78 on Chaska Town course.  Good back nine and good first 3 holes.  Finally took care of the 2nd and the 17th with regulation pars (both long par 4s that give me trouble on the 2nd shot).  Regulation par on the 18th in the dark - hit, and then walk up to where the ball 'should' be,,,,and it was there on all 3 shots....  Par on 9 after a crappy drive and mediocre 2nd -  which I usually duff the 3rd, this time a good approach.  Great finish.  Good driving all day.  Better GIR than last time.

no birdies, looks like the season is ending without a real bang, but some solid play.

93 and 88.  All in all a good weekend for me including a birdie in each round. I am pretty sure my index is about to drop some, and I am excited to see how much I can improve now that I have made it over a hurdle (driver is behaving) and I have a clear path to follow with my practices (partial shots with short irons and wedges).  I credit the advice from all of you at this site for the bulk of my education.

93 53-40 

It’s a pretty easy course that is long but quite forgiving. 6600 yards. But the greens were brutal. I had 41 putts and we all had a bad putting day. Really fast, huge breaks, just something we are not used to. 
 

On the back 9 I had 4 pars, 3 bogeys a double and a birdie. 3 single putts but still 2 triple putts!!

84, with back to back 42s, and 34 putts. Had birdies, pars, bogies, and a double bogey. 

Best shot of the day was a 10'+/- putt for that double bogey. 

Cold, north, gusty wind in the western part of the Vegas Valley  put a damper on my game. Had to wear warm clothing. 

Had a ton of fun anyways.

Yesterday was an 80 (37-43) and today was an 80 (41-39). Nothing special about either rounds. 1 birdie yesterday, and 1 birdie today.

Had the front 9 of my life today.  Started birdie, par, par, double bogey, par.  Through 8 I was +4 (including two penalty strokes) and then hit a bad tee shot on the 9th hole (hole 27), had to chip out, didn't concentrate enough and had to try and crazy draw shot which didn't draw and went into the woods and, after it was all said and done, carded a 9 on the hole and 46 on the front 9.

Back 9 started with a birdie but got very wild and with 4 penalty shots on the back and shot a 49.  Really disappointed because I really felt good at the start of the round and then my tee shots just started coming undone and wasn't able to correct it until the end of the round.  But two rounds in a row I've gotten two birdies and all time high in GIRs :).  Anyway, here's the round:

CR/SR: 72.5/123

Score: 95 (Started on hole 19)

GIR: 6/18 (33%)

Birdies: 2

Pars: 3

Bogeys: 5

DB: 7

Quintuple Bogey: 1

Well, today I shot 95 again but my ball striking was really off.  1 had 1 GIR and 4 penalty strokes.  However, I didn't really have any blow-up holes.   Three weeks ago I would have been happy as a pig in sh*t at shooting 95, today I was disappointed. :-$

Score: 95

CR/Slope 70.3/123

GIR: 1 (6%)

Pars: 2

Bogeys: 11

DB: 3

TB: 2

I've been away a couple of days, so it wasn't today, it was Thursday. The weather had been gorgeous and the yard work,  garden work, and housework was all done, and I was itching to get out. So, I called my buddy and left a voice mail. He called me back and said he was meeting his Son and BIL at a local course, tee time 1PM. Come on out. 

I won't try to tell you that this is a hard course, but it has some challenging holes. What we like about it is its conditioning. It's about as close to a country club as we can find around here, and seniors can play for 15 bucks a round, w/cart on Mondays! When I got my first look at the course driving in I thought, "Ooh! The course looks really nice!" And it was. The fairways were tight and rolling, the rough was penal, and the greens were putting fast and true, with a lot of break.

I shot 37-40=77, my second time breaking 80 this season. And I've been threatening 80 quite a few times.

Shot a very solid 75 in less than ideal conditions (mid 40 degrees with a constant 20+ mph wind on a relatively tree-less, links style course)

Holed out from ~40 yards for a birdie, and hit a tee shot to the back fringe on a short par 4 for another birdie.

Putted really well, gained 1.2 strokes compared to scratch, and hit it pretty solid off the tee as well, gaining .60 strokes compared to scratch.

Great round yesterday. An even par 72. Started with a birdie on the first hole, followed by 3 pars, another birdie on the 5th hole, pars on 6 and 7, then bogeys on 8 and 9 for an even 36 for the front. I really wanted that 34. The back was 5 straight pars, then disaster as I chunked my driver into the weeds just ahead of the tee. Double bogey, but came back with a birdie on 16 and 17, and par on 18 for the 72.

Tee time today in about an hour. We'll see if I can repeat.

Got 18 in on the longer course on my local muni. 45+45 90. Two 7s, three 6s and the rest were better than that so I avoided my typical snowmen on this course. CR 67.9 SR 122 from the members (5900 yards). This was my 10th round that I have counted for handicap so it jumped from my best (16.0) to average of best 5 (19.7). Really happy with everything today except for putting, but the greens were rolling really quick. Watched a guy in the group in front of me miss an uphill putt 4 times, and have it roll back to his feet every time. Some of them were long of the hole as well. The last one he put right in the hole (10 ft or so). Found myself in the same spot when I got to the green and put my first one in knowing what was at stake.

    • Have been really focusing on my centered pivot piece and am starting to see pretty solid results. The two things that have helped the most are flaring out my front foot/not letting my knee collapse inward towards my right leg, and feeling like every swing stops when I'm at left arm parallel and the club is vertical. In reality the knee still moves down/in a little bit and the club still goes most of the way back, but centered pivot and strike have improved greatly. My head movement has decreased significantly compared to like 6-12 months ago, on most swings it doesn't go forward of its' starting position at all. Will start adding in the increased rotation piece that I worked on in my last lesson as well, and have started the Superspeed training again, would like to get my clubhead speed from 110 to 115 and would love to see some 170 ball speeds in a couple months. I have noticed that when I try to do a ton of rotation and opening my chest more through impact, the clubface tends to get very closed so it results in a lot of overdraws/hooks mainly with the irons. I'm sure my instructor can tell me why that is happening but was just wondering if that is a common thing and if anyone else has experienced that before?
    • When this happens to me, when playing alone and practicing, I'll gladly welcome the joining player.  But I always give them a chance to back out when I tell them I'm essentially practicing and I'm hitting a few balls on almost every shot.  Usually they join in on the silliness and we still strictly keep pace with the group in front.
    • 8 Dec in Iowa...  It was in the mid 40s....  Light wind. Today(the 9th)  it's snowing now with temps the next couple weeks in the 20s & 30s.  We're pretty much finally at the end of the year. Ended up playing 36.  91 and 91... that's rare...…. Especially for me..  LOL   Been struggling with my driver the 1st 18 and finally figured a couple things out towards the end of the 2nd 18...…  Of course at the end of play...LOL  Hopefully I can remember it in the spring.      
    • Lets go back to 2016, OSU versus Clemson, and why this is a different OSU team.  OSU Offense 2016 versus 2019 Passer Rating: 44th versus 5th Passing Yards Avg: 87th versus 10th Rushing Average: 17th versus 6th  OSU Defense 2016 versus 2019 Rushing Average: 19th versus 6th Passing Average: 1st versus 1st Passer Rating: 2nd versus 3rd The biggest issue with the 2016 team was an average passing attack with a vanilla inside zone read scheme (Urban's Base Run Plays). The issue came against AP Ranked teams in 2016. OSU's QB rating dropped from 147 to 125. The average dropped from 7.5 to 6.1. OSU could not push the ball down field. Specifically, against top defenses in 2016 the passer rating was sub 100. Against a Clemson team, who didn't have to worry about the top of the defense getting taken off, they could condense the field. Basically OSU was playing in the redzone the entire length of the field.  Compare this to 2019, against ranked AP teams, the rating did drop, but its still at 177. OSU's average yards didn't drop, they are pushing the ball down the field very efficiently. If you look at the top defenses they have played this year, the passer rating was above 170 three times and still above 147 the other two times.  This passing game, at it's worse, is as good or just slightly better (since the average is higher) than the 2016 OSU team.  I will still claim that the OSU defense in that 2016 game balled out. They held Clemson to 75% under their normal scoring potential (points per play). If you consider that Clemson ran 85 plays to OSU's 56 plays, the score should have been in the mid 40's.  I go back to my previous post, in terms of getting sacks. That 2016 Clemson team didn't need to use a linebacker to get sacks or tackle for loss. They had three DL who had more than 6 sacks. The top two in tackle for loss were DL. Compared to the 2019 Clemson team, their primary sack guy is a linebacker. They have no DL guys with above 6 sacks this season.  Kinda why I don't foresee a repeat of the 2016 game. They are completely different teams. You have a current OSU team who passes the ball WAY better than the 2016 team. They can stretch the field extremely well. This current Clemson team don't have three world beaters on the D-Line like that 2016 team. 
    • Shot a 96 at The Honors Course. 141 slope from the 6400 tees. Probably the toughest golf course I've ever played. Classic Pete Dye. No bailouts, very penal. A few holes with OB or water on both sides. Gust of wind around 15-20 mph. Tough conditions with a stretch of 4 holes with wind directly in our faces.  Despite the score (16.9 handicap), I am ok with my round. Back 9 I had 5 pars and a bogey with an 8, 8, 7. If I can clean up some errant play off the tee and stop short siding myself on elevated greens, it gives me confidence that I can play any course pretty well.
