Sorry to hear that , we are starting up out match play event next weekend and I am having to give 10 strokes to start with , if I could fine tune my irons before then I’ll feel very confident in a victory in my first match . The tee ball is fantastic , putter and chipping have really come around with the Bermuda growing in . I’m excited to start out with confidence and a great feeling . 
 
One of my playing partners won the whole match event last  year and we typically feed off one another .

that is one nice thing about the scratch league, no strokes given

Yes, I'm trying to whittle my cap back down to around +1 to 1 , in order to compete in the same type of league at my home course, as well. The match play that I mentioned earlier is an event sponsored by our course. I made it to the last four men (semi finals) last year and hope to take it all the way this year. we have four different men's leagues ( one being the scratch league), that I'm  trying to navigate too. So that leaves me having to pick and choose which  to play in. Anyway, good luck in the future!

those interclub matches, IMO are a real bonus of membership for me, I am happy to see your course and area do similar events as we do. We have 4 different men's leagues as well, Men's scratch (I call this the flat belly league) Senior men's scratch (round bellies) Men's handicap (open to anyone but usually played in the later afternoon so working guys can play) then Senior handicap (usually played anywhere from 11am to 1pm). So lots of options available. Usually an "A" division and a "B" division, highest point team from "B" moves to "A" and vice versa so there is incentive to play well as the "A" division usually gives you better competition. It is cheap and allows us to play 4 or 5 different clubs in the area and we get dinner or lunch after the round, it is just a really good system as far as I am concerned. 

In our case at our club we dont have many "scratch" players so a 2.2 index that you have would probably make the scratch league. One of our clubs in the area have 40 players with scratch or better indexes so yes, they have a strong team lol...

Wtg on the eagle @birdiesandbags !!!

Today was a first on many levels for me playing golf...

I played a local benefit scramble tournament today and was part of a 4 man team from the PD, just one team of many from work. There were 55 teams total iirc across 8 departments participating. We'll over 200 players. 2 of the guys I work with are newer to golf, and the one is a coworker on my sqaud, they are 25 hcps Avg

We started out with birdie birdie, then 1 team mate hit for an eagle.

i had 2 natural birdies and a natural eagle!!! 465 yd par 5. Caught the downhill side of what should have been a nasty ob hook, and it kicked right and rolled 30 more yards into the middle of the fairway.  165 to pin, hit a low straight shot with the 4hy, and it rolled 4 feet from the pin. They let me putt for the eagle.

We placed 9th overall, but with hcp adjustments took 3rd at the final tally!!!

Got my 1st golf trophy too!

Since it was a charity event, naturally we bought a few mulligans,  and a ton of raffle tickets for bonus things like throw the ball, drop a stroke, etc.

We only ended up using 2 mulligans and 3 throw a ball. We had to declare it to the tee Marshall before we teed off on the par 3s ans par 5s. We forgot about the drop a stroke tickets though!

One of the guys used a throw a ball ticket after coming up short on a par 3 (186yards) he was 20 feet from the pin, and I came up short too off the drive. He underhand tossed it and it rolled into the cup. While not a technical ACE, on the card it was!!!

The DB performed very well, sinking 10 of the 18 holes we played!

Overall it was a great day, I'm slightly over heated as it reached 91⁰ out, even though I stayed plenty hydrated.

Good morning to everyone. It’s a beautiful morning in South Carolina. I will  be playing at Fox Creek in Hartsville South Carolina where the fairways are wide open but the greens can be so so at times. Hope everyone who plays hits them well. 

Law enforcement officer that loves to play golf at any course I can. When I travel my clubs are always with me.

Got out with my oldest son yesterday afternoon to play 9 and we had a great time. Save for two holes, I played a very solid round and shot a 47. The reason I say this was a very solid round is because that 47 included two triples, including the 1st hole. Early on I was topping everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, with woods. Thankfully, iron striking was solid throughout the round. I had 2 three putts, both on the triple bogey holes. So I played +5 through the other 7 holes. Some highlights from the round:

  • On hole 2, 176 yard 6 iron into the wind to pin high just off the green
  • On hole 3, flushed 8 iron 161 yards but slight overdraw and missed the green right, again pin high
  • On hole 7, 251 yard drive but again over drawn, ended up next to a stump. Punched it forward with a 6 iron and was just off the 14 green but a good look at the green on 7. Arguably best shot execution next with a 3H where I hit a high draw that ended up just off the back of the fringe. 52* chip to 1 foot to save par.
  • On hole 8, 257 yard draw to middle of fairway, 3/4 swing 60* to 15 feet, left birdie putt short 2' for par
  • On hole 9, 253 yard drive, slight over draw that kicked down a bank. 6 iron punch to the fairway, 30 yard 60* to the green, 40' lag putt to 2' bogey

A lot of good to take away from the round, and just continuing to work on ball striking and consistency to avoid the blow up holes. I am feeling confident that by peak season, I can be consistently shooting in the low 40s and am aiming to break 40/80 on 9/18 holes this summer 😈

Love reading these posts!  Keep growing ,keep pushing!

Subbed in a league last night and shot 45 with a 9.  A 9!  Pin high in my third shot on a par 5 buy in some absolutely gnarly super deep awful rough.  First hack was essentially whiff and the ball settled in even more.  Hack two results in the classic deep rough hosel grab and a dead left to behind the green where I'm short sided.  Tow bad chips and and two putts later and I am on the way to the next tee with a quadruple bogey.  😂

Played ok. 20-30mph winds so I worked on lower, penetrating shots. I was successful!

I’m liking my improvement. Numbers were pretty high at the start of the season. I still have work to do. But not too bad today!

I could play golf every day and learn something new each time.

I played this afternoon and didn't have a terrible round but wasn't great either. I keep reminding myself that I am making a major overhaul with my swing and I'm going to have bad shots. No doubles on the card but plenty of bogies and missed opportunities. 

I have another lesson in the morning and then weather permitting, a round in the afternoon. 

I am excited for the changes and see the pluses, but man I wish my middle name was patience. Haha.
