Yesterday was my best round ever, but ironically not my lowest round. Played Vistoso, which on its own can be somewhat challenging but considering it was a 1-2 club wind (sometimes more) all day, my 77 with 7 birdies was pretty phenomenal. This was with 2 doubles and a triple bogey as well.
The one thing that stood out actually was just my overall club striking and putting. I was reading the latest fire issue of Golf magazine and they mentioned the 3 different types of power moves, either glider, spinner or launcher, and after doing the little tests they had I found out I am a launcher. So I go to play in our men's club event which is also my first round of our match play event. I get to the range early to practice and focus on using this power move and am achieving really good, consistent results. Okay, lets see how it takes to the course. First hole is a 345 yard hole, I blast driver and have 50 yards to a front pin and almost hole out from there and it just took off from that point.
I had to be careful though with this move because there were a few times that my upper body would move ahead of the ball leading to some pushes (ergo the doubles and a triple). My putting though was key! I was deadly inside of 10 ft and even made a couple birdies in the 20-30 ft range. The highlight of the whole thing was I found a Taylormade Project A ball and I gotta say, I think I found a new ball lol. I played the last 6 holes with it and birdied 3 of them!
