Bunkers killed me the other day and cost me a couple of additional strokes.  I really need to work on that.

Dont usually struggle to bad out of bunkers...This was tight though, and with the rain the sand was "dense" to be nice about it. I was lucky it didnt go to the next tee box

Thanks buddy!  The real kick in the nads is we had to use a caddie and he told me to club up and both times he did I flew the green and landed in bunkers.  Took me two shots to get out each time.  Then the d-bag made me rake my own bunkers.  I have never hit my irons as crisp as I did the other day but it was like playing on carpet the fairways were so nice.

Tell me... how much do you tip a caddie who gives you wrong information about distance AND makes you rake bunkers that he was responsible for you being in?  Inquiring minds want to know.  😄

I was a guest at the club and my member buddy told me to give him a hundred bucks so I did. I think the going rate for the caddie is $70 so it was a $30 tip. I had to fix my divots as well which I kind of expected him to do but I guess my expectations are established by what I see on TV watching the pros.

Not well.... One of my higher scoring rounds in a looooong time. Put myself into trouble off the tee, had trouble on the second shots and most disappointingly had a lotta trouble putting.

There was a bright spot, though -- had a few punch outs and recovery shots, and one short approach, with wedges that I hit pretty well.

Have another lesson scheduled for tomorrow!

The weather down here has been incredibly hot, (about 110 index) all week, and the last two days were the worst. 🙄 I'm not posting here to complain about that, instead I wanted to just say how incredibly fortunate we all are to be able to play this game, and enjoy some of the beautiful courses where we live.

I think most golfers on a forum like this have either been, or want to visit the Myrtle Beach area, because it's known around the world has a premiere golf destination. I'm fortunate enough to have a place down here, and this week made me realize how nice it is to say that. Long Island is where my family is, and even after 9 years down here I still call it "home". but man,  I really love it down here also.

I played 3 times this week, at 3 of the top courses on the Grand Strand. Monday: The Dye Course at Barefoot. Thursday: True Blue. Today: Pine Lakes. Those of you familiar with the area know what kind of tracks these are, and yet I had almost become jaded to playing them at the greatly reduced rates I do. Driving home after my round this afternoon, I realized how grateful I should be.

I know this is a "How'd You Play thread", so I'll quickly mention my 3 scores were 84, 87 and 83 in the order I mentioned them. I played okay, about the way I should at my level. What stands out though were the good times I had, and playing in league competitions with really good friends (and we survived the heat!!).

While at the Open Championship in Scotland, didn't Boo Weekley say he thought Myrtle Beach was "the home of golf"?  🤣

Love the courses there.  It's just a loooong trip to get there.

So poorly - I was one over in the middle of the fairway on 6, 110 yards, not much breeze, smooth wedge that I shanked into a pond - triple.

Parred 7 and then hit a perfect 5 wood off the tee on 8 to leave, you guessed it, 111 yards, pitching wedge. I wasn’t shanking this one but instead hit the preferred topped ground ball into thick rough and a delightful down hill lie over a trap that I skulled to the back of the green from whence I three pitted for double, 42.

It didn’t get better on the back either except that I grabbed a beer at the turn and another from my buddy’s garage fridge walking up 15 so it was much more fun and I had no more shanks!!! I did hit another ball in the water on 17 though. I can’t remember the last time I lost two balls in a round.

On a positive note the pro that I play with a lot gave me a great bunker tip who I had ample opportunity to employ - quite successfully.

Just one of those days. 😞
 

SH😱NK?   Oh No!  

Glad it didn't haunt you the rest of the round like it does me.

Played in Day 2 of the Ryder Cup at my club and shot a very deflating even par 71. Was -4 through 11 made bogey on 4 of the final 7 holes. The putter just went ice cold on the back 9 after draining a 20 footer for bird on 10.

On a fun note I played against our 1st Asst Pro and had to give him a shot which was something I have never done. Beat him by 7 and we lost the match 3&1 thanks to his partners clutch playing. My partner had a bit of an off day and not sure he broke 95 today playing off of a 7.

Not well at all. Nothing really went wrong, it just didn’t go right. But I had a fundamental change in my swing this week with my coach, we finally think we got to the root cause of some timing problems. So I’m basically focusing on that feel every shot, and not really worried so much that they’re flying offline. I did get the feeling right a few times today, and left my buddies jaws on the floor. Like a stinger 3 hybrid that went 256 down the middle, followed by a 52 degree wedge from 122 to the flag that hit, bounced once, and spun back to 3 feet.

... Not how did I play, but how did the guy play I was paired up with play. Here is a quick hint: #9 is a 352 yd par 4. Hit one of my best drives of the day and had 80yds to the pin. David was playing from the tips and #9 is 372 and he put his tee shot in the green side bunker!?!?! He did this from the tee all day long. A modest 5'10" and about 180lbs he is an Army recruiter looking to join the PGA Program after putting in his 20 years. He played high school golf and went straight into the Army. I have never seen anyone hit the ball as far as he does. And he has a very normal looking swing, fast of course or should I say very fast but not like he was swinging out of his shoes. Just crazy silly long. #14 is a 562 yd par 5 and he hit driver-3 iron over the green. 

... He shot 1 under and I was one over. He probably would have been a little lower if I had not encouraged him on to hit driver on #17 a 354 yd par 4 that is probably 320 to carry the water. He pulled his tee shot a little and with a slight draw ended up in the heather and had to take a drop and ended up with a bogie. I have seen several try and drive that green but none ever hit it past the green. It was just awesome and I will remember this day for quite awhile. 

It's uniquely fun and humbling to play with guys like that. There are a couple bombers at my course back home in Missouri - guys that routinely swing 120+ without breaking a sweat. By recreational golf standards I am no short knocker, but I have to pick my jaw up off the floor when I play with them.

Oh, I know that feeling and IT. IS. THE. WORST! Glad you were able to take some positives away from the round.

4 over 75 on a beautiful early spring day. Putted well on recently scarified greens. Turned even with the card with a couple of birdies. A few soft bogeys on the back hurt my score but I'm really happy with how I played after not touching the clubs for a couple of weeks.

... I feel your pain. Crazy how they can pop up out of nowhere Rev. You may remember my very first shot with my T100-S was a shank and I cannot even remember the last time I shanked a shot. But kinda excited about hitting them for the first time, playing a knockdown out of the light rough with more forward shaft lean than normal was my excuse for shanking. I just had to laugh ...
