Another 92 (48+44) at my local links course .. +4 over HC

hit a bucket of balls prior to the game (think I should have had a Bigger Breakfast run out of energy 3hrs later in hotter winter temps than been use too)

same as last game some really brilliant shots- one downhill 3w fade 250 yards around pine trees to my right to land parallel to hole 15 feet off ....YESSS!!!

Nice birdie on mid-length PAR-4-- 80+ yard chip to 3 feet from behind a tree(this was after 2x pars) here I go

But a string of woeful 3 putts ...giving me 4x triple bogies ...with some very low energy stupid lost ball shots and chips than ended up many yards off the back of greens ... Rushing shots at times

Can't wait for it all click together and break 80 one of these days

Saturday 8/25

I shot 85 over about 6400 yards; 70.4/123. I had 7 GIR, and 4 near GIR. 50% on the 4 near GIR, both of which were sand saves. 37 putts which sounds worse than it was. Bead and speed were great; read was the problem. I had a lot of close misses, but the ball went where I was looking. I was just looking at the wrong place. A couple of lags I left too short, but again it was read- I thought it was faster than it was. I had one triple bogey, but no doubles.

Great round at a tough and NICE track on Saturday.  Really loving my driver.  79 at The Jewel.  I only missed 4 fairways.  11 GIRs.  This is very good for me.  Although 3 of my best drives resulted in me choking on the approach shot else the GIR 'could' have been awesome and not just very good.....  Mint course conditions and a super cool pair of guys I was assigned with (A dad and son-in-law).  The only club I had trouble with was the 3w - which is odd - it's become my go to club....

I really enjoy golf.  what a fun game!

 

Sunday played a tight course and just couldn't really get it together.  Mid 80's on the round.  Not a lot of fairways hit, but contact was good - pretty decent iron play though.  Slow greens.  Nice cooling rain on the 16th hole too.  that hole I uplofted a 7i over a stand of trees (middle of the fairway they block the approach, left half of fairway is the sweet spot - so of course, a fairway hit on this hole is no good if you baby fade it (this is one of the fairways I hit - in the wrong place.....)  But I got to pull off the hard approach anyway.  so nice shot.

Man, I really hate this game.

My personal best yesterday (8/26).  Shot an 87.

6250 yards.

11 FIR, only 4 GIR.  Made some great up and downs to save par.

Haven't played or practiced in weeks, shot 103 with 5 pars, 4 GIR, and one (1) sand save. The score was super bad but I kept pace and hit some very nice shots, and mostly lost strokes in stupid areas that are easily fixed. So, I'm not angry at all, and in fact I'm going to rededicate myself and try to salvage September before the rains return.

I played a different course for the first time today,  Slightly longer than my usual course, and higher rating/slope.  Shot 91, which is phenomenal for me.  Shot 43 for 9 holes last week; maybe there's hope for me yet.

Busted out of a slump in a big way at the home track with 74 (37/37). Made 2 bogeys and a birdie on each side. Was cruising on the back till I bogeyed 16 and 17. Then missed the green at 18 in the trap and holed out to close the day with a bird. Hit 13/18 GIR which would be my most ever. Only hit 5 fairways but my misses were all in play and not costly. Hit the ball big today. It was pretty much driver and sand wedge/gap wedge all day. When I hit big and straight drives off the 1st couple holes I kept hitting the big stick on some holes where I would typically hit an iron. Amazing what confidence can do for you. The only thing I have negative to say is that my distance control with my wedges wasn’t great. It was good enough to hit greens but I wasn’t giving myself great looks for birdie. My only birdies were the hole out from the bunker and a tap in on a par 4 which I nearly drove allowing me to chip to tap in range. Still after the shit show I was over the last couple weeks where I was approaching 90 some days I was more than happy to bang a low one and can’t wait to tee off tomorrow morning!

I work in retail so I had tues and wed off after working the weekend.... which meant 7a the last 2 days I was on the 1st tee! Continued my hot play with a 77 (38/39). Very angry worth the bogey at 2 and 9 as both are holes that have me thinking bird. Got on a roll for the 2nd straight day where I played 10-15 E and hit every green. 16-18 is always my worst. Played them +2 which is actually not bad. All in all decent day.

Muang Keaw in Bangkok today. 

Rental clubs took the front nine to figure out especially the irons.  Lots more offset with these.  But with all the water, I didn't lose a single ball.

45/39

and my first "eagle on a par 4" - 277 yard number 16 with the green surrounded by steep bunkers.  Carried them just fine (240 carry) and likely the roll just missed the cup (wouldn't that have been neat).  Four foot putt.  I walk to the tee with a 6i and my driver and I said "this club is smart, this one is fun" - caddies voted on driver.  Great shot, especially with a rental.

Friday shot 44-41 in mist, light rain. Couldn’t seem to adjust to wet slow greens . I was surprised and pleased that the course ,Longbow, was pretty empty

Played Monroe Golf Club. Put up a 49-49 split. Dissapointing number, but very encouraging results. 

After making a double on one, I made a quad on the par three two thanks to a pulled drive, and two duffed chips that only moved two feet. Add in a three putt and my round was off to a horrible start. 

I got to three and decided to just forget the bad start and continue focusing on what I have been working on with my swing mechanics. I then went on to put up 13 straight holes of bogie or par (12 bogies) before fatiguing a bit to finish the last three holes double, double, quad. The quad on 18 was a lazy blocked drive that left me in trouble to the right and I just brain darted and made poor decisions which only compounded the trouble. 

So bottom line, bad start and finish but in between was 13 holes that were exactly what I am trying to do at this point as a 22 handicap. 

The swing is improving greatly. (oh, and I putted very well. If not for a second straight round of poor chipping I would have been at least 5-7 shots better)

Had a personal best 83 yesterday. 12 over at my local club. I was delighted with that. 8 pars and two birdies. My driver is letting me down big time but my irons are going very well for the most part. If i can find the fairway with my driver I tend to have a good score.

29 stableford points today - didn't play badly at all, but putted like Ernie Els with the yips, which cost me a lot of shots. Not to worry, one of my playing partners, new to the game and playing off 30 got 41 pts, so wouldn't have had a chance either way.

Front 9 I shoot 38. 2 missed short par putts and a 3 putt from being -1 35. Then the heat beat the piss out of me and just fell apart. Took 4 penalty strokes en route to a 46 on back. Very frustrating to blow what was such a great start and throw it away! The stretch of 11-13 where I went double, bogey, triple, sucked!

Shot 100 on Saturday at Kiva dunes on my family vacation. Started Birdie, Bogey, Par, bogey, Bogey which is a fabulous start for me. Was in the riove until the 6th hole the wind started to pick up and by the ninth the wind was gusting well above 30 mph! I smoked a 8 iron on a par 3 8th....it was a 130 yards downhill and into the wind. 8 iron is my 140 club. Beautiful contact and the result was....115 yards and short of the green! On 18 I smoked a H3....into the wind a whopping 125 yards hahaha! Most brutal wind I have ever played in. Anywhere from a 3 to 6 club difference depending on the hole.  Only one or two holes played downwind all day.

73, 70 & 70 this weekend. Course is playing more difficult than a few months ago, rough is up, there's like four to five different types of grasses around the greens and the greens are slow or dying.

Club championship is coming up and it's three rounds of medal play so I was looking at this weekend as a pre-tourney and -3 would have won it last year by three. I think the closest player to me this weekend was +5. So hopefully a sign of good things to come 💪

    • Day 170.  I got home way too late, but remembered the challenge so I'm doing some of UGP's stretches.  Probably good given how little I moved today.  (Incidentally, earlier today I saw my future golf room for the first time, better than the previous one!  Ten days until setup!)
    • Almost always putt. Either with my putter or a club from PW-7 iron using the same putting stroke depending the pin location and grass condition. 
    • Yeah you must’ve missed that. It was posted earlier by @fredf then reposted by @Missouri Swede.
    • This is good stuff and interesting to hear from someone that plays on such big greens. I have never had that luxury/challenge, depending on the green. I find it so interesting that some people love partial shots (could be full swing but reduced power), and others don't want any part of it. For me, in that same situation of 100 yards with back edge at 110, this is how I would take it. Full shots are 80-85 yards for 53o, 95-100 yards for PW, 110 yards for 9I. I would almost always take a 9I into this green, unless there is serious trouble long. A 85-95% 9 iron is going to leave me on the green almost all of the time, barring L-R miss. If I hit it super pure, or I have some extra adrenaline pumping, I'm over for sure, but close. If it is sloping toward the back, then its a pitching wedge, and an almost certain downhill putt, but that's the nature of the beast. I use a Garmin approach S20, which is fairly basic, but has done a really good job of telling me center, front and back of the greens when I have played. When I know the pin layout for the day, I do cater to that, but if I have any doubt, or it is scary at all, I play for the center
    • I have gone through the replies and the main claim is 'Serious misconduct'. I get that but it seems like a grey area. open to interpretation.  I can't find any section of the rules that describe the scenario that i provided and the rules are very specific in terms of objects, balls hit, touched, where participants stand, act etc. There are other reasons the said example could count as legitimate play. Perhaps Player B is putting away from the hole because he wants an easier uphill putt to finish the hole. Also if  Player B's ball is directly opposite Player A's ball and putts it pass the hole and just pass his partners mark it is an over hit and the putt coming back is going to show the line for the next putt. Misconduct or inherent part of the game. Have we lost the freedom to decide on the direction of the next stroke. NB. The 4BBB I am referring to would be part of a Team Stableford competion. So there is no conceding putts involved.   Ahhh I have found some clarity. Point 7.  1.2a/1 - Meaning of Serious Misconduct The phrase “serious misconduct” in Rule 1.2a is intended to cover player misconduct that is so far removed from the expected norm in golf that the most severe sanction of removing a player from the competition is justified. This includes dishonesty, deliberately interfering with another player’s rights, or endangering the safety of others. The Committee must determine if the misconduct is serious considering all the circumstances. Even if the Committee determines that the misconduct is serious, it may take the view that it is more appropriate to warn the player that a repeat of the misconduct or similar misconduct will result in disqualification, instead of disqualifying him or her in the first instance. Examples of actions by a player that are likely to be considered serious misconduct include: Deliberately causing serious damage to a putting green. Disagreeing with the course setup and taking it on himself or herself to move tee-markers or boundary stakes. Throwing a club towards another player or spectator. Deliberately distracting other players while they are making strokes. Removing loose impediments or movable obstructions to disadvantage another player after that other player has asked him or her to leave them in place. Repeatedly refusing to lift a ball at rest when it interferes with another player in stroke play. Deliberately playing away from the hole and then towards the hole to assist the player’s partner (such as helping the player’s partner learn the break on the putting green). Deliberately not playing in accordance with the Rules and potentially gaining a significant advantage by doing so, despite incurring a penalty for a breach of the relevant Rule. Repeatedly using vulgar or offensive language. Using a handicap that has been established for the purpose of providing an unfair advantage or using the round being played to establish such a handicap. Examples of actions by a player that, although involving misconduct, are unlikely to be considered serious misconduct include: Slamming a club to the ground, damaging the club and causing minor damage to the turf. Throwing a club towards a golf bag that unintentionally hits another person. Carelessly distracting another player making a stroke.
