I've approached the last three rounds focused on my long-term swing changes. Thankfully they aren't too big of changes at this point, and I'm seeing good results. Some of my old habits still came back throughout my last couple rounds, especially when I try to reach back for "something extra" on the ball from time-to-time.

Two hooked tee balls leading to two penalties over the last two days being the result! Still scores were good:

  • 39
  • 38/36 -> 74

Besides the double caused by the tee ball this morning, I cancelled out three bogies with three quality birdies and had some good looks at a few more birdies that didn't fall. 

Hit some really, really solid shots and it feels good to see my driver start to cooperate with me which means the changes in what I'm doing are right. Hit some monsters today despite it being very wet and shaggy in most spots. According to ShotScope my best today were 281, 287, 293, 299 (uphill beauty, maybe the best drive of my life), 309 and 318 (downhill).

Nice round, Cody!!

Antsy to get my Shot Scope H4 in the mail and use it for this Saturday's round. You'll need to post a screenshot on @jlukes hole of the round thread!

Thanks! I tried my best not to get too frustrated with myself for the penalty and kept my cool better than I have recently. Resigning myself to committing to changes and scores being what they may be during that period is helpful. Otherwise I tend to get too wrapped up into the score and not the progress. (That being said, I probably hit another seven or eight shots this morning that were a bad mix of old/new swing, I just lucked out and missed in places that didn't hurt me too bad.)

You'll like the H4, I think. I keep a rubber band looped around the clip and the device so it doesn't inadvertently fall out. You can still tag the club okay and read distances even with the band running across the middle of the screen. I like mine for the most part! (I will also go post my drive in the thread...)

... Last 3 rounds 69, 74 and another 69 today as I am really swinging well again. Driver has been very reliable and it can be my Achilles' heel. Still some run but not like winter when fairways are hard and fast. Just nuked my drive on 18 and pard said "easily 300 or more" but after laser measuring it was 284. 🤪  I have been playing my LTDx Black driver last 3 rounds and it has produced several very long drives and hit every fairway but one in the bunker and to be fair two hit the side hills and rolled back into the fairway. But it has been my iron play with my MIM's that is setting up my birdies and had 3 iron shots inside 2 feet along with a 45 footer for eagle that left me a tap in birdie after a nice 4 iron from 205. Lipped out 3 birdie putts as well so could woulda shoulda ... 

... After struggling the month of July with nothing close to par, I am gonna ride this hot streak as long as it lasts. 

All about the approach play. Tee game is important but GIRs are king

I went to Flagstone today to play nine holes and see how my stamina would hold up after dealing with Covid this week. 

I can't say I played to bad considering I'm still not up to my usual amount of energy and the fact I was rushing a bit considering the heat index was brutal. 

I shot 56 with 16 putts, that's with one 3 putt and a 4 putt from 14 feet on 5. I made up for that a little bit on 6 by sinking an 18 footer from the fringe. 

Overall, it wasn't a bad day. My driving was mediocre, iron play was pretty good, my chipping was horrendous (way too many two chips), and my putting was its normal self except for the 4 putt. 

I lost two balls on errant drives that led to a couple of 8's on par 4's and I feel like if I could have cleaned that up, I could have shot better. I just got gassed and was trying to hurry up and finish. What I'm proud of is the fact that I was sticking to a better pre shot routine and was hitting the ball better from the fairway. It wasn't perfect, but it was progress and I'm happy with that.

I did manage to make par on the par 5 6th hole from a really bad spot. My drive was a pull hook that landed between tee boxes on 5. I hit decent 5 wood to the left edge of the fairway, I then hit a great 3 wood 30 yards short. My next shot was a chippy wedge that landed a hair long and left of the pin just off the fringe. I hit the 18 footer into the heart of the hole for the par. 

I feel like I've still got a long ways to go to get my game where I want, but am happy with being able to pull out some good shots today. I'm fairly tired after the round, but it was a blast getting out and playing. 

Did you walk or ride? The first couple times I played after COVID I was EXHAUSTED by the time I finished 9, even though I rode because of how hot it was.
