I started watching a foursome of guys my age (72-78) ...... this guy must have had a stroke as his left side was obviously paralyzed ....

Love that old guy!

At the short 9 hole near me, there's a .. no joke .. 96 y.o. who still plays, frequently, and decently, too and .. still .. no joke .. gets down on himself if he mis-hits one!!!

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 almost got beat last year by an 85 year old in an inter club. He apparently has set the amateur record for beating his age or some crap. I was 4 up after 9 and won the match on 18.

Other than adjusting the lie angle on my news clubs, I haven't played or practiced much in 5 weeks,  Shot an 86 from the tips at 6900 yards last night.  3 putted 3 or 4 times and took a 6 on a par 3 thanks to a pulled tee shot OB.  Had to hit driver last night which cost me 2 strokes on one hole, but otherwise please with my driver play.  It was the short that showed my lack of practice.

Played a fun and challenging 9 yesterday; had one of those up and down rounds -- ie. some really good shots plus some really baaaaad shots, with very little mediocre ones in-between. So a typical golf day, I guess!

3 pars, 3 bogeys, 3 doubles for an "even bogey" 🤪 round overall.

One big disappointment was a lot of my iron shots .. I've finally started hitting them nicely recently, but I just proved out that saying about your golf swing: "..you don't own it, you only rent it for a while.." 😂

Did have a few nice tee shots and short approaches; wedges were mostly good but the highlight was putting - which was really spot-on (that day!) .. most first putts were literally 1-3 inches from dropping; only left one short and nailed that second one (so no 3 putts that day).

Playing 18 tomorrow so will try (emphasized!) to just hit solid shots to safe targets.

Weird day. 4 birdies and some bogies, and a dang double. Some great Saves and sandies, and some chunked wedges . A very mixed bag, but a +2 , 74 final.

evoted the day to the new swing, which is the old new swing I devoted to before... until it quit working, but this time it’s different. I’m sticking with it!!! 🙄

until I try something else new... why can’t I just find a swing and stick with It???

Because.... Golf

You're fairly new here but let me explain something. There are way more rumors floating around in your golf bag than a high school dance. And they know exactly when to toe the line and when they don't have to. It really is a crazy phenomenon but it has been proving time and time again.  

I don’t know man, I’m pretty sure the only conversation happening in my bag is “okay, whose got the day off today?”

First time out with my new putter and there is still a lack of comfort and adjustments that are needed.  It was apparent on the first hole where I had 15 feet for birdie and 3 putted.  I still had 7 feet for par to give you an idea how bad the first putt was.  Part misread, part yip strong pull.  Also, I'm noticing more and more that I tend to misread putts on the high side.  I did settle in and hit many good putts through the round, but would  just continue to overread.  I did have 3 birdies, which is great for me during a round but should have been better than a 79 with how I was hitting it.  A lot of come back 5 footers that still aren't falling and it really came down to bad reads rather than bad putts.

Well the new GHIN exceptional round score rule will most likely go into effect here (would need to know his exact index at time and the differential of the 77 to tell you for sure), so that’ll bring down his handicap considerably. Then again, this is contingent upon the player either posting his scores or the clubs pro shop or golf committee enforcing that scores are being posted.

only way to audit sand bagging is to enforce scores get posted when rounds are played. Peer review is so easy now with the new system as is posting with the app, The only excuse is apathy/indifference or malicious intent to break rule.

 

of course every club also has guys who go the other direction. The guy who shoots 83 in any money game or club tournament worth a lick but always manages to post 75 when he’s playing in the afternoons with his kids.

Today was 14 pretty good holes followed by me exploding on 15-18 and tanking the round. I’m still walking away from the course happy today, 14 holes is making good progress for me. 
 

Got held up at the turn by a threesome that snuck onto the back without waiting for me to go (I was finishing the 9th as they teed off) which caused a huge delay for me but they let me through on 11. 
 

I wish I would have had some stopping power in my approach on 13 too. Ball just rolled right by the hole.

I can't stop playing golf swing and just play golf....

I've had 2 good rounds and 2 really crappy ones and the crappy ones were me (typically) over-analyzing every single thing - "why'd you hit that good shot? why'd the ball go in that direction? what happened with that putt?"  I've got to learn to get out of my own head and remember that the golf course is not for swing mechanics. 

 

... Graham McDowells said something like "When swinging well, golf is the easiest sport there is. When swinging poorly it is the most difficult endeavor on the planet". So GS Stroker I think it is the same for most of us and that includes Tour Pros. We all have our own demons and mine is a tight back that throws everything out of whack. Take away feels off and tough to recover from that. Instead of hitting fairways and greens and shooting par or under, I am scrambling to save a 75-78. To me a 78 feels like a 99 because my swing is not sequenced and I am battling myself all round long. Just happened my last 2 rounds. Tour guys shoot a 71 instead of a 65 and I am sure their 71 also feels like a 99 to them. 

... I have learned to just deal with whatever I have on the course that day. It doesn't make the round fun, but at least I don't get frustrated trying to get things to work properly. Otoh, the days when everything is in sync and it feels effortless, I also don't try and bottle the feeling or analyze what is working well and what isn't. You can do that on the range of course, but on the course you said it perfectly with just play golf, don't play golf swing. Sometimes easier said than done, but in the end you will be giving yourself more positive feedback and avoiding negative feedback. Hang in there!

That’s how it works. As soon as a club knows it’s done, it fights to stay in the bag. 🤣
