Played in a shamble so not sure what I really shot, but my guess is that I was around 83-84 if I had been playing my own ball. Hit some really good shots on a couple of holes so overall lots of fun.


I hope you took a big dump and clogged up the head. I'm just kidding, that's not nice. Just my way of saying that I think Trump's a douchebag is all.


I have become totally apolitical. I can't stand Trump. I couldn't stand Hilary. I think both sides are nuts and the system is broken. So when it came to playing on a major championship course, I ignored the politics. Simple.

One story I forgot. On one of the par 3's they had a wager hole. You place a bet and if you make birdie you got twice your money. The trick was that there was the regular flag and then 6 other putting green flags on the hole. You could make birdie into whichever hole you wanted. Well I agreed to do it mainly to donate $20. I noticed that 4 of the putting green holes were bunched together near a comfortable wedge shot, so I aimed for the middle of the 4 and damned if I didn't hit the ball about 2 feet from the hole - then fanned the putt. Wasn't big money, just embarrassing.

On Saturday: 108 (net 82) in our September Medal.

Couldn't get going for some reason, even with seven bogeys.

Pace was slow and then we got shouted at to hurry up by a group on the 4th tee when we were putting on the 5th (the pace of play was not OUR fault!!) I let that get to me and then started to feel rushed. Not cool.

Very tough pin positions didn't help anyone. One player in our fourball was on the 17th in two but carded a 7 as the ball kept running off the green. Two other players that day (different groups) carded 8s on that same hole, one from a GiR. The 17th is SI 14 on the card but played SI 1 on the day. :devil

(I managed a one-putt 4 on that hole, by the way!) :thumbs

Management admitted the hole was not placed appropriately and will speak with the groundskeeper concerned (apparently he's the only one there who doesn't actually play golf!)
Golf is too hard. Stupid golf.

I have noticed a similar situation at some of our courses. Perhaps the greenskeeper feels some of the standard positions are getting too stressed or worn so they put the hole in a less used (for good reason) position.

Of course, it could just be that my game has deteriorated sufficiently that I always put my approach in the wrong spot. :facepalm

I shot 80 yesterday, three putting the final hole. :fkno

One of the courses I played in TN resurfaced their greens w/ bermuda. Growing up in FL I knew that some of the pin positions they liked weren't going to be possible with bermuda once the grain grew in.

Sure enough about 18 months after replacing the greens the grain was in they mowed it short and on hole 2 they stuck a pin on the back left of the tri lobbed green. I had a 12' birdie putt from below the hole. I rolled the ball up and missed left the ball stopped about 4" from the hole then rolled back to my feet. It was impossible to have less than a 12' putt on that hole.

It took me 3 tries to make the 12'er though.

Just browsed some Skygolf scores. You all are playing regular golf, and shooting some decent scores. I am glad to see that. Me and Furr on the other hand are hanging out on the fringe. Of golf participation. Demographically speaking, we are just barely considered golfers.

I'm in a strange spot right now.

At the range things are going really well. I'm hitting the ball more consistent than I ever have and hitting so many shots "on the screws", but I have no desire to go play. I have no clue why either.

I'm on the opposite end. I can't get enough golf. Going to play another weekend round.

79 (+9) at Silver Lake. 2nd straight round under 80 on this course.

I have shot lower before, but today I made a triple and a double and still got under the line. That is encouraging, I should aim for even better scores.

The guy I played with actually said to me during the round: "Man, you're a really good putter." :lolz Today I tried a whole new routine. No more lining up the ball, and no more practice stroke. Just kind of pick a line, step up and stroke it. Inbee style! I started doing it at the end of my last round, somewhere in the hills of New Jersey and made a few putts that way so why not continue. It feels weird and kind of naked, but goddamnit I putted better than ever, from all distances especially the long ones. I mean, I hit very good and promising shots all around today, but the putting thing is really intriguing me. Guess I was bigly getting in my own way previously. Mechanically too though, I feel much better, now that I've got that tiny bit of hinge in the stroke. Whatever, just go with it man.

I reflected on the score on the 16th tee, and knew I needed to do +2 for the last three holes and I will admit I got kind of tense trying to do it. But I hit a pretty bawlz 3-iron on that 16th par 3, and some easy bogeys on the last two holes, even had a decent look at 78. Anyways the score doesn't really tell the story. I am swinging on the next level.

Had my best 9 yesterday with a -3 33 for the front. Short game was on fire with 2 sandy's (one for bird on a par 5), 3 relative tap ins for par from chips, and one chip in for birdie. Then I promptly started the back 9 Double, Bogey, Double to end any thoughts of being under par. Funny thing was that the first double and bogey really didn't have any bad shots, just a bunch of mediocre ones and the 2nd double was all due to the drive. Recovered to shoot a 75, +3 on the day.
