73 (par 73)

9/14 fir

14/18 gir

33 putts

Couldn't make anything and had 2 3 putts but overall hit the ball well. And it is now official I am a scratch golfer! Official index is 0.3 the lowest it has ever been. 

Very nice, congratulations Scratch golfer.👏

Played KickingBird Golf Club in Edmond, OK tonight with two of my sons. 

68

FIR: 4/13

GIR: 12/18

Putts: 27

Had a double bogey 6 on the front but birdied 3 out of the next 5 to get to one under. Had two birdies against one bogey on the back nine. I didn't feel like I actually hit the ball too well but got away with some things. The irons were very solid but the driver was a bit erratic. I also didn't use the best of course management on some holes but all in all not too bad.

91 (46/45) with 36 putts at Wailea GC Emerald. I was a disaster off the tee with my driver except for a 340 yard drive on 9, and could really never capitalize when I was in a decent situation. My putting sucked as well, but it’s all good. Just have to keep working to keep things simple and enjoy the game!

Nine hole walking round today with my regular group on Mondays.  Birdie on #2 and double bogey on #3; rest were pars for a +1 round of 38.  

Best shot was on the par 5 #5 hole; 147y 8i from a downhill lie out of the rough to 15 feet; missed the birdie putt!!  

I also did something on hole #8 that I have never done before from the Blue tees. I hit an iron!! The hole usually plays 180-215y depending on where the pin is located, where they place the tee box, and it usually plays into the prevailing wind.  It's a bugger of a hole for me.  I usually hit a hybrid, but it was a Red flag pin, the tee box was up, and I had a slight tailwind. My GPS said 174y to the front; I hit a 6i to 25 feet, but again missed the birdie putt.

Shot a nice 91 yesterday that matched the 90 degree temps with no wind at all.When I’m swinging well I naturally take a medium to large size divot on my iron shots.The ball will come out lower and really has some sauce when it hits the greens (wedges especially).When I play real bad I have zero divot and the ball flies very poorly. 

Is a divot something I should force.Or just let it happen naturally?And why is it good days I take a natural flush divot

Just let it happen, if it does. For me, when I'm just flushing my irons, I don't take a divot at all...but you should see the carpet rolls when I hit one fat!

Divots just happen based on swing. Don’t force it.

Lots of possible reasons you may get a divot one swing and not the next. Focusing on taking a divot may make you swing steep in an effort to hit down. Everything needs to work together

Back to back 81s this week. 1 birdie each round, 1 double. Not playing enough to do much better, seem to just have a few misfires that lead to bogeys and the one bad hole where my brain gets in the way. Just gonna keep plugging away and enjoy the summer.

Shot a 39 today. Could have easily been a 32. Hit the stick on the 2nd bounce dang near aced it... but my putting woes continue. I’ll make a 19 footer, but miss 3 inside 8’ for birdie... ☹️

Those doubles really sucked.hit something hard on the first one and “Alan’d” one off into some water. The second one I tricked a low cut punch under a tree and hit the next tree as square as you could.

was very hot in Charleston over the weekend but ended up walking 18 holes. Shot a tough 88 (46/42). The 46 on the front was brutal. My hands were slipping on iron shots and causing me to shank a few. Not sure how I still managed a 46... Ended up borrowing a left handed glove (im a lefty & use right handed gloves) for more grip. Got it together and shot 42 to close. Happy to finish strong. I was like Tommy 2 gloves out there.

What course did you play?  I used to live in the area....Goose Creek and then in Mt Pleasant.  Played Crowfield and Snee Farm regularly, as well as a few others.

Wow! For the second time in three weeks, I broke 80 with a 36/43:79! I had 6/14 FIRs , 7/18 GIRs & 30 putts. I started out with 5 Pars, then Bogey, Bogey, Birdie, Par for a smooth 36 on the Front 9. The back side was not as spectacular, shooting a 43: Bogey, 4 Pars, Bogey, Bogey, Double & Bogey. I was making great contact with my Callaway Rogue Driver with the longest drive at 221 yds.

 

BTW, I gamed the Wilson Staff C:25 Golfball ......that’s right! A 3 piece ball that was popular about 7 years ago. I had a dozen, purchased two years ago for $5/dozen..decided to pot them in play before breaking out the new Maxflis. Excellent performance, my golf buddies think it’s an illegal ball....LOL.

14 putts is good.

8 feet is 50/50 on tour. Don't beat yourself up too bad on those.

Putting generally comes in spurts make a bunch miss a bunch.

Tonight was either good or really bad: 4 pars, three triples (ugh), and two bogies. A storm started to roll through as we were finishing. The 17th par 3 was dead into the "freshening" breeze and 18 was straight downwind. See the screen caps below to compare two 7 irons. Both were solid.

We won't talk about the drive that required that long of a second shot when the other three in my group had little chips as second shots. Beyond that drive, I was very happy with driver tonight.

84 (44/40). I was 9 over after 5 holes.......... 3 over the rest of the way with 2 birdies. Chipping cost me all of my strokes!

+6 after 9.Course was busy so I packed it in after 9 since Im walking 18 tomorrow. 

One of them days where I couldnt make 5 footers for par. Hit 3 bunkers wirh only one sand save. Got to the course and realized I left my teeing club (5w) at home. Duh...Had a 3h in my truck and played it.Hit it well but it is shorter then my 5w by 10-15 yards. Good practice though and I hit it well.
