104 today. Putting was atrocious. 3 one putts - 8 two putts and 7 three or more putts. Good grief! On the plus side I hit my fairway woods very well and, for a change, my irons were pretty good too. GHIN shows my handicap trending down. I hope it knows what it's talking about...

Memorial Day was an uneventful 77.

Yesterday was a different story. Started out double bogey, bogey, double bogey, and started wondering if I was holding the right end of the club. Settled down after that, and knocked in the next 13 pars, bogeyed 17, and then par on 18 for a 78. After the first 3 holes, I figured I'd have a 90's day. Never give up!

73-70-74-71 on my last 4 rounds at my home course. (6500 yards, par 72, rating 70.2). Enough to keep it at 1 handicap for the moment. The bad is that i finished 2nd in every round.

May 29 - Stonebrook in Shakopee league play filling in for a co-worker. Shot 37 (+2) on the front 9 with a birdie on #9. Then we played the back 9 for fun and shot 41 (+6) for a 79.

I have been wandering in the wilderness, golf style.  My game has been atrocious.  I am supposedly a "9-10" handicap but lately I have done a very good impression of beginner.  Two days ago I shot a 97. Nothing about my play indicated that I was formerly a competent golfer.

Today was our 2nd tournament of 2018.  I was paired with three excellent players and, frankly, I was worried about stinking out the place.  Okay, my 81 (69.8/130) was not great but I didn't force my playing partners to experience another melt down.

Greatly relieved.

75 today. 2 birdies, 1 bogey, 13 pars, 2 double bogeys. The doubles were totally my fault. Going for a green on a par 5 that I couldn't have reached with my best shot, and a 2 foot tap in that I just walked up to a swiped at it. I vow to play smart golf starting tomorrow.

Played 72 holes this week. Averagd 4.60 per hole. I had, for me, a poor first round on tues. 87-82-80-80 in that order. 

Missed a couple of 5' foot putts today that could have given me a 79, or 78. One even lipped out. I think a coyote farting threw me off just enough on that one. 

My putting was ok averaging 30 per round. Made a few long ones. 

Didn't finish last in any of the 4 groups, all strangers, that I played with. 

Just a good week of golf.

+12 on an unconventional rotation. I played 1 jumped to 9 when I saw a group that had been in that same spot on #2 for 15 minutes. I played 10 - 16 and headed to the house due to rumbly skies. It was pouring shortly after I left the course, so that was certainly a good decision.

The good: I only missed one fairway today.

The bad: Distances are really bad. Not getting any roll as wet as it has been.

The ugly: Short game and putting. It's taking 3-4 strokes when I'm close to the green.

Shot a 95 today. Only two 3 putts but also only two 1 putts. Overall ball striking is improving so there is hope. Handicap should go down a bit for this month so that's good.

I shot a 103, but I am not that disappointed.  My lack of disappointment stems from the fact that it was a course that I had never played before; Lanier Islands Legacy.  We played from the blue tees, which have a rating of 71.0 and a slope of 137.  It's not overly long at 6193 yards, but there are a ton of forced carries over the edge of Lake Lanier, and it was pretty windy.  I also hadn't been on a golf course since the first week of April, so I haven't had much practice.

On a positive note, I played really well out of the sand and only chunked one shot.

On a negative note, I had a bout with the shanks on hole seven after hitting a nice drive.

90.  45 and 45. Osprey Pointe. Among my best rounds ever - I shot 90 two other times.  Truth is that I have shot 89 twice, but both on a par 70 course.  So I am not calling those breaking 90. I lipped a four footer on the 18th to screw this one up.  Frown Town.  But it was a fine, happy day.  Hey, and I only paid $9.63 to play.

Shot a 95 today. Second sub-100 round in a row, par 70 course. LSW and a few of the course strategy videos I have been watching are really making a difference. I am hitting the ball a bit better and with less stress while also making much better decisions on the course. Gotta keep it up.

Shot 92, 43 front 49 back, Timbers at Troy from the blue tees.  6 pars on the front.  I am seeing a trend of higher scores on the back nine.

more work to do.  

Oh, LSW is spot on.  The closer to the pin you are the lower the score.

    • Hi All! I started really making an effort to improve my game this summer. Took a couple of lessons and really started to make good contact with the irons and stop pulling the ball. Getting confident there. Now, I'm having a crazy issue with the driver.  The last time I was hitting my driver straight-ish, I had the ball way farther back in my stance than seemed natural for a driver, basically in the middle of my stance. The ball would be low but for the most part straight. I moved the ball forward in my stance, and all hell has broken loose. Now every shot with the driver is a hard, low-arcing hook that starts way left and stays way left. My swing with the driver doesn't feel comfortable at all. I'm going to take another lesson and ask about it, but I was wondering if any of you had had a similar experience. Any advice would be appreciated.
    • Actually he did. They have two of the booths with the screens that show your ball flight and all the numbers they use. He had some other electronic device he was using behind me. This place is a really nice golf course with 27 holes, plus a really nice practice facility. They are supposed to be the best in Wisconsin for club fitting. It took me all day to get there, get this done and drive back. I sure do hope it works out!
    • At least the guy in the store didn't tell you that you were standing too close to the ball after you hit it.  Old joke.
    • I have played Ping GI (GMax) for the past three years. I also start my irons at 6i. I made sure they were a good fit at the time I bought them.  Mine are Ping, red, senior shaft.  I, too, had some difficult getting used to those shafts. I had used steel shafts for decades. It took a while of practicing my 6i,7i and 9i, one club at a time  My coach tore down my swing with these clubs to the basics to get to the level of confidence I have now. We videoed everything, including grip for each club.  We discussed the target range and loft of each clubs.  While you are tending, I think, to see these clubs as a "set", I was told to treat these as individual clubs only.   I have also used tape and spray to mark just about every practice shot I took.  And for a while I need every shot to look for patterns (I tend to hit more towards the toe.) After I examined the markings, the pattern of mis-hits was clear and that gave my coach a clear view of what needed correction. As well, we took it down to position of the face of the club at every point of the swing. We slowed down the swing until I felt comfortable with it. Finally, everything was combined into the swing I now use. Finally, we looked at any changes I might make for each of the clubs.  It took about a month of this kind of steady practice.  Now I am happy with the shots around 90% of the time. Like you, I do choke up a bit on these clubs more than my 3 hybrids.  As many have said, there could be many reasons these are not working for you. I suggest making a video and posting it on line here at TST.  
    • I know I still have a long, long way to go but this is my before swing:   Cutting way across the ball, weak slices, shanks, over the top, out to in - you name it horrible, horrible. Then after one evolvr lesson 6 days later:    Still not pretty at all, but my instructor has got my grip stronger (with my right hand at least, still working on my left hand) and I've got a sensation of trying to leave the club face more closed throughout the swing and bowing the lead wrist more, even though I'm not in reality. Ive had dramatic improvements in ball flight. Hitting a mix of straight shots, draws and occasional hooks now, and all but eliminated slicing, Gained a lot of distance too. It's turned things around for me to be honest. Now I am working on strengthening the grip with the left hand, turning out my left foot and angling my neck to match my shoulders, as per my instructors advice. Any further suggestions welcomed. Im pretty sure Im flipping the club a lot and adding loft.
