OK guys, I think I'm going to give this journey thread thing a go.

 

 

I first picked up a club as an early teenager. Should play left handed but learned to hit my cousin's right hand clubs at the time.

I couldn't hit a ball left handed if I tried these days!

After a year or two of playing back then I gave it up and didn't pick up a club for nearly 15 years.

I've now been playing the game on a weekly basis for the last 12 years.

 

2013 was a tough year on course for me.

I started out the year at 10.1.

By May I managed to get down to 9.4

I finished the year at 13.0

 

After May pretty much went 6 months without playing to handicap.

Now I play every weekend, often both days.

That's a lot of rounds in row that I stunk it up.

 

I'm really hoping 2014 sees me get back down to at least 10.

Single figures is obviously the goal, but realistically I don't practice enough during the week to maintain that kind of 'cap.

My weekday evenings are usually spent at the gym or playing tennis and I don't want to change that (heart disease runs in the family and I'm turning 41 this year).

 

I've got off to a reasonable start to this year on the course though.

I played a few rounds last week at Sandy off the blues during my annual leave.

Among those rounds was a 77 and 78 off the stick, so there's some light at the end of the tunnel.

 

I'm hoping that by keeping an honest journal of my rounds here and bouncing off ideas from some of the heads I can turn it around this year and get that 'cap back down into A grade.

 

Here's my current stats via my Golfshot app to give you an idea of where my game is currently at:

 

FIR - 47% (misses are 24% left and 29% right)

 

GIR - 35% (no where near good enough)

 

PUTTS - 1.85 per hole (have reasonable success in getting up and down from greenside)

 

PUTTS per GIR - 2.02 ( this is ****. Nothing worse than 3 putt bogeys)

 

SCORING ON ALL HOLES:

Eagle - 0% (only ever had one in my life)

Birdies - 6% (must improve this markedly)

Pars - 38%

Bogies - 38% 

Double or worse - 19% (no where near good enough. Must stop the blowout holes)

 

OK, bring on 2014!

Cool, look forward to following your journey.

Where do you miss most of your greens?

Quite a common mistake is under clubbing.

Thanks Maxx,

Most of my green misses are generally directional rather than short.

Funnily enough, I have always considered my short irons a strength of my game, but evidently stats are showing otherwise.

My home course is quite short, if you hit driver or 3W well off the tee, you generally have no more than 8 iron in.

On a lot of holes it can be only a wedge.

 

My driving can be erratic too, this means I'll often have to bunt out from the ****, so a GIR is out of the question.

I don't think weather conditions helped much in the second half of last year..do you think that could have played a small part?
