  1. Played yesterday and today. Didn't go so well yesterday as I shot a 106 yesterday as my driver was just all over the place and my ball striking overall left a lot to be desired. Had 4 GIRs, however, 3 were on the front which was a general theme as shot 49 on the front and 57 on the back. Score: 106 CR/Slope: 71.6/121 2 Pars 5 Bogeys 3 DB 6 TB 1 Quad-Bogey View this round on GAME GOLF Today I was able to bounce back and although I shot 100, I had control over my driver, was moving the ball right to left or straight off the tee and my ball striking felt better. 2 holes ended up doing me in, though. After starting with 3 bogeys, which really should have included 1 par, and a double bogey, on the par 3 4th hole, I pushed a 7I right and subsequently overdrew the ball on my reload and missed short and right on a brutal front right location location on a green that slopped severely from back right to front left. Over-hit my chip shot that went all the way to the back right of the green, had to chip on and then 3 putt for an 8. On the Par 4 14th hole, I overdrew 2 tee shots with my 3H OB. Then chipped out, leaving myself 100 yards, took a three-quarter swing with a 52 degree wedge and left it short right. Flag was on the front right and I thinned my chip shot, leaving it on the back left of the green. I then 3 putt for a 10. That said, drained a few longish putts, but my short game, putter notwithstanding, was brutal as I failed to leave myself any gimmies when chipping. That said, had another birdie and a few pars so there are definitely positives to take away from the round. Score: 100 CR/Slope: 70.4/124 Birdie: 1 Pars: 3 Bogeys: 6 DB: 6 Others: 2 View this round on GAME GOLF 4 rounds in four days - first time I've been able to do that and it was AWESOME! Shot 95, 95, 106, 100 so, not too shabby for me.
  2. Well, today I shot 95 again but my ball striking was really off. 1 had 1 GIR and 4 penalty strokes. However, I didn't really have any blow-up holes. Three weeks ago I would have been happy as a pig in sh*t at shooting 95, today I was disappointed. Score: 95 CR/Slope 70.3/123 GIR: 1 (6%) Pars: 2 Bogeys: 11 DB: 3 TB: 2 View this round on GAME GOLF
  3. Got a form response today. "We had a server issue which we have now fixed. Upload should be working as normal again. Please let me know if the issue still persists." Hoping they'll be able to help me recover the round that the website it deleted. I was, however, able to upload the round I played today.
  4. Had the front 9 of my life today. Started birdie, par, par, double bogey, par. Through 8 I was +4 (including two penalty strokes) and then hit a bad tee shot on the 9th hole (hole 27), had to chip out, didn't concentrate enough and had to try and crazy draw shot which didn't draw and went into the woods and, after it was all said and done, carded a 9 on the hole and 46 on the front 9. Back 9 started with a birdie but got very wild and with 4 penalty shots on the back and shot a 49. Really disappointed because I really felt good at the start of the round and then my tee shots just started coming undone and wasn't able to correct it until the end of the round. But two rounds in a row I've gotten two birdies and all time high in GIRs :). Anyway, here's the round: CR/SR: 72.5/123 Score: 95 (Started on hole 19) GIR: 6/18 (33%) Birdies: 2 Pars: 3 Bogeys: 5 DB: 7 Quintuple Bogey: 1 View this round on GAME GOLF
  5. It's not - but from my recollection the few times I've emailed them in the past they've responded within 24 hours so it leads me to believe things have changed.
  6. Well, over 24 hours later and I haven't received a response yet. They used to be good about responding quickly. I'm starting to think the round might be lost which sucks because it tied for my lowest round ever (which I had set the day before).
  7. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while.
  8. I uploaded my round this morning. I tried to delete a shot and move a putt off the green but got an error. I then decided to send a bug report and when I submitted it, my round was no longer there so I sent another bug report and hope they can get it back.
  9. Followed up yesterday's 90 with another 90 today - this time on a course I've never played before, including a hole in one! Game golf is messed up so not sure about stats but putting felt better, driver was still uneasy, ball striking overall was good (for me), although a couple of times I had a WTF moment, especially on the last hole where I hit a 7 iron way to the right. I have no idea about how many GIR's bur the round played out like this: CR/SR: 71.2/127 Eagles: 1 Birdies: 2 Pars: 3 Bogeys: 5 DB: 4 Other: 3 Penalty: 2 Stoked to see what happens next weekend!
  10. Hmm...I can't log into my desktop program. Also can't log into my account on the website. Anyone else having this issue?
  11. After shooting my best round ever last Saturday (a 93) I now have a new low round after shooting at 90 today! My driver is still a little shaky so I have to put some work in to it. Got really lucky on a narrow par 5 where I pushed it deep into the woods but the ball miraculously ended up in the rough. Legitimately have no idea how that happened. Also drained a 36 foot putt so definitely had some good fortune. The only other long putt I made was a 12 footer so I need to put some work in with my putter. Lag putting was good, though. Feeling really good about my play recently. Starting to really feel confident and if I learn to hit my driver, I'm sure consistent 80's is not too far away (even though it's almost the end of the season). Anyway, here's the breakdown. CR/Slope: 69.9/128 Pars:6 Bogeys: 8 DB: 3 QuadBog: 1 GIR: 4 View this round on GAME GOLF
  12. Shot my lowest round ever today on a course I never played before and I am so happy about it! Score: 93 (Par 72, CR: 70.1/Slope: 121) GIR: 3 FIR: 1 Pars: 5 Bogeys: 8 DB: 3 Other: 2 It's my first sub 95 round. My ball striking has been much better and I know it may not seem like it because I only had 3 GIRs but I've only had 5 GIRs in a round once and I had a good amount of nGIRs. I pounded my driver out there today with 6 drives over 250, longest going 285 uphill. The biggest thing was that anytime I had a chip shot, I focused on making good contact and getting on the green rather. So, I didn't stub any chip shot that ended up still in the rough. My putting was subpar overall but I did close out the last two holes with back to back 10 foot putts which I was thrilled about. I was really feeling it on the back nine as I shot a 43, finishing 1 over on the last 5 holes with 3 pars to close the round. Only wish it was June that the season wouldn't finish so soon here in NY so I could really build on this but happy none-the-less with my performance recently, as I shot a 102 yesterday with some flubbed chip shots and a 99 last week. Anyway, here's the round: http://www.gamegolf.com/player/RFKFREAK/round/2774353
  13. Anyone find a video of Duval? It's kind of like a car crash - sorry it happened but I want to see how bad it was.
  14. Well, first I don't agree with the notion that it's pretty clear he doesn't have the ability to play these types of courses. Second, he's arguably the GOAT, has a ton of money, and is known worldwide so he doesn't need to play lesser tournaments unless there's a reason for him to. His golfing goal right now is to win as many majors as possible and he can't win the majors he doesn't play in so, yes, it's ridiculous to say he should't play a major because of some rational that the course doesn't suit his game.
  15. Exactly. To suggest that Tiger shouldn't be playing these types of courses because it's "too much" for him is ridiculous.
  16. Good to see Tiger retaining some humor.
  17. In 2016 I lost about 80 pounds of fat by lifting 5x a week. My current routine has me doing a Pull/Push/Legs/Upper/Lower split. 3 of those days my workouts begin by preforming deadlifts, squats, and bench press. I've never been good at golf and historically my practice has pretty inconsistent. This year I've been really neglectful of my practice and even though I've played less I feel my swing is immensely better, the ball is going further, and even though my scores have remained the same, I feel as though my game is better. I'm not particularly muscular but, at least for me, being fit and gaining muscle has certainly not hindered my game.
  18. Well, to be honest, if it were Phil or Rory running away with it I'd be glued to my TV, too.
  19. I'm glad it has tighten up. I was about to lose interest if Koepka would have continued running away with it.
  20. Do they just add ppl like that? Do you normally have to have an established handicap?
  21. So, my work schedule come at the end of June lightens up to the point that I could probably leave work earlier than 5. This summer I won't have any school commitments as I graduated last year. I'm not a member of a club and the overwhelming majority of the time play public courses. I don't have a big circle of golfing friends locally and was thinking of joining a league to so as to play more and I was curious how ppl here ended up joining their leagues and if they had any suggestions as to how to go about it.
  22. Found the wall drill online (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xs22MYfuUJs) and along with the pieces my instructor has me working on, I had a great range session with the ball flight being draws or pushes with my 6I, Driver, and 3W. I've never been able to hit my 3W, I usually top it, hit it thin, fat, or some other way leading the ball to roll 50 yards on the ground but today I hit about 10 balls and hit the center of the face about 5 times which I was happy about. Overall very encouraged with how things are progressing so far after a brutal two rounds to start the year.
  23. Working on 2 pieces with my instructor. Getting the hands closer to my body while having the clubhead pass through my hands from the DTL view at A2 and a secondary piece of swinging in to out. I think the first piece I started to do well on but the second still needs a ton of work.
  24. It was a tale of two nines. I should preface that working in the 4-6 rep range for squats, OHP, and deadlifts at the gym this morning and then working on my swing might not have been the best things to do before playing 18 holes but 🤷‍♂️. So it rained lightly for most of the round and on the front 9 I had 2 pars, 4 bogeys, and 3 double bogeys, 10 over, shooting a 45. Swing felt in control, didn't lose any balls and generally felt really good about my golf game for the first time this season and this was my third round. Then I think I started getting tired, my back started to tighten up and I really couldn't make swings the way I had been able to on the front 9. My best hole was a bogey on a par 3 and I picked up 4 penalty strokes on the back. My putting still feels like the best part of my game so far this year. I'm not really draining putts but I'm leaving them real close to the hole my speed is good. Also had a couple bunker shots I got out in one try so feeling more confident on that. So, not the best but here is what I did for the round: Score: 108 GIR: 2/18 FIR: 1/13 Putts 33 Putts/Hole: 1.83 I'm excited that my swing helped me get a good score (for me) on the front and I think if I play without putting that much stress on my back that on the second nine I'll be better. Probably won't play for a couple of weeks so, we'll see. View this round on GAME GOLF
