This experience has 100 percent validated the tour length for me. I'm not saying everyone should run out and chop down their drivers, but as someone with slightly longer than "standard" arms for my height, having the driver be just a bit shorter has done wonders for my game off the tee.

I also hit two awesome shots with the 54 degree wedge today and continue to really, really love the KING MIM Blacks. That includes this one from something like 105 out on No. 13 that tracked the pin so well that I thought I almost dunked it when it hit the green (Obviously, my depth perception needs a little work, but this was a great birdie chance that slid just right of the hole). Perfect hop and stop with a tiny bit of pull back.

It did try that at the range yesterday before our round, choked up about a half inch or more on the driver. It’s definitely a different setup and felt as though as I was standing more upright. Contact was good, but my goodness, the ball flight was definitely lower and more piercing. I have such an ingrained routine on the tee box that I didn’t try it all while out playing 18, but it’s something I’ll be practicing more and eventually utilize out on the course.

I’ll be posting an update on my round yesterday in a bit, but playing Red Tail was an both a beast and a blast with this challenge. It forced me to really focus on every shot.

The biggest take away from this challenge for me is that when you miss a green the first priority is absolutely to get the ball on to the green. Then you can start to think about the flag. Too many times in the past I’ve left myself with a second chip because of not getting into the green. That would have been a big no-no in this challenge.

Also, it felt really good to hit some balls at the range before playing. I do miss that during my morning rounds. This was after my last 7-8 balls warming up:

Did anyone else found that the hardest part of the challenge was to keep track of the clubs that were used, not hitting the shots? 

I used Arccos to keep track and that made it pretty easy. It was the thinking 3-4 holes ahead that kept me in my toes

Ok @daviddvm here is my entry for this week. I decided to play a different course than the previous challenges and I played the back tees for a distance of 6730. The course today is WAAAAAY more narrow than the other and quite a bit more difficult so I wasn't sure how this was going to go.  I am trying to decide between Arcoss and shotscope so I took my V3 out there to track the round today and for the 2nd straight time it didnt work, so things were off to a rough start. 

 

1665413252_image4(2).jpeg.5671c3ebd2068b86a7af224c88aa37a3.jpeg

Honestly, this was my best challenge so far.  I was so caught up with thinking about the current shot and what clubs I needed to leave myself for the next hole that I didn't realize that I was even through 8 holes. Then, one skanky block ruined it all and things started moving too fast... tripled 9, doubled 10 and I was done. I tracked my club usage using a blank card.  Just so you all know I only play with 13 clubs (PW-5) including the putter so there was no funny business going on here. The few holes where I struggled really threw off my plan as I had to modify some greenside shots like a short sided 3 wood and a 5 iron bump and run.

As you can see, it was good until it wasn't. I felt like I really missed an opportunity today....for the last few weeks I have felt like I am on the verge of it all coming to together at the same time.  The challenges have helped me tremendously.  I have learned so much about my game and that I truly CAN compete even if I am not hitting my driver well I have plenty of other options that can get the job done.

My challenge round was a massive struggle.  Ended up 90 net 84. Par 71 rating 71/128.  Conditions were about as tough as I've played in. My method for was to stick a piece of painters tape on the club once it had been used, then remove it after it was used in the next rotation.

Wind was a solid 25mph when I started, and seemed to get stronger. Fairways were very soft with no run. To top things off the greens were very fast with a lot of difficult pin positions. It was virtually impossible to stop the ball downwind and downhill. Twice the ball stopped rolling after I had played my shot, cleaned my club, stuck tape on it, put it away and walked 30 metres. 

By the end I was drained. After spending 2 days rocking backwards and forwards in the corner I've finally got the energy back to post my score.

 

The challenge itself was tough enough, but the conditions combined with it made it brutal. There is no way I would have played if I hadn't challenged @daviddvm.  The weather has been even worse since, hopefully it improves and things dry out before next weeks challenge.

 

I hope no one else had to put up with conditions like I did.

Bravo on your fortitude!

Took the momentum from yesterday's nine holes and ran with it this morning. 
20200823.gif.133b29052e4df29f3e2aa826e7796e88.gif
Set a new personal best (by two strokes) with a 76!
handicap.png.bcb86f0af4bb34dbfc96bccd3047d983.png
Played the back nine at even par for the second day in a row. I birdied No. 12 for the first time all year, just missed birdie putts on 13 and 15, plus a few that went hole high leaving tap in pars from about a foot. I hit 10 greens overall. Turned my bag over three full times and didn't have too much trouble, save for a wasted 6 iron on No. 9 that went no where when I tried to play a long chip from the very wet fairway. Did end up having to hit a cut up 8 iron from 110 yards over water on No. 14 (knee knocker!), and the same thing with a 7 iron from about 75 yards on No. 15.

Struck my irons and wedges really well, putted well, and minus about five holes I got off the tee OK. I'm ecstatic that I saved bogey as often as I did on the front as I had four holes with terrible tee shots. Hit a hosel rocket driver on No. 3 less than 100 yards, drop-kicked a 4 iron on No. 6, pull hooked an 8 iron way long and left of the green on No. 8 and smacked a tree on No. 9 with the 3 wood. Still, I saved bogey on three of the four holes and parred everything else to make the turn with a 40.
badteeshots.jpg.8da3157638a39e4e0ccb10f34903f182.jpg
Tee game was much better on the back nine. I hit two fantastic 2 hybrids about 240 each on No. 10 and No. 11, and then, after I caught up with a twosome in a cart that let me play through on No. 14 tee, I smashed a great driver 260-ish onto the uphill fairway with the audience. (Felt good!)
I reset the bag on No. 16, so I had driver and 3 wood available to me on Nos. 17 and 18. I knew two good holes would put me in the 70s, but didn't really realize where I was at. I absolutely drilled both tee shots right down the pipe.

Not good enough for first or second place this week, but man I'm still on a high from it. Such a fun round.

Well played!! Looks like you’re stringing together some good golf!

Score 81, Slope 133, rating 71.9 on the silver tees (6694 yards).

I have to say this Challenge was a lot more fun than I thought it would be, especially since I’ve only played this course once before, many moons ago.  The first time through the bag went very well.  To the point where I had to putt with two of my MIM Black wedges.  My plan going in was to reserve my 52* 56* and 60* wedges for one use through a cycle.  so since I did not need them on the first two holes I needed to use one on each of the next three so restart my bag on time.  The second time through the bag got thrown off immediately, but it ended up working out fine because there we some holes that the tee was moved and I was able to adjust.  Putting saved me on several holes but I generally played well.  I did use my putter from 10-15 yards of the green two or three times and was getting comfortable with that towards the end of the round.  

Red Tail is a real treat, at one point it was rated in the top 50 public courses in the USA.  The holes are challenging and varied and the greens have subtle breaks and tiers to work around.  I wasn’t initially sure I was going to give the challenge a second go, but I got all fired up when I saw @daviddvm post a low number.  Unfortunately I think I still missed his excellent round by 3 or 4 strokes but I did improve from my first go around.  

Congratulations to all who tried this challenge! I was more focused through out the round and will hope to carry that forward in future rounds.

I assume this course is in Mass.?

Took the momentum from yesterday's nine holes and ran with it this morning. 

20200823.gif.133b29052e4df29f3e2aa826e7796e88.gif

Set a new personal best (by two strokes) with a 76!

handicap.png.bcb86f0af4bb34dbfc96bccd3047d983.png

Played the back nine at even par for the second day in a row. I birdied No. 12 for the first time all year, just missed birdie putts on 13 and 15, plus a few that went hole high leaving tap in pars from about a foot. I hit 10 greens overall. Turned my bag over three full times and didn't have too much trouble, save for a wasted 6 iron on No. 9 that went no where when I tried to play a long chip from the very wet fairway. Did end up having to hit a cut up 8 iron from 110 yards over water on No. 14 (knee knocker!), and the same thing with a 7 iron from about 75 yards on No. 15.

Struck my irons and wedges really well, putted well, and minus about five holes I got off the tee OK. I'm ecstatic that I saved bogey as often as I did on the front as I had four holes with terrible tee shots. Hit a hosel rocket driver on No. 3 less than 100 yards, drop-kicked a 4 iron on No. 6, pull hooked an 8 iron way long and left of the green on No. 8 and smacked a tree on No. 9 with the 3 wood. Still, I saved bogey on three of the four holes and parred everything else to make the turn with a 40.

Tee game was much better on the back nine. I hit two fantastic 2 hybrids about 240 each on No. 10 and No. 11, and then, after I caught up with a twosome in a cart that let me play through on No. 14 tee, I smashed a great driver 260-ish onto the uphill fairway with the audience. (Felt good!)

I reset the bag on No. 16, so I had driver and 3 wood available to me on Nos. 17 and 18. I knew two good holes would put me in the 70s, but didn't really realize where I was at. I absolutely drilled both tee shots right down the pipe.

1718.jpg.cd43ba09014cf08056010ea01beddbbe.jpg

Not good enough for first or second place this week, but man I'm still on a high from it. Such a fun round.

Very very nice. Nothing like shooting a PB while doing some craziness with your bag. Was this the same course/tees from your first attempt?

Ah, yes, same tees, rating etc. Just better results!

It was probably a bit longer than Tuesday's round though. They pushed a bunch of tees way back because they've had so much play this season the boxes are starting to get eaten up a bit. Makes me even more happy with the score.

TPC is only about 30 min from me. I’ve been there for the tournament a handful of times. 

They have an awesome set up for kids with special viewing areas for them that are up close to the players.
