A tale of 2 nines....

Couldn't stop hooking the ball right after the second hole on a course where if you hook it right the ball is gone, into the woods, under the leaves... I was trying a "new" technique out and violated the number one rule in golf - the course is meant for playing and not trying...

Realized that on #10 and shot 10 shots better on the back then I did on the front.... TEN.

I think I've been watching too many youtube videos.... I unsubscribed to everything but course vlogs and realize I have enough tools in my toolbox now to 'dig it out of the dirt' and swing my swing....

Played my old stomping grounds today. Shot an sloppy 82, it easily could have been a 75, or a 95. But I missed some chances, and saved some bogeys. Was pretty soupy out there, lots of rain lately.

Shots of the day was a 9 iron from 152 to 6” out of the rough. That’s good news, it means I’m getting my distance back. And another 9 iron out of the rough from behind a tree to 3’, only about a 80 yard shot. Opened the face up to probably a 56°, played it like a bunker shot.

Good to get the “reps” in. Need more time to practice on course.

Pretty stiff for the first 7 holes. Helped my dad move a bunch of stuff yesterday and sleeping on a rock mattress takes a toll on me.

Did some head to head testing with the Snells... very, very interesting results, but you’ll have to wait for that.

No. Just watching a lot of Brooks Koepka highlights.

It’s like working up a sweat watching cops. So yeah, pretty much like working out.

My first 18 holes since late November! No shoulder pain only a bit sore.
A forgettable 90 but successful in some way. Driver was really good, irons horrible and putter wasn’t helpful.
Sure is good to play pain free golf

Got in 18 today at Silver Lake CC in Michigan. Based on course conditions not sure they're doing the greatest. Had the course basically to myself though, that was pretty awesome.

Anyways, first time I've played in two weeks, and felt pretty good! Inconsistent from the tee, but my approach and chipping was best it's been in a while, putting was solid enough not to mess anything up. Ended up going 43/44, tied for best score of the year. Avoided any triples, which is huge for me. Also put 3/4 par 3's on the green. I did have to navigate this shot at one point which had me feeling like I was out at Pebble with the big boys😂:

IMG_20190617_193249606.thumb.jpg.7c2d12bcff070909880f0099fd477c20.jpg

Felt great to get out! This Michigan "summer" has been so wet, pretty much have to play any time the weather is decent enough to get any golf in. Hoping to keep momentum going!

Started playing again after taking a lengthy for me break. Played 1 round in the last couple of weeks until a couple night ago. 

2 weeks ago I hit all but one fairway and stillshot 87. My game has been real good at times, but so has a steady diet of penalties, doubles, triples and even a quad or 2.

Ive played 9 each of the last 3 nigts and shot 37,41, and 38. One double in 27 holes and 3 birdies. One of a putt and 2 chip ins. 

A few suttle changes plus FINALLY pain free after carpal tunel surgery has helped find a bit of a game.See ifit holds and drops a stroe or two more as I have tournies coming up.

Focused on ball placement in my stance off the tee, holding clubs a bit farther down, and tempo have been the subtle keys. Hopingto be back in single digits next update then backin the 6/7 range mud July.

Hadn't been out in 2 weeks about an 84. No feel for short game, as I was sick so no practice either. Working on new swing thoughts 1 birdie, 1 penalty that led to double. Also I'm sticking to the middle tees until I break 80 then moving back. If I can't break 80 from tees between 6000-6300 yards why am I playing the tips???

I feel ya!

I was there for probably the last 12-24 months, took 3 long game tweaking lessons with the pro and 1 wedge lesson and things feel 'right' again.

At your h/cap index it's normally a small tweak to nudge you back into the groove.

I am in the same place as you. Swing will work its way out and you will be back to normal scoring. I am only a couple of rounds into a bad play streak but I hit enough decent shots to know it will get better. Got the week off from my golf league so I am going to head out for a long range session sometime this week.

- 42 (+6)

- 2/7 FIR

- 3/9 GIR

- 16 Putts

- Average First Putt Distance: 18.1 Feet

Adding the first putt distance because I won't start to score any better until my short game improves. 

Very happy overall with how I played this morning. Driver was much better than Sunday, still a work in progress. Irons were not great, but got better toward the end of the round. Chipping was good as I've changed my strategy some there and am working in my pitching wedge more than my 54 degree. 

The putting numbers look good, but they could be a lot better. I left a lot of putts short. Some short enough to have 5-7 footers yet. Not good enough. 

All in all, still the second best front nine I've had this year. Missed a couple of putts by inches again so another sub-40 round has to be around the corner sometime!

Is the average first putt distance for missed greens or all? If for all, then you are probably not painting the right picture. Need to understand that metric from various distances to truly understand the weakness. Chips/pitches from around the green will be closer than 30+ yards. This is the strength of the strokes gained model and the various shot tracking apps. You can do it manually but have to track lots of distances and clubs used.

That said keep up the good work, it is important to understand weaknesses to be able to get better.

Does anyone have any tips on why I am hooking all of my irons lately? I don't know if i am in my own head or if it is my grip or any other causes. I managed to pull out a 41 yesterday on nine holes with only 1 par. 2 birdies but other than that par 3 scoring was horrendous with double bogeys on both. I was striking the ball well just overdrawing waaaaayyyyyy off my intended line.
