What'd You Shoot Today?

38 on a par 32 course. Didn't touch a club for over a week before the round and started off slow. Finished birdie, par, par, birdie, so I was happy with that. 

Putting was rough for the first two holes as they just aerated, and its pretty dry so the greens were really bumpy. I adjusted after a few holes though and had nothing more than a two putt.

Played 9 yesterday.  Ended with a 38 on a par 36 course.  Last hole, par 5 and was on in 4, (due to the 2nd shot being a topper and only going 60 yds..),.  and made a 40 ft putt !!!!!

Probably should have done another 9 for a full 18, but, decided to quit while I was ahead !!!  LOL

This doesn't happen enough...…..  LOL

71 yesterday, still struggling with the driver, cost me some shots. Putter saved me a few times, made a couple birdie putts from 20-25ft. Put some time in today with the driver, hopefully got it worked out.

Played the back 9 holes today for a 40, (5 pars/4 bogies) with 14 putts. 

Could of played the back side twice, but another Granddaughter had a soccer game down the street. Time constraints. Momma should of had twins. 

The front 9 is closed for over seeding. It's that time of year around here, and another reason, I take a breather from golf in October. 

Shot of the 1/2 round, was a 30+/- yard pitch shot that found the bottom of the cup. Felt ptetty good about that one.

Had an interesting round today. I've thought I've been struggling lately, but today, it all came around for an even round of 72. Easy to describe - birdied the first hold, pars on the next 16 holes, and bogeyed the last hole. 14 GIR's. Played it smart today, put it in the fairway, forget the pin position, just put it in the middle of the green, and putt smart. I hope I can keep that thought process.

Late update.  Tuesday shot 84, my lowest round on my ‘home’ course.  4 pars, 1 birdie and 13 bogies.  I think this is my first round with no doubles or worse.

Driving was good all around. I am also working my 3 wood into the bag and hit some good shots both off the tee and one from the fairway that landed in the front of the green on a par 5.

Yesterday actually... I shot 41 on the front nine at Killain Greens. While i wasn't thrilled with the score, the fact it included 2 doubles, 1 bogey and 6 pars did make me feel better about things. When I played my best many years ago, I was known for making lots of pars and just a few birdies or bogeys to determine what my round turned into. I felt a bit like that yesterday morning. It felt good.

So, the big question is... Anyone want to buy my Sand wedge... cheap?

Not as good as yesterday. Shot an 80 today. Just pretty consistent golf. 40-40, with 1 birdie, 9 pars, 7 bogeys, and 1 double.

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

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.

2 1/2 hours to get around the Dales (I'm assuming) on a Saturday ain't bad. My buddy and I played there that morning and did 3 hours with one slow twosome gumming up our front nine.

So this was my latest stab at breaking 80 on our easy course and it didn't quite come off. 44-38-82. Apparently, I thought it would be funny to push all my tee shots on par 3s on the front side. Put one in the ravine on No. 5 and another on top of the hill on No. 8. Both resulted in doubles. Also didn't make a single putt on  those punched greens.

On the bright side, I managed to par the last six holes in a row. Don't think that's ever happened before.

Friday Mississippi National Highlands course - 1 over (Par71, just under 6300 yards) - 1 birdie, 2 bogies.  Ridiculously good striking stats (16 fairways and 17 GIR) the one missed green I got up and down, but I 3 putted on 2 holes for the bogies.  I kept leaving my birdie putts short but on line.  Not my best score ever, but likely the best I've hit.  The ball went where I pointed it - that's unusual.  And the Lob wedge was on fire.  It's a course I really like and know, so that helps - and it was empty.  I continue with this year's theme of not playing as much as I'd like, but when I go I'm beating holes that normally beat me up.

Luckily yesterday Sunday (Deer Run) i reset back to my normal game - not bad (79, but nothing like Friday) - nice course, a bit sterile for my taste.

I played Hills and Dales yesterday as a single. 2 hours and 5 minutes on each course. Only got held up 2 times, one on each course for about 3 holes each time. I know that I am nightmarishly fast, but I love being able to play 36 in the time that it takes most to play 18. 

Results were good too. 48-43-91 on the outside and 41-37-78 on the inside. I had a similar stretch on the back 9 of dales (1 birdie 2 bogeys and 6 pars). You'll definitely get that 70 soon if you are playing the whites. I need to see what I can do off the blues there

Another 79 today, but just a little harder to get there. 43 in the front, followed by a 36 in the back. I just couldn't get started until the 7th hole. Double bogeyed the 3rd hole, and bogeyed the other first 5. Then pars on the last 3 of the front. Followed that in the back with 2 chip in birdies, 2 bogeys, and 5 pars. I just need to keep reminding myself after a bad start, never give up. You never know what's going to happen.

    • I'm not really sure why you quoted me there and then wrote this. None of this has anything to do with anything I wrote in this thread. The next time I write the word "tragic" here will be the first.
    • And you or a loved one could get killed by someone running a red light, making sudden lane changes at a high rate of speed, texting, falling asleep at the wheel or a myriad of other distractions.  If your loved one died due to these would it not be as tragic, or is it only if alcohol is somehow involved, then it makes it worse?   +1 - Once emotions get in anything bad laws are sure to follow.   Auto crashes may be the biggest threat to children, but that wouldn’t be from drunk drivers killing them.  Lots of innocent people get killed in auto crashes every year, not all are killed by drunk drivers.  I’ll pose a question to all who said yes to the post, if all drunk driving fatalities are unavoidable if the person who is drunk didn’t drive, why are there any other traffic fatalities? Obviously if you haven’t been drinking you should never get in an accident?   I don’t agree that it will save that many lives.  I believe there are something like 6,000 traffic fatalities during sunrise and sunset, when visibility is poor.  Why don’t we ban driving during these times? You’re 61% number is incorrect.  And I posted this on another thread a couple of years ago and @iacas mentioned it already, but I’ll go ever further then he did, not only are more than 50% of all alcohol-related fatalities a single car crash, killing the driver and occupants with them, but not all alcohol-related fatalities mean that the person driving was impaired.  An alcohol-related fatality is if anyone in the car has alcohol in their system.  So a Designated Driver could be in a traffic fatality with 3 drunk passengers and this is 4 people involved in an alcohol-related fatality. Or you could have a beer and some dope runs the red light hitting you and causing a fatality, but you being a driver and having alcohol in your system are probably going to be the one who goes to jail. I’m glad you’ll accept the inconvenience, I’m not.Plus you’re not going to phase out all older cars in 15 years.   Sorry for your loss, but same question as before, would you feel any different if it was a red light runner that caused the same pain?  Not to be callous, just what is the difference. As stated before, more than 50% of the 10,000 are the drivers of the vehicles.   Et tu Brute.... + A Bunch...... + A bunch More... No, my vote would not change in the least.   Most people that cause alcohol-related fatalities are people with BAC around 0.15, almost twice the legal limit.  With as many Bars, wineries, distilleries, breweries, restaurants and how prevalent alcohol is, it’s amazing how safe it is on the roads or is it really becasue it’s not as much of a threat as the media and the government make it out to be.   I think @Pretzel said it great, emotions = bad laws.  
    • A good source to look is often on eBay. While there may not be manufacture specifics, there usually is some descriptive information. I did a brief search on two items that listed the shaft flex in terms which were most likely used back when the clubs were made. One item indicated the shafts were medium/regular and another were described as regular. Your dealing with "Vintage" items which were popular long before the internet.
    • Day 22 Got to take full swings today. First time since injuring my tailbone. It felt pretty good. it will be interesting to see how I feel in the morning.  Funny, putting a ball on a tee, or plucking it out of the hole still hurts a lot.
