  1. Went to the same course as yesterday and shot an 88. Missed 11 par saves which obviously doesn't tell the whole story, about 4 of them were from duffed, or thinned iron shots leaving me a ways in so it wasn't a short game issue for some of them. The vast majority though were from chips, and short pitches just rolling forever. So many aspects of the game I need to work on. Went off the tee with the 3 wood again today and only a couple really got away from me, but stayed in played so I can't complain.
  2. Shot an 85 today, lowest score relative to par at +13. Played the whites with my buddy from high school, course was around 6300 yards. My driver is getting the adapter repaired so I used the 3 wood all round, and it was money for me. Kept the ball in play and only missed about 3 fairways and even they weren't laying bad. Its tough leaving the driver out of the bag when I go with my regular group as they're all single digits and play from the blues or the tips. Still can't swallow my pride and play up when they play back, even though I know I probabaly should. Golfs way more fun when you aren't taking long irons into every single green.
  3. Shot 89 today, pretty tough links style course. Driver betrayed me on a few holes, and I left my self shortsided on a bunch of holes which led to a few errant flop attempts. Either way its always a good day to break 90.
  4. Shot an even 90 today. Started playing from the blues on the front and fired a 46, and a single jumped in on the back 9 and he was playing the tips so my buddy and I moved back and played those, shot a 44. Driver really hindered me all day, but the irons saved my round slightly. Still cant get all three aspects working at the same time, but I'm happy with today.
  5. That means clubhead closer to my actual head at the top of backswing? Not trying to overstep my instructor but it's what he has me working on although on 9 to 3 swings right now and I for the life of me even swinging slowly cant seem to grasp the movement too well. Thank you, I'll give it a shot.
  6. Took some full swings today to send to my instructor. Still not getting the clubhead sliding down the wall slightly feeling. Anyone have any feels that work for them to get the club not so steep in the downswing. Gonna stick with the drill he gave me, but looking to see if anyone has had any luck with a certain move or feel to accomplish it. Thanks in advance.
  7. Been working on this all summer so far, still just short swings trying to feel the clubhead ride "the wall" behind me a little long than before. My scores have been going down slightly but it's mainly from the driver showing up more consistently than last year, and my short game coming around. My irons might be the worst it's ever been. Hoping to see some progress on those in the near future.
  8. I mean is there any way to know? As someone who knows very little about the golf swing in general is there certain things to look for or is it just a gut feeling kind of thing?
  9. Shot a 92 and it was a definite tale of two nines. Shot 54 on the front, couldnt stop topping the ball, it was an utter disaster. Then go and shoot 38 on the back with 2 bogeys. I dont get golf man, swing felt the same all day but shots looked completely different. Still trying to work on stuff my evolvr coach gave me to do, but man this stuff is hard.
  10. Yeah I think so as well, last night it told me I was trending to 16.1 which the averages equal out to, but today it was 16.8. Like i said not really a big deal because it's just for me to look at, but was just wondering if anyone had that happen before. Only matches I play that matter are some money matches with buddies.
  11. Do you have to start fresh or can you put in back logged scores? Also is there a link to the eclub thing by chance.
  12. I mean not that it matters because I only use it for myself. But my handicap after my last round, the grint rated at 15.6 replaced a round rated at 19.0 the other seven scores remained the same and my handicap moved up from a 16.5 to a 16.8. Dont know much about the handicap system just wondering if this is normal and something else is involved.
  13. Shot an 85 today, got my last round in before my vacation ends this weekend. Broke 90 my last two rounds, today tied my all time low. The course measured at about 6100 and I played with a couple guys I dont normally play with, around my same handicap. Kind of relieving to play the whites for once, my other playing group are all around single digits so they like going from the blues, so I go from the blues even if I shouldn't. Driver was a big hook all day, and the long and mid irons were spotty at best. Wedges and putter really helped me, felt like money from 110 and in today, even chipped in another one for birdie and only had 31 putts. I had 2 birdies, 6 pars, 3 doubles, and the killers, 2 triples. So pretty stoked to see a few things progressing a little bit, at least for now.
  14. All my buddies played, and since I quit boozing (unless I or someone in my group in a hole in one) it's a way to hang out with the boys and they can drink, and I can abstain. Not to fun sitting at a bar sipping diet Pepsi. Now I'm hooked on getting better.
  15. Finally broke 90 this year and shot an 89 at Deerfield Country Club. Really stoked, had a chip in from a bunker on a par 3, and birdied another par 3. Shot 47 42, even playing a really good round by my standards I still felt like I left a ton of dumb strokes on the course, but I'll feel good for the day and forget the drop, and tops that hindered me from going lower.
