Assuming you meant your par on the 17th...we were "mirrored".  😉 I par'd the 15th, and had my meltdown (fortunately just a 6) on the 17th.

Oops. I meant the awkward par 5 - 12th. I sprayed one to the right and had to punch out from the trees. After an awkward 5i (I still don't know what happened because it felt pretty clean), I landed a PW over the trees to 5' and made the putt. I'll take the Texas wedge par on 17 too. 😁

Shot a 93 today at Firestone Farms with @billchao, @iacas, @klineka, @Divot Master, @CarlSpackler, @Braivo.  Course was really backed up so a 5-hour (!) round...which never helps.

Driver good overall, putting good overall, short game meh...and just a few bad shots that cost me strokes.

93 seems to be the number of the day. I lost five balls... and some shots were hit from places I didn't deserve to find my ball.

Putt poorly and short game wasn't good, but also had some really good shots. Flighted PW worked really well for me today.

Great playing with you guys yesterday. I was looking back through your rounds and now I know roughly how far some of my tee shots went (the ones in play) since my GPS/stats app wasn't working yesterday.

I made a correction to my round which added a stroke. I noticed that I broke my FW accuracy record yesterday, and when I went back through the holes to see which fairways I missed, I noticed a 275 yard drive that didn't seem right. I missed a 3W tag (that I totally hit fat trying to get home in 2). On the plus side, correcting it improved my FW accuracy even more, but I am no longer in the 93 club.

Great playing with you too. I was chatting with @Braivo about getting a match play event going between Ohioans and those from the state up north. I will start another thread on that though.

Sunday's 14 holes. It's easy to shoot in the 70s when you skip the last 4 holes. Hole #4 (par 5) may be the best hole that I've played all year. A slow group letting me through was standing there watching. Maybe I need a gallery to play good.

Played better than I felt about the round, but not by much. It doesn't help that I ended up losing a bunch of balls on the back nine; I hate playing the back worse than the front because I'll walk away from the round frustrated.

This round was quite the rollercoaster.

Was fun though, and I actually didn't play as badly as it seemed overall.  My bad shots just REALLY cost me.

Another mediocre round full of excellent and terrible ballstriking. Drove the ball poorly which was disappointing considering I hit the best drive I have ever hit on the first hole of this course to start the round off. The rest of the long game was a little weird. I hit some really good iron shots longer than expected. I think I've gained some club speed with the swing changes. I noticed it during yesterday's round, too. I'm hitting good shots longer than I'm used to and slight mis-hits go farther than I expect them to be.

Short game was excellent today. Only had trouble when I was in a tough lie, but I had a bunch of realistic chances at getting up and down. Topped it off by chipping in on 17 and hitting a flop shot on 18 from about 15' below the hole to 6'.

I putt well, too. Distance control was good today, which was important because some of my reads were awful.

I have never been so frustrated after shooting a good score. Long game was a mess. Hit pulls, pushes, topped it a few times, even popped up a drive. And then I'd hit the ball really well. Alternating between striking the ball like a 5 or striking the ball like a 25 is starting to piss me off.

Short game was good. Made better decisions regarding shot selection. Starting to get better control over everything.

I putt really well today. Everything clicked.

Nice round today with @iacas at Cranberry Highlands.  Score isn't really accurate* - played a couple lost balls in the fescue as "hazards" - but I still played pretty well.  Only 5-over* on the back 9.  

I'm enjoying my newfound distance with the driver.  No more weak fade/slices.  Putting continues to be a problem...mostly due to mental lapses where I simply don't make a good stroke at the ball.

Wow, this course is very poorly mapped. I edited it so that the shots and hole locations are accurate, but the GIR and # of putts are completely off. Thought about editing it so that those numbers would be right, but then the approach distances would be off. Not really sure it matters either way in the long run.

Played with @jamo and @boogielicious in the rain. It rained a lot. I played really well actually. Despite topping the shit out of the ball on a few drives, I still managed to shoot 82. Scott helped me fix that issue though, so hopefully that carries over to tomorrow's round. Everything was good, aside from the aforementioned tops. Short game was really good for the most part. Almost holed out the chip on #8 for par (that would have been some par). Missed a couple of short putts to start the day.

Another round with @jamo and @boogielicious. I drove the ball poorly. Striped it on the range, too.

Back tightened up around the 10th hole, had to get some Advil from Jamieson on the 12th tee. Didn't kick in until the 15th tee, so for several holes I couldn't even make a real golf swing and it wasn't pretty. Somehow I managed to birdie the 14th in that stretch and that approach shot was phenomenal. Couldn't hit out of bunkers at all today and ended up in lots of them. Putting was better today. Two-putted a few times from far away and made some mid-range putts.

My first GG round didn't turn out too well. My irons were bad and I found myself in 4 sand traps. 

Putting was good today though. I need to start a my swing thread over the holiday weekend to work through these poor swings.

    • Day 80 - Ankle is feeling better, taking some full backswings. Focusing on a steeper club at A3.
    • Day 351 Some indoor yardstick putting drill tonight. 
    • Thanks. Is it wrong if I make two assumptions? 1. The difference between a "top" and a "thin" is where on the ball the clubhead strikes it, and 2. In either case it's usually the leading edge of the club contacting the ball instead of the "sweet spot"?
    • What a round of golf today. I went to play Hillandale today (par 71, 6026 from whites), which is one of my favorite courses in the Durham area. I shot my lowest round (80) here back in July. I didn’t shoot another 80, but I did shoot 87. It was an interesting round, probably my most lopsided one in terms of nines, with nines of 48-39. On the front nine, I surprisingly hit the ball well, but once I got around 100 yards, I went to pieces. A triple bogey from 70 yards (laying two) on the par-5 second hole. A double from 120 on the sixth. Same on the eighth. Then I four-putted the ninth from 12 feet for triple, missing two three-footers in a row. I got my first GIR on the 11th and two-putted for par. Then I hit my drive so far on the twelfth that I had just a pitch shot in (330 from whites). Hit that on and barely missed my birdie putt. I played holes 13-17 at +3, then birdied 18. One interesting thing was that through twelve holes, I had hit every fairway (ten total). Then I missed three out of the last four (the other two holes were the par-3s). Putting and short game were horrible on the front (21 putts), but I redeemed myself on the back (16 putts). Starting this coming week, the team is meeting at the course to play every Wednesday afternoon at 3:00, and I feel my game is solid.
    • Fair to say I've put far too much practice in due to the lockdown situation in the UK. The mat was brand new 2 months ago 😁😁
