What'd You Shoot Today?

Recommended Posts

58! I shot a 58!!
...on 9 holes...

Long game was out of whack, but the putter was decent (for me). Today was the first time I have played since New Year's Eve, so I guess the rust is going to need to be knocked off. The best nine hole score I've had is a 49.

First round of the year Saturday: I usually shoot between 86 and 90; I shot a 95 ( bleh ). But I take solace in the fact that I had several very good holes ( pars ), several mediocre holes ( bogeys ), and two complete blow up holes ( a 7 on a par three [ don't ask ] and an 8 on a par 5 ). If I had controlled myself a bit better on the two embarressments, shot a par on them both, then I would have scored an 88, a somewhat respectable score for me. Ah, but then, if pigs could fly......

Freezing rain sucks! It is 10 degrees where I am and we are getting 5 or 6 inches of snow today.
It is nice to live vicareously through you guys who get to golf all winter.
Keep posting those rounds!

We got another 4+ inches last night. I don't know where they are going to put it all. We had the freezing rain last week. Mother Nature was nice enough to then cover that with 6 inches of snow. Oh yeah it was 6 degrees on Sunday...for the high. The low was -2.

My wife and I took a picture of the temperature gauge in her truck when it was -2. We still had one on my phone from August when it was 102. That is a 104 degree swing in six months. There should not be a place on earth that changes 104 degrees. Ever.

This is by far the worst winter we have had in the last 5 years.

77 yesterday, which I guess isn't awful, but considering I was only 1 over after the first (and more difficult) 9, it was pretty frustrating. There's a tropical depression in the area, so the wind was blowing about 30mph, and that was making it pretty hard to judge distances well. The funny thing was that I started off hitting almost every green in regulation. Then I get to the back 9 where the wind is behind me and hit 2 balls OB. The first was a 5 iron off the tee that just kept going and going....and going....straight down the middle of the fairway...OB. The other was an 8 iron that flew 220 yards right over the green OB. I couldn't believe it. I then get to the last par 5 hoping for a birdie or eagle, as I usually reach it in two as its only 475. Get into the green-side bunker for 2 and end up with a 7. Then of course I three putt the next hole for a beautiful 77.

Shot even par walking the front nine at my home course after work (usually 2 days a week i can walk 9). 1 bird, 1 bogey, the rest pars.

Great round considering I was wearing my work boots (long day and too damn lazy to put on the golf'un shoes) and they pulled the pins when I was on the 4th hole. Just went on the course pin position for the day and actually did pretty well just aiming for the front--middle--and back of the green.

Definetly not a tough course 6200 yards, but it is tight and surrounded by trees. Anyway first time I shot even on the front nine from the tips...plenty of +1 scores over the past months since i got the membership, but no level pars until today.

Well...if you are still reading, thanks.

I shot 87 today. I played the blue tees at Baytree National Golf Links in Melbourne Florida.

It was my first time playing with my new CG4 irons.
I was hitting them with a little draw but half the time I hit them I did not figure that the ball would draw as much as it did.

I am playing again tommorow.

82 today!... ... ... But I suppose I should add that I had a drop out also. More in the interests of pace of play than an outrageously large number. brobably would have been a 7 or 8 (though on a par 5, thats cardinal!). So I'll say 89-90 today.

Man it was a great day, I went down to the greatest golf store/pro shop in Oregon (Fiddler's Green) and picked up my new shoes: Etonic G-Sok XCRs. I hit a bunch of clubs and ending up buying 2 new woods: Touredge Bazooka Geomax 3 and 5 (anyone want to buy a Mactec NVG 3+?). I had all my clubs regripped with new Winn G8's. Then on the way home I stopped at Diamond Woods and shot a 106 which ended up being FANTASTIC because I shot a worse than mediocre 58 on the front 9 which means I improved by 10 strokes on the back for a 9 hole personal best or 48!

I LOVE my new 5 wood and I LOVE Fiddler's Green which is the only store I know of that consistently beats the best price I can find on the internet. That is sooo rare these days.

Shot 73 yesterday. Despite it being winter golf season and not playing much, I actually played pretty solid yesterday. I had a couple of stupid chips that resulted in a few bogeys that put me over par. I had some moments of greatness though and made some solid birdies. Also started out putting lights out. Had 7 putts through the first 6 holes, but it turned mediocre as I expected it would.

I had one of my best displays of inconsistency yesterday. We played back and I carded 10 pars, 1 bogey, and 7 doubles for an 87. I don't think that I ever have had 7 doubles ever. At least the 10 pars were solid.

Let's see, I punched out safely into a cabbage palm, three putted, chipped onto and back off the green, two in the water...that's enough!

My best shot was 170 out with a little tree trouble so I went down to a 6 iron, aimed slightly left to avoid the branch and hit a fade pin high. It came off perfect. That one shot made my day.

    • One of the people who introduced me to golf in the first place would regularly do things that are generally bad etiquette:  try to make me mad during the round, talk during my swing, etc.  The good news is that now, when someone does things like making noise while I'm swinging my accident, it doesn't annoy me unless they're trying to mess me up (which no one has done, at least to my knowledge).
    • In OK, schools are not legally allowed to require masks, even for those who are too young to get vaccinated.  😞 I'm glad to hear that the vaccine can make keys stick to your head.  Maybe it will work on the five simple keys from a while back?  
    • And almost as if Florida is trying to double down on it, -->   Being a resident of SW Missouri, I guess I shouldn't throw stones.  It's almost like they're having a competition, except they've forgotten that LSW.
    • Day 1: Starting over because I keep forgetting to post. More chipping/pitching COVID-19 drills with new wedges. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron. 
    • My usual dbl bogie- bogie- bogie start till the back let me swing. Settled in and was 4 over at the turn after an additional bogie nullified by a bird.  Was even on the back till we hit a log jam on the tee of 15. lost concentration and bogied in. 80.  I would like to add, I wasn't having a particularly  good ball striking day. I could have easily shot a lot worse, but the forgiveness of the T300s and a good day with the flat stick kept me out of the mid 80s.
