How'd you play?

Recommended Posts

It was beautiful today - nearly 70 and I played for the first time in almost two weeks. My back has been really bad but I felt great today. I had no idea what to expect but I hit the ball quite well and I was able to put together a good round. I was striking the ball really well right off the bat but I wasn't making many putts on the front. On the back nine I got tired and wasn't hitting quite as well but I made more putts. Best shot of the day was 2 Crossover. Par 3 9th hole - 197 but was into the wind and playing 217. It's hard to see in the picture but the ball is 3 paces behind the flag and the pitch mark is pin-high right about four feet. So happy with that shot.

The other shot that made me happy was from the middle of the fairway on the 11th. I had just over 100 yards and I hit a little knockdown PW. It was playing into the breeze and it came off just as I pictured it (the Blueprint irons are amazing!). The pitch mark is just past the hole.

Unfortunately, I missed both putts

I've also played the Titleist EXP balls the last two rounds and I like them. I will be interested to see what they become in terms of marketing.

67
FIR 8/13
GIR 12/18
Putts 26

Same 9 I shot 2 over on last week, I shot a 5 over with 2 3-putts.

42 (par 37)

6/7 FiR

3/9 GiR

16 putts

Last week, I would've missed the ocean if I was teeing off from the beach. This week I hit all but one fairway (tried to cut the corner with a 5W but didn't quite carry it, so driver was flawless) but nothing else was working. What a crazy, dumb game!

Absolutely terrible day. I think I pulled a @Shankster and quit for 20 minutes after I left the course. By the time I got back home, I was already analyzing what went wrong to prepare for my next “adventure”. After extensive analysis, I realized that hitting 4 inches behind the ball was not producing optimal results. The cause of this ineptitude is pending investigation....

But at least you got to play. It's December in Minnesota!

... At least your bunker play must be on fire!  😉

Been sucking lately with rounds at 88, 89, 92, etc. so I reached back into my closet and pulled out: Wilson Triton Driver, PowerBilt Air Force One 3W, 5W, 3H & 4-PW, AW & SW. The only club I did not change was my Evnroll ER-6 putter. Shot 86 on Tuesday then shot 40/41:81 today. Guess I’ll be gaming the Wilson and PowerBilt this weekend!

Funny you should mention this. I was having some problems with G410 driver (height/distance) and took out F8 driver and grit was good distance 10 yards more. Dunno what’s going on.

Played Magnolia today with my son in what will be my last round of the year. Shot an even par 72 from the back tees and it was an up and down day. I shot even par on the front and didn’t make a par until the 9th hole...four birds and four bogies on the first 8 holes in alternating order (not sure I have ever done that). Then for good measure I finished the round with 10 straight pars for what was a good way to end the year. Overall the swing is there, ball flight is where I want it to be and working the ball both ways. My goal over the winter is to work on the putting and getting more comfortable with left hand low. Other than that the gear is dialed in and ready for the spring.

Going to change hosel setting next time out. I took the F8 out after a couple of mediocre G410 outings and I was hitting drives as long as 2-3 years ago.

It was the best of times.
It was the worst of times.

Today was the end of year dogfight. They double cut and double rolled the greens and tucked the pins where no mere mortal would dare aim at. I mean, these greens normally run 11 on the stimp. But today was another level of fast.

By the fourth hole I had learned my lesson and stopped aiming at flags. It didn’t seem to matter. I played safe and left my approach shot short of the green. Chipped on 10 ft past the hole and blew the first putt 7 ft by the hole, missed the comebacker and walked off with double bogey.

The highlight of the day was the 7th hole, a driveable par 4. They had a closest to the pin on your 2nd shot for $50. I left my drive in front of the greenside front bunker and looked at the pin location and my 30 yard chip and had no idea where to hit the ball without it going off the front of the green with it’s false front. So I hit my chip 10 feet right of the pin and just past it, just far enough to avoid the false front. The ball ended up 6 ft 4 inches below the hole. Of course I missed the putt, but my shot held up to collect the closest to the pin prize.

Good times!

Walked 9 after work tonight finishing right at dark. Shot a 41 with a bird and left a 10 footer on the course.  Happy with the round in 50 degrees, fog, and soggy fairways.  The 5 par 4s left me a 5i, 6i. 4h, and a wedge on a short dog leg which I birdied. Nice night on am empty course.

A little cool and a few drops  falling.  Played forward tees (5578).

Score  87, 10 penalties mainly on back 9 due to fatigue,  sending a few swimming.  8 Par, 5 bogies, 5 doubles. 64% Fairways,  5 GIR.

Good solid drives and short irons today. Penalties were a result to simply over swinging.

It's December in Iowa.  I played 18 last Wednesday and 18 on Thursday.  Stayed inside on Friday because of the weather.  Went deer hunting on Saturday, hit some balls on Sunday, and shoveled snow today.  Done for the year?

Struggling with my swing lately.  Totally out of sync.  Time to get back to the basics and find my swing again.  Shot an 89 yesterday...just couldn't stop the bleeding....the more I tried, the worse it seemed to get.  Only thing that was working was my putter...every other club felt like a foreign entity in my hands.

Crazy, right? Two Sundays ago, I shoveled 6+ inches of heavy, wet snow. Yesterday there were several courses by me that were open. Rain today, and even the piles of snow where I shoveled are gone already!

Probably the last round for a bit as heavy rains coming for the next week at least.  Chipping, pitching, and iron play was good. Tee box and putting not so much. Maybe two strokes better than bogey golf for the night.
