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

No score, practice 9. Went out late to get some work in. Glad I did. Driver has been dialed in but my irons have been way off. Finally figured that I might be setting wrong at the top, hit three shots from 150 on the last and hit all 3 flush. Hopeful.

Also continue to be really impressed with the 818H1. Only hit four balls with it tonight but all four were solidly struck and but for bad aim on one of them all four would have been very good shots.

Also hit the reshafted 3 iron a couple times. As usual, Ping does nice work.

Rained out after 3 holes. Glad they blew the horn when they did, it started coming down in buckets instead of just sheets.

41-49-90 - UNC Finley

Yea me. Stopped caring after about 4 or 5 holes after playing my 4th straight day. Lots of doubles and triples on the back. Started working on my swing after a while.

Get to put the clubs in storage for a week as I am off to the Cayman Islands for family vacation.

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

Last played in 2008. Used to play to a 4, but quit because it was driving me insane. Plus my clubs were stolen.

I decided to maybe try again. My friend was buying a $200 putter, so I grabbed a set of wood woods (ping zings), a set of powerbilt irons with faux hickory shafts that I think were from the 30s, and a old bullseye. For irony I bought some of those matte finish vivid orange balls. About $100 total. I'd have gotten balata balls, but that seemed excessive.

I shot 81. He shot 85. He's not talking to me now.

(To be fair, the course rating was about 66. I'm not a wizard)

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

My men's club does an annual match play event and today I played my second round match. I'm a 1.1 and the other guy was a 10.7, so I had to give him 8 shots since I was playing the tips and he was playing the next set of tees.

brag: won the match in 20 holes
beat: was + 8 thru the first 10 holes and was down 5 at that point, was 4 down with 4 to go
variance: played the last 10 holes in -4

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

43-34-77

2 birdies, 2 doubles

First round in over a week coming off vacation. Didn't warm up and just hit the course and I guess it showed. Also of note the pins were in on the front 9 then I passed the guy cutting the holes at the turn so no pins, just knew front/middle/back.

Tournament tomorrow, same course I tried the state am qualifier on. Hopefully goes better this time.

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



4/14 FIR, 11/18 GIR, 38 putts (3 3-putts)

A disaster of a start. Popped it up to the left into the trees/lateral hazard on 1. Had to lay-up on 3rd shot. Hit 4th over in jail. Chipped 5 40 feet from hole (couldn't go at hole) and then proceeded to 3-putt.

The other disaster was on #4. It's about a 270y carry over a lake. Slip on 1st shot and pop it up in the lake. 3rd was terrible contact and didn't clear lake. 5th finally cleared it. I think I was gonna tin cup it until I made or or ran out of balls instead of hitting it out to the left.

Good thing my iron play was good because everything else sucked ass.

39 (par 36). 2 birdies, 1 double bogey.

Quit after nine due to lightning. A mixed bag of good shots with a handful of really bad ones.

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

bogey free round today!

2 birdies, 10 pars, 6 doubles (or worse, i picked up once or twice).

on a positive note, i didn't take 2 stroke penalty for putting a moving ball.

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

37-36-73 (Par 70, 118 slope)

1 eagle, 2 birdies, 1 double

Played Babe Zaharias, a local muni here. Tops out at just over 6k yards. Greens are in pretty bad shape, fairways are weeds or bare. Basically playing out in a field.

First eagle of the year and first time I have ever made one on a par 4. 283y and downhill a bit. Hit 3w to about 30 feet and made the putt.

41 (par 37). 1 birdie, 2 double bogeys.

Hot, humid afternoon. More good shots than bad but a couple poor plays cost doubles.

LOL Tuesday golf. Actually played well, other than a drive hooked off the planet on the last leading to the triple.
