Welcome Pingman. You will like it here. I played reasonably well this weekend.

On Saturday, I hit three balls OB off the tee and each time I followed with a great shot for my third. The best came on a 205 yard par 3. I hooked the first one badly. My third hit the mound on the right side of the green and kicked left. It hit the flag an stopped 6 feet away. I made the bogey putt.

I also hit a great tee shot on the 175 yard 18th. I put a 6 iron to 8 feet and made my only birdie of the day.

I hit a 4-iron from 190 out of some weird rough, over a fairly tall tree, and to about 8 feet for birdie. Tough putt (well above the hole), but I had a tap-in par after hitting one of the worst drives of my life.

370yd drive on a 411yd Par 4. 10-15mph wind going with the hole, fairways are pretty hard this time of year. I had a niceeeee draw as well. I still pared the hole tho

According to the course yardage, I hit a 340-yard drive yesterday and reached a par 5 in two with a hybrid from a downhill, sidehill lie. Then I three-putted for par, but don't get me started on the greens I played yesterday.

The best shot I hit all day actually suffered fate at the hands of those greens: it ended up 35 feet from the pin on a par 3 after hitting it perfectly.

Then in the group behind me, a guy bladed the ball, it bounced and rolled around this cup surrounding the green (rough), rolled onto the green, nearly went in, and stopped 3 feet below the pin. This particular green was sloped to the point where if they cut the green any lower, you'd simply not be able to keep a ball on the green anywhere with any stroke, unless it found the cup.

I hit a good drive and needed a birdie. I had 129 in, with some uncertain wind. I decided to grip down a little on an 8-iron and play a punchy little cut.

The shot came off perfectly. Put it to three feet. Tapped in for birdie to get back to square.

Wasn't such a spectacular shot except it came off exactly as I pictured it. Exactly - the feel, the trajectory, the spin, everything.

Mine happened yesterday, put my tee shot right, behind a little tree, got my 7 iron, closed the club face, full backswing, cut off the follow through because of the tree. Was about 2 feet off the ground bounced just before the green then rolled down the green to about 15 foot from the hole, put my putt about a foot away and knocked it in for par.

Had two this week that were memorable. Dogleg right and the right side was protected by large oak trees. The tee is elevated some and I hit my driver over the trees and 60 yds from the green. My wedge shot was on the green but in the front and the hole was in the back some 60 ft away. Canned it and made birdie. Those two shots, the driver and putt were real sweet.

I played 87 holes in three days, so there were actually quite a few. There were also as many, OK more bad ones that I would like to forget about. The best ones came in a two hole stretch on Saturday afternoon.

The 12th Hole on the Donald Ross Memborial is a replica of a Par 3 at Detroit Golf club. It is 159 yards and slightly down hill. I put my tee shot to 12 feet and made the birdie putt for closest to the pin and a team skin.

The 13th hole is a replica of number 15 at Seminole Golf Club in Palm Beach. It is a 500 yard par five with an elevated tee and and elevated green. My tee shot went about 270. I put a three wood to just off the front fringe. My eagle putt missed by three feet, but I made the birdie putt. Not too bad. Two holes and two birdies all on my ball in a scramble. It put about $40 in my pocket. Unfortunately, there were enough bad ones to take about $140 out.

I actually had a few good ones. I hit a pitch shot from 30 yards out on a 320 yard par 4 that missed eagle by less than a foot. I had a 120 yard wedge into a severely elevated green land 10' from the cup. The best though was a 30' par put that I drained after a terrible pitch shot.

PLayed on Saturday and had my best shot-maiking round of the year -shame my putting didn't equal it.

The stand-outs were on the 3rd (our 12th for the day), it's was aplying 128mtrs into a slight wind, pin cut behind a bunker on the right. I decided to play a high draw aiming at the pin and hoping to land it a couple of metres to the left of it. Worked as planned and left a 15 foot left to right breaker, which I managed to die into the hole for my only birdie of the round.

The 4th is stroke hole 2, I hit a 3 wood to the right of the fairway and left myself about 140 mtrs, pin was cut on the front left so I decided to aim at the pin and hit a high fade - again worked as planned and I flushed a 7 iron for my best strucck shot of the round. Unfortunately I left the putt about 4 feet short and missed the 2nd for an ugly 3 putt......proceeded to par in from there hitting every GIR on the front nine in the process.

Ummm well first I will describe the hole...

It is a 444 yard par 4

I hit a push cut with the driver.... and was in rough on the right hand side... about 155 yards out

I elected to hit my 8 Iron... which I pulled to the left and long

I found my ball to be on a severe down slope about 10 yards off the green... and 30 yards to the pin... there was a double break....

So I elected to pull out the lob wedge... and just tried nipping at it... and catching as much of the ball as I could because of the slope. It hit about 15 in front of the pin... and then rolled the rest of the way right into the cup.... yeah the lob wedge is a POS... I never got any spin off it ...so I just switched to the spin milled... all shall be well

    • I game the Ping I3 o-size irons. Think they came out in '99. I have 2-L but only the 4-L is in my bag. I did just get the Ping G400+ driver so I'm getting modernish lol. 
    • My main goal this year is to get in better shape. I have a pretty good program set for myself and can measure this by keeping a journal recording prigress and by how I feel. I'm taking the marathon and not a sprint mentality and give myself the year. My second goal is just swing my swing. I've been that person that jumps from method to method and when I stear clear of this I play my best golf. I can attain this by staying clear of going down rabbit holes and practice with purpose. Scores will be how I measure staying on the right track. I'll give this the lengthy (haha) golf season we get here in MN to finally get to consistent bogey golf at worst. 
    • I'm a bit taller, but also fall into the group where standard just basically fits me. I've tinkered with different, but standard does it.  I guess like a 42L in a suit jacket, huh? But I sorta know what you mean... Here's how I'd look at it. Definitely those are good clubs, it's not that they're fitting you into some strange edge case.  The S300 are solid quality shafts, again, not some fancy $$$ custom. And as far as the lie, maybe better to stay standard, and see if that works and then if it's really just not working, always the option to tweak the lie later. Can you talk to the fitter, and just say your worried about the lie, and get an agreement from them to tweak it if you decide to later. Would that help you feel more comfortable with the whole thing. FWIW and I know just anecdotal, one of the best players in my league just got those irons, loves them.  
    • Day 3: Played 9 this morning. Another streak of no penalty strokes/lost balls. Shot 41, and hit the ball pretty well tee to green. Short game was better but still had some poor shots (thin/bladed pitch shots), so need to put in a little more practice to sharpen up and get back to my previous level. We moved fast enough that I was able to get through holes 10-13 before heading home, so I treated these as on-course practice opportunity.
