    I think it was a mistake to play on Labor Day

    I played on Labor Day with my buddy Ken. We play head to head and talk a ton of shit. Well I shot 38 on the front to his 43. I missed easy and short par putts on 1 and 6 as well as a 3 putt on 8. Was that close to a -1 35 on front. Only problem is we teed off at 1pm and it was a crazy hot day. The 12 pack we drank caught up with me by the turn. By 17 we drove through the sprinklers on purpose. My game went downhill as the back side wore on. Easy par at 10 followed by an OB on 11 from 70 yards where I completely flew the green with a sand wedge. Then OB off the tee at 12. Limped in with a 46 on back and didn’t really care. Was just happy not to fall over from the heat.

    What'd You Shoot Today?

    Played a challenging resort and shot 87. Hit the ball well enough to shoot 78. I had no putting today. 39 putts. One of the 2 worst putting rounds I’ve had this season. How I didn’t wrap my putter around a tree I’ll never know. I 3 putt bogeyed 1,2, and missed a 3 foot par at 5. I was 4 over after 5. I should have been 1 over. That kind of day. Had the best putting I’ve had all year then next 2-3 time out I putt like shit. Story of my season. Seldomly was every piece working together this year. Made a score that wasn’t aweful to be honest.

    Club Championship. Was playing great. Hit the 1st 5 greens in reg. Did 3 putt once. But stuck one from 95 yards to kick in territory at 14. (Started on 10) then I chunked my 3rd at the par 5 15. Chunked my tee shot par 3 16th. Bogey, double, bogey, bogey to close that side +5. Lip out a bird at 1 to make a bogey. Blow up is in full swing at that point as I make double then quad at 2 and 3. Amazing how you can be cruising and all the sudden just hit a wall and fall apart. One of the best starts i ever had in a competitive round to a complete disaster in a matter of minutes.

    Fat irons

    Good thought. I’ve been focusing on making a good turn with my driver. Haven’t had any problems with my wedges on approach shots 60-100 cause I’m not taking a full swing.

    What'd You Shoot Today?

    Club championship this weekend and rain has wrecked my week of preparation. Hit a monster drive on 1 today and blasted a sw over the green at 1. Up and down for par and made a 10ft for bird at 2. 3 putted 3 and downhill from there. Added another 3 putt and missed some greens that I should have never missed with wedges in my hand. 41 front 9. Not gonna get the job done with that. Only played 9. Gonna get out tomorrow afternoon and see if we can’t play a round to build the confidence before the sat morning tee time to open the tournament I swear there is no better feeling than putting a 3w 2nd into a par 5 and giving yourself a chance!

    Fat irons

    Finding myself chunking irons. Weight transfer be the likely target? It’s not ball position as my divots are starting well behind the ball and I’ve even taken effort to play the ball back more to see if that would be the case. When I do that I chunk it worse. I feel like I may not be getting onto my front side. Any thoughts?

    Oh my aching ______! (Fill in the blank)

    My shoulder. Rotator issues from pitching.... a lot growing up. My left foot for some reason hurts like hell when I sit for a long period or sleep. I can’t walk down the stairs in the morning.
  8. I’ve been playing pings since my junior year of high school. 1995-1996. I like to believe I don’t fit your stereotype of the “ping guy” but I do agree with you thought of a troll potentially lurking.

    Weather sucks! Rainy but I tried. Made it through 15 before I gave up. +4 on the front. Putter was HOT on the back. I had 8 puts through 10-15. 2 lengthy birds. Was even on back.

    Warm Up

    It amazes me that pros hit th amount of shots that they do before a round. If I hit that many I’m done before I make the turn. I guess that is what separates them from players like us. They are conditioned to repeat their swing over and over and over. Much like you I do find myself hitting some really ugly golf shots if I don’t do something to get loose before I play!

    That’s frustrating! It’s bad enough when you can’t get by people. Even more so when they are clearly playing the wrong tees! I left after 8 a couple weeks ago after riding the heels of a pair walking (I was riding and a single) that refused to let me by. I’m pounding drives within 100 yards of the green on the last 3 par 4’s and I hit the green as they were walking off the 6th which is a 3. When it was 90+ and the jokers in front just don’t have a clue it isn’t worth it. Especially since I have a membership and only had to raincheck a few bucks on the cart.

    Warm Up

    That was a frustrating day. I missed short pars for up and downs at 1/6 and 3 putted 8 for bogey. Made birdie at 2. Was +2 on front. Couple short ones fall and I’m -1 or even. The heat just demolished me on the back side tho. 11-13 I went double, bogey, triple with 2 penalty strokes. Rest of the day was all about surviving.... literally! I drove through the sprinkler at 17 haha! Limped in with a 46. 4 of those penalty strokes.

    Warm Up

    Haha I played on Labor Day. Was 90 plus degrees for a 1pm tee time! 8th hole I was on my 4th beer and felt like I was gonna keel over from the heat and booze combo. 3 putted 8 and yanked a drive on the driveable 9th way left! I love to have a couple on the course but that was one day beer was not a good idea!

    Warm Up

    That’s why on the course I seldom go at a full 56 or 52. I almost always take the longer club. When I try and get every last yard out of one of those scoring clubs I get every yard alright..... skulled right over the green! I’ll choke a 52 down before I go all out at a 56!

    Warm Up

    Tempo. I’m the same way. That’s my focus when I do hit some prior. When my swing goes bad from the 1st tee it tends to be when I get too quick at the top and out of sync. I’ll hit my 56 and my 9 for the tempo finders. I don’t even concern myself with where it’s going as much as just good tempo and solid contact. I’ve hit enough balls in my life I know I will find my accuracy as long as the tempo and contact is there.
