What'd You Shoot Today?


Recommended Posts

Been raining all week and could only get a tee time at a super nice court in Houston which was sweet


Black horse golf club- 74.1/134, 6950 yards, par 72

44-44=88

3 triple bogies including 2 snowmen, 2 birdies, 6 pars

Hit the ball so well but those 3 awful holes killed me and my putting was not fantastic, I didn't make a putt outside about 6 feet until the last hole when I sunk a 12 footer for par!

First time playing the course and overall a great day just glad the rain held out and I hope I can get a nice round in tomorrow!

First time I swung a golf club in seven months today.  Played 27 holes and shot 43-40-40.  I actually four putted the last hole on the last nine to shoot 40.  Ugh.

Still, I was thoroughly pleased with the rounds.  I'm positive I'm going to have a good year.  Whatever happened during the break, my swing feels more comfortable than it has in like eight years.

Well I'm far away from most of you, but I feel I am going to progress a lot this season. I'm still very much a hack beginner and this will be my second season. I started golfing last June. I played my first nine holes today, and came exceptionally high at 62. I feel this is is an improvement over last year, as I was 55-57, but never counted OB strokes and lost ball strokes. Last year I didnt even count extra shots (when I sliced my drive into the bushes and dropped another ball) and I usually lost a dozen balls per round. This year I am trying to be as legit as possible. I came out losing only 4 balls. I also feel I made way better shots all around. While it is nowhere near par and horrible compared to others, I feel I am on my way to a great season and look forward to my progression throughout the season. I should also mention that work safety incentives bought me a cligear 3.5+ cart. So I have, chosen to walk all my rounds, and hopefully shed a couple pounds while having fun.

Friday,

Miami Shores GC, Troy OH, White tees, CR 66.8

49-46-95

Had absolutely horrible holes on 1, 2 and 13, but picked myself off the floor to avoid triple digits. I managed three pars in a row after the quad on 13, so it was nice to manage a bit of mental resilience for a change.

74.1/131/ 7100 yards

Pre tournament round

Played awful but my putting saved me from shooting in the hundreds

48+50=98

Probably took like 11 penalty strokes, got unlucky a lot, and overall a bad day.

Hope I do a bit better for my tournament tomorrow.

First round of the year today. Was so excited last night I could barely sleep! Shot an 84 on a Par 71, 67.9/130. Pretty happy about the end results. Lost a couple strokes from poor chips but great putting cemented the score.

First round of the year for me as well. Had to shake off some rust. Started bogey-triple and +7 through 5 holes... Then finished the last 13 even par. A satisfying 79.

4th time out this year-managed a 48 nine hole. Hoping that will improve to a 45 by year end. First month last year was in the 55's.

Also using a new crock pot-way more fun coming home to a cooked meal

Today, I played two rounds back to back.

1st round:  89 net    .... :bugout: I didn't have time to warm up and it was really needed as my body was exceptionally sore.  No GIR and lots of lost balls & OBs. Ball striking was non existent.  Things started poorly and got progressively worse.   The only thing working was chipping but it was not enough to stop a train wreck.  Ate lunch and went back to the course for either for a range practice or another round.  Opted to go with another round.  Glad I did.

2nd round: 72 net   ... :dance: Chipping got even better which led to only 26 total putts.  Had only 2 GIRs but got up and down 5 times.  Toward the 2nd 9, I figured out what I was doing wrong with my ball striking.  My game got progressively better.    This score would lower my HI to 16.8.  My stated HI goal for 2015 is 16.   I am there already.

Nine hole 43. Two doubles, three bogeys, four pars.

Solid tee game - glad once again for swapping out the 20* hybrid for a 22* 7W. My distance with this club is key on two of the holes on the home course; easier for me to hit straight.

Five near GIR and one GIR. Of course the one was on a par five courtesy of a bump and run.

Food for thought - there was much talk this past week about the number of clubs used around the green. I think I forced the issue a bit today, thus those two doubles. I need to get a short game philosophy and stick to it. Maybe the 50* and then deviate from that when the situation is blatantly obvious. The never-ending pursuit...

Beautiful day in NW Nevada. Sadly, first evidence of drought's effects on what the summer conditions are going to be like. Farming & Wells > Golf, but it's still sad to see the brown and burnt so early.

Last week in Maui - Kahili course.  45/36

It took 9 holes to figure out the driver and the little grips.  I had a bad hook with that club.  Finally started hitting straight with my 'normal' slice/fade swing.  I suspect it was 'fitted' to help induce a draw.

Beautiful course, something like 6800 yards from the tips.   Some really super shots.  Always windy in Maui

three birdies on the back 9 (both par 5s and a par 3) - started hitting really nicely.  don't have the score card here at work, will enter it when I'm all caught up at home.

fun stuff - I hate it when vacation ends....

Hi everyone, I'm new here. Into my 2nd year of taking golf seriously. Yesterday I shot 44 over 9 holes on a semi-difficult course, which was a personal best. A few short game issues and fat shots kept my from 40.

I just got a part-time gig here at Newman so he gave me free golf, got out late morning played 27 holes zipped around in a little less than 3.5 hours... First nine (whites): 42 Rough start, 7, 4, 5 but settled down a little... GIR: 1/9 Fairways: 2 Birdies: 1 nGIR: 7 Putts: 15 Second Nine: 45 (Blues) This nine woulda been a lot better except I made all bogeys the first 4 holes, parred 5 and 6, bogeyed 7 and 8, and made a snowman on 9 (old 18)... Third 9: 41 (whites) My final nine around I hit it terrible off the tee, the only fairway I hit was the 5th... and was driving short because of shots shooting up with the wind... but I had 10 putts in 9 holes, before you say how was that possible, well I basically chipped and pitched everything inside ten feet and made everything from their except a slight misread on 5...

Alright so this is my 2nd full year playing the game. I'm 20 years old and shoot in the low 90's on a good day. Never had a lesson but people always tell me I should. When I get a good swing on my driver, I've hit the ball as far as 325 yards. On average I hit my driver about 280-300. I'm a long hitter that just needs the right mechanics. Any ideas on lessons I should take? Do I have what it takes to play at a high level?
