38 out 41 in for 79. New goal is shooting par. G.I.R. is the most important stat in golf at my level of play. 6-8 GIR's are not enough. It seems you have to get that number up into the teens. Workin on it ! Hit Em Good !
This year I have really gotten back into playing golf. I had taken a break from playing cause I lost the love of the game. At the beginning of the year I was shooting low to mid 90's. There was a lot of rust to be knocked off…but I have been playing twice a week for the last 2 months and it's starting to pay off. Saturday I shot my best round ever with a 79! I had 11 pars, 6 bogies, & 1 Double.
Great front nine yesterday, 34, 3 birdies, 1 bogey, 6 greens in reg. Back nine was another story only 2 greens in reg, 2 bogeys and a double, hit OB, for a 40. Was hoping for my first round of the year under par, unfortunately I can’t keep it together the past few years.
Got in 9 after work yesterday before it got dark. It was cold and the wind was blowing so not my favorite conditions to be out in but I managed a 43 with a birdie on #7 at Willowbrook Golf Course. I hit the flag stick on my approach shot but luckily the ball didn't fly off the green. Ended up with an 8 foot or so putt down hill and drained it.
I was 7hcp when I quit spring 2013, I always used blade type irons, FTiq 10*, short game was my best and favorite.
Started back, been have all kinds of problems, pulls and hooks, so I started setting up ball in middle of stance and hitting the ball pretty good. I pulled out a set of X20's and first time out shot 74......well that hasn't happened again.
I just haven't been hitting driver very well so I'm dumping it for awhile. Today I tried the FTi fairways 3/5 and I hit them extremely long and out of control, going back to my 904f 17*
Today 43/37, 3 fairways 5 greens front, 0 fairways 2 greens back......front had 4 chances to up and down for par successful once, back 5 of 6, 18 putts front 11 back
Last 2 weeks the tees available are extreme front, not even rated.
I've found I play much better if I walk, most of the time I'm playing with someone riding and I end up riding some so they don't have to wait for me.
Long ago I was in the fairway probably about 90% or better, today 5 of 14
Also 9 gir was good, today I had 8 on the front.......3 on the back, but still 8 on the front
My wedge play use to be fantastic, today 4 of 7, which ain't bad but only 1 save was because of a good wedge shot.
My putting use to be better than wedges, today I had 32 putts with 2-3 putts
76 today, but I just keep remindiing myself, I'm playing the way up front winter tees
Today was probably my last for the year, if I'm lucky I might get a day off and a good weather day at the same time.
