Today was a good day.  First hole in one ever.  50° Cobra King wedge from 120 yards.  Hit just past the hole and spun back in. Shot 73 to tie my lowest round ever. Won my match 8 and 6

****Alert ***** Alert!******Alert!****** sluggo shoots a new PB today !!!!!!!!!!!   -4.......    67. .......    -4. .....    67!   ..... It was a Great day to say the least, and the o

80 today -- no fanfare --- just 8 bogeys and the rest pars.  Missed a couple of putts that made the difference between shooting 80 and in the 70s.  Posted the score and it knocked a 74 off the group, so my handicap jumped up a stroke -- which is a good thing as we'll be freezing handicaps at the end of the month until March.

One of my most solid rounds of the year. Missed fairways were by about 2 yards, all of them. Missed greens were left in great positions except 1 and I hit great flop to 2 feet. Played par 4’s in 3 under, par 5’s in 2 under. My 2 bogeys were on holes I normally bogey. 205 yard par 3 that has a green sloped like a mountain and 221 yard par 3 that I missed 8 footer on. Overall extremely pleased.

WOW!  Great round dude... that is awesome.

@pulledabill Well, we're playing winter rules and, in my opinion, if you're bumping the ball, you shouldn't post .... but I'm playing games with others doing it, so I'm not going to handicap myself by playing it down.

New handicap system goes into effect Jan 1 ... wondering what the OGA is going to do.  Previously, they used to keep 2 lowest tournament scores for a year (assuming lower than the other 10).  With new rules being worldwide, guess that's got to change.  You hear anything on that with OGA?

I have not seen or heard anything.  I work about a half mile from OGA Headquarters.  I will stop in tomorrow and see if they have anything on it.

If the course uses local rule for preferred lies you should post. Our course plays winter rules all winter. But like you if everyone is doing it I am going to do it also. 

Within each section, all defined terms are in italics and are listed alphabetically in Section 2 - Definitions.

7-1. Acceptability of Scores When Playing Preferred Lies

Scores made when a Local Rule for preferred lies (winter rules,) is in effect must be posted for handicap purposes unless the Committee (preferably the Handicap Committee in consultation with the Committee in charge of the course) determines that course conditions are so poor that such scores are not acceptable and should not be posted. Individual players playing the course do not independently decide whether scores are acceptable because of the conditions. If an individual decides to apply some form of this Local Rule, and the Committee has not invoked such a rule, the player's score is acceptable and must be posted for handicap purposes.

Yes, I understand, and I do post every round that I play during our posting season.  My point is that the course should continue to play summer rules as long as possible, unless conditions warrant otherwise.  Case in point is this year.  Our weather has been beautiful and, with the exception of leaves falling, the course is in every bit as good of shape as it is in September, yet our course went to winter rules based on a calendar rather than conditions.  They do the same thing come spring and continue to play preferred lies far too long (in my opinion, which holds very little value in the grand scheme of things).

But, I digress.....back to our regular channel....How'd you play today?

Rushed out of work to get as many holes possible as rain is coming. 15 minutes from work and realized I had some keys I had to take back.Turned around and back to work. Dropped keys off and took a different route home only to find the on ramp closed. Back to original route and finally made the course thinking on 5-6 holes. 

Teed off dead in to the sun and never saw it.  Felt like I tugged it and sure enough I found it under the trees left side. Bogey on an easy par 5. Settled down and was +2 after 8 thanks to a birdie on #8 then doubled #9. My worst hole on my course. Its generally a short iron in but the steep slope and creek behind begs me to take 1 less club. Then I end up backing it off the sloped green.

Ive been really focusing on getting more aggressive with short irons but this hole is in my head and my playing partners can see it. Dont think Ive been in that creek but once in two years.

Oh in that case I agree with you 100%. Our members have decided that winter rules will be in affect on the calendar even though it’s 80 and we haven’t had rain all year.

First time I have shot in the 60’s in back to back rounds and it was on 2 different course. This game is a blast sometimes. The 2 fairways I missed, I made birdie. Hit the best 5w of my life from 233 to 5 feet, made the eagle. Unfortunately it will be another week before I play again. 


Another great round - good stuff. Mighty solid.

Was lucky enough to play with a customer down in San Antonio where it was 80* and sunny.  Haven't played much of any golf the past 3 months, but was able to really hit the ball well and was consistent all day.  Shot 3 over at The Quarry golf course, which was in good shape for this time of year.  And lucky for me the greens had just been overseeded or else they would have been much much faster.

OK finally a decent enough round... After making incremental but steady progress through the summer, to where I had a few 9 hole rounds of 43 and two 18 hole rounds of 92 and 90, I totally reversed course and was getting further and further away from that very elusive "Breaking 90" thing.

Played 9 yesterday (possibly last warm day for a while .. some of that white s*** fell outta the sky here today...) and while I didn't make any new records I generally hit the ball solidly with far fewer mistakes vs recently. Putting was a bit off as I seemed to make several mis-reads.

So after an... 
.. opening double (left a short approach in the bunker); 
.. two nice pars back to back (145 yd Par 3 to the upper-back of a two-tiered green; then a double dogleg Par 5 with a solid drive that carried to the far side of the dogleg left and into the right rough then an 8i to lay up and a 9i to about 15-20 feet below the pin); 
.. another double (pulled approach left and thinned the pitch on which ran thru the green); 
.. and then a few bogeys; 
.. so I was in good shape (bogey average) going into the last hole (#18, we played the Back 9)..

..which is a hole I really wanted to play well. You tee off looking at the crest of a hill which turns left and runs steeply downhill towards the clubhouse; the fairway stops at the bottom of the hill then there's thick and wet rough, and then a large oval-shaped bunker fronting the sort of oval-shaped green.

So the trick is to catch the crest with your tee shot and get your ball to run downhill. My drive carried far enough but I hit it to the right of the "line" and ended up in the far right corner of the dogleg left... Had a decent enough lie but was still about 175-180 out from pin in the back-right corner. I'm not typically a go-for-it golfer (since I'm trying to play for bogey) but looking down I didn't see a lot of good bailout/layup spots from where I was. Well, you know what happens next -- boom. Double.

But overall an ok round and feel like I'm making forward progress again. Planning to take more lessons - and practice even more - over the winter!!

 

Oh, PS:
+10 but still 10 (TEN!) strokes better vs the last time on that Back 9!
