71, two 3-putts on the front and missed a couple other shorts ones. Then on 17 made a 60ft eagle putt so I guess it kinda evens out 😉

Good news is I think I kicked my 63 out today so trend went up to +2.1 👍

Another crazy round. 82 (38-44). 1 under after the 6th hole, finish bogey, bogey, bogey. Back nine, just lost it. A couple pars, bogeys, doubles, and even a triple.

Oh well, we'll try again today and tomorrow. Nice 86 degree days through New Years.

Yesterday afternoon, a good friend and I played the back 9 at our local course. We both shot 39s. (+3)

Sounds good and all, but not scores we could report for cap purposes. 

We decided to change things up a little just for fun. The course was empty for the most part, so no, we didn't hold anyone up. What we did was hit everything before the green off tees. Fairways, a few roughs, approaches, and pitches. We tee'd everything up. 

We actually played 13 holes this way, since we played 10 & 18 two extra times each. Still finished at +3.

Just two old guys out screwing around, having fun.

I find it interesting people list how many shots they have taken. Surely this is relevant to the course. My existing course is a par 74, whereas the one I plan to join soon is only a 69. Wouldn't stableford points be more of an indicator?

75, 73 and 71. Weekend and today. Won money each day.

Golf is funny. I grinded so much harder on that 75 round than the 66 a few days before.

Todays round was pretty good, it was cold and windy. Hit clubs on holes today I've never ht before. For example on 15 the other day I had 95 yards in, today I had 165 to a back pin, hit a solid 5-iron to the center. Second hole is an easy par-5 that I'll typically hit a mid or short iron into, today was 20 yards short with a 3-wood.

No it wasn't. 🙂

Couldn't feel my fingers for the first five holes. Had at least two layers on all day....and had to wear pants 😮

39-37-76 New Course at Grand Cypress, white tees

Maybe my new favorite course in the Orlando area to play.  Really enjoyed it, plus did my first game golf round, which I managed to have to have to renter most of the back 9 as my phone died on me.  

Only thing with the drives, is that the course was wet and it was windy, most of my driving distance was all carry, didn’t get a lot of roll today.

Shot an 80 (41/39) (net 65) yesterday in a super seniors tourney. Finished in 3rd place out of 28 entries. Kind of a chest pump moment for me. Won two dozen Pro V1s with that effort. Maybe they will let me trade them for some e7s. lol

Today was back to back 39s for a 78. Probably the best back to back rounds I have put together in some time. Took my crew of old guys' monies I did. Makes me want to play on the weekend which I normally don't do.

A few (very few) birds, cancelling out few doubles. The rest were either pars, or bogey 1s. 

Missed a 160 yard hole in one by an inch, which was my shot of the day, even though I putted really, really well, with 24 flat stick strokes. 

Not a bad couple of days for a distance challenged old dinosaur.

Wish our scores would’ve been a little better.

too many bad shots today. But loads of fun!

Please refrain from posting pictures like that when it's winter over here 😒 😃
Anyway, played 18 today. Shot 10 over, very pleased. It was 6 C° (42F for you guys), no rain.

    • I was at this event in Portland in 2010.....Juli Inkster was DQ'd for putting on a weighted donut for practice swings to keep limber after a long wait on a tee block....as a LPGA veteran, she should have known better. But the big story that week was Dina Ammacapane shaming a small kid who sign up to loop and was assigned Dina by the caddie master. https://www.eastoregonian.com/sports/inkster-dq-d-miyazato-leads-safeway-classic/article_c2e79d22-8251-5904-b5cf-15670b0c6c4d.html https://www.oregonlive.com/sports/oregonian/john_canzano/2010/08/canzano_lpga_golfers_short_fus.html    
    • Day 48 Back to my normal practice today. Slow swings with a foam ball focusing on eliminating OTT.  Started using a 4i in addition to my 7i hoping to figure out those longer irons which are killing me. Although, to be fair, I didn't really hit even my 7i well when I played yesterday. I was just off a bit on everything. Lots of thin shots with my irons other than my wedges. I feel like I'm close to moving on to other elements of my swing since the shallower swing and feels I use are starting to feel more natural to the point where I'm almost able to not think about them. 
    • 9/26/20 Update: I decided to go with @iacas's advice and try to start the ball more on 0* and just swing straighter (or even slightly to the right like every other club).  Why?  I loved the pull fade, but I felt I was chasing something and fighting my natural shape (a straight draw as Erik noted).  I walked 18 recently and shot a disappointing 83.  Too many re-tees and drops due to driver.  My approach play was quite good, but I didn't maximize my opportunities off the tee. Here were a few shots from yesterday.  I pretty much did what Erik suggested: try to just hit the ball straight.  haha.  sounds simple enough.  These numbers are very similar to what I do with my other clubs.  At first, it just didn't feel like I could do it with a driver because the ball is on a tee, and that makes me feel like I'm swinging to the left.  But, it seemed to work well.  Really all I did was put the ball position off my front foot, forward shaft lean (I do this with every club; butt of club pointed at my left hip area), point the Callaway arrow at 0*, feel behind the ball, and swing like I normally do for the most part (maybe swing a little right what feels like to me so I don't hit a push fade).  The results were pretty good.  More or less just straight balls with minimal curve, like my other shots.  My ball speed was in the ball park, maybe a little slower than where I'd like to see it, but I'm not a particularly fast player.  My launch does look a bit high though; maybe I'm adding too much loft through the shot?  That could be lowering my ball speed a bit from what I like to see. NOTE: I realize that GC2’s algorithm really likes low spin shots. It ain’t really carrying that far. Truth is, every single one of those shots is flying around 255-265 when you enter the data into flightscope's optimizer. It’s weird because I’ve looked into the algorithm stuff and noticed that it appears to occur only with clubs with less spin, e.g. driver and maybe a low spin 3w. It’s like once you get around 3k spin or less, GC2 overly rewards the carry number. With the other clubs, it’s pretty much spot on. For instance, I know with my 5i if I get my 127-130 mph ball speed range, it’ll fly 185-190.  It appears that once I grab my 5w or less, the numbers match up on the Gc2, flightscope projections, and what I see on course; I just have to remember that when I hit my driver or I catch a low spinner with my 3w that the results will not be as optimistic as the machine reads. NOTE 2: If I should move this to my swing thread, let me know @boogielicious.
    • Swinging a club with its headcover on is perfectly legal.  There are some with zippers which stay on!  I've asked USGA.
