Driver was mr hook tonight.
Had 18 putts, not a very good night.
Irons were pretty solid.
dramatically up and down in my play - last night was an 'up'
all par 5's I made it there in 2. Driving was phenominal.
played the last 4 holes or so pretty much in the dark
penalties - 1st one was a lost ball, but I'm pretty sure the kids in front on me stole it. they did on the next par 5 and I chased them down. The other was because I hit around a dog leg and it was just about nearly dark by then - probably would have found that ball otherwise...
really happy with the front 9 but couldn't make the 1st putt a lot - still gave myself opportunities though - one bogie was due to the penalty and the other 3 all were within inches of the up and downs....
back nine - started out great and then it went to crap once it got really dark - still made some good shots though - same story, the up and downs on the bogies were all within inches...
wish I could play like this all the time.....so much fun
decided to try something to help me improve hitting irons.went to local course,5600 yards from white tees.smalll greens.decided to see how bad I was without hitting a wood so I teed off using my 4 iron entire round.hit pretty much every fairway 180-190 yards in middle about every time.still only had mainly wedge,9,8 iron to greens but that was the point to get iron practice.i concentrated more on putts and made quite a few.birdied my 9th hole to shoot a 2 over 36 on front.birdied 16th and 17th hole to be only 2 over with last hole to play.last hole was a 440 yard par 5.really thought about pulling out driver so id easily reach green in two but no I took 4 iron and hit it lil thin but down middle and had 210 left.hit 4 iron again even though I knew I couldn't get there but hit it within 20 yards.wind up 3 putting on a very sloped green for a 3 over 73.considering I was giving up like 30-40 yards off tee on the 14 non par 3s you can say I was playing course equivalent of over 6000 yards.bogeyed the 2 par 5s.
Snuck out before work, shot a 91 at Warm Springs (Boise, ID). Last week my approach shots were my strong point but couldn't get them today, kept blading them. My putting has been coming on strong, only one 3-putt today. Driver has been on target as well. Looking to finish the summer shooting in the 80's
Had to travel to Tucson for business and took my clubs with me.
Played Dove Mountain (where they play WGC's Accenture Match play) for the first time yesterday. See http://www.thegolfclubatdovemountain.com/
There are three 9's and I played Tortolita and Wild Burro.
From the tips (blues, not the tips pros play), it was ~7200 yds.
Shot 45 + 39 = 84.
I never in my life expected to write that I was disappointed with a 76, but that's the case today. I had good looks at birdie all day and managed to make only one – a 1-footer.
It was the best ball-striking day of my life, so I'll focus on that and forget about the score that could have been.
