It was a tale of two nines.

I should preface that working in the 4-6 rep range for squats, OHP, and deadlifts at the gym this morning and then working on my swing might not have been the best things to do before playing 18 holes but 🤷‍♂️.

So it rained lightly for most of the round and on the front 9 I had 2 pars, 4 bogeys, and 3 double bogeys, 10 over, shooting a 45.  Swing felt in control, didn't lose any balls and generally felt really good about my golf game for the first time this season and this was my third round. 

Then I think I started getting tired, my back started to tighten up and I really couldn't make swings the way I had been able to on the front 9.  My best hole was a bogey on a par 3 and I picked up 4 penalty strokes on the back.  My putting still feels like the best part of my game so far this year.  I'm not really draining putts but I'm leaving them real close to the hole my speed is good.  Also had a couple bunker shots I got out in one try so feeling more confident on that.  So, not the best but here is what I did for the round:

Score: 108

GIR: 2/18 

FIR: 1/13 

Putts 33

Putts/Hole: 1.83

I'm excited that my swing helped me get a good score (for me) on the front and I think if I play without putting that much stress on my back that on the second nine I'll be better.  Probably won't play for a couple of weeks so, we'll see.

I didn’t score well, but I like how things progressed with trying to get the new swing feels to play. It was a bit of an up and down affair. I’ll need to work on my driver next.

Meh round today, course was soaked and dealt with some rain throughout the round.

The good:

Driving was very solid except for one hole, and I was almost dead equal to a scratch golfer based on strokes gained, and that was with 0 roll.

 

The bad:

Chunked some chips, left myself with multiple back to back chips instead of just getting onto the green somewhere

Hit terrible 6 and 7 irons into 2 par 5s on the back 9 that put me in really bad positions that resulted in 7s.

Worst part of the game was putting though, was so hesitant on long putts and couldn't get a feel for the green speeds.

Hit the ball pretty well today considering EVERYTHING was soaking wet. I normally don't hit the ball very well in these conditions (see also: hybrid on #3), because I hate it when mud splatters up from a divot, but I hit it pretty well today.

Played in my third tournament of the year this past Saturday.

Came in second place. Got beat by one shot with handicap. The three putt on #3 got me. Other than that putted pretty well. Won a couple of skins and a CTP.

About the worst score I could have had, given how I was hitting the ball. Need to clean up some stuff in my short game. Specifically, working with my 60 degree wedge more around the green. I default to my 54 too often, because I haven't worked on feeling out my 60 degree enough. Today, I had a couple of shots that really called for a 60 degree wedge that I either incorrectly went to the 54 on or didn't do well enough with the 60 degree.

This is about as ugly as it gets. The only par was from a missed 4' birdie putt. 🤮

Hit a second ball off the first tee and counted that, then everything after that was good. VERY windy (out of the west) today, hence some of the shots on 1, the hybrid I hit on 3 (thinned the driver), and the 3W off the tee on 5.

SG:Putting was 2.51. The bad direction. 🙂 I one-putted… twice. Once was from two feet. Though, I did gain 0.07 SG:OTT and 0.87 SG:ATG… and 5.55 SG:APP. 😄

Hit the ball pretty solidly for the most part, though I thinned all my full and flighted wedges for some reason. Less toed shots, a few more heeled (even just hitting one heeled shot is more than usual, so moving in the right direction).

Short game wasn't great, even had a double hit on a pitch on 7 (no penalty, thanks 2019 RoG!). A couple of times I rolled the hands over instead of leading with the left hand on chips which leads to poor results. Made the adjustment by the 5th hole and it got better.

Putting was good. Started the day by draining an 8 footer, followed up by missing a 4 footer, but no three-putts.

Struck the ball solidly for the most part but struggled with command, like it just wasn't going in the direction I intended to. Took me five holes just to get used to hitting a fade and even longer to realize that my miss was a push-fade, so basically I didn't aim left enough all day.

Short game is still in the transitional phase. Contact was better, but still getting used to hitting with a square face and had some distance control issues. Putting is quietly becoming a strength, or at least no longer a weakness. I don't want to say I'm a good putter, but even mediocre is an improvement over where I was last year.

Started off really well, and then came crashing down to earth. I ran out of energy a bit on the back 9, which didn't help. Again, another round where I feel like I couldn't have scored any worse that I did given my long game. It's becoming a theme...

    • Thanks, that’s nice to say. I’ve been working on it for a while. Although I’m currently having trouble implementing a new move.  And I always fight the urge to whip the club back way inside and flat and then come over the top. I work everyday on my backswing shoulder turn so my arms can come along for the ride when I turn away. If I manage to get too far the other way, it’s easy for me to correct.
    • I have been listening to the Unspooled podcast which is methodically going through the AFI top 100 list. Recently rewatched back to back, The Post, birdie,  and then All the President's Men, eagle, (for the umpteenth time, I love this movie) because it covered the latter movie. While I respect the opinions of the podcast, it has had its criticisms of movies that I love, like Saving Private Ryan for one, but I learned a lot from the hosts, and that held for ATPM, like I did not know as much about Muskie as I should have. I tossed aside The Post as awards fare, but on rewatching it, I enjoyed it more, especially being able to put ATPM on right afterwards, a great double bill. The latest Unspooled is on Vertigo, eagle. May rewatch that as Vertigo is another of my all time faves. Vertigo, episode #55 of Unspooled on Earwolf Paul & Amy fall into Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 psychological thriller Vertigo!  
    • I would agree with @dennyjones.   Typically if it's just out playing around, I'll often try to do the harder wedge shot through the "V" in the 80 ft tall trees.  I'm in the trees often enough that iv'e had too much practice so it's a higher % shot for me.  If the score is important, I will take the shot that I think give me the best chance at advancing the ball, whatever it might be.  Every round is some kind of learning, some more than others. My course typically doesn't have many people when I'm there, so I will often play 2-3 balls at the same time unless I have someone behind me, then I will let them play through. You can still learn while enjoying and having fun.
    • Hopefully, you learn something from every experience. Of course, some of us learn faster than others. Obviously when playing a round that counts, you play for the lowest score. That's why there really is something to be said for practice rounds, particular when the course isn't busy and you can try different things.  As time goes by, the strategy for each hole on the course changes through learning. The hole where I used to lay up in front of the hazard has become a hole I know I can hit GIR if my drive gets to a certain place on the fairway. Now its just a matter of hitting that darn driver. It's a process.
    • For competitions, etc absolutely.  For fun daily play?  I disagree, it's my game, I can make the purpose of that day whatever I like. I have days where I feel like taking on that cool shot.  So I do - just for fun, knowing that my score will be hurt.  So what?  I want to try the shot and I'll take my medicine when it doesn't go well. Other days, I play for score and try to select my shots as best I can based on my limited knowledge, skill and experience. It's a game - I do what I want.
