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.

    • Well, apparently they weren’t printing my tickets...  
    • I tend to like it. In most cases, companies changed simply to match what was already happening.  People would, and always have, taken “sick” time for your aforementioned fun things, and still come to work while sick. Trying to verify and manage sick time, especially the one or two days when someone is (or claims to be) sick enough to want to stay home, but not so sick as to warrant the visit to a Dr, is a nightmare.   Now the employee can use their PTO however they want, and the company benefits from an easier to manage system.   Just for fun....the day most often called out for being “sick” is the Monday following the Super Bowl.  Imagine that.      Yup
    • I disagree, and both companies I have been at so far have had the 1 large PTO bucket, and I can't say I've really ever seen someone in the office who was so visibly sick that they shouldn't have been there.  Plus, for people who rarely get sick, the separate sick and vacation buckets would just mean they would either end up accumulating weeks upon months of sick time, or lie about being sick so they could actually use those days, especially if their employer has a "use it or lose it" policy where you can't roll unused days over to the following year. You just said you hated that policy of 1 PTO bucket, but then you said given the choice between those two policies you would choose the 1 PTO bucket. That doesn't make sense. Clearly the 1 PTO bucket must not be that bad of an idea if you would choose it over having separate vacation/sick buckets, right? I have the 1 PTO bucket and I think it is perfectly fine. When I plan out my vacations and other PTO days throughout the year, I make sure I leave a couple days unused in case I get sick, and then if December comes and I haven't used those days yet, I take random Fridays or Mondays off in December since we can't roll any unused days over.
    • so did I - was the classic gym rat with the weights before taking up golf.  Lots of power not too much precision in the beginning.   Over time I've changed workout routines to still get in strength work with weights  but I've incorporated  lots of body weight work, cardio, and flexibility work.   As a result (and I'm sure golf equipment advances help)  I'm tons more accurate.  had my best drive over the weekend that measured 320 in the heat and firm conditions.   I usually carry about 280.   In all I've been working out since I was 26, I'm 56 now. So I think weights should be a part of an overall fitness plan
    • I work for the government, and our sick leave policies are more liberal than most, I would imagine. We can use sick leave for any doctor/dentist appointment. We can also use it for any illness or anything like that. This includes a kid's appointment or illness. We don't have a bright line policy on medical documentation for using sick leave, except for extended leave for childbirth or something similar. I think it's in our supervisor's discretion to request some sort of documentation, but I've never personally had that happen. I can't imagine that happening for taking sick leave of less than 3 days, though. I hate this policy. I think it's shortsighted from management. People don't want to use their days off for being sick; they want to use it for fun things. I think it leads to sick people working more often, getting other people sick, and thus making the office less productive. If the choice is between 3 weeks vacation + 1 week sick time, or just 4 weeks PTO, I would obviously take the 4 weeks. But I would also be coming into work sick more often.
