Yesterday I shot a 36 in the stapleford format, but, we only played 15 holes as it was getting late, as well as I didnt score on two of them! :)
Pretty pleased! \o/
Did 97, one of the worst scores this year. Ever since recovering from my back sprain, I can't get 2 good rounds together.
The highlight today was my wife's 3 wood shot hitting a deer. About 15 of them sat across a fairway and won't budge. She had no choice but to hit and hope that her ball goes over the herd. Instead, it hit one of them in mid section. The deer just got up on its feet and trotted away. But the rest of them just sat there until we drove our cart right through it. It's like they owned the course. Venison anyone?
Shot a 79 (par 71) yesterday. 37, 42. Bogeyed the first two and parred 8 in a row before mishits charged forward. Had a triple on 14 with OB off the tee. Fatted drive on par 3 16 that went about 40 yards, two poor chips and a long putt to save bogey. Had 1 birdie, 5 bogeys, 11 pars, 1 triple. Very solid day for me. Hit 9 fairways and 7 greens. Chipped well and putted great (30). The birdie was best of the day. After 3 poor holes, triple, bogey, bogey, I had to have a birdie on Par 5 17 to get under 80. It is long and very narrow, fairway is about 20 yards wide with major trees on either side. Striped drive, mishit 3 wood to difficult rough behind tree. hit a hybrid grounder that ran up to the green for a GIR leaving 55 feet for birdie. Ran the putt in. Maybe highlight hole of my golf career.
70 last Friday. Caviat - easy course, especially the front 9, par 67 (33/34). But even par on the front nine. Very windy.
Last hole was fun. Short Par 5 (454 yards, dog leg right and uphill). Driver - 8i to green - about a 15 foot putt. Still missed the eagle putt. 3 opportunities this round, two close chips (missed) and that last hole - inches missed, all three. Opportunities, will convert one someday.
Never had an 8i 2nd shot to green on a par 5 before (9 iron distance at 135y, just added a club since hitting to an elevated green). Normally it's 5w or 3w. a few 5i - once had a 6i to a green.
Got up really early, an played a round with joshn3 today.
Beautiful morning, and a very enjoyable round.
I ended up 3 putting everything and 4 putt once, for double bogie. The greens were wet and the grass was straight up so all my putts were short. I hit extra hard on one putt and it just got to the hole. I looked like it hit the brakes 1 foot from from the hole.
Nice round, and it will take a few more morning rounds like this to get used to the greens.
Drove the ball extremely well, could not take advantage of it with my irons, and my putter is still lost in la-la land. Found out that i was looking through the bottom of my eyes, instead of center. So i lowered my head, trying to keep my head more still (lacking this key lately), i was hitting the driver amazing. Irons were grade C at best, some decent shots, nothing consistant. Still a bit too steep in the attack angle, and missing some shots short right (pushes).
