Drive Chip& Putt 2015

9 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

So I entered my 10 year old son in the 2015 Drive Chip & Putt contest and he WON his first qualifying round!  I'm so proud of him!  He tied for 3rd in driving and chipping, then placed 2nd in putting. I was blown away when they totaled to overall scores and he placed first!

He is on the the leader board for boys 10-11 on the web site

His next qualifier is Aug 7.

Good luck to all the other little guys and girls!

I am so proud of him!!!  Top two move on to the Mid Atlantic regional and he did it!

He placed first in chipping and second overall.  Only missed first place by 7 points... his first drive was hooked

out of bounds for a zero or it would have been a 10 point drive.

Congratulations.

We went to the sub-regional and Natalie took second in driving and second in putting. She finished fourth overall, missing third by two and second by 11.

Disappointingly she could have made up all of those points on the big breaking 30-footer if she had paid attention and aimed where she knew. She blanked and played very little break, scoring only one point. Oh well. We had fun. :)

We went to the final qualifier on Saturday and had a great time at River Bend Country Club.

Unfortunately Collin didn't have a great day and placed 6th.  A long putt for a score of 1 and

a drive out of bounds for a 0 sealed it.   The winner was in his pairing and scored a 136.  They

drove 6 hours from South Carolina to Virginia.   Congratulations to them!

We will be back next year!

    • Thanks, makes perfect sense to me as it has been what I have worked on the past couple of months, and up until yesterday it wasn't something I had to really think about during the swing.  I'll hit the range sometime this week, hopefully it was just a bad day. And yes, been planning to get a My Swing Thread going, but was hoping to get back to where I felt my swing was late last year first. But that may not happen, so guess I'll try to get some swings recorded soon.
    • more offset if for the ones who can't close the face. for me i want less offset so i don't have to worry my ball hooking when i close the face. a lot of AM golfers aren't worry about trying to spin the ball with a GI irons, they are more into trying to smoke the ball as far as they can. and the most forgiveness they can get. but their are some guys who can spin the ball with a GI because they are using a softer ball which helps a lot and knows how to spin the ball. i think it's easier to hit a ball with a small face then a big face
    • I don't really feel that. I'm not working on anything that has to do with the elbow "dropping" at all. If anything I feel it driving outward (toward the ball) more as it comes down naturally. You should start a Member Swing thread of your own. Your elbow probably gets stuck around behind you too much. I'm exaggerating some things to help with my piece right now. It exits lower when I swing normally (even on a draw).
    • @iacas  two quick questions for you. On your transition into the downswing, what is your feel for when the club/hands/right arm/elbow drops?  I ask this because I had a horrific round yesterday, once I got to the top of my swing I was totally clueless, even went back to the range a few hours later, had no issues with wedges, but everything else stayed horrific.  I understand the lower body initiates the downswing, but for me it is more of a parallel move with my lower slide/rotation and my right elbow dropping.  I tried what I would call my normal swing and it just wasn't working, then I tried to only shift my lower body first, then tried the feeling of pulling my hands down and then out.  Regardless of what I tried it just didn't work, just lost all feelings when I got to the top.  Not looking for a magic pill here, just curious if you have a certain feel at this point in your swing. On your follow through, I notice your left arm stays high (inline with your shoulder line).  Mine is much lower when I finish my follow through, sometimes probably under my shoulder line. Is this just a difference in swings or is there a common fault that you see that may cause a lower follow through? Thanks!
