Played 18 on a course I haven't played in a couple of years.  Kind of a shotmakers course since they take the driver out of your hands on a lot of holes.   Shot 39-40=79 with a triple on the back.  Overall I was pretty happy with the way I hit the ball.

Took one friend out and show him around. We play at an executive course par 31, with 2 short par 4 capping 1st and 9th. Sunday mid-day executive course, there are ton of beginners. We joined up with another 2some. I carry 5 clubs to their full bags. ???

 

It was quite a slow pace and I ended up giving a mini clinic on course management and chipping to the father and son group we play with. We all had a great time. I hit the second green with pretty aggressive backspin, it looked pretty cool, so on the next hole they asked if they can see it again, I said ok. Hit a full wedge 132 yard all the way to the back and must have spun back 5-6 foot with the spiny Nike tour I have in the bag.

 

I think I shot one under or even I didn't keep the score. I went to recruit a golfer to the game and ended up making 3 friends. It was awesome.

I've read through dozens of posts in this thread and want to thank you all for sharing. I am inspired by the scratch players and those breaking 90 or 100 for the first time. It's refreshing and makes me want to go play!

 

After taking a lesson Friday, I had an erratic weekend shooting 38-46-45 Saturday and 43-46-38 today. Struggled off the tee all weekend until the last 9 when a small change with ball position helped me find the fairways again. Best hole today, #5, 514yd par 5 been eating my lunch lately. Drive 314yd, 5 iron 200yd to center of green, 2 putt birdie. I wasn't trying to crush the drive, just wanted a smooth swing into the fairway. My avg drive is around 250, so you can imagine my surprise. Putter has been better than usual as well and it soothes the soul to finally see some putts drop from 10-15 feet (and a couple from 20-30 [emoji15])! Here is the card from the last 9:

 

 

 

Hit 'em good gang!

My wife and I played this morning and we were joined by a young single guy from Longview, WA.  He only played nine holes since he was driving back home in the afternoon.  Great kid!  Hit the ball far with really old clubs.  He said they were his dad's.  This was only his 3rd time playing this year and I think he shot somewhere around +6 for nine holes.  

 

I played a lot better today than yesterday.  Not a great start though with a +6 on the front nine.  We chatted a lot with the kid, and I wasn't focusing very well.  Doubled #9.  The back nine was a lot better.  I birdied #11 and #13, so I was -2 after 4 holes on the back... without hitting a green in regulation!!  However, I promptly gave those shots back with a double on #14.  Had two more bogeys over the last 4 holes, so +2 for a score of 80.  

 

I just had brain f@rts on two holes.  It could have been my best round this year.  Coulda, woulda, shoulda!!

One of the worst rounds a I have had in sometime. Shot a 47 on the front which wasn't top bad, but the wheels came off on the back side and I couldn't hit the ball to save my life. It was so bad I stopped keeping score.

Nice move. Sometimes you're better off just tossing the scorecard in the trash and enjoying the company you're with.

I love those kinds of courses! I'm not a very long hitter but I can keep the ball in play and hit decent wedge shots. Courses like that kinda help to calm my long bomber envy lol.

Shot 85 Saturday, hit 4 greens and 5 fairways but only had 29 putts. I told the guys I was playing with that they need to change my nickname from Spur to Scramblina 😂

I broke 80 for the first time on Saturday morning. It was on a par 71 which is a a little * on the 79 but still it is a new personal best and feels amazing. I played at randall oaks golf course in west dundee, IL.

 

shot a 42 on the front with 1 birdie but the greens were in really great shape and It felt more like a 39 or 40 because I got so close to dropping several more putts on that front. I started the back off with a double after messing up the tee shot with my driver and 2 putting a very tough green and following up with another bogey when an 8 foot putt lipped out. I flipped the switch on 12 and mashed the driver down the middle, put a 50* wedge from 106 to 12 feet and poured int the putt for birdie. I parred out hitting all but one of the last 6 greens in regulation with another 3 putts that were extremely close to going in. I just wish 2 of those putts on the back 9 fell in so I could have shot even par over 9 holes. Looking back there were a few bad shots that easily could have saved me some strokes, but putting saved me as i had 6 one putt holes.

 

I couldnt believe how easy it felt to actually score like that, especially considering the front 9 was not that great.

Another good day on Saturday. Played one of the best courses in Colorado. Rad Hawk Ridge has some serious elevation changes and fantastic views. Tons of fun, but pricey so I don't play there often.

 

I hit everything solid, and had at least 8 birdie putts inside 20 feet. Not one dropped....But I did reach the par 5 18th in two, and rolled in a bending 15 footer to finish with an eagle for a 74. That will bring me back!

Morning from hell ....again!

48 on the front, was just horrible. Lost 3 balls! WOW.

Back shot a 40, didn't feel good probably hangover from the front.

Posted an 88.

Surprisingly I went to the range Saturday and worked on irons and everything felt great. Oh well.

Played in a charity scramble today at North Hempstead CC and had some fun. Hit it well all day for the third day in a row which is a shocking development. As anticipated we were not good enough with the pencil and a legitimate 60 was good for 3rd place. Ended the round in a good note with a nice drive and a holes out wedge for a 2 from 109 yards. At least I got some shop credit and have some golf balls on the way to add to the stock.

Charity scrambles can b fun but usually sllooww. It's amazing how some teams can't "count" very well.

Congratulations on 3rd and shop credit also a plus.

Five hour round and a wait on every tee box. It was brutally slow today.

That's slow! Worst I ever had was 5 1/2 hours, no kidding! I am not the most patient person in the world so it was brutal. I just kept saying it was for a good cause. The next years after that they changed a few things and got it to 5 hours max.

It's all good!

Played in a scramble with the gf, her dad and brother. Combined they golf about 6 or 7 times a year, but we still did pretty well imo. +3 on the front, -2 on the back. Rained most of the front, and blew like crazy for the back. I think the weather was starting to agitate the gf and jer brother cause the last couple holes they started picking each others butt. Came in fourth or fifth but raised a good amount of money for the heart and stroke foundation (gentleman who the tournament is named after passed away from a stroke 3 years ago).

I played a scramble a little while ago, and they had rule that you always two-putted. If no one makes the first putt, pick it up. Really sped things up.

That would have sped things up. On the second hole we played, a short par 5, we waited on the tee for close to ten minutes and another 10 or so in the fairway. The group in from of us made and 8. We made an easy 4 then promptly waited on the next tee box while they made a 6 on a par 3.
