What'd You Shoot Today?

Recommended Posts

Today was an ugly cold damp day following heavy rain so the course was sloppy wet......... temps were in the 50s.   I figured the course wouldn't be busy, so I had to play!!!  Tee'd off just late enough to allow for a 3hr round before dark......

Drumm Farm GC:  Par72  72.5CR 137slope 6564yds


The yardage played more like 7500yds than 6500yds!!........LOL...I had a few long approaches!!!   No roll coupled with damp cold air made the course play stupid long.

Fairways: 10/14

Greens: 6

Putts: 31

Birdies: 1

Penalties: 1

I hit solid golf shots and hit the first 2 GIR,  but left myself difficult putts and 3-putted them both!!  AAaaaaarghhh!!!!   Starting cold without hitting a practice putt probably played a role, but I accept this for what it is and accept the result.  Beyond needing 6 putts on the first two greens, the rest of the day showed continued spring progress.   Once the course firms up and gets into pristine condition, I'll be firing on all cylinders.

Three competitions into the new season two in the buffer zone and then -4 ( to Hcp ) dropped two shots on 17 and 18 which was trying to keep the round together..........something to work on in the future!

Finally got out and hit a bucket of balls.  Had a wonderful evening!  Should be doing the same tonight and hopefully going to the course this weekend!

86.  ...but it felt more like a 96 because I just couldn't get the driver working...

On the positive side, I played quickly, finished in about 2:15, and I don't think anyone notice me show up late to work.

Played my first "round" of the year today other than a par 3 course. 9 holes (par was 35) and I shot 42!....using 2 balls and playing best ball with myself. That's still pretty good for me though.

And lest anyone think I was not following proper etiquette by playing 2 balls, I was the only one on the course. It was a 9 hole municipal course and it has been raining here for days. The course hasn't been mowed in a week and the guy in the pro shop told me not to worry about paying because it wouldn't be right to charge me with the course in that condition.

So I got to play for free and as the only person on the course. The fairways were like hitting out of the rough, but it was the most stress free and enjoyable golf I have ever played.

41-39/80  2 birdies,8 pars, 6 bogies,2 doubles. Had 2 double bogies on the front nine, dunked one in the water on the third and fluffed a chip on the ninth, so was close to my goal today of breaking 80. need to eliminate the doubles and I might succeed.

My game is definitely improving and the winter rust is falling away............

Drumm Farm GC:  Par72  72.5CR 137slope 6564yds

36 -38=74

Fairways: 7/14

Greens: 9

Putts: 27

SSaves: 1/1

4 Birdies

Penalties: 1  .......but I made a nice bogey save

I also had 2 zero putts! Those don't SUKK!!!  I holed-out from a 7-8ft deep greenside bunker after hitting a horrible approach to get there.......LOL    The other was a simple chip-run.  I feel like I'm starting to get my MOJO back and I LIKE IT!    I had one stupid double-B that I'd like to forget, but that's besides the point!  Hahaha

I wanted to play today, but was invited by my best golf partner, John, for the last 25+ years to go to the range. You see, last February 19 John had his hip replaced, and this was the first day that he hit balls since the operation. He hit about 30 balls, make good contact with about 10, and then we went to lunch. (I hit a few, as well, but I wanted to be there to encourage John on his journey back to the first tee.)  It was a great day, and we will be back next week. :-)

Thursday...White Hawk GC:

From the Gold tees, 6509 yds. 72.0/130,  44-41...85 with 2 birdies on the round.  Real happy with my play and with that score this early in the season, and I'm loving my new X Hot irons!  Heavy rain here all weekend, so no golf for me this weekend...

I did net 71 today.   I read someone posting their net score.  Wow, I admit that really sounds so much better than saying I carded 91.   The stat: 3 GIRs, 6 pars, 1 birdie, and 8 out of 14 fairway hits, 31 putts.

    • I just can't believe this on top of everything else has happened to him, he was supposed to win 25 majors and at least 10 green jackets and everything just derailed in 2009 and just setback after setback. We got a brief taste of his greatness at Augusta and then the world has to stop and just before we can see the second encore this has to happen.?When he had it all clicking in the early 2000's no one has ever played this game better than him and I don't think we will see anyone ever at least in our lifetimes dominate professional golf like he did ever. When I heard the news I just felt an emptiness I really never felt before about the game, sure the world keeps spinning on its axis but it's just never going to be the same for me on Sunday at Augusta.
    • I watched this video twice. I found it very interesting. Here's what I heard. First, I think the biggest point Mark was trying to make is that a golfer should in an ideal world built their bag one club at a time. As you go to lower and lower lofted clubs, you are more and more likely to need some help getting the ball in the air. It is hard to create proper launch conditions without enough loft. Where in the bag that happens (be it your 6 iron or your 2 iron) will depend upon your delivery, your swing speed, and it will be different for everyone. Some folks can hit a 2 iron. Other folks should drop from their 6 iron on up and go to a SGI iron or a hybrid.  Second, higher loft produces higher consistency. The trend of getting everything lower and lower lofted while possibly helping you hit the long irons, it might be hurting you in the short irons and traditionally higher lofted clubs. Loft is your friend when it comes to consistency.  Third, the further you are from target, the harder it is to hit target... No matter who you are. Fourth, higher handicap golfers are less consistent (i.e. have more bad shots) than lower handicap golfers. This creates a ton of what Mark called "noise" in the data. And with all that noise you can make an argument for anything you like. Therefore be careful when you are testing/getting fitted, because a fitter/salesperson can make what ever they want out of the data.  Finally, better players hit all clubs better. Worse players hit all clubs worse. The archer is more important than the arrow.
    • I apologize for resurrecting this thread but I thought this would be relevant information. The difference between Tiger's dip and Hogan's dip is that Hogan stopped the dip past P6 and only raised his head from that point on, even while hitting a driver. Tiger's just kept dipping past P7 and maybe P8. Mac O'Grady also raised his head in the downswing as well after his dip, just a bit earlier at P5 onwards. I believe this is a big part of the reason why Tiger needed multiple back surgeries and Hogan none, even Byron Nelson needed back surgery in his 40s as recalled in his autobiography and he definitely had a major head dip that continued past P7.  Now, I notice this head raising in downswing move after the post P4 dip only occurs with Hogan and Mac and very very very few others; I'd say 99.99% of golfers including the top tour pros today continue to dip past P6 and P7 especially with the longer clubs. That would mean only a handful of golfers in the world would truly pass Key #1 if this move was required to master it.
    • For any one wanting a cheaper sharpening option, the Accusharp is decent and requires no skill level to use.  Amazon.com  
    • Can't find the article or blog but I remember reading about Paul Wood (PING engineer) talking about how from a physics standpoint, more compact heads worked better for more skilled players. Basically a longer/wider face makes it harder for the better player to square up the face and hit the center. This bit hints at it.
