How'd you play?

Had a very interesting round Saturday: Played in a skins game, and started out double, par, double, birdie, birdie. Won a skin off the second birdie which was a nasty 10 foot side hill putt which broke 3-4 feet and I hit it directly in the side pocket. From there I played bogey or so golf. Ended up shooting 39/46 for a somewhat disappointing 85. Still hitting my driver pretty well although it was my irons turn to shine.

We've all been there... Just push through and throw up a good score on your next outing - that will make you forget about that bad round :)

Well I kinda did that yesterday. I had 45 for 9 holes, which is better than my current handicap of 21.5. How we got there, is an adventure. Started off Par, Par and then proceeded to go triple, Par,Triple, bogey, bogey, bogey, par. 2 of those pars were good enough to earn me skins so there was that, but the lesson of the night is KEEP THE DAMN BALL IN PLAY. The 2 triples had me hitting 3 from the tee (flied one right OB, topped one into a forced carry water hazard). I hit a couple shots that I missed right that had they been on target would have set me up for an eagle and birdie putt (made par on both) but such is life.

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.

Next day, same course, same conditions.  Same Driver results, but only five or so 'quality' strikes with the irons, rest were just a bit off, with one awful. But putting and short game was much better, so shot 44/42 86.  3 doubles, 7 pars.  Wish the elements would come together in the same round more often.  Lately its been drive well, rest 'meh', flush irons, rest 'meh', good short game, rest 'meh'.  Scores are best when its the short game on, however.

I'm in the frustrated camp today :( Had my 9 hole golf league yesterday. Hit 86% of the fairways and a whooping 11% of the greens. Ended up in a lot of left greenside sand traps as I was pushing everyone of my approaches and of course my sand play was less than stellar. Back to the drawing board.

Getting my driver back in order, which is making things a lot easier. Tuesday, shot a 41/42:83, and today shot a 39/41:80. Both good scores for me - and hopefully on the road to better this season!

Anne arundel county. Quite a few of us in the Baltimore Metro area. We have a gathering this weekend on Sunday at compass Pointe if your interested. We play all around the DMV. Played Bulle Rock a couple times last year which BTW, I just saw was being put up for sale by the developers! Anybody have a couple million for it that I can borrow?! Lol

I'm playing twice a week now.

That's a huge reason I'm playing better than ever. Other reasons:

Callaway 816 driver, 3-wood, and hybrid -- these clubs are long and true, and easy to hit - par-5's are always in play now

Nike putter- a 3-putt is a rare event these days

 

The key to it all is a totally simplified swing. Solid base with weight on right instep during backswing - result is no "swaying"

Keeping the club face closed on backswing. - I have no idea why this helps so much, but it really makes all the difference in the world.

Hitting the ball hard. - this probably sounds funny, but to hit a good shot, you need to compress the ball. It's not a big long John Daly backswing, it's more like a John Rahm swing. Just enough to get the club in a position to really bring it at contact.

Laser rangefinder. - really knowing the distances, and really knowing how far you actually hit your clubs is EVERYTHING.

 

MY weakness is my really short chipping game. I don't practice that enough. When the pros are just off the green, they actually expect to hole out their chips. And if they don't, more often than not, they are within a very few feet.

That is the area that I know is my weakness, and I know that if I practice those situations more, I would really be a threat to break par at any given day.

But I choose to not have the time for that as I have too many other things I like to do. And I understand and accept that reality. I can't complain about my game, because I know what's working and what isn't, so for that reason, I'm out...

Been playing really well recently. Was beating my buddy, who has played for 10+ years, yesterday by a couple of strokes. That is until the last hole, where I blew up. Everything is coming together it feels like. My putting has never been better. I cannot remember the last round with a 3 putt, and I feel like that may be one of the strongest parts of my game at the moment. I have the Sigma G Anser to thank for that.

 

Cannot wait for the rain to pass these next couple of days so I can get back out there.

Ugh.. feel ya, bro ;-)

 

Working on focusing / concentrating is such an oxymoron that we semi-/quasi-analytical types just cannot handle it for 1 - 1.2 seconds at a time...... :(

My wife was working today, so I waited around until she got off work around 3pm, then we hit the course.  Big mistake!!  The course was jammed on a really nice day.  All carts were out; we finally got one 3 minutes before our tee time.  We were paired with a twosome from out of town, and they weren't very good, but very friendly.  

 

After an opening birdie, it was all downhill.  My attitude sucks when play is slow.  My wife quit keeping score on hole #5, and we quit after nine holes played in 3 hours 10 minutes.  Playing early tomorrow!!

Played in our opening member/member this morning and in was interesting. Started out in very little wind and promptly went out and doubled the first two holes. Made birdie on three and eagle in four to get back to +1.....then the winds came. Played the rest of my round in 40 mph winds with gust near 60 mph. Struggled coming in and not even sure where i ended the day but high 70's would be my guess. There were three par 4s on the back dead into the wind that were not even reachable. On 14 I hit hybrid from 215 and came up 10 yards short. Fun day overall and it was great to get out and play. As a plus the HZRDUS Yellow in my 917D3 was an absolute winner. Striped it all day, unfortunately the rest of my game was very rusty.

Had a pretty good day on the course today.  Overall I was happy with the round,  but it should have been better.  Putter was hot and i was chipping/pitching pretty well.   Bad shots were pretty costly and I ended up with 4 doubles,  but had 3 birdies to help offset.   Round was 37-41:78

My goal today was to shoot 85. I cruised through the first 6 holes crushing drives and flushing irons. +2 so far. I get to the second par 5 and let's just say it was a dumpster fire. I duck hooked my drive into the woods. I gave myself 5 minutes to find my ball and I couldn't find it even though it didn't go that far in. Went back to the tee box and blocked my third shot to the right in the trees. Tried to hit a knock down 5 iron but caught it thin off of the pine straw and it only went about 50 yards into fairway. Had 207 into the green so went with a 4 hybrid and topped it. Then knocked a 7 iron pin high but off of the green to the right. Chipped on and two putted. My round never recovered after that. It was either par, bogey, or a double. Surprisingly 6 pars but still shot in the 90's. It was very discouraging, but I saw glimpses of progress from the recent hours at the range. Going to get a range session in tomorrow night and then walk 18 on Tuesday. I'm thinking about keeping a sheet with 1-100 on it and diary what each stroke was to give myself some insight. Anyone ever do this?

Sounds like it may be worth investing in a shot tracker system. Check in the equipment review threads for some info.

Played nine this afternoon with a grand daughter in tow. We had too much fun. I shot 39 on a windy day when I couldn't hole a putt. Nothing over five feet!

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.
