  1. Been doing stretching w massage therapist does : Pulls both arms at same time ..til I feel in tri- biceps & shoulders Each leg is pushed up.as high as possible so I feel a stretch in quads & glutes Tot time 20 min
  2. I was quoting the GREAT GARY PLAYER .HE SAID AMATEURS SHOULD SPEND 90% OF THE TIME ON SHORT. ITS SAFE TO SAY MR. PLAYER KNOWS A LOT MORE THAN U DO MORON!! ANYWAY WHO THE HELL WOULD READ A BOOK.BY SOMEONE WE NEVER HEARD OF . YOUVE ALREADY PROVEN U DONT KNOW UR ASS FR A HOLE IN THE GROUND
  3. Since I'm 68 & my distance (after 3 back surgeries) has diminished I stay away fr the longer higher slope Championship type courses. Thank God there's reasonable public courses suitable for the average player.
  4. I agree 100% on the 3 footers. I practice those alot because I CANT STAND missing them. I also work on the lag putts 20 - 30 ft w the goal of getting a short 1-3ft 2nd putt. "KEEP IT IN THE SHORT GRASS "
  5. Thank you for your comments. I agree with in making the shots around the green. I want to add that I've tried many clubs chipping just 10 -20 yds..fr the pin. I generally use a 8i , 56W, and recently a "Chipper ". Fr 40 -50 yds.. out I feel more confident than the aforementioned chip. But I'm working more now on that short chip. Thank you again for your comments in welcoming back to the game !! ⛳😁
  6. Scoring avg about 71.7 on any given week on the tour. PUTTS AVG. 28 - 30 ( 1.67 per hole ) Wedges/ Chips/ Pitch/ 14-16 total >> 42 - 46 Par 72 -42 = 30 shots = 58% short game PROS SPEND EQUAL TIME ON.LONG & SHORT GAME
  7. Thank you I will ck out Game Golf. I currently use mscorecard. I then enter in a Notepad on Smartphone things like chip/ pitch dist off the green/;club. As also 1st putt dist fr hole 2nd putt dist.
  8. Most of the women are in pretty good shape. I like watching because they have to hit more different clubs .
  9. When will the USGA / R & A pullback the ball distance. What will we have a 800 yd par 5 ? It's silly right now. Driver wedge - Driver- wedge .BORING !!
  10. Thank you again. I just wanted to add that I miscalculated my current practice time on the short game its 75% now. Like you when I was healthier it was the reverse.
  11. HUTThank you for your comments. I know no longer Tee fr the White but rather the senior Silver tee. It works out because I play exclusively during the weekdays & most players are seniors. I keep pace w most players. Yes I thoroughly enjoy the game . After my fusion surgery in 2013 I gave my clubs to my Dr. Who got me walking again. I moved fr cold NY to warm Az. After 3 years I felt better & got some used clubs and stayed on the driving range & putting green for 6 months. I stated to play my score was up &.distance down. But I loved & missed it so much I stuck w it. So now I'm scoring as good or slightly better sometimes. My love & appreciation for the game grew even more ! Improving my short game will help me lower my score lower than ever. Yes I enjoy practicing & using every club in the bag. I have 4 Wedges 50- 56-60-65. I love hitting those soft high shots into the green. I also have a birth defect a left hand w no fingers. But its never been an issue. The back problems are far worse. Thank you again for your comments.
  12. Thx again for the comments. Because I'm not a long hitter I usually only get 3 GIR . So I rely on getting U & D the rest of the holes. Best of luck.to you . Keep it in the short grass .
  13. I'm sorry I miscalculated my % time on short game its 75% .
  14. I met Gary about 20 yrs ago at a Charity Skins Game . He is a picture of health. Back then I could hit the ball 50 yds. Farther than now (68 back fusion. Now I have too practice the short game more. By doing so I can score the same or lower than 20 yrs ago. Thanks Mr. Player for the great tip.
