Nice round. I'm starting to think you're not really a 52 cap

Heh, beat my best round ever by 9 strokes, and best of the year by 13 strokes. Beat my worst of the year by 40 strokes hahaha.

I set a new record! ZERO GIR!!! I am on a roll!!

Though I did have 7 nGIR

Shot of the day was the PULL :scared: issue was having. Drives were; Pull draw, Pull draw, Pull Hook, Push (becaused I toed the shot big time) Draw, Pull Hook, Push, Push fade.

So yea, not good. I was just putting myself out of position on my tee shots. First 3 out of my first 4 holes I had my 2nd approach shot be, punch, unplayable, punch.

One of my worst rounds of the year.  I have not played much lately but have been practicing enough.  Just could not stop the driver from going right and could not stop the irons from moving left.  I probably hit half the trees on the course.  Hit some great pitch shots and bunker shots.  Just could not get a feel for the greens and could not buy a 4-8 foot putt all day.  Back to work on things.

Not my best effort.

I want to blame my poor putting (completely lost my stroke, can't convince myself to hit the ball hard enough). but the bigger problem was my approach shots being far more erratic than they usually are.

I probably have everyone beat that recently posted a round in sucking. I hit some pretty good chips and had a few decent holes, but overall I hit everything fat for some reason I hit the ground first on almost every shot I hit even tee shots. I have been working on weight forward for about a month and a half now, sometimes I bring it to the course, other times not, today was obviously not.

Don't be fooled ... I didn't play well today.  I played in a scramble and only recorded the holes where we used my shots.  The other holes would include some real doozies if there was something to record. ;)

Couldn't do anything well inside of 70 yards, and I got every bad break in the world, but I hit the ball pretty well for the most part.

Another terrible round with my irons. Used the 3 wood off the tee all day and did pretty well with it, drilled one for 247 yds, probably longest shot with my 3 wood I've ever hit. Really need to figure out what I'm doing with my irons and get more consistent with them.

Played Beavercreek Golf Club today. Played from the tips, a few of the tees were up, so I would say about 6850 yards. A very nice course. The greens run about a 10 Stimp. They have some good slope to them as well. I really like the course layout, some very demanding tee shots, and approach shots.

SV 3 kicked my ass again today. Especially hole number 6 when i left a ball in the greenside bunker, then duffed a short pitch shot. I just keep having these issues with duffing short pitch shots. Give me 50 yards and I am happy. Give me 5 yards off the green, and I am screwed.

I've been the opposite...short pitches and chips (<20 yards) I'm good...but anything between that and like 60 yards I've been hit or miss.

Started out pretty good, then went downhill from there. Was actually playing with the Hit and Stop drill swing (started on hole 4). Still doing it poorly.

Also remembered now why I stopped using my LW as my primary short game club. Kept sliding it under the ball.

Greens had been punched so putting was a bit of a lottery, but I still let it get to my head and leaked even more putts than conditions warranted.

Woes with Driver continued and need serious fixing. Threw in two or three 'disaster' shots. Other than that a gradual improvement with the long clubs than I've been playing of late, albeit on possibly the easiest course I play.

I forgot a shot somewhere in there, and I hit a second ball on one hole that I didn't play.

    • Sorry for the long intro/explanations... I've been Playing Golf for: 40+ yrs…not continuously unfortunately…had a cut-off 9 iron put in my hand at 6...played junior golf then on the high school team…picked it up again mid 80’s to mid 90’s (best index was about 4.5) then sporadically up to about 5 yrs back…just picked it back up seriously a few months back and have played maybe 8 times but doing lots-o-practicing…put a practice net in the garage (didn’t know balls go through wall board so easily) and taking lots of video to see what is, or isn't, happening
      My current handicap index or average score is: my best calculated index so far is 9.9
      My typical ball flight is: always been a low ball hitter…if my drives are high its because they went off the top ;) Driver, if hit well, usually 270-ish, 4 wood 240-ish
      The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is:  hitting thin (unless its miles fat)…coming up and/or not staying down-through the shot…more often now, as I’m not quite as flexible as I once was and being 6‘3“ does not help…though I don’t and never had a full “parallel at the top” back swing, even playing hardball through college coaches asked why my swing didn’t start back like everyone else, though they never complained about the outcomes. (those low inside pitches were heaven) I sometimes line up open which seems to restrict the backswing and results in thinning and/or blocking out...when I close it up seems to get better...or so I think. Been finding that if I stand too upright my upper body raises up on the backswing top then comes down at impact, often resulting in hitting fat…concerted focusing on the ball usually keeps the head movement to a minimum and really helps. Never had an official lesson…primarily dad’s mentoring. Going through lots of swing thoughts, prolly the usual stuff...most help most of the time... Here are two videos of hitting my 4 wood well...sorry if they aren't the best but plan to post better next time I’m out at the range.
      Thanks for all comments...

    • This is one thing I rarely see tackled by my Youtube lesson guys like Mark Crossfield. How much contact with the grip do you maintain with the grip in your swing?   Not so much interested in grip pressure.  We all hear of gripping too tightly and having no feel, and too loose no control. Also not talking about grips such as strong or weak.  But actually how your hands dynamically interact with the grip in the swing.     I started paying attention to this when I noticed I would sort of let the club roll in my hands on big full swings. It led me to change my cocked wrist into more of a straight wrist on takeaway and improved my swing.  After playing yesterday I noticed I still let it roll a lil bit. One swing I tried staying "connected" with the club the whole time and hit a pull. My buddy plays off a 4 handicap and the club moves quite a bit in his hands where at the end his R index finger (trail arm for a R handed golfer) almost comes off the club entirely.  I've also seen pro's where the club is literally like an extension of their hands without any movement between their hands and grip from start to finish.  I mean its all the delivery that affects your golf shots and if you have a consistent change in grip in your hands it shouldn't matter if its repeatable, right?  Or is maintaining a connected grip from start to finish something we should all strive for?  And how do you all think this changes with different types of shots from drives to chips to putts?  
    • 1/15/17: Worked on my path drill with water bottles before work this morning. Did my short swing to 1/4 swing to 1/2 swing to 3/4 swing progression with my 6-iron. Did this four or five times. Increasing my speed through each set until I got to full speed. I am getting to the point where I may only catch the bottle once or twice per session. Usually I start from the set over from short swing and do it a couple times until I'm comfortable with moving to a longer swing... Golf is hard.
    • I have a cycleops spin bike in my living room. I use it everyday. It is convenient having it at home. Got home  at 1:00 am after a 7 hour drive. Did a 30 min spin workout, showered, drank a protein shake, then went to bed. I got to sleep in.
