How'd you play?

Played Day 2 of a Member Guest today that consisted of three nine hole matches. Shot one over in the first match on my ball and my partner played decent. We won 7 out of 10 points. Match two I shot even par and got waxed by a 7 that shot even par on his ball gross and lost 7 of 10 points. That was bad enough but in match three I lost 9 of 10 points to a 14 that shot 2 under.....gross. I played 27 holes in one over par and got absolutely crushed in two matches. Can't wait to go back tomorrow for the final 18 holes.

There is no way that a 14 shot -2 gross under tournament conditions, and I am also suspicious of a 7 that shot even par.  According to the table published by the PopeofSlope Dean Knuth, the odds of the 14 shooting 10 shots better than his handicap is 37,000 to 1.  I can't imagine what the odds are for him shooting 16 shots better.  The odds of a 7 shooting even is 1,200 to 1.

Or, as we like to say SBMF... We even had a hat made and presented it to a buddy of ours who notoriously shoots significantly under his index during tournaments (all friendly, mind you), so he took it with a good chuckle!  non of us are making a living off this- rather spending our retirement!

They both should have played the lottery yesterday. Day 2 I played two nine hole matches and shot one over in both....won six of a possible 20 points. I give up and glad it is over.

Shot decent- starting to get the feel of the new putter.

 

Always seemed to hit the wrong side of the green tho- but, can't complain too much as a AM on the green, right?

Last round of club championships. Conditions were tough again, 11/2 inches of rain overnight made for ver wet, soft fairways with no run. Greens were a little slower as well. Played ok early, until a triple that had a couple of brain fades, the first was playing a shot from a plugged lie in the rough, I was unaware that a temporary local rule was in place for free drop through the green, silly mistake. After gouging it out I played a 9 iron to the green, and when I put it back in the bag it was my wedge. A 3 putt compounded all my errors.

 

Played a few great shots, 2 5 woods stand out. First was from 200 out on a par 5 for my 3rd, to about 10 foot. Next was from 220 out after topping my 3 wood off the tee. It was lying on soft sandy wasteland . Flushed it to about 20 foot and just missed the birdie putt. Lost a ball after a blocked drive gave me another triple.

 

Ended up with 83/77 with 2 triples and a double.

 

Finished 10th overall in the club champs, which I'm not too unhappy with. Too many mental errors cost me. Improved focus is a definite area for me to work on.

That's an interesting local rule. I've never heard of free relief from a plug in the rough.

 

How does the rule play? Just place it near the plug? Can it be cleaned?

Sounds like they were playing lift clean and place through the green due to overnight rain the OP mentioned

To be honest I'm not exactly sure of the details of the relief. Someone else looked at the board afterwards after I commented on my round. Not sure if it was lift clean and place or a free drop only if plugged. It really was a stupid error to not check the board prior to teeing off.

Often times the tournament directors will say that the embedded ball rule is in effect through the green, not just in the fairway, so any place that is not a hazard or a bunker, if your ball is embedded, you get to lift, clean, and drop the ball.

What do Kenny B and Jason Day have in common?

 

Answer:  We both had a Hole-in One this week.

 

Today on #12 at Columbia Point GC playing 158y, I hit a very nice 7i that landed, took one hop and spun back in the cup.  Here's the hole:

 

attachicon.gifIMG_0776.jpg

 

My wife and I were playing with another couple that we occasionally play with.  It's the first time the other couple have seen an ace.  My wife, playing for 52 years, has never had one.  This is my third.

Congratulations on the ACE

Our greens are about as good as they have ever been, if not better, the only problem with that is, once the morning dew burns off in the late morning they are really fast, they go from 10'ish to 11' ish, maybe even a bit faster than that. So the front nine putted ok, the back nine they got fast, I lost 5 shots around the greens on the back which included 3, 3 putts. I also had what I thought was a very good chip shots that ended up really bad. On 11 I was short off the front, pitching up hill and had plenty of green, I hit what I thought was a perfect pitch shot it rolled just past the hole, caught the slope left and rolled another 30 feet, then I 3 putted from there. The speed of the greens showed in all the scores, with the low score for the Day being 74. I'm not sure what the new greens keeper has been doing but the greens are looking and playing extremely good right now. Other than being really fast, they do roll really good, so that helps a little.

Excited for Kenny!

 

We finally got to play today after nearly three weeks. It showed - ugly 83 - nothing memorable other than tons of rust. Lots of trees down on the course.

 

Sadly the one I'd love to see gone was still there.
