You and me both. 😂😂

That 4 iron I was “planning” to be short on the right hand side of the fairway.

The 3 wood I’ve hit a bigger one, the 200+ 7 iron was the biggest surprise.  Middle flag, I was aiming for the front of the green.

oh to be young again....lol

Played an outstanding round of league tonight!

FIR: 3/6

GIR: 7/9

Putts: 18

Had one birdie, one bogey and one double - the really only "bad" shot of the day for me was on the double. Chunky tee shot left me in front of a tree, so I was going to just punch a 4 iron under some branches and get me a short pitch onto the green...I hit the trunk and bounced it in the water haha. But just a super super solid round otherwise. Arccos had me at a +5 HCP for my approach game, which is by far a best for me. Just feel really good standing over the ball the last few rounds! Can't complain about that!

Played in the Senior League Betterball Matchplay for the club yesterday.

Set the scene, my partner and I are 3 for 3 win wise but all the games have been close and we have had to play well to win with matches going down to 17 and 18.

This is the 1st season we have been using the WHS handicap system. I'm playing of 4.9 and partner 11.7, the maximum competitor handicap is 20.

Prior to WHS, anyone off 20 would be 75% of the difference in betterball which would be ((20-5)*75%) 12 strokes with me off scratch. new rules are that you use the Course Handicap so I get 5, but off a slope of 123 20 go up to 23 and it is now 90% difference. So I was giving 16 strokes to 2 guys who never missed a fairway and betterball net were the best part of 8 under. 

Started really well and was -3 gross thru 1st 5 but only 1 up. On the 4th, holed my birdie 3 and walked off the green while the other team were putting for their pars and announced we were one up, they nearly had a coronary. "But we're stroking" I pointed out this was only 1 of 2 holes they didn't stroke on. Next hole put my approach to 3 feet, old boy rolls in a 15 footer for par and turns round to say "you'll have that for a half".  I wasn't driving well at that time with me cutting the ball but not getting into much trouble, sorted things out on the 6th, setup for the cut and hit it up the left side behind trees, 7th big drive ran out of fairway behind trees. So went one down in quick succession. Played steady on the back nine, 2 over for the 5 holes Eventually we got beat 5 and 3, with net birdies on 4 off the 5 holes. Didn't even win their non stroking hole, par just not good enough!  

Enjoyed the course didn't much like the thumping.

Been a while since I've posted here but have been able to play a decent amount. Hitting about the 6 month mark of being able to play consistently and progress has slowed as the bigger jumps in score have ceased, which is to be expected. Shot a 93 which was an overall pretty solid round. Experimented with trying to aim for the widest miss, especially off the tee, no matter the club and turned out pretty well. Great example is this hole that is my nemesis. Short par-4 that's just a slow, steady dogleg left with trees all down the right that doesn't fit my shot shape at all. It's the 3rd easiest hole on the course but the one I play the least. Swallowed a ton of pride and hit a 7 iron off the tee into the middle of the fairway, then another 7 in, two putted for par.

Friday Bacon Boyz 😱. Have no idea what I shot for the 9, maybe 4 over.  It was one of those chirping, BB, laugh mornings.  It was a great time with some golf added.

Got a quick round in early this morning in between rounds of thunderstorms (damn I hate cart path only golf!)

The course was really wet after several days of rain so I wasn’t getting any roll out at all.. The only good news with that as you could really go at flags because the ball was sticking on all the greens. I’ve really been struggling with getting the club stuck behind me especially on shorter irons And hitting a lot of short, right fat shots. I’ve worked hitting some balls into the net in the garage the last several days really trying to extend my trail arm as far as I could straight back to keep from getting the club too far inside and creating more space for my downswing. It feels kind of awkward but the results seem to be there because I really didn’t have more than one or two shots that I felt stuck on today.

i’m continuing to hit my driver pretty good hitting on 11 out of 13 fairways and because I was able to really attack some of the flags with short irons, I ended up only having 30 putts for the round.

 

43 + 41 = 84

Bro, keep up those type of rounds and your handicap will be coming down in no time.  Also, do you start your take away with your arms or legs/hips?  If you try with the hips moving before the arms, that should help with not bringing the club too far inside.  But, I'm not a teacher and my handicap isn't much better, so maybe don't listen to me. 🤣

I appreciate it. That’s one of the things I’ve been really working on is trying to start my backswing by moving my hips and rotating my body instead of pulling back with my hands and arms.

... There are many ways to swing a golf club and in the end what works successfully for you is all that counts. Add to that, often what we think or feel we are doing is not what we are doing and that further complicates things. That said, ideally you want to swing the club head first in the takeaway and last in the down swing. In simple turns you are winding up from the club head to your feet, then unwinding the chain from your feet to the club head. If you think of your body like a spring, you want too wind up the spring from the outside in and then let it unwind from the inside out. It is a kinetic chain and the simpler the better. But again, as long as you are getting the contact/flight you want, whatever works for any individual is always best. Like Arnie said "Swing your swing."

So... I finally got to play today up on Long Island. It’s been a while, and it was great to play with guys I grew up with and don’t get to see very often anymore.

We played a course called Rock Hill. It’s not really a pristine course, but it’s fairly challenging (127 from the whites, around 6100 yards). It’s a bit of an adjustment playing bent grass as opposed to Bermuda, but I think the bent makes the game easier for a player at my level, as the ball sits up pretty nicely.

The ball seems to carry and roll out more up here than down south, and it’s always an adjustment the first round or two. I scuffled a bit on the “easier” front 9, putting up a 45, but played well (for me) on the back with a 41.

All in all it was great to be out there ona beautiful day, and we’re playing again tomorrow on a phenomenal course. I can’t wait!
One sobering note...  my PXG irons are giving me fits. I’ll give them a few more rounds, but if things don’t improve, they’ll be sold and I’ll put my old Rogue X’s back in the bag.
The 0211’s are a beautiful set of irons, but I’m having doubts about how good my over the phone fitting actually was. I’m not blaming their rep, he was very helpful. I just think a “remote” fitting is a bit of a crap shoot. Mine is looking like a miss right now.
