I played my 3rd round of the year yesterday. I hit 15 greens in regulation but managed to shoot 77 with 6 three putts! 

My putter which worked great my first 2 rounds was M.I.A! It always amazes me how something that works great one day can be gone the next.

In golf everything is temporary. Sometimes this is a good thing..sometimes not..
Yeah, these early season greens are so variable. I had another 4 three-putts yesterday. Still shot a 43, but it could've been way better. My irons are looking good, but I had a couple of erratic drives. Definitely feeling better this week, though (might have had something to do with the beer I brought - beer cart girl isn't out yet).
I wish I could blame my poor putting on the greens but they were in very good condition! Just couldn't get the pace.
I would leave the first putt 4 or 5 feet short then miss the next one. Never had a beer til we were done..maybe that would have helped!

Re: The Golf Thread

 You're right! We used to be able to but there were some problems with individuals who couldn't control themselves so instead of dealing with those individuals they took the machine gun approach and banned drinking for all pros!

No way! Didn't know that. Golf without beer!? That's just damned unAmerican!

Re: The Golf Thread

First round of the year, heck 2 years, in the books---shot 85. 4 doubles and wayyyyyy too many bogies, no birdies. Struggled at first stay down and thru the shot, coming up and out is really a bad thing, thus the 85 . If I didn't chip and putt as good as I did it would've been a 105. Felt good to get out and the beer was mighty tasty

Re: The Golf Thread

Hope you feel better real soon pal.

i was encouraged with how it came around. my 4 doubles all came from me friggin TOPPING my t-ball or on a long second shot. for whatever reason i was pulling up and out resulting in moving my head quite badly, that's how you top it, and i was toppin it good  . guess i was to scared to get over on my left knee for fear of it giving out......funny how 4 or 5 beers took care of that fear and i could stay down and thru. Looking forward to giving it a try again tomorrow----big tourney comming up on May 19th, gotsta get practice in for that one. Not that I'll have to do too much cause Racer is my pardner

Re: The Golf Thread

Got in my 4th round of the year after work last night.   1st one that I walked 18 and its amazing that even after ski season your legs get tired after walking 6 miles.

Have not yet broken 80 for the year so that HCP is headed back up to where it belongs around a 6 or 7.  I had a good August last year and got down to a 3 but that is not sustainable for me.

Got a new Cobra Amp Cell for by B-day and it is sweet.  I just need to start hitting greens and making putts.
