I appreciate your advice and help, this shot is a challenge for me and I am not figuring it out. Your insight on club selection and how you hit the ball is appreciated. The Shot: Ball has nestled into the thick, like real thick grass just past the fringe. It maybe 3" to 6" into the thick stuff. The shot is downhill with the cup at the legal 8' from the edge of the green so you very little green to work with. Due to the quality of the rough and how thick it is more times then not the grass is wet, especially when it is a early morning round. Later in the day this thick near PGA quality type rough will dry out but still the grass really maintains the moisture. Then also the green speed has picked up. These greens roll exceptionally well, they are very fast. At one time at a 12.5 stimpmeter reading. They have brought the speed down a tich, like between a 11 & 12 now. But if you find your line these greens roll so true that it you can trust them. Quick recap: Very thick rough, ball is nestled down, you can see it. Probably 6" deep The fringe is like 12" 8' of green to work with Downhill on fast greens, after the cup is a lot of down hill so if you hit it to firm you will be in a very long up hill putt that is more then likely a 2 putt now. I am at work and will be checking back from time to time so sorry for any delays in responding
Okay guys so I'm new to TST and read that most people on here are pretty nice and give good advice. So here goes my post. Since its my first post I'll give a bit of background as well. This is my 7th golf season. As I have progressed my scores have gotten consistently and significantly lower. I was a 100-105 when first starting, now I'm pretty consistently below 95 (on a decent day of course). My driver still slices, which is a topic in of itself. I just bought my first set of truly new irons (Cobra Fmax irons) and before that I had hand me down muscle back irons from the early 2000s.. My reason for this post is, I want to know what I'm doing wrong because I have never hit a birdie. I've had rounds where I hit bogey golf a whole round with the occasional double or occasional par. Even though I have averaged 4-6 GIRs a round but still 2 or 3 putt. Speed is there but I can't seem to read a green. I have had opportunities shouting in my face waiting to be drained and I'll push it. The straightest putt ever... pushed or pulled or not enough or too much speed. Is it the confidence? Is it swing thoughts before I set up at a putt? I'd like to know the same for my driver as well. 7/10 times it will slice or fade right quite a bit. but the other 3 will go right down the fairway. Even though I've changed nothing with the stance or swing. Sorry about all the info. I just feel like I haven't improved the parts of the game that mean it most and am feeling disappointed that 7 years later I have yet to hit 1 singular birdie. Thanks for whatever help you guys could give me.
