Hope we see this thread filled up with round from the MGS outing today. 

Haha I was too ashamed.... 🤪

But here are the (very few) highlights:

Saturday/River - 1st hole decent enough tee shot (Gold/Senior tee) into the right rough but high and dry; 2nd shot nailed a 6i (which I rarely hit, usually just my escape from jail club) and and hit the green!; 2 putt par! 2nd hole short Par 3 (the one behind the cottage) .. pin high right and down in the bunker; stabbed it out to the right of the pin; sightly downhill but reasonably straight putt and roll it in for an up & down par!

Sunday/Lakes - another short Par 3 flag back-right .. landed pin high right in the Bermuda rough and kinda short-sided .. bump it out with the LW onto the fringe and ball rolls out even with the pin .. fairly straight putt for another up & down par!

And the rest? The rest is (forgotten) history my friends... 😉

About a week and a half ago, @DiscipleofPenick made a suggestion that I shorten my iron swing as it had gotten very long (I assume SuperSpeed is at least partially to blame). The past couple rounds have been much better from an iron perspective and I'm really happy about it. Last night in league, a different issue popped up - my intention was to stick with the long swing for driver as it had been working pretty well and reign it in for irons. The problem was I didn't feel right with a driver and I assume I had some awkward in-between swing that wasn't totally effective. I didn't get into any real trouble, just short and weird - a couple pulls and a couple heely sliders. Approach and short game saved me, though, and I ended up with a 39 (+4). I was E on the three par 3's, -1 on the par 5's, and +5 on the par 4's (with 1 double). My best shot was was about a 180 yard 6 iron on the 9th that I stuck to about 10 feet. Never mind that I totally brain-farted the birdie putt and left it 3 feet short 🤦‍♂️. Fortunately, I made the par.

Been there. And 💯 agree that it’s a combination of SuperSpeed and the weighted SKLZ yellow ball trainers that did it for me, too. 

My irons were beginning to get a bit long as well, that I began focusing too much on my take away and shortening my back swing … to the point that I was using just all arms.

Realized after a few holes that I wasn’t really rotating my hips and pushing weight down onto the inside of my right foot. 

Led to a lot of really hard draws, pulls or arrow straight shots that started dead left. Was seeing that both with my driver and iron swings. 

A better hip turn/rotation on the takeaway fixed it.

41/42 for an 83 today in a Men's club tournament... Walking in 104 degree heat.  One stroke off a win in gross and net for my flight.

I can honestly say that I think this is the most focused round I have ever played.  I was great off the tee 11/14 FIR.  Reasonable on approach.  only 6 GIR, but the misses were mostly just off for the others and 31 putts.  I had a lot of reasonable birdie looks inside 15' but couldn't get one to drop.  I ended with 10 pars, 6 bogeys, a double, and a triple.  All six of the bogey cleanups were tap ins after burning the edge.  Just like Will Zalatoris 😉 I'm a couple inches away from hitting pay dirt. 

The double was dumb dumb.  I was just off the green on a par 3, got too cute and drop kicked my bump, left 12', burned the edge, the promptly lipped out the resulting two footer, before finally tapping in for the crowd pleasing double.   🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

The triple was the result of two bad swings.  Off the tee I drop kicked a ball right into the hazard in front of the tee.  Laying three I hit a very conservative 6 iron to 230 at the dog leg.  I then pulled three wood swung for the fences and promptly sliced shot 4 into the trees.  😑  Hit a great 58 over and around some trees to 25' and two putted.  Ugh.  

I'm proud of myself though I took it shot by shot, stayed focused, and matched my personal best for pars in a competition.  

Side note:  I think hydration was really key to staying focused today.  I brought 6 bottles of water and gatorade with the aim to drink one every hole (refilling one or more every hole).  It almost worked too well.  I thought I might wet my pants standing on the sixth green and had to hustle over to the bathrooms right after holing out.  😜

Best year EVER for most rounds shot in the 70's. I've shot more sub 80 rounds this year than I have in the previous decade.

Hats off to you, Sir! Very nicely done 👍

I was not sure which thread to post this in but here goes my thoughts on my golfing scores/results thus far in 2022. Best year EVER for most rounds shot in the 70's. I've shot more sub 80 rounds this year than I have in the previous decade. With that said, it's August with a few months left to add even more.  My goal is to shoot my age (71) and it bumps to 72 in November so I'll have another stroke to play with. My lowest round this year was a 74 with two doubles so I could have shot my age if only for those two holes. Oh well my eyes are on the prize and I'm going to nail that sucker before 2023 arrives. You gotta believe!

How have I shot boocoo rounds below 80?

*I've practiced a ton with my short game from 40 yards in and have gained a significant amount of skill in that area.

** I am now gaming equipment that I have 100 % confidence in and when you are comfortable with your sticks, good things can happen.  

*** I am driving the ball further and straighter than I have in MANY years.   Ball in the fairway or close to it equals better scores. This year I have hit drives on certain holes that I only could have dreamt of in the past. I work out hard at my gym  three days per week so strength is a big bonus but at my age flexibility trumps muscles. 

I'm ready for some cooler temps to keep me fresh for my shooting 71 .  I walk 95% of my rounds so the heat this year has been rough. Less humidity will definitely help keep my focus up for the back nines. Let's get er done! 💣

“”Boocoo”!!  Haven’t heard that in a while😁.  
You’re right about the gym for us “seasoned” players.  I’m sure my recovery for shoulder & knee replacements wouldn’t have been as successful without the gym.  
I’m 9 weeks from knee replacement as today kicked a couple of the Boyz asses on the Par 3’s and on a Par 4!  I hit 2 8irons, wedge to 3’ and 1 putt.

Friday Bacon Boyz Exec 9.  Getting looser everyday.  Played from Regular Tees with 9iron max, if it was a long Par 3 played it as a 2shot to green.  Par 4 was played same way, 2 9irons then chip & putt.  Worked well since I wasn’t pushing it.  
Brought the Putt Out” to practice green, the Boyz checked it out.  A couple of them thought it was a Fancy Door Stop😱
