Game of my life... - Page 2

post #19 of 22

Congrats.  Breaking 80 is a huge milestone.  One many of us might not reach in a lifetime.  Not to highjack your thread, but here's two quick ones about coming close:

 

Played and 18 hole round that included 16 pars and two QUAD bogies for an even 80!

 

Playing with some friends a couple seasons ago.  Upon reaching the 12th tee, a really difficult par-3, my buddy says, "Damn, Dave, do you know you're 1 under right now?"  That was all she wrote.  Nothing but ugly followed and finished with an 83.

 

Who knows.  Maybe I'll catch lightening in a bottle for an entire round and shoot 77-79.  Would be nice to break 80 ONCE!!!

 

Cheers on your good round, mate.

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!!!

Joe

Congrats Joe! You will forget the last three holes but you will remember the hole out from 125 forever.

Sorry for the confusion on the GIR. I was refering to fairways off the tee for a par 4/5 and hitting the green on par 3's. Hope that clears it up.

Right haha, that's very different to 14 GIR but still a very good accomplishment. You must have been on fire with your driver!
