  1. Driver for me and aim exactly at were @klineka finished his 3 iron. If I hit it straigth i'll be left to the green with 50% birdie chance. If I miss it right I will be on the green, or with and easy chip/pitch. 75% birdie chance. If I miss it left I will be on the rough with a 50 yard shot. Same chance of bogey/birdie. With this strategy i guess that after 4 rounds of a tournament i can finish the hole -1. Laying up... If I hit it straigth i'll be on the fairway with a 50 yard shot with 25% birdie chance. If I miss it right I will be on the sand with a 50 yard shot thats 25% more chance of bogeys than birdies. If I miss it left I will be on the rough with a 70 yard shot. Same chance of bogey/birdie. With this strategy i guess that after 4 rounds of a tournament i can finish the hole Even. Driver all year long!
  2. Google "ricky shields adjustable club".
  3. Since last night Argentina entered in a 2 week quarantine for everyone. You can only go out to buy food or medicine. No golf for me for at least 2 more weeks.
  4. You just need to worry about going out and having fun with her. When she wants something more than just going out she will brought it up. You never have to do it. If you speak about relationships in the beginning of the interaction with her she will feel that she is going to loose her freedom with you and she will run away.
  5. Here in Argentina sports are now played without fans, but at the same time we still travel by subway or train one over each other. It make no sense.
  6. Numbers can be deceiving and the media always will take advantage of it to sell more. In 20 days of the virus almost 5k died in the world from coronavirus. (around 250 each day). Every day 150k people die around the world. Only the 0.0017% of the dead each day are from coronavirus... there are monsters out there more lethal than coronavirus.. just saying.
  7. 1- not at all. but i guess that maybe in a few weeks i will be doing home-working all week. 2- not at all. same thing, maybe in a few weeks my club is going to be closed or with some attendence restrictions. Here we have Dengue and Influenza, both kills a lot more people everyday than coronavirus so we are still not much worried about it.
  8. They gave me a 69(-3) last saturday. Maybe i should stop playing until they forget about it.. i´m scared..
  9. Finally, birdie on #1 hole to finish the challenge.
  10. Avoid injure yourself even worst. WD, heal and come back next year.
  11. 83 at a mid Am tournament on a really hard course. Around 7000 yards. Rating 75.
  12. 78-72 (+6) another good score for this weekend. It´s so important to keep grinding after a couple of bad holes, the good ones are ahead of us. I was +3 on the second round on the 8th tee, y birdied #8, #10, #11 and #12. -1 on the 13th tee. It felt good.
  13. 2 more rounds. Birdied #11 ! Only hole #1 to go.
  14. Amazing! Greg... c´mon man!
  15. Liked the distribution on concepts when you have 1..2 or 3 hours for a 1st class. With strategy you can gain strokes rigth away, cut out a few strokes with short game is something that can be achived in a short amount of time. Long game is the most important ascpect if you really want to lower your score but that take time! in that case you need several clases. Good Job!
  16. Yes, but this is not about been better than half of the world, it´s about shooting your best scores that your current swing allows you to do. If you can keep the ball in play with your driver you will score better than keeping the ball in play with 3 wood... hybrid or 4 iron. Beeing closer to the green in play makes you score better. The same apply when lay-up on a par 5. I used to leave me a 90 yard full shot. Now i hit it as close to the green as I can and i´m doing a lot more birdies with half wedge and i don´t practice them at all, closer to the green in play is always better.
  17. 4 rounds this long carnival weekend. 81-70-74-71 (+8) Really good performance. I´m hitting hybrid or irons in par 4´s off the tee to have longer irons to the greens (my course is short 6550). It really helped me to practice those mid and long irons from the fairway and rough, At my course i usually hit wedges all day long and only a couple of long irons on par 3´s. This practice it´s really paying off and i´m sure it will help me a lot when going out and competing on 7000 yards courses.
  18. 4 rounds this long carnival weekend. Birdied the #2 hole. 2 more holes to go. Lipped out on #1.. #11 it´s a long par 3, i´m not even close yet.
  19. Exactly.. around 100 yards wide. You have to test your other long clubs but normally your dispersion decreses in proportion of the length of the shot. As scott states.. "if you have to hit 4 iron or less off the tee to avoid penalties, the hole gets too long so it´s better to just hit driver" this doesn´t apply on drivable par 4´s. Because of knowing my dispersion and aiming properly I reduced my penalties and lowered my scores. It´s the same principle Iacas teach us with his shots zones and stuff.
  20. I apply Scott Fawcett´s strategy approach since 2016. The number 70 is the dispersion for a tour pro at 270 yards carry were 90-95% of their golf shots ends. In your 15 ball test, take the 2nd fardest away from the target. That´s your dispersion divided by 2. Apply scott´s strategy with that number, and not 70. As an example mine is 80 yards (40 left, 40 rigth) wide at 270 yards carry+roll. Good luck!
  21. The front nine are a little easier. Same distance. My average is half a stroke more in the back 9.
  22. 8 minute window es a LOT !!! you also took 5 mins to finish 8th hole so this group ahead of you took 13 minutes to have a snack!! at my home course that´s at least penalty or DQ. You are only allowed to stop 5 minutes if your pace with the group ahead is good, if not you cannot stop. In this case i would let the other group know and tee off ahead of them, reinforcing the fact that they where 1 or more holes behind the next group.
  23. Birdie machine! Congrats for finishing the challenge!
  24. Nothing at all. I get really in the zone and don´t care about the environment. My playing partners offten ask me if i didn´t heard the "..." (put an annoying sound in there) while i was hitting a shot, but I almost don´t.
  25. Maybe i could get rid of my 56° and 51° wedges and include a 54° wedge to fill the gap.
