What'd You Shoot Today?


Recommended Posts

Played Blackhawk Track 1&2 in Beaver Falls, PA

Rating 68.8,  Slope 119:

I hit a 93 today.

Shot a 43 on the front, which is a little above average for me, but fell apart on the back shooting a 50. Not happy with the back at all. At least three times did I have to wedge it twice from within 100 yards. I 3-putt 3 times on the back too, which I almost never do.

My mental game definitely came into focus today.

Played at the Hugo Golf Club - white tees - 117/34.4 - Scored a painful 47. I'm not real concerned with the score today. This has been a tough week, physically speaking. Between working in 95* heat everyday (8 hrs.), playing drums at a 2 hour band practice on Tuesday night, playing drums for an hour on Wednesday night (Church), work outs on days off and only practicing twice this week I was really just wanting to swing a few clubs to get stretched out. Had 3 bad holes. Wasn't real comfortable over the putter. Left several putts short. I'm gonna play tomorrow (18) I believe I'll have a much better score. I love this game

Yesterday, 45 (par 35, 32.5/112). I decided to move back and play the back tees, which I knew wouldn't be a big deal outside of the par 3 distance difference on #2. I had a great round going, +2 after 6 holes. I fell apart on #7 and nearly jumped off the cliff on #9. Turned my first real shot at a sub-40 round into a 45. Extremely frustrating. The positive is I know I have the potential for it at this course. This was my first round with my new wedges and I had some great shots with them. A nice approach on #1 with the 56, awesome chip with the 60 on #3, and a great sand shot to within 3 feet on #6.

I played Juniper Hills.......Frankfort, Ky while on vacation. This is the course where I learned to play golf.....by caddying for my Gpa in 1959. I try to play here every time I return. Wednesday shot an 87 from the Blues.....6250 yds. Today I shot an 88 from the Blues.....played with a buddy I graduated from High School with in 1968. The greens were wicked fast.

Ever have a round where you can't figure out what you're doing wrong? And then figure it out on the 17th hole? Son of a bitch.

Yep... About every third trip out it seems....... On that note, shot a 97 today on a course I had never played before. Bear Creek Valley in Osage Beach. Good thing an iron was the smart play off all but 4 tees because my driver just did not like the fairway today..

Blah kind of round.  Made some ridiculous mistakes on the front 9... And dialed it in on the back.  Couldn't sync a birdie putt and burned a lot of edges... Until the 18th, when I had a legit Eagle putt from less than 8ft and missed on the low side for a tap in bird.

Had a great round by my standards. 3 over on a par 34.

I was EVEN through seven holes! Then I go bogie and double. Had back to back birdies which brought my back to even after an opening double.

Best shot was about 150 yards from the rough after a pushed drive. Landed it within 15 feet and sunk the bird!

Drove about 300 yards even on a downhill par 4 on the hole before that and chipped on and birdied as well.

Pushing drives cost me strokes, but at least they were straight pushes and not slices/fades.

I feel like I'm close to playing on a slightly higher level if I get just a little more consistent. Iron shots are great, putting is pretty good. Today I found a direct correlation between the number of pitch marks I have to repair and my score haha.

88 today on a course i played for the first time, birdies on 2 x par 4s which is uncharachteristic by my standards! 44 on both nines.

Lessons learnt.

- Dont always rip the driver off the tee, hit an iron to leave a full shot to the green,

- FIR and GIR are essential to make comfortable pars, let alone birdies

- Keep it in play

I don't even wanna talk about what I shot today.  I've seen better quardrapelegics play better golf than I did today.  Shot 55 on the front 9 and didn't even bother coming in.  I was so mad at myself.  I hit the range and practiced putting and was ready to go!  i was VERY excited and then at the 4th hole it tanked BAD.

Shot a very disappointing 98 today after an epic meltdown on the 17th that happy gilmore would have been proud of.  It was a par 5 and I hit my 3rd shot pretty close to the green.  Had a bad chip and was left with about 15 feet to the hole, first putt was pretty and left myself about 5 feet to the hole.  Proceeded to miss that and then missed three 3 footers to card a 10...

I just lost my cool and kept rushing up to the ball and hitting it thinking there was no way I was going to miss again...mad at myself for losing my cool but I think I will take a step back next time to collect myself.  Still rattled from 6 putting the 17th I shanked my tee shot on 18 and carded a 6.

I ended up shooting a personal best today. I tried to focus more on distance control instead of spin. In the end, I shot a +4 76 (77 with a penalty stroke). Also, I got a chance to try a cross grip putting style and knocked a few putts off.

I played Fox Run in Grayling, MI this weekend.  It was the first time I've played since my son was born in May.  I shot a 105, 58 on the front, 47 on the back.  Putting was my biggest issue.  I had two par 3's that I three putted and one that I four putted.  (as said NUMEROUS times....I'm new to golf.  One year to be exact)  I was very happy with my last 6 holes.  Par on 2, bogey on 4.

75.1CR 141slope

78 last friday...

76 on saturday...that round was an interesting round.  (42-34)

The first 9 was just plain difficult.  I played decent enough, but was out of position and paid dearly for every missed green and fairway.  I played the same on the back, but my misses were in better places and I was able to save pars.  I had 1 birdie and 1 bogey going into he 18th hole and then chipped in for eagle to shoot -2 on the inward nine.

another 76 today...in more traditional fashion.

    • Interpretation 4.3a/1 addresses both paper and electronic versions.  Essentially, the scale on your device cannot be enlarged beyond the limits set, and the device may not indicate a recommended line of play.
    • They are limiting green reading books to a certain "Scale" but I'm not sure how that applies to electronic green maps.  My gut tells me an electronic app is not allowed under the rules of golf but I'm not an rules expert.  Maybe legal as long as it does not violate the "Scale" requirements?
    • Nice to know, fyi...The first putt was from @ 30' so I did not expect to sink it, but leaving it 10' short was not what I had envisioned either.
    • If they're legal, and they're trying to offer a "full service platform" for a fee, why would they choose not to provide them?
