I entered.
It's been awhile since I've played, last September to be exact. I got out and played 9 after work yesterday (69.1 / 129 -- par 35 -- 2,950 yards) and shot a 49. I was pretty pleased with my overall play, especially my driving. I really just made too many mistakes to score where I was playing at the end of last summer. I had 0 GIR, 3 penalties, 3 sand shots (1 save), and 1 3-putt. My drives were quite good (missed 2 fairways of 6), I just couldn't hit the greens and my...
43 (+8, 69.1/129). First round with a new ball, was pretty happy with it. I played well overall. Had a few poor shots which cost me strokes. I used an 8i for chipping today, instead of an AW, and had really good results. Happy to be able to get closer to the cup from around the green. The greens were just punched on Monday, so putting was pretty insane. I had a few putts that hit pebbles and went off on a tangent, it was pretty rough. Actually happy with how many...
49 (+13, 69.1/129). First trip back to my home course after 3 outings in Myrtle Beach last week during vacation. Played like crap. My fade off the tee has turned more into a slice. I was trying to readjust to these greens after playing the others last week. I've developed an ugly draw/hook with my hybrid all of a sudden. Just bad.
I got a tip last week and wanted to run it by my fellow Sand Trappers. I'm right handed, and have been having an issue with pushing the ball right with my irons/hybrid/woods and slicing the ball more than my normal fade off the tee. Someone I was golfing with last week offered a suggestion which seemed to have positive immediate results. I haven't been able to put in the long term effort yet to see whether it's right for me or not. I tend to have a strong left hand in...
In addition to what others have already said, another thing to remember is that there's always another round out there. Sure we want to shoot our best every time but tomorrow is another day. You'll get your sub-100 before you know it and won't look back. Enjoy the accomplishment and set a new goal for next time.
94 (+22, 6,347 yards, 69.1/126). This was the second outing of three planned for vacation this week in Myrtle Beach. The greens had recently been punched and were really slow, and my putting was off all day. Notice on every hole I had a GIR I had a par. I need to get more GIR.
I've used most of them and prefer GolfShot by far. It's clean and well done. While the Android app lacks in some of the features the iPhone version has, it's still better than the rest for Android. It's a little pricey at $30, but well worth it and the best $30 I've spent on golf in awhile.
94 (+22, 6,115 yards, 69.8/126). The first of three scheduled outings on my Myrtle Beach vacation. I played OK overall. My putting was great but my general ball striking wasn't very good. I hit a number of fat shots and struggled with driver consistency. It seemed like any time I got a decent drive (read: in the fairway) I would duff an approach, or I'd start with a poor drive and finish the hole well. I couldn't tell you how many strokes I saved putting today. The...
92 (6,137 yards, 69.1/129). Played pretty poorly overall, but I'm happy I was playing golf and happy my net was under par. Today I was partnered up with random people, which seems to have this effect on me. I'm nervous all the way through. Not because I feel like I have to impress or anything. I'm well aware nobody cares. It's just having someone over your shoulder, pushing/slowing my normal flow/pace, etc. It makes me tense and clearly that's not good for my swing....
