    I plan on shooting even par or better this weekend. People act like golf scores are unpredictable but they are not. That's pretty good scoring on slow greens. I actually putt quite well on slow greens. I struggle when I play a course with unusually fast greens. I may like fast cars and fast women but I don't like fast greens.

    Since I went to the Rife 2 Bar Mallet and Left Hand Low,
    greens that used to bother me don't no mo.
    I just make adjustments be they fast or slow.
    Driving's OK but the putting is dough.

    I might have to purchase that Rife putter after all. Man, I made nothing on Sunday. Missed all kinds of putts inside 6 feet. Also, I kept pushing all of my iron shots. On a positive note my wedge game inside 100 yards has improved greatly. I really focus on taking a divot and following through.

    Still loving the Ping G5 driver with Aldila NVS Stiff. She was the best feeling driver I've hit and I've hit 'em all over the world. Cartoom....Cartoom.. I'm not going to race him, though, I'm going to put him out to stud.

    What? I have been on a weather-induced hiatus for the better part of 4 months and you just take a random 3 weeks off?
    My course is opening tomorrow for the first time all year, yet of course I am in Shithole, KY under Thursday. By then, the weather will be back to cold.

    Christ, I figure it will be another month at least here before I get to stand at the first tee visionilizing, "Over the hill, second shot with 4 feet, birdie!" Then hit one right, into the water and take a 5 or 6.

    Shot 75

    Post  FamousDavis on Mon Apr 07, 2014 11:29 am

    Shot 75 the other day. Relatively easy course.  Same one Kiwi and I played.  Iron game has been solid and so has driver.  Need to make more putts, though.  I should be a better putter given how good the rest of my game is.

    Well, the course opened Tuesday and between then and Wednesday it got pretty ugly. The Srixon Z-star driver was working and so was the Bettinardi center shafted putter but everything in between truly sucked. Took a day off, had to get the harley from the shop after putting on new tires and going thru a preseason full service plus doing a little riding. Friday almost broke 80 and today shooting my cap (14.2). Playing with my buddies, skins .50 cents a hole with carry overs and kicked their asses.

    Hoping this is just the beginning of a great season on the course. Well, between riding and golfing it will be a great season. God, life is great being retired at 57.

    Phucking weather. Yesterday at tee off it was 30 degrees, sunny and no wind. Bearable when we finished had gone up to 34 and cloudy. Horseshit game for a horseshit day. Today, have 8 inches of snow could possibly be up to 13 inches. 6 days will be 70. Minnesota in the spring.

    Got an issue going here guys and looking for suggestions.

    Last three times went out on the front and had a hell of a time to break fifty. Made the turn, cracked a beer and drank the whole back nine and all of a sudden I'm 10 to 13 strokes better.

    WTF?????

    Reminds me of my next door neighbour many moons ago. He played off a 4 handicap, and as soon as winter hit his pre game warm up was to slam two rum n cokes down then head to the first tee. I tried it once, think it caused my first air swing in a comp  Embarassed

    Jt... perhaps you say to yourself "WTF.... what do I have to lose" when you drink beer , and that may have helped you more relax, less tense in your fưưưkkkkkììnnnng swing  Laughing Laughing Laughing

    You have to wonder if you started drinking during your warm up, would you have broken 80?

    Seriously,  it's  the 5" between  your ears. Sometimes alcohol helps, to a piont.  Your best,  minus those 5" getting in the way, should be without influence of alcohol.

    jt you answered your own question mate. Start drinking on the 1st tee and carry on drinking the whole 18. You have scientific proof having done it the last three times out. Three times in a row represents a GR certified scientific sample.  Wink 

    Seriously my last two rounds were very similar. Barely broke 50 on the front 9 but only about 3 or 4 over on the back. No alcohol involved in my case. Just figured out a couple of things in my swing and started making a few putts. But your method sounds like more fun.  drunken

    Didn't play bad today shot 2 under my cap in league.

    Saw a couple of shots today. Which is more impressive? A 60 year old eagling a 525 par five or a 78 year old birdeing the same hole from 470?

    I'll go with the old guy. Played with him for the last 4 years at least once a week and I can say he hasn't had a two hundred yard drive since I've known him. He shot a 39 today on the front. Tip of the cap to him!!!!!!

    I'd say it's the 78 year old as well. I know many 60 year olds who can still kill the ball. Although eagling a 525 yard hole is impressive for anyone. Was the eagle a hole out or green in two? A green in two is legit.

    I've got some really good stuff going on in the next couple weeks.

    This Fri-Sat, I'm playing in the member guest of a really nice course. Probably the third best cc in Cincinnati (out of a couple dozen). Certainly better than the SPCC. Feeling good about our chances as well. I'm carrying a 5.5 which is 3.5 shots higher than the beginning of the year. Yes, I've played poorly enough to earn that rise in cap, but I'm over the hump. My last 3 rounds are closer to my style of golf, which does well in these types of comps. I'm normally a guy who makes birdies and bogeys, not a string of pars. I just wasn't making birdies earlier, which had a lot to do with my par 5 play. Seems I'm back to normal. My partner and I normally play straight up, and it turns out he's carrying a 7.

    Then on June 23rd, I've got an expense paid trip up to Columbus to play Muirfield. This includes drinks, caddies, lunch, dinner, tournament prizes, and transportation. Being in Cinci, I've been up to watch the Memorial several times and have been itching to play the course. The pros beat it up, but to my golfer's eye, it looks like a SOB. I'm sure the tourney won't play the pro tees, and I don't think I'd want to.

    The member-guest was a blast. Our day 1 total had us solidly in 2nd place in our flight, and we went 2-0-1 collecting 17.5 points.

    I started putting pretty terribly for the last 5 or so holes on our 3rd match, yet we still won the match. My partner played decently on holes where I did not. Classic ham and egg situation. I had 5 birdies out of the first 27 holes and my partner had 3.

    We went out pretty hard on Friday. I remember tequila shots vaguely. Felt pretty awful on Saturday.

    On Saturday, I completely lost it with the putter and my partner lost it on everything else. We got beat 6.5 - 3.5 in the morning match, where one of our opponents didn't even finish half the holes. I wasn't hitting it great, but I still hit probably 5 or 6 greens and was never stymied off the tee. It was so strange to just lose all touch. I couldn't get either speed or line remotely close. That match effectively ended our bid.

    The afternoon match was the same as the morning, but I actually hit the ball great. Putted terribly. I'm talking multiple 3 putts from inside 15 feet. Another 6.5 - 3.5 loss. Finished T3 in our flight out of 6 and lost all side bets.
