  9. Birdie on 9!! That’s as hell of a green!! Nice job. Save that scorecard to post when the US Open is there next June, so you can say “I don’t see what’s so hard?”

    How'd you play?

    My oh My!! What a round of golf today!! My wife and I were joined by 2 regulars at the club since we didn't have a foursome. Tee time was 7:02 and it was chilly and breezy; 60º. I had a light vest in my car that I put on and wore it all day. So the tale of the tape?? Front nine: 45, not bad when you consider I had TWO triple bogeys. I did birdie the par 5 #9... the #1 handicap hole. Back nine: 37, started with bogeys on #10 and #11 and finished with a bogey on #18, but birdied #14. I missed makable birdie putts on #12, #13, #15. So finished with a 82, and I was thinking what it could have been without the blowup holes.

  13. Here’s a group shot that was in the text thread. As to who’s who. I could only identify about half as there are some new faces. So I’ll let one of the guys who is there do so. Maybe @GolfSpy BOS who I appreciate taking over official host duties. Thanks a lot Bryan for stepping in

    How'd you play?

    42/38 at Desert Springs this morning - with four 3 putts . I did make several good one putts to help offset those but was grousing at myself for letting another sub80 round escape. Three foursomes today playing 6/6/6, 2 net odd, 3 net even and extra points if everyone on the team makes a natural par or better. With the various handicaps, that can be fun trying to keep track off. We only managed getting the extra point on one hole of the four we had no kicks. These guys definitely come up with some interesting games. We all won our $10 back, so that was better than we thought. Really nice day with temps about 8 degrees cooler than average.

    How'd you play?

    More information to come later but set a PB today with a 99. Shot a 46 on the front and that included a 9 on one Par 5, and almost blew it on the final three holes. Opportunities to play much better but still managed to break 100!

  17. Good morning all, a little excited and a little anxious this morning, my 1st round with my new Tacomo 301MB's. Let me say up front these irons do feel really nice and I had a chance to dial in some carry numbers yesterday. As some of you know I compete at a high level provincially and nationally in Canada and I havent changed my irons in 8 years so it will be interesting today to say the least, sooooo... as Jackie Gleason would say (for the young golfers on the forum Jackie was an actor in the 40's-50's-60's and 70's) "and away we go" I will update after the round... have a great day everyone...

  18. Good morning fellow spies! Dew sweeper round scheduled at 6:30 this morning with one of my good friends, so up and at it getting some quick breakfast then heading up to the club to chip/putt and hit some range balls if the pro is there. First group out so can play at our own pace, and just enjoy the sights, sounds and smell of nature waking up. Hope everyone has a great day!

  19. Great practice round yesterday at Legacy Golf Links. A fun and pretty course in good shape without too much trouble that eased us into the area. Today’s 36 hole extravaganza is going to be a tougher test I expect.

  21. Actually, (long pause for dramatic intent) I pulled over on the on ramp to US-1 and emptied the can then got out and started wiping the water off windshield, side window, passenger seat, dashboard, door panel, center console, seat and an emergency vehicle went past lights and siren full throttle... And it occurred to me the can burst could have been hand of God. All dried off, headed south on US-1 and soon encountered an accident scene with fire engine and debris everywhere. A box truck has attempted to back out of a driveway and a vehicle much like mine was in the median with damage from the front grille to the rear wheel, can opened and destroyed, the occupants looking looking devastated but otherwise looked physically unharmed. Coincidence? You decide.

  22. I echo @fixyurdivot's comment about not splurging... should have done it. Hope you guys are having a wonderful time! Y'all should have a better round than I did today.

    How'd you play?

    Pretty happy with my round overall this morning while I am continuing on my quest to get myself consistently below 90. Today went fairly well with a 43/46 for an 89. Bogeys on holes 1-7 had me telling myself that keeping the doubles off the card is the important part. All it takes is one par with all those bogeys to get below 90. Ended up with pars on 8 & 9 to give myself a little cushion before the turn and then back to bogeys for 10-13. Got into a touch of trouble on 14 with a tee shot that went a bit right and slightly behind a tree. I thought that I was clear of the branches with my second shot but I caught one that sent my ball back to the ground. Poor strike on the third left me short of the green and I finished the hole with a chip and two putt for a double bogey. Bogeys on 15 & 16 followed by another double on 17. That meant that I had to par 18 to stay below 90. Decent drive followed by a pitching wedge from 125 yds left me with about 25' to the hole. I was able to make the two putt to save the 89 which made the whole round good in my eyes.

  24. Dang Rob, this is the second time you have put together an awesome meet-up and haven't been able to attend... what a bummer . Looking at the pictures, I'm kind of kicking myself for not splurging... especially since it does not look like the 5th PNW event is going to happen.

    How'd you play?

    Got out after working a little more than 1/2 day, and the weather was blue skies, sunshine, and about a 15-20 mph breeze. Had to start on the back 9, as they had leagues scheduled for the front, and I would be able to be in the clear of them by the time I made the turn. Was paired up with a couple other men, younger than myself, and SWMBO did come along to ride and see the sights. Highlight of my round was a birdie on my first hole, number 10. A 365-yard par 4 where I hit driver, PW to 15 feet right of the flag and drained the putt. Left a few other birdie putts on the edge or just by the hole without the ball taking the break I played for. Had another consistent 40 - 40 for an 80 total, with 13 of 18 fairways, but only 9 of 18 greens. Most shots that missed the green were too long, not by much but a lot of them were in-between club yardages for me, and I felt more comfortable taking the longer club and making what I thought would have been an easier swing. Still, this is my 5th full round in Michigan before the end of June, which puts me way ahead of the limited time I was able to play last year.

  39. Good morning Spies, Ready to hit start on cup number 2. Air quality got into the green yesterday but jumped back into the yellow this morning. My wife is competing in an Aqua Bike race this morning. Swimming and biking are her “golf”. Her equipment spends are around her bikes. Wishing all a great day!

  40. Good morning all! I am sitting at work this Saturday morning as I volunteered to come in to help finish today. Finish Saturdays are a lot more relaxed than production days, so it's not that bad. Not to mention we have a three day weekend coming up next weekend. I hope those of you that are on the Pinehurst trip have safe travels and a wonderful time. I hate that I couldn't make it this year, but sometimes life gets in the way. I hope y'all hit them well and enjoy each other's company. I hope everyone else has a great start to your weekend!

    Owen and I were joined by our friends Mark and Kevin for the Golf Fore Kids charity scramble put together by the local park district at River Heights today. There were opportunities to purchase mulligans and putting string and the chance to tee off from 90 yards on the longest par five. Because of all that, the winning score was a five way tie with 48 with three others scoring 49. We played really well and shot 51. Really good team effort where everyone pitched in almost equally. Good times all around!
