I don't know much about physics of golf and stuff, but this implies to me that there is a very good chance your driver off the tee would have gone over the green. Not guaranteed but quite possible, no?

last round: 80 cabo del sol(desert). 4 birdies (3 eagle putts)including the 313yd par 4 3rd. chalk it up to rental clubs/rental putter. won $10 on a $5 nassua which was big money for the guy i was playing w/ from fresno. funny stuff on a course that costs over $200 a round. thats why you cant hustle golf on a golf course.
When I played Cabo del Sol the Desert course hadn't opened yet - it was like literally a week or two away, would have been sooner but a hurricane had come through a couple of months earlier and set them back.

It's fair to say the Ocean course is in my top five that I've ever played. Have you played both and if so how well does Desert compare? I can't imagine it's AS good as there are no ocean holes, but plenty of ocean views.

Tied my best round ever yesterday at Waterview in Rowlett, TX. 5-under 67 with a bogey on the driveable par 4. Super easy course though for me, 5 sets of tees, played one up from tips. I think I had sandwedge into every hole except two. Good luck ghostface!!! I passed a PAT in Phoenix when I was attending SDGA. When in doubt, lay up.
Nice round, sheesh.

Regarding PAT, I'm embarrassed to say I had no idea what it was, had to google it. Where did you have yours here in Phoenix and what did you shoot?

From the PGA site:

Quote:
The PAT is conducted from the middle tees of the golf course with the flagsticks set on a generally flat area of the green. Although this sounds relatively simple, less than 20% of those taking the test achieve a passing score. If your game is marginal, it is highly recommended that you work diligently on improving prior to registering for the PAT.

56/49

10 on the first hole Par-4. 8 on the second hole. First time out this year. Took me a while to figure out how to swing again.

yeah ive played both many times, desert is rediculously nice. 3rd best course in cabo now that el dorado is private (even then the eldorado private course isnt that good equivalent of palmilla). 2nd best course is cabo real. once the 4 new courses at pueblo bonita are opened these rankings will change dramatically.

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

Last round was 65, on Thursday. Better that normal. If I'm putting good I'll shoot 65-70, putting bad 71-76.

8 birdies in 16 holes, bogey on 17, lip out birdie on 18.

Well given the wind factor I think a driver and a 5 wood would probably go close to the same distance since a 5 wood can really get up in the air and take advantage of the wind. But you're right, if I smoked a drive I probably could have came close to the green.

Shot a 106 today . 48 on the front and a 58 on the back. So frustrating to completely fall apart like that.

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

82 today. Snap hooked two [censored] drives out of bounds. [Censored] playing the back tees. Missed a couple makeable putts too.

Mini brag: Recovered on the OB holes to make a bogey and a double even with the penalty.

81 yesterday, 82 today. Won $100 yesterday, lost $50 today. Hit it much better yesterday but scored poorly. Irons were awful today but made a couple of nice up-and-downs, including from the bunker on 18 to save par and about $40.

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

limon,

Thanks. El Dorado is the only course down there I've played twice, and I heard it since went private. Pity, but not a huge loss with all the other courses, new and old. Played Cabo Real once too, enjoyed it.

The thing about Cabo del Sol is that even the non-ocean holes on the Ocean course were incredibly memorable. Very well manicured and a fair, challenging layout. When I was there they had the taco bar set up by the clubhouse, which you were supposed to hit when you came back towards the clubhouse on 11. Good times.
