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.

    • Day 168 Just a bit of indoor putting stuff in the morning, and a few balls off the mat after dinner, focusing on posture at address. 
    • I definitely have to get in a mental ZONE to putt well, and it is a major difference.  I can feel when I am in it, but I do not have the best focus.  So it is a challenge for me to get there and stay.  I get to the course very early whenever possible. My pre-round goals include: 1. Find that putt Nirvana. 2. Stretch my back into functioning condition (I'm missing three discs). 3. Range, then pray that I hit my drives on the front nine like I do on the range. ------------------------------------------------------- I have not been practicing putting on the practice green because, well the courses do not seem to want people to.  But there are always a few folks using the practice areas.  I wonder if them pulling the flags out and then not bothering to enforce any sort of rules reflects COVID window dressing and not any sort of genuine purpose.  My putting has not been grand since quarantine, and I would like to get on that green.
    • I have been doing quite well this season but we have decided to leave our home club. Moving to a new club tomorrow and will need to do a par challenge instead since it is a tougher course. But I am pretty sure I will at least par every hole once this season!
    • Well, after all the great posts from so many of you, the time has come for me to admit that I was right all along...and so were so many of you! We moved to AZ last year in June and I began playing with a bunch of guys from ages 70-85.  Great guys who played golf by the strict rules of the game.  At first, I shot 101 and the next week it was down to 87 and the next into the lower 80's etc.  That was from early July 2019 through early September.  And then mid-October came along and my back was simply gone.  I could no longer make a full turn (or even a half-turn) away from the ball.  The MRI's saw a bulged and herniated discs as well as the expected arthritis that we all experience as we age. Since then, it's gotten worse.  Where I could formerly hit my 6 iron over 150 yards, it now goes maybe 110 yards at most.  The money I paid to play at a rather "high-end" golf club is gone (Covid19 caused both nice restaurants and Spa areas to close) and my membership will end in early fall of this year.  Both courses are still open but with limited play and closing early in the late afternoons.  Six people have been diagnosed with the Virus and yet, the course stays open because it is considered "essential" here in AZ. My cousin is a leading Epidemiologist out of Atlanta, GA and early indications say the Virus will come back with a vengeance this fall.  I hope he is wrong!  Meanwhile, I am looking into finding an electric bicycle just to get some much-needed exercise.  Just sitting and watching Netflix is seriously getting old. I hope all of you stay well and realize what a Pandemic truly is--and of course, how our bodies just don't allow us to play golf as well as our minds think we ought to play.  HA!  Stay safe out there!

    • Day 90: Still the one armed drilled. Did some fuller swings as well. Working on getting the hips open and my right elbow and wrist more bent at impact.
