  1. Shot 41 in my past Thursday morning league after leaving 2 birdies out there and making one. 87 Saturday at Bent Tree. Only my third time playing this course. The two previous rounds here were mid 90's. During those rounds, I might as well left my flip flops on as I was on the beach so frequently. Playing a scramble today at Heritage Golf Club in Hilliard.
  2. Agree with this wholeheartedly, Dave. I have no issue at all calling people out or being the "dick" when need be. For the life of me, I cannot comprehend why people do this, other than their ego is larger than life. It's a freaking number that they clearly cannot play to. For me, vanity cappers are equally as frustrating as sandbaggers. Especially in our "friendly Thursday morning league" where there is really nothing to win. Seems some people get well hung up on "look at me" instead of enjoying the game or camaraderie.
  3. Eager to see the newly renovated course first week of June for the Memorial!
  4. My line up to cover gaping is driver, 3W, 4H, 5-AW, 56, 60. I need to gain more confidence in my 3W and start using it more. I just don't hit it as clean off the deck as I need to for 220-230 yard shots. I favor my 4H to 200-210 and work to get up and down. I am really going to focus on the 3W in some upcoming practice sessions in hopes to fill the gap instead of just another spot in the bag.
  5. Ended up shooting 90 at Glenross Golf Club. 68.9/122, 6122 yards. Man, a tale of two 9's. My tempo was horrific on the front as I just felt rushed every single shot for whatever reason. Ended up with a 50 on the front. Chilled at the turn with a 3 deep tee box on 10. Which was a blessing in disguise as I birdied the par 4 10th. I ended up shooting 40 even on the back. Hit 56% fairways and only 28% GIR, but that was probably nearer 52/54% counting NGIR. Overall, I was pleased with how I hit driver and my misses were just right of the fairway by 3-5 yards. My putting was a glaring wea
  6. Shot an 86 and 88 the past two days with 2 birdies in each of those rounds. About to head out to course this afternoon that I've never played. I'll post how I do when I get back.
  7. Afternoon all, Looking for some recommendations for a couple courses to play in the Chattanooga area. My daughter has a volleyball tournament in Atlanta and we're stopping in the area on the way down. Staying right off I-75 and Lifestyle Way if that helps for recommendations. Hoping to play a round with another volleyball dad the afternoon of Wednesday, March 31st and morning of Thursday, April 1st while the girls enjoy the pool at the hotel. I see Brainerd Golf Course and Brown Acres are very close by. Worth a go? Thanks in advance.
  8. I went with once it's over, it's over. I'd say I'm here 90% of the time. The shots that piss me off and tend to linger are shots that I lose focus because "they're an easy shot and I've hit them well plenty of times." When I rush and just go through this type of shot and bone it, yeah, that gets under my skin.
  9. I’ve had two more lessons since my last post. Continuing to work on full swing with a small bit of chipping and pitching. 8i practice session today. Feels I’m working on. Still working on back to target longer in downswing Today I did an uppercut punch move from address finishing the uppercut right of target line. Did same thing with a topspin tennis swing move. Both of these seemed to help with maintaining lag a bit longer and a feeling of swinging out to the right more. It also helped finish with higher hands instead of a “baseball swing” around my body provoking my d
  10. Went with 20 feet. Usually 1 putt a few per round and 3 jack at least one when I lose focus or have a downhill putt. I suck terribly at speed control downhill.
  11. I voted shorter than it should be. It is getting to what I feel is the right length after feedback about my shoulder turn, which has helped tremendously. I continue to practice that but it has not yet become automatic and lapse at times to my old short BS.
  12. I will also miss Feherty on the GC as I enjoyed his interviewing style splashed with a hint of comedy. 10 years and 150ish interviews is a great run. At some point, you just run out of people interesting enough to interview that will garner an audience.
  13. I had a lesson yesterday, 01-20-21. Worked on deep shoulder turn and initial move in downswing to shallow club shaft. Also feeling of holding back to target as long as possible to create room to come through with club. We also spoke about my 2021 season goals also as outlined on the forum. We added getting driver average to 250 yards. For my future reference, one of my A4 stills showing progress on deeper shoulder turn as of 01-20-21 Drills and feels to continue: Wall touch at A4 Bump & down pressure move Hold back to target during downswing
  14. I voted "on top of bag" for both, although at times I have placed them on the seat of the cart as I walk to my shot. I used to put them partially in the slot where the club resides. After a round last year, I found my hybrid cover missing and was upset I had lost it. When I got home and was cleaning my gear, I found the cover had fallen into the club hole and had made it's way clear to the bottom of the bag. Had a helluva time getting that bastard out of their fishing around with alignment sticks. Nearly took me 5 beers to get it out. So no, I do not do that anymore.
  15. The range I go to frequently has heaters suspended from the ceiling of each stall. There is a small group of older gentlemen that are there every single day. They have one of these portable heaters between the stalls facing a bench that is there. Primarily use it to stay warm, or warm up, while drinking coffee and shooting the s**%t with their buddies. Puts out quite a bit of heat when I walk past to get to a stall.
