    After a five month layoff during which I might have swung a club for a total of 1 hour max, went out today at the local muni which just opened up this morning. Shot an 88 which I am ok with. Short game was pretty good, just had a hard time getting to the green.

    This weekend was one of those taunting unlucky rounds. Played Saterday.Started Par Par: 3rd hole I have 150meters in on the middle of the fairway. Hit 9iron as this is my 150meter club....Get a flier that ended 30meters over the green..... I lost it thereafter.Shot a 77. Played yesterday.hit every green in regulation shot within 10meters of the pin,even may it be in the bunker.

    When I see a golfer like yourself preoccupied with distance and hitting it long, I think of a quote from Shawshank Redemption by Morgan Freeman (Red):

    There's not a day goes by I don't feel regret for the way I used to play the game. Not because I'm in here, or because you think I should. I look back on the way I was then: a young, stupid kid who committed that terrible crime of trying to hit the ball long. I want to talk to him. I want to try and talk some sense to him, tell him the way things are. But I can't. That kid's long gone and this old man is all that's left. I got to live with that. Rehabilitated? It's just a bullshit word. So you go on and stamp your scorecard, sonny, and stop wasting my time. Because to tell you the truth, I don't give a shit.

The Callaway X-24 Hot irons with stock steel shafts (Uniflex) arrived this week so I decided to try them out. These clubs feel fantastic. It's a much different feel than past X-series offerings, with more of a crisp feel. Also, the stock steel shaft wasn't nearly as whippy and gave the ball a perfect trajectory.

    On the course, I hit 14 of 18 greens in reg and had several putts for birdie and missed all but one. Still, I shot 75 (with 2 three putts and a double). The long irons are silly easy to hit without ballooning. I think they added about 5 yards to every shot. I like the black finish but I can tell it's going to wear off of the face and sole eventually.
    Unless they were seriously tough greens, 3 over is a pretty crap score for 14 GIR. If I hit even 10 GIR I go close to par, Ive never hit 14 in a round but If I did I woild be going under par for sure. Good score all the same but you must feel like you let a good chance slip.

    You are mis informed sir...My 9iron goes 150m at the moment,but that used to be the distance of my 56degree SW... I've lost alot of distance trying to hit more straight. Must say it has worked, But I would still swop out another 20% of distance for an extra 20% more accuracy....I have a 115m 8iron shot,an 125m 7iron shot,a 150/155 6iron shot in the bag for accuracy and slight roll out fade's or draws... Yesterday I hit a 190meter 5iron which is my normal distance with a 3/4 shot expecting a flier and the other 1/4 was provided by the flier indeed....So the last thing I would mention is my distance.Putting would be the first:)

    Fantastic weather yesterday! 65* and a slight breeze off the ocean.
    I was killin' my hybrids yesterday. 200 out and hitting greens. Putting was good, despite the sanded and rough greens.
    My driver let me down, so I teeded it up with my 3wood. Not the distance, but damn accurate!.
    I had one fun hole where I landed the tee shot in the trees. I saw a gap to hit it out to the fairway, but instead hit a tree and it rebounded back and hit me in the head. It was so fast I didn't have time to duck!

    Played in a shamble tournament yesterday. My group had 2 guys around 10 - 12 caps and 1 guy who really never plays. I didn't think driving was a weak spot of my game, but apparently it is. Given a good drive off every tee, I think I'd be under par more often than not. It also helps that you get to place the ball in the fairway or rough. The SPCC is in the process of making the course play like a mother fucker for the US Open Local Qualifier.
    And putting seemed much better. I made a couple bombs, but those are more luck than anything else. It was the shorter ones that were good. Didn't really throw any shots away on the greens, and most putts started on my intended line with good speed. I lightened my grip pressure and made a better transition from back to through.

    no comments after the weekend....

    Anyway Played Saterday. Had an awefull round of golf with a good score...Won 2nd place in a individual S/F open division. Played of an 6handicap shot 74, First 9 holes I hit only 2 GIR, had 6 up and downs. 2nd nine wasnt worth mentioning except for two birdies on two par3s. lost about 8 shots due to course conditions.

    i just hate to take a practise swing and the club bounces of the ground because its hard, then when the real swing comes you keep the accelaration but the club digs underneath the ball....hate it hate it hate it.

    i have two SW's just incase this happens and I am able to feel the bounce.

    A 6 handicap should never complain about shooting a 74. In fact, if I heard a 6 handicap bemoaning a 2 over round in a comp, I'd be pretty pissed about it.

    Fluffy is a sand bagger... statistically speaking, if one kept accurate handicap then his/her normal scores would be around "Course rating + handicap +3", i.e. if it's a par-71 course, he normal scores should be around 71+6+3 = 80... As I said, he's a sand bagger

    Once is fine but it's very improbable to follow it up with another below cap round. If the HC chair is worth his salt that players cap should be adjusted. Here's USGA's page on odds...

    I think it also depends upon your cap and which way you are trending.
    Very high caps can go out and shoot a 92 if they catch a few breaks and shoot 5 or 6 under their cap. Certainly more likely than me shooting 3 or 4 under par, which has never happened.

    That link basically takes the high capper into consideration. A 0-5 cap has a 151:1 odds of being 4 under while a 22-30 capper has 40:1 odds. The second table is about the odds of a golfer shooting well below their cap. The suggest that 1:258 is a reasonable odds for back to back rounds. Basically equates to 3 under and 5 under. If the golfer is below that then, yes, the golfer is trending lower and his cap should be adjusted. Rarely does the HC chair do any of this...

    Haha Love it.....The next day I played a round,shot the first nine around 48,,,,but had 3 hours of sleep.lol

    in South Africa our handicaps can drop/go up quite quickly if you play +-10 rounds a month, two months ago I was a 3,then they introduced hollowtining and my putts wouldnt drop...There's your 6 handicap.....The other day I played a 74 but had to walk all over my line to make sure the green is more or less flat.lol.i know its a penalty...for all 18 then..


    Shot a 71 the other day....Cant remember of what.Probably a 5 handicap;)Naah in all seriousnes the 74 round i propbably threw "THREW" away 8 shots.take half of that with all the probabilities and it should be around 70;)


    Am I stirring enough here?

    Statistically speaking our rounds should be as below:
    1 out of every 20 rounds = 3 or more below handicap....Do you know what pisses me off.in all seriousness....This is actually more or less correct....

    anyway, the reason for my unhappy 74 off a 6 handicap is as below:

    1st: hit my drive with a 10-15 yard draw,saw it landing about 10 meters above the ground in the middle/right fairway about 290 meters out over a bunker....Got to the fairway and my ball was about 10meters into the rough behind a tree that I have NEVER been short of..Hit 1 iron stinger about 90meter of wet grass but the ball didnt bounce so was short.Bogey 1shotLOST

    2nd: drive the short par4 just left of the green, 310meters, chip & putt,Birdie

    3rd: boring stroke 2,Stinger 1 iron 230m down fairway. 160meter 5iron 3/4 shot 2meters from pin, two people putting on my same line with a left to right turn of about 2/3 balls, hit mine 1 ball left with more speed and it didnt turn an inch, 3feet back putt = par, 1shotLOST because didnt turn

    4th: par3 up 7 down bunker proximity to hole 4m

    5th: par 5 2nd shot into green middle of fairway 190meter= pull hook 2nd shot left,tempo to fast, take unplayable drop out of the only bush where my ball could land chip and put from 50m.

    6th: 330 drive downhil par5 and i make 5...cant remember how.

    The one hole that killed me was the 11th. Par5, 2nd shot closer then 100m on easy pin. left fairway...get te where my ball should be and no-where to be found...made 7...where shouldve been easy 4

    1st: hit my drive with a 10-15 yard draw,saw it landing about 10 meters above the ground in the middle/right fairway about 290 meters out over a bunker....Got to the fairway and my ball was about 10meters into the rough behind a tree that I have NEVER been short of..Hit 1 iron stinger about 90meter of wet grass but the ball didnt bounce so was short.Bogey 1shotLOST

    2nd: drive the short par4 just left of the green, 310meters, chip & putt,Birdie

    3rd: boring stroke 2,Stinger 1 iron 230m down fairway. 160meter 5iron 3/4 shot 2meters from pin, two people putting on my same line with a left to right turn of about 2/3 balls, hit mine 1 ball left with more speed and it didnt turn an inch, 3feet back putt = par, 1shotLOST because didnt turn

    4th: par3 up 7 down bunker proximity to hole 4m

    5th: par 5 2nd shot into green middle of fairway 190meter= pull hook 2nd shot left,tempo to fast, take unplayable drop out of the only bush where my ball could land chip and put from 50m.

    6th: 330 drive downhil par5 and i make 5...cant remember how.

    The one hole that killed me was the 11th. Par5, 2nd shot closer then 100m on easy pin. left fairway...get te where my ball should be and no-where to be found...made 7...where shouldve been easy 4

    U r still a sand bagger for claiming a 6-cap and shot 74... disappointed

    Our system sucks...It sucks so much it has been revised 3 times in the last year...Course ratings come into play which in my mind shouldnt....our course rating is 69 on some days off a 72.... What must I do if every hole is 10meters shorter....I dont have anything less then 90meter in the bag for my 2nd shots.lol. gets difficult quickly for me.

    Just got back from my Chicago trip.
    Chicago Golf Club - ranked 14 in the country
    Medinah #3 - ranked around 30
    Butler National - ranked around 50

    Unbelievable clubs. A level I have never experienced, and I've played some pretty good places.
    I shot 79, 81, 80. 9 over at each place. Medinah was playing tough with the wind, Butler is just a very difficult layout. Chicago GC was kind of a goat track. Definitely not in my own personal top 20, certainly not top 15 in the US, in my opinion.
    I played really well at Medinah and Butler. Had I been a bit better on the greens, I would have been around 4 over at each. The 2 guys from Cinci who came with me shot over 100 at both places as 10-12 handicaps.

    You did really well to golf those scores at new places. It shows that you have the ability to take your game to any course. I am still working on that ability. I allow new scenery and a lack of distance experience to mess with my mind.
