I know which one I'll be playing to start the round off on Sunday. I don't think I've ever hit a Velocity, but I'm sure I'll be in for a treat. Or pain, probably pain.

It's pink, so it can't be too hard, right? 

Thanks again to @chisag for offering to send these to me, it made my day. The information on this site makes it wonderful to be part of, but it's the people that truly make it great. 

That would have been my first choice as well. Only think better then a pink titleist is a pink pinnacle

I can't wear pink at all with my complexion, but there's no shame in my game about "ROCK"ing a pink ball. Hopefully it'll be easy to track in the air and not rolling across the ground from topping it.

If anyone is in need of a supply for the HRC, I literally have a thousand or so I’d be happy to send you. You cover shipping and I’ll send as many as I can fit in a “if it fits it ships” USPS box.

Sometimes if you ask the universe answers back! 20200807_141407.jpeg
Par 3 closest to the pin entry! Came out to 9 feet (heel-toe steps)! If only I wasnt using the spinless Titleist Velocity maybe could have had my first 1! Ended up being our last hole of the day also because after hitting our drives on the next hole BOOM ! Nasty slow moving T-storm rolled through. Is there a record for the shortest HR round?

HRC today, using a Top Flite Hammer and Wilson Chaos. Lost the Hammer on #4 then lost a green Chaos on #5, switched to an Orange Chaos on #5 and finished with it. I shot 44/44:88 with a penalty on #4 & 5.

After working yesterday, I decided I needed a trip to the golf course to unwind and relax after waking up at 3:30 a.m. for six days straight and building cars. My wife offered to come along again and be caddy and mental game coach. 20200809_162404-01.jpeg.7a0c3c9cf4340648af34cbc0f415720b.jpeg

I'm glad she did, I had a complete and utter meltdown after the first three holes left me sitting at +8 for the round. I did start off the round playing the pink Velocity, which met it's demise getting buried in thick weeds due to a snap hooked topped drive on the third hole. 20200809_150736-01.jpeg.bb186444e813bca587514bb43e7ef36c.jpeg

 I'll miss you buddy, I hardly knew you. 

After taking a 9 on that par 5, things settled down with me playing the last 6 holes +6 for a round of 50. I finally settled the mind down and started playing golf and not golf swing. My shot of the day came on the par 4 4th hole. I topped driver, leaving  myself 180 yards to the pin, pulled the 5 wood and absolutely nutted one over some bushes to within 7 feet. Screenshot_20200809-191341-02.jpeg.df459b37a253ec91285e5bf1cb1293f2.jpeg20200809_155403-01.jpeg.70dab7d2c3abaa618b08b25febc4df4d.jpeg

I missed the birdie putt, but still managed to make par. THAT was the shot where I found my mojo (not Nike) and propelled me to a better round. I stared focusing on the shot I wanted to hit and just hit it. 

It was a wonderful day, I'm thankful my wife joined me and we had a lot of fun. Nothing to report as far as the competition goes, but it was a great time.

Finally had a chance for another 9, decent weather, my ammo today was a Pinnacle Gold. Really makes me appreciate my Bridgestone. 

Anyhow,  shot a 40, longest drive was only 223. Nice day though.

I had a combo contest kind of round today, playing both the Hard Rock Challenge and the woods/wedges competition over in the Cobra Connect Challenge thread. Overall I shot a 97, but only played the front 9 with a Titleist Velocity where I shot a 46. My handicap has taken a battering lately going up to 21.6.Screenshot_20200813-120125-01.jpeg.d43357ee8915dc65620692b71fc7bb11.jpeg

I played Chatata Valley in Cleveland TN hitting from the white tees. 

Screenshot_20200813-122958_Firefox-01.jpeg.ac64e4e936c524fa36b65eab5e4f604c.jpeg

I played part of the front nine with a single that joined up with me on the fifth hole and he did a good job keeping me grounded and focused after the last few rounds have damaged my mental game. Today I just focused on a target in front of the ball and trusted it completely. 

It was a beautiful day on the course and the first time in a while I've played early. The lack of heat was a pleasant surprise after burning up the last few times I've played. 

20200813_100613-01.jpeg.e480ff77596b810e343fc8a70f56c6bd.jpeg

I did have company most of the day in the form of sweat bees that constantly invaded my cart every time I got out of it.20200813_103316-01.jpeg.fe4a6583fc8a6ae3248bed68e5e04713.jpeg

I'm just thankful they weren't wasps.

Launches great and carries far! Plus, they could market brand specific ice gloves to help with the swelling in your hands, sounds like a win/win to me.
