I recently had been struggling with my driver, so I added lead tape and it really helped me square up the face. I am still adjusting to playing a fade, but this weekend it started feeling more natural and my ball striking really improved from the confidence.

I recently did the same with my D7 and it's really helped out a lot. Well, at the range at least! My last round the driving started out good but went downhill... but starting good was a change because it's been starting bad right from the first tee box. Glad to hear your confidence is going up with the big stick!

Oh yeah, it took me a couple range sessions and a couple rounds for my FIR to go back up above 60%. Getting off to a good start is very promising, and I’m sure in time the rest of the round will improve shortly.

I was hitting the ball pretty good but putting was ridiculous.  Figured I would work on Tempo so all was not lost.3444B89F-BA67-4B4B-A06F-EFC8EF54740A.jpeg.f40a6810d9be1e3c00156ed63b62923c.jpeg

That’s an automatic two-putt right?

So my plans to play three rounds in Myrtle Beach last week didn't work out very well. Went to play with Bid Stu on Monday. Got to the course and the rain came down for 20 minutes. Once it stopped the sun came out but the owners decided to close the course. So Big Stu and I chatted for a while but never got to play. 

Tuesday my resort got me a tee time at Beachwood at a discounted rate. The course wasn't up to MB standards in my opinion. Bare spots on tee boxes, crab grass in fairways, compacted sand traps. I played back a set of tees to play with the group I was paired with. Had a tough time with the thicker humidity and being at sea level and was short a lot on approaches. No matterhowmany timesitold myself to club up one, i didn't listen to myself. Wound up with an 80.  But met a bunch of nice guys and had a good time. 

Thursday was going to go back down and play with Big Stu but teen drama struck. I had to stick around and keep the girls in check. They met some boys and one of our chaperones left Thursday morning. Headed back to TN Friday morning.

Got to play my home course today. Three bogies and four birdies for a 70. Back on track. Hit 100 percent of the fairways. 

 

I'm glad you were able to meet @BIG STU, I can only imagine the stories both of y'all told. I do hate you weren't able to play a round together, I bet that would have been a blast! It's one of my goals to make it out to SC, as I'd love to meet both Stu and @JohnSmalls. Don't know when it'll happen, but I'm bound and determined to.

I'm glad you made it home safely and it sounds like you had a pretty good time, too. Well, except for the teen drama.

Bay Harbor round from yesterday.  My dad and I did a scramble to make the round not last 6 years.

The front 9, we used all of my shots… 🤦🏼‍♂️ +5, parkland course

The back 9, we used all but 3 of my shots, -2, faux links.  Lots of 3 iron off the tee.  The one time I used my 3 wood, I hit it too far, and it went into Lake Michigan… the other two were my last name… wedges again, 85° sideways, no idea what that crap was all about.  Luckily those just happened to be my dads best shots of the day.

Today's play was horrid.

I played the OK VGA State Championship today and had high hopes of playing well, even if I didn't qualify for the Regional tournament.

I shot a 94 with 1 birdie, 4 pars, 7 bogies, 4 doubles, 2 quads, and partridge in a pear tree.

Only hit 2 fairways all day and just 6 GIR.  Throw in 36 putts (three 3 jacks) and it's bound to be a bad day.

Still had a great day.  One of my playing partners shot a +1 or +2 and holed out for eagle from 82y on the 2nd hole we played.  Was fun to watch a very solid round even if I wasn't the one swinging the clubs.

I think I'm gonna take about a month off now and try to get rid of my golfer's elbow.

Played in the qualifiers for the club championship at the weekend. 

The Saturday for probably the hardest I've seen the course, gusting 25-30mph fairways and greens hard. Greens running fast with interesting pin positions. Lost 3 balls, couple of penalty drops for and 84 nett 78. Nearly NR'd 3 times and wasn't going to play the 2nd round, playing partners kept me going.

Sunday the wind had dropped so played a lot easier but missed 4 from 3 feet and a mind blip at 15 for an 82 nett 76.

Top 16 scratch and the remaining top 16 nett qualify for the knockouts. I was 2 strokes out on the handicap at 49th so will have to wait for next year.

Tuesday 9 hole group.  Yea we had greens this morning 👍.

Driver & irons were right in this morning, only used TSI2 Driver and it was finding fareways, in fact all of them!  Course was wet from last night rain so CPO.  The TSI2 was getting great carry so last of roll wasn’t hurting.  Putting was the problem, couldn’t read m the line even if “Lewis and Clark” were helping, missed 3 birdies and 2 of them from under 3’.  My irons were talking trash about me behind my back. Anyway +3 and back at it tomorrow.

First round in with the new irons yesterday 👍.  Started with a large bucket to get some initial feel and nuisances of the ZX5's and MMT80 shafts.  Overall a good start but might be overpowering the new shafts (84g vs. 98g) a whisker.  I had to really focus on tempo; particularly the transition. I shot a 41/43 at Beaverhead GC with basically a wholesale bag change as this included the new ER5v putter.  The only familiar friend was the Glide 2.0 56/12.

Initial findings are that distances are quite similar to the G410's - maybe picking up 2-3 yards and more so on the shorter irons.  This is most likely the slight increase in ball speeds seen in the LM numbers since the lofts are the same. Still a bit too early to know for certain, but ball flight alley looks tighter.  Definitely not as forgiving as the G410's on mishits but also not excessively punishing. My contact zone was pretty darn centered 6i-AW and a little loose on the 4i and 5i.  I need to work on these a bit as the shaft change may simply be more noticeable/challenging on the longer lengths.

SD on the 8i-AW was great, yielding very consistent carry distance.  This got progressively worse back to the 4i and I think that will improve as I get the timing with these grooved... or at least I hope so.

Boy oh boy did I play terrible this weekend. However my excuse is that I took my five year old out for the first time and I was to busy enjoying watching him cheat as he put the ball a foot away from the hole and ended up three putting. Don't worry buddy we've all been there.

It appears that Plantation Palms plays a little harder than Pebble Creek, or are you less familiar with the course?   Scores should come down when you start playing it all the time.
