What'd You Shoot Today?

My bro and I played The Crossings yesterday and I tried the black tees (6590 yds, par 71, 71.1/131). We started on the back, and I shot a very poor 99 (51-48). I was actually pretty good off the tee (10/14 FIR), and I hit some long drives too, but once I got to where I had an iron in my hand I went to pieces.

Probably shouldn’t have played the tips. Oh well.

Well! Played another one of those rounds today, where my long game is totally off, while my shortgame is top notch. I played an away course (par 72, 6350 yards, rating 72,7 and 141 slope) and shot a solid 83. 
 

The front 9 was good, except from the 3 lost balls (2 on Hole 7 and 1 on Hole 4). Should have hit more fairways (1/7) and greens (2/9), but 6 pars and 14 putts on the front 9 isn’t bad. 43 shots. 
 

The back 9 was special. I didn’t hit a single fairway and just 1 green, and still managed to shoot 40. 10 putts!
 

My lobwedge and putter were on fire and I made some spectacular saves. I missed only one putt inside 14 feet and that was of course my only short birdie putt (6 feet). This could easily have been a 92 round instead of 83. I need to spend some time on the range…..

87 at the Pete Dye Dunes course at PGA West.  Great course, I will certainly return there!  Hit 9 GIR.  Course is in great conditions, even the greens, despite obviously having been recently sanded.  I made a point of complimenting the grounds crew before leaving.

Played 9 hole best ball with the church men’s group.  We played a number of my shots, so I was happy with the swing today.  We should have made birdie on the all the par holes and parred the bogie holes.  I know a solid best ball round should always be under par, but given these guys only play a couple times a month, 4 over thru 9 was pretty good.

Not played for 3 weeks and back at my home course, decided to play in the middle of the monsoon since the weather has been dry for two or three days and yesterday was really hot and sunny.

Sure enough it rained late last night to early this morning and when I went to the course it was overcast and a bit of drizzle.

Front 9 started well, par, par, birdie, par, par and then 4 bogeys in a row.  Dad decided at that point the rain was too much for him to play and so he wound up going home.  Ran into a friend who was playing alone and had just finished the back 9 as we were done with breakfast after the front 9.  Played the front 9 again.  Bogey, par, par double bogey, birdie, bogey, bogey, par, par.

Happy with the round and especially the two birdies.  The first birdie on three was a great second shot and the ball was about two feet from the hole.  The second birdie on five was a decent second shot with the ball about pin high but maybe 10 feet right and the putt just tracked all the way.

Shot a 9-Hole round that could/should have been better.  Scored 52 but that was with at least 5 wasted shots.  I took both a Stroke & Distance and a drop from hazard on a single par 5 hole (3 wasted)  Also had two other really bad tee shots neither of which got past the yellow tees (2 wasted).  Driving was horrible with 0 fairways.  I had 2 drives that were in the rough close to the fairway but the other 5 drives were just horrible.  Bad drives made approach shots difficult if not impossible and I got only 1 GIR and 1 nGIR.  This round exemplifies that the saying "Drive for Show-Putt for Dough" is just plain wrong.  I had 15 putts and 0.42 SG Putting which I feel is pretty good but still scored for crap. I had no three-putts but did have three 10 footers all of which I 2-putted.  Statistically I think I should have sunk at least one of those 10 footers but it was not to be.  I did 2-Putt from 50 feet for a bogey which was a relief after one of the really bad tee shots.  One highlight was on a Par 3 where I won Closest To Pin for the league so beers were on me (Nobody ever seems to take the money they win home with them).

Game of golf humbled me on Wed. Drove an hour and a half to meet buddy from college at his course. Tee off 1pm in 90 degree weather and by hole 13 we were just trying to stay alive. Drank 2 32 ounce powerades during the round and one on the way and didn’t have to urinate once during play. That explains the level of dehydration I was at. Thought I was going to fall over at one point on the back. Went home and went right to bed at 6:30. Wasn’t a pretty day. First hole set the tone. Too aggressive with the line for my layup and caught a tree. Left me a terrible lie for my 3rd which I left short of bunker in high rough that I blasted over the green led to double. Par 3 2nd missed the green and chip on them 3 putt for a double double start. Par at 3 but then a triple at 4 leaves me 7 over through 4. Settled in and played 5-10 at 2 over. A missed short par in there that should have fell but after the start wasn’t a bad run. Unfortunately from 11-18 I may as well have given up. There was a quad in there. Seems like every tee ball in the stretch found a way to end up behind a tree that blocked my approach. Couldn’t get a putt to fall. Ended up at 36 putts for the round. Worst putting stats in weeks. Ended up only hitting 5 GIR all day. 93 for me. One of the highest scores I’ve had in over two years. Play enough it happens I guess. First time seeing a course it can happen to anyone. I’ll bounce back.

Played another 18 holes today and this time dad played all 18 with me.  Not as good as yesterday 😊 but still happy since I played both 9's and two days of exercise.

Double, par x 3, double, bogey x 4, par x 3, double, bogey x 2, par x 2, bogey

9 hole league. My round was marked by poor driving and some penalty strokes offset by and great iron play and putting. Made two putts over 30' to save par after hitting big draws or fades to hit the green at all from off the fairway. Won a closest to the pin on a 156 yard par 3,  hit it to 3' 4" and made the putt. A few holes my bad driving put me in a position where a bogey was a good recovery.  Shot a 43.

I played a solid round yesterday from the blues at Umstead. I was even through 4, which included a chip in for birdie, but then I finished the front triple-par-bogey-par-double and turned in 43.

I nearly holed out for eagle on the par-5 tenth and had a tap in birdie, then I coasted until 16 and finished par-triple-bogey for a 45 on the back and an 88 total. 

Another good day off the tee: 11/14 fairways, and two of my misses were by less than a yard. Just a really solid round overall!

Poor approach shots and even poorer chips/pitches resulted in a disappointing 83.  Scoring wasn't helped any by hitting a shot OB on a par 5 and taking another double later in the round.  Golf is humbling.

Another "consistent for me" round today with 42 on the front, 44 on the back for an 86 on a the par 71 course at RiverBend (69.1/122 from the whites at just over 6,100).  Only three doubles today, all on the back side.  Six pars and the balance bogies.  Was 7 of 14 in the fairway off the tee, with 3 GIR and 5 nGIR.  Best shot of the day was on #3 where my 2nd shot called for a 5i, struck it pure only to see it land on the green and shoot about 1yd off the back.  The chipping work in the yard with the 8i paid off several times today as 3 of the 5 nGIR called for a little chip shot to make the rest of the journey.  Each finished to 6' or less from the hole.  Had some dances with the big pines that called for a punch outs - those happened on the double bogie holes.  Takeaways from the day - need to work on the irons more as I am either puring them or being toey.

70 or so today. I didn't putt everything out, but the putts I scooped up were gimmes, and not the "five foot" variety, but actual gimmes. And not "Erik gimmes" as determined by the Wisconsin crew (eight footers and in), either. 😄

I hit two off the first tee, too.

Shot 83 today, 44/39.  Plus 10 on the front, plus 2 on the back.  Driver and putter were on today. 
The front 9 took me a few holes to get dialed in.  But once I got through the first 5 holes things settled down.

Solid 90 today with one triple, two doubles, three pars and the rest bogies at RiverBend, with my son in tow.  He shot a wonderful 40 on the front 9, while I scrambled for 44.  The back 9 was slightly different as I struggled for make 46 while he cruised with a 44.  I managed to hit 7 of 14 fairways, 3 GIR's and 4nGIR.  Putting was okay with 34 total putts - this course's greens are in rough (and I mean rough shape).  They are not for the timid as you have to be confident of your stroke.

86 from the back tees at my home course (only 6300 yard). The highlight was an uphill (can't see the surface but can see the pin) shot from 115 yards out, into the wind, pin in the back. Hit my 7 iron (normally my 130-135 club), and hit it well. I mention that it was my best iron shot of my day. Get up to the green and no ball, so I pull my putter and 52 degree out of my bag, but when I get halfway across the green I decide I should check the hole first. Turns out it was the best shot of my life, because sure enough it was in the hole. It was a birdie, not eagle, because I duffed my drive, but man I'm on cloud nine.

    • Did they blue screen in that golf course? Something just seems off to me. At first, I thought it looked like a really good video game cut scene.  I think they look very hi definition, and the background looks less so.  The physics of the golf ball look off. You can see the golf ball just start to plummet out of the air right after he hits it.   
    • I had the chance to play Southern Pines this weekend...it's REALLY good.  A solid 8/10.    
    • Played Umstead with my brother again today.  I shot 40-42 for a solid 82. The front was consistent, four bogeys and five pars. A par on the par-5 ninth was a bit disappointing since I was on the fringe in two with about a 15-footer for eagle, but it is what it is. On the back I made two doubles on 15 (jail on approach shot) and 16 (drive hooked OB) but otherwise solid: five pars and two bogeys. So I was able to keep huge numbers off the card for the most part. It was a fun day. My brother also reached a milestone today: he went 46-43 for 89 and broke 90 for the first time! He only had one really bad hole (tripled 5), and a birdie on 10 jumpstarted him. It was fun to watch! I’m playing Hillandale with a buddy tomorrow morning, so stay tuned!
