How'd you play?

After posting my best round of the year on last weeks Tuesday night league, I posted my worst round of the year last night. I had 2 decent swings the entire night, I just couldn't figure it out.

... I wish it were that easy here. Too many bunkers with high lips in the 6-8 feet range and hard pan, as in not even any dust on top. They "claim" the high winds blow all the sand out of bunkers but Chicago was windier. And several courses have sand in some and not others. I'd love to play the ball in the middle of my stance and use the leading edge of a 58/08 MG3 to clip the ball off the hard pan but with the high lips there just isn't enough loft. So putting it forward in my stance and clipping it perfectly is the only play. Sometimes I pull it off and sometimes I don't. I just don't understand why the bunkers are so deep when they aren't gonna put any sand in them. 🙄  2 or maybe 3 foot lip and it would be manageable because as you said, I could use less speed but with high lips it just hits into the slope and you have the same shot again, so best to just be long or even over the green and of course not go in them, which basically cuts many greens in half. It is really the only thing I dislike about Phoenix golf. 

It is about what you get used too.   I played a round where the course had just put new sand in the bunkers and it was really fluffy.  Had no idea what to do, kept going right under the ball and the ball would go 2 feet; tried to use the bounce and no luck.   Sand that is firmer and I can elevate the ball and get it over the high lips.

Sand has been an absolute struggle for me this entire year. Maybe 2 decent shots all year. Simliar sand too. Have tried opening up, leaving the face normal, all different stuff. Cannot stop skulling the thing I dont know why

The golf gods were smiling on me last night... I was hitting driver, hybrids, irons, wedges and putter on line and the correct distances.  Had a 38 for league play including a lost ball that had us cornfused since we thought we saw it land.  Then we started playing the back 9 as i usually do just to get some extra holes in before dark.  Started off with 2 pars and then went birdie birdie eagle!  The next four holes the longest birdie putt was 12' and i was jogging from cart to green as it was getting dark fast.  Lipped out two of those putts and had a 32 on the back for a 9 hole pb.  The fairways were hard and running fast so the course played very short.  i did drop a couple 20'ers on par 3's to save par after chip shots ran out.  17 & 18 were real dark.  The clubhouse guy we are friends with came out to chase us in until he heard the score then he stayed to watch.  

Wow, congrats on the PB !! 👏  Looks like you east coast spies are going to be giving up a boat load of strokes when east meets west ... hopefully Rob is already working on that 👍.

... I played in a Pro Am at South Winds in Memphis and the bunkers were absolutely perfect. A nice heavy, firm sand that was so easy to play out of and easy to rake back to pristine. Pro's are just so spoiled. I am not a big fan of fluffy sand either but prefer it to no sand at all. Speaking of spoiled, I played Olympia Fields in Chicago a good 10 years ago and they had the sand area of the practice green boarded off into 3 sections labeled A, B and C. 3 different types of sand and the members got to vote on which one they preferred. I thought one was clearly better than the other 2 so maybe just placating the members but it sure beats the typical muni.

Played Trump National Golf Club Los Angeles today.  I live walking distance from this course.  Absolutely perfect conditions with the greens stimping at 11.  A Pete Dye design with many undulations in the fairway and also in the greens.  Shot an 81 and felt good about it.  Only one 3-putt (greens are enormous).  Hit 3 excellent shots.  An 8 iron to 5 feet on the 135 yard par 3 which is #11.  Hit a greenside bunker shot to 18" on #17.  Hit a solid drive that has a 235 yard carry over a gorge on #18.  Beautiful day, beautiful conditions & a great 4-some.  Played the round in 4 hours flat.

Talk about perfect conditions!  The bunker sand was the best I have ever seen.  The fairways were perfect, taking a divot was like slicing through meatloaf.  The rough was thick.  The greens were immaculate with every subtle break running very true.  It felt like a course set up for the Tour.  This course is special & sits right on the coastal bluffs of Palos Verdes, CA.  I'd have to say, this is the best conditioned course that I have ever played.

It's been a slow year for the golf game.  Have just been tied up with other activities and do not have the same "want" this year for whatever reason. 

However, I did play in an outing recently.  Expectations were low as I hadn't played a full round in about 5 weeks or really picked up a club.  Surprisingly I did not have any mishits - scratch that I did have a thin one with my hybrid.  

Driver was really good.  Pretty good distance and accuracy all day.  Approach shots caught the green for the most part, but I was certainly not pin seeking.  I think I had two shots under 100 yards within 10 feet and one from 125 where I was about 12 feet.  Everything else 35/40 feet on average or missed a couple greens.  Keep in mind we were playing from white tees so I did not have that far on approaches.

Only had to chip twice on a couple par 5's.  Both were great and gave us tap in birdies.

Putter - different story - did not help my team all day.  Could not start my ball on line to save my life.  A couple decent putts, but probably only 3 that had a chance to go in. 

Fun day out with great weather.  Happy with my play, just wish putter could have been a bit better.  Team was -9. Winners were -12.

Sometimes I am borderline good from the sand, other times it is a struggle, but the beauty is I have zero expectations since there are almost no practice areas with bunkers around me. If the sand is fairly fluffy, I'm pretty confident I'll get it out first try. Wet, dense, or packed sand, I'm more likely to try to pick it clean and hope I gauge the distance/spin correctly, but it is so variable from course to course around here (sometimes even hole to hole) that I am just happy to get out on the first try.

I had always been pretty good out of fluffy sand, but this year not so much. We have had alot of compacted sand of late and I think that has thrown me off a bit. I cannot get it right.
