  1. Played a round on the island during my honeymoon, and the wife got a lot of good pictures. I had another great round when the winds were in the 25+ range. Score: 78 Putts 30 GIR 8/18 FIR 4/14
  2. She wanted to go ride horses, so it worked out perfectly lol
  3. I wanted to get a quick round in this evening before I go on my honeymoon tomorrow, but with a home A&M game this weekend against bama I could only get 9. I had a great day, 37!! FIR 5/7 GIR 5/9 PUTTS 16 So with recently breaking 80, I figured my next milestone is breaking 75, or breaking par on one of the 9’s. My swing is feeling and apparently looking really good. I 3 putted two GIR, so now that I’m hitting more greens I need to work on lag putting more during the week. This round definitely gives makes me think it may happen sooner than I expected. I plan on playing a round on my honeymoon, but that will just be a round for fun.
  4. Had another round with 29 putts and 8 one putts!! It must have a cheat code in the grooves.
  5. I have a brag, this weekend I completed my year long goal of breaking 80!!! Since my swing changes started a year ago I have gone up 6 points. literally on the tee box of hole 1, my pro gave me a quick tip to feel in my swing and it really helped. This weekend my handicap went down a full stroke. On Saturday I ran into a buzz saw match where I shot my best and @crbishopshot his personal best of 75. It was a great weekend for my confidence. Saturday's Round 79 FIR 8/14 GIR 7/18 Putts 29 Shot 38 on the back!! Sunday's Round 83 FIR 8/14 GIR 6/18 Putts 34 My ball striking really improved with the tip pre round Saturday, but I also mentally changed to where I am just trying to get it on the green. Then with my chipping and pitching I was trying to hit it past the hole, and I stopped coming up short. Sunday I wasn't as diligent with these mindsets and it shows in GIR and putts, I went at pins I shouldn't have and missed the greens, and with my chips I was trying to get it close instead of just getting it on and past the hole and came up well short. These were my best two rounds by far, but I still have some things I need to improve.
  6. I finally beat my buddies again, its been months since I have even been close. I found something on the range that worked with my feels, and I had a really good front 9 of 41, but just had couldn't get any putts to fall, and added two doubles on the back for 46. I really feel like I am close to putting it together. I didn't have any really horrible shots, just a tough conditions day mixed with sanded greens didn't seem to help. Also, I am loving the Taylormade Milled Grind 3 54*, it has been money.

    LEFT DOT!!

    I posted my review to Titleist, and I really liked these balls. They did, just as Titleist said, I noticed it was a lower ball flight, and never had one balloon on me. I could still get all the spin I wanted, I had several I could pull back, and on pitch shots it would check up and stop on a dime. As for now, I think I will stick with the TP5x, it is high like the pro 1x, but spins like a pro v1. The pix is also a huge plus to me.
  8. I am in the same boat as you right now. I am working on swing changes, and my handicap has gone up almost 4 from where I started. I did end up switching to the Ping g410 plus, and it helped me keep it in play and I am hitting more fairways, and it has helped my scores no longer go up. I have seen a distance drop though. I have thought of changing irons, but I do not want a bandaid I want real changes. One thing that is helping me stay on the path of improvement is from Butch when he was working with Tiger, and said it took him a year for what they were working on to set in, and we all saw what he did in 2000 and after. Although our yearly goals may be out of the picture, but maybe not. I am tweaking mine for the rest of the year to see if I can hit a small goal. Stick with it
  9. I was going through my videos of yesterday's range session, and I was really on my toes. My pro came out and helped me with my move off the ball, and was noticing me holding onto the face instead of releasing the clubhead. I know no one said swing changes, and breaking habits were easy, but I was really close to just throwing in the towel. Today I am going to work on half swings and try to feel a punch shot to add some compression to my irons. Baby steps
  10. Played a so so 9 holes yesterday afternoon. I am still trying to recover from my wedding weekend. I really need to work on my misses, but that is nothing new. I have a lesson with my pro on Friday for my longer clubs, my long par 3's are killing me. Score 44 GIR 3/9 FIR 4/7 PUTTS 19 Penalties 2
  11. I played a round with my buddies after work yesterday, and I had a lot of positives. I shot an 84 with 3 penalties, but my ball striking keeps improving, and this was the best my swing has felt since the changes. My driver and putter was on beast mode, and I had a personal best 8 one putts with a total of 29 putts. I need to play the par 5's better, and fewer drop shots. Also, I played the Pro V1x, and I was really fighting too much spin, so some really good iron shots came up short of green, but I have been trying the TP5x and really liked it. I also have a dozen Pro V1 Left Dot that I will try as well. I just need to use the V1x first. I will go to the range to see if I can keep building while it's hot. Score 84 FIR 50% GIR 17% Putts 29
  12. Yesterday’s round my putter was on fire!! I had my best putting round by far. 29 putts 8- 1 putts (PB) I had so much confidence yesterday, and my buddies keep joking about how is the Evnroll even legal. One negative, the head came loose during the round, I’m hoping it was just the screw on the bottom, I still need to check. I play a public course, so no one repairs ball marks, so I guess when I was tapping it down it came noticeably wobbly. I didn’t have my tool with me, but I will carry it going forward.
  13. That is so true, and I keep reminding myself that it will take time. That’s what I thought would be best too. Thank you
  14. I had such a rough round on Monday, I felt like I was fighting my swing the whole front 9. My driver was so straight, but I kept having the killer over the top creating my pulls, which is what I am working on in lessons with my pro. After hole 12 I just put the scorecard away, to just try to take some pressure off and just see if I could hit some good shots. Then on 13, I hit 6 iron to 2 feet and really thought I had my first hole in one, and from then on I started playing alot better. I do try to focus on the positives of the round, my ball striking is the best it has ever been, and I have hit some of the best shots of my life this last month when I get it right. I am scratching my head on whether I need another lesson this week, or just grind on the range on what I am needing to work on to get rid of the other the top pulls.
  15. I have used the adidas sleeves to prevent sun exposure. They were too tight for my arms, and I could never get comfortable. I may try Nike or SParms, I don't have huge arms, but it is to the point where I have been looking at long sleeve shirts.

    LEFT DOT!!

    I tee off at 2 on, and I just got the notification left dot was delivered at my house. I’ll put a sleeve into play for my round tomorrow.
  17. Had to hit off mats yesterday, so my main focus was alignment. I really need to hit more greens, and my misses are right or left, not so much distance related. I need to do this every time from now on, it really helped.
  18. So, I worked on my Wellstroke trainer, and my putting is good again. I got that feeling of "I can make it from anywhere" again.

    Mine says it will be here Saturday, so I will have it for my holiday weekend rounds.

    LEFT DOT!!

    I was able to get a dozen as well!! Since I’ve switched to a fade, I have been losing distance with my irons especially.. I was going to try the left dash but didn’t need the height. I tried the pro V1x and liked it, but still had a lot of spin. So I’m hoping this is going to be really good. Excited for them to come in!
  21. I’m looking to add forgiveness to my set, not playing as often so it’s needed. The T200 are at the top of my list, the looks are an added bonus.
  22. Amazing video!! I now have a goal to achieve this level of quality. I am itching to go try the T200's now.
  23. Yes, there is the metal rod that runs through it, I do have a weight in the superstroke, but I will have to do the math to see if it is close. I do not think it is enough, but I will check, because I bought it for a different setup. Do you think if I add lead tape under the grip it would help, or would I need to get the bigger weight?
  24. I'm not sure, I did not check. I do not feel a massive difference, but I am horrible at feeling those things. I think I got very used to the feeling of my palm to target, and I may need to check my hand placement. I may see if my local store can check swing weight.
  25. So I switched grips, and I went back to the Superstroke Pistol GT 1.0. I am already missing the Gravity grip. I had a bad putting day this weekend, more down to misreading greens, and a ton of lip outs. I setup my normal 5 tees at 5 and 10 feet, and I was not any where near as good. I will get it some time and see if it continues, but if not next time I go back to Houston, I will switch back to the gravity grip.
