Set a new personal best on a shorter local track today(4932 yds). 81!  6 pars, 2 birdies and only 1 seven. 10 GIR and 40 putts.lol. Left myself some long putts today. Did sink a 25 footer to birdie a 535 yd par 5 (the second hardest hole on the course). 

 

Wonderful day. This comes just 1 week after a lesson,whole new grip and swing.

Wow, what a day today! Shot a 75 at Los Altos here in ABQ from the whites. Played absolutely lights-out! Stumbled a little on the front with a 40, but shot a 1-under 35 on the back. Had 5 birdies on the day, with 3 eagle putts! Also, gamegolf says my driver was on-point. More importantly for me though, is the iron play, as that has typically been my weakness. Hopefully can get out and play again this weekend. Will probably do some range/short game work if the weather goes to crap tomorrow.

83 yesterday, 84 today different course. 7/18 and 9/18 GIR respectively. 

struggling with 3W & 5W; laying off at top of swing resulting in some casting issues.

First 9 holes of the year. Atrocious. 53. The only club I hit well was my 54. I did hit my 5H okay out of some terrible lies. I had a case of the shanks. I haven't been able to get to the driving range at all for 3 weeks. It was a nice day and I needed to get out of the house.

Finally was able to get out with my golf group for the first time this year. We only played 9 on our home course which isn't even open yet so the greens were atrocious and the course was still pretty soggy. The work I put in in the off season has definitely payed off though ball striking was great aside from 4 shots that I remember. Had 5 GIR which is better than probably any 9 hole round I had last year and it felt easy like I knew I would hit the green when I had a wedge in my hand, definitely not a feeling I'm used to. That being said I left myself some long putts on a few holes and with the greens in the condition they were in just couldn't get down in 2 on the first 2. Other than that what killed me was I hit a really fat approach shot on the dogleg left par 4 5th that led to a bogey and went OB on 7, which is driveable, but OB left is about 5 yards off the fairway and I went about 20 yards left of it on my first shot lol I think I need to reassess my strategy on that hole and just play an iron off the tee. I finished pretty strong but again couldn't roll in a straight forward 7 foot birdie putt on 8. I had 3 make able birdie putts on 4,6 and 8 that I think come mid season I'd knock down at least 1 of them. Do that, knock off the 3 putts (never really been an issue) and play more conservative on 7 I think with how short and easy this 9 is I can hit my goal of shooting under par on it this year.

Despite the terrible score I came away optimistic. My buddy hit me up late yesterday and wanted to play we were short on time so we only played 9 showed up and went right to the first tee box which is something I never do. It was a course I have only played a couple times and it had been a few years it was very wet, not in great shape and about 35 degrees. I hit a lot of clubs I shouldn't have just not knowing the course and goddamn did I putt horribly. I felt like I couldn't have hit the ball any worse I topped 3 drives, fatted a 5 iron off the tee on 1 plus it was fairly windy and I don't have a rangefinder yet so my distance control on my wedges was atrocious. That being said a 45 was a fairly common score for me last year in good conditions I really don't think I could have played any worse so I hope this was my floor I was honestly a little surprised when I tallied it up at the end I thought I had to be much worse. I'm just dying for course conditions to improve and, ya know, this global pandemic to be taken care of so I can actually enjoy a real round of golf. Instead of that happening though the governor just shut down the state (apparently my job is essential so I still have to work) and we got 2 inches of snow last night soooo fml.

88.  Driver was working again 5th time in 6 rounds, and this is a new trend for me.  I sent two approach shots into the drink, and that really was the difference between the decent score I got and perhaps a great score.  I am becoming dissatisfied with bogeys.  With much fewer drives sailing into back yards and ponds, I feel like I have a shot at par on nearly every hole.

After the 78 on Friday, I shot an 80 on Saturday, an 81 yesterday, and an 82 today. I'm going the wrong way.

Taking tomorrow off, then another 6 days straight of golf.

79 today and felt awesome. New clubs really felt great. And in so glad to report that my putting/short game was the culprit rather than the f****** s*****. I actually had six birdie putts ...all under 8’ with 4 of them under 5’....and missed them all. Drives and irons were great and damn it felt nice! We’re using the pool noodles like other than places and one birdie putt lipped the right side. It was real tough to determine if it would’ve dropped if the noodle wasn’t there. It just barely rolled off the right edge and looked like it wobbled. But I considered it missed. But hey....great round!

Doing well Scott! Thanks for asking. I’m not going to do any heavy lifting but so far I can swing liberally. I’m back to doing the Venetos swing. Working well for me.🙂

Shot 69 yesterday on the last day the courses will be open until at least April 11.

First round in a month. I had a tooth become infected and I almost ended up in the hospital. Had to have surgery to drain the infection, it was bad.

    • Had to get working again. Video isn’t the best spot. Main point of work is to get rid of the lean into the ball, because it causes imbalance and other issues. Not sure why I thought of it this way, but my feel was to simply jump/post my left leg around impact. To go with this, I am continuing the work of flattening my take away. Going to try and work hard this winter (although I have kid #2 due in a month so who knows). Putting, I started by changing my grip to get away from the last stroke. I grabbed a meter long level to use as guide for creating more arc in the putt. I definitely was pushing out as I brought the club back. So, arc both ways and fine tuning the aim. I’ve always noticed that when I use the line of the ball, that I feel it’s aimed way left. Thus, could be a source of the push that has been happening occasionally. So trust the line and arc it. Definitely need to practice but initial results are positive. 
    • I play vokey SM8 wedges and Wilson C300 forged irons. Love my clubs and wouldn't change a thing about them.  I hit alot of balls. Probably about 200 range balls and 170 play balls per week.  I sharpen my grooves every 8 weeks but I imagine the excessive amount of hard range balls will wear the clubs out over time.  When is it time to get new clubs? 
    • New York Declares State of Emergency as Vaccine Mandate Chaos Looms Tens of thousands of hospital workers are likely to be fired on Monday when the state’s vaccine mandate kicks in. State data shows that 84 percent of the state’s 450,000 hospital workers are vaccinated, along with 83 percent of its 145,400 nursing home workers. Even still, that means as many as 94,000 workers are unvaccinated, leaving a potentially dire shortfall in workers from Monday.
