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

7/25
Sun City South Course
40-39 - 79, Par 72 71.7\118 6813 yards

No birdies, no doubles, one 3 putt. Tweaked something in my back on the range which made for a rough day. Lost about 20-25 yards off the tee which caused problems on the 5 par 4's over 400 yards. Lots of longer than expected irons into greens, leading to more misses. Only hit 8 greens I think. Still not making enough putts. Bad reads, bad strokes, just bad putting.

7/26
Wickenburg Ranch
39/39 - 78, par 72 70.3\133 6486 yards

Love love love this place. And for the first time it didn't kick my ass today. No birdies yet again, but no doubles and no penalty strokes...which is hard to to avoid here. Two 3 putts, but on these greens that's not unexpected. Did a good job keeping the ball in play off the tee and giving myself some good scoring chances. Just didn't take advantage. On two par 3's that were each between 200-205 I hit 5 irons to less than 10' but missed both putts. Wasted about 5 shots taking bogey from the middle of the fairway and only 80-150 yards out. Gotta clean that up.

Temps are supposed to be in 110-115 range through the weekend so we'll see if I make it out this weekend or not.

ec - isn't Big Wick a par 71 or is their online scorecard outdated?

You are correct. The back has three 3's and only two 5's. I'm looking at the scorecard seeing a +3 front and +4 back for a +7 78. Typo\brain fart on my behalf. Score was right, post was not.

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

If you ever get the chance to play it, do so. And set aside enough time to play Lil Wick as well. Fun 9 hole par 3 course where you'll use most every iron in your bag and is in the same kind of condition as Big Wick. It and Quintero are definitely my top 2 courses in Arizona. Though I've only played a small percentage of them.

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

I have heard good things about that course. My only AZ golf trip was about 22 years ago. Played the now dead Karsten ASU course, TPC Scottsdale Desert Course (not the good one), Kierland??? and one other I can't think of.

35-38-73

1 eagle, 3 birdies, 1 double

Always good to start out -2 thru 1.

I know a guy who is really, really, good. Last time I played with him he started eagle (par 5), birdie (par 4), eagle (par 4, hole out from 140). Most amazing thing I've ever seen (golf related).

I'm teeing off at 12:48 today. I'd like to be close to 90.

Course I take lessons at starts hard par 4 then short par 5, driveable par 4, short par 5. I play with the pro a decent amount and one day he was -5 for holes 2-4 and it was definitely something to behold.

When I caddied in a Korn Ferry event a young pro from Colombia went eagle eagle birdie on holes 3-5 at TPC Colorado (short 4, short 5, short 4) in the practice round without flinching and it was amazing.

I made 3 straight birdies once and 4 in 5 holes (with a par mixed in so -4/5) and felt like I was the best ever.

Who else has seen and been on ridiculous runs?

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

-3 thru 2 is my best start that I can remember. My 5 of 6 stretch Sunday is probably my best stretch ever. I have had 4 consecutive birdies 2x, once in high school and once 2 years ago.

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

i once started birdie birdie and made the turn -1, both are career bests. i've lipped out the third birdie a few times but obviously nothing like what's been posted above.

Pulled drive into trees/hazard right. Dropped and still didn't have much of a shot left. Found a window through the trees to the green, actually hit it good expecting it to be on. Never found it.

It's one of the tougher driving holes for me, hazard left and right of the fairway (#4 handicap hole). Also fairway bunkers left and right in the landing zone, for mere mortals that is. I just hit driver now to clear the bunkers, but a little bigger miss is always in play because of it.

I saw your TR in the Golf in Phoenix thread and almost quoted it in here. Definitely an awesome facility. And "only" about $70 right now. Definitely worth the 45 minute drive for me.

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

Played alone today, decided to give my long game a challenge with a 6750yd 72.4/127 track.

41-43-84. 2 birdies, 3 doubles. 6/14 FIR, 6/18 GIR. Tracked my 17 applicable approach shots. 4 were within 5 yards of target. 9 were well short but on/close to target, by >10 yards. The other 4 were pin high misses, 2 on each side.

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

First time I broke 80 I started with a 3-putt bogey, then birdie, par, par, birdie, birdie. Bogey on 7 then par out for -1 at the turn.

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

37 - Emergency 9 last night, 1 birdie, 2 bogeys. Basically speed golf, played in 45 minutes.

37-40-77

2 birdies, 1 double

Started birdie, birdie. Didn't CLOSE finishing bogey, double. For not really having much of a game today I am happy with the score. Maybe it just seemed worse since I lost $.

43-37-80. 1 birdie, 2 double bogeys. 69.2/128/5900 yards.

Decent. Mostly good ball striking. Missed a couple good birdie chances. Screwups were mostly with wedges, though I did get up and down a few times.

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

there aren't many things that frustrate me more than having 125 or less into a hole and finishing bogey or worse.

1. three putt bogeys
2. what i said above
3. three putt pars (lol...as if that's a thing with my game)

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

83 (net +1) at home today in gorgeous conditions. Struggled with my swing but short game was great. 3/5 sand saves and 26 putts.

2 birdies
1 double
2 triples

Both triples were in the first 4 holes and results of really poor swings, and one godawful lie.

After triple on the 4th played the next nine holes in -1, with one bogey on 6 and two birdies on 7 & 10.

Was 1 up in my side-match against my mate, both with short clubs in hand into the 18th approach. I SHANKED mine so hard. So hard. Couldn’t believe it. He hit his to 12 feet and makes par, I hit wedge from the far side of the adjacent holes rough to the fringe and burn the edge for par, tap in for a 5 and finish all square. Wow.

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

41-45-86

2 birdies, 6 doubles

Throw that one away. 3-putt bogey on #1, then par on #2. In good shape on #3 and I am waiting in the fairway thinking "why am I playing today." Just had no interest in playing the rest of the day. If it wasn't a team match I would have just quit. I tend to have this happen to my about once every 3-4 months.

5 of those doubles were consecutive. Then decide I should play again and smoke a drive, knock it to 7 feet, then miss. Next hole smoke a drive, then from 100 I hit the stick. A nice gentle hit as it still ended up 1 fot away. Everything else sucked.
