What'd You Shoot Today?

Recommended Posts

Shot my second lowest score of the year, 82, this coming at the same course where i shot 81 last week. I had a pretty solid day, only one birdie though. I didn't double and bogey that much today either, plus no triples. I actually only doubled the first hole, and after that it was singles and pars. Still getting used to my clubs though, could not hit my driver to save my life though. So i started playing my brother-in-law's Regular Burner, and I smashed a 290 drive withing 50 yards of the green. I might have to trade in my SQ, for one. But my best shot came on the par 5 17th, I hit my 3rd shot out of the green side bunker to within 4 ft for an easy putt for birdie.

Tried some safe play today for a little practise. Hit alot of irons off the tee and a couple 3 woods, and man did it work out nice. It was a little short track (par 68) but it was damn fun playing safe.

Approach was money, had about 6-7 birdie chances, capatilized on about 2 of those. All my wedge divots were landing pin high (if only I could get the spin)

Now my driver sucks. So that is dissapointing.

This morning I played 18 holes on my home course. I shot my best round of the year: 83. I had four putts which I missed by less than 1/2 half an inch (coulda, woulda, shoulda been a 79). Sigh.

9/14 fairways; 4 GIR; 1 sand save; 31 putts.

8 pars, 8 bogies, 2 dbl. bogies.

A pathetic 103 at Williamsburg Country Club. This course has my number. I hit 2 buckets before I went out and hit them all terribly, I don't know if that was in my head, but today was the worst round I have played in probably 10+ years. No pars at all and was slicing or shanking every shot. You'll find me at the range the next few days.

today was an 80 (40,40)

i didnt hit many greens, but my side green chips were great (guess that 2 hours i put in on the chipping green is paying off)

pretty lame round though, 8 bogies - 10 pars :(

yesterday i had the round of my life, 74 (39,35)

so that was fun (4 birdies, 6 bogies, 8 pars)

Decent 77 (39, 38)
Had a guy steal my ball on the 6th hole though. Asked some people that were waiting to tee off on the 7th and said he just picked it up and took off...a$$hole!
I took a free drop, i wasnt really sure what to do according to the rules, but i diden't see it as giving me any advantage in dropping in a fairway so whatever.

Shot 85 Saturday on a 71.5/131. 39 putts. LOL. Actually I guess that's not very funny.

Continuing to hit greens despite spraying it a bit off the tee but not cashing in due to the bad putting streak that I'm currently on.

Shot 48 at Venango Valley last night. Was playing with a couple of "non-golfing" buddies (one of them shot 72 for 9 holes and I gave him a hole in one on the finishing par 5. lol ). I was mainly just working on some things so score wasn't of much importance to me. Hit some nice iron shots....unfortunately they were quite a bit longer than I've been hitting them lately so I had a lot of chips coming back.

I think I've found some more problems in my swing.....the ones that have been killing me this year.

I've played only about 5 rounds of golf this entire season. There have been a few problems, and it's just been impossible to get out.

Anyway, most recent round: 47-36 - 83. Was ready to quit after nine. Not hitting it terribly bad, just making lots of silly mistakes. Was playing with my wife, and snapped at her I was so mad. She gave me a look that made me feel bad for being such a jerk, and I thought "what the hell, I'm hooking, so lets move the ball forward in the stance and stand a little closer." The back 9 was easily the best ball striking stretch of my life. I've scored this well or close to it a few times, but have never come so close to hitting it this well. Hit 6 of 9 greens; 2 misses were in greenside rough about 10 feet from the green, one in a bunker. Up and down on 2 of 3. One three putt bogey, two birdies. Missed a 3 footer on 18 for that bogey, which hurt...I guess the pressure finally got to me. But I've never hit so many straight, flush shots in my life, AND putted well AND chipped well. Birdies were on holes 14 and 16, and I lipped out one on 15--that would have been the first time I'd ever birdied three consecutive holes.

Maybe I shouldn't play any more this season.

79. (+5) (+2)

Tried playing safe today, just couldn't do it. The course I play at just isn't the course to do that. They are barely any holes that can put me in severe trouble if i Hook or slice, so I didn't mind using the driver all day.

Other courses I will consider playing safe. There is just long grass and I don't mind hitting out of that. Kept it fairly straight anyways. I also felt like an idiot today.. I looked on my Pro V's and what do ya know? A line on it to help align putting... I finally decided to use that thing and started draining a ton of putts, and got closer than I usually am.. DOH!

    • Day 6.  Played fourball, lost 2&1.  Hit the ball well, drove it much better than I usually do, putted better than Sunday but not as good as I'd have liked.   Made two putts over 10' during the round, so that was cool. 
    • In addition to the above: The idea of Tiger being in a wheelchair for months does not imply that he is a cripple unable to get around any other way, it refers to the idea that a sensible way of aiding rehabilitation is to keep the injuries stable, and keeping undue weight off them is an important way of doing so. He will most likely get to a point within a couple of months, or several weeks or a perhaps just a few weeks where he can use a combination of both crutches and a wheelchair. In the same way that he'd be crazy to use stairs when he can use a lift at a certain point in his recovery.    
    • Lots of speculation there. 😉 I don't think there have been any people who have stated categorically what they KNOW will happen. The consensus would be that the implications are dire with regard to a return to top level competitive golf and pretty much everyone hopes that he will be able to return to some semblance of normality sooner rather than later. Most people have focused on Tiger the person rather than Tiger the golfer, which I think is pretty fair and reasonable. Also, he has more than a "broken leg and fractured ankle". Those terms cover a wide range, obviously, but this was no minor accident. The topic of the thread invited people to speculate, as you have done. I think it's all pretty moot, anyway. I would speculate that the last thing he would want to do would be to be seen as a charity case or a freak show "wildcard" tournament entry and shoot 86 and then withdraw. I don't think people have said that a return would CAUSE further major injury, it's a question of whether the current injuries will prevent a serious return to COMPETITIVE tournament play which is the only thing that interests him with regard to his presence at a tournament  as a player. (I think)
    • I always laugh when something like this happens and all the interweb know-it-alls start speculating... "he'll be in a wheelchair for the next 12 months!" - over a broken leg and fractured ankle?  He will not be in a wheelchair for a year, he's not paralyzed.  "He needs to retire, no need to risk his health!" - what, given his injury history already, could he possibly do playing GOLF that would debilitate him permanently?  And yes, I'm well aware of how golf can screw up a persons body given the amount of muscles used... but still, coming back and playing golf, at worst, could only likely result in an additional injury that *might* at *worst* actually end his playing days as a competitor.  It's not like returning to golf is going to put him in a wheelchair permanently from trying to smoke a drive.  At this point, I hope he recovers fully, and I do hope that if he can, he returns to playing golf.  If not, so be it.  But who am I to say or anyone else here "no need to risk your health Tiger, retire!"
