Had my first ever eagle today. Par 71 only 5k yard course, but it was cold. Going into the last 4 I was 6 over so I was thinking 2 pars 2 bogeys for under 80. Lost my ball off the 15th tee and had my only double for the day. Pared the next. 17 is a 240 yard par 4. I normally drive the ball 230ish in the summer, but hit one on to the front fringe. 2.5 ft off the green and about 20 ft away from the cup. Drained it. Riding the high, I ended up with a birdie on 18 for a 40+36 76. +5 on the front and even on the back. Great way to end the season potentially.

Nice! I had the same thing happen today. My brother and I played, and he played the reds. 17 is about 240 from the reds. I thought what the heck, I’ll try and drive it. That’s exactly what I did, put it on the back of the green, about 25 feet front the pin. My brother had a similar-looking ball sitting two feet from the pin, and for a second, I thought it was mine!

I actually wasn’t planning on playing today, but the chance of rain went from 80% all the way to 20%, so we made a tee time for about mid-morning. I shot a 48 on the front, which is a bit inflated because I had a 10 on the fourth after taking three shots to get out of a bunker then three-putting. Four pars (on 3, 6, 7 and 9), two of those up-and-down. Back started with a bogey on the par-5 tenth, a bit disappointing since I was only 50 yards out after the second shot. Then after hitting one OB on the next I had an 8, then played +6 the next four holes. Bogeyed 17 and 18 for a 51 on the back and a total 99. Despite the high score, I actually hit the ball well. Some days are just like that: you hit it well but can’t score worth a crap.

Shot 92. Haven’t played 18 holes in about 6 weeks due to work, weather, and family stuff. Wasn’t expecting much from today. Played a course I have historically played well, and was pretty consistent all day this time around. No real blow up holes, but not enough pars to make up for my doubles. Played from 6500 yards.

Shot a 81 yesterday. 10 pars, 7 bogeys, and a double. Started the round with the temp at 62 degrees with a 20 mph wind from the north. Ended the round with the temp at 54 degrees. Felt like it was freezing. 50 degrees right now, and more of the same weather today, so I just cancelled our 8 AM tee time.

90 today.  45/45.  Driver was great.  Approach shots were kinda meh (7 GIR).  Missed an 18 inch putt, but made three from over 8 feet. Par 3s killed me.  But the course we were on has four par 3s.  The distances are like 175, 195, 209, 170.  That's long for me.  Only lost one ball.  Brilliant weather.  Did not sweat a drop.

104 today on a par 71 local course. I am not really improving on the par 71 and 72 courses primarily because I don’t play long par 4 and par 5 holes very often. Gotta work on those this winter.

91 today, very wet. Hit the ball well but direction was a struggle for me today. First round since a lesson the other day, frustrated again.

Shot 88 which is a good round for me, but felt it could have been a bit better. Didn't score worse than a 6 on any hole, but also didn't make any birdies or 1-putt pars.

This was one of my better ball striking rounds, and I even had a couple out-of-nowhere, super flush, WTF,  ball striking moments like hitting my 5-wood 245 yards uphill, almost all carry (normal is around 220), or flying my 7-iron 195 yards over a green (normal is around 160-165). My swing just felt comfortable and in control today, not sure how to explain this. I guess practicing every day helps. I still had some costly penalty strokes from wayward shots, which I need to work on eliminating.

I had 12 GIR/nGIR, so I gave myself good chances. 

Duffed a couple short game shots, but luckily they were both from close enough to the green to still reach and roll out enough to leave a reasonable length putt.

Finished with 36 putts, which is more than normal. My typical round is around 32 putts. I'm not a great putter by any means, but this was the first time where I really felt that my putting cost me some strokes.

After the layoff yesterday because of the cold, came back today and shot a 78. Pair of 39's. 6 pars and 3 bogeys per side. Never got in serious trouble, but didn't have any easy birdie putts either.

My wife had some family business in Parker, Az today. While there, I played the Emerald Canyon course. 

Carded an 84. (39/45) Missed a few putts, that I think I should have made. Had 35 putts.  Last time I played here, I putted poorly as I recall. 

Nice course for where it's at. Canyon/target golf.with a premium on ball placement off the tee to set up a good second shot. Uneven lies can be a common occurrence.

Since I was late going to the course, I told the guys to go without me and I caught them on the 4th hole. I played the remaining 14 holes 6 over par, so I shot 61...  ;-)

Your simple analysis statement is something I also try to do after a round. Sometimes, after a bad round, I can't remember things well enough to figure out what I did wrong that created a domino effect of bad scoring. Then I keep simple records on my next few scorecards, fairways hit, greens hit, up/downs, sand saves and putts. It leads to the kind of thought you just expressed and I highly recommend it as something that might help a lot of people.

    • isnt the idea that the club runs from the bottom of the index finger on an angle so that it's on the top of the palm by the pinky.  (sorry if that made no sense as im not sure of the correct terms).  it looks as though in that first picture that maybe youre gripping it completely in the fingers.
    • I was fortunate to grow up at the club with "no tee times" and it worked basically like @vonbonds described at his place. Where I was in San Diego and now in Vegas, you have to make tee times. I get the frustration of having to make times but the private club has changed in the last decade or so with more ClubCorp/TPC/Troon clubs and fewer equity options. The higher end (less members) should strive and maintain a "no tee time" policy but for most private clubs it's going to be tough because they have to accommodate more than 30 rounds a day. Not really sure the point of Rymer's tweet.
    • As a resident of Southern California, I am required to have an acting resume.  Paramount on it is when I sink a putt outside of 10', I act like I'm not surprised.  Not very convincingly though, but I've had very few chances to practice it. But... 8 strokes gained putting.  Granted, it's over 54 holes.  For contrast, my most recent round, I had 8.5 strokes lost putting (in my defense, I suck at putting and didn't warm up, and my practice leading into the round was primarily long game -- I still shot close to my handicap, in part thanks to only 0.51 strokes lost approach).  Even more amazing, my round before that was 0.23 strokes gained putting, so you never know with me (and those are small sample sizes). Still, super amazing of Marc Leishman. 
    • Day 19, January 27 2020.  Putting drill at home after work.  Aluminium ruler, real balls, over carpet.  Only missed two (one left one right).  Focused on setup, including hand position. 
    • There have been other holes pointed out. The first four that spring to mind: You've not defined "approach" You're not treating like situations alike. That's at the core of "equity." You're punishing a player because of the actions of the wind? Another careless player? You're not "playing the course as you found it" and accepting good and bad breaks that occur as a result. It's not an opinion. The spirit of the game is defined, and it means: act with integrity (including following the Rules) show consideration for others take care of the course That's it. That's the "spirit of the game." There's no "spirit of the rules." When people say things like that, it's usually - as is the case with you - what people "feel" like things should be. That's not how the Rules work. If the rock is large enough that a smaller player cannot move it, should every player in the field be precluded from moving it? No. That's a ridiculous position to take, if you understand the Rules. No, it's not. Go ahead and tell me which of the three bullet points it violates. The answer? None. You'd have a better case if you just pointed out that would be against the ACTUAL rules of golf. No, it doesn't. Your alternative is lousy. The OP's question has been answered. So, move on. This is not the place for you to learn about the Rules of Golf, the concept of equity, or otherwise for a huge discussion on "rules theory" or anything else. Someone had a rules question, it's been answered, and anything additional is both off-topic and muddies the waters.
