I can live with poor consequences if I committed and executed. Hurting yourself due to not committing to a shot is just dumb.

..been there, done that.... 😞

But yeah - the golf ball senses your hesitancy 😉 and thinks it can just fly off to wherever!

replacing the 70 with a "Par Buster"

Suggestion for another name to consider:
"No Par King"

Played 18 two days in a row on an impromptu road trip to the east end of Long Island. The back was more sore from the soft bed in the B&B than from too much bad swinging. First day I'd forgotten to load the course into my ShotScope and didn't bother tracking my score as it was windy and gusty and figured I'd be having a tough day anyway; a lot of this course is exposed to the wind and gusts especially part of the back 9.

Highlight was probably the 164 yd Par 3 - took out the new-to-me Ping G Crossover for the first time and .. I think with a wind-assist tho couldn't be sure .. landed it beyond the bunker front-right and the mound just behind it to get onto the middle of the green; an "easy" 2-putt par. Same hole next day? And with almost no wind at all? 3 to get on and a stoopit 3-putt on top of that..... Sheesh!

Second day front 9 I was doing ok - basically playing bogey golf on average - until on the short, slight dogleg right #9 I topped my tee shot followed by a weak second shot that rolled behind a tree followed by a failed attempt at a punchout with the ball nudged against a large root... to a triple 7. Back 9 I made a big mess of three of the holes though finished the last two holes with a par and almost a par, just lipped out the putt...

So Front 9 was +11 even with several wasted shots and two 3-putts, tho those were offset by two 1-putts; Back 9, tho... +17 with 2 penalties (two tee shots on the same hole sliced OB . ouch!) and three 3-putts (no 1-putts). Well, at least the course was quiet and without rushing, just going from hole to hole and a bathroom break in the middle, we finished in 3:18.

Driver was working, irons were working,  putter was working,  short game was NOT working.  Just some really bad shots that resulted in a few doubles.  Just going to keep practicing since there were a few good short game shots.

Yes, my second round of the season. Partly sunny and 54° wind at about 10 mph. Rained most of the week so only walking the course was an option. No problem, although we had to use the course pull carts. They weren't in very good shape. It was soggy, and we were plagued by disappearing balls. For me, driving was very ugly. I just only 2 fairways. The best drive I had was par 4 where I hit beautiful 3 wood dead center, just about 100yds out. That use to be my PW go to distance. My new irons, the ones fitted to me, well add 10-15yds to each previous club distance. Not thinking I used the PW, put it about 10yds over the green, 60°onto the"putting surface" and a one putt for par. That was great. But then back to the driver issues. I have to say, I really love those irons. I was doing a good job of dialing in distances. Since it was soooo wet, we decided to use the round as practice. I was just pumped to be able to get out and play.

Got to play a few times over the past week. Mostly 9 holes rounds. Starting to play better for stretches, but still struggling mightily especially around the greens. The last round was an awful iron round where I missed a ton of greens.

Played after church yesterday - shot 80 - very disappointing because I drove it great. Only missed two fairways and was in good shape on the proper side with both misses.

My iron play was abysmal - I really need a new set of irons or certainly different shafts in my current one. Lots of rights because I can’t get the face closed. On a course like we played yesterday that meant lots of short sided bunker shots.

2 rounds over the weekend for me both 79s. Should be scoring better but my head is a bit of a mess at the moment too many changes and thoughts to get a settled round. e.g. Saturday changed my putting setup went round with 30 putts but struggling with my approach 5/18 GIR. Sunday changed my setup on my approaches 12/18 GIR and went back to my old putting setup, 39 putts.

Played Saturday with a very loose swing. Was 3 over after 2. Was able to get it to 1 over after chip in on 16 but bogeyed 17 after hitting 168 yard 9 iron a mile over the green. With swing changes distance are getting tough to guess. Missed greens #11 and #12 from middle of FWY inside of 90 yards. Still working on wedges and struggling at times. 

74

8/18 GIR

9/14 FIR

27 Putts

Well, here’s the results from my Buddy Trip ....

I used my old Cobra F6 4 & 5 irons rather than the F8 3 & 5 Hybrids.....

Now, I am having severe pain issues with my fingers. Can’t seem to hold onto the club very well. I take Gabapentin daily for the pain, but now it is more severe. I also take hot Paraffin treatments for my hands. Hoping I can get better. My right hand seems to come off the club a bit on the downswing as I put pressure on the grip with my 3rd, 4th & 5th fingers. This causes the club to strike the ball on a different angle.

Really sorry to hear that, Foz.... 😞

Hope you can find or figure out something to give you some relief, so you can keep playing!

Played Saturday in 57º temp and winds 20-30mph with gusts to 40.  Shot 91...7 doubles! But I got one birdie!  Yikes!

Sunday was very nice, but still chilly.  Overnight low was 39º.  It was 47º at tee off.  Shot even par on the front nine; two birdies, two bogeys.  However, 3 doubles, 3 bogeys and a birdie on the back nine led to a round of 80.  Disappointing to say the least.  I wish I could keep a good round going!!

Oh yeah .... you're not the only one..!

Played a short 9 hole course that I've played a number of times the past few seasons. After an opening double - tee shot hooked left under a tree, punchout kinda ok but then a chunked chip still short of the green - 4 to get on, on a short Par 4....

Got back on track with a bogey (another tee shot hooked left under a tree!), par, par (on two of the harder holes!) but then ... but then...

After a tee shot that went left *again!* but got saved from OB by a tree branch, I made a big mistake .. instead of laying up I thought, 'I have a good lie and a clear shot - I can get it back there!' Well... You know what happened next. Lost Ball, drop, chunked chip, bladed chip... +4/Quad.

Got back on track, again, with a bogey on a tricky Par 4 that really could be a short Par 5; bogey on an uphill Par 3; par on a short, straight Par 4 (even after tee shot left but this time IN FRONT of the tree!).

But then .. but then... Closing short Par 3 across a pond in front of the tee box. Guess where the tee shot goes? And here's where I made another big mistake - instead of walking around to a drop zone, I re-tee'ed and proceeded to slam a line drive underneath an agave ... Lost Ball... Drop, fluff it into the Bunker, get out and on the green but miss the straightforward putt... +5/Snowman on a 115 yard Par 3.

So two round-wrecker holes in one 9-hole round, where I might have salvaged two bogeys ... Hopefully I've learned (and will retain!) two important lessons!!

What were those two lessons again??

I thought you were taking "mental" lessons.   LOL

Played a nice 40/38 in a cool drizzle today that was a nice little round in my Galway Bay gear. Been driving the ball nicely of late, can’t complain!

Went and and played 9. Not sure what is going on, but my normally spot on 5w has developed a pull. Very concerning as It is my go to tee club  many days. 

I was experimenting with a Super Stroke 3.0 grip.Major fail so I replaced it today a GP SNSR standard as wel as added 1.25 inches to my putter. Nice grip wth quality feedback.  Putted good today.
