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

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

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.

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

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.

OK, I know what a PAT is now. What's the point?

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

94 on a local muni here in the Denver area. First time out this year and did not play last year. I felt like I left at least 10 shots out there due to stupid plays, bad putts, etc. I had a birdie and two pars. My last handicap was 15 several years ago.

You apparently skipped over my 100+ score. It's not even long or difficult. Not sure what rating/slope is.

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

I'm an 8 index, played my fourth round of golf this season (shot 93, 91, 86 the first three times, what a mess!), then Saturday I had my second best round with a score of 77 on a 71/125 course.

Everything was clicking nicely, one birdie - and two three putts (on the 9th and 18th holes)

Was fun to feel like I know how to play this game after all. Still going to get new irons next week, even though I was hitting these Ping i3+ just fine

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

Finally got out for the first time this year. Shot a 93 in 15-30mph winds on a course I have never seen before, which includes a 10 on a hole when I hit the ball OB three times.

Still won $65 because the guy I'm playing with still thinks he can beat me straight up.

I keep waiting for him to ask for shots, but every week he just looks at me and says $5 a hole $10 a nine and $10 for 18. I used to think he was setting me up, but this has been going on for a year and a half.

104 Saturday, holla. Hit like 6 OB.

Hit a wind-aided 335yd drive on 18 though, so I'm pretty impressed with myself.

What is your HDCP that a 93 is such a disappointment?

Anyway, good for you to have a "reverse sandbagger" on the hook. I know one of them, I hate getting paired with him because it's like instantly giving the other team 3-4 shots. He shoots his best rounds when nobody is watching, "finds" his ball in the desert 100% of the time when he looks for it himself, and otherwise just can't face the fact that he's insecure about his abilities and simply not as good as he is trying to project.
I have not really tried to get a handicap in years. When I was in college I used to play to a 4-5. Now if I am playing well I shoot in the low 80s. Of course now when I'm the course I'm either gambling or in a charity captain & crew tournament so it's hard for me to judge a "real" score.

This guy pulls some decent coin off of some other guys that I give shots to. He just feels like he is on the same level as me and not as them, but he is much closer to them.

I thought that boat was going to end on the last round of last year. I was short some cash so I raised the stakes on him and just raked him over the coals for $250. Then he spent the whole winter talking about how he wanted to get back out against me!

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

This should be fun.

Beat: I shot at 129 at Calusa Country Club

Brag: I only took 3 hours 45 minutes.

Beat: I shot 139 a week ago, so 129 was an improvement.

Brag: Every single time I took out my sand wedge, I hit it perfectly straight, high, exactly 100 yards, and it stopped 2 feet from where it landed.

Beat: I could have thrown the ball farther than it went when I used every other club.

Beat: That performance was after 3 hours worth of private instruction over the course of 1 month.

Beat: I've been playing for probably 4 years.

Beats - 4
Brags - 2

I hate golf.

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

Shot an 89 on Saturday at my (ex) home course, Philmont Country Club.

Unfortunately, I resigned my membership this summer because I don't leave the city enough to make my membership worth it.

Too bad, because I brought my index down from around a 22-23 at the beginning of last year to a 16.7 at the end of the summer.

Birdied the 440 yard par 4 7th, tripled 3 par threes, 3 putted from 4 feet to make bogey on the 10th, and missed another short birdie putt to close out my membership on 18.

Hit the ball well though, now it's time to tear up the Philly area public courses, both munis and high end. I've been looking forward to playing some of the higher end daily fee courses. If anyone wants to join up, drop me a line.

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

Visited Bermuda last week, went to a few courses. Though I played well at this Belmont Hills course, 78 with a 42 and 36. Started off horridly with trip, dub, then started striking the ball awesomely and putting well. I golf a lot, senior on my high school golf team right now.

Went from 124 2 weeks ago to 109 last week to 108 today.

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.

I couldn't agree more with the two comments. You should be playing from the white tees.

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

Brag: It was a pretty nice day here today and the weather was great for golf.

Beat: I shot a miserable 107. My scores this year are 98,100,100, 107. Needless to say, I'm getting worse each time, haha.

I opened up with a 10 and never looked back Still searching for my first birdie of the year. I've had a few putts for biride but none of them were really within my range.

Oh well, this is the summer I play a lot so I QUIT shooting over 100.

Varience: Found some TaylorMade 5 iron in the woods on 18. Neato.

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.

Played nine today and shot my personal best 43. Chip in for par on the first from just short of the green let me know it would be a good day. Iron play wasn't very good, driver was alright, short game was great.
