What'd You Shoot Today?


Recommended Posts

I shot a 89 today which for me was very good. It was my second round for this season and my personal best last season was 85 which I shot in the end of last season. So this seems to be a good year!

Shot an 85 today, got back on track. My last 3 rounds something was off and I shot 90,91,95. Now I've gotten back on track with my goal for the year of averaging in the mid to low 80's and finally breaking into the 70's. For whatever reason my aim was off the last 3 rounds, made a post here, got some great tips and back in the 80's I went. Started off par, par, par. I hit 9 greens in regulation only 42% fir, and my putting hurt me a little today but overall a pretty good round.

On a side note, I've been hitting all of my clubs a lot longer than last year. Not sure what it is but I made some small adjustments in my swing and im driving the ball 275-300 when before I was driving 250-275 (I did get an r11 over my old r7 but I don't think that will make up 25 yards, and all of my irons I've had to club down from what I'm used to (same irons as last year) such as hitting an 8 where i was hitting a 7.

The quest to break 90 for the first time in two years continues. Shot a 92 today. 39 on the front for my best 9 hole score ever and a 53 on the back to complete a really frustrating round. I didn't even have that many terrible shots, what it came down to was poor decision making that lasted the entire back 9. Sometimes it feels like I'm supposed to stay in the 90's forever.

Shot an 82 (44 front, 38 back) at Seaview NJ bay course from the whites. Starting to pure my irons again after a couple weeks of hitting just thin (like 1/4" thin, but I could really feel it with my W/S blades). Had to re-re-re-re-teach myself the weight forward key. Had a couple drives up around 300yd, and parred the last 5 holes and survived my son having a tantrum-sulk without my game going awry.

It was beautiful yesterday. The ball was going a long way in the 83 deg heat. Although, the grass is already getting a little crispy from the lack of rain.

Had a great range session and shot -1 on the pitch and putt with 18 balls.  Good solid iron play, missed the green short on a half-wedge approach, but chipped in.  Didn't make any putts, just hit lots of solid one's to within a foot or so.  Good control all day.  Didn't throw a single temper tantrum and only overswung maybe 10 times out of 100, all drivers.

Shot a 98 on Saturday at Los Serranos(North Course) in Chino Hills, Ca.

Here's the card. Need to par more holes and get more GIR. So I will be focusing on mid to short game.

On a handicap of 20 I should do better than 97. I seem to wipe two or three holes per round so despite hitting my 5 wood out of sight and driving ok, my second and third shots are killing me. eg 9 iron from 110 yards into a bunker.

44 (+8) for 9 holes... I played OK, didn't drive the ball well, hit some decent iron shots, putting pretty well. My short game and pitch game was awesome today. This was a +8, with 20-30 mph winds and 40 mph gusts.. So i think i played pretty decent..

With 40mph wind gusts - so bad that 900 homes lost electric in Mid-Michigan - managed a 39/41.

Couldn't guess the wind correctly on any of the par 3's. Went long, short, short, and long. Sigh.

On the bright side, got to go golfing when a lot of people in the world are going hungry.

First round of the season under my belt.  Was a very average/bad round for me.  Shot a 58-59 for 117.  My putting was terrible today with 44 putts.  Not agressive at all and wasn't happy with my stroke...something to focus on.  Driving the ball poorly compared to what I have been doing at the range...still managed to hit 5/14 fwys and all of my misses were still mostly playable.  3 penaltys didn't help either....was a great day though :)

Shot 85.

Crazy round. Started with a quad-9, added two triples, a double, and a bogey by the end of the 8th hole.  Then I hit a rich vein of form: birdie, birdie, par, par, and I ended up playing the back 9 at 3-over.

I was so disappointed after the first hole, but I was really happy after the 18th.  I like it when it works that way!

I'm not sure what to make of my game so far this year.  Both my Fairways and GIR are down from last year, but I've been scrambling and saving pars like crazy so how can I be upset?  I shot 76 both yesterday and today. My scores are normally erratic, but of my nine rounds posted since april 1st, I have yet to shoot higher than 79.


My home track:
72.5cr 137slope par 72

Two ways to shoot a 76...............
Yesterday:
8 Fairways
6 Greens
28 putts
2 birdies
1 penalty

Today:
5 Fairways
6 Greens
25 Putts
2 birdies
3 penalties
0/1 sand saves

I didn't start posting scores until April because I live in the midwest, but I already have 9 rounds posted this month:
My stats so far....
Avg. Score: 76
Fairways Hit 47%
Greens Hit in Regulation 41%
Successful Saves 47%
Successful Sand Saves 29%
Average Putts (per Hole/per GIR/per 18) 1.60 / 1.84 / 28.78
Average Penalties (per Hole / per 18) 0.04 / 0.78


I'm disappointed with all my long-game stats, but the short game is the glue holding my game together.  I'm close to playing a par/under par round......but not quite there yet.  I just need a few more fairways and greens. (and fewer penalties!!) I'm playing some really nice stretches of clean golf during my rounds......but a few erratic long shots are killing me in between.   I'm close....as Tiger would say. LOL

    • 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.
