From the tips at local course, anyone who knows Rose Ridge or lives near Pittsburgh PM me, I golf 18 every Tuesday and sometimes Sundays also.
I will put it more mildly than Ghostface, but if you are shooting these numbers you should not be playing the tips. Play as far forward as you can given your playing partners and such.
Yeah I hate being a dick, but its golfers that cant break 100 that play the tips at my course in the summer and put us an hour behind schedule bc they are walking in the knee high grass every hole. If you shoot 110 and know when to drop one in the fairway, etc., rather than spending your allotted 5 minutes searching for a ball thats fine. I do think you will benefit more from playing a shorter golf course though.

44 for nine holes. Ugh. Dubbed three or four shots, wtf. Throw in a couple stupid three putts and it wasn't pretty.

38 on easy mode home course. Short game was nothing short of amazing, driving was iffy, my slice is coming back. Gotta realign stance a bit. Iron play was pretty goot too.

I just like playing further back because it makes some of the holes more fun, plus there is usually just two of us golfing and we play quick. We played through another twosome today and ended up 5 holes ahead of them and they were playing from the whites.

FWIW the people I play with all shoot better than me, in the range of about 90-95 or so, and I normally shoot low 100s. We just recently started playing the tips for a slightly different look, playing the whites might knock a few strokes off my game but why rush on a Tuesday afternoon with no one behind us?

Also if we are slowing someone down we will let them play through as we aren't pricks about it.

I hate to be a nit about this, but you should turn that in. If you're already home, maybe you can drop it off in the next day or so if it's not too much trouble. You already have a five iron, now they don't. Besides, there's always an off chance that the club or or set means something to someone.
tuq, I turned it in after I put my clubs in the trunk. Never once thought of keeping it. Have no fear. I'm pure of heart, sir.

It was just the most obvious "variance" because it was the first time I'd found one that didn't belong to the group in front of me.

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

84 with a solid 9 and a sweet 7. Hit 2 OB and 3 other penalty shots. Good followup from my PAT, lol. Highlight of the round was waiting on the 10th tee hoping that the 4 some ahead would let me and my roommate play through. They didnt but one guy took a nice swing at his drive and fell down backwads while hitting the ball straight up and to the left of the tee. The ball ended up about 10 yards left and 5 yards in front of the tee.

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

Yea I played with Ghostface today and can confirm the goon in front of us...in fact i said "Im writing that one down...we cant disapoint 2+2 golfers." Anyway I shot a 98 with a 48 and a 50...1 birdie tho. It was the first time in a long time that I have counted EVERY stroke so i suppose it is a good starting place for the summer. Hopefully ill be down to a 90 by later this summer.

BTW if yall want to see the course that we played here is the link... Eagle Ridge Golf Club...enjoy

Wow, that is the most horribly Firefox-unfriendly website in...ever.

Also, the site itself doesn't do the course justice. One picture? Looks like a really nice course. Also, whoever wrote the hole-by-hole should have included each hole's yardage by tee under the picture.

All in all, looks like a good track though. I thought it would be the one in Galena, Wisconsin of the same name that is also very nice.

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

81 - best so far this year. (6300 y, par 71)

I've been working big time on my short game in order to get back to a scoring mentality. I had 27 putts today, and 16 chips (shots around the green.)

I'm hitting the ball well, but only hit five fairways and four greens. My short game seems to be coming around as I got up and down 5 times on the back nine.

If it weren't for two 7's, one because of a pulled ball out of bounds, and one for shoddy short game work, I would have had a decent round.

Back to the putting green tomorrow, and I'll be playing again on Saturday!

- Jay

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

Golf forum, awesome.

Today I played at Buena Golf (that may not be its name, I don't know) in Ventura California. It's a par 70 course. I shot 100, with a par on a the 2 handicap hole, 398 yards.

My driver today was insane. I usually use a 3 wood to drive, cause I can keep it straight on track, and still about 200 yards. Well, I was consistenly hitting 220 with it today, so on the final 5 holes I used the 1 when appropriate. Wow! Instead of huge pop fly shots, I was hitting line drive shots that were absolutely straight. And I was going about 250 yards I would guess.

Of course, my low irons are pretty horrible, I avoid 3 and 4-6 are unreliable for me. That is the next part of my game I really need to work on. Putt decent.

Front 9 - all bogeys or double bogeys along with an 8 on a par 4. I think some iron shots that went ~20 yards screwed that one up.

Back 9 - Single and double bogey;s along with a par and triple. My par hole had a chance for birdie, but I missed a 7 foot putt.

Golf is awesome! 25 bucks for 5 hours of entertainment.

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

PATs are a jokish setup. The PGA basically sets it up at a minimal yardage and the pins are usually about center-center.

I went out and played the course once before my PAT, found which holes I needed to be slightly more aggressive on and which holes I need to scrape up a par on, then went out two days later and played that same gameplan.

I'm surprised at the number of good players who don't play well in these things... and at the number of people who simply enter the PAT just to play the golf course. (It sounds ridiculous, but I've heard a bunch of people say how their playing partner openly admitted to having no shot of passing, rather they would just pay the entry fee and play a decent course.)

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

Fugly 89 today. Didn't make a par until #9 and was lucky it wasn't worse - had quite a few one putt bogeys.

It really doesn't suit my game when the course is set up long like it was this time - too many holes where I have almost no chance at getting the ball in the fairway off the tee. Hard choice between praying to not hook the driver too much or being unable to reach the green after hitting an iron.

Oh well, tomorrow is another day!

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

96 today on one of the local muni courses here in Ausitn. (Lions Muni) I'm pretty dissapointed in my play today and am getting used to my new clubs, and more importantly my new shafts (Cobra S9's w/ Reg. Graphite). I'll be in Portland this whole summer and am doubting my abitlity to be able to play often.

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

44-36-80 Orchard Creek, Altamont, NY, Par 71, 6178 Y, 70.2/128

Fought my swing and my putting stroke on the front. 19 putts.

Started knowcking down some flags and stroking it on the back. 15 putts.

I've been hitting the ball well all year, just putting and chipping poorly, working hard on my short game during practice.

Changed to the claw grip on the back side, started rolling the ball better to shoot one over on the back. Things are still looking up, should be shooting some decent scores really soon.

May get up early tomorrow morning to play in a Sunday morning Loop I used to play at a local course.

Three birdies today, with two missed birdies within 10 feet on the front side. Now that I'm rolling the ball better, the scoring should come.

All for now, more scores soon!!

83 today with 7 three putts and 2 OB

however, playing 4 man team 1 low ball we were even today through 12 with two bogeys when I birdied 13 and eagled 14

Then one of my partners birdied 15,16, & 18. We finish -6 win the team bet by one. I get two skins, and my side bet partner shoots 69 with 5 birdies and we kick some dollar double butt. SWEET!

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

Played first round of the season today in windy conditions at Northgate in Reno.
Slope rating is 129 I think. 70.1
Shot 50 on the front w/ 2 quads and 42 on back for a 92.
My driver and 3wood were on fire.
Everything else pretty much sucked.
Made one putt over 3 feet.
