How'd you play?

So frustrating! My father actually ended up losing a playoff match for our team by playing the wrong ball. It was almost dark and he assumed it was his since all the other players were by other balls.

Ouch that hurt. That's a 2 stroke penalty isn't it?

Congratulations, and don’t feel that you aren’t good enough to post here we all struggle w this gameemoji16.png
 

Case in point... I had one birdie and shot 88 today.  Fortunately, my wife had a not-so-good round and shot 91 otherwise she would have beat me.  That hasn't happened since before I had my knee replaced 6 years ago.  She would have if she hadn't taken a quad on #18.  She needs bunker work.

Played a local course today, par 70, very short track. Shot a 72, but it was one of those days that you just know you could’ve done better. Stretch of 5-6 holes that wedges were just lasers for the pin, nothing more than 15 feet away. Kinda got away from me at the end with some sloppy swings.

Alright, got to go back out for the 2nd weekend in a row and for anybody who saw my last post I kept the beer to a minimum and the shoes on this time; to much better result. Stayed a bit closer to home and played at Las Positas Golf Course in Livermore, CA. Considering all the time they had without golfers, I was a bit disappointed with the conditions of the course. The greens were a little bumpy, the tee boxes were lopsided and tore up, and the sand traps were half weeds. But considering all that it took a mental breakdown on the last hole to keep myself from shooting under part. I stepped up to the 18th tee @ -1 and took a look at my GPS unit. It is a dogleg left par 5 and it looks like the green would be blocked out on the 2nd shot anyways, so I pulled a 3 wood to lay up off the tee...But my playing partners, whom I got randomly paired with and by now were just about fall down drunk somehow convinced me to pull the driver and try cutting the corner a bit and they assured me I would have an open look to the green. I'm sure you all see what is coming next right?!? Pull Hook OB. Re-tee with my 3 wood and par that ball leading to a Double Bogie on 18 for a 73 on the day. All in all a great day, just a lame way to finish. 

But this did give me 27/36 holes that I have played pretty decent (the other 9 being the drunk barefoot section that was not really golf on my part) so I went ahead and booked another round for tomorrow morning (with the wife's permission) to go and play a slightly longer course to see if the course was just playing easy or if I actually unlearned all my bad habits while stuck at home. Tomorrow's round will be at Coyote Creek Valley Course in San Jose.

Nice!!  Las Positas was the very first course where I played golf while on a business trip to Livermore in 1991.  While there for 2 weeks, seven guys I worked with were playing on Sunday and needed one more to fill out two foursomes. Crappy rental clubs...  I don't even know what my score was, but I know I never made a par and don't know if I made a bogey.  Went home and decided to start hitting balls on the range.  Didn't play again until the next year... but I was hooked.

1st round since the 6th as I let my twilight membership expire as the course is just too busy for my liking. Spending my days at the range teying to fix my pull.

Shot +3 with no birdies, 1 bogey, and a double. The double was the result of a pulled 8i that left me with an impossible pitch to the green. 

Left a 3 foot birdie putt and a couple 10 footers out there. Guess I shoudve been practicing some putting.

Horrible golf weekend, just could not chip. Wasn’t striking the ball well. My right knee was giving me issues, wore a brace to get by. Friday shot44/49:93, Saturday Shot 43/48:91 and Sunday 39/50:89. The back nine simply killed me this weekend. On Sunday, after a 39 on the front I had 5 straight doubles on the back! A new record for sure. Combination of my knee and heat? Gotta work on it. Traveling on Tuesday to Tarpon Springs to play Wentworth. Have 9 of us so we will probably play the game 1, 2, 3. Where you play threesome and take one score on the first hole, 2 on the second and all 3 on the third, then repeat. Puts pressure on the 3rd hole.

Anything specific in the back that was screwing you up or just knee and heat?

That sounds like a good game. We have I think 11 going up to NH in a few weeks and need some good games to play (not everyone can do 36 full holes a day)

- 38/45 = 83 (+11)
- 7/15 FIR
- 5/18 GIR (1 birdie)
- 31 Putts (2 3-putts , 9 2-putts, 7 1-putts)
- 2:45 Round Time 
This goes down as one of my better round ever, and probably my best ball striking round of my life. I struck the ball extremely well on the front with most every club and really only had one or two awful shots. Went to the course with a few new swing thoughts and they really helped.
Back nine didn't go as well, still struck the ball well, but got a little hooky and had two shots sail OB left that hurt my score. I started to get tired near the end again, and ended up shanking an approach on No. 16 and topping a drive on No. 18. Remove those two penalties and wasted shots and I had a legitimate chance to break 80.
Driver still isn't good at all, but the irons are coming along nicely now. My balance is all out of whack with the driver, and I need to figure out how to not end up with my weight falling forward in my downswing. It's causing all my drives to be off the heel, the good ones being OK cuts or baby fades and the awful ones being low-left spinners. 
 

7 one putts! Nice! Was that due to chipping it close? Or did you drain a few long ones?

I also tend to favor the heel on drives but have learned to set up favoring the toe at address and firing away. I even spent a few rounds living in the “high-toe” zone last year.

Largely due to chipping it close. I've gone to using the Maltby PTM GW around the green if I don't need to clear anything and have some green to work with and I've been getting pretty good with it. I am starting to hit more greens than I used to, but I'm still working on getting reasonable length birdie putts. 

I'm really bummed because the ball I lost on No. 12 (150-ish par 3) I struck really well but I lost it in the sun. Didn't see it drop or hear it drop. Had I been playing with someone I'm sure we would have found it, but I had to assume it went OB left because I looked for about three minutes and didn't find anything around the green. Ended up taking a drop - kind of set the back nine off in a bad mood.

I've been setting up off the toe as well, was actually considering going the opposite route and trying some closer to the heel to promote me staying in my posture and not lunging as much. On 18, after the top (which was off low heel), I was basically on my tip-toes. Not going to hit many good shots with weight distribution like that.

Also, planning on bringing a water bottle and maybe some snacks for my next round. By 14-15 walking starts to take a toll on me.

The other thing I tried which seemed to help it to focus on the inside corner of the ball and try to hit there. It also helps my *power fade* on occasion.

That’s good stuff with the GW! I’ve been working on doing some more
Bump and run style shots versus just grabbing my lob wedge when I’m greenside. I’ve had a few real good results and few ones where it’s obviously a work in progress.

Not that I can think of. The week before I had an 81 & 82. Just could not strike the ball.
