My Golf League Story Of The Day

12 posts in this topic

Can't begin to guess how many of us are in a golf league. This is about your story of the day in your league - it can be about your best shot, an unforgetable birdie or even your partner hitting a shot out of the woods while being chased out by a snake.

Our league will start this coming Monday.

Last season - par four, dogleg right, hit tee shot into the right rough loaded with pine trees.

2nd shot used a 3 iron to punch it onto the fairway (ended up where the tee shot should have been).

3rd shot hit a full 9 iron and knocked it in for a birdie.

It's such an easy game.

Got rained out first two weeks even the geese sought refuge under the trees - then shot 43 for first time out.

Well... it looks like only two.

I would've guessed quite a bit more.

Hit some great drives in my golf league yesterday, swung through impact zone to full finish and concentrated on being less handsy. Never hit the ball so flush.

Wednesday night I shot a 40 with only one birdie and I missed two three-footers. Still not sure how I did it.

I've averaged well over 100 round per year for more than 20 years and I avoid leagues like the plague.

..........are there any others like me???

I'd rather just play golf.  lol...........league play tends to be so slow and filled with what I call "non-golfers" that I don't want any part of it.

I'm in a league. My wife gets mad when I golf with them because it's always 5+ hours. They always run 5somes....so slow. But the group has some great guys and we have a blast.

I'm in a small league at work.  We play on Mondays at a below average public course with a quirky set up.  The front nine has 3 par 5s (soon to be 4) and 3 par 3s.  The back nine, 2 par 5s and 4 par 3s.  In addition, they don't seem to give a hoot about the Monday folks.  The first three weeks, we get to tee off to the side of the boxes.  If they do construction, it is while we play.

Last week, we had to wait on the second hole for a dump truck to drop a load on our tee box.  The only redeeming feature is the price.

I do have fun though, as most of the players are good guys.  We trash talk a lot, which keeps it light.

Awards and Achievements

I'm in a league this year. My partner is a friend who carries a vanity cap. The first few weeks, it's killed us. His 9 hole cap is 8. On our course, that means averaging 43 with your 10 low scores. We have played three matches so far this year and his low score has been 51. While I've been fairly steady and right around my cap, he's killing our chances. Luckily, the league institutes a "league" cap starting on match 4. So, I'm guessing my partner will be double-dotting on many holes...

    • 2016 Waste Management Phoenix Open Discussion
      Actually, they mentioned today that it's an environmental requirement imposed by the government; local, state or federal, they weren't sure.
    • Steel vs Graphite generic question
      Spin is OK though? I could be flipping a little but I may need work on Key #3 to get that launch down to where it needs to be... Because I SHOULD be carrying my 7-iron 160-165 with that speed.  Maybe the motor is fine (the shaft), just need to work on in-line impact more...
    • Finding Value in The Used Club Market
      I'm liking this:   That makes a lot of sense.  Local Retailers may be getting some of the last years models dumped on them when the new clubs start cycling through.  I was thinking about doing the demo days thing to get a taste of what is out there.  The R7 limited and R11 Taylormade Drivers were good to me.  I think a X2 hot/Big Bertha/etc/ect would probably be more forgiving.  Still, I look at the clubs of old... the Cleveland Launcher Comp / Callaway Hawkeye and think: "If I can buy that club for $20... and I can buy newer (used) for $50-$100... hmmm.  Spinning the wheels.  Thanks for the advice though I really appreciate it. If anyone has a Driver / had a Driver they loved from (2009-2014) let me know about it!  What did you like/didn't like?
    • My ex-home courses closing, changing - proofs that golf is in decline
      I just found out that my ex-home course, Sunol Valley Golf course, went out of business last month.  I played 2 - 3 times a week for 2 years not too long ago.  The course was done in by shrinking golfers, and 500% increase in water cost in the last 4 years of CA drought.  They could not make money.   Another ex-home course is now doing business as a golf and foot golf (soccer golf) course.  Golfing customers were not enough. Another course nearby (Santa Clara Tennis and Golf Club) is going to turn into a parking lot for a recently built football stadium. It is sad that despite improved economy in Bay Area, CA, golf business is in decline.  They have been in decline since 1990s but most of the courses around here survived 2008-9 recession.  The current drought and the resulting water cost going through the roof appears to be the final nail in the coffin for the weaker courses.   Sad.
    • Injury Question
      I didn't play golf for about 11 weeks due to it being difficult to play with work after day light savings time fell back.  Now, from the sounds of it, I played through the majority of the repair time as I walked 9 holes 4-5 times a week with 1 day of walking 18 for 7-9 weeks after the injury....I know, I'm an idiot. As it stands now I don't really notice it 90% of the time, its just something that pops up on a swing every now and then.  From the sounds of your healing time, I may have caused it to heal improperly leaving me with a hitch....  If I really just need to not do anything and it'll heal over time then I'd gladly do it, kicking and screaming the entire way as I already had a plan in place to push my handicap into the single digits by years end. I don't like the sound of having something happen as "I get older," I'm only 26 damn it .
