Range session this arvo, little frustrating started out ok with the irons then moved onto 3w and driver and I was topping and cutting the ball. Eventually worked out I was trying to hit the ball too hard steepening the club and coming down too steep taking big divots that went left. Backed off slowed the tempo down and bang straight as an arrow with 3w irons with a little draw.........sweet

 

Got home and my Game Golf device was waiting for me in the mail!! bring on Saturday

Second round club champs, wasn't a great ball striking day but it wasn't the worst either. Short game was pretty solid which was pleasing the practice I've been putting in is paying off.

Started the day 3 shots off the pace  and got off to a good steady start nothing flashy until the 4th  found myself 100m out hit gap wedge too 5 feet and made the put to go 1 under. Would have been same score after 9 but for a 12 footer lipping out for par on the 8th. So square with the card after 9.

Back 9 ball striking went off a little, still managed to navigate my way round ok. made 4 bogeys on the way in (including last two holes!). So finished with a new PB 73/9/64 to now lead by 3 shots going into the last round.

 

27 putts

33% GIR

75% FIR

50% Scramble

 

So a solid week of practice and see how we go.

Big weekend of golf: Sat last round club champs, 3 shot lead and top 3 played together. Started really well to be square with the card after 4 (just missed eagle on 3) then disaster struck blasted tee shot on 5 OOB and made a quad! So 3 shot lead turned into a 1 shot behind. Back on track over the next few holes then double on the 9th! Back nine was pretty standard apart from the dirty big hossel rocket on 14 which led to another double. So ended up 4th five shots back. Ball striking apart from a hand full of shots was ok short game was off a little with putts just coming up short all day unlike last week when everything went in.

 

81/9/72

30 putts

50% FIR

28%GIR

38% Up & Down

 

Sunday was first rd of pennant (been promoted to Div 3) @ Portarlington

 

Once again ball striking was good most of the day unfortunately my shot game come well short of what was needed, especially my bunker play. Spent most of the day 1 up - 1 down but missed some crucial putts late in the rd to go down 4/3

 

played the last 3 holes and shot 86/9/77

 

8 pars

6 bogies

4 doubles

 

31 putts

Posted 15 April 2017 - 09:22 AM

So on a whim ive decided I want a new set of irons! More of a players set this time, so started looking at different sets like Ping i200, mizuno jpx 900 forged, mp 25 etc. Booked a fitting for last night at Albert Park with Fergie and walked out leaning towards an iron I would never thought I could hit! Titleist CB 716 ..............wow ........wow..... :mellow:

Basically the ball flight with my rsi 1s is too low(its a distance iron so) but with my spin rate 8000 rpm(7 iron) a little too high but ha the ball just flew nice and high but strong. I think the dissent angle was around 50 deg so stopping the ball will be a sinch......I think. Was the best dispersion pattern also. The other irons were all good except for the Cobra which I couldn't get on with but the CB 716 was just tighter and it just felt soooooooo nice of the face.

Now just got to figure out im going to pay for them :D

Par yesterday finished 2 up (75/9/66)  played to 9.1 (9 > 8.8)

Off the tee was good only 2 missed FIR 58%

Irons were a little off heavy and left GIR 28%

Putts 28

Scrambling good 62%

 

Irons could be explained by my lie angle being out by 3 deg (flat)

And now you have that in your mind ...

 

Bite the bullet. Order the CB 716's.

 

As a matter of interest, what shaft spec's has the club fitter recommended for you?

Picked up the new bats last night, bent them 2 1/2 deg flat with the new golf pride grip that's thicker at the bottom or doesn't taper .......feel nice. Fergie also gave me a couple of tips while I was hitting/sorting out lie angle. I was still over drawing the ball all be it with that nice high ball flight!! anyway my hands were going back too far out side  and causing me too get flat then coming back down way inside (been hooking driver this would explain why) So trying to keep hands closer in the take away then at about hip high fold the arms up. Seemed to straighten out shots anyway even nailed a few drivers! Also bent my current wedges to suit the new clubs lofts.

Well a little tired and emotional today after celebrating hard last night, played and won in our local Div5 pennant final yesterday at Geelong GC 5&2. The last two weeks of practice round there paid off, won my match on the 19th sinking a 12 foot putt. Was 2 down a couple of times during the day but managed to claw my way back but not actually get in front till the last hole. A little frustrating I didn't play as well as I have been the last week or so, my short game disappeared in fact that last putt was the only one of any length at all. But my irons were solid all day(loving the nice high ball flight) and wasn't terrible off the tee. Pitching was good but couldn't get the ball too the hole on the greens with the flat stick.

I managed to keep my nerve over the closing holes and hit some good shots even when my opponent had more than his fare share of luck! And then out of no where he started shanking his irons, so I guess the pressure got to him a little in the end.

Anyway looking forward to playing some comp rounds now see you at the Sands!

Home club open on the weekend which I hadn't planned on playing, but was asked to be emergency so threw clubs in and went down to help out. Anyway just got in from placing NP markers out and was told your playing.........good what group.........first get on the tee!!   Needless to say I didn't play real well.

Shot a 42/39 81/9/72 and 41/4.5/36.5 

 

On aside note the last nine 4 of the tees were changed to the womans tees bringing a couple of them into range. Made for a bit of fun, The 4th was a 275m par 4 twith a tail wind. Playing partners hit off and one of them hit to 6 feet!! (misses hit putt) Hit my first out over the road oob! Second ball nailed it and left it on the fringe, and made the putt. High 5s were thrown around for the eagle ................hang on it's only a par!! :D still no eagle.
