CAREER BEST! Played my home course. Birdie at 1 to get the day rolling and never looked back. 3 birds on the front to one bogey to play the front -2. Had 2 birdies and 2 bogeys on back for an even bac

Shot a 55 on the first 9 and decided to consider the 2nd nine practice. I can't seem to get my score down despite some really good shots. Today I hit two greens with my 5 iron at 165yds and came very close using woods off the fairway on two others. Did really well setting up on every dog legs regardless of which club I used. Yesterday my short irons were working well. I dropped the ball 2" from the hole with an 80yd approach wedge shot and it wasn't a surprise. It just felt good at that point of the round. I believe all aspects of my game are improving but just not on the same day. So any improvement is not showing up on my scorecard. I just have to put it all together - long, mid, short game and course management. Or I'm just full of #%$. Still enjoyable when I look back on the day.

I have a question - does anyone shoot better/worse when walking the course as opposed to riding a cart?

My first time out this year was about 3 weeks ago and i shot a 103. Didnt think it was too bad since it was the first time i played the course.  The name of the course is Tom's Run for those of you from the western Pennsylvania area. Yesterday i shot a 105 at a local course (Chetremon). I had my first birdie of the year on the front nine and shot a 53. Then i started the back nine with par, par, bogey and thought i might be back in the 90's, but then i went 7,9,6 on the next three holes and finished with a 52 on the back. Im going out again tomorrow morning to the same course and hoping to improve on the 105 and get back in the 90's

Shot under 80 for the second time (a 78). Again it was my driving (11 of 14 fairways) that set it up. My new swing thought with driver was to relax the left hand grip pressure slightly as I accelerate down, resulting in better release and no blocks to right. Made two consecutive birdies on the front nine, one from putting it in from the fringe and another from sticking it to 4ft with a full LW to a sharply elevated green. Golf is so much more fun from the fairway ....

Had 35 points today in nasty windy/raining conditions. It was the best score for the day but only a couple of people turned up. Driver let me down, not behaving like it has the last 3 rounds. I lots about 5-6 shots over 18 just by having to chip out of trouble from my drive.

Finally broke 50 with a 47 on the back nine. No mulligans or rule infractions. I missed shooting under 100 because of a 55 on the front. Wedges - which were always the best part of my game - have been very spotty lately especially the high lobs.

Anyway, to most of you these scores are high but it was goal of mine. Picked up a lot of usable info from posts on this site. So thanks to the other members and staff.

Played my local course again this morning and shot my best round so far this year with a 101. Broke 50 on the back nine with a couple pars and my second birdie of the year. But I had a snowman following the birdie and ended up shooting a 47. Would have been nice but I shot a 54 on the front nine.

Shot an 86 on Thursday. My God, the rough is brutal this time of year. If I missed a fairway by even a few feet it became an Easter egg hunt. I only missed four fairways but I doubled each one of them. Otherwise, I played great, but couldn't make any birdie putts. I had 4-5 legit chances.

Shot 89 today off the white tees at my local golf club.

Out - 43: 1 birdie, 2 pars, 4 bogeys, 2 double bogeys, 19 putts (2x1 putt, 4x2 putt, 3x3putt), 1xFIR, 1xGIR

In - 46: 2 pars, 3 bogeys, 4 double bogeys, 17 putts (2x1 putt, 6x2 putt, 1x3 putt), 0xFIR, 2xGIR

- Couldnt hit a bloody FIR even if it was right in front of me!

- Got the 7th birdie of my life today :)

- Matched my one put record today with 4 in total but more importantly kept instances of playing ping pong down to only 4 three putts!

- The real test will come on Monday when I get out for the bank holiday weekend competition. Id be happy with shooting high 90's or even low hundreds!

- Got some lovely photos of the sun setting this evening too :)

This winter has been an absolute hell in the Kansas City area.  We just had snow again on May 2nd. (thursday)   I played today and posted my first official round for handicap purposes and it was a brutal struggle.   73.2CR 141Slope.........84= (8.7diff)

The course was sloppy wet and the fairways were plugging.  Most of my tee shots backed up and the course played like it was 6 miles long...LOL  I hit 3-wood into 3 par 4s!!!!!!!! (parred 2 of them)  I had 4 double bogeys and 3 were due to bad tee shots.  The other was due to bad short game.  I'm struggling with distance control on approaches.  I'm hitting extra club into holes and coming up short.  When I finally club extra to compensate, then I go long!!  LOL    The story of my day is coming up short on the front pins, and flying over the green at the back pins....(not a good combo)  When I finally make a nice chip after missing a green, I miss the short par saving putts.   I hit several crisp irons today, but the results were bad anyway due to distance control issues.

Overall....my game is pretty rough right now.  I did make 2 birdies today, so at least there is a glimmer of hope.

Best round of my life today.  Could have been better. Had a GIR on 8 & 9 and 3 putted both, and sucked on 18.  I'm totally stoked that I shot an 86, and even more stoked that I probably should have shot an 82.

88, my second best round ever and the first time ive broke 90 in a long time. The lessons just seemed to click today. Tighter course then I'm used to so I fought the driver a bit but hit nice irons and my wedge was just on today.

    • Never thought of that. Sometimes in bed I accidentally put pressure on mine and it's not pleasant. My thought is that if ever I do need surgery it will be pretty obvious so I'm just putting up with it and seeing what happens.  
    • The Titleist website has a tour and description of their manufacturing process for the ProV1 and ProV1X lines. It doesn’t go into great detail, but I found it interesting. I assume other balls are made in a similar fashion.   Titleist Ball Plant 3 Digital Tour  
    • Not sure if or when I will need surgery. It seems to be stable at the moment. If it gets worse, I will go see the doctor again. I just worry about injuring it if I trip and reach out flat handed.
    • Sounds pretty much like me. But I even have difficulty washing my hair and shaking hands and putting my hand in my pocket. I had experimental radiation therapy on the hand that isn't as bad. I have no sweat glands on that hand but the Dupytrens  doesn't seem to be progressing. Do you think that surgery for you is inevitable, down the track?  I have heard that Xiaflex is hard to get but results are only temporary.
    • I did say 8 months, not 12. And again, I very much hope I am wrong. I did not realise that he could't play in WGCs. He'd still get a start in any regular tour event he wanted to play in.
