What'd You Shoot Today?

Went out first thing this morning, very foggy & soggy conditions...and pretty much lost count after 9 holes. If I had to guess, maybe 120, but that was to be expected. The Mizuno MP 52's were good clubs to try them out for the first time, I just couldn't hit the irons consistently as usual. My drives were the only positive part of the game, the rest...just meh. Still had fun though!

Sunday,

Miami Shores GC, Troy, OH

44-51-95

Ironic given the recent discussion on short game that the wedge and putter crapped all over my scorecard on this day. Despite the horrific score on this relatively easy course, I really did hit some solid full-swing shots. On a couple of holes, my drives allowed me to hit shorter approach shots than ever before and I play this course frequently. I hit three approach shots a bit too well and flew the green.

There are no excuses for the sloppy wedge play, but I was experimenting with a putter that a friend of my gave me recently. For whatever reason, I was missing everything left. The old Knight putter will be restored to the bag for any further golfing activity this year.

The last two weeks I have played pretty good.  Trying to squeeze in as much golf as I can before winter so I played Sat & Sun.

Last week: Sat 88 Sun: 85!

This week: Sat 86 Sun: 82!

Tied my lowest last week with another 85.  That is good for me but I want to shoot an 80.

Sun I was worried with a 45 on the front but I tore it up on the back with a 37 for my best 9 hole score and lowest round ever!  5 pars and a birdie was pretty sweet.  Trying to do that 6 challenge but it is tough.  Would have made it if it was a 7 challenge.

Hope this coming weekend I can get out both days again.

Played in a balmy 45 degree day at Springfield.

39-38-77 almost a no-sixes day, but one 6 on the Par 5 number 2.  12 Pars, 6 bogeys.  Started bogey, bogey, bogey. Throw in one more bogey on 6 and then 2 over the rest of the way.  Just couldn't make a putt, greens were as slow as I've seen them in a while, but the course is in great shape for this time of year.

Shot an 81 today from the men's tees. Had one birdie on a par 5.

Hit plenty of greens, and had 6 birdie putts inside of 8 feet from outside 140 yards, none of them converted. The rest of the time I was around 25 feet from the hole when I hit a green.

Short game was good today, around 46 percent in scrambling (good for me, normally I do around 15 %.)

 

Overall a pretty poor round.

Went out on Saturday, shot 108, which I look at as an improvement, considering I don't think I've ever broken 110 before (baby steps). Only good part of my game were my drives, the newer driver I recently got (Ping G10) felt amazing and was able to hit it very consistently and with good power, the only problem was, the rest of my game was awful, ha. 

On a positive note, unexpectedly, my golfing buddy got me a Callaway PM Mack Daddy Grind 60 degree Wedge as a birthday present, which came out of nowhere. He knew I've been eyeing it for the last few months, but didn't expect getting one just yet, so that was rather kind of him, to say the least .Still need a few more rounds out to adjust to the club, but it sure is pretty!

Had an awesome Saturday golfing with my buddies.  Might have been the last time.  Was about 50* -55* out and that's good for Thanksgiving weekend!

44 front, 43 back for a nice 87!

I owned the par 3's that day.  2 birds and 2 pars.  1 was 4 1/2 inches from being a hole in one!  Looked good all the way to the hole.  Another was 12", 3rd was 4' and last 18'. 

Driver was drawing nice, long irons were spot on, wedges pretty good and the putter was doing good as well.

Tried a 2 wood (the deuce) and a 4 wood in the bag as I left the 3 & 5 at home and I think they might be in there full time.

Hope for maybe another round or two before it's too cold.

Played earlier today. First time out since coming down with the flu bug about 18 days ago. I hit a few balls at the range during that time, while using an old set of irons, but those sessions were very limited.  

Walked the first 9, bought a cart for the second 9. Shot a 91 (41/50). Energy level went south after the 12th hole. Had 35 strokes the last 6 holes. Didn't play too bad.  Just didn't have the energy reserves to continue playing my normal game. I am still way below my normal weight. 

Bright side was, I was finally able to get back out there, and actually smack that e6 ball again for a score. Maybe play atleast 9 holes this coming Friday.

+6 through 14 before light went. Really happy given that I haven't played much recently. Just had a bit of a nightmare on the first par 3, where I found two muddy lies and played poor wedge shots. Otherwise pretty decent!

Off course once our handicap season is over, I play my best round of the year...

Shot 84 (42-42, par 73) at my home course. Conditions were good for this time of the year.
Put one tee-shot into a waterhazard trying to cut the corner on a dogleg, ended up with double bogey on that hole.

Hit 7/14 fairways, 7 GIR, 35 putts (no three putts).

Had the exact same thing a few weeks ago... So annoying they don't allow any counting or qualifying competitions anymore.

Mine was a 9 hole round, shot a 3-over 39 (which still included a duffed chip and missing a put less than 1 meter...).  6/7 Fairways and 5/9 GIR.
We should play together some time.

I played yesterday morning, and carded an 85. (42/43). Nothing real bad, and nothing really good. I did make two chips for par, and a couple long putts to save bogey. 

It was a definate a bogey golf day. Had 15 bogies and 3 pars. 2 of the pars were on par 5s. The other par was on a par 3. 

We are having cold weather (for us) right now with chill factors in the mid 30s, low 40s. I am thinking about playing again today, but right now the weather guy is telling me the chill factor is 31. Might just spend some time on short game practice area after it warms up a bit. As long as I am hitting balls, I am happy.

Score was right. Just forgot about a couple par 4 pars.

Friday: 68 (-4). Hit a shank on a Par 3 with a 9 iron, save bogey.

Saturday: Abandon after 9 holes, hit a friend in the back with my tee shot. He was playing  the 18th hole and was looking his ball in the trees that 9th and 18th holes share, never saw him till my ladies playing partners start running towars him when he hits the ground. Pritty bad experience. Gladly he show up on Sunday to play 18 more holes. He was OK. 

Sunday: 80 (+8), after an 8 on hole 2 i decided that it was a good round to practice and enjoy the sunny day.

It was in the mid-60's today, a beautiful day in CO.  Went out and played first time in a couple of weeks.  Didn't hit the ball particularly well, but not too bad.  Had 3 doubles!!!  But still shot 78 with 3 birdies.  42 + 36 (even par on the back nine).  I thought my score would be higher, but when I added them up, I was mildly surprised.

    • They’re having a bit of fun… Someone is taking this too serious. And what some guy on Twitter calls it doesn’t mean that was their intention. Does anyone believe the European team thought they would win a bunch of new fans in USA, playing against USA, by wearing silly hats? 🙄 The golf is serious when they get started playing, but this is also an opportunity to have some fun in a team event they rarely get to participate in. https://www.skysports.com/golf/ryder-cup/news/26733/12414595/ryder-cup-2020-europe-turn-on-cheesehead-charm-with-green-bay-packers-tribute-at-whistling-straits
    • First name and a reference to why there in my contacts list, otherwise I've forgotten them unless I'm in regular contact....
    • The difference is that he can carry it over to the course. 😄 I can also shape shots in every direction on the course, just not when I intend to. Push-draw becoming push-slice etc.
    • Ok guys you don't get it no biggie, I still think USA will lose with all the trippy stuff going on lol....
