What'd You Shoot Today?

I shot a 44 on the bck 9 at Forest Creek yesterday.  Some temp greens so putting was almost impossible.  Had three three putts, 3 pars and 2 double bogies.  Didn't lose a ball but had 2 recovery shots.  Excited to get back out there and make a run at breaking 40 for 9.

Last night's Thursday Twilight league at The Creek at Qualchan.  We were playing the back nine last night and it is rated as easier than the front but it doesn't set up well for me.  Last night I was thinking about it and I came to the conclusion it is due to a lot of dogleg right holes.  4 of the holes are dogleg right and my primary ball flight is right to left.  I have a hard time with alignment and have a difficult time aiming left.  Just a mind game.  Anyway,  I shot 40 for the 9 with 1 double bogey, 3 bogeys and a birdie.  They had just cut and rolled the greens so they were fast and the pin placements were on some extreme hills.  I three putted 3 times and had 19 putts.  FIR:  5/7, GIR 6/9.  (nGIR was 7/9).

37 best ball striking for me in three years. Seven straight pars, 3 putted for bogey on 8 and on 9 though nGIR it was the first time it wasn't close enough to putt and the pitch died running up a hill leaving a 10 foot or so putt and I missed it. On paper 5 GIR but 3 of the 4 missed were literally inches into the fringe. Hit every fairway and my drives were easily 30-40 yards longer than when I've been struggling, inside 50 yards on both par 5's with second shots. For the most part other than the final hole is was two shots to the green and two putts, the par 4 felt easy. And I did it on a course where I usually struggle. Was nice to hit 7i or shorter into greens.

85 (42/43):  Some really good holes, some really bad holes. While this was easily one of the worst rounds for me in years with Driver & Fairways hit, I did have a personal best 3 birdies in a single round. So that was nice. This will be my last round for a few months so that was a good finish

Was a really up and down round today, but it's been like this the past 1 1/2 years...

I was +4 after the first 3 holes, then -1 for the next 6 (1 birdie, 5 pars) for a 39 on the front.

Then followed that up with being +8 for 10-14, and then had pars on 15-18 for a 44.

Finished with an 83.  I'm just consistently inconsistent! :angry:

You know you had a great round when the handicap computer questions you! Shot a 36 last night! 3 birdies 3 pars 3 bogeys. Best 9 ever! And backed it up with a 40 this morning. Hope this streak holds!

Wait , does that count as breaking 80? My goal for the year.

played A-Team Match Play today at Washington Golf & CC, not one of my most favorite courses.

Shot 38-38-76 (Par 70) 1 birdie, 1 double 

Our team kicked butt at home and won 8.5-0.5, we lost on the road 6.5-2.5 so won the overall match 11-7.

The guys we played shot 5 under gross, we were three under.  Tied front, lost back 2 &1.

I didn't strike the ball well and my dreaded hook from my driver showed up on a few holes.. I still scored better than my average.   The bright spot...no 3 putts and 31 putts.

Played 27 holes yesterday, +6,+4,+2.  

Played in the worst conditions i can remember and it didn´t rain. 0° C real feel, no roll fairways, 40 miles winds, and greens under maintenance (full of sand, stones and little holes). I only tryed to keep the ball in play (failed, 2 balls into water) and accept i would´t play as i usually do. Not good score, but a good practice under hard conditions.

41+ 43 on our usual par 68 muni. 4 pars, one double. One three putt. Felt pretty good. Haven't been feeling it the past 5 or 6 weeks. Good practice session on Friday, Really tried concentrating on set up. 

For me, this game is one of repetition: doing the things that work, stopping doing things that don't work: but then falling back into those bad habits. Repeat.

50-X-X

Kittyhawk GC, Hawk Course, Dayton, OH

Hit the course for a solo round in a bad mood. A pop-up/pull off the first tee, three-putt bogey on No. 2 and a snap hook off the fence on No. 3, sent me over the edge.

After hacking and slashing thru the front nine, I retired the scorecard and focused on trying to hit the ball as far as I could. The results were pretty spectacular. A big drive on No. 12 resulted in my first-ever GIR on that particular hole. Pounded driver and 5W on par-5 No. 15 to hit my third from about 30 yards and nailed the flag stick on the 180-yard No. 17.

Silver lining aside, its been a while since I was that angry on the course. Amazing given the trip thru Shanksville earlier this year. I can't pitch, chip or putt when I'm that mad. Need to find a way to make the temper issues not become a bad trend.

An 80 the day after a Tough Mudder.  Not a very good round, really, for me at this course.  Strangely enough, my striking was pretty decent.  Short game seemed more affected by me being weary and my calves all tight and sore.

Have not played a round since the end of May.  Too busy with work and travel.  Hoping to get a few rounds in next week when I am back in the Rocky Mtns.

    • Day 39 (16 Jan 22) - totally rained out due to winter storm Izzy, so took out the putter and worked on tempo of swing.    
    • How? I've played Pine Needles a few times. I played it in 2021, even.
    • I have a little more time to elaborate on what I had said earlier. There are some golf instructors who will "begin at square one" and will draw things out to make some more money. Sometimes these instructors have a "system" and you have to do the early parts before they let you move on, often it's "easier" for them to fit everything into the same pattern or swing, etc. But that's not how good instruction works. I take the strengths a person has and attack the priority "piece" or problem. Often this begins early (at address position, or during the backswing), because improvements to those things have downstream effects. But it's not for the purpose of drawing out lessons or making more money, even as a side benefit let alone as a primary driver for the reason(s). Not sure what you mean about "advanced things." You are new here, so we don't know much about your game. Generally speaking, though, if you want to play your best golf… you're better off finding an instructor you like and working with them, not trying to learn as much about "the golf swing" as you can. That generally just leads to confusion and slows your progress. I read this as you want to find an instructor that created a set of videos that you can follow to build a golf swing. If so, consider maybe…  AMG+ | Athletic Motion Golf – Athletic Motion Golf If you're interested in specific golf lessons for you… a number of members here (and golfers who aren't even members here) are doing well with us at: Welcome to Evolvr - Online Golf Instruction - Evolvr - Online Golf Instruction Golf Evolution's online golf instruction.  
    • Day 2: Starting over as of yesterday, since I don't feel like tracing my previous posts to see if my streak is alive or not. Played 18 this morning, didn't lose a single ball or have any penalty strokes, which was encouraging after not practicing much last week due to illness. Short game was terrible today, which is unusual because normally I gain strokes against my handicap and my target handicap in this area, but the motions all felt "off" for whatever reason. I was pretty solid off the tee except for a few skanky thin shots, and a few pulls that got knocked down short by trees, but none of them were excessively penal. Approach play was about normal for me, which is pretty meh lately.
