After six years of playing, I got my first hole in one yesterday! Pretty crazy feeling to see the ball drop from the tee box. It was a slight downhill par 3 from 150 yards, got it done with a 9 iron!

I know the feeling.  I heavily rely on my hybrid as well; some days it works, some days it doesn't.

Oh yeah, same here. So .. since I, uhhh, have the opportunity 😆 to punch out often enough I've been using all different clubs other than the hybrid; eg. 3W, 7i, LW. Dare say it's helping...

What's helping??  Punch outs or hitting your 3W, 7i, and LW better?   🤣

Played a Par 3 yesterday; a fun (= challenging), tight (= trees intruding onto one or both sides of most holes) course with holes from 99 - 158 (those are both uphill shots). Most shots are PW, 9i or 8i for me and hit most of those pretty well, but still managed to miss most of the greens. Short game was also pretty good, but ... just missed getting up and down each time... The chip on would be pretty close to what I'd wanted but either run out a bit less or a bit more than desired, so I didn't leave myself any short, easy putts; followed by a string of mis-reads .. mostly under-reading break .. that had the first putts sliding by on the low side...

Had one bad pull left (8i) that went into a drainage gully that runs downhill to the left and behind the green; followed by a good low punch-out (LW) from a tough spot that stuck on the front of the green with the pin in back, followed by a putt that held its line to the pin but was still running too fast so left me with like a 10 footer coming back... Which is when I reached down to line up my ball and discovered that I'd punched out the wrong ball!! D'oh... 2-stroke penalty. And, yes - I missed the comeback putt with that Top Flite...

... And thought I would add I usually post about my good rounds, especially with the T1000-S irons I am reviewing. But rest assured we all have bad rounds. Leading up to my 2 day break, my back was tight and I played poorly for a week. Last 2 rounds I didn't even keep score but if I did, I would have shot in the upper 70's or even crept into the 80's. Just sayin...

Thank you!

It’s good to know the super-good players still have issues now and then. I had a pulled something in my back yesterday and shot an 82. It wasn’t a completely crappy day, but I swear that it was affecting my swing on some shots. It got so bad that I had to get up after 15 minutes in bed last night, and take some serious medication. The event was a “stag day” and the guys I play with like to drink a lot of beer, which led to me drinking a few, which probably helped with the back pain, but didn’t really help with the game haha. I usually don’t drink at all when playing...

League night tonight, we played the back which is definitely the harder 9 for me.

43 (+8), 3/6 FIR, 3/9 GIR, 17 putts

Really felt like I struck the ball well! 43's the best I've done on this 9 before. It's pretty short, but keeping your first ball in the fairway is essential with very complex green structures making your approach the most important for scoring low. My short game was really tidy, except for one pitch I just played silly and flew the green.

I've also gotten the new Tour Edge Hybrid just the other day, so this was my first round with it. I won't give too much away before we start the official thread, but this sucker is crisp. Holes 6 & 7 are both really narrow with OB right and water left, and my confidence standing on both tees is typically pretty abysmal. But with the EXS Pro I was waay more comfortable, and stayed out of trouble on both holes today. Excited to keep putting some swings on it, and hoping it keeps up with the initial impression!

3/7 FiR

3/9 GiR

18 putts (2 3-jacks) 😑

After 3 straight pars out of the gate, playing in a 2-club wind with a random rain on the 3rd hole, I thought this was going to be a decent round. Burned a couple edges and had one really bad 3-putt. The other 3-jack I'm blaming on pin placement and not upset about. 4th hole has a 2-tier green and the cup was literally put on the slope? Aimed 3 feet left of the hole and still missed on the low side, lame. Sailed both of the par 3's due to not being able to judge the wind properly, frustrating day overall. edit: also still striking the ball with my irons like horse manure. go figure the two times I pured it today were 9 irons that sailed the greens.

Finally put a round together! After getting some new clubs that just had a different feel to them, I tried adjusting my swing a bit because it seemed like I was getting out of position at the top. It started off as a pretty seamless change at first, but has caused me all sorts of trouble as of late. Well after spending some time on the range, figuring out how to make my "normal" swing work I decided to go for it today.

Started out a little rough - my tee shot on #1(a par 5) was a hooking dive bomber into the nearest fairway bunker. Chunked it from the sand, then hit a chunky 4-iron up near the green. Chipped on and barely missed to save par. Things got progressively better from there, but still a few hiccups along the way.

I played by myself and wound up playing through 4 foursomes. While trying to hurry through these groups, I hooked one drive, bladed two wedges, and swiped one putt left of the hole. So, potentially 4 shots that could have been much better. I also racked up 4 errors - shots where I either selected the wrong club, or attempted a high risk/low make shot (for me).

All said and done, I shot an 85 which is 6 shots better than I have ever played this particular course - 32 putts (one 3-putt), 57% FIR, and 28% GIR (if I get those two bladed wedges back, would've been 39%). Considering I haven't scored in the 80's since maybe January, I will absolutely take that!

Just finished up playing RTJ Oxmoor valley short course. Started the round off hitting it close with a tap in birdie. Then fell apart a little bit. Hit 9 greens and finished +18. Could have had 2 other birdies but had issues reading the greens. Chipping was also a struggle which has been decent. And it was blazing hot. Playing early tomorrow morning, hoping to turn it around on the Valley course.

 

Short courses are really fun but man can they be challenging!

Strange round, strokeplay off the back marks. Drove it ok, absolutely butchered my fairway woods. Irons were either really good or really poor. Putted poorly, with a few very soft 3 putts. Somehow managed to only be 3 worse than my daily handicap of 8, 82/74. Still trying to work out how my score wasn't worse.

First round today of the Governor’s Cup at my club which I said I wouldn’t play and got talked into. Had to give 5 pops in the Championship Flight and lost 4 of the 5 holes I had to give shots on. I squeaked our a one over 72 and won the match 2&1. The putter is starting to heat up at the right time now if I could just drive it better I would have a pretty good game right now.

Onto round 2 tomorrow and playing straight up for a change. Should be a fun day.

I'm playing in a couples Chapman format tournament next weekend in Grants Pass, OR and had our practice round today with my golfing partner.  3 hour round as it was just the two of us and it wasn't very crowded prior to our 8:45 tee time.  Anyway,  shot 38/39 for a 77 today.  Decent ball striking.  2 birdies, one par from a lateral drop from a hazard.  No doubles!  Felt good to play decent again after the struggles on the course lately.  Lesson paid off.  First time playing with this lady.  She's a 15 handicap, keeps her ball in play, albeit not very long.  Chapman format should bode well for us.  We'll see.

Played my home course Thursday in extreme heat, okay I live in Houston what do I expect? This is possibly the last round with a full bag of Titleist clubs as I direct my focus and devotion to #COBRACONNECT4 #MGSCOBRA2020.

On to the round...Front nine pretty much sucked! But I rebounded on the back nine for a reasonable round of 86.

image.png.371bc742f0f3273faf4f00e25567eed4.png

Obviously two highlights were #10 and #17. Arccos has me 8' from the pin on 17 but a picture is worth a thousand words.

3'2" greens were extremely firm with the 100 plus heat this time of year in H-town and this 9 iron bomb left no mark but landed about two feet short and danced to a stop right here.

Had fun in spite of sweating my ass off, LOL

Putting FINALLY coming back to form.

Played RTJ Oxmoor Valley, Valley Course, this morning. The dew was very heavy and they had just cut earlier in the week so lots of grass clippings. My usual golf buddies were out of town, so I was paired up with a three some. Very nice guys who didn't speak much English but they were great at laughing off bad shots and celebrating the good ones. I need to learn more from them. I had 9 FIRs  but only 5 GIRs. Short game was still an issue with multiple holes with multiple chips. I have to hit it close to score. Shot a 91. Didn't drive the ball very well either and I have learned it's really hard to score if I'm not driving it to the landing area. Time to hit the range and short game practice area this week!
