I shot a strange 43 on the back nine at Whit Lake Oaks. I say strange because the first 4 holes I was 6 over with three doubles and a par. The next two I bogeyed and the last three I parred. I actually hit the ball reasonably well off the tee. I did hit one on the first tee that went OB and helped lead to my opening double. The second double came off a skulled chip when my tee shot ended 10 yards short of the green. My third double followed a perfect tee shot and a decent approach from 220 that ended up just right of the green. Another skull, a shanked chip and two putts later double number three. I shanked another chip on the 14th that led to a two putt bogey. A topped 3 wood on 15 left me with another bogey. I missed a four footer for birdie on 16. Two putt par on 17 and a great recovery after a pulled lay up on 18 left me with a 10 foot putt from the fringe for birdie.

The crazy part is I can count at least 6 shots that I threw away. That isn't even turning doubles into pars.

42-ish on a 9 holer, match play. I won 5 and 4. Didn't take it seriously on the back nine, I am just guessing what I would have gotten if I did. I'd hit two or three balls on the last few holes, or try trick shots, or whatever.

As usual, the lake on #18 got its quota of balls.

shot a 39 today, missed like 5 birdie putts, none of which were outside of 10 feet... had a double, bogey, and 7 pars... once again shoulda been better

got a tournament tomorrow up at Oak Knoll in Kent, Ohio... hopefully some of the putts will drop tomorrow

48+47 = 95. God, I hate blowup holes. One on the front (10), and one on the back (12).

Three balls in the water lead to my 10, and a pot bunker caused the 12.

Forgot my glove today, and I was push-slicing most of my drives. Couldn't figure out why, but my hand hurts like hell now.

Played another match round with a buddy of mine today. I was 3 down after 9 and shot a 48 (including some ridiculous three putts and even a four putt for a 7). I got my shit together on the back 9, shooting a 44 and absolutely killing him. I ended up winning 3 and 1.

(The 44 is a back 9 where I've always had a mental block - and until today, never shot below 51 on.)

All said and done, it was 48+44 = 92 strokes, including an obscene number of putts. Just can't hole six-footers to save my life.

The story of a typical hole? Crush my drive 270 down the middle, have a second shot miss the green (usualy pushed), chip, and then 2 or 3 putt. I even four putted from five feet today.

Today I shot a 3. That is, three shots of a par four and on the green when a hailstorm came in and I had to call it. Last round I played was last week and I shot my personal best on the front 9 (38) then blew up on the back and ended up at an 84, which is still pretty darn good for me. Hopefully ill be out again tomorrow for another 9.

Played this morning at The Refuge Golf Club (71.4/146). Shot an even 100 (52/48) with 28 putts, 5 GIR and 6/14 fairways. Oh, also had 9 balls either OB or lost. Still working through some swing changes and not 100% trusting it yet but it feels pretty good. Course was tight without a lot of room for error.

42/38 and played like butt. Hit about one solid iron all day long. Played with a guy who didn't break 150. Ugh.

I played with a guy once who shot 199! 199! he fell one stroke short of 200. That was a long day.

And another time i played with a guy off 32 (highest your handicap can be in AUS junior) and his goal for that round was to get 4 stableford points . The worst ie done this year was 19 stableford points, and i left after 9 holes because i was sick! That wasnt fun scoring 19 points then calling my mum to pick me up because i was sick

    • I've had between a half dozen and a dozen rounds at my home course this year;  part of that is I moved an hour away in 2019 and hadn't really explored the area.  I'll probably maintain club membership there because I like the group, and I'll look for one around my new home too. I say that because in those 6+ rounds, I've yet to par holes 7, 9, or 12;  I have yet to make a birdie at the course either.  Best-ball score at the course so far in 2021:  74. Earlier today, I played my third round at a course that might become my new home course, or at least my most commonly played course starting soon.  It's the second-closest (not including super expensive or private courses) to my house, an easy drive, and well within my price range.  After three rounds, I have a composite score there of 74, with two birdies in there. On one hand, the new course is easier (lower CR/SR) and a bit shorter, but on the other hand, that's interesting.
    • No new birdies tonight however closed out my league 9 with back to back birdies at 8 and 9. Lipped out the birdie at 7 I thought was in. Didn’t hit a GIR until 7.... took advantage of them tho. Took me a bit to get going after 2 weeks away from golf.
    • That's not a good plan, IMO. Where's your Member Swing topic? I don't see one.
    • Missed my league night on vacation in Virginia Beach last week. Hadn’t played in 2 weeks. Decided to go early and do extra short game work prior to my tee time. I expected to be a little bit off and need my short game. It paid off. I didn’t hit the ball well at all but managed to post a solid score. Right out of the gate I pulled a 9 iron left at 1. Ball on heavy rough, with a green sloping away. Chipped to one foot to save par. Bogey at 2 missed a short save. At 3 I got up and down again. Caught a flyer at 4 and missed a little deep. Made bogey. Up and down at 5. Bogey at 6. Then got hot. Stuck a wedge to 8 feet at 7 and lipped out the putt. Wedge to 6 feet at 8 made birdie. Stuck another wedge to 5 feet at 9 for birdie. Closing birdie birdie got me to +1 for the side. -2 net. Not bad considering I only hit 3 greens in regulation. 13 putts for the side is good for the score card.
    • Just an aside.  Bumped into an old friend on the practice green on Saturday.  Told him I was playing at 9:20 on Monday and that he was welcome to join me.  I let him know I'd be using a power cart because of a torn meniscus. Overnight I start thinking about the guy... a conspiracy theorist, crypto currency guy, etc., etc.  Though he did sell Mercedes' at a dealership once.  How mainstream is that? He shows up Monday morning.  I hop in the cart, clubs strapped in.  In short order Jeff straps on his clubs and hops in.  I say, "Jeff, gotta ask you a difficult and potentially rude question... are you vaccinated?"  "Hell no!"  So I told him I'd pay for a 2nd cart for him.  He was good with that and understood.  Great round... had a lot of fun.  But at 6 feet.
