Another miserable failed weekend.... four 6s on front 9...:pound:

I am supposed to be getting better. I felt good yesterday going in with a great warm up. Just felt completely out of sorts as soon as got on the course and took my address for the 1st tee shot which I usually play with a lot of confidence. 

Only good - had only 2 par 4 bogeys and all pars on the back 9, but had already blown it by then.

I love this challenge. It is my goal in life.

I have felt all season that I was getting close, and was 8 holes on the way Saturday, until a lost ball on 9. Blind second shot- I heard the ball hit what I thought was green or fringe. When I got there, there was a ball, but not mine! Wouldn't have mattered as the back nine was a roller coaster.

I will post again when I actually claim it.

The challenge was "in your head"!

I know it was in mine, but after a six on the very first hole the challenge went away, I was able to relax and play my game, and shot fairly well the rest of the round.

Last four rounds I've gone without having a 6 on my card.

Played today and never put myself in a position where 6 was much of a possibility. Hit the driver really solid.

@Buckeyebowman, that is absolutely fine. All goals/challenges are 'in your/our head'. If challenges 'make' me hit bad shots then I might as well give up on this challenge now. I don't know about you but I don't plan for brain farts. If I lose my swing, I just gotta find it.

There's another 'mental game' thread for this type of stuff, so back to topic for me now..

Played 3 rounds this last weekend. 

79-76-72 (Par 72). All of the rounds have at least one 6 or more. 

On the 72 round i was 2 under thru 16, bogied 17th and on 18th I 3 putted from 30 feet.
But i also bogied 2 Par 5´s before, both with 3 putts from 25 feet.
From this distances i always try to lag the putt, never try to sink them, this weekend the greens were slow, maybe that´s way i couldn´t lag well. 

This challenge it´s getting hard to achieve.

Played this past weekend and took a 9 on the second hole par 5.  Oops. The challenge did not last long that day.

Played another round with one six on the card: on #17, a par 5, I pushed my second shot into the next fairway right and the third shot was a tad short going over the tallest tree in line with the flag, ricocheted right across the cart path, hole high. A good pitch left me about 8 feet short and still hole high, and the putt barely missed on the low side. I shot 79 (+9) with 9 pars and 9 bogeys...

This challenge is not that easy and I am glad I already claimed the award: I still thrive to succeed in that challenge every round as it is improving my course management and overall likelihood of a lower score.

For the first time in a long time played without a 6 today. Wasn't my lowest score of the season (81, wasn't even close to lowest), but played with the no sixes mentality and prevented any big numbers.

Shot a 76 this past Saturday with 0 6s. Nothing really spectacular. The biggest highlight I had was making 3 successful punch outs (with my 6i). I got some lucky bounces with my driver (still fighting some demons with that club), but everything else was pretty boring golf...haha. I made a birdie on 7 and gave it right back on 8. I never could really get my approach shots close enough to have good birdie putts.

With all that being said, this was from the white tees where I play with Jacob sometimes. I try to vary my tees from round to round..

My best round this week didn't win the challenge.   81 with 2 holes that missed.   That's about as good as it gets without much more practice.

Another fail. Today's round, second hole I remembered the challenge. Par five and I was 78 yards from the hole in 2. Got a flyer from the semi-rough and went over the green and failed to get up and down. Made another one on the 3rd hole and then again on the 10th. Shot 77 on a course I didn't know and the pins were cut pretty tight to the edges a lot, so the rest of it wasn't awful. Next time maybe!

Congrats! BTW you can get other awards here:

79 with 2 sixes last week, 80 with none this week.  Go figure.  Just a bunch of bogies, but never even close to a 6.

Congrats.

So do you want the award, or are you waiting to do it from your normal tees?

I’ll wait until I play the back tees again.

Missed the no sixes challenge by one hole both my Friday fourball and my Saturday match. The Friday one was a hole I picked up on ... I would have easily made an 8 if I had finished. On Saturday, my 6 was a hole I hit a poor drive on, but got onto the green for a par putt. Which was probably 60 feet away from the hole. So I 3 putted, which isn't awful from that distance. But, it was still an ugly 3 putt because I was nowhere near the hole after the first putt. I came up probably 15 feet short. Bleh.

Avoided making a 6 my previous two rounds. Didn't do it today but still shot 69 ;-) Hit it OB on a par 5 and made double, only over par hole of the day.

    • First, welcome to TST, @maritamm I'm with @billchao, I think a discussion with the manager and a few of the concerned league members would be a good starting point.  She certainly doesn't like the feelings of frustration she's been going through over the cancellations, and probably doesn't realize that she may be a factor in causing them with the way she's running the scheduling.  If you can talk things over, you might come to a better understanding of one another. Separately, I find that I enjoy playing with "other" people.  I play with the same group of friends most weekends, so I'm very open to playing with different members on our Tuesday evening Men's league.  
    • From my personal experience, When you spend that much money on a round of golf, it is nice to experience the entire club, not just the course.  I know during the 4-6 hours of golf you may want some food at the turn, or drinks/apps/meal after. If they cant keep the kitchen clean, doesnt say much for "first class"
    • That's actually a fairly common issue. Hybrids tend to have more offset and they kind of look like woods so people can end up setting up and aiming differently with them than their iron counterparts. Not necessarily. They're designed with a lower CoG to launch the ball higher, they're more forgiving, and they're usually slightly longer than the irons they're meant to replace. Plus if your index is accurate, you're likely not hitting the equivalent irons well enough to really know how far they should be going anyway. Probably. 20g is a significant difference in weight. Whether it would be a good change for you, you'd probably want to see a good clubfitter for. If you have an adjustable hosel on your hybrid you can just buy a shaft to try out, but it would probably cost just as much as a session with a fitter who could tell you definitively what setup works best for you. If you don't have an adjustable hosel, then self-fitting would end up costing a good amount of money if you had to pay someone to re-shaft your clubs.
    • Reason why I was disappointed is he started off one shot back on the day, then it looked like the run was on with holes 9, 10, 11. Then on Hole 12 approach he hooked his approach into the sand, which torpedoed his chances. Then that got into his head a little and he hit another bad shot, bogeying 12. It was disappointing because it killed the run, and pretty much took him out of the competition. By the time 18 rolled around, he was ready to get off the course.  I am pretty sure he'll put it all together one of these majors though. He's been playing pretty well this year, and now has notched strong appearances in both majors and a few other tourneys. Finau will be back! 
    • I think it has a lot to do with your physical characteristics, i.e., are you very tall, short, long arms, short arms, etc. as to whether or not you need a fitting right now. I was fit years ago for a set of Pings and everything was standard but the lie angle, (I was a blue dot, just off the standard black dot), but I didn't see that small adjustment in lie angle making any difference, (I'm 6.0' and I guess standard for everything else). But as said above if you get a free fitting when purchasing a set of clubs why not?  Are you thinking about buying a new set? If you're thinking about altering your current set then you definitely need a fitting.
