What'd You Shoot Today?


Recommended Posts

So finally getting back in to swing of things after returning from my Myrtle Beach buddies trip (10 players) and whole bunch of work . Played 6.5 rounds in 5 days which include the travel days.

Grande Dunes: 39-39 = 78. Great round to start out. Won the daily bet for top net (and gross).

Willbrook Plantation: 39-47 = 86. Tale of 2 9s. Swing magically disappeared on the back 9 and sputtered home. Won  2nd net (and 3rd gross).

River Club Round 1: 46-39 = 85. Another tale of 2 9s. Swing magically reappeared on the back 9. I was 3rd with a blind partner net.

River Club Round 2 (afternoon): 39-44 = 83. Won the 2 man gross best score with mah pardner.

Heritage Club: 45-41 = 85. Toughest pin placement known to mankind on nuttiest undulating greens. Won 2nd place 4 man team 2 best scores.

Independence club: 38-... Quit on 14th hole due to rain pounding and greens basically under water, was 4 over for the day and hitting well. Oh well.

Ironwood Golf Club in Greenville NC: 42-39 = 81. Another great round to finish with - won top gross and 2nd net.


Had only 2 blow up holes (pick up at triple bogey) and 5 only DBs the entire week!   

Shot 39 on six times and a 38.   

Won about a 3rd of entire trip cost back in various tourney and side bets... :-)

I had to stop practicing and playing for several weeks due to work schedule. I had an opportunity to play last week. I went to the driving range a couple of days before I played the round. My swing felt terrible, very cramped with an over release.

I got to the course and hit a few balls and I was not able to put it together. I missed most fairways due to a fed /slice.

My last round score before last week was 88..last week's round...well...I could not even break 100..my swing had abandoned me. My iron swing turned in to an upper body only swing with flicking at the end, loosing power and with a hook.

My driver was a short slice due to not starting the swing from the bottom up.

I can not explained how a decent swing can go away so fast. If I do not practice and play for several weeks I seem to loose it...it really sucks because I just can not practice often all the time. 

I am back in the range and I could almost put ti back together...almost.  

I must have short term memory loss because what I learn over time seems to sometimes vanish.

The power was shut off in my neighborhood this morning for utilities work, and one of my nearby courses was offering twilight rates all day, so why not play a round? 

I shot a 93 (91 ESC), despite hitting a nasty snap-hook off of nearly every tee. Also, I was thinning everything for the first five holes, leading to a bogey-triple-bogey-quad-triple start.

38-35 : 73 (+1) at my home course. 3 bogeys, 2 birdies. 1 three putt

15 GIR, but not too much birdie oportunities. Only 2 out of 6 up and down.

75 (+3) on my home course. 1st penalty (water hazard) in the last seven rounds.
Lots of short putts missed, but better speed control on mid range.

Shot 106. Same culprit as always - bad putting - with the addition of poor driver play.

My irons were very crisp. I was hitting a lot of greens with several par and even a couple legitimate birdie chances (did convert one birdie). But not being able to convert those holes makes it hard to recover from the penalties incurred due to errant tee shots (3 on one hole). A stark contrast to last week when I hit almost every fairway and shot 10 strokes lower.

To maintain my HC, I've got to start scoring in the low 90's. Not impossible, but right now it seems a monumental task.

Shot a 98. Driver was money all day. Started calling my shots off the tee box towards the end to rub it in my friends faces. Irons were still inconsistent, short game I have minimal experience with, and putting distance control were my faults today.

I found the "how to flight your wedges" thread in swing thoughts the other day and played around with that on the course to good results, especially on par 3's. I set my record 5 GIR's and went 50% on tee accuracy.

League night last Wednesday.  Shot a 45 :(  Match play with a point per hole.

Was giving a stroke on 6 holes.  Won 4.5 points.

Good: Hit 6/7 fairways.  Not much else went all that good

Bad:  The one fairway i didn't hit was  a topped drive which led to a 7 on a par 4.  Didn't make any putts over 4 feet.

At least it didn't rain!!

Kittyhawk GC, Eagle Course, Dayton, OH

Always seemed like one really awful shot derailed a lot of holes, especially early in the round. The highlights included a par on the "nemesis hole" No. 8, aka the Moat Hole. It's a par three and with the wind right in my teeth, I clubbed way up to a 4H. Hit the center of the green and just missed my birdie putt. Following another par, I got my birdie on No. 11. A great drive and crisp 7I set up a dead straight 15-footer up hill and I flushed it.

 For such a mediocre score, this may have been the first time I've played this particular course without losing a ball. You'd have thought I'd score better. The old Nike PD Soft survived 96 of my hacks.

    • Went 6 days with no golf due to course closures here at Pinehurst. Played #8 today and surprisingly played well, 12/14 fairways, 9 GIR and 29 putts. 39/38 for a 77. The Groundskeepers built a snowman on the Par 5 6th. A few fairways still had some snow in some locations but the course was playable. Good to get out again.   But more snow is possible this Friday into Saturday.
    • Bill Haas could hit it 25 yards farther, but hates seeing the ball get really high up in the air. He feels like he has very little control over it when it gets up there.
    • Finished Spider-Man and Miles Morales. What fun games. The web slinging through the city lives up to the hype as well as knowing what it's like to have the powers of Spider-Man and the fights never got old. The story for S-M and MM were both very good and they got a lot of details of Manhattan right, although the map was off. Almost finished with God of War and did not expect it to be so good. Having your son along the whole way enhances the story so much. Next up will be Death Stranding and then Bloodborne probably. Going through the Playstation exclusives.
    • Does this answer it for you? FlightScope Speed & Acceleration Profiles - Launch Monitor, Golf Ball Tracking | Golf Simulators | FlightScope.com Find out why FlightScope golf launch monitors' speed & acceleration profiles are huge for club fitting. Check our sample data sets to see it for yourself. Or this? Oh, I gotcha now. The stand has some nice features, but mainly… I can note what notch creates a tilt of 12°, or 17° as preferred by Awesome Golf, or 16° or whatever… and then put the back leg in those notches without needing the tool. I can also do this more easily on uneven floors — in either direction — to adjust for the tilt or roll of the floor itself. If my floor slopes down and to the left, 12° with the tool won't be 12° and level with the Mevo+, so I can use the screw legs to adjust the Mevo+ to be 12°/0°.
    • Lineups are due today (okay, tomorrow morning) because this week's event they are playing Wed-Saturday, so you can focus on football this Sunday.
