What'd You Shoot Today?

Played Stonebrooke golf course in Shakopee, MN..     71.5/137 - 6,475 yds.   

Shot an 80, which is very good for me, but even better considering the 4 double bogeys I had.   had a 39 on the back - 2 doubles and a birdie.   

I did quite a bit of work in the off season.   Specifically, playing in a simulator league.   So I was swinging for an hour and a half once a week, every week, with the simulator telling me path and face.  
The work definitely shows.  both longer and more accurate with my driver, and my irons are more consistent in approach.   One of the doubles I had, was because I tried to clear 160yds of water with my hybrid out of the rough.   bad decision.  Another was because I had a ball just disappear in the rough.  I know it was there, but I couldn't find it.   

All-in-all a really good round, and felt repeatable.   just a few dumb mistakes to clean up.

Interesting. A simulator league.  I have to try that in the winter.

Had the opportunity to play Dubsdread Golf Course in Orlando today. The greens were like billiard table fast. I just couldn't get the speed down, not to mention just trying to keep the ball on the greens on the approach shots. Ended up shooting an 88. 2 birdies, 5 pars, 4 bogeys, 5 double bogeys, and 2 triple bogeys. I think I 3 putted at least 5 of those greens. But, I did like the course, and had a fun time.

93.  53 front, 40 back.  Highlights included two lost balls in the first seven holes and also getting up and down from 70 yards out to save par on the #2 handicap hole.

100 on the home course today. Chipped in for par on a par 5 so that was fun. Poor putting and lots of double bogeys but no blow up holes. I think golf must be like being a junkie - you just know that next high (or round) is going to be the best ever...

I played three, 9 hole rounds this past week.This abbreviated play week was due to inconsistent weather, and personal stuff going on. 

I averaged 4.53 strokes per hole. My putting average for the week was 30. 2 per round. These numbers are in the normal range for my game, although I think I could have putted a little better. I missed a few that I thought were easy ones. Then again, I also made few tougher ones. It all equals out I suppose. 

Shot of the week was a missed, 165 yard, almost hole in one. Missed it by a couple of inches. The tap in bird putt was a good thing though. 

Better weather is moving into the area. Hopefully our warm to hot summer is going to start developing. I like playing in the higher temps. Overall, I score better in warmer weather.

I broke 80 for the first time in a long time!!! Shot 36/42....actually even on the front! I was walking and it was pretty warm today and I’m terribly out of shape. I hit a lot of good shots though and only had one double! Super proud of today’s round!

Back to my home course yesterday. Shot an even 80 (40-40). No birdies, 12 pars, 4 bogeys, and 2 double bogeys. I was stupid and went for a par 5 in 2, and pushed my second shot OB. I'll have to rethink my approach on that hole.

I shot 78 with an extremely errant Driver. I spent most of the day in the wet rough. It was a club tournament and now my Hdcp dropped to 6.9

Shot 100 again today. 2 birdies and one par - fun. Several triples - not fun. It's a good thing, though, 'cause I was worried I'd get so good there'd be no room for improvement...:-)

Shot 80 (front 40, back 40) at Highland National in St Paul this weekend. 4 birdies and would have broke 80 easily if not for a triple bogey on a par 3! :-(

Tuesday: Actually my first round of the year. Something in the triple digits. I didn't bother to add it up. 35 putts which was the bright statistic of the round: 2 one putts and only three 3 putts. The rest 2 putts - I'm satisfied because they were 10 to 21 footers with resulting 6 to 18" tap ins. Need to work on bunker shots. I would have been better off taking the 2 stroke penalty and dropping behind the bunker on those four holes.

    • Particularly when that slow group is a couple of serious A-holes.
    • Not really a good option when the teesheet is packed.  They would have to let every group behind them play through. That's why I ask how many of y'all have marshaled a tough course on a busy day . . . . you will hear every excuse in the book.  One of my favorites was a cigar-smoking, smart-talking older guy who had 3 young bucks in his group.  They had held up a 2-some all day, and at the third visit from me, on the 12th tee, he read me the riot-act with some choice, colorful words, saying it was the course's fault for allowing 2-somes to play.  He said he paid twice what they paid, so he was playing the way he wanted. I went back and talked to the 2-some, a husband and wife, and told them they would have to go around that foursome. Not long later I saw them at their car.  They were not upset, but they quit and came in because they did not want to upset the 4-some. See, that's when  I'd like to be able to pull out my tablet and see if they wanted to re-play at a discount. BTW, some 2-somes, often couples, won't book unless we block the other two slots at their tee time.     Wow!  Never heard of that, no-hole-skipping rule. & funny how some slow groups speed up when you play through.
    • Not sure about the other two, but I'm not technically allowed to do that. Mind you, nobody would have caught me if I did. One of the many rules we sign off on with a City of Dayton, OH privilege pass includes not skipping holes. For better or worse, I tend to be rule follower. I suppose given the layout of the course and my being on foot, it would have been a bit awkward anyway. We make the move, they speed up and we hit the next tee at the same time.
    • My instructor tells me that the more golf I play, the more I need to take lessons, not just to get better, but to make sure I don’t develop any bad habits unknowingly. I play 4-5 rounds a week and see my instructor every other week for swing checks. I have bad days on the course and will get frustrated - I usually stop golfing and see my pro right away instead of trying to figure it out myself.  Do you have anyone you are working with? I find it beneficial to have lessons regularly. I see it like a car tuneup - car is running fine but you still get an oil change/service regularly just to make sure things are doing well. Same thing with golf.
    • It was 75° the day before yesterday, and it's 10° now. Why didn't you guys skip a hole and go around the ball-shaggers?
