Week 52 Update
Welcome Players! Read below for the Week 52 Update.
Not the most impressive final week, but hey, one range and one round, that’s still a decent week!
Resistance Train (Gym): 2
Conditioning (Road Bike): 1
I got out for a 14 mile bike ride this week! It was amazing to be on the bike again, but judging how my SIJ felt afterwards I was probably a tad bit aggressive and should not have been out there. A bitter-sweet realization.
To be honest going into this range sesh I thought it was going to be like, my best practice ever.
It was a good one, felt good to just swing loose and get prepared for the next days round, but trust me when I say there were plenty of terrible shots in here too.
Not a bad way to end the year!
This was one of my cleanest rounds to date, and extremely fitting that I addressed 1.5 of my 3 worst scoring limiters.
I hit 57% fairways (but only 4 GIR’s)
I didn’t lose a SINGLE BALL to OB/Penalty
I did have 4 three-putts
I ended up in a green side bunker 6 times, but got up and down for par on one of them!
It definitely felt great to be in play the whole time, and although I did have some bunker trouble it wasn’t nearly as much of a problem as going OB would have been. A few too many 3-putts can be assigned to my lack of putting practice this week, and overall just had a very good day on the tee box.
I wasn’t hitting greens and didn’t pitch well, especially from the 80-110yd distances, but would have knocked off a few strokes there. That was the difference for both my sub-90 rounds is I was money from close range.
The best part about this final round wasn’t the score or how I played, it was who I played it with.
I got to play with my dad, who was a huge part in the start of Project Par in the first place, as well as one of my best friends who I played my first round of the year with to kick off the project!
Golf is a special game and I’ve loved committing myself toward improving over the last year. All in all I’d say it was an absolute success. A 95 to end the year isn’t so bad considering where I started!
