I forgot a shot somewhere in there, and I hit a second ball on one hole that I didn't play.

I shot a 70 once! It got dark, so we had to stop after 13 holes. :-D

Shot a +3, 39.

My first two out of my three tee shots were all heel cut shots, not sure what is causing that, probably my axis tilt at impact.

Last hole I couldn't get comfortable on the tee box. We had 15-20 mph winds all evening. The hole is a long par 4, with a dog leg left, and water that guards through the fairway. I usually aim over the trees on the left and cut the corner. Tonight the wind was blowing directly in your face if you turn the corner on your 2nd shot. There is OB left just to the right of the maintenance road. So I aimed a bit further left just to give some error. Well I hit a HUGE, and I mean HUGE slice that ended up going into the right side of the pond. So lets say the ball started left of the bunker and curved probably over 100 yards right. :no:

I am finding the swing path is getting a bit outside to in on occassion with trying to get the clubhead not inside my hands at A2. This time was BIG outside to in.

More poor play.   [URL=http://www.gamegolf.com/player/ciphernate/round/118774]http://www.gamegolf.com/player/ciphernate/round/118774[/URL]

Yeah no kidding. I played that bad once...only once...and it beat my PR by 9 strokes lol

You guys do realize is it a par 34 right?  It is the equivalent of shooting a 42.  I get that many would still love to shoot that, but the goal is to get better not worse. :-D

Nevermind...didn't realize it was only 9 holes and just saw 6 over, so I didn't think it was a bad round for you.

Yeah, not your best work lol ;-)

Effectively a two-person scramble.

I might delete the round eventually. The yardages are correct (it was windy as heck early in the day, so there are some long drives but there are some short drives too). I didn't add it to the GIR challenge I'm in, and the distances are correct. But I didn't hit ALL those shots (my drives were close).

So, I'm just posting it for S&G; right now. It'll be gone the next time I add a legit round.

Still at this point I would love to shoot +6 on 9. I'm more like +17 at 9 at this point.

My round from yesterday, effectively a two-man scramble:

-17 had two teams T1. But they had four players who contributed. :) On the bright side, we weren't last!

5 hole round from yesterday.

http://www.gamegolf.com/player/billchao/round/119509

It's just kind of how I play golf. Incidentally, the only two fairways I hit were both grossly mis-hit. First was a topped 3w on 4, second was the driver on 5 - huge push that ricocheted off a tree to the right. I yelled fore in case it punched through, but it didn't.

Played in a golf outing today.

Front Nine: two man scramble

Back Nine: two man scotch doubles (both players tee off, pick the best drive and play alternate shot in)

Shot a 33 (-3) on the front and 41 (+5) on the back.

Just really interesting going from a scramble to basically alternate shot can be a drastic change.

Tee Shots: 4 Slices, 2 Pushes, 2 Block, 5 push draws. I have no clue were the banana ball is coming from.

Irons were pretty much pull draws for half of them. Maybe 2-3 push draws.

Putting was pretty good, maybe a lot of putts inside of 15 feet. Short game was mix. 20-60 yard pitches are pretty solid. 0-20 yards is still a hit or miss. Not too horrible in contact, just hard time judging lies on a couple.

Swing is kinda in a state of limbo right now.

Round full of mis-hits, low bullet hooks, and questionable putting. In other words, just another day on the golf course.

I'm completely lost right now.

A couple rounds from this week.  FIrst one a tune up for my tournament next weekend: http://www.gamegolf.com/player/golfingdad/round/128075 where I started very slowly and then played quite well for the last 13 holes.

The second round was a leisurely vacation round with the wife tagging along as my "caddy."  Highlights are the 2-putt birdie on 3 and the OB bogey on 7. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/golfingdad/round/129784

Lots of slightly not-great shots that I got away with. Slight pull-draw on #2 (but hit solidly). Didn't hit great tee shot on #4 but it bounced across the road. Tee shot on #6 was a bit on the toe but downwind really rode it out and rolled to a few feet from the middle of the green.

Wind was out of the south, fairways soft. #8 and #9 were right into it.

Great round Erik.

Not so great for my recent round.  Have not really played for a few weeks.  even though the score was not great I did like what I was seeing for the most part with the ball flight and start lines.  The swing changes are starting to show some decent results.  Hitting it much better off the tee anyway.  Misjudged the wind on a few shots and hit it way over the greens.  Struggled with the short game and the bunkers.  Hit a few shots fat as well.

This is my round from yesterday. It got dark pretty quickly, started to drizzle on 5, and it was cold.

Didn't hit a single green, but there were far fewer grossly mis-hit balls. That's a pretty good accomplishment, considering that I haven't really hit a golf ball in over two weeks. I tried to ease up on my swing and really focus on making good contact. I think it helped.

    • Having played many, many rounds while under the influence of marijuana I can personally attest to it not being performance enhancing.  Against the rules?  Perhaps.  But not performance enhancing. Quite the opposite. Everyone reacts differently to being high, and while it may well reduce stress it also certainly reduces one's ability to focus.  Golf requires focus.  I'd get high and kick ass for about two holes, then be all over the place. I haven't used marijuana since moving to Florida because it's not legal here, and I don't have a qualifying medicinal reason to get a prescription.  I could of course make one up, because it's not like getting a prescription is difficult, but it's not such an important thing to me that I feel the need to go out of my way.  I personally don't see a difference between drinking or smoking beyond the legal aspect - both are personal decisions, and when used responsibly should be an individual's choice.
    • Heck, I will occasionally do this when playing with my wife.  I always feel like an ass when it happens, but she's a good soul and cuts me a break.
    • As others have said, playing a course from the correct tees makes golf a lot more fun. And it makes for more birdie and eagle opportunities. Heck playing from tees even a bit shorter than you need can be fun. I had two eagles in my last round. I played with some guys who like to play a yardage between the back tees and the middle tees. That made it easier to hit par the par 5s in two, and I did just that. Screw the ego, golf is supposed to be fun.
    • I carry Titleist Vokey wedges and have for many many years. I like that I don't have to think every time I replace them. It's easy. I just get the same specs as I've had before and I know what they are going to do. I nearly always get the previous year's model. Still brand new, but the previous year saves me about 40% off the cost.  Anyway, lately I've seen a number of folks I've played with who carry the Callaway PM Grind wedges, which have grooves all over their face. Taylormade hi-toe wedges have that feature as well. I don't know if it actually makes any difference, but to my mind it totally makes sense to put the groves all over the face. It actually makes me wonder why all wedges aren't made that way.  Anyone have any thoughts about this. Why do most manufacturers leave the toe of the wedge "ungrooved"? Does it really help to have the whole face covered in groves?  On a related note, does anyone play a Hi-Toe wedge? Seems like a good idea as well, especially for lob wedges, 60 degree and the like. Seems like it would give you more surface from which to hit a shot when trying to take a bigger swing. I don't use my lob wedge that way, but it seems like it would help if I did. 
    • Offended?  No.  Annoyed?  Absolutely. I played an event in 2015.  It was my first event with this group and I unknowingly got paired with the hothead.  You know the guy.  "I used to be a 1 index!"  Now he's unable to break 90.   First hole, he hits an 'awful' drive (it landed 4 feet in the rough) and complains about it all the way to the ball.  The pin is tucked in the back-right corner of the green behind a trap.  He hits a shot about 35 feet left of the flag at the center of the green.  A good, smart shot.  He proceeds to fling his 7 iron approximately 40 yards into the fairway.   Later in the round, he hits a second shot on a par 5 that he tugged a little bit.  He got a little unlucky and it hit the cart path and kicked it to the left.  The ball came to rest in play, but near a log that, if he moved it... the ball would move as well.  He took an unplayable, chopped the ball forward a bit with his wedge and then proceeded to use his wedge as a hatchet on the log.  About his 8th smash of the wedge, the head snapped off.   Par 3 later in the round, he missed a 10 footer.  He tossed his putter in the air and let it fall to the ground.  The blade of the putter buried itself in the green about 4 feet from the hole.  He attempted to repair it, but it was evident that there was damage and SOMEONE was going to have to putt through his tantrum later in the round.   I wasn't offended by any of his actions.  A 50 year old acting like a petulant toddler?  His problem... not mine.  I was annoyed by his antics, however.   I've told this story before, but... when I was a caddie back in high school at a local country club, I had a guest of a member fling his club over a fence that bordered a local hospital.  This was on the 10th hole.  He was pissed that he hit a poor shot, so he reared back and let it fly.  It cleared the fence.  I looked at him in disbelief.  He told me to climb the fence and get the club.  I put his bag down, apologized to the member and walked back to the caddie master and told him what happened.  Shortly after, the member and his guest arrived back at the caddie area where the member paid me for the full round, tipped me nicely, took my side with the caddie master and then told his guest he'd not be welcomed back any time soon.   Throwing clubs is not acceptable and it IS poor etiquette.  The word is literally defined as: "The customary code of polite behavior in society or among members of a particular profession or group." I don't see how throwing clubs and having a tantrum on the course can be deemed anything but IMPOLITE.   CY
