  1. Didn't play well yesterday in our informal group - back was giving me some conniptions all week so was trying to be more gentle with my ball striking. However, I was still able to deliver on several holes which put us in the money $20./player. Oddly enough my back felt better after golf - maybe the issues worked there way out??

  2. 84 (40/44) 6/14 fir 9/18 gir 35 putts Burned a lot of edges today and had some horrible wedge shots. Only converted one birdie and had 4 decent looks. Took a double after smashing a 4i punch into the tree instead of through the gap. Bounced back 25y and thru a chain link fence -- that's what I get for trying to be a hero. Triple on the last after I sprayed my driver into the trees. The 70s were gettable today but I just couldn't execute.

  3. Got in 18 at a new course for me, The Falls at Barber Creek. I tell you what, it was a gorgeous day on an even more gorgeous course. Unfortunately shot a 98, but felt like a played a lot better than the score indicated. I think I legitimately lipped out almost 10 putts (ended with 38). Had 43% FIR, 56% GIR (which are both above average for me), but 3 putted 4 times. Outside of shaky putting, my full shots felt as good as they ever have. Two Quads really ballooned the score. One was poor course management: Driver was great all day, so I went for it and put water in play, which ended i

  4. all over the place yesterday- 78 hacks around the course, thins, HUGE fats, pulls, low snap hooks off the tee. Unbelievably my short game kept me at just 2 over after 9, but you can only keep that going for so long. You know that way when you absolutely know what you are doing wrong, but just cant change it from the top of the swing? Tomorrow is another day and after a few youtube videos with drills to 'fix' my known issue, I will attempt to focus properly tomorrow. The game is no fun when you are trying a 'fix' on every shot

  5. - 43/40 = 83 (+11) - 5/15 FIR - 8/18 GIR (0 birdies) - 37 Putts (4 3-putts, 12 2-putts, 1 1-putt, 1 0-putt) - 2:45 Round Time One of those rounds where I honestly lost track of the score and was surprised once The Grint app added it all up. It was a very shaky day from 125 and in. Left approaches short of the green on several holes. Putting was not good. Irons were easily the best part of my game today, long irons especially, so that was today's saving grace. It's been a while since I was happy with my iron play after a round. Highlight of the round

  9. I just played 9 holes with a couple of friends after a great day of drinking beer and making stuffed peppers and home made tomato/vegetable juice. The front 9 of my home course is a par 34. I shot 39 with a very bad double bogey on a par 3. I duffed the tee shot.... duffed the next shot ... finally was on the green on the third shot and proceeded to 2 putt...lol. Oh well. It was a fantastic day spent with my buddies.... and the weather was perfect.

  10. A very poor 85 today... lots and lots of bogeys and only a few pars. It was the last day of our Men's Club Championship (I didn't play), and they had the Blue tees ALL the way back; and very tricky pins. I guess I should be happy that I didn't have any doubles or worse. The only highlight today was on the par 5 #13 hole. Pin was back and I had 115y for my 3rd shot; all carry over a large bunker. Caught my wedge just a little heavy; Hit my 4th shot out of the bunker one roll short of the hole for a rare par today.

  11. One of those days. I was solid off the tee but struggled with 100-115 yard shots. 39/48-87 with 3 bogeys on the front and 6 doubles on the back. C ourse we played today had some elevation changes which is odd for SE Virginia. Here is the tee shot from 16 and nope I didn't hit the green; tee shot was short and I ended up with........a double

  15. 45/43 for an 88 5/13 fairways 5/18 greens 34 putts I had two drives go out of bounds on 17 and 18 that really hurt my score. On 17 I hit an overcooked draw that found the trees and on 18 I hit a shot that I swore was just absolutely perfect, a fade that went down the right hand side of the fairway that should have kicked back left and had a chance to roll to the green. Three of my four longest drives have gone that way, but I couldn't find the ball and had to take a drop. The putter was on fire, this is my best round ever with the putter and for the round Arccos had my handicap with it at. 0

  16. Allie and I played in 2-person scramble today, and it was my first really meh putting day since starting the PuttOut testing. I didn't make anything over a foot today, missing a couple inside six feet. Of course, Allie only gave me two chances inside 10 feet, because she made everything else we had, so I didn't get to putt much. I've never seen her make so many putts inside 10 feet.

  19. You and me both. I think something is wrong when two major champions aren't at the Tour Championship and a guy who hasn't won until the BMW Championship went into the week with the lead. I did find the Tour Championship/FedEx Cup was simpler but the Majors need more value IMHO.

  20. I've recently bought into the Longleaf Tee System. I suppose it has a lot to do with my involvement with youth golf. But, quite frankly every course ought to consider this. The USGA should endorse this. Perhaps there could be some sort of incentive for employing the system. They're (USGA) always concerned about the state of the game and how to attract more players. Well, this could certainly do it IMO. Way more than "tweaking" the rules. https://www.uskidsgolf.com/play-and-learn/longleaf-tee-system

  26. Of course we do have to remember that there are finally tuned your athletes with just those resources - of those only a few hundred make a good living playing golf. Even if 4 got to a plus 2 - a highly improbable scenario, he’s still not playing professional golf or competing in high level amateur events. @Kegger huge improvements there!

  32. When it comes to PING many things come to mind, quality, engineering, performance and irons are among the first things most people will think of. And with the release earlier this year of the G410 irons, PING has hit on each one of those characteristics. Following the huge success of the G400 irons, PING has hit a home run with the striking black and red colors of this iron, as well as a being a bit more streamlined in all the right places. PING has achieved the rare feat of providing an iron that has a profile appealing to even the most discerning of golfers, but yet still offering

  34. Didn't end up watching the final round. Was out seeing Tarantino's latest flick. Happy to see Rory win. Had a great season. More than deserving of the W. Overall the format has to be considered a success in year one. Obviously there's going to be some years where the frontrunner just runs away with things but we got some real drama this year which was good to see. Sent from my Pixel 2 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  38. If I lived closer I'm not sure I'd really play anywhere else! And while driver payed off for me on 11, I payed for it on 10 but managed to escape with a bogey. It was a really fun design, beautifully kept, great conditions. And reasonably priced too! Absolutely no complaints from this guy.

  44. My wife joined me for today's round, and we had a blast! I had her drive the cart and showed her how to use the rangefinder so she could help with yardages. She also took some time to take some pictures, as she's an artist and saw some places she could use as reference for backgrounds. Since the course was not too busy, I asked her to come up to the green and gave her an impromptu lesson on putting. Her aim was good, but her distance control was a bit off. I tied a personal best, shooting an 88. I apologize to anyone who saw on Twitter I shot an 89, going back through the round I saw a drive

  45. Day 1 of our match play tournament and these irons are surprising me. My distances are all steady once I get comfortable. So far I'm loving the 7 thru A wedge. The control I've got with these irons is something I'm not used to on a regular basis. The 4-6 irons are still in a courtin phase with me. The grips I swapped with are doing well also for a not big name grip. Side note. Last week's round. I birdied the par 4, 2nd hole from 103 yds with the A wedge [emoji106] Tomorrow we'll be playing the second half of the tournament at one of my favorite courses. Hopefully the rain doesn't hurt us.

  49. Love the thread but I would answer no - All drivers produced by OEMs are of reasonably good quality - I agree with that premise - but certainly not the same. Each one has its theory as to how to get to max performance which means that certain heads will work better for certain swing types. With all due respect to some of our respondents it's most certainly not all about the shaft. It's all about the entire fit and as others have accurately stated a shaft/head combo from a certain OEM for a certain player will not necessarily mean that the same shaft is ideal in the next head for th

  50. Hi all I'm Matt from Mechanicsville, VA (Richmond area). I have been golfing since I was 13, so just over 23 years now. I haven't had a handicap in the past 2 years but previous to that I was a 10-12. I typically shoot in the low 90's and hoping to get back down to the mid 80's. I love that golf brings people together. I love that no matter how good or how bad you are, you can go out and have fun with friends. I also love that it's the only sport that you compete against yourself. I have been a lurker for a couple years, and decided to jump in and possi
