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

I shot a 70 once! It got dark, so we had to stop after 13 holes. :-D

Shot a +3, 39.

My first two out of my three tee shots were all heel cut shots, not sure what is causing that, probably my axis tilt at impact.

Last hole I couldn't get comfortable on the tee box. We had 15-20 mph winds all evening. The hole is a long par 4, with a dog leg left, and water that guards through the fairway. I usually aim over the trees on the left and cut the corner. Tonight the wind was blowing directly in your face if you turn the corner on your 2nd shot. There is OB left just to the right of the maintenance road. So I aimed a bit further left just to give some error. Well I hit a HUGE, and I mean HUGE slice that ended up going into the right side of the pond. So lets say the ball started left of the bunker and curved probably over 100 yards right. :no:

I am finding the swing path is getting a bit outside to in on occassion with trying to get the clubhead not inside my hands at A2. This time was BIG outside to in.

More poor play.   [URL=http://www.gamegolf.com/player/ciphernate/round/118774]http://www.gamegolf.com/player/ciphernate/round/118774[/URL]

Yeah no kidding. I played that bad once...only once...and it beat my PR by 9 strokes lol

You guys do realize is it a par 34 right?  It is the equivalent of shooting a 42.  I get that many would still love to shoot that, but the goal is to get better not worse. :-D

Nevermind...didn't realize it was only 9 holes and just saw 6 over, so I didn't think it was a bad round for you.

Yeah, not your best work lol ;-)

Effectively a two-person scramble.

I might delete the round eventually. The yardages are correct (it was windy as heck early in the day, so there are some long drives but there are some short drives too). I didn't add it to the GIR challenge I'm in, and the distances are correct. But I didn't hit ALL those shots (my drives were close).

So, I'm just posting it for S&G; right now. It'll be gone the next time I add a legit round.

Still at this point I would love to shoot +6 on 9. I'm more like +17 at 9 at this point.

My round from yesterday, effectively a two-man scramble:

-17 had two teams T1. But they had four players who contributed. :) On the bright side, we weren't last!

5 hole round from yesterday.

http://www.gamegolf.com/player/billchao/round/119509

It's just kind of how I play golf. Incidentally, the only two fairways I hit were both grossly mis-hit. First was a topped 3w on 4, second was the driver on 5 - huge push that ricocheted off a tree to the right. I yelled fore in case it punched through, but it didn't.

Played in a golf outing today.

Front Nine: two man scramble

Back Nine: two man scotch doubles (both players tee off, pick the best drive and play alternate shot in)

Shot a 33 (-3) on the front and 41 (+5) on the back.

Just really interesting going from a scramble to basically alternate shot can be a drastic change.

Tee Shots: 4 Slices, 2 Pushes, 2 Block, 5 push draws. I have no clue were the banana ball is coming from.

Irons were pretty much pull draws for half of them. Maybe 2-3 push draws.

Putting was pretty good, maybe a lot of putts inside of 15 feet. Short game was mix. 20-60 yard pitches are pretty solid. 0-20 yards is still a hit or miss. Not too horrible in contact, just hard time judging lies on a couple.

Swing is kinda in a state of limbo right now.

Round full of mis-hits, low bullet hooks, and questionable putting. In other words, just another day on the golf course.

I'm completely lost right now.

A couple rounds from this week.  FIrst one a tune up for my tournament next weekend: http://www.gamegolf.com/player/golfingdad/round/128075 where I started very slowly and then played quite well for the last 13 holes.

The second round was a leisurely vacation round with the wife tagging along as my "caddy."  Highlights are the 2-putt birdie on 3 and the OB bogey on 7. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/golfingdad/round/129784

Lots of slightly not-great shots that I got away with. Slight pull-draw on #2 (but hit solidly). Didn't hit great tee shot on #4 but it bounced across the road. Tee shot on #6 was a bit on the toe but downwind really rode it out and rolled to a few feet from the middle of the green.

Wind was out of the south, fairways soft. #8 and #9 were right into it.

Great round Erik.

Not so great for my recent round.  Have not really played for a few weeks.  even though the score was not great I did like what I was seeing for the most part with the ball flight and start lines.  The swing changes are starting to show some decent results.  Hitting it much better off the tee anyway.  Misjudged the wind on a few shots and hit it way over the greens.  Struggled with the short game and the bunkers.  Hit a few shots fat as well.

This is my round from yesterday. It got dark pretty quickly, started to drizzle on 5, and it was cold.

Didn't hit a single green, but there were far fewer grossly mis-hit balls. That's a pretty good accomplishment, considering that I haven't really hit a golf ball in over two weeks. I tried to ease up on my swing and really focus on making good contact. I think it helped.

    • My golf was an evolution the past 3 years but today I feel like I made a revolution. I finally managed to change my transition from shallow to steep to steep to shallow.  What lead the change was the backswing that I was working on last winter with my friend (the future pro 🙂 ) and the takeaway that we changed last month - I used to go to a cupped immediately and now I keep a bowed wrist throughout the backswing (or I at least try to).    And for the past week I was thinking about how to lead the downswing more with my hips to get them being open on impact, making room and thereby preventing the early extension. While I still didn’t change that part of the swing the thought helped me get to a change where I go to the top of the swing with my hands and then they start “backward” while I start the downswing with my lower body.    The result is that my ball flight immediately changed from a fade/slice pattern to a constant draw/hook. I feel like this will really help with my scoring as well as I will be able to better game plan      @iacas
    • That may be true, but the average amateur is unlikely to be better than 45% from a 140 yards.  And the pro can probably hit the same club or at worst one iron longer from the 200 yards in.  Most amateurs are hitting like an 8 iron or so from 140 and the pro can probably manage with a 7 iron from 200.  The pro is definitely better with a 7 iron than an amateur with an 8 iron. The reason the pro is better from 140 than 200 is probably because they are hitting a PW rather than say a 7 iron
    • You see this in other sports.   Anybody can coach great talent but it takes a good coach to get the best out of each and every player.
    • I may be a bit unfair to these coaches so I’ll admit that up front. But what I tend to believe is that many of these coaches that ‘got their name in the lights’ really lucked into it for the most part. They’ve taught hundreds of people before and nobody knew who they were. Now that definitely doesn’t define their level of quality. Not at all. But when a coach happens to score a player who is super talented and has the ‘it’ factor I can’t help believe that player was going to make waves regardless of his coach. Hank Haney got the majority of his notoriety from coaching Tiger. So did Sean Foley as did McCormick from Spieth. From the years of being on this thread I firmly believe Erik is every bit as good and better (Hank Haney) than these guys. I will agree that McCormick is a good coach as I’ve been told this by respectable people who are in the know. I just don’t think he’s anything so special that Spieth needs to remain with him.  At least not now. He needs renovation, not tweaking. I’d never heard of him before Spieth came to the stage and now he’s on commercials and pumps out dvd’s as an all time best instructor.  I think the talent of these golfers played a much bigger role in their success than the coaching they received from these guys. Just my opinion.
