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

42-40=82

0 birdies, 8 bogeys, 1 double. Got off the tee nicely all day long, but the approach game was pitiful. I even flat out shanked two shots, one of which came within 3 feet of killing my best friend. Only hit 5 GIR. Hot putter saved me throughout, though I had two seemingly perfect birdie putts lip out. Altogether not a bad round.

44-50-94. No birdies, many doubles, 1 triple.

Ball striking was way, way, way off today. Frustrating.

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

shot 89 yesterday on a wimpy par 70 course.

Today was fun. 44-48-92.

First hole.....pop up drive. 2nd shot is a scud missile that hit the 150 stake and went 60 yards left. WTF. took an 8. 2nd hole. Blade tee shot left and hit a red tee box marker. smoked hybrid and saved par. Hole 8. Hit the pin from 150 out.

if there was an obstacle i was hitting it

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

38-37-75

4 birdies, 1 double

Was +3 thru 4 so good last 14 holes. Didn't play for $ today so I hit a few more drivers than I normally would. Had a lot of < 70 yard shots into greens... and now I need to start working on 60* wedge distance control on those 1/2 to 3/4 shots.

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

42-45-87. No birdies, too many doubles.

Ball striking improved from F-minus to a solid D. There were a handful of good shots but way too many that were just bad. Nothing else was particularly good.

For a course that doesn't have that many trees I sure was blocked out by a bunch of them. Had no shot other than driver off the ground four times. Three of those there were among my more successful shots of the day. The fourth would have been but for that pesky tree trunk that got in the way. What a hack.

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

37-40-77 (Par 69)

Played half decent today, I felt like ass though had my 2nd covid Jab yesterday and I'm actually just aching all over.

11 Pars/6 Bogeys/1 Double quite disappointing as I hit 11 out of 18 greens in regulation, 3 Putt 3 holes. Need to start making birdies.

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

the good from today: had my 2 closest shots to holes in one that I can recall. first one just slid past and finished 14" right/behind the hole. second one landed 3 feet dead in line front of pin and just skipped over the hole. ended up 6 feet behind but, imo, it could have easily hit the pin and dropped in.

bad from today: a complete mental breakdown on 7. tee shot: whiff. next shot dead left out of play. just re-teed. mistake after mistake = 12. jeesh. granted i had checked out after 8th shot.

oh yeah, 102.

edit: i didn't count the whiff.

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

36-42-78

4 birdies, 3 doubles, 4 3-putts

Played a Ryder Cup like match between my Saturday group and Sunday group. 4 fourball matches. My partner got 9 shots and two opponents got 3 and 5 (played off of me). The 36 on the front was with 2 3-putts. We were 2 up after 9.

Start the back 9 with a 3-putt bogey. Get to 16 and we are all square. I was +2 with the 4 3-putts (lovely). Proceed to double 18 but partner saved me and we halved the hole. 18th hole both opponents and my partner all hit it OB (lol). I hit a good drive and have 245y to the hole and lay-up. Both opponents hit the green in 5. I have 102y and hit the most god awful 102y 54* about 85y right into the drink. Drop and hit 5th to 15 feet. We all proceed to miss and halve with doubles for no blood. My team lost. LOL golf.

42-43-85. No birdies, 2 double bogeys. 73.0/142/6700 yards.

More normal today. Ball striking mostly OK. Didn't have to chip much, I even hit acceptable sand shots. Finally gave my high school putter a full round (I regripped it a couple weeks back, it's been unusable for years due to my being too lazy to regrip) and made a 40 footer for par on the first hole. Had really good birdie looks on the last two holes but didn't make either.

2 Birdies - 6 pars - 9 bogeys - 1 triple

Well I got what I asked for made 2 birdies on the front 9, Was level starting 6th hole and made a triple. Striking irons pretty good, driver and woods pretty terrible.

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

42 +40 = 82.

I played way better than 82 (I'll avoid the "that's the worst I could have shot" cliche). I haven't struck the ball this well in years. YEARS. I have the rhythm I've been working on and the right swing. I could use a bit better rotation, but I'm hoping that comes with losing a bit of weight (just started a $1000 weight loss bet).

Started off horribly after hitting a shot that didn't cut into a greenside bunker, flying it across the green to the tall grass, and hacking around for a triple. Other than that, nothing worse than bogey, and the bogeys were closer to pars than doubles, and the pars closer to birdies than bogeys.

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

Was a guest in a member-guest event over the weekend. Played pretty poorly - but slightly better than my partner but we had fun. I shot 85-82 as a 9 course handicap - it was stableford scoring so our many many bogies and pars didn't really do much as we only made 3 birdies in 36 holes and not even close to enough net birdies to stand a chance.

Friday night they set the front 9 up as a par 3 course all holes between 60 and 105 yards - some tees in fairways, some in rough, some on the next tee box hitting back to the previous green - lots of fun! -2 for us. We missed the money in that part of the event by 1 shot and I missed a 4 foot birdie putt on our last hole which is disappointing when you make it back to the clubhouse. Fun brag is we used my score on every hole; partner tied 3 I'd guess but as wedges and putting is the best part of my game it was my time to shine. Too bad in real golf you have to hit tee shots :shrug:

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

Played another 9 holes later in the evening didn’t really score but remember being level through 3 holes and then on the 200 yard uphill par 3 playing probably a bit longer, I went from not missing hitting a shot to miss hitting every shot on that hole. Topped tee shot into the small pond, dropped fatted it up the hill about 50 yards. Shanked a wedge, then fatted lob wedge then hit a flush wedge then proceeded to 3 putt. Next hole small par 3 stiffed it to 5 feet, got to love this game!

I’m really striking my irons really well probably the best I’ve hit them ever, getting the ball flight I’ve always strived for.

Super fun - it's a club with a lot of working members so the member/guest is just over the weekend and even Friday practice round doesn't see too many players so the Friday evening par 3 contest just before dinner was great. Went out in 6-somes and it still took less than an hour and a half

Actually did a pretty good job keeping it off, which I attribute to getting divorced in the middle of the bet and being back on the dating scene. Now I'm married again, and the weight has gradually slipped back on (it does not help that my wife does not seem to care, and could eat pizza every day of the week and not gain weight). Like, a lot back on.

Me and two friends in same spot, so we're doing four months, $1,000.00 to the winner (from each, so $2k total) based on percent lost. To make it somewhat friendly and encouraging, if anyone loses 12% they do not have to pay, even if someone beats them.
