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

37-45-82. 2 birdies, 3 double bogeys.

Lost my swing, driver especially. Chipping beyond horrible, though the last one was good. Too bad because the first eight holes were decent.

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

42 (par 37). 2 birdies, 2 double bogeys.

Went back to a Ping i20 driver and hit it well. I'm very tempted to hit up a Titleist fitting event this weekend to check out the TS2 and TS3, but for the time being it's back to Ping. Also picked up a chipping tip at the end of Sunday's round and it worked well. Had some putter issues and a couple brain cramps but not a bad round for LOL Tuesday night golf.

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

36-40-76

3 birdies, 11 pars, 1 bogey, 3 doubles

Two OB shots and a lateral off the tee lead to the doubles. Played the tips at 6,600 and 73.0/147. Course is still soaked to not only no roll, but the ball plugs and it's hard to find. Can't wait for the damn dry season to arrive.

39-41-80. 1 birdie, 1 double bogey.

Mostly acceptable. Driver was so-so, shanked a chip, missed a short birdie putt. Otherwise pretty solid.

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

37-35-72 (Par 71)

Highlights include zero warmup, a 6 iron i pulled about 50 yards on the par 3 2nd hole for bogey, followed up by a pull hook into the water hazard on the easiest birdie hole on the course (par 5 3rd hole). Smooth sailing from there aside from a missed 2-2.5 footer on 11.

Five birdie attempts from inside 8-9 feet on the front 9 with only one make.

15 greens in reg including 8 on the back plus a putt from a couple inches into the fringe on 18.

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

37-36-73 (Par 68)

2 birdies, 2 doubles, 3 bogeys, 11 pars

Two of the par 5's were converted over to par 3's because of rain. Iron play was really good. No 3-putts.

I was +5 standing on the 5th tee box, so good recovery rest of the way.

80.

Hit a toe shank that bounced off a rock and onto someone's balcony, where the ball bounced up and down a good 10 times or so before it fell back down. Nice wakeup call for the neighbours.

Toe shank? Not sure I have ever seen one of those.

Nice round yesterday BTW.

I'm not sure if it's a commonly used term, but I'm talking about hitting it so far off the toe it takes off similar to a shank.

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

37-39-76. 3 birdies, 1 double bogey. 6/13 fairways, 8/18 greens, 28 putts

Best day with the putter in a long time. Everything was right around the hole, lots of putts right in the center. Felt good. Now if only I could learn how to chip and pitch consistently. Driver also kinda shaky.

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

This was on Saturday, but I don't count it until the official result is posted.

It was the only board competition we have in stableford format and the weather was terrible. The greens would have flooded except they had been spiked just 3 days earlier, so the water had somewhere to go. Our club goes out in two waves, one mid-morning and one around lunchtime, and the morning guys had the rain starting at a drizzle, but getting harder and harder until it was a downpour when we set off in the afternoon and they were on the back 9. Luckily the rain cleared up on the back 9 for us, and the greens were actually better for the rain as the holes were filled!

Front 9 - 11 points

Back 9 - 22 points, and my best back 9 for at least 7 years - never missed a makeable putt and never 3-putted.

Competition was a reductions-only due to the appalling weather and I won the competition on a card-playoff.

39 (par 35). 2 birdies, 2 double bogeys.

Mostly bad golf. Did hit it to two feet and made the putt on the last hole to leave on a high note. Will be making a driver change after hitting exactly one decent tee ball.

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

No score

Played 9 and was just missing around with various shots, playing 2 balls, etc. since our range and practice areas are closed with the rain. So no warm-up and it took a few holes to get the ball striking down again. Was really working on the last hole which is a par 5 converted to a 146y par 3 right now because of rain. Knocked it to 18 inches.

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

finally playing a lot again lately since I've been working from home all year. I have barely played the last 4 years or so, went from being club pres to not being a member. got all my new clubs in the bag.

Today shot 44-38 on a par 35. birdied 6 on the back and about had back to back birds but somehow the ball didn't go in on 7(25% was hanging over the lip). Got up and down twice for par in tough spots, once from 110 to 5 feet on 18 and to 2 feet from 75 yards on 3.

I was as low as a 9 handicap in 2010, then I got married and had kids.... trying to get back to that point.

driver is still worthless, been watching a lot of youtube vids from Rick Shiels and Clay Ballard.

This is exactly why I have been able to improve fairly fast. I can always go hit the range at lunch time for an hour or play 18 before the day starts.

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

Decided not to play today. Had a great time driving across the US and lucky enough to get two rounds in, when Iíd only anticipated one.
Played on my 30th birthday at the Marty Sanchez Links de Santa Fe and shot 88 from the black tees.
46-42-88
Couldnít get my rental driver going at all - it was so much heavier than Iím used to. Didnít hit a fairway til the 10th, but I chipped and putted very well. I burned the cup with 3/4 bunker shots, and had a massive lip-out for birdie from just off the green with a wedge on the second.
Rough was quite heavy so the front 9 was a battle.
Played some really great wedge shots to scramble, including what Iíd consider almost a lifetime highlight shot from deep in the rough underneath a bunker with the pin just behind that, on a green sloping away. Huge flop shot to 4 feet and made the putt. It was a great shot.

Also played at Continental Country Club in Flagstaff, AZ.
45-39-84
Again, struggled with rental driver on the front including water and OB off the tee on 1 & 3. This was a Ping G something which I really like, just struggled with swing to start.
Again chipped and putted great. Only hit 3/18 GIR and had 29 putts.
Drove the 318 yard 15th and two-putted for birdie.

All in all, really enjoyed my first experience playing golf in this country. My first time playing at altitude, too, as I live at sea level. Playing golf in the desert was a cool experience.

41-40-81. 2 birdies, 1 double bogey, 1 quadruple bogey.

First round of club championship. Had one hole where the neurons and the muscles just could not get on the same page (quad with no penalty strokes), otherwise played OK. Driver continues to be shaky and chipping awful. 8 shots back.

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

37-42-79 (sill a par 68)

1 birdie, 2 doubles

Driving was good, irons were pretty good, chipping bad and putting just terrible. I think I had 5 hard lip-outs when the ball wasn't even moving that fast. Thought I might have had my first career ace when it disappeared behind the pin, but was actually 6 feet behind the hole. Of course I lipped that putt out too.

35-43-78. 2 birdies, 1 triple bogey.

Ended up in second place, no surprise as I was pretty far back. Finally yipped a short putt and had two horseshoes on the back, otherwise putted very well this weekend. Driver continued to be awful and other clubs off the tee were pretty bad too. And it would be great if I could stop having one hole where my brain and muscles refuse to get on the same page.

Nice run. I'd gladly take 2nd place in my club championship.

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

42-42-84 - Mission Hills CC - Pete Dye Challenge Course

One of the hardest courses I have ever played. Not because of length but because there is water off of the tee on almost every hole. There is water to the left of the fairway/green on 10 holes and 2 to the right of the fairway. Those of you who know me you know what my ball flight is. That one is gonna be tough. It's the 4th round course of my tourney that starts Friday.

I did have one small highlight on the 367y par 4. I pulled my drive right of the fairway into tall grass. Unplayable I took a drop and then proceeded to hole out from 138y for a birdie.
