46+46 = 92. 33% FW, 27% GIR, 31 putts. Was +4 after 6 holes, then followed that up with 2 holes where I apparently forgot how to play golf. Then three doubles and a triple on the back, along with 3 pars and 2 bogeys. Highlight of the day was a 293 yard drive on #18 (full disclosure - wind at my back and I hit the speed slot in the fairway where I got a real nice downhill rollout). Not a great score, but a nice day anyway. Nobody in front of us, we played as a twosome in separate carts and finished in 2:53 hours.
Thing are kinda slow around the house today so decided to hit the links in GC 2019. Played Ocean of Memories and The Club At Ravenswood. Shot 78 and 79 for the two rounds. Had a three hole stretch at Ravenswood with eagle, birdie, and birdie that saved the round.
Fun round. Had a few bad shots, some really good ones. Should have had a couple strokes on the front, but it never seems to work out at that place. It's a tough half. Really tight. Which is why the 86% fairways is awesome. Guarantee that's the highest I've ever had there. Worked in my favor to have 2 drivers in my bag still. One I'm going to sell with a shaft that's a bit soft for me, but worked great at the start without a warm up! lol Switched to my gamer once I got loose and started overpowering the other one.
Averaged 282 off the tee today with that 86%, too. Which is really really good for me. Love those Mavriks.
edit: Posted the Golfshot score because thegrint isn't as accurate for me now, but it looks like golfshot isn't either, even though it has my GHIN # linked to upload. It would be closer to a net 72.
So on the new Simulator tour website SGT there are 3 different tours, the WEB (shortest, easier tees), PGA (back tees), PRO (championship tees). I'm going to play in the WEB, and PGA mostly. So have to do Q-School to get a handicap.
I did 2 of my 4 Q-school rounds last night for the WEB tour. Shot +2, and +3. Pretty short course, only had to pull out the driver on about 5 holes each round. But a lot of fun.
Was finally able to get out. Sunny and 53 but it's golf. First course time since the Distance Bash back in February and shot 39 which I am super happy with given the situation. 2 bad tee shots and a duff out of the sand cost me some but I am not complaining. Not for first 9 out.
Update: Forgot to add some stats. 5 of 7 Fairways hit. 5 of 9 GIR ( 2 misses were both within 2 feet of the green )
Walked 18 with the push cart today. Very windy! Greens were recently aerated and still very sandy, cut very low so firm and fast.
They had no flag sticks. Center pins, but couldn’t really get a good read on them. I used gps and played to the middle number. Modified holes with cups halfway so Balls went half way down and didn’t have to worry about catching anything.
Dropped the loft on my driver from 10.5 to 9 just so see what happened and fight the wind. Don’t think it’ll stay there.
First round of handicap season was up and down. I went 39/49 for 88. Kept the ball in play and made a good birdie on the front. On the back things went downhill. Penalties, and couldn't get up and down at all. Closed with 4 straight doubles... ugh
