first time out on Sat. March 24 this year and shot a 99 while trying out two new clubs and three different balls (I think the Srixon Q-star is my ball for the year).

so far my rounds this year have gone 100, 94, 94. Shot a 90 today in the worst weather I've played in so far this year; 25 mph winds and 40* (actual air temp). 3, 3 putts away from an 87.

I started playing for the first time in 2 years with new clubs (AP1's) and no driver. My first round was a 106 and my 2nd was a 98. I have since bought the R11 driver and hoping to break 95 next time!

At Myrtle Beach for the week and shot a 105 on the first course I played.

I actually hit the ball decently and had two birdies but I lost about 10-12 shots in the bunkers.  Hit into about 6 of them and it took me at least 2 shots to get out of them, and one it took me 3.  I am not use to playing from sand traps that difficult and usually have trouble getting out of the easy ones.  Guess I know what I have to work on when I get home.

Played 3 9's a couple days ago.  Shot 43,44,43.

Still struggle intermittently off the tee, and was being crazy with my fairway woods.  The 1st 18, it seemed that every fairway shot was blocked and sliced, and hit way out on the toe.  Got it straightened out near the end though.

Played on Saturday and shot a very nice (For me) 93. The frustrating part? I started keeping a seperate score for everything inside of 100 yds. I wasted 11 shots inside of 100. Seriuosly thinking about taking lessons and focusing only on short game & putting.

Played a round of golf this past weekend with couple of guys from Michigan. Course conditions were muddy and slopy due to some heavy rainfall on Friday and Saturday.  But I was please with few quality iron shots.  My pitching and putting has improved that made up for few bad shots - shot 79.

If the weather is nice like it has been in KY I am planning on working on my long irons and getting my ball flight under control - Last week I was hitting them little high, which drives me crazy specially if it is windy.

First 9 hole round I scored a bumpy 52. Developed a consistent slice and wasted 4-5 shots chipping on (mostly short), which was my strenght last season.

The positive was my ball striking is better than it ever was and my second shot put me in striking distance to the green, just wasted the opportunity.

Was a good starting round to the season, take away that 1 wasted shot per hole and I would have been mid 40's easy. Just need some early season tweaks.

Played a short par 3 course yesterday (there's a couple of Par 4's) and shot a 40 (par 29) very happy with that.

It seems like my game's going in the right direction.

If I hadn't had a disastrous 5 putt after being on the green in regulation It'd have been a lot lot better! In my defence the greens were shocking.

I hit the ball terribly today, but just kind of hung in there.  I scrambled like crazy and 1 putted several greens to shoot a respectable 38.  I holed everything inside of ten feet.........all for pars. LOL

The putts stopped dropping on the back and I was +4 through 5 holes.  then gutted out a nice par on a long par 3, and then finished birdie, birdie, birdie out of nowhere to shoot 37.  I felt like the entire round was a struggle and somehow posted a very respectable +3 75......I can dig it!!  Those kinds of rounds are very satisfying.

Played 9 holes in 20-35 mph winds. I barely reached the green with a punch 3-wood on a hole I normally hit 6i or 7i. The wind was mostly up or across in some direction. 4 over through 8 holes was pretty much the best I could have done. 5 bogies, 2 pars and 1 35-feet putt for birdie. On 18 (played back 9) I got overly ambitious a hit two drives in the water, trying to carry too much. Threw in a poor pitch, bunker shot and chip for good measure, carding a 12 on the hole. :-D Good news is that I was able to control the ball in heavy winds in every direction.

Played 9 holes a couple days ago with my uncle and his brother. Shot +9, pretty good for me though. Every hole I had a putt for par which is really unusual for me, my short irons were really letting me down though. Think if I had stayed no played the full 18 that I would have legitimately broke 90 for the first time, so excited for the next time I go out (Sunday)

I played the same bad golf tee to green as yesterday.........the putter let me down today and I turned yesterdays 75 into an 80 today.  LOL........oh well.

Played 9 holes for a 44.  7/7 fairways, 0/9 greens yet again.  I no longer know how to club myself for approach shots.  Hit 8-iron from 135 into the wind and flew it 50 yards past the stick.  Hit PW from 145 and sailed it over the green.  SW from 115 and flew the green.  Bombed some monster drives though.  I thought stack and tilt was supposed to make you good at iron play? Guess the course management game is still the same.  Anyone know of a trackman fitter in the Austin area?

Played 9 holes in 43 degrees. Wore a winter cap and winter gloves between shots so at least my head and hands stayed warm. Off to a less than stellar start with bogey's on 2,3, and 5, but came back with birdies on 8 and 9 for a +1, 37. Maybe I finished well because it had warmed up to a whoping 44 degrees,,lol!

    • I’ve hit a lot of good shots in the past week or so, but two really stand out: •In my round at Croasdaile, I was sitting two on a par 5 about 130 out, but there were some trees overhanging, so I couldn’t hit a lofted PW/9I. I opted for a punch and run with a 7I, planning to land it about ten feet short of the elevated green. I did exactly that, and my ball rolled onto the top tier where the pin was and stopped four feet out. Would’ve been a heck of a birdie, since that hole isn’t easy on a normal day, but I had a nice tap in for par.   •This was from my round yesterday. The seventh hole is a tough 180-yard par 3 from the blue tees. I let rip with a 6I, and I hit one of the purest 6I shots I’ve ever hit. It landed safely on the green and stopped pin high, about 15 feet to the left. Two putt for par and probably my best hole of the day.
    • I’ve played several times in the past week and a half, four rounds to be exact, so here we go! 5/6: Decided to play 18 holes after school, and I’m happy I did! My front nine was spectacular: two birdies and two bogeys, the rest pars for an even-par 36. One of the birdies was on the tough fifth hole after I bombed a drive and hit a wedge to six feet. That beats my personal best nine by two strokes! I started par-bogey on the back, but went +12 on the last seven holes to shoot 49 on the back for an 85 total. Still a solid number, but it was disappointing after the front.   5/8: I played a handicap match with a buddy at Croasdaile. Because of the tees we were playing and out handicap difference, I got twelve strokes, including nine in a ten-hole stretch. After five holes of the match, I was six over, and down two. But then started the stretch I mentioned above, and I took advantage, winning five holes to take a one up lead through 13. But then came the turning point of the match. I was sitting two on the par-3 14th about three feet out, and since I was getting a stroke here, I had a great chance to go two up with four to play. But then Zack chipped in, and my par putt, not for just a half, missed. All square with four to play. Because I got a stroke on two of the last four holes, I still had a chance to win. But momentum was with Zack. He went +1 on the last four holes, good enough for a two up win. My final numbers: 45-45 for a 90 from the blue/white combo tee (6241 yds, 70.8/133). Despite losing the match, I’m pretty happy with the round. Didn’t putt well on Croasdaile’s quick greens, but hit it well for the most part!   5/11: Played the home course again, and because a league was going off the front, I had to start this round on the tougher back nine. I managed three pars on the back nine, including the signature 18th hole, and I shot 45. Given the way I was playing, I figured I could shoot low 40s on the front nine.  I was right. Five pars on this side, and with two doubles as well, I shot 42 to finish with 87. Another solid round with solid putting (only 30 putts!) that saw my handicap drop a tenth of a stroke (16.0 to 15.9)!   5/17: In prep for the Durham Amateur tournament at Hillandale, I went to play Hillandale yesterday. From the blue tees. On the tougher front nine, I shot 44 which included a par on the tough par-3 seventh. Then, because I had only an hour and 20 minutes until all golfers needed to be off the course, I took a cart for the back nine. Playing kind of fast because I was pressed for time, I actually did okay. Despite playing holes 10-15 in only 45 minutes, I was +7 for the back. Not bad at all because all of the tough holes are in the stretch I’d just finished. I then went par-bogey, meaning a par on the short par-5 18th would bring me in with 88. I proceeded to hit my tee shot into an environmentally protected area, which, lucky me, played as a hazard, so I could just drop. It didn’t help me much though, because I was on in five, and three putted to finish the round with a 47 for the back and a 91 total. Didn’t hit it great, but I putted well again (32 putts here), so that saved me. Short game was also solid!
    • For folks that like the pod, they posted this video of them playing Kiawah recently from where the pros will play this week.  It's a long one,   a pro gives him some advice at the 42 min mark somewhat related to this.  Curious if you agree.    Overall, pretty fun video to watch some decent players try to play that course.    
    • Hi, Anyone out there playing with Ping Eye 2 irons still?  I have acquired a set and would like to deloft these clubs 2-3 deg.  What are your suggestions for final loft specs on these irons?
    • I have played with this push-out early then suck in collapse loopy move for so long, the Mylan coating on my brain pathways is like 40 years old veneer on hardwood.  I really need a few good rounds at some point with this move then I can get some trust and re-Mylan for good. I have literally been losing all context half way through the downswing and jump on the ball abandoning all trust. Scores are a bit comical but I understand where we need to go (I said 'we', hah). Need to survive the lows this year. Digging deep for patience.
