What'd You Shoot Today?

Yesterday I shot an even par 72(sr tees). Front side was just average for me as I had 4 bogeys and 1 birdie for a 39. Backside I had 3 birdies and shot 33. So a jekyll and hyde round but my best score of the year. Funny how it goes.....after the front side I was thinking if I could break 80 for the day I would be satisfied. But everyone in my group was playing well so I think that rubbed off on me. Taking the day off.....don't want to follow with an 85. Ha.

Played Pinehurst #8 today.  We started on the 10th hole, so split tees.  Played the White tees at just over 6300 yards.  Started out with 3 pars then missed the green on the 1st par 3 but then I chipped and holed out for my 1st birdie. Ended up with a 1 over 37 on the back nine.  We had great rhythm going then dead stop!  A 25 minute wait on the 1st tee.  I hate it when this happens!  Kills all momentum, at least for me it does. Bogeyed 2 of the 1st three holes but settled down a bit and finished with a 39 for a round of 76.  The back I had only 11 putts with the one hole out.  Front nine just 14 putts.  Short game saved the round. Hit 9/14 fairways, and only 5 GIR’s.   Lots of par saves 11 one putts, 2 birdies overall (one was a chip).

Shot an 85 today, lowest score relative to par at +13. Played the whites with my buddy from high school, course was around 6300 yards. My driver is getting the adapter repaired so I used the 3 wood all round, and it was money for me. Kept the ball in play and only missed about 3 fairways and even they weren't laying bad. Its tough leaving the driver out of the bag when I go with my regular group as they're all single digits and play from the blues or the tips. Still can't swallow my pride and play up when they play back, even though I know I probabaly should. Golfs way more fun when you aren't taking long irons into every single green.

80 (41-39) today. Played in the heat of the afternoon. Normally play early mornings. Just couldn't get it going. 3 putted 4 or 5 greens. Difference in putting mornings versus late afternoons. Not to mention, the heat just takes everything out of you. 93 degrees, feel like 107.

Tidy enough 86 off the tips(with zero warm up hits !!) ...was happy to PAR the 4x Par-3 on the local course first time I've achieved that off the TIPS

all parts of the game were working not always great(some dumb putts but finally my first game in some time I did have confidence from putting too the driver..just need to fine tune some of the stupid stuff out and I'll break 80 again soon

Went to the same course as yesterday and shot an 88. Missed 11 par saves which obviously doesn't tell the whole story, about 4 of them were from duffed, or thinned iron shots leaving me a ways in so it wasn't a short game issue for some of them. The vast majority though were from chips, and short pitches just rolling forever. So many aspects of the game I need to work on. Went off the tee with the 3 wood again today and only a couple really got away from me, but stayed in played so I can't complain.

Shot 107, on home course.  First round with Arccos sensors, so I have stats!

- 0 GIR

- 5 nGIR

- 2.22 putts per hole

Most shots lost on poor tee shots or second shots getting me into trouble spots .  A few duffed shots too.

Looking at the strokes gained/lost analysis - only 5/18 tee shots were "average", one was better than average, and the rest were poor.  SImilarly, because the tee shots often got me into trouble, my second shots were often poor - only two average shots, the rest poor.

Oh, the wheels have come off. I feel sorry for my teammates in the games the last 2 days. Shot an 88 yesterday, with 1 birdie, but 7 double bogeys. Today was almost as bad with an 84. Tomorrow is practice, with a match play on Monday.

84 at Totteridge. It’s a Rees Jones designer course bout 45 min east of Pittsburgh. Hadn’t played in week and a half and the rust showed on the greens. 3 jacked 3 greens on my way to a 37 putt round. My only 3 one putt greens were kick in birds when I stuck wedges in tight. Happy to make 3 birds in the round but I took a triple on the 2nd and made a double at 17. Overall drove it well. Hit some good iron shots but made a few mistakes. Certainly could have been a 78 or so.

Shot 89 today. Hit driver really well, and had 13 GIR/nGIR, so ball striking was okay. Had two holes where I was +7 which cost me a chance at a better score. My miss on each +2 or worse was a big block out to the right, totaling 5 penalty strokes. Left a bunch of putts short today too, which made for some nervy par putts.

Nothing if not consistent - another 107 on the home course - this time from the forward tees - no difference in score.  Stats:

- 4 GIR

- Further 3 nGIR

- Putting 2.44

Hit four fairways, rather than three.  Putting not as good.  7/18 tee shots were average or better.  Still, that's 34 over, and yesterday was 37 and I'm currently 41.... so going in the right direction.

I played my best round/front 9 of 2020 today with a 78 (72.9/141). I was on fire in the front - scored a 35 with 4 birds and 3 pars, but once I realized I was playing well on hole 13, it got to my head and everything went downhill🙄

It’s also my first time playing with the new SIM Max Rocket 3 and oh my, it is now my favorite club besides my driver!

Trying to figure out if it's time to hang it up for a break, or to play through it. Shot a really ugly 92 today on the home course. I just can't figure out what's going on. Have to play my match play match tomorrow. I guess I'll figure out what I'm going to do after that.

Shot a 93 today. Nice round for me on a course that I struggled to break 100 on. Driver woke up and putter was on.  Still losing too many balls and approach shots needs to be closer to the pin.

90 at Park Ridge.  I missed 7/8 putts from 5-7 feet.  Most days, my mind is just not into putting unless there is something at stake. It is atrocious.  I like Park Ridge a lot because there are six par 5s and four of them are only guarded by elevation.  Just a lot of fun to go it on these holes.  Hurricane last week, then got like a 95 or something at an easy course the week before and a scramble the week before that where I could not do anything right.  My swing is going decidedly backwards atm.

Shot my best round in 20 years yesterday. 

40-43 = 83 at Carrington GC in Monroe, MI. 

Parred the first 4 holes and birdied that last 2! I had three 3-putt bogies too. Best I've been able to strike the ball in two decades. A lot of practice paying off.

    • Okay, I was just trying to spare us all the slideshow. But, I'll be sure to include the link in the future. 
    • So you can do what you did and add head weight to counter the grip weight. You can find lighter midsize grips, which obviously isn't always a viable option. You can also find shafts with more tip heavy balance points. You could also add a little length to the club to get that weight back. All these options have pros and cons. My personal feeling on SW is that it's mainly about getting a consistent feel through your irons and wedges. I don't care about matching woods, hybrids, putters to an iron SW. Most important for me is a smooth weight progression through the set so each club is getting heavier moving from driver to wedges. The simplest option is start out with just the new grips and no additional weight at the tip. Use whatever iron you want, and hit some balls with impact stickers, foot spray powder, dry erase marker on balls, launch monitor, etc, to look at your impact pattern. Then start adding some lead tape to the back and repeat the process. At some point you should find your consistency is at it's best and adding or taking away weight from that point is detrimental. Then just add the same amount to the rest (remembering head weight influences longer clubs more than shorter so you may want to shave a gram or two off in the longer irons vs. the shorts). Only other thing to look out for if you add weight to the clubs is how you hit them at the end of the round when you are tired compared to the start of the round. Most people can handle an 130g shaft for the first 5-10 swings, but not necessarily by the end of the round.
    • Have you ever gotten a club fitting? I also launch the ball lower than ideal and part of that is my swing, part of that was the shaft I was playing. I wonder if changing to a higher lofted driver will cause you to hit the ball with more spin and you wouldn't see any gains in distance.

    • I thought I saw that picture in a post office. Other than that, nothing controversial. I do celebrate the comments on how there is a place in golf for a wide variety of swings. That has made a comeback and this golf fan appreciates the diversity and individuality of the looks.
