How'd you play?


MmmmmmBuddy

Recommended Posts

I played yesterday evening with my wife and son at our Florida course- she's a beginner (54.0 index) and he's never played a serious round but wanted to come out.

Despite having double coaching duties and playing myself- it was a great time! It's fun for me to see them finally starting to enjoy golf (I've been inviting them for 20 years!)

Just the fact that I get to share the game with them was enough to keep me happy- despite my mediocre playing.

Wife- 125

Son- Highly questionable 96

Me- 82

That is great to hear! I am going to download it now. 

You will probably also like the combine aspect of the app for testing your putting and irons.

What I would like to know is WHY I was hitting generally good solid shots on the front nine, but at #10 and every hole on the back nine, I struggled with shots that have been very typical of my play over the last couple of months.

Asked ...

..and Answered!! (which according to the tv lawyer shows is a no-no in court 😆)

Heard a funny saying: "It's not How ... it's how many" -- great recovery!

Clearly the course doesn't have the hole laid out correctly!  😂

I know, right? If they had just listened to me, it would have played out perfectly instead of me having to knock one over trees to approach the green.

I worked some OT yesterday but afterwards I met up with Owen to play at River Heights.  He had already played a round with his friends and was actually the person who decided to book for us to play as well.  After we checked in we ran into an older friend who works with us, Randy, and he decided to join us, too.  Really windy day with sustained winds over 20 mph but otherwise beautiful.

Hole one:  Pulled my driver left into the treeline separating 1 and 18; about 100 yards out.  Pulled out my 21° hybrid and hit it clean.  Low out of the trees then it took a left turn at the dogleg and ended up just short and left of the green about 220 yards away.  Just an insane shot!  Chipped on, two putt; bogey.

Hole two:  Because of the wind I decided to put the driver away and hit 3 wood the rest of the way.  240 yard tee shot cutting the dogleg and ending up just before the river that separates the green.  Pulled out my 9 iron and hit great.  Too great, as it was over the green by about 20 yards.  Best iron strike I've had in months. Chipped back on, two putt; bogey.

Hole three:  Long par five.  3 wood into the wind about 180 yards, then another 3 wood about 205 just in front and to the left of the waste area before the green.  9 iron again, this time into the wind for 135 onto the green.  Best iron strike I've had in minutes, lol.  Two putt, par.

Hole four:  Par three about 170 into the wind.  Pulled hybrid and managed to draw it right onto the green; first time I've hit the green in several rounds.  Three putt (sigh) bogey.

Hole five:  Hit 3 wood about 225 to clear the river then hit 7 iron 145 to go just off the back of the green.  Three irons in a row that I've actually hit well!  Then sadly four putts to double bogey.

Hole six:  3 wood about 220 to clear the waste area and wound up just off the fairway on the right side.  Pulled the hybrid and hit it great, hugging the line separating the rough and the fairway.  I lost track as it came down but it must have hit and run forever because we found it on the green about six feet from the hole for my first green in two.  Drained the putt for my first eagle!!! 

"He must be Eagle Man!"1151413928_Screenshot2022-05-31at08-19-122013-04-05_1008.png(PNGImage980653pixels).png.c10bbf63ab82f49a0d4ffd5985e93ff1.png

Hole seven:  Short par three, I managed to chunk my 9 iron twenty yards, then hit 9 again over the green.  Then I duffed my chip, chipped again, and three putted for a quad bogey.  Oof, lol.

Hole eight:  Absolutely clobbered my 3 wood 275 yards, then mishit my wedge to the right of a big uphill undulating green.  Three putts, bogey.

Hole nine:  3 wood 225, PW 125 to just over the green.  Duffed the chip, chipped again to almost hole it, dropped the putt for bogey.

Thats a +9 45 for those keeping score at home.  Both Owen and Randy were playing terrible and it was getting a little late, so we decided to just scramble on the back and skipped a few holes.  It was clear that Randy especially was not having a good time, but he was more excited about the eagle than I was.  He was the guy that got us into the game last year and he's been really excited to watch us progress over time.  I'm thrilled to death that he got to be there to witness.

That's a great round and it's wonderful to see how your game is progressing! Congratulations on getting your first eagle, that's awesome!

I played last Sunday and was very disappointed in my game.  My drives were all over the place.  Fortunately for the most part my irons were behaving themselves. Sometimes I wonder why I keep torturing myself  lol

See there, you're starting to get that "course management" thing.  Some of my most memorable holes have been played from two, even three fairways 🙂.

Course management was the name of the game Sunday. I couldn't hit a fairway (at least the right one) and had some fun getting creative trying to get back on course.
