What'd You Shoot Today?

124, worst in a long time. I couldn't do much of anything right today, really. The 2.56 putts per-hole was the worst I've had all season. My chipping was really inconsistent. I had some awful luck as well, including getting stuck under two trees, ending up in a bunker I rarely visit while it was in horrendous shape, and hitting a dead tree. I had 3 penalty strokes when it's rare for me to have more than 1 (the 10th hole is basically my only issue with that ever). I only used the driver twice because it wasn't going anywhere.

Just all-around bad. Nothing to really take away from it, to be honest. Just gotta not let being screwed by bad course conditions bother me as much as it did on the second hole.

Played to 90, my average score these days.   But the big news was that I may have fixed my driver issue, hitting 13 out of 14 fairways - a personal record.

Well, only last Friday I shot shot 13 over net, today I shot 16 under. That is crazy inconsistency. I have been struggling with my fairway woods and hybrids lately, so today I just used irons, knowing I would lose some distance. It worked wonderfully, because although I was right and did lose a few yards, I kept the ball on the fairway, and this in turn gave the me confidence and helped me relax. 

 

Oh, I should have mentioned that it is the 2nd week on the trot I won the Monday bash

70 at Battlegrounds CC in NJ yesterday. The best round I've played this season. Felt good to hit quality golf shots again.

Shot of the day was a slick sawed off 9i i hit into a back right pin on the eigth hole for a kick in birdie. Had a chance to go in, too.

After two and a half rounds of completely losing my full iron swing I seemed to have found it at the turn of my last round. Shot a 48 on the front 9 with 4 double bogeys. After the turn I shot a 41 and started feeling much better. Broke 90 for the third time in a row now, hopefully can keep the pace up.

2 rounds this weekend.  Pretty happy, I was hitting terribly on the range last week (thinning it) and had a talk with a buddy here and figured out what I had been neglecting (in my posture).  Apparently it worked.  St Croix especially is a difficult/tricksy course - lots of fun.  (However, especially happy with the score as they just aerated)

A few more penalties than I normally like.  But those are easy to attack and eliminate.  My contact has been as good as it ever has been before.  I really need to start making those birdie putts.  GIRs are increasing a lot.  My iron game is much improved.

Played the home course Thursday and again on Sunday (with a lesson in between).  Shot a 91 Thursday, 84 on Sunday.  Stats really tell the story, fairways 43% vs. 29% which led to 33% GIR vs. 17% and 8 pars on Sunday vs. 3 on Thursday.  Had to text my instructor mid-round I was so happy with my drives.  Only bad part about Sunday's rounds was taking 2 penalty strokes on the same hole (into the drink off the tee and a lost ball into the woods to the right of the green).  Other than that, a very nice day for me.

This past Saturday I shot an 81, with 3 - 3 putts and 1 - 4 putt.  I found a few things on the range to improve my swing so my focus now is improving on my putting.  I'm hoping to be consistently breaking 80 by the end of the summer.

87 at Temecula Creek. Driver behaved, putter ok, sand good, irons into greens a bit long at times, hybrid pulled left more than I wanted. All in all a good day

I birdied my one of my nemesis holes on Monday. I've never parred it before. It is an uphill par four. The tee shot is through a tree chute and has with the landing area 35 ft above the tee. The green has a steep 35 ft hill climb in front of it. If you are short, it rolls all the way back down. If you hit the green, it usually goes off the back.

I hit my 5w to 145 yards from the pin. Then I hit a 6 iron that hit the top of the hill just before the pin and rolled to 6 feet. Felt really good!

Hit my first 100+ in 9 or 10 games - 101 (low 90s hitter of late) Which really pissed me off because before today, I would have said the only reason I'm struggling to shoot under 90 was because of my driver getting me into jail all too often, Today was the best day I've ever had with a driver, not once in the woods, hit 11FW in regulation with an average of around 220/25, which is an absolute first for me by a mile. However 52 putts, lost count of how many triple putts I made - off the charts! In my defense I've never played on such challenging greens, also a first for me, still no excuse.
