What did you score on that 9? Probably like 33 or something right?

 

If I did that I'd have played again.  Promptly!

Anyone here play still?

What’s in your bag?

Just ordered my set of Ping G425 irons, should be here mid-May. Can’t believe how long they’re still taking.


Hope to play more this year. Last year was a down year for me. Got out maybe 5 times.

Glad to hear you’re loving it. Doing the lessons is a huge help, and the same price as a round of golf. It’s the right thing to do when getting started.

If you’re breaking 100, you are doing better than 85% of golfers. You’re full swings are probably decent. Get out to a chipping/putting green and dial in the short game. Easier said than done. I can’t chip worth a damn. But it’s definitely the key to breaking 90… which I’ve done exactly once ever (88).

Full swings are solid off the tee and 7-iron and up. Six and below, not so much, including hybrids/woods off the deck. Really struggle getting above 165 off the deck with any consistency. Chipping is great, putting slightly below average. I just need to get better with my 4/5 iron. That's been my focus for a couple months now. 

 

Congrats on your sub-90, hard to even fathom that.

I struggle with the longer irons too. Don’t even carry a 4-iron. Use a 4 hybrid. The best tip I remember about those are that we inherently try to help the ball in the air with the long clubs, but it’s important to hit down on the ball still. Ball a titch forward in your stance from the middle. Only time I hit them flush, is if I get my hips through a little earlier than usual.

Funny I know what works, but can’t execute it consistently to save my life.

I have. Played 2-3 times a week all summer and fall. In the winter have been getting lessons at this indoor sim place in NoVa. Been playing for about 9 months now and I’m pretty consistently breaking 100. Just love it. Never had so much fun sucking so badly at something, lol.

 

I've played 4 rounds since this post. My scores: 123, 117, 110, 114. 

 

As Lee Corso would say...

Golf is insane. Gotta love it.

Let's get a BSL 4-some (or more) going, could be cute. 

 

We should do this before Randall heads to St. Louis.

Already out here my friend. Appreciate you thinking of me though.
