How'd you play?

Actually played pretty well, shot 75, ball striking was phenomenal, but putting continues to be a weak spot. Four 3-putts today really turned a great scoring day into a solid scoring day. I’m thinking the Betti might need a time-out for a round or 2 😱! Never thought I’d say that!! Either gonna roll with a Ping B60 or an old White Hot #1 that was good to me for a long time.

I'll give putts for bogeys or worse, and even tap-in pars, but birdies or better have to be earned.

Avg age of our groups 73-74 and having a 80 year old forced to putt for a 1’ bogie not going to happen.
There is no money involved, occasionally couple guys may have a side bet then it’s between them.

Same with us buddy and I’m the youngest of the bunch at 69. The majority are in the mid 70’s. In the leather is good with our group except for those with the belly and titty putters.

We do not have any players with the Long putters. Occasionally we’ll get a walk on that will have one. All my putters are 34” no matter style or mfg.

hahahaha

now THAT's funny right there

If no betting involved, yeah, who cares about gimmie putts.  My problem is multiple groups having a money game and side bets with members in different groups and some putts are given wider range than in other groups.  Particularly an "in the leather" (or circle of friendship) that is a sidehill slippery putt.

Played this morning and noticed no Par or Birdie putt given or picked up only Bogie +. Also noticed the Player normally didn’t pick up his ball one of the others in the group kicked it back to him.
Interesting.

Wind blew all day, and rain is starting to come in tonight.  It will be wet tomorrow.

Today my wife and I went out at 1:15 with another couple and played nine holes.  Wind was 15-25mph with some higher gusts.  I played well off the tee, but really sucked around the green.  Shot +6.   Poor chips and a couple of 3 putts.  I never got comfortable standing over the ball.  However, I did have a chip-in birdie on #2.  I was called an a__hole!!  A term of endearment, I'm told.

As good as the chip-in was, my best shot of the day was on the par 3 #4 hole playing 148y to a back pin directly into that wind.  We haven't had winds like that since spring, so I was a little hesitant on which club the use.  I chose a 7i because I thought it would clear the bunker, and I was confident that it wouldn't go off the back.  I hit my version of a "knock-down" shot (think Zach Johnson swing), and it was a laser that stopped pin high right about 8 feet away.  Tricky left to right putt with left to right wind, and I was very happy to 2-putt.

With Nestor blowing thru Tampa Bay last night, it dropped over 3” of rain on the course, causing us to postpone the Fall Blitz until Nov 16 & 17.

73 today 🙂

Driver still excellent- putter very good with 31 putts (best for a long time) and short game was probably 8 out of 10.

The course was soaking- every tee shot and green shot plugged, very heavy underfoot and had to chip out of mud a few times- hate that but we've had all of Oct rainfall in the first 2 weeks so it has nowhere to go.

Overall very pleased with my game. Typical as thats the season over now😡

Tried to play today, but after 3 holes, the hip was twinging too much.  Decided to call it a day and live to play another day.  The course was wet from yesterday and last night's rain with threats of more coming, so it wasn't a bad call to quit.  Came home and iced the hip for a bit.  Also cancelled my game tomorrow.  No sense pushing things.

No need to push it and hurt yourself, always tomorrow.

I’m in the middle of a round in Thousand Oaks, California. It’s right at an hour and 45 minutes to play FIVE HOLES! Dude. PICK. IT. UP!
I’d never play golf if I lived here. What an absolute joke!
