How'd you play?

Went out for 9 holes, played two balls 40/42. Kinda sloppy for me. Hit the ball all over with a big push right. But it got better at the end and found a good ball position, so that needs to carry over to today.

So I've seen a number of posts in here that start out with something like: "..a tale of two nines". Well... now I know what they mean! 

Played 18 about a week and a half ago but forgot to post .. maybe I wanted to forget, literally, about the back nine? (..ha ha ha...) .. in the past my 18 hole rounds have typically been a mix of ok and not so ok on each hole; with scores typically mid-90s but have had rounds of 90, 91, 92 but then too often more hi-90s rounds.

Drove about 50 minutes East to where we could get a last-minute tee time; funny thing is I thought it was a new-to-us course but we get there and my wife says, "Hmm, this place looks familiar" .. sure enough, we'd played there two or three seasons ago, and unfortunately I remembered not liking it so much... It's one of those courses built around a community, so at one point there's a looooong stretch of path going past houses and crossing a road to get to a section of 4 or 5 holes followed by that same looooong stretch back to the finishing set of holes..... I didn't remember people walking last time we were there, so we took a cart (plus my wife likes walking 9 but not 18 soooo..).

Anyway, I put all that stuff aside and play up front with my wife and just try to hit nice shots into the fairway and towards the green. First tee shot a low runner but into the fairway and in the right direction; second shot a bit thin and right but good distance left me pin-high uphill on the outside edge of a very wide fringe .. 3-putt bogey. OK, not worried, always have trouble adapting to faster/more sloped greens vs the munis I usually play on.

Next hole, short Par 3, managed a par; third hole, short par 4, decent bogey; fourth hole, another Par 3, missed the green just to the right but got up & down for another par.
(Hmmm .. we're almost playing real golf here!)

Fifth hole, Par 5, a careful tee shot into the fairway followed by a good enough layup to a good position just over 100 out from a front pin - and I've got a good shot at it, as the green is open in the direction I'm hitting but fronted by mounds and bunkers along the left going uphill around the larger part of the green, thick rough on an upslope behind and water a short distance to the right.

And as I'm standing over the ball sizing up my shot, waiting for one of our playing partners to finish his, I comment to my wife.. "Hey, I remember being in almost this very same spot after putting a few balls into that water right there trying to get up here!"

Guess what happens next, on my straightforward 100 yd basically no obstacle shot?

Yep. Splash! 
d'oh... 

Finished with a Triple. Followed up by a Double with another 3-putt. But... followed by two pars and a bogey on the Par 5 #9 after a mis-hit off the tee; for a Front 9 of +8 (Par 36), or .. as I like to call it .. "1-under bogey golf" 😆  Which I think was pretty good for me, on that course (slope rating 121 from the front tees), especially considering those two high-scoring holes.

On to #10..
..another short Par 4, another good enough tee shot into the fairway, another "almost" second missed the green but I pulled off another up & down for a par .. yea! 

From here, things fell apart. Not sure exactly what I "had" and then "lost", or what was "on" and then switched "off", but I started missing tee shots or putting them into trouble spots and .. the somewhat comical thing is .. I hit like EACH AND EVERY bunker on the rest of the back 9 .. TWICE!! Not entirely kidding here! - several bunkers I duffed the first attempt and had to do it all over again... (fwiw a few times I gave myself a lift/smooth out the deep footprints I was in/drop)

Several high-scoring holes and somehow three bogeys later...

..we're on #18 and I say, "OK, let's try to finish in style."

I hit a good tee shot down the right side but didn't see it bounce and/or roll to the right into a fairway bunker. From there I was just trying to lay up short of the green - ended up catching it "clean" and ball flew past my layup spot into the bunkers to the left of the green .. where I duffed the first attempt and left it plugged deep in very soft sand in the steep front face of the bunker under an overhanging lip... Punch it out, putt uphill over a ridge, left it short .. 3-putt... Oh, gee, almost forgot - first tee shot on #18 went way waaay left towards the OB fence; it was far enough away from where we were headed I just called it OB and re-tee'ed to yield me a grand total of 9 on the closing hole. Ouch.

Back 9 total +21 (Par 35).
Or: 2.625 times more strokes than the Front 9.
Or, as I don't like to call it 😆 .. "way too many over bogey golf"... 

Hey there's always next time!

Played Saturday in my handicap association tournament at Bay Forest Golf Course near my home. I played very well all day except for one hole, the par 5 14th, tee shot in the the water right (only lost ball of the day) and went on to triple bogie...%$#@!!! But overall a good day with good playing partners and moderate hot and breezy weather. Finished with a very competitive net 70 on the round.

Putting was much better this round as the greens were in great shape.

I'll play 18 tomorrow and remember to bring the gps watch.

I remembered the gps watch this morning. I got the Tectectec for fathers day. Worked great and took no time getting comfortable with it. 

Started off with bogey but then got my act together finishing the front with two bogeys and a birdie. Was kicking some butt on the back nine with one bogey and one birdie going into 18. Hooked my drive, tried to be creative with no luck. Wound up with a double on the last hole. Was not going to leave defeated. Went back to the 18th tee and played the hole again and made par. Wanted to leave on a good note.

Shot 37 /37 on a par 71 course. The best part of the day was playing the 3 toughest holes for me even par. Now I've done it twice  in the same round. Both times this season.

Played 9 last night and my first round with my new Mizunos. Never touched them until the 5th hole as I was leaving myself 120  or less in which is my Vokey range. Played to a +4 thanks to chipping and putting which was becase my wedge play was not great. 

I will say the combination of of 919 Tour with a ProV1 was a crazy good combo.

Well first 18 of the day started extremely up and down. Went Double, Par, Double, Par followed by 4 bogeys and another Par playing the first 9 holes at 44.

I’m gonna stop here and say that I ordered some golf balls online and they didn’t show up in time to play today so I had to use a refurbished proV1. The clubhouse was finally open when we went to start the second 9 so I ran in and picked up a 3 pack of Tour B XS. Things changes from there.

Started the the second 9 birdie birdie with 2 perfect 25 foot putts. First one was from just off the green and the second was a steep down hill left to right breaker that hit center cup. I managed to go par, par before losing a ball on my Nemesis hole and finally bogeying. Then found a way to miss a 5 foot birdie putt on 8 and a 6 foot par putt on 9 to finish with a career best 36 even par second 9.

The even par was my first ever over 9 holes and a goal for this year. The new PXG Lucky D putter was absolutely money today.

 

 

I will be heading out later today to play my first iron only round with the t200’s and will need the putter to stay hot if I want to have a shot at @Berg Ryman in our competition.

40/40:80  today.  Didn't count stats, but overall it was a good ball striking day.  Putting wasn't bad even thought the greens had recently been aerated but left 4/5 on the lip.   The bad part was the rest of the course had been punched as well so fairways were a little long and the ball sat down in some of the holes.  Short game was good;  no chunks or bladed balls and I had good distance control   

Did a swing evaluation last week and have been doing drills this week to work on the changes that we are going to make.  As I mentioned above,  ball striking was good.  I have been hitting balls during the week as part of most wanted testing and the swing carried over to the course.  What I found was that I hit the center of the face more consistently and even added a few yards with each club with less effort.   Looking forward to continuing lessons to work on strategy, swing, and specialty shots. 

Overall I like the direction my game is heading.

45/44=89 my yardage was spot on today. But I ended up with being pin high taking a penalty’s or chipping instead of putting.

I ended up shooting a 90 in the Ohio gathering. Spraying off the tee and I didn't hit too many solid irons, but short game was good leading to 33 putts. Highlight was draining a 28 footer for birdie (that @tony@CIC also birdied).

Full report and a few pics here. I assume others will add more pics, at least I hope.

Came out slightly on fire for a 43 on the front and limped in a 47 on the back at the Ohio outing...there were flashes of brilliance and valleys of deep depression.
