Shot 42 (+6, 33.5/125). Started off ugly but managed to turn it around. My birdie on 14 was from about 50 feet, so much for just trying to get it within 3 feet. Like yesterday, another day of a few really stupid mistakes. A shanked tee shot, an awful chip on 2, and a poor showing on 15. Still kind of shocked I managed a 42 given the mistakes.
43, +8 (32.6/118). I went back to my driver and did well with it. I had two poor drives and the one on #7 was just a shank, would have happened with the 3w just as easily. My doubles/triple were the result of a penalty, a poor layup that required a punch out, and the shank coupled by a 3-putt. That's the difference between a 43 and a sub-40. Ah well, it's coming soon enough.
I voted 91%+. Considering I just started playing again in February, I would crush year-ago me. I just hope I can answer the same way this time next year.
Yeah, I've seen it as well.
Certainly, and I suspect I'll stick to the white tees but I do have a desire to move to the blues. I enjoyed playing the blues and will likely mix it in, especially now that I have an "after 5pm" membership to this local course which I took your advice on by the way! It's the closest course to me, just about 10 mins from door to door.
I'll also say that yes, I know it's kind of a stupid question to ask and I'm pretty sure I know what you all will say. But, I figured I hadn't started a thread in awhile and it's on my mind, soooo...
A little background... I've been playing from the white tees this season (my first real year of playing regularly, first time I'd played in ~6 years was Feb). I've had 34 outings this year, decent split of 18 and 9 holes (432 holes total). I've moved from a well over 36.4 handicap to 22.4 and have made good progress so far. I recently decided to put the 1w away in favor of the 3w off the tee. I've gotten more accuracy with the 3w, but it's not so dramatic that I would...
Shot 51 (par 35, 33.9/125, 2,950 yards). It was my first trip from the blue tees and proved to be difficult. On the par 4s, I had 4h approach shots and even a 5w tossed in there. It makes me feel like I should stick to the white tees until I either gain distance, or start teeing off with the driver again. I was actually kind of surprised I shot a 51. Yesterday I shot a 47 from the white tees, although that was on the back which is certainly more difficult than the...
Beautiful course.
Shot 47 (par 36, 33.5/125). I joined the Twilight Club today at my local course ($50/month, unlimited play after 5pm daily with cart fee). I normally play two 9 hole rounds a week, so this will save me a few bucks and get me on a nicer course than I'm used to. I had trouble chipping and putting today. I'm trying to work in my new 60* and I found myself really inconsistent with it. I hit one nice chip to within 3 feet, but the others came up really short. I'll...
