How'd you play?

Recommended Posts

Played 9 after what seemed like a looooong break .. heat, storm, house stuff.... but actually only about a week and a half.

Most tee shots were ok; most seconds were not so ok; and most short game and putting was ok. So a typical mixed bag??

I was, can I say?, easy 2 putting everything but there were a few first putts in there that I thought I might've had .. but just a tad too much break and/or tad too much speed. #8 had a solid 1 putt for a Birdie, but then gave it right back on #9 when I missed the second from 1 1/2 feet... D'OH.....

Finished +6 (Par 35) with reasonably clean round save for a 2-chip out of a bunker (bounced and rolled off the far side of the green) and that closing hole 3-putt.

Next time! (amiright people 🤪)

Played today, but really, I have played awful the last few rounds. Putting has been horrible, there was a few holes that I didn't even touch the cup or came close.

I always said golf is a love / hate relationship, right now is on the Hate... drove the ball decent, irons were ok,  wedges were good, but putting HOLY COW.. what a s*** show. 

And the Par 5 i have completely gone on the butcher cycle, perfect position of the tee and just butcher the next shot. Need to take a break from Golf for a bit. Going the wrong direction after making good progress.

I know you guys don't know what am talking about.. 🤣

For my son. I will stick to the pistol range until the arm feels better. Thinking the range time along with 13 rounds of golf in 15 days were a bit much for me.

79 (37/42). Funny, I shot better on the front and hit one fairway! 2 birdies on the front, 2 doubles on the back. Ugh. Not awful, but should’ve been better.

Had one of those rounds where the score was not good, but I learned a lot and in my mind progress was made. I've been able to consistently miss right, instead of big two way misses. My home course can be very punishing to any misses, generally with left misses meaning you are hitting the ball into someones yard. Still had some right misses today, but made a minor adjustment to my driver (increase loft by one setting to slightly close the face) and that helped. Now I need to overcome the fear of hitting the ball left and not being afraid of it. 

Lag putting was great today. Changed the grip on my putter to more of the style I was used to in the past, one that is much larger in size than the Sense grip. That helped my distance control significantly.

Not a good round today.  Shot my 18 hole handicap on the front 9, then shot another 4 over par on the back for an 84.  Just struggled all day.

... It is amazing how the first hole can set up the rest of your round. Playing into gusts of 20mph I wiped my tee shot and hit a tree, leaving me 210 to the pin instead of 140-110 which is normal depending on the wind. Just felt horrible hitting one of only 2 trees far right  on this easy opening hole with no fairway bunkers. Hit a great 4 iron under the limbs to the thick rough just short and left of the green and I felt much better. The ball was sitting down but not egregiously and I misjudged the thickness hitting a poor chip that came up 12 feet short and felt horrible again. Then I rolled in the 12 footer to save par and felt like anything was possible LOL. My back is still tight and I am not swinging freely the last couple of weeks so there were plenty more up and downs and I finished the front 1 under with a lone birdie on the most difficult hole. Played the back +1 and it was a grind from start to finish, but I thought the opening hole really set the tone for the round. Heading to #2 at +1 after playing an easy opening hole might have meant a different kind of day.

I shot a 45/43 88 and I'm not mad about it. First time in the 80's for a while. Best hole was the par 6 16th. Hit a small 230 yard drive right down the middle, chunked a 6 iron a whopping 70.5 yards then hit a perfect 3 hybrid 195 yards onto the green and 2 putted for par. The new swing is starting to come together.

My wife and I started out to play 18 but gave up after 15 because it was both slow, hot and humid. I ended up only booking the 45 on the front.

Truth!  Our opening hole is a par 5 that is beyond my length to reach in two any more.  I hit my 3rd shot to 4 feet below the cup, leaving me an slight uphill putt with no break for the bird.  I missed the putt.  Although I wasn't mentally distraught over the miss, I never did play well the rest of the round.   Yesterday, I sunk my birdie putt and won a net skin on the hole.  Today, my handicap was one stroke lower than it was yesterday and I wouldn't have gotten a stroke there...although the birdie would have been nice to have, regardless, and maybe the rest of my round would have gone better!  (That's my story and I'm sticking to it!)

I had a fun three days of golf with some friends in central Illinois. Friday was Prairie Vista in Bloomington - pretty open course with some tough greens. Shot 82. Saturday was iron-only day at University of Illinois Orange Course. Perhaps a bad idea for that course at 6600+ yards from the most forward men's tees, but ended up with what felt like a good 88. Today was a muni in Jacksonville, IL. I sucked. Couldn't hit an iron, ended up with a 92 on a pretty easy course.

On my way back from MI golf trip. Saw all my buddies, ate & drank too much, and played 90 holes in five days. A couple scramble rounds, but did card an 89 at Arcadia Bluffs South Course, which included five three putts and a four putt!!

Fairly decent weekend of golf for me.  Driver played a little better after I adjusted it from 10.5 to 9.5.  Saturday I managed to hit 5 iron shots catching the heel in the turf sending the ball left.  I had adjusted the lie angle to 2º flat a couple of years ago, but I'm thinking that maybe they moved a little back to standard.  Going to have them checked this week.  Short game was pretty good and helped me have a DOUBLE BOGEY FREE weekend.  So that's nice.

On Saturday my wife and I played with 2 guys; one a pretty good player and the other has been playing a month.  On the 1st tee I said, "Uh oh!!  Great guys and while the golf newbie hit a lot of bad shots, he hit a few good ones.  The best part was he played fast.  With as many shots as he took getting to the greens, we still had to wait on the group in front of us on nearly every hole.  I managed a 42/40 82; a round that had a lot of distractions.

On Sunday my wife and I played with a couple we usually play with a lot, but not in the last month or so.  A little better round for me at 41/37 for 78.  I managed only one birdie on hole #14, which was matched by my wife.  She also had two other birdies... I'm jealous.
