How'd you play?

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I walked 36 8:50 and 220 times. So grabbed some lunch in between. Wasn't warned of how the body would feel and ooooo boy. I went 80-86 and the 86 was a struggle the entire way through. Everything hurt towards the end and was very excited for the round to be over with. I have a 54 hole

Tournament in June that's walk ride walk and not sure I'm doing it now

Funny you say this. I was thinking about trying to play 36 (possibly 45) one day this week. Going to get a day or two of good, hard practice in then blow it out with a marathon day.

 

Wanted to play 18 from the Blues (my normal tees at 6400) and another 18 at the Tips (6700). Then could possibly get scheduled for a league match to make 45. All walking.

 

 

In case you can't tell, I'm sick in the head and like to punish myself. This is the only real exercise I get and, by golly, I'm gonna get exercise out of it.

I walked 36 2 weeks ago, 10am and 3pm tee off- My feet and body have taken a week to recover- last 9 were a slog but the swing was a thing of beauty - if you class an old guy just barely lifting the club while making weird noises a thing of beauty - ;)

 

36 is fine with a cart these days

Played yesterday at Racoon Hills in Kent. Bad front 9 with an even 50 but a solidish back 9 with a 44. Putting was terrible with a total putts the same as my back 9 score.  :o  The Cleveland SmartSole S saved my arse twice from the sand...that thing is just money.

Were you trying to hit the clubhouse on 18?

 

FWIW, I have hit it before and promptly blamed my playing partner.

Not on purpose...just pulled it. It was well struck, just a lot off line.

My wife and I played Saturday with the service manager and his boss at my Dodge dealer.  After my horrible play a week ago, my short game showed up again and shot 79 with a triple on a par 5... dang tree limb!!

 

On Sunday we played with two ladies from the club who's husbands were unavailable.  One left at zero dark thirty for Virginia, and the other had surgery last Thursday.  So, I was the token male of the group.  I played OK, but not great; shot 82.  It could have been worse, but my putting and my new Callaway Sure-Out sand wedge saved some errant approach shots.  It really is amazing that when you have no fear of hitting out of a bunker, shots out of that bunker become much easier.  The Sure-Out is the best club I have added to my bag in the past 10 years.

... 79 with a triple, nice job! Nothing more frustrating than a bogie on a par 5, unless of course it is a triple bogie! My son almost reached a 535 yd par 5 with driver 5 iron and was about 5yds short of the green. But he got greedy and went at a back pin running it thru the green and into very deep rough. He had a very fast downhill chip and babied it leaving it just on the fringe. So he took his medicine and hit a good chip that rolled 15 feet past the hole. Misjudged the speed back up the hill and left it 5 feet short. Lipped out that putt and it viciously slung back down the hill for another 5 footer that he lipped out on the other side and then tapped in for a triple bogie. 530yds in two and 30 yds in 6 strokes. That really smarts. 

 

... I had a similar 3rd shot about 10 yds short of the same green after hitting a 4 wood and left my pitch a good 10 feet below the hole. Left my birdie putt a few inches short and tapped in for my par. Greens had been cut and rolled that morning so quite fast downhill and a hair slow uphill. Course management meant a par instead of a birdie because being aggressive and rolling it past that hole by a few feet meant I would have to just put the ball in motion back downhill and there was a good chance it could wander off line. He is learning there are pins you can attack and others it is much better to be 10 feet below the hole than 3 feet above it. Or avoid tree limbs and take your medicine just punching out. ;)

81 this morning with 2 doubles. Couldn't putt. Found out that my Odyssey 7 Oworks Face is damaged. 2 of those little hinges were bend out at 90*, facing straight out. Pushed them back as best I could with a tee and rolling a ball back and forth across the face . I'm not happy with that design, seems fragile.

Yea a friend of mine who works in the golf department at Dicks had the mesh tear and they sent him a brand new putter too.  It seems there was a lot of problems with that particular model.  Heck I have one too however mine has not broke loose yet. 

 

Good luck!
