?" He says yeah and plays the ball. We get to the green and its not his ball. I felt pretty bad for finding the ball (his original was like 3ft away from the wrong ball played). He reassured me it was his fault for not looking at it before hitting it. Both were black titleists but his had a logo on the side (I didnt see it or know about the logo).
Haha! I got it right away as I followed your thread. Ya I was pretty upset with the score. It was one of those rounds where I wasn't playing good so instead of playing the game I had for the day I was trying to fix it. No good. There was a pro that shot a 92, so for as upset as I was, he had to feel much much worse as he paid over triple what I paid to get in.
I know though, as a 1.1 I should never shoot anything more than +2 in around right?!? Hahah!!
