What'd You Shoot Today?

Haven't posted scores in a while so I'll just share screenshots from my GHIN app. 

Been a struggle the last few weeks, just not scoring well, finding ways, (either bad swings, bad decisions or just feeling "off") to add a few shot here and there. Golf is funny how cyclical it can be. Some rounds feel easy and others you wonder if you're ever going to make a birdie again 😂

85.  +6 going out and +7 coming in.  Two triples really hurt.  Missed the course on #8 and #10.  Good round regardless...10 pars and several birdie chances.

86. (42/44) today, with 35 putts. 

Didn't putt well this time out. Probably because I thought I would mess around a little. I left my main gamer at home, and took my "Enterprise Putter" to the course. 

I also played my 2nd bag today which is a 4W, 12 irons, and of course the "Star Trek" putter. 

Any info on when "The Orville Putter" might be coming out?

Just a fun round of golf. Had the course pretty much to myself.

Beautiful day, mostly empty course. Greens in perfect condition, though a bit fast as there was a tournament over the weekend.  Monday is maintenance day, but members can go off after 12:00 if they don’t mind the crews working on the course.  I didn’t hit the ball well and almost quit after my fourth double on number 11. Felt like I was scoring in the mid 90s, but when I totalled up after the round it was an 82.  Maybe I should have gone biking instead, as my mind wasn’t in the right place to enjoy golf today.

Played in league last night.  First round for me in a while (other than a captain's choice)

Shot 34 (-2) with a new driver in the bag.  Had one bad swing that resulted in a bogey but other than that hit the ball really well.  Missed only one fairway and one green.  The irons were excellent and the three birdies were all within 5 feet.  Had a couple other realistic opportunities as well.

Unfortunately, the 76 I shot yesterday will have to hold me for a while. I hurt something in my left shoulder, (rotator cuff?), or pinched a nerve, or sprained or pulled a muscle. All I know is that the left shoulder has been bothering me lately, but only slightly. Tuesday, I regripped my clubs with the PURE grips I just received. I think while yanking off the old grips, I did further damage to the shoulder. But, then I forced myself to play on Wednesday, and while I could only take a 3/4 swing before the pain was too much, I still scored well. Last night, I couldn't sleep because of the pain, and today, when I got up for my Thursday golf game, I realized I couldn't even lift a club. So now, I'll try rest and a lot of Aleve, and see where it goes from there. If it doesn't get better, then I need to go find a doctor. So, you won't see any score from me for a while, but I will be checking TST daily, especially since I can't play. Maybe at 69 years old, playing 6 days a week is getting too much for this old body.

Down three after three.  Up one at the turn.  Won 10, 11, halved 12, took 13, and 14. So much for that.  A good reminder that it doesn't matter what happens at the outset.

99 (42/57). Frustrating to fall apart after playing such great golf on first 9. Really frustrating.

103 on Friday and 104 today. Did have my 1st birdie since returning to golf nine months ago so that was fun.

When out yesterday and played 88. Again the greens where not ready but overall I was happy with my ball striking. Working on my driver that launch too low but at least it was straight. Without greens the putting is not relevant so I hope they are ready soon.

Played 36 yesterday.  78/79.  Nothing really extraordinary except that 3 of us played all 36 in 4:25...  :-)

Thank you to the 3 groups, and one single who all let us play through as soon as we came to them.  :beer:

First round with a new Driver (and shaft) started really well 41 front (missed some really easy punts should have had 3 birdies ...46 on the back 9  ... some really sloppy play 

One of those days that I was feeling really confident with the new driver but some stupid lost balls that shouldn't have been hard to find but for some reason, with long rough and autumn leaves, were just making it impossible to find. 

that didn't help the composure

I went out full of confidence today. Hit some balls on the range, had my new to me irons and just thought I was gonna go out there and scorch the course! That didn’t....exactly happen. Granted I was playing a course I haven’t played since high school. But it’s pretty short and I’m generally a good driver.

  10 GiR, 7 FH. Birdied the first and birdied the last. But I had a blow up hole and made an 8. And I carded a 6 as well. Shot 84 (41/43). Which is actually pretty good for me but I also don’t generally make birdies. So I kind of feel like I let a good round get away with some inconsistent crap in the middle.

Looks like no ill effects from my sore shoulder. The pain disappeared as fast as it appeared. Played yesterday for the first time in a little over a week. Shot a 72 (36-38) 2 birdies, 4 bogeys, 12 pars.

    • An 88 today. Horrible putting. Missed 6 straight par putts from inside 7 feet. I can’t even say well I made a long one that maybe I shouldn’t have. Just plain bad putting. To top it off triple on 18. Ugh. 
    • She deserved at least a sniff of your beer for requiring you to play from the tips and commandeering the cart!  Sounds like a good kid.
    • Had a nice time today golfing with my Granddaughter. We played 9 holes on "her home course" .  She was a bit down in the dumps because she didn't qualify for Monday's varsity tournament. We talked about her best golf days were still a head of her. Freshman envy I guess.  On the first tee she asked "so what are we playing for?" I told her a pitcher of beer, figuring I would destroy her mental prowess right off the bat. "You're on" was her reply. Now my mental game was taking a double take. I've been out of highschool for quite a while, but I'm pretty sure 13 year old, highschool fresh are not into beer yet. She told me she needed a stroke a hole, and that she would be playing from the women's tee, and that I would be playing from the tips.  Now I am really thinking. This time last month this young lady didn't know very much about golf. Yeah, a few long swing lessons with the course pro, and some short game stuff from me, some months ago. Trying to keep my competitive face on, I was.  Oh yeah, that she would be driving the cart......huh? Long story short she netted a 44, while grossing a 53. I think I was conned out of my own hdcp, but still won with a 41.  I was pleasently surprised at her game. I don't what youngsters her age shoot for good scores. I thought something in the 60s would have been decent. I asked her how she missed qualifying for Monday's tournament? She said she scored 51, and needed a 48.  As we were heading off the course, she told me I was going to have to wait on that pitcher of beer. For about 7.5 years. A little personal relief on my part. However, she was up for an ice cream, and soda. My treat.  What can I say. She now owns me.       
    • 86 (+15) on a 5000 yard course. My best here is 84. I really need to learn to control my emotions when I face slow players ahead of me. Today it came on hole 13. Waited for another single (walking as was I) to get out of range. Talked to him at the next tee box to see if he had called the rangers about a 4ball that wasnt letting singles play through. He had another single in front of them. Neither of them wanted to join up which didn't make sense. Had the first 12 holes done in 65 minutes, then it took 80-90 minutes fot the last 6 holes. I know that is normal pace, but it is more than twice as slow as I had been going. I'm glad I kept my head in the game enough to finish the round without killing my score
    • I have the Smart Sole S AND a Callaway 58 C-grind 8 bounce. Yes I know they're both 58. And yes I use both of them. The SS S for deep rough and soft sand, and the Callaway for hard pan, tight lies, and firm sand. All of which exist on the same course. I don't carry a FW so I have room in my bag.
