What'd You Shoot Today? - Page 265

Re: What'd You Shoot Today?

88 (43/45) in 112 degree heat index here in Florida. We walked the course as well. What were we thinking? Anyway, I three putted too many times. My stroke was just not there and I was hitting alot of them with a prayer.

Re: What'd You Shoot Today?

Yesterday I tanked it. 42, quit after 9.

Today I lit it up. 74 (0.8 differential). Four birdies, six bogies.

Went deep today!

Took the day off and played Stanford GC today. I haven't played there since the remodel and they've stretched it to a stupid 7600 yards! We played the middle tees at just over 7000.

Anyway... started off with a couple of scrambling pars and one of my friends made the comment that my swing looked different. That I used to hit against a firmer left side and now it looks like I'm sliding through the shot.

Boom! Hit 12 of the next 14 greens in reg with birdie putts no longer than 15 feet (4 were under 4 feet). Went 34-33 for a boring 67! Felt good to play well again.

Re: Went deep today!

6 pars, followed by a bird, followed by a par....followed by a TRIPLE BOGEY....for a nice 2-over 38. Happy with the score, not very pleased with the last hole. If I keep golfing like this though I'll finally make it to single digits!

101. Hit the ball well, too well in fact. A lot of my irons were well struck, but flew the green. Seven or eight three putts really hurt.

I'm feeling good about my swing, though.

Re: What'd You Shoot Today?

I shot a 66 on the back nine of the local course. Absolutely horrendous. I'm trying to dial in the new swing after I had my first lesson last Wednesday. But I started putting it together on the last 3 holes and had the day's first GIR with a 170-yard blast off my 4-iron on a par 3 17th with two more solid shots from my 4 and 5 on the next two swings. I ended up double bogeying all 3 thanks to some terrifyingly bad putting and a couple of topped shots.

Second lesson is this Wednesday, hopefully we'll make some more progress.

Re: What'd You Shoot Today?

I shot 102 on Sunday in Rockford, IL on a little mini vacation. That course was a complete mud hole with all the rain they had Friday. I am chalking that round off to horrible conditions.

Re: What'd You Shoot Today?

79 Friday night. Tied my best round. 7 on an easy par 5 and 3 putted a couple holes.

-10 on Saturday in a golf scramble. 2nd place.

97 on Sunday night. New driver - alot of OB and penalty strokes. putted and chipped well.

Re: What'd You Shoot Today?

I played 6 holes on the exec course at lunch at 1 over with 2 sand saves. I almost had a chip in on the last to even it back up.

Re: What'd You Shoot Today?

Rough day in a tournament. The course was 6800 yards, and still wet from all the rain. Me, as a fairly short hitter, I was hitting hybrids/low irons in all day and I was striking them really well but they just weren't hitting the greens. I don't think I had one mishit all day. When you only hit 3 G.I.R. though, you got to get up and down. And of course I had 35 putts, so that's not getting up and down. Ended up shooting a 91. Pretty awful for me, granted it was a 73.2/128 course playing even tougher with the conditions, but all excuses aside I still felt like I left a ton of strokes out there and just bad errors.

Re: What'd You Shoot Today?

felt like i played horrendous today but i scored better than the other day when i felt like i played well... weird...
45 front 44 back for 17 over...
so many birdie and par opportunities that i just couldnt convert...
driver was just embarrassing today... one of the members that everyone clowns due to his ugly swing and "great" personality outdrove me all day... i couldnt get it to go further than 200yrds even when it went straight... disappointing

Re: What'd You Shoot Today?

39. 1 birdie, 2 bogeys, 1 double bogey. Need to work on my par 5s. Ballstriking is so much better since changing my swing.

Par 3s - E
Par 4s - E
Par 5s - +3

Re: What'd You Shoot Today?

48 front, 48 back for a 96. Could have been better without a 3 putt on 18 (ouch) and a couple chunked irons.

Re: What'd You Shoot Today?

77 at the Bridge in long island from 7500 yards. Pretty beastly course.

Re: What'd You Shoot Today?

On Monday, at the Suncadia Prospector Golf Course (designed partially by Arnold Palmer) I shot at 88 from the whites. I had +10 on three holes and +6 on the other 15..

3 birdies a good amount of pars a couple bogeys and doubles..

Re: What'd You Shoot Today?

11 over front...
2 over back!!!!...
i was absolutely hacking it on the front...
got into trouble time and time again and couldnt get out to save my life...
my playing partner ive played with a few times before is an incredible player...
he told me at the turn not to sweat it and to just have fun... we werent playing for money or anything so just screw it...
after that bit of advice...
instead of thinking "i need to fly the water for a gir... or i think i got a good opening thru those 4 trees"
i started thinking "lets just hit this shot pure and see it soar"
i totally torched the back... didnt even notice how well i played until we caught up with the group in front of us on 18... w00t

Re: What'd You Shoot Today?

50 tonight. I think I have overdone it the last few days. My back is sore as can be. I'll blame it on that and the heat, yeah, that's it alright.

Re: What'd You Shoot Today?

Played for the first time in a month at an executive course (par 30) and shot 42. 16 putts and a couple of pars, otherwise just used it as a driving range pretty much as I dropped balls at different yardages to hit. Been working on making my swing more flat as I've tended to lift the club rather than rotate in the past. Not a great round by any stretch of the imagination but nice to be back out.
