What'd You Shoot Today? - Page 691

post #12421 of 13996

I'm playing much better lately.  Swing changes (which is more of a discovery of my older, better days than an actual swing change) is still resulting in some inconsistency, but improving.  Also, my putting is in a definite slump.


I shot 79-79 this weekend.  The Sunday 79 included an OB ball and FIVE goddamn three putts.  On the plus side, 11 GIR.  I've had this happen before when I suddenly start hitting more GIR.  That means more lag putts, which I haven't been having to make a lot when I hit 6 GIR, and more three putts.  I need to put some time in on the putting green from 40+ feet.

42 (+6)
Couldn't hit a fairway. Shot 79 (+8) yesterday with driver in the bag. Decided to pull it out today and it hurt me. Always hard to swallow your pride.

80 (38/40) from "The Tips" today. 133/74.1 and 7200 yards. Second time playing from back there and my mistakes were not due to length or even from having to hit different shots into the greens than I am used to... just a REALLY bad double and two more of those 3-putts that keep me awake at night.

Decided last week to give the Tips a shot. My handicap had recently dropped to a 7.3 and I was really just looking to get different views of the courses that I play in a pretty regular rotation.

I will say this - the tee boxes are MUCH nicer back there. I think it will be my new home at least until the weather turns cold again.

My daughter and I tied playing alternate shots against teams consisting of: my son and older nephew; my younger nephew and their first tee coach.

The third hole was tenuous, and we were one down.

We finally won the last hole giving us a three way tie.

-1 35 last night, two birdies and one silly three putt bogey on a par 5. Good thing it was not only under par but under the rating for that side. Made every up and down, only hit 4 GIR. Combined with my previous 40, that should have been 37/38, I trended down nearly a point.

I shot even par yesterday at Green Meadows. Birdied the second hole. Bogeyed the 9th (which is now apparently a 478-yard par four with a 260-yard carry over water on your tee shot…?).


Parred every other hole.


Kiddo tagged along. Needs to snap out of things or quit golf.

47 in league tonight. Only 1 par. Combination of everything going wrong at different times. Finally started striking the ball solidly on the last three holes.

Shot the worst 79 of my life at Hansen Dam golf course on Saturday.  I was 1 over after 11 thinking I had a chance to shoot under par with a few easy holes coming up and then proceed to shoot 6 over for the last 7 holes.  I only missed one fairway but missed quite a few greens that I should have hit and my putting was so so.  Two birdies including a chip in.

played at my friends home course yesterday and could not hit a ball at all, finished on 98 (+9) for my handicap :(

18 holes of night golf last night. Shot a 49-41= 90 


Lost 3 balls on the front 9 (that's the price you pay when you're playing night golf...) so it could have been better.

Monday morning at Centennial 68.4/129 I shot a shocking 107.
Went out again in the afternoon at Mohansic 70.8/128 and shot an 88, my second best score ever! Including a. 45 yard pitch in for birdie.

82 with 3 triples, 1 bogey and 14 pars last night, two in ponds and one OB. Took me 9 holes to feel like I could swing freely, for some reason I was really stiff and tense. But I made 14 pars so not like I played bad.
