Bull Run: 87

I have to post a blog here because I played much better today.  I just wanted to jot down some notes on what went right.  I shot an 87, but more importantly, it could very well have been a sub 80 round.  I lost 3 balls and 4 putted the 1st green, not really knowing […]

Laurel Hill Golf Club: 91 – Handicap: 13.4

Another bad putting round.  36 putts.  I was pulling all of my putts.  I only had 1 one putt.  I can’t shoot a good score with 36 putts.  My short game was out of whack today.  I did have a great driving day though, only missing two fairways all day.  I fixed a little something […]

Fort Belvoir Golf Club – Gunston: 92

Again, my driver was out of whack.  I just never felt comfortable this entire round off the tee.  I hit 4 fairways for 29% accuracy.  My 35 putts didn’t help either.  My up and downs were triffling. Not much to take away from today’s round.  My only saving grace was that this was the first […]

Piedmont Country Club: 107

Disaster.  I had 6 penalties, and 10 sand shots.  I couldn’t hit a fairway; I couldn’t hit a green.  This was borderline embarrassing.  After three consecutive rounds in the 80s, I thought was onto better scores, but today proved otherwise.  Back to square one. I don’t even know what to say.  Yeah, this is probably […]

Goose Creek: 84 – Handicap: 14

So, that’s three solid rounds in the 80s.  I’ve been keeping the weight on my left foot, and pivoting on the right, in hopes of keeping the hands in front of the ball on impact.  It’s been working, as I’ve been hitting some pretty solid shots.  I only hit 3 fairways today, so I’m convinced […]

Reston National: 83 – Handicap: 14.8

Played well today.  I used my Tee Time Golf Pass to get the greens fees at $35.  I shot a 41/42 on the par 71 course.  We played from the blacks, which is one up from the tips (gold).  I only hit 4 fairways, so my driver and woods need a little bit of work. […]

Westfields: 85

Shot one of my best rounds ever today at Westfields.  43 on the front 9, and 42 on the back nine.  I even got two triples, and two or three doubles.  Looking back, I made some terrible mistakes with club selection, and going for shots that I didn’t even have.  On the par 3, 17th, […]

Pleasant Valley: 43

Just played 9 holes, but played pretty well.  I was only 3 over after 7, then ended up double bogeying the last two holes.  The 8th hole, hooked my driver left into the woods, then chiped out, and thinned my iron to the green.  I used a 9-iron to chip to a downhill hole, and […]

South Riding: 93 – Handicap: 16.4

Hit 6 fairways and 3 greens.  I need to do a little better at these before I can shoot a better score.  I did have one four putt, which is always a score killer.  35 putts total.  I started off pretty hot, but had some miscues towards the end.  The usuals contributed to the errant […]

Penderbrook – 97

It’s been a while since I’ve played at Penderbrook. With good reason, of course. We were moving a long fine until we got to the 7th hole, and it took about an hour to finish the next three holes. The course is not that long…about 6150 yards from the blues. The greens are slow as […]
