- 35/38 = 73 (+1)
- 4/15 FIR
- 11/18 GIR (4 birdies)
- 29 Putts (1 3-putt, 9 2-putts, 8 1-putts)

Scott Fawcett is not wrong when he says winning/playing well is about as much luck as anything else! 

I had a lesson yesterday and got sorted out and hit the ball excellently with everything today, but of the four birdies, I'd say only one I would have expected to go in. Birdied Nos. 1, 3, 9 and 10 and was actually -2 heading to 13. Bogeyed 13 after blocking my tee shot just a bit too far right and then having a "two chip" (DECADE term), and then had a bad three-putt bogey from 30 feet on No. 14 (also a double no-no in DECADE). 

Another gorgeous morning (albeit a bit steamy!) for golf and it's always great to put together that kind of round. It's fun making birdies.

Stuffed a 9 iron on the par three No. 8 hole to within 10 feet. Best par three shot of the year, unfortunately I gave the putt a little too much gas and went through the break for a tap-in par.

Great round Cody, looks like your handicap is moving in the right direction.

Did you take the plunge on DECADE Foundations then?

I re-watched all of the first month that he had given away free a while back. Basically the Tiger Five plus the mental expectations parts. I think this year I'm going to hold off, but I do plan on going in on it next spring.

Solid rounds man and I said it before every time you bounce back from the previous rounds that you were disappointed with. Awesome to read

Not gonna lie, I'm really frustrated with my game right now.

Keep plugging away. Progress is s-l-oooooooo-w slow slow and very incremental. For most of us mere mortals, anyway ☺️

Keep up the good attitude and the results will start to follow (I know this cuz I, uhhh, I uhhh know this guy .. see? .. that's been struggling with all those same frustrations...)

Thank you for the encouragement! It's difficult sometimes not to let the frustration seep in, I'm really working on the mental game and yesterday instead of asking "why?" I was working on asking myself "what can I do this next shot?". I wanted to start focusing on using each shot as a learning experience and building different shots for my game. I've done this for a while in my short game and have started relishing challenging greenside shots and that area of my game has improved.

Golf is hard and golf is frustrating.  We have a good day and even periods where we play well and we have a bad day and periods where we play poorly and wonder why we even play the game.   Everyone has gone through this no matter how good of a golfer you are.    Play the game like you mentioned and try to enjoy the challenge;  just try to accept the prior shot for what it is and try to execute the next shot to the best of your ability.

I'm also over here rooting hard for you. I enjoy, so much, reading about your game and the desire for you to get better. That's what I love about the group of golfers on here, we're not a bunch of + handicaps bragging about 350 yard drives. Instead, we're regular golfers who enjoy sharing our joys and heartbreaks and all want to be the best at this game we can.

Well said. We are all a gang of battered golfers wanting to improve, looking for advice and looking for the banter and friends this place brings us. Some do it for exercise, some sport and most of us for fun and the hunt of improvement. Keep up the work!

Well it's a real struggle for me at the moment course condition not really suiting my game. Got beat in my matchplay tie 5 and 4 that's me out of all the matchplay events had 85 net 79 on Saturday's comp. Then got beat in the League match yesterday 5 and 4.

We have had very little rain in Scotland over the past 3 weeks and the courses are playing firm and fast. Yesterday we also had a +20mph wind. Getting loads of distance just can't get the ball to stop. 9th 140yds to go hit a small PW bounces on the green twice and disappears onto the railway line. Being 4 down at the 304yd 12th, partner in the fairway, smoked one down wind at green through the back into the penalty area. I must have gone through 10 of the 14 matchplay holes with my approach shots. Another 2 I tried to play short and run in and they ended up short. Chipping is also a struggle off tight lies.

In the doldrums at the moment maybe need to try and practise knockdown shots because my high ball flight is totally unpredictable.

Playing a couple of links courses next week and entering the ballot for the Old Course so hoping for better play.

Another 83 yesterday in Round one of the Diamante Classic.  Our team came in 3rd in our flight for the round of Better Ball. Didn't pay for the daily payout, but it did pay off for the Player Pool (Calcutta).  I had 4 doubles as the wet ground and unfamiliar greens continue to give me some issues.

Today's event will be a modified Stableford.  Looking for the team to do a bit better.  The guys we played with yesterday were on fire and ham and egging it well, shooting a net 63 mainly because the higher handicap player of that team didn't seem to make that many mistakes on the stroke holes.  We came in with a net 68 having both of us making a double on one of the holes.  Second was a net 65.

This is a really nice course, albeit wet from the heavy rains of recent days.  Level lies are relatively rare and the greens all have multiple levels and lots of undulations.

Yeah, 6700 is pretty much my limit. It's normally not the par 4s and 5s that get me, but long par 3s where I have to hit hybrids or 5w, I'm toast.

 

Golf is hard man. Stick to it and something will click! Then after it does and you think you have everything figured out, you'll play like dog water. Vicious cycle!

Nice round on a new course! Good luck again!

I think the system has its benefits, but playing with someone who is writing down the results of every shot, when they're struggling, sucks. Wanted to kick @mr.hicksta in the nuts when he was doing it, but I didn't say anything cuz I'm a good friend 🙂

All those rounds and I never knew I was in danger 😆

Eastern NC Course Alert!!!!

There is an incredible course in Rocky Mount, NC, Belmont GC. Got to play it for the 1st time Sunday, 6/6 and returned 6/8 to get some stink out. Fairways are exceptional and greens very nice (Tifeagle Bermuda).

1st round 4 putted the 1st hole and hit my tee shot OB on #2, those 4 strokes turned a 78 into an 83 :(. Had a couple other, "1st time playing the course" mistakes that I corrected. 

Tuesday there is "Throwback Tuesday" where the greens fees are much lower, a senior can play for under $30!

Shot a great second 9 after 4 bogies on front 9.

Only if I could putt better..... but, I did make one nice long putt for a bird.

i would guess my make percentage between 2-10 foot putts to be about 10 - 15 percent...

Played a round yesterday evening, it was a get out of the car and in the tee box. So it took a few holes (9) 😜to get going.
Now that weather turn from Winter to Hot AF in blink of an eye, ball flight is a lot different now. Drove the ball well, specially in the back 9, Irons were solid, a little long (warmer weather, ball traveling more). Chipping was great after 4-5 holes, getting that feel going, I hit the shots I was trying to hit, so I was happy with that even if they rolled out more than expected and Putting was steady, should have made some putts , but I was happy with the stroke all day.

18th was interesting, as I hit Hybrid of the tee because anything is is too much, trying to keep in the fairway, well I barely got the ball off the ground, it skip from the tee box across the creek and it brushed the tall grass to just run out enough, (of Course this was crucial as I was down 1 at this point in the bets) Some how I snuck in a Birdie and win .. By buddy of course saying that shouldn't count as I barely pass the tee and should have been in the water( good friend I tell you)
