Recommended Posts

My best shot of the week was in a scramble. Par 3 210 yards slightly down hill. Kind of mis hit a 3 iron but it landed about 4 feet from the pin. We birdied the hole and went on to finish at 8 under....Which put us in 4th place. Did I mention that it was raining all day..

Best shot of the week was my second on a par five. I had about 195 to the hole and I hit a high fade with my 5 wood to about 12 feet from the pin. Then I went on to make the putt for eagle.

My best shot of the week came today on a long par 3. So long that I usually hit a nice, easy 5 wood rather than a long iron. I hit a beautiful shot with my 5 wood, landed it in front of the green, and rolled it to within a foot of the cup. Left myself an easy kick in for my second birdie of the 9 hole round.

Perfectly placed 5-iron off the tee to 40 yards on a 259 yard par-4 with a very protected green. Chipped a 40-yard sand wedge 30 feet to the right of the pin, feed it down to the hole to two inches for a bird. My twenty-something playing partner decided to go for it, landed in the trees long and left, hit a branch and bounced out followed by a flubbed chip and a two-putt for par. I love when a 5-iron off the tee trumps driver.

Best shot this week has to be my drive today on #16 ... par 5. Had a 20+ mph breeze helping and launched one 283 - far and away a personal best for this ole' hacker!!

Best shot of the week came yesterday (the only day I played this week). Hit my t-ball into the lateral water hazard on a short 320 yard par 4. Took my drop and hit a 9 iron about 3 feet fom the hole....made the putt for a par.

160 yard par 3, hooked my tee shot into the woods. Had an okay lie, and about a 10' wide and 10' high shot to the right side of the green. Hit a 4-iron punch that I thought had gone too high, but somehow made it through the trees and just past the green. Did not make the bogey putt after chipping on, but a beautiful shot IMO for a 35 handicapper to give myself a chance.

This shot came yesterday. My tee shot ended up on a severe side-hill lie and the ball was easily 1 foot below my feet. I was 140 out and the pin was back right, so I took a 9-iron (one extra club for me) and aimed at the left side of the green. The ball faded all the way back and landed back there and stopped 3 feet from the hole. Made the birdie too

It was a 510yd par 5, dogleg left. After a long tee shot that fell into the rough on the left, I was left with a 200yd second shot with an almost 90 degree turn into the green. I couldn't see the green from where I was. I was with my friend and he told me to chip it out into the fairway so I could have a look at the green. I instead told him that I was going to hook it around the dogleg. I grabbed my 4-Iron and hit a perfect hook that turned right around the corner and rolled 10 feet from the hole. (I missed the eagle putt BTW.)

-OR-

400yd Par 4, hit a pretty solid drive down the middle and was left with a 9-Iron into the green. I missed it to the left and was left with a 20yd chip with a hard left-to-right break on a downhill slope. I took out my 52* and hit a bump and run that rolled slowly down the hill and gently dropped in the hole for birdie.

Actually had 3 on one hole! Hole #9 305 yard par 4, I hit a perfect 5 iron to middle of fairway leaving me 110 to back pin location. Had to navigate over a bunker so I used my 50* slightly open face, easy 3/4 swing and put it to 6 feet from the hole. Determined, I sunk the birdie putt to make the turn on a good note.

the 18th par 3 180 yards ball went right of the green and sat on top of the bunker (not in it lol) so i must have been about 15 yards from the pin took my 60 degree wedge (aimed to flop it onto the green and let it dribble to the flag) no i end up with a slight thin ball flys towards the flag ... hit the flag then straight into the hole lol

Today I had a 20 yard pitch that rolled in after breaking about 3 feet for birdie. The cool part was it did exactly what I had envisioned. I have been using the technique that is shown in the quickie pitching video thread on here as I've found it works really well. I was shown this when I went to the S&T; school in Erie earlier this year.

Later in the same round I just missed another birdie from a bunker shot that came up two inches short of the hole. Would have a been a first for me to hole out twice in one round like that.

Mine was Sunday on a 190 yar par 3. It was raining hard so a lot of people were waiting in the halfway house. The group in front of me asked if I wanted to go past them as I was alone.

Got on the teebox, pulled out my 3 hybrid and composed myself as I knew that about 12 people were watching... took a practice swing that left a nice divot and gained some confidence. I went on to hit one of the straightest hybrid hit I'd ever had. Ball landed on the wet green and barely rolled, it laid a few feet from the hole. From the teebox the flag stick was straight through the ball and everyone was like "Oooohhh" ;D

Pretty good for a high handicapper like myself.

    • Day 85: A bit of putting practice after getting home from a long travel day. 
    • I am still searching for a “drop in handicap.” My game seems to be improving but I am still not scoring lower. Can’t explain it.
    • I remember going through those types of situations. A combination of perhaps a fear of damaging the beautiful turf and not having some taller grass to support the ball up off the solid ground. Hitting out of the rough allows more leeway or room for error. during one such period I went to the range and spent quite a while brushing the turf between each shot to get familiar with what I had to work with and get comfortable with a tight lie. eventually you will come to realize that it really comes down to developing a consistent low point to the swing through lots of practice. 
    • Day 116 (23 Oct 21) - worked w/putter and straight edge.  Used both the DF992 and White Steel #5 - big difference in feel.  Drills were to overcome the push I tend to see.  More work needed, but the straightedge does provide the right feedback. 
    • I have been playing on a couple of inexpensive courses to learn , I played on an expensive country club course today and the fairways were in better condition than the greens at the courses I usually play. Very short grass.   I had a very very hard time hitting off these fairways ,  I had been getting into a groove on the lesser courses and my play was rapidly improving with my off fairway approach game being the best part of my game. I went from hitting at least 10 80 to 100 yard shots in a round onto the green from the fairway to hitting maybe 3 of 13 of them today. My hits were a medley of ground balls , tops, and other disasters.    The only grass range I have access to has very coarse rough type grass , should I just practice taking some exaggerated divots on it ? I read about playing a tee 8” or so in front of the ball to practice hitting ahead of it. Open to any other suggestions. Today was humbling.
