What'd You Shoot Today?


Recommended Posts

87 on a par-68 course today (Brookside - in Moore: 9 holes, played twice).

__the stats__

1 triple

4 doubles

8 bogeys

5 pars

4/10 fairways

8 GIR

1 penalty

40 putts -- I suck

Weird moment of the day #1:  I chipped on, then the next guy chipped on, hit my ball, and knocked my ball into the hole.  (Yes, I replaced it and two-putted after that, but still cool to see.)

Weird moment of the day #2:  I hit a 7-iron on a 140-yd par-3 (blue flag), and it felt great, looked great.... hit the cup and bounced high and over the back of the green nestling into some tree roots ---- from stoked to double bogey bummer in a single bounce.

I thought I was alone in such depression

After shooting 79 (first shot OOB) for 17 holes on Monday (picked up on 11 after another OOB playing a 4 ball and didnt have a chance) I figured today I cold improve with a little more concentration.

The great golfing god decided differently and gave me a 98 .

How can striking the relatively well 1 day desert me a few days later?

I live in eternal hope.

Keep trying .

1 day it might happen

Yesterday (7/7/11) was a club tournament at my home course (Rancho Park). In the previous tournament, I had an ESC-98. The following weekend, I went out and shot 85 at SCGA ("Rancho California") then an 86 at Costa Mesa muni. Instead of dwelling on that, I went out and shot an 87 at this tournament that should have been lower. After an 8 on the par-5 fourth, I hit a bad tee shot on 5. I pitched out and then hit a wedge to a foot and made the par putt. Next hole: fairway, green, putt, tap-in for par. Next hole: fairway, green, mediocre putt, nail a par putt. Next hole, par 3: green, good putt, tap-in. Next: fairway, green, mediocre putt, good putt for par. Five pars in a row, which I believe is my personal best. I played the second nine poorly, starting off bogey-double-bogey, before making another par. Two bogeys followed, then a double, then another par. Then, on the par-5 18th, I hit a fine drive (so did Palmer that one time he played this hole) and had about 260 to the green. Like an idiot, I pull a utility metal when I could have hit 6-iron PW. I hit that O.B., drop my next at the same spot, hit the same club exactly where I first intended, but didn't pitch it well enough to make the bogey save. Walked away with a fairly disappointing 7 for an 87. I'll know soon enough how well that does, standings wise.

Decided to hit the range today instead of playing to work on some things including putting.  First 4 putts, holed 4 30 footers in a row.  Then I thought, "That's not possible", so I started putting like I normally do. Still working on playing laterally on most of my shots instead of rotationally.  Definitely what's giving me so much distance these days.  4-irons were flying 230 slightly downhill.  Drives were long gone.  I couldn't see them past 270 or so.  I only assume they didn't go sideways. The ball really feels squishy.  I guess that's because I'm actually compressing it now.  That takes some getting used to.

Shot an 85 today at Twin Shields golf course in Maryland!  The is my best score by 6 strokes, had never broke 90 before today.  I was completely in the zone today and my ball striking has vastly improved since taking lessons from the Class A PGA Professional I've been seeing.  (Marty Johnson @ Redgate).  Finished with birdie par birdie par birdie!  Too bad I had two pesky 7s in there or I would have been in low 80s!!

Had the most freakishly awful round today.  Playing a short par 62 executive.  I hit 14 greens in regulation and I three-putted every single one .  I three-putted 16 times today , once from only 4 feet .  If that isn't the yips I don't know what is.  Been pretty consistently shooting only 3 over at this place normally.

Tomorrow is another day and I think it will be spent on the practice green!  Might be time to demote my current putter to the closet for a few rounds too.

Wow, I've been doing a lot of reading in this thread, I have a long way to go. I played my last game maybe a week ago, weather was sunny low 80's with a soft breeze and I shot a 112  granted this is my first year. I have a consistenst slice to the left that I need to work out of my game, plus I'm learning that my swing is kinda slow, I think I may need to break down and start paying for some lessions :-)

79 on Friday at the club gold medal tourney . The champ shot 71.. I won the longest drive of the day and the prize is a Johnny Walker Blue Label Whisky . [IMG]http://tapatalk.com/mu/744d05b3-5676-67b9.jpg[/IMG] 75 on Sat on the same 9s. Was even par through 16 but blew the last 2 holes with bogey and double bogeys .

Played today at a new course, probably my best ball striking day ever.  I shot a 101 on their 18 hole course and a 46 with 4 GIRs on their 9 hole course right after.  I feel like I could have broke 100 during my first round but I got the driver out twice and got an 8 and 9 on the holes.  I need to learn to keep it in the bag sometimes!

Shot 79 (+6) on 7/9.  8 GIR, 5 FWs, 30 Putts, 3 tap-in birdies on par-5s.

That's two consecutive sub-80 rounds since ditching my game-improvement shovels and going back to an old set of MBs.  I just can't seem to get comfortable with the oversized look of the newer equipment.

Most exciting aspect of the round is that I seem to be regaining the driving distance I had when I played as a teenager.  After playing very little golf over the past 14 years (maybe twice a year), when I came back to the game in February I noticed that my average tee shot had fallen way off - averaging right around 250, compared to about 275-285 at my peak in high school.  On Saturday my GPS calculated my average driving distance at 267 yards, with the longest being 287.  And this is at sea level, no wind, and early in the morning on soft fairways. :)

Shot 43-42 on my home course. The 42 is my best nine, and the 85 is my best round of the year. It's the first time I've broke 90 since returning to golf this year.

Been scoring between 81 ad 83 (or +9-+11) consistently now for weeks. Last round 83 with a double par at a long par four where I had a very tight line to the green with my second, ball hit two trees before going out of bounds. A bad chip and a pulled putt to seal the deal. Recovered with a double bogey at the easiest par3 on the course :). Managed a birdie the next hole though. Some stats, hit 12 out of 14 fairways, 14 GIR and 37 putts. Still, I feel I'm getting closer to breaking 80 and staying there.

My goal of breaking 100 for the 2011 season is over and now we move on to breaking 90



Well, I last posted here after shooting my 93 and talked about my new goal of breaking 90. Now I've been there, done that . Shot an 87 today at the same course, Bethpage Red. Started out the on the front 9 with a somewhat unimpressive 48. Only one par which came on the 4th hole where I hit possibly the best 7 iron of my life, 165 yards into the wind to 15 feet. Mostly unimpressive golf and some screw ups like the penalty stroke on the 7th where I hit the ball with my practice swing. Also on the 8th hole, I proceeded to drive it 295 yard right down the middle (downwind on rock hard fairways, still my longest drive ever though), hit it to about 20 feet with my 56* wedge, and then 3-putt for bogey. So after this nine, I really tried to refocus myself and just concentrate on each individual shot because I was hitting it pretty well up to this point. Ended up shooting a 39 (+4) on the back for my best 9-hole and 18-hole score. 5 pars, 4 bogeys, almost flawless. I still left a couple shots out there today (especially on the front) which proves to me that I still definitely have room to improve. The back wasn't even spectacular golf, just hit some greens and dropped some putts. One highlight was the open faced 4 hybrid out of a fairway bunker and onto the green on the 18th hole to save bogey (I had already went bunker to bunker on my second shot). Another was the 3 hybrid up the hill on 15th hole for the GIR which I then 2-putted for par. Overall I just drove the ball great today and putted well down the stretch for my career best 87.

I've been seriously revamping my swing ( http://thesandtrap.com/forum/thread/47777/my-swing-joelcochran ) to incorporate some Stack and Tilt elements. Saturday was the first round with it and I shot a terrible 91.  I just couldn't get off the tee.  Sunday was better with an 83 but I felt I was playing recovery golf all day because of my poor tee shots.

Yesterday things started to turn around.  I had my best drives ever on 7,8,9,11,13,14,15, and 16.  I had a popup at 12 and the nasty low pull-hook on 18 (double crossed trying to fade the ball).  I even had a real 300 yard drive: I was 213 out on a 515 yard par-5 and the tees were back.  Unfortunately, before that I had a double and a quad (both on par fives).  I had a three putt par and missed 5-6 putts within 10 feet to shoot an 84 including two short birdie putts.

A couple days ago I tied my lowest round ever of 36. Back-to-back bogeys followed by back-to-back birdies. I really rolled the ball uncharacteristically well. Could've very easily gone two-under, as I missed a four footer for par on 4, and a 6 footer for three straight birdies (which I've never done) on 8. Hit the ball really well, though nonetheless. Second time I've shot even par, but this time I did it from the "tips" (only 3000 yards )

Played my first round of the year yesterday (played a nine-hole, executive style last month) and shot a 104 (51/53) with way too many balls OB. 31 putts with a couple lip-outs.

    • I know we’re not even through the first day yet and that the guys playing well right now had favorable conditions this morning (softer greens), but the scoring right now makes me wonder a few things: - is this Torrey is as hard as Torrey back in ‘08? - are the guys that much better nowadays? - has equipment had something to do with it? - a combination of all the above?  - none of the above? 
    • Could be.  Axley's win was a long time ago;  for reference, Axley's sole PGA Tour win was Anthony Kim's first PGA Tour start. 
    • Again…you guys are really missing the point. I never said Rahm was a lock. But to ignore that Rahm had a six shot lead AND DIDN'T EVEN PLAY the final round is ridiculous. Norman blew a six shot lead. Palmer blew a six shot. But FFS…they PLAYED.  Here’s you guys’ logic: The fact that players with a six shot lead have lost the tournament means that Cantlay had no advantage having Rahm WD. Yeah ok. So what about all the times a player with the lead DID win? Huh? Nothing? Starting the last round six shots back is no worse than starting tied for the lead. Yeah. Got it.🙄
    • Yea that’s something to keep in mind, thanks. For those people who have a tendency to slam the clubs back in the bag after a bad shot, that is
