I have completed my mission. Two weeks ago I reported in with a goal to break a 1.0 handicap this season. Typicially when you feel something great about to happen the golf gods throw a monkey wrench in. Well not this time. I tied my seasons low scores with another 68 this morning. After entering my score it said my pending handicap is a .8.  I started off the season with a 1.6 and it grew to a 2.0. But since May 3rd it has consistantly dropped by small increments. What a great morning for me. Driving great, short game was spot on and my putting was superb. I even had one of the grounds crew drive up and complement me. He said "it looks like you are having a good round today, I've seen some of your shots". 

I got my goal accomplished just in time to start the Maxfli ball testing. The pressure is off for the season. I'll laminate my GHIN card when the update comes out and put it in my golf photo album to be part of my golf history. Mission accomplished!

 

 

Man your game is one I can only hope to get to someday. Congrats you’re an animal!

That's awesome! I think we've talked a bit before but I'm trying the same thing. But I've been stuck at 4.1 for awhile. I shot a season low 74 on July 10, then lost 3 weeks of play to that tropical storm that blew through the Midwest. Got back to it this weekend though. If be happy getting back down to a 2.3, my best ever by seasons end.

I played my first ever solo round today, son was on a weekend trip with friends.  Not sure I could do it again.  Teed off at 6:40 so it was pretty empty.  Lost a ton of balls; still have a tough time tracking my shots and my depth perception is horrendous.  Son can usually keep track for the both of us.  Also, being alone meant I got into my head a lot more.  My son and I like to crack jokes and keep things loose whenever we mis-hit something (which is still often) and since it was just me, I was much more easily frustrated at times.

Would definitely enjoy golfing as early as possible more often.  Playing by myself, at my current level, is a much more iffy proposition.  Shot a 105, which is actually one of my better rounds.

You can do it. Good weather and good course conditions really help. Keep us posted, I'm pulling for you.

The conditions have been the struggle this year. But weather has been better than usual, except July.

Big round this AM. Me and the guy got out early to beat a huge thunderstorm that rolled through. I typically walk but didn’t want to chance it today with the rain so I took a cart. Initially it was a bad decision because the group in front of us was terrible. Incredibly slow, playing from the wrong tees for their skill level and playing music loudly at 7am. Tee times typically reserved for the hardcore golfers that want to be in and out in about 3.5 hours. The round started out a little rough +3 though 3 missed 2 pars by 3 putting. Then things picked up nicely with 4 pars in a row. Nothing spectacular just taking what I’m given and making my putts. Tested my luck on 8 and tried to go under a tree with a punch shot that cost me 2 strokes. Missed an easy out on 9 but no major harm. Cruised in with a 41 on the front. Things got interesting in the back when I started to heat up on 11 with a close pin shot. Bunker play got me on 11, 12 was just a bad hole all around. My least favorite hole on the course. After that it was 5 pars in a row. Playing from the fairway and hitting green. Saved a par on 17 with a good pitch and 10 foot put. I was feeling good on 18 and wanted to cut some distance but went OB right. Took my medicine and played to the fairway. Just missed dunking my 4th shot from 100 yards out for a birdie. One putted to save par. Even though it was 41/41 82. My best round playing from the gold tees which are one up from the tips. Score differential was 7.9, taking my handicap down to 10.7!!!

I’ve been quite the downer in this thread lately, so let me change things up a bit here.

I played with my Saturday league yesterday. We played low net low gross with 44 guys split evenly between an A&B flight. I was in the A, so I played the whites at 6100.

The 2nd hole is the #1 hdcp hole and I made a mess of it, shanking a layup shot (decel) in the tree line. I proceeded to barely get it out, still leaving 170 and needing to punch something under overhanging branches. Triple bogey 7. Two holes later on a par 5 I hit my drive OB, had to reload and made another triple, just to show everyone the first one wasn’t a fluke.

Thats when things turned around, thanks to a good friend who happened to be my cart partner. He lit into me while we were driving to the next tee, basically telling me to get my head out of my a**. He said whatever it was “I was working on” wasn’t working and go back to my old swing. His language can’t be repeated here, but he was right.
He told me… I’m not a kid anymore and not even the most beautiful swing I make now isn’t going to have the speed to get me much more than what I was.  🤔 
Then… I was a good player, and even though my swing wasn’t perfect, it was good enough to have gotten me on the verge of single digits, and the new one had me pushing a 20. 🤔 

I couldn’t argue. It took a few holes to get reacclimated with my “old move” but I knew immediately it would come back. Sure enough I finished the round with the best ball striking I’ve had in a while. I missed a bunch of putts I’d liked to have made, but I put up a 46 on the front and 39 on a back 9 which has always bedeviled me.

Unfortunately I’d dug myself too big a hole though. We play 5 places in the net, and that triple I had on the 2nd hole was the tiebreaker. So I lost a 4 way tiebreaker for 2nd with a net 72 and finished 6th (out of the money).

I left feeling very encouraged though, and I’m going to play a money game tomorrow on our Dye Course, and league on Tuesday. Hopefully the “old me” gets me out of my funk. 😜



 

Good luck tomorrow 👍

What an absolute crapshow yesterday was. A course I shot 77 on last week, I shot 84 on yesterday. It was almost 100% due to driving. Putting wasn't great, but only one 3 putt. If I was trying to hook, it started right and kept going. If i wanted to slice, it started left and kept going (I'm left handed). It's made me want to take a few weeks off.

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.

After having not picked up a club in a month (busy plus my range sessions in May/June progressively got worse and and more more frustrating), I played with a group of friends on Saturday. While far from great, I played far better than I expected. Several great swings with the driver (and several other solid ones) and 2 very good  shots from the tee  on par 3s.  Putting was solid. Wedges were pretty bad. But all in all, it was a god day.

Messy round on Saturday. Probably not too bad after a couple of weeks of lockdown and blustery 15mph wind that seemed to be blowing in multiple directions at the same time.

14 over playing off 7. Drove it ok, had a few misses left with an unexpected draw, and only one miss right. Irons were a very missed bag. Putted ok, but had a couple of 3 putts after leaving myself downhill putts on very slick greens. Bunker play was a absolute highlight, from 5 green side bunkers got up and down 3 times and missed a 3 footer. Best was off the downslope to a pin 3 yards from the lip. Played it to 2 feet and made the putt.

Hope this continues to the new course Foz.

As for me, it was very messy. I was hitting some very very good shots but spoiling that by hitting some very very bad ones. Putted like poop too, just to top it off.

To be honest Matt, the day before I played with my Grandsons on a course never played before, Cheval, I shot a 50/49:99 and was striking the ball very well with my backup set of Hogan Ptx’s.  It does not calculate, 99…..75. Only the Golf Gods know for sure. Maybe you’ll have a bounce backround this week.
