How many three-putts (or more) did you have today?

Recommended Posts

So, as a cousin thread to the "What did you shoot today?" and the "Shot of the Week" threads, I thought it may be nice to have a place where we can all vent about our three/four/even five-putts of our recent round....after all misery loves company!

To start it off, I had FOUR three-putts today.  I just couldn't lag to save my life. I'd leave it 8-10 ft short or blow it 7 ft past the cup. Easily one of my worst putting performances of the year. I still managed to shoot an 85 (13.7) which was so-so for me, but geesh!

Only 1 three putt today, but I couldn't get my glutes firing so I was pushing a lot of shots

I played Tuesday and had one four putt! followed by a three putt!  7 putts in two holes.   Luckily, I still hit the ball well but this was a different course, different greens and ....  I didn't warm up on the greens before we played and they were slower than what I've been playing.     Still no excuse... I have to work on lag putting.   I hit almost everything from 4' and in but my lag putts were 60' ..

I almost said "the sun was in my eyes, my glove was too small, my shoes were tied too tight...I just need to work on my putting.

Just the one on my last round, and it came entirely as a result of the approach shot. On a par 5 I was within 50 yards of the pin in 2. I was in perfect position on the fairway to attack the pin. I bailed somewhat on the pitch shot. It pitched way short left, hit a huge downslope, jumped forward beyond the pin, ended up 25 feet from the pin. I was pissed off, so instead of concentrating and giving myself the best shot at birdie and ensuring a par, I paid it no respect and raced it by.

Sometimes if I've played a hole particularly poorly I just give up mentally when I get to the green. It's really something I need to cut out.

I had one 3 putt, and dare I say it a 4 putt. That said I had 3 single putts, so I sort of forgive myself. I had a good round, scoring 37 points on a course I barely know, however 40 points would have been even better.

0!

40 (+5):
0  GIR

8/9 n GIR
6 one-putts (which saved me)
6/7 FW

I'm trying to figure the math here.  If you were on 8 greens in reg and had 6 one-putts, that's 6-under.  2-putt the other 2 GIRs, that's -6 after 8.  In order to shoot +5, with another 2-putt, you got on that hole in 13 and took a 15?

EDIT: disregard, missed the 0 GIR line.  I guess "n GIR" means near the green.  My bad.

0 three putts today!!!!!                (I didn't play today :~( )

I seriously had a legitimate 4-putt a couple weeks ago. How many people have done that?

I had a ~50 ft. putt for birdie on a par 5 on a hard uphill with a tucked pin, overshot it into the fringe, putted short of the hole by about 6 ft. Then putted downhill way too hard... that thing rolled and rolled. Made the 4-footer back. Seriously... almost coulda had a 5-putt lol. FML

It's encouraging to see that I am not alone

If I serve any purpose on this site, it'd have to be reminding other members their games could be worse. :-D

    • Short of the year for me yesterday.

      Hit my driver towards a crossbunker on the rigth on a Par 4 after making birdie on the previous hole (Par 5). When I walk to the ball i saw that the ball climbed the rigth wall of the bunker and stayed there, 50cm from the wall. I had 2 options, make my stance on the bunker and hit the ball like a baseball player or stand over the wall and grip the club from the shaft halfway to the head, like it was a club for a 5 year old player. I knew that i was facing to give back the birdie on the previous hole.

      I choose the 2nd option, take an 8 iron from 120 yards and hit it as hard as I could towards the green. The flag was short left, with a bunker guarding the middle/rigth portion of the green. 
      I make a perfect contact and the ball took a really low ball fligth towards the flag. Landed 30 yards on the fairway shorter to the flag and start rolling until I saw it disapear on the cup. Yeah!! Eagle!! :D. Raised my arms before it drops, and my playing partners start clapping, they wheren´t close to me to celebrate. A couple of high 5 closer to the green and big satisfaction when i pull it out of the hole. 3 under in 2 holes. Yes, it was luck that the ball went in but i made an amazing recovery shot.   
    • I think pondering the answer is its own punch line....
    • @ANDY_UK Interesting argument, but neither you nor the person that wrote the article has answered my question. If the ball is lost where do you drop? Obviously you don't have any idea where your ball went so how do you equitably drop in a place that does not give you an advantage? It could have hit a tree and gone backwards, it could have taken a horrible bounce and be well right or left of the fairway or green. You don't know so how could you possibly drop anywhere but from where you originally hit your shot? For example you're playing a match, one person hits their ball up against a tree, another person hits their ball, it hits something and goes off never to be seen again. The player who found their ball has to chip out backwards back to the fairway, the player with the lost ball just gets to drop where ever and add a stroke? Technically the player with the lost ball could be in better position after dropping and they both lie 2. Thats just wrong IMHO
    • Getting an old set and having them adjusted is not going to yield you any better results financially than getting a new set. If you're looking for the most bang for the buck, look at www.thegolfworks.com and get a set of their maltby irons built to your spec and flex.  They're only about $299 for the whole set.   The woods are just as amazing but you could find a used OEM driver for cheaper.   
    • Not surprised, they're great looking and performing clubs.
