Re: Buddy Trip 2019

Felt good for much of today. Had a 42 at the turn, with two doubles, one birdie (chip in). On the back my overall game took a general downturn. Driver problems, some fat mid irons. Ended up with 93. Pretty sure not enough, though I might have moved up a few positions.

Re: Buddy Trip 2019

I made it through, but with less than normal swing or control. Pain got less noticeable as the round went on. Shot 53/47 and I’m 12 strokes back. No jacket for me this year. Heading to the final round, actually elbow feels a lot better than yesterday morning and not as swollen so I’m happy. Gonna be...

Re: Buddy Trip 2019

53 at the turn. The pain was pretty bad at first, but I’m getting used to it. The problem is I guess fear of the shock of impact, I’m not taking a full swipe at it. Fanning slices or weird one handed hooks

Re: I still cannot chip

Seems to have worked it out over the past few days. Instead of warming up on the range or putting, Ive been chipping. Much better. So, I figured out that I was doing a big forward press shaft lean, then hinging, and I think doing both was getting me all out of wack. Starting with a more vertical sha...

Re: Buddy Trip 2019

I shot a 94, which included a quad bogey and quintuple bogey towards the end. I’m 6 strokes off the lead.

However the elbow hurts really bad. Hopefully I can make through.

Re: Buddy Trip 2019

I shot a 43 on my front nine, chipping practice is beneficial. Then things took a turn for the worst. I fucked up my elbow, like tennis elbow or golf elbow. Pretty damn painful. Ended up taking a quintuple bogey on my last hole which screwed me in the handicaps. I was probably in the lead before tha...

Re: Buddy Trip 2019

Playing like shit. Shot a 109 yesterday. The holes I hit GIR, I made par. Holes I had to chip, shot double, triple, quad bogey.

Today I worked 20 minutes before the round on chipping, but only made slight progress. All aspects of my game were bad today. Shot a 101.

Re: Old Ass Clubs

I hope to toss everything in the bag at some point this Summer and get a fitted set. I don't give a shit about the cost. I am officially (via my spouse) on the U.S. Government dole and fully intent to spend every last dime each month. The end of "saving for a rainy day" has come. I thank you all fo...

Re: Buddy Trip 2019

Working on our scorecards for the Ryder Cup weekend matches. I have them computer with the handicap strokes for each course.

This year we are going to the new Top Golf one night for dinner and I’m sure some kind of competition.

Re: I still cannot chip

Re: “Hinge and Hold” - never heard if that until I watched the Phil M videos. Haven’t tried that yet.

But, even in this thread, there’s one method suggested of using wrist hinge, and one suggestion to not hinge.

I still cannot chip

Can’t do it. I have no idea what the correct technique is. I’d say last weekend if I had chipped better it would have taken 10 strokes or so off my score. I either blade them completely over the green, or hit fat and thevdont even make it to the green. I just watched several you tube instruction vid...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

105. Hit the ball pretty well off the tee but inside 100 yards was absolutely awful. I can't make a chip shot at all. Skulling them over the green, etc. It was good practice though for my trip coming up.

Buddy Trip 2019

The annual golf buddy trip is coming up soon. Ryder cup format on the weekend (match play) and three days of hcp stroke play. Same format as previous years. I haven’t swung a club in months, but really looking forward to the trip. This year we have a beach house rented which is named “Del Boca Vista...

Re: recycling

^ Beef - glass is not recycled as much as you think. It is more costly to recycle than to make new glass. So it heads off to the landfill, where it might return to sand in 1 Mil years

Re: recycling

it is sickening the waste we produce. The new sad news is that much of this recycling we combine and send off is either not recycled after all because it is a) contaminated with non-recyclable materials in the batch, or b) not recyclable because it is less costly to mine the resources than to recycl...

Daylight savings time, finally. Going to be hitting the range after work a few times this week. Gotta see where my swing is to get ready for the annual buddy trip to the beach! Same deal as always - rent a big beach house, ryder cup over the weekend, then 3 days hcp stroke play, extreme drinking, a ...
