    Played another 18 yesterday at Frear park in troy. Not one of my best rounds. struggled to find the lines when putting, couldn't get off the tee with any consistency. Led me to a conclusion that there is a change needed at the top end of the bag. Mizuno ST190G as long and low spinning as it is, has not been the fairway finder that i need. It's replacement has been ordered and i should see that later this week. 8.5* TS3 (turned down to 7.75*) will be taking its place and the Mizuno is for sale. Trying to sell it with the Tensei Pro Orange 70Tx... if anyones interested.....

    I've had some issues I've been dealing with of late. JUST got the Atmos black 8TX in the TS3 and took it for its maiden voyage at Hiland up in Queensbury. 6750ish from tips, par 72. Went 39/37 for a 76. A couple absolute bombs off the tee with the new setup. The 9th and 18th are both 540yd par5's and 17 is a 465yd par4. On 17 I had 124yds to the pin. On 18 I had 193 left to the pin and the 9th, I missed it a bit high on the face and had 248 left to the stick. Hit the green on 17 and 18 and was just pin high left on 9.

    Hiland is my home course. It's not a terribly difficult course, but there are definitely some trouble spots you can get yourself into. 248 out on 9 & you went for it in 2? Most wouldn't have the guts for that shot. Glad to hear that you did. I'm headed there now to try out the 410LST animal style. Did you have your own 4, or did they pair you up with somebody? How did you do on 2, 5 ,& 7?

    We had a 4some already set. I was low man in the group with the 76. My buddy with an 86 then his dad and friend both posted 94's. Bogey on 2, bogey on 5, par on 7. On 2, I pulled drive left and was blocked out by trees. Hit a punch back into fairway, pitched one just short. Chipped close and 1 putted. On 5 I hit a perfect 3i off the tee. Had 99yds to the pin and got steep on a wedge left it just short right. Fluffed a pitch shot then hit a chip to a foot and tapped in. On 7 I hit driver into rough on the right stopping just short of the pond between 7 and 4. Hit a 7iron layup to about 80 yds. Hit a wedge that landed pin high, bounced hard and over the green. Chipped to a couple feet and rolled in the par.
    9 being 248 out, slightly uphill laser said playing 254. Hit a sweeping draw 3w that just turned a hair too much and rolled through the bunker into the rough pin high left. Chipped on to about 6 foot and lipped the birdie putt. Tap in par.

    Yeah the shot into the greens on. 2,5, &7 have to be played a certain way or it's disaster for anyone without a rock solid short game.
