Went out for a quick nine yesterday afternoon to work on a few things in my swing... Wasn't driving particularly well, and hitting my irons about a half club short... but managed to save pars getting up and down on 1 and 2;  2 putt pars on 3, 4, 5 and 6; another up and down on 7; bringing me to the Par 5 8th at even.  Reasonable drive in the middle of the fairway, drop kicked the 3W a bit, but straight leaving me right at 150 - but plays up hill to an elevated green.  Fanned my 7 iron to the right fringe, and hit a decent chip to about 4 feet past.  Lipped the comebacker for par, settled for bogey.  Walked to the tough dogleg left 9 tee thinking, I need a birdie to get that shot back.. and put a drive in the middle of the fairway with about 185 left... approach ended about 25 yards short of the green, and hit a low spinning 58* that hop/check/trickled into the cup for bird.  Even par 36.  4 for 5 on up & downs including the birdie on 9.  Plus met this golf fan on #6...

Beautiful sunny, cool day today... only 60º at tee time warming up to 84º.  Yesterday I struggled a little off the tee; not sure why, but today was solid.  Loving my Macgregor irons; I'm hitting them further after my Monte clinic and yardages are off!!

Two birdies and two bogeys on the front nine for even par 37.  I started the back nine with three straight bogeys, but I birdied the same risk/reward par 4 #14 after driving the green again... this time into a slight breeze.  I usually only try it if I have a tailwind, but I had a really good drive on #13... so why not!?!  Made another birdie on the par 4 #16 with a 20-foot right-to-left putt.  Missed my par putt on my nemesis hole #18, shot +2 on the back nine for another 37 and a very nice round of 74.

Shot one under my age... again!!  😃

Final day of our Ryder Cup matches and it was 12 singles matches for 12 points on the line.  Going into the singles, team Purple is ahead by 5 points.  I was in the first group.  The matches were paired with golfers of similar abilities and scores were gross with no strokes given.  After pushing the first hole, I promptly lost the next 3 holes then lost another hole on #8 to be 4 down with 10 to play.  I parred #9 to finally win a hole and I'm 3 down at the turn.  I knuckled down and fought my way back and at the end of the 16th hole we were all square.  We push the next hole and tee off on 18.  My opponent hits a monster drive, easily 50 yards ahead of me in the fairway (par 5).  I hit my next shot and it drifts down into a hollow in the rough about 114 yards from the elevated green.  My opponent finds the fairway inside of 100 yards.  I hit my shot pin high, but I pushed it to the right enough to be just off the fringe in some light rough.  My opponent strikes his ball and it goes above the hole, leaving himself a downhill putt of 7 feet or so.  Taking no chances, I opt to put from off the green and it falls  about 4 feet below the pin.  My opponent misses his birdie putt and I concede his par putt.  I drain my putt to be all square and split the point.  So, I overcame a 4 shot deficit by hitting 10 straight pars shooting a 42 on the front and a 36 on the back!

Team Purple went on the win the trophy 27-21.  That's me in the back row 3rd from the left

Just curious where the typo was... I'm hoping the 39 should be a 36 🙂

I'm realizing when I try to strengthen my driver grip I tend to just roll my forearms to do so which does nothing more than open the face up

I was actually thinking about this yesterday - I have a pretty strong grip and have been hitting a lot of push/fades lately and was considering tweaking my grip but didn't want to do it on the course.

You could try ball position up 1/2” to start in you don’t want to mess with grip

For me it was the thought of strengthening the grip by rotating my lead wrist, not rotating the entire lead forearm/elbow. I was getting to the point where my lead elbow was pointing too much toward the target at address. Reigning that back in toward my hip and then using my wrist only keeps everything much more square back and through.

This makes sense given I remember watching a Bryson YouTube video where he talks about feeling the left elbow pointing at the target and when he does that he can't hit it left at all.

The caveat for me with a forward ball position is what happened to me on 2/4 drives yesterday - straight pull to the left. I need to get more comfortable with the ball further back in my arc because that's when it's baby draws for days. 👍
