Played a quick (1:30) nine yesterday in a steady, chilly rain. Only one on the course. It had just started to rain after a couple dry weeks, so the fairways and greens were still firm. Shot a sloppy 40 (par 35) with one bird. Only 13 putts, or score would have been worse. Hit the ball great off the tee, but couldn't dial in distances with irons. I blame the rain. Nuked approach shots over three greens, left two short.

But happy with my ball-striking, and the chance to play on a Friday in April (though it's snowing here now...).

Ho-hum even 35 with 2 birdies and a double bogey. Missed two birdies within 5 feet though. The first I thought I hit the right putt so I wasn't too concerned with the miss, although it would have been nice to make it of course. The second one I missed, I just kinda got up there and hit at it... Had two really good up and downs from bunkers though. And was hitting the ball the way I wanted as well. So, it was pretty satisfactory for me.

122

Nightmare day. Started well with a good drive off the 1st tee. After that i should have gone home.

Lots more practice needed, especially as my aim for this year is to break the 100. Not so long ago i hit a 110 on the same course, so i know i can do it with a bit more practice.

This is unbelievable. There were 6 inches of snow here this weekend. It was so crazy they actually sent the Weather Channel here. Obviously I didn't get to play. Wednesday it was 84 degrees, yesterday the high was 34. Oh well, it's supposed to get back into the high 50's by this weekend. It better. My league starts Wednesday night.

Check this place out!!!

It's located in a lush part of the Orange County called Newport Beach. Think the TV show The OC, and this would be where the characters would play. I even think they've shot a few of the panaramic views for the show at this place. $175/person, and worth every penny. Of course, a member at my course paid for me though... Some of the estates in the hills of this course were out of control. Not to mention the views of the Pacific Ocean on every whole. Absolutely GORGEOUS!

I played the North Course and shot a 2 over 73. Not bad for my first time there. Hit some nice irons, didn't get myself in any huge trouble off the tee, just the putts. Them damn greens had me fooled. Had two foolish 3-putts early in the round. Greens were really tricky to read. I missed about 4 putts that I should have made. And I mean missed them entirely, just total misreads.

Danielle of BBIII is from Newport Beach. I'll try to stay far, far, far away.

I shot 42 today in some of the most horrific winds you'll ever see, and with no warmup. Double bogey, bogey, double bogey, bogey - then I hit ever fairway, every GIR, and two-putted everything to finish with five pars in a row.

Media Guru, you shot a pretty good round in my book but I'm reletively new to playing regular golf. Just wanted to report that my scores are falling like crazy. I managed a 43 on the back nine of my course a couple of weeks ago with my second birdie on a short par 4 (which I may have reported already). I finished that up on the front nine with a 45 (and struck the ball horribly particularly on the last three holes) and yes, I took a couple mulligans but man am I one happy golfer. Things are really coming together for me. I'm starting to have some good expectations when I get out on the course.

Mulligans? Hmmm... If you use a mulligan it is not a real score. If you are simply practicing during a round and hitting a few shots from different places for practice that's another thing.

As much as you aren't a Cali person, I'm not an OC person. I don't venture sown there all that often. But yeah, If you're even in L.A. shoot me an email and I'll have you come play out at my place...

OK, OK... You caught me. I just got a little ahead of myself there. I'll not post anymore fantasy scores here. But man is my happy place nice.

I realize the rules of golf say this is bad, but sometimes I'll hit a second shot from where I hit one. I

always play the first shot - never the second, which is almost always better, of course - and sometimes I still post the round as a handicap round. But always playing the first ball. It's tough to say "Uhhh, that one might be unplayable or lost, I'm hitting a provisional."

How do you shoot 38 with no birdies and one GIR? 12 putts, that's how.

First hole, failed to get up and down, bogey 6.
Second hole, sand save, par 4.
Third hole, up and down, par 4.
Fourth hole, failed sand save, bogey 4.
Fifth hole, up and down, par 4.
Sixth hole, sand save, par 5.
Seventh hole, up and down, par 3.
Eighth hole, GIR!!! Two putts, par 4.
Ninth hole, up and down, par 4.

Granted, I was only missing greens by a few yards, and usually short and thus in the fairway type area, and I putted a few of those "up and downs," but I also sank a few 10+ footers, too. Like the one on six.

Fairways? 5 out of 7. Missed the second just right and the sixth way left. Then hit a gorgeous cut 3W to get nicely back into play.

    • No they wouldn´t, that´s why i said morning tee time for LPGA players and afternoon for PGA players. Maybe you just go early to get a good spot on 18th hole while you see the ladies end their rounds, or tune the LPGA broadcast the check out course condition.. pin placements in advance... you name it.
    • The rules allow the location of the ball to be marked using a "ball marker", or by setting a club next to or behind the ball.  Interestingly, the definition of "ball marker" requires it to be something artificial, so by strict interpretation a small stone or a seashell wouldn't be acceptable.  Similarly, making a mark on the grass, or using the trail in the dew wouldn't be acceptable. As far as I can tell looking at last year's rules, this definition of "ball marker" is new.  Check Rule 20-1 here: Rules Of Golf 2016 There's a recommendation that a coil or similar object be used, but no specific requirement other than that the position must be marked.
    • Since there is some ambiguity, I'll describe the circumstances that would make me prefer one option over the other 2: CHIP Some obstacle is present along the path of a putt (sprinkler head, tree root, another ball, or something like a kidney bean shaped green where the putt couldn't make it to the hole without leaving the green again) Some kind of maintenance problem is present along the path of a putt (turf damage, heavy ball marks, poorly cut edge of the green that could deflect the ball unpredictably) Anything over 3 feet off the green or so Basically just any unusual conditions that would increase the chances of a putt bouncing off line by a large amount. If it's just flat/smooth fairway for less than 3 feet and then a well-maintained putting surface beyond that I won't chip because it has a worse result, on average, than putting. I should probably putt from longer distances off the green, but I haven't practiced it enough to feel comfortable with my distance control unless it's a very brief stint rolling on the fairway. SOMETHING ELSE If I'm up against the collar of the rough I'll use a bellied wedge to "putt" the ball without having interference from the rough. Sometimes I will experiment and use a bladed 3-iron or a 3-wood chip instead, but I'm mostly comfortable with a bellied wedge here since it pretty much perfectly skims over the rough. PUTT Anything not listed above, which includes almost every shot where the ball ends up on the fairway within 3 feet of the green.
    • That certainly makes sense, but as I understand the Rule 1.2, the DQ penalty would to be assessed by the Committee for the serious misconduct.  The Committee also has the authority to choose to warn the player, rather than apply the DQ penalty.  In real time,  it seems unlikely that a decision to DQ the player would be made while the hole is still being played.  In real time, and in match play, the smart thing to do is to concede the putt before it can be played.
