    Louis's while yes, it was amazing, and he put it in the exact right spot, and then it funneled right down. But Bubba executed a perfect shot, for a tight spot, and put the major away with that shot.

     
    Louis did the "Perfect" shot.
    Bubba curved a fuckin' nice hook.

    why is that? just curious..

    a RH golfer could have sliced that ball.. no?

    being a lefty myself I like watching the few PGA LH players leading the pack.

     I'm starting to enjoy golf again but still incredibly frustrating. Got my first bogie in years today. Stoked!

     Played for the first time in over a year this weekend with my brother and Dad.

    I personally lost over 10 balls...in 9 holes lulz.

    My short game is awful.

    Cause it had to go low. Low slices that are controlled are pretty hard to hit.

     Oh and I've been golfing at my work lately. It is a nice course. Too bad I can't take any friends out :( Shot 74, 74, and 73 the last few saturday's.

     One thing about my course is they don't really care. After 8 the course closes and you can play. It's at least 5 holes. Regular hours though, I've been there for 5 years though and everyone now knows that if they have to be bribed I brew beer.

    My swing is in the toilet right now but I am shooting some of my best scores.
    Last two rounds:
    2-man shamble. Hit 4 GIR. Somehow shot a 75.
    Red-White-Blue. Hit 6 GIR. Shot 76 with a triple bogey.

    My short game is amazing right now, that is the only reason I'm scoring.
    Getting a lesson this weekend.

     holy chip'n putt master!

    well played duhg.

    I shot an awful 54 on my 1st 9hole of the season.. to my defense I hadn't taken a swing since september. many 3putts. Many overshoots. Many miss hits..

    The lesson went well.

    The bad news:
    My ball position was too far forward.
    I was lifting my head on the back swing.
    I was collapsing my left arm on the back swing.
    I was casting/flipping.
    I was coming OTT.
    I was decelerating into the ball.
    (Gee, is that all?)

    The good news:
    It was all related to my backswing being too long. Once we shortened it up, I was ripping into the ball and hitting nice tight fades.
    Now I can't wait to get back on the course.

     Shot 46 on 9 at the Virginia Tech golf course this weekend. Played with rental clubs (Driver, 3W, 4i, 6i, 8i, PW, Putter only), and I played in Sperry's. Had a huge fucking blister on my foot after 6. And the Driver was a steel shafted Taylormade probably from the 80s. Edit: having my own clubs with me would've made things much different but I was there on business.

    Good news is I feel like my swing is getting much better. Probably could (and should) be in the mid to low 80s by the end of the summer. Also, switched from shit DT-Solos to Bridgestone B-330s thanks to real paychecks (still can't justify V1/V1x). High quality ball definitely makes a world of a difference.

    And I'm not afraid to admit it, but I lurvs Rickie Fowler....

    Holy shit did the instructor tell you about all of that?? Most people over swing. It's about solid contact first, then clubhead speed. Not taking a huge rip at it and not hitting it square.  

    I've been playing once a week. Decent but not great. Feels like it could be better. Shot 77 at a par 68 this weekend. Had some tree trouble just off the fairway. But came up 1" short on 4 birdie putts. So pissed! the greens were slow but you think I would have learned...

    Just accepted an 8 hour a week volunteer job at Nicklaus North here in Whistler. It's only 12-4 Saturday and Sundays and I can play as many rounds as I want Monday through Thursday every week. Pretty stoked to be able to finally start golfing regularly again.

    Played my first 9 of the season today. Shot a 44 but started the round out with fireworks. First drive on hole #1 was shit so pulled another ball out for the 1st hole mulligan and drove a 316 yard hole to about 10 feet from the pin. Played way better than I was expecting to first round out. May have to be playing more this summer

     Dudes who can hit 300+ should definetly play more.. you'z got weapons to crush courses.

    I hit 175-180 yards with a 5iron.. it pisses me OFF a little everytime I see a friend carry 200+ onto the green on a par 5 with an iron in his hands when I'm playing it safe and aiming 100yards in front..

     Holy shit what a week! The dream trip happened this week with my Dad and bro. We flew to Scotland and have been in St. Andrews since Sunday. Played the new course Monday morning (built in 1895!), the old course in the afternoon. We played Carnoustie yesterday and just played Kingsbarns today! Sunny and hardly any wind everyday. We're playing jubilee at 7:04 tomorrow morning then sprinting to the airport. Unfuckingbelievable

    I played in a scramble on Friday and a pro was there offering a video lesson based upon your swing on the par 3 10th.
    I hit a 6-iron to within 3 feet. If it had kept rolling it would have gone in the cup. I thought it was a decent swing until I got John's analysis.

     Decided it was a good idea to get off work at 8am and then go walk 27 holes and drink 20+ beers. Not one of my finest choices. Did get a few more bogies though and played fairly well off and on. Found 8 golf balls before I even got on the fairway of the first whole of the day.

    Neat duhg.
    Good lesson. Video lessons are very effective.

    I played 18 yesterday. Was really too exhausted to play. Worked over 50 hours this week and 5 right before golfing and walked. Shot a 80. Wasn't great.

    And yodel dude that trip sounds incredible, a dream trip for any golfer!

    cool video dugh. I think I could take pointers from that too. OUT of curiosity, how long was your 6 iron shot? 180ish?  

    ..I sinked a 50 yards sw approach friday. For the Eagle. It felt awesome.

    Saturday was teh buisness tournement. it was RAINY. Still good times. I've played 45holes this season. Looking foward to get OUT more often as my swing is pretty good and I've been hitting good shots.

    Yep. 6i is my 180 club.
    It's been going about 170 lately, largely due to the OTT move.

     last saturday we had a Stag Party for my friend's up-coming wedding.

    My game started good. Really good. 5 pars in a row.. finally shot 42 on the front 9.

    thenm as my 750ml bottle of red label was goin' down. Things got a bit more scketchy.. shot 49 on the back. Last 5holes we went on a mission to empty the bottle. We succeded. Drunk golfing can be fun, as long as you dgaf abOUT the score on the card.

    My game is finally starting to come back after 5 years of not swinging a club. Been shooting mid 80's the last couple of rounds but could easily knock it down to high 70's if I can get my short game working again. I've been crushing my drives and my putting has finally came back to me. Been sinking a lot of one putts and most of my two putts are the result of leaving long putts short a couple inches leaving me a tap in. My short game inside 50 yards has been terrible though. I plan on spending an hour or so on the range and hitting onto the practice green before I head out for my round this afternoon to try and get things working a bit better. I've been playing so far wearing Nike sb's with a flat sole and next to no grip left to them, especially in wet grass so that is definitely not helping things. Thinking of picking up a pair of the TW 13's in the next week or so. Love Nike Free's and am really to try the TW's out. I also need to pull the trigger and get some new clubs but I'm undecided right now on what I'm going to grab as an iron set. Leaning towards Titleist AP2's at the moment.

     I grew up on a golf course and worked at it for 3 and 1/2 years, always saw wasted people golfing, never understood it. That was, until I realized that on a nice day with a bunch of friends (and yes, not gaf about the score) it is soo much fun. Hoping I can get out for a round soon myself, haven't played since Feb in California.

     I like the game enough to "care" abOUT my score and try to play the best game possible within my abilities. So for these times where the score matters, to me, or in a friendly competition, I stay sober.. (not drunk, ppp)

    It was my 1st time drinking well over 6beers.. we laughed alot, great times.

    My dad was able to get me a pass to the AT&T a few years back, so I got to go and watch Tiger play. It's fucking awesome. I actually like watching golf on TV, but it was so much fun to go watch. When the weather's nice, it's so mellow walking hole to hole, but then watching the action is pretty exciting. You'll have a blast.
