  1. Winter Depression Thread

    In Finland it's about -10 degrees celsius! Fortunately starting the golf season in Spain in a month, going to play 3 rounds. Then hopefully start playing in Finland late April or beginning of May
  2. The TST Member tournament play thread....

    I won my club championship match play! Final was a tight match until I won holes 11,12,13 to go 3 up. We tied the rest of the way with pars and I ended up winning 3/2. Cool to get my first ever club championship
  3. How many three-putts (or more) did you have today?

    I had 3 3-putts in my last round. Two of them were from about 30 feet, hit the first putt about 6 feet past. Third time was about 20 feet with a hard right-to-left break, underread it and missed a 4 footer. don't know if I should focus on getting better lags or holing better from 4-6 feet. I still feel like I'd rather give putts a chance than lag them short..
  4. The TST Member tournament play thread....

    Shot a 79 in the third round in my club championship strokeplay. So ended up with 80-81-79, 9th position. I was close to some really good rounds, but had too many troubles on the back nine.
  5. The TST Member tournament play thread....

    Couple of tournaments since my last post 1) Club championship match play. Won my semi-final 2/1, and now I'm going to the final! We are going to play it in a week or so 2) Club championship stroke play. 36 holes yesterday. I shot 80-81. Had good front nines in both rounds (+2 and E). My putter went cold in the first round and I made six bogeys on the back nine. In the second round I was going along nicely for the first 11 holes, but then made two triple bogeys in the last 7 holes, auch! Have to take the positives, I hit a lot of good shots and putting felt better in the second round. Today is the final round, I'm in 7th position. First 5 players are way ahead (scores from -10 (a touring pro!) to +7). Then there's a bunch of guys on positions 6-10 that have shot around 80-83 for the first two rounds.
  6. Looks sometimes like Stroud is anchoring his putter.. I must be wrong though..
  7. Ideal Pitching/Layup Distance

    Good, interesting stuff on this thread. On my home course there is a short par 4 where I can drive it to about 30-40 yards of the green. I've been consistently using this play. There is rough on the left and a bunker on the right, but not huge trouble. The green has severe slopes, so it is tough to approach. My last three rounds I've made three bogeys from the left rough and been about 40 yards from the green.. The rough is pretty thick but in no means unplayable. You have to hit from a sidehill lie, so the stance can get a bit uncomfortable. I'm considering trying a different approach on this hole and maybe leaving it a bit further. But after reading through this post I just might stick to my original plan and try to get my drive as close to the green as possible (and on to the fairway..) and execute my 40 yarders better..

    Played my club championship match play 3rd round match yesterday. I won 5/4, played pretty good, I was 2 over par when the match ended on the 14th hole. Made 3 bogeys and 6 pars on the front nine, I was 2 up after that. On the back nine I made a birdie and 4 pars. On to the semi-finals!
  9. 2017 WGC - Bridgestone

    I read somewhere that he's had some back issues.. But whatever the reason he has totally lost it after the Masters. And he's brother definitely isn't helping his cause with all the weird tweets Maybe he started enjoying it a bit too much after the Masters, which of course isn't wrong, but is showing on the golf game
  10. Great to see Curry shoot a 74. I was watching web.com tour twitter for updates and it's the first time I've followed Web tour like this. So at the moment seems like a great invite for the tournament. I hope he shoots a good round today as well.
  11. Rory McIlroy Fires His Caddie

    This shows how high Rory's standards are.. this would be a great run for most of the pros! Interesting to see who ends up being Rory's caddie. There's a rumour that his best friend Harry Diamond would caddy for him at WGC Bridgestone, but surely that has to be just for one tournament..
  12. The TST Member tournament play thread....

    Played yesterday in an Amateur Scratch Tournament. It was played on a course (Vanajanlinna Golf & Country Club) that recently hosted a European Senior Tour event. Played from the back tees, CR 76.1 / Slope 145, pretty long course. Shot 77 (+5) and ended up in 3rd place. 14 pars, 3 bogies, 1 double bogey. Steady play, even though the birdies didn't drop.
  13. Must you put the ball in the hole always?

    I don't think five inch putts necessarily affect speed of play, but he should definitely pick it up earlier if he starts posting big scores.
  14. 2017 Open Championship at Royal Birkdale Discussion Thread

    Bubba after tee shot on par 3: "You can't play golf in this weather" It's windy but not even close to being play called off. This is how it's supposed to be at the Open, finally some testing conditions in a major! Bubba just thinned from the bunker..
