How'd you play?


Recommended Posts

I can't complain too much about my $10 per 9 golf course Midland CC. It's a little short, has a couple of narrow holes, the greens hold nicely, but I think it's time for a change of scenery for a couple of rounds. I am happy to try out Fire Fox in a month or so on a vacation. I played 2 balls, lost none, and shot 38 and 42. It was 95 degrees and although I drank plenty of water, the heat got to me. Two years ago, 38 or better would've been my score, but now, I'm way into my own head and I was lucky to average a 40. The course/slope rating isn't too high, so this is jacking my handicap. On a bright side, I'm trying my best to hit a cut off the tee with my woods. I was hitting this terrible pull hook, for a few years, and it's back to my old slice ball that helped me as a kid

When my wife asked if I wanted to leave Maine and move to where she grew up, I couldn't say no to Pinehurst, NC. I honestly don't spend much money on golf equipment, but I'm constantly reading reviews in case I ever get ready to buy

I swing left handed and have been the State of Maine Left Hander's champion since 1997, the last year they held the tournament. I'm currently a 6.3 handicap. Trying to get lower, but my gut gets in the way.


Driver: :taylormade-small: R11 9 degree turned 1 degree lower (Bought since it was on sale at Dick's)

Irons: :titelist-small: 990's S300 Stiff shafts bought when I was in college. (Received a personal use discount, otherwise would've stuck with my Hogan Edge's)

3 Wood: :callaway-small: GBB Epic 15 degree (only club newer than 5 years in the bag)

52/56/60 :taylormade-small: Z Spin wedges (heck of a deal $100 for all 3 at Dick's in 2013)

Putter: :odyssey-small: White Hot XG SRT (bought because I won credit for a long drive in 2010)

Hey all,

Been a minute!  Wanted to hop in to see if I could get some wisdom from fellow MGS mates.

Have been having my greatest season to date, down to a 5 handicap, shooting in the 70s- but on Saturday, whoa.  91, and the club literally felt foreign in my hand.  I wasn't mad and had a great time (laughed her off), but let's be honest, today all I can think about is what went wrong.  And so I ask, how do you all shake off that one bad round and not overthink it all?

Had a piss poor ball striking day with my irons today. Was hitting everything high on the face which I never do. Scrambling was so so also yet I shot a 92. If I could putt like I did today on my good striking days I’d break 90 finally.

HUMID!!!  Yuck!!

Shot a +6 Humid, Stinky, Yucky 9.

Luckily it was a good group of Bacon Boyz so we settled on ridiculing every bad shot which there were many.

I would live in Florida if it wasn’t for the humidity no questions asked

so no scoring records but sloooowly trending in a positive direction!

Incremental improvement is moving in the right direction, and that is awesome!

... Pretty sure I heard Sunday after another one that Brian Harman has seven 4 putts since going the tour. Perhaps you guys could do a 2 man Pro Am scramble! 

Thinking back on Sunday's 4-putt, I believe could have had a better score than double bogey if I had chipped that 100 footer instead of trying to putt it.  Just because I was on the green didn't mean I had to putt it.  Never practice 100 foot uphill putts, but I practice 35 yard pitch shots every time I go to the course.  Now I know...
