    • Sounds to me like the OP is over swinging on par fives. Trying too hard, so to speak. Playing the 5s differently than the 3s, and 4s due to the longer yardages involved.  I might suggest thinking of the 5s as just a longer 4. Anything to approach the 5s like the other two shorter holes as far as the mental aspect goes.  I know when I play a 5, most of the time I go with 2, or 3 easy 3 wood swings. A close wedge stroke, and 1 putt for par.  The averages posted on the 3s, and 4s suggests that the OP has a decent full swing, shorter swing, and putting game. Perhaps just taking it easy, and getting on the green in 4 on those 5s, will save a stroke. Write down a 6, instead of 7 for now, while working towards writing down a 5.   
    • Wonder if Koepka caught TGC last night. If so, he would have heard Chamblee say he didn’t think Koepka could beat McIlroy this week. 
    • When the second caveman started playing, slow play was invented.
    • The way I play, my anti-handicap would probably be 10-15 shots higher than my handicap. Since I started playing again after getting my shoulder fixed, I've played what can only be called schizophrenic golf.
    • I used to have a couple lessons at the beginning of every season when I was growing up in Kentucky. That was something I learned from reading books by Jack Nicklaus, where he said he went to Jack Grout before every season to set himself up properly. It sounded like good advice back then. Now that I live in the sunshine and can play all year long, I take an occasional lesson when I realize I'm consistently doing something wrong. I recently went to my pro over hitting so many chunked, fat shots. He fixed me pretty quickly. (My swing must have looked really ugly)  Now, I realize I've bladed a lot of shot chip shots and I'm about to go talk to him again.
