Had our annual Red, White + Blue tourney today. Shot a disappointing 99 - mainly thanks to the putter. 11/14 fairways, 3 GIRs, 2 pars and the killer 38 putts (5 3 putts, 3 1 putts) On the plus side - only one triple. +7 from the reds (may have had a bit too much alcohol when finishing up on these holes) +10 whites +10 blues

6610 yds.  71.1/121.

79.  Putted like an absolute goober and layed the sod over on two very straight forward wedge shots, both of which I was able to still get up and down.

What sort of scores would someone be aiming for having started playing seriously 6 months ago

The last 2-3 weeks I have been between 93-96

If you started playing 6 months ago and are legitimately shooting those scores.  (I.E. following all the rules), then you are doing fine.

Well I am following the rules to the best of my knowledge if that makes sense

44-41=85 @ Saxon

Played in a threesome. Front 9 very slow (weekend golf), but then the temperature got very hot and two members of the foursome ahead of us dropped out along the way on the back nine. Played the back 9 in 1.5 hours.

92, 45-47 on 69.7/117 6320. Scores are really indicative of my overall play. I really had a few blow up holes. Started with a 4 over on the first hole *no warm up* and had 2 triples due to ob tee shots that I blocked out to the right. Just missed about 2 birdie puts and a couple par puts also. Limited my three putts to 2. Over all I was very happy with the round, just have to get my timing down and I'll be able to shoot mid-low 80's consistently, and hopefully break 80 by the end of next year. Having a 45 on the front when I was 6 over after the first two was pretty great for me. Both OB shots were on the back so had I not had those.... yeah. Pretty happy.

This was yesterday of course, not today.

74, 39-35 on 70.0/120.  I didn't know much about this course and it was poorly marked so without my range finder it was pretty much a guessing game, but I putted really well which always makes up for a few misclubs.  Could have scored better on the front but I didn't make any of my 5 birdie putts.  Still, no 3 putts and a few up and downs always makes the bogeys go down easier.

Played on Saturday 7/13/13.  Even par 35 on the front, and a 3 over 38 on the back for a 73. Played solid all day.  Made some good putts, as well as some nice up and down saves.

Shot an 83 on a par 71 course.  41-42.  Three double bogeys, no birdies.  Missed two birdie putts that were more than 25 feet and fell two inches short on line.  Hit my driver awesome, but the approach game was non-existant.  I was within 100 yards on every par 4 and could not find the club or shot to get close.  Instead, I flopped by missing the green short because I don't have a gap wedge and couldn't adjust my lob or pitching wedge well enough.  On number 13, I hit the fairway with a 260 yarder and was about 100 out to an uphill elevated green with a front pin.  shoudl have been a choked down PW to the green.  I fatted it badly and was left with 60 yards.  Hit a full 60 degree fat and landed short and rolled down the hill.  Chipped up and two putted for a double.  One shot-- perfect, 5 shots inside of 100 yards.  Pathetic.  This was a change because I usually have trouble off the tee and scramble well to shoot high 70's and low 80's.  I drove the ball well enough to score in the low 70's with just ordinary chipping and inside 100 approaches.  I left 5 to 7 strokes on blade of my 60 degree wedge.  Very frustrating round, but overall, drove and putted well enough not to blow up in to the 90's.

Played two rounds today at Palo Duro Creek. First round was a 92, and the second was an 87. This is my first time to break 90, which was my goal this summer. I was consistent off the tee, but my short game wasn't as good as it has been in the past, but I was still happy with my score.

71 (-1) in a playing lesson with someone, so I was mostly focused on him.

We played a game where you got no points if you thoroughly planned your shot, you got a point if you pulled off very much the shot you envisioned (rather tight tolerances - within about three yards laterally on your drive with the proper shape, within about a ten foot radius with the proper flight on approaches), and you lost a point if you failed to plan thoroughly or if you hit a shot that obviously cost you a shot (i.e. hit into a greenside bunker, etc.).

I finished with nine points. My student finished with four and, not coincidentally, had a pretty darn good round.

P.S. I played the entire round with a Pinnacle, which didn't exactly help me on some approaches and shorter shots to the very small, surprisingly firm greens.

That is an awesome way to play a round, i need to go buy a small notebook now to keep track. That's something you can really incorporate easily into any round.

+6 42

Just slightly off on my shots.

If i had to rank my game tonight,

Driver: B, hit some straight cuts, and then got it back to a push draw, really really need to remember to keep flex in my front knee, more. Did that on the last hole, the poor ball probably wondered WTF happened :p

Irons: C+, ball flight was solid, one really bad shot, kinda like, i forgot to actually rotate my body, and hit a nice shankish style low cut into the water on a par 3, forget that shot :p. Wedges need word, still not taking advantage of my short shots. inside 100 was BLAH.

Chipping: C-, some went to far, other's were ok, still need to get way way better, not getting feel down for distance control.

Putting: C-

Did a 48/44 for a 92 today in the sweltering 98* heat(3 days after 17 days of rain everyday). My drives and fairway game came back, so something had to go...that would be my short game and putting, With the temps in the high 90's for the next week I can pretty much play all the courses I want, when I want..well... after noon...

Played a 2 man scramble competition with my buddy Maxx. We shot a +2 38. I couldn't hit an iron to save my life, but my drives were crushed down the middle. He couldn't hit a driver to save his life, but his irons were spot on. We hit 6 GIR.

    • Last Monday I experienced a very slow front 9, taking at least 2 1/2 hours. 3 riders and 1 walking, and we, a twosome, waited at every shot, except the tee, where they all teed off before we could get close enough to ask to play through. The walker wasn't very good, often hitting his drive 100-150 yards. They all played from the blues, and the walker would tee off last. The riders would take off, often leaving the walker behind to fend for himself. Finally, after a couple of holes, one of the carts would hang back, help look for a ball, etc. When they reached the green, the walker would often park his clubs on the wrong side, and after holing out, would retrieve his clubs and have to walk back across the green to get to the next tee. Did I mention the walker also moved in slow motion? Conserving energy, maybe? At the 10th, a par 5, while we're waiting to take our approach shots to the green, the walker holes out, shake hands, and heads back to the clubhouse. After that, we never came close to catching them again. Finished in 4 hours total.  
    • I break 90 now and then, and I think I am starting to notice the commonalities. 1. Don't go OB.  Just don't.  If it's a reasonable likelihood, think about club choice.  I often play a 310 yard hole with OB all the way down the right, and it's the first hole.  It's also a little downhill.  A bad 5 wood gets me within a 9 iron or less, a good one a sand wedge, or even lob wedge.  I don't need driver on that hole.  Without the OB, I think I'd play driver, but first tee, there's just no real benefit. 2.  When driver is the club, hit it.  Closer is better.  But see #1. 3.  Get out of the sand in one.  To anywhere.  Green is better, out is critical. 4.  If I'm within 10 feet of the green, I need to be thinking up and down.  Won't always happen, but those are important shots.  And where I get a lot of my pars, "almost" GIRs. 5.  I agree with not trying the hero shot, but not wimping out, either.  Know what you can do, and go for it. 6.  Three putts are bad, but don't beat yourself up over a three putt from 50 feet.  (Actually don't beat yourself up over anything, let it go, and move on.) 7.  I have found in my best rounds, I block out a lot of the noise.  Take a breath before each shot.  Focus.  Not every second, but in the time around the shots. 8.  If something feels wrong, back off.  The grass grabs on the backswing, stop!  It should not happen a lot, but once your head is unhappy, bad things are in store. 9.  Be aggressive, but not stupid.  If you can carry 220 on your best shot, and you need 210, don't do it.  I think you need to have a 80 or maybe even 90 percent probability of success.  The two shots that failure is likely to cause eat into your margin pretty quickly.      
    • Nope. That is troll-level phrasing there.
    • Touche.  On the "no" voter thing.  But like I said... feeding the sharks.  I'm trying to find a middle ground for you guys but it seems like human lives come in second place to your need for total accuracy and fear of inconvenience.
