You could have warned me beforehand that was your plan! ;)


Apologies

What's your excuse for going from 41 to not making 30?

Played McLeod yesterday off 14. Giving myself triples for wipes I finished 16 over for 34 points.

1 birdie 5 pars 9 bogies 1 double 2 wipes

3/13 fairways + 5 others were in play and dine. Dropped 3 shots off the tee, 2 with driver and 1 with a 3 hybrid. Started off pulling left and finished the day pushing right! Not hugely offline but found some trees.

3 GIR - the rest of the full swing game cost me 6 shots and also dropped 1 from punching into a tree from an errant drive (had plenty of space to go tbrough). Hit an 8 iron what must have been 170m plus into the wind to go OOB behind the green on 8; no idea how that happens but such is golf! Mishit some shots with irons and wedges from good positions and off the tee on par 3s. Wasn't dialled in like I need to be.

5/13 up and downs- gave myself 4 shots dropped here as the others were after the abovementioned poor approach shots. Not a bad day around the greens with Texas and chipping. Birdie was after a high chip over a bunker which is always a fear shot for me.

30 putts - putting on the other hand was a very mixed bag. Only 1 3 putt from long range so that was good, but missed some very makeable putts too. Dropped 3 shots here but also dropped a few long ones too including 18ft birdie on 3, and 20ft on 7 for par. Very mixed bag.

Overall I flagged and held my cap steady. I'm ready for things to click though.

3/13 fir is a standout and then highlights the 3 gir.

The penny will drop sooner or later !

 

Question Weetie, how high do you hit the driver, your normal trajectory compared to other players ?

 

I know that you can get the ball to move either way, mostly when you don't want it to but where is your normal miss, right more than not ?

 

Interested to find you a means of getting the same shape more often than not, might need an up-dated vid of your driver swing to work on, please.

Jon...

Medium to low I'd say

More misses right in the past - haven't been playing with the latest change for long enough to say how it is at the moment

That's not just driver - all clubs are the same

If you think that the 3 GIR is primarily driven by driver problems you're very mistaken - I have a swing issue not a driver issue

I'll see what I can do about some videos

Not getting up and down 8 times isn't that great either, all A graders should be converting a lot more of than that.

Think back to Jon's stats the other week, how many up and downs did he need to have after hitting all of the fairways he did?!?
Can you remember? Because I can't, all I know is that when you hit all the fairways it should naturally convert to hitting greens and getting up and down and playing to close to your handicap.

Definitely. I feel that the GIRs are hurting me more than the missed FIRs. On Sunday the dropped shots came more from poor iron and wedge shots. The tee shot that cost me on 5 was a hybrid. The punch that hit a tree can be traced directly to the pushed drive, but I missed so many straightforward approaches.

6i 45m short on 2
Fat SW on 4
Fat 9i off the tee on 6
6i hooked into the trees on 7
8i OOB on 8 although that was after my drive went wet left - pull not hook that time
Pushed 5i off the tee on 11 left an appproach I had to play safe with leaving a looong putt
Huge pushed 6i on 17 leaving a long bunker shot

Between those and my missed 4/5 foot putts I've dropped 10 shots

Social hit at Meadowbrook 10-27 today with Bubs dad. Still a bit wayward - still mostly right - but straightened things up a bit on the back nine. 44 front and 42 back for 14 over off 11.

Hit some monster drives with the wind on very firm fairways, including a 284 a 280 and a 306. Had PW into 2 of the par 5s for second shot for a birdie and a par.

The wind was a real factor today and the greens and fairways were pretty firm; it's drying out fast up here and the fairways were patchy whereas 2 weeks ago they were pretty good.

Not too unhappy overall. Will post some stats a bit later.

Only a par with wedge in on a par 5. I think I can see your troubles

Wind was blowing a gale on that one and between that and the hard green my PW went 160m over the back.

Was happy to make the par - texas bounced off something and then putt to the flag broke about 8 feet left to right. Made the putt back up the hill from 4 feet.

But yeah - fair call

1 birdie 4 pars 11 bogies 2 doubles

6/14 fairways - no dropped shots from the tee although did find some trees but had shots

4 GIR - also had 6 others with Texas for next shot although a couple of them were from bad misses and hard go get close. Dropped 2 shots from irons and 1 from a thin AW into a tree

1/20 up and downs - pretty appalling. Took lob wedge when I normally wouldn't and didn't get any of them down and 1 was a bad mishit and another got under it badly. Dropped 11 shots here. Disappointing.

32 putts + 10 Texas - only 1 3 putt but should have scored much better - much better. Greens were slowish but can't blame them. Grass around the greens was very variable and I didn't handle it well. But I also missed some very gettable putts.

Overall it wasn't too bad and the good thing was I started to get my setup better for my swing. Last hole was a 306m drive straight where I aimed it. The PW after was a draw that blew well right and rolled through the green but was struck decently - just a little closed.
