Hey Joe

Game of my life...

22 posts in this topic

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!!! Joe

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. :)

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. ;)

    • I bet against that for a couple of reasons.   First of all, in this day and age there's virtually zero tolerance for DUI, and rightfully so, regardless of celebrity.  In addition, all police vehicles in Florida now have dash cams that are automatically on when the emergency lights are activated.  Many jurisdictions now outfit officers with body cams as well.  As a result, everything an officer does is subject to close review....and if you pull over a car for erratic driving at 3am, that is found to be registered to Tiger Woods, I guaran-damn-tee that it's going to get reviewed... The discretion that cops once had in a lot of these types of situations just doesn't exist any more.  No cop is likely to risk his career by letting an obvious DUI slide these days, even if it is a celebrity.  Maybe especially then.
    • It doesn't appear to me he was aware he was breaking a rule... until now
    • For the average golfer, getting a driver "that won't hurt your game" is critical. Getting fitted forces you to take a look at what really works, rather than what you think works. As for tech, a lot of it has been incremental change, with an occasional tech bubble that may or may not take off. Depends on when "recent" starts.... 2004: TM R7 driver features adjustable weights in the head to help shape ball flight. 2008: Muzuno MP600 driver features "fast  track" slots in the sole that let you move weighted screws to left or right. It was going on clearance about the time I got fitted for my Callaway HyperX Tour driver. 2012: TM goes with "loft up" ... touting high-launch, low-spin drivers as the route to exceptional distance. Several OEMs start making mini-drivers. TM also adds SLDR and Jetspeed drivers. 2015: "Turbulators," small fins in the crown of the Ping G30 drivers that promise better wind flow over the head. 2017: The Callaway Epic driver with "jailbreak" technology: two metal posts behind the clubface that promise better power transfer through the ball, and a gain of about 10 yards... It depends on how much the technology is new, and how much it is recycled from a few years back. And so we haven't forgotten, parting wisdom from above...  
    • He must have been very messed up or the authorities would not have arrested him.  Why was he driving in that state? Where was Notah to look out and take his keys? Imo he must have been way messed up. .09 breathalyzer or something and a minor infraction like a rolling stop and there's no way he's arrested unless he is not well liked anyway in that area.
