How'd you play?

Semi rainout this morning but still got in 9. Tees off 1 hour late and started on #5. But it was play 5&6 find shelter, play 7 shelter, play 8 then shelter. Played 9-11, then 14&15 to finish. The last holes weren't fun as the back 9 has low holes that were just soaked. And I was soaked and it was getting incredibly humid very quickly so decided to stop. Hit the ball fine but it was decidedly not golf today.

- 39 (+3)
- 5/8 FIR
- 5/9 GIR
- 17 Putts (8 2-putts, 1 1-putt)

I could only play nine this morning because of an outing. I've been a little light on sleep the last few nights so I was exhausted. Hit the ball reasonably straight but not terribly long. Still, I just missed two five footers for par on both No. 16 and No. 17 or else this would have been a one-over 37.

That's a nifty game style Steve, I know of Red, White, and Blue tournaments and I'd love to try something like that with my game.

What I like is there is no pressure at all. We rotate around the county and try to play a new course every season just to shake it up.

The course rotation is a great idea.  We did it often when I played in New England.  You can find some really good courses.

Played 18 this morning and played well again. I don't know who this guy is this year. The only bad thing today was my driver was off. Usually I'm at  13 or 14 fairways hit. Today only 10. But only one was way off the mark but I recovered well. I almost got out of the aceless thread. But no, close but no cigar. I'll post pictures there in a bit. I wound up with one bogey and four birdies for a 68. I have 5 rounds in the 60's this year. This is the first time I ever had more than 3 in the same season. After posting my score it says my handicap is pending at 1.3. That will be my lowest ever. 

 

That's awesome!!! Trying to catch up to you!

Played in a VGA Tournament yesterday at New Mexico Tech in Socorro, NM. Not my best round, but did come in 2nd net score for my flight, and my gross score was good for first in my flight, and would’ve even been 1st in the flight just one up from mine. It was a shotgun start, and I started on #4 a par 3, which I tripled, and the only other triple came on my last hole of the day, #3. I shot a 48/40=88 with 2 birdies, 30 putts, one 3-putt, 5 fairways and 4 GIR. I also won a closest to the pin contest…but unfortunately missed that 3-4’ birdie putt.

... I played with 3 guys that had a very unique, at least to me, betting game of 9's. Many of you probably know this game but for those that don't:

All holes add up to 9 points.

low score gets 5 points
2nd lowest score gets 3 points
highest score gets 1 point

If there is a 2 way tie for low score both get 4 points and high score gets 1 point

If there is a tie for second lowest, you split 2 points each

If all tie there are no points given

... It was fun watching these guys alternate between rooting for or against another player depending on where they were in the hole.

That sounds fun! I’ll have to remember that one. 
 

@Lacassem if we end up with 3 groups that could work in NH for some points.

I’m not 100% sure, but I think Mark Crossfield plays something like that with Matt Lockey and whoever else they have playing with them.

Looks like you and your daughter had a blast.  I've been trying to get my 6 year old into golf that past few years as well.  She loves the driving range since she is constantly hitting one ball after another, but so far she finds the course too boring.  Any tips?

So my daughter is 3 years old, so pretty much just hanging out is fun to her ha. One thing I did was go with my buddy who also has a 4 year old daughter, which they enjoyed.

Lundin Golf Club in Fife for me today, ex-Open Qualifier. Sunny 72'F but with 25-35mph winds, started Double, bogey but came on to a decent game to finish with a 79 and my partner clinching a win with a net birdie at the last. Like most of the courses in Central Scotland at the moment, playing firm and fast. Downwind 300yd drives into lucky to get 200yds. This is the 2nd of a summer 4 leg match play where each of us host the group. Lost 3 and 2 at Dunbar, won 1 up today onto Milngavie in July. FYI if any of you Americans want to phonetically write how to pronounce Milngavie go for it!1100383620_lundinGC2.jpg.8fc6fb2f61609c39c5fef33021b83d61.jpg

I had played the rogue X for 3 years before I bought the 0211’s (big mistake) 🙄 I wanted to get another set of the X’s but couldn’t find them, so I tried a few different GI irons, and the Mavriks worked the best for me.
I’m familiar with the Callaway “look” at setup, and I guess I need the forgiveness this category of irons gives me. The distance I get with them is also better than most I’ve compared them to. That’s important but I’m more into getting a nice accurate high ball flight than a few more yards.

I’d agree on the last sentence. More distance is great but accuracy, especially in 6 iron beyond, is much more important. 
 

I have some really old top flite irons so I’m playing with the lowest of the low. Just what my parents bought me for Xmas when I started playing in college. So looking to upgrade.

 

Not familiar with the 0211s, were they bad?

I love that driver! 
My friend has one with the Tour shaft, and he kills it. I’ve been hitting one on the range. I thought it would be a hook machine for me since I’m not a slicer, but it’s not. I love my G400 Max, but when I’m tired or stiff I struggle to square the face, and can hit a push or pull cut. The SFT seems to only want to hit a baby draw or go straight.
Hard to argue with those results, and as forgiving as the 400 Max is, I’d love to take the left side out of play off the tee. (I’m a lefty)

Best of luck with your new driver, and keep updating with your progress with it.
