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

Lost fourball match 1 down. Had to give the opponents 2 shots. Hit a lot of drivers off of the tee and had a ton of 50-75 yard approaches. So yeah driver was working, irons not so much.

Won the individual match 3 and 1. Should have been even worse than that but a win.

We ended up winning overall 70.5 to 59.5.

Did manage three really big drives including a 330y one. If it was a long drive contest I would have liked my chances more

41-38-79. 3 birdies, 3 double bogeys. 69.4/127/6100 yards

Scruffy round saved by birdie on 16, great par on 17, chip in birdie on 18.

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

Have another fourball event on Monday at Sara Bay, a (what I assume) nice Donald Ross design. Both me and my partner are 1 caps. I see one of the people we are paired with is a +4 so that should be a treat.

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

Played a qualifier tournament yesterday and started poorly but somehow actually battled and held it together. 43-37 80 (par 71 6,700y 70.6/128). Hit 11 greens but made nothing and actually 3 putted 3 times for bogie which sucks but scrambled okay and made some solid pars from way out of position so it all balances out. Still didn't break 80 in a tournament of qualifier this season but had two rounds of 80 so those are solid at least. A few more chances left, perhaps.

Need to work on my lag putting; I consistently come up short on long putts especially ones that are overall uphill - and of course the occasional blast it way by.

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

made the turn net even and ended up walking off the 16th tee box (125 yd par 3) after squaring up my debt and went straight to the parking lot. hit six consecutive irons sideways and had enough.

44-43-87. (par 37-35-72). No birdies, 4 double bogeys.

I was due for one of those days. Hit the ball very well on the front, but kept making bogeys and doubles from the middle of the ****ing fairway. Kinda lost interest on the back.

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

Played 9 with a first time golfer today. A good attitude goes a long way in this game and she has it.

Started with two bogeys and a quadruple bogey on par 5 third hole. Then bogey par par birdie bogey bogey.

Didn’t actually keep score we just had fun.

Sideways from path and face or from the hosel?

I quit after 9 earlier this season when I had a lesson first and couldn’t keep it on the planet and it was hot and I was a bit tired. No sense playing if you’re whoa frustrated imo

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

right to left path with the face wide open. i knew it every time at the top (which multiplies the horror) but just couldn't stop. obviously it never happens on the range but once it rears its ugly face in an actual round things compound from there.
i either need a frontal lobotomy or a bottle in front of me.

Chapmans are a blast, but can definitely be frustrating if you or your partner aren't playing well. My dad and I play a bunch of tournaments together, and he hates chapmans because he hates it when he feels like he's letting me down if he's playing bad. I don't give a ****...obviously I'm just playing for fun and to hang out with my dad, but he was between a +1 and a 3 for several years before a bunch of artificial joints got in the way, so he's just frustrated with the game generally.

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

Saturday: 47-40 (87)
Sunday: 40-40 (80)

Saturday just sucked...I used to be able to show up five minutes before a tee time and play like I'd already played 18 (for better or for worse), but apparently I can't do that anymore. I was just hacking all over the place the first few holes, and was having a really hard time adjusting to the greens, which were wet and soft for the first time in months; I couldn't get myself to adjust to speed, and less break. I was 10 over after 7 holes, birdied 8, then managed another double on 9 (which is usually a high potential birdie hole). Can't really explain what happened on the back, other than starting to adjust to the greens, and a birdie on 10 kept me mentally in it.

Sunday was great, and "should have scored better." I was even going into five, but had a disappointing four bogey streak through a stretch where only one hole is one I somewhat expect to bogey, and the others are all somewhat-regular birdies. Backside was a bit similar...birdie 10 for the second day in a row, then went par-par-bogey-bogey with the two bogeys coming on the toughest two holes on the course (for me....long par 4s). Bogeys on 15 and 16 were bummers, but finished par bogey for a respectable round. Highlight for me was I didn't have any doubles on the card. That's been my goal these days. Just wish I had thrown in a couple more pars, and made the 2-3 birdie putts I managed to edge.


I'm still obsessed with length off the tee. I just feel like everything else is "there," and I'd be scoring in the 70s consistently with just 10-20 yards more off the tee. In addition to not being strong or flexible, I hit my drives way too high and haven't been able to fix it. Might be time for another lesson.

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

Fourball event - team score was 37-37-74

Neither of us has played the course before and it did hurt the score a bit. There were some tee shots I would have clubbed down on. I would call it Donald Ross light. There were some false fronts and runoffs on greens but it looks like the reno work softened the runoffs. I think I had only one shot where I ran it up the slope after hitting the false front and rolling back.

We both ended up shooting 82 so I guess ham n' egged it fairway well.

Played with an uncle/nephew team that shot 68. The nephew was around 25 or so and played at FGCU. Pretty good player. He alone finished birdie, eagle, birdie and shot 70.

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

Pinehurst area bound tomorrow morning. Well, flying back to NC tomorrow anyway, then driving to Pinehurst Wednesday morning. Mid Pines Wednesday afternoon, Pine Needles Thursday morning, then Pinehurst #? Friday. Hoping for #2 but word is it's booked up so we're having to hope for a cancellation. #9 is the backup plan. Weather looks like it's going to cooperate so that's a relief. After finishing up at Pinehurst Friday I'll be meeting a different group of friends for a round at The Carolina Club near the Outer Banks Saturday. Should be a fun 4 days of golf.

39-38-77

1 birdie, 1 double

I blame the Stanley Cup for not sleeping last night. I missed a ton of short birdie putts.
