How'd you play?

I went out Thursday evening after work and shot a 102 (55) (47). Weather was beautiful, I had a tough front nine, had been a month since I had been out but got better as the round went. I had a 1 foot birdie putt on 17 that I missed being above the hole. I have switched putters and now playing with the Odyssey 11 in which i like alot better than the Cleveland Huntington beach 8 I had been playing for past 2 years. They are different putters but I can already see some improving over it from just 1 round. Going back out Sunday with our group so hope to improve even more and get ready for warmer weather and playing more.

I ran the game today. 5, 4 man teams of mixed handicaps. Score 1 net ball on the par 3s. Score 4 net balls on the par 4s, and score 3 on the net 5s. Told the guys who were whining about the scoring matrix that they had to try today. That they couldn't sit back and coast on the hard par 4 holes as their score had to be counted. They grumbled a bit and then we moved on. I had a bad first 6 holes. Guess my mind was still on the pre game meeting. 3 doubles and 4 3 putts. Stopped and watched my MGI roll down the parking lot from 18 to 1 (we started on 12) and decided there and then that today my game was not going to auger into the ground. For the next 12 holes I shot nothing higher than a bogie and sunk 3 birdies.  39-44 for a reasonable 83. The VERY best part of today was I may have solved a major portions of my chipping and pitching issues in the long grass. I had nearly all of my chips and pitch shots go where they were intended to go and stop within a foot or from their intended final stop point. I stood there visibly stunned the first time my chip shot popped out of that horrible heavy grass, traveled toward the pin and came to rest about a foot past. It has not done that for me since before overseeding.

Another decent day on the course.   Got some winter golf in up in the mountains and I broke 70 again.   😉  on a par 60.   +9 on the day with much more good than bad.   I hit a lot of good shots today and very few truly bad ones. The highlight of the day was this 134 yard blind approach for a tap in birdie.   Feeling good about the way the year has started.

Terrible weather today, so played the St Andrews Old Course on a sim this afternoon with a friend. New clubs were just feeling dialled, shot a -2. Certainly easier to do on a sim, but felt happy with that anyway (and for reference, my friend shot 19 over). New irons just feel so easy to hit a number, and they're so damn workable

So a surprise 9 happened at 5:30pm. Found out it was a family friend's birthday so I took him to the course and he had a great time. We loosely kept score as we walked the course and shot the 🤫. It was a good time, swing felt good, wedges were on point and putting was acceptable considering it wasn't at all serious. We had another guy jump on our tee who was cool as well and overall it was just a fun round.IMG20240218185059.jpg.7c3bcb1a941013863bf96226b6536c14.jpg

This is awesome!  I too wish we had a night course! I'd even be okay with a par 3 course only for it! I'd actually be a bit skeered of using the driver/woods at night.

It was actually my first time heading there at night and it was a great time. It was my first since since I started where I really went to "knock some around." There are only some smaller issues about light placement that made it hard to catch where the ball travelled from the tee so driver/woods were not even a thought. 

Beginner golfer, looking for all suggestions and advice. Golf is supposed to be fun... I think 🤔

Same here. Hopefully the 8" will be gone by Thurs with 40-55* forecasted.

We only got 2 inches and it's almost gone. Supposed to be 55 on Wednesday. Going to a simulator Wednesday to hit some balls before we leave for Arizona.

Got a ton of practice in at the range today, see practice post) then skated out for 18. Front nine was awesome for me after the range time. 12 GIR, even after a couple of disappointing tee shots. 9 pars, 4 birdies, 2 bogeys, 3 doubles. Back 9 was definitely more difficult.  Either fatigue or more water holes, or both. Still shot 90, and ok with that considering... this is hole 4 on the back 9, 175y par 3. One of the windiest holes consistently here.

I went 3w and wind knocked it back easily 10 yards.   Caught the front hill and rolled back onto water.  Used driver next, landed front edge of rough, rolled 15 yards onto the green. 2 putted from 25'. Bad double Bogey.  My buddy hit driver, knocked a sky rocket, landed and rolled out 15 feet from the pin. 

New swing dynamics worked well for me today. The DB was on fire!!! Only a couple of 1 putts, the rest were 2 putts. Lagged the ball within a foot or less everytime though

Well today the round was...there. Drove the ball well, hit my full swing approach shots well, and putted very well. The problem is/was when I drive the ball well I end up on nearly all of the par 4s inside 100 yards. My full swing 58 degree lob wedge is good for 95 to 97 yards, when it finally hits the ground. Most of the time I expect to see it has ice on it from the altitude. Inside 95 yards I am pitching. Today, as my father used to so ineloquently put it, I couldn't hit a bull in the ass with a base fiddle! I have been working on re-learning the Dave Pelz finesse swing. Made good contact with the ball, but without a great deal of finesse. When I tell people I am hooking I WANT to be talking about fishing  with my friend Red for sockeye salmon up at his place on the Kenai river in Alaska. Not watching my ball take a no crap left turn as it clears the sand traps on it way to dramatically missing the 17th green.  Two of those hooks cost me 5 strokes on two of the par 5s. The non-finesse finesse swing cost me at least 3 strokes for being long on three other holes. 

Inside of 15 yards the short chips and floppy type shots were spot on so the practice is paying off...slowly. Anyway is was a fine warm day to be out walking the course. I didn't loose any balls, and I start it all over again on Wednesday.

Heyo!

Did a sim round this morning. On the front nine I was +9 with a 45. I felt like I was playing some of the smartest golf that I’ve played in a while, regardless that it was a sim course. Then I fell apart on the back nine with a 54, ending with a 99.

Ouch.

I jarred my wrist in the shop the other day, so that wasn’t helping, but that doesn’t really account for  hitting it out of bounds twice on one hole. I’m thinking I need to keep some better brain food in my bag.

Ah well, I’ll be back in the saddle later this week, and we’ll see how I do.

Played round 2 of 2024 yesterday and there definitely a few cobwebs that need to get dislodged and cleaned up. Driver was working well minus a couple errant tee shots. Was hitting the 4-wood pure. Approach shots were like throwing darts left handed (but I’m right handed). A few found the target but no consistency at all. Chipping and putting saved the day but putting on dormant greens is tough. Had two putts near 100’ and felt good walking away with a 3 putt. Won’t get to play again outside for a spell but hoping this spring like weather will start waking up the grass soon.

Got out yesterday for an afternoon 9. Ball striking was solid tee to green but I only had 2 good looks for birdie, converting one. The double was from a power lip out on a downhill 4 footer that ended up about 10 feet, which I missed. Not scoring but not sloppy like my other two rounds so far this year. I’ll take it.

Had my second lesson today, everything is right where it needs to be. We focused on the longer bag today, starting with the 6i moving through the 5/4 into the 5 wood and last the driver. We’ve determined shafts to be a culprit of forcing me to not turn as much to prevent the left miss, just being too soft. That was encouraging, 4/5 iron gapping isn’t quite enough to warrant the 4 iron so we’ll move into more of a “GI” 4 or 3 iron for approaches into greens. The 5 wood we tweaked the stance ever so slightly more narrow with toes pointing out a bit, we were getting great 250/260 carry with 280 totals, and the driver came up to 176 swing speed with 295/300 carries, spin was a touch high between 2700-3100 but I’m going to shift the 14g weight forward on the Paradym, to see if that will drop a touch. I have league play tonight at our local SIM Lounge for another 3.5 hours. 
 

Love this game!
