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

33-38-71 (par 68 due to conditions

5 birdies, 3 doubles

It's pretty sad when you have that many birdies and you don't even sniff being under par. 31 putts so my only 1-putts were birdies.

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

36-44 80 :-/

Was -1 through 11 when the “oh **** you’re playing well” and “your best round ever is +1” thoughts started. Immediately triple bogie a shorter par 4. Bogie the 13th. Triple on 15 and doubled 18.

Hit 13 greens which I need to confirm but I’m pretty sure matches my most ever in a round. Could have made a few more birdies with a few more putts dropping. Oh well. Had a solid stretch and really just a 3 bad swings kept it from being a nice mid 70s or better round.

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

a couple of hypothetical questions:
what would your state of mind be if it were a par 62?
what would your state of mind be if it were a par 82?

I hope to get -4 at some point in a round. That’d be something.

I am in the “par is irrelevant” camp but the +/- isn’t as important as the relation to my best round and the kind of scores I want to be able to shoot. Going below 80 is definitely a mental thing for me. If every hole was a par 6 I’d still want to be shooting 75!!

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

44-45 = 89.

Yikes. Can't explain this one, but if I had to try, I had a really hard time adjusting to what were essentially winter conditions after a major storm Saturday night. Whole course was very soft, and I had a helluva time figuring out green speed, leading to multiple three putts.

I was actually only +2 going into #7 (with a three putt on #1 and a three putt on #6) before hitting it into fescue and making a very dumb decision to try to hack it forward, leading to a triple. Then proceeded to double the very easy #8 after barely pulling a wedge into the sand trap. Anyway, mentally it was all downhill from there. Worst round I've had since May.

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

46-43-89 Par 72.

Several blowup holes starting with the 1st, where I skulled a bunker shot across the green into another bunker and ended up with a triple. Couldn't make a putt, irons were leaking right, chunked a chip shot. Pretty bad all around.

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

39 for 9 holes +5

1 Birdie - 3 Pars - 4 Bogeys -1 Double

Driving was pretty good, Took Driver on 5 tee shots and hit 5 fairways. The main problem was the approach shot into the green, feel like I have a bit of rust with these.

Main highlights the 2 short Par 3's like max 120 yards I got both with in 10 feet. Holed one and 2 putt the other as I just blasted it through the break.

Hoping to play in the morning depending on if I wake up

Edit, on another Par 3 I basically topped a 4 iron into a ditch like 40 yards in front of me, Had no shot lie was terrible so just to hit a 8 iron and get it out, Went like 50 yards and then got up and down from about 100 yards out to make a half decent 4.

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.

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
Have this annual event again this coming Friday and Saturday. Friday is at home and Saturday is on the road.

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

37 +3 for 9 holes

2 Birdies - 3 Pars - 3 Bogeys - 1 Double

No 3 putts and hit 5 out of 9 Greens

Given myself a lot of decent Birdie opportunities recently, Had 2 Birdies through 9 yesterday as well.

Honestly can't beat tee'ing off at 7am being the 1st on the course. Great way to start the day! Was a bit fresh at first but by the 3rd the Sun started to rise and got a bit warmer.

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

I love early morning golf. In law school that's all I played. Great course had an early riser deal that included a hot dog and soda after, which usually ended up being 10:00.

I can't stand early morning golf. Wet grass and dealing with a rising sun. No thanks.

LOL, I can't stand afternoon golf. Plus in FL afternoon golf is almost non-existent in the summer months.

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

I would play more Mornings but getting up is my main problem I really am a **** sleeper and can never drift off

For as long as I can remember I don't think I've been asleep by 1am... Tee time's I've had the passed 2 days means I have to be out the door by 6am - 6.30am,


but honestly once you're out there it's bliss. Obviously only when the sun is out, you wouldn't catch me out there in the rain at that time

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

Club vs Club match, at home today.

Modified Chapman we shot -1 (2 birdies, 1 bogey). We had to give opponents 3 shots. We were tied to the last hole. It's normally a par 5 and the #1 handicap hole. Today it played as a 122y par 3 and WE HAD TO GIVE THEM A SHOT. I was last up and drained a 25 footer to tie the match.

Scramble on the back and we had to give them 1 shot. We were -5 and won 3&1.

9 holes of fourball and 9 holes of individual matches tomorrow.

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

Day 2 of Club vs Club

Fourball Match - Lost 1 down

Played off of my handicap. Partner got 2 shots, opponents got 4 and 5 shots.

We were 1 down with 2 holes to go. Opponents get a shot on the second to last hole. I stick an approach to 4 feet, they end up with bogey before I even putt. It was a right to left slider and I hit the line and speed I wanted, not enough break played and hole is tied.

Move on to the last hole a relatively short par 5, no strokes given. One opponent smothers a tee shot. Second opponent hits in fairway bunker. My partner pulls it and it blocked out by trees and has to pitch out. I nut a 3 wood and have 174y to the hole. One opponent is basically out of it after his second. Second one hits a good one out of the bunker. I fail miserably and hit it a groove and a half low and in the bunker. We end up with a tie on the hole and lose 1 down.

Individual Match - Lose 2 down

I had to give 3 shots.

Immediately start 3 down. Made par on the 1st but lost to a birdie net eagle. (see saltiness in Misc Golf thread). Hit one OB on the second hole then can't find my provisional. 2 down. Hit approach in bunker on 3rd hole and have a lump of sand behind the ball. Make bogey, same as opponent but he gets a shot, 3 down after 3.

4th hole I have an 18 inch putt to tie the hole, and they don't give it to me. I make it. 5th I knock it to 2 feet and make birdie, 2 down. 6th I make par which is good enough, 1 down. 7th I short side myself, lose hole, 2 down. 8th opponent is in for par and I make a nice 25 footer for birdie, 1 down. 9th is a reachable par 5 where I have to give a shot. I had 214y left to get home in two, chunk it a bit, wind up short. End up making bogey to lose 2 down.

Lessons Learned

My driver is complete **** when I am under pressure. Good thing the 3 wood was working good. I made a crazy amount of putts over the 2 rounds. Had 4 birdies today. Only miss was that one 4 footer, otherwise I made everything I should and then some.

I also learned that my irons can crumble under pressure. I need to stop trying to hit hard iron shots and just take the extra club with a smooth swing, especially under pressure shots.

Went out at 7am last weekend, first time I ever was the first group out. Only went so early because I had to work that afternoon.

Felt odd to be leaving my house in the dark to play golf, but once I got going I liked it. 3 hour round and back home in time for lunch and a nap before work.
