  1. I've been watching Tiger's group online because it's interesting and because Rickie is my favorite and who I picked to win (oops!). I don't know if I feel good about the fact that even the pros can look bad or feel bad because as bad as they look, their score would be the round of my life even on a much much much easier course.
  2. Practiced pitching and putting on the practice green before playing 27 holes today. Unfortunately I had a massive migraine yesterday so I'm out for this month. Probably still post here. Practicing every day has really helped me on the course. This site has given me so much help improving my golf game. Gonna get LSW soon. Even if I don't get anything out of it (which I doubt from what I've heard here) I wouldn't feel cheated considering all the free help I've gotten here.
  3. That is beyond slow. There is no way I could handle that.
  4. I want one of these... I could probably play 18 in under 2 hours by myself with this.
  5. Worked on this drill for about 20 minutes. A change from my usual practice of doing the same put over and over trying to get it perfect. This one you have to hit a slightly different put every time.
  6. 20 minutes working on pitching into a bucket in the backyard. Started about 15 feet away and worked my way back to about 45 feet.
  7. I voted online because when I do schedule tee times that's how I do it. I play the local municipal course which doesn't require tee times during the weekdays. The only time I play other courses is if I have found a somewhat comparable price at another course on Golf Now. Seeing as I play as many holes as my legs will carry me for at the muni for $12, I don't play elsewhere very often. Every now and then some $15 deals will pop up at courses that are usually $25-30. Riding a cart and playing a nicer course is worth it sometimes over getting to play 27 or 36 holes. Also if I am playing wi
  8. Why didn't I look into this before picking the winner at 7 under? I want outrageous speed damnit!
  9. More of practice with the driver just swinging as easy as I need to to hit the sweet spot consistently
  10. Practiced this drill for 30 minutes. I have no feel right now on my putts so I'm trying to get to the point where I know what different distances feel like. Then in theory I can focus more on the line and actually try to hole putts outside of 10 feet.
  11. Don't you think women's tees and having a separate Ladies' Par on some holes takes care of the distance difference? When I started golf I was a very short hitter and couldn't used my driver so I played from the Ladies' Tees a lot. It didn't make me score that much better because my technique still sucked but it pretty much took care of my distance problem. I'm still relatively short but I play from the white tees (second longest of 4 sets of tees at my course). I played the red tees once just to see how well I could score, and while I didn't post an amazing score it was pretty boring from a di
  12. I walked 36 holes in 5 hours today. The course was pretty empty otherwise there would have been a lot of "slow" players out there. I didn't do the slow down on putts and approaches thing that I did last time out. Putting was fine but approaches were kind of streaky. I think shots into the green is where I need to slow down my game and think about what I am doing. Putting and hitting driver off the tee I think I need to keep it simple and just do it. Thinking too much gets me in trouble, especially with the driver. I have finally changed my swing at least with the driver. I just take one slowed
  13. Worked on putting and chipping on the practice green before playing 36 holes.
  14. Worked on my putting stroke. Still working on being able to hit putts to the same distance consistently. I think its time to look for some specific drills like I use for all the other aspects of my game. Winging it is not working.
  15. Worked with my driver into the net for 30 minutes today. I hit it all over the face so I sprayed it with foot powder and took some full swings first to see where I was hitting it most often and it was on the heel. So I did some small swings feeling like I was trying to hit it off the toe. Started finding the sweet spot more often but still not great. Got the drill from a video with Mark Crossfield and a couple other instructors who's names I can't remember.
  16. No thank you. I'll remember this the next time I'm feeling sorry for myself because I'm hiking up the side of a mountain. High 80s is pretty hot here.
  17. I would blade it over the green. Or did you mean how would I attempt to play it?
  18. 30 minutes into the net with my 6 iron. Started with chip shots and took bigger and bigger swings until I got to the point where I was mishitting. Then I backed off a bit from that and hit some shots into the woods. Dead straight and good contact on every one of them. I think I'm going to use this as my warmup before going to the course from now on. 8i and under I am confident hitting fully just about any day with the odd misshit. 6 and above I kind of figure out how I'm hitting them that particular day on the course. If I have an idea how big a swing I can control that day then I can use that
  19. So it's more healthy to keep arguing when it's pretty clear neither of us are going to change our opinion?
  20. I've never been quite guilty of that from 290. I do hate when I'm 230 from a green with people on it though. I can get my 3 wood there if I hit it really well but I'm much more likely to screw it up and hit 190. Nothing like the group behind you watching you wait for a green to clear and coming up 40 yards short. I'd still rather have the group behind me be a little perturbed with me than hit someone when they're putting, and if I went for it with people on the green that would undoubtedly be the one in 10 shot I got it there.
  21. Hit into the net for 20 minutes trying not to move my head forward during my downswing. Smallish swings.
  22. Both players are walking (or riding) from the tee box to the green. The only added distance for a low handicapper is however further back his tees are. That distance is probably made up by the amount offline that the higher handicapper is walking. I also find it easier to get to my ball quickly if I can see it on the fairway from the tee or on the green from the fairway instead of finding it in the rough. I think we are going to have to agree to disagree on this one. I'm not saying you're wrong, just that I'm never going to say I'm wrong. Difference of opinions.
