What'd You Shoot Today?


Recommended Posts

Saturday, June 2nd.

43-36=79

This was the best I have played in a while and if not for a bogey, double bogey, double bogey on 7, 8 and 9 my front score would have been much better. The biggest difference right now is my iron play, which hasn't felt this good in at least a couple years. My improved iron play as been sort of inspired by the "stacked swing" article in Golf Digest. While I'm not "stacked" so to speak, it got me back to doing some of the things I have done well in the past. I made a few putts, and while I still left plenty out there, I didn't shoot myself in the foot on the greens. I can't recall a single three putt and it was nice to actually have a decent amount of looks at birdie (I made two). My driving was pretty good but I did hit a few erratic tee shots that cost me. Not going to dwell on the negative though as this is the best I've felt in a while. 36 on the back felt so simple. I didn't even realize it until the end (although obviously I knew I had a good nine going). I did par the last three holes and in the past, knowing I had a good round going I would tend to fall apart.

Also shot a 39 for nine holes the day before. Different course, easier, but nonetheless I'm happy with the direction my game is going.

Shot 78 yesterday before going to the final round of The Memorial. I parred every hole on the back nine (basically) but finished the front with two doubles. It was primarily the nassau format that got me on those holes as we owed strokes and I felt I needed to birdie. The opponents played right around their handicap.

We finished the back even despite playing well. Oh well.

Shot 72 yesterday. I'm getting ready to play in the Northern Nevada State Match Play Qualifier at this course, but 72 isn't going to get it done.

I had four bogies on the front nine, but still managed to post -1. Back nine I had just as many bogies and posted +1. Go figure.

My putting was money yesterday. 28 total putts. Third time I've ever been under 30. If I can repeat this putting performance and avoid the bogies, I'm easily going to qualify.

Here's to hoping!

I shot 42 today at the same course as last time, but I had one of the worst putting days ever, I don't think I hit ANY outside of 5 feet. I was absolutely rippppping the ball with my driver but managed to shoot 6 over with 2 doubles because I just couldn't make any birdies even when I gave myself a couple of good chances (<15 feet).

The best I have ever scored on my home course is an 86. I've come close to scoring better, but one ot two errant shots keep me from breaking that barrior. Yesterday was no different. I made 8 pars yesterday morning and I was en route to a smooth 83, if only I could par the easy, short par 5 18th. I've done it lots of times. But this time: my tee shot sails left and lands behind a tree; second shot out into the fairway, topped the third shot, fourth shot for position, fifth shot over the water and hits the green but, DOH!, rolls off the back, sixth shot is a chip that rolls to the pin, hits it and trickles by about four feet, seventh shot ( groaan! ) just misses and a tap in for a snowman. Ergo, an eightysix. Bleehhhh! But, oh, the pars on #3 and #9. Ah, laddies, the stuff of which dreams are made! Some days I feel like Sysiphus rolling the rock up the hill.

I shot a 39, making 6 pars and 3 bogeys at Bonneville Golf Course (slc, ut). I had a lot of easy opportunities but I managed to Bogey the last 2 holes by missing 2 different rather easy 3 footers. I think my putting game needs some serious help, it seems to be especially shaky lately.

I shot an 83 today, hitting 8 fairways and 5 greens with a total of 31 putts. Pretty solid round, used my new driver (Titleist 983k) and it was awesome. I don't know if there's a better feeling than ripping a 300yd+ drive right down the pipe and hitting wedge into a 415yd hole.

I shot 80 yesterday. Third straight round in the low 80s. Although it's close to my cap it was a very scrambly round. I only hit 3 greens and 6/14 fairways. The lone bright spot was my putting (had 28 putts) and I made 7 of 12 up and downs for par. Still I had one 3 putt on the last hole of course. All in all not to bad but still more room to improve, I can't wait to get out again on Friday.

Played a par 3 at lunch today - took exactly an hour. Shot 37 - 2 birdies, 1 par, 3 bogeys, 1 double, 1 triple, 1 quad. 3 Freaking penalty strokes! 14 putts, 4 of 9 GIR. 2 3-putts. The greens were hilariously slow - they were mowed to the length of the fringe on most courses. Some bright spots, and some horrible miscues. Both birdies were from about 10 ft.

48+47 = 95 at Whispering Pines, down in Myrtle Beach. The place lives up to its name, there are heavily wooded areas on both sides of nearly every fairway. My driving was better than usual - I think I hit 9 or 10 fairways - but errant tee shots cost me dearly, as hitting into the pine forest was a quick ticket to a 7 or 8 on the hole.

The story of me in the pine forest was a comedy and tragedy all in one. I wondered whether I was hitting a golf ball or Ping-Pong ball, with all the trees I'd hit with my punch shots. One time, I punched it out of the left trees, only to end up in the right trees. (Another punch shot landed me within wedge range, but behind another tree.) Another, I punched out, pinged a tree, came straight back at me and ended up in an "environmentally sensitive area" which was a lucky break for me, since it said "free drop". (For my own sake, I dropped the next ball in the fairway.

Between being stuck in trees and skuling all my chips, I racked up a pretty high score.

Gonna keep playing the rest of this week, and see what happens.




The greatest thing I've seen in a while, though, I saw on the scorecard. They had written in a "par time", basically, how long it should take you to complete each hole. They regularly had rangers out to keep slow players moving, and I had little to no waiting on tee boxes (total time taken: like, 3:30, I think).

We had our three club match last night, I chose three wood,six iron and eight iron. I putted with the three wood and shot a 41. I also had a two shot penality for hitting the wrong ball on the last hole.

40+56 = 96 at The Witch, about 10 miles inland from Myrtle Beach. I did good on the front nine, only losing one ball and otherwise shooting really close to par on most holes. My driving was pretty straight and averaged 250 yards. I still struggled with skulled chips, but I landed in the sand only once (plugged under the lip of a fairway bunker, leaving me an awkward sideways shot where I had to stand above the lip and almost kneel with my wedge).

I think I wilted in the scorching South Carolina heat and humidity after making the turn. The sun came out, I lost my concentration, shirt soaked through, you get the idea. The mishits multiplied, I missed some putts really badly, and put a few balls into the swamp, racking up some big scores in the process. I ended with a long string of painful doubles and triples to end the back nine with a 56. It was with some relief that I got to my car and blasted the A/C. Not so sure if I want to keep playing - I felt like I might've died out there.

76 in super-windy, super hot conditions. Played in two hours. I haven't done the stats yet, but I had all of one birdie - the only putt I made over about five feet. At Whispering Woods, too, so that came out to a 3.0. Very happy... even though it could have easily been a 72 with a few 15-footers.

    • How? 🙂 Day 14 – Moving or Touching Loose Impediments or Touching Sand in a Bunker
    • If I am understanding this correctly, I've been able to, for over two and a half years now, move stones in bunkers, as long as doing so doesn't move my ball, same as I can do on the fairway or in the rough?   I either missed this entirely or forgot about it.   
    • It was explained to me that they wanted people to remove stones, but not to give them so much freedom that they  could just go messing about willy nilly and moving their ball. So, what they came up with did that.
    • Previously the LR caused a stone to be treated like a MO in all respects. Now the rule doesn't.  Why not?  Why shouldn't the Rule simply deem a stone in a bunker as either a LI or treat it by Rule as one? A safety conscious player could incur a penalty for being safe about a stone but not a walnut.
