    The golf ramble thread

    For things about your golf game that really don't have anywhere else to go.

    I hit nine fairways again today (out of 12). One fairway I missed bad, the other two were good misses. Normally I am at five or six. So this is two of the last three rounds I am at 75% of fairways hit.

    The guy I played with told me he noticed I was taking a divot on the OTHER side of the ball most of the time today, which is something I have been working on forever, it seems!

    Went to the course on Saturday evening late to walk nine holes. Realized I forgot socks when I went to put my shoes on. Had to walk back to the clubhouse and buy socks. Fortunately they had a buy 1 get 1 free sale going on so I'm keeping one pair in the car for the next time I forget to bring socks.

    I hit 12 fairways Friday enroute to a fantastic round. I think that's because the ball plugged on every shot.

    had a somewhat frustrating beginning to my round on sunday. played on the southeast part of town, and they had been hammered with rain the day before, more so than the normal afternoon showers. i arrived with enough time for my warmup, only to find out they had a tournament that morning (i booked on golfnow), but i was going out before the tournament. i purchased a small bucket of range balls, and then was told just to hit off the pyramids for the tournament. oh well, what's $6? get to the range, and not a single available area to hit from. wait a good 5-10 minutes for something to open up, start my warmup, then get called up to the 1st tee 15 minutes before my tee time. didn't get to hit driver, chip or putt. get to number 1 in a hurry, and 3 guys are waiting on me. hit the fairway, but come up short and in a bunker on my approach. the bunker has standing water, and of course my ball is in it. awesome. take my drop and penalty stroke, and blade the bunker shot over the green into rough that is soaking wet and muddy over the green. chunk that, finally get on, and 2-putt. the round ended up being enjoyable other than a complete breakdown on the back 9, but that start was SO frustrating.

    Yesterday I hit more fairways and greens than I had ever done before....... and then couldn't make a putt to save my life.

    10 Pars, and a bunch of those were two putting within 6 feet. NOT GOOD

    I keep hovering around my PB score (at a non home course), but I just can't break through.

    Played yesterday. Hit 13 GIR but, one in the water, had 2 3-putts, and didn't make a putt over 6 feet for a 3 over 75. Seemed like every putt I hit looked like it was going in 5 feet from the hole and then tailed off at the very end. SO close to a really good score.

    My best friend and golf league partner finally had a "it all comes together" day. He shot 49 on the front (with a birdie and two 8's) but shot 36 (+1) with two birdies on the back. Fun to watch.

    First time he broke 90 this year and maybe ever, I am not sure!

    Hope it continues tomorrow night!

    It was weird to golf yesterday without a goal to work towards. I tried to just enjoy the game but as a guy who usually grinds it out its a mental space I'm not familiar with.

    I'm not looking forward to returning to my home course today. I have spent the past 5 weeks or so playing nicer courses with greens that roll true and probably speeds of 8.5-10.0. *sigh* back to the ol' 6.0 green speed, or less, depending on whether it gets mowed today.

    good point! I did still drop in the bunker. so I guess that 89 is an 88 instead. too bad it esc'd to 88 anyway :)

    Correct and I believe you can move the ball to another part of the bunker, no closer to the hole. At least that's how we play from the mud pits we have here in the mornings.

    More often than not we just have to pull the ball all the way out and drop outside the bunker.
