  1. I never remember to post here but since I tweaked my back yesterday, I’m sitting here watching everyone else post Played at Patty Jewitt in Co Springs yesterday. Patty has been closed due to people not social distancing. People not caring/following the rules resulted in the course being shut down for 2.5 weeks. <Insert insulting descriptions of these people here> They’ve just opened up again. The good thing about being closed for 2 weeks? The course was in really, really good shape. Since I’ve started playing again, 4-5 yrs ago, I’ve never seen it in this good of shape. Greens were as good as I’ve seen anywhere. Patty is a public course run by the city. It’s a heavily played course. If you like 6hr rounds, this is the place to be. To see it like this was a joy. Playing was hit & miss. Couldn’t find a driver swing, only hit 2 solid drives all day. This killed me on a couple of holes. Dogleg right par 5, pushed the drive into the trees. I was able to punch it through the trees and forward but didn’t make it back to the fairway. The rough was thick and my next shot from 153 was right but hole high. And in the thick stuff again. Butchered the pitch and then ... And then ... Ended up with an 8 on a par 5. Ugh. But the iron play was pretty good. The shot of the day was on a 163yd par 3, uphill with a breeze against us. We figured it would play around 180. Knocked it 3 foot short of the hole and I did make that putt. Yay for me! Only birdie of the day although there were some good looks. Fun day, great weather. Can’t wait to go do it again.
  2. It’s with fear and trebling that I’ll throw my hat into the ring. Loads of folks are consistent with posting and carrying on conversations, could I live up to that? But a little trash talking never hurt anyone Handicap and Location - around 15-ish and in Colorado Springs Social Media Accounts - this could be the kicker as I have none Expected rounds in an 8-week span - 8–12 Current OEMs in your bag - Callaway (woods/hybrids), Wilson (irons), Hogan (wedges) Build your dream bag for this challenge Yeah, here’s the fun part. I could tick two dream boxes at once, OL and Arccos! KING SPEEDZONE DRIVER KING SPEEDZONE Fairway wood(s) - baffles baby!

  4. Momma received a Sous Vide this morning and we put to use right away. Cooked a pair of 1/2” pork chops for us two - cooked for 2hrs. Good Stu, easy. Have another pair cooking now, will run for 4hrs. We’ll see if the extra time makes for a more tender chop [emoji848] Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

  6. I’ll never make it that far east to even see the course, much less get a chance to play it. Thanks for the walk thru. BTW, you mentioned ‘dogleg left’ five times. I’m getting dizzy! Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  7. I picked up a set of C300 Forged back in February and like them quite a lot. I have 8-10 rounds in with them so far. I’m very happy with that purchase, no buyers remorse here. The PXG’s though, I’ve never laid eyes on. Sorry. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

  9. Had a couple of blow up holes, killed the round. The little par 3 across water? Dunked three. Ouch. Doubled the first (#10). No warmup don’t ya know! Cost me. Still ended up in the mid-80’s but it could have been better. It was a beautiful day though and I enjoyed every moment of it [emoji106] Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

  12. Silly me! Thanks [emoji4] Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  13. Hot or not? All I can say is I walked out of the house yesterday without my putter [emoji849] (yeah, go ahead and razz me, I deserve it). One my playing partners had a Stroke Labs Seven in the back of his car, let me use it on the back 9. I was impressed. I missed three 3-4 footers, two for birdies [emoji22], but also drained several 6-8ft par putts. Felt great, the look sitting by the ball gave confidence. Guess what I’m shopping for today?
