For some reason GAME Golf mixed up the 3rd and 9th hole. Played with my son today, hit my irons well, driver was ok. Ball was going a little bit farther due to the heat. Seeing some nice progress with what I'm working on, only hit one push shot on #9 (listed as the 3rd hole).

For some reason GG split my round into two rounds of 9 instead of 18, maybe because the course i played has 27 holes instead of 18 so it didn't know what to do. Anyway its been about a month since I played and have only been working on getting my weight forward at impact and steady head I am starting to see a difference in my shots, not more slicing shots are going straight or slight draw.

+4 40

Driving: Mix bag. Had maybe 3 good drivers out of 5 attempts.
Irons: same thing, just a mix result. Trying to work on that backswing piece. I am trying to not let my head fall back in the downswing. Some shots, I was too concerned with the head movement and I forgot to set my axis tilt for my upper body. Then I would swing and just pull draw the ball left. Not a snap hook though.

Putting was bad. Just kept leaving everything short. Spent about 30 minutes on the practice green afterwards, working on 5 foot putts out to 15 foot putts. I was making a good amount of them. So hopefully I can stop putting bad now.

Putting was bad.

Doesn't necessarily look that way from the card. Unless you are sticking approach shots inside 15' you shouldn't expect too many 1 putts. If anything you are losing strokes by not getting up and down when you miss the green and that likely by not getting close enough to give yourself a chance.

Of course, if you are stuffing everything to 5' and can't make the putts, that's a different story altogether.

Its hard to tell from game golf on distance to the hole on the first putt. Its pretty decent, but you can still be off 3-5 feet. Trying to get the little shot icon to sit exactly were your ball was is very tedious.

Mostly when I say putting is bad, it was the quality of the putting stroke. I am just easing up on everything, and catching them a bit too low on the putter face. I heel way too many left to right breaking putts as well. I need to really work on that.

So not really how many I made. If I struck every putt well, and started them on my line, and they didn't drop. I wouldn't be as upset about it, unless I was missing a lot of putts inside of 5 feet. If they were all 15+ foot putts, sometimes they just don't drop. I wasn't even given any a chance.

Barf ... http://www.gamegolf.com/player/golfingdad/round/105337

Today was forgettable.  I hit a few horrendous shots.  Back to back long irons on 9 and 10 where I hit it so far near the end of the toe that I nearly missed the ball.  Did the same thing with a handful of tee shots with either a 3 wood or hybrid.  Also had a shank (second shot on 16).

Yuck.  Just ... yuck.

That's why I didn't really bother with it. I just approximated where the pin was and and where my putts began. I didn't think it was all that important to get exactly right.

Had trouble off the tee today and missed 5 or 6 puts by a few inches from around 12 feet. If I can clean up my short game I could probably be scoring in the high 80's low 90's.

Ball rolled, on average, -3 inches each time today. One time I hit the cart path. This one time:

Very hilly course. Lots of uphill and downhill tee shots.

Played a new course today hit a 95 best round I've had all year. Played the back 9 first then the front this course was like jekyl and hide. Back 9 was pretty hard especially not playing it before and playing as a single, front 9 was wide open and flat.

Missed some opportunities for birdies, especially on the 9th hole, hit it to about 5 feet from the hole from 100yds out and missed the birdie putt by about an 1/4". The above hole was probably the best tee shot I've had with my 3 wood, I played with it all day because I'm just not hitting my driver well, I was with in 100yds to the green off the tee.

Hit 2 good drives and maybe 4 or 5 other ok tee shots, otherwise I was terrible off the tee.  Mixed in a couple topped shots for good measure.  Otherwise played really well :-P

Struggled through some swing changes today.

Birdied a long par four that I have not birdied yet so that was my best hole by far.   Hit probably my longest drive of the year.  The stars must have aligned.

My 25+ foot putting is still pretty bad, especially from over 30 feet. Scrambling is still bad.

Ended up with 10 GIR and I think about 14 nGIR.

Had a pretty solid round overall.  Left a few shots out there - lost a ball on 13 that led to a double, chunked a pitch and then 3-putted on the next hole which led to an inexcusable bogey - however, overall I played pretty decent.  The highlight for me was a pair of deuces on the 2nd and 11th holes.  Sort of like "twin" par 3's of similar distances right next to each other, I don't think I've even parred them both in the same round.

Alright... I have waited long enough to post my round here. This past weekend we had our Member Guest at my home club. Thursday is a two man scramble, Friday a best ball, and Saturday is a Chapman scotch. My partner and I did very well. This is from the Friday best ball round. I played very well. My driver was behaving which makes playing golf much easier.

I wanted to outline 2 holes. One is the second hole. This is short (by yardage) par 4 but it is mostly dead uphill. The second shot you cannot see the green. There is a extra tall flagstick and you can only see that on the left hand side of the fairway. I average about a 4.6 on this hole. So in general I struggle with this hole. I did not have a great lie in the left rough so I punched a 9 iron up the hill. I got onto the green and had a 3 foot birdie putt.

The second hole to notice was the 15th. This is another short par 4 by yardage but the second hole is dead uphill. I struggle with this hole and generally am around 4.7. I hit a great drive, followed by a wedge up the hill and made about a 12 footer. The group we were playing with (at the time our closet competitor in our flight) was inside me and missed. Another good score on a tough hole.

Not a whole lot of solid shots. Sliced everything. Even my 7 iron lol. Wasn't playing for score, just working on the swing at the course. Still scored alright for me, but this is my home course.

    • Well done, you should go to the 85+ one next year.
    • Yep. https://www.mgagolf.org/sites/default/files/Rules Quiz Answers 3-19_0.pdf Quite a poor job by my association.
    • The point is there really is a minimal amount that can be done to ‘prevent’ back issues that many if not most people experience simply by being humans. The golf swing is one of many, many reasons one can develop issues. And some people are more prone to problems than others. The golfers on tour who haven’t had problems don’t have a secret. They don’t have better posture. They’re simply luckier. Obviously certain movements can aggravate or accelerate back issues. But again people will progress at different time frames. Yes it’s nice to hear biomechanics/spine experts. I agree. But unless it’s a matter of extremely poor posture there isn’t a lot that can be done to make the golf swing ‘easier’ on the spine aside from an essentially ineffective swing. Just my 2 cents.
    • I'm new to metal-analysis and newish to golf and I'm sorry if this was s stupid question, like if these irons are somehow clearly cast, to the introductory-trained eye (like by looking at the writing formed into it rather than stamped), but I was confused because the metal seemed to have that same, stretchy-looking grain like the forged Haigs I have... (?) I did try looking up the answer but cannot find it anywhere. I suppose I'd guess "cast" if I had to for these irons, because of the way the logo looks, and because there are more premium versions/sets of Citations? I should probably preface most emails with the fact that I'm particularly into vintage things more than my score in some games (although I do have a relatively modern set for other occasions). I love my Northwestern irons, though, for example. When I get a good shot they are amazing to me. God as my witness, you have my word I'm not just crowd-sourcing y'all in a petty way trying to sell these irons or anything I post online or something, trying to get easy specs from you guys because I'm a seller. I do not sell golf equipment. I used to R&D and make archery equipment out of wood and composites. I just really, really like vintage things and have storage space and like to plan for the future, whether I pass them on over time to someone special or keep them (and knowing more about them helps). I dig before I ask. These came with, not persimmon, but unreal-feeling laminate woods I unexpectedly fell in love with and bought some softer balls for. While persimmon was and is a higher-brow thing, and while my Northwestern laminates feel crummy (love the NW irons tho), the Powerbilt laminate woods that came with this set are more rewarding to hit than some of my more modern steel ones from the late 90's and early 2000's. They have a thick metal sole and a hefty metal weight at the back, and I'd think would give some pure persimmon woods a run for their money. I also feel like it's less likely for the laminated Citation woods to form a crack in the hosel than aged, solid persimmon, and that comes from not only seeing lots of cracks in woods, but because -- even though I'm newer to golf, I am not new at all to hand-making performance sporting goods that put up with immense stress (bows and arrows).  At first I was disappointed when I showed up with $50 for this set of Citation irons with 4 woods, because I thought surely the 3 Citation woods were solid persimmon, but to my surprise they weren't (the picture deceived me). But after swinging these relatively highly engineered, latter-day laminate PB Citation woods, on my property, I am really glad I bought them anyway and intend on restoring them (some moisture got under the finish and tarnished them, and I am experienced in finishing and re-finishing archery equipment...usually by using epoxy clear coat that cures best at 105-115F or so, always superior to cold-cure urethanes and so forth in archery, way more scratch and gouge and ding-resistant, but I'll do a golf-spin on my R&D... while they were R&D'd plenty leading up until their day, there's always room for experimentation in customizing the way we refinish well-aged sporting goods after they become old, which they weren't when they were made.   🙂  Maybe heat-cured archery bow epoxy will be too hard and crack more than a cold-cure acrylic or urethane etc., but I bought a handful of cheap laminate woods nobody wanted to experiment with re: refurbishing coatings. If I can re-strengthen old, dried-out wood while I refurbish how it looks, I'd rather do it than just stay true to the original materials (esp. since I'd either keep them or gift them to friends instead of claiming a purist restoration). But I digress regarding my question about these irons. I'm thinking people are passing the thread by thinking I shouldn't bother people with the question until I can better identify obvious things? I did try looking it up, but the records I find are too ambiguous and do not delve into the differences between Citation, Citation Levelume (which people advertize as forged and which are even more commonly sold), etc. Thanks, Jeff
    • Actually, at first I thought the same thing, but it turns out there was another video on that page that auto-played along with the main video.  There wasn't any background music in the main video.
