Finally broke into the 70's!!!

Recommended Posts

Rewster66    1

Yesterday I finally broke into the 70's for the first time since picking up golf. I started golfing May 29th 2012 so it nearly took me 2 yrs. and 2 months.

Played at Twins Silos in Lavelette WV and shot a 79 on a Par 72 course. I have to attribute the major part of my breakthrough to hitting every single fairway (a first for me), thanks to the new 9.5 Ping i20 that I picked up the day before. I had been gaming a TaylorMade SuperTri 10.5 83 TP shaft and really liked it but for some reason  I would take "spells" that I couldn't find the fairway with it.

The rest of the credit goes to me changing to a Ping Craz-E putter from a Odyssey 2 Ball. I dropped a decent amount of good putts with the Craz-e.

It goes without saying that I am really happy, but at the same time realistic that I just had one of the ''good days" when everything came together.

God Bless!!! Ray

Just a 'Good Day' huh?   remember that feeling, duplicate it, especially those tee shots and you'll start getting more and more of those 'good days'.  and it'll be a fun season for sure

congrats,,,, even if you do use the phrase 'gaming'....   ; )

Most impressive was hitting all fairways. I have never done that. Isn't the Ping Craz-E putter several years old? Haven't seen one of those in many years.

I had never hit all the fairways either until then..., will probably never happen again...., lol

The Ping Craz-E putter is several years old but I got it from a the Course Manager that had it for several years. He told me it was a freebie from a vendor and that he had never used it. I actually really like the thing....., for now......

God Bless!!! Ray

wow, good for you! 2 years into it... that's some incredible progress... I started around the same time as you. Hopefully I'll join you soon enough. But all the stars would have to align perfectly for that to happen... the golf gods surely are not that giving :)

Thanks divot dave, I am fortunate to have a 2nd home right next to the course and I play there for free all that I want, so I get all the practice I can stand. Everyone tells me I picked the game up very quickly, but for me it doesn't feel like it. I've played competitive sports all my life and never thought it was too big of a challenge but golf has humbled me in every way imaginable. I feel like I should be doing way better than I am especially considering all the time and effort I've been putting into the game......, but I guess that is why I love more than anything I've ever done..., lol

God Bless!!! Ray

Yesterday I finally broke into the 70's for the first time since picking up golf. I started golfing May 29th 2012 so it nearly took me 2 yrs. and 2 months.

Congratulation! Hopefully this is the first of many sub-80 rounds.

I can still remember my first 79, golfing with my best friend, at a local municipal course 46 years ago.

You might want to keep the ball that you used on the last hole and put on the date, score and venue with a marker. Then store away the ball and bring it out to show your grandchildren some day.  (I wish I would have done that.)

Congrats, man. You started playing just over a month before I did. I'm looking forward to breaking 80 myself. Enjoy it!!
