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

85 on the Desert course at Primm on Monday. I drove pretty well all day except for spraying 2 tee shots severely right.

The first one went into a waste area on 14 and I took my medicine with a drop and a double bogey.

The 2nd one was equally bad on the par 4 17th but it went so far right I ended up with a blind, but straight, 170 yard shot from the 10th fairway. I hit it straight but to the right side of the green. Since the shot was blind I immediately ran up after the ball as soon as I hit it to try to see where it would end up. I didn't see it land but my first view of the ball was after a severe and very lucky kick to the left off the side of a hill on the right side of the green. By the time I saw the ball it was slowly rolling closer and closer to the pin and I drained a 5 footer for birdie. I deserved a bogey, but luck can't always be bad.

For an August afternoon in the Mojave it was a nice sub 100 degree afternoon - pretty windy but not impossible.

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

Shot a 47 on a 36 two days ago. I scrambled great, got up and down a couple of times, but my long irons and anything off the tee was pretty much horrible.

Could have been much worse, considering I hadn't even picked up clubs in almost 3 months.

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

This from yesterday, but played a Beat the Pro with the ladies club at my sister course and shot 66, walking in the Southern California heat, par 71 and dropping back a group after each 3 hole stretch to play with all the groups. One woman tied me net no one beat me. Probably gonna shoot 80 next time I play, I was in New York for the last week without clubs, fitness center, etc. so no practice of any kind for like 10 days.

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

I'm going to play Whitehawk Ranch tomorrow. It's at altitude, so hopefully this won't be too much of a problem:

Rating/Slope
------------
TEE________MEN_____WOMEN__YARDAGE
Four Hawk__72.6/133 _________6927
Three Hawk_70.3/123 74.6/141_6457
Two Hawk___66.5/115 70.6/132_5673
One Hawk___62.9/105 65.4/122_4816

It did remind me of the "white tees" thread, though, as I'll give Three Hawks a shot. 66.5/115 seems pretty neutered (although it's not like I'd shoot even par or anything).

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

Played Member-Guest with my dad at Fairvue Plantation in Gallatin, TN.

Brag: best ball - shot 82 on Thursday (I was rated an 18 for this tourney as I don't have official HC); our team netted out to 61, which put us in second place after round 1; after the scrambled drive round 2 on Friday (net 67), we were 3 shots back in third

Beat: best ball - shot 103 on Saturday's final round 3; our team netted out to 73; finished 5th

Variance: see brag and beat above; 2 birds in a row on Thursday (net eagles); carded a triple on Friday on a par 3 (scrambled drive!), followed by a net eagle on a par 4

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

Paiute Wolf 36 today. Nothing really working well, had to scramble almost all day.

55-58-113
52-59-111

Second round I cost myself 6 shots jacking around trying to hit driver which I never do. Irritating. A far cry from my 51-50 here a few weeks ago where my ball striking was real good for me all day.

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

88. Worst ballstriking round all year by far and nothing I did seemed to help. Hit exactly 4 greens in regulation, 1 on the back nine. If I hadn't had six one putt greens on the back it would have been VERY ugly.

At least two of the four greens I hit were par 3s and I won a few bucks for being closest to the pin.

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

Played Pebble Creek in NJ on Friday. Really enjoyed the course, although I think I could have made a couple better decisions if it hadn't been my first time there.

Birdied the toughest hole on the course (#8-par 5) and shot a 41 on the front. Not talking about the back.

Putted real well today with 35 putts that could've even been like 32 or 31. Also went to the range early to try and implement some advice I had gotten into my swing. Despite trying to change my swing, I did reasonably well today and was happy with how things went. I'd guess it'll take several more rounds to get fully comfortable with the adjustments (more weight on right foot, less upper body movement).

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

Playing really well lately, had a medal competition, got there late(ish) so didnt have enough time to warm up.
Started pretty bad, bogied first 3 holes, but then played well, was 4 over on the 17th tee. 3 putted on 17 and bogied the last, so was a bit dissapointed.

lost on countback, sucks.

my handicap was 12.2, par is 70 and standard scratch was 69.
(i shot 76)
what will my handicap get cut too?

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

I honestly don't believe that anybody reads anyone else's posts in this thread but whatever. Finally conquered my nemesis, Sunridge Canyon near Scottsdale. Shot a 2-under 33 on the back nine, two birdies and seven effortless pars and could have actually been a lot lower. 73 for the round.

Best part was, we got a comp and we took $20 from the other guys, winning a net of four ways overall in our $5 Nassau. Free golf + winning money + good round = good time.

EDIT: main reason for this post is that I've been a 1-3 HDCP for the past few years but have never broken 80 in like 15 tries on this course. It's harder than hell (72.6/142 from the back tees, which is where we played from today). Only used my driver once - mauled a drive on 16 which helped me get home in two on the par 5.

Very nice course...hacked around to 93, 44-49. Highlight of the front was 3-putt bogeying 4 out of five holes over the stretch of 4-8.

We played Coyote Moon in Truckee on Sunday, and the starter said it was wide open, so go whenever we felt like it. I said WTF and played the blues, which were 6704

I started par-bogey-bogey.
I started the back nine par-par.
I finished with a par.

On the other 12 holes: +31 Mrs. oT only beat me by 14 shots...

Just to prove you wrong , if you drive the ball into the desert area on this course is it unplayable? Is this a stroke and distance situation every time? So for instance, on 16 when you go for a drive are you risking a big number should your swing go badly awry?

I have never played desert golf before unless you count Vegas.

The desert courses I've played generally treat the desert as a lateral hazard.

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

Triple,

OK you proved me wrong...

Generally as oT said, we treat it as a hazard. A couple of times on the front nine I hit balls into the desert, and just dropped a ball where it crossed over. It's generally a local rule that most courses put on the scorecard to keep play moving - if everyone really played stroke + distance on desert courses there would be six hour rounds.

This rule has the potential to get tricky when you hit it into the desert but close to someone's house, because we definitely enforce stroke + distance on shots hit OB. Luckily this doesn't happen very often.

52 + 52 = 104. Played most of it in the rain. Took a nice long break halfway to watch the PGA championship when it was raining harder.

So do you look for the ball and consider playing it from the hazard? Or are you generally better off just taking a drop? Or are there little creatures in the scrub that will send you to the ER like recluse spiders, rattlesnakes and box jellyfish(that have adapted to land, of course)?

Oh no, we definitely look. I have a pretty good eye for watching the ball into the sh*t. The chances of finding your ball depends on the nature of the desert. Some courses have a lot of semi-manicured, more barren desert areas, some are completely untamed. I'd say you will find a playable shot about 25% of the time, but a higher percentage you will find it, but it won't be playable.

Remarkably, for all the desert golf I've played and all the desert floors I've stomped around on, I've only ever seen one rattlesnake, and that one was actually on a teebox. I think I've just been really lucky.
