Shot 93. 

Played better than I scored, just couldn't get out of the sand on one hole (took three tries), and just sucked on most around the green shots in general.

I broke 100 for the first time this morning with a 99!

Ate lunch and went back out and shot an 86!  Got my first birdie ever in that round.  Followed by two more.

Played 9 holes today. It was a bit too warm to play more than that. Humidity is way up there.

Shot a 40, with 5 pars, and 4 bogies. 

I was able to use a green side shot I have been working on for quite a while. I'm going to use it when not close enough to chip. It's a no wrist hinge pitch shot. It's basically a Runyon putting stroke, using a longer back stroke. I just add a little more forward hip turn.  It's good for me up to about 20-25 yards. I holed one out today for a par.

Well, shot a 42-41=83 on a par 72 course from the Senior tees (I'm 65), but it felt a lot worse than that! When you have 2 birdies on the back, and can do no better than a 41, it gives you some idea of what an up and down round it was.

I kind of got my wedge figured out on short pitches, and I was able to deliver some effective "stingers" from bad places to get back into play, but overall an inconsistent round!

Played the back 9 at my home course. Shot a 39.  6 pars, and 3 bogies. Made a 20' putt on the last green for a par. 

I had played the front nine earlier this morning. Took a long break in between due to high humid conditions. 

The course was still pretty moist, but I did use a few more irons than I did earlier. My Ironwoods, with the wider soles, worked well for me. 

The course has a summer rate that is the same for 9, 18, or any number of holes played up to 18. Cart rental is extra. Since I had paid earlier in the day, the back nine, although played a few hours later, was still included in the original fee.. Only difference was I paid for cart for the back nine. The morning nine I walked. They treat us very well.

Played 9 holes. Shot a 42. I was walking, so with the heat, and humidity, I took my time. I didn't hold anyone up, so no worries there. 

Had 16 putts, 1 bird, 1 double, and the rest were either par, or bogey 1s. Didn't lose a ball either. In fact, now that I think about it, I have not lost a ball in my past 36 holes. 

I actually played 11 holes. After the first 9, I took a break, then played #11, and #18 which brought me back to the club house. Parred both of them. Lipped out a 15' putt on #18 that would have given me another bird. 

I will be back later this evening with my Granddaughter after she gets off work. She will be hitting 50-75 yard shots, as part of her learning process.

Played horrible this week. On tuesday, played 9 holes the course is very wet so it's shortened to mostly par 3's. Some par 3 are 260 but to a green that it's quite sloped so they turn quite difficult, plus some holes were played in heavy rain. Shot +5.

On wednesday I payed 9 again, but played the two par 5's as par 5's, shot +1.

Yesterday, again 9 holes, shortened, shot +5 with a triple bogey in number 3.

Got out for a rare weekday round and shot a typically crappy number, but played with a personable fellow that just graduated Troy High School. His grandpa gave a set of clubs and he is now learning to use them. 

Like many newbies, it was a battery of slices, fats and skulls for most of the 18, but he had some moments.

We were on the last hole, a long par 4, and he'd hit his second fairway of the day.  Waiting for the green to clear, he asked for the yardage and what club to use. I told him to not worry about the yardage so much and hit the club he had the most confidence in. So from 215, he hits a rocket with his 7W to the back fringe. 

I think we have a golfer.

Had a 43 (8 over) last night, easily lost 3-5 shots due to horrible putting, but in general pretty happy. My strikes with my wedges were really good, too good in fact, as they were flying a bit too far compared to what I'm used to. No complaints though, I'll take shots going further than expected due to better striking to shorter than expected due to poor striking.

Shot a 40 for 9 holes this afternoon. 4 bogies, 5 pars, and 17 putts. Had a long one putt for par. 

I hit a lot of 7W, and 5I punch shots. Seemed to be the best shots I had going for me today. Fairway dirt is still pretty wet from the rains, and irrigation. Played pretty  consistent today. Nothing real bad, and nothing really good. 

For my past 63 holes, I have been averaging 4.55 strokes per hole, which for me is pretty good. Switching back to my older set of Ironwoods, has been a pleasent surprise too.

Had the dog with me this evening, so played first 4 holes thrice, which surrounds a pond for her to cool down. 3 bogeys on the 2nd, 3 birdies on the 4th. Creatures of habit? 2 more bogeys and parring the rest left me greenside on the short par4 5th (my 13th and last) with an 20ft eagle chip at +2. Finished +3. 🙄 

@Patch Hi, is that funky putter double sided? Sound like good hitting today, few more putts dropped and that could have been tasty.

On Wednesday I shot a 48 in my league.  Player I played against had "best round in a year" and beat me.

Today I played a new course and shot a 98.  Player I played against "had the best round all year" and whooped me by 10 strokes.

 

So if you want to have a great round, come out and play with me, apparently.

49-52 101. Atsugi Golf Course, Atsugi NAF Japan. Back 9 is closed due to irrigation system maintenance, so played the front twice. 

Very happy with the round overall. I feel like I am finally putting it together a bit.

Disappointed that I left some shots out there though. One bad (wedge!) OB on hole 1, ended up making 8. Hit some really great tee shots, and only one real bad one. Also hit some neat pitches and chips. Also chunked a couple of each of those. Felt like I made no putts. 

Second best score ever (100), and best in over 5 years, so, definitely happy with that! 

Gutted that I didn’t hold it together to break the century mark for the first time, though. 

First two holes were 8,7,5, last three holes were 7,7,4. Decently smooth sailing besides that.

No 9’s, 10’s or worse. That’s a big day for me! Things are trending the right way.

    • Who faced the tougher competition?   My analysis covers the 20 Masters Tournaments Woods has played in as a pro (1997 – 2019), and the first 21 Masters Tournament Nicklaus participated (1960 – 1982).   The Masters Tournament was chosen because the Masters is the only event played on the same course—Augusta National—each year.   I have one underlying assumption with regards to Tournament scoring. Golfing technology and equipment have steadily advanced. However, after researching the USGA opinions and the course overhauls that occurred in response to the technological advancements, I believe course designers have done a job preserving the emphasis on the player skill.    My assumption is that the efforts by executive committees to create more challenging courses has offset the permitted use of more advanced equipment. As a result I feel confident that the Tournament scores from the Nicklaus period in the sample (1960-1982) can be compared to the Masters leaderboards from the Woods period (1997-2019) within the margin of error of any statistical adjustment.      I merged the field from Woods’ first Tournament in ’97 with the field in Nicklaus’ first Tournament in ’60, maintaining the cut line at the top 50 qualifiers. I simply repeated this process through the 2019 and the 1982 Masters Tournaments.   In this period that I assessed, Woods did not participate in three tournaments ’14, ’16, and ‘17. Nicklaus did not participate in one tournament in ’67. Although the Masters Tournaments in ’61, ’73, 2003-2007 were played in poor weather conditions, after reviewing the cut lines, only ’03 and ’05 seem to be significantly affected by weather. A slight adjustment was made to players scores to normalize the scores.    After taking measure among the qualifiers during the merged tournaments displayed in the link, I found that the level of difficulty increased in the Woods’ era 28.1%.   ·     68% of the top 50 lowest qualifying scores are from the Woods’ era See 2ndsheet in link, labelled “top 50”   Additional Findings:   -      After merging the best of the two periods, Woods finishes with an estimated 4 green jackets and Nicklaus finishes with 2. -      If Woods competed in the Nicklaus period, Woods would have an estimated 9 green jackets. If Nicklaus competed in the Woods era, Nicklaus would have an estimated 5 green jackets. *Note: Nicklaus finished his career playing in 15 additional Masters Tournaments beginning in 1983. Woods is still active as of 2019. -      Woods finishes the 23 Tournament sample 106 below par. Nicklaus finishes the 23 Tournament sample 75 below par. Missing the hypothetical cut = +10 towards Masters career score.    Woods vs. Nicklaus  
    • A buddy of mine gave me a Bobby Jones 460cc black driver today and I played absolutely great with it! Highlight of today's round, however, was a beautiful 3 wood onto a par 3 that landed about 7-8 feet from the hole. There must have been a closest to the pin challenge earlier in the morning, because a marker was out there. My shot would have won it today had I been there to play in it 🙂 Overall, really solid round. Still some inconsistencies with iron play, but it's getting the better (the last three holes were really good with my 6, 7, 8, and W). 
    • Who knows. Maybe not happy that Nick reported the 2017 Champions Dinner story in the media. Tiger might have said things in that room that he expected the other Champions to keep to themselves instead of spouting to the media about it.
    • Not sure if it counts, but: Scrambled with some great guys today (foursome). We played an absolutely beautiful course. Shot a 73. 
    • You do realize my response was to “Diece”? But addressing your post, glad you are improving. However, even at 59, I usually play at 6700+ yards. On a mini tour, you will be at 7200 minimum, and expected to be under par, at least if you plan to play for a living. either way, golf should never define you. And making boast about a difficult game is a recipe for disappointment. But like most of the folks on this site, we will be ok if proven wrong. Will you be ok if we are proven right?
