  1. I watch GSK just because I like watching him play. But he is a scratch player so he can get away with hitting three 6 irons on a 540 yd par five. Me, I have to get max distance on every shot because I know that I will probably mis-hit 1/3 shots. So his divide and conquer strategy wont work for me. Fun videos tho.

    That Guy

    This guy is a bully. Back off your shot, look him in the eye, tell him no talking during your swing, and go about your business. If he continues with the behavior, and the group continues to pair him with you, leave.
  3. That was me for years. My swing was just WRONG! And no amount of driving range sessions fixed that until I got my swing to where I was hitting it solid. Here is what I did: 1. Took lessons and learned what a square club face at impact does. A lot of instructors I went to assumed I knew. When my last instructor showed me I understood what I was supposed to do and things started to sync up. Everyone learns differently. 2. moved up a set of tees. This got me in range to regularly make pars and an occasional birdie. Fun. This is building my confidence and making me hit shots I have not played before. 3. Took a short game lesson. I know alot of players who have NO TOUCH near or on the green. Its painful to watch. Best to your friend. Its good he keeps pace. I can hang with someone who shoots high scores but keeps it moving.
  4. They young man is a golfer. There are many good things to learn and experience in college but he has chosen the OJT road. Hopefully it works for him.
  5. Well. It depends 1. A good round going, 19th hole 2. A bad front 9, start drinking.
  6. No. I just started tracking my handicap on an app and will update it on the website when I have more scores entered. It’s not official but more accurate than me telling someone I shoot about bogey. I am always dejected to find my ‘270 yd’ drive next to the 150 marker on a 340 yd par 4.
  7. I broke 90, shot an 86. Next up, 80!
  8. Here is my 'No 7s Challenge'. Of course I bogied the 5's. Can I get a 90's badge.
  9. Hmm, I have to look at my past scorecards. I shot an 43/43. I'll check that card.
  10. Yep, the par-4s are knocking me out of this. No room for a bad swing, which I WILL have on the 4's. Not so penal on the 5's.
  11. I always use new balls. Its one less thing to worry about.
  12. I have always been a good putter. Probably why I was shooting 108 and not 126. After I got my driver longer and more consistent I can shoot in the eighties. LSW is right.
  13. Shot 87 today, 42/45. Played the back nine twice as aeration of the front 9 is in progress. Could have been lower but made some stupid course management decisions on a few holes. Upside was two birdies today on hole 10 and 18.
  14. Late update. Tuesday shot 84, my lowest round on my ‘home’ course. 4 pars, 1 birdie and 13 bogies. I think this is my first round with no doubles or worse. Driving was good all around. I am also working my 3 wood into the bag and hit some good shots both off the tee and one from the fairway that landed in the front of the green on a par 5.
