What'd You Shoot Today?


Recommended Posts

I flirted with a +3 nine holes this morning. It was wet, and I'm in between two putters right now, so I ended up missing a few inside 5ft. Not something I do too often, but overall I managed the course better than I ever had. Kept a steady head, which helped me strike all my balls relatively well. It felt good to get around a golf course without thinning a bunch of shots and losing balls out right. Confidence booster for sure, hopefully I can keep it up.

Shot -3 68 at the Legacy Golf Resort in Phoenix, AZ yesterday with Andy Patnou and Jim Waldron.  It's the first 18 hole round I've played in about 2 months, so I'm very happy to post a score like that.  Worked with Andy a little bit on my swing recently, and attended a Stan Utley short game clinic last week which made me decide to narrow my putting stance.  I'm excited to keep working on a couple things and hopefully keep playing better!

Solid -3, 67 at my home course today. Was a bit erratic with my tee shots trying to get a bit more umph. So I was swinging out of my shoes a bit. Hit some decent approach shots too. The star of my round was my putting, 25 putts! Missed only one putt that I should have made. But, if any of you were watching the Northern Trust Open, we have the same grass make-up as The Riv at my course, Kikuya fairways and rough with Poa Annua greens. I left myself a 4' downhill putt that wiggled right off the get-go. However, I obviously made a ton of putts from all sorts of lengths and breaks as well. Probably my best putting round in quite some time. All this running low on energy and fighting a cold.

Yesterday I played 27 holes at Eagle Glen.  I'm pretty frustrated with my scoring... I felt like I played a lot better than the score showed.  And believe I just need to get over a mental hump of believing I deserve to make birdies/pars as I missed several putts from less than 8ft and a few from less than 3ft.  Ugggh.

Time well spent with my two sons yesterday!

Blew up and shot a 91 from the tips at Brookside #1 course right next to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.  It'd had been 15 years since I Iast played there, had no business playing the tips, should've played the blue tees.  From the tips it was over 7,000 yards with a 500 yd, par 4 and a few over 450, really looooooooooooooong!

It really is a nice course, and I'd actually never played it before; thought I did, but actually played the shorter course 15 years ago.  I play mostly in Long Beach and Los Verdes golf course in Palos Verdes and wanted to venture out a bit.  My buddy who is a 6 handicap wanted to play from the tips, so like an idiot I followed his lead.  He ended up shooting 86, lol, and I wasn't much better at 91.  The price was right, $27 to walk on a Tuesday morning and the greens were pure, but at 7000 yards and 6700 from the blues a tad to long for me.

80 at Lakewood Country club today, 41-39.  Not to bad, brought it back after a few loose drives on the front nine that hurt me.

The snow finally melted off the front nine at my home course yesterday, and my 5 year old was bugging me to go golfing.  We played the front nine twice.  Unfortunately I left my phone in the car for the first nine.  Shot a 42 only hit 1 fairway and 1 green in reg.  Could land the ball on the green on your approach it would bounce 20 feet in the air and right off the back.  By the time we made it back to #1 it was 45-50 degrees and the greens had thawed out some.  Number 3 and number 5 I had less than 10 feet for birdie.  missed just left on 3, and a half a roll short on 5.  Left a chip 2 inches short on 6 perfect line.  And chipped to six inches on 8.

This winter I have been really focusing on my chipping and putting.  It looks like it is paying off.

79 at my grandparents place. started off with 3 double bogeys then a birdie and then parred out the rest of the nine to finish with a 43 and on the back shot a 36. had my second eagle ever on that back nine but first ever on a par 4. I feel like my swing has always been there but now i feel like my game is finally coming together shooting an 80 followed by a 79 the next day. both days i played from the blues, 6300 yards then 6800 yards on the two different courses (east and west)

87 yesterday with 12 GIRs (8/9 on the back 9).  Unfortunately, I three jacked 7 times!  LOL.  While working on lag putting is definitely on the agenda, so is working on my ballstriking.  Was off on my hip slide.  I'm not sure if I was sliding them back on my takeaway or just not pushing them forward enough to begin with.  Either way, the net results were the same; I had a slight pull/pull-draw, so I've gotta spend some time at the range to improve that swing path.  And, this was a contributor to all those 3 jacks on the green.  While I improved it enough on the course to hit more GIR on the back, it was still off.  When you're constantly 30+ feet (left and deep) of your target, you leave yourself a bunch of 40-50 footers.  The only time I didn't 3 jack was when the pin was on the left side of the green (I usually aim for the middle of the greens).  Oh well, I still had a great time because the course condition and weather were fantastic.

Yesterday I played a little 18 hole "Executive" course close to the house.  It is a par 68 18 hole course that is about 5800 yards.  The greens are small and it is very narrow.  Used a 2 iron on a lot of tee shots.  I shot a -2, or a 66 on that course.  I had 5 birdies and 3 bogies.  Wedges and putter were on fire.  Had a chip in too.  Fun day on the course.

I played 2 x 18 on last  sunday . It has been a great round for a long time since i started my weight training at the  gym 8 weeks ago.

Here are the result for each nine  ( par 36 )

36 / 45 / 38 / 38 .

I have 4 birdies total , and missed one eagle putt on the par 5.

The last gym training with a PT before the game was on Endurance . Before this were more on weights. I got my swing back and swing much better than i used to.

    • @alexschoI would suggest a UW to fill the gap between the PW and SW. If you're a high handicap, I'm not sure you need a 58 degree wedge.  Your priority on short game shots isn't "get it close" (but that's great if you can), but rather "get the ball on the green;  within spots on the green, priority is to spots close to the hole."  But I wouldn't just now use a club that many high handicappers usage tends to risk leaving themselves with yet another short game shot.
    • Good luck.  Make sure you know the rules, of course;  people can and do get casual with the rules during non-tournament play.  Make sure you know what local rules are in effect, too;  you don't want to Jerry Rice yourself out of a tournament if, for example, laser range finders aren't allowed but you use one. 
    • 87 today at my home course.  Hit 4 GIR:  holes 1, 17, and 18, but only one in between (#8, a 4-wood into the wind to about 15', had a tap-in par on that one).
    • Day 151.  Tournament at my home course today.  I shot an 87 with 4 GIR and 7 near-GIR.  Now that I write that out, I feel my long game was better than that stat line today, but I guess not.  I did some full swing practice before the round, outdoors at the range, checking my backswing length as per my past month or so of work.
    • Secured a par at my home course's hole #17 today.  I am not happy with how long it took me to get better than bogey on it.  I hit a poor tee shot, a good recovery punch shot, then a sweeping hook 6-iron to the green.  I correctly read that the lie and setup would hook, aimed well left of the green, and swung.  Big hook, ended on the left side of the green, 15' from the pin, and I darn near made the birdie putt too. Speaking of which, I gave a par at #s 7 and 9 a good run today too.  Still no birdies at my home course this year! 😞
