http://gamegolf.com/round/252912 Only got nine in today but it was one of my better rounds so far. Two three putts. The round could have easily been much better.

Played better. I had one bad hole because of a lost ball. Damn ball got eaten up by very soft ground. If you walked around it was slosh slosh slosh. No golf ball to be found in the middle of some light tree area.

Swing is feeling better. Putting still sucks. I missed a few inside 5 feet. The short game isn't nearly sharp enough.

Much better round today, moderate winds, tough greens (very hard and bouncy, hardly any grass).

76 on a short and easy course. I was hitting it great off the tee but there were so many dead patches in the fairways I never really got a good lie. Game Golf also went a little wonky on me with some of the tags, kind of strange because I would think it would track better on my walking rounds.

Real windy out there today.  Hit my 5 and 6 irons well.  Hit my mid and short irons well.  My driver and woods were atrociously bad and my putting was not the best but not the worst.

All that said, two balls lost on a windy day isn't the worst thing in the world.

Played a round with the local pro on the number 2 course in Europe. Scored a 93 from the back tees, was pretty happy with it (was in the buffer for my handicap). Greens were a bit bumpy, but very fast, and some wind (longest vs shortest drive was >50m). The course is simply amazing.

Hit the driver great all day but was thinning my approaches all over the front nine, stumbling out with 44. But I battled through and made the adjustment on the back nine for an even par 36. Actually had a chance to break 80 but my approach on 17 clipped a lone branch costing me a bogey.

Had about a 30 MPH wind out of the SSW or so. Wet fairways. That's why I hit 220-yard 6-irons and 151-yard 7-irons. :)

But hey, it was 75° or so! And I took advantage of the soft conditions a few times in the short game to par eight holes (we passed a group and skipped the fifth). Front nine, blue tees, Whispering Woods Golf Club. LCP.

Just absolutely horrible.

Driver: B-

Irons: F (No greens in regulation, 4 nGIR)

Short game: Dr. Jekyl / Mr. Hyde, 50% scrambling. I took an extra 8-10 strokes playing ping pong across the green. Just out right bladed 7-8 short pitch shots. Just couldn't turn at all and flipped the crap out of the club.

Putting: B+, actually putted really really well tonight. Made some clutch 5-10 foot putts. I was pretty solid on short putts for once.

Just a very strange round. I might blame my short game on my left leg. My IT Band on the side of my leg tightened up a lot and it was pretty painful tonight. Maybe I couldn't make a basic pivot on short shots.

Besides that my irons sucked. Just not solid at all on half and quarter wedge shots. I fatted a PW on a par 3. I hooked a 7 iron on a par 5. I thinned a 52 degree wedge. hooked a 9 iron trying to hit one easy into the wind.

Just ugly.

I like the grading system of oneself that you did, @saevel25 , so I'll do it, too.

Teeshots = F: Whether with the driver or 3W, I hooked everything.  Driver was a distance low of 176 yards to distance high of 268.  Lot of low line drives.  I'm not lifting the ball up at all.  Hit 3W off the tee once and hooked that, too.  Two penalty strokes off the tee just bad bad bad.

Approach shots = A- : Irons were pretty much on all day.  Good distance control, was making solid contact, and didn't duff any shots.  It was a bit windy out there but I adjusted to it.  My misses were to right.

Short game = D: The only positive here was chipping in for par on the 1st hole.  Otherwise, I had two duffs and hit one way to the right that might have hit the hosel.  Didn't feel confident at all.

Putting = C-: Didn't miss any putts within 3 feet which is good.  1.67 putts per hole,  Didn't make anything spectacular.  Had two 3 putts and three 1 putts.

Positives: Had my first birdie of the year and as I mentioned, chipped in for par on the 1st hole (first time I've done that).

Negatives: Tee shots and short game turned what could have been a good round into an atrocious one.

Driving was terrible but was still pretty sick from sinus infection. Started antibiotics the day before so I felt kind of strange, weak even. Funny thing was best GIR day in a while.

One of my favorite courses in SoCal, The Palms Golf Club. Love the desert, ball goes farther ;-)

Was definitely feeling it today, a quick nine holes after work and I nearly hit every green. First time I broke par at this course, it is a real doozy from the back tees 75.0/139 rating

Had a few good drives last night, but still quite a few mishits. Can't figure out how I hit a 7i 191 over the fence on 13. Thankfully I put my next shot from tee to 5'. Unfortunately missed the bogey putt.

Wasn't too bad of a round.  The course was in bad shape after being trampled by tourists and snowbirds for the past 6 months.  My brother came down from Pittsburgh and we got my son to join us, so it was very cool!

    • So I've really been working on getting into a "posted-up" position at impact, as I'm hoping it will ensure that my weight and body is in good position to strike the ball more consistently. I've nearly eliminated my dreadful hook with my irons, and the times I do hook, I'm pretty sure it's because I pull up out of my posture and come off the ball. Most of my iron shots now are going straight or fading. I've really tried to feel weight centered, hips turning and bumping toward the target. I'm trying to get my left shoulder low on the backswing and squat into the downswing. I'm still hitting some shots thin, which I'm hoping will resolve with more practice. My woods and hybrids, however, I still have this problem where I'm just spraying it all over. Upon closer inspection with video, I can definitely see I'm pulling up with the driver instead of getting deeper into a squat. I'm hoping for some feedback just to see if I'm on the right track here. I've never looked this good as far as getting my weight back to the left and straightening out the left leg, but I still need to work on getting my hands more in front of the ball and still work more on the "squat" so I don't come up out of my stance. Any idea why I might be pulling up (ie, some kind of compensation my body is trying to make)? I used to think that maybe I was standing to close to the ball, but it doesn't really look or feel that way.   
    • Good points, Knott. I am in the middle of this battle now, as I work on using my chipper. I've been practicing at night at a par 3 golf course, which is packed. I was fine, when there was no people around. Then some folks came up on my right. I said, to myself, oh no, don't shank it to the right, you will hurt these people (luckily I didn't hurt them, lol) and that's what I did-sending the ball to the right. I guess the remedy (hopefully) should be to focus on what I am trying to do. Say things like stick it close or play a low runner. 
    • The one about whether its mechanics or mental. Given the evidence… You should be leaning toward B, no? All I’m doing is asking you to back up your claims and reason through something.
    • What am I ducking? That JS’ issue presents to be a mental over a mechanical issue? I believe we have a lengthy thread discussing the mental game vs mechanics yes? This could be mental or he’s uncertain about his swing and is adjusting feverishly thus unable to put together four rounds. That could be considered both perhaps. You’re a professional instructor and I’m an idiot. I’m not sure what you expect me to do other than what I’ve put forward. IMO, which is equivalent to the village idiot’s opinion as it pertains to golf, JS needs to see someone other than CM to help him achieve being a contender again. 
    • Ooh I didn't realise one could get a badge! Own it, have read it several times.  Have it to hand most of the time. I also own the Pure Strile 5SK book.  Please may I have stickers? 🙂
