After posting a 79 yesterday, today i shoot a 77. Had a chance for eagle on 16 but missed. No real highlights this round, just solid play. Only 3 putted once. Driving was fantastic hitting 10/13 fairways. i think i had 8 GIR's though. I am although impressed with my finish and not folding under pressure finishing with birdie,par,par.

91. Good on the front (34 after 8) until I topped my drive on 9, hit a 3 wood into the trees, and then proceeded to hit the same damn tree three times trying to punch out on my way to a snowman. Back was just...bad. I was in the wrong fairway more often than the right fairway. I'd drive a ball 250 out, and 250 to the side. Solid iron play, especially sticking it close out of bad lies (and wrong fairways). Three putted 4 times (all of which were GIR's, so that's friggen' annoying...), but thank God for no four putts. (36 putts) Came back in a much less satisfying 49...ugh.

Bad holes:

#9. Hit the same tree three times. Got an 8.
#13. Boom. Shank off the tee. Second shot, a PW, flew the green. Chili-dipped the next one. Triple bogey 6.
#17. Banana ball 200 yards right, onto #11 of another course. Proceeded to dub my way up the fairway, another 8.

39 with a TON of wasted shots.

I had 3 birdie putts under 5 feet and only made 1 of them.

That basically sums up my round.

88. Hit 9 GIR and had 5 3-putts. New gap wedge did me wrong and my decision to change putters last night wasn't a good one.

I shot a dismal 101, 52-49, after consistently being able to break 90 I have not been able to break 100 for my last 3 rounds. My slight slice off the tee has turned into a violent hook, I think I lost 4 balls off the tee in a row. Ah well, still in love with the game!

82

I shot 39-43.

I left a lot of birdies out there today. I don't normally shoot for birdies, I take them as they come but today they were begging to be taken. I just didn't convert on those 7 foot putts. I should have played the par 5's in -4. Instead, I played them even.

I did go on a par binge after getting up and down from 70 yards. I holed a 20 foot putt that broke twice (mostly luck) to start a run of 7 straight pars.


My mental game was weak today. I am the first one out at my club most of the time and every hole seems to be crawling with maintenance workers. I don't know what they did yesterday on the closed day but they sure cut a hell of a lot of grass today. They drove me nuts.

I shot an 86, with dismal putting. My ball striking was awesome though, and especially my driver - wow! My driver was really working today, dang! lol...

But all in all, 86 is one of my lower scores this year...It was on a respectable 6500 yard course, so I was very happy overall with my play.

I shot 38 and my putting was slightly better than yesterday but my Iron ball striking was quite terrible.

For example on the 5th hole I was 165 out in the center of the fairway on a par-5 after my drive and managed to make bogey after hooking my 8-Iron into a greenside lake.

fairly satisfied with my 45-40 at The Quarry. 7015 yards, slope of 145. just unbearable. I felt like I escaped with an 85. never again will I play a course with a slope over 135

Played Tidewater and the surf club this previous week down in Myrtle Beach, SC. I did my usual "blow up" when i get in superhot weather and shot horribly. Did play Tidewater from the tips which is a pretty tough course from there. Lots of fun as well if any of you ever get the chance, its an incredible course.

Finally had a good week in my league (9 holes, par 34). Shot 36. Actually drove very poorly, but my short game was solid and I dropped a few nice putts.

Nothing in the swing is done at the expense of balance.

Shot an 85 this morning, which moved my (running) handicap to 18.8. I looked back at my statistics for the last couple of years and found that my handicap was 26.4 on 7/2/06. I've improved my handicap by almost 29% in 1 year! My goal at the beginning of this season was to get to 18 (be a "bogey golfer") but I wasn't sure that it would really happen. I'm hitting many more GIR and when I miss, I'm not missing by as much. I'm also not getting myself into trouble as often. I'm losing some strokes right now because I'm experimenting with a ball change and my putting distance is suffering (I'm not consistently around the hole with my first putt. I leave too many way short or way long).

43 on a 9 holer. Pretty good considering I'm still struggling with driving accuracy.

I hit no fairways today. Period. Thankfully I had solid iron play (hit 4 GIR's despite no fairways) which allowed me to get out of some incredibly bad lies, especially in, under, and around trees. God, I hate trees. Golf would be so much better if the only trees on the course were next to the tee box so you could sit in the shade waiting to tee off. The only mishit iron shot I can remember today was a toed 3 iron off #9 tee.

Chipping was so-so, and my putting is getting there. My lag putting still sucks, but I'm getting the ball in the hole pretty regularly within five feet nowadays. Three-jacked only twice, was pretty proud of that.

Even par 72 from the back tees at Angeles National. Scorecard attached below...

Super strong start. Super dumb finish trying to beat the setting sun. Number 10 was kinda lame too. Took an unplayable then proceeded to three putt. HOORAY!

Hole of the day: 15, Second hardest hole on the course. Solid drive straight into the wind, solid 4 iron to 8 feet, solid putt right in the jar.

Shot of the day: The previous 4 iron.

Feel good shot of the day: 3 iron from 225 to pin high on 8. Missed the eagle putt, but not by much.

    • What precedent? You keep saying this but you haven’t cited examples of where a rival league won a suit against a major league for anti-trust in the US. Name the sport, the leagues involved and cite the lawsuit. Right now your devils advocacy seems just like arguing for argument sake. But you haven’t provided any concrete facts just your disdain for the PGAT.  
    • We've got LIV vs PGA Tour match play on right now and its getting intense
    • Lol I'm not even going to argue with someone who asks about another's profession as some weird condescending ego stroke. Its incredibly clear that there is prior precedent for sports leagues and anti trust violations in this exact type of situation. The density it takes to be this sure of yourself about the righteousness of the PGA Tour here is incredible. Its not black and white.
    • Day 26: 8/12/2022 I got some really good practice in today. Went to the range. Hit about 50 balls with my 6-iron. (Block Practice) How I did it was 5 balls at a time. Focusing entirely on one of three things.  Five balls focusing on a movement I'm trying to get right with my hips. Slow mo first. A little faster second. Then do it full speed with no ball. Then full speed with a ball.  The next five balls. Focused on a move I'm trying to get right in my backswing. Again, slow mo, a little faster, full speed no ball, and then full speed with a ball.  The next five balls. Focused on my hand path. Same as above. Slow mo, a little faster, full speed, then hit a ball.  Rinse and repeat.  Then I hit ten balls with the driver. I'm trying to improve my driver consistency. So, what I did was focus on a pre-shot routine and my set up. Tried to hit all 10 into an imaginary fairway.  Then I went over to the putting green and after warming up I did @iacas's "Makeable Putts Game". I scored 13 points... Not sure if that's good or bad. But I know I can do better.  Lastly, since I also want to improve my wedge play, I went over to the short game area and hit 36 different pitch shots from about 20 to about 70 yards. (Random Practice?)  I really wish I had time every day to do the practice I did today. I feel like everything I worked on are important things that can help me improve.
