How'd you play?

It was difficult to dial back my tempo into a hit and wait for both rounds of the tournament. We we behind the Flat Bellies groups and we played to a 5 1/2 hour round both days. I know this destroyed some folks that routinely play fast. I know I lost concentration at times then when it was finally my turn to hit, I screwed up. Why is it that when the Club Championship comes around, pace of play goes out the window and play grinds to a halt? Does this happen to other Club Championships? BTW, since we host a number of winter residents, our Championship has always been in the winter.

Yes it does. It happens at every club that I've ever been a member at.

 

I finally played yesterday. after nearly a month off. I shot 83 with quad and a triple. I'm actually quite happy though as I found something and played great golf from 6-17. The something was called the proper tempo. I don't recall the last time that it seemed so effortless to hit golf shots. I've been chasing that for two years quite frankly. I was 3 over in that stretch. That would put me on pace to shoot in the mid to high 70's. That equates to a low handicap on a course tgats 72.7/134.

 

On the down side I was an absolute train wreck in the traps. I need to get to the short game area after church tomorrow. :)

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 Indian Peaks today, fun track with incredible views of the Rockies. Ugly double from the middle of the fairway on #1. Worked it back to even through #17 and finished level. 12/14 fairways, 15/18 greens. Left half a dozen birds out there but pleasantly surprised how well the suspect shoulder feels after a full loop.

Today I was able to get out and walk 9. It felt SO good! I haven't played in almost two months due to the job change and training. I hit the ball well, and I was burning the lips of the cups with my new Edel! I just gotta get my speed down with it. It was about 71* and overcast with a very slight breeze. I had the whole front 9 to myself and really enjoyed walking and listening to some 80's R&B!!!! Great day.

I got to play early this morning - been awhile since we finished 18 before lunch! Cooler to start, but good for February.

 

Not sure why, but my tempo was off - basically rushed on most of my round. I caught myself and played well for a bit, then fell back to the crap... several times... salvaged an 87, but with 3 balls in the water and only 4 GIR!

 

Tomorrow, I will hopefully regain my focus...

Hit the ball ok today, didnt putt too well, managed an 85, but it could have been much worse. Playing Pinehurst#2 tomorrow, should be fun no matter how I play.

I played the first round of the season yesterday. The course was so crowded that it was a 10 minute wait on every hole.

 

I shot +4 on the front. The back started out Okay with 2 pars and a bogey, then........... the wind picked up and the temp dropped enough that I was cold. That, and Just getting tired from all the waiting, my attitude went south and I ended up + 15 on the back. It was a 5.5 hour round..... ridiculous!

Played early with the first morning dew on the greens that I've seen in awhile.

 

39/42:81 - focus was on tempo, which was better, but I lost it a few times.

I just want to say I hate my short game.  Shot 35/39=74 but had a double after chunking 2 chip shots on a hole.  I practice and seem to do fine on the practice greens,  but when I have to execute on the course i end up with chunked shots.  So frustrating!!!!!

I resemble those shots!  Still a very nice score.

Thanks.  It really was a good day.  I only missed one fairway and that was by about 2 feet.  I hit 11 greens and had 28 putts with only 11 on the front side.  I did hit one OB on the front.  Everything worse than par was directly the result of a bad chip/pitch shot.    i need to start going to the course and work on my short game or maybe even take another lesson.  I think i have tweaked with the swing so much that I am just making everything worse.

I firmly believe that we all need to have a coaches point of view periodically.  They can see things for what they are, while we think we are doing it perfectly.  haha

36 holes today! Started in the rain, then it cleared off and turned out to be a nice day.

 

I got my tempo back under control, and shot an even 80 both rounds.

 

Highlight of the day was the first round on #8 (our par 3 signature hole). It runs along side a lake - anything short, left, or long is in the water. Right is on a hillside. It measured 127 to the pin today, with a 2 club wind straight in our face. Hit it to 4 inches.

 

2nd time around, the wind had died down, and sad but true, I was a little upset with my shot leaving a 6 foot birdie putt. ;)

Is it safe to say the turf is a little sloppy in your neck of the woods this time of year? It definitely is at my course. I used to exclusively play a steep, edge down, high spin short game. And when that was my only system I would have a lot of trouble with mushy turf. I have since learned to use the bounce more and get kinda shallow and splashy with a mushy lie for example.

On the mental side, unless there is danger lurking long, I try to commit to a target 3 feet beyond the hole any time the lie is less than ideal. You're much more likely to accelerate through impact and make quality contact. If it comes out a little dead due to the suspect lie, you still end up close to the hole.

Finally, you already said it, practice exclusively non-preferred lies and you will be amazed how fast your short game improves. Falling in love with my short game practice (no $$$ for green fees) over one Summer, took me from putt 'em out 75 to 70 and kept it there for 5 years with minimal maintenance.
