How'd you play?


MmmmmmBuddy

Recommended Posts

Heard its going to be dry tomorrow so planning a roll up game (all comps finished ages ago) plus its dark at 4pm these days. Ground is sodden so course will play longer.

Probably my last game for awhile unfortunately as its cold and rain forecast from Monday onwards.

 

Trying out my 'new' takeaway tomorrow so if it works it will keep me feeling warm and fuzzy all winter😄

Today was extra special. Bright sunshine with a mild breeze and mid-60s temps. We had a noon tee time and I went out and played pretty well.

We finished in about 2 hours, so we played another 18 in 2 hours, 22 minutes and I really lit it up good.

4 hours and 45 minutes for 36 holes for a twosome and we weren’t held up much at all all day. There’s a reason they call my buddy “Flash”.

What a great day!

My wife and I played in our club's annual Turkey Shoot scramble today to support the Union Gospel Mission.  We had to bring a turkey as part of our entry fee.  Sunny and a crisp 40º.  We played with another couple and finished dead last.  There were some big names in the Tri-Cities golf world playing.  Many of the holes had funky things going on.

One hole was Foot Golf set up next to the #10 hole.  We played a scramble with a soccer ball.  Last time I kicked any kind of ball was in high school... 54 years ago!  

One hole we all had to putt with a hockey stick; another hole we all had to putt with a sledge hammer.  I will never putt with the sledge hammer ever again.  That ruined my putting stroke for the rest of the round.  

One hole we had the pick our worst drive.  On another hole our first shot was with a baseball bat and baseball off a T-ball tee.  On our long par 3 hole we had to throw a bowling ball to determine where we would tee off from.  A couple of holes had Turkey cutouts and it was closest to the Turkey; one on a par 3, nowhere near the pin; and the other was on a par 5 for our second shot.  

Everyone had a great time.  My only regret is that I didn't start drinking until our 5th hole.  I should have started at the breakfast buffet!!

Played pretty well with my new takeaway. 

+2 after 9 which include an eagle 3 at the par 5 (great drive, long 4 wood, chip in)

Long game was excellent, chipping vastly improved, putts let me down but overall very happy and good foundation to work on.

Blew the last 2 with OB on both but not disheartened. Shame we now have 5 months of bad winter weather to come. 🙄

77. Played well!!!!! G400 Max was phenomenal: 10/14 fairways! 71%. I love this course, and I never get to play it. I missed three birdie putts inside 10 feet! Made one birdie on a 50+ foot putt. Good day.

Oh yeah... I forgot to mention that on hole #5, a 550y par 5, they had Troy Teal, a World Long Drive competitor who would hit a ball for you for $5 that went to charity.  We paid $20 for our 4 balls, and took the best one; 162y from the green.  Absolutely amazing to watch!!  I had no idea that a 2º driver could launch that high!

Short game was miserable for me as well this weekend. I think I have a technique issue. With the ground starting to soften up, I am going under the ball on those 10-70 yard chip/pitch shots. I try to use the bounce, doesn’t dig deep, but when I try to slide the club under the ball is literally goes under the ball and goes nowhere. All I can say is that it is very frustrating.

I'm glad I'm not alone.  I was getting frustrated at lunch time in that same yardage range.  Those half chips around the greens and I was not happy with the results.  But I'll just take into consideration that the course I was on is a weed factory, and it's soft and muddy from all the rain we've had recently.  And my backup lob wedge is a low bounce 58° Cleveland wedge that works great on hard pan and tight lies.  But you try and hit it in the mushy stuff and the results are very inconsistent.  I can't get too upset with it all because of the conditions.  It's almost to the point where I will pull PW for those sort of shots and just punch and run them all.  I'd probably have better results playing it that way, versus the chunk and mud balls I am currently getting.

I know golf is a relative game, depending on your skill level, but dude, if I had this sort of round I'd be giddy for a week.  Heck, I wish I had your length.  I reach one par 5 in two every 3 months or so, if I hit my driver and 4 wood totally flush and straight, which rarely if ever happens.

I should be excited, however it is hard sometimes when I hit 12 greens and avg 2.00 putts on those holes. Course I played yesterday is not my home course and the par 5's are fairly short. 18 hole is only 465 but plays into wind. Yesterday was no wind and got it to roll over the hill. Had 167 in. Not many courses I play that are driver 7 iron for par 5's.

If your proximity to the hole on those 12 GIR is > 20 feet, then you can't feel too bad about it.  Heck there are days when I hit a lot of greens, but make nothing.  Then I look back and every first putt was like 40-50 feet.  This may sound strange, but in that situation I think I'm better off missing the stupid green.  At least my number of putts go down.  😁

That type of Scramble can be fun once in a while. War Department and I played in one very similar couple years and you had to play Par 3 with Putter off the tee and driver remainder of the hole. We used War Dept drive with the putter then she drained the driver shot for a birdie. No living with her for s couple days.

And this is why looking at and evaluating play via stats is so difficult. You have to know what you are comparing against.

 

I still want to hit greens because my short game results in too many 2 putts. For me missing the green just means I have a short putt for bogey!
