What'd You Shoot Today?

Last round of the year. Didn't play stellar myself, but I wasn't too much of a hinderance to the group either. We played in a 4 person best ball (2 lowest net scores on each hole) and won by 5 strokes. It was a little awkward since I'd been somewhat vocal about sandbagging earlier in the year. Oh well, at least by next year nobody will even remember who I am. Have a great off season my fellow Canadians (both of you).

I hit a 45, on a par 5 9 hole course. Lovely course and just keep going back. Had it not decided to start throwing it down, I'd have played another 18.

TOP - HOLE

MIDDLE - PAR

BOTTOM - SCORE

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
4 4 4 4 3 5 5 3 4
6 6 4 5 3 6 5 4 5

It's annoying 3 putting. I do well to get onto the green, but putting is driving me insane at the minute.

I'm proud to say that I have went from a 26 hcp to 17.6 hcp in the past 3 mths. I used to play all the time years ago. Then life took over. Didn't play for 12 years. Just started back last Fall and it was like starting all over again. Bought some PING G20 irons and have been playing about 1 or 2 times a week. Heading to Panama City this week for golf and relaxation.

St Andrews Golf.......The Joe Jemsek Course this morning.

Played from the blues. (tips) 6770 yds 72.0/122

I played the Hex Black tour for the first time and really liked it. Didn't play all that great on the front. (Tee'd off just before sunrise. Was still a bit cold) Putted like crap all day. Some greens still had enough dew on them to give the ball a rooster tail. Other greens were as dry as a bone. Never could figure out speeds. Did manage to salvage a decent round on the backside.

Ended up with a 94 for the day. Lost to my buddy who shot 89.

Par 72 rate 72.6 slope 135 Shot a 77 for my first full 18 since taking a lesson and going through a significant swing change 3 weeks ago. I think this time next year if all goes well I'll be down to a 2 or 3.

Of course it's the end of the season and I'm finding a fantastic improvement ramp over the last couple weeks.

9 holes on Saturday - 44

18 holes on a legit par 72 course (not some short/easy exec course, probably a decent middle length/middle difficult course, on Sunday - front was a 40 which I would take ANY day of the week.  the back was a 37!!!  Sometimes there are days where things just keep going right - this time it was approach shots and putting - even the driver was good, when I missed, it wasn't by much compared to normal.  This is the best 18 I've shot this year.  I'm typically 88/89 on this course.  And it was even kind of windy which normally throws me way off.

I like my new driver.  And the lessons I've learned in the last few weeks about club choices and swing path.

practice is now two main items -

1 - more driver debugging (I'm so close and I like my new driver a lot) - I'm a little shorter than my last driver, but the shots are straighter in general - first use here, hadn't even hit the range with it.  And shorter could just be the windy day.

2 - that "under 50 yards up to the fringe" shooting - I really have no clue.  I am choosing to putt from the very fringe instead of chip/pitch and that seem to be a MUCH better choice.  but the rest of it, I'm guessing on my club/shot choice - chip it up with a 7/8i vs pitch it with the SW or PW, etc etc etc. on the little short shots (within 20 feet of the green edge) are even worse.  Lessons this winter I'm hoping.  But I played with it a lot this time and learned a few things too (hit the official shot, but then take a few balls and just try the other options to compare).

I played Rammler yesterday, I hit over 100 again.  It was my first time out since the end of July (newborn at home).  my first 4 holes were pathetic, it was like I hadn't learned a thing in the past year, then I started relaxing and hitting some decent shots.  Then at 8 I caught up to the pack.  A hole with a foursome teeing off and three guys behind them.  They didn't let me play through even though I was by myself and I trailed these people all day after.  I was getting frustrated by it even though I knew I shouldn't.

76 (par 72 course, 6800 yds).  I was even up to 16th hole.  I was debating whether to hit a 3 iron on the 17th hole because it's down hill and only 380 yds.  Against my good judgment, I decided to go with the driver since I was hitting it well all day.  Lo and behold, I hit a draw and the ball trickles into the native rough.  Ended up with a triple bogey on the 17th and 3 putted 18th for +4!

Except for the last two holes, it was a great day--4 bogeys and 4 birdies for 16 holes.

Shot an 82 on a par 71 course that slopes only to 112 and a 66.30 rating. Should have been much better though as I was +2 after 9, but found a couple hazards on the back and stopped making pars :~(

First round in over a month and shot a 98. Par is 72, course rated at 69.8 and slope rating of 133. Hit only 2 fairways, but 6 GIR and shot 1 over on those six holes. Also carded two 8s and two 7s :-(. Lost six balls in the trees under the leaves. Apparently my game relies too much on being able to find stray tee shots and being able to put them back into play. Gotta work on my accuracy, seems pretty clear that more GIR will lead to lower scores.

Par 72 rate 73.4 slope 139 Shot another 79 wich of course is good news by itself but also my index will likely be below 5 after revision( I think 4.7 or 4.8). This was my goal for this year, I started at an 8.7 in april and it looks like I'm gonna wind up 4 strokes better, next year I would like to get below 3.

I was hitting some laser beams today at the flag... My approach on 16 was inches from going in...  All three birds were inside 5ft.

I hit a decent approach on the 2nd out of the rough, but just picked a little too much club and it flew out of the rough better than I thought it would.  Ended up in the trap - short sided with a terrible lie.  I tried to dig it out, but it came out with no spin and ran through the narrow green into the bunker on the opposite side.  Walked away with a dub.  Then on the next box, proceeded to block a 3W off the tee into the lateral hazard.  Took a drop, hit a wedge to 5ft, and missed the putt.

Overall, my misses weren't bad at all.  I just failed to hit the right distance on a few holes - came up short a few times.  And then didn't shape the shot as much as I thought I would on a few.  I'm pretty pleased with today's round.  I hit some great shots.

    • After the All Star stuff tonight there was an hour long documentary (or Masterson application video, probably) on the amount of damage done to Connor McDavids knee in the final game of last season.  I'm not sure how you'd watch it in the States since it isn't on YouTube yet, but wow, just wow.    The Oilers picked up the rumored four million dollar tab for his rehab, and even still it's hard to believe he skated on opening day, let alone the preseason.   I already had a lot of respect for the guy, but after watching this it's shot through the roof now.
    • Day 16, January 24 2020.  Putting over the aluminum yardstick this evening after work.  Longest streak:  7 in a row, all 36" (at speed to go at least twice that far).
    • Got my first today! It was a pretty easy hole to birdie, but good to start it off right. 
    • I understand that.  But, if I’m striking the ball well one day, I tend to be striking the ball well for a time.  I’ll always take good ball striking over dumb luck, whether good or bad...
    • My golf season is starting in just under three weeks! What we’ll do is practice for a few weeks before our first match on March 2. Anytime we play, I’ll post about it here and on “What’d You Shoot Today?”. Also, if I have any crazy stories from practice, I’ll post those here as well. We do a lot of fun things at practice, from going out and playing a few holes to competitions on the practice green. Our favorite wager: pushups. I’ve got a few crazy stories from last year, so I can put those here too if you want! Definitely looking forward to the season. Just some info from last season: •My scoring average last season was something in the neighborhood of 48.5, with a low score of 45. Hoping to bring that average down to 45 this season. •We made it to regionals as a team last year as one of the top three teams in our conference. At regionals, we played okay, but came up well short, placing ninth out of 12. Top two teams go to state level, and top twelve individuals go to states as well, which leads me to my third point: •We had two of our team members (neither of which were me) go to states. And the final point: •I made a 10 on my last hole of the season. The last hole of regionals, with my family and just about the whole team watching. If you want to know the hole, look up Keith Hills Golf Club, Orange Course #9. Drive to the center of the fairway, then knocked one in the hazard. Dropped, then into the bunker. Took four to get out and onto the green, and then I two-putted. So, there you go. Looking forward to posting my performance this season!
