Every golfer knows it is sometimes most difficult to close out rounds when you are playing very well. The temptation to consider the possible scenarios over the remaining holes has golfers mentally filling out their scorecards before the final holes are even played. We’ll talk about how this scenario has played out recently in our own games and we’ll discuss how we played during July 4th weekend rounds at Ithaca Country Club, Silver Creek Golf Course, Seneca Falls Country Club and En-Joie Golf Club in Endicott. Also, Bob’s Pick of the Week is the Phil Mickelson short game DVD set, we recap the Greenbrier Classic, and talk about the rumor that Tiger Woods is dating Jason Dufner’s ex-wife.
On this week’s episode of the Finger Lakes Golfer Podcast we talk about what difference the golf ball you play makes in the scores you post. Also, a first time caddy gets a win, a recap of the Dutch Hollow 2-Man Scramble, our British Open picks, the 5th hole in our Finger Lakes Dream 18, and how to deal with stressful shots.
There may be nothing worse in golf than the fear of having a short putt when you have the “yips”. We talk about how to work through a bout with the yips and some famous missed short putts in golf history.
We also talk about the upcoming 2-Man Invitational at Dutch Hollow in Owasco. The annual 2-man scramble has golfers travelling from out of state to participate and we have one of them, Rob Miller, in-studio for the entire episode.
In golf news, we discuss the clubhouse fire at Camillus last week, talk about Angel Cabrera’s win at the Greenbrier, fill you in on a great women’s event going on at Corning Country Club this week, and did you hear what Hank Haney is saying about Tiger Woods? We reveal hole #4 of our Finger Lakes Dream 18, Bobby’s Pick of the Week, and tell you why you should try to have the best, bad round you can.
