How'd you play?

Holy moly. What a meltdown at league today. Totally befuddled as far as why it went so wrong. I guess it's just golf. I couldn't even get mad cause it didn't make sense. Four double bogies, 3 pars, 2 bogies. Just one of those days, I guess.

I think I've come to the conclusion that the less golf I play, the better I am.

I am the opposite.  I'd rather play then use the range!

I think it's just hitting in general lol. The more I play or go practice, the more swing thoughts I get in my head and try to work on. I guess I could also blame it on being a head case 🤣

Hardly!  There is a reason why GOLF is a 4 letter word!

Three weeks ago, I had my best-ever E on the front in league. Following a couple unspectacular rounds the last two weeks, I shot a PB 38 (+2) on the back last night. There was some luck, there was some skill, there were some missed opportunities, but overall, it was a great night. I decided to update the "Best Ever" thread I create after the even par. Go check it out if you are so inclined.

Got out to play Torrey North yesterday. The course was as beautiful as ever but they just punched the greens so putting was incredibly difficult.

Didn't have my best round. Shot a 98. But I was happy with my first drive of the day.Screenshot_20240521_192503_GarminGolf.jpg.bfb19c5af26c4e5fed60fffc0d29a600.jpg20240521_181827.jpg.bd137c19da88c54b28a0df70a879d69a.jpg20240521_180632.jpg.7fa1d908dd5cbb8def91186a7d75e355.jpg20240521_182823.jpg.d4e05c82be3db460e88e5243397410e3.jpg

Oye!

all this talk of stinking the place up no matter what you do! That’s the track I’ve been on for a while. So I decided to go back to basics.

fortunately I have a mlm2pro sim in my garage, and I used it to watch what my changes back to basics revealed.

started with a simple stance, and proper ball placement. Then started with just a 1/4 backswing to make sure face was at spine angle. Think of JT’s pre-swing ritual. Then gradually increased it and started hitting balls about 1/2 speed and more. Got a soft little draw going that pleased my eye, and was fairly simple to keep reproducing. One of the thoughts that was working for me (results may vary)was imagining a tennis player sweeping forehand shots .

there is a small , very small, “pause” if you will, when the backswing ends, and the striking swing begins . Almost imperceivable. But it’s at that moment where the club falls into the “slot”, and allows the little “in to out” part to happen. Then you get the baby draw or straight shot. This really worked well with irons, but for some reason I swing my driver much faster, and I still can’t get it to quite fading a bit, so for now I’m just going with that.

So anyways, I shot a 4 over, which included a stupid double on a water hole. Also only had 27 putts, so the up and down game was going too, and the putting was rally solid.

but the whole point, is to quit all the crazy over analyzing your swing and get back to basics

Shot an 85. This is decent for my skill level. But the ALMOST factor is killing me. Was at a 33 on the back coming into the last hole, par 5. Decent drive into the fairway, then fired my first shank of the day into the woods. Tricky approach and a terrible putt... Triple.

I almost shot my lowest round and lowest 9 holes. A bogey was all I needed... Sigh.

Shoulda, woulda, coulda. At least I'm seeing some improvement finally. Put two 5 irons from about 180 to 6 feet or so. Birdied one and left the other short by half a rotation.

Kept it in the fairway or close enough to it and around the green was money with the 58 degree.

Putting. Specifically lag putting killed me!

Back to the range.

Hit em straight.

First time ever playing golf in the desert and man I had a great time! Played in Chandler, AZ at Whirlwind GC - Devils Claw on Sunday and Cattail on Tues afternoon. Both were fun tracks, shooting an 87/93 respectively.

The thing I did not realize was how the ball flew down there vs the wet air of N Washington. I was hitting 340 and 350 yard drives. I hit my 6i 260 on a hole. It was absolutely crazy to get flight and roll like that. I ended up hitting 2 club difference in my irons due to the carry I was getting.

I'm in this funny place where the needle has clearly moved in my game and now I'm frustrated about hitting a whole new set of numbers(mid 70s) instead of the low 80s like I was focused on before.  Truth be told though I feel like I shouldn't be complaining because I'm finally sitting inside the scoring zone I've been aiming for since I joined the MGS forum.   😉 

I'm down to an even 9.0 (or will be in the morning) and I've not shot a round north of 87 since March.  So I'm quite pleased with my 38/42 80 today.... and yet.  One 3 putt and two doubles where it felt like my old game decided to remind me that its still in there.  31 total putts (13 front 18 back).  Good driving off the tee, but the rough was thick today and I did not find as many fairways as wanted to.  Decent approach play, but I had a lot of situations where I was not going to get enough club on the ball with the iron I needed to hit so I elected to lay up short.  🤷‍♂️  I thought I did a really good job of taking what the course gave me and not forcing anything.  Until next time.

Thanks WP and of course, you are 100% correct. Went out today, same course, same 9, hole locations a little different. I thought wind was going to be my biggest concern.(25mph with gusts of 33) I was generally pretty happy with ball striking today. Actually hit fairways and 5 GIR. Shot 39 which was much better than yesterday for sure. My downfall? I had three, 3 putt greens. Nope wind didn't cause any of it. It was the $%#@^%$ deerflies. I always had 4 or 5 deer flies constantly biting and buzzing my head. Even flying under my eyeglasses when I was putting. Talk about losing my concentration. Not sure if it was the white shirt or not but geez o peez. They were horrible today.
