What'd You Shoot Today?

Started bogey, par, bogey which was standard for me, then par, par, par, par, birdie, par, for 37 ( my lowest 9 ever )

I knew I needed a birdie on the last hole, was in the first cut on the right hand side of the fairway, landed to about 20 feet, and did not hit the putt I wanted to, came out weak.

Happy with 80, but so close.

LOL, just the opposite...37-43.  Had it going until the gale winds started to blow and I forgot how to get up and down.

I was in Colorado at Skyland Country Club for a vacation, and I was a single player with a slow group in front of me.

It was the most beautiful course and view I have ever seen and it really made me happy.

Not only that since the group in front of me is slow, I managed to take a 5-10 minute break after a shot or 2.

I shot a 78 from the black tees. +2 on the front and a +4 on the back. (double bogey and 2x bogeys)

The rest are pars.

I have never felt this good playing golf before and I almost never missed my long puts.

I wonder if it's because I was so relaxed and happy and I get breaks per shot, that my swing is almost at its optimum that

I was able to score this well?

88 (45/43). Not thrilled but looking at my scorecard it could have been a lot worse. Had one triple bogey and four (4!) double bogeys, one 4-putt and two 3-putts. How in the hell I didn't flirt with 100, I have no idea. Two birdies helped I guess.

My short game has been terrible the past 3-4 rounds, lost so many strokes from inside 50 yards it's unbelievable.

47 for 9 holes.  The good: nothing worse than double bogey, a couple well-hit full sand wedges after struggling with that.  The bad: tee shots were simply miserable, even using 3W or less for all but one.

5th time playing. Played the front 9 at Lake Morey in Fairlee, VT. Shot a 57 on a par 34. I'm not happy with it and know I can do better. But I made some pretty okay shots. The really pleasing part is that I seem to have figured out the Sand Trap thing. 1) Hit the sand about an inch or two behind the ball. 2) Swing hard! 3) Follow through.  3 sand traps, 3 swings and 3 balls on the green today.

Great round today on a beautiful day!  Shot an 86 from the blues (par 71, 69.0/130) at Savannah Golf Links .  My dad didn't have quite so great a round but as he said: "I'd rather play badly on your dime than mine."

    • It’s been a while since I have posted a video. I have not had much practice time but I forced myself to get out to the range today to see what it looks like. I’ve been hitting my driver better than ever but am struggling with my irons (primary miss is fat shots). I had a bit of a regression in my scoring but do have my handicap down to an 18 and shot an 88 my last round.    looking at my video was an eye opener. I feel like some of my OTT is coming back but I still think there is some improvement from where I was. My primary focus has moved on to trying to increase my lag and feel the back of my left hand facing the target at impact. After looking at this I may go back to my original focus of trying to shallow my downswing and keeping my head more steady.    I would appreciate any feedback you all may have. Thanks!!      
    • Speaking of fast pit stops… FIA to force F1 teams to slow down their pit stops · RaceFans The FIA is to introduce new rules forcing F1 teams to slow down their rapid, two-second tyre changes during races.   "Mercedes complained about Red Bull pit stops. The current internet theory is that Red Bull personnel are anticipating wheels being fully sealed on cars rather than reacting to the sensor saying the wheel is on the car, hence why they are so fast. So the person in charge of signaling to the lollypop person is reacting before the sensor is actually “on”. I guess they’ve analyzed the reaction times by pit personnel and compared it to scientific studies on human reaction time. Explains why Red Bull is so fast, they don’t react to sensors they anticipate them. From a safety perspective makes sense why that’s a no-no."
    • Did Rahm have the option to go straight at the hole on 18? It was either option go straight at hole get birdie but big number rolling it into the water or option escape bunker away from hole, longer putt for birdie, but take water out of play.
    • Trying to feel more head centered. Also faster hands, almost feels like dropping to ground at A4. Then massive, massive giraffe whoopie and trying for flow feeling from the step drill. Huh, the second swing is almost like that keep right arm straight as possible challenge?  
    • Round Summary... Driver - Tried to keep it short. I didn't feel my arms extend behind me when I really over swing. I probably was still a bit long. Overall, not bad. Direction control was a bit off. Not use to timing it, it got better later in the round. One a few holes, I just hit driver because I wanted to when I shouldn't have. They were stupid lines with high risk and not much reward. I was out of it after taking an 8 on a par 5 (no penalty). Early on the shots were just big pushes right. Then they finally started to straighten out a bit.  Irons - For the full swing shots, pretty decent. Shorter swing feel. Then hands down sooner. Arms felt like they were never stuck behind me. Contact was good.  Distance Wedges - This is a struggle. I need to practice how far back to take the club. I think I take it back similar on each distance, but just vary turn rates and clubhead speed. This gets me in big trouble when anything gets to be around under 75% distance. I need to work on not keeping the left knee flexed so long or saggy into impact.  Pitches - Need more commitment to using some speed. To many were just lazy. This caused contact issue, mostly slightly fat. Its slightly better.  Putting - Not making anything, speed control was good. Tap ins on every hole. Contact is inconsistent, I still heel to many putts.  Ended up shooting a 44, with an 8. That 8 was because I chunked a distance wedge into the bunker. I had like no turn at all, and just bottomed the club out before the ball. The bunker had little to no sand. The club just bounced up into the ball. I swung to hard for the amount of sand. The ball just flew over the green about 5 yards. I chunked a pitch shot that was on a severe upslope. I finally got the ball onto the green and two putted.  I think I am going to start working in more of the left leg stuff. Just need to clean up impact more.
