How'd you play?

My typical +5 thru 6, then a bird on 8.

then played clean thru till 15 and promptly plunked one into the drink for another double- that’s 3 doubles this round- barely escaped with a 79, but obviously kept out of the 80’s. That back to back double on the front seems to be a reoccurring theme lately, and it would be a better deal to stop doing so poorly on the front-

apparently one of the hazards of being the first off every morning

Snuck in a last minute 9-hole round after lunch. Made a 2:10 tee time at 1:40 from 20 minutes away, so it was out of the car, onto the first tee box.

Didn't find the driver until about the 5th hole and couldn't hit an iron to save my life. Pull hooked everything.

Decent day with the putter to salvage a 46 and beat my brother-in-law by a stroke. All in all not a failure. 😀

Too bad you had to rush. I'm sure that lack of stretching/warm up contributed to the slower start. But HEY!! You were golfing on a Fri afternoon. Having fun for sure.

Happens every year at  this time of the season Playing decent golf with primary fade for the 1st month of the season   Then sudden I wake up and Everything was a hook  Yikes! wanted to give up golf   After one week of reflection I have accepted the reality that hooks will never be cured only managed 

My go to club to create the biggest hook is 8 iron 

Was at the range and changed my grip to less strong more neutral

stance line up fractionally closed not extremely close   Very slow takeaway 

Started to get draws   Started to get more comfortable with that shot shape

I went 44/39. Greens were really tough. I hadn't played in a few weeks, so most of the game was off. But my driver was awesome. I played a ProV1 on the front and a Maxfli Tour on the back, while the distance was good with Titleist, the Maxfli avereaged about 20 yards longer, and I hit a 3W 271 per Arccos which was longer than all but one of the Titleist drives. I'm still gaming the Z-Star as my preferred ball, but I'm demoting ProV1 out of the rotation. Between price, and how it's been surpassed in performance, I can't justify it any longer.

Posted in the VCT. Todays nine was pretty good. Approach play was somewhat messy. Short game saved me but could have also aimed a little better to get closer. My 9’ putts killed me. Had 5 and missed them all. Most were slight miss reads. A few distance control. On 18, nearly drained a 15’ for birdie. On hole 13, par three, I was picking up my ball and writing my score when a guy behind me, yells from the tee, “ $&/@ing move”. Mind you, the three prior holes there was no one behind me at all. Led me to get rattled and duck hooked my next drive ob. I also finished in 90 mins. Some people really know how to ruin golf. Reported him to the clubhouse as this wasn’t his first time doing this to me. image.png.249d686decc7490d19e3d120c14ad8d5.png

Our course was closed all day today for a big tournament, so my wife and I took our sore backs to our sister muni course across the Columbia River in Pasco.  It's a nice course in great shape.  It is about 300y longer from their senior tees than our senior White tees but the Slope rating is lower than ours.  Nice, sunny morning at 7am and we were paired with two guys that we have actually played with before at our course.  They both had nice swings but sprayed the ball everywhere.

I shot 78... 40/38.  Made a bogey on the par 3 #2 hole after shanking my 7i off the tee.  I settled down after that and played pretty well except for the par 5 holes... bogeyed two of them, doubled one, and made par on the last one.  I followed up the double on the par 5 #11 with birdies on #12 and #13; missed a birdie on the par 5 #15 by one roll of the ball.  The grass is very different on the fairways and greens than our course and the greens have more slope to them.  Overall, the speed of the greens was a little slower, but the slopes made them seem quicker.  I could get used to these greens very quickly if I played here more; this was the first time we have played this course this year.

We don’t stop playing the game because we get old; we get old because we stop playing the game.”

I’m down in Augusta Ga checking on my mother. Tried to get on a local course today but it’s closed this time of year for renovation and honestly I’d never get invited anyway. I played Augusta Municipal. I sucked. My course handicap is a 3 and shot a 83. Not good at all, especially with 3 birdies. More work to do

When my wife asked if I wanted to leave Maine and move to where she grew up, I couldn't say no to Pinehurst, NC. I honestly don't spend much money on golf equipment, but I'm constantly reading reviews in case I ever get ready to buy

I swing left handed and have been the State of Maine Left Hander's champion since 1997, the last year they held the tournament. I'm currently a 7.1 handicap. Trying to get lower, but my gut gets in the way.

Finally getting to where I can play a bit instead of drive up and down the east coast. Played today on a very wet golf course but it was playable. Went off the back and made a birdie on 10 and that was it. 17 pars to finish out my day and it was a bit underwhelming. Didn’t struggle to make par on any hole and didn’t give myself any great birdie looks. Tomorrow is another day I guess. 

 By keeping it in play and making a lot of "ho-hum" pars leads to very consistent scores and the sign of a better player, no matter the circumstances or conditions.

I used to get teased by some I played with about my managing the various courses we would play, but my scores always seemed to be lower and more consistent than those who may have taken unnecessary chances or risks attempting a high risk/reward type shot.

It was SO hot yesterday, heat index around 110*, so I just played 9 and played at the city course where I used to play for 20 years before it went into disrepair. I knew it was in bad shape, but where I normally play had a tournament so I went to play with just practicing driver and approach shots since the greens are so bad. Hit the ball well, probably because I wasn’t trying to score and was pretty at ease… Here are some pics of the course. I don’t want to hear how “bad” anyone’s course is unless it’s THIS bad!!!

The journey to breaking 100 continues, played Painted Hills yesterday (from the Greys 65.9/102), and shot 101 (57 front, 54 back).

Can only seem to get one aspect of my game working at a time. Between the teebox and green I was feeling fairly confident. My SW through 7i are all feeling pretty comfortable, but all my longer clubs are pretty unreliable for me. Driver was feeling great for the first few driving range sessions and round I played, but now it feels completely foreign to me. Greens were a little frustrating for me because I had focused solely on putting since my last round. My lag putts were pretty good, and I was getting in good position put I just couldn't put them away. Was constantly glancing the hole, or lipping out. Still had a lot of fun, and always a great way to spend a morning.

This week I am going to practice finishing putts. I need to go to a different course to practice on actual holes as my local only has practice pins on the practice green, and I think it's adversely affecting my ability to finish. If I can get my Approach and Putting game working in harmony I think I can break 100 easy.

37-37 for a 74 today at RNK. Didn’t hit it particularly well so pleased I was able to not put up a big number. Putter bailed me out several times today which is not something I am used to.

@PMookie i had a walking membership at a course like that... 2 years for $200.  It was like playing a driving range,  hit you tee shot, move your ball to any grass within 15 yards and hit your approach.  Forget about putting thru the sand!

Played at the indoor simulator, 2 ball scramble with Dad. Muirfield Village from the tees that play about 6300y is a long haul for Dad, but my driver was on today, got us in the fairway a lot. 

We played really good, but the par 3 #12 that plays over water got us good. I went left, wet. Dad went right, dry but on the wrong side of the OB markers. Took a triple bogey there but still managed to score +9 for 81. T4 in the Standings currently.

I shot an okay 77 from the tips this morning. My swing is feeling amazing, and I hit the ball as good as I ever have. It’s just I was guessing at shot shapes, but for the most part what I’ve been working on is starting to transition to the course. I just need to dial in my shot shapes with my irons. If 77 is a so so round then I think I’m doing okay.

A very pleasant 74º headed to mid-90’s but that’s after we finished.  Back to our course today, but we had to tee off at 6:45am to beat the second day of the tournament.  Not sure what they did yesterday, but today the Blue tees were up with the White tees.  What’s with that!!

Back still bothering me, but I managed 42/36 for another 78.  I was +5 on the front nine with 2 doubles and was +1 on the back nine with 2 bogies and a birdie.  It was an interesting round where I only hit 5 GIR but my short game was great!  Even the birdie was from off the green!!  

Now I get a few more days off from golf to rest my back.  When it gets better, I’m sure that I will be back posting in the low 80’s again!!  🤣

We don’t stop playing the game because we get old; we get old because we stop playing the game.”

Played my go to course, from the Blue tees this past Saturday(for the first time in a while), 6050 yards instead of 5690.  Amazing how much different the course presents.  Different clubs in on several, two par threes that require 5 iron instead of 8, and further back on a couple makes driving shoot just a little bit narrower. Probably could not have picked a more difficult day to decide this, light mist/drizzle, wet, but it was a good change, and challenge  even though score was 91, when from other tees 80-84 is normal.

Getting back into a nice little groove, just need to eliminate the couple of mistakes I make per round that keep me from getting near par. Played three nines over the last three days - 39 on Saturday with a couple of missed putts, 40 Sunday with two double bogies and and 37 this morning because I couldn't keep my tee shots near the fairway coming down the stretch.

Game has basically boiled down to whether I can have an unencumbered second shot. Can't score well when you're trying to hit the green from behind or underneath trees...

I got in 15 holes last night after the storms passed thru.  The course was mostly empty so i was able to get around in 2 hrs before the cart had to be back in.  I was not impressed with tee shots as i am still working on a full swing that is repeatable.  My iron shots and wedge game saved me with yardage and direction being dialed in pretty well.  I didnt miss a green until the last hole when i had a shot at it and wasnt punching out.  

As it got dark about 8:20, I was thinking it would be ideal to live as far west in a time zone as possible.  I noticed on my drive thru indiana last week that i could have golfed until about 9:15!  😄

I just got back from Hilton Head last night. I was fortunate to be able to play twice while we were there. All courses punched their greens within the last month, so we had to deal with that. A friend of a friend got us on a private course just off the island (Riverton Pointe). Really nice layout, imo. I ended up with a 40/44 for a +12. Driver was mostly very good, except when it wasn't (3 penalties). Irons were pretty good, short game and putting very good. 

The next day, I played Old South, just off the island and shot 40/45 for a +13 (with another 3 penalties, including a triple on 18). There are a couple interesting holes. I really liked 16...

Wind was hard from upper left to lower right. I flared my 3W. I assumed it was lost so hit a provisional that was perfect. I adjusted Arccos to approximate where I would have been hitting from, but unfortunately my first was ok.

Would have been a 50-ish yard difference. I guess I parred it anyway. Fun hole, imo. My buddy didn't have as much fun.

Again, tee ball was pretty good, except for a few swings. Irons were the best they've been in a while, and short game again bailed me out. See example above and below.

I don't know how that ball stayed dry, but it did, leaving a tough chip, especially since I was looking over my shoulder waiting for a gator to lunge out of the water at me (my mind was picturing Linda Kozlowski in Crocodile Dundee).

This is very simliar to my game right now. If I am missing off the tee I am getting myself back into the hole and making a putt to save a par or bogey. Then good tee shots and good wedge/iron I am just missing putts for a few birdies that I need to put something really good together.

No complaints just hope to put it together soon!

Saturday was out and shot 40/44 with 2 doubles on the back.  What really has haunted me the last 2 days was the first double on 13 is a par 4 and i was laying 2 with 20 yards from the center of the green.  Stubbed my wedge and left it short of the green.  Then i chipped it on and was nowhere near the hole.  Leaving me a 15 footer for bogey. 

Now to be honest, the 40 was the best i ever played on the front. I should be rejoicing.  It was just one of those days for me that i couldn't miss.  I know about my other double (hardest hole on the course and it exacted it's revenge on me)
