What'd You Shoot Today?

78 on Chaska Town course.  Good back nine and good first 3 holes.  Finally took care of the 2nd and the 17th with regulation pars (both long par 4s that give me trouble on the 2nd shot).  Regulation par on the 18th in the dark - hit, and then walk up to where the ball 'should' be,,,,and it was there on all 3 shots....  Par on 9 after a crappy drive and mediocre 2nd -  which I usually duff the 3rd, this time a good approach.  Great finish.  Good driving all day.  Better GIR than last time.

no birdies, looks like the season is ending without a real bang, but some solid play.

93 and 88.  All in all a good weekend for me including a birdie in each round. I am pretty sure my index is about to drop some, and I am excited to see how much I can improve now that I have made it over a hurdle (driver is behaving) and I have a clear path to follow with my practices (partial shots with short irons and wedges).  I credit the advice from all of you at this site for the bulk of my education.

93 53-40 

It’s a pretty easy course that is long but quite forgiving. 6600 yards. But the greens were brutal. I had 41 putts and we all had a bad putting day. Really fast, huge breaks, just something we are not used to. 
 

On the back 9 I had 4 pars, 3 bogeys a double and a birdie. 3 single putts but still 2 triple putts!!

84, with back to back 42s, and 34 putts. Had birdies, pars, bogies, and a double bogey. 

Best shot of the day was a 10'+/- putt for that double bogey. 

Cold, north, gusty wind in the western part of the Vegas Valley  put a damper on my game. Had to wear warm clothing. 

Had a ton of fun anyways.

Yesterday was an 80 (37-43) and today was an 80 (41-39). Nothing special about either rounds. 1 birdie yesterday, and 1 birdie today.

Had the front 9 of my life today.  Started birdie, par, par, double bogey, par.  Through 8 I was +4 (including two penalty strokes) and then hit a bad tee shot on the 9th hole (hole 27), had to chip out, didn't concentrate enough and had to try and crazy draw shot which didn't draw and went into the woods and, after it was all said and done, carded a 9 on the hole and 46 on the front 9.

Back 9 started with a birdie but got very wild and with 4 penalty shots on the back and shot a 49.  Really disappointed because I really felt good at the start of the round and then my tee shots just started coming undone and wasn't able to correct it until the end of the round.  But two rounds in a row I've gotten two birdies and all time high in GIRs :).  Anyway, here's the round:

CR/SR: 72.5/123

Score: 95 (Started on hole 19)

GIR: 6/18 (33%)

Birdies: 2

Pars: 3

Bogeys: 5

DB: 7

Quintuple Bogey: 1

Well, today I shot 95 again but my ball striking was really off.  1 had 1 GIR and 4 penalty strokes.  However, I didn't really have any blow-up holes.   Three weeks ago I would have been happy as a pig in sh*t at shooting 95, today I was disappointed. :-$

Score: 95

CR/Slope 70.3/123

GIR: 1 (6%)

Pars: 2

Bogeys: 11

DB: 3

TB: 2

I've been away a couple of days, so it wasn't today, it was Thursday. The weather had been gorgeous and the yard work,  garden work, and housework was all done, and I was itching to get out. So, I called my buddy and left a voice mail. He called me back and said he was meeting his Son and BIL at a local course, tee time 1PM. Come on out. 

I won't try to tell you that this is a hard course, but it has some challenging holes. What we like about it is its conditioning. It's about as close to a country club as we can find around here, and seniors can play for 15 bucks a round, w/cart on Mondays! When I got my first look at the course driving in I thought, "Ooh! The course looks really nice!" And it was. The fairways were tight and rolling, the rough was penal, and the greens were putting fast and true, with a lot of break.

I shot 37-40=77, my second time breaking 80 this season. And I've been threatening 80 quite a few times.

Shot a very solid 75 in less than ideal conditions (mid 40 degrees with a constant 20+ mph wind on a relatively tree-less, links style course)

Holed out from ~40 yards for a birdie, and hit a tee shot to the back fringe on a short par 4 for another birdie.

Putted really well, gained 1.2 strokes compared to scratch, and hit it pretty solid off the tee as well, gaining .60 strokes compared to scratch.

Great round yesterday. An even par 72. Started with a birdie on the first hole, followed by 3 pars, another birdie on the 5th hole, pars on 6 and 7, then bogeys on 8 and 9 for an even 36 for the front. I really wanted that 34. The back was 5 straight pars, then disaster as I chunked my driver into the weeds just ahead of the tee. Double bogey, but came back with a birdie on 16 and 17, and par on 18 for the 72.

Tee time today in about an hour. We'll see if I can repeat.

Got 18 in on the longer course on my local muni. 45+45 90. Two 7s, three 6s and the rest were better than that so I avoided my typical snowmen on this course. CR 67.9 SR 122 from the members (5900 yards). This was my 10th round that I have counted for handicap so it jumped from my best (16.0) to average of best 5 (19.7). Really happy with everything today except for putting, but the greens were rolling really quick. Watched a guy in the group in front of me miss an uphill putt 4 times, and have it roll back to his feet every time. Some of them were long of the hole as well. The last one he put right in the hole (10 ft or so). Found myself in the same spot when I got to the green and put my first one in knowing what was at stake.

    • I tend to follow my surroundings and flow with the course (if I have played it before) and don't bother with how long I take to setup. If nothing is rushed, then I am not rushed. I don't sit in the car too long or take a large amount of time getting my gear ready. I judge accordingly, but I really don't like to be rushed. I pay my hard earned money to play just like the next person does. It doesn't take long to setup my equipment and put my shoes on. I am always reasonably well prepared before I even get to the course so if need be, I can be quick on the go. I believe it is all about respect to people and fellow golfers in general. Of course there are those that carry great disrespect for others and could give a rip about anything which usually bring challenges to what may be a good golf game.  Some weeks ago, me and a buddy played a course and there was a foursome that were in front of us at the first Tee that actually warmed up and stretched on the Tee box delaying those behind them! There were no less than two groups waiting behind us. After quite a wait and seeing this was not going to change, we decided to start on the 10 hole and while we drove the cart over to 10 (we could see #1 tee box from 10) and got set up on the tenth hole we could see they still had not finished. What is really bad is we tee'd up and drove our balls and two of them were still not finished!
    • It’s not an ego issue at all. This site is very dedicated to providing accurate information by backing it with reliable resources and data. Not accusing you but more often these types of comments come from those who have difficulties in learning something new or realizing their information is not up to date.  Aside from medical issues I’m seldom right here ( I’m a physician) nor do many people agree with my opinions. I’ll sometimes stubbornly debate when there are no facts but once data, facts are presented I enjoy it as learning something new.
    • One thing I will add is if your swing speed is 80-82 with a 6 iron, I doubt u hit it 196. Hit outside and check some more places for launch etc... but don’t do anything to the clubs yet.
    • I’m a believer in the arms being responsible for a lot of swing speed, but yes. It feels a lot less ‘movement’ was able to generate good power. However I began to think that my actual SS wasn’t really improving. It was the quality of strike. My conventional swing can be all over the face with an in to out and out to in path ( more likely out to in). With this swing I was almost always in to out and near the middle of the club face. So I think I was just hitting better shots. Again, JV would never provide any data from himself nor any students showing increases in SS.  I don’t have a problem with having a 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 swing. It’s the ‘10’ different that seemed ridiculous to me. I’ll never use a 4i to hit the ball 20yds.
    • I think that when you're talking about an issue that concerns golf course maintenance, using methods recommended by the Golf Course Superintendents Association is a pretty reliable thing to do.  Its not ego, its a matter of deferring to the people who know most about maintenance of greens.  I agree to a small extent, the bent tools can be used in the incorrect way, by people who have never been taught the right way.  That's the reason for the initial post, to show people the right way to repair ball marks.
