How'd you play?


MmmmmmBuddy

Recommended Posts

Off topic, and sorry guys, but just wanted to say I find this interesting..

 

Chisag - you saw several AMA traditional doctors with no answer but then found a solution and relief through wholistic therapy .. just saying in some cases it may be beneficial to keep an open mind.........

 

 

... Let me start by sayng at 64 I am in great shape, lift, do cardio and played golf 30 days in a row twice last spring and summer. So when I got severe cramps in early March I went to my GP MD and he thought it was a virus. Didn't get better in the "few days" he said I would, so I went to a Gastro MD and he thought it was a "stubborn virus" and ordered a stool sample and blood test just in case which both came up negative. He wanted to give it a little more time to see if it would improve. It didn't. I was in bed or on the couch for 3 weeks by then with severe cramps, weak and dizzy. I went to the ER to get a series of tests, EKG, Ultrasound, Catscan and 4 more blood tests that all came up negative. (Went back a few days later when I passed out trying to get to the bathroom and the Mrs panicked) Informed my Gastro and he suggested I try Xifaxan to combat Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth. It really started to help.    

 

... After going to my Gastro, my wife took me to her Naturopath that had me supply another stool sample that cost $499 but breaks down everything in it. EVERYTHING. It came back about 10 days into my 14 day antibiotic program and she was disappointed I took the Xifaxan, but she understood. The interesting part was she designed a program for me that addressed everything I was either deficient in or had an over growth of with a lot of supplements and a detox program of two shakes a day for 14 days. I am taking 25 different pills and the 2 a day shake and feeling light years better. Not only is she addressing the symptom, but unlike many MD's, she is attacking the underlying reasons I got sick in the first place. A compromised immune system and a gut bacteria imbalance. I think total cost was around $1400 but worth every penny if I came back much healthier than I was when it first hit. She also guessed what was wrong when the other Dr's couldn't figure it out. She was not exactly right, but very close as the stool sample showed. So I am right there with you, an open mind is a great idea when it comes to your health and getting treated for whatever is deficient as opposed to just treating symptoms. 

 

... Sorry to say, but I feel like high 70's is a bad round  ^_^

Just got back from early morning golf. 38* on the 1st tee, 64* on the 18th green...

 

Hard to make distance with that temp swing! Strange though, I shot 40 on the front, and 46 on the back. Ho hum 86 and home in time for lunch!

My friend's locker at Bayou. He's a member here and at two clubs in CT. Must be nice

 

I started with double and then everything clicked - shot 39-36 75. Afterwards I thought, it's about time! I hit the ball in the center of the club pretty much all day

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.

Didn't play great. Didn't play horrible. It was the opening 18 holer for our league. I focused on what I'm learning in my lessons and tried not to make any big numbers. Took 14.5 points out of 20 total....10 for each 9. Shoot 42/39. Tomorrow is the first Monday 9 hole match.

Played with my wife and a couple of friends today. Up and down round but finished on the right side of par. Had 5 birdies, an eagle , a double and 2 bogies. Finished at -3 (69). Course was in great shape. Greens were very hard and fast.

I had an interesting 9 holes yesterday after work. Let me rant a little before I talk about my round, the course on Monday punched the greens for a 5th time since Me becoming a member in Mid March, some greens are on their 7th or 8th punch this season, now I know that these are bent grass greens but I have NEVER in my life have heard of a course punching greens this much, bent in the south is normally 4 times a year with top dressing and werti-cutting them aggressively with a lot of watering and fans to keep them cool in hot months. Anyways, with that said you can probably see where this story might be heading.

 

I pared 1 - 3 pretty what seemed like routine pars, I get to Hole 4 a par 3 have 8 feet and burnt the lip high side break left myself a 1.5 foot clean up might have been a hair firm on the line but I have a guess that punch holes kept the ball from breaking a few inches that would have resulted in a holed putt. I get onto the 5th tee box and have to wait on the group of 3 in front of me. I got cold and hit my Drive TERRIBLE, ended up with 210 into the pin up hill into the wind,came up short but in a good spot so i thought, made a bad pitch and ended up with bogey. Next hole had to wait on the group ahead of me again, I just started to assume that they were playing for big money or something with how they acted because they were going at a snails pace and didn't appear to be playing poorly 2 of them were playing the tips. Anyways, hit my drive low snap hook that turned out in my favor into the wind, found the left fairway, hit a little punch 9 into the green from 125 into the wind up hill to 6 feet, made putt for birdie. Next hole hit a great drive, hit a great lay-up on the par 5, hit a great low PW into the green that was hole high right about 10 feet (pin was tucked left edge was aimed where i putt the shot), I hit the putt perfect line, perfect speed I see it bounce about 1/2 way to the hole off a punch spike to the right and ball sits dead center of the cup on the right lip 1/2 ball right of falling in. Robbed for birdie by punch marks 100% positive on that hole. Next hole I hit a piss poor tee shot into the par 3, left myself a tricky up and down, gave myself a 6 foot putt to clean up, hit put speed I wanted and line I wanted, ball looks like it is going in until 3" in front of the cup when it make a 90* turn and picks up 3 feet of speed like a poltergeist came out of the cup and back handed it away. I had a 4 foot clean up for bogey and made it, I sat there for awhile putting that thing 7 times lipped it 2 or 3 times low and made it one time, putt was just a weird hole location I guess. So 1 over going into number 9, hit a good drive, hit a decent 2nd shot going for the green in two, left myself a 8 footer for birdie (hard to get close to the pin from my angle where I missed the green), I miss read the putt and made par matched my personal best of 37 on that course front 9 but with how I was playing it was kind of disappointing, felt I left 3 or 4 strokes out on the course, maybe even 5 if I felt like being greedy.

 

As it turns out that slow group in front of me had been playing for a chunk of change at least the two guys from the tips were... $25 trash, $25 birdies or better, $50 a side. I guess for some people that is reason enough to play at a snail pace and be super methodical about your golf game.

There's something going on with your greens for them to be doing that. I'm in the Midwest and we punch spring and fall, alternating large and small tine punches. That seems to be the standard in this area

Played in another clubs Ryder cup style format this past weekend. Ended up playing well despite having not played the course in years. Ended up shooting 71-70 and then played pretty well in the alternate shot. The only point I lost was in the four ball where I got zero help from my partner. Overall it was a really fun weekend.

I made NO putts today in my walking group.  Two doubles on the front nine and shot 43, but shot 37 on the back nine with 3 sandy pars.  The sandys were NOT from putting; I stuck each one to tap-in distance.

Tried to do 9, was playing really well +1 after 5, however I was breaking in some foot joy icon blacks and they gave me a blister on my left Achilles so I quit early. Really bummed about the new shoes

It's golf.  The day before I couldn't get out of the sand.  I guess I was just practicing... and it paid off.

Bad again today.Doing everything the pro told me too focus on.According to him my "positions" are perfect on video and should yield great results.Than why does the ball go so badly in an actual round?Im the rare one who did better with an odd-unorthodox over the top swing

Very frustrating day.  Was hitting my irons beautifully.  When I could, tee shot was only working half the time.  And didn't make a putt all day.  Good thing, only one double bogie (I usually have 3 or 4 or more, even on good days), bad thing, only 3 pars.  Feeling really good about the irons though, keeping my new found distance (club to club and a half longer) and getting much more accurate.  Playing again tomorrow, we're having the longest stretch of absolute perfect golf weather I can remember.  High of 80, sunny, light winds.
