I played 36 holes yesterday

11 posts in this topic

It was a great experience. I went out to my home course (I'm a member) with one of my friends (non member) and we tee'd off about 45 minutes before the league, but apparently the league only goes off the front, so we got out 18 in, and then went back to the front. We caught the league by the 7th hole, so we played 7 and 8, and at the advice of a league member skipped nine all together. We then went to 10 and played the back nine again, so I guess really we played 35 holes. It was a lot of golf, and although I didn't play my best it was a lot of fun. I played consistently average, and my friend, a new golfer, played his best golf to date. I love this game.

Some friends of mine and I have managed to get 47 holes in on a few occasions (I guess we never realized that starting a little bit earlier would allow us 56 holes). Talk about a lot of fun! Was very tiring at the same time.....I was only able to get either 9 or 18 in on the following days.

I kind of had to chuckle at the title of this thread a little. Last week/weekend was my guys annual golf trip. We played 36 holes Thursday, Friday and Saturday, plus 18 on Sunday coming back. All in +90 degree heat and high humidity. Talk about being worn the heck out....I honestly had zero desire to play on Sunday but did anyway. We do this every year and well...I'm getting too old for this crap!

Needless to say, not real excited to pick up my clubs for the next couple of days. I haven't even mustered up the energy to clean them from the trip. Not very often I can say I'm sick of golf...LOL.

its always a fun time! I try to get out for 36 as often as I can

I try to tee off around 6:30AM then I'll leave and have a sandwhich at the 99 and then go back and play another 18

tiring, but I'm only 23 and can easily walk 36 in a day

I don't know how you guys can play more than 18 holes in one day. I'm arm weary by the 15th. I must be getting old lol. That or the 110degree heat makes it hard.

I've only reached 27. Very pricey when you don't have a membership

This reminds me of a video I saw when Erick Lindgren bet that he could play 72 holes in one day, carrying his bag.

That is unreal. I couldn't imagine playing 72, halfway through round 2 I'd barely be able to swing the club.

Played 36 holes at my club yesterday (two courses), carrying my own bag in a very hot African autumn sun. I havent played 36 in years. It was just tragic on the second round, shooting 10 over handicap and shuffling my feet like a real lifeweary old man. But the company was good and the courses beautiful.

    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. I started out brilliantly, playing the first 4 in -1, but then turned into the wind - into and off the right - and immediately lost a ball playing for too much wind on the hardest hole, which I'd have bogeyed anyway. Putting again wasn't as good as it has been and I just haven't felt like I'm going to hole anything outside of 6 feet. Highlights were the first four holes, particularly feeling like DJ or Rory on the 4th, a good par on 7 (see below) and a good last four holes - bar another lost ball on 18...  http://www.gamegolf.com/player/benpage101/round/1072354 My par on the 7th - only swing I recorded was a really nice punch 5 iron from 170 into a strong breeze: 3rd tee: 'Secret' 6th green: Looking back on the 13th green: I get a few days' rest now before my last couple of rounds, both at Machrihanish Dunes. I've learnt a lot about my game playing these two rounds that I hadn't known beforehand. I find it really hard when I don't know the line and have to guess and commit to the shot far less. If I can see it though, it's generally fine. I need to sort the driving in the wind out as there's just no room for error - a slight mishit and a ball that would be safe is gone. Additionally, particularly at Turnberry, I need to stop overthinking things. Occasionally I'd find myself trying to hit a 7 iron with the ball miles back in my stance to deloft it, aiming way left to compensate and just should have hit what I felt comfortable with and taken the hit with the wind. My putting has to get better as well, particularly from range. So much fun though and I will definitely play Western Gailes again (probably more of a certainty than Turnberry) - I loved the course and the welcome you get was amazing.
    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. The main thing I've taken away from this trip though is that I need to control my driver in the wind better. A lot of times, it was definitely the play and my second shot was excellent, but I lost too many going with the wind, which probably wouldn't have been too bad without it. Partial wedges were really good again and approach play was generally alright.

    • Lake Mead. It's down 150' +/-, and still losing about 5' every year. 
    • Well the head of the pros looks quite steady in the horizontal movement. I just want to emphasize that swing in a barrel and steady head can harm your swing especially if your swing is already good. 
    • Sounds similar, I have never heard any one with this swing thought just hope it's not a one time fluke.It makes sense though if your belly button follows your club head all the way back and through with arms connected to body you can't get ahead or behind with your swing , if  that make sense , don't have to think of anything else it just happens naturally perfect rythem  and a nice draw I also visualize the swing path and try to keep club head on that path
