What'd You Shoot Today?

Shot a 90 with two birdies. Two bad tee shots with hybrids on par 3s cost me about 4-6 shots, and a bad drive (too much beer swing) cost me two more. My short game was lights out for some reason, my chips were routinely stopping 1-2 feet away from pin. I wish I had that every day, lol.

 

Second round in a row that was a 90 with two birdies. I need to improve my concentration.

It's been a good golf weekend.

Friday Night - 79 - 41 on the front, 38 on the back.  Had to par the last 3 holes to get it.

Saturday - 79 - 40 on the front 38 on the back.  Once again had to par the last 3 holes.

Sunday - 78 - 41 on the front 37 on the back.  Was forced to par out starting on hole 12 (boogied 10 and 11).  Did one, better...literally.  6 pars and a birdie on the last 7 holes.  If I could have made more than one of my 5, 8 foot birdie putts it could have been an outstanding day, but I'll settle for a great day :-P.

The last  3 months have been somewhat of a breakthrough.  At the beginning of May I was an 11 handicap.  I'm currently trending to an 8.2.  Its kind of nice :-D.  It's probably going to suck for next weeks Club Championship.

40-37= 77 (+5) still playing in cold and windy conditions. Good practice thow. 

Finally the wind stops and i shoot 70 (-2).

I discovered that on short putts i was not accelerating thru the ball. Besides sinking 10 out of 12 inside 10 feet (that could be luck) my stroke feel good in all thous putts, even the 2 putts i miss, both inches short in-line.

Friday - 80

Saturday - 77 but it felt worse/awkward

Not getting clean contact lately compared to the last month.  Silly game.

It rained again...as it seems to every day.  I shot 135 at the driving range.  Could have gone much lower; but I opted for the big bucket.

Last Wednesday I shot a 44 on 9 holes, about 2950 yards. 4 pars & 1 ruinous triple bogey. 

I feel like I never get to play anymore.

I got out today and played 9.  I shot a 41 on the front 67.3/117.   I missed one fairway bad (ended up in another fairway but had 8 nGIR, 4 GIR.   I putted well except for #6 where I had 4 putts!  I still ended up with 17 putts.  I was bragging last week about no 3 putts the previous 2 rounds.  

I've learned you never mock the golf gods.  They are vengeful.

Played 9 on Sunday and again on Monday. Both on my home course front 9. The second 9 I played the blue/white combo tees which play to a hair over 3300 yds. Shot a 39 with 2 birdies (another 2 birdie putts lipped out), 5 gir, and 5 fir. My short game has drastically improved since reading the short game bible towards the tail end of the spring. The combined 9s were my first outing that I can remember where I posted a single digit differential. Hopefully I will be a single digit index by the 9/1 revision.

108, 54/54.

@tlazzol was kind enough to drive up to my home course today. It was nice to see how this game should be played - at least until the nasty weather chased us off the course. I went back out and finished the last 7 holes.... but it wasn't pretty.

I'd been playing from the short tees so much lately I expected a high number when I moved back a set of tees, but I was hoping it would be a bit lower than this.

In addition to the normal and expected weaknesses, I wasn't as accurate with my iron play - which I'd been pretty happy with before today.

This is what I need to do more of - challenge myself by working on my weaknesses. I no longer have the high expectations this year I've had in years past, but I'm hoping to achieve some tiny bit of improvement by the end of the season.

There's a thin line between enjoying the game and setting myself up for failure.

Back out to follow up my 74 on the 69.9/121 home course. I thought I would would have a typical post low rounds STB and it started out that way... Bunch of bogeys on the front nine and crap drives (14% fairways hit on round... Whorable) but I birdied the hardest 9th hole and went on a tear of pars. Ended up birdieing 17 and 18 for even par back 9. Shot 78 for the first back to back rounds in the 70's that I can recall. Putting like a bashee.

Jon,

Ask Joe, it's the host job to control the weather.... :whistle:.    Terry does have a sweet swing.  

I was lucky enough to play Flint Golf Club (private).  It is old money and the course was pristine.   I had a career putting day with 28 putts, 1 chip in, and 2 birdies.   39/43 - 82.    Not quite a career best but close.

Played Kiva Dunes two times last while on vacation, 67.8/119.  Shot a 78 on my first rounds, and two days later had a chance for my best round ever as I was -1 after 16 holes.  It is the first time I have ever shot back to back in the 70's.  I hit 9 GIR on the front 9 that day, had 4 birdies and felt like I missed some putts on a number of other makable birdies.  I ended up bogeying 17 and 18 for a 73.  I am looking forward to my round this weekend, I hope I can keep it going!

It is bad form of me to get a side discussion going in this thread (see the first post "rules"), so I just wanted to point you to consider this thread. I know you have a scientific approach to the game so maybe you'd seen it, found it interesting, and commented there already. 

As for me, yesterday I played my first injury-free round since April. 83 on a short, open public course near me. Good score but on a typical course, I would guess it would've been 90ish. 

Played a fun mountain course in the western mountains of North Carolina last week. Keep in mind, I was creaky from several days of multi-mile hikes to remote waterfalls. Quite the adventure score-wise as I started with 3 tee shot shots OB for an 11 on an short par 4.  First 3 holes were +14, as I did the math on the 4th tee.  Yikes. At that point, I just relaxed and had a good time enjoying the views and interesting terrain. Still a good day on the course with some nice retirees there.

    • I wouldn't say I'm great at reading the numbers off a launch monitor, but I do feel like the path, face, HSP, VSP, low point, dynamic loft numbers are a big deal. I dunno what curve is and the difference between that and shot shape nor do I know what the acceleration and speed profiles are. The livestream also mentioned official recommended external battery packs because if you get one that provides too much juice, you can fry the M+'s chips. Also that they anticipated limited supplies and bought extra and have 3K M+ in inventory.  
    • This just happened to my XHot Driver.  Love the Driver but this has happened several times where it becomes loose.  Does anyone know where you can buy replacement screw bits? I can't seem to find any online, etc.
    • lets say I am more interested in the potential to go to the driving range, set something up quickly and easily and play a simulated round at the driving range...will either Mevo monitor do that on a phone?     To answer questions I anticipate, I don't run with an ipad or lap top so those aren't really options for me and with a game room and music room, convincing the wife I need a golf room has not proven fruitful...and when it comes to the numbers, while I know the basics...I want an inside out swing, etc, the smash factor and angle of attack and so forth are beyond my technical knowledge or interest so it might be the, on this site, oft-maligned Garmin R10 would be better as an overpriced simulator toy, just looking at options; would prefer the better quality Mevo if it does what I want, particularly since the alignment issue I keep hearing about is something I will struggle with
    • I was on the fence about it last year and I’m still on the fence about it now, but I’d definitely get the upgrade if I do get it. The stuff they added is really the data I’m after for my own practice, so if anything yea it’s more expensive, but it’s also more attractive to me now.
    • I'm in the same boat, will be getting the Mevo+ next year when my new house is done for my garage simulator setup, but probably will have to wait on the Pro Package for at least a few months, maybe until I get a bonus at work or something. I can get plenty of value and use out of the regular Mevo+ in terms of both helping improve my game and just to have fun with friends, I'm not sure if the added data points are going to be worth an extra $1,000 to me or not.
