Breaking bad club... A thread for those trying to break 100 - Page 25

post #433 of 442

I shot my first double-digit round today. After blowing up on the first nine with doubles and triples galore, I played the last eight holes in four over par to finish with a 97, 54-43. Going out to play again tomorrow, and hopefully I can do better than today.

Welcome and congrats ... A 97 feels great the first time.

Yes, and it could definitely have been better without such a bad front nine. During the back nine, I hit half-drivers down the fairway on every hole, taking a miniature swing and making sure I got the club on the ball. That was the #1 thing that helped me score well, I think.

Played in my club tourney today.  We were supposed to play 18 Saturday and 18 today but because of heavy rain Saturday we played 36 today.  I shot two rounds of 101 and ended up finishing 2nd low net with a -10 over the two rounds.  The guy that beat me shot a -16 net...and I thought I was sand bagging.  ;-)

 

My scores are starting to settle around the low 100s, I need to figure out what I need to do break that 100 barrier!

   I'm running out of time to meet my season goal of breaking 100 at my home course. 

 

Had a great front nine in crappy weather and shot a 45 on Monday morning, but went into a serious double, triple, double funk that ended up with a less than impressive 56 on the back.  It's like all the good things I was doing at the beginning just went south.  I did not add up my score after the front, but it was pretty obvious after seeing all the sixes and sevens on the back that I wasn't going to get it done.

Play short. I played 9 holes with a senior, today, who was deadly accurate with his 5 iron from 150 in. Every time i was inside 15 yards, he would hit in from 100 to 150 and nail the pin, well he was inside mine for the putt.

He had a few pars more than me, and never struggled. His drives were only 160 yards, but right where he pointed. He did play from the white tees, one up from me about 10-60 yards closer.

Still hovering around 105. I am seeing improvements now, but not in the score. I am starting to get a good sense of how far my clubs carry, and am hitting more greens from far enough away to actually leave pitch marks (a sign of progress for me). My putting has fallen apart completely though, and went from being a strength to a weakness.  So I lose less balls, hit the green from farther away, but three putt more often than not now. Triple bogeyed a par three, for example.

 

You know what? I am going to head over to the course and practice my putting instead of commenting here this morning!

On a nearly two-week cycle, I've been breaking bad and then breaking back into bad. Lows of 89 and 87 and then last week, 104 and a WD (stopped scoring after hole six).

 

I have no idea what the difference is at this point, but it's been the pattern all year long.

I shot a 52-49 at my home course today. Had a sweet birdie on hole 11, but ran into penalty trouble on 12 and 14. So close, yet so far.

I am definitely running out of time, though. Winter is coming.

I'm pleased to say this afternoon I managed to shoot a 96 on my home course. Success!!! It was fairly busy when we arrived, and fairly cold (4 degrees Celsius) and we started on the back. My driver stayed in the bag until the first par five on hole sixteen. I'm very pleased with the 47 I shot on the back, and even though my driving wasn't too good on the front and my chipping went south, I managed to pull out at 49 on the front.
