What'd You Shoot Today?


Recommended Posts

90.  Not too bad for me.

The Palm Beach County courses, including the lovely Osprey Point are only $9 beginning at 4:30 PM.  It gets dark at about 6:25, so it is essentially for 9 holes. I took my 10-year old for his first outing ever.  I did not keep his score, but he made good contact.  We both had a wonderful time.

Considering that I hyper-extended my left biceps doing yard work on Monday, I am just thrilled that we got to do this at all.

CAREER BEST! Played my home course. Birdie at 1 to get the day rolling and never looked back. 3 birds on the front to one bogey to play the front -2. Had 2 birdies and 2 bogeys on back for an even bac

Ugh...my back nine was depressing. Shot a 45 on the front, which is just a shot over bogey golf there. That’s the tougher side in my opinion, so I was satisfied. Started with a double on the tenth. An up-and-down par on eleven got me back on track. But then I hit a shot OB on the short twelfth that resulted in a triple-bogey 7. An unlucky lip-out on thirteen cost me two more. Finished with three bogeys, a double and a triple, in that order. Disappointing because the 14th, 16th and 18th are all good chances for birdie. Total score: 45 on front, 51 on back for a 96, a stroke worse than the score I shot on this course a few weeks ago. But this time, no anger, just me getting ticked off. For me, those are two different situations, because I’m generally slow to anger. Thing is, I know I can score low on both nines because I’ve gone low on both nines. Not in the same round, but I’m just waiting for that to happen. First match is in a week, so that will probably be my next post in this thread, unless I play either Sat or Sun (not likely, since both days are gonna be cold) or we play 9 holes in practice (we may play some holes, but again, 9 holes is not likely).

Shot 45 on the front nine at one my local go to tracks on Friday. Had a  Downhill birdie chip on the last hole that I thought I hit perfectly....it rolled very slow all the way off the green on the other side into a water hazard!☹️ I’ll mark that side of the green as “death” next time I play that hole!

86 on Sunday morning, which makes three straight rounds in the 80s.

Got all my really awful shots out of the way on the first hole. Started with a toe hook drive that fortunately struck the trunk of a tree and bounced back onto the fairway (albeit backwards), followed by a topped 5-iron, then a shanked 55-degree wedge, and lastly a chili-dipped pitch that went about 2 yards. I finally managed to pitch on to about 5 feet and 1 putted for a double.

From that point on this was one of the better ball striking rounds I've had, with a lot of flushed mid/long irons. Ended up with 13 GIR/nGIR, and only one 3-putt. I did have 3 penalty strokes (2 from an OB drive, 1 red stake penalty area). None of the penalty strokes were the result of bad ball striking, but rather poor choice in shot selection.

After my streak of 70's over the last week or so, Thursday's round was an 82, Rained out Friday, Saturday was an 85, and I didn't even keep score on Sunday, but I know I had a lot of doubles. Then today, back to a 75. Why do I love this game?

Played Royal in Slidell, LA last Monday and this morning.  Shot 87 last week and 88 today.  Ground still pretty wet and got breezy as the morning went on.  59* when started this morning and was 70* when started.

45-ish and sunny over the weekend so I got out with my usual golf buddies.  Played a city course which was in decent shape for being off-season.  We've done indoor a few times and I've been working on a few swing changes in the simulator and I was hitting the ball very well with my irons.  Couldn't hit my driver and couldn't buy a putt, but overall it was a good day.  Shot an 82 and easily could have been in the 70's.

4 rounds this long carnival weekend. 

81-70-74-71 (+8) Really good performance. I´m hitting hybrid or irons in par 4´s off the tee to have longer irons to the greens (my course is short 6550). It really helped me to practice those mid and long irons from the fairway and rough, At my course i usually hit wedges all day long and only a couple of long irons on par 3´s. This practice it´s really paying off and i´m sure it will help me a lot when going out and competing on 7000 yards courses.

Pretty impressive round yesterday.  Started off badly with a whole bunch of bogeys and a double bogey.  The last 10 holes were 6 straight pars, two bogeys, a par and finally a birdie.  Total of 8 over.  73 on a par 65 (7 bogeys, 1 double, 9 pars and 1 birdie).

Last 4 rounds have been pretty decent. 85, 83, 80, & 79. The 79 was at my very familiar home course. The other three at various courses around the area. 

My putting has been saving me a few strokes. Those being 32, 30, 30, & 28. The round of 28 involved 5 one putts for either par, or bogey. 

Birdies are scarce, and when I do get one, I usually ruin it with a double bogey. I did card a 3 on a par 5, which was uplifting. 

No 6s on the score cards, but a few too many 5s which could've/should've been 4s.

Practice the rest of this week, and will play again next Monday, weather permitting.

Played 9 last night, shot a 38. Better than I've been playing lately, but it's where I should be playing at more often. The "No 6s challenge" really had me analyze my game and try and eliminate the bigger misses. 
Finally decided to take more club into each green and swing easy, what a game changer! Was hitting pin-high all day. That alone saved me probably 2-4 strokes. 

Two different putts cost me two strokes. I missed a 3.5 footer for birdie on #3 and blew a 10 ft putt past the hole by about 4.5 ft on #7, then missed the come backer. Almost chipped in on #8. I missed a 7 footer from the fringe on #4. 
All in all it was a great round, can't wait to try and replicate it again so this differential shows up for the handicap.

Shot 43 today on the Prairie 9 at Patty Jewett Golf Course in Colorado Springs. Just glad I had some good weather to play in while visiting. Didn’t hit driver all that well, but was money from 100 yards and in with wedges and especially good on recovery shots. 

The course was maybe a Doak 2, but with the great scenery I will give it a 3.

Shot a 78 (41-37) on Thursday on a new course I've never played before. I was pretty happy with that. Today was a 79 (42-37) on my home course with 20 mph winds. Again, I'm happy.

Shot 88 this morning. Had 11 nGIR/GIR and only 1 penalty stroke. 
 

Greens were punched, so had a few unlucky bobbles and a few lucky bobbles which evened out, but distance control was tougher than usual. 
 

After the front 9 I thought I might have a chance to match my personal best of 81, but a stretch of +10 on four holes on the back 9 put that out of reach really fast.

    • @Shorty, @boogielicious, and @iacas thank you for adding well-reasoned and factual statements to counter @Billy Z’s nonsense.   While I tend to agree to a limited extent that people can be overly sensitive these days, “Indian” and the equivalent (“red skins” and the like) are, as all of you pointed out, offensive—and not just a nitpicky level of sensitivity—but offensive to all reasonable people, given historical context and usage. Therefore, I think the ball club made the right decision. However, I’m not a fan of “guardians,” but I’m happy to see the change. 
    • This nails it. And if he read this he’d think..’yeah…another minion.’ 
    • In the video, one of them had #7 as their favorite hole 🙂 Then sadly he liked #9 Here are my course reviews... Lac La Belle - 6.0/10 Visually this course is good. The mix of fescue, bunkers, and marshy areas outline the holes nicely. There is a lot of target golf going on here. Some of the holes were a bit wonky, like hole #2. Also, the 600 yard par 5 was kind of bad. I am just glad that the fescue was not thick and tall, it was very playable from. If not, this course would be unbearable. The massive putting green with basically a putt putt course was really fun. In the end, it's a good course, but I would not enjoy playing this course a lot. Just too much target golf.  Course Layout - 5/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Lawsonia - 7.0/10 I really enjoyed this course. It has a unique style that isn’t around my area. Holes 1 thru 8 were good. For me, a bit too many blind tee shots. Holes 9-18 were more open from the tee. Luckily, there wasn’t much in the terms areas the ball would end up unplayable on the holes with blind tee shots. If you aimed over the mounds, and hit a decent shot you would have a shot at the green. There was a good variety of holes. This course was really fun to play.  Course Layout - 7/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 6/10, Clubhouse - N/A Mammoth Dunes - 8.0/10 A visually stunning course. It is much more of a friendly course than Sand Valley due to the green complexes having more areas to feed the ball into the green on errant shots. Each hole was like a problem to solve off the tee even though there was wide landing areas. I really enjoyed playing this course. The first tee shot of the day was really awesome teeing off from an elevated tee over looking over the expanse of the property. It really gives you a sense of the grand scale of the course. The bins of water on the course were nice since  you have to walk the course.  Course Layout - 8/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Sand Valley - 8.5/10 A visually stunning golf course. The green complexes are tough with a premium on hitting the flat areas or areas with backstops. Balls would routinely run off the edges where severe slopes were located at. When you miss the green, you usually had a few options to play. Mostly, the high risk through the air or try to putt it to a spot on the green for a longer putt. I think the back nine is much stronger than the front nine. Overall, I prefer the test of this course.  Course Layout - 9/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Bonus - Sandbox - 10/10 This little gem of a course is just a joy to play. Each green complex is unique and with the variety of pin placements and tee boxes changing daily, each time playing is slightly different. I thoroughly looked forward to starting every day at the Sandbox.
