How'd you play?


MmmmmmBuddy

Forgot to add....

Yesterday's round, I also put my Tour Edge E8 Beta strong 3w in play, in the 3w slot.  It's 12* spec, but I believe it's actually closer to 13* (based on my completely scientific exam with a protractor, LOL).  I cut it down to 42.5".  Has a Rogue Silver 70 in it.

Had a few occasions to hit it, including a shot from 235-240 off the deck into a stiff wind.  Not sure I have any business hitting such a club off the deck any longer, but it worked pretty well.  I got caught up in the rough, my shot would have reached the green if I could have kept it in the fairway/apron leading up to it.

Gave me a brief feeling of ruggedness about my game.  😉

It's funny, my round yesterday was in temps that got as high as 46*, with 15-20 mph winds.  Helped that the sun was shining, admittedly.  🙂

... Crazy how fast you acclimate to your surroundings Rick. 50* and sunny in March back in Chicago I would certainly be playing, although 50* was my cold limit. But after 105-115* temps all summer here in Phoenix my blood has already thinned and 60* is my limit, although unless I am playing with out of town friends for a visit, I am not playing unless it is above 65* with sunshine! 🤪

... Ever since shooting a commercial in the winter that would run in the spring I don't ever wanna see my breath. It was around 35* and we were in sweaters only and because you could see our breath we had to suck on ice cubs just before each take. It was a long cold day and one of the reasons I never play in the morning.

Yeah, but it was only a few years ago that I played when it was below freezing, and my breath froze on my beard.  Quite a sight... would have laughed, but face movements hurt from the hair being pulled.  Then I got old(er) and I don't do that anymore... unless I have a heater inside the covered cart!!

Driving has been too loose , Snap hook 4/9 drives from the tees last time out. I not sure what Im doing wrong My set up seems to be the same, The rest of the  5/9  drives were beautiful high deep fades.  Tee is always same height. I have an open stance and for whatever reason my hands turn over unpredictable  The first two snaps I could find in open fairway with few tress left side  but the last two was way over the other fairway  that I had to scramble to get back and other was OB . I got afraid of driver later in the round and had used another club to tee off.

This happens. Seem like I snap hook at least once every. round . with average 1/4 times  with the driver , the rest goes straight or slightly right .

Got some tips now that I will try . One is to lower the tee height to be more consistent( I  tend to tee up really high  above way above the crown  as I like to hit up , but I dont need to tee it that high)  . two is to extend my arms and check if  the clubface  slightly open or shut 

I have unknowingly thinking my driver face is open but when I extend arms I see that driver face is  actually shut.  

When i swing My left shoulder /shoulder blade moves more forward  than up , not sure which chicken /egg

my left shoulder lunges or my  grip clubface to shut  . probably a combo

I never really feel comfortable with holes that have  treeline  fairway that  has severe dogleg right to left  at around 200-250 yards  I feel like that sets up for  snap hook even when I try not to

I do that occasionally, but I'm old.  Happens to old people because we don't rotate enough or at the same speed as when we are warm and not stiff; the arms take over and... hook!!  I did it today early on the front nine.

from the Dye tees at 6400 yards and 139 rating

You've got more stones than my group. We played a few years ago and were already planning on playing the Kiawah Tees (6200) before we got out there and winds were already up in the morning. Even though everyone was a single digit HDCP, we knew that course was a beast and needed all the help we could get. Sounds like you had a great time!

Ha. Funny you mention that, for I was planning on playing the Kiawah tees … but the wind was very light yesterday morning, and only picked up slightly on the back. Along with that, my caddie saw my shots and distance on the range and challenged me to play the Dye tees. 

Two single digit handicappers played the Ocean tees at 6700, and 1 other gentleman played from the Kiawah tees. 

My looper told me that he caddied for Ben Curtis during a practice round once … he shot 70 while hitting just 6 GIRs. Crazy.

Early morning Big Boy 9, needed to see where elbow problems are.  Bogied 1st hole but Parred next 4 then 2 Bogies Par last 2 for 39.  
Elbow mild pain, not unbearable, I can live it.  Played from Senior Tees and was OK with it.

Next up Bacon Boyz Friday!!
