Unfortunately didn’t get out and play as much as I would have liked this week, but I did play well.  I hit the ball great off the tee this week, 9 of 14 FW’s and a few were barely in the rough, that is the first time I have gotten a stat for the week ABOVE a PGA Tour Average so that feels nice.  I know that driving the ball well is essential to getting down to scratch, driving it well gives you so many more opportunities to score and take advantage of holes rather than playing defensive after a poor tee shot.  I hope I can keep up the driving, been hitting it well on the range this week too,so I’m confident I can carry it into next weeks rounds.

My putting really hurt me this week and I think I’m going to test out a few different set ups and grips this next week and see if anything helps.  From looking in the mirror, I’ve noticed that I set up pretty open with my shoulders, so I’ve been experimenting with ways to square them up and get that feeling down, that might help me with a more consistent and correct stroke, so we’ll see this coming week if that helps at all with the shorter putts.

    I agree, hitting fairways is really a key, as it increasing number of putts made inside 10 feet. Something that has helped my putting stroke is standing more upright and letting arms hang down to putter, this seems to promote a more natural pendulum motion. When I get more hunched over it tends to increase my wrist action, leading to more pushes and pulls.
