How'd you play?


MmmmmmBuddy

Recommended Posts

Guys my goal for the past 2 seasons has been to break 85. I am playing to a 17 right now so I consistently shoot in the upper 80s low 90s. I have been putting in the extra work and focusing on the tee box and 100 and in. I walked 18 today and shot an 83!!! I played boring/smart golf and got it done. I am so happy. Its one of those things that you work really hard at and you keep falling short but then it finally happens and you feel so rewarded.

 

I got my putter cut an inch and regripped yesterday with a Superstroke Flatso 2.0. I also put the Cobra F8 in the bag after being fitted for it yesterday. I honestly feel like those two tweaks helped this happen. I had several drives over 300 today. I am very excited to track the data on these two clubs and see what happens over the next couple of weeks after I get a few more rounds in. I am loving the Cobra Connect feature of the F8 as well.

 

Today was a good day. Old Fashions will be had late into the night. Cheers fellas.

Played 9 last night on a course Ive only played once. It waa more of a meet and greet fir a Wednesdsay night league. My first round in over two weeks thanks to getting sick...stil hanging on. 45 thanks to a triple to start and a double. Other then those two holes I waa pleased. Driving has improved but short game needs work.

Played 18 today as rain is coming back so I put off house painting until tomorrow. Rain started on my approach on 9 then was off and on the next 9. Had to hide under trees a few times. Shot 83 with one OB off the tee. Sometimes I think I forget to swing the dang club and I got lazy and left one out right. Played well but short game again. My new Winn Dri Tacs are wondeful in the rain. Best grip Ive ever used when wet by far. I doubt I get a full year out of a few of them, but thats oksy as I will be sporting new irons come Christmas. Merry Christmas to me.

Good round today. 44 + 40 = 84. It felt much worst however I finished strong with 3 / 3 / 3 par / birdie / birdie ! I won $30.00 in our blitz today at +5 (points) ⛳

Ugh

Played a track I haven't played for years and shot my worst score in recent memory.

46/45 = 91

 

Disclaimer- I injured my right arm/elbow a few days ago in a losing battle with my sewer snake, trying to pull it out of the lateral line. It got a nasty rootball and stuck something serious.

 

I pulled with all my might and did something to my arm. I thought I could play through it, but it affected my swing a bit (whining session over)

 

Anyways, my playing partner whom I'm usually evenly matched with blew out a 75 though, but he was playing good.

 

Anyways, this track is called Rustic Canyon and it was a links style track, and it was beautiful.

The greens were brutal, fast (12+), and heavily undulated. I mean fast, did I say that?

 

Anyways, a tough day for me for sure, but a great track.

I'll be on the shelf for a few weeks at least while my arm comes back to life.

In between jobs and having a week of Funemployment, I just wish the weather was more traditional April weather here in MD. Played the last 2 days and it's bad. Putted well Tuesday and played today on greens that were MUCH quicker and I'm just not used to it. 18 holds later every putt either went 10 feet by or 5 feet short. Made 1 birdie and if I hadn't hit the hole, the ball would still be rolling. 1 more round tomorrow.

This morning was sunny & windy typical FL. 40-43=83. I ran out of gas back 9 and putting was atrocious. I know big word for old guy but the putter was definitely DOA. Always Friday

Seems like my game is starting to turn around. Shot a 82 (40+42) with two doubles. Both of which were caused by blading a wedge over the green and ending up under a tree. Also left a two birdie putts an inch or two short.

 

I don't know what's changed, maybe getting my irons fixed brought some confidence back to the rest of my game. Whatever it is I hope it hangs around for a few more rounds.

 

Going to work on my short game some. The blades were caused by looking up mid swing so at least I can fix that.

 

Hope everyone here is improving as well, it at least is having fun outdoors.

... I love Rustic Canyon although it takes awhile to figure out those greens. And even then, a few of them are very severe, like 13, 15 and 17. 

 

... This should be an eye opener for all of us getting up there in age, especially ex athletes that played thru pain and injury in our youth. I had some shoulder pain in the fall of 2016 and played thru it. Turns out it was a torn labrum and it resulted in a frozen shoulder that took 12 months to overcome. Had I stopped, gone to a Ortho and started rehab immediately it would have been much less severe. NEVER play thru pain after 40. After 60 you are an idiot as my post explains. Lesson learned. Good luck with your recovery!

Played my 3rd round this week and it was by far my best (which isn't saying much) still not used to greens that roll this fast. I only hit a handful of bad shots but got to play with some good company so it was good. 98 today and easily could have been 90 or sub 90. 3 putt bogeys are round killers.

I got out yesterday evening.  Shot 72.  Not bad for the first round of the year.  The new M4 was simply awesome.  Hit one poor shot with it but still made par.  I am really looking forward to Spring and Summer.

Played 36 today.. 8:20 and 12:50. What a day, ended with a 84 and 83. driver felt good as did the putter. Had issues with the longer irons which really screwed me. I was on a nice run in the beginning though where it was driver wedge every hole. Then came the long par 3 anddd no bueno
