How'd you play?

IT finally happened for me. Got my first ace on Saturday. Third hole, wind at my back 125 to the pin. I hit a pitching wedge choked down and 3/4 swing. Played a lowish spinning hook/draw. Took one hop hit the flag stick and went down. Funny part was i played alone. I called my dad right away to tell him we were tied even though he gets style points for flying his in the hole. Ended up shooting a 37 on the front. Had a legit chance at breaking 80 but the back was an unmitigated disaster. Started off double, bogey, bogey, double. Ended up having a string on pars and got to 18 needing a birdie for a 79. I ended up hitting a straight pull and had to take an unplayable. Ended up with an 82. I played Sunday shooting a 90ish.I played after pulling an all nighter but did manage a KP, but no birdies. My putting was by far not as sharp as it was a day ago.

Not all yesterday or today because guess what boys and girls? It's raning again on the Florida Gulf Coast. Who needs a hurricane? El Niño is the silent killer of a golf game and golf courses.

Congrats Sportsfan on your ace.  You know though it didn't really happen because there was no one there to see it ;)  Frustrating too about the back nine, if I had a dollar for every time I've done that myself...

Congrats on the ace! You'll have a great story for years to come.

 

I don't have much experience with it, but if I remember correctly, I couldn't keep my head in the game after my ace.

After a week of work that consisted of trips to LA, Las Vegas, Miami and the Bahamas I was not sure what to expect when I went out this morning.  Made eagle on the par 5 first hole and held on from there to finish the front at even par.  Had an up and down back nine with 3 birdies 3 bogies and 3 pars to finish the day at level.  Got the Hogans back this week while I was on the road and could not wait to get them back in the bag.  Once I get through September I think the clubs are going to go into hibernation for the winter due to travel and work schedule.

79 and 77 on Sunday, solid but managed to make three 7's in two rounds. A quad, a treble and a double. Couple of lost balls being to aggressive and an unfortunate incident involving a bunker rebound on to my chest (oops).

 

Shame as I was 2 shots off third and 4 off second. Still compared with 6 weeks ago it's a huge improvement.

Keep your chin up and keep swinging (just not at the same time!)

 

I just came off a dozen or so rounds where I regularly hit 15-20 over my handicap. It's painful, but it is temporary.

If you expect a bad shot after bad shot, that's what you will get.  Don't put so much pressure on yourself to hit a good shot, but always think you are going to hit a good shot; even if it isn't, still keep thinking it.

 

Remember, we attract to ourselves whatever we give our attention, focus, and energy.  If you have negative thoughts, bad things happen; positive thoughts bring about what we are focusing on.

Congrats Sp0rtsfan! It's a wonderful feeling to get the First one.

 

I got to play Saturday, before going camping for the weekend. I shot a wonderful 41/50=91....:(

 

The front nine was Solid....but the back nine played slower and I was fighting my lower back, as it stiffened up after 9 holes.....front nine had a Birdie on 145 Par 3 and a chip in Par from off the back of the Green on the Par 4 #9.

Today was round put 9 new clubs in the bad and changed the grip on my putter. The new wedges are solid and performed well. The new irons new some new shafts and the putter grip is gonna take some getting used to. I made 4 doubles and shot 82.

I feel the same way when I'm playing bad too. I wasn't playing my best yesterday and basically told my brother that I quit and I hate golf. Guess where I was today? 79 today with 9 gir and 6 fairways. Played back 9 first and went 42 but shot 37 on the front. No birdies all pars and 1 bogey on the front and a triple on 13. It happens. Keep plugging along.....

 

I still feel my irons are closing on impact (and not by me). I hit more than a few shots today where I was aiming right of target and the ball too off straight left. If I line my iron head to where I want to start, take a practice swing and put the the head behind the ball it is closed. No idea why. My grips loose? Shaft loose? Technique? I have no clue but it seems to be getting worse.

Biggest issue right now is that I don't have any idea where anything is going, also known as army golf, I manged an 84, despite having 3 doubles on the back nine. I do t feel like I am playing poorly, but nothing is on, I'm not sttiking anything badly but as I said, I don't know which direction it's going its golf I guess, just wish I could be more consistent

Sounds like you scrambled pretty well except for those three holes, so that's positive.  If you can't trust your swing to put the ball where you think it should go, then it might be time to fly in your swing coach.  #TourSauce   :)
