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

I shot 81 (43/38) yesterday with 13 greens in regulation, 40 putts, and countless horrible chips. I had 5 birdie putts of less than 10 feet and there were four holes where I had eagle chips of less than 20 yards. I was +3 on those four holes.

I usually take about 36 putts and my short game is usually solid; I have to break 80 soon right? right?

brag: put my drive 10 yard from the green on the uphill, trees-in-front-of-green 320 yard 18th on which I needed a birdie to break 80. also hit driver + seven iron into a par 5.
beat: bogeyed both holes obv.
variance: according to weir I'm a pussy because I played a 6000 yard course.

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

I love days like this. Playing the blue tees at Red Tail in Portland, shot a 53 on the front, easily my worst score in recent memory. I felt ok about it, though, because I was striking the ball well, I just got in some really bad spots, and had trouble adjusting to the green.
Back Nine:
Par-Par-Par-Bogey-Bogey-Bogey-Double-Birdie-Par, for a 40, and a whopping 93.

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

81. Two birdies, three doubles - two of which were just stupid.

Went back to a center-shafted putter after taking 21 putts while shooting 41 on Tuesday. I almost think I should carry two putters - I have much better distance control with the heel-shafted Ping but I make a lot more of the three footers with the center-shafted Nike.

53 + 49 = 102. 4 pars, plus 1 birdie on a par 5 (470 yards). A few forgetable disaster holes, as usual. Other than that, it was a pretty average round for me.

85. Played like complete [censored]. Just had no idea where the ball was going. The only reason it wasn't worse was that my chipping was pretty decent.

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

Wolf course at Paiute from the blue tees. 54-64 that was really better than that on the front and worse than that on the back.

Felt pretty good about my swing early then the wheels fell off. Big problem is that in addition to rarely playing, this was only my second 18 with some clubs I bought last year. My whole life I've played with shafts that are 2" too short for me, and my swing is really struggling to get in rythm with the new longer shafts. I really need to hit a gazillion balls just to find a "standard" swing before I go and start getting advice on how to fix it. On a good note, I putted pretty well.

55 + 51 = 106. Ugly round today. Had 4 pars, as well as several triple-bogeys, a 9 and a 10.
That is the mark of a golfer with some talent.
I will take this to heart (I'm a big fan of the 7-9 pars and score in the 90s).
Like today...46-45 at Poppy Ridge (white tees, sorry...) with 8 pars. The back nine (Chardonnay) went:

par
double
double
par
QUAD
par
bogey
par
par

well, the back 9 is def. more challenging than the front nine, so i guess there is some solace in the 40 coming in. 11, 13, and 15 always seem to give me fits.

I played a round with a course pro at Redtail and he said that they have some of the most challenging greens in the PDX area. He still has trouble reading them on some holes because they break opposite the way they read.

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.
And don't forget the Morning Special during the week. Out by 7am and you can play 18 for $20 walking or $29 w/cart. Not as great a deal as the twilight special, but still pretty good.

96 for me. Didn't hit a solid iron shot until hole 13 I think. Probably hit more fairways than I ever have before then proceeded to move 5lbs of dirt with each iron.

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

shot 79 this morning. got out to vegas on friday night and got to go to the range yesterday so that helped a bit, but my short game was way off. luckily everything else was spot on. unfortunately doubled the last 2 holes or it would have been a 75...i blame that on the heat and lack of sleep since i had come from playing a 9hr poker session before teeing off.

it's a pretty sweet life out here, wake up at like 7pm, eat, go play live poker, eat a few times, play golf at 9am, sleep, repeat...

This sounds like my life exactly. Except for the live part.

Beat: I'm in Ohio.

Brag: I'm an OSU student so for $550 I'm a member at the 24th best course in Ohio. Comparable courses like Tartan Fields would cost about $40,000.

Variance: There's a Nationwide tour event coming up and the course is going to be closed for about ten days. I have no idea what I'm going to do with myself.

Wow, I didn't even see that. That's a good deal, especially since you won't feel rushed during the morning time, which you will during the evening.

I had trouble reading the greens, and trouble with speed. The greens seemed SOOOOO slow, and I just never got to a spot where I really believed it. My putting has been spot on, and had pretty much eliminated three putts until Saturday. My front nine issues were compounded by the fact that I have a new driver, and holes where I would normally hit the hybrid safe down the middle, I went with the driver, and ended up needing to punch out.

Incidentally, have you had a chance to play Quail Valley yet? I REALLY liked it, especially for the value.

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

81 from the back tees at my course (about 6200 yards)

Shot a pretty horrid 43 on the front with 3 doubles, and then decided to punish myself for the rest of the round by blaring Never Gonna Give You Up on my ipod.

Obviously, I'm two under for the nine after the 13th, after a two foot left-to-right swinger didn't even scare the hole. Then I realize I've been singing along to [censored] Rick Astley, and the group playing beside me (most holes on each nine- 27 holes- are parallel to each other) can hear me. I bogey the next three after three-jacking from 20-30 feet twice, and shanking a blast from 30 yards out on a short par 4. After the first bogey I continue blaring NGGYU since the other group's holes fork off. I don't regain any of the magic of the first four holes. I blame Rick Astley.

[censored] Rick Astley.

edit: I guess it wasn't a very good punishment if I was singing along.

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

BLAHHHHHHHHHH.

I stopped after work to play nine with a new employee at his "home" course. It was the first time I was on this course in 15 years and it's been significantly altered. That being said, I hit the ever-loving [censored] out of the ball all evening. I managed to four-putt twice and three-putt once. I managed a 43 in spite of this crap.

Tip of the day: when putting on a new course, don't pretend like you know what you're doing. If you don't have a solid read, lag the damn thing at the hole and get out with par.

I haven't. Is that the one out west that used to be a farm? Links style? I have a couple of friends that played it very early this year and didn't seem that excited about it. Maybe it's come into shape since then, or maybe their games just sucked at that time.

That's the one. For the cost, it's definitely worth it. I really enjoyed it, the course has a lot of character (not as much as Stone Creek), and was in great shape.

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

43 in our Wednesday night league. It is, apparently, my new favorite score. In 9 weeks I have 4 43s, 2 42s, a 41, and a 47 and 48 just to keep me humble.

Its been a good year so far. I have the lowest scoring average in the league (there's only nine of us) and its a full stroke less than last year. Mostly from keeping out of trouble off the tee.

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

Back to Poppy Ridge yesterday...played Chardonnay-Zinfandel at 43-42, which is a good score for me. I think summer has finally arrived in that area, as it was in the mid-90s by the time we finished.

One of the guys we played with claimed a 5, and it's funny to note the difference in the sound the ball makes flying through the air when someone is capable good contact + high swing speed. My ball in flight is like the ship in 2001, completely silent.

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

Showed off the short game today.

First tee hit my drive to the ladies tee. Hit a three wood to the 100 marker hit a SW a foot away tapped in for par.

Second hole hit an 8 iron thin on a 158 yard par three, knocked the pitch a few feet away made the par.

On the front 9 I hit 7 horrible tee shots and only had one bite me in the ass. On the second par three I hit one OB, three off the green and down the side of a hill. Pitched to about 20 feet and two putted.

Back nine I got it back together and shot a 40. 85 total. Up only a few bucks.

88 - about average for me. Started out double-double-double and picked it up after that. First round in a month without a birdie - missed four makable putts, one a downhill left four footer.

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

Had a pretty reasonable round today. 47 after 9 holes. It's my 9th time out so I'm not complaining.

Hole of the day:
330y par 4. Slight dogleg to the right but not very much. Trees galore on the right, small bunker on the left at about 200-210y.

Hit a nice little drive 240y out into the fairway. Took a PW and just did a normal full swing. Ended up 20 feet away and managed to 2 putt it in for par.

Worst shot of the day:
Driver off the tee, it pretty much did a 90 degree arc to the right. Flew over a few tall hedges and smacked a small apartment complex. No windows were broken, but I did lose my ball (but it was a range ball).

Shot an 85(42-43) at Butter Valley Golf Port yesterday. It has a little landing strip going right through the middle of the course. Saw 2 planes land during my round.

First time I ever played there so there was a couple holes I didn't really know where to aim. I couldn't putt to save my life either. Easily the worst I've putted this year. Missed 4 putts inside 6 feet. Barf.
