I missed it by three strokes two weeks ago (it would be two strokes away if I shot the same score later this week when I turn 74). Did I read it correctly that you shot 70 in matching or beating your age? The only time I have broken 70 were in two rounds on shorter courses (one was a par-69 18-hole course and I was only 42 years old at the time), and when I shot my 67 several years ago the course had four temporary tees and one temporary green, so it wouldn’t have counted anyway … and I think I was only 65 or 66 at the time. The only way that I have shot my age was when I shot 32 and 34 on two consecutive Monday night rounds in my 9-hole league. Let us know when you shoot 74. I will have another Drambuie! Ya, 70. Turned 70 last year. This on a course that is a par 71 where I have shot 69 but those scores were several years ago. I have been struggling with my irons. I have a hitting mat on my back patio and have been out everyday just smoothing out my swing. No ball, just kinda knowing what feels good. Finally started working. Shot 72 today after starting 3 over over the first 5 holes. When it gets a little warmer, going to move back a tee! I live in the Phoenix area and started play today at 45 degrees. Looking ahead on the 10 day and ten days from now the hi will be 91. No spring, just winter then summer here. Always play from longer tees in the summer. cksurfdude, JerryB, funkyjudge and 2 others 5 Quote Driver: Callaway Epic 9 degree, stiff FW: Callaway Epic 3,5,7 regular shaft (driver shaft in 3 wood, 3 wood shaft in 5 wood, 5 wood shaft in 7 wood) Hybrids: Callaway BB19 4,6,7 Irons: Callaway Steelhead 7,9,PW (gapping distances require both a 7 hybrid and 7 iron, choke on the 7 for 8 iron distance or hook the 9 iron) Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM6 50,54,58 Ball: Titleist Pro V1, 1X, Vice Pro Plus or anything I find that day and try out for the fun of it (I haven't bought balls with my own money in at least 10 years) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
