  1. As someone who plays as a single quite a bit during the week, that is the thing I see the most, people unwilling to swallow their pride and play the appropriate tees for their skill level. One of the things that really helped me get better was moving up, leaving the driver in my bag and working on hitting good shots with my hybrids and irons. A few years back anything iron past 175 yards was a disaster as I had zero confidence I could hit the green. Now that I have improved my iron play by quite a bit it is far easier to hit greens and make par so I have started to devote more time to hitting my driver more consistently off the tee.
  2. Sorry, no offense but how is saying "Would You Pay to Play One Now?" any less about politics than what I said?
  3. Yea, that it is a good way to sum it up. It looks more daunting than it is, you just have to play under control in my opinion. Having a GPS or range finder with slope is a huge help as well.
  4. Conestoga was nice, not quite as spectacular as Wolf Creek but really enjoyed the layout of the course. More of a traditional course, but in fantastic shape with some interesting holes. Overall a fantastic trip, sure we will be back to tee it up again.
  5. The course was incredible, one amazing view after another. I really enjoyed the layout as well, where else you going to play anything like it. The greens on the other hand were extremely difficult for me, not use to playing on greens that are an 11 or 12 and struggled to control the speed of my chips and putts. Still managed to grind out an 86, with 41 putts, so can't complain too much. View from hole #1
  6. Playing a short little 9 hole executive course here in CO, Stoney Creek. I was even par going into the par four 8th hole, when I sliced my drive into the water and had to take a drop. On the next shot, I hit my wedge extremely thin sending a line drive zooming past the green, headed towards the road where it took a bounce than hit a 1 inch wide metal stripped fence and bounced back around 25 yards onto the green and was sitting about 12 feet from the hole. I made the putt, got par on the par 3, 9th hole to finish even for the 9 holes. It is the first and only time I ever shot par.
  7. Shot a +9 79, no sixes, however I did take an 8 on one of the par 5s. Been a while since Ive done that.

    Pace Problem

    My brother and I played at Foothills in CO for the first time on Wednesday and it took just over 5 hours to play the round because they let the group in front of us go out with a group of 5. No ranger, anywhere on the course either. If you are going to play with 5, you should be cognitive of your pace, not them they took their sweet time every hole. It was a total joke, you can't get into any type of rhythm when it is 5 to 10 minutes between every shot. Seriously doubt I will ever play there again.
  9. Exactly, I use a garmin watch, if I totally shank it I choose the miss hit club because I want to track my distances with normal contact to see where I am at and what ranges I hit each club on the course. My drives typically go from 245 to 285 with an occasional 300 yard drive and some 210 yard ones when I slice it. It all averages out to 267 yards.
  10. That is fine for some one who can work the ball right to left, but some of us struggle with holding the club face off because we use to flip at the ball and are afraid that is what we are doing. One of the things that has been helping me as of late is changing my "release" point. I had been too focused on getting the head square at the ball that I wasn't paying enough attention to the fact my release point should be past the ball instead of at the ball. Trying to release at the ball and keep your hands in front of the club at impact led to me blocking it high to the right or slicing it depending on my path. This video really helped me understand the release much better.
  11. Nope we are in the US and both have Garmin GPS watches that track every shot and record the distance. He has always been a good athlete and pretty strong. He hits his 3 wood about 10 to 20 yards further than my driver and I avg 267. He started taking lessons at the end of last summer and is finally starting to hit his irons a bit better but he still goes through spurts of hitting it off the heal which sends it straight to the right, usually out of bounds or into the water 🙂 I am the opposite, I struggle with my driver, but hit my irons better than most.
  12. My brother is around a 14 handicap and he averages close to 300 yards (287) on his drives. I've seen him hit multiple 340 yard drives in a round with no helping wind. His club head speed is around 116 mph. He absolutely crushes his driver, woods and hybrids, but cant hit a green with his irons and can't chip to save his life. He is also 55, too. Just saying you never know what some one else is good at.

  14. Frustrating day all around today. Got stuck behind a freaking 5-some, annoying. Took just under 5 hours to play 18. So hard to get into a rhythm when you are sitting around waiting to hit after every shot. Ended up shooting an 88, my worse round in a few weeks. My driver has gone from mediocre to a complete disaster, and for the first time in a while didn't hit my irons well either.
