How'd you play?

Recommended Posts

The usual Friday 9 turned into 18 and @yungkory wisely left after the front because the weather got wild on the back. Fun fact, rainbows, while fun to look at, mean rain is coming 🤣

87 (44/43) - I was +5 on the two par 5s on the back, which didn't help matters.

FIR 3/14 (21%) - Slightly misleading as a few were barely off the fairway, but still too low.

GIR 9/18 (50%) - Better than usual, but my poor putting negated any benefit of hitting more greens.

37 putts (20/17) - I had three 3 jacks, primarily due to being far from the hole (35+ feet) on my first putt.

All in all there were some positives from a windy and wet round so I'm going to bust my ass to keep improving!

... I feel your pain as we have all been there and done that. Sometimes a 35 foot putt with break, slope and grain is tougher than a 35 ft chip or pitch. I like your positive attitude though!!! 👍

Shout out to @ncwoz who spotted me as I was heading off the first tee today. First time running into a fellow spy! 

Second time ever playing this course, played the front nine twice, it was veeeeeerrrrrrryyyy wet, nearly got the cart stuck, and the greens were absolutely shaggy and slow. Tale of two nines as the first nine was really rough with my swing just really out of sorts, but I pieced it together for the second nine.

I don't think I missed a single putt past the hole all day haha

I don't know how the East course was (I think that's what you played?), but I don't know if I've ever played a course in worse condition. The greens on the West course were longer that what I would usually expect for fringe, and my feet sunk in a good 1/2 inch on the ones that weren't frozen. I felt so bad - I hit/left 3-4 inch ruts in several spots with the cart even though I was trying to use the same paths as others had. I ran into another group on my second nine and they said they were playing East but quit because they lost so many plugged balls in the fairway.

I would guess Saskatoon or Scot Lake will be open soon. They will be in much better shape, I hope. Kaufman posted on Facebook that they were hoping to open next weekend. So we'll have a few other options soon. It's unfortunate that so many of the older courses around here just don't have adequate drainage.

Yeah, even in good weather I've never been very impressed anyway. But I didn't have quite as bad luck with plugging in fairways, and the majority of the East greens weren't terribly water-logged. Definitely shaggy and slow though.

But I'm right there with ya, the rest of the area courses should be opening up pretty soon here, and should be in better shape.

Struggling with my putting so I am trying to putt with my putter flat on the ground. Have a toe up tendency which gets me offline missing the hole.

Good front side 39 with a double bogey, but followed it up with a dreadful back shooting 45 for a smooth 84 .... just couldn't seem to find anything on the back.  Cold, overcast day (low 40s).

55º sunny with slight wind.  What does that equal?  87 with six (6) doubles.  Nothing worked.  I suck!

Shot good again, ptxPros still rocking. I benched Tommy for Evn and Evn responded well. I think he was tired of living in the truck instead of the bag.

First 9 hole round of 2020 yesterday. It felt so nice just to be out walking the course. 

Ground was soft, which is to be expected coming out of winter, but it wasn't as bad as I have seen at other times. The ground was certainly helped by the cart path only rule for the weekend.

I'm understandably excited by the birdie on #6, but am most proud of the bogey on #8.

I shanked my 3wood off the hozel into the trees on the right and needed to punch out. I followed up my punch out with two less than mediocre swings and ended up 80yds away for my 5th shot. I managed to get up and down from there. Solid work from a bogey golfer.

Played 36 at Turtle Bay yesterday, and it was still really windy, but it was dry. I only kept score on the Palmer course, as the shanks crept into my game on Fazio course. Always something!

88 (42/46) - Three penalty shots hurt me on the back 9, and inconsistency off the tee made things difficult at times.

FIR 3/14 (21%) - See aforementioned comment about inconsistent tee game.

GIR 7/18 (39%) - Not great, but seeing how I missed a few greens short it's actually not too terrible.

Putts: 34 - Not a great number, but I was putted much better this round. My only 3 jack came on a par there where my first putt was 78 feet, leaving a 11 foot second putt, which I barely missed. SG putting was -1.810 and based on my last few rounds, this is about a 4 stroke improvement so hooray for progress!

You'd think after being here in Hawaii for 3 years that I'd be used to playing in wind, but these last few rounds have been exhausting. If anything, I figure it'll make the mild days somewhat easier moving forward!

Well, got to play 9 holes over lunch.  Was about 50 degrees out and some wind and some slow bumpy greens (ok excuses over).  Certainly have a lot to work on, but managed a 41 with some terrible numbers.  3 of the putts from 35 - 40 feet or so would have normally lagged much closer, but ended up 6 feet short and missed them all coming in.  

Score: 41

Fairways: 2/7  (several just off fairway and had no issue)

Greens 6/9

Putts: 21 (Three 3 putts and Zero 1 putts)  - Need a lesson

9 holes with Temp 55’ and of course WIND. Doubled 1st hole Par 5 then settled down a bit for 42. Greens were great so made putting a bit easier.
Wind has been nasty last few days.
