How'd you play?

Golf is crazy.

I’d been working with an instructor on my rotation also, before my back flared up. I finally got out today after almost 2 months and I had the exact opposite problem.

I was killing my driver, but I felt lost with the irons... just couldn’t get comfortable with it, and I have no idea why. I’m planning on seeing him in a few days, hopefully I can get it sorted out.

The way everything else was going today I should’ve broken 80 with even mediocre iron play, but I really never felt like I flushed one all day.

I hear ya....today, I was hitting everything pretty well.  Tomorrow will likely kill me!  LOL

The drills and the feels that my coach gave me are beginning to pay off.  Just subtle stuff that clicked.

Played Hayling Golf club on Hayling Island, Hampshire, England. Was the first proper links golf course I have played.

Wow! So scenic! And wow those pot bunkers look dangerous 😱 

Wife and I may be traveling to Ireland next Summer, and am hoping to try a round on a links style course.

Phew what a day. First time walking which was delightful. Managed to shoot an even 100 with 0 fairways hit and 0 GIR! ZERO! For both! I’m equal parts miserable with my play off the tee and proud of ability to scramble to keep it (semi) reasonable. By comparison I’ve had rounds a few weeks ago of 64% of fairways and 28% GIR. Confidence off the tee is absolutely non-existent right now. BUT, it was a gorgeous day out

I went to play at my club this morning (Pebble Creek 7 AM)only to find that the Hillsborough County Sheriff had a fund raising tourney and they had the entire club. So I called our sister club, Plantation Palms and they had an opening if I walked. I had my pushcart in the truck so I drove to PP and walked the back 9 then got a cart for the front nine. Walking 5he back nine is like walking 18 at my club.

I am playing with tennis elbow in my right arm so I have a small brace on my forearm. I shot a 44/44:88 today and am happy.
Still getting used to my new to me Evnroll ER2 and Hogan VKTR 3 Hybrid.

Early and little sloppy +5 Bacon Boyz 9. Driver was OK but irons going nowhere. Not sure what happened there.
Legs were dead as spent most of yesterday with yard work trimming shrubs and general upkeep. Kills my knees.
No breakfast with the Boyz, had a new Weber grill delivered and had to accompany SWMBO to the vet for the cat. Kitty is 17 and starting to show her age.

Today was a day that'll go down in my personal golf history. The last few rounds have been some of the worst I've ever played and had me completely feeling lost over the ball, I finally had a good round. 

We are in a calm before the rising storm at work. After getting off at 2:45 today, I rushed home, grabbed my clubs, and drove with my wife to play a nine hole round at Chatata Valley. 20210423_172544-01.jpeg.4d689b768d79a65d8393ced27157c217.jpeg

@Kenny B, I thought I'd get the steering wheel in this picture.

I started out with 3 bogeys, one of which was brought on by a duck hooked, out of bounds tee shot on the par 5 third. I recovered well hitting the second longest drive I've ever recorded on Arccos. Screenshot_20210423-201836-01.jpeg.b432d8cafe17de74bc5c5b2cc310bf97.jpeg

I ripped a three wood to the left of the green, coming so close to actually reaching the green in two swings of the club. 20210423_164904-01.jpeg.2b50393bfd563456d856bd87068a4064.jpeg

Chipped up to six feet leaving myself a bogey putt. 

My iron game left a lot to be desired, but I was able to make up for it with the best short game I've had in a long time. I just missed chipping two in and made my shot of the day hitting a 28 yard chip shot while standing in tree branches that left me 20 feet from the pin. 

Screenshot_20210423-203039-01.jpeg.ab54ea40bc4ca3a5bb1c4d6bd51b98e8.jpeg

I ended the day shooting a 46, hitting 5/7 fairways, zero greens, and 15 putts. 

Great work. Even more impressive than the big drive to me is that 3 wood to follow it up off the deck.

I've really got you to thank for that. After hearing you talk about working with J Chown I looked up some of his YouTube videos and realized my feet needed to be flaired at address. I've set up for years square and it's allowed more rotation. 

Plus, I'm working on getting the club outside my hands on the takeaway and not coming so over the top.

Started off with a pretty strong front 9 (38 on sanded greens that could have been better with normal greens) then made the turn.  Decent drive, then hit my 2nd shot OB right and walk away with a triple bogey.  Hit a 9 iron fat on the next hole (par 3) then  crap up on my wedge to the green -- double bogey.  I tried to get my head back into the "this shot" mentality but just couldn't get it together.  Carded an 85.

Went to demo days afterwards to see what improvements I might find over my driver.  Hit the Cobra RadSpeed XB with R Tensei Blue 60 shaft....10.5 head and adjusted it several times up to 12....Compared Trackman numbers of this combo with my existing Ping G400.  Cobra rep said to keep hitting the Ping.  Move over to Ping rep and hit the 425 with R flex shaft similar to the Alta that I have in my 400.  His Trackman was down, but I didn't care much for the results I was seeing.  Next stop was Callaway where I mated a 9 degree Epic Max (tweaked to 10 degree) head with a Hzrdus Smoke Mid 50g shaft.  Trackman numbers looked good with less spin and longer total distance than my Ping, but not $505 better (Demo day discounted price).  One last stop over at the XXIO rep and hit their driver.  I really liked that driver.  Loved the shot shape, the sound at impact, and the ease of hitting it --- but the numbers didn't make me say "this is the driver I need".   Talked a bit with my swing coach and he seconded my feeling that the results didn't really warrant replacing the Ping.  Although my spin numbers are higher than he'd like to see with my club, we both agreed that the Ping performed decently for me and any gains from a new driver wouldn't be that big to warrant it.  Bottom line....think I'll stick with the Ping I have.

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 should just retire now. emoji23.png

That's awesome! Congratulations on the ace.
