I played terribly yesterday except for this hole. That's the first time I birdied that hole in probably 2 years. Perfect drive, perfect 5 wood, and 2 serviceable putts. (For reference I shot a 90, so this is great compared to the rest.)

I beat a plus player and close friend straight up at Lake Nona a couple months back. Had one of those magical rounds and I nearly hole in one from 200 yards out.  He didnt play bad. I just whooped him by a stroke.  Played my hybrid and he hit his 5i.

Of course he was playing from 7300 and I was playing from 6800 but I will never let him live this one down for the rest of our lives.

When I am in trouble from deep, I can always count on my 3 wood. I have hit some miraculous long bombs with that bad boy, just the last weekend I hit my tee shot into the hazard, had 256 to the pin, hit my 3 wood to about 5 feet and the ball mark was right by the hole. I have done this a number of times over the last few months, hit a floater that doesnt go far off the tee only to bomb my 3 wood onto the green. Played in a scramble with some friends, we had 250 out from a tight lie in a ditch area, hit one perfectly between two traps and the ball mark was just a few feet left of the hole. I can buckle down and hit this club when I really need to. I never thought much of it, but my good playing partner brought it up this weekend that "dude guys have a tough time trying to hit a 3 wood off of a tee, and you just hit another one 250+ off the deck." Feels good.

I play a mish-mash of brands and am an avid Arccos user.

I really do drive the ball 330y, and have a 155y PW.. Nobody on the internet believes me but people that see me hit it do :)

I'm 10 yards shorter with my pw than you. Unfortunately I'm about 290 yards shorter than you with driver too FML

If it makes you feel any better, historically I have sucked so bad at chipping and putting I'm still only mid single digits with those numbers on 6300 kind of courses which is embarassing lol.. You would think having a 50 yard shot into every par 4 would make the game pretty easy but it truly hasn't..

Last 2-3 weeks I have finally decided to specifically practice chipping and putting for the first time in my life

about 3-4 years ago - it was a joke among my friends -- if i have a great range session, the round was doomed. if i had s words (won't say it) and couldn't put a good swing on it, i might shoot a personal best lol

I'm not one to brag much about myself, and my golf game certainly doesn't have much to brag about. To keep long story short, I've been golfing off and on for 20ish years with some huge layoffs in between. I have just taken the game back up this year after a 7yr layoff. 7yrs ago I shot consistently in the mid-90s. First time out this year, a 116 :/ Second time was a 105, so an improvement.

Anyway, third round out I lost my swing. My driver I was hitting better than ever, I could not believe it. I hit about 10/14 fairways off the tee. But I literally could not hit my irons. Big shanks right, big hooks left, even a couple whiffs. One hole, after another great drive, I'm in the middle of the fairway, the cart was parallel to the ball, facing me. I swung, the ball went directly right and under the cart, out the other side. By the 9th hole I gave up and just hit driver, then pick up, then play some short stuff around the green.

Not sure what was wrong, I happened to be watching the senior tour at a restaurant (TV right above me). Watching them swing I realized I was all arms, I had no turn at the shoulders or waist.

Went to the range the next day. I even decided to blow up my whole swing: grip, I'd only ever used interlock, I went overlap. Started standing closer to the ball. Changed my weight distribution, used to be more towards heels, now it's more even. Most importantly I made a very conscious effort to turn at the waist and shoulders. Suddenly I was hitting the ball again. Not ever shot was great, but I was making solid contact on every shot. Been to the range since and I seem to be hitting everything very solidly now.

So now my brag: played a par 3 course over the weekend. Par 3s typically have been some of my worst holes in my golf life as I rarely hit GIR. This was a 9 hole course, so par 27. I shot a +5, and that was with a 5 on 1 hole and 6 on the last (terrible tee shot, shanked it right). I hit 6 of 9 GIR, I had 2 birdies, I had 4 pars. Missed 1 other birdie by just the edge of the cup.

It's not much, but I was excited at the way I was hitting the ball.

I played terribly yesterday except for this hole. That's the first time I birdied that hole in probably 2 years. Perfect drive, perfect 5 wood, and 2 serviceable putts. (For reference I shot a 90, so this is great compared to the rest.)

Curious what you use to track your shots like that?

I shot 73 at age 61 last Sunday.  Unfortunately, my 14 year old son shot 67.  Played the 6850 yard tees on the home course, slope 134.

I'm put in mind of a Dilbert Cartoon :)

But more on topic - I won a medal. On count back. Against someone with a 13hcp when I had 26. Does it get better than that?

You beat someone who went round in 13 shots less than you.  And they wonder why golf participation is declining.  Golf must be the only sport in the world where you are incentivised for getting worse.
