Yesterday...to be precise.  Tied 3-3 at the turn then got routed on the back nine.  We play out the entire 18...so I lost 8-5.  Too many off-course adventures.

Shot a 79 yesterday.  Got a quick lesson before my round to work on driver swing and chipping.  The adjustments seemed to help.  I was hitting my irons really well all day.  Possibly the best I've ever hit them for an entire round.  MIssed some easy putts on the front, but made a lot of putts to save par on the back.  Made 7 pars in a row at one point in the middle of the round.  Overall a great day.

102. Was late, only hit about 20 shots on the range and couldn’t hit a 7 iron on the range for the life of me. 

Then I started with a birdie on a 400 yard par 4... if I could get rid of the 3-4 blowup holes I could break 90... 

I had two 9s on my scorecard today...

Did hit my longest ingame drive though 265 yards, and I had 4 1 putts vs 2 3 putts and this is a course known for its fast greens.

76 today. That's after 12 rounds in the last 11 days. No real score for the last 4 days. They were games like alternate shot, scrambles, straight match play. Tomorrow, I rest. I need it!

forgot to post - played on the 6th (right before we get blasted with a foot of snow last weekend)

2 over 74 on a shorter easier course. but seriously, great start to the season.  (3 holes were chopped short with temporary tees).  2 bogies and a lot of pars.  more regulation than most, but I'm jazzed about getting up and in on the misses.

I'm hitting really clean (like the last in mexico), still terrified of my 5 iron, and my putting is greatly improved within 8 feet - some significant changes over the winter.  I think these will stay for a bit.

Played yesterday in the strongest wind I have ever played in. The ball would not remain on the tee, flagsticks and cups were blown over and out of the hole. Shot 44 on 9 and packed it in due to lightning. Hit a 5 150 and PW 170 due to wind. At least 3 club wind. Makes you appreciate the British open a little more wind you see the flagsticks bent in half

104 on Saturday (4/13) - working on flattening out my driver club path to eliminate a slice. Not very consistent creating a really "entertaining" two way miss. Didn't hit irons well at all either.

Shot 91 last Saturday (4/6). Irons were well above average, kept driver in play on all holes. 

Both days were mid 70s weather with a light breeze - SoCal Golf!!!

Shot an 87 on Saturday, which was about 6-10 shots better than my recent trend, and more in line with what I'm used to playing. Probably would have done better if it wasn't for half-sandy greens, some of which were very slow while others were almost normal speed. 

Oh and the guys behind our foursome complained about playing slow, so I invited them to play through. We finished in 4:40, so if they want to rush, that's okay, but a walking foursome on a hilly municipal golf course playing in 4:40 is pretty good in my book. I wasn't the guy slowing down the group, but I do hate feeling rushed.

86 for me today. (40/46) finished up the round in a 2 club wind. Way too many 5 stroke holes, and  very few pars.

Missed some putts due to ground winds blowing the ball off line. Had 33 putts. 

The wind is bringing in tomorrow's thunder storms I guess.. 

Had a great time anyways.

41/41 for an 82. 29 putts. A little windy at times, but decent weather none the less.

Just played pretty steady golf. Nothing real bad, and nothing real good. I did luck in a 20 footer (+/-) for a par. 

Played with a couple of tourist visiting from Germany. Good conversation with them. Kind of fun to know what the Europeans think of America.

Shot an 82 at the same place I played the other day and shot the 81. I think that's called consistency 😉. In all seriousness, I'm starting to have fun out there!

First ever eagle on a PAR4 450yards nice chip shot just kept on rolling

6 penalty shots hurt the score... far too many lost balls

Shot 90 today, 40/50.

Had a very nice birdie on par 5 at the 6th hole ( I was 2 over after that hole), winning it for my team but it all went down hill from there. Could not buy a par for the rest of the day, even it was nGIR and even 2 or 3 three putts.

Luckily my friends struggled today too so I still came up winning a little bit. 

Plan to see my instructor next week. Feeling my ball striking improved a lots recently but the scores are just so so. My goal this year would be break 80.

    • Long post. Trending in the right direction. Today was five straight rounds under par. Did a Facetime session with Mario this week. Here is the "before" and what he saw: "Keep working that trail side climb earlier to get the recenter fractionally sooner. Shoulders are getting a little "rounded" at the top.  Will reduce the linear needed from here to get the pressure onto lead foot then the force back can happen quicker. Pressure can still be on the right of COM then tilt and shift over to the lead lead from here. If you lift up each foot back and forth quick  the pressure shifts left to right quick but the body COM does not move. If you drift right too long or too slow, the COM will drift with the pressure shift for too long on the trail side. So if it just breaks the red line then turns on it the COM shifted to the trail side and is ready for the arrow tilt from the trail and to move over to the lead quick for the larger moment arm." Based on that I'm going to experiment with unweighting the left foot more, allowing the left heel to raise. Here are those swings. Better. Feel wise on the course I’m more “aware” of how different the unweighting is compared to a couple days ago, feels “taller” on the backswing. Doing a drill with a light kettlebell and the step drills to enforce the feels and momentum. Then some pitching. Keeping it simple. Arms soft, sternum forward of my belt buckle, sternum stays forward  
    • Really liked this session. I have never really understood this stuff, despite being asked to it by my instructors a couple of times. Never got a good feeling for it at all. Watching this video and doing the drills really helped with that a lot. Now I have a good starting point if I'm going to need focus on this in the future again. 
    • Checked my grip, which is pretty neutral as I’ve battled hooks, especially with driver and my instructor has been working on getting me to a more neutral grip, as opposed to my old super strong grip. I tend to revert to strong grip if I don’t check at setup. My wrist is slightly cupped at the top with toe angled down a bit I struggled a lot with palmar flexion when it was first described to me by my instructor. I’ve gotten the hang of it in the last year, and for me the feeling is like slightly revving a throttle. I also used a training aid from Tourstriker that helped with the transition from extension to flexion, forget what it was called but it was helpful for me. 
    • I'm binge-watching Animal Kingdom. I think it's great and I can't stop watching it.  It's got a great story and great storylines and great action and tension.  And the acting is terrific.  This is definitely a show to get your mind off of things.  Has no one mentioned this show here? I did a search for Animal Kingdom and nothing showed up.  I think the show has already been on for 4 years, so that's why I'm surprised.  
    • Christine is a friend of mine. I was looking forward to having lunch at the Fairway Inn and giving her a hard time as @missitnoonan and I usually do. Hopefully soon.
