It may not sound like much to some of you fellow golfers but I shot a 93 a couple of days ago and it was good. I was striking the ball very well, still not far but straight where I aimed.

I was 9 of 18 GIR, and 11 of 18 fairways hit.

I had 3 holes I completely broke down on, one being a Par 3. I pulled a Harrington and posted a 7 with a nice plop in the water first.

I have really worked on my short game, but it's time to work harder on my putting. I couild have easily been in the 80's and mentally broke down.

Anyway, it felt good.

By the way, this was from the blue tee's.

9 out of 18 GIR is more than I hit a lot of times. CERTAINLY work on putting, especially ones from 10 feet and in...

Good job though man. It should only come down from here. Keep working hard.

I never wanted to be average. Even at 54 I want to win every time out. Even by myself I want to beat my last score. I'm cursed to be competitive. I know no one else is like that.

But lovin every minute..............

The average golfer doesn't brake 100...

Is that true? If so, it should stop the little guy sitting on my shoulder saying "everyone here is watching you, and they're all better than you" and putting me off :D

Congrats on your round.

Hitting fairways and greens is the way to get it done.

What do you attribute your accuracy to?

Whatever it is...hang on to it. The putter will get hot soon enough....most prone club in the bag to "tension". I'm always, it seems, trying to relax over putts.....lightening my grip pressure helps.....deep breaths....etc.

Fickle game sometimes.

Well Dub. I was brought back to reality today. I played your home course and really blew up. Shotgun start and two different courses was strange. It is a very beautiful course and I can see a lot of work being done. There are some pretty tough holes. When you fade the ball the doglegs' left killed me. The island green also ate my lunch. Yes, I found the water. We were paired up with a gentleman from the philipines. He is a member.

Anyway, it was still a good day.

If you work on your putting, you could be breaking 80 in no time!

9 GIR should equal E or 1-2 under on those nine holes. Then I believe you should get up and down on at least on of the next nine holes. That would be an 80.

Putting is where it's at.

5 years ago I was stuck between 10 and 13 handicap. I switched to the Odyssey two ball belly putter and dropped to 8 by the end of the year. Now I hover between 6 and 9.

Good for you. Those are awesome stats. I had 5 fairways, 5 GIRs, a few blow up holes and scrambled for a 93 the other day.
I gotta work on my putting.....

ezmoney5150, are the two ball putters for real ? I tried one in the store the other day and it felt so balanced compared to my old blade.

Glad you had a chance to play it. I really love the place and thougoughly enjoy all the members I've met. Our club manager, Bill Fumai, deserves nothing but high praise. He runs a tight ship and has one of those personalities that just snaps you out of your "post work trance" and puts you in a good mood right off. He also plays the course at least once a week and makes out punchlists for the course maintenance crew to address during those rounds.

I have to renew in October....I'll most definitely be staying. Glad you had fun.....sorry about the Island View nine....it's a tricky affair....starting off with two 90 degree dogleg lefts can unerve many...especially the first hole...if you don't bite off the corner you are left with a long uphill shot....mean way to start.

    • I have a 15 week puppy and was playing tug-a-war with a rope dog toy, he lunged and chomped for a new grip and caught my finger.  He still has those sharp pointy little puppy teeth.  The cut is a pretty sensitive spot as far as holding a golf club, I don't want to reopen it.  Too small for stitches I would think... I imagine an professional athlete (basketball, golf, football) would get it stitched and play on. Here's a pic from yesterday morning (we hit 80 degrees later in the day, San Diego coastal).
