What will you shoot tomorrow? - Page 2

Did it, shot 97. A little disappointed though, I still left so many strokes out there especially toward the end of the round when the wheels just seemed to come off. Maybe it was just fatigue, just seemed to lose focus and get sloppy on the last few holes. A little frustrating when the shots your making for most of the day disappear at the end, oh well, such is the life of a high handicapper. Hopefully I can get one more shot at the course before the seasons over.

The law of average hasn't kicked in yet.  Posted 103 from blue tee today.   My next round is this coming Saturday.   I feel I am recovering from slump.   3 more days of range practice and I will be primed to get a good round in.   I will shoot 90, plus or minus 3 strokes.  I guarantee it.   B-)

Finally, I came through with my prediction!    From white tee, I did 89 with ESC applied, 92 without.  It was an excellent rounding, considering I had two 10's (a par 4 & a par 5).  I needed 7 pars and a birdie to counter those two 10s.  

 

So, what happened to my slump, and string of 100+ rounds?    I had two chiropractic sessions which alleviated my back/neck pain and orthostatic hypotension.   Was it a coincidence?  Tomorrow's round will tell me.   In any case, I am glad for a good round for a change.

 

Tomorrow's prediction?  87 plus or minus 3 from white tee (or 91, plus or minus 3 from blue tee).

I was going to guess 78, but never posted my guess.  I shot 78 today............does that count?  LOL

I was almost spot on.   I did 92 (90 with ESC applied) from blue tee.  I am out of slump.  I am going to hug my chiropractor tomorrow.

Yes, but the thing about you being a low handicapper is that you can only be off by +/-1 stroke anyway :smartass:

We are playing Sat. at Whittier Narrows so I will say 87.....or 91?

Probably terrible, I am in the mood to just smash the ball as far as I can, not shoot low scores.

2 words for you......  Driving Range

 

Save you a bunch of money too!   ;-)

post #32 of 146

I never think about what I am going to score. When I go out I have the same mind set. Put the ball in play, keep it in the short stuff and try to keep the big numbers off the score card. 

post #33 of 146

I thought I was out of my slump as I shot 80 and 81 this weekend, but my swing was no where to be found... ended up shooting 86! Ugh!

I think I am out of slump, shooting couple of 90s (after ESC) this weekend.   Unlike you, I don't want to end up with 96 (your 86) tomorrow.   I am going to go out on a little limb and say I will shoot under 90 (Wente Vinyards course).   That will confirm I am out of slump.      

post #36 of 146

That is a great Norman course.  I love playing there.  I usually go out to the Bay area for work once every month or two and always try to play different courses.  But Wente in Livermore is one of my favorite courses.
