What'd You Shoot Today?

69, three birdies, no bogeys. Hit 14 greens, gave myself a lot of good chances and even though I didn't make anything, I hit a lot of good putts. One birdie was a two-putt, and the other two were up and downs to gimme range on par 5's. One three-putt for par but it was from 60ft.

I should also point out that the last couple weeks we've been playing lift, clean and place through the green since it's been raining/wet.

Last week was way too cold to play golf here in Florida. Down in the 40's. I know, most of this group would love to see 40, but for me, since I can play any day, 40 is just way too cold.

Friday it warmed up and late getting to the course, so I carded an 87. Saturdays round dropped to an 81, and yesterday, while I was on my way to an 81 or 82, I birdied 15 and 16 to bring it back to a respectable 79.

88!!! Okay, that was for 19 holes.  Our city's executive course leaves the "flat seven" open year round, conditions permitting.  I toured the "7" twice and skipped around a 3-some on #1 and did 3-7 a third time.

We had 8 inches of snow and then the "polar vortex" last week.  We approached record highs this past weekend.  All the show is gone.  Yes, everything is extremely soggy but I managed to make a few decent swings.

78 yesterday at emerald bay and 82 today at regatta bay.   I’m ok with how I played this trip since I hadn’t played in a few months.  Excited to work on my game for a couple months and wait for some good weather back home.

I shot a 75 today. I only played 8 holes.

I did par one hole. And it is not an easy par 5. I just managed to hit a good 3 wood from the fairway, followed by 2 good 7 iron shots. Then I holed the 12' putt. Easy peasy.

My golf swing is a bit rusty these days. I'm looking forward to some improvement in scoring, as the weather gets better. Yeah, I'm taking lessons.

I am on a roll and I hope it keeps on rollin'...Shot my 3rd consecutive round under 90.  Shot an 88, and for the first time I played a complete round with the same ball.  I did not lose one ball today.....

I played 54 holes last week.  I averaged 4.46 strokes per hole, which I am quite pleased with.

Just hitting, and putting the ball consistently well.  I have a pretty good streak going right now, which of course could end at anytime I suppose. 

Although I did not card any 6s, there were a couple of 5s on two par threes. However, those were offset  a little by a couple of 4s on two par 5s. 

I hit some good 6i approches, and I made a few long putts for par. Of course there were some not so good ball striking on my part. Luckily, my chipping, and putting saved the day more times than not. 

Just playing one hole, one stroke at a time.

I was just hoping this topic wouldn't come up today. After a 75 yesterday, I struggled to an 89 today. I can't remember the last time I had so much trouble. The front 9 was just terrible 49, but was able to come back with a 40 for the back. We'll see what tomorrow holds.

72 last week at TPC Summerlin from the TPC tees (6400) in maybe one of the coldest conditions I've ever played in.

71 today back home, hit 15 greens. Missed four birdie putts within 5ft and got a bad break where I drove it into a bunker and it plugged in the lip (made bogey). Not bad for the range being closed and only getting to practice once this week and not much last week either.

This was my drive on 15, and it wasn't like it was a high fade, solid medium flight draw.

92, esc score of 90.  It was not a good 2nd half.   The huge numbers on two holes done me in.  Otherwise, it would have been a good round.   Three bad drives (2 OB & 1 hazard) did all the damage.

I thought last week would go well. Started on Monday with a 77, and went downhill from there, 82, 82, 82, 82, and 82 yesterday. Some were pretty easy 41-41, but yesterdays was 36-46. I'll see what happens in about an hour. On the tee at 8. Then off Monday and Tuesday, then it's back on the course Wednesday-Sunday.

Played for the first time in nearly two months and it showed.

I wasn't expecting much, but the 49 I put up on the front of Kittyhawk GC's Eagle Course, tested my patience a fair bit. I actually wasn't too unhappy with my full swings. The driver was actually pretty solid, but the putter and wedge were nearly useless. Several attempts with the wedge were either chunked or skulled and I three-putted four holes.

It's still off season here, so the scorecard found the trash at the turn.

Well, that was fun. I moved back a set of tees, 6400 yds, and ended up shooting a 79 (40-39). I think I concentrated a little harder than normal.

    • Greetings, I thought I'd circle back on this topic and let everyone know that I've decided to stick with my current coach.  My current coach has really taken me a long way. Not only that, but I think it's "easier" (is that the right word) to stick with one voice. I hit the ball brilliantly on the range the last couple weeks before getting injured, but it didn't translate to the course (actually quite the opposite). I think some of that was due to me being kind of stuck between the two worlds. While injured I've been diving into my video and my swing was never better that it was while under his instruction. So, back to it.  Since I've been injured I haven't had a chance to work on much of anything new. However, he and I are putting together my plan for the next 6 months. We will use all my data including Arccos, as well as launch data from Trackman. Going to analyze weaknesses, firm up strengths and get to the plan. It should be a fun off season.  Thanks to all who responded to this thread.  One more thing: Really looking forward to getting back to the SuperSpeed training. 
    • Give it another 3-5 years and I might feel the same. Some tech within that umbrella is ready to go out and be a commercial success, but I've done enough work with some of the latest and greatest for machine learning algorithms to know I don't want it touching anything critical safety related just yet. Computer vision is something that many people have a pretty good handle on and there's fresh data coming in often enough that 1-3 missed detections aren't going to cause any noticeable affects. Machine learning is quite a bit more difficult and most practical applications using it are currently "stuck" in that 80-90% of the way there phase that's good enough to show real promise but not good enough to release to the public. Funny enough it's a lot easier to teach an AI to play a video game than it is to teach them to do something like control a temperature. It wasn't all that far off it turns out, the real number was 0.00029 compared to my estimate of 0.00039. The reason I said 3 trips per registered car on average is because while there are a lot of cars that sit (multiple cars for one driver, or the driver isn't using it that day) there are also plenty of cars that are moving all day possibly with multiple different drivers. Figured it probably averaged out somewhere in that 3-4 trips per car range and it looks like that's correct (since 4 trips per car would give a probability of 0.00028. 4 trips per car per day would've been the best guess it seems.
    • I will accept "easier" for many but for me both more realistic & easier!  + Why make things more difficult than they need be? 
    • This is a bad calculation because many people have more than 1 vehicle. For me, I have 3, two motorcycles and a car, and I don't think I have ever taken all 3 out in the same day, let alone 3 times each. A better metric would be 3x licensed drivers.
    • Spend 30 bucks or spend 15 seconda after each round? I'll just keep doing it for myself
