How'd you play?


MmmmmmBuddy

Recommended Posts

today was a good day on the course

only 3 temporary greens and the other 15 greens were pure, smooth and fast, I sent the superintendent a text to thank him so much. 

Today I played from the forward tees, right up front, for some reason it freed up my swing and was super comfortable. 

I am trying to figure out the "why" behind the freed up feeling and will be looking forward to tomorrow to see if I can take some of those feelings to the "regular" tees.

I am a real believer in, you can't get any better sitting on the couch, and today I am glad I got off the couch.

Do you think it's because there is "less" trouble from the front tees?  I played up a set this past week and felt like that as well.

How much did the forward tees impact your club selection off the tee?  Same clubs as normal or back off to hit to the same spots as the back tees?   Maybe you were just at distances that were more comfortable for you?

good morning Josh, same trouble on most holes and different trouble on other holes, was your experience because of less trouble? it was fun to try "different" lines off the tee and I think that "freed" me up a bit.

Great question, 1-3-5-6-7-8-9-13-14-15-17-18 all the same however 5-7-8-10-12-14-15-18 were much shorter clubs on the approach shot which got me closer to the pin, I birdied 9-10-11-12, missed a 5 footer for 5 in a row, then finished with birdies on 17-18. shot 30 on the back side. Really interested in today's round.

I’m guessing that you were more comfortable because you were playing shorter clubs into the greens which based on past posts are clubs you practice frequently and since shorter clubs generally lead to closer proximity; which you got based on the quote, resulted in that more comfortable feeling.

Mentally less trouble.... yes, probably so.  The white tees on my course tend to be from a different location (sight line) than the blue and gold tees.  Takes a few of the trees that I tend to try and hit out of my sight which gets me thinking less about those dang things!

After a few weeks off due to varying ailments, I got back out on Tuesday and shot a nice 77 with 3 lip outs- then today was an 86 after a +11 front- needless to say, one should not wear your ski parka just because it’s 43°

Played some simulator golf today on Pinehurst. Shot an 83 with 9 par. Was a fun way to celebrate the birthday especially with 40° and showers today. Driver was working well too.

Played a couple holes on Cabot as well. Video is a drive on Cabot

Absolutely was. New placed they put in with Pickleball and the simulators. It’s on the expensive side, but absolutely a good time. May try to get some friends together for a monthly simulator league there.

I bet the location would jump on that if they don't already have one going!  

I have yet to play a round on a simulator but plan on building my addition sometime this next year hopefully.

Shot an even 100 today at Country Club of New Bedford. I can’t complain - I got to play golf in December. After having not touched a club in a month and a half, just being out there was a blast. Left the face open too much, forgot how to hit bunker shots, and had 39 putts (those greens are no joke, it’s like putting on tilted glass half the time). Doesn’t matter - had a great time with my bud and some of his family. It’s like a bonus round at this point in the year.

Today's round was sub par. Im glad we were playing team games because the front nine was a ton of off and on shots. Back 9 was much better and helped my partner out on several holes.  It was just one of those days...

It was one of those days that I felt like my game was in a fog....it turns out I was!!  It was supposed to be a nice day, 60* and partly cloudy.  They were close, we got to 49* and the partly cloudy never left ground level.  You could see the ball for about 50 yards and then nothing.  We all were hitting them pretty straight and nobody in our 3-some lost a ball in the 9 holes we played.  I ended up +2 with a couple lipouts so I was very happy.  The Edison wedges continue to impress!! 

This was not a morning fog but at about 2:30 in the afternoon....

My group cancelled on me because it was too wet so I made a tee time for myself to get out and pay since it was 70* today.  When I got to the course the starter told me to head to the first tee to get ahead of some groups.   Not a big warmup person but I like to hit a few pitches and roll some putts.  

Didn't start well; topped my first tee shot so I hit another one and topped it again.  Decided it was going to be a practice round!.   Went to hit my approach and topped another one.   Next shot was hit well and flew the green.    chopped on and one putted.    Topped the tee shot on 2,  topped the next shot, and then finally started hitting the ball acceptably.   Didn't top another shot until the 10th tee 🙂  

Short game wasn't too bad;  just need to make sure I finish the swing and don't fall back onto my trail foot.

I played this afternoon with my normal group and added one more.  Overall it was a decent round.  I'm actually seeing my driver have a slight draw and better elevation.  It is and will be a work in progress for some time but happy to see positives.  

Ended up 7 over with a couple poor holes where I had to punch out to the fairway to clear a path to the green but did have a birdie and a few putts that I left 6-10 in short for birdie as well.  

Weather was perfect and sitting right at 70 degrees with a little bit of wind.

Played really bad today. Shot 85 when I normally shoot 75ish. Nothing was in sync. Just one of those days where I woke up a different player than the day before. Just lost standing over the ball. All in my head. Zero golf mojo. Humbling, frustrating, disconcerting......all the things....

I hate those days. Especially when playing back to back days.

Likely played my last round of the year today (I live near Philly). Was 50 degrees and had rained since last night. Wet but not soaked. Ended up shooting a personal best of -1 70 (par 71). A good day to know your distances as there wasn’t much rollout or spin with the damp greens so pin hunting was in order. Thrilled with my score but this shot was the highlight: Par 3. 153 yards. 9 iron. Closest to a hole in one I've ever been.

The golf gods urged me to play today. I had to appease them.
Got to the course at 8:30 and it was empty. I only saw two other groups out. A twosome walking and a threesome riding. Played the front well with my usual no warm up. Two birdies and 1 bogey on the front. Back 9 was interesting. 12th hole par 3, I shanked a 7 iron. Now I’m short right. Branches overhead and a trap in front of me to a front pin location. I ran one up the left side of the front of the green missing the trap by a foot. Just what I was trying to do. But it didn’t stop and rolled off the back of the green. Then hit a flop shot and holed it and somehow walked away with par.  Then birdie, then a par then another birdie. Fast forward to 18 which is a par 5 with an island green. I’m sitting at 2 under for the back at this point. I hit a good drive then followed  with a good 5 hybrid to within 10 yards of the river. All that is left is a 60 yard shot over the river to the pin on the island green. With birdie on my mind and sitting in the middle of the fairway (which is hard pan now in this section) I freaking thinned it. Across the river, across the green, and down the left side into the water hazard. Took my drop, pitched on and drained the putt for a 6.

All in all a good day with two sand saves thrown in. Totaled out with a 2 under round of 70. But no matter how good the day was you remember the screw up on 18 and what could have been a 68 or 69. 

But just happy I’m still playing golf in December and it was 73 degrees.

Glad to see some at least get out and play in December, even if the results were not "mid-season" form or perfect. All I can do up here at this time is for a dry day over 42 degrees for one local course that stays open to be playable.

Rained last night and all morning today.  We had an 8:30 tee time, but my wife moved it to 11:45 which was when the rain was supposed to stop.  I wasn't going to play; still resting my sore right knee, but I wanted to keep her company.  The rain actually quit shortly after noon, so we waited until 12:20pm, and I decided to play.  We finished at 3:20pm

Birdied the 1st hole!!  Then reality set in.  I had 7 bogeys, one double and a triple for an 84, but I managed to turn things around ending with 6 straight pars when the sun finally came out.  Oddly enough, my knee never really hurt to play, but distance was down for all clubs; very humid, wet fairways and standing water on both fairways and some greens.  I have an 8:30am appointment tomorrow with the Ortho doc for x-ray/MRI and discuss replacement.

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

Likely played my last round of the year today (I live near Philly). Was 50 degrees and had rained since last night. Wet but not soaked. Ended up shooting a personal best of -1 70 (par 71).

I had the more fun playing golf today than I have in years. No pain - shoulder and knee fully recovered - and a ball that responded the way I wanted it to! What a concept, aim at a spot, hit the ball with a little draw in the swing and have the ball go to that spot! It has been a long time since that happened. Putting, yeah well that should have been better - 4 three putts 😬- pitching was pretty good, chipping so so. Driving hit 11 of twelve fairways!

Shot of the day was a 153 yard 8 iron on a 10 degree down hill side hill lie. Ball flight took me out over a pond to an elevated green with a dead straight shot that rolled up for a ten inch birdie putt! 

I owe the day to the Lagshot system I have been using for about 2 weeks. I am going to write up the official unofficial review of the LagShots this weekend.
