Hacker's Hideout

I didn't really think there was a big difference, but after a winter of hitting off the mats I felt like my iron play was weaker when I moved to grass. I'll be looking for an all grass range once the season starts in earnest.

 

With that in mind, we went to the dome less this year. And I think my game is in better shape as a result. Not as hard of a transition at the beginning of the season.

I found this for bag cash and valuables.

Seems like this would be wife proof too...

I've seen one that is even better than that and I thought I had it booked marked but I guess not. Pretty funny though!

So today I learned what an average to poor game looks like on a very tough course in the wind.

Here's the track: http://www.hiddenbrookegolf.com/layout9.asp?id=176&page=3434

Not a flat fairway in the bunch. Nasty greens with the sadistic pins in some. Shot lots of sixes today one all kinds of holes. Some blind tee shots, some holes that prior course knowledge would have really helped.

Wind here and there that could move the ball the width of the green. beatdown...

 

Here is the hacker shot of the day. Elevated tee par 4. after drive I have about 180 to the green, into the wind. Decide the try and hit a low running 5 iron. Set up and swing, topping the ball. It runs and runs and runs onto the green. Two putt for the only par of the round. The true hacker moment came when I looked at the club when I put it back in the bag and it was the 7 iron, not the 5. Both sit on the same side and I grabbed the wrong one.

Did laugh though now that the knock down 7 iron for 180 yards is now in the bag.

 

Stupid game...

I blame the "no cart girl" conditions too. Hoppy medicine would have done wonders for the mental game...

Ok....for my acceptance into this group, I played my first 9 holes yesterday. Shot a smooth 50 (index of 10.7), including the three ESC holes, lol.

 

I was rusty to say the least. At least the hosel-rocket issue from my first range session was no where in sight....instead I had a funky over the top move going strong.

 

 

Always another day's challenge, lol.

No offense...but I don't intend to be doing that long. Of all the mistakes to make, that is one I can't stand.

Me either, and yet it is the one that seems to linger the longest...

I just shot the second worst nine of my life, 69. I should have stayed home and punched myself in the face for an hour and a half. It would have been a lot cheaper. The only good thing about my round was going eight holes without losing a ball. One of the worst was losing four balls in a row on the ninth.
