Got in 6 rounds in 5 days at MB Barefoot. Really enjoyed the complex. Grades: 

Driver: D- (Except for day 1 at huge fairways of Farmstead- only non Barefoot course we played) it was terrible. Had a 100 swing thoughts and couldn't stick with one.

Irons: A . Struck them well and got better with best on the last day. Had only two bad misses all day. Came through with some clutch shots. On the last day at the Dye course (tightest of the all the Barefoot courses) I chucked the driver all together and drove all the short holes with my 4-iron and did well.

Pithing B- Not terrible.. but had trouble with clean hits on rain soaked sloppy surfaces. Workable though. 

Chipping B- Nothing to write home about but also not terrible.. had a couple of complete duffs but got on the green for two putts most times.

Putting C- Welp, my love affair with poor greens pace continued. They received a massive amount of rain on Sunday and I could never get myself to hit the ball hard enough. 

All in all game is in a better place than a month ago. Shot in the 80s all 5 days which I haven't done in a well over year.

😊.. Need to find solid feel that I can sustain. Drove great day 1 and then it disappeared. 

But yeah, back to working on it.

Trying to not let right arm/wrist get bendy-hingy. Feels like a half swing and flat like a m..

Thank @iacas. Yes I will get the tilt back into it. Have been setting only driver square (irons still hooded, albeit less) so the palmy grip (yes, true) is a mental crutch till I get a bit more confidence. Keeping the left arm super soft and lightly resting on the grip to not stress the forearm injury (works fine I think).

Bit more tilt. Suitcase hold for more hand depth. Soft arms, elbows, chest, lats, full turn and go.

I messaged you a picture.

Stop worrying about depth. Get the right elbow off your ribs and (not rigid) but "straight" feeling.

Need to find a consistent feel to sustain this picture. As of now it is 'keep right arm straight' as long as possible.

Trying to ensure club is 'radiating' away from core, wrists not loading, and straight right arm feel. Everything still soft.

I know the trail hand grip is a bit palmy but not worrying about it much. I think allows me to chicken wing at impact to keep by lead forearm from being stressed. Again, hopefully not a big deal.

    • What annoys me is the Cincinnati issue. I agree that if OSU played Oregon now, OSU would win. But I also feel OSU, Alabama, Georgia and maybe OU would all humiliate Cincinnati. I wish Cincinnati would have to do more to get into a top four slot. Alabama Georgia OSU and OU makes for a better top to me than having Cincinnati lurking around waiting to get routed.
    • It looks like we came to more or less the same conclusion, then. Curious if others have thoughts. I also wonder if moving back on par 3s might make some sense. Just thinking about a hole from 75 or 150 yards. A par from 150 is the same as a birdie from 75. If the hole has little chance of a double bogey (no water, easily avoidable sand, etc.), it might make sense to move back there. Let's try some math. I looked at my GameGolf stats to come up with something approaching what's accurate for me: From 75: From fairway from 50-75 yards, I'm within 15 yards of the hole 81% of the time; from 75-100, I'm within 15 yards 73% of the time. So, just a rough estimate of what I think would happen: 15% chance at bogey, 77% chance at par, 8% chance at birdie Average score = (0.15*4) + (0.77*3) + (0.08*2) = 0.6+2.31+0.16 = 3.07 Points for the game is (0.15*0) + (0.77*75) + (0.08*150) = 0+57.75+12 = 69.75 From 150: From tee box from 125-150, I'm within 15 yards of the hole 79% of the time; from 150-175, I'm within 15 yards of the hole 58% of the time. Another rough estimate (probably a little optimistic, to be honest, but I'm not sure it changes all that much): 25% chance at bogey, 70% chance at par, 5% chance at birdie Average score = (0.25*4) + (0.7*3) + (0.05*2) = 1+2.1+0.1=3.2 Points for the game is (0.25*0) + (0.7*150) + (0.05*300) = 0+105+15 = 120 I'm assuming that the hole is unlikely to yield a double bogey. I'm not sure I can think of a hole in real life that's not on a par 3 course where that would be the case, but it looks like I might be able to get more points by going a bit further back on par 3s.  That said, I don't see a scenario where moving back on par 4s and par 5s would make sense, barring some weird lay up hole or something like that.
    • Try a Callaway dealer or Callaway themselves.
    • I assume you're in the USGA jurisdiction, so I suggest that you refer him to the USGA Handicap Rules.  1.3(i) discusses player responsibility, including the expectation that the player will enter "acceptable scores" into the system in a timely manner.  2.1 talks about what an Acceptable Score is, and defines what are Acceptable Formats, which specifically include fourball formats.  Rule 3 talks about adjusting hole scores, which specifically addresses situations where a hole isn't completed.  In sum, the Rules require fourball scores to be posted (within the USGA jurisdictions, not everywhere), and gives the player the mechanisms to do so.  It sounds to me as if the pro is using his own personal opinion to override the requirements of the Handicap Rules.
    • Sure. Umm..... for a price. 😜
