What'd You Shoot Today? - Page 551

post #9901 of 13032

Heritage Club in Pawleys Island, SC

 

48-40 for an 88. 

 

First time I have ever played this course, heavy fog for the first 5 holes...made it impossible to see more than 100 yards in front of you. 

 

Great layout.  Great condition.  Can't wait to try the course again.

Shot a 93 today. That is a decent score for me. Chipped and putted well. Got in an all day skins game. Birdies a 198 yard par 3 for a net 1. Hope it holds up because I wanna get paid.  I lost 5 balls today, 4 OB and 1 Water hazard.  For me to shoot a 93 and lose 5 balls, wow, could have been the round of my life.

102 (55/47) at my home course.

 

A very odd day - was drilling the driver but EVERY non tee shot (no exaggeration) was hit fat - no matter how many practice swings I took with the divot well in front of the ball.

 

I guess I should be happy that 2 out of 14 clubs worked today (driver + putter)

It was very cold and I could not play golf today.

 

 

 

I did bowl and my high game was 254 todaya2_wink.gif

 

I actually bowled like crap today...........at least I had one good game today.....LOL

I had a strange day on the course yesterday..  The course was open on the front 9, so I was playing pretty quickly, but didn't score very well.  Driver was decent, not spectacular, but every tee shot was playable.  I couldn't hit an iron to save my life though.  Wedges were pretty good, I was trying to be more aggressive with my wedges than usual and ended up hitting a few longer than necessary, but that's better than leaving them painfully short.

 

Ended up shooting a 47.  47% on Fairways hit, but those that weren't hit were very close.  Only had 1 GIR because of my ball-striking.  But I only had 14 putts.  So at least the wedges and putting kept me from having a complete blow-up round.  Still not where I should be, but there's something going on in my swing that I can't shake.

Well, I played in our monthly Men's club tournament, and shot a 78.  

 

 

The greens were very fast... 11 on the Stimp - and there were a few greens that were faster than that as the day warmed up and they dried out.  I four putted a Par 3 #6, which was our 17th hole of the day as we started on #8.  I have to figure out how to take advantage of my drives on Par 5's.  I definitely left some strokes out there.

 

The two double bogeys were brutal...

 

#6... I flew an 8i to the back of the green, nice baby push draw - I flighted the iron just like I envisioned... Expecting the ball to pull back on a severely sloped back to front green.  No luck.  Leaving myself with a 3% slope, 35ft putt ~ 60" breaking putt downhill.  Hit the line that I wanted - but hit it way too hard and rolled it off the green into the fringe.  JACKASS.  I was so frustrated with myself and putted back up the face of the green and left it 10ft short. Missed the 10ft for bogey and tapped in for double. z1_censored.gif

 

#17... I hit a decent drive down the right hand side which didn't draw - just went straight... It actually came to rest on the cart path.  And ground under repair in my drop area, so for nearest point of relief was actually the fairway.  I hit a 5 hybrid from 200yds and I blocked it right - leaving myself with a 25yd pitch shot.  I tried to hit a 58* flop shot for my third shot, to keep the ball from running out and leaving myself with a long birdie putt.  And duffed the flop shot.  I was pissed, and decided to go to my 54* - and hit a bump and run shot and if I left myself with a longish par putt then so be it.  And I duffed the pitch for my 4th shot.  Now my blood was boiling, and I hit the same 54* bump and run and hit it 15ft past the pin.  Missed the bogey putt, and tapped in for 7. z7_no.gif

 

I don't know why, but this game is punishing at times.  I really need to figure out to avoid these type of mishaps from creeping into my game.

81 with 2 doubles.   Ugh.

 

69* and not a cloud in the sky.  I don't know how anyone can expect a decent score in weather like this......

I hear your pain brother. I clear snow of my car every morning these days and then have to drive by the golf course to take my kids to school. Then I come on here and listen to theses FLA and Cali boys crying about how chilly it is for the early morning tee off. Grrrrrr. Lol.

SIGH.

92 at Saddlebrook Resort's Saddlebrook course.......Not bad considering it's tight fairways and water everywhere!

 

It's just across from my house and I have never played the Saddlebrook course....always played the Palmer course.

 

Regular Fee for Feb is $145....

post #9911 of 13032

Played 9 holes today and I had 19 points to win the day. Left a fair few shots out there but I had a BIRDIE on a par 4 I was over the moon.

post #9912 of 13032

Played on Saturday in 25* temps. My first time teeing it up this year and my last round was almost 3 months ago.

 

Its a short Par 70 track, i went 38-40, for a 78 w 3 birds.

post #9913 of 13032

I shot 83. Front nine - 44 (three penalty shots and a 3 putt), back nine - 39 (which is only 3 over. 3 putted twice! aagh!). Overall very happy - hit 11 greens in regulation.

 

Been working on steady head/flat left wrist/maintaining the right hand flying wedge and I'm seeing a HUGE improvement in my ball striking. I've never hit my irons so consistently solid. Need to get those putts in the 30-40 foot range a lot closer though.

post #9914 of 13032

I shot a 52 on the front nine and then things really got bad, lol.

 

It was an easy course - ordinarily I would expect to break 100 on a course like this and maybe even hope for low 90's.  I didn't lose any balls and got no penalty strokes.  My driver was really not working at all . .but I was still managing to poke little 200 yard drives into the fairway - most of the time.  My long irons were working great.  I hit an awesome 4 iron off some hardpan from 185 and stuck the green and several really good 3 iron shots.

 

but . .my chipping was really bad - every chip way short, my putting was also bad - the greens were peplexing me . .sometimes I left em short but more often I was rolling them 6-8 feet past and then missing on the way back.  In my defense, the greens were rockhard and had little tufts of foriegn grass popping through them that would deflect the ball or slow it way down.  My buddy still managed to shoot an 89, though, so . . . 

post #9915 of 13032

Another 82.

The opposite of my last round.  I started out at +3 through the front nine. :)  then +9 for the back.  :(

post #9916 of 13032

played my first three rounds of 2013 in the last 8 days.

 

97, 97, and 98 yesterday.

 

since September 2012 i have lost my slight draw/straight ball flight, and picked up an ugly, weak fade. i know that i'm looping big-time, and coming in really steep.  and i can't stop it.

 

i've hit exactly 5 greens in 54 holes and 0 out of the last 30. haven't sniffed a birdie yet.

 

averaging 4 fairways hit per round, and have lost about 30 yards off the tee.

 

the only fun part of the game right now is putting, averaging 32 putts.

 

i am the suck.

post #9917 of 13032
120. 56/64. Felt like I played well overall. Ill get under 100 soon!
post #9918 of 13032

80. 45/35. For **** sake. Good shots are far better with the new pattern but bad shots are far worse.

 

Did have my first "barefoot birdie", though. Par 5 downwind, driver into left short cut, 4 wood over the back of the green, which is surrounded by water. Got lucky and it held up 6 inches from the drink. Only problem was no dry stance. Took both shoes off, waded in and pitched to 12 feet. With people waiting behind, I climbed straight out and putted barefoot -- fell in the right side. Have to say, it feels downright sensuously good walking around on bent grass with no shoes on. If I didn't think I'd get yelled at at my club, I'd totally practice my AimPoint with nudie feet.
