Mount Vernon Country Club
Ended up playing 18 and then another 7 prior to darkness. Played first 18 holes in 2 hours and 30 minutes
short 9 hole course, at Briar Bay in the Falls area in the South Miami area. 31 par, 3,966 yards 35.5 rating, 113 slope Only played 9 holes shot for 51 took only 1 penalty shot, which is great for me. Only the second time on the course in almost 4 years, lots to improve still though. Would I have played the course again to complete an 18 I would have averaged out at about 102-105, Huge improvement from my 140 first outing!
6450 yds. 71.4/126.
95......yep, a freaking 95. For those that like the math, that's a 21.2 differential! Couldn't drive, couldn't chip, couldn't putt. Absolutely perfect day and a course in pristine condition.
So bad I had to look back at my GHIN history.......I looked back 5 years, from January 2009 on. It's the worst round that whole 5 years, and only my 6th round in the 90's at all in that time. I got nuthin'.
All you can do is put it behind you and move on, but a round like that sure is a kick in the gut.
I played the front twice today at Stone Canyon: 72.4CR 145Slope..........35-38=73
I only hit 3GIR on the first nine, but I only needed 10 putts
10-14 Fairways---7 GIR---25 Putts overall.
I didn't do anything spectacular...just kept the ball in play. I missed a lot of greens today, but the misses were small leaving myself with simple par saves. I used the same ball all 18 holes....that certainly helps!!
I teed off at 4pm....and finished 18 holes before it got dark at 630pm!!
The par 3 was messured at 143, like it matters!
Course messured at 6,824 yards dont have the slope.
Shot a BRUTAL 46/54 100 today. Only the second time I've played in the cooler weather and my swing felt tight all day, just didn't feel like I was able to extend my backswing or fully follow through on my downswing. Very poor off the tee and my putter felt like a sledge hammer. 2 pars, 8 bogeys, 4 doubles, 2 triples, and 2 quadruples. 5/14 fairways, 1 GIR, 36 putts.
Ugh, still too early to put the clubs in the closet for the season, although I may just drop the scorecard from this point on and just get some practice rounds in when I can.
