Went out for a quick 9 after work started out OK 3 pars with both fairways hit 1 and 3 helping wind 2 is par 3 hit a nice knock down into a tough wind. then Par 3 4th 130 yards slightly into the wind a bit right to left Pulled the 52* GW for a low shot into the wind went right over the flag by about 12 feet spun right back into the hole for my First Hole in One. finished up a pretty solid round of 38 dubbed a few chips and left birdie on 9 a little short but pretty great day.

I've probably played my last round for 2015.  Weather is getting pretty chilly, the front nine at my home course is dug up for repair and I'm pretty busy and out of town for most of the next 2 weeks...

 

That said, I've gotten in a little range time this past week and despite (or because of) the tendonitis developing in my hands this summer, I'm ending the season with a better swing than I started with.  My hands are MUCH lower at address and my grip less tight, which gives me a more sweeping swing, and now that I'm getting used to it I'm longer, higher and more consistent than I was at the beginning of the season.

 

I was playing at a 14 handicap at the beginning of the season at my home course and bogey + away, but what surprised me the past month is, after having to lay off for awhile, my ballstriking is better now than it's ever been.  (Now if I can just keep that feel over the winter...)  I replaced my indoor hitting mat with a Real Feel mat, which is much easier on my hands, so I'm optimistic I'll be able to continue to practice productively over the winter.  I just need to avoid "marathon" ball hitting sessions and focus on my weight shift and tempo.

 

I've had to stop "aiming my putts" by running my index finger down the back of my putter grip but I'm finally getting used to it, so that's probably what I'll practice the most over the off season.

 

It looks like my next rounds will be played in Orlando during the PGA Merchandising Show when I get my mid-winter break.

I used to have my index finger down the back of the putter grip, and I think that led to inconsistent speed on my putts.  A few years ago I switched to running my index finger down the front of the grip and my trail hand grips the putter grip and index finger.  It helps to keep me from flipping, keeps the back of my lead hand facing the target line, and promotes my SBST pendulum swing.  But that's just me.

 

Sorry we didn't hook up this year and will miss everyone at the PGA Show.  Let's see what next year brings.  :)

Isn't where your index finger is located kind of like "do you inhale or exhale on your backswing?"  No disrespect intended, just more of a don't start me thinking of that--I've already got three hundred and forty six thoughts going through my head as I address that four foot putt.

On a more positive note, I do feel for you guys talking about closing down the golf season, but right now it has been real tough for us in the last three weeks to get quality tee times because of the demand and great weather.  We are teeing off at 12:15 tomorrow.  Our preferred time is 8:25.  Too many groups and outings right now.  But, 80 degrees, mild winds, green grass, sun, sun and sun, guess things aren't so bad.

Spectacular fall day in Florida. Dry, 85, very breezy though. One stupid swing led to an 80 but overall I was happy. That swing led to a triple from 130 in the middle of the fairway. :(. Playing with Getagrip Friday. I'm really looking forward to that.

Wish I could join ya......maybe next month.

I envy you guys.  At 69, my brain has only room for two thoughts at a time:

 

1. closest food / drink concession.

2. nearest bathroom.

Skip the drink and you can eliminate number 2, then you only have one thought, but if you're going to skip it, you can eliminate it, so really you don't have any thoughts, and then you can concentrate on your golf game.

Great practice round from the Blue Tees at Ocala GC. 46/40 with 13/14 fairways hit, 6 GIRs and 34 putts. The Paderson shaft in my driver was smokin' today. One Birdie on Par 5 from 8 feet. Then lipped out a 30 footer for Birdie on next hole, 150 yard Par 3. Back side was awesome play, very focused and chips were spot on.

 

Started out with double, bogey, double, bogey before I turned it around. W/h/b an 84 but lost my concentration on #17 6 foot par putt, turned it into a double bogey...

 

The course just reopened 2 weeks ago after replacing all the greens and bunkers. Now using tiff dwarf on the greens.....very smooth today......weather was Sunny in mid 80's...

 

Hoping for a fun couple days here in Ocala.

Had a great time with Getagrip today at Bayou.  The course is in good shape, my game not so much.  I shot an 82 and I haven't a clue how.  I had a topped fairway wood, a number of chunked irons, drives in the right and left rough including under trees (not at all normal for me.)  I really didn't even putt all that well although I had solid speed on my long putts (often for par.)  What I did do well was limit the damage, only one double which is amazing when you consider where I was.  Also I hit several great chips/pitches. 

 

Beautiful day, like most of your summers mid 80's, dry, breezy, round took 3:45.  You guys are welcome to come on down.  We have a spare room.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Played my first serious round back since my weeks sojourn in hospital.  Managed to shoot 81 (43, 38) which was bang on my current H/C index.  It included a 70 yard pitch that took one bounce and got lost in the darkness at the bottom of the cup for birdie and saved my partner and I a buck in the side bets.  We were getting annihilated by a pair of 20 something handicappers and had leaked so much oil there was none left to leak.  It was a great day, with much laughter and mutual trash talking as well as respect when good shots were made.  Still only running at about 90% but glad to be out there on the fairways! :)

What to do....what to do.....I am out of town in Ocala and my tee time isn't until 1:40 today. Sitting in my hotel room, cup a joe in hand, Golf Channel on the tube and iPad in my lap.

 

Anxious to play today, had a great practice round yesterday. The tournament is a seniors invitational named for Doug Oswald, former Florida Gator and retired mayor of Ocala. Proceeds go to Ocala youth sports.

 

I have been struggling with my driver for the past month, trying to see if the Paderson Kinetix shaft is for me. All of a sudden, my drives were all in the fairway, not long but longer than before, giving me opportunity to score. I switched back to my Bio Cell irons as they are a bit longer than the Mizunos.....good choice, hit them well yesterday. Fairway woods and hybrids were also hitting solid...gaming the new Titleist DT Trusoft this weekend.....so far I like the feel and distance. Rolling smooth off the putter too...hoping for a decent round today.

Had the best round of my life this morning shooting an 84 (42,42) at Sable Creek using the Snell MTB. Can a ball actually inspire confidence? I think it can! Took some pics for my review and I have to say, I do like it when the ball stops within inches of where it hit on the green.

 

I hit some bad shots but was able to recover from them. Putting was woeful with 36, but the greens are recovering from being punched and they were bumpy, but still fairly fast.

 

Played the last 6 holes at 1 over.

Struggled with the putter again, 4---3 putts, a missed 3 footer for birdie, shot 83, I had 2 bad tee shots, one was a double and I managed bogey from the abyss on 14, tee shot in the woods, had a swing, hit fade out of the woods, back into the woods about 100 yards up, take unplayable, I've got 125 in, knock shot 4 to 10 feet and actually made a putt, it was straight down the hill, and there was no way to come up short. Again I played better than the score, I've got to figure out this putting thing, some holes I think I've got it, and others I couldn't hit a basketball hoop from 10 feet, really struggling.

Played the back nine first ....The first round started off today with a Birdie, then par......ending the back nine with a 41......Then, we went to #1 and 8 missed a flop shot over the bunker and then sculler the bunker shot followed by a 4 putt....yep, you got it right......virtual vomit after the turn. Struggled to regain my posture, only to follow up on the 16th hole(actual #7 par 5) where I toed my 2nd shot into the grassy upside of a fairway bunker, 220 yards out. I then missed the next shot with the ball going straight up and landing next to me in the bunker.....this ended in a triple....ugh! I ended the round 41/50=91 finding myself 3 strokes back in my flight for tomorrow.

 

I was 10/13 fairways, 3 GIR and 30 putts.

 

Maybe I can put two sides together tomorrow. This is a stroke play tournament with no handicaps. If we netted handicaps I would be in better shape. But they don't. There is always talk about guys who fudge their Hcap to play in the lower flights.

 

I really don't care....I just absolutely love playing this course.

I completely understand about the putting thing. I'm having the same problem... have been for the last 6 weeks. It's frustrating, because you know the score would be so much better if you could just get the ball in the hole on short putts!
