How did you do?

Posted by mattymp62


As it says in the title, how did all the Mizzy players get on this weekend? I've been reading a few have been struggling, anyone shoot a decent score?

I myself had a bit of a blow up! Fresh from my matchplay win with confidence high, I reached the 17th, which is a short reachable par 4. Green is hidden behind some oak trees and you need to hit a draw around them or go over.

I did a bit of both; went over with a draw but it should have been okay, just left of the green with a short up and down left. A playing partner goes even further left but should be fine. Anyway, we both walked up and find his ball first, mine nowhere to be seen, completey disappeared.

So back to the tee and I end with a double. Holed a nice par saved on 18 though but still gutted as it wasn't the result of a bad shot, I'd guess that someone picked my ball up but you can't see anything until you walk past the trees. Birdie / par finish would have won the medal and got me a 0.3 reduction in hcap :(

Share your good / bad luck stories!

Oh brilliant you start this this weekend - the weekend of our Club Championship

Saturday - 90 - net 8 over (couldn't hit any iron at all and even shanked a chip sideways plus 3 shots OB)

Sunday - 86 - net 4 over (striking much better but missed FOUR putts under 3 feet and got wet a couple of times chasing)

It was windy both days but I played like a muppet. Probably all in my head as usual as my front nines were 41 and 39 respectively.

I had a good patch earlier in the summer but now I'm struggling. I'll give it a rest this week and regroup ready the lads golfing weekend away at the end of the month.

My plan for next season is to lose weight, get fitter, calm down and play better.

I did Fantastic this weekend!!

I mended my hut roof (it had been leaking for ages!)

Sorted my hut out, and got all my tools in their proper place!

Painted the garden fence - a lovely Red Cedar Colour.

Sanded Down and Re-Stained Some of my house windows - they look so much better now.

Cut The Grass.

Trimmed my Fir Trees - man I didn't realise I had so many!!

Still haven't hit a ball in 10 days - and still don't want to!!! I seem to have lost that lovin feelin!!!

Hope it comes back soon - I'm Knackered!! :-)

Im struggling a bit right now. Ive lately been working on fixing some of the flaws with my swing and its getting a lot better, but I still struggle with consistency. You guys know how it is when you make a swing change, it takes a while for it to become natural and its all too easy to fall back into your old, bad habits.
Yesterday I shot a 92 and today I shot a 95. If I could just manage to turn some of those 7s into 5s Id be fine.
Oh well, thats the way it goes sometimes.

Had a strange weekend, front 9 on Saturday I started with a double at the first (pushed tee shot and a 3 putt), but then had a magical run, went birdie, birdie, birdie, birdie, par, birdie, 5 under through 6 holes! then bogeyed 8 (par 3 missed green) and then doubled 9 (lost ball off tee). So was only level par round the front, despite 5 birdies, which is ridiculous. Back 9 was no good, so the round petered out to a 77.

I have a problem with going low, if I am under par I just have to give it back, it is just rubbish. I have shot under par on an 18 hole course twice in my life, but have been in a position to do it on many occasions and just lose my nerve.

On a side note, Deemac, get back out on that course and face your demons. You ARE a single figure handicap golfer, get out there and golf your ball.

.. and above all else, never EVER forget it is just a game. :-)

Not too bad 78 - 8 = 70 and the CSS was 71. Threw away a few shots with a lost ball and a 3 putt on 15 but overall pretty happy given the windy conditions on the last 10 holes.

Cheers DB.

BTW - have you ever read anything by Bob Rotella? He talks at length about this very thing... He calls it "getting in your own way". He notes that after a skien of birdies, our inner sub-conscious tells us that we shouldn't be shooting low because we're just not that good a golfer and then we "get in our own way" by producing a string of poor holes to get our score back to where our sub-conscious tells us it should be.

It's interesting stuff...

Deemac, I started reading a book by Dr Bob, but have not had the time to finish it, I never got to the part you mention.

It sounds very much like what happens to me though, if I have a good front 9 I invariably thrown it away on the back, or if I have a poor front 9 I usually turn it around and have a good back 9 lol. I still shoot my handicap regular enough. The times I have shot low I have somehow managed to get 'in the zone' and have not noticed until after the round, usually during a tough match.

Which Dr Bob book does this appear in? I could do with a dose of this thinking. After reading his book Putting out of your mind, my putting has improved 10 fold without actually increasing practice.

In Dr Bob I believe :)
