How'd you play?

Played only Front 9 with the Monday group. First hole a nightmare, brand new Callaway into the swamp. Settled down after that for an unsmooth 43.
First outing with the Cobra F8 Driver. I think it’s pushed the Ping G out for now. Appropriate same distance but more predictable.

88 at La Cantera Palmer Course. Man, this course just takes a toll on a golfer playing it for the first time. There are 6 or 7 completely blind tee shots, four of them to start the back nine, and for one who’s never played it before, it was rough. I hit 67% of fairways, though, but it seemed like EVERY single shot from the fairway was a side-hill lie. Ball below the feet most of the time.... So, with a guy struggling with his iron play to start with, it probably wasn’t a great venue for me to play today. Frustrating. I only hit FOUR greens. That’s shi—y!!!!

Shot a 37 over 9 holes (par 29) at Little Harbor CC in Wareham, MA. Got out with my dad, son, and my brother who’s visiting from Arkansas. 3 pars and 2.1 putts per hole on very slow and fuzzy greens.

So I played Friday night and Saturday afternoon. My home club at Hartford (9 holes only) and then my closest club to home Vale Royal Abbey Golf Club (full 18).

On Friday; I played really well for me. Managed to go pretty low for my handicap and went 9 over - thankfully  with a birdie on the par 4 final hole. Greens were smooth and quick - but not the quickest. 

Saturday; I played at my favourite local course at Vale Royal Abbey. Green were the quickest I've ever played - you could easily tap a putt and miss by 5/6 feet if you got the read wrong. Played the front 9 really well (8 over) and then crashed and burned on the back 9 with 22 over, which bummed me out a bit. But at the moment i've really struggling with my sinuses and felt groggy the whole way round. 

But the biggest positive so far for me is that I'm playing generally better golf and trying different options more and learning a lot mroe about my swing. Since 07/07 to yesterday I've taken my handicap from 32.3 to 25.5 over 4 rounds - hopefully things are going to keep going 🙂

I've attached a few pictures from the two courses. First lot from Hartford and the rest from Vale Royal.

Played in a real small church scramble and we shot a -5 65. Didn’t win, but didn’t finish last either. Winner was -16. But did have a weird swing experience. I hurt my shoulder some how and couldn’t get the club past 3/4. So the only way I could hit the ball was forgetting hands and arms (which Is how I swing) . And focus on the body swinging the club. Meaning turning big on the way back and way thru. And letting the body hit the ball. I hit the ball excellent. The ball flew lower with a running draw. Maybe it was a fluke , not sure. But it worked

Took the day off from work today, and along with my brother-in-law, went up to The Links at Bowen Lake in Gowen, Michigan. Quite a drive for us, but what an awesome course and a steal of a deal on Tuesdays. We managed to play a full 36 holes and grab a quick lunch in less than nine hours.

Only $54 for 36 holes with cart, a small range bucket, five hot dogs and two 20 ounce Diet Pepsis. Incredible price for a fantastic course with bentgrass tees, fairways and greens. Well worth $45/18, let alone $25!

Played the middle tees, par 71, 6,239 yards.

Round 1 

- 48/42 = 90 (+19) 

- 7/14 FIR 

- 9/18 GIR 

- 37 Putts (3 3-putts, 13 2-putts, 2 1-putts)

We started both rounds on the back, so the scores are reflective of that.

I struggled with hooking my driver, which led to a quadruple bogey and triple bogey after hitting balls out of bounds left. If only I could have kept them in the fairway the score could have been much better.

I'm typically a two-putt per hole type of player. I'm not used to firm greens, so I anticipated there would be a few three putts. Not upset about the way I putted considering I didn't give myself a whole lot of close looks for birdies or pars.

Round 2

- 47/45 = 92 (+21)

- 5/14 FIR 

- 5/18 GIR 

- 38 Putts (4 3-putts, 12 2-putts, 2 1-putts)

Round two started in a steady drizzle for the first hole and a half. I got off to a bad start. After hitting a good drive in the fairway on No. 10 (par 5 starting hole), I hit a very poor 5 iron, and then shanked a 54 degree wedge hard right from 90 yards away. Followed it with a duffed chip and my second round started with an awful triple bogey.

Couldn't get the driver to cooperate at all, lost a lot of balls right, I assume from trying to overcorrect from my earlier hooks. Oh well.

Struck several good middle irons, easily the highlight of my day. Putting was average, just like the first 18 holes.

Remarkably consistent! Was an awesome day. I've scored better, but I had a lot of fun and realistically, I am overall happy with the way I played. I just wish I could get some consistency with the driver. I know my scores would go down significantly if I could.

I needed a “plain Jane” course in the worst way today, and I got it! Olmos Basin is one of a group of Municipal courses in San Antonio, and a friend recommended it to me. It was a fun track, but relatively flat, and no hidden fairways! I needed a boost of confidence, and a place I could just relax and play. Here are my score, and stats. I should’ve had three more birdies, but I’m happy to be in the 70s again. Playing Barton Creek tomorrow.

Sometimes we need an easy track once in awhile so we don't think too much.  😀

League match last night:

6 FW, 5 greens, 17 putts for a 43.

Round went pretty well at the beginning. Bogey on the first after blading second shot and leaving the par putt on the edge of the hole. Putter went cold and the bogey train started on 6 with 3 putt bogeys on 6 and 7. Fried egg lie on 7 led to a third straight bogey. 9th hole was an adventure; middle of the fairway off the tee, shanked second behind a pump house, pitched past the trees to have a shot at the green, hit into green side bunker, bunker shot gets hung up in fringe, chipped on and buried the putt for a triple.

Except for 9 I am pretty happy with how I played. Need to get past the thinned shots early in the round which has plagued me recently. The second 3 putt was partially caused by my getting distracted by my playing partner. As I am lining up he pulled the flag, I told him to put it back, he the attempted to adjust the flag several times to try and make it “stand straight and not lean”. The hole was on a slope it was going to lean. Should have stepped back and reset but I missed low.

Played OK in league last night. Pretty happy with the score (+6), but wasn't particularly sharp with my irons or chipping. I drove the ball really well (for me) on the first 4 driving holes, but hit some pretty weak flares to the right on the last three. I'm not sure what happened, but I think I was getting tired and couldn't finish the swing - it was a really hot and humid night to be walking on a decently hilly course. Biggest score was a double on a par 3 - tee shot nestled up against a tree behind the green, was able to hack it out but ran through the green and down a hill about 20 yards.

4 FIR, 3 GIR, 17 putts

EDIT: I had what appears to be an other-wordly 3H as my second shot on a par 5.... What you don't see is the fairway slopes down toward the green starting about 20-30 yards before the bunkers in front. The shot took a HUGE bounce and had to have rolled about about 40-50 yards. I wasn't actually in the bunker, but I was almost standing in it - off I go to fix that in ShotScope.

I have a similar tendency to blade ball early; don't stay down through the shot.  I just need to spend more time stretching before I play.

Isn't it amazing how a shank from a very nice lie puts the ball in the worse possible place on the hole??  

You will turn it around... we are all counting on you!!!  😀

Played 9 this morning, hot & humid!
Same as Monday 1st Tee shot a real skanker but managed a bogey. Had a few decent drives that made the F8 more of a keeper. Irons just blah, can’t keep my fat butt down and hit the call in the forehead.
I was on top of my game at breakfast

I have a separate thread about it, but thought I'd share the scores here too. Played my first individual strokeplay event (36 holes) this past weekend and shot 82/85. I also shot an 82 in my practice round. My goal was to break 80, but a few mental mistakes and some serious putting woes (not caused by the greens) held me back. If I had simply putted to my average (1.82 putts per hole) I would have shot 77/83 😞 😞 😞 

Had a fun time though and still hit plenty of good shots. Better luck next time...
