How'd you play?

Recommended Posts

Just shot an 89 at the Waldorf Astoria course in Orlando. Rented TaylorMade M4s, cart path only, no laser, and the cart gps was in meters. Despite all that it was obvious these clubs go for miles.

Today at Pebble Creek, I Shot a 40/43:83......nothing spectacular except I put a new putter in play. Cleveland Huntington Beach 11 Soft. It has a double milled center area and softer milled on the heel and toe areas. This is supposed to allow for even distances across the face of the putter.

So much better than yesterday. Having my irons back with the correct shaft might have had something to do with it.

Played pretty well yesterday.  Shot 75 with 29 putts, 67% fairways and 44% greens.  Lots of pressure on my short game and I did pretty well getting up and down.  Bogeys were a direct result of poor short game shots;  40-80 yards really killed me.

Day 2 at the Waldorf-Astoria course in Orlando and shaved a stroke off yesterday’s score for an 88. All TM rental bag and the clubs were fine but was charged full price for cart path only and no yardage markers where you needed them. M4 driver was straight as an arrow but a little shorter for me. Came up long and short a lot. Grrrr.....

+2 through 15 holes. I ain’t gonna complain too much. Had a 6 foot eagle putt on #3 which I missed. Just happy to be out playing and that it wasn’t raining.

Ran out to my home track and carded a yucky 49/47 for a 96 which leaks my HC back out of the teens... Had 3 pars but only a sniff at 2 real birdies. Putter was absent the whole day. Great day to get out though!

Monday morning 68* light breeze gorgeous morning. 44-42=86. It’s 6 shots higher than I’d like but not upset about it. Hit driver a little more consistent than last month and irons not too bad. Putter not working, missing by inches & lipouts all morning.
Actually hit my hybrid OK a couple times, need that working.

Yesterday at Babe Zaharias GC in Tampa. Weather was excellent, low 70’s to 86*. Shot s 42/44:86 with a birdie($22 hooray). Greens and Fairways were over seeded last week and not yet cut, yielding very difficult putting.

Shot an unspectacular 84 this morning. Weather great, 70* tee time 85 * at 11:30.
Best part of morning was one of my Buds had a 2 under Par 34 front 9, pretty cool!! His back 9 was, well not as great.
As for my game Driver is sporadic but I’m seeing some good stuff going on.

Hit a club reciprocal.course over in Lincoln City Tuesday. Needed to get out of town and a change of people and scenery. Resort course par 68 I believe. Not well kept but super challenging and the slope/rating should be much higher. Hilly, tight, and small greens. Shot 8 overwhich I was happy with since I hadnt played that course in 30 years. A laser rangefinder woykd have came in super handy. Fun day with a beverage and chowder to top it off. 

 

Played 9 on my home course last night. 6 or 7 over with a birdie. Back bothers me when It gets colder and didnt pop my meds soon enouhh before round. Tough when you are all arms first few holes. 

 

Probably only another round or two in me before I have surgery on my hands.

Rough start , +4 thru front, but settled down with a -1 on back for a +3 total. My normally good driving was sketchy today for some reason, but the Hybrid was strong. One time to get me on in 2 on a par 5 for a birdie, then the next hole driver hit a tree and left me in the bark, 190 uphill, and the Hybrid got me on to save par.

funny how some days a certain club gets good results...really good.

All of this in 48 degrees. IMG_2371.PNG

The highlight of the day came on #6, which in my opinion is the hardest par 5 in Tallahassee. It’s a 600 yard par 5 that forces you to draw the ball right to left off of the tee into a tight landing area with OB right with trees and trees on the left. There is also a creek that runs across the fairway at about 320 yards, but you can still take driver off of the tee unless you absolutely crush one then you need to lay back a bit.

Anyway, I hooked my drive a bit and it ended up in a puddle on the cart path. So I took my free drop and hooked my 4 hybrid way left which is not a big deal because once you walk over the creek it opens up on both sides. My ball landed right near the sand trap to the next hole and I had a lie on the back of the bunker with my ball way below my feet. I also was slightly blocked from going straight at the green by a tree.

No problem I say (well, I won’t tell you what I said, I’m keeping this G rated). So I have 158 to the middle of the green. I pull out my 7 iron and let it rip. My ball nicks a leaf from the tree but it keepa going. I lost sight of it and just looked at the green hoping I would see where it ended up. Well dang, I see the ball hit about a foot from the flag stick and stop about 2 feet from the hole. Tap in birdie.

I think I’ve birdied this hole once before. I honestly can’t remember because usually I am just thrilled with making par on this beast of a hole.

Heard its going to be dry tomorrow so planning a roll up game (all comps finished ages ago) plus its dark at 4pm these days. Ground is sodden so course will play longer.

Probably my last game for awhile unfortunately as its cold and rain forecast from Monday onwards.

 

Trying out my 'new' takeaway tomorrow so if it works it will keep me feeling warm and fuzzy all winter😄

These are the days that remind you that you can never master this game and sometimes you are hanging on for dear life as you watch you golf game turn to

Had a very good day at even par. Started with a chip in from 50 yrs for eagle on 1.

      Next steps to my road to improvement
      Current
       Adding the Mizuno MMC FliHi 4 iron to the bag once it comes it to replace my hybrid. The hybrid has too significant of a draw bias, not terrible, but I also draw the ball naturally already, and will probably go in and out of the bag, but I'm looking for better shot shaping with the FliHi and have that 210 to 225 distance into the green and off of the tee. Working on my putting. I'm rolling the ball nicely now with a slightly open stance with my current putter. I have another putter that I can get the ball rolling online, but the pace is off. Future step is to actually get fit for a putter. Working on my natural tempo and swing speed for the driver to have more consistent drives. See below for more info. Next
      Driver shaft optimization. Not looking for a new head yet. I like my 2017 M1 460. Interested in the journey of testing some shafts. Right now my shaft is determining what kind of shot I can do. Slower speed and tempo than my natural speed and tempo. This has lead to a great deal of inconsistency of trying to find the "magic speed and tempo" and I know that isn't the way to go. Swing speed training. I'll have multiple shafts at this point so I can game whatever is best fitting me as I go along. And I can always swing a little slower or club down to hit a fairway. Future
      Get fitted for a putter > get fitted for a driver/shaft and woods from a high level, reputable company willing to discuss numbers and takes the time and right approach. Open to custom shafts and not just from the OEM cart like at a Golf Galaxy. I have only been fitted to a driver once, but didn't purchase as I did not like the experience, small selection of shafts, and I wasn't swinging my natural speed and tempo like I should have.

      I'm really liking the new UI on this forum. It looks really clean!
