How'd you play?


MmmmmmBuddy

Recommended Posts

Played my last round of vacation today at Teeth of the Dog. Played it from the tips at close to 7,400 yards. First off, Pete Dye is just a sadistic SOB to begin with and this course is insane from the back tees.

 

Went out off the back 9 first and started the round with a nice birdie on the 10th (400 yard Par 4). Made a nice up and down par on the Par 5 11th. Made a brutal double on 12 and then four straight bogies. Finished with two pars for 41.

 

Started the front 9 with a par then three straight birdies followed by for straight bogies. Got to the 600 yard par 5 9th and piped a drive that left me 251 to the front and 267 hole. My caddie talked me out of laying up by calling me a few names in Spanish that insulted my manhood. Ripped a 3 wood that landed on the front edge and rolled through the back. Chipped up and lipped out a 6 footer for birdie. Closed with 37 for 78 at a course with a slope and rating of 75.9/145. Pretty damn pleased with the round as I hit it well all day.

 

On a side note the Callaway X utilities are taking a timeout for a bit. Just lost confidence in them as quickly as I gained it.

Yesterday shot +8, +8 for an uninspired 88. Same course today:+3, +6 for 81. 10 pars, 1 double. Today i just kept an even tempo. I actually slowed down my driver swing and was amazed how the ball soared. Maybe I hit down a little more on the irons, had some well-controlled approaches. 8 fairways, 8 greens, 33 putts. The double was caused by hurrying the downswing with driver, went straight left into the H2O. One 3-putt, so I left a few strokes out there.

Shot 75 today. That's 72,76,75 for my three rounds away from my club this year. It was nice to be able to miss hit an iron a bit and have it still finish on the green. :).

I did that last weekend.  It ROLLED all the way to the green.  350y par 4; driver and 3 putts for par!    :blush:

I was really out of sequence on my swing today.  And my putting (brought out the old putter to teach the new one a lesson--new one is laughing at me, didn't work at all).  Only three 'quality' full shots.  Yet, shot my course handicap--44/44 88 (helped by parring four of the last five holes).  I was very off in two rounds this week, but still scored my 10th consecutive round in the 80s, something I've never done before.  So, again, I must be getting better where my 'bad' rounds are like 10-15 shots better than my bad rounds used to be.  Did start to figure out over the last few holes why I was off.  Time for a video practice session before the next round!

Nonchalant putts count the same as chalant putts.

It's definitely nice when what you feel is a bad is round is way better than what a bad round use to be.

I hate the opposite where you play a good round and look at the scorecard and it was a bloodbath. The best is where you shoot a good number after a really poor start. That gives you so much confidence going forward.

Agreed. I felt like that the other day. I hit the ball well. Just had a few bad bounces here and there and the greens were rock hard. Wasn't upset about it though.

 

Made a 10 on a par 5 to start my night the other night. +9 thru 4, finished -3 thru the last 5. I just need to string together a solid round. It's been a struggle lately.

Played to handicap, 6 over. Should be happy with that, but had 4 X 3 putts (including one from fringe)

Greens were a bit slow, I couldn't settle into my stroke, especially on 6-8 foot putts.

 

Ball striking was ok, didn't hit many really good shots, but was never in any trouble.

 

Exact handicap edged down a tiny bit to my lowest exact of 4.9.

82, hit the ball pretty good today, I had 9 putts today, count 'em 9 putts that were for par or birdie today that I struck really good and came up short, how short you ask, everyone one was less than the length of your phone, and they were all straight in be center of the cup, I could not figure the speed of the greens today, you would figure that at some point I would have knocked one off the planet, but nope, I came up short on everything, I wasn't too disappointed with my play today, just couldn't get he speed on the greens correct

Yeah, I know what you mean.  Two weeks ago I had a couple of rounds where I struck the ball better and more consistently than I ever have done before, and shot 84s, only 2/4 strokes better than this weeks "horrible" rounds.  Felt I left 6-8 strokes on the course that I could have easily made if I had played my short game as I know I can.

Well it was a rough 24 hours for me from Friday night to Saturday. At the range practicing with my buddy for a two man scramble my beloved Accra shaft broke. So I went into the scramble without a trusted driver which wasn't any fun. But our first hole was the LD hole and I hit the first shot and it found the fairway and nobody beat it so that worked. Then on the second hole I was standing in the fairway waiting to hit when someone from the previous home hooked it and hit me in the thigh on the fly at that point I was ready to go home. But the day got better. We parred the first six holes them shot -8 once the rain stopped and the greens were better. Tied for second with three other teams but finished 4th after the tie breakers. My buddy played great and came up huge on some drives, he drove the green 4 times including the last hole which was 330 dogleg right over a big creek to a blind green. We two putted for bodies to tie the group we were playing with which we figured was good enough for first place. All in all a great day and I got a cool bruise show it.

Last week just before a 3 man scramble my buddy cracked the face on his driver and had to use mine, which needless to say didn't fit him at all. So feel your pain there, not so much on the thigh shot. Ouch!

Not sure why I haven't found time to post this yet but last Saturday I played in a 3 man scramble with a buddy an older fella that we play with from time to time. My buddy was off his game(he's usually around an 8 I guess). I played pretty decent but the wedges weren't great. The older guy who is at least scratch, was definitely on his game!

We started on 10 and were -6 through 18. Pared #1 then got hot. Old guy pitched one in from the fairway on 2 for eagle then I made a birdie on the next, and old guy chipped in for another eagle on the next hole, a par 5. Made all birdies until 9 where I figured hey I may as well try and drive the green with my 3w. Its a blind shot over some trees if you go that line. Fairway is to the right with water running up the left side of it, guarding the green. If you go left of the green it's OB. Needless to say this isn't a high percentage shot. I clipped some leaves as it barley went over the tree and landed just short of the green. And by Damn if the old guy lipped out another chip for eagle. We shot -10 on the front 9(our 2nd 9), with a par on #1 to shoot -16. We put our clubs in the car and turned in our card. There was a crawfish boil behind the clubhouse and we start eating crawfish and drinking beer, figuring we were done for the day.

 

After 20 or so min of eating and drinking the pro comes up to us to let know we were tied for 1st and going to have to play it off down 18 for the win. Normally that's no biggie but 18 is overlooked by the clubhouse and back pavilion(where the crawfish boil was). So there were going to be a hundred plus people(100-150) watching us play it off. I thought my buddy was gonna pass out haha! He hates it when others watch him play. I on the other hand love it! Anyways, we end up having to play the hole a few times and finally lose it by missing a putt we shouldn't have. It happens! Overall 2nd place with 40 plus 3 man teams ain't too shabby I guess.

Sorry for the novel, but it was one of the cooler experiences of my golfing life so far.

Not many chances where your regular Joe schmoe golfer gets to play in front of a decent sized gallery and hear the ooo's and ah's the pros get to hear.

My friend's swing speed and mine are similar but I like heavy shaft small head and he likes light shaft big head. So he was playing a big ass fade all day haha

I love playing when people are watching and the pressure is on. I seem to find another gear or level of focus I didn't know I had. It not something I do intentionally it just seems to happen.
