A few pics from our stop at Yellowstone National, including the kids taking in Olde Faithful.  (And a pic of my hot wife…just wanted everyone to know how much I out-kicked my coverage…). In Denver right now visiting family; we’ll be on the third base side 20 rows back for Braves-Rockies tonight.

no dice on Broken Sound. also weird was that the folks at Mar a Lago didn’t want to let me on as a single even though i told them DJT and i are boys. 🤷🏻‍♂️

i’ve got rounds booked for friday afternoon at Osprey Point, saturday morning at Westchester CC, and sunday morning at Winston Trails. 

there’s a muni not far from my house that i’m gonna try to squeeze in 9 at once or twice too.

Can’t understand DJT not having you over for 9 at least.

I remember Osprey Point.

Trying to figure out how to get a bit of a higher trajectory on my greenside bunker shots.

For folks that don't know, I used to be the worse bunker player of all time. 2 to 3 shots to get out of the bunker just about everytime. And when i got out, it was just barely out, not on the green, or bladed over the green. 

And then some miracle came along when I get my Edel T-grind wedge. Not sure if I somehow also fixed my bunker swing when I also bought that wedge, but I now have gotten out in 1 everytime (except for pot bunkers at Bandon, but thats a different story) with the Edel wedge and they are pretty good shots. 

My ball tends to come out fairly low and has some roll out. Trajectory is sufficiently high to get out of every bunker on my home course, none are super steep. However, going back to what I was mentioning at Bandon, I found I had some trouble with the steep pot bunkers and getting enough trajectory. So trying to figure out how to hit my bunker shots a little higher.

@chisag and anyone else - tips?

Lovett Tour Lob 63º sand wedge.

Got one.  Love it.

Absolutely useless from a tight fairway lie,

so you can't have a prejudice against one trick ponies!!!

It isn't that you have to open the face a lot,  I believe that it comes down to holding the face and not shutting it down/rotating it like you do on normal shots and thumping the sand under the ball.  It all comes down to technique.

I have the Lovett 56* sand wedge and it worked for me for a while, got the Worx 59* Sand Wedge and that was better but the real trick is what I got from Rick Shiels in one of his older videos with the trick of taking the sand out from under the ball.

Spent the last two days in Seattle; funeral for my brother-in-law's wife.  Lots of people I don't know or may have met once somewhere.  My wife has a big family and many are at that age now.

BTW, I really don't like Seattle traffic!!!  🤬
