Tried to do 9, was playing really well +1 after 5, however I was breaking in some foot joy icon blacks and they gave me a blister on my left Achilles so I quit early. Really bummed about the new shoes

Don't like the first part but LOVE the second. Gotta be part Aussie!

It's golf.  The day before I couldn't get out of the sand.  I guess I was just practicing... and it paid off.

Bad again today.Doing everything the pro told me too focus on.According to him my "positions" are perfect on video and should yield great results.Than why does the ball go so badly in an actual round?Im the rare one who did better with an odd-unorthodox over the top swing

Very frustrating day.  Was hitting my irons beautifully.  When I could, tee shot was only working half the time.  And didn't make a putt all day.  Good thing, only one double bogie (I usually have 3 or 4 or more, even on good days), bad thing, only 3 pars.  Feeling really good about the irons though, keeping my new found distance (club to club and a half longer) and getting much more accurate.  Playing again tomorrow, we're having the longest stretch of absolute perfect golf weather I can remember.  High of 80, sunny, light winds.

Had a very interesting round Saturday: Played in a skins game, and started out double, par, double, birdie, birdie. Won a skin off the second birdie which was a nasty 10 foot side hill putt which broke 3-4 feet and I hit it directly in the side pocket. From there I played bogey or so golf. Ended up shooting 39/46 for a somewhat disappointing 85. Still hitting my driver pretty well although it was my irons turn to shine.

We've all been there... Just push through and throw up a good score on your next outing - that will make you forget about that bad round :)

Well I kinda did that yesterday. I had 45 for 9 holes, which is better than my current handicap of 21.5. How we got there, is an adventure. Started off Par, Par and then proceeded to go triple, Par,Triple, bogey, bogey, bogey, par. 2 of those pars were good enough to earn me skins so there was that, but the lesson of the night is KEEP THE DAMN BALL IN PLAY. The 2 triples had me hitting 3 from the tee (flied one right OB, topped one into a forced carry water hazard). I hit a couple shots that I missed right that had they been on target would have set me up for an eagle and birdie putt (made par on both) but such is life.

Next day, same course, same conditions.  Same Driver results, but only five or so 'quality' strikes with the irons, rest were just a bit off, with one awful. But putting and short game was much better, so shot 44/42 86.  3 doubles, 7 pars.  Wish the elements would come together in the same round more often.  Lately its been drive well, rest 'meh', flush irons, rest 'meh', good short game, rest 'meh'.  Scores are best when its the short game on, however.

I'm in the frustrated camp today :( Had my 9 hole golf league yesterday. Hit 86% of the fairways and a whooping 11% of the greens. Ended up in a lot of left greenside sand traps as I was pushing everyone of my approaches and of course my sand play was less than stellar. Back to the drawing board.

Getting my driver back in order, which is making things a lot easier. Tuesday, shot a 41/42:83, and today shot a 39/41:80. Both good scores for me - and hopefully on the road to better this season!

Anne arundel county. Quite a few of us in the Baltimore Metro area. We have a gathering this weekend on Sunday at compass Pointe if your interested. We play all around the DMV. Played Bulle Rock a couple times last year which BTW, I just saw was being put up for sale by the developers! Anybody have a couple million for it that I can borrow?! Lol

I'm playing twice a week now.
That's a huge reason I'm playing better than ever. Other reasons:
Callaway 816 driver, 3-wood, and hybrid -- these clubs are long and true, and easy to hit - par-5's are always in play now
Nike putter- a 3-putt is a rare event these days

The key to it all is a totally simplified swing. Solid base with weight on right instep during backswing - result is no "swaying"
Keeping the club face closed on backswing. - I have no idea why this helps so much, but it really makes all the difference in the world.
Hitting the ball hard. - this probably sounds funny, but to hit a good shot, you need to compress the ball. It's not a big long John Daly backswing, it's more like a John Rahm swing. Just enough to get the club in a position to really bring it at contact.
Laser rangefinder. - really knowing the distances, and really knowing how far you actually hit your clubs is EVERYTHING.

MY weakness is my really short chipping game. I don't practice that enough. When the pros are just off the green, they actually expect to hole out their chips. And if they don't, more often than not, they are within a very few feet.
That is the area that I know is my weakness, and I know that if I practice those situations more, I would really be a threat to break par at any given day.
But I choose to not have the time for that as I have too many other things I like to do. And I understand and accept that reality. I can't complain about my game, because I know what's working and what isn't, so for that reason, I'm out...

Been playing really well recently. Was beating my buddy, who has played for 10+ years, yesterday by a couple of strokes. That is until the last hole, where I blew up. Everything is coming together it feels like. My putting has never been better. I cannot remember the last round with a 3 putt, and I feel like that may be one of the strongest parts of my game at the moment. I have the Sigma G Anser to thank for that.

Cannot wait for the rain to pass these next couple of days so I can get back out there.
