Just finished LSW, great info.  Now I just need to apply it so I can claim a few achievements for actually shooting lower scores.

Broke 80 today with a 79. Almost completed the "no sixes" challenge too, missed by one hole.

I'm very new to the forum so, I don't know if I'm eligible to receive credit for accomplishments in the recent past. But, here goes:

 

On February 20, 2020, after competing through and winning six matches, I won our club Men's Match play Championship for 2020.  

On June 14, 2020 I recorded my first (and so far only) Eagle. It was on our 18th hole here at Panther Run Golf Course. I was 87 yards out for my third (approach shot). I struck a perfect approach wedge that landed onto the green, bounced once and rolled into the cup for my Eagle 3.

 

Fairways and Greens,

Frank

Broke 80 today again, with a 78, and got the no-sixes this time.

Rare combo of winter tees and hard, dry course led to my first eagle today.  Does it still count coming on winter tees?

#5 on Forrest E Everhart Memorial Golf Course. Scorecard claims 500 yards, but I bet it was about 450.

    • I play my best when I have a specific plan for each shot. That means a specific target and ball flight. Then after the shot let go of the result and plan for the next one. Its hard to execute consistent shot making without actually planning for it.  Instead of "hit the fairway" it's "hit it at the top palm frond of that tree at the end of the fairway with a small draw."    
    • Day 7 (14 Jun 21) - Brought the net out today (thanks to the grandson and his persistence to hit into it).  Decided to work on the grip, especially the right (trail) hand.  Worked with 3w, the club I tend to either chunk or top the most.  1/2 - 3/4 swing length with a sweep through the ball, making solid contact - of course into a net its all about hitting the target panel.  Been fighting the part of me that wants to swing "hard" as I can to impress no one.  Laughingly I am reminded of my co-ed softball days in the '80's - I knew I could not hit the homerun, but I could pretty much put it where I wanted.  Maybe that's the key - making solid, controlled contact and let whatever distance happens happen.   
    • I would say I'm spotty on this. I approach practice with specific things to work on but ultimately it's random WHAT I'm working on, and totally based on my level frustration from the previous round. I'm definitely not systematic right now. Part of the challenge is I've found it difficult to find instructors that are systematic and methodical.
    • Ah but you must have some really good great shot memories....... My first great shot memory was holing out for a 2 on the 18th hole of the Maxwell Air Force Base golf course. I had been golfing about 3 years and this was the first place I ever took golf lessons. I remember watching the ball land, bounce, and then hop right in the hole. I kept the ball for years...
    • Keep two score cards. On the first score card, record your actual score. On the second card, keep your score for your competition with him. If he shaves two strokes off his score, shave two off yours. Repeat for each hole. and at the end give him your "adjusted" score.  Turnabout is fair play.
