What'd You Shoot Today?


Recommended Posts

Another good round yesterday.  Played a match against one of our better young players at the club.  Played $5 Nassau and ended tied.

He shot 35-38-73 and I came in a 37-38-75, both had 3 birdies.  He gave me a stroke a side.  Guy hits it 40-50 yards past me consistently and if not for a three putt on 9, I'd have won the front, back and overall instead of a tie.

43+41 = 84

practice definitely generating more consistent ball striking, although sometimes get feeling of cutting across ball instead solid strike

Hit 8/11 fairways, 3 GIRs and 5 saves. Played well, but not great. Short game did not come through

After 3 weeks laid up due to knee sprain I had a surprising good round shot 78 on par 70, but there was like 8 chances to make birdie but miss all,so I left a few putts out there. Happy to get out and swing a club.

Played out B-Team Inter-club match versus the previous years Champions, Chantilly Golf & CC, we came away with a win.  Our teams were +5 at home and -3 on the road, so a good win, but it was tough.

I shot 37-36-73, 2 birdies, 4 bogeys.

Even though I played well, we only won by +1 over the 18.

Didn't strike the ball all that well today but shot a decent 42-38 = 80 at Elizabeth Manor today. Putted better finally.

Also shot 39 on back 9 Thursday 04/20, and 39 on front 9 on Friday 04/21.

Fairly unspectacular in general.

My best round of the year to date from the Men's Blue tees with a 78.
Almost had an Ace, 3 feet just below the hole and almost holed an 8 iron which hit a foot in front of the hole and spun back. Tapped in the putt.
Three birdies along with a couple of long bombs to save pars made my day.  :-)

Incredible early morning tee at Diani Leisure Club on the Kenyan Coast. Managed to sneak in 9 holes whilst my better half was sleeping off a hangover! 

Shot 45 (9+) which I am delighted with as I was renting clubs which were a bit hit and miss - Very slow greens due the lack of rain out here but putting was surprisingly one of my strongest parts of the round. 

Finished at 9.30am and it was already 27C with really high humidity! 

Was great to be out surrounded by the most beautiful Flaura and Fauna. 

Golf in Kenya is fantastic when it is right!

Well...  It was a nice weekend, so I finally got out to the course.  

Played a little course called Boulder Pointe, south of the cities.   It was my first time out on the course, but I have spent a ton of time in the range and such.   

Unsurprisingly, my ball striking off flat ground was excellent.  Unsurprisingly, My course management, Short game, putting, balls hit from the rough or side-hill lies, and general aversion to dumb mistakes were all terrible.  

Shot a 92.  but, given that My drives and irons, for the most part were quite excellent, this round had the potential to be more like an 82.  

had 4 3 putts, got stuck in a bunker once, had a really weird unplayable lie stuck under the lip of a greenside bunker --which, like a dummy, I tried to play. took a swing and jammed it in there further.--   so after that fiasco, I took a drop, now hitting 5 on a par 3, was frustrated and chunked my chip just barely on the green, then three putted for a 8.   so...   that was nice.  

basically, I just made all of the dumb mistakes that a person that hasn't been on a golf course in 6 months would make.   first rd. of the year, though, so I'll take it with a grain of salt.   live and learn.

I played on Friday late afternoon and Sunday because the wife is a way for a few days..so I tried to get in a couple of rounds. 

I shot a 91 on Friday, I started with a few pars and a couple of bogeys until I got a triple of bogey on a par 5! follow by a double on a par 4. I sliced my driver, tried the miracle shot and bladed my 58 degree wedge over the green....just like that I added 5 strokes in 2 holes. On the back nine I wasn't able to make pars because i lost confidence in my driver.   

I went to the range on Saturday to work on my driver and I was able to find that I wasn't making a big enough back turn and I wasn't letting go at the bottom. 

I figured I would have a better round on Sunday. Again I started Sunday's round with a couple of pars and a couple of bogeys until I got to a 205 yrds par 3. I usually hit a high five wood on that hole. I was not comfortable with the set up and right before making the swing a cart decided to drive by as if I did not exist..I pulled hook my shot OB so hard I had to hit another one from the tee....I was fuming, rushing to get it on the fairway i hit again and I pulled it OB again!...that destroyed my attitude and I could not keep my head in the round..as it relates to score my round was over in the fifth hole. I decided to make it a practice round and focus and make as many good swings as possible.

49 holes Fri and Sat.  (Fri played the back 9 twice in addition to 10-13 as an extra loop)

2 complete rounds though at a couple courses I like.  76 and 80.  Friday play was really good - except, strangely enough, 10-13 (all three times.... just would hit good drives and choke on the rest).

Finally played my first full 18 hole round this year and shot 79 on my home course. One birdie, couple doubles. Couple chunked pitches and couple pulled tee shots cost me. Just aerated so putting was basically aim and hit it hard and hope for best. All in all, not terrible but need to get out and play more now.

I finally held it together and completed a good round.   72.5CR  137slope....6564yds     Par is 72::  37-36=73

I've been showing signs as of late, but 2-3 bad swings per round seem to cost me 4-5 strokes!  LOL  Not today!! I made 4 bogeys.......2 were three putts from long range.  The other 2 were after missing the green....chipping reasonably well, but missing putts from about 5 feet.   Overall......very happy with the tee to green play.   I made 1 eagle (my first of 2017) and 1 birdie....that helps!!!

85 :( 

I played this course before (river pointe country club) when it was wet and didn't think much of the undulations in the green because they were so slow. Layout was beautiful on 2/3 of the 27 holes with 2 par 3s that remind me a lot of 12 at Augusta to a small extent. 

Anyways, I played their again yesterday and these greens were fast and very punishing and really made me realize I'm not as good as I was. These greens were very similar (I assume) to what I watch on tv and I loved it. I had 34 putts which was terrible but I just had a hard time trusting a shorter stroke. I am more proud of this 85 that I am of the 75s I've shot this year so far. Super fun stuff and I am pretty much only going to play they this year. 

 

That said, chipping was ok and pitching was ok. The tp5 ball I am def switching too. I drove the ball extrmely well due to a slight change but this ball seemed to give a bit added distance. Only downside (which I attribute more to fast greens than the ball after just one round) I got no bite really on shots out of the rough, but out of the fairway I was able to generate a lot of spin with my wedges. Even flew a green on my second shot of a 530 yard par 5. 

 

My my score doesn't really show how well I think I played but given the greens and layout of the course, I am super happy after having a fag to think about it. Can't wait to break 80 on the course.

42-53-95

Majestic Springs GC

It was going so well ... then boom. Third full round with the new interlocking grip and stuff just fell apart on the second nine. Current theory is that if I don't get my weight forward with my new grip, it gets bad fast. 

Two holes in particular did me. Had an eight and two holes later a 10. Jungle grass roughs don't work with sloppy.

39/43/82, with 30 putts. Probably too many beverages taking effect on the back 9. Enough said......:-P

    • Is there a definition of what makes one the greatest golfer? Is it how many majors one has won? How many total tournaments one has won? Or is it who would win most matches if the two played each other. Maybe it's the length of their career mixed with the quality of their successes? If Tiger and Jack went head to head in the primes of their careers, say 10 matches, I would probably pick Tiger to win more then Jack. jmo.
    • To her driver?  She was always adjusting loft and draw bias so understandable she could have lost her head.  An adjustable wrench or a Torx screwdriver and it goes back on easily. (😁 Couldn't help myself)     (Just discovered you can italicize emojis!) ⛳🍷

    • Shot 79 today, with 14 nGIR/GIR, 32 putts, and 1 penalty stroke. Low event round, nothing awful, and nothing exceptional. Changes from my last lesson basically took my bad hook misses out of play, which really helped. I felt confident that I could aim and know that if I missed, it would be a playable right miss. I'm still working up to full speed with the change, so hit a little shorter than normal (about 1 club loss of distance) today, but my home course is narrow and position/accuracy are more important than length on most holes. The penalty stroke came on the one hole where a right miss is penal, and my tee shot, which was headed a bit right, took a hard first bounce further right, and rolled into a creek. Made 4 up/down from nGIR, which was also helpful in scoring, including a nice one on the 18th hole, where I had about a 20 foot putt for par to break 80, and nailed it.
    • I’ve almost completed the main game of Hollow Knight. An incredible game that I knew nothing about before playing. It’s a Metroidvania like game and quite extensive. It feels like the Soulsborne of platformers. Somewhat in the vein of the Ori games, but more extensive and challenging. It’s not as difficult as games like Wings og Vi, Boshy and Roah, but takes some precise controlling. You can become a bit OP by collecting and upgrading, which makes it more manageable, not too different from Soulsborne.
