How'd you play?

Played 18 on Saturday and the struggle has continued with everything but the driver.  I think I missed 4 fairways but only hit 3 GIR.  It felt like I was either making par or double.  Very frustrating.

Took my son out to play 9 yesterday.  I am sitting at 2 over going into #9.  I split the fairway on 9 and leave myself 158 from the pin.  That is the closest I've ever been to the green on this hole.  I chunk a 6 iron 55 yards, blade a 48 degree wedge 125 over the hole into a cemetery, blade the chip going back to the hole, chilly dip the chip to the green.  Decided to putt the last two for a triple and a 41.

But 6/7 fairways and 13 putts.

I hate to admit how many times I've played a hole just like that😲

... Hopefully this makes you feel better Wedgie. Last year I was sitting on 2 under going into 18 and a birdie gives me a 69. Tough finishing hole but doable. Hit my best drive of the day leaving 169 with wind at my back on fast hard greens. I hit it as good as I could and right where I wanted just short of the green and ready to see it  hop on, bounce and then roll to a back pin. Instead, it hit a sprinkler head and bounced sideways into the lake!?! I had to drop in super deep grass on a severe slope and could only manage to get it in the bunker. Up and down for a smooth double with 2 just about perfect shots. If the golf gods have it in for you it doesn't matter if you hit good shots or bad shots, they are getting their pound of flesh. 🤪


And this is why some very good players don’t make it all the way up the ladder. They have the game but can never accept the vagaries of the sport. We watched one of them coming down nine today- he’s a strong mini tour player, has won some events but can’t make the jump to Korn Ferry. Having played with him i know it’s because he carries a bad break or bad shot with him for the next few holes. You can’t do that at the top levels of the game.

And I’m in no way suggesting you would Chisag - you’re point of how silly the game can be was well taken.

Played today at 3:07. Heat index was around 100. Walked!

IMG_1929.JPG

Course was in great shape, don’t know if you see my ball way up past my buddy’s. He and I are normally neck and neck. We both hit solid drives. I’ve definitely experienced a distance jump. I was 10 to 25 yards past him all day.

Here’s a picture from 9 to illustrate:

IMG_1930.JPG

Typical Suoerspeed jump though so I had a few skanky irons - a couple of flairs or thin hooks - chipping and putting was great. 37-38 75 - as a two some we played in 2:53 - he shot 40-41 81.

Here’s a picture from 9 to illustrate, note you come out of a shoot of trees on that hole and determine how much of the rough to carry - as you can tell by where I ended up I could have bit off more. Still he had 165 in, I had 128.

... Playing QB was the best preparation for golf. You can't let a bad throw have you second guessing your next throw. All concentration has to be on the play at hand. Golf is exactly the same. The very first shot with my Cobra Utility on a drivable 325yd par 4, I was laying up for an easy pitch but my drive landed squarely on the cement 100yd marker, bounced like a Super Ball and rolled onto the fringe. You are gonna get bad breaks and good breaks, all just part of the game. I have never understood throwing clubs, slamming them in the ground or getting upset which for me is all just wasted energy.

Three double bogeys, yet two birdies. The killer??? 27% FIR. Horrible off the tee.
82 (40/42). Finished double, bogey, bogey. Right now, with my irons, wedges, and putter doing well, I just need to get off the tee. On 2 holes where I decided to play more conservatively and hit hybrid or fairway, both were behind trees, and not in the fairway! Ugh!!!!

Got to agree with you there man. A short memory is needed with bad shots. I rarely get negative on the course, but sometimes I just need to take a second to vent some frustrations out (never pulling a Sergio and damaging the course though). Then its back to the next shot!

Great round Rev!  It's good to see you bombing it off the tee. I've got to give it to you, playing in 100 degree heat is rough. I couldn't imagine walking in it.

I understand this completely, but... but... when do I start getting the good breaks?  🤣

FYI, I've never thrown a club.  Tossed maybe, but always in the direction of the cart.

Agreed well said. I am for sure a grunter and the occasional “you dumbass” but never long or into the next shot just that moment. Can relate a lot of sports to this mentality keep on keeping on!

... Nothing wrong with momentary self recrimination for doing something stupid. I think the most derogatory thing I can say and from my experience most golfers feel the same, when I make a mental mistake like trying to guide a drive achieving the opposite followed by a most disgusted "Your Name Here!" Then like Keyser Soze ... it disappears and it is on to the next shot with a positive frame of mind.

Man, as someone whose miss is a block to the right, that tree is FRIGHTENING. Honestly, that's kind of a silly window to have to hit through. They should at least trim back that overhang on the left, geez. Golf is already hard, I don't need the greenskeepers to make it impossible.
