Stop posting (scores to GHIN). :-)

I wasn't allowed on that one because it was solo.  The tourney round counted though...+2.4.  Ouch!

Finally broke 90 today:

I did it in a round where I didn't hit the ball particularly well.  Five of my drives were weak high push-slices; I just wasn't getting the face squared up.  I had a few mishit irons, and a few three-putts.  I missed an 18" putt (!) for an 88.

I avoided any hazards or big mistakes, though...I was getting the ball up near the greens in regulation, and I was pitching the ball well on those short greenside shots.

My best hole - almost drove the green on a short, uphill par-4, and got up and down for birdie:

As a Cleveland sports fan, that movie struck a chord.  Lou Brown has some great one liners in that movie.

Much better today and came very close to going round in level par. Frustratingly, I needed the a birdie on the 9th hole and came really close to driving the green - the ball pitched in the top of the upslope and rolled down into a nasty lie - actually did well to make the four. The work on the full swing is making a huge difference; contact was excellent today and nothing more than a 10 yard fade with the driver - the wind really buffeted the drive leading to the bogey on 2. Additionally, the time I'm putting in with the wedge game around the green is making an impact and I'm starting to visualise the different trajectories and landing spots much better. 

I plan to play this course more often to get used to going low - I'm not great at it on the full course and whilst this one is tighter in places, it suits my game more.

The biggest highlight was the 7th hole because it was one of those rare times when you feel like a pro.  Every shot went exactly as envisioned.  My best drive of the day, right down the center of the fairway, followed by a sand wedge from about 110.  The green slopes back to front and I was playing a B330S, which was checking up a lot, so I made it a point to hit that SW as hard as I could.  Pitch mark was 6 yards beyond the hole, ball ended up 6 yards short of the hole.  From about 25', uphill and with 12" of break to the left, I hit it perfectly and it died into the side of the hole on its last half revolution.

Don't those shots just give you such an adrenaline boost? I know golf isn't "intense" like other sports but it's hard not to feel like you're riding clouds when your shots are so perfect. Great job!

Had a satisfactory round today. Was able to make some GIRs and a few up and downs. I am still struggling with slicing my driver and am only using it on wide fairways. I also noticed I was hitting my irons with an open club face that destroyed my accuracy. Still, I was able to recover most of my bad shots and was only 4 shots from my personal 9-hole best!

70 at a course on a scouting trip that @NatalieB hopes to play in Regionals for her first year of high school golf.

Tiny greens, but when I wasn't hitting the G400 out of the heel, it was going FAR. Had 100 yards into almost every par four it felt like.

I think I finally kicked the overdraw (famous last words). Played primarily a fade today, with only a couple of misses left. Two were badly pulled on the first hole which I'm ignoring as anomalies. The others seemed like just face or alignment errors (one came after I pushed a ball hard right and took S&D, so over-corrected). I also firmed up my left hand grip after that push with the intention of stabilizing the wrist at A4 and it seemed to work; last 3 holes I was hitting the ball on a string.

Not a perfect ballstriking day but overall I am pleased. I really liked the feeling of confidence I have knowing that I was only missing in one direction, and my good shots weren't curving much. Could have scored a lot better, too, if I didn't put myself in some gnarly lies and behind (or directly underneath) trees. Short game wasn't the greatest today and I left myself too far from the hole most of the day for easy 1-putts.

G400 is awesome. I also put my old 50° Wilson PW back in to replace my Cleveland 52° GW when I noticed the data from Game Golf showed the Wilson filled the exact yardage gap I needed filled. Used it a bunch today and hit it a couple of times to a yardage I wasn't really hitting with the Cleveland. Not really sure why I swapped them to begin with but I think this time it's staying.

I think I need to re-read LSW:

No part of my driver shot zone is in the fairway on that line (the rough slopes severely back to the water, so it was almost all carry).  I had just made a 9 (!) on the last hole, so I didn't really give a crap about strategy and I just fired at the bunker.

My worst decision of the day turned into my best drive of the day.

Nice job on the short game and putting.

Thanks.  The big strokes lost was holes 6 and 17;  hole 6, bunker in two but hit it so poorly out it was unplayable *and then* I stubbed a chip.  Hole 17, I hooked my approach shot super badly and ended up in the [redacted] -- literally, that's what I think was over there.  First pitch hit a guard railing near a sewer line and bounced back.  Second pitch hit a tree, third was on the green.  Give me those two holes to play again and I bet I make the cut.  But I'm sure others in the contest have 1-2 holes they would like to try again too.

Had my best 9 hole par 29 today. It's only my 5th game played.  41.  Had to use my nasty driver twice today and I was more surprised than anyone, it went where I wanted it to. Now my putting needs work, which drew me down....  

It was a good day
