What'd You Shoot Today? - Page 642

post #11539 of 13996

Almost won the Medal with 84 net 64.

Only for a wild 3 wood on 7 and a duffed wedge on 9 I might have achieved my ambition.

Curses, foiled again!!

It was a lovely round started with a par and a birdie on first two holes.

Then it just rolled along in the zone.

Statistically not bad with 10 fairways and 32 putts but not sensational either - just solid golf.

Maybe next month.

83 (13 over).

I've been in some seriously rough form lately and started very badly again. A combination of been on the beer the night before and lack of confidence in my game resulted in being 6 over through 3 including 9 putts. I limped to 48 out and then my game just took off. I birdied 10 and came very close to two more on 11 and 12. Dropped a shot on 14 and got it back with another birdie on 15. Then on the par 3 17 I found myself with a chip over a bunker from a steep down hill lie. I actually hit a really good shot to get within 8 feet but I missed the putt. I finished with another par for a 35 back 9.

I played really well with 7 GIRs on the back 9 and it should do a lot of good for my game. But I've never been under par for 9 holes before (that's 3 times I've done it in level now) so it seems like a chance wasted.

Babe Zaharias GC in Tampa.......Seniors tournament called The Two Joes, commemorating two past golfers.


I shot a 42/44 = 86 with one Birdie for 23 points. My average was 21 points so I was +2


The winner was +10 with + 6 second.


Weather was fabulous (low 80's).


Great time was had by all..........7 of us split 13 pitchers afterwards.

83 front 43 back 40  par 72 rate 73.7 slope 137 posted 7.8


1 birdie 8 bogies 2 doubles 7 pars


Had to start shotgun cause of frost delay but started great with a gorgeous 7 iron on a par 3 from 168 to 5' and canned the putt, then I had 6 bogies and 2 doubles over the next 8 holes.:doh: Then play the next 9 at 2 over, sometimes I just shake my head at what goes on but it was an absolutely beautiful day no clouds no wind really to speak of and it probably got to low 60's. What is more worth mentioning is one of the guys in our group shot 66 with 7 birdies. He listed as a 1 hdcp and I wonder what index at the slope I play at he would be. Can't win a skin to save my life though the one birdie I had only one other person had also and it was the guy in my group (he cut a lot of people today).

90 with one birdie & six bogeys

79, in 9* Celsius (balmy 49*F) Dec 15 on a mucky course (not frozen, no snow). Not many east of us playing golf, unless they are quite a bit south of the 49th parallel, so we enjoyed our special status, here on the glorious west coast. Ya gotta strike ball first or it is fat-city. Putts are struck firmly (!) and balls check up without too much persuasion. It was sooper.

44 on front 9 Sat with 3 doubles. It was a little challenging with snow on the greens but amazingly I didn't hit any snow with approach shots. Didn't even face a shot where preferred lies came into play, course was mostly clear. The doubles were due to being rusty more than anything. All were the result of errant drives, one resulted in a lost ball in snow to the left of a fairway I typically don't miss. It was just poor decision making and not being tuned up to pull it off. Twice I tried to take advantage of the conditions and hit longer than usual drives, went for the green on a 333 yard par 4, not smart.

It's 16 degrees and snowing. My wife and kids went cross country skiing around our house, and I shot another crow.

Reading this thread keeps me motivated.

Played 9 shot 39 rate 36 slope 138


After the round was just messing around on a few holes hitting some wedges from about 115, hit one in the cup.:-)

post #11548 of 13996

Sunday first time ever from the blue tees to shoot a 39 on the front 9 par was 36.

The back 9 shot a 40, par was 35 again this is personal best for me to card a 79 on a par 71.

The course was Meadowlark one of my favorite course's, it is not the hardest course but it is a lot of fun to play in Huntington Beach.

Weather was great had to be in the 80's so shorts and a polo, tee time was 11:45. We got put with two other guys but for the most part it was just me and my son, a lot of fun that day!

Finally broke back into the 70's again with a 78.


Based on my driving, I didn't deserve it. Any course that punished you for missing a fairway would have had me grinding to beat 90 instead of 80.  That said, I hit the recovery shots, chips, and putts that I needed to.  Really fun day.

I hadn't posted in a few days, but last week I played at the Biltmore Golf course CR/SLOPE 68.2/115.  I hit a 101, I was doing great, but shanked 3 holes which would have put me in the mid to low 90's. It is what it is!

42. Pretty shitty round, dissapointed

post #11552 of 13996

Played nine holes at Southern Gayles over in Athens, Al. today and it wasn't pretty. Only 3 pars and 5 bogeys until the ninth hole where I finally made a birdie.


Pretty much played army golf all day. Left followed by an over-correction to the right with almost any club until the last couple of holes. Maybe another nine and I would have been better but who knows...That's golf.

post #11553 of 13996

Played yesterday and shot a smooth 100. 43 putts. Rough and greens getting ready for the Sony Open. Guess I'm not ready for the tour.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year or as we say Mele Kalikimaka and Kau'oli Makahiki Hou! A safe, happy and healthy New Year from Sandbaggeranonymous.com℠

6610 yds. 71.1/121.

75 with 3 birdies and 6 bogies with 2 3-putts. Pretty pleased overall....the 3-putts notwithstanding.

Santa Anita Blues. . .

44/44. 70.6/122 played by summer rules off the real blue tees, played with my kids. Had a great time.
Wasn't even trying all that hard, and I felt my green side playing should have been better.

87  :poo:


Just a really,really,really bad day,


This round was over so fast, I was 10 over after the first 7 holes.

I know the course is tough 73.4 slope 139, but I just played like total crap and the worst part was I knew I was going to have a bad day after the first tee shot and that usually doesn't happen, I have not had a good round now for over a month. I think I may just go to an easier course for a few rounds just to get some of my confidence back.
