How'd you play?

Recommended Posts

I played like a golfer - 34–38 72.

Being able to hit it 230 instead of 215 makes a huge difference.

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.

temperatures are freezing at night.

frost delays in the mornings and temps around 0 deg C till about 10 am when it starts warming up.  the tee times starting at about 11 am. gets dark at 6:15. Doesn't make sense now to fully staff the course for the short hours. This course does shotgun starts during this time of the season

my home course is closing on Tuesday.

We've had frosts here, but not that bad.  Now that you mention it, I do recall Old Works saying they close on Halloween.  Time to head south. 🏜️

Beautiful courses up there Har, and great round. One of these days I gotta get up that way. The wife's been talking about it, as we'd rather head that way than Florida for a vacation, especially in the summer. Congrats!

Journeyed up to Cincinnati for my son's wedding this past weekend.  Got to play a round with my son and a couple of his groomsmen on Friday.  Played a municipal course called "Blue Ash Golf Club".  Have to say it was one of the most impressive golf courses and clubhouses for a Muni I've ever played.  Great condition, very interesting design, and the hills and slopes were very challenging to one accustomed to Florida Flat.  Only negative was lack of a driving range.

Just got 3 rounds in at Palm Desert Country Club while the wife went to a business conference. Shot well,  but it got really hot- like low 90’s..

met some cool people.

could have really scored but putting was tough, because the greens were just reseeded and they were slower than molasses.

driver was stoopid long and accurate, I don’t really know why

Did they still have the rough grown really thick? Played there a few weeks ago and felt like I was preparing for the US Open in that rough. It's a beautiful and challenging course though.

Played at one of my favorite courses today, Legendary Run in Cincinnati. Sucked it up on the front 9 but had 3 birdies on the back 9 for an unimpressive 84.

I had the course all to myself today because it was raining pretty hard. I ended up shooting 77. 

40-37-77 (+5)

FIR 6/14

GIR 13/18

Putts 15-17-32

I am starting to feel the game coming around but I need to get out of my head while putting. I am swinging too hard with the driver and need to layoff a bit for better strikes. Once I implement these changes, the game should be really good.

Shot a decent game today, and had 3 birds to make a decent score. Funny how the birdies do that.

Haven’t posted here for a while because injuries have been tough last 3 weeks.
Played Bacon Boys Exec 9 this morning with 70’ and overcast.
Played pretty decent had 2 birds and 2 bogies for even.
I’m not playing with anything over a 5 iron so the 2 par 4’s were a bit of a challenge, parred one bogies the other. Maybe I’m on to something. Anyway somewhat pain free when not trying to play the long sticks.

They have big patches of foot long grass not far off the fairway on a number of holes.  None of us who hit in those patches were able to even find the balls.  Rest of rough was just average.

Stay loose out there Rick! Even is an awesome score and I'm glad that you've found what sounds like a good combo to stay in the game during the recoup effort. Take 'er easy Bud!

My only round last weekend got off to an inauspicious start. First I had it in my head that our tee time was right at noon. I was mistaken since it was actually noon + 58-minutes...so I wound up showing up nearly 2-hours early. So I decided to take advantage of the time and do some drills on the range and work on my bump-n-run shots to the green. After my standard warm up working my way up the bag, my drills were to play the rest of the large bucket as if I was out on the course. Good drives, decent iron shots and solid feeling pitches & chips. Felt really solid. Then moved over to the practice green and did that bump & run stuff using my 50* & 54* wedges and had success with both. I'd hit 4 shots to my target pin then walk up and try to putt them in. Putting was on point.

As the real tee time approached, my playing partner was no where to be found. After several texts he admitted he'd just woken up and finally showed up 25-minutes late. My back-n-forth with the starter was getting old, but we finally were able to wiggle in with another 2-some.

Proceeded to play like a**! Just a jerk all the way around. Couldn't drive for beans and iron play was crap. Even my reliable wedges were void. Obviously I shot my wad during my practice sessions and nothing translated over to the real game. I was very upset most of the round and simply couldn't find a shot for s***. Complete write-off.🤬

The stress of waiting for your partner and then getting “fit in” can’t help either.
