Thanks.nice shot, Im happy any time I hit a par 3 green as im horrible on them this year, let alone inches away from a hole in one....keep it up!
I actually did that my last round and shot a 90.This is a great thread! I have only broken 100 three times in the past year so following your posts are fun. I'm going to have to try the "every hole is a par 5" system. That just seems like a good idea for the way I try to play. Also, I think I have read every book that people have suggested you read. Pelz has some good ideas and I have had some success with his 1/2 and 3/4 swing suggestions, but Ben Hogan's 5 lessons.....there is no way I will every have enough talent to hit a ball like that man could! Hit em well, and I will be following your posts.
the all Par 5 mentality is what I will take on next league play. I will need to consistently shoot low to mid 90's to keep my lead. I think that should be enough unless people start shooting really good. currently, I'm sitting on a 23.4 handicap for our next league play.I actually did that my last round and shot a 90.
Don't know if that was the reason but that was the approach I took.
When I parred two of the Par 3's, it felt like eagles.
Shot a 43 on the front and kinda fell apart for 2 holes on the back that led to a 47.
awesome! congrats on shooting under 100. always fun to shoot well.Great to hear about everyones success. I'm going out Sunday to play a course I've never played before. I'll have my GPS in hand to help with distances which has seemed to be my problem. Good course management my last round helped me shoot under 100 on a pretty tough course.
Tapatalkin' this mutha.
awesome! congrats on shooting under 100. always fun to shoot well.
I had my very first uh oh with my GolfBuddy. my last course, the GolfBuddy was 30-50 yards off on some of the holes. good thing my brother had his iPhone. at one of the Par 3's, GolfBuddy said it was 200 yards while the card said about 160 yards. my bro's phone and a friend's Bushnell both had the right yardage. so, now I will be on the market for a Bushnell for back up.
Damn ope that's a bummer. Did you even bring your clubs with you?I have been in Florida on business all week and wanting to try the "every hole is a par 5" idea. I thought I would get in a least one round after work if not two this week. Not to be. Rain every afternoon. Heading home tomorrow without a single round played. Bummer. Had to drink beer and watch it rain out over the ocean from my balcony instead. Oh, well maybe this weekend will be dry at home.
Nice looking course MD, I love my MX-300's and I am sure you will love the 1000's pretty soon, and that Ghost is looking good in the pic.had a chance to go out to The Majestic at Lake Walden course and had a blast with my two bros. we were able to play a total of 16 or 17 holes. played 19 to 27th holes and 1-5, 8-9, and 16th. used the MX 1000 for this round coz I'm planning to use them on our next league play so I'm trying to get used to them. I had trouble with my tee shots all day. found the fairways but were really short. it felt like I was trying to lift the ball. I was a good 20-40 yards short of my usual 220-240 drives. it'll take a little time to get used to the MX 1000 at the course. I've been hitting them pretty well at the range but I knew the real test was gonna be at the course. by the second nine, I was getting more comfortable with them. I finished with 4 Pars to end the round so that was something to take home. we plan on going out this week again and I'm sticking with the MX 1000.
That it is my friend, but isn't it fun. My putting has been in the 33 to 36 range everytime out lately, need a few more to fall to help get the scores back down. I know we both will continue to work hard, I am heading to the course in a few minutes to get in a chipping and putting session today.I shot a 101 yesterday. Putting was awful, I easily should have shot a 95. But due to a few drop shots and missed 4-5 footers I couldn't. THis game is a biatch isn't it.
Well let us know how that goes. I spent about an hour on the putting greens after my round to try and figure out what was wrong. The past few rounds I've tried a new putting grip and some days it works other days it dosen't. It's one of those grips you can't be lazy withThat it is my friend, but isn't it fun.

I'll be pulling for you buddy, just pay close attention to your course management and you will do great.Well I'm heading back on to play another tough course on Sunday. Doing well on these tough courses helps boost my confidence and my handicap. I shot a 99 last time I played this course, lets hope I can shoot lower.
Awesome stuff - keep it up!I finally got to try out the "every hole is a par 5" mindset last week. I was doing really well with it until hole 5. Then things started slipping away a bit. Finished the front 9 at 5 over for a real world 50. This was my best score ever for these 9 holes on a course that had really kicked my butt in the past. Had a rain delay for about an hour after nine so I was able to reset my mind and try again on the back nine. Shot a 2 over for a real world 47 on the back nine. This tied my best nine hole score ever. Ended up with a real world 97. This is only the fourth time in my brief golfing career that I have broken 100 so I will take the 97. From my results I can't say for sure that using the "every hole is a par 5" helped me, but I think it did. My thanks to whoever was the first to suggest this. I will be using this mindset for the foreseeable future.
