Great progress!

I started the year off 20, and have whittled down to 12.8, so that's really exciting. Broke 80 for the first time as well! Practiced my short game more consistently than I have before, and found a number of thoughts and concepts that have been game changers for me. A little sad to see the season wrapping up, but I'm excited to try and keep working on my game! Hopefully I can find some places to keep my swing roughly on par over the winter so it's not back to square 1 come spring.

That is awesome!  Congrats!

I'm sure being an MGS Tour Edge tester helped as well 😉

Like you wouldn't believe! My fairways found are up almost 6% since starting testing of the EXS Pro, and more importantly I've been losing waaaay less tee balls to hazards.

@edingc and I were talking about one of the sneaky positive parts of MGS testing is it forces you to practice that aspect of your game, probably more than you would have! I know that's been helping my tee balls, in addition to throwing in a really really good club to the bag 😉

MGS continues to be my outlet for connecting with other people who love the game like I do, really appreciate y'all!

Positive progress led to consistency.

I wasn't terribly happy with how I played during the competitive rounds of the Cobra Connect Challenge, but looking back on my scores for the year I was way more consistent than last year. I had 29 18 hole rounds of 85 or less, including five rounds in the 70s (79, 79, 78, 78, 76 - new personal best).

It's nice to step away and think about things on a higher level. There were quite a few moments this season where I've been more than upset about the state of my game, but I'm realizing I made progress this season and also have some goals in mind for next year.

Absolutely! Plus .. what was totally new for me during my first testing opportunity .. was having to think about the WHAT of what I was doing more objectively.

(..and then - find a way to communicate it all in a way that made sense - that in itself was a bit of a learning experience!)

golf courses are over priced.

 I get that they are trying to make up for some lost income early in the year but one course is charging 90(!) dollars this year for the same round that was 50 last year.

Can't complain.....Glad I'm Back.

 

After a number of years away from the game (golf always took a backseat financially). I'm looking ahead to a lot of golf and enjoyment I had playing the game as a young person. Wrist and hand are now fixed and healing well. Even pulled off an 83 my last round before surgery.

Going backwards mate. Changing my swing was the smartest/dumbest thing I've done this year so far.

Oh, yea swing changes are tough. As difficult as it is, try not to think about mechanics on the course and think about fairways and greens.

Statistically, I learned a lot.

Basically, in more depth, this year was pretty much a test run for 2021. I didn't play as much as I wanted with Covid and what not, and the bag was basically a complete overhaul outside of driver and putter. Good news, I learned through my Ping G710 testing and accompanying Arccos that I'm not putting as well as I used to, and that my short game and approach game is helping me make up for that. Winter 2020 is gonna be focused on a fitness program maybe, perhaps with Superspeed and getting a good competent fit for a putter, perhaps also a driver as those were my negative SG categories and maybe landing a good hybrid instead of this 5 wood.

I think for most of us, 2020 will be remembered as a lost season, but hopefully you got something out of it to spring board you into 2021 on the right foot.
