What'd You Shoot Today?

77-79 this weekend, let's just say not my best golf 🙄 Funny thing is I hit my driver fine, hit one OB today after hitting a tree limb on a par 5 where I try to cut the corner. Hit some offline approaches which is to be expected after not practicing all week and playing off basically mud after all the rain. Putting was horrible, don't think I made a putt over 2ft all weekend.

69 yesterday and 59 in a gross foursome scramble today. Scramble was a semi-final event, made it there by winning another scramble a few months back. 59 got us 5th and last spot to move on to the 36-hole finals in three weeks.

Went out Tuesday but shot a dismal 93 and just couldn't hit the ball well. Put it behind me and went out today and shot my best round ever. 37,40 for a 77.  Putter wasn't great with two 3 putts and only one 1 putt but the rest of my game was great. with 12 pars, 1 birdie, 4 bogeys and a double.  I shot an 80 last summer and have been trying to get under that ever since.  Didn't think it would be in the winter but very happy anyway.  Still very soft out and not much roll.  A hand warmer for the fingers is still part of my gear right now as it was only about 6 degrees C today.

72, hit it solid and putted well. Lots of solid 3-4 footers made for par. Didn't miss a drive all day, never done that before. Strong winds, greens got firm, had a tough time getting shots close. Also missed a couple greens early due bad club selection and hit crappy chips/pitches. 3 birdies, 3 bogeys.

Played 18 earlier today. Glad I did as I averaged 4.44 strokes per hole. This is exactly a 1/2 stroke per hole better than the round I played just a few days ago. 

My putter was doing pretty much what I asked of it. Made a few nice ones of the 27 I stroked.

Played with two friendly guys from up north some where. (Idaho?) We all shot in the 80s.  

Just a nice day on the course.

I played 18 today in St. Louis at Gateway National.  I teed off at 12:30pm and it was 26 degrees with snow flurries flying everywhere in the air.  The first 6 holes were cold and tested my resolve to get out and play...  Once it stopped snowing the sun came out and warmed up to the low 40s. I wasn't too concerned with my score today was just happy to get out playing.  After I finished the round, I tallied up my score and shot 84 (+13), 45 on the front nine and 39 on the back!  Easily my best score ever and in the worst conditions I have ever played in! What a funny game golf is! The sad thing is that my golf buddy, who opted out of playing today, doesn't believe my score is accurate... Haters going to hate!

81 on Wednesday, 89 on Thursday, too cold on Friday, and 75 (37-38) yesterday. Rain all day today, so I just called and cancelled our tee time for this morning.

72, hit some crappy drives, hit one OB after hitting a tree and going dead right. Then also bogied the easiest hole on the course. Pitching and putting were solid. 4 birdies, one double, two bogeys.

Man finally played a decent round today. Did some work on my preshot routine and my alignment last week. Made a big difference today. Started off 2 over after 4 holes caused by a bit of bad luck and one poorly stuck shot, but played the last 14 holes 3 under for a 71. Really hit some great shots including a 250 yard 4-iron laser that never left the flag on the par 5 15th hole. Driver could have been better, but was a step in the right direction.

Played 89 three straight rounds.  How's that for consistency?  But that won't get my HI down from 13.  I am overdue for an exceptional round.  Here's hoping.

I turned in an 86.   The only blemish was on the shortest & easiest par 5 hole which I usually par.   I scored a 9 as it took 3 tries to get out of bunker with one of those shots going out of bound.  Ugh!

54-44 yesterday at the Vinyard in Escondido, CA. Absolutely horrible front nine a total departure from my warm up......but the range does that at times. Pulling the driver and hybrid. Actually the whole group played like dung. But we managed to get around 18 needling each other and had fun

68, four birdies, an eagle and two bogeys. Other than making 6 on a par 5 from 50 yards, it was a solid, kinda boring round. Nice to hit my start lines today and not hit those flippy pulls I’ve been struggling with on approach shots.

Nice Mike...solid and boring certainly better  than disjointed and unpredictable. Great score Mike!

I turned 70 yesterday and played golf today....I played last Tuesday and shot 85.  I shot 89 today.   This is the first time in my life the I shot under 90 two times in a row, and only the 5th time that I have shot under 90.  I usually make a couple of pars per round.  Today I had 4 pars and a birdie on the front 9 and 3 pars on the back 9.  Unfortunately, i had a couple of 8's.  Gonna play again next week, gonna see if I can make it 3 in a row...

First time playing in about 3 months, visiting my uncle in Destin and played Kelly plantation. Shot 77. Got a couple lucky breaks and made a few putts.  Some chunked wedges hurt me.  Just fun to get out and play this time of year.

    • So basically it's okay to use it only when practicing on the course not when actually playing a round on the course. Because I do want to get carry distances for my clubs off turf conditions with real balls as opposed to mat conditions with range balls. Unfortunately it won't store tempo data so... it'll be course practice w/o score. 
    • Where’s this ‘hate’? I did this method and am currently doing it again as it is a bit easier on my back ( for me) and I hit much more consistent strikes using it. So that’s that. I’m very curious to read what people who know a hell of a lot about the mechanics of a golf swing and body mechanics in general say when they analyze it. Unfortunately you’ve taken the Jim attitude that any ‘negative’ remarks about it are of contempt. They’re not. @iacas and others who are very knowledgeable about golf and body mechanics have stated they feel this method limits power. Nobody including Jim himself has presented anything to show it doesn’t. 
    • Yesterday, I decided I needed to play golf to prepare for an event this weekend.  I found a good deal of Golfnow and headed out.  I had the first tee time in the morning in hopes that I'd be able to beat the impending rain.  Once there, I realized that someone else had booked the same time slot.  In a twist of fate, it happened to be someone I knew.  He's a better golfer than I am by a fairly large margin.  We played the front nine with both of us showing some rust.  I was playing from a set of tees one further back than I should have been (approximately 460 yards longer)... but it wasn't a huge factor.   As we finished the 9th hole... he asked me what a good score would be for me on the back side.  I told him that, from the tees I SHOULD be playing... a 43 would have been considered a good score.  He then told me that a good score for him would be 39 and challenged me to a 'beat your target' game.  His target being 39 and mine being 43, even from the longer set of tees.  I accepted figuring it'd be good for my game to play for something other than fun.   We both played better on this side: Hole # -- My Score - His Score #10 -- Par (4) - Par (4) #11 -- Par (4) - Double (6) #12 -- Double (6) - Bogey (5) #13 -- Bogey (6) - Par (5) #14 -- Par (3) - Bogey (4) #15 -- Bogey (5) - Bogey (5) #16 -- Bogey (6) - Par (5) #17 -- Par (3) - Par (3) #18 -- Bogey (5) - Bogey (5) Total -- 42 (+6) - 42 (+6) I ended up beating my target by a stroke, but what I felt even better about was that I tied him... playing from tees further back than I'd typically play... knowing he's a much better golfer than I am.  I know he was rusty... and on most days, he'd mop the floor with me on the golf course, but it certainly felt nice. Overall... I posted an 88 that included an ugly triple on the 7th hole when I topped my 3 wood into a hazard.  Not the greatest score for me, but I felt like things started to click again.  I've got to get some work in on my alignment.  I'm finding a lot of misses are pushes.  I've spent the better part of the last 7+ months battling a hook.  Now that it's straightened out a bit... I need to get my alignment proper so I can start finding fairways and greens. Anyway... what's your 'beating a better player' story?  I've got a few of them, but... this one felt good because it wasn't expected. CY
    • So I got a chance to play 18 this weekend. My first time hitting balls outside since December. We also had no reservation so when we got there we had a chance to go to 10 immediately or wait 2 hours. So no warm up except a mulligan on the first tee.    I must report that all the putting work I put in over the past two months has had an effect. I started with 4 putts on hole 10 and 11 🤪 and proceeded to have 25 putts on my first 9 holes. Luckily I picked it up after that and had 17 putts on the back 9 where I had 3 single putts, 2 from about 6-7” out. So short putts were improved from last season but lag putts were horrible. But that was to be expected as I was very limited in practice areas the past two months.    Rest of the game was all over the place. I hit some nice 3 woods of the tee with about 250yards total distance but my driver was all over the place. The distance increase of all my clubs was visible. I added about 10 yards to each club in carry distance. But since I didn’t exactly improve in accuracy the result was pretty much disastrous.    Shot 109 🤯 and that was with 3 or 4 OB shots. So now I won’t be playing for another month now, I got my next round planned for the 26th of March. I am really considering taking a regular lesson with my pro and just handing my swing over to him, but I don’t know if I got enough time to do that...   Another “ brilliant “ idea was to next time only go out with my 7 iron and down and see how I score without the big missing clubs.
