Man, you really bomb your driver!!!  Nice shots!  I'm trying to get mine up there, but I typically don't get over three 300+ yd drives in one round.

This is a once was old is new again thing.  In 2016/17 I was a bomber.  Then I had shoulder issues, was hitting it 250 max for a few years.  Last year I was not anywhere near 300.  This year… it seems I got my technique back.

Headed home back to Michigan at the end of the month, going to stop by my old stomping grounds and get fitted for a driver, and probably have them take a look at the lofts and lies.

Shot of the day was on the first Par 5.  Hit a clean drive 310 yards dead down the center.

I was so thrilled.  Unfortunately it didn't last long as I put my next shot over the green, chipped on, 2 putted......ARGHHH!!!!

From 100 - 0 in a matter of minutes.  Think I got into my own head and got ahead of myself thinking about an Eagle putt.

took a page out of @Lacassem’s book today and primarily used my 52* wedge for all my work around the greens. 

but i was left with this tough chip, short sided and over a bunker and knew it was a job for the lob wedge

i got low, leaned almost all my weight into my front foot, turned the face wide open and took a big swing. 

ball popped straight up, sailed over the bunker, landed on the fringe and rolled to 5’

Yesterday, it would have been the 50ish yard GW to <1' to seal a birdie on a long (550ish yard) par 5.

Today?  I cut the corner perfectly on a short par 4.  Almost got it to 300y.  Yeah, I squandered it and came out with a bogey.Aqua17.PNG.e37d33076bdae8a9fd5deef38628fb2e.PNG

Played yesterday afternoon and did OK.  Shot of the round was after hitting my driver into the bunker on a par 5, I decided to gamble and go for it.  Played a 4 Hybrid from the bunker and it worked out.  Hit it solid, 200yds right in front of the green.

Wish my chip was better as I ended leaving a longer first putt than wanted, so two putted.  But happy with par since I was in the bunker early on.

Not sure what I'd consider my shot of the day, I actually hit the ball solid today (front 9 at least). If I have to pick, I think I'll go with my tee shot on the Par 3 4th at the Prairie Lakes Blue Course. It's a forced carry over water with water all along the left and brush behind the green. The pin was tucked left today which meant going directly at it wasn't an option. I decided to play it safe for the middle of the green - if I draw towards the pin, great; if I fade it away from the pin then I still have a chance for par. Wound up hitting the draw (I'd say it was intentional, but anyone who's played with me lately would know better) and sticking it about 20' right and just above the pin. Nailed the putt for birdie!

I guess that's actually two shots, but I did well to narrow it down to that. You guys be the judge! 😂

There really weren't any miraculous shots or darts or anything out of the ordinary today.  The shot that did it for me was my tee ball on 3, it kicked off the rust and led to a nice 3.  It wasn't the intelligent choice but after the way I started I figured why not.

3 is a narrow landing area on a 360 yard hole.  Helper wind and I hit a 3 wood that traced the right edge of the fairway and landed right in the center of the fairway before the green.  Had 52 yards in and hit a decent approach to 10' and made the birdie.  All in all, a great hole but that tee shot was what did it for me.

This was from a round a few days ago but was probably the best golf shot I've ever hit. Not the best struck or ended closest to the pin, but best golf shot. Par 5 10th started with hybrid off the tee to the right. Second shot was blind and I crushed a hybrid that ended up going through the fairway. Came over the hill and saw my ball in the left rough, about 125 yards out sitting on a 45* incline right in the middle of the hill (uphill, not above or below feet) with 90% of the green blocked out by trees. Another blind shot. Typically a soft PW distance for me but with the hill/rough, wasn't sure what to do. Ended up pulling 6-iron and taking a little half swing that I hit clean, drew around the tress and would up about 20' from the hole for a chance at birdie (that I missed, but that's why it's not called shotS of the day). Never hit a shot with that much touch before. Felt like an actual golfer.

166 yard to the pin out of a fairway bunker to 15 feet, caught it clean with my 7 iron and boy did it sound pure coming out of the bunker. 2 putted for par. I normally stray away from these and play it safe but I couldn't resist the temptation. have to keep the ball left of a large overhanding branch on the green, go over a green side bunker, and if you shank it your in the woods or a river 50 yards in front of you

Favorite shot of the round was this 50 yard pitch with my 56* wedge off a downhill lie.

It was one of those shots that flex exactly as I had imagined in my mind, bounced and released breaking towards the hole.  Helped me save par on this hole!

Either my drive on a short par 4 to pin high left (made par) or the 3rd shot to save par on another par 4.  Hit it off a tight lie to about 4' on a green that was running fast away.

two stood out today, and i can’t decide. 

first was my second shot on a long par 5.  had 303 in and a good lie, so why not go for it? pulled 3w and hit a high draw that landed on the front of the green and rolled on to the back left collar 

second was a par 3 playing about 170 uphill, i put my 9i to 3 feet

Started playing some nice shots now! Favourite from Friday's round was a 285y Titleist 816 21° hybrid on one of my 'bogey holes'. Never play this hole well as I tend to fade my hybrid but getting much better with it and managed to draw slightly (bit of wind with me) around the corner 🙂 

The guys I was playing with couldn't believe it went so far!
