What'd You Shoot Today?


Recommended Posts

44 for 9 holes. Not too shabby for a week where my swing seemed to disappear. Two or three holes in things started to feel somewhat normal again. Still hit some poor shots, but they all stayed in play. And I almost drove the green on the 8th. Short 250 yards par 4...so close but not cigar. Nice par though.

Shot 67 this morning. I had 8 birdies tying my personal record. Left my 9th birdie right on the lip on 18. Hit 13 greens and had 28 putts. The claw grip just keeps on paying off.

66 today with the weekend group. Was -7 thru 13, unfortunately bogeyed 16 and 17, but the shots weren't all that bad. No 3-putts, lots of solid swings coming down the stretch.

A tale of 2 rounds this weekend.

Saturday, I probably played about as bad as I could play.  Couldn't hit my driver in play, had 4 penalty strokes, putted horribly, it was down-right ugly.

40-44-84 1 birdie, 5 pars, 6 sixes, ugh!

Sunday went the other direction

36-38-74 2 birdies, 12 pars and 1 double. 

A 10 stroke swing over two rounds, :surrender:

On a separate note, heading to Streamsong on Wednesday afternoon.  :banana:    :beer:

2018-10-15 08_36_07-Facebook.jpgFriday after work - Willingers (a great Gill/Miller course in the area - In the fall I try to play the nicer courses under fall rates - i've hit 2 of the 5 I like so far).  75 - great conditions.

Startled these two on 16 and they ended up following me in the woods on the side through 17 and to the tee on 18.

By Sunday it was snowing......

Last Wednesday's round was 78, Friday, shot 79, Saturday a 77, and then yesterday, Sunday, reality set in and shot an 85. I know I have the swing and game, I just can't keep my mind set straight. Playing 6 times in the next 7 days. I better straighten the mental side up.

95. Played poorly, but was working on some new feels. One positive note is I came as close as I may ever come to a hole in one...2.5 feet! Almost slam dunked it..and yes I made the putt for birdie lol.

Under par streak ended today, shot 72, which is fine because my swing felt crappy from start to finish. Also missed two straight forward up and downs, carried the pitch/chip too far both times in combination with mis-judging the speed of the greens. Just one of those days but still managed to grind out a decent score. Most importantly our team still won the $.

89 with two triples caused by two drives going OB.  I tried to hit Puig like home run on those drives but the balls darted to far right instead.  Other than the two tripled holes, I had strings of par and bogeys.   I

Shot a 95 from the tips of an easy, wide open course (around 6,000 yards). After a rocky start, I started hitting my driver pretty well, getting decent carry for the first time in a while. I only hit 3 GIR (and of course failed to hit par on each), but I had so many nGIR's - 6 putts from off the green (all from within a couple yards) and several chips.

I use a partial swing from almost every shot 125 yards and in. Today I had trouble with club face control and most went slightly right - hence the nGIR's. For the majority of the holes, the full swing put me in position to make pars but I failed to convert.

Shot my lowest round, 63, weird thing is I was just missing it well and putter was really solid. Definitely had better ball striking (contact wise) rounds lately.

Out of eight makable birdies putts, inside of around that 7-8ft circle I made six of them. Then made two 25 footers and chipped one in just off the green on 16, almost putted it but changed my mind lol

I got really nervous on 17 tee, never been -8 before and just stuck with the process and managed to birdie 18.

Now trending to +4 😳

    • yeah, this "carpet" runs around 11 in one direction and 10 in the opposite, so it's faster than most greens I play on, but I'm just working on the consistency of my motion so it works. It's definitely nice to have
    • Bulking up doesn't necessarily lead to lack of flexibility or inability to hit the golf ball. Even when people complained about Tiger bulking up, he was no where near as big as professional body builders and didn't inhibit his golf swing.  I think people would have to go really far with bulking up before it becomes a detriment to their ability to swing a golf club. 
    • Day 58 (Mar 05 2021) - 1-2-3 drill with putter this morning.  1 pace from cup - single ball, make it into the putting green cup and move to 2 paces out, now I have to make 2 balls in a row before moving to 3 paces out and of course 3 balls have to be made before I get to 4 paces which for my short stride is the limit of the green.  Focused on keeping head still and not "looking" - target point a spot on the mat about 18" in front of the ball.  Followed this up with going with 8 balls in a row from each position before moving to the next (why 8 - its all the "real" golf balls I have in the house, may scarf another 4 from the used ball pile in the shop to give an even dozen to work with).   Makes me jealous that the hall at the house (which is where I work as well) is not fully carpeted as it is about the same length.  Then again - the hardwood floor can offer challenges when putting with the plastic ball - like putting on ice.....
    • Basically golf requires you to be flexible and strong, not necessarily bulked up. Rory or DJ have the ideal build for golf
    • I wonder if anybody will actually aim to drive the green on #6.  Rory is long enough to get there, considering he outdrove Bryson today.  I just think the risk is too high if you get it wrong. Onto another topic. I believe Rory can actually win this tournament and in doing so be the favourite to win another major at Augusta.  His game is peaking well enough
