Screwed up royally this year....  Last year, I was using a golf app to track my index.  This year, I decided to renew my Golf Canada subscription, to keep it official.  The issue I have is that the app uses the gross scores, and GC uses ESC scores.  What a mess I have now, as I've been entering my gross scores into the GC site instead of the adjusted scores, 19 rounds so far.  Jeesh!!!

At least they are going to help me straighten it out, and get my index to where it's supposed to be.

On a brighter note, after six opportunities, I finally made my EAGLE on hole one at my local course.  246+/- yard three wood and an 8 foot putt.  I have been hitting the green lately from the tee, as my baby draw plays into it well, but the putting has been killing me.

It is confusing at first going from a scoring app to official.  I still use ScoreCard even though the company is no more. I enter my official with the GHIN app.

It really shouldn't affect your index much, if any. With a course hcp of 10-19, your ESC is 7 on any given hole. Unless you're the most wildly inconsistent 10 hcp in the world, you just don't have many 8's or higher to adjust down. Of those that you do have, fewer yet will be found in your low 10 of your last 20 scores. I'd be surprised if your index changes more than a tenth or two. Honestly, I wouldn't worry much about it and just post correctly going forward.

Yep, this turned out to be true.  Just got off the phone with them, and went through my scoring record.  Any scores where I could have potentially had a triple marked weren't even factored in, so yes, I was worried about nothing, ha ha.   I just wanted it to be as accurate as possible, being that's it's my official factor.  One good thing about all of it, I found out GC has a scoring app, so no more piling up scorecards and entering totals.

    • Replace the grip if you want, but a new putter won't matter (unless it makes you practice more).  There's some great putting and short game drills in chapter 9 of Every Shot Counts by Mark Broadie. His drills are also games, with scoring that measures objective skill level.   Also recommend The Putting Bible by Dave Pelz. 
    • A strange round of golf yesterday. I played from the red tees (plays just 5350 yards).  My ballstriking is not very crisp these days, but hopefully I can sort that out soon. It was a round of two halves, as usual. Front 9:  Could not hit fairways or greens at all on the front, 2/9 greens and 2/6 fairways, but still shot +2 on the front. That includes 2 shots in the bunker on hole 4, a horrible misshit that lead to a double on hole 7, topped my driver 80 yards twice and the only 2 fairways I hit were with short irons in hand. 11 putts on the front 9 says a lot about that tretch of holes.  Birdie on both par 5s on the front is allways nice.  37 shots, par 35 Back 9:  A little better ballstriking even though I hit 2 shots OB, leading to a tripple and a double, 4/7 fairway and 4/9 greens. The short game was more off here and I left a couple of chips a bit short. 17 putts is not as good as I'd like it to be. 1 threeputt, but I think I would threeputt from there more often than not, as it was a 60 foot downhill putt with a lot of break where I gave it a little to much speed. Birdie on hole 15 (short par 3) and on hole 17 was nice, and I missed a short birdieputt on, the tough par 3, 11. Had 165 yards in after a decent drive on the par 5 18, but managed the top the approach and miss the green from 90 yards after that and walk off with a bogey after also missing the 5 foot par save. 44 shots, par 37.  81 shots is not bad, but I make to many misstakes from tee, making golf a lot harder than it needs to be. I hit driver on 8 holes: 1 fairway hit (265 yards), 1 OB, hit short and low slices mostly except from the two topped 80 yard ones, avg. 240 yards today. My drives are usually 270-320 yards depending on wind and course, so my driving is not where it should be. My short game is not perfect, but it's certainly better than my hcp right now.  Playing a round at an away course today. There is a curse hanging over that course that needs to be lifted. Good luck me 😉  
    • Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.
    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.  
    • Day 68, August 1, 2021:  My backswing is still too long. I’m trying to get it shorter I look at it on film and it’s way too long, did some pitching length swing length feeling swings, so it’s probably half to three quarter length backswing.
