That's just BEAUTIFUL , but did it hit the fairway?

Sadly that one did not. :(


But I’ll still take a birdie like that any day of the week. Challenge be damned! Haha

You hit the green, though and that counts for a point. I would take a birdie like that any day.

It takes a special level of accuracy to target those cart paths. Any bonus yards gained are earned as far as I’m concerned.

What a stunning summer morning.  This week the competition is all about FW and GIR so I went to the course with a different mindset than I normally do.  I was going to aim for the fat part of the fairway (within reason) and the middle back of the green on approaches.  All I have to say is damn... I might have to play that way more often.  Or maybe it was just the extra focus knowing that the real games have begun.

Here’s a link to my instagram post with some photos and videos of todays action:

 

And onto some key highlights:

New/Tied Personal Bests:

Score: 75 (+3) 

Arccos Handicap: 5.8

Birdies: 4 (ties my personal best)

Long Drive:  317 yards 

Fairways Hit - 6/14 (43%) - ties baseline

Greens in Reg - 11/18 (61%) vs 8/18 in baseline

I’m ecstatic with this start but I’m still wanting to get those Fairway Hit numbers higher for this week’s challenge.  I should have one more opportunity to get 18 holes in, but I know my competitors will be giving it their all too! 

I’ll end this post with a photo of the 17th green, a par 3.  The Forged Tec irons have been REALLY solid for me on par 3’s... I’ve been getting a lot of quality birdie looks out of them which is not usual for me.  Hopefully more good rounds to come!

For those of us doing the math, can you comment on your total number of FIR/GIR burgers? 😀

I have to double check... but I think it was 6 FW, 11 GIR and 3 burgers(x2).... so 6 + 11 + 6 = 23.  If I’m doing that right.

I fully expect the 6 and 11 to be NOT good enough to win this week. So 75 or not... I know I have more work to do!

I dunno, my ball striking has been in $hitter the last two days, and you know no one else can put up those numbers... so maybe. I’ve still got a few more opportunities though, and now I have a number to beat. 😉

How is the ARCCOS system used in this challenge?  Are testers able to review and edit the data for rounds prior to entering them into the database? I just used my Shotscope V2 in the "GPS + Trac" mode for the first time today.  It had a handful of my clubs incorrect and several putts incorrect - though that was my bad as I forgot to record the putt.  It also showed me putting a couple of times when I was on the apron - which recorded as a GIR.  Really like the watch and it and the software is easy to use.  Just got to remember to record putts and pin. 

I know ARCCOS has a putter tag but is it similar in this regards to other minor deviations?  

Lastly, what's the background story on how a FIR+GIR=Burger? 🤔

Yeah, that sounds pretty similar to my results, some minor errors here and there, but I correct those once I get home, and we all correct them before we submit our scores for the week.

Those aren’t that bad (for the rest of us). Haha

I know the kid has some sickeningly low rounds in there. And it sounds like he was starting to get in a groove at the end of his round.
