How'd you play?

Moved back a set of tees today for this group I play with (back to Men's standard from the Sr tees I prefer to play).  Today showed some progress with the iron striking (swing change).  Still having issues of getting my club head square at impact and getting through the ball with my driver, though.  Probably lost 3 shots due to poor drives on the front nine and then hit a shot over the pond that landed short of the green and rolled back into the pond and, although I hit a decent shot after that, missed the putt and got the double.  Birdied the next hole to shoot a 41 on the front.  Bogeyed our hardest hole on the back and then missed a short putt on the par 3 started me off with 2 over on the back.  A birdie on our hardest par 3 followed by a string of pars until 17 when I went bogey-bogey when I hit my approach shots short, leaving them in a green side bunker and failing to get up and down on the closing holes.  39 on the back for a round of 80.  Team tied for first and I won a gross and a net skin for a $55 payout (less the $20 buy-in).  

Worst part of the "tied for first" team event is that the team that tied us got a blind draw and drew our high handicap player, who, although he didn't play well (96), did help them on enough holes to tie us.  Of course, we all commented about the missed putts that would have sealed the deal...yada yada yada.  Man, I love this game!  🙂

Up and down round today. Ended up with an 89. Just all over the place, and my confidence just off the green is in the garbage right now. Really need to get on the grind on the short game.

Sad day.  😔  Worst round of the year all because of 5 holes.  Shot 89 with 5 triple bogeys!!!!!  Woulda, shoulda, coulda been my best round... 15 shots lost in 5 holes! I drove the ball well; 11/13 fairways.  There were a few squirrely shots here and there, but most of my problems were in bunkers.  Some had no sand in spots, others had lots of fluffy sand, and I didn't adapt well.  But on a good note... my wife shot 84.   🙄

One of the worst things is unpredictable sand! There are a handful of courses I can depend on to have good sand everywhere else forget it lol. Atleast you got the bad round out of the way early? Silver lining

I’m really down in the dumps right now boys.

I posted in here a little while ago about my back going out on me, and how I was looking forward to finally getting back out again on Saturday. After a couple of weeks off, the back felt a lot better last Thursday and Friday but on Saturday morning it was a little stiff, and I had a feeling there might be a problem.

i was dying to play though, and hoped it would loosen up once we started. No such luck. It got worse as the day went on, and if it wasn’t a team game I’d have stopped well before we finished. That night I was back to square one, and the last two days have been more of the same, even though I’m back on the damned muscle relaxants again.

My daughter is getting married in 6 weeks, and I don’t want to walk her down the aisle hunched over like Quasimodo, so I’m thinking that might be it for me until after the wedding. It looks like I’m going to have to get my golf fix meeting up with the guys after they’re done playing to shoot the breeze, and coming here to cheer you fellas on.

Hopefully after all that time off I’ll be good to go, and finally get this season started. Play well men!!!

Sorry to hear that.  The wedding is more important than golf, so take it easy!

Actually, my wedding wasn't any more important than golf.  We rented the golf course for the day; said our vows on the first tee; turned around and teed off; had carts, food and drinks for everyone!!!  Played until we dropped!

We don’t stop playing the game because we get old; we get old because we stop playing the game.”

Take care of the back; golf can wait. I know it is hard, I am in the midst of a doctor Imposed golf timeout and just when I was making good progress on my swing. Getting my fix by practicing my putting and will probably schedule a time with my coach to talk about strategy.

Not as well I would have liked yesterday, but considering I had zero warm-up and had been traveling all weekend I'll take what I can get - 49/46 for a 95 at Hawks Creek with 34 putts.

My game was very up and down - especially on the front nine - but I managed four pars and one birdie. I had three 3-putts on the back nine that were basically just unforced errors. I think I finally got the new putter figured out and just need to give certain putts a bit more attention.

There were so many highlights from the round yesterday:

  1. My wife came with me and rode in the cart.
  2. My playing partner Steve was absolutely amazing. Super nice guy with a solid game who retired from the Air Force after 30 years of service which was just perfect for the course as it sits right next to a Naval Air Base that frequently sends planes up for drills and testing. Yesterday we had the privilege of watching an F35, a small handful of F16s and a C-130!!!
  3. Golf related - Birdie on the Par 5 12th playing into the wind that I somehow managed to navigate almost perfectly, and a near hole-out for birdie on the Par 3 17th after missing right of the green.

An uneventful or inspiring morning. Beautiful weather @ 7:30 but course in terrible shape, greens terrible.
Not sure what I shot probably 6 over for 9 holes.
Switching irons tomorrow, got the Mizzies packed and loaded. Gotta be better.

Played 9 this morning after switching irons, hybrid, driver & putter!!
All my clubs must have known I was upset and behaved and not be banished to the dark corner of the garage..... 3 over with 2 birds. Only a couple bad shots.
Actually all 4 players had good a morning, 6 birds total.

Got the first round in on Monday with [mention=76176]00sportsman[/mention]. Warmed up on the range and was striping the ball. On the course however was a completely different person playing. I wasn't expecting much but it was worse than I thought. No A game or B, C or D for that matter, I think it was my S game.

We'll see what happens tomorrow and Friday.

I had my S games last week

While Matt was playing his S game, I was playing like a Tour Pro...

More specifically, I hit my 3 wood off the tee like Bryson at #4 last weekend, I played out of the sand like Hovland at #9 during the WGC and putted like Sergio from inside 8 feet during the second round of The Player’s.

Shot a very painful 92. This course (Gold Canyon, Dinosaur Mountain) is a beast though and greens were rolling at about a 14, pins were in really tough spots, and NOTHING holds on these greens.

But a pre Birthday round with my pops will never be turned down!
