CAREER BEST! Played my home course. Birdie at 1 to get the day rolling and never looked back. 3 birds on the front to one bogey to play the front -2. Had 2 birdies and 2 bogeys on back for an even bac

Started off really bad... +5 on the first hole.  Had 2 birdies on the front nine for a total of 47.  On the back nine, my game finally showed up... shot +1 (37) for the total of 84.

That just goes to show...never give up until the final putt drops.

75 from the tips (6600 yards) today.  got off to a really shaky start... i don't know how i managed to only be 3 over par for the first 5 holes because i was all over the course.  settled down around the 5th hole and really got my irons together.  had three birdie putts from 6-7 feet but missed them all. :( however, i sank two 30 foot par saving putts and one 25 foot birdie putt, so i missed three i should've made and made three i should've missed, haha.

shot 36 - par 36... course was playing kinda easy, tees were forward but pins in unforgiving posistions, didn't drive it well (havent been driving it well at all) just 3wood stingered my way off the tees. started off firing at the pins, getting 3 straight birdies, 3 straight pars, and the horrible driving kicked in and bogeyed the last 3 holes, close to a under par for 9, but no cigar.

First swings after not touching a club for 9 weeks. Recovering from a broken tibia. I walked and my stamina is definitely gone as evidenced by my front VS back scores. Everything is way off....... putting (two 3-jacks), driving (3 stroke and distance penalties off the tee), and around the greens (couldn't manage even one par save). I didn't expect much, and am really happy it was south of the century mark actually.

Stats: 68.8/122

Shot 94.......43/51 4/14 FW and 3 GIR. 36 putts. 1 birdies, 2 pars, 8 bogies, 6 doubles, and 1 triples.

Shot of the day was a screaming sculled wedge from 93 yards that never got off the ground more than a foot that managed to hit the pin squarely and stop 4 feet from the pin. This was my lone birdie. LOL

I stopped keeping score after I triple bogeyed the first three holes. I regressed so badly today. Some guy stole my Pro V1 right infront of me. It was the first time I felt rage on the course.

Played yesterday - unbelievably bad round of golf - shot 101, didn't hit a friggin fairway all day with my driver or fairway wood, did not make a single par and lost 6 GD golf balls!!!!!!! Last 2 rounds on this course were 86 & 88. It's a relatively short track with lots of elevation changes at just under 6,000 yards, but slopes to 132, so you dont need to be long, but you can't spray the ball or you're in trouble. Perfect weather - mid 70's, beautiful blue skies and the fall leaves are turning - lots of amazing colours. Maybe I was distracted - who knows. Still no place I'd rather be - even with a @&$?!&@$@ score.

Haven't played an actual round in a while.  Doing a lot of range work and par-3 practice at the short course.  Played 18 holes or so and shot +1.  I guess that's decent for all-half-wedge approach shots.  Playing 36 on Thursday.  Looking forward to doing well.

83 for my last round of the season


A lot of pars and missed birdies ( sandy greens so speed was different on all holes ) and ball skidded on approaches. Shots that should of stopped near the pin skidded past 15 feet or off the green in some cases.

Have a bad case of the ball going left off the tee ( big draws/hooks )

I feel like a broken record.  Once again, I played well enough tee-to-green to shoot sub-72, but carded another 76.  (73.2cr 141slope)  The little ball refused to go into the little hole!!!

#9 sums up my day nicely: (I'm a lefty that hits a L-R draw)

#9 is a tight 522yd par5.....slim fairway and very tight 2nd shot into the narrow green with deep ravine/hazard left. A steep hillside with 3foot tall grass and deep bunkers protecting the right! If you miss left or right going for the green....you are pretty much dead.  I challenge the ravine from the tee on the left with driver and NUT IT..........My ball is safe, but I have 214yds to the pin from a poor lie. (missed the fairway by 2 feet)  In spite of the dicey lie, I go for it... My stock shot is a L-R draw, but the shot calls for a R-L fade. I go for the fade and pull it off...(proud moment for me) The shot was a low bullet 4-iron.....it started towards the right green-side bunker and it faded to the center of the green.  SWEET!!   I have a 25ft putt for eagle and 3-putt for par!!

That was the story of my day..............I was throwing away strokes on the greens left and right. I was burning the cup edges all day, but nothing dropped.

73 on a par 70 this evening.  thought i had a good chance at 70, walking onto the 17th tee only one over par, but i took a very foolish bogey on 17, and then tried to force a birdie on 18 and took another bogey there.

73 (+1) in the Wednesday men's comp. Two birds, three bogeys. 41 points individual stableford. Not even a sniff of a prize.

an abysmal 90 today.  i don't get it.  i've played 72 holes in the past week and i've shot 75, 87, 73, 90.  i wish my swing would decide if it's going to work or not so i can either go ahead and give it up or start playing tournaments.  i don't seem to have a middle ground anymore, it's either almost-scratch or total hacker.

    • We're back, and I thought I'd add a few comments on the places we played.  I want to thank everyone who posted suggestions throughout the life of this thread, it was very helpful.  I'll arrange these comments from least favorite to most favorite. Mission Inn - Las Colinas.  Our first day of golf, the layout is pretty decent, with small greens and some really narrow driving areas.  There's a bit of vertical relief as well.  But the course was in so-so condition, thin grass in the fairways, and some patchy areas (repaired with plugs and still healing) on the greens. Falcon's Fire.  A nice layout, moderately flat, decent shape.  We had the coldest and windiest weather playing here.   Shingle Creek - Not particularly demanding, but really nice condition.  Another pretty flat course, which is pretty much what I expected for Florida golf.   A lot of lateral water, but lots of room off the tee as well.  This round was the slowest of the week, a bit over 4-1/2 hours. Southern Dunes - A bit out of town to the south, this course had much more severe slopes, lots of sand, really large really undulating and really fast greens.  REALLY fast.  Also, really friendly service. Orange County National.  We played Crooked Cat first, and decided to play Panther Lakes a few days later.  Really well conditioned, ample elevation changes (not as much as Southern Dunes), reasonably demanding shot requirements, this is a really good facility all the way around.  On the other hand, its a bit of a "golf factory", so service seemed a little less personal.  Also, the practice range is a long way from the main clubhouse, so if you're going here, allow extra time for check-in and warm-up.    
    • Should be a third choice: "Meh" I read a couple of replies and did not go through ALL of them, so I might have missed a reply about an obvious issue. IF these are new members 'clogging' up the course and aren't aware of the 'rules', then that is the Club's fault. New members should have been given an "Indoctrination" of some sort. A set of written Rules and Laws of the Club relating to behavior and etiquette expected of them. Maybe even a round with an officer to familiarize them with how things are done and what is expected of them. If they are just signing up members and taking their money without any consideration of existing members, it's time to consider what exactly is the club doing to help the game.  It's hard enough during this Covid thing to even get out as a single/walk up with most public courses around here not allowing them at all. And I KNOW that people are just booking times to have them and many don't bother to show up because it's a bit too windy, or cold, or hot, or damp and many times slots go unused because they don't call to cancel or allow a single to wait a few minutes to get into an empty slot. Trying to fill slots should be an economic no-brainer for any course.  I remember a post on here or one of the other forums from a few years ago about a guy who INSISTED that he be able to go out as a single during a busy weekend and not be "paired" up because he was paying what everyone else paid. Yet, he also wanted to play through as if he was Moses. That is not a viable economic move for a business. Leaving 3 fees on the table is essentially losing money. Now- if he wanted to go out as a single, then let him pay for the 4 slots, AND he keeps his place in the line, then fine, let him.  But overall, on course behavior and Club rules are established to protect everyone from "that guy" who thinks they deserve better than anyone else. I know that in GB, many clubs limited play to twosomes to mitigate spread of Covid. It wasn't particularly liked, but people adjusted and tried to make the best of it. Lot's more Match Play to try and keep things moving to allow more people to get out there. As for around here- they didn't limit it to twosomes, but if you didn't want to share a cart with a 'stranger' they would just issue a solo cart. That seemed to be a compromise that everyone is happy with. 
    • @Esox, yeah, I can see how getting paired-up with people whose playing style and speed is significantly different from yours would be hurtful to everybody's enjoyment.
    • This season I purchased my third pair of Foot Joy Classic spiked shoes. I find they last for years, (I guess that depends on how much you play, I play like once or trice a week but not in the winter). For me they are very comfortable and I like the classic look, plus the price is right.
