What'd You Shoot Today?

Didn't think I'd say this this year, but a disappointing 81. My game off the tee cost me every missed shot today. It wasn't horrible enough to cost me penalty strokes but still penalized me enough to lead to two double bogeys. Only one birdie though, was able to stick most of my wedges on to let me one or two putt, I think I only had two three putts all day so I was pretty happy with everything but my driver.

For a 15 handicap, not sure how an 81 can be disappointing...

I also shot an 81 today, with one double and two 3 putts, unfortunately one of them was a 3 putt par on a par 5.

 I know. My handicap generally has come from big numbers, but still deserved. I am trending down but it's still frustrating to see one part of my game be so bad compared to everything else that felt so good today. I truly feel if my driver was as good as it could be I would've broken 80 pretty comfortably. To be that close with so many missed opportunities is painful yet encouraging. 

 

Edit,  this was also on a par 70 course, so 11 over is still good, but not like a 9 over round.

70 (-2) at my home course.

Really good scoring streak: 74,70,70,73,75,71,70: I`m -1 between the last 7 rounds. 6550, rating 71,2. Par 72. My tee to green game has improved a lot over 2017. Putting is still bad, but working on it.

Shot 96 on a short course. This is probably good golf for me. I kept everything in play after the 5th. Other than a single blowup hole (5 over on a par 5) and a couple typical missed short putts, I thought I played well within my ability. Irons were not quite as accurate as last week, but still very solid with good distance control on both approaches and layups.

Nothing really awful (nothing worse than a double), but always seemed a shot away from real quality. It was different things from hole to hole. Couple bad putts, one lousy drive, a few lousy approach shots and some wedges that lacked any art. None the less, my shots are finishing closer to the hole. I've made progress in sorting the shank issues I had earlier in the year.

I had to use a Group Golfer that was about to expire so I drove to Timber Ridge (70.1/135) in East Lansing.  It was a new course to me.   I paired with a twosome and we had a great time.   I shot a 44/46 but felt like I was playing pretty good.    I still need to work on speed on faster greens.  The greens were significantly faster than my home course and I guess I need that practice.   Overall a great day to be on the golf course.

No energy for the rounds I played this weekend.

Need to get the mojo back!!

41/38 for 79 unremarkable other than it was my first 18 holes of 2017 after struggling with injury and limiting it to 9 holes for the last several months. My distance is coming back I was outdriving the guys I got paired up with using a 3w most of the day. They weren't very good but still I owned the box all but one hole when a guy made a lucky birdie putt to my par.

No doubles for me and just one silly 3 putt. Left strokes out there for sure, looking back I think I made 5 easily preventable bogeys, two after forcing a shot in the wind as well as the 3 putt. We played 9-13 on the edge of a microburst that caused significant damage just a few miles south of the course.

Best round of 2017, to date.  4.1 differential.  Couldn't cash in on the birdie opportunities but made some nice lags and up & down pars so it all balanced out at 76.

There were a couple GIR's that barely merited the GIR designation, I was so far from the hole.  Somehow I got the first close enough to 2 putt.

    • Great advice Dave Thanks! Once I get done building our house, our next overseas golf trip is planned to be this area and I never thought of arriving anywhere but Dublin, my ignorance. Mahalo!

    • Hey folks I run a golf group that needs a new name.  I want to expand it to other markets, but our old name is trademarked and the guy who owns the trademark won't budge on it.   We started as Winnipeg Beginner Golf - this scared away more experienced golfers and scared courses when we booked tee times Then we became Winnipeg Not So Pro Golf - Great name but trademarked apparently Now we want to start doing tournaments and so need a new name.  We have settled on Shoot for Par as the first part but need to know if its worth adding something on the back end like am golf tour or otherwise.   Mediocre Golf Association beat me to it with a great name so here we are.  Here's our mission what would you call the organization if it used the words Shoot For Par in the title.   Our mission is to provide tournament & casual round experiences for amateur golfers of all genders and ability levels, guided by a commitment to giving back to the community, building camaraderie and encouraging lifelong health and wellness.
