Today was a good day.  First hole in one ever.  50° Cobra King wedge from 120 yards.  Hit just past the hole and spun back in. Shot 73 to tie my lowest round ever. Won my match 8 and 6

Un-bloody-conscious! I still can't believe it but I shot a 79! 57% FIR 33% GIR 30 putts.  

I got a hole in one on the first hole today. Makes for a really enjoyable round. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

Early nine holes this morning... perhaps a little too early as I forgot my ShotScope at home. Whoops.

- 44 (+8)
- 2/7 FIR
- 3/9 GIR
- 19 Putts (2 3-putts, 6 2-putts, 1 1-putt)
- 1:30 Round Time

Driver - Average, Irons - Poor, Approach - Good, Putting - Poor

Couldn't buy a putt this morning. I missed five putts inside of seven feet, and they weren't even close. Frustrating. Didn't strike my irons well (very thin today), but I was getting around the course well enough to shoot better than 44, the putting just killed me. Oh well, tomorrow is a new round!

Got a chance to try out the new driving iron and it feels very nice. Good results on the hole I purchased it for. 

Took a video on No. 5 today, which was not a pretty bogey. Leaked my drive out behind a tree on the right side, chipped out, chipped up for a legitimate par chance from less than 10 feet and just pushed the putt hard right. It's funny to watch myself on video because by this point I was pretty fed up with my putting, having missed a short putt on No. 2 and having three-putted from 12 feet after hitting the green in regulation on No. 3.

 

The sound of that driver 😍

Same as me, barely survive. It looks like more of the same tomorrow.
I can’t complain about the lawn getting water for a while.

76

6/14 Fir

11/18 Gir

32 Putts

Didn’t hit it bad but didn’t get what I should of out of the round. Started great, first hole nice 3/4 PW from 121 out of light rough right over the top of the flag to 7 feet, draino. Made mental mistakes on back to back holes on 6 & 7 costing myself at least 2 strokes. Don’t make a mistake after a mistake, it’s not that hard. Buckled down after and proceeded to hit the next 7 out of 8 greens. Only one I missed was par 5 I was in green side bunker in two and left bunker shot just short of green, easy par though. Hit a lot of good putts but couldn’t get anything to fall. Only birdie during that stretch was on 13 when I knocked 56* to 6”. So just cruising along hitting it well and to the 16th tee. 160 yd par 3 with a pond on the left. I haven’t missed an iron since the 4th hole and I hit a huge WTF shot. No idea where the swing came from. 20 yards short and 30 yards left of the flag. Luckily I hit it so bad it missed the water. All you can do is shake your head. Crazy game.

Played a par 3 course yesterday. Nothing great aside from only 14 putts. I was good with that.

- 42/43 = 85 (+13)
- 5/15 FIR
- 6/18 GIR (1 birdie)
- 35 Putts 🤮 (2 3-putts, 13 2-putts, 3 1-putts)
- 2:30 Round Time

Driver - Good, Irons - Average, Short Game - Average, Putting - Poor

Considering the front nine could only be classified as a gigantic dumpster fire, I'm ecstatic with the score. At some point around No. 7 tee, I cussed myself out a little and finally just willed myself to put better swings on the ball. Had nice drives on No. 7 (hardest hole on the course, which I parred), No. 9 (birdie, missed an eagle from the fairway by inches), No. 10, and then just absolutely nailed three straight on 14-16, including hitting the green on No. 15 which is a 274-yard par 4 that was playing uphill into the wind today. 

Still cannot buy a putt and the combination of poor putting and having tree trouble on nine (!) holes really made it hard to have any chance of scoring well today. I'm getting very good at hitting low stingers from out under the trees, but in almost every case that means I need to play a perfect hole from then on to have a chance at par, and my short game is just not currently up to that challenge.

Since getting to the driving range on May 22 following my lesson earlier in May, I've shot 18-holes scores of 85, 83, 84, 86, 84 and 85. Consistent, but I'll need to see some improvement from my putting if I hope to do anything other than shoot mid-80s.

2:30 is flying around the course!  We’re you alone out there?  

As much as I hate them, you only had 2 3 putts.  Did you feel like you were missing some short ones leading to two putts?  I feel live I’ve been a two putt machine so far this year, but I’ve missed 4 or 5 shorter ones that I thought we’re makable.

I'm almost always first off so I can set my own pace. 2:30 is moving pretty well for me, I often am about 2:45 when I walk. Aided today by my driver on the back being cooperative. Last week, I did 18 in 2:10, but I was jogging in between shots (had to squeeze in the round before work).

The putting frustrations are a combo of a lot of things right now. I'm just flat out missing reads, which is leaving me longer second putts than I should have. And in the past few rounds nothing in the 4-8 foot range will drop at all.

I'm working on not leaving putts short (my major tendency) but the results have been less than stellar.

The first three-putt was frustrating because that was after driving the green, leaving about 30' for an eagle. Left the putt 5' short, then pushed the second putt just right.

The second one was the result of poor course management on No. 18, which left me a long downhill breaker that I had to navigate.

My chipping/pitching wasn't horrendous today, just getting frustrated because the rest of my game is going well enough to score better at the moment.

Well if you got the long game cooperating you should have the rust off the short game in no time. That will leave you with shorter putts too. All in time to get our Cobra gear and need to readjust again haha.

The wedges should be similar enough to what I have, but I’m moving quite a bit in loft from the AP2s. I’m hopeful that I can learn the new yardages quickly. Going to get some simulator-range time once we get that stuff in to get an idea of distance on them then bring a sheet around with that until I have enough data in Arccos to validate.

40/42 and played the last 4 holes of the day at even par. It was a day that the T200's showed up thankfully. 1 fairway hit and 1 putt over 6 foot made for a day of scrambling. The wind was blowing a consistent 15-20 with some big gusts made for a tricky day off the tee.

I'm not sure I like the Nemesys shaft as it really changed the feel of the head even with adjusting the swing weight back to the same. After having a mostly one way miss to the left, my 2-way miss showed up today.

The irons and wedges were on point today and really saved my round.

Thanks! ShotScope tells me the actual distance was less, but it is only the second time I've ever driven this hole.

Nice to have the driver going toward the end. Hopefully can keep it up!
