A nine hole, full bag practice round this morning. Since there was a scheduled outing, I needed to be off the course for them by 8 AM. Finally had one of those days where I had almost everything working and didn't kill the round with a bad shot. I took what I worked on at the range on Thursday and had an excellent ball striking round, and a very good day off of the tee as well. (Arccos notes this as a +1, but it has one hole incorrectly labeled as a par 3 instead of 4, so this is even par and the best nine hole score I've ever recorded regardless.)

I was able to tee off pretty early on No. 10 because it runs west-to-east into the sunrise. It's a 6 iron off the tee for me, so I was able to follow the initial flight for quite a while before it dropped off into darkness. Great start to the round. One of my best shots of the day followed, from about 117 to pin I pulled the gap wedge and put a good swing on it but could only see it heading toward the green. Left me with this when I got up to the green, and I converted the birdie putt.

I've been trying to break rounds into three holes chunks, which as helped me focus on smaller stretches at a time. Played 10-12 +1 (my goal is +1), 13-15 even par (just missed birdie putts on all three, my goal is even par), and played 16, 17 and 18 one-under (goal is +1) with my first birdie of the year for me on No. 17.

I really had the SpeedZone Xtreme working for me down the home stretch:

161718.jpg.4a925f0314b349e78fd457dd1c31eb16.jpg

I hit 7/9 greens which is fantastic for me, and actually airmailed the green long on the par 3 No. 12 with a 9 iron from 145 that went about 148 and kicked off the back of the green.

Starting to round into form with the SpeedZones in the bag. Taking one more crack at the 14-club challenge tomorrow morning when I'll be able to get out for a full 18 holes.

Great round.

+1 there as well! 💪 Landing that 114 swing speed right on the sweet spot, eh? 😉

@Headhammer, unfortunately ... I’m bowing out of this week’s competition. 😢 Wasn’t able to make it out this past week ... did get to play today, but was mainly focusing on the LX5 watch to review for MGS and it was the first time we played the course. 

It’s okay, you can breath easy now. 😁

This experience has 100 percent validated the tour length for me. I'm not saying everyone should run out and chop down their drivers, but as someone with slightly longer than "standard" arms for my height, having the driver be just a bit shorter has done wonders for my game off the tee.

I also hit two awesome shots with the 54 degree wedge today and continue to really, really love the KING MIM Blacks. That includes this one from something like 105 out on No. 13 that tracked the pin so well that I thought I almost dunked it when it hit the green (Obviously, my depth perception needs a little work, but this was a great birdie chance that slid just right of the hole). Perfect hop and stop with a tiny bit of pull back.

Okay full disclosure... I sucked on the front nine of my local club tournament today! Then on the 11th hole par 5 THE EAGLE HAS LANDED happened and my round was salvaged by a sterling even par back nine that also contained a narrowly missed second eagle put on the last par 5 on the back. Even par back nine for a round saver thanks to a hot driver and putter.

Wow! What a round! Unfortunately Georgia weather has decided not to corporate with me this week. I played 9 holes on Thursday at 3 over before getting rained out as I rushed to finish hole 9.... after 2 inches of rain last night I was unable to play today.

I have a money match tomorrow, so I’m going to have to play straight up with that one. But I bet with that score you would’ve beaten me anyway.

Late round, hot and VEEEEERY slow. I shot a 76 at Rancho Sierra Golf Course in Palmdale with the 14 club challenge. Frustrating round because I couldn’t capitalize on some easy opportunities. And I messed up and had to half swing a driver on a 150 yard par 3 🙄. But the course rating is 63.8, slope of 105, and I’m a 6.5 index for a 0 handicap there.

Okay full disclosure... I sucked on the front nine of my local club tournament today! Then on the 11th hole par 5 THE EAGLE HAS LANDED happened and my round was salvaged by a sterling even par back nine that also contained a narrowly missed second eagle put on the last par 5 on the back. Even par back nine for a round saver thanks to a hot driver and putter.tenor.gif

When I left the course I was leader in the clubhouse with Net score of 69.

YAAAS! Awesome stuff!

My challenge round was a massive struggle.  Ended up 90 net 84. Par 71 rating 71/128.  Conditions were about as tough as I've played in. My method for was to stick a piece of painters tape on the club once it had been used, then remove it after it was used in the next rotation.

Wind was a solid 25mph when I started, and seemed to get stronger. Fairways were very soft with no run. To top things off the greens were very fast with a lot of difficult pin positions. It was virtually impossible to stop the ball downwind and downhill. Twice the ball stopped rolling after I had played my shot, cleaned my club, stuck tape on it, put it away and walked 30 metres. 

By the end I was drained. After spending 2 days rocking backwards and forwards in the corner I've finally got the energy back to post my score.

 

The challenge itself was tough enough, but the conditions combined with it made it brutal. There is no way I would have played if I hadn't challenged @daviddvm.  The weather has been even worse since, hopefully it improves and things dry out before next weeks challenge.

 

I hope no one else had to put up with conditions like I did.

You played in the Victorian weather!!!!!! I was counting my blessings that because of lockdown I didn't have to come up with an excuse for bailing on a weekend round. I'm not surprised you had trouble.

Did anyone else found that the hardest part of the challenge was to keep track of the clubs that were used, not hitting the shots?
