Golf is so great but so frustrating. -10 thru 16 in round 3, and two slow iron/wedge swings lead to a bogey-bogey finish. -8 for round 3. -30 overall. Won’t be playing round 4 today, tempo isn’t feeling so smooth.
The frustration continues. -36 with 9 holes to go. Triple bogey aids in a +2 back nine ruining a shot at top 25. -34 is definitely improvement though. I think I have a shot at competing for promo marks now that my red mark is gone. Well, the season is almost over so maybe not for too long.
Played round 1 at Portrush, -3 only. This course isn’t too bad if I can get the perfect-perfect down with the irons. Unfortunately I missed too many greens.
Also still learning how flops work... had perfect-fast pitching wedge flop at like 60-65% land at 43 yards, when perfect-perfect in 100% should land 42...
Yeah..sadly flop shots flies really too much. And depending on green's firmness and slopes the ball can run a LOT too much. Is something hb really should to fix. I'm pretty curious about this week's course. I have some difficulty to play well links. But I tested this course some week ago and I like it. Good luck for the tournament

I somehow overcame FOUR very-fast downswings on the front nine to shoot -2, and finished the round at -6. Two eagles in there! I’m feeling fine sitting at -9 these winds are crazy and I’m struggling with tempo once again.
-5 to finish at -15. Seems likely to be good enough to avoid a demotion mark. Course (Portrush) constricted nicely, just not my cup of tea. Never a flat shot from the fairway, pins on the edge of false fronts/sides.
Didn’t post here last week, but received my first promo mark at -30 and first made cut on TST also! This week madden comes out Friday so trying to finish up my rounds before then.
Played the first two of CC-C and shot -4 on all four nines lol, sitting at -16 thru 2 (bogey free). Might be in play for another promo mark we shall see.
Played the first two of TST also and ugh! I had a personal best -5 in round 1 even with 3 bogies! And then plopped my first shot in round 2 in the water. And then two more in the water on hole 4 (to card a 9 on the 17th handicap hole!). Settled down after that and finished the round at E. So, -5 at the cut and not sure I’ll make it.
Since there’s no CC-C season 6 thread yet, I’ll post here, which I haven’t done in a while.
I the off-season I made the switch to using my right thumb/right stick, which took a bit of getting used to but I think I’m back to about the level I was before.
Nervous in round 1 of the CC-C event for whatever reason, but shook off the nerves somehow after starting +1 thru the first couple holes to a -10 finish (2 eagles helped). Looking forward to competing for a win each week as I try to move up the ranks.
Think I’ll make a donation soon, as I’ve been feeling extra guilty lately about getting so much fun out of this community for free (and when the game I also got for free).

SwAeromotion: I wouldn't do my fellow XBox TGCTours members like that to ask for Master back on the main tours. Maybe TST, but even there I dunno. The gap in skill from top to bottom on TST is very wide. Agreed that once we get the next game comes we can discuss.

9ironanon: Tiger 23 will come out in August and we can have that argument then.

9ironanon: And we stop duck hooking sh%$ into the water, and I am thankful for that.

9ironanon: Yeah I can see this coming for calls from the userbase to go back to Master. Please no. CC-D is still as dead as it was last season. Change is too little too late. We deal. We adapt. We move on and We get used to it.

SwAeromotion: I mean.. HB doesn't do things at all according to TGCTours' schedule, but I get the frustration.

9ironanon: lol hb/2k. screw with the swing in the patch, dont mention it at all and release it 2 days after the season starts. we'd be still on master if this is what the swing update did back in the spring.

dansamp: Pistol Peter Kroes got to -18 through 2 on Plat... hoping he makes the cut. I think I'll be a few strokes away at -16 but I blame my putter!

Doyley: Nice to see some XB1 people doing well across all the events. Will take a bit of time (say after the Week 3 promotion event) before we see a few more in the top tours - but it's a great start
