  1. Best shot of the day came after the worst drive of the day. 3 wood so badly toed it left me with 200 yards to go instead of 130 if I woulda hit it decently. 5 iron to the green left me 40 feet away. Casually drained it for a completely undeserved birdie.
  2. So I cruised up to the 1st tee, and once I reached into my bag, I realized I only had 3 balls. This course is long, and danger lurks everywhere. I lost one on 6, but went the rest of the way with my second-to-last ball. It’s a win.
  3. Broke 100 the 2nd year 90 - 4th year 80 - 5th year 70 - 12th year (only did this twice)
  4. Scorecard playoff. I was even on the back, so I eeked out 2nd place
  5. Sucker hasn’t broken 80 all year. Drops a 71 today to beat me. Hats off to him, but it still stings.
  6. Well, my team has sh*t the bed. Good luck to those still left with a chance!
  7. Played Fossil Trace in Denver. Supposed to be the knees here, and I finally played it. A little pricey and very gimmicky, but overall good, and I will return. Shot of the day was a 481 par 4. My drive went left and pretty short, leaving me with 225. I had to bend it right to left around some trees with a deathly deep bunker right of the green. Pulled off a high drawing 4 iron around the trees and away from the bunker that left me 15 ft for bird. Missed the putt, of course
  8. Agree with stevens24. But of all those, Red Hawk prob is the best value. Scenic views, dramatic elevation changes, and cheaper fees
  9. Check out https://shop.skygolf.com/C-312-hitting-mats.aspx I got a mat from them in 2017. It still looks brand new and no pain at all, even on those steep ones. The feedback on fat ones is a much lower spin rate (usually less than half of normal). But you can definitely feel it when you hit it thin or drop kick it.
  10. I usually hit balls on my SkyTrak 30-60 minutes a day. Covid has really helped groove my swing....but I found the firmness setting the other day. So I set the conditions to “soft.” Now my wedges carry distance is farther than the total distance. #junk
  11. I hit everything so well today, it’s hard to pick. #14 - I hit a full SW from about 109 yards to 3 inches. (yes, I made the putt!) #18 - Standing on 18 tee, I am tied with two others for the lead. I knew I needed to birdie the 600 yard uphill, upwind par 5. A decent drive and second left me 180 out. I hit a decent approach shot, and that left me about 30 feet away. Of course, the two guys tied with me and about 40 others were loitering around 18 green, watching me come in, and everyone was expecting a playoff (myself included). But I drained my downhill, 30 foot double-breaker
  12. Points for honesty, but the way I see it, we don’t get free stuff here. We pay for it by writing an honest and thorough review, and by engaging with the community. Over the years, I’ve received literally thousands of dollars worth of goods. But I have tried to “earn” it each time.
  13. Tournament today (sitting in 3rd, still in the mix for tomorrow), 3rd hole, par 5 - I laid up to 120 yards. Put my wedge about 10 yards over the green on a steep slope. Gonna make for a tough downhill lie with not much green to work with. About 3-5 minutes later, as I walked up towards the green, the ball finally decided to roll down the hill and towards hole It stopped about 6 feet away, and I rolled in my 'routine' birdie!
  14. Antler Creek in Colorado at one time was ranked the 6th longest course in the world! I walked it a couple weeks ago with 25mph winds. My feet are still sore.
  15. I still have it, and maybe I'll try it a few ore times, but I just signed up for the GolfWeek Am Tour (Golf Channel Am Tour is GONE - story for another thread). So I will be practicing for those. But on my casual rounds, I might bring it out. For me, this was more an exercise in getting the clubmaking/repairing tools and tinkering during the cold months while I couldn't play.
