4 birdies, 2 bogeys

Tied the career low. Made bogey on 17 and missed the 12 footer for birdie on 18. Was 0/2 on sand saves leading to both bogeys, missing 10 footers each time. Driver was good on the 7 times I hit it today including driving a par 5 that is a 290y carry to the green and getting home with 7 iron into a 501y par 5.

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

Congrats. Career lows are fun.

I’m playing this summer’s nemesis course tomorrow. I think I’m ready physically and golflogically, if I can keep focus I think I’ll be ok.

Nice, Scott - that's super solid.

Also - since he seems to not want to come and brag Nchabazam won the state 4ball championship 3 weeks ago and finished T6 in the state mid-am last weekend. Golfing his ball nicely the past month.

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

I was even through 5 the other day, took 9 strokes on par 3 sixth hole. Then finished par/bogey on 8 and 9.

The highlight was birdie on the hardest hole on the course. Thin 2 iron to the near corner of the 90 degree dogleg right. 195 into stiff wind. Brook in front of the green at 175 to 180. Drew it into the wind and it bounced on the front of the green, stopping dead center of the green. The putt was very uphill to a plateau then flattened out for the last 2 yards. It curled to the left going up the hill and straightened out heading directly into the cup.

39 (par 35). No birdies, no double bogeys.

Pretty uneventful. Kept the ball in play, didn't chip well, putted ok considering the greens were punched a week or so ago.

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

40-38-78 (par 72)
11 GIR, 7 fairways
1 birdie, 1 triple, 4 bogeys. Everything was just solid today. Only big error was when I tried to play a draw w/ my driver and I push-cut it into the trees, earning my triple bogey on the day. Was especially refreshing to play a course that isn't muddy/underwater.

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

Best ball tourney. We used both my drive and approach on a few holes. Made the back fringe in 2 shots on a par 5 that I hit 3 wood 5 iron(very downhill second shot).

Many birdie opportunities but we struggled to make 10 to 20 feet.

+3 final score.

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

38-44-82. 1 birdie, 3 double bogeys.

Highly rated course (Tullymore), in great shape, first class experience ... I just donít love the design. Extreme target golf, many blind shots, lots of visual deception.

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

36-40-76

2 birdies, 2 doubles

Irons not sharp. Had a lot of 30 foot birdie putts. The doubles were both dumped in the water, one on a tough downhill pitch that I bladed and then off the tee on the next hole.

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

Sad news as they removed the chapman part of the tourney. Now its 9 holes modified alternate shot, 9 holes scramble, 9 holes fourball and 9 holes singles.

We are gonna have to give 2 shots in alternate shot, 1 shot in scramble. They will play off of me in fourball so my partner will get 1, and opponents will each get 2. Then singles I will be giving 2.

Based on the 9 we are playing for singles it's gonna be pretty tough for me to win giving 2, unless the opponent dumps it into the lateral a few times off the tee.

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

45-44-89 Par 68

Triple bogey on 4(4 putts from pin high fringe) and 11(lost a ball left when people on the tee let me play through). double bogey on 2(flew the green from 70 yards 4th shot) 13(put one in the pond) and 18(Put one in the river).

The rest was remarkably clean.

5 iron to 3 feet from 182. 6 iron to 5 feet from 173 from a divot.

No birdies but I was close 4 times.

39-38-77. 2 birdies, 1 double bogey. 69.1/130/5940 yards

Other than some dodgy short putting and a couple awful 6h shots on par 3s a pretty solid round.

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

So our match ended up being chapman on the front and scramble on the back. For Chapman you picked your best ball after the second shot and alternated in through the hole.

We were 1 down with 3 to play plus opponents had a shot on the 9th. We win the 7th with a 20 foot par putt, they still had 8 feet for bogey. We halve the 8th a tricky par 3 by getting up and down by making a 15 footer for par so all square going into the last.

We are on in regulation with a 30 foot downhill putt and they are left of the green. They flub 2 chips and finally get on in 5. We 2-putt par and steal the match. Never thought we could win the 9th giving a shot, was just hoping for a halve.

Back 9 scramble both my partner and myself play pretty awful and we have to give them a shot on a hole. We shot -2 and lost 3 and 2.

Overall matches are fairly close.

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

glad to hear you're feeling better nate.
i use imgur for pics because i'm pc based, but many others use tapatalk because that's how they consume 2+2 (on their phone).
if you choose to use imgur, after posting a pic click on the '...' in the upper right, get share links, and choose the 'get BBCode' option. you can paste that right into the chat box without doing anything else.

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

43-42-85. 1 birdie, 3 double bogeys. 68.9/127/5900 yards

Had lots of 3 putt bogeys, 3 putt doubles, even a 3 putt par and a lefty 3 putt. Only birdie was a lefty 15 footer on the last hole.

If I had brought another putter with me Iíd say it was at worst 50/50 that my current putter would have ended up in the river.

Fairly smooth format. I generally drive it about 20 yards or so further than my partner. On both of the par 5's I had to hit the 2nd from the trees, basically just hitting it back into play as an emergency in case his shot was no good. Ended up happening once as he clipped a tree trying to cut the corner.

One slight flaw with our chapman game is that I was the one with all of the birdie looks and I an not nearly as good of a putter as my partner. I had the birdie putt on 6 of the 7 par 4s and 5s.

Edit: That also tells you how subpar my iron game was today. I did hit the green on 4 of the 6 greens where I took the birdie putt, just not as close.

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

Evening 45 par 34. Few 4 putt double bogeys, otherwise pretty clean. Didn’t lose a ball woohoo.

Good tee shots on 1,2,4,5,7,8.

Bad tee shots on 3(push cut), 6(overcooked draw 3 iron from 195 Yard par 3). 9(push cut).

Good approaches on 1(pw to 15 feet) 2(4th shot from 60 yards left 7 feet for par). 9(54 degree wedge to 2 feet from 105 after punching out of the trees).

Up and down sand save on 6 from 25 yards away left 5 feet for par putt which fell.

Otherwise my putting is pretty bad, which is amplified by the fast dry greens. Thinking of getting a Medium size mallet putter.
