How'd you play?

Recommended Posts

Stableford today. Played super super aggressive with a fellow 1 handicapper and between us managed 11 birdies and 3 eagles. Still 5 points back off the leader dont think I’ll bother with Comps or medals any longer unless it’s scratch or a low handicap bracket. 
 

also started slicing driver and pulling 5 woods after 10 holes. Bit strange will head to a launch monitor try figure out why.

That makes more sense. Here I am thinking your playing from the tips. Blue is my courses tips at 6700, then, white at 6300, and gold 5700 senior tees, then red at 5000 womens. 

I wish courses would use some sort of standard for tee box color designations.  Our course:  Black is the tips, Gold is standard men's tees (although not supposed to call it men's tees anymore). Blue is seniors, White is forward tees (formerly known as women's tees), and we recently added red tees forward of the whites.  We also have ratings for combinations of the tees.  Here's our scorecards for our 18 and 9 holes courses.  We have a different scorecard when we play the original course which is 1-4, 12-18, and then 1-9 of the Oaks course.

75’, low humidity & slight breeze @ 8:00am.  Greens were flat & smooth!!  Started off bad with 2 bogies that could have been doubles if not for long rescue putts.  1 birdie helped keep things from getting away for a 40.

played the Senior Tees which is now standard for the Wednesday group.  This group is the more serious of the group’s I play with and it’s more competitive and has a little “edge” to it.  It’s definitely a lot of fun.

Couldn't agree more. Some courses have odd colors. Myrtle Beach has a lot of courses where you got to figure things out. Wild Wing had Dark Teal, Magenta, White and light teal. Caledonia had different types of ducks as markers. Pintail, Mallard, Wood Duck, and Red Head. What the heck do I know about ducks. It took a few holes before we realized we were playing from the wrong duck! Rivers Edge has Gold as the tips, Black, White, Green, Blue is the women's But what is interesting on their score card is that it has the handicap range assigned to a color. Which is a great idea but according to my handicap I should be playing the tips. But no way can I play a 7000 yard course at my age and carry distances and shoot in the low 70's. 

Sure would be nice for some consistency across courses.

Yep, one of the munis in our area has Purple, Green, Yellow, Silver, and others to designate their tees.  I never know from one course to the next.  Played many times in MB -- I know what you're talking about.  Yeah, 7000 yards would be a beast for me at my age, as well.

Too many double bogies and really just not a great swinging day in general. My chipping was really good and that saved me on several holes.

Need to figure out how to relax a bit more and be loose in the morning. I get so tight, in my lower body especially, that my swing is not very free flowing and smooth until I get more loose from walking. I started to hit the ball a lot better toward the middle-end of the round, despite the scores.

Is a warm-up range bucket an option?  

For me, when no range option, having the Orange Whip in the bag is golden for getting loose.

hmmmmm....  one idea is to park a mile from the course and walk the rest of the way!!   🤪

I would like to get in an early morning 9 a few times per week but we have a daily 7:00 status meeting I need to have laptop / internet access for so I can't cheat and do it from the 7th tee!

I usually hit about 20 balls before the round. I also have the SKLZ Gold Flex trainer that I've been using. 

I might just need to commit 10 more minutes to warming up with the Rypstick and go through a few swings on each side. Of all of the things I've used to warm up, doing a slightly lighter volume SuperSpeed or Rypstick seems to help the most because it gets the heart rate up a bit.

Yeah, what grinds me about them is the way they happened. No. 1 was a cruddy three-putt after three pretty poor shots to open the round. Nos. 7 and 16 I smoked tree branches trying to get back out to the fairway to play to save par/bogey. Wasted shots.

At least 13 was a double because I hit the ball out of bounds off the tee. I can sort of live with that.

Beginning to realize why Scott Fawcett puts so much emphasis on the "Tiger 5" when you start out his DECADE stuff. If you par the par fives and don't make doubles anywhere, you will eventually shoot a really good score, and your OK scores are still perfectly fine.

You hear him talk about that initially and it sounds so simple and you think you are doing everything right and then you look at those 5 metrics and see how much work you really need to do.

Played a quick after work 9 yesterday. Decided to play from the tips because it's a shorter(ish) course. 3100 from the tips for the 9 we played. Shot a 46 with two 3 putts (1st hole and 6th hole) and a triple bogey on 5 due a lost ball, and poor short game.

You know my short game is poor when my wife comments on it. I'm happy with how I am hitting the ball for lack of practice time, but the poor short game is really showing. We are on vacation with the in-laws for two weeks, so I hope to take advantage of the ready and willing baby sitters to find practice time and gain the confidence back with my wedges.

For me I only hit about 10-15 balls just to get feel for my swing, not trying to wear myself or fix anything out before even starting.
Then just chip and putt until is time to tee off.

Same strategy here...I m pretty sure I only have so many swings in me per day and I don't want to run out at the end of a round by hitting too many range balls prior to playing.  Just enough to get loose and hear some bone pops then practice the first tee shot to see the flight pattern i need to play.
