What'd You Shoot Today?


Recommended Posts

Walked 18 today. Carded an 83 (42/41) for the round. (+12) Made a par 4 birdie, which was a pleasent surprise considering it was a 20' putt. A good read, the right speed, and a little luck on that critter. It also made the one double bogey I had look a little better. :whistle: Everything else was par, or bogey. I did hit a nice 2i, 170 yards, for a gir on a par three. 

Course was pretty empty so I kind had the place to myself. 

I'm still getting use to my new bag make up. 3W, 12 irons, and my putter. Having fun getting reaquainted  with those older, 1990 irons. The irons do need their grips changed, which is not surprising. 

It was a great weather day at 67*f, and the fact that the 6700+/- yard walk didn't tucker me out was a good thing. I think I am finally getting back up to speed after my flu episode. Most likely will go again tomorrow.

73 (+1) for a new personal best :banana:

The good news is that I'm getting more comfortable going low - particularly pleasing given that I was not swinging well. There were a few lucky breaks, but I stayed aggressive the whole way and had a really good number of birdie opportunities. 78% GIR helps :-).

More specifically, my driving was pretty dire compared to where it has been - I was fighting a hook the whole time and just wasn't finding a groove. Putted pretty well, but would like to hole more, wedge game was generally outstanding with one blip on the 18th. I was also delighted with how many times I got to pin-high. Slightly gutted that, having been this close, I couldn't quite close out a round under par (-2 through 12), but it's great progress!

I played this morning. Pretty sure this is the first time I ever played on Christmas Eve, but my two son in laws talked me into it. Normally I never play on weekends.......period. 

Walked the 18 holes. Shot a 79 with 28 putts. 7 bogies, and 11 pars. I took the boys' money, and wished them a Merry Christmas. :-D

Hadn't played in a while, and shot a 41 through 9 the other day. Been practicing non-stop ever since.

Nothing seems to motivate me like golf, and I really love that about the game.

I played yesterday with my husband and his sons, and I shot an 87, which for me is fabulous! My best hole was the par-5 #15, it's a dogleg left and I was able to cut the corner a bit with my drive, then a beautiful 3-wood, a 9-iron on, and a 7-footer side hill putt for birdie!

i love this game!

Living in PA - no golf weather for a while.

That's so sad.

I played with the women's club this morning and shot a crappy 95. Started and ended with triple bogeys, wah.

First round of 2018...started well and finished very poorly. I am in the middle of quite the swing change so I didn’t expect a whole lot but after 10 solid holes I was very happy. Then three straight triples and the rest of the round was just blah. 

Heron Lakes (63/107) 43 front, 51 back, 94 total :(

Yesterday I shot a 89 at a new course. I was super excited because I started with par, par, bogey, and another par!  All those pars were one-putts of considerable difficulty.  I had a 41 on the front, which is my best for sure this year and maybe ever.  The back nine wasn't nearly as pretty, but I didn't have any triples.  The last three holes I was getting cold and cranky and out of focus because I couldn't stop thinking about cheeseburgers.  (Also, the beverage cart never showed up.)  I gotta work on that, being able to concentrate under such adverse conditions!

Today I shot a 95 at a different course.  I've played this one before; they call it a links course and it was certainly windy like I'd imagine a links course would be.  The greens were not in good condition with wicked pin placements, and in fact the entire course seemed a bit neglected, but maybe some would just call it "rugged."

Anyhow, it was a very different experience for me, but fun trying to figure out what the wind was going to do to my shot, how to get around or over the bunkers and berms and burns, and what the heck the break was!  My husband and I were practically alone on the course, so we sometimes threw down another ball to try the shot we just messed up. Always counted the real one for my score though. :-)

I'm still figuring out the whole handicap index thing, and it was interesting to note that, though both these rounds counted in my best 10 of 20, today's score had almost the same differential as yesterday's.

95. Putting and chipping were bad, but that's not all... Even though I hit 13/14 fairways, my approach shots were inconsistent.

My first round of 18 in 2018 was on my home course, and it was brutal. Well north of 100. It was a solo practice round to work on my new grip, but discouraging never the less. I just started taking lessons so I need to work out the changes that my instructor recommended. That’s hard, especially when I was hitting the ball fairly straight though not very long with my old mechanics.

Only time (and the range) will tell if these changes improve my game at all.

Hang in there with the grip change, @tehuti!  Last year, I changed my wonky strong grip to neutral, and it took about a month for it to feel anywhere near natural... but once I fixed that fatal flaw, my scores began dropping.

Eighth round of 2018 yesterday (SO fortunate to live in southern california!), played with my weekly women's club and played really well through #11, then started a migraine and fell apart for several holes until meds kicked in, parred two in a row, finished with a 4-putt triple bogey! 93 total... 43 on the front and 50 on the back.  I usually count putts but I was scoring for the whole group so I didn't. I know I hit 12 fairways.

Best hole was the par 5 #2... a long-for-me straight drive, a good shot with my 3 wood, which always seems to fade 20* then another 3 wood which I expected to fade onto the green so I aimed 20* left, but it went straight! So I'm pin high left, downhill lie on super flat practically dirt or mashed down dead grass, and I need to chip over a bunker about 25 yards to the pin.  I said to myself, "This is your backyard shot, easy peasy," so I visualized it, felt what it needed to be, and did it! Stuck it about a foot from the hole!

Shot a 90 today!  42 on the front, and I had that in my mind at the turn, so I messed up a few holes :angry:

Best hole #3:  it's a short par 4 with a lake maybe 180-200 from the tee; I can't reach it.  My drive was good but not fabulous, and I needed my new 5 hybrid over the side of the lake.  The pin was tucked back left, so I just go for the fat part of the green, but it rolls out. leaving me a double breaking, sidehill putt of about a mile.  I read it and stroked it just right, and tapped in for a par. Yeah, me!

After a one month hiatus I played my first round of 2018. My chipping and putting definitely need some work. My tee shots were, for the most part,  pretty good. Six double bogeys and three triple bogeys hurt the most and I ended up with a 99.

Out in 54 and back in 38 for a nice, neat, 92.  Thank goodness it wasn't the other way around.  Couldn't find the golf course on the front side; but drove home in good spirits.

    • "With the delta variant taking off around the U.S., the federal government Tuesday updated its masking guidelines for fully vaccinated people. The new advice is to mask up indoors if you live in a place with "substantial" or "high" coronavirus transmission. (The guidance for people who are unvaccinated remains the same: Always mask up indoors.)" Check your county's transmission rates:   Do You Need To Wear A Mask Indoors Where You Live? Check This Map The CDC wants vaccinated people to wear masks indoors if the coronavirus is spreading widely where they live. Find out the level of virus transmission in your county. And, this was interesting: "A week after the crowds descended upon Provincetown, Massachusetts, to celebrate the Fourth of July -- the holiday President Joe Biden hoped would mark the nation's liberation from COVID-19 -- the manager of the Cape Cod beach town said he was aware of "a handful of positive COVID cases among folks" who spent time there. "We are in touch with the Health Department and Outer Cape Health Services and are closely monitoring the data," Alex Morse told reporters. The announcement wasn't unusual with roughly half of the country still unvaccinated and flare-ups of the virus popping up in various states. But within weeks, health officials seemed to be on to something much bigger. The outbreak quickly grew to the hundreds and most of them appeared to be vaccinated. As of Thursday, 882 people were tied to the Provincetown outbreak. Among those living in Massachusetts, 74% of them were fully immunized, yet officials said the vast majority were also reporting symptoms. Seven people were reported hospitalized. The initial findings of the investigation led by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, seemed to have huge implications. Before Provincetown, health officials had been operating under the assumption that it was extraordinarily rare for a vaccinated person to become infected with the virus. And if they did, they probably wouldn't end up passing it on to others, such as children too young to qualify for the vaccine or people who were medically vulnerable. The idea that vaccines halt transmission of the virus was largely behind the CDC's decision in May suggesting vaccinated people could safely go without their masks indoors and in crowds, even if others were unvaccinated. But that assumption had been based on studies of earlier versions of the virus. Delta was known for its "hyper-transmissibility," or as one former White House adviser put it "COVID on steroids." "What has changed is the virus," said Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert and Biden's chief medical adviser. When a vaccinated person gets infected with delta -- called a "breakthrough infection" -- "the level of virus in their nasopharynx is about 1,000 times higher than with the alpha variant," Fauci said in an interview Wednesday with MSNBC. All indications now are that the Provincetown outbreak investigation is among the pieces of new evidence behind the CDC's decision to ask Americans to once again put on their masks indoors, even if they are vaccinated."   CDC mask decision followed stunning findings from Cape Cod beach outbreak - ABC News The CDC's mask decision followed stunning findings from a Cape Cod beach outbreak. The viral load of vaccinated beachgoers changed what we know about the delta variant.  
    • It would be interesting to know if they'd perform any differently with the belt device. As I wear a different wrist "health" tracking device the apple watch wouldn't work for me. Also, have you noticed any wear on the face of the sensors from rubbing on the bottom of your bag?
    • Had a birdie lip out on the final hole yesterday which would have given me a 67 and equal my age. But 68 is only the 2nd time I've ever shot that so pretty happy anyway. Golf is a crazy game. Last week I played 3 rounds and only had 1 birdie total. This week after 3 rounds I've had 15 birdies. Playing from the senior tees of course but this is the best golf I have played at anytime in my life and I have been at for over 50 years. Maybe it's time to retire. Ha. 
    • Breakthrough COVID infections show 'the unvaccinated are now putting the vaccinated at risk' Occasional breakthroughs are expected with any vaccine, but more transmissible variants... Now the choices of the unvaccinated are affecting those who have done the right thing. It’s now more like smoking where your “personal choices“ affect more than you.
