What'd You Shoot Today?


Recommended Posts

On Sunday I shot the best round of my life so far, an 82 at Redland Bay. It's given me a lot of inspiration that I will soon succeed in my quest to break 80 considering my round featured, an eagle on the Par 5 3rd, a four-putt on the first and two terrible tee shots on the back nine going in the water. I won the day as I was then off 16 but I've been slashed to 14 for my next round at Gainsborough Greens. I am determined to eat, sleep and crap golf until I shoot 79 (hence me joining the forum). Cheers!

94. I played at some country club that i only played at like 3-4 times before cuz I got invited out there. The rough was really high (seriously almost like oakmont) with heavy fescue which I was in a few times. Besides like 4 double bogeys I played pretty darn well.

Shot a 103 yesterday, it seems I forgot everything that I did right last week with a 92. I finally got tired of slicing my Nike Sas, so I went back to my old Callaway and hit 6 fairways on the back nine. I finally started to get my swing back but way to late to save the round. I am really bummed as that might be my last round for awhile as I have to go see a neurosurgon tomorrow for some work to get rid of bone spurs in my neck.

I shot a 77 yesterday. I had 2 doubles, and 2 3 putts I am driving the ball really well right now but am really struggling with clubs between 6 iron and wedge. For somereason I have lost a ton of distance, at least 1 club with each short iron. I need to hit the range and get it figured out

89 (43-46). The most interesting round I've ever played. It rained for the majority of the front 9 and got humid on the back. My driving was excellent and my putting was really poor today (36 putts; maybe due to the really slow greens). I hit my first hole in one on a short par 3 (118yds), where i actually pulled the shot a bit and it hit a hill that bounced it back onto the green. I could only see the top of the flag from the tee box so I had no idea until i got to the hole that it actually went in. I bogeyed 11 holes today, if my putting was where it usually is I could have shot in the low 80s, but really I can't get dissappointed after the round that had my first ace!

I shot a 44 for 9 holes with a total of 23 putts.

5 3-Putts does not make me a happy man, especially since I was just KILLING my driver, including being 20 yards off the green on a 360 yard par 4.

45 on a 9 holer, the back nine. Was doing real good until I hit a pitiful dribbler off the tee on the 18th, and then my 3 wood went wild right into the drivng range, setting me up for a nice quad. Two-putted every hole, which made me feel good since that's a rarity for me.

I asked the guys what the greens stimped to - this morning it was a 14. God, it needs to rain.

Shot 73 at my Father in Laws home course! Best round of the year but I really let a great oppertunity slide bye.


I birdied the first two holes and shot -1 on the front, but a tripple bogey on #13 derailed me a bit, but I birdied two of the last three to finish strong.


One of my main goals this season is to break 70, and I had it in my hands today and let it go, but I can take a lot of positive things from the round, and I'm confident I will still reach my goal for the year!!

44 in league-play last night. As unimpressive as that sounds, I was sitting at 24 through four holes and managed to play at par over the last five holes. I was pretty happy with the recovery and I managed to earn a couple points - one over my opponent and one for tying the course (net).

42 in league play last night, probabaly my best 9-hole score ever, and we were playing the harder and much longer part of the course. I had been averageing around a 49, so I am pretty stoked with my play last night. I only had 15 puts, which was great considering I didn't hit one fairway or one green in regulation. I really need to figure out the driver.

Playing the what if game, I lipped out two puts and missed another by an inch left from 10 feet.

Broke my left baby toe extreme tubing this past weekend and it hurts like crazy to roll over on it through my swing. I might go out and give it a shot anyways today but who knows, i may be off the course for a while

I think I shot what is possibly the worst 9 hole round of my life. I started out double, double and then self-destructed thereafter, going triple, bogey, quad, quad, quad, double, triple and ending the round with a 61. I didn't even shoot that bad when I was 7 years old - but then again, when I was 7, I couldn't hit the ball far enough to lose it in the woods.

It's one of those days that makes me want to quit. I didn't hit a single drive that wasn't either wild left or wild right, I hit my irons crisply maybe three times, and missed almost every putt. I couldn't keep a ball out of the woods to save my life.

78... 38 on the front 9 40 on the back

Started off by getting rushed onto the first tee by the starter to play with 2 other people. First two holes ok bogey on 1 and 2 shouldve parred 2. Par on 3,4,5. On 6 I hit a monster drive over the first huge hill... a 5 wood to just short of the green and an eagle chip that just missed... 1 inch tap in birdie parred 7 and bogeyed 8,9. Back 9 not as good 5 pars and 3 of them were saves. Overall this was the best round of my life... I am really getting some condidence with all my clubs now and a lot with my driver since I almost drove a long par 4 in one.

Weird night in league tonight, shot a 36. One ob penalty, one fairway, one eagle, one birdie, six one putts and three two putts. The three two putts I was for putting for birdies and missed and hit the cup on two and just low on the last.

I went out yesterday to attempt to qualify for the USGA Amateur Public Links Championship. I wasn't expecting to make it, but it was being hosted by my home course. Plus, I always play better when I play with players with higher ability than I.

Long story short, I missed making it by 9 shots and the guy in my group is the one that made it. I felt that I actually could have kept up with him had I putted better and avoided the big numbers in the second round.

Here are my two scorecards plus the combined stats for the two rounds.

It was super freaking hot out too

Here's to next year!!

Today I shot 36 through 9 holes / par 34, 2425 yards.

Very pleased just being 2 over in only my 5th round of golf.

Now only if I could sort out my slice off the tee with the driver and learn to hit my fairway woods.

:)

    • Hitting a ball off a root can be “unsafe.” It’s not necessarily about “safety.”
    • Most of my sensors seem to have stopped working now. I have done the diagnostic and it recognizes them, but when I hit shots it’s rarely registering. Pretty frustrating. I contacted arccos support and they sent me a link to buy more at a discount, $7.50 per sensor. I love the tracking and post-round analysis, so I’ll probably get the replacements. I have 121 rounds and about 2.5 years in on this set.
    • 4 different courses in 4 days. Three I play regularly, the fourth which was today is one I have wanted to play for the past couple of years.  Booked the tee time and was there in plenty of time to get some time on the putting green.  That was the best decision ever as these were the best kept, quickest greens I have played all year.  They had heavy rains last night and that meant "cart path only" so this meant a lot of thinking through the shots and how to keep from having to walk too much.  So how did I do - 44 front, 47 back for a 91 with only 1 triple bogie, 2 double bogies and 3 pars.  With the course as wet as it was, I quickly realized it would be a club up kind of day.  However once in the red zone (5yds or less from the green edge, you could putt at will).  While there were only 2 GIR, I had another 5 nGIR - which made scrambling for par easier.  Total of 33 putts, an all time low for 18 holes!  Like I said these greens made putting fun.  Great round and it has been a fun week of golf.  
    • Still working on getting my hands ahead at impact. Been hitting a lot of short chip shots focusing on getting my hands past the ball before the club head. It works well for short shots and with wedges but having a tough time with full swings. I’m having more luck on trying to keep my right arm bent on the downswing/ through impact with the full swing. I’m going to keep at it because I think my flip/ cast looks less severe so far. Last round I hit irons and chips around the green great but using the same feels with woods was a disaster.           
    • So this is my new “top” of the backswing.    From the hands position and the shaft position I feel like this is somewhere I really like to end up. The shaft is pointing much more towards the target and that’s something that seems to suit my physiology. I still need to get my hips deeper to make sure I can then push back and rotate more through the swing but that’s another element to work on. This position is definitely a position of power for me. The swing caddy might not be the best tool to hone in your carry distances but as I tested it against Trackman the ball speed is almost always very close (+- 1mph) so that’s the data I’m looking at and today I was getting close to 170 mph ball speed with my driver. I will be working on the speed, my general strenght and losing weight over the winter and I also decided that this winter I will hopefully be able to use the trackman enough to really hone in my pitching from the impact/spin control/carry distance. I will be doing this until the end of the season as well but I will dedicate winter for another leap like I did this year and hopefully I’ll be breaking 80 regularly next season (hoping to break it once this season but it might be too optimistic).
