  1. What's impressive about this for me is that you shaved so many strokes off of the back 9. That is usually where fatigue becomes a factor for me, and I start to blow up after about the 12th hole of play. At that price, hopefully you can rack up some serious course time over the next few weeks of quality daylight
  2. Went and played for the first time since mid July (finished up grad school FINALLY) Shot a 47 on a quick 9 hole round. Drove the ball straight (but not very far). My second shot was money today, which is usually where I struggle. I had a 5ft birdie putt that I PED'd into next week. I had to sink a 15 footer to save par. Then I proceeded to stink it up on the putting green for the remainder of the afternoon. Even with an average putting day, I could've shaved an easy 3-5 strokes off my score. I couldn't figure out the flatstick. Felt good to get back out there after a little hiatus.
  3. I have used a claw grip to putt for the last 12-18 months. I feel very comfortable with this style of grip. I currently game an Odyssey White Hot XG #9 putter. In typical club-ho fashion, I have been lurking around my local golf retailers and playing around with some of the new stuff. I really like the feel of the new line of Odyssey Tank putters, but I was wondering if the claw grip is still a feasible option with the counterbalance style putters? While at the golf shops, I played around with both the claw and standard grips. The standard grip actually felt pretty good. Correct me if I
  4. My driving has been really good my last few times out. I have started teeing the ball up really high (in comparison to how I teed my balls before) and I have seen a tremendous increase in distance and accuracy. I would top a lot of my drives and hit these scud missile shots that would fly low to the ground and roll out. Now I'm actually getting a nice pretty flight. My fairway woods and hybrids have been straighter. Not the distance I'd like, but I'm not having to go into search mode immediately upon impact with the ball LOL. My iron play has been incredibly erratic. I can't explain it. M
  5. So a few weeks ago, I shot my first sub-100 round with a score of 99. I went back to that same course on June 26 and shot a 100. Well, I went back yesterday (been in New Orleans for a week) and played awful for the first 9 holes. I shot a 60 through the front 9. I swear to you that I was THISCLOSE to walking off the course. I was absolutely livid. I went into the pro shop and used the bathroom and took a big drink of water... I couldn't make this stuff up...I shot a 42 on the back 9. I began with 4 straight pars and was +6 on the back 9. I couldn't believe it. I'm not an 84 golfer. At least
  6. I was always told/taught that you pick it up on "double par". That's NOT double bogey! Double par keeps you moving. Now that I'm tracking my scores, I tend to play em out regardless Par 3...max score = 6 Par 4...max score = 8 Par 5...max score = 10
  7. Friday, June 5th. FINALLY...after several attempts, I finally cracked 100! I shot a 99, and that was with a freakin 4 putt on the final hole (don't ask). My drives stayed in the fairway or barely into the first cut. My approach shots were landing near the green, and I even had some GIRs. When I did miss the green, I landed some nice pitch shots. My putting was abysmal. I 4 putted once, and 3 putted a few times. I had a streak of like 7 holes where I shot par or bogey. Then I had some "explosive" holes. I finished the round thinking that I could've been much closer to 90 if I putted worth damn.
  8. I got a great deal on a Nike Covert 2.0 for 125 bucks. I play with a guy who has a Cobra Bio Cell, and he LOVES it. And he BOOMS the ball
  9. I just downloaded the Game Golf app on my phone. At first, I didn't want to download it because I figured I would need the Game Golf device (the belt attachment and club sensors), but this seemed to work really well without em. It tracked my shots and was pretty easy to use. I still think I prefer Hole 19, but I was thoroughly impressed with the Game Golf app as well
  10. another vote for Hole 19... they just launched an android version a few months ago after only having an iPhone version for the longest
  11. I have some Oakley Flak Jacket XLJs with the G30 lenses and I love them. My dad gave me some flak (pun intended) about wearing them while playing, claiming that I was "going Hollywood" on him, but I struggle with major eye fatigue and really dry eyes when the wind blows even a little bit. The sunglasses help with both issues. And they look damn good!!
  12. Even before I begin, I already realize that this is going to sound like a commercial... So I just completed a 3-day golf school at the Dana Rader Golf School in charlotte. It was all day Friday, all day Saturday, and half a day on Sunday. It was an amazing experience, and they don't spend a ton of time trying to completely overhaul your swing. Instead, their philosophy is to take your swing and focus on one or two adjustments. I will admit that it seemed kinda corny at first, but results are results. It was probably 80% on course and 20% classroom, but part of that was likely due to the unsea
  13. Okay, so I have floated in and out of this thread since the beginning. And I have heard of Game Golf on a number of occasions. But this was the first time that I actually clicked on one of those links where it shows how your round was recorded...SUPER FREAKING COOL!! Welp, I know what I'm going to be purchasing next!
  14. +1 on the Hole19 app. It's now available on android but I never had any issues on my iPhone
