How'd you play?

Recommended Posts

Greenskeeper Revenge 2 man scramble today.  Pins were tricked up pretty good using various obstacles, mounds, slopes, and whatnot to make it tougher than tough.  If that wasn't bad enough, both my partner and I played just poor golf.  Rules required 7 drives from each player.  I actually had to take a few less than optimum drives to get my 7 in.  My partner is a 6 hdcp and I'm a 7 --- we shot an 80!!!  That's poor playing no matter how you slice it (pun intended!)!!!!!!

Was not in a good mood when I saw the conditions of the greens when I arrived. Definitely were in my head the first few holes. Was just about ready to leave. A few beers later I calmed down a bit.

Solid day on the course, but definitely could have been better. Shot 79. Highlight of the round was getting birdie on a hole that in over 100 rounds I had never birdied before. The par 5 10th at Whitepath Golf Course is only 531 yards but requires the most precise tee shot ever if you want to go more than 6 iron off the tee box. I took it safe with the 6 iron, it goes downhill to a pretty tight fairway but being down the mountain it goes a long way if you hit it in the short grass. I then hit a mammoth 3 wood and found myself with a short pitch shot to set up a 5 foot birdie putt that I drained. Happiest golf moment of my life, this hole has terrorized me for 16 years and I live 10 seconds from the tee box so it's always just laughing at me daily. I've shot under par on the back multiple times, birdied the hole before and after, but that hole is the Bermuda Triangle of golf. Today, I conquered it!

It quickly became the second happiest golf moment of my life on the next hole, a par 3 that's almost 150 but plays 118 going down the mountain again. I hit one pin high, had almost 10 feet left for birdie. But my 6 year old nephew hit his driver inside of me and had a chance at his first birdie and par, but settled for a three putt bogey. Still such an awesome experience.

68
8/14 FIR
10/18 GIR
23 putts!!!
Pretty much made everything I looked at. The best or second best putting round I’ve ever had. 13 1 putts. It’s just too bad my swing didn’t join me until the 9th tee. 1 over after 8, birdie the next 4 and the 18th. 7 total birdies. 

Well done

I broke 70 for the first time today, so I played really well. Shot 69 with 6 birdies, so it could’ve been better yet. Putter was on fire as were the irons. Driver not so much, but my misses were still manageable.  
3/14 fairways
10/18 greens
22 putts

Congrats on breaking 70!!!

Happy to report I survived my first round out! Only lost one ball (frustratingly I think it got scooped up as the area was open between holes. Best shot came on the second. Knocked my 7 iron 160 to about 12 feet.

Congratulations on the milestone! It definitely sounds like the iron game was on point and the putter was on fire.

I got a round in. Overall, didn't play that great, but there were glimpses of hope. When I am not playing that well, I don't keep score, just focused on trying to hit good shots. Previously, my demon was off the tee. Started out the round with too many OB shots. My course is very narrow, so its easy to be OB off the tee. After settling down after the first few holes, my drives off the tee weren't super consistent, but stopped hitting so many OB shots, and had some glimpses of great drives. 

My current demon is fat short iron shots. I waste too many shots hitting the ball super fat on approach shots. A 100 yard approach shot should be the easiest shot for me, but then i find a way to hit it 20 yards with the biggest divot you have ever seen.

Got to sneak in 18 after work yesterday down at Diamond Springs. It's a Devries design, and an awesome course. Tons of really interesting holes and elevation change. Turns out it's pretty tough too haha.

50/46: 96; 6/14 FIR, 5/18 GIR, 40!! putts.

I had a few bad tee shots that didn't help me, but I think the putting is really what did me in. I didn't have a single 1 putt, and had some good chances.

And somehow, to my surprise, I actually ended up shooting net par!

I just got it as a warranty replacement. First nine walking I’ve got nothing bad to say. It’s nice and compact without being too tight of a squeeze. Holds just enough stuff for me
