What'd You Shoot Today? - Page 594

post #10675 of 13976

Shot a 97 (48--49) on a tougher course that I played from farther back tees than I normally play.

post #10676 of 13976

I don't usually post this stuff but what the heck.  Worked a 12hr shift today and it rained almost all day.  The last hour of work it stopped raining so when I got off at 6 I headed to the course.  It was empty so I started off.  Got to #1 cold but it's a pretty easy hole and parred it.  #2 is the toughest hole on the course and hooked a drive OB.....SOB.....Double bogey.  I was 5 over after 6 and pretty much wrote off the round.  Then chip in birdie on 7, birdie on 8 and 9 and had a 38 at the turn. 


#10 is my hardest hole on the course and I parred it.  That's rare but stuck a great iron from 170 out for easy 2 putt.  I was even until 17 par 3.  Dumped the tee shot about 15ft short and wrenched my back....damn.  Really hard green with steep break.  2 putt for bogey....No big deal.  18th is a par 5 dog leg but I birdie it about 50% of the time.  Not today.  Back tightened up on 17 so I sliced my drive into trees.  Punched out and was still 250 out.  Ended up with a bogey for another 38.


I'll take a 76 for my lowest round of the season and best since my knee surgery 2 months ago.  Of course I'll still bitch about being 5 over after 6 with stupid mistakes and bogey on 18 but overall it was in the zone.  All in 1:45.......

77, on a par 72, 6400 yards rated 71.  I had 4 bogies in a row on the back nine and then an eagle on 17.  Other than my eagle chip in, my short game - both chipping and putting, took the day off.  Gone.  I hit my driver great.  Straight as an arrow all day swinging smooth and getting 275 give or take 10 yards either way.  Hit my full iron shots great too.  My short game is usually the cornerstone of my game.  Not today.

I didn't play as I took my wife to the beach for the long weekend. 17th anniversary so my clubs stayed home.

40 and a 41.  My handicap is creeping in the wrong direction

post #10682 of 13976

Played River Bend Links in Tunica today from the white tees



Shot a 99 which I'm happy with being that its only the 3rd time I've ever broke 100.  All 3 times have actually been out of my last 4 games so  I'm feeling better about my game.  Being that I'm running off about 11 hours of sleep in the last 3 nights due to the baby I was actually expecting a lot worse.

Today was my first time ever shooting even par for an 18 hole round. 4 birdies, 10 pars, and 4 bogies - even par 72. The course is fairly easy, though. The 72 plays to a 2 handicap. I'll take it, though!

Yesterday, I carded an 84 on the same course... It's amazing how one day you can stink up the course, and the next everything just seems so easy...

Today I shot a 111. I pretty happy with it since it's my first round in 11 years.
post #10686 of 13976

84 Sunday on an easy course 69.3/119. Really played better than that. If not for a shank that came out of nowhere and flew into a pond, leading to an unfortunate triple after what should have been a birdie opportunity it was a solid round. Really just two bad shots that ran the score up.

post #10687 of 13976

Shot a 93 up in Door County. Course rating only 65.8 but man the trees and rough made it very unforgiving. I lost 8 balls! I was hitting my irons a little bit right, I think it's because I used to have a draw, almost a hook really that I would compensate for, but the last few times on the range I corrected that, but then playing I still aimed right. I hope that's what it is anyways haha I also could have putted better. I only had 31 putts, but with only 22% GIR, I should be pitching/chipping much closer to the hole.

Played River Ridge (Victoria Lakes course) in Oxnard yesterday; white tees, 70.3/125, 6351 yards. Shot a 94, including an OB penalty (but no other penalty strokes). Shot of the day was for my third consecutive GIR on #12: hit a 6-iron really poorly, worm burner at that point. Skipped 4-5 times across the water in front of the green, hit the rocks at the edge of the pond, and hopped up, landing 15 feet or so from the pin. I missed the putt but tapped in for par.

I shot a 99 this weekend, which was my first time to break 100. My previous best was 107, although that course was rated 70.1/129 compared to this course which was 67/112. This was also a 9-hole course that I played twice but was still par 72 when playing 18. Would you still calculate your handicap the same way for this even though it was a 9-hole course?


The bad thing is, I hit one stupid shot that cost me 2 strokes on the 15th, then my drive hit a fairway bunker on 17 that led to a triple bogey, and I hit the water on the par 3 18th which led to a triple bogey. If I had just gotten a bogey on those last two, and not been stupid on the 15th, I could have easily shot a 93.

42-43=85 @ River Forest


Hit some good shots and some not so good shots.  Tried out a new Ping putter that I bought at a flea market.  Made a couple of putts, but missed a few, too.

+13 (49)




3 shots were ones were they were semi shanks. It was bad, all my divots were very deep, i just couldn't maintain any sort of ball striking. Thank goodness i 1 putted 3 times. I ended up with 3 balls in hazards.

post #10692 of 13976

Had probably my best round of my golf career(not much of a career) shot a 84 on a par 72 from the tips. Could have been a few better I rushed a few shots on the last 2 holes it was getting dark and the mosquitoes were horrible but Ill take it hit a ton of GIR and didn't lose a ball.
