What'd You Shoot Today?

I've hit a bit of a lull.  I haven't posted anything lower than an 83 in about 2 weeks.  Yesterday posted an 87 (43/44) and that followed a +9 (45) the day before.  Before this week it mostly just not going really low (37-39) which was holding me at around 83, but right now I've just lost it and nothing is acting like I expect it too.  I'm not scoring too horribly (most definitely not happy with it, but it's not over 90 yet), but something is off right now.

I have till the 15th to find myself as that is when our club ryder cup starts, otherwise I guess I'll take my lumps.

Finally broke 90 and shot 88! I've been scoring between 90 and 100. I have so many 90's, they seem fake. I've shot 90 from the black tees, gold tees and the blue tees. I've been working on my chipping and my skill and confidence is growing. When I was on my golf trip playing in the state capitals my score started in the 90's and went over 100. Chipping was a big part of it. I came home determined to to eliminate this weak spot in my game.

I've also purged and added clubs to my bag that give me the best chance to play well. I was hitting my driver well, but I've always preferred the smaller head drivers, so I put one of my old ones in the bag and swing much better with it. I've swapped putters in and putters out, woods in and woods out, wedges in and wedges out, until I finally have the setup that is working well for me. I'm waiting on my custom Prov1 balls.

I hadn't played prior to this year for about 3 years because of an injury to both rotator cuffs. I'm well now and ready to play!

Wow Spider, Obviously I have seen your play and there is no doubt that the numbers will come down. Come back's are not always easy though. Congrats on the 88...

Haven't posted in years, but hopping back on. 

 

Shot a 39-39 today out at River Oaks in Sandy, Utah. Not a terrible day, but definitely could have been better. 

 

Glad to to be back.

Yesterday I shot 84 from the senior tees on a par 71 course.   I drove the ball poorly, chipped poorly, but somehow I only made one double bogey.   I had about 5 birdie opportunities, all from 10 to 15 feet, didn't make any of them.   I did manage to sink quite a few putts around 6 feet to save some pars. 

When I look back, it seems like I played poorly overall, but somehow I shot about the same score as always.

76. Drove the ball extremely well and hit my irons very well. Only had to hit one non flighted shot all day and that was to clear a tree with a pw. Putted decent and chipped decent. My downfall were both of those things but overall I'd take my putting today and improve my chip distance control a bit better.

38 + 40 = 78. 

Blue tee at fossil trace. That's with 3 doubles, one bogey, one birdie and rest all pars. 

I really need to work on avoiding stupid mistakes.

I shot a double bogey free round today from the forward tees.   I ended with an 82.   It may be the last round of the year.    As I was hitting my approach shot onto the 17 green, I was thinking, maybe it's time to travel south for the winter!

Interesting how I can shoot in the 70's and can't seem to avoid double bogeys  while @dennyjones can avoid double bogeys and shoot in the 80's.

"Ryder cup" format at my club" Won my fourball match alone, my partner was ill. Shoot 6 over with 3 balls in the water. 7-0 my record match play this year. Next weekend starts the club championship, hope to keep the winning streak.

Yesterday I and 3 friends played Palm Harbor golf course, which is in Palm Coast, between St. Augustine and Daytona.   The back 9 was closed due to many trees being down from the hurricane, so we had to play the front 9 twice. 

The first 9, I shot 39, which included one miraculous shot, on a par 4, where I yanked my second shot into some trees on the left.  The ball hit a tree limb, bounced off, flew on to the green and wound up 6 feet from the hole.   I holed the putt for birdie. 

Second 9, the wind really picked up, and I shot 44.   I can't really blame the wind, though.  I just didn't play as well.  

So, 39 + 44 = 83.

    • Anecdotally it definitely narrows and I would say its most significant with shorter putts. This year Ive been doing some of my practice at another local course with much better greens and the difference in making those shorter putts is huge.
    • Yes, three concussions so far and no rearrangements that I can tell. 
    • Really? Tiger is the ultimate competitor. I can’t imagine he disliked the RC. My opinion is not popular but when you’re a world class professional athlete with millions of dollars and have way above normal resources and luxuries I don’t think it’s much to ask to show some enthusiasm to play on a USA  team. Poor guys have to go to the gym at 5am? Oh, gosh that’s just awful. Never mind the millions who do that then go to their monotonous 8-5pm job. Shut and play golf.  Have Chauncey make you a nice drink on your private jet on the way home. 😳😄
    • Wow, glad you're alright and didn't suffer any long term consequences.
    • @iacas, is this a 3 or a 4 in stroke play? Someone mentioned earlier about "forces of nature" and I was wondering if that is in effect here. I just rewatched the bird situation from the 98 players on YT, and the ruling was "ball moved by an outside agency" and the ball should be replaced as near as can be. If this isn't that, what makes it different? If the ball came to rest, and wasn't overhanging, would the stroke be completed, or is there something else going on when it comes to stroke play?
