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

Played 18 in NJ today, high was 39 degrees but with the sun out and light wind it was honestly pretty comfortable. Unfortunately ground was like a rock and mostly couldn't get the tee in the ground. Ended up leaving the driver in the bag and just hit 5 iron off every tee. Was actually good practice, in fact I think I might want to use iron off the tee more often (usually hit driver every hole even the short par 4s).

At any rate was happy with my swing was hitting a nice draw most of the time and contact was solid. Ended up 45-44-89. Nice to get out in mid-Dec at least!

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

Equal lowest round (par 72) today.

43-40-83

Greens have been done recently so putting was bloody tough. I also putted very poorly which didnít help.

9 gir (also new record)

2 birdies
6 pars
7 bogeys
3 doubles

3 3-putts including for eagle on the 1st from about 30 feet

My goals for 2018 were to make an eagle and to have 3+ birdies in a competition round and I shouldíve locked away the second of those easily. Had a wedge or a putter for my 3rd shot on all 4 par 5ís and played them in +2. The 3-putt eagle and missing from 5 feet for birdie on the 6th were soul destroying. Played the really tough par 5 4th perfect until I left my wedge approach just short of the ridge at the front of the green, preventing any roll out to the flag and another 3 putt.

Both made birdies were on par 4ís - one from 2 feet after 2-iron/GW on 11 and the other 5 feet after 2-iron/9ir on 8.

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

Even par for four holes. 50 degree day in December, I'll take it! Apparently I play better when the course is covered in leaves, there are no pins and no work of any kind has been done for weeks. Got a chance to hit a handful of shots with the Mizuno CLK hybrids I picked up a few weeks back - nice clubs if a hair more flexy than I would have expected.

3 rounds this week on par 72 7450 yards 76.5/151 course down in Florida. 77/75/76.

Rating should legitimately be 79. Played solidly.

Trump National Jupiter. It's a Nicklaus course with greens that are just impossible, especially for the yardage.

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

Ah, not familiar with that one.

39-40-79

2 birdies, 2 doubles

First halfway decent round I have had in quite a while, and even then it wasn't great. Had 2 3-putt bogeys. Never scared the hole on many putts either. My birdies were from 2 and 5 feet. The 4 times I hit driver on the day were good.

Planning on playing almost every day this week since I have it off. Next tournament is in 3 weeks.

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

Streamsong Black - 6,759y 72.0/130

39-43-82 (par 73)

2 birdies, 2 doubles

Very windy day of 20 mph and stronger gusts. Both birdies were reaching 2 of the par 5's in 2. I should have hit the other 3 in 2 but was over green on 2 of them and right of the green on the other. I went bogey, double, bogey on those 3 holes too.

This one is for sure my favorite of the 3 courses on property. Greens are crazy tough but very fair. Course reminded me a lot of Old MacDonald. Also something like you would see in the sand belt of Australia.

Highlight of the day was reaching the green in 2 of my longest par 5 to date at 581 yards. Straight right to left wind and I hit a good drive that I thought cut too much but it barely hung on to the fairway. Had 262y left to the green and I hit a low 3 hybrid that probably landed 40 yards short of the green and kept on rolling.

I will have to post up some pics when I get a chance.

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

No score. Mid 40s today and I'm not going to pass up a chance to swing the clubs in January in Michigan. We got a little snow mid-week and that lingered in the shaded areas, otherwise it would have been ideal winter golf conditions. Felt good.

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

Damn, golf in January in Michigan. I think the earliest I ever teed it up in Minnesota was March.

41-42-83 for me today. 2 birdies, 3 doubles. Tournament and I finished T7 of 16. Not great but it was quite windy out today. Considering how ****ty I have played lately I will take it.

Have a 2 round event next week.

Yeah, some winters we get a fair amount of mild weather, definitely more up and down than Minnesota. Ended up hitting 50 this afternoon. Have trips tentatively planned for March and April so just need to get a warm spell in February to keep the consecutive months streak alive!

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

Had a real chance to break 80 for the first time today. Knowing how achievable it was with a few holes left really got in my head and I blew it.

I was +5 with a 2 footer for par on the 15th and finished +9 for an 81. Still two shots better than my personal best but man I gotta sort my mental game out.

Putter was poor today but everything else was fairly tidy. 3x 3-putts.

10 pars
4 bogeys
3 doubles
1 birdie (on my nemesis hole too, which Iíve never made bird on before so that was nice)

1 double and 2 bogeys in the last 4 holes What'd You Shoot Today?  (Golf BBV Thread)

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

38 - Emergency 9 at lunch today

2 birdies, 2 doubles, 5 pars

Finally feel like I am near a breakthrough in scoring good again. One of the doubles was a hooked hybrid that I normally hit driver off the tee but I wanted to play through a group so I took less and brought water into play. Other double was a mis-club where I thought wind was right to left when it was actually behind me, and into the water it went.

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

Unfortunately due to weather and life, haven't been able to play since 12/2. My last shot was a 4 iron punch from 120 in the trees which sliced around rolled up a 3 tiered green and into the hole for an eagle 2. (It was insane...better than either of my hole in ones with 5 woods). Thinking about just ending on a high note? Retire?

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

Semi-regular social game with golf buddies at a nearby course. Gorgeous spot underneath the mountain ranges. Some amazing sunset views. Played here twice before and I love it.

I was drinking/smoking and partaking in the banter on course and surprisingly still scored well, shooting to my 14 handicap and winning most of the $.

Highlight was a gettable par 5, big push fade off the tee, wind caught it and carried it over the trees to the next fairway. Had 220ish metres to the green but totally blocked. Decided to hit up the wrong fairway at the wrong green, which I did. Took my drop off the wrong green and was left with a super awkward 55m pitch. Over a tree then carrying a bunker with very little green to play with. Managed to stiff it to 8 feet and roll the birdie putt in.

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

Tourney over the weekend and shot 94-82. I suck.

Weather looks good for Vegas this week. Looking at the double play deal of Bali Hai and Cascata.

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

i have played a second or third shot up the 'wrong' fairway after missing a drive more times that i can remember. more often than not it seems to be the correct play (and a great way to meet other golfers on the course).

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

Given the style of tree youíll often find on the courses here in Aus itís often a case of if youíre gonna miss the fairway, miss it by heeeaaaps to give yourself an angle

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

Sorta did it again. Not with the yips or anything but just finished poorly after playing great. Putted a LOT better. Think I only had 29 putts.

42-41-83

Played the last 3 holes in +5 so that sucks, but man I played pretty solid for the most part. Handicap should be back to all time low if not lower once todayís scores have been submitted.
