Shot 85 today at VFW in Hermitage. Did okay. Nothing bad really just lots of bogeys.

Super mad right now. I am boiling because Alex Wagner is a Mercyhurst Prep senior and I kept her score because we were close but I wasn't her marker. She shot 88 and said she shot 85 right after I said I shot 85. You can see the erase marks on the scorecard. I tried to talk to her and the other girl about it but the other girl doesn't care because she shot 106 so she just agreed and I can vividly remember every hole and the score that she got. Instead she's like "no I had a 4" when she had a 5. The Mercyhurst coach came over and was like "you didn't have her card so you probably heard wrong." One of my teammates said Alex is known for cheating and I know I wasn't wrong.

To add insult to injury she just won the scorecard playoff for 7th. I'm almost went off. I was shaking. I was so mad there was steam coming out of my ears. My coach talked to the director and the Mercyhurst coach and they didn't do anything about it.

My mom says I should write an email to the Mercyhurst Prep principal and see what that can do. Probably nothing.

So pissed right now.

Natalie, you will run into folks who can't help themselves but cheat. Don't let it get to you at all. Your mom is right though. Write the email even if nothing happens. There is only so many times one can get away with lying.

We had a mega match at the course I play a little all summer. I shot even par for the first time ever and won by five, and our team won first in the mega match as well. We beat Villa by 10.

Happy to be the Erie Times-News Athlete of the Week.

Also kind of annoyed that they wrote it up as 1-over when par is 33 for women at JC Martin.

Outstanding!

Congrats....My question....how did Tori take to being bested by a freshman?    I thought the last sentence of the article could have  just referenced your score w/o mentioning your teammate.

Again...super cool.

Just wanted to post here about four of my last five rounds (the one is a combined score in GHIN so that round was just nine holes).

Today I shot 77 including a back-nine 36 at Erie Golf Club. It is a two-day tournament and one girl from Canton, OH shot 70 but I am in second right now. 77 is my lowest 18-hole score ever and lowest to par on 18 holes.

My handicap is trending to 7.9. Right now it is 8.4. It started at 9.7 on August 15 and then dropped on September 1 to 8.4. I hope I can keep it going down or stay below 8 when the season ends here.

I made the paper. Downing is a long golf course for women so a 40 was not too bad. I did not hit that chip very well but my short game and putting was good that day other than that. And other than a four-putt from a long long ways away on a stupid green.

Love the finish pose!  And 77 in competition, especially given your cap not long ago, is awesome!  Keep sharing.  Nice to have some kids on the way up here and not just us oldsters on a long decline...

    • Hi,  I'm a woman, 6' tall. It's all about swing speed, what feels good, and how well you can control it. Rogues are on sale right now and they're a good driver. I assume that's your reason for choosing them. The men's Callaway Rogue driver is 45.5". The women's is 44.5". But there really is no standard. It's all about what works best for you.  I play a Callaway Great Big Bertha Epic and cut the shaft to 44.5" for control. I use a "men's" R shaft because of my swing speed which is in the low mid-90s.  If yours is in the range of 80 - 95 you can use a Regular flex shaft. If it's in the 75 - 85 mph range you can use a men's light flex shaft (they don't call it senior anymore... lol because people don't want to feel old). Women's flex is for speeds below 75.  You'll find this out when you go on a launch monitor at the golf shop. You'll do this before you buy the club, right? Make sure you're fit for the club. Here's the deal, if the 45.5" is too long, you can always have the shaft "butt cut" 1". It will make the club feel lighter to swing but won't reduce the mass of the club head at all. You do not have to add lead tape to the club head and bring up the swing weight. But before you do that I'd wrap some electrical tape around the butt end of the grip about 1/8" thick with the bottom of that 1" down from the end of the grip. Then take it to the range, maybe play a practice round or two with it and see if you like that. If you liked it better longer, it's easy to remove the tape. 
    • This isn't poor etiquette. It's common sense. The only time this is an issue is if you strike when someone else finally decides to strike at that same moment after 30 practice swings. Then it's your fault for sure
    • Most golfers select a SW for the bunker conditions they face most often. Then, you can make adjustments for the odd course you play. If you normally have firm sand and play a course with soft sand, you can still get it out if you have good technique - you may not get it as close. It's about trade-offs. Not that many amateur players have a second SW with different bounce.
    • In high school I learned with the interlocking grip which was never comfortable for me.  Years later after reading Hogan I switched to the overlapping grip.  This took a year or two before I was comfortable, but still felt better for me. My hands are about the same size as "The Golden Bear's" which is average to small.   As I got older, I wasn't comfortable again so about 10-15 years ago I switched to the ten finger grip. Now in my mid-60's, this is very comfortable for me. Each change took a year or two before it felt natural.  Enjoy the progress of your adjustments.  There are other changes too as we get older, strengths, injuries, flexibility, aggressiveness, etc that require us to make modifications in how we play this great game. 
    • ??? A local high school coach who was once a 5 index golfer would say that. I hope that was some sort of typo or something.
