43, with two doubles. Course was pretty short, but a slope of 124, probably because it's pretty narrow. There's a couple of courses like this around here where the course is part of a 55 and older community. I like these courses for a quick nine, as they're usually in pretty good condition for the cost.

I SUCK from 100 yards in. Horrible. I kept hitting my driver because I'm playing out of my mind with it, but I would have felt a lot better hitting a bunch of 130 yards shots than the 90-100 shots I was giving myself.

Today I played at Claremont off of 185th off of 26, which I had never heard of before finding a deal on Oregongolf.com. Like I said above, nothing to write home about, but for 10 bucks it's certainly worth it. Yesterday I played at Wildwood, also because of a great deal through oregongolf.com ($25 for 18 and a cart). I like that course, I've played it before. Could never do it without a cart, though.

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

Shot 80 on a short Par 66 course today. It's a tough course with lots of water though, so I feel good about it despite the even par I was on the backside after 13 & then played awful after that. My putting is horrendous right now.

Shot 39 yesterday on a 9 hole course! With rental clubs too. Too bad it was a 28 par course.

Today I played from Championship (blue) tees. I shot an 81 @ Terra Lago South Course (AKA 'Landmark' home of PGA skins game 99-02'). 6401 yards, par 72, rating: 71.6, slope: 133.

I'm a 12 handicap.

Same course, early in the morning.... backed up. Shot a 94. First hole my ball hits a sign saying no carts past this point,and goes out of bounds. 2nd hole... OB. I pretty much lost my focus. I was hoping to fire around 81 or lower!!!


what a let down! 51/43 = 94


golf is a funny game.

We got to the 6th hole after about two hours, and there were 4 foursomes on the hole. One putting, one waiting at the tee, and two more behind them. We were a twosome. (Roddy Ranch in Antioch, CA) They gave us a rain check, which was nice.

88. Short game is KILLING me. Bad chipping, bad pitching, bad putting. Also went in about six bunkers.

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

Best round of the year so far: 83 at my old "home course." Went 43/41. My irons, again, were ON, my driver, which had been excellent, was not. I felt like scoring low, though, so rather than work through it like I'd usually do, I played smart and hitting shorter clubs off the tee.

41-40-81 at my favorite course right down the road. 12 putts on the front, 17 on the back. Other than that my driver and irons let me down at times...

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

Brag: got my second hole in one yesterday, hit a PW from about 137ish.

Brag: shot my lowest 9 hole score in the same round yesterday...32 on a par 34.

Beat: Now at work since 7:00 am at the same course.

Variance: Im 1-1-1 in match play against my boss, last year i only beat him 1 time out about 25 matches so im off to a good start.

Variance: 2 hole in ones and im only 20 and dont play often anymore because of school.

Shot 92 today from the tips at a local course here in Raleigh, Eagle Ridge (approx 6800 yards)...had a few 300+ yard drives but yet again the game inside 100 yards killed me...

This is an honest question, not a bash: if you're shooting 92, why the hell are you playing from the tips? I guess if you're hitting 300+ drives it gives you more of a distance challenge, but I just don't get people who insist (might not be you) on playing from the tips when they've never broke 90 in their life.

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

Shot a horrible 88 today. Drove the ball great. Could not hit a half decent shot from 100 yards and in. I'm so ticked it's not even funny.

I've been hitting my driver great and my irons down to my 9 have been great. My wedges are just falling apart and my chipping is god awful. I was leaving myself 15 and 20 foot par putts all day.

I've always been real good around the green and it's driving me nuts right now. With the way I'm driving the ball and hitting my irons I should be breaking 80 without trouble. If this keeps up I'm screwed when my driver does it's usual fall off of the face of the earth routine in a couple of weeks.

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

I played Valle de Sol in Costa Rica today, and went out to the first tee cold and made a quadruple on the first hole. I followed that with two doubles, and then was +11 on the final 15 holes for a 91.

I have an upcoming prop bet with a coworker about what I can score hitting no club all day other than my five wood (he suggested 140), the club I hit best. From hole 4 onwards, I hit my five wood for about 80% of all my non putting shots.

Played my golf leagues course afte work yesterday and shot a 41 over the front 9. (Par 37, 3 par 5's) I missed a 3 foot put that broke and missed the low side of the cup....

Man, so close from scratch golf over the front 9.

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

Played the back nine at Redtail in Portland yesterday morning. +13 over par, which is 10 strokes better than a week ago when I played it during a full round in light rain.

Drives were better than they've been in a while, but long hybrids and 3 wood was letting me down on the long holes, as well as the insanely slow greens because of all the dew (we started at 6:06 am). Redtail usually has quite fast greens during normal times, and later in the half-round they started to dry out, which made judging speed even tougher. It changed from one hole to the next. Mid irons and wedges played pretty well.

Redtail is quite a challenging course. The Oregon Golf Association has it ranked in it's top 20 hardest courses in the state. Great fun.

80 today with an unforced triple. Another reminder that if I can keep the ball in play off the tee and avoid going in too many bunkers, I can post a decent score.

101 after 18 holes (5th time out, third time on this course). Overall was decent except putting. 3-4 putts on every hole except 1 (2 putt - par). Screw putting.

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

First time out this year 57/52 for a 109....

....been playin on and off for a while...actually taking some lessons beginning this week.....figure its time to move on from being self taught

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

83. Started and finished strong, the middle of the round was like an out of body experience - no feel at all.

The finishing stretch started with a textbook birdie on a short (475 yd) par 5 - duck hooked drive, punch 3 iron from the left trees, punch 3 iron from the right treeline to 4 feet, 1 putt. What a game.
