Game of my life...

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Well, 11 months into this great ride, I finally broke into the 80's!!!! However it is a little bitter sweet, due to a significant melt down on the last three holes. I had a 65 with three left!!!! Great drive off tee at 16, left my approach a little short into a deeeeep greenside bunker. I am usually pretty decent in the sand, but it took me 4 to get out. Two putt for an 8. 17, I hook left out of bounds, bounce all around this hole for another 8...aaarrrgh!!! Par 5 18 into the water off the tee, couple of crappy iron shots and two putt for a 7. Total score 88.

Here are the highlights.

3 over 39 on the front 9
125 out PW hole out for Eagle on 9. Couldn't see it go in because of a two level green. buddies played it off like I went past into the water. after milling around a little, I found it...in the cup!!!!
14 Fairways or GIR
34 putts (last week 43)

So, there you are...big choke down the stretch, but I am still super excited to finally reach this goal!!!

Keep at it, should have been well into the 80s, skill is obviously there, 14 gir is great!

Congrats. Yeah skill is definitely there. Sounds like you may have started getting a little over excited at the end. (who would blame you, if I was playing that good, my 300lb ass would be doing backflips). 

 

My advice, do not dwell on those last 3 holes. You need to get out there again and put up some good numbers ASAP

That's pretty amazing.  You should be very happy with your 88.  First time I broke 90 was with an 82.  Let's just say it sucks to break it by so much, and then be disappointed for the next year, still trying to break 90, but never get close to that crazy number.  Keep at it and you will break that 88 in no time. :)

WTG Joe, I know how it feels. Keep up the good work.

OT but the company I work for just registered the generic version of Viagra. Did you all know there is a huge market for it? We will start mass production soon. Anyone want to be my friend?

Nice round! and 14 GIRs is awesome, if you can routinely hit that many GIR you'll be seeing a lot lot more of the 80s and lower i promise you.

Did the OP really mean 14 GIR? That's amazing, not sure if I've ever hit that many greens.

Hey Joe,

 

Don't look at the scorecard, just record your score for each hole and move forward.  The worst enemy of every golfer is the 6 inches between his ears.

He says he was on 65 through 15 holes so if we assume the course par at 72 and the last 3 holes at play at a combined par 12 then he was only +5 at that point. I would assume then then if one hole he'd missed the green he bogeyed then he'd have had 4 three putts from 14 GIR which from the OPs handicap and purely the fact that hitting that many greens gives you a lot more chances to 3 putt then i would say 14 GIR would match to his score. But hitting 14 GIR for the OPs handicap is a terrific effort so fair play to him

That is amazing. I'm lucky to hit 1 or 2 GIRs in a round. If I hit 10 GIRs I would do a back flip, I would be so excited.

Yes I just checked.  The most I've ever hit was 12, 5 on the front and 7 on the back.  Then again, my best score every was with 7 GIR. ;)
