Blew past three holes today for the first time...

Postby Jwt4412 » Fri Jun 23, 2006 9:03 pm

So I threw a round today with a friend...

Blew past three holes today from the tee for the first time ever...

Found 30' from somewhere didn't feel like I was doing anything different.

First significant distance gain in a little over a month.

Good job! Bet your release was flat and lower then usual. More controlled :)

Keep it up :) I did that the other day on a hole, in the past I would have never even considered throwing my gazelle on.

I actually found that point in my throwing skill (being able to ovethrow longer holes) one of the more difficult adjustments to make. Forcing yourself to throw straight and long but not too long and land that sort of drive anywhere near the tee frustrated me for a long time. Then you have to ask yourself, do I actually throw for the hole in one and risk overthrowing for a longer putt or do I try to land safely near the hole instead.

on 90%+ of holes, the area 50' short of the basket but dead center is clear.

on about 50% of holes, the area 50' long of the basket but dead center is clear.

the percentages say it is usually better to under throw, but basically, look at each hole and choose accordingly taking all things into consideration, e.g. wind, terrain, etc.
