What'd You Shoot Today?


Recommended Posts

Been playing golf on and off for 30 years. Left the game for years at a time. Started back up a year and a half ago and been shooting high 90's low 100's. Saturday I shot my best score ever an 83. Changed one thing with my swing and it was magic. Playing again Sunday, and will find out if it was a fluke

CAREER BEST! Played my home course. Birdie at 1 to get the day rolling and never looked back. 3 birds on the front to one bogey to play the front -2. Had 2 birdies and 2 bogeys on back for an even bac

Played the back today.  39.  4 pars 4 bogies, and a lone birdie.  Two of those bogies were boneheaded decisions all for the slim chance at an eagle putt.  Oh well, I knew they were dumb when I stepped up to the ball and tried to pull them off.

Played our club championship this weekend. 83-75-76. Had a 2-hour rain delay in middle of back 9 on day 1.  At restart we had to immediately go out with no warm up and beat darkness. Sadly I started double double.  But overall a positive weekend with the sticks!

79/77 at my home course. Windy, cold and no roll weekend. Poor ball striking and putting. Amazing game around the greens, all the shots with my 60°, even the bump an run with the face riddicusly close.

Semi-Finals of the match play tournament last night at my local club, shot 40/38 (par 70) to record the 2UP win to advance to the finals!  Was also my best 18 hole score ever there as well as tying my best 9 hole score!  All the work I've been doing in the last month on Key #2 is paying off.

Welcome. I'm glad all the money I've lost to you will now increase as you get even sneakier good than you already are. This is a great site. See you tomorrow night. 

To touch on @dmay_golf post, golf is quite elusive to me when it matters. Preparing for our club championship I shot 78-78-35. On the weekend I shot 80-85-85. Not my best. Then last night I shot 73 and tonight 44-36 for an 80 from the championship tees. I'm very close to finding the right spot with my game.

37+42 for 79. 8 strokes better than my best rounds (87 three times) this year, dumbfounded. I honestly never thought I'd break 80 again, but I don't know what to think now...

Yes, I know @kpaulhus very well. We play a lot of gold together (sadly he's moving in a month). I jokingly call him my human ATM....  But seriously we always have great matches and lots of fun. 

He's the reason I joined this site.

Wednesday,

Kittyhawk GC, Hawk Course, Dayton, OH

47-43-90

Great weather and a light day at work lead me to take the afternoon off and get this solo round in.

This is a pretty good score for me on this relatively hazardous course. It's actually something considering how much of the front nine I spent in the traps. Thankfully, they have some sand in the traps for a change and I did a decent job extricating myself from them. Three pars to finish the round had me nearly breaking 90 for the first time on the Hawk (of course, I have broken 90 on several easier courses).

One interesting thing was the distance I was getting with my driver. Normally, 230 yards is about all I get, but here I had several in the 250-260 range. A couple of the sandies were the direct result of my assuming I wasn't going to reach the traps. Not sure where that extra yardage came from or how long it will stick around.

"Golf is cruel mistress."

Same course, same clubs, same golfer.  81,82, .....95!!!!

Seemingly, I wasn't hitting the ball that differently. I hit driver 13 times, 12 were in the fairway or just off. The one bad one, I got lucky and could have salvaged bogey at worse, but tried to be a hero and got an 8. Bad judgement cost a couple of strokes on other holes. I had 3 shots that were just bad ball striking, but would up being very costly.

Excepting the aforementioned 3 really bad strikes, there is no hole in this 6000 yards that I should have a 6 on.

Yes, I recently followed my best round of the year with my worst. 

I need to just stop tinkering with my swing. All it does is cause misery.

I mixed it up a little this morning.  I typically play the white tees at my home course (69.8 / 129 - 6147)... but when I arrived, one of the seniors that regularly frequent the club asked if I'd join their little money game group.  I had intended to play alone, so... I agreed and joined in.  They decided that everybody would play the gold tees (67.2 / 121 - 5553).  

I had never played from anything other than the white or blue tees at this course, so I figured it'd be fun to try something new. 

It worked out nicely because, for whatever reason, the ball was not going anywhere for me off the tee.  I struggled on a few holes throughout (3 doubles and 1 triple), but managed to squeak out a 41 - 42 = 83.  Not horrible for stepping out of the car, being asked to join and jumping on the first tee all in a matter of the first 5 minutes.

I got out tonight and played 9 holes but 2 ball golf.  I was 2 over with ball #1 and 3 over with ball #2. 15 putts with ball #1 and 14 putts with ball #2.  I had one birdie with each ball.  Great night of exercise and golf.  Really happy with the results

    • I don’t think anything they do will make a meaningful impact on pace of play except keeping players on the clock and enforcing it. Without books they may just spend more time reading the green since they don’t have anything to help them. I just don’t see where players would get the incentive to play faster if they think spending their allot time will help them score better. Many players play fast and enjoy keeping a good pace, but with 125 players out there, there will always be many that take their time. The Masters has banned books, so some players already has some experience with it. Do they play faster there? The greens at Augusta are difficult and it’s a special tournament, so maybe they spend their time even without books. Perhaps not the best tournament to compare with. I came across this article: https://www.golfchannel.com/news/2021-us-open-rory-mcilroy-thinks-green-reading-books-should-be-outlawed-greater-good-game There seems to be a combination of reasons behind the idea, rather than one. I’d maybe think the for-the-greater-good thoughts like Rory’s are more common than pace of play, but also a combination. I like the thoughts about the greater good of the game, and wouldn’t object to the books being outlawed. It puts more focus on reading greens and trusting what you see rather than consult a book. As Erik said, if they don’t putt better today than before the books, is there a reason to keep them?
    • I have 45°, 50° and 56°. Simple. As a short knocker I need the extra slots for the top of my bag.
    • Good greens, perfect weather for golf. Even then -1 gets a tie for 11th. If you add 10mph on to the breeze then par becomes a very good score. I watched about 2 hours early and an hour late on and the quality of golf today was great. 
    • Played my first round away from my home course yesterday and snuck into two birdies on holes 4 (par-3) and 10 (par-4). 🙂  Started composite stats now.
