Nice job Whiskey! That's your first time shooting even, awesome.

 

I had an interesting day today - 39 putts, I average 32, 11 greens, I average 10. Guess which part of my game was working and which part wasn't.

 

Shot a ridiculous 83 - I did figure out what was going on with the putter half way through the back nine - I was standing too far from the ball when I do that I struggle with pulling my putts and my speed. Hit it 4 feet past on one and missed it left coming back. Pushed a makable putt on two, knocked it 4 feet by on 3 (from 15 feet), made the putt though. It was a long, long day on the greens - hit 8 greens on the back and shot 39.

Yesterday--another high/low round 42/50 with the low score on the hard nine. Finished double, double, double, triple to absolutely ruin a good day. Felt like giving up the game for several hours after that--the old big left off the tee that I've been working so hard to eliminate rose up and bit me again and again. One under par on those same 4 holes last Friday, 9 over par yesterday.

 

Had a good lesson and range session today, however. See how it carries over to the course tomorrow.

Nonchalant putts count the same as chalant putts.

Didn't get to play but went to the course to try out my new odyssey sabertooth 32" putter w super stroke mid slim grip. Love it. Greens were wet but I can tell the feel and head weight are superior to my ping half moon which I will now be selling

Played home course yesterday (Valley at TPC) and had 39/42 with 32 putts. Have been keeping stats for a while on driving accuracy, # of putts, GIR, pars and birdies. The area where most improvement is needed for me is on the green. I had 32 putts with a few one putts outside 15 feet, a couple of 3 putts, and a couple of missed short ones. Other stats included 9/14 fairways(64%), 6 GIR's, 2 birdies, and 6 pars. I saw a chart somewhere that showed these average stats based on scoring over time based on score.

 

Score 71 75 79 81 85 89 91

GIR 12 10 8 7 5 3 2

% Fairways 81 71 61 56 46 36 31

Putts 29 30.3 31.7 32.3 33.7 35 35.7

Birdies 3.2 2.4 1.8 1.5 .8 .1 0

Pars 11.8 10.3 8.8 8.1 6.6 5.1 4.3

 

I would be interested in how you might stack up with these stats based on your game.

Shot a crowd pleasing 98 at Brookledge Golf Club, a public course owned by the city of Cuyahoga Falls.

 

I wasn't too terribly disappointed with that being the first time out this year.

 

I worked out something with my driver after about 12 holes and started hitting it better, my new hybrids I like, despite no having the opportunity to use them much, irons were good, especially from 100 and in, my putting on the other hand sucked big time. 40 putts with a 5 putt...who the f$%# 5 putts??? :blink:

 

The greens had to be running a 10 and this course like them fast, so they'll be 11.5 or so come mid season.

 

Time to work on the flat stick.

FINALLY saw some things fall into place yesterday! Been struggling quite a bit of late, posted an 87 in our first tournament of the year last week, then followed that up with an 88! As horrible as that seems (relatively, of course), it wasn't like things were a total wreck. Nothing was great, but nothing was terrible either. I'd hit some really good shots, then butcher them with a bad one, or finally hit fairway and green, then 3 jack! But I kept hitting enough good shots that I knew the swing was percolating somewhere in there!

 

Anyhow, yesterday was our first team Cup Match of the year, an away match on a tough private club I'd only played once before. I typically play handicap 4 ball and I was pretty leery about even being on the roster given how I'd been playing. I just kept telling myself the swing was in there trying to get out! At any rate, I played and it pretty much all came together yesterday! Other than a couple big misses with the driver I drove the ball beautifully, and the iron game was really, really good! I was even through 13 then took a couple doubles coming down the home stretch that I might or might not have ended up with had it not been for where the match was at. Sometimes in match play you just have to try something stupid!

 

Anyhow, carded a 77 and left an easy 3-4 strokes on the course. We ended up losing the match 1-down but it was a tight match, 4 lead changes through the round and no one was ever more than 1 up or down. It's just so great to finally feel it coming together after a slump that goes back to last fall!

34/40 for a +2. 74. 30putts

 

Left a few on the table too...

 

Props to the tips I got the other day. I played course management serious style, putted well, and starting to get my new 825 pros figured out on distance. Compressed the ball really well today, and 3-wood was gnarly.

 

Great fun!

Sounds like folks are moving into midseason form.

 

I had a good bounce back from last week's trainwreck - a 76 isn't going to win many prizes (alright it did win a skin) but it beats the hell out of 83. And it was a competitive 76. 31 putts this week was much more like it - two squirrely irons into hazzards weren't helpful - laying up on a par five into a lateral hazzard 30 yards left of my target? I'm still trying to figure out what happened there. At any rate the more I saw the ball go in the hole the better I got. I'm going to play again on Friday.

 

I went to the putting green every day last week even if it was only for 5 minutes. I'm going to repeat that this week.

Shot a +6, 77 today and hit exactly 1 shot like I wanted to(result was almost what I wanted). The greens at my home course today are performing like they NEVER have before. They're firm as it gets and slow. They're still a little long after being punched and allowed to grow in (almost complete coverage back at this point). I've never seen greens as firm as that that were as slow as they are. Regardless, the only shot I hit like I wanted to today was a 5 iron approach on a par 5 from 205. It was flat as it gets, over a lake that juts out right at the lay-up area if one lays up. I knew I had to nuke it, but I don't carry a 4 iron and the firm greens, knew the 21 degree hybrid was too much. So I stepped on the 5 iron. It hit the front of the green took a big hop right next to the pin... and ran 10 yards by. But, I hit the exact shot I had pictured and on a normal day, should've took the big hop and been right by the pin. 2 putted for bird though.

I had a really interesting round today. Actually, I played 36 holes so I guess it was 2 rounds, but after weeks of really striking the ball really well, I batted the ball around a bit today and hit the driver ok but did not hit the irons well. Could not seem to get the body to work in the right sequence. On the first 9 holes, I had trouble with the speed of the greens, I left 8 putts within an inch of the hole and was astonished when I totaled up what felt like 100 turned out to be 42. To miss 8 putts and not hit the ball well, and still make a 42 was great.

 

And here is the strangest part. I scored pretty darn good for someone who just did not have it together. Shot an 81 and 76. After the front 9, I got my putter under control and shot a 39. 37 and 39.

 

There have been many more days when I hit the ball great and did not score well so I am not sure that scoring and ball striking always go hand in hand.

Lucky, I've heard of that place and have wanted to play there for a while. How was the course?

Beautiful course. A little out of the way, but definitely worth the trip. Greens were still showing some effects of aerification, but overall conditions were very good.

I posted this over on another thread but thought it might be a better fit here:

 

Took the new irons out for a round Friday afternoon and shot a 93....I know that isn't great for most of you but for me that is a pretty good round! To top it all off I hit a 7-iron tee shot on a 150 yard par 3 (over water)that was inside a foot from the hole!! And yes I made the birdie putt!! What a great way to spend a Friday afternoon!!! Oh, did I mention this is only the 3rd round I have played with my new irons?

Today, I will do what others will not so that...

 

Tomorrow, I will do what others can not

38 putts. That's the only thing I remember about this weekend. Except the 4 putt from 15 feet. That was pretty memorable!

I had to go to Dallas this morning to take care of some business, I decided to stop at a town I lived in in 1997 and play at the course there. I played there several times that summer and if I did not count foot wedges and Mulligan's I may have gotten close to 100 on that course but probably never broke it. That was actually the year I rescued the old Sam Snead persimmon woods and Tony Penna blades out of solitary in my parents garage and began playing again after a 10 year absence.

 

This course is a whooping 5800 yards from the tips and I never played it from there. I looked at the first hole and decided that I could not reach the water on the first hole, a par 5, 501 yards. So I would play from the back. Birdied the first, third, fifth,and ninth hole and bogied the second hole for a 33 on the front 9. Then I birdied 14, 15 and 18 for a 33 on the back making this the best round of my life.

 

The greens were slow, the pin placements were friendly, and because the course is so short, I drove 2 greens, and was hitting 6 of my approach shots from less than 100 yards. There was water on the course but it was easy to avoid and unlike my current course with really fast greens with shaved slopes to the water this was not the case. On the first hole I hit a wedge to about 2 1/2 feet for a birdie and did not realize how slow the greens were. I got to the second hole and had a long uphill chip and it was so slow I left myself a really long par putt and left it short. After that I did not really come close to another bogey.

 

It was kind of funny to stand on the box and remember where I used to have all the trouble and be some 75 to 100 yards past that making my approach shot. It was also nice to point at the hole and hit the putt and know that even if you missed it it would only be 3 or 4 feet coming back. However, I only had like 22 putts so I did not have many comebackers,
