How'd you play?


MmmmmmBuddy

Recommended Posts

Had a dreadful start with a double and a +5 🤕.  Shot a 49 front.  Gained a little momentum on the back 9 paring 5 of the first 7.  Just needed to par the 18th to break 90.  Drive scooted right.  Was placed about 20 yards behind a tree but about 180 out from the green.  Lots of water between the tree thats in front of me and the green (Carry to the green would be approx 170).  I had 2 options, 1) Hero play and try punch low under the tree while also carry the water to hit the green, or 2) Safe PW lay up hitting over the tree and further into the fairway.  For the first time i played it safe with the PW.....shanked the hell out of my PW, ball soars into the water 😔.  Ended up double bogey for 91.   Definitely questioning my decision after that one, hahaha.  I guess the safe-SAFE play would have been to punch out 20-30 yards to the fairway???  haha oh well...thats GOLF 👍

One for @CarlH...shot another 84 43/41. However, with my hdcp, I'm happy with it. Unfortunately it started to sprinkle on 12, we holed out and my partners bailed. Then it opened up, not a hard rain, just steady but because I thought I was playing well I gutted it out. 2 putted for bogey on 18 because the first putt had to go through a puddle, but it was right on line.

For the second time in 3 days I have my bag disassembled in the basement drying everything out. 

I don’t understand paying for a round and leaving before it be due to a little rain. Get your money’s worth. Grit it out. Learn to play in adverse conditions. Get a rain suit. Glad you gutted it out. That happened to me a month ago but part of it was like buckets coming down. Made for a different round.

We're members, so it doesn't cost us any more than we've paid for the membership ($200 for 2 years). I've only walked off twice in the 2.5 years I've been playing there. Once because it would have been a 7 hour round according to one of the other guys cart GPS and the other was last Sunday when it was torrential rain and they ended up closing the course. I left after 6.5 holes because it was so bad.

8:00 am Tee Time this morning. Driver & irons were real good BUT putting was horrible.  This course changed a while back to “Tif Eagle” greens and are supposed to be drought and disease resistant, all I can figure is they are Birdie resistant!!  None of us made a putt and that’s rare. Course was a little wet with a few holes CPO 
Shot a +5, 41 with a stupid double on 1st hole. 

Iron striking has improved greatly last couple times out.  The ProV1x were flying high and stopping quickly, beautiful thing!

I three putted the first green and it didn't get much better for the remaining 17 holes.  Just out of sync, not really focused, and the results show.  Shot an 85 that felt more like a 95.  Mostly just mental errors, although I was really struggling with ball contact today.  Although our round was under 4 hours, it felt longer because we were waiting on an incredibly slow 3-some in front of us who seem oblivious that anyone else was on the course.

I just feel sorry for @The Hat after that round. 

Don't feel sorry for him...he leaks. Or maybe he was crying, but my head was getting wet either way.

You be quiet, at least you were somewhat dry, I was soaked! And it wasn't tears or rain dropping on your head...you made me mad by staying out there.

Still on a high. I don't have a hole-in-one, but a fairway eagle from 160 is pretty exhilarating. 

That is insane man!! What a thrill to get up there and see the ball in the cup.
