Just a lot of not remembering the course and lots of water.

It's a Florida golf course... of course there's lots of water.  In Florida if you dig a 6" deep hole you've got yourself a small pond.

The other day I shot a miserable 51-46. Didn’t putt great, with 37 total putts. It could've been worse, because I made four of five six-footers throughout the round. I hit one OB on the first and made an eight, and hit two OB on the fourth and made a 10. I three-putted from six feet for bogey on the ninth, and made back-to-back sevens on the 15th and 16th. Triple-double. I also had someone hit into me on the 13th hole. Not fun.

My grandpa and brother came out with me for the front nine, and they both shot 54, not far behind me. Hopefully I can get out on the course this weekend, but the weather is not ideal. It’s raining as I type this.

Shot a 79 on the home course today.

Started on 10 with a birdie and then went par, bogey, birdie, par, bogey, par, bogey, par, ending that 9 with a 1 over 37.

Then we moved to the first hole. Double bogey, par, bogey, bogey, bogey, bogey, par, par, par, ending with a 42.

Just couldn't put it together on the last 9, but I think part of the problem was we caught up to the crowd, so it was hit the ball and wait, and wait, and wait, then hit the ball and wait. Lost my whole rhythm and timing at that point. If we start the round, and I know it's going to be a slow day, I can adjust to that, but when you're clipping along, not waiting on anybody, and all of a sudden everything comes to a screeching halt, it throws everything out of whack.

Didn't do much correct today.  Driver started moving left to right which hasn't happened in a while.  Only pluses, when I kept driver in play, I was crushing it 275+.  Also, only had 5 penalty strokes.   Playing tomorrow.

Got to play for the second time this year the local "college" course and had a good day for me.  My score was a 101, a personal best at this course, only one penalty - lost the ball into the ravine on #8 par three off the tee.  Hitting three of the tee and still making 6 was a personal win.  On a day where I felt I wasn't hitting drives as far, I found that I was in the fairway 8 out of 14.  Maybe a lesson learned there?  Also worked on not killing the ball but rather what worked on approaches - lay up for a wedge/short iron or try to swing away and likely miss.  Choosing the former resulted in 9 nGIRs and 1 GIR, sadly all were bogies.  However the best part of the day only two double bogie holes and the lone triple on #8.  It was a day where I was consistently pitching/chipping on the green to putt for par, an unusual state of game for me.  A number of near miss putts that lipped and just slid by, resulting in 3 putting on 7 holes.  Overall the consistent play, i.e. setting me up for better looks at the green on approach shots, resulted in my having a great day even if the score was still a three-digit number.

A solid 78 today. A pair of 39's. Nice consistent golf. 3 bogeys on each side, 6 pars on each side.

As my playing partners said, "Boring golf".

Shot 41 on a Par 32 9 holer while on a weekend vacation. Two pars and a birdie were the highlight. Course was actually pretty tough... more than a few of the holes it was fairways or bust. I went bust a time or two.

Today's round I decided to take @iacas's  advice and swing at roughly 70% and feel like I was more in control.  I also decided because I'd be swinging at presumably a slower swing speed that I'd take an extra club and I found success with that strategy.

CR/SR 71.5/126, 6298 yards

Score: 103

GIR: 5/18; 28%

FIR: 7/14; 50%

Penalty Strokes: 8

Birdie: 0

Pars: 3

Bogeys: 8

DB: 2

TB: 2

Quad Bogey+: 3

Penalty Strokes: 6

Played 27 today: +3, +1, +3. Terrible ballstriking overall ESPECIALLY with my long irons, but no three putts and holed a TON of 5-9 footers for par. I've practiced quite a bit on my putting the past few days, so I'm super happy to see immediate results on my first time back out.

79 today for a differential of 5.8. Ball striking with the irons was better but my wedges and putting were awful. Couldn't control the distance or direction at all with how bad I was striking it for some reason.

SG (compared to scratch)

Driving: 2.49

Approach (>100 yds): 0.19

Short game (<100 yds): -2.66

Putting: -2.40

I also track the "Tiger Five," which is a better way of quantifying all the silly mistakes I make during my rounds. These were:

Bogeys on par 5s: 0

Double bogeys: 0

Three putts: 4

Bogeys with 9-iron or less: 2

Blown easy saves (which I quantify as any nGIR that isn't in a bunker/deep rough or terribly short sided): 3

Shot 92 at a course I’ve never played before.

Was cruising along on the front 9, hitting the ball crisply for the most part, and putting and short game were solid.

I got to #9 at +3 for the round. It’s a pretty simple par-5, about 520 yards, so I’m thinking par isn’t unreasonable based on my play during the previous 8 holes, and maybe I’ll make the turn under 40. Pond on the left side at about 280-290 yards and O.B. down the entire right side of the hole. Aimed at the right edge of the pond but hit a push toward the right hand rough. Looked like it was going to land safely, but it hit the cart path and bounced over the boundary fence. Spiraled to a quadruple bogey with a bad second shot after a drop and +2 penalty, and then my approach airmailed the green by 20 yards, pitched back over the green, chipped on, and 2 putts for a 9. Never really recovered psychologically for the rest of the round and faded physically down the stretch.

Made a bad quadruple bogey later to top off a lackluster back 9 and finished 43 / 49.

101, 49/52. Long track, 6100 yds par 71. Wet so no roll.  My long game is weak but what concerns me more is my approach and wedge game let me down today.

Yesterday was a fundraiser tournament for our golf team. We worked before and after the tournament, from about 9:00 in the morning to about 7:00 at night, tournament started at 1:30. Format was a 4-man scramble, everyone got a red tee and a mulligan. I played with some guys from the team (two of them are low cappers) and we shot a 59 (-13) with eleven birdies and an eagle. We could’ve shot lower too, because one guy almost drove the green on the short sixth hole, but we couldn’t get up and down. On the eighth hole, we couldn’t make a seven footer for birdie with five tries (feeling great over the putt, I used my mulligan there and lipped out the second time).

On the 16th hole, our third of the day because it was a shotgun start, I pulled out the big stick and said that since I had other guys to lean on, I’d play a bit more aggressive. So I swung out of my shoes on this particular hole and, with two pretty girls watching, nailed my drive over 260 yards down the middle, quite a bit beyond my average drive. It wasn’t the best shot out of the group, but it felt great.

I also hit a gutsy shot to a tight pin on the 7th hole (our 12th). It was playing about 130 yards to a front pin behind a bunker, and I hit a PW onto the front of the green, about eight feet out. It was a fun day of golf.

Played Memorial Park in 20-30 mph winds today and shot 81 for a 9.2 differential, which I'm pretty dang happy with to be honest. Didn't putt great and got a bit exposed by the tricky green complexes, but with the breeze as strong as it was it was just tough. Highlight of the day was definitely hitting 3w into the center of the green on 16, water surrounding on three sides with a 30 mph wind blowing straight into us, then two-putting from 60 feet downhill, downwind for par.

SG (compared to scratch):

Driving: 0.28

Approach (>100 yds): -2.35

Short game (<100 yds): -1.93

Putting: -2.14

Sunday, I shot a 76 (39-37) with 1 double bogey, 5 bogeys, 9 pars, and 3 birdies. Somewhat of a strange round. I was pushing everything straight right. Hit the trees about 160 yards out on the right off the first tee. Had 185 left to the pin, and dropped it about 8 feet away. Made the putt for the first birdie. Second hole, hit the trees on the right about 50 yards in front of the tee. About 300 yards to the green, hit my 3 wood down the center of the fairway, leaving about 100 yards to the pin. Dropped the 3rd shot 4 feet from the pin, and made the putt for par. Anyway, the whole day was like that.

Monday was match play against our top player, a +2 to my 4 handicap. He shot a 74, I was able to scramble well for a 76 (37-39). 5 bogeys, 12 pars, and 1 birdie.

    • Hmm, lots of theories that aren't that different than what he is stating. Martin Ayers called his "bow and crossbow". Martin also loved long hard to stay focused on youtube videos. (I admit to skipping around on this one) He is wrong when he says it is on plane here That clubface is WIDE open and unless he compensates, a slice, push, mostly bad things will happen. His lead wrist is in cupped. Yuck! The golf swing has so many things going on. Much of what he is saying is good stuff, however, I think other instructors do a better job simplifying it. Shorter videos that taken as a whole are better for consumption.
    • FFS. No sign of the same here in England.
    • I can do 4 days max. I am assuming it won't affect anyone else's plans.  
    • Personally I'm leaning towards these options, but am open to what everyone else wants.  We probably want to try this during the week if were booking SV tee times 30 days out. I am thinking we start golfing maybe on Monday the 19th or Tuesday the 20th.  Again, I am very open to discussion on all of this. 1. Mammoth or SV and the Sand Box $290 2. Mammoth or SV and the Sand Box $290 3. Mammoth or SV and the Sand Box $290  4. Sentry World ($155) or Mammoth or SV and the Sand Box ($290) 5. Lawsonia ($120) or Erin Hills($320) - If you would be doing this on the way out it would be recommended to maybe fly out of Milwaukee. So, costs: The 4 days of golf with Sentry world would be roughly $1025 for the golf. All 4 days all at SV would be $1160 5 days with Lawsonia $1145. 5 days with Erin hills or Whistling to something else you would want to do...have fun and good on you for having limitless income. A word of advice for Whistling and Erin, Whistling requires a caddy i believe, so your probably looking at ($750) and Erin has so many blind shots that you likely need one.   If someone wants to just golf the first three days, that is an option too.  @Slim_Pivot I apologize I was a bit low maybe on my initial calculations.  I was originally thinking of 3-4 days instead of 4-5 days. I am all for as much golf as possible though.      
    • Sorry for the silly-long delay in replying! The course closed in October 2016. I've never been back to the park. Our club (Braeside GC) survived after moving to Selsdon Golf Course and we're doing pretty well, except for the women's section which has dwindled badly. The other club (Beckenham GC) disappeared after moving/merging to somewhere else that wouldn't allow to retain their identity (I think they only had around 10 active members).
