What'd You Shoot Today?


Recommended Posts

Played 15 holes.   No warm up.  First time out in quite a while.  Felt good to get out. Ugly quad on opening par four.  3 bogeys and a double.

Then I pulled my head out and went 4 over the remaining ten.  

Turned into a great day! #keepgrinding#nevergiveup

I shot an 81 last Saturday on about 6000 yards, including a double and a triple. Parred the #1 and 2 hcp holes, though.

Shot the best round I have ever shot today!  I am so pumped.  Played Traditions at the Glen and shot 82!  Par 70 course, I was +8 on the front, +4 on the back, birdied the first hole.  I was +7 thru 13 my best stretch of holes by far.  So excited lol.  I'll probably shoot 99 next time I play lol.

Played the same 6000 yards (5950 to be exact) as last week and shot an 82 with 3 doubles.  I should never have a double on this course. Of course, I probably shouldn't have had some of the pars I got either, LOL.

45/45 = 90.  Yep, a freaking NINETY.   :~(

3 pars, 3 doubles, and 12 bogies.  Not even a penalty stroke. I actually hit the stinkin' ball that many times.

Some days I wished that I threw golf clubs...  :-(

Played 36 holes yesterday.  39/40, and 41/43. Must have either became tired, or spent too much money with the cart lady. :-P :beer:

Ahem yes well...

46-41 no comment.  I just didn't have it today on the swing.  I also never found it.

Inconsistent.

Took 8 on a 539 five afte being almost pin high in two.

Nothing felt right today.  Golf is hard.

37/41=78

One double, one birdie.  Only hit 3 actual greens, but most of the misses were NGIR and my short game was pretty tight.  

Nothing spectacular, but it beats the hell out of my prior 90...

New personal best, and in a way I'm angry at myself about it.  Shot a 72.  38 on the front 2 birdies, 4 bogies, 3 pars.  Come into the back and catch fire, chip in birdie on 10, eagle 11, chip in birdie on 12, bogey on 13, 10 foot putt for birdie on 14, bogey on 15, par on 16, 12 footer for birdie on 17, and am sitting on the green after one on the par 3 18th.

So it looks really good for shooting at worst a 71 and breaking par for the first time ever.  First putt hit it up too high and a bit too hard (truly a pretty bad lag putt) 8 foot putt for par.  Hit it about 3 feet past on the par putt (greens are drying out from the morning, but still a terrible putt), and finally lip out the bogey putt and mop up for an infuriating 4 putt for double bogey.  Extremely happy with the 72, but wanted to snap my putter in half after 4 putting 18.

38 / 34 - 72

6 birdies

1 eagle

4 pars

6 bogies

1 double bogey.

I had a lesson this morning, followed immediately by the lowest round I have shot in 5 years(82). When I took a 2 year Hiatus, I apparently forgot that I have something called a lower body and that it is the base of your swing. The pro's analogy for the proper motion and weight transfer was spot on. He likened it to throwing a baseball sidearm. Immediate 1.5 clubs of distance with 1/4 the effort.

Shot a 92 from the short tees. It was a solo round so it can't be applied to my HC.

Of the 4 holes I used the driver for, I lost 5 strokes from that club. I'm working on a change at the range and it didn't go well on the course today.  Also landed in sand twice and I don't get out of GS bunkers in one shot - ever. So those two things need work.

Irons were not that crisp until the 2nd nine after making an adjustment, but they were flying straight. Short game and putting were above average as I scored more pars than I hit GIR (one of which resulted in bogey) - the opposite of what is normal. The nGIR were very close and mostly on the sides of where the holes were.

For the last 4 or 5 holes, the game became pretty easy - something I haven't been used to much this year.

Next week won't be like today, but it's nice to experience rounds like this now and then.

Had a early tee time this morning. Hooked up with another walk on walker.

Shot an 87 in perfect weather conditions. Hit mostly decent shots, but a couple double bogies, and triple on a par 3,  did not do my score much good. 

Not going complain, or otherwise feel poorly about this humbling round. I was above ground, having a nice morning walk, breathing on my own, enjoying the early morning wildlife, with a new found,  tourist friend from Oregon. 

Tomorrow I will break 80. :dance:

48 - 44 = 92. Played solo, so at least that one doesn't get entered into the handicap calculation. Thank you USGA. Teed off at 10:30. Home by 1:30. Was glad to be done with that round.

79 which I was very happy with on a tough private Desert Course I have never played before. With some better putting and minus 2 wild tee shots, I could have challenged PAR.

10 strokes worse than yesterday, honestly after shooting even par yesterday it could have been a bigger letdown.  82.

43 / 39.  Struggled with the putter all day, and unfortunately tripled number 10 (push sliced a 4 iron out of bounds) which meant playing the next 8 holes at even par was not good enough to break 80.  On the bright side of things, I finally got an eagle on short par 4 17th of my home course (the hole in my avatar pic).  Its not really difficult to drive as its only about 280 yards way downhill, but I keep missing the eagle putts.  Not today, finally sunk one, 25 footer up the hill with about 6 inches of break.  Pretty much the only putt that I made all day though.

Played 9 more after that on the front.  Shot a 39, 6 pars, 3 bogies.  Still didn't make any putts and 3 putted 7 from about 25 feet out for one of the bogies.  Outside of the putter the short game was good, nearly holed out a bunker shot on the first hole and nearly holed out a chip for birdie on the last hole.  Hit the pin with both shots, just a bit too firm to drop.

Played two rounds this past weekend. Shot a 91 and an 86. Very similar games but the 91 came from 4 penalties from going OB. 

Finally fixed my slice on my drives (standing too far forward in my stance) and added 20 yards to my 5 wood (got on the green in 2 on the par 5s). I missed too many greens from well struck but poorly aimed approach shots and couldn't recover with my chipping. I did sink an amazing 25 footer uphill that saved par and I had a tap in birdie after barely missing a 20 foot eagle putt. Nonetheless, very happy with my game but gotta go work on chipping.

I shot a 97 in the outing yesterday. As bad as that number was I wasn't horribly upset with it. Biggest single issue was my putting, I averaged over 2 ppg. I messed up other places but this is the one place I don't expect to mess up like this anymore so it stood at as the main problem to me. Following what seems to be a theme for me I did worse on the front than the back, +16 vs +9. No pars and 2 triples on the front with 2 pars and only 2 doubles on the back. The course isn't rated particularly difficult at 71.5/124 and only played 6600 yards. Given how little I've played in general this year I am not disappointed in how it went. At least my drives weren't too bad for the most part, even hit 50% fairways which is just short of a miracle for me. Unfortunately I did not follow those up with many GiR at all. Oh well.

Played Saturday and Sunday.  Saturday - 45 on the front 9 - 37 on the back nine for a total of 82.  Tough course though...

Played an easier course on Sunday - 39 on the front nine and 35 on the back nine.  Had three birdies and one eagle.  Had one double bogey. 

The eagle was one of the best shots I have hit in my life.  Short par 4 about 280 yards over some water.  I usually lay up on the hole with an 8 iron.  I was hitting my driver pretty well all day so I decided to give it a go at the green as the pin was in a favorable position.  I choked down a little on the driver so I could make sure I could work the ball from left to right.  Hit a beautiful shot, landed about 10 feet in front of the pin and rolled right next to the cup for a tap-in eagle.   Below is the final result of where my ball ended up.  Never had a hole in one before, this would have been an awesome one to get...on a par 4...just like Happy Gilmore..

    • 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.
