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

Was 8 over through 15 holes.  Skipped 16, 17, 18 as life got in the way.  Best ever +3 on the front for a cool 39.  Had I parred out the last three, career round of 80.  Would've been neat.

I shoot 106 at Silverhorn in San Antonio. Not great, but the first round of golf in months. The rough was so thick it was difficult to chip around the greens. The greens were very firm. Very tough conditions as a whole. Aside from a few bad mistakes, I feel I played OK. I think I should have been around 95 the way I was playing, but there were so many bad putts or bad bounces that pushed my ball OB.

I played Ocotillo Golf Course in Hobbs, NM again this afternoon/evening.  Shot a 46 (+10) on the front nine which is a large improvement for me over yesterday.  I finally got the feel of my irons back and hit a lot of well struck balls, with the occasional diff.  Lots of future range time will bring my consistency up, as I know what a good swing feels like.  It's a complete training of the body, muscles and mind, and I need more practice to be able to perform consistently and avoid hitting a 180 yard ball 50 yards.

The back 9 was so backed up it was unreal.  I got stuck behind a group of 2 couples who were spraying it everywhere, and they were stuck behind a slow party as well, so no sense in letting me play through.  I had so much time, I took 4 - 5 balls with me to each tee box and played best ball by myself.  I really wanted to get some work in on an actual course for the tournament tomorrow, so I hit a wide variety of shots.  Of course I didn't keep score since I was going so far off the grid, but it was very relaxing and I feel I got a lot done.  I took several drops in random spots and forced myself to make several 'golf' shots instead of taking the easy route from the middle of the fairway.  All I want right now is to strike the ball well.  If I get off-target, my chipping is almost always ON and I can rescue myself from any right or left misses when hitting approach shots.

Tonight was a good mental comeback, which I desperately needed after hacking it up on the same course yesterday.

42 on front of 70.9/125. Not bad but I am a dolt. I missed the fairway, dang near hit it across a patch of unmaintained field between the 1 and 2 coming back the other way. There's a gas well out there for crying out loud, have never seen anyone over there. Seriously I missed the fairway some 20 yds left over a serious of mounds that typically keep balls on the green stuff. Bad lie and I tried to punch a 7i towards the green from shin deep dried whatever. Fail, the ball land short and I chunk a chip leaving a long downhill, left to right impossible putt. Because I am a lazy SOB I leave the flag in. Blam in it goes after trying to lag it close to save bogey and with it a 2 stroke penalty for double. All I had to do was walk 25-30 feet and it couild have been an awesome par.

Can't remember who asked about my clubs being locked in the car. I had intended to play up with just spare irons but this was my first time out in a few days. I managed to free my clubs from car jail so not going to happen. I do need to update my forum HI, yesterday I made into the tens finally. Feel pretty good about it considering more than a decade passed before I started playing again 04/2012. If I move back a set of tees and stay the course I'll trend to single digits this season.

-3 32, 2500 yards 9-holes, 32.5 rating, 117 slope, net round -0.5

4 birdies, 1 bogey, 4 pars, probably the most completely dominating round of nine holes i ever played. Though the course is short, its a tricky course. The third hole is a very long par 3 over water. The 4th hole is a short par 4, with water that snakes across the fairway, and water and OB guard the left and deep of the green. The 5th hole is a short three tiered par 3, with OB Right and long. The 9th hole is a short par 4 with OB left due to the driving range. So, its a short course, but accuracy is needed or it can beat up on ya.

I knew it was a good day when i am 2 under going into the 8th hole, and i in-vision my shot starting over the white tee marker, and drawing back to the flag. The ball did that because i nicked the flag stick, and the ball came back towards the hole for a 1 foot birdie putt. The ball mark was about 2 feet past the pin.

Yesterday was awful. We only got in 8 holes due to the rain but Mother Nature was being merciful. I only hit 1 fairway and no GIR. I lost two balls in the first hole and quit keeping score after the second. I told my wife it was one of those rounds that would make some quit. She said it was only one day and the next round will be better. I need some range time.

Played today with a new-to-me set of Callaway RazrX irons. Have until Monday/Tuesday to decide if I will keep them. First time using graphite shafts... anyways, actually hit pretty well considering they were new clubs. Playing again with them Monday!

Played the scramble and we went -5. Enough to win 3rd in our flight. Used the clubhouse credit for new balls and stocked up. I hit some good shots, and some bad shots. Had one excellent drive. The rest ranged from mediocre to decent. My putter was on today, but we literally had about 8 putts that didn't go down but were SO close. Playing at the local course again tomorrow. My schedule is clear and I'm ready to get back out there.

82 at the Batesville, AR muni. Finally figured out a little something with my grip and my drives have straightened out a bunch! I hit a couple really nice shots with my 3 wood that gave me a bird on a long par 5. I missed so many par putts I nearly let it get to me, but the second putt was always just long of a tap in or was one. I didn't 3 putt all day. At 59 (60 in Nov) I don't feel too bad about the state of my game. I just wish I were more flexible so I could get more than 200-230 out of my drives. I just can't seem to store enough spring in the old body as I once could. I'm hitting my irons fair to good, but that 40 yard and under shot is the part of the game I really love, and it shows. A little more practice reading putts, and placing those close iron shots within reason, and I might get back to the mid 70's (like I could in the early 1980's), but I'm happy with the direction of my game.

[RIGHT][/RIGHT]Got caught behind some really slow players at Santa Anita. I think they evaluated every single possibility with almost every club. After the 16th it was so dark, we just walked off. Front 9 had some blowup holes for a 49. Back 9 improved with a birdie, my first ever from the blue tees. 34 with two unfinished par 4s. Had some really good drives.

Went out this morning and shot a 93 (+21). Just couldn't get the putter to work for me. I have the Odyssey metal-x #6 that I'm trying to adjust to coming from a 2ball. Went back out this evening and shot an 86 which is about average for me. Drained a 40 foot and a 20 foot putt. Night and day difference from this morning. Sometimes they're dropping and sometimes they're not. That's golf!

    • I've been Playing Golf for: 3 years My current handicap index or average score is: 4.5 My typical ball flight is: big fade / slice The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: slice   Hey, I have a "my swing" threat on tst right after I started but it's now too old to update so I created a new one. Really interested in what you guys think. I'm working alot on my swing therefore I'm happy for every single tip especially if it straightens my ball flight. Thanks! Videos:     
    • How about The Reserve at Spanos Park?  Just north of Stockton right on I-5, that might work for timing?  In Sacramento, I also see Bing Maloney and Teal Bend both close to I-5. I wouldn't recommend making a detour towards Fresno - really no reason to lengthen a trip to get through there unless you planned on going to Yosemite or Kings Canyon / Sequoia as well.
    • What aspect of putting are you failing at?  For example, I can consistently do the ruler drill to over 80% accuracy (I often get 20+ to go straight out of 25).  Yet I'm a terrible putter, so lately I've been doing a "coin drill" at 4' and 6' (sometimes one or the other, sometimes one then the other).  I put 12 coins in a circle, approx equally spaced, around a hole, and try to make a putt from each coin.  I pick up the coin when I make one from there, and count total putts.  This gives a little bit for line and reading short putts.  I really should institute a penalty for myself when I leave one short from that distance. ESC also had a great drill from 12' or so:  pick a hole 12' or so from you (doesn't have to be exact), putt one ball to it.  Make it, give yourself two points.  Two-putt, and the first went past the hole?  No change.  Two-putt, first didn't get to the hole?  Lose a point.  Three-putt (or worse), lose 3.  See if you can get to 10 points. I guess I'm asking:  is it read, speed, or bead that you're struggling with?
    • Day 60.  Today was a good day for Shindig's game.   I was able to get to a course and spend some time on the putting green, including doing a 6' coin drill, completing it in 26 putts.   That's better than my target goal of keeping that under 30.  Of course, fewer is always better.  I also, later in the day, hit 30 chips with my 56 and 30 with my gap (U) iron, quarter shots all, indoors, real balls, off a mat, into a net, and managed a dozen slow, careful full 6-iron shots too.   If it seems that I'm prioritizing short game lately, you're right.  I have two tournaments in the next seven days, so I'm trying to do what I can in the short term to bring my score down by focusing on these.  Plus, let's face it, my short game is abominable anyway, so this isn't a bad thing long term either (although I do subscribe to 2/3 on long game, in general, of course).
    • Day 492: Something has not been feeling in sync lately, so decided to not do any "full" full swings today. Did takeaway drills in the mirror for 15 minutes, observing DTL and FO views to make sure I am getting to an okay spot at shaft parallel. Then did the same drill outside, and stopped at shaft parallel, and then when a bit further and kind of bunted the ball into the net. Did this for about 30 minutes with a PW, 7-iron, and hybrid.
