I shot a 32 today........LOL Par 30 exec........my downfall was a 280yd par 4......nice tee shot hit the sideslope left of the putting green.....and kicked into the junk and I made bogey.  Otherwise...I played OK.  I was thinking about playing more but exec courses bore me...............

The back 9 was being aerated and the other nine was filled with a senior league.....so I played the exec.

Tomorrow is a new day!!

Shot a 90 on a par 70. The front 9 was a disaster, full of thin and topped shots. The back 9, though, I finally got my act together and became a bogey machine, bogeying 8 of the holes. I hit a few GIR and got myself near the pin with my wedge when I didn't. But I couldn't convert any of them to pars. Some of the chips/pitches would get me to 5 or 6 feet, but I left them an inch from the cup. (Although I do blame the darkness on the last 3 holes, all of which I chipped on to within 6 feet, from preventing a good read of the greens, it was getting pretty dark.) The GIRs were 40+ feet away and I 3-putted them. Oh well. It's only the second time I've played this course recently, and before that I would have been happy with a 90.

Cloudy/50 degrees/dark and dreary on the first tee.........

72.5cr 137slope, Par of 72


8 Greens

29 Putts

1 Penalty

4 Birdies

Score: 76

I played and putted pretty well overall, but I did miss some short par saving putts.  I even missed a 2' putt on #18 green after playing a nice chip after missing the GIR...LOL   It's always something!!!

93. Wind blowing today at 25+, but still managed to have my best day off the tee in years, 10/13 fairways hit with one of the misses being 1st cut. Horrible chipping and putting today, pretty sure I had one 4 putt in there, ugh.

Superintendents revenge tourney at the club today - shot perfect double bogey golf - 4 bogies, 4 triples and the rest doubles.

Not only did they stick it to us on every tee box, every pin was on a slant right behind a bunker.

In my group (myself included) the distance was not an issue - all of the extra strokes were on the green.

I had the fewest amount of putts in my group with 38 (normal average is 28.)

The only positive I will take out of it was my 12 perfectly struck sand shots.

With the club championship 2 weeks away, this was definitely some good practice.

I shot a 90 (par 66) on my home course today. As I was playing my round, I thought I would have been lucky to break 100. I started off decently with a person I was partnered up with. He was pretty good and I felt like our play was faster and I was able to maintain my good start. We caught up with two younger teenagers and started playing with them on #4. They were both nice guys but their play really slowed down our tempo and I felt like that impacted my play mentally. I simply tanked on #5 and #6 and had a lot of ugly ones thrown in along the way but managed to bogey a lot of them. My putting today was far better than normal and I think as I get better with my new putter, I'll improve more. Chipping was good and driving was straight but not quite as far as I'd have liked. My iron play wasn't very good today and you can see that in my 17% GIR. The sand is my weakest area right now and I absolutely must work on that. The 3 sand shots on #6 were all in the same bunker and mostly from exactly the same spot... I was pretty upset with myself on #12, felt like 100 would be my final score, and contemplated just packing up and leaving. I'm glad I stayed and managed to keep myself in good shape and finish with "bogey golf" the rest of the way (my main goal right now, a full round of bogey golf).

I almost had an eagle today!!! OMG I've only had 2 other eagles in 20 years playing golf.

A 510yd par 5. Crushed a perfect 305yd drive. Had 195 left. Hit the best 4 iron of my life to about 15ft from the hole!!!

I missed the putt by a blade of grass. Oh I wanted that so bad.

I was on fire on the front, only missed one fairway. Then I kinda lost it on the back.

I shot a 41 / 45 for an 86. (par 72)

My friend and I shot an 87 today, on a par 67.

We just took the score of whoever did better on the hole,

We used my score probably 7 times.

Beat the other team by one stroke, they were cheating though.

I started out driving great, hit the fairway everytime, then my slice returned when I lost focus.

After I started thinking again I hit the straightest and farthest shot of my entire life, too bad I was compensating for a slice so the ball flew far and straight, directly into the trees.

Played Sea Oaks NJ on this beautiful day. Sunk a 35' putt had 2 birdies which one was the on the #1 toughest hole on the course. Ended up with a 96. Drive approach and putting felt very good but 2-7's & 8-6's don't show it. Great weather & great friends = great day. -_-

Three 9 hole rounds since the greens opened up here this week.  Par 36.   Shot a 40, 39 and a 41.  My highest score so far was a 46 on the temp greens. The new gear is playing out very well, now that I am adjusting to the distances.  Sticking to one putter design (mallet) has also improved my putting stroke considerably, as the last two seasons I had been swapping back and forth between a blade and a mallet.  The straight back/straight through mallet style suits me well, it would seem.

Shot an 85. Pretty sure this was my best round ever. 41 on the front, 44 on the back. Doubled the first par 5 on the back when I had about 10 yards for my 3rd shot and the following par 3.

Still super happy!

I started out Bogey, par, par, birdie then it all went to down the drain.

My back 9 sucked, I would have at least been able to end in the mid 90's but on the 17th hole I jacked it into a water hazard 240 yards out with my 3W.  I did not think I would be able to hit it that far .  Probably my best looking tee shot of the day too.

    • Why does Rory struggle with consistency?
    • I would say it depends on how the 3W distance works with the length of the holes he is going to be playing. If there are par 4s around 430 for example I think he would be foolish not to carry a club that enabled him to get there in 2. Agree however that flexibility goes up drastically if not carrying putter and with the tournament several weeks away there is theoretically enough time to get comfortable with using a low lofted metalwood or bladed wedge. Really would be ideal to know the course to help strategize.
    • i would suggest a more lofted fairway wood or hybrid since a 3 wood needs a good lie to be hit off the fairway.  If you are in the rough or in a bad lie, then the 6 iron would be your only choice.  A 5 wood might be shorter but is more flexible and adaptable in the types of lies you can play it from.  The iron for me would be anything from a 6 to 8 iron depending on your comfort and distance.  The wedge you should consider whether you can play a slightly less lofted wedge, like a gap wedge maybe.  However, the less loft you have the more skill you need in playing different shots.  Hitting a sand wedge is easier but it does mean most of your shots around and close to the green will be high lofted shots. The putter is the one club where I question whether you truly need it.  If you can putt with something like the wood/hybrid in your bag, that gives you far greater options and flexibility.  However, it would need practice since we rarely putt with any other club. In my case a 4 club choice would be 4 hybrid, 7 iron, PW and SW/LW depending on course conditions.  I would putt with the hybrid and use that for most tee shots.  On my home course, there are maybe two holes where I couldn't reach a green in regulation with those clubs.   Essentially long par 4's where I need to hit driver off the tee.
    • Are the 512 replies to this topic about Rory being overrated or has this become a Rory Catch all topic? If the latter, the topic title should maybe reflect it. Good to see him win again. His first since 2019. 2020 wasn’t his best year and an up-and-down 2021 so far with missing the cut one week and being top 10 the next.  But that has been Rory all along and maybe what spurred this topic: his inconsistent performance. One week he’s hitting it as well as anyone has and the next he’s out of it and struggling. His talent is undeniable, but inconsistency is keeping him down.
    • I'm not an expert but the swing in the video seemed like you did not bring the upper body around quickly enough. Is it possible your focus on not firing the shoulder right away is causing too much lag there? Swing is about tempo so too slow can be an error just like too fast.
