When it comes to hitting breakfast, I’m definitely a plus handicap. 😂 Hood luck with your surgery. 🍀

I drove the ball very well today.  Irons and fairway metals did their job.  My usual issues with short pitches/chips, but my putting today was horrendous!  Putting is typically my strength, but today it cost me far too many strokes.  Not sure why.  Just one of those days, I guess.  

After a couple of weeks with my Callaway Rogue ST driver and 4 wood, I have to say that it was a very good purchase.  I'm definitely getting better distances and dispersion with both clubs!  (Previous driver was Ping G400Max and prior 4 wood was a Tailor-made M4.)

1st round with the Nippon Modus³ Tour 115 shafts I'm reviewing for MGS in a midweek medal yesterday.

Played pretty good apart from 3 holes where I had 2 doubles & a triple bogey. Off the tee was pretty good and I was getting up & down well and putting solid. Really good distance control with the new putter, just reading a little off. 

Ended up with an 86, nett 71 - handicap cut -0.5 to 12.3.

Highlight was the 500y par 5 4th. 3 wood to 310y, 6i to 15ft but missed the eagle by a couple of inches 😞 

Edit: it was downwind a little...

Two 18s and one nine this week. Shot 39 on the front Monday by rebounding on the final four holes or so after a shaky start. Followed that with a very, very solid 41/37 -> 78 on Tuesday. Didn't hit anything all that well, but my short game and putting were on fire. I actually started on the back and nearly finished it at even par, just missing a putt on No. 18. Fell off a bit making the turn which was frustrating.

Finished this morning's 18 with a 40/41 -> 81. Hit the ball extremely well with my irons. Driver continues to be pretty squirrelly and cost me three strokes this morning. Mental mistakes (which make me so mad) cost me another two (resulting in two double bogies on the back). Short game just wasn't as good as Tuesday, but I've been putting a lot of pressure on my chipping and putting with the driver.

Felt really good to hit the ball well with my irons. Just need to get the driver sorted out now.

Honestly, sounds like you're right there. Keep it up!

Thanks. I'm very close. But it's been consistent and my short game has improved a ton. 

Did manage to bomb a perfect one leading to a par to finish today's round. Nice high baby draw up the hill. Something to build on heading into the next round.

Today was one of those "Best of times, worst of times..." days.  We got to River Heights and the first few holes were backed up, so after waiting around during the first hole, we decided to jump over to hole seven and just continue on from there.

Hole one: hacked my way down the course, then dropped a 32ft putt to "save" double bogey.

Hole seven: Short par threes are my nemesis right now with my irons such a mess.  Pulled my tee shot left, managed to chip over the bunker and two putt to save bogey.

Hole eight:  Another poor drive followed by a poor second shot.  A decent pitching wedge left me 33 feet past the pin, which I managed to sink for par.

Hole nine:  Another (!) poor drive, then a pulled 7 into water next to the hole.  Dropped, mis-hit my bump and run 7 iron which took an odd bounce and stopped two feet from the pin, lol. 

Hole ten: Hit a beautiful hybrid to the back of the green, then three putt.

Hole eleven: Pulled my six iron way left, then managed to bounce my wedge shot off the porta potty.

Hole twelve: A short par four that goes slightly uphill, I hit my best ever drive on this hole to within a foot of the green.  65 foot eagle opportunity with the putter wound up a few feet short, then mis hit the birdie putt.

Hole thirteen:  Driver was back to awful, topped my short hybrid, hit a good wedge shot that rolled just off the back.

Hole fourteen:  Topped my driver 70 yards, then hit my 3 wood 250 yards.

Hole fifteen:  After everything that happened so far, THIS was the breakdown hole.  Moving on.

Hole sixteen:  3 wood off the tee for 250, then more breakdown.

Hole seventeen: More awfulness save for a nice lob wedge over the bunker.

Hole eighteen: Driver back out, popped it 255 yards (another best for the hole), hit a nice wedge over the tree and bunker that guard the front of the green, two putt to finish for par.

 

If you're still reading, I shot +20 for thirteen holes, pretty on point for me lately. 

 

Couple things I'm realizing:  When both hit well, my three wood seems to go as long or longer than my driver.  Driver fitting sounds like a fun fix, though pricey and not likely.

Fairways and hybrids are good but I try to kill it too much leading to more poor strikes than good.

Irons are terrifying right now but actually showing signs of getting better.

Wedges are really coming along.  50-100 yards and just off the green are pretty good.  About 20-30 yards away is dicey.

When I actually take the time to do so, I can read the greens pretty well; now my execution needs to catch up.

 

The more I can get out during the week, the more I seem to pick up on.  These are some really good experiences.

... Just an idea. Keep your eyes open for Demo Days in the Chicago area. Cog Hill always has them along with many other courses. I have gotten quite a few emails from St Andrews (nearer to you) that have already had several. They are free and you can find out a lot concerning drivers and shafts that might fit you. Even though this is a sale, there is usually no pressure to buy at any of these events. Often the Rep knows a thing or two about the golf swing and might even have a few driver tips for your swing.

Well, what a trainwreck of a round for my 9 hole golf league. Driver wasn't working, irons weren't working,wedges weren't working and the putter...you guessed it...wasn't working. Needless to say, jumped out of the cart coming back to the club house and spent an hour chipping, putting and hitting the entire bag at the range to work out the issues.  Apparently my body forgot some of the basics....We'll see how it goes next week.

When I was playing my best (which wasn’t that good) my only practice was chipping & putting…..a lot.  
We lived about 1/2 mile from the course and had a large practice green.  About 3-5 evenings a week I would go there practice C&P then B4 dark head out and play a few holes mostly irons only.  Occasionally another guy or 2 would join me.  If I was alone I’d play 2-3 balls.  Really helped me.

After playing the game from the age of 13, at the age of 61 I hit my first hole in one yesterday.

Playing at tie at my Home course West Lothian Golf Club https://www.westlothiangc.com/course/. 18th, right in front of the club house, 135yds par 3 down hill with wind behind. A sweet hit Approach Wedge over the protecting bunker. Pitched about 2 feet from the hole and gently rolled into the hole. Got applause from the clubhouse and the Senior League team were on the 1st tee so they all congratulated me which added to the occasion

More than made up for losing the tie 3&2.

What made it sweeter is that I've been having problems with my irons and had the shanks up until a little work on the range on Wednesday.

I would do the same at a course about 5 min away until it closed about 6 years ago.  On course practice always was better for me than range sessions.
