....The Tour Speed was abducted on #15 - absolutely certain a group going down the adjacent fairway picked it up.  ....

It might be that Yellow Ball was on that other fairway and the Tour Speed decided to run away and join him for some adventures!?!?!  🙃

The struggles continue. 81(41/40). I’m lost with driver swing… Just horrible. I didn’t hit a lot of greens because I was trying to recover from the rough, behind trees, etc.

Had a bittersweet round yesterday. 

Played Aldeen Golf Club in Rockford for the first time.  It was gorgeous.  It was both the nicest and the most challenging course I've ever played.  Lots of hazards, and little hills line many of the fairways.  If you aren't accurate off the tee (raises hand), your second shot will be from a funky lie.  Greens have multiple tiers and generally aren't flat.  Weather was decent at first but got pretty chilly later.  After shooting +5 on hole one, I went +5 over the next eight holes.  On the back nine I had eight doubles and a triple.  Went 46/55 for a 101.  My driver was generally decent but errant. 

We all kind of fell apart on the back nine when it both turned colder and one buddy left at the turn.  He's apparently had the driver yips for a few years and this season I've watched as it bled into the rest of his game.  He wasn't hitting anything well today and he was getting more and more frustrated so he left.  He'd been thinking about giving up the game recently and I was thrilled when he invited us to join him at this course.  He's been a great source of advice and gave me a set of clubs and a bunch of balls when my son and I took up the game earlier this year.  I dont blame him stopping if the game is no longer fun, but I really hope he comes back next year, I really enjoy playing with him.

It must be that time of year because I found myself at the same place with my driver swing this weekend....completely lost it.  And as recently as last Monday I was swinging it great which makes it especially frustrating.  My putter has taken a vacation as well.  The rest of the clubs, especially the wedges, saved my score yesterday evening and today.

Aggravating isn’t it?! The end of the year seems like it should be the time where everything has come together and isn’t even thought about anymore. Ugh. What a game we love!

How did I play today??? Horrible, just horrible!  If I wasn't topping the ball, I hit if fat. The last time I played, two weeks ago, I hit the best game I ever have.  Today, not so much!

... Every day is an adventure ain't it? I wish they were all good adventures but not even true for Tiger.....

I know this is self inflicted swing angst from trying to get a better wrist set in my swing.  Doing videos for the Sub70 849 Pro driver review I noticed I was less than optimal with that part of my swing.  Made an adjustment that has translated to the irons pretty well but is very inconsistent with the driver swing.  I am out of sequence and really stuck with an over the top move to varying degrees.  It's crazy how it's only the driver swing.  Fairway woods, hybrids and irons are all fine....not that I'm complaining about that! 🙂

Edit to add.....I think its time to switch up putters for a round or two.  I have lost my feel with the Heppler Fetch and though I know its my fault not the putters, it may help to look at something different.  So I am going back to a vintage Ping Anser which is what I use to practice with at home.

The shaft leaning forward is the problem especially on the tightly shaved areas. You are probably changing your height thru the ball, getting quick in transition and yank the handle which is going to lead to the chunked shots, standing up is going lead to blading it. More than likely missing rotation in your motion.

These are common mistakes many make.

Ball should be played slightly forward unless trying to hit a low shot then play it back. Phil says playing a ball in the middle means one is indecisive on the shot they want to hit. A good video. Also worth the cost to buy his use the bounce 2.0 series on rebellion golf

 

Agreed.  I had a reasonable short game before I came across Monte and Rebellion Golf.  For some reason I always played the ball a little forward of center for most shots.  The bump and run was not a shot that I commonly played, so I rarely had the ball behind center.

Monte's Use the Bounce 2.0 video showed me how and why to play this shot.  I became a better chipper when I rotated more and as Monte emphasizes, get your humerus (upper arm) over your lead foot after contact.  Made a world of difference!  In his video he tosses golf balls underhanded to spots on the green.  That motion is the same as basic chip motion shown here.  If you don't get your humerus forward, it's easy to chunk and blade the shot.

It was GGs training that got me to understanding the rotation part but montes use the bounce 2.0 solidified my partial shot wedge game.

It’s a lot better than the first one. He goes into bunkers and different shots
