What'd You Shoot Today?


Recommended Posts

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.

Went +6 on the front, and went +4 on the back. This is the first time I've played the back of this course, and it wasn't so bad.

But only one birdie..

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.

    • The Smiths should obviously never be allowed to play tournament golf again in their careers. Violence is 100% NO anywhere ever. End of story really. 
    • Worst shot. I still lose balls almost every round, I've shot hundreds of ball OB, shanks, snaphooks and so on. I have two memories of bad shots that stands out a bit more than the rest. 1) This one happened when I played in my first ever tournament back in 2006, the Cresco Invitational at Miklagard GK (a sponsored event for business partners of Cresco). It was a stableford tournament with prices also for closest to the pin on 3 hole 1 and longest drive on hole 7. We all received a sleeve of Prov1s each before teeing off on the first tee (I didn't usually play with premium balls at that time), and looked forward to finally play a round with some fresh premiums. Hole 1 (now 7) on Miklagard back then, a 165 yards downhill par 3 with where you had to carry the ball 80 yards to clear some unplayable "salad", with a crowd, a formal starter to anounce you and the closest to the pin comp....It got to me! All the 3 fresh ProV1s ended up duffed in the "salad".....I won the event though, with a surprisingly low 35 points.  2) This one happened just a couple of weeks ago on hole 3 on my home course, a slightly uphill par 4 usually playing into wind. The tee is just next to the path players use to walk from the tee to the green on hole 2, so on this day the people who just made their approach shot to the 2nd green stopped just next to our tee, well actually 5 yards in front of it and 10 yards to the right (usually a safe place to stand) and made signals to me that it was ok for me to hit my drive. With the spectators I decided to step a little extra on it and hit it as hard as I could.....I hit the ball clean on the edge of the heel and it rocketed towards our audience, clipped the top of the bag (he was fortunately standing behind his bag) of one of them and rickochetted 150 yards into to the wilderness right of hole 2. If he hadn't stood behind his bag, that would have been really ugly....   Best shot:  This one was back in 2006 on hole 2 (now 11) of Solum GK, a short par 4, downhill, into wind, playing 280 yards with a back pin location on a very soft green. I hit my driver so clean. It landed a foot left of the hole and jumped two feet back for a tap in eagle. That was a slow motion moment for me, where I could feel my heartbeat and felt like time stood still for a couple of seconds while the ball was in the air. That feeling... I've holed out a couple of times from between 50 and 100 yards, once for eagle, but this one felt better for me.  I'm on a constant hunt for that feeling you get when you hit a perfect shot.   
    • I’ve been watching a lot of Eureka . Yes I know it’s old, however, I haven’t seen it in a while so I’ve been rewatching.
    • Game 3 & 4 should be some great hockey! I'm rooting for NYI.
