87, a decent score.   Started out poorly with two triples but recovered with lots of pars the rest of the way.   Perseverance!

100 (71/135). Not a good score, and didn’t really hit the ball consistently well all day. But I fought hard and actually had a decent score going until the last 4 holes. Fell apart.

An 87 today.  That's 5 straight rounds in 80s which I think may be my longest such streak.   This is the last round I will play in 2018 and I finished the year playing my best golf ever.  Nine years of playing golf and I can't believe I am still improving.   Am looking forward to my next round in 2019.  Happy new year to you all!

Shot 92 today (72 nett) for even my handicap and beat my 3 single hdcp friends who all shots 5+ over their daily hdcp :). The 6 hdcp friend who hasn't golfed in 8 months played 22 strokes over (he got 2-3 birdies, and eagle putts as expected, but he's also got a few double pars :D)

Funny day today. Youngest Granddaughter wanted to go "hang with G-Pa" at the golf course. 

So we played 9 nine holes. The big deal for her was I let her drive the cart. 

To be honest, I have no idea what my (ours')  scores were. I know I had 6 pars, and no 6s. G-Daughter did make a long 15' foot putt, which made her day. Cost me a trip to Mc D's for ice cream.

Still, driving the cart was her happy program for the day. 14 years old and in charge......lol

lIt's the Holliday Season. G-Kids rule.

Merry Christmas to everyone.

Saturday had a 96 on my home par 67.  Three pars, four bogeys.  Best part was I hit 7 of 11 fairways, which, as I have been struggling with a severe slice was a victory,  I think I have it figured out finally.  35 total putts, 20 on front(2 three putts, not good) 15 on the back. Looking forward to lowering my handicap in 2019.  The goal is to get to 18.

73 today. 2 birdies, 14 pars, a bogey and a double. Just kept saying to myself, fairways and greens, fairways and greens. Smart golf for a change.

66 today, one of those rare days where golf felt easy. Was never in any real danger of making a bogey, ball was basically going where I was aiming it and distance control was great. Left a few birdie putts short but putting was solid, made all the 3-6 footers I "should" make.

Last round of 2018 today.  December has been milder than usual with the temperature today hitting 55 degrees.

Shot 76, which looks better than it really was (66.9/120).  The course is very short.  Conditions in December are always a bit rough.  Really soggy fairways and furry greens but it was a blast.  I wanted to play all three nines but I was a touch fatigued from walking yesterday and today and the other nine was packed with players getting a last round in, too.

    • 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.
