What'd You Shoot Today?


Recommended Posts

Yesterday I shot an even par 72(sr tees). Front side was just average for me as I had 4 bogeys and 1 birdie for a 39. Backside I had 3 birdies and shot 33. So a jekyll and hyde round but my best score of the year. Funny how it goes.....after the front side I was thinking if I could break 80 for the day I would be satisfied. But everyone in my group was playing well so I think that rubbed off on me. Taking the day off.....don't want to follow with an 85. Ha.

Played Pinehurst #8 today.  We started on the 10th hole, so split tees.  Played the White tees at just over 6300 yards.  Started out with 3 pars then missed the green on the 1st par 3 but then I chipped and holed out for my 1st birdie. Ended up with a 1 over 37 on the back nine.  We had great rhythm going then dead stop!  A 25 minute wait on the 1st tee.  I hate it when this happens!  Kills all momentum, at least for me it does. Bogeyed 2 of the 1st three holes but settled down a bit and finished with a 39 for a round of 76.  The back I had only 11 putts with the one hole out.  Front nine just 14 putts.  Short game saved the round. Hit 9/14 fairways, and only 5 GIR’s.   Lots of par saves 11 one putts, 2 birdies overall (one was a chip).

Shot an 85 today, lowest score relative to par at +13. Played the whites with my buddy from high school, course was around 6300 yards. My driver is getting the adapter repaired so I used the 3 wood all round, and it was money for me. Kept the ball in play and only missed about 3 fairways and even they weren't laying bad. Its tough leaving the driver out of the bag when I go with my regular group as they're all single digits and play from the blues or the tips. Still can't swallow my pride and play up when they play back, even though I know I probabaly should. Golfs way more fun when you aren't taking long irons into every single green.

80 (41-39) today. Played in the heat of the afternoon. Normally play early mornings. Just couldn't get it going. 3 putted 4 or 5 greens. Difference in putting mornings versus late afternoons. Not to mention, the heat just takes everything out of you. 93 degrees, feel like 107.

Tidy enough 86 off the tips(with zero warm up hits !!) ...was happy to PAR the 4x Par-3 on the local course first time I've achieved that off the TIPS

all parts of the game were working not always great(some dumb putts but finally my first game in some time I did have confidence from putting too the driver..just need to fine tune some of the stupid stuff out and I'll break 80 again soon

Went to the same course as yesterday and shot an 88. Missed 11 par saves which obviously doesn't tell the whole story, about 4 of them were from duffed, or thinned iron shots leaving me a ways in so it wasn't a short game issue for some of them. The vast majority though were from chips, and short pitches just rolling forever. So many aspects of the game I need to work on. Went off the tee with the 3 wood again today and only a couple really got away from me, but stayed in played so I can't complain.

Shot 107, on home course.  First round with Arccos sensors, so I have stats!

- 0 GIR

- 5 nGIR

- 2.22 putts per hole

Most shots lost on poor tee shots or second shots getting me into trouble spots .  A few duffed shots too.

Looking at the strokes gained/lost analysis - only 5/18 tee shots were "average", one was better than average, and the rest were poor.  SImilarly, because the tee shots often got me into trouble, my second shots were often poor - only two average shots, the rest poor.

Oh, the wheels have come off. I feel sorry for my teammates in the games the last 2 days. Shot an 88 yesterday, with 1 birdie, but 7 double bogeys. Today was almost as bad with an 84. Tomorrow is practice, with a match play on Monday.

84 at Totteridge. It’s a Rees Jones designer course bout 45 min east of Pittsburgh. Hadn’t played in week and a half and the rust showed on the greens. 3 jacked 3 greens on my way to a 37 putt round. My only 3 one putt greens were kick in birds when I stuck wedges in tight. Happy to make 3 birds in the round but I took a triple on the 2nd and made a double at 17. Overall drove it well. Hit some good iron shots but made a few mistakes. Certainly could have been a 78 or so.

Shot 89 today. Hit driver really well, and had 13 GIR/nGIR, so ball striking was okay. Had two holes where I was +7 which cost me a chance at a better score. My miss on each +2 or worse was a big block out to the right, totaling 5 penalty strokes. Left a bunch of putts short today too, which made for some nervy par putts.

Nothing if not consistent - another 107 on the home course - this time from the forward tees - no difference in score.  Stats:

- 4 GIR

- Further 3 nGIR

- Putting 2.44

Hit four fairways, rather than three.  Putting not as good.  7/18 tee shots were average or better.  Still, that's 34 over, and yesterday was 37 and I'm currently 41.... so going in the right direction.

I played my best round/front 9 of 2020 today with a 78 (72.9/141). I was on fire in the front - scored a 35 with 4 birds and 3 pars, but once I realized I was playing well on hole 13, it got to my head and everything went downhill🙄

It’s also my first time playing with the new SIM Max Rocket 3 and oh my, it is now my favorite club besides my driver!

Trying to figure out if it's time to hang it up for a break, or to play through it. Shot a really ugly 92 today on the home course. I just can't figure out what's going on. Have to play my match play match tomorrow. I guess I'll figure out what I'm going to do after that.

Shot a 93 today. Nice round for me on a course that I struggled to break 100 on. Driver woke up and putter was on.  Still losing too many balls and approach shots needs to be closer to the pin.

90 at Park Ridge.  I missed 7/8 putts from 5-7 feet.  Most days, my mind is just not into putting unless there is something at stake. It is atrocious.  I like Park Ridge a lot because there are six par 5s and four of them are only guarded by elevation.  Just a lot of fun to go it on these holes.  Hurricane last week, then got like a 95 or something at an easy course the week before and a scramble the week before that where I could not do anything right.  My swing is going decidedly backwards atm.

Shot my best round in 20 years yesterday. 

40-43 = 83 at Carrington GC in Monroe, MI. 

Parred the first 4 holes and birdied that last 2! I had three 3-putt bogies too. Best I've been able to strike the ball in two decades. A lot of practice paying off.

    • Day 23 (5,11) - Rented a practice bay at the PGA store.  Wanted to get a better idea of ball flight than hitting into a net.  Also hit the driver for the first time since overhauling my takeaway.  Overall, I was pleased, but still have a long ways to go to where I am able to repeat this takeaway and backswing every time.
    • Business marketing 101.....For many years I was in the Procurement Dept at a local mining/manufacturing site.  As you can surmise I heard "new", "improved", "more reliable", "better than last year's",.... again and again and again.  Boogielicious is right, Marketing spends tons of bucks to make the biggest claims possible while staying in the bounds of defensible claims by Legal.  The regulatory gurus have the OEM's and related crews in such a narrow box for improving things, they have to make the consumer "think" it sounds, hits, swings, plays, flies, lands, goes in the hole better than ever....or else we would not buy it.  Fender continues to reinvent, excuse me "tweak" the Telecaster guitar, yet when you look at it  - it is pretty much the same guitar that Leo debuted in the 1950's with some slightly improved electronics, tuners, fret wire, etc.  A golf club is still a stick with a head of some sort on it and a golf ball is still a golf ball (but comes with dimples now!) and the game is still something we all enjoy to have a good discussion about.

    • No. We didn't manage to get the ball near the cart path. Ever.  Ok. Maybe a slight exaggeration there, but walking forward beats the hell out of walking sideways and between slices and shanks we walked sideways a lot. Besides all that, we had this deal where I was routinely hitting the ball 50 yards further than he was. That meant waiting for him to play his shot before I could get to mine, nearly all the time. It sucked. I hated it.
