  1. 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.

    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!

    Here's the front nine from my round yesterday! Back nine coming tomorrow night! Take a look!
  4. 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?
  5. 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!!!

  8. What was your best start to a round ever?

    Not bad at all! Mine was helped with 4 straight wedges to about 5 feet and the eagle was on a par five dogleg that I hooked a 3 wood off the tee around the dogleg to be in reachable distance. That's great! I'm still happy to be +1 thru 6! Just wait til you start out under par! It's a feeling unlike any other. Dang! My lowest round I have shot I didn't even know what it was going to be just like that. I birdied all the par 5s and a few par 4s and I figured I'd be around par. It's nice to get some insurance in the early goings!
  9. What was your best start to a round ever?

    I got to thinking about this the other day when I noticed how well I was playing. I started birdie, par, birdie, eagle, birdie, birdie, birdie to go -7 thru 7. This would only rival the time I birdied the last five holes on the front at my college's home course to shoot a 30. What has your best start to a round been? -1 thru 1? -5 thru 10? (By the way, I ended up blowing up on the back with two doubles.)

    Played a few times in the last week. First, shot 78 at Purgatory (where I had shot 92 in the Indy Open) last Sunday. 7268 yards and a rating of 75.0. Purgatory Strokes Gained Played well, it was very, very windy. 40MPH plus the entire round. Then the next day played in the Indiana Monticello PGA Open on Monday. Played pretty well. Shot 77 and finished tied for 56th. Had what I thought to be two shots that definitely cost me. On #4 I was 172 out and hit an 8I over the green that hit the slope and ended up 40 yards over. Tried to hit a hit one and left it short of the green. Probably because had I landed it more than 15 feet on from my angle I would have rolled 20 yards off the front. On #7 I just kinda shanked an 8I 30 yards to the right of the green. Didn't have a good chip and bogeyed it. Three of my bogeys were 3-putts. Here are the results. https://iga.bluegolf.com/bluegolf/iga17/event/iga1740/contest/33/leaderboard.htm I don't have a strokes gained for this because I cannot find my scorecard from it. Then on Thursday I played with my head coach and shot my season low 68. Didn't do anything too spectacular just made every putt I had from 3-15 feet and hit a lot of greens. Hit the driver really well as well. Here's the strokes gained from that: Crawfordsville Country Club Strokes Gained Short but tough course. Par 70, rating of 69.8. Feeling pretty good with the game right now, just need to get my bad shots a little better.

    Here's the continuation of my 18 hole round. The first nine holes are above. Coming to this 9 I was +1. As always, let me know of any improvements that I can make!
  12. My Swing (MasonAsher2014)

    I will work on that with my driver. I will probably move it up to my front heel.

    Let me know when you get to Indiana! I would suggest a different course than Coffin - it's a goat track. Southern Dunes or Winding River would be a good track to play as far as public courses go in Indy.

    That's what I was thinking
