Re: What'd You Shoot Today? (Golf BBV Thread)

I canít remember my score but I know it wasnít good and I know I froze my arse off because I had to weight on every tee behind the two slowest most inconsiderate arseholes in the world, I watched one of them take ten or more practice swings on the tee.
But on to the slightly interesting course Northwick Park Itís nine famous holes recreated in a corner of a London suburb it was in great condition but I donít think you would be able to tell which hole you were supposed to be playing without the score card and sadly they have really crammed them in there if they used a bit more space they might have been more appealing and felt more authentic.

Re: What'd You Shoot Today? (Golf BBV Thread)

Camarillo Springs Golf: 43-46 (89). Only my 4th round under 90, could have been much better but left 4 putts an inch short of the hole.

This was a couple days after shooting a 103 at Los Serranos where I wasted about 6 shots in sand traps, as they have a couple British Open-sized bunkers that I got into and had to punch out backwards to get out of after wasting 4 shots inside. I hate the sand.

Re: What'd You Shoot Today? (Golf BBV Thread)

43 today on 9 sloppy and windy holes. 3 different holes had shots sink into the green so deep I had to use a my divot tool to dig the ball out of the ground.

Re: What'd You Shoot Today? (Golf BBV Thread)

played for the first time in 2 months. it's been a nice 55 degrees over here for the past 2 days. squeezed in 9 holes in twilight (after 2pm).

started out well enough, with a bogey on the first hole (including a sand shot). 1-putt for bogey on second. missed a par putt on third, though it was probably the best played hole of the day for me. #4 is where things went seriously downhill, where my short game disappeared. on #5 i hit a gir, but four-putted. had a pretty good shot at the par-3 #6, but pulled it and then three-putted. on #7, hit the best drive of the day but proceeded to fat like 3 approach shots. on #8 par-3 went against my better judgement and hit one club lower than i should have (stupid). on #9 i hit my longest drive of the day which didn't draw, recovered with a gir, then three-putted.

all in all, pretty good day after a 2 month layoff, but definitely frustrating. i am starting to rethink/revisit some of my decisions, trying to manage the course better. anyone have any suggestions for books/articles?

Re: What'd You Shoot Today? (Golf BBV Thread)

Shot 120 a while ago, forgot to mention. My drives were hooking like a fat chick on broadway but I was raping the putts. They didn't struggle too much. I 2-putt like 7 holes, 3 putt 10 holes, and 4-putt once. Not bad for like my fifth time ever golfing.

Re: What'd You Shoot Today? (Golf BBV Thread)

This does not sound that bad. Well its better than working.

Yesterdays round was interesting to say the least. 42-43 I played really well (for me).

2 friends didnt show up and they grouped us w/ a Tiger Woods look alike.
1st tee is a down wind (18 mph) 317 dog leg right. Im usually the big hitter in my group averageing 275. I was first up pull driver and hit my power fade that lands ~20 yards from the green. My friend (who is right there w/ me) hits a ball that goes dead straight through the fairway 80 yards out. Tiger look alike 6'2" pure muscle. Pulls 3 wood and lands it on the green I roll my eyes knowing Im going to be hitting my aproach shots first most of the day. Anyways I was even par on the par 5s with an 8 on one. Had one tripple one penalty stroke and 1 3 put all day (all on the same hole) with 30 puts total (13 on the front).

A couple questions about the rules that courses can impose.

The 15th hole, 520 par 5, was a 90 degree dog leg right with water running down the right side of the fairway splitting the fairway in 2. You hit your drive into the left fairway then hit your second shot across the water to the 2nd fairway. A sign on the tee box said "Any ball hit to the right of the water is out of bounds." This is because it would be possible to hit your tee shot over the 14th green and cut 200 yards off the hole. Well all 3 of us know we can hit a big fade starting down the 1st fairway and getting it into the 2nd fairway which is right of the water. The ball flight will not be over the 14th green. It is about 250 to cary the watter but the wind was going left to right and a little bit helping so it was actually a pretty easy shot. We all agreed that the sign is BS because you are allowed to hit through OB if you wind up back on the correct hole. And we were not endangering any players by taking this route. My friend hit first he double crossed himself and wound up in the 1st fairway (how the hole is ment to be played). Tiger look alike hit a big fade and lands it around the 150 in the 2nd fair way. I do the same and have 170 out.

Is there any way the course can inforce the rule that our shots were out of bounds when we were both in the fairway of the correct hole?

Re: What'd You Shoot Today? (Golf BBV Thread)

My question is regarding the 16th hole not 15th. There is a sign on the tee box that says anything right of the water is out of bounds. But the hole is a 90degree dog leg right. With the wind yesterday we all agreed that the sign is BS because if we are in the fairway of the correct hole it can not be OB. So we all tried hit a large fade that wound up on the right side of the water.

But here is a picture to better describe it.



Right of the pond on the right side of the fairway leading to the 16th green is the 15th green.

Our balls started out on the left side of the water and faded over the water into the fairway leading to the green. They were never over the 15th green. They planted a bunch of trees lining the right side of the tee box so that you can not aim straight right (over the 15th green). You have to aim down the fairway going from the tee box.

Local rules are still rules and if you had been playing in a competition Iím sure the club would disqualify all three of you.
It is annoying to be told you canít play the hole optimally and must shoot a worse score then you potentially could have but the course needs to protect its self from liability. They canít have people firing over the fifteenth green and if the rule stated you could shape fades off the tee I think a lot of optimistic high handicappers would give it a go and end up blocking, pushing and slicing shots over the fifteenth green.
the course I played in the above post had a sign on the second tee ďirons onlyĒ it was a shortish par 4 and would have been a lot easier if I could have taken a fairway wood and I wasnít happy with the rule but abided by it.
