What'd You Shoot Today? - Page 557

post #10009 of 13996

Played an executive course (4500 yards) that is the second course at a place in Tyler I like to play at. Thought with the shorter holes, I'd shoot better. Not the case. Shot a 100 on a Par 68 and the place really highlighted what's the biggest flaw in my game: 50 yards and in. Hit my driver decent and my irons really well, but time after time would duff chips or blade them and shoot it all the way across the green. Also had 39 putts which is just not good at all.


A short Par 4 (about 260 yards) epitomized the whole day. Hit the best 4 iron I've ever struck (220 yards, gps measured) but took two chips to get on the green then two-putted for a bogey. Awful.


The positive I'm taking is that if I can sure up my short game the scores should start to lower. Even without being able to play all that often, I feel like I'm in a good place with my swing. Now it's just a matter of fixing the rest of it.

Friday I hit 12 greens and shot 77. Today I hit 6 whole greens, bogies on 3 of 4 par 5's, and shot 79 (6504 yds, 71.2/125)

I may have to take up tennis....... a5_crying.gif

Got out for the first time since October. Played Glenross in Delaware Ohio which is becoming "home" for now because it's local. Shook off the rust while carding 56 on the front from the blues area, they didn't have markers out. Came in @ 46 which easily should have been lower if not for the snow runoff packed sand traps. Overall, I can see promise for this spring. Driver isn't grooves in, but hit the irons great.

GIR says it all about what was wrong with my day.  Tee shots were a little bad, most missed fairways weren't bad.  Putting was decent, chipping was great, bunker play was great.  Approach shots were absolutely dreadful.  Had plenty of opportunities to hit more GIR, but just couldn't do it.  Most times I would hit it half way to the hole.  I will chalk it up to the time change and losing an hour of sleep.

-1, or 67 around my home course PAR 68! Only one par 5!


post #10015 of 13996

I played in a Golfweek Amateur tournament Saturday. Shot 74 and won my flight (A). 12 pars, 4 bogeys, 2 birdies. Stats were 9 fairways, 12 greens, 34 putts. Two of the missed greens were on the fringe just missing the edge. For the 6 missed greens, I was able to get up and down 4 times for par. Career competitive round for me. Practice is paying off.

post #10016 of 13996

Shot 86 at Heidelberg Country Club. First round of the season for me, so I'm okay with it. A lot of straight pulls though leading to quite a few missed fairways and even an OB. 

post #10017 of 13996

FINALLY. I am able to contribute again to this thread. First round of the 2013 season for me.




I was even par 8 through 16. Very disappointing bogie, double bogie finish. And no, I wasn't massaging my handicap. We don't post until April 1.

post #10018 of 13996

Shot a very satisfying 77 over the weekend. 9/14 fairways (although 2 were with a 3i), 11 GIR but only one birdie putt went down. It's nice to have the driver feel comfortable in my hands again. I'm striping it and added ~20yds back to my distance, and all just by slowing it down and hitting it easy.

post #10019 of 13996
Very satisfying 99, first time broke a 100, went out in 46 and back in 53 made a few stupid mistakes else would have been lower. But oh well no lost balls 3 pars happy today :)


39 putts today which was bad and chipping wasnt as i would have liked

41-42= 83 with about 32 putts and only 5 GIR.  I had several 5-6 foot putts that I normally miss to save pars. I had one 3-putt and five 1-putt greens. Good lag putting/distance control. Couple of nice sand shots with one save (might be worst part of my game).  Score should have been much worse.  Haven't really been practicing as much as I should, playing a lot of tennis instead. Partners might be the worlds' worse golfers - I don't think that helped me. By the last three holes, was ready to get off the course. Long round. Those are my excuses, and I'm sticking to them.......





Anyone tell me what their goal for putts/round is for a 9-10 HCPer?

post #10021 of 13996

Shot an all time best 85 yesterday!  I'm normally in the low 100's and have only shot in the 90's 3 times, but yesterday it all came together for me.  Only hit into the rough twice and was able to hit a "stinger" out into the fairway to setup for a good approach shot.....some of my approaches were still short of the green by 10-20 yards so I had to chip again onto the green, but once on the green I only "2 putted" most of the time.  I actually made 4 pars as well.


I think the biggest factor was that my daughter was playing with us for the first time, so I mainly concentrated on getting her all setup, showing her how to swing, etc. so I didn't focus on my score at all during the round.  It was only at the very end that I saw I made a few pars and only had two "7"'s on my scorecard.

post #10022 of 13996

Played a full 18 holes today for the first time(usually play short rounds), shot a 125. 

Not bad for my first full round, but I could have done better. I know what I need to work on though. 


post #10023 of 13996

Easy course, rated 65.5. 5,000 yards (score card is meters) but for some reason they always set some of the tees forward which annoys me greatly as it's already a overly short track. 




A strange round. I drove the ball well but with the tees set up as they were there were only four opportunities to hit driver. I got up and down for birdie on the only par 5 and two drivable par 4s, but pretty much failed to get up and down for par when I missed the GIR.


But 5 birdies is my best ever. And I had really makable birdie chances on 16 & 18 too.

post #10024 of 13996

Shot 45 on the winter course (par 36). Two doubles ruined my chances of doing better than bogey. Overall I cannot complain with even bogey at my level though.


Cannot wait for the other courses to start opening around here!

post #10025 of 13996

54 out +53 in =107




40 putts (2x1 putt, 10x 2 putt, 6x3 putts)


Ball stricking getting much better...just need to sort out the consistency and start hitting a lot more GIRS and so that I have a realistic chance at increasing my number of 1 putts and getting under 100 for the first time! :)





post #10026 of 13996

I was completely lost on the front 9.  Finally got things together on the back....hit some Fairways and some Greens.  Now if I could only get that putter working....41 putts is unacceptable.
