What'd You Shoot Today?

I shot a 42 today on 9 holes, with a nice bag fat 7 to end my day. Driving's still bad - 1 fairway (but at least all the others were still in play, not lost/unplayable.) . Iron play's good, though, because I still got 5 greens, as well as an up and down from 160 yards to save par on the first hole. Putting's getting there, with 15 putts.

Number 9 was a disaster, as usual. I usually hit 3 iron to the dog leg left instead of cutting the corner...but I was thinking birdie all the way to break 40. Mistake...drive not only cuts the corner but lands in the trees on the far side in a really bad downhill lie. Second shot, topper. Third, pushed into a tree, came back at me. Fourth shot, topper. Fifth onto the fringe, and then two-putted. Ugh. It's also the same hole where I put a ball into a guy's bag yesterday.

Played a very low quality golf course, shot 3 over 36, had 3 chances for eagle. Didnt really play that well considering i only had 4 clubs.

Played nine holes today par was 36 and shot 55 over. First time on this course so for a rookie player I'm happy. The second hole was a par 5 that I went 5 over, when I walked away from the green all I could do was shake my head in dissapair. Everything was great from the drive to the iron play but when it came time for the short game, it was all down hill from there. That hole awaits me for another day.

Shot a 48 on the front & 50 on the back at the Meadows of Six Mile creek today. 1st time on this course & I am used to fairways which are a lot wider & every green on this course is undulating.

Last night, I played a twilight round after some morning practice. I shot a +10 on the front and a +13 on the back for a +23, 95. My first time breaking 100!

In addition to playing well, I played consistently. My worst score was a single triple bogey, and on a hole I usually par (17). Part of that is that our group got to the 17th tee box with precious little sunlight left, and we wanted to finish. There was some serious slow play ahead of us for the first 14 holes, but the group must've gotten bored and left or something... we played the last 5 holes in just under an hour with no one ahead of us.

Regardless, I'm very happy with my score. I'm thinking I'll go play today to celebrate.

I backed up yesterday's 95 with a 92 today. This time, it was 3 pars, 2 doubles, 1 triple, and the rest standard bogeys. I even bogeyed the handicap 1 & 3 holes and parred - parred! - the 4HCP. And the triple was on HCP2, but eh.

Shot a 42 on the back 9 at White Lake Oaks. My brother and I went out early with nobody ahead of us. We moved back to the back tees to try and get ready for our golf trip in August. I hit the ball reasonably well and putted fine. I had a blow up tripple on 13, but finished bogey, par, par, par, bogey with a lost ball off the tee on 18.

78 yesterday - 40 & 38. Started off with a double and basically was 6 over through 7 holes. Remembered a lesson I had (with a softball bat) from Mike Miller, who coaches Jason Gore. Started setting my hands better and the irons became much more dialed in. Putted decent too.

76 at Whispering Woods today. My official handicap is now 3.1, but my unofficial one (which I keep in my Scorecard software on my computer) is 3.0. better yet, my anti-handicap (worst 10 of last 20 rounds) is only 6.0, which ain't too shabby.

The difference between the two is that I don't put courses into Scorecard if I only play them one time. I should, though - it's easy enough to do.

Yesterday I was Jeckyl and Hyde.......48-37 = 85. I let too many bad shots turn into second and third bad shots on the 1st 7 holes, and on 8 tee I said to myself I need to get over it and par-out.....almost did, I was 2 over on the last 11 holes.

44 on a 9 holer - back side of The Willows. Par 3's destroyed me - doubled them both, but parred both par 5's and a handful of the par 4's. I played with a buddy of mine who didn't plan on golfing today - so he lifted weights that morning, and his golf swing was...gone. I think if we played 18 he would have shot his cholesterol count, or worse. (He had an 88 after 9...we decided to call it quits by then.)

You should put all the courses you've played this year in the Scorecard record so you get a true handicap tracking for the year. If your keeping only a couple of courses you play most of the time it won't be a true show of how well your playing. The more you play the same course you learn where and how to best play certain holes. such as you may have a hole you know it's better to be in the right rough than the left side of the fairway so you have a better shot at the green.

    • Day 38-41 Continued to work on rotation and weight shift drills through the middle/end of the week. Today I took my mom golfing as a belated Mother's Day gift. Also brought my son along for his first round ever. Played a par 3 course. Shot one-under. Which I'm pretty proud of given that it was a SLOW round with a 5 year old. Struck the ball really well, and putting was solid. All the work I put in putting has definitely paid off. Back to the days when I was automatic from 5 feet and in.  Was really proud of the little guy. He didn't once show any signs of mental fatigue or boredom. He even got a round of applause from a group of 8 guys after his tee shot on the last hole.  And no, we weren't holding up play. This particular course has added a soccer type course that runs in tandem with their traditional 9-hole par 3 course. Kind of interesting and hadn't seen anything like that before. Essentially 18 holes with a soccer ball. Where the "hole" is essentially a 55 gallon drum embedded in the ground. 
    • Day 126: Some priority piece practice and then a bit of short game practice. 
    • Day 163 (21 May 22) - left foot, skin breakdown again. Did some lag drills with the putter using heads up technique.  
    • Day 76.  Qualifier (stroke play) for my club's match play tournament.  Shot an 86 and qualified    Also in happy news:  my putting.  No, I didn't make many more putts, but I did miss in a lot better places.  My missed putts from long range are closer and my missed putts from 3-15' are typically going past the hole but leaving me with a tap-in (instead of 1-2').  I think this is a result of more putting practice and means the skill is improving because my misses are smaller.
