How'd you play?

Recommended Posts

Strange morning, hit some really good shots and some pretty poor ones also. 44 which at this point is all I can expect. Still only 9 but I’m ready to start 18 next week. Putting was lights out.
Supposed to get some rain, yuck

Yes sir.  About a 5 minute drive from work so it's great for an evening range session or to squeeze in a quick 9.

Time to get away from the range!

Early to rise round today, I hit the first tee at 6:19 AM. I did consume large amounts of coffee first!

This was my first full round in over three weeks.  I overcame a fairly. strong muscle pull that took weeks to settle down and, in terms of my golf, a fully new approach to my 6i, as I bored many of you with too much detail!

Course is rated 65/105, 5300 yards played from the senior tees. Par is 72 My HCP remains a 18.

This course has a bit of lack of forgiveness due to the fairly narrow width of its fairways. 25% were FIR but I hit 3 OB off of drives. 

I should have add this to make it clear. OBs are tight on this course and none was out by more than 1 foot. So OB. but not lost, only lost shots on the card. I play a red ball so readily seen in the primarily dirt OB.

 Damned "lucky" I know.  One hit a tree and almost came back in. I readily could have been dishonest and played the OB with am sneaky foot wedge and pretended they were not OB; but I play too damned honest of a game. All 3 were significantly longer than "hitting 3". All 3 went out left and were the result of my poorly aimed feet.

I landed in sand on 6 holes, mainly from not playing the course well in terms of planning. I could have gone for a lay up on 4 of them by playing a different club.  The remaining shots did well and made for easy carry to green or near green. I thought I chose a correct lay up approach on the "lay it up" shots, only to have a different carry than I expected.

Putting made up for less than wonderful results getting to the green. 32 total with 6 one putts, 2 three putts (with both including a rim out), and the rest 2 Putts. 32 putts in total and this included a high for me in 1 putts.

I tried my best not to force my play by over hitting the clubs. In that area, it felt good.

 But I did not "play" the course very well, especially on the two most pronounced dog legs, and there was a bit of marching in my round ("left, right, left, right").

All in all my 94 fit good after my lay off.  I finished the round before the temp hit 90º and, I played the round using the same ball, first time this year.  I did hit a ball into the water by about 1/4" but I played it out of the wet and almost greened it from 160 yards out! That was my best, or best unexpected shot, of the day.

Allie and I finished second in our flight today at the First Tee 2-Person tournament, and she was the youngest person in our flight by about 20 years.

Not going hole by hole, but got out for an impromptu 18 hole round this morning.  Must of been still asleep because I couldn't hit an approach shot to save my life🤦‍♂️. Couple that with a bulky putter and that resulted in a 91 with a three hole stretch where I went double, double, double😡🤬.  Went to the practice green a couple of hours later and low and behold, chips had came back with great distance control (even hold out a few with the Cleveland RTX 4 wedges I'm testing),  putts were dropping left and right and I'm left scratching my head trying to figure out what went wrong this AM...

Just shot a 54 on the front, and a 38 on the back.

Back 9 was the best golf I have ever put together. Maybe not the best score, but the best I’ve ever played.

Hit the flagstick from 133 with a 9 iron on a par 3, it went straight down and bounded out of the hole!!!

All while using a Callaway Superhot 55 ball I found on the 7th hole.

A double, bogey, bogey finishing 9 with 15mph winds ruined a record day...

But man, what can I say it was amazing.

That’s cool! Days like today are what makes you keep coming back

- 43/40 = 83 (+11)  

- 5/15 FIR  

- 8/18 GIR (0 birdies)

- 37 Putts (4 3-putts, 12 2-putts, 1 1-putt, 1 0-putt) 

- 2:45 Round Time

One of those rounds where I honestly lost track of the score and was surprised once The Grint app added it all up. It was a very shaky day from 125 and in. Left approaches short of the green on several holes. Putting was not good. 

Irons were easily the best part of my game today, long irons especially, so that was today's saving grace. It's been a while since I was happy with my iron play after a round.

Highlight of the round was hole No. 3, a 525-yard par 5. I smashed my drive 264 yards in the center of the fairway, and hit a great six iron 60 yards short of the green with a perfect view of the pin on the middle back upslope. Grabbed my 54 degree wedge, dropped the ball about 20 feet short of the pin, it took a big hop and the rolled up and in for eagle! Not my first eagle, but it was my first ever eagle from the fairway. Very awesome feeling.

Good for you!!

Also, drove by Western Greens and saw you've played a few rounds there on The Grint. How do you like it? Those rates are dirt cheap, definitely have me interested in trying them out

Played Kickingbird today with a heat index of 112 and humidity set on hell. I struggled on the front - bogeyed 7 and doubled 8. On seven I came up short on my approach and my ball came up to the collar of the bunker - I had to turn the club up on its toe and chip across my feet. Hit it well but no ability to hit it at the hole or get it close - two-putt bogey. Hit my second shot into the water on 8 and played my fourth from the drop area - almost holed it out for a four but it rolled to about 12 feet and I two-putted for double. Birdied 9 to shoot 2 over on the front. Shot 32 (3 birdies/ no bogeys) on the back for a 69. Felt mostly hard today except for 2 3/4 pitching wedges for birdies on the back - one from 98, the other from 102 - the Blueprint PW is so, so good.

Played again last night - but only because my wife wanted to go out and practice - she has a club event coming up on Tuesday. I think my back muscle issue has worked it's way out but I was being overly cautious so I was not hitting the ball long and not rotating at the finish. Going to give those back muscles a bit more time to heal. 

Take it easy!!  Don't rush a bad back.

Best of luck for your wife tomorrow!!!!

The owner is working really hard on improving the course. It's old (1960s) and was not maintained terribly well until recently. Drainage is the main issue, but once July hit the course really improved. I've grown to like it a lot because there are a few holes that can be really challenging.

If you are accurate with your driver, most holes will be driver, wedge as it's not long from the back tees (6,300ish yards).

I'd put it in the middle tier of courses that I've played around GR. Falls at BC, The Links at Bowen Lake, Meadows, Saskatoon, Diamond Springs, Pigeon Creek are all in better shape and better courses. But it's definitely better than say, Gracewil, the Pheasant in Borculo, Lincoln CC and Morrison Lake in my opinion. Easily worth the money.

It's all tree-lined and will punish people who don't hit it straight. During busy times play can get pretty slow as a result.

Thanks for the insight, I'll definitely check it out before the end of the season!
