How'd you play?

Played a practice round at my home course. Shot around 95 but stopped keeping score because the heat got to me. Greens were shockingly just about perfect. It's 110 degrees out for the last week and they are in mint shape.Problem was my putting was abysmal because the greens were quick and the breaks that much more severe. It didn't help that the pincutter found his wife in bed with a golfer, because some of those pin positions were brutal and I mean brutal. My scoring irons were not exactly great so left myself with a lot of tricky 30 footers. 

On the plus side, I drove the ball a lot better back to my 230-250 yard dead straight or slight fade. Irons were a mess at times and others were perfect. Case in point... par 3 175 yds into the wind hit a weak 6 iron that went OB. Next shot lying 3 I put it to 3 feet. Felt like a day that with good putting and a few tweaks should have been in the mid 80's.

 

Also first official round with the Wilson FG tours. Overall, I came away impressed but not overwhelmed. Felt like a cheap Pro V1X knockoff sometimes, but going to put it to use in the sunday game.

Bummed. 85 yesterday. I'm not getting results even though I'm striking the ball very well. I only hit 4 fairways but mainly because there are a lot of dog legs on my home course and where I used to hit driver I almost have to hit 3 wood because the ball goes further and rolls off the fairway to the first cut of rough. It's the 3 putts on poor greens. I've gone from a 7.1 handicap to a 7.5 and haven't broken 80 yet this year in 6 rounds. Even if I'm 3-6 ft away from the pin, the ball bounces off line to the left or right. The greens have sand and were aerified and have holes and sand all over them. Practically impossible. 

 

And the thing is: I like my clubs. I've never hit my driver, 3 wood or hybrid as far as I do now. My irons feel incredible and I'm almost to a point where I've got them under control. I can even shot shape with my driver where I've never been able to before. My wedges aren't bad but I am debating jumping the gun and buying some used Scors or Scratch wedges. My putter feels fine. Thinking maybe I shouldn't put my scores in until the greens are better? Don't know. Just getting really frustrated :(

I know how you feel mbrodeur86, I shat a 42/45=87 today. My drives and most of my irons are spot on. Today my putting was great on the front but terrible on the back. Recently punched greens have a lot to do with that.....BTW, I love my new to me SCOR wedges.

 

My wife, daughter and granddaughter joined me for lunch after the round.....had a great lunch....I now have enough gift cards to get a new bag....yeah!

Well, I played the most frustrating round ever, couldn't do anything right.  Almost snapped every club in my bag and threw them into the lake.  It seemed like any time I did hit a good shot, I three putted for bogey.  I was so blinded by fury, that I didn't even notice that I also threw in 7 birdies and at the end of the day, I had a 75.  Theres a lot to be said for keeping your cool on the course.

I tried to play saturday. While sitting on the 7th tee box, waiting to be able to tee off. Looking over at the empty 11th tee box. A group of 4 20 somethings roll up to the 11th tee box. I already know we are stacked up, having waited on the every shot for the last 3 holes. These guys are the reason. I time them from the time they roll up to the tee box until the first practice swing is taken.  8 friggin minutes. The group behind them is sitting in their carts, behind the tee box waiting on these guys. By the time we got onto the 9th tee box. We had been playing for 2:10 minutes, and we played the first 4 holes without waiting in under 45 minutes. As I teed off on the 9th, I made my decision, I was done. handed my $10 skins money to the guys in the other cart and said have a nice day. 

No way, no how, was I going to play a 6 hour round waiting 5-10 minutes on every shot so these tools could do their thing. Rumor has it that they berated a marshall when something was said to them, and had some nasty things to say to a couple of women in the women's group that got stacked up behind them as well and said something. 

In the time I have played golf, I have never walked off in the middle of a round, but if I had stayed, I would have said something, and in the mindset I was in, had one of these kids responded to me the way they are purported to have responded to the marshall or the women, I would be sitting in jail today. So all in all, it turned alright. I didn't spend father's day in jail for issuing an epic beat down on some liquored up self centered and utterly lacking in courtesy 20somethings.

I know how you feel.....Saturday, we were the first foursome of 40 players, BUT the Pro shop slid a 4some in front of us.....on one of the Par 3's, we counted 7 tee shots for the group......Listen guys & gals, Saturday morning is NOT the right time to try to teach your friends how to play golf.

Played an outing today at Trump Ferry Point in a nice 30 mph breeze that was fun downwind and brutal into it. Played well all around and we shot -10 as a team to place second which got is all golf GPS watches. Shot of the day was the cut 3 wood into the breeze from 242 that finished three feet from the pin for a kick in eagle.

 

My only real gripe of the day was that I did not win either of the long drive holes which was BS. On #2 I hit driver 331 downwind and was apparently beat by a guy in his mid 60s that could not hit a driver 200 yards on a good day (as I was told by my hosts for the day). On #15 I hit driver 285 in the wind thanks to a good kick off the backside of a fairway bunker and was 25 yards past the current long drive. One group left to come through and one of those guys claimed the long drive when we could see where they played their second from....nowhere near where my ball was. I am used to this happening but the prize was a new Scotty which made it sting a bit. Don't mind getting beat straight up but hate losing to cheaters.

Played Sunday. Had an interesting round. 46/40 for an 86. Started off ok, faded around the middle and came back strong. Twice I bailed myself out on par 5's by striking perfect 3 woods after taking a unplayable, once for bogey and another for par. Highlight of the day was the two 180 yard holes. Knocked one to 20 feet and another to about 18 feet. both were closest to the pins with one group to play. Plus knocked in my birdie attempt so I should win a little dough. I've been on a good swing groove and hope I continue that though the next few weeks.

Played 9 today and shot 37 - that was good - had back to back bogeys on the two par 5's, one from 193 in the middle of the fairway (tough second shot if you go for it because there is water right next to the green right and OB left - I chose the water.)

 

That was bad. :(

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Spent the rainy afternoon at top golf. Had about 8 beers but still dominated my friends- was a good time. Lots of rain in Chicago lately.

In a word terrible. Shot 77 at my home club and that was only due to the fact that I got up and down from all over. Driver struggles continue so I will be at PGA Superstore looking for a new one today.

I've gotten to the point I just seldom play on the weekend, usually hit the range once or twice, but unless I'm going to start my round at daybreak, it's just not worth the hassle.

My wife and I got up early and hit the course at 6am. It was already 78* but that's a lot better than that the 112* that it's supposed to be today. Had 3 birdies in the first nine holes. The #2 hole par 4 has been mine lately. I own it. I have birdied that hole the last four times I've played it! After the 3 birdies... Nothing! Haven't played much in the morning lately, but for the next 10 days, the forecast is for temps from 107-114*. Guess I will play early for a while.

I'm planning to get out to the course at daybreak tomorrow, not to avoid the heat, but to avoid all the weekenders that will start showing up between 10a-11a! - lol
