  1. I left work early today to get the windshield replaced on my car, so I decided it was a perfect day to get out and play nine. The weather was wonderful, 85 degrees and a slight wind. I did have to set up an umbrella on Johnny 5 to keep from roasting. I'm not going to say I shot well or bad, it's my first round in two months due to a loss of confidence in my game. I treated today as practice and just getting back into the rhythm of the game. My round started out rough, I had to play a different course than normal and there's no practice area. I lost three balls on the first three holds and hit a fourth OB that I found. Those first holes I started out +3, +3, and +8. That third hole was brutal, three lost balls didn't help much. At least it was pretty out. After that, I settled into a rhythm and had a run of double, double, and three bogeys. One of the highlights of my round was being 2 feet over the green on the first par five and hitting the green in regulation on the second, although I 3 putted the second one from 39 feet. In fairness, it was an uphill breaker I aimed 6 feet to the right of and just didn't hit it hard enough. Driver was horrible most of the day, but I hit my irons better than I have in a long time. The putter was really good most of the round except for a couple of 3 putts on tricky greens. On the 9th I hit my best shot of the day from 47 yards out, left of the flag into the slope and it rolled down to 11 feet. Unfortunately, it left a downhill left to right breaker I ran 13 feet past the hole. Overall, I shot a 60 with 20 putts which normally would be a little discouraging but with the way I hit my irons I'm feeling pretty good.

  2. It’s fairly common knowledge here about “The Corner” in my office that houses 3-5 golf bags and sets at any given time. Well after shooting 101 today. I’m trading them all in for these Just kidding….or am I Parties in Robs office!

  3. Played a scramble today for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. This is a 2-day event in Rochester which draws hundreds of players. It's often just a death march but the cause is phenomenal. I was lost off the tee and hit some decent irons. Made up for it with my short game today which included a hole out from 30 yards for eagle and knocked in a few putts over 10 feet. The good news was, My final two long irons were solid...a good omen headed into the next round. We shot 59 and for the first time since I've ever played, we won the event. Didn't think we could pull it off after 4 straight pars to start (which included a missed birdie from 3') but 2 eagles were good enough.

  4. Unremarkable 43 over nine holes yesterday morning but finally got on the right track again for this morning's 18: - 38/40 = 78 (+6) - 8/15 FIR - 8/18 GIR (3 birdies) - 29 Putts (12 2-putts, 7 1-putts) Finally figured out how to get rid of the hooks that have been plaguing my early season. Driver was very good for most of the round. I had two bad double bogies on the back nine, but managed to stuff a wedge to two feet on 17 for my third (and very rare for the hole) birdie. Just need to clean up the big numbers and something around even par should be in the future.

  5. I am so happy now I could cry. I’ve struggled with my right hand taking over on the downswing and I get far too steep. There have been so many ideas in my head that I’ve conjured up trying to translate into a certain feel. Today, it translated. I told myself to start feeling the back of my right hand pointing to the ground as soon as possible to prevent that takeover. It made more sense than thinking about what my left hand and wrist do through the downswing. Combine that with good tempo and it was so pure. Solid drivers and some super feel good 5 irons.

  6. Absolute perfect day. Started cool in the 50s but sun came out around hole 9 and warmed up. Was gorgeous. Tale of 9’s for me. 44/37. I was discussing with Bryan after the round that I remember just 3 years ago 44 was a goal and was happy with that, now I felt like I struggled. Love this game. I had 4 doubles on the front (3 of which had penalties of the tee), 4 pars and a bird on 9. From there I went 6 pars a bird and 2 bogeys. Was a great back. I had two way misses going on the front and awful wedge play. Yet again putting saved my @$$ multiple times. I hunkered down on 9 and worked through it, was nice to be able to do that. couple highlights:

  9. Finally got my first round of the year in! 9 holes with my son and brother. We all had a good time too. Told myself I was going to relax and enjoy it as there’s been a lot of business and stress the past few weeks between work and trying move. Focused on having good tempo and took an extra club into a lot of greens…. Very satisfied with the results! I didn’t putt particularly well, which didn’t lead to any 3-putts, but I missed 1 or two I think I could have had with a good stroke. Despite shooting a 1 under 32 (one birdie, 8 pars) the day belonged to Jackson. He had a blast and was excited to get back out there. He also “beat” my brother by 1 stroke, but I think Jackson might have forgotten a swing or two. No really long drives, but two were 260 on the nose and another 253. All were night high flights, and the last few were gentle draws. Nothing to complain about there. The last drive was 234, I tried to hit a little cut into a short par 4 and just went a bit too far right in the rough, but was at the front of the green. Jackson had the best drive of the day… 134ish yards! C9576E95-7998-4B76-A4B1-31A9FEB8C846.MOV Hopefully will be posting here a lot more now that we’ve broken the seal, but man did it feel good to get out and play a round!

  10. Played one of my favorite joints in PHX. The Raven. I was a fill in for my buddy's men's league. Played really well on the front 9 and shot 39. But I completely $#!T the bed on the back with a devastating 47. The heat today just destroyed me at about hole 10 Picked up this dope murdered out cap Beautiful course And finally.. this is no joke. This actually happened. Luckily the hole ran downhill but not until about 300 yds so I still had to get there. 354 yds!

  12. Silly game we play. Friend of mine is in town from Florida, so between my normal rounds, two rounds with him and one additional round (hey, I already had the day off!), I've played 90 holes in about 48 hours. Tuesday was another rough day with hooks dominating all of my swings. Shot 90 at home and 85 at another course with my friend. Both not great scores. Yesterday morning I realized my grip had gotten too strong and that was the cause of the hooks. Posted an 80 (79 ESC) at home, highlighted by reaching the 500+ yard par 5 in two going driver hybrid and two-putting for birdie. Remove one bad triple bogey and that round would have been great. In the afternoon I played a tougher track with my friend and just had one of those rounds where things went my way. My driver was not good (recurring theme so far this season), but my putting and short game were on fire. I ended up with a 77 (!) for the best round I've ever had there. This morning I had a lot of ups and downs on my way to an 86 at home. Driver is killing me right now and just leaving me with too many recovery shots. Putter was good, not as good as yesterday, but I could not buy a putt inside of five feet it seemed. Lots of lip outs from very close range. If I could get the driver sorted and my 50-100 yard game on track I'd be scoring so much better. Putting and short game have been great so far this year, much better than in past. But way too many punch outs off the tee and too many wedges ending up long off the greens.

  13. I wasn't going to post my birthday round today; it's really not worth reading... but here it is anyway. Rain quit just before wen teed off. My wife and I played with another couple that we play with frequently. The problem was that in front of us was our Men's Club member-guest followed by a small corporate tournament... bad day to play!! When we got to the #3 tee, we were the 5th group on this 350y par 4; group on the green, group in the fairway, and two other groups waiting on the tee in front of us. Aargh!! When it was our turn to tee off, we had been on the course for an hour and played two holes!!! I was ready to quit, but my wife and friends said "What else are we going to do?"... I said "Go to the bar!" I was overruled. The pace picked top a little when we got to the par 5 #5, but we still had to wait on every shot... the entire round! It was still golf, and we were outside in warm sunny weather with friends, but... dang!!! Couldn't get into any kind of rhythm. I had 12 bogeys and 6 pars for an 84... bogeyed the first 7 holes, but at least I kept doubles off the scorecard.

  15. We're heading back north in another week so had to make a last stop at the Sarasota PGA Superstore since it's only 30 min away. Wife immediately went to the discount rack for clothes - I on the other hand was looking for a 3 wood. An even though lefty stuff is scarce, I found what I was looking for. LTDx with a Smoke iM10 shaft. Wonder how they knew it was on my wish list. However, I did keep going back and forth between it and the Radspeed 3 Wood with a Tensi shaft, but my wife encouraged me to spend the extra $$ for the LTDx. I love shopping with her. As an added +, it came with a lamkin grip instead of the std ARRCOS grip so I can immediately install a Shotscope sensor and not wait til I install my MCC+4.

  16. Got out to play today with my son @Josh Ross. It was my first round in almost a year and a half due to some health issues. Managed a few pars, hit the ball the best I have in years, and even holed out from 100 yards for eagle on the last hole. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while.

  17. A beautiful morning for 9 holes. Sunny and 73°. Another round with the driver not getting me into trouble. The only lost ball was into a pond on a par 3. The highlight of my round was my first sand save of the season for par. Chipping is still giving me problems more practice is for certain. My putting was solid for me, no 3 putts and two 1 putts. Seeing continued improvement in my iron play. All in all it was a good round for me.

  18. Hosted my annual Buddy Trip last week(Thur-Sun) for 16 players, including me. I rented 4 4 bedroom houses and we played a different course every day. Thursday…North Shore GC. Shot 88…always a great course. Friday…Stonegate at Sola Vita-Cypress course. Shot 91…disappointed with course conditions We also played the Oaks course front 9 twice as a team scramble…lotta fun. Saturday…Falcon’s Fire GC. Shot 92….awesome course Sunday…Hawk’s Landing GC. Shot 92…somewhat disappointed as the fairways used to be covered with grass. Overall, we had terrific weather and all had a great time except for one player. He was driving back to the rental houses Thursday afternoon and was sideswiped by an Audi on the turnpike. His car was totaled and the Audi drove off never stopping. Sore and bruised, he did play Sat & Sun but could not turn to hit his driver…

  20. I had another really good round on Sunday. I feel like the pieces are starting to come together. My ball striking was really good, as I was releasing the club better. I put a new putter in the bag, and it was the Mizuno OMOI and it was much heavier than my old Ping Anser. My short game really struggled, but it still turned out to be a good score. I messed myself up on 17, I counted my score and if I finished at par I would break 80. I bogeyed 17 from middle of fairway 90 yards out. I made par on 18, but very happy with where my swing is at the moment. Score: 80 Fir: 9/ 14 GIR 6/18 Putts: 32

  21. Day Two, same course. Some days you get the bear, and some days the bear eats all your golfballs. Before starting out I dropped by the resort’s gift store and found a bin full of used golfballs, six for $7, presumably found among the tall grass, creeks and ponds. I felt a little better knowing I wasn’t the only one losing balls in the course. Then, judging by the age of some of the brands and models, I realized that the shop was making easy money finding and selling the same lost balls over and over again. My game was marginally better, the shanks left me, and once I admitted to myself that I’m used to playing with wider and straighter fairways, shorter roughs and zero water hazards, I relaxed and just enjoyed the good weather and scenery. After all, I walked the afternoon with deer, geese, a hare and a heron. Lesson learned The next time I play an unfamiliar coastal course that works hard to blend in with the next-door wildlife preserve, I’ll bring my own bag of old, cheap ionomer balls and leave the urethanes at home.

  22. I wore a pair of baby blue shorts and a pink shirt to go play golf in last week. As I'm walking out the door my wife said. "Where are you going to a baby reveal party at the course" Not to be outdone I quickly replied. "You better hope it's a girl because I have to take the wrong color off"

  23. Well I found out the hard way that doing yard work every day for two weeks straight after work and all day on Saturday's wasn't good for my golf game. I parred the first hole with a one putt. Then 4 bogies in a row then parred out the front 9. Back 9 was a little better with three bogies and a birdie. My highest round in a long time with a 77. Poor driver performance today. I only hit 2 fairways on the front and 4 on the back. I know it was just me being all sore and stiff. Went to the range after my round and worked out my driver issues. Felt much better after the range work.

  24. Final day of our Highland Fling. Singles. I was pitted against a relentless bulldog. Although I played well, he played better. I couldn't shake him and he closed me out after 17 holes 2 down.

  25. Got out on day release from quarantine yesterday (It's actually day 6 so I'm allowed to leave the house with a mask). Weird day, shot a +13 48 front and a +4 39 back for an 87. I guess your playing partners do make a difference. The two brothers I played the front with were hackers but they left after 9 and I played by myself on the back.

  26. Was sitting on the couch last night with my wife doing my normal Sunday evening thing of seeing what my week looked like & trying to see where to wedge 18 holes in. Later in the week looked terrible so I figured I'd see what I might find for today. Hop on the LA City Golf, check times. See 6:20 AM Rancho park. Immediately look over to my wife & ask as nicely as possible what her morning looks like and if she can take our daughter to school. The sound of 'Y' was barely out of her mouth before I clicked to book hoping that it had not disappeared in the 10 seconds it took me to ask the question. (Those of you in LA will understand how cutthroat Rancho times are). Cut to this morning, I'm so glad I played. 41/39 80 with a lipped out birdie on 18, a really really dumb three putt bogey on 10 , and lots of very close almost up and downs. It's still my personal best both score wise and differential (8.5) and its far and away the most complete round of golf I've ever played. I was focused, sharp, and made mostly good decisions. (I cannot recommend Decade foundations enough.) I hit 12/14 fairways 8/18 GIR and recorded my first card in a while without a double. I'll give a lot of credit to a suggestion from my instructor to positively reinforce before nervy (& all shots). Told myself I was going to make solid smooth contact with any easy swing before every shot and mostly did. The capper to the round was one of my playing partners being absolutely shocked that I wasn't a single digit cap, and saying it was really fun watching me play when we walked off 18. Never had that happen before.

  27. Hi, Morris, This is Saul, next door. I've been riddled with guilt for a few months and have been trying to get up the courage to tell you face-to-face. When you're not around, I've been sharing your wife, day and night, probably much more than you. I haven't been getting it at home recently. I know that's no excuse. The temptation was just too great. I can't live with the guilt and hope you'll accept my sincere apology and forgive me. Please suggest a fee for usage and I'll pay you. - Saul. Morris, feeling enraged and betrayed, grabbed his gun, went next door, and shot Saul dead. He returned home, shot his wife, poured himself a stiff drink, and sat down on the sofa. Morris then looked at his phone and discovered a second text message from Saul. SECOND TEXT MESSAGE: Hi, Morris. Saul here again. Sorry about the typo in my last text. I assume you figured it out and noticed that the darned Spell-Check had changed "wi-fi" to "wife." Technology, huh? It'll be the death of us.

  28. 81 in the Saturday Skins game, best round of the year, but so disappointing. Made 4 birdies, could have made 6 or 7 if I'm honest, dropped massive putts, 28 total... had two lost ball doubles and a pick up triple... 81. Just complete pull hook city costing me strokes, so I'm back to old familiar, my Mizuno ST180 for the next bit. With a tournament coming up and no chance I'm buying from DDC, it seems the right play for the season You've never seen someone so mad to win 12 dollars in a 50 cent skin game.

  29. Played on Saturday at my local course, went 37/39 for a 76 (+5) First hole was the best hole of the day. Plays downhill, and bombed the drive 294 next to the green side bunker, pitch was not great, but poured in the birdie putt. Lost a ball on the second, but we can skip that. Hit the par 5 5th in 2 for the first time in a while for a second birdie. Silly green side play, cost the even par front 9. Driver was hot on the front with my shortest shot being 253, but hitting driver of 294, 253, 256, 284, 284. Lost the diver a bit on the back for a few holes leading to a 3 hole bogie stretch having to play from the trees. I was very pleased with approach play today, my worst area traditionally. I found myself taking enough club, getting some better shaft lean that I had been missing, even went long on a couple holes, and only missed 12% short (none short on approaches longer than 200 according to Shot Scope). A couple of meh shots from 90 years probably kept my strokes gained from being an all time high. Looking to keep this up and I know even lower scores will come. Overall solid start to the season this year. Now if only the black flies in my yard would stop trying to carry me away so I could practice a bit more a home.

  30. Well I did it, I bought the Mizuno OMOI 2 black putter!! Happy birthday to me! I tested it against Scotty Cameron Newport 2, COBRA Grandsport 35, and Odyssey Tri-Hot 5k. Did not get along with Scotty, and I really liked the Cobra. In the end it came down to Odyssey and Mizuno, with the Mizuno being the one.

  31. Yesterday was a long, hot day. We started with a twosome in front of us that had a fivesome in front of them. We should have asked for our money back and went home... hindsight and all.. The fivesome was incredibly slow; the twosome was incredibly bad. They were everywhere off the tee... couldn't get to a green in less than 4 shots each and probably 3-5 putted every hole. I know people have to learn how to play, but pick some time other than prime time weekends to do it! Anyway... I shot 39 on the front. At the turn (after 2.5 hours) we figured more beer was going to be needed for the back. We were right! We waited no less than 10 - 15 minutes on every hole. The beer didn't last long. I ended the back with a 44... after 3 hrs. 15 min. Not a terrible score considering, but I don't understand how my brother and I always seem to have these people in front of us instead of behind us. The twosome offered to let us play through, but we would have had to wait on the fivesome anyway. So, we just drank beer and waited. It was an enjoyable day, really... just loooong! I don't understand why courses will let a fivesome out on a busy weekend. Oh well.... I hope next week is better. It almost has to be...right?

  32. My club is having our annual Highland Fling tournament (Ryder cup style) and today we played 3 9 hole matches. Match #1 was best ball. After 4 holes, my partner and I are down 4! Tough road now. I make a long putt to half the next hole and we're dormie. I hit a nice drive and have 108 yards to the pin, hit the shot a bit past the pin and to the left....still a makable birdie putt. The other twosome have reasonable par putts. I burn the edge of the cup and we lose the match. Match #2 is alternate shot. My playing partner for this match struggled. We lose the match 3 down with 1 to go. Match 3 is another best ball. All square through 7 holes. I birdie the 8th hole to go 1 up and we're guaranteed at least 1/2 point. My partner birdies the last hole for the win and full point. Tomorrow -- 18 hole single match play and I'm squared off against the guy from the first match who waxed us. Looking forward to taking him down!

  33. So you know how high school team coaches like to say "It's a building/development year"? Well that's the way I'm looking at my last round (and not as a train wreck disaster sloppy mess ) Was out there trying to apply some of the good stuff from my recent lessons and, of course, while it's still new ... it's still a little uncomfortable when actually trying to hit golf ball to a target..... So a lotta lotta misses buuut .. on the flip side even tho the misses were ugly none of them were really all too terrible. Seemed to find some overhanging branches on a few tee shots which - perversely - I'm gonna consider a bit of progress as these were right pushes vs low-left pull hooks... Putting, though, really was a disappointment - last round had a good handle on both speed and line, and in my warm-up for this round was putting the ball to where I wanted like 9 / 10 times. Oh well I'll just have to say it again: Work In Progress.

  34. Played my league round this past Wednesday. Practiced putting throughout the week up to the round...what I should of done is actually hit the driver and irons more as well While the driver didn't go too wonky on me, the irons were just all over the place. Oh, and the putting wasn't sharp either which contributed to a less than stellar round. I will admit, our closing two holes, a par 5 and par 4 I kind of gave up on especially the par 5 which I went for the green in two out of frustration (which I never do since water comes into play) and ended up with a bad lie a little short of the green, contributing to a bogey and the last hole I was 4' away on a left to right breaking putt for par. Burned the left edge of the cup (did that a lot during this round - I should of just aimed at the center of the dang cup!) Oh well, there's always next week! MDGolfHacker

  35. As I'd hoped my home course did indeed feel a mile wide after my last two rounds. 40/43 83 in a men's club tourney. I flirted with 80 all day and played pretty well save for #14 when I forgot how to play golf and tripled. 9 Pars on the day, which may be a personal record for me. My putting was lights out today except for a single three putt -- 31 total putts, two 30+ ft putts to get up and down + a ton of of them that burned the edge leaving me with 6" tap in's for bogey, same for all the pars I made in regulation. The par put was 1' or less. Just couldn't get a birdie to drop. If I'd been a bit luckier the score could have been in exceptional territory. Short game was also pretty exceptional for once. Left myself with a lot of reasonable chances. Off the tee and on approach I was okay, not great, but reasonable. I've been trying to smooth things out, but doing the towel drill tucked under my trail arm. I decided to just swing at that tempo all day and surprise, surprise, a smoothly swung iron that hits the center of the face goes further than aggressively swung hit off the toe or heel. Credit to my instructor on that one. He posted a video of his swing (which he rarely does) this morning and I thought man I just want to swing smooth like that all day... which became my swing thought for the day.

  36. Kinda been hacking the last few rounds, thinking about other things. My “new” swing sort of was slipping away and I didn’t really notice. Then on the 13th after a drive behind a tree, I had to hit a draw. then I started thinking about how to hit a draw, and then I remembered all my recent lessons, and how I’d been slipping away from them. So, I went through the lessons set up and swing, and darn if I didn’t his a great shot with a nice draw around that tree. I played to par the rest of the round and was happy that I remembered. moral of the story is that it can be very easy to stray from “new things”, but if you do, don’t be stubborn stupid, and get back onto that pony…

  37. Well, today I made it to 39 years old (17 years longer than I expected((dirt bikes, dangerous things…)). To celebrate I’m headed to play 18. Hopefully I can shoot a par of 39’s. Seems unlikely, but one can wish.

  39. I'm in Florida this week. Played a in a celebrity fund raiser over the weekend, and played really well. Ended up 2nd. Then played with my uncle yesterday.... started double, double, triple. I shrugged it off, kept a good attitude an finished the front with 5 pars and a birdie, 41. Took a quadruple on the 10th... then 4 birdies an eagle and 3 pars, 34. Craziest 75 I've ever shot.

  40. Had a nice practice session this afternoon... Started out with some putting - step 1 is distance control on longer putts across the green, and then on medium length putts to a flag; then I do short putts from different spots around a flag - only using two balls and never doing the same putt twice. Then to the end of the range with three close flags set up - don't even know the distances .. somewhere between near 20 to around 40 I'm guessing; I take one wedge and try different types of shots to each flag, then another wedge, repeat, and so on. Mix in a few fuller swings here and there and then quickly back to the partial shots. Working on clean contact and developing better distance control. Been using an alignment stick more often, too, as I'm pretty sure I'm usually slightly open OR closed to target on too many of my golf shots.... Then to the other end of the range that has a fairly deep closely mown area in front so you can chip and pitch and see the rollout. Worked on some high and low shots .. generally producing close to what I was planning .. and also did a few ladder drills .. which I can see I need to do more of! Then had a fun surprise - a guy near me recognized me and came over to say Hi .. we had windsurfed together about like THIRTY years ago!! Yes, we exchanged #s and will get together for a round soon! Then back to the putting green for a bit for a few more distance and short putt drills. All in all just a nice mellow almost two hours outside on a sunny, warm day (how f*&#in lucky are we when we get to do stuff like this??!!??)

  41. This game is crazy!! Played one of the biggest roller coaster rounds ever on Saturday. 3 3 putts, 2 balls OB, 5 birdies and shot 75. Not a single birdie on a par 5, which for me is unheard of. All 3 putts were after being on par 5's in 2. Sunday was a little more flatline 3 birdies 2 bogeys but 2 stupid doubles and another 75.

  42. A young man shopping in a supermarket noticed a little old lady following him around. If he stopped, she stopped. Furthermore she kept staring at him. She finally overtook him at the checkout, and she turned to him and said, "I hope I haven't made you feel ill at ease; it's just that you look so much like my late son." He answered, "That's okay." "I know it's silly, but if you'd call out 'Good bye, Mom' as I leave the store, it would make me feel so happy." She then went through the checkout, and as she was on her way out of the store, the man called out, "Goodbye, Mom." The little old lady waved and smiled back at him.. Pleased that he had brought a little sunshine into someone's day, he went to pay for his groceries. "That comes to $121.85," said the clerk. "How come so much? I only bought 5 items." The clerk replied, "Yeah, but your Mother said you'd be paying for her things, too." Bet you thought this was going to be a tear jerker, didn’t you? Dating in 1960 You need to be able to remember the era to really enjoy this.... It was a hot Saturday evening in the summer of 1960 and Ted had a date with Peggy Sue. He arrived at her house and rang the bell. "Oh, come on in!" Peggy Sue's mother said as she welcomed Ted in. "So, what are you and Peggy planning to do tonight?" she asked. "Oh, probably catch a movie, and then maybe grab a bite to eat at the malt shop, maybe take a walk on the beach..." "Peggy likes to screw, you know," Mom informed him. "Is that so?" asked Ted, incredulous. "Yes," said the mother. "As a matter of fact, she'd screw all night if we let her!" "Well, thanks for the tip," Ted said as he began thinking about alternate plans for the evening. "Have fun, kids," the mother said as they left. Half an hour later, a completely disheveled Peggy Sue burst into the house and slammed the front door behind her. "The TWIST, Mom!" she angrily yelled at her mother. "THE DAMN DANCE IS CALLED THE TWIST!!!"

  43. A pitiful round today that end up with the same score as yesterday... 84. I'm just not hitting the ball well; I don't have any strength and my back hurts when I make a full rotation through the ball... so often I don't and the ball drifts right. Couple that with poor chipping and mediocre putting, I'm making too many bogeys and not enough par saves. The one good thing today was that at 77º, it was a shorts and polo shirt day. Warm weather is here!!

  44. I played my worst round in years but was so glad to be back on the course with my dad. Especially seeing that eagle! We knew it was good but it was a severely elevated green and we had no idea it was in the hole until we went to look. Such a great day of golf!

  45. I decided to sneak in another round yesterday between weather systems. I played Beaverhead GC solo as my playing partner called just as I arrived to say he had to head up I15 towards Butte because his son's car had flatlined... as in went stone dead from 80 mph . So, I played a 2 ball format and pitted a Srixon Q-Star against a TP5. I started off with a bogey and DB but had two birdies on that same hole from the other tee box... this game ceases to amaze and amuse me . Q-Star 44/41, TP5 43/44. Overall, ball striking was a little lackluster... some gems mixed in with ho-hummers. I had several drives with both balls hit well and on nearly identical ball flight. They were within a yard of one another but the Q-Star was the lead dog. On approaches, they played similar leaving me with that consistent result of wondering if there truly is a ball that best fits my game . Chris @Thin2win says there is and maybe we'll have a chance during the PNW Meet-up to find one. Anyway, the golf Gods were good to me as, while hitting my approaches into #18, I noticed 3 tents on the driving range. Are they setting up for a BBQ (which they sometimes do)? Nope... those are OEM tents... as in Callaway, PING, and Taylormade!! Seeing that only one guy was hitting, I hastily putted out and made a bee-line for them. I've been shopping for a 3w with the hopes of getting some additional gap between my G400 5w and 3w. If you care to know what I found out, head over to the "3 Wood Options" thread.

  47. Played an up and down game today. Started the first 9 with par or bogies then had a very poor 4 or 5 holes and closed out with a decent streak of par or bogies. Figured out I was standing too far away from the ball and my ball striking got really bad in the 4 or 5 holes. Got back to my normal stance and hit the ball better, further, and I was able to control the ball both directions. 92 was a nice start to the year and haven’t played since last September
