What'd You Shoot Today?

77 today, funny thing is I hit the driver really well and contact was solid. I had been fighting a little pull the past couple months and got use to playing for it. Practiced this week and start lines got a lot better but was tough to trust it. All my approach shots were erring a little right of where I wanted and it was enough to have me miss a good amount of greens. Mix in some bad club selection and a crappy short game day and that was my round today 😑

So when this happened (2-3?) times did you continue to apply your swing and just didn’t get the result you wanted? Or did you try to play the shot hoping your compensation (playing more left) would put you on target? Does this question make sense?

102. 48 on the front 9 and was on course to break 100 until I 4 putted from 8 feet on the 14th hole after a lovely drive and 2 flush iron shots. I was so angry with myself and fell apart for the next 3 holes.

68 today, two eagles, three birdies and three bogeys. Two of them were 3-putts.

Crazy game. Great weekend off the tee, hitting it hard and taking out the left side.

I honestly wasn't sure if it was just something that day or if my swing was better . I just kept trying to apply my swing since it was working great off the tee and contact was solid.

I probably shouldn't have said all my approach shots were erring right, some of my other missed greens were online with my target and just bad club selection/missed calculated yardage.

68...Nice Mike!

That makes sense. I was asking because I know I’ve watched tournaments and seen a player erring to one side with a rather perplexed look. I’m thinking ...well hell just plan for it. But then I figure guys at that level and yours too of course probably feel they can straighten it out. But before you know it you’ve played 14 holes....I was just curious. Thanks. Great score though..damn putting...where the money is. (Lol).

Right, like I said my shot zone has shifted a little left the past a few months, so it's two months of "data" vs 14 holes. And obviously sometimes you don't know whether it's just a miss, an alignment issue or a new pattern.

Good news is I've stuck with my feels, start lines are straightening out and today I trusted it.

103 (49,54) on a 68.7 / 124.  Not bad for me.  I should have broken 100 for the first time but I 3 putted four holes on the back 9 and had 5 bad holes of triple or more (3 OB) .  Did hit 9 of 13 fairways. Very happy with that. Overall a pretty good day.

I shot a 79 albeit from a shorter tee.  It has been raining and I didn't think I will hit long enough to enjoy my round.   This was my 1st round of 2019 and I am off to a very good start.   I plan to get my HI down to 11+ and I need rounds like this one to do it.

Shot a nice 80 on Sunday.  Didn't have time to get there early, just stepped onto the first tee.  3-putt double to start, then three more bogeys, one a 3-putt, to go +5 through 4.  Then +3 through last 14, hitting the ball great.  It was really cold so even lost a few shots choosing the wrong club for the conditions, coming up short twice and long twice hitting the shot I wanted, though I got two of those up and down.  Shot of the day though was this.  Two putted for birdie.

What difference a day makes!   Shot a 90 today albeit from longer tee.  Every part of my game was ho hum.

There is a "new" 9 hole course very near to my house.  It was rebuilt over the summer so I am just playing the course for only the second time.  Rather narrow fairways with a lot of bare desert and shallow traps all around.  Some water, but none of my round objects wanted a bath, though one ended up about a club length short.

Hit 55 on a par 36, 3,400 yard, 9 hole course. Longest 9 I have played all year and I would say I gave up 10 or so strokes to poor course planning by hitting shots that were played with the wrong club for the shot to be taken.  I usually played a club too short.  I have baked a lot of information for future play.  Hit only 2 GIR and both ended up as pars.  I had the rest as doubles for the most part. No snowmen but the grim reaper (7) did appear.

No penalties, no OB, but a somewhat odd play out of the deepest trap should have brought a round of laughter if I were not playing alone.  Tee shots were rather on line, so focus will be on hybrids.  Not sure they were awful, but I did not always get the distance I was looking for.

So all in all, about what I expected for the first round in just under 3 weeks; I have allowed for great room for growth.

Yesterday I played my "easy" winter course.  75 (around a 9.1 differential).  A couple birdies and no doubles.  It was partly sunny, around 50 degrees and little wind.  The course was a quagmire with fuzzy greens but it felt great to be out there.  Right now it is 20 degrees, snowing and windy.  Sigh.  Clubs are going back into the basement.

81/80 ESC. Terrible day for the par 5's. Triple bogey for the first par 5, double bogey's on all the rest of them. A couple more bogey's and doubles, but 3 birdies did help.

Friday will be better.

Played first game of the year Monday. Only front nine was open due to frost on the back and the front was very wet. Played from the blues and shot 46, played it again and shot 44. One birdie, one 3 putt, no errant drives with a new driver. Played to my cap, felt I should have scored better but a few fat shots and soggy bunkers didn't help my cause.

Played the Avi Resort (Mojave) course this morning down in Laughlin NV. 6900+ yards, 73/126 back tees. 

Played with a couple of youngsters that I am now friends with. I think they were in their late 30s, or early 40s..

Shot an 84. Shot of the day was a "very lucky" 50 yardish pitch shot for a bird. Also made a few nice putts. No 6s, but probably a few too mant 5s. 

Course was in great condition, and the weather was near perfect for golf. Walked off the last green with the low score of our trio.

Played Diamond Bar GC on 12/29. 

Played the front nine in 3+ hours... 52. Got to 10 tee box and looked over at 1 and saw it empty. Jumped over and played front 9 again. Shot 52 again. Hit 2 balls out of bounds. Did not strike the ball well. Did not putt well (at all). 

Playing the morning after my 1st lesson in a while was a REALLY bad idea, but it was 65F and bright and sunny and no wind and my family was out of town so I had all day to do it with no rush at all.... so I couldn't resist.

Back to practice!!!

    • KC to FL, then Springfield, MO to FL, twice a year for more than 20 years. Our key was to time it so we did not go through Atlanta at rush our, so our overnight going down was one of the first exits after Atlanta.  Coming back, same thing going the other way. Then, Atlanta got so bad that we don't ever go that way any more. Also 30 years ago I got a call on a Saturday morning that I needed to deliver a vehicle to Miami at 7:00 Monday morning.  Sure thing, I told them, easey  peasey. Not!
    • That's not true. I don't give absolute weight to "18 > 14" or 15 but it's a "valid argument." Just not one that sways me. There is, both theoretical and actually practical. At the same time, the odds of a strapping 25-year-old from Siberia becoming a world class golfer are also lower than from, say, Florida, so the practical is much lower than the theoretical. Yes. @klineka quoted an old post I made, and I was reminded of things like 49 players in Q-School and stuff like that. Stuff I'd looked up once but have long since forgotten since nobody's made a compelling (to me) argument in favor of Jack since.
    • Yup . . . "Too many golf courses completing for golfers." A general answer to some of the replies, to try to explain why we run our business the way we do . . . we are in a small regional tourist area that has become a hotbed of excellent golf courses.  Three of Golfweek's Top Ten in the State are here.  It is highly competitive between us and 6 other courses, and, frankly, the market is not big enough to keep all of them busy. "Running people off" would not be in our best interest.  We have as a last resort, but it's not high on our list.  "Running people off" would likely get us the reputation of "running people off." As I have said a few times, I prefer us being out there on the course, being encouraging, supportive, and diplomatic, and, when that does not work, to offer the victims of slow play a chance to come back and experience our #1 course under better conditions, at a discount. Turning Lemons into Lemonade. But, understanding my role, it's not my call, and will be what will be.
    • Unless you have figured out something that I haven't, which is certainly possible, there's no way to move a shot from one hole to another, without deleting it and adding a new one.  Getting it in the right spot is a bit iffy at that point.  I've had cases where it puts an entire hole one the next hole, and skips a hole entirely.  I have not seen any means to even add the missing hole, the round will claim to have 17 holes.  As I mentioned, it never did this before that update (that was in preparation for PRO, I believe).  It doesn't always happen, even on the same holes, it doesn't happen on all rounds on the same course.  It's a puzzler.  The part that disturbs me the most is that even a tiny amount of software intelligence would eliminated it most of the time.  If the previous shot was a putt on a green, and the next shot some other club from thirty yards off the green, it's probably a new hole.  If not, that mistake would be way easier to understand. It happens to me when I've tagged every shot.  I live with the results, and usually don't bother trying to edit it out.  If I want to see, I can see where the shots were taken, and I know the total.  It is frustrating when it shows my drive going back to the previous green, though. I could see that, but it doesn't seem to me what is happening in my case.  As something of a engineer geek, it just seems sloppy.
    • This is a completely separate discussion, but I'm not a big fan of South Carolina mustard-based BBQ sauce.  I'd suggest stopping in NC for some vinegar-based sauce on smoky pork BBQ. As for the drive, I routinely go from Northern Virginia as far as Rocky Mount in NC, and we see the wotrst backups consistently between Fredericksburg VA and Washington DC.  If you can avoid being southbound in the after-lunch hours, or northbound on Sunday afternoon, you'll usually avoid the worst of it.
