... Repeating a close proximity of a Graham McDowel quote "When swinging well golf is the easiest sport there is. When swinging badly it is the most difficult endeavor on the planet". Hopefully your swing soon starts feeling like an electric Lazy Boy.

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. 🤣

Early hip rotation will lead to an inside takeaway. Not necessarily a bad thing but can lead to sequencing issues and compensation issues.  For most good golfers and the pros the sequence doesn’t start with the hips. For some clubs and hands, some chest and some arms. Ben hogan talks about letting the upper body move the hips.

The hips have minimal movement before when the club reaches p2 aka parallel to the ground.

Makes sense.  Monte told me that a one-piece takeaway is trash and another awful cliche.

We are staying at the connecting island next to Kiawah, Seabrook Island. We got to play the Ocean Winds course on the island today and now I understand why the cut line at the PGA finished at +5 today. I got humbled beyond belief today. What I thought was a good drive turned into me searching for my ball in someone’s backyard nor could I keep any irons on the green. We had consistent 20mph winds in our face or crosswinds. 

Fortunately course was great and I really enjoyed the layout. After the 3rd-4th hole, I realized I wasn’t going to shoot a low round and focused on trying to make consistent shots. Ended with 2 birdies, but we won’t talk about the rest. 

My buddy had a chance to go for the green through this gap. 3rd shot on or 5. Would you do it, or punch out to get close to green?

Looks like a nice course. I play in 15-20 mph winds all the time this time of year, you learn to flight the ball down and club up at least 2 clubs. Cant wait to see your pics from the course this weekend

Beeeeautiful Course!!  I'd either aim at the tree trunk knowing I'd miss what I aim at or I'd play the hard hook around the right side of the tree!  That's the only trick shot I got.  So how did the shot turn out for him??

He got scared...he used a hybrid and sent a hooky worm burner to about 50 ft in front of the green. It was a good call.

The one price takeaway is an interesting topic. I see a lot of instructors teach it/reference it in videos.

What ive noticed is the theme really is about connection the arms and chest and keeping the hands in front of the chest. Chasing scratch talks about it in one of his videos where he has the hands at the nipples when his left arm is parallel.

A tale of two nines. Struck the ball well but just couldn’t keep it together. Unsure why I didn’t continue to trust my swing on the back 9.  I had one bad drive that I got quick on and pulled and after that it was downhill. 
 

I was 2 over through 13 holes with 4 birdies and finished the last 5 holes at +7 with double double bogey par bogey bogey for a 43 on the back and a 38 on front.  Still better than Cameron Tringale yesterday at the PGA where he went +13 over the last 5 holes. 
 

Front 9 I think I hit every fairway and most greens. Was on the fringe for a couple so it didn’t technically count but was putting. 

Get to play in a scramble on Monday and again Friday so looking forward to that.

I'm beginning to wonder about that 15 handicap you've got listed in your profile...awful lot of 3 and 4 over 9 hole rounds you keep telling us about with the Bacon Boyz 😄 😄  Remind me not to have a Nassau with you, you shark!  LOL

I’ve heard that B4.

The handicap was when I was playing back Tees and the last year have moved to Senior Tees.  There’s a big difference from 6,300 yards to 5,500/5,600 yards.

played 9 this morning before going to get my second shot

46, 3/6 fairways, 1/9 greens, 17 putts 

i started hot, par-par on the first two with a birdie putt that lipped out on #2. then i got sloppy. approaches are still pulling left, and i was blocking the driver out right. 

putter has been great the last few rounds, so i’m really happy about that.

Well, we started to play this morning even though it was cold; 52º with a 6 mph wind.  I'm OK with that, but it was 93º last weekend!!

I played the first 4 holes +1.  THEN, it started to rain, AND the wind picked up to maybe 15-20 mph.  I could see blue sky off in the distance, but that was not the direction the weather was coming from.  We quit!  I live in the desert; I don't need to play in these conditions.  By the time I got the clubs loaded into my freshly washed car... 💩, I was soaked.  It should clear up by this afternoon, and we can head back out.  Sitting by the fireplace watching the PGA instead.

Just played my 1st tournament of the year.

It was brutal, steady 20mph winds and gusts up to 35mph. And it never stopped raining, damn, even with rain gear, I ended up with wet socks and underwear.

On several holes, you had to decide between holding on to your umbrella or to your clubs, but not both.

There was a hole where my driver went about 100 yards into the wind lol

Ended up shooting 100... honestly not bad for the weather conditions.

Rain doesn't last long here; maybe an hour or two.  We need it up here this year; we are in a drought year.  We have irrigation water supplied by a canal system, but in the past we have been rationed during droughts.  We live along the Columbia River, but the irrigation canal is fed by the Yakima River which starts in the Cascades from snow melt.

Played a stableford tournament today.. rain stayed out which was good the course was pretty dry considering it was just underwater on Monday.

Drove the ball really well, few over drawn irons ..cause for some work wound the greens , but alot of up and downs to save par or even bogey.

Avoided the big numbers, even on 17 after driving into the Lake was able to escape with a one last revolution putt to save par.

Got a point on all of the holes to be +6 on the quota..

I like the progress of my game so far..
