What'd You Shoot Today?

I shot a 37 (31 Par) in my league last night. I started with bogeys on the first three where my long par putts missed by a combined 12". I birdied 4 and parred 5. On 6 I lipped out a 12 footer for par on a long par 3. I bogied 8 after putting my approach shot on the wrong teir of the green. My 30' birdie putt came up about 6' short. On 9 I hit a big drive, but a bad hop put me about 1 foot into heather where I was lucky to even find the ball. After an unplayable I put my 3rd on the green, but again on the wrong teir. I had an uphill putt, but I had to hammer it just to get it to the cup. Again I was 5 feet short and missed my bogey putt. 3 over for the 1st 7 holes and 3 over for the last 2. We took all 6 and got off our losing streak of 3 weeks. We are now 2 points out of first and have a bye next week.

76 yesterday at Longaberger from the 6900-yard tees. 30 putts, as usual, 7 greens (and at least 4 or 5 others where I was just off the green). Didn't make many long putts except one for birdie on the fifth.

Today was my best round of the year, my first sub-80 round since I don't know when.

The group I play in on (many) Mondays & Thursdays starts with two groups on #1, two groups on #18 & etc. -- kind of a semi-shot gun start with usually 24 - 36 golfers.

Today, the group I was in started on #18. I hit my 2nd shot within two feet of the hole & birdied.

Then shot 43 on the front.

On the back, I made pars on 10 - 13, bogeyed 14, then parred 15 - 17 for a 36 . Yikes!

43+36=79. Not bad. Not bad at all!

Stats: 1 birdie, 10 pars, 6 bogeys, 1 double. 5 FW drives (odd, for such an excellent round), 7 GIR, 28 putts, 0 3-putts, 0 penalties, 0 sand traps (FW or greenside).

I shot an 83 today, which was my best ever. I took yesterday off (first off day in about two weeks) and I think it helped. Golf was ACTUALLY beginning to get "boring..." and I was getting lazy with my swing...Boom - go out today and play the best round of my life.

Shot a pretty satisfying 87 - course rates at 138, so at my cap I should be around the 87-89 range, give or take. Driving is bad. Just bad. I hit one fairway, and it was off the #18 tee. I spent so much time under trees I think it's a miracle I broke 150...ugh. Beautiful day, though. Partly cloudy, 85 degrees. Can't ask for better weather.

Solid iron play bailed me out again, as well as an amazing wedge game and decent putting (33 putts). I think I'm coming around on the putting. Two three-putts, no four-putts.

Number 9 was embarrassing, though. 135 yards, uphill to the green. I pushed a 9 iron over this tree and into the foursome in front of me who was just about ready to drive away. My ball flew into the guy's bag.

Shot 74 last night. 39 - 35. I played well on the front but just couldn't finish, I missed 3 greens and made 3 bogeys. The back was a little better starting with birdie on 10, then birdies on 14 and 16, but played the wrong club off the tee on 18 and had to take an unplayable and ended with double.

GIR 13
Putts 33

Shot 37 on the front nine, then ran into the grounds crew on the back nine repeatedly. Shot 42. I didn't even play the 18th - I just gave myself a double bogey because the guy mowing the fairway never looked up.

This is at WW.

48 in my league last night. Could've been much better, but it is exactly my league handicap. My chipping was horrendous - only got up and down once out of 8 opportunities. 2 FW, 0 GIR, 18 putts, 2 penalty strokes (1 water, 1 unplayable). I won my match 5-4, my partner won his 5-4, and we won low total net by 2 strokes.

Haven't posted on this thread before, but shot my best round EVER yesterday and had to add it here. I generally now play in the low 80's but for some reason this was my day, wind low, temperature good, greens quick. I played the front nine EXTREMELY well (for me of course, I'm sure many on here can do better). My only thought at the turn was whether I would even play the back nine or take the greatest nine I ever played and go home. The back nine is the harder nine but I still played GREAT (for me again), I felt a little angry towards the end when I finished Bogey, Par, Bogey, Bogey. The final four on this course are a hard par 3 and 3 very difficult par 4's in a row. Anyway, figured I would share my stats, I'm entering in all my rounds for the year and getting my new handicap (I'm horrible for not tracking my rounds), I think it has gone down considerably from my last season finish of 15. I don't expect to play another round like this for a long time so I figured I better record it somewhere. This is my fourth year playing and this one round will definitely keep me going for 40 more!

Course: Par 72; Length 6568; Slope Front Nine 119; Slope Back Nine 128; Course Total Slope 124

most depressing round of my life...I shot an 84.

44 on the front...played terrible but w/e...

On the back, I was +3 (par 36) and it's a 485 yd PAR 5...I hit a perfect drive 250 down the middle of the fairway, and hit my 2nd shot right to the middle of the fairway to within 25 yards...I hit my pitch shot fat, so now I have an easy, straight forward chip for birdie, and the ultimate up and down for par. i go and hit the chip fat again, picking my head up, and now I have a 15 footer, to shoot my lowest rd ever. the putt misses by about 6 inches, and I leave the course in extreme depression.

im seriously not playing golf for a week (i play everyday)...im so upset right now it's not even funny, it really meant a lot to me to go out and shoot under 40 for the first time, and I friggin choked...its extremely depressing.

Shot a 76 on a par 64.. it was easily my best round ever. It's a real short course but still my goal for today was to break 90. Even though it was a 4508 yard course, i'm still extremely happy.

84 for a 19handicapp is a great score regardless of what you wanted to shoot. you should not pressure yourself to go out and shoot a certain number. just play your game and take what you get. when i play bad, which i'm actually in a slump now, i want to practice longer and harder. i'll get 3 buckets instead of 2. try to work on you mental aspect and you should be great. and i am only telling you from experience. also remember to just have fun. -matt
