How'd you play?

A week and half ago, had a round where I had 1 quality drive and innumerable horrible drives, with a lot of tops with the ball hitting down on the tee and skidding 50 or so yds. Had a lesson. Today, 12 quality drives, only one cost me a reasonable shot at a green. BUT|, only one quality iron. Couldn't get near the green. Go figure. Did sort of figure it out at the end, parred the last three holes in. Hate the inconsistency! Putted great today, couldn't hit a good putt to save my life last Friday. Arrrrgh!

It's a fickle game isn't it. Shot 77 Friday then followed it up with a 91 on Sunday.

Didn't play last weekend but went home and saw my family for the first time since Christmas. Surprised my dad for his 60th... and even took him to the Jets game. May try to play 3 times this weekend to keep up with my swing. We shall see.

Played yesterday and it was like a football game, a game of 2 halves. The outward nine was excellent, played like a demon, inward nine, played like a donkey. Enjoyed the game but it could have been a blinder, oh well.

Shot 89 at Babe Zaharias GC yesterday......only had 8/14 Fairways, 4 GIRs and 33 putts......with 2 Birdies.

 

I seemed to be "pulling" my drives, using the Paderson shaft.   When I concentrate on my setup, I can stripe it down the middle.  Guess I just need some concentration.

83, drove the ball well 12/14 fairways, only hit 7/18 greens, 2 birdies, 3 three putts, and I missed 5 of 6 putts from 4 feet. The score didn't show it but I feel like I played well today.

I played like a mutt this morning.

You don't want to hear about it. 

My fault for playing on Saturday.

I should leave the course to working people on the weekend and just play with the other geriatrics during the week.

36 holes today on foot. Really wanted to give the new Ping irons a whirl. Round 1 was a 77 with 7 gir and 9 fairways and round 2 was an 81 with 7 gir and 5 fairways. The I20's are really awesome. Pretty much what I was looking for. The S300 shafts are excellent and I get a nice high shot with a nice little draw. I need to work on alignment in order to hit more greens but other than that pretty solid. I played the first round with my Scor wedges and Snell ball and round 2 played with I20 gap and sand wedge and 60 Ping tour wedge. Really enjoyed the ping wedges.

Fell short on my quest to break 80 from the tips again yesterday. Went to 17 needing par, par went double, bogey. But given the wind direction I was always going to be in a world of hurt on those holes. I needed a little cushion to make it. 17 requires a 225 yard carry over crap or else you need to threa through a little 10 yard window. Into the wind the carry wasn't happening so I just barely missed the fairway in the left rough. I could only advance it 100 yards and was still in the rough. Our rough is brutal right now because of all the rain, thick, gnarly bermuda. I made a great pitch to get up and down for bogey on 18. 463 is a par 5 for me under any wind conditions. Into a gusty sea breeze even more so. My second drive into the rough led to 165 in on the third shot which I missed right.

 

I think I'm going to give up and try again when it dries out. I'm tired of shooting 81, 82.

First round at Hilton Head....Port Royal Barrony, shot 38/45=83. No birdies but a bunch of tapin pars. Front nine was great with 2 over, but then my lower back got stiff and went bogey, bogey, bogey, double, double before I could swing thru the tightness.

 

Drive was terrific and approach shots were okay. The star of the day was my Ping Ketsch.

Last week before the race, I couldn't get out to play a full round, Instead I played a quick 9 holes on friday and then hit the range for an hour on sunday. 

Problems from last week are still lingering. I just can't seem to get a consistent swing with my driver. Video on the range suggests that I've gotten sloppy with my hands in the back swing. The plan is to survive next weekend and then get back to the range to spend some quality time getting some discipline back into the hands in the backswing.

My last 2 rounds were Jekyll and Hyde: 40+48, followed by 38+51. My driver decided it is an Ultra Conservative : way right. I pretty much worked that out on the second round, hitting 9/14 fairways. But then my shanks came back and killed me on at least four holes. Right now, I am terrified they are staying.

So I just had the best round of my life on Saturday. Admittedly, it was still a 95, and not my best SCORING round ever, but it was the first time where I could see my game falling into place. My driver and three wood were both mostly on point. I hit about 50% of fairways, and even the ones I missed it wasn't by much.

 

I started super slow, and struggled all day with any iron lower than a 9. Either I'm leaving the face wide open, or I'm closing it too fast. I think it's mostly a tempo issue. Work in progress!

 

Note, this was on a 140 slope course playing from the tips because everyone else was and I figured, why not? I suspect if i'd played a tee box or two shorter I would have shot under 90 for the first time. Lesson learned.

Not today, 47/45=92 on a 5100 yard course.....

 

Did not sleep well last night, on pain meds, hard to get a putt to drop......shaky hands.

 

Had several Boomers with my driver.

 

Will prob take day off tomorrow then back at it We'd.

 

Weather has been wonderful. Yesterday was 0% chance of rain.....have not seen that in Florida this year, right Rev?

I'd think that it was the end of the world if I saw a forecast with zero percent rain.  I actually was getting 3 or 4 feet of run out on my drives yesterday so it's starting to dry out.

Foz, this is the key to playing well while taking oxy or other opiates:  swallow them with either screwdrivers or bloody Marys. Then clear your head with a strong cup of coffee. Skip the cream and sugar in favor of Sambuca.

 

That will help you play relaxed. A bonus is that even if you play badly, you won't care a whole lot. Just be careful driving the cart.

 

No need to thank me. I'm happy to share my personal experience.
