What'd You Shoot Today?

75 today, which isn't too bad. About what I normally expect, really. Missed a bunch of greens, but not by much. I putted from off many of the greens, hence the good Up and Down numbers:

Front: 36, 11 putts, 2/7 FW, 3/9 GIR, 5/5 UD, 1/1 SS, 1 Birdie
Back: 39, 14 putts, 2/7 FW, 3/9 GIR, 3/5 UD, 1 OB, 1 Birdie
Total: 75, 25 putts, 4/14 FW, 6/18 GIR, 8/10 UD, 1/1 SS, 2 Birdies, 2 Penalty

I had a few quackers today. On the last hole, I quacked one left and was right behind a pine tree. Pin back, 163 to the back, hit a big sweeping 25-yard draw with a 3/4 7I to eight feet, lipped out the putt. Previous hole stuck one pin high with a full wedge, drew it off the front of the green. Putted it from the fringe for a 0-putt.

Man am I in a bad way right now. My game is just lame. Need a lesson and/or some practice. Big money game tomorrow with a group of 8 at a LONG tough course. Tomorrow could be expensive unless I pull my head out of my arse.

today I ignored a "total wash-out" forecast and I'm happy about it for two reasons:
1.it didn't rain until I was done with after-round lunch.
2.I shot season best 4 over round.
Even if 4 over doesn't sound too good - get a load of that : I was 5 over on two holes!
1 triple, 1 double, 3 bogey and 4 birdies. Driver and putter did the scoring. -2 on par 5's, +3 on par 3's... can't wait for my new, more forgiving irons scheduled to arrive this week

Sunday 5/1/05: another boring 75 (includes a penalty for striking the ball with my practice swing... man, was I mad !!!!!!!). Nothing exciting about this round, one double, 4 bogeys, 2 birdies. Really tough conditions, temp. about 46 with wind gusts up to 30 mph.

Interesting round yesterday. I shot 44 with poor chipping and putting. However, that was not the eventful part. We were walking up 12. 13 runns parallel to it. One of the guys in our group falls down. At first I thought he had tripped. Then I saw a ball bouncing past us. The guy on 13 pulled his drive and nailed our guy right on the top of his head. At first he didn't move and I started to go for my phone. After a second he popped up and was bleeding pretty badly. Fortunately he had some napkins in his bag and we got pressure on it. The poor guy who hit him was beside himself. It was a total accident and he yelled fore twice. He took our guy back to the clubhouse and they took care of him. The scalp bleeds a lot due to the high number of blood vessels there. He was fine and I saved my par after doing first aid. Six inches lower and it could have been a total disaster.

I've played more this year than in the past 5 and my swing is starting to come back. The one thing I hate about being a single is not knowing when you'll go out. I showed up at the course on Sunday, dropped my bag off, parked the car and when I got back, the starter said he was holding up a 3some on the first tee. Run in and pay. I didn't get loose and shot a 50 on the front. The 39 on the back made me feel so much better.

Reminds me of two old golf jokes:

A group of 3 players is getting off the 18th green. The starter notices, that they're arguing a lot. When asked how was the round one of them answers "horrible. My partner John had a stroke on 3rd hole and was taken to the hospital". Starter answers "sorry to hear that, that is really bad. Anyway - what's the argument all about?" The guy says "My oponents want me to put that stroke on the scorecard!" 3 players sitting in the clubhouse bar with sad faces. Bartender asks "what happend, did you have a bad round?" One guy says"yes, it was terrible. Harry had a heart attach on 6th hole and died!" Bartender "oh my goodness, that sure can ruin a round". Guy answers "I'm telling you, it was tough - hit a shot, drag Harry, hit a shot, drag Harry...."

The one thing I hate about being a single is not knowing when you'll go out.

Never happens on my home course. Yesterday was the perfect example. I arrive at the course at about 3:30 pm. The outting that had the course all day was in the clubhouse getting liquored up. Perfect!!!

I walked in and greeted the pro shop guys as usual. Here's the typical conversation between me and them... "Hey Steve, you playing today?" "Yes sir, how's it look out there?" "Course is wide open. Have fun." I grab a cart and my clubs and head to the first tee. Never see a single soul the entire 18. Out by 3:30, done by 6:00. Just another typical day on the golf course.

Well, in the past when I used to play on weekends I would always try and get out at twilight rates - usually around 3:00 or 4:00 on the weekends. Most of the time courses are less crowded at that time. Just keep looking around and keep playing different courses till you find one that is more "open" at that time on the weekends. Well, that is what I did anyway.

But I wouldn't go near my home course on the weekends. That's when they make their $$$, cause the place is packed on Saturday and Sundays. No way you'll catch me out there then.

5/3/05, 3:10PM @Ballyowen (IMHO nicest public course in NJ), 74 with a sweet eagle on 17 (chipped-in from 10 ft off the green). Good ball striking day, 14 greens, 12 (out of 14) fairways, 31 putts - greens were aerated 2 weeks ago, still a bit rough.

My league started last night and my wife and I picked up where we left off last year. First place. She shot a 51 which is about average for her and I had a 38 (Par is 33). I struggled with my distances on a few partial wedges. I hit shots that in a month would have been close, but with the wet conditions right now were well short. Got my first birdie of the year. Finally on 8 I hit a perfect drive and an 80 yard wedge to 6 feet and rolled it in the center of the cup. I am loving my new Titleist driver. With the exception of one terrible shot, I was in the fairway between 270-305. I did save bogey on the last hole by punching out to 4 feet, left handed, from under a bush behind the green (distance control again). It was actually one of the best shots I have ever hit. I turned my 7 iron upside down and caught it clean. I probably couldn't drop a dozen balls there and do it again, but it proved to be the difference in the match. With handicaps, I beat my opponent by 1 shot and my wife beat his partner by 1 shot.

How about the 2ND eagle of the week! Had another today! 75 with demo irons and putter!

I won't stay far behind

78 from the tips at my home course (71.8 rating), including a double bogeyon the opening 330 (downhill!) hole (don't ask)... and - an eagle on 18. On a downhill approach from 175 I stuck 7i to about a foot... can't belive it didn't go in for a double-eagle. The best part of the round was, that I played a matchplay vs. my assistant Pro (scratch) and he was 2 up after 14. I went 4 under par on last 4 holes to pull it even ( birdie, par, birdie, eagle )... just to lose first playoff hole with a drive in someone's swimming pool Since it was my 4th round this week I expect to get fired soon and play even more golf!

    • The Florida sun is no joke, especially in the summer.  With that said, the trunk is a better option than in the cabin if you have to leave your bag in your car.  I avoid leaving anything valuable in my car for fear of theft and I consider my clubs valuable.  My truck doesn't have a trunk, but even then its just something I don't even chance.  The other heat sensitive item has got to be shoes. You will be on the golf course one day and the bottoms will just fall right off.  
    • @Vinsk has pretty clearly summarized the "truth" based on current scientific understanding.  We, meaning somewhere between most and all of us, need to be vaccinated out of concern for society, for every single person we may come into contact with.  To choose not to be vaccinated is to choose to increase the risk of infection for everyone you interact with.  Do you not accept that as reality, or is there some other reason that you would choose not to get vaccinated?
    • Please keep it civil.
    • You know, I don't appreciate being called ignorant, uneducated and a moron just because I have a different opinion than you.  That is what is wrong with people, just because a person has a different opinion doesn't necessarily make them ignorant or stupid or a moron.  I was raised differently.  I was raised to respect a persons opinion and just because it differs than yours, doesn't mean the person is a moron or ignorant.  It means they have a different opinion, and they have a right to that.  Wouldn't discussions be boring if everyone agreed with everyone in the discussion?  During those productive discussions, who says one person is right and one person is wrong? Also, I don't believe in most conspiracy theory's.   You have your opinion, and I have mine.  Just because I don't agree with you  doesn't mean I'm ignorant.  And you are not ignorant either.  Show some respect, man.
    • I think we like Rory and don’t like to see him struggle at times. But golf is hard and he also has been trying a few changes. First, last fall was adding distance which he admits caused problems. Second, he added a high fade to his long irons. Those take time to dial in. Lastly, there are a lot of great golfers out there.
