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

Shot a 98 yesterday. Was my first time in almost a year so I wasn't expecting much. I kept teeing off OB, probably cost me ~10 strokes. But there were two short par 4's (296 and 305 yds) - and I almost greened it off the tee on both of 'em. One ended up pin-height in a bunker and the other pin-height on the fringe. This was cool cuz i'm about 5'11" 150lb and used to drive the ball ~200.

Executive course at Angel Park. Shot a 44 including an 8. Zero GIR, only 1 par and had a whopping 7 bunker shots. After a decent putting start, my putter degenerated into it's typically disastrous self too. Not good.

55 + 51 = 106. Ugly round today. Had 4 pars, as well as several triple-bogeys, a 9 and a 10. Topped a lot of shots. Made an ugly 4-putt on one hole. Using my hybrid off the tee was nice. Need to work on consistency.

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

94 on the same course I shot a career-best 89 at two weeks ago. Went out in 45, just like the previous round, but came back in 49. Didn't hit the ball well at all; this was a much more typical, scrambling round for me. Chipped and putted fairly well most of the time, but had one bizarre hole where it took me four strokes to get in from 40 feet just off the green.

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

I shot a 95 yesterday at the country club near my house. I missed a lot of putts including 3 putting inside of 10 feet. Was tryin out my new driver and am pleased with what I am getting from it in terms of distance/accuracy..

Back 9 sucked when we got behind some slow people and my driver started to suffer as I started overswinging...o well

Jeez...46-46. My index right now is 15.5, so I feel like that's the best 92 I've ever shot.

...followed on Sunday by an awful 93. 43-50. The last 5 holes on the card looked like
6-7-8-2-8.

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

Played sunday evening and hacked out an 88(44-44). First time I actually got to play 18 all year. My short game from about 30 to 50 yards from the pin is terrible. I actually missed the green from 40 yards sitting in the middle of the fairway on one hole.

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

39 today on the local public course with a chip-in birdie. I am still lacking some consistency overall. I want to start playing 18, but I didn't go out until like 1 today and it was about 88 with high humidity (hot for Michigan weather). On the positive side it's been at least 5 rounds since I had a double bogey.

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

just played 9 at a local public course, shot 37 (+1). was splitting the fairway with my driver pretty much everytime i used it, but my irons weren't up to par and my putter really let me down or i could have easily been in the red. pitched in on the 9th from about 40yds for eagle to cap it off

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

108 Saturday..

not much better than previously, as its my 4th time out this year, but I finally buckled down after years of golfiing and started some lessons as I was all over the road evertime...never realized how bad my technique was until now (all arms and hands with no hip or rotation at all)...and he redid my grip and slowed down my swing tempo which has gotten me all out of sorts but Im hitting better shots even though it feels "awkward"...

..good news is went through a putting session and seen marked improvement..only 3 putted twice !! but my wedges have gone all to [censored] since I started the lessons and they used to be my strong point...

...hoping to hit mid 90s consistently by end of summer, retooling my swing and technique should help

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

Played 9 holes on Sunday at my regular course. First hole, par 5, on the back fringe, maybe 12 feet from hole after my third shot. Absentmindedly mark my ball and pick it up, there goes one stroke. 3 putt!! Got a 7 when I was sure I was looking at a 5. Kept my head on though and shot a 42, my best round of the year so far. My swing is starting to pwn.

43 on the front 9 at the Links at Nags Head in a 25 mph wind...its great when your 3 iron hybrid goes 300 yards with a 25mph wind at your back

Really...? Most of my friends who play with me say I'm an honest golfer... but there's no way I'd be THIS strigent on myself! Unless, was this some kind of tournament?

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

Like I said, I need to work on consistency. I either have fantastic holes, or holes that are absolute nightmares.

Don't ask me why, but I usually do well on par 4's and crappy on pars 3 & 5.

I will take this to heart (I'm a big fan of the 7-9 pars and score in the 90s).

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

Played Stone Creek in Oregon City, Oregon. I used to live on the side of town where this course would have been close, but no longer. I wish I had taken advantage of it earlier. They have a great deal where anytime after 6 you can play as many holes as you can get in for $19, which includes a cart. I actually showed up about 5:30, and he told me to go off whenever, so I was off at about 5:45, off at 9:10, and got 27 holes in. Shot an 83 over my first 18, which I am quite pleased with. If you're in the POrtland area, you have to give Stone Creek a try.
