How'd you play?

Recommended Posts

Finally finished off a good start today; made three good pars down 16, 17 and 18 for a 71.

 

 

That should bring the handicap down to 7.8; which once confirmed (come on hcp secretary sort the computer out!) will be my lowest ever handicap.

 

 

Had an awesome day with the short stick as well, 29 putts with the cut down belly (never compromise sub 30 - fitted with fatso grip).

 

 

Treating myself to a large Irish whisky to celebrate.

After taking a 6-7 injury break posted a nice 76 with a new set of irons, Driver and ball.  Maybe I need to take a break more often.......

 I need a break and I'm taking one until Thanksgiving.  Had my college roomates here for a weekend guys things - Of course I wasn't able to play with them until Sunday.  I shot 75 which sounds great but let me tell you I scrambled like you wouldn't believe - got up and down from everywhere and then some - I did somehow manage to hit 11 greens but trust me many of those were not in the same zip code as the pin. 

 

We played again yesterday at TPC Tampa Bay - just the place to play when you're struggling with your swing.  Oh and for kicks God threw in a little breeze of 20 MPH with 25 MPH plus gusts.  I did a nice reprise of the up and down magic but three of the drives that were findable at the course we played on Sunday were only retrievable with Scuba gear on Monday so I shot 81.  If you saw some of the spots I got up and down from or the 5 that I made after snap hooking the ball from the water, having to drop and hit a 5 wood from 200 to an elevated green that's tough to hit with a wedge - It was a piece of work.

 

I just need a break or rather my driver does before it sleeps with the fishes.

 

If anyone is heading down here TPC is in perfect condition right now.

Played an early round today after working until 3 am. Nice smooth 75 in the wind but anytime I can play in temps above 60 * on Long Island in November is a win. Shot of the day was a five iron to a foot on the 220 yard par 3 that juts out into Great South Bay.

Winter golf really kicking in now; dark, wet and cold (not US cold of course!)

 

 

So pretty damn pleased with 72 shots

 

 

As always waiting for the computer to be updated but possibly down to 7.0 ; just holing puts from 5 to 10 feet that I never used to and what a difference 28 or 29 makes to having 37 or 38 which I've been used to throughout my 20 years of golf.

 

 

Highlight came at the last, 25 footer that never looked anywhere else for my only birdie of the day. 3 bogies, 1 birdie and a whole load of pars.

 

 

It's fun on the course at the moment

Took a lesson on Saturday and then played Metrowest on Sunday:

 

10/14 FWY

8/18 GIR

29 putts

39-36=75 (+3)

 

Metrowest really screws me up because they have some odd angles to hit off the tee and for the first 6 holes I hit it worse than I have in the last 2 months.  Had some issues with a low, tumbling draw.  Finally fixed those on #13.  Hit a lot of good irons shots, but my driving was so bad early on that I couldn't hit it very well.  Did hit the driver great off the deck.  Booming one to 20 yards from the green on #7, then a nice one off the deck on #10 and #14.  Putted the best I've putted in a couple of months, so the lesson helped there.

Played Saturday on a soggy course (been raining for a week plus now). Played fairly well. Greens were slow due to being too wet to really cut, but I putted well still. I'm getting the 2-ball dialed in. Had 28 putts that I'm pleased with. Also chipped well with the wedges I built for this time of year (did a Santoku grind to reduce turf interaction). I also have been practicing and using Phil's hinge and hold method for chipping and I'm getting chips in tight now. Had to carry lots of them to the pin or close to it because of conditions and that chipping style works well for me. Shot 80 and I'm not displeased because of the conditions.

Got out on Thanksgiving for some free golf and shot my best round since returning to the game in April, an 88 which included 2 blow up holes and 2 very nice birdies as well as 4 other looks at bird that settled for pars. The 2 brain fart holes killed what could have been a career round. No complaints as I found some missing pieces during the rounds and hopefully can get my back well enough to get back out and bring the scores down even more.

Nice day

78

29 putts

 

I switched to the "claw" putting, and it's really working well for me. Iron play coming back too. Love, love, love the mp 64's.

Haven't played in a month and shot 77 today on a new course. Very nice layout. If I had putted a bit better it could have been a really nice round. I hit 14 fairways and both misses were from not knowing the course. Neither left me in trouble. Played with a guy from Ohio who couldn't seem to grasp the fact that the ball doesn't go as far here. Also he said he hits it around 300. That's good because it means I hit it 300 plus. :)

Played at a very nice country club with some nice ocean views. Some family friends invited me and my dad over. I shot 82 (+12) which was good for me for not practicing and playing that much. I also played with my Bullseye putter for the first time and that will stay in the bag for now. The only complaint about that course was all of the goose crap everywhere.

Played New Years day and walked 36 with new irons in tow. Didn't score particularly well (94/99) but had a ton of positives which easily cancelled out the negatives that cost me the inflated scores. Hit a lot more greens in the second round (99) but was getting yippy with short puts and easily cost me 10 strokes on that round. Fairway wood and hybrid play came back around in a serious way. Jury is still out on the irons as they need another round for a true comparison. Slow play did not help matter either had a really nice rhythm going off each tee but hard to maintain when the group in front has to hit 3-5 shots before they are out of your range and I am a real short hitter.

Played Saturday with my Dad right before he had to go home on Sunday. My Handicap has been trending up. I've been shooting a lot of 75-78's lately. However I had a very solid day going and through 17 holes I was even par with one birdie and one bogie. The last hole at my club is a par 5 so I was hoping to make birdie and shoot my first under par round in a few months. I got on in two and had a slippery down hill 30 footer. My Dad knocked it close in three. He was impatient and while our third was walking to his chip he went ahead and putted and made his birdie. My Dad is a pretty solid 12 and If he'd have beat or tied me on the last hole I would have heard about it until the next time we played so I said "well I guess I'll just have to make this for eagle because I've got to beat the old man!" I made the putt and finished with eagle to shoot -2. The only problem is I think I broke my Dad's heart a little. I really think he was happy for me because I had shot a couple 78's the other times we played and I think he was rooting for me. Dads are great like that. The only thing better than playing with your Dad is playing with your Dad and both of you playing well.

It's all about the short game, unless you can't keep it in play!
