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

40-39=79

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.
