Well, I won the memorial Mixed Best Ball :)

 

LoL, I should say that my partner and I won. Richard's brother, Greg, was my partner. We both played well. I made three natural birdie putts(his approach shots, haha). The putts were 6', 8-10' & the third was about 12'. I'm putting well, and my drives are in the fairways, so I'm having fun, LoL B)

 

I played with the ladies yesterday and had an 82. I need to work on my greenside sand shots. I had 3 and left two in the sand :(

 

Well, I hope you all have fair weather and lots of birdies! :rolleyes:

Finally got a chance to play nine holes today!! The course was in fairly rough shape, wet and the greens were EXTREMELY slow, it was still great to play outside for the first time in months. I managed to make 3 pars and play 2 below my normal handicap, so I definitely feel like the GC2 is improving my game. My iron distances, in particular seem to be spot on with the distances I get at home. Considering I haven't even played this course in 4 years and had trouble finding one of the tee boxes, it was a good day - lol

I actually golfed on Mother's Day, and it was okay. Long story for another time,

Played Tega Cay golf club in SC. I did not have any lost strokes from the tee, which usually means that I will shoot very well,

However, I could not hit anything else, I shot an 89, and I left the course felling like what happened, you should have scored well, , but just didnt do anyhting.I had at least 8 three putts, (haven't counted them all for sure) and about 5 chunked chip shots, pured a drive on 10, left 50 yards over water and hit it about 10, this round could easily been in the 70's. that's the frustrating part, I have practiced and prepared but the wheels came off and dragged my butt around the course all day. I hit 12 fairways for crying out loud, how do you shoot 89 with 12 fairways. And I hit 3 of the par threes is reg. I hate this game sometimes.

Well, I get my driving in line and my putter goes... ;)

 

I had an 82 & an 86 this week-end.

 

I had 4 three putts in the 86 and missed about a 3-4'er and a 5'er.

 

I should make at least one of those!

 

Oh well, it's off to the practice green tonight.

 

Have a great week guys!!

I've been able to play 9 holes each on 2 different days this week and all things considered, my game from 50 yards to the green and especially bunker play around the green absolutely sucks... As for putting, I'm usually online but distance control is off, but considering the conditions of the greens right now, that's not a big surprise, either. It was getting better the last 3-4 holes of each round, so that should come along with some more practice. I feel confident with every club in my bag and my short game woes are definitely "the carpenter, not the tools," right now. I've got 5 more days before my league starts, so I just need to spend some time in "the sandbox" and chipping so I striking the ball and quit "flipping" and scooping...

 

One round was truly practice, no score and I played multiple balls and repeated some shots since I pretty much had the course to myself, in the other round I still managed to shoot 42, which is great for me this early in the year, since I'm carrying over a 17.3 hd from last season :D

 

It's just GREAT finally being able to play OUTSIDE!

Played in a KC Cup match yesterday and felt good to win again. My game was pretty sketchy, especially early but my partner carried me for the first 6 holes and then I decided to play a bit and helped close them out, had them dormy on 14 and finished them on 15. I had some very odd severe blocks to the right with the driver, it happened 3 times yesterday, it was almost like a driver shank but with really good contact, one of them was WAY right, the others stayed in play, not sure what all that is about but I wouldn't be upset if it just goes away without further investigation!

After 5 bad rounds in a row, finally had a decent round (for me), a 44/41 85 on the TPC Valley Course. Typical to my streaky play of late, I was only 4 over par on the 12 beginning and finishing holes (no birdies), but 9 over par on the middle 6 holes. But the big, big thing today was that I went back to my old putter, an Odyssey Whitehot blade type putter that's about 8 years old, ditching the Odyssey two ball that had been causing me fits for the last 6 months. 27 Putts, versus my usual 32 to 36 putts!. Several 10 to 20 footers MADE, which have been so rare of late, and NO short putts missed, which have been so common of late. Took me 2 holes to adjust to the different weight (our practice greens are still either closed or being rebuilt--4 weeks now of no putting practice). Ten 1 putts and only one 3 putt (one of the early adjustment holes). Still can't conquer hole 6 (the Valley Course's evil reverse twin of the Stadium's 18). Near as I can figure, I've double bogied the hole 11 out of the last 12 times I've played it. It's a dog leg right, with water all the way down the right (it really is the opposite of Stadium 18). Usually I pull the drive hard left into the really high mounds, leaving an extreme uphill/downhill sidehill shot out of deep rough from 180 plus with the water still right. Results are predictable, even layups from those lies are problematic. Today, trying ever so hard not to pull left, I creamed it, but with a slight fade that almost hit a hazard stake and took a cruel bounce right into the water. Next shot, bad, pushed right into water. Walked 10 yards up, dropped again, stuck an 8 iron to 3 feet and one-putted for my ......6. Oh well, I've tried every strategy to play the hole, but it just sets up bad for me off the tee.

Nonchalant putts count the same as chalant putts.

Took the afternoon off work to play with some retired buddies and got to the course early enough to practice about 30 minutes on the chipping area before we tee'd off. Happy, happy, happy! Felt confident off the tee and hit 5 GIR, NO 3 putts, nothing over bogey and, while I still have a lot of work to do, got my chips on the green even if they left me with a long first putt. I just tried to stay relaxed and not play outside of my capabilities and it paid off.

 

For the first official 18 holes of the season, I shot below my handicap! :D

I played 36 holes yesterday and it was just atrocious. I didn't expect to shoot 75 but didn't expect 93 either!?!? Hit the driver fairly well, chipped decently. Irons were as bad as I have ever hit them and putter was very inconsistent as well. I hit 4/18 greens and only 3/14 fairways but my misses with driver weren't too far from the short grass. The 2nd round is fuzzy after I started having beers to numb the pain. I still played horrible but it didn't sting quite as bad. I have some range work and a visit to my instructor in order...

Today, shot an 80 with 5 birdies on the round. Played in a twosome and was stuck behind a foursome all day long(they were having senior day today and they're we're 8 groups of 4 that went off in front of us, with a hole each between them). We got to the turn and went inside and I ordered a burger, which took 20 minutes to come out and then another 7 or 8 to eat. Started back on #10 and had caught that foursome by #14. I can't play slow and my birdies came on 11, 12, 13, 14 and 16. Regardless it's better than I've been playing lately but not by much. Still struggling to hit players cavities it seems.

Had a very similar round recently; had 5 birdies and shot 83 (+11). I had the opposite problem though, the guys I was playing with had to go to work, so we were playing speed golf. One of these days I'll get to play at a good pace and put up a good score.

I hear that. I'm not a speed golfer, but I like to play at a good pace where I can get in a rhythm. Those days where you hit it, wait 10 mins, hit it again, putt putt, wait again kill me.

Played TPC Valley on Friday with regular group and shot an 83 with 35 putts. Hit 8 Fairways, 7 greens, and had 1 birdie. we got out early and played behind a slow group that picked up the pace at the turn and we finished in about 4 hours. Nothing special, but after pulling my tee shot in the water on the par 4 #13, I had about 200 to the green with a sidehill lie. Smashed a 3 hybrid on the green to about 20 feet. Missed the putt, but did get down in two. Have put my R9 in storage and still working thru getting used to RBZ driver. Until recently have carried both drivers but am hitting it consistently enough to leave it in the bag. During lunch after the round we settled our bets and I won a dollar, so the water is on me.

Think this is the worst 72 I have ever shot. Just 5 fairways all day but somehow managed to hit 14 greens. Then two putted pretty much everything I had 37 putts. Never disappointed in shooting 72 but with the way I struck my irons I feel like I should have shot 5 shots better Not a bad round though for just my 3rd round of the year but Im blaming the putting on the aerated greens.

Played yesterday at Fox Den in Stow, Ohio. Shot a 93, which I'm not disappointed in...I got my irons dialed in fairly well as the round progressed, but I need to keep my head down with my driver and hybrids. All in all, not a bad day.

Escaped with an 89 at Hidden Valley Golf Club (2011 National Golf Course of the Year) ... www.hiddenvalleygolf.com.

 

Great course, some tough holes, but definitely playable for a wide range of golfers.
