    I Quit College Golf

    Thank you. I appreciate your comments and tend to agree with you. I finished school, just not my senior golf season. I think it was a combination. We didn't have a coach who knew what he was doing so trying to reach what I thought my potential was, under no guidance, burnt me out. I think the PGA and us as casual golfers are separate. If you're on the PGA, it's a grind. But if you are playing well, then you are able to make it fun. You shouldn't play if you don't have fun.

    I Quit College Golf

    And I don't miss it at all. Some of you may remember me from the year's prior as I would go hole-by-hole through each tournament round that I played because I enjoyed doing that I would do school tournaments and summer events that I played in. Then after our last event last year I was frustrated that I wasn't getting better. (Doesn't help when most people on this board know more than our coach.) So, I quit. My last round was on October 1st. I was spent grinding over trying to play well when I really had no direction on the team. The most instruction that I got was on this board over the last few years and I still got down to a 2.2. I want to go out and have fun while I play. Even summer events, I did those just for fun and not to necessarily win. Now that I am back caddying and working at Crooked Stick, I want to play more golf. Not necessarily like I used to every day but I really wouldn't mind going out an shooting an 80 if it meant having fun on the course again. I am the most competitive player I know and I want to win everything that I played in, but there comes a time where you just burn out. The moral of this rant? is that you aren't truly playing golf until you're enjoying yourself and having fun.

    Go to club or shot from 125 yards. READ ORIGINAL POST!!!

    Depending on how I am hitting it that day I would either: Hit a low draw with a full 52 degree or hit a hit fade with a 3/4 pitching wedge. Most of the time I would hit the sawn off PW.
  6. I would personally go to Ackerman rather than Kampen, but that's just me. A few other of my favorites are Tippecanoe County Club (shorter, but tough and great holes) and the Trophy Club (one of the best north of Indy).

    What'd You Shoot Today?

    79 - 40/39. First round since October 1st. Hit probably 20 balls before the round, first time I hit balls outside since Oct. 1 as well. Was trying to break 80 and not make a fool of myself. Started off rocky - bogey, bogey, bogey, par, par, triple then finished the front birdie, birdie, par...Wasn't bad, pretty happy. Playing again on Wednesday.

    Video Logs (VLogs) of You Playing Golf! Post Your Own!!!

    Great vlog! Enjoyed watching, iMovie? I use my iPhone. I try to have it charged to at least 80% and then I always turn it to airplane mode which saves a ton of battery. I use my portable charger through holes 10-12/13 usually but it just sits on the tripod which it's recording and usually charges it back up to about 60-70% which easily gets me through the rest of the round. I suppose I could only do 13 or 14 holes if I didn't plug it in during the round. Not much hassle.

    MasonAsher2014's College Golf Thread

    Couple rounds the last few days. On the fourth I played with my dad and the usual group we play with. Played 36 holes with our group and then stayed and played another 18 holes of match play with my dad. First round played okay. My driver was awful as was my putting which is not normal for me. Shot 37-37 (par 37 on front) to shoot a 74. There were three 74's in our group of 6 plus a 75 so it was only a profit of 10 cents for me...Here's the strokes gained from that round: Turkey Run Strokes Gained Just look at some of those drives...awful (Hole 3,4,5) Next round I started great, was -7 thru 7 and shot 32 (-5) on the front with a double on 9 and bogies on 10 and 11 to start the back lol. Shot 32/39 for a 71. What could have been. I don't have a strokes gained sheet for this one but I gained a ton with my drives and short approach but lost it all with short game and putter. Played yesterday with a guy from work and shot a 37/37 for a 74 on a 75.0/135 course that I had never played before. Heartland Crossing in Camby, Indiana is a links style course that was in a little rough shape but not bad. Played really well despite having a few bad shots. Note my hole #9...great then awful. Here is the strokes gained: Heartland Crossing Strokes Gained Not bad I am getting there but I am pulling a ton of putts...super frustrating. I'll be playing again Sunday. Meanwhile here's the front nine of my course vlog from Heartland...will be posting the back nine tomorrow night! See you guys on Monday!

  11. So, do we get a round recap? How long was it? People follow him around? What were the strengths and weaknesses to his game? How much did distance affect him?

    Orlando, Florida August 3/4

    I know I did a little bit but I also wanted to post a thread just in case I could find a TST member to play with! I'm definitely going to look at OCN.

    Orlando, Florida August 3/4

    I am coming down to Florida for a few days on a family trip and I have basically free reign to play golf. I am hoping to play at least one round and hopefully three. I will be staying at Star Island Resort just south of Orlando basically in Kissimmee. Does anyone have any course recommendations? Looking to play on Thursday August 3rd afternoon and hopefully early Friday morning and then in the afternoon. Definitely will get in a round that Friday. Not looking to break the bank but I will spend for some nice courses. Looking for no more than a 30 minute drive. Let's hear your suggestions and let me know if you can join!!!
