Adjusted my driver down a few degrees, which opens it up slightly as well. Probably should have done it at the range before I took it to the course, but it was way too beautiful not to get a round in!

44/45; 89

36 putts, 3/14 FIR, 6/18 GIR

I was a little streaky off the tee and with the short game, had some great shots and some really poor ones. I still feel like I'm leaving some shots on the course, but 89's definitely on the low side for me! I'm happy with the consistency I've seen so far this year, hopefully it leads to some new lows.

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

I got a hole in one on the first hole today. Makes for a really enjoyable round. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

Un-bloody-conscious! I still can't believe it but I shot a 79! 57% FIR 33% GIR 30 putts.

Reset my driver, and bagged a new 3 wood. 78 in absolutely soggy conditions and standing water all over the back 9. Only 1 birdie and 4 of the 5 times I hit the 3 wood it was a good shot.

Stunk it up today.  Front was okay...40 with a double, then made the turn and a new guy showed up.  Doubled #10 (bad chip), doubled #12 (OB and provisional no decent shot), #16 dropped a ball in water but saved bogey, 18 -- wow --- unplayable lie from drive, hit the dropped shot thru the fairway behind a tree with no way to hit the green....7 for a smooth 45 on the backside.  85 for the round.   To be fair, I seem to have injured my right wrist/forearm somehow and it bothered me most of the day.  Icing it now at home.

Got out early today before the rain came and got in 36 holes before the skies opened up. My 4 ball turned into me playing as a single and out first with a cart, first round was just under 2 hours. Hit it well and made a few putts for a change and turned the first round in even par with 4 birds and 4 bogies. Used the second 18 as a practice round and hit some chips and putts around the greens and I blew around the course. Two more days of golf to go before I have to get back to the grind.

I don't normally post on How'd You Play because somehow I haven't felt quite good enough that anyone would want to know. But today is different. Today I was the happiest person on the golf course and even danced around one of the greens when I made a 2nd birdie.

But best of all, I finally broke 90 with an 84. Woohoo! It's like my 3 wood made up it's mind to take control of my game this afternoon but allowed me to go along to view the scenery. It was quite a surreal feeling. I thought I had lost it all on #17 when my drive bounced OB on the right and my next shot soared all the way across the fairway into a lake. Completed that hole with my only 7 of the day.

 

... Congrats Artful! Not that everyone needs to post all their rounds or even any rounds, but I would say bad rounds are probably more relatable than good rounds. I think we all love reading about good rounds but even a + index has more bad rounds than good rounds. Of course "bad" is relative but we are all here because we love reading about golf. Thanks for sharing. ✌️

Those are the kind of results that keep you coming back to the game.

Congrats on the score!

Can’t agree more than @chisag said. I think I can speak for everyone when I say we just enjoy reading about rounds. What you liked about the course what can be worked on. What you saw you can work on. Not always about good scoring we just like to talk golf!

Congrats on that low number he’ll of a day. Did you pull a happy Gilmore dancing around the green

My wife and I played at different times today both we both arrived at the same conclusion - we strongly dislike playing on holiday weekends.

My league partner and I decided to play 18. There's an open tee time between us and the threesome ahead so we thought we'd be moving along quickly. We caught up to them on #3, they're 30 somethings playing from the whites (6000 yds). 2 out of the 3 are major slicers, the 3rd can't hit it past the ladies tee. And to top it off it was cart path only. As we approached 7th totally disgusted, we both said at the same time we're calling it quits.

My wife gave up after 9.

Congrats on the breaking the 90 barrier.  Always great to read about people beating their personal best or crossing the 100, 90, 80, or 70 barrier.  Like others have said,  this is just a way to talk about our round and its successes and failures.  Sometimes we post scores, sometimes we just talk about what went right or wrong. 

Keep it up!
