What'd You Shoot Today?


Recommended Posts

97 today. Another poor round. My handicap will now be over 23. I started the year at 21. Swing didn’t really feel good today. Hitting too many duffs and topped shots. Short Game was abysmal. 37 Putts.

Played TPC Piper Glen today, probably had the best 78 I’ve ever shot.

39-39-78 1 birdie, no doubles, no sixes round.

5 4 4 4 4 5 4 5 4 -39   5 4 3 5 4 5 4 4 5 - 39. 78

So why would a 79 be a great round, come to find out the course will be closed in 3-weeks in order to redo the greens and fairways.  The greens were so hard, you almost couldn’t get a ball to stop on the greens.  And not only were they hard as bricks,  but they almost all sloped front to back.  And if you did finally get one to stop, you were left with some mighty long putts. After a few holes, it was almost comical to see the ball hit the green and bounce as far as it did.  I never had to fix a ball mark all day, never made one and I hit a lot of greens, albeit the ball didn’t stay on it.  

 I thought the layout was superb, so can’t wait to come back when it’s been redone.  I’ll post some pictures tomorrow if i have a chance. There were a lot of impressive houses surrounding the course.

I played Saturday and shot 90.

I had 7 GIR and 6-7 near GIR. Putting was not good --greens were very slow and I could not adjust. By slow I mean 60-70% of normal speed. Line was generally good. I spent about an hour on the putting green post round.

I am about 1 club short on my irons. I have been working with a shorter backswing to improve contact, and am making progress, so hopefully speed will come as I am able to increase swing length. I still had a couple of bad contacts.

Wedge play needs work. I especially need work on near full  shots with 48, 52, and 56.

I only had one unplayable drive-not too far off line, but against a small tree. Distance not where I want, but not terrible for me for conditions.

Overall, I am somewhat pleased with progress and think I am working on the right things.

Shot 77 yesterday and only three putted once. I was pretty thrilled about that. The greens were slower yesterday so I think that helped some. My handicap, however, is inching upward (now I'm 1.9).

Lord, I don't wanna know.

Started off birdie, par, par then it turned ugly.  I stopped counting. I could figure it out, if I wanted to, but I prefer to never know.

Horrible day, Played the white tees, Dye Course at Barefoot. Shot 91, with two chip ins from 20  and 15 yards off the green, and made 2 putts over 25 feet, so my score should've been a lot worse. My mid and short irons are a disaster right now. Just can't hit a green. Finished a 3 lesson package last week, trying to fix an inside takeaway and over the top move. I feel like I'm in knots right now, nothing feels comfortable or "natural" with my game. The frustrating part is, on the range I'm more at ease and able to make the move I'm trying to. Once I get to the course, I'm lost.

75 this morning. 1 birdie, 4 bogeys, and 13 pars. Maybe hitting those 250 balls at the range yesterday helped.

71 at Whispering Woods from mixed tees.

http://www.gamegolf.com/player/iacas/round/2084338

Played pretty well, really. A few goofy shots here and there, but got away with a few, and also missed a few putts I could have/should have made.

A hard to swallow 99 on a new course, Links with fast greens.

Par'ed 4 of the last 6 holes to come in with 18 point back 9 (+3 for the 6 holes)

Taking the best back 9 prize at least.

Down to 19hcp from 20 last year, hoping to go below 18 this year

84 today, a personal best.  Could've been better, I tripled the 18th which is a fairly easy par four.  Overall I'm pretty damn happy about the round.

    • If he was gay would it matter that he used that word? Again same premise, gay man missed putt yells out in anger not to anyone just yells out in frustration the word. Does that make a difference to the reactions? 
    • Most amateurs myself included are not good enough to swear about a bad shot. I mean what’s really on the line?  Pro’s on the other hand have a lot at stake. Losing a sponsor is a pretty big deal. Will it impact Justin? Initially, but it will wear off over time. But as some already stated, the noise generated from the crowds bring out the comments from the players loud and clear.  Technology could fix it yes but it would look and sound edited.   A Gentleman’s Game? Not lately!  Compared to other sports it was probably nothing if it was just the F-Word but adding the homophobic after was the deal breaker.  Pretty sure Titleist won’t dump him.
    • We appreciate it! ...if you charged $200 an hour, I’d be SOL for the next 10 years or so
    • I just recently bought the book from Amazon. Very interesting concept. Tom Saguto has a ton of videos on the subject & has an online golf school. He recently attended a Stack & Tilt seminar in Florida hosted by Mike & Andy. Tom's videos are on u-tube.
    • Day 11 - Worked on post impact follow through as I tend to stop rotating and making chicken wings.  Was able to do late setting sun chips/pitches where I could barely make out the flagsticks in the fading light.  Went to “see it/feel it/trust it” mode focusing on what I am feeling thru the setup, backswing, downswing and follow thru.....
