to all that have qualified. As for the rest of us still trying to
figure this program out it may do us well to look at the leader strong
1. The closest to the pin competitions; many of the US Open leaders have posted most of the very low scores( very
early) with an average distance to the pin between 5+ and 6+ feet. This
tells me its just like real golf 75% of your game is the short game. it
seems to me that they have honed their short game skills (150 yards and less)
to the mm so they have many tap in pars and birdies. (drive for show /
putt, pitch and chip for dough!)
As for the rest of us that still play well but not good enough,
perhaps we could do a little "brainstorming" and open a new blog on
what has really worked well for you in driving, putting, chipping ect
ect. and share this info on the blog for all to try.
As an example I went to the adjacent fairway on # 1 and landed 155
yards to the hole. 2nd shot was 2 feet away, 1 putt birdie. The next
day I tried it again and the WGT had already made it out of bounds!!
Another example is: when on tee # 5 (14 mph wind slightly L-R ) I drag the target way left and then slice the ball to get more use of the wind and I come also on the fairway, where prior I was often in the "deep weeds or sand trap"
The idea is that we may be able to help one of us qualify for the US Open and help others play better at the same time.
Suggestions and tips should be short and to the point.
Yes I would like to play with the leaders one day, I am GMT +1hour.
Its not how to play better- its why you don't!! (or why I don't!!)
