Finally was able to get another round in. Was using Prov1x on the front in order to properly review the Zipcore. On the back though I busted out the trusty ol Titelist Velocity. Almost got myself back in to the long drive competition on my very first hole. Screenshot_20200825-203758_myRoundPro.jpeg
Unfortunately had some kicks left and ended up in the rough. Played a very solid round and was a few shots away from a personal record round. Who says that the Velocity isnt a proper gamer haha. Played at Clustered Spires, shot a 38, played from the Black tees, current handicap is 8.8. 20200826_093036.jpeg

Playing tomorrow morning, I am hoping for a good 18, trying to get closer to the hole on the par 3s. got 4 chances tomorrow

Also is it gaming the system if I go play on a executive course over the weekend, 14 par 3s, to try to get even closer to the hole?

Played another 18 this morning. 99 total holes for this challenge.

Use the velocity

Shot an 81, 40 on the front 41 on the back nine

Played at Taylor Meadows, from the whites 66.1/117

I keep flirting with breaking 80.

I hit the driver off the deck a couple of times, once on the 7th hole, and again on the 12th hole.

Bummer! It’s the worst when you smoke a drive  and it trickles into the rough during a long drive competition. Still a great drive, and a really good hole!

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.

Overall, I got the Chaos to backup on several holes on the back nine....

Foz, what tees did you play?  I need to add the slope and rating into the spreadsheet for your score.

My "irons only" entry with my #CobraConnect stuff. 2 hybrid and 4-PW only, along with the putter.

Ball: Nitro Ultimate Distance
Score: 42
Course: Western Greens GC
Course Rating/Slope: 35.2/112
Handicap: 9.8

This was fun! The Nitro had completely lost all of it's lettering by about the third hole... 🤣

You are a legend for doing this during the CCC.  Double checking on the course rating, is 35.2 for one side of the course?  Was that a typo?

The commissioner of this is a slug head.  But the scoreboard has been updated and things have heated up!   I don't know how some of you guys are still hitting these rocks--but you are awesome.  @jddaigneault are you going to let that 327 bomb slide right by?    @RoverRick is holding strong onto the lead!

I thought drives needed to be in the fairway? I’ll have to see if I can sneak away from a wedding weekend to put in a round...🤞🏻I don’t get caught!

... If you guys have been watching the BMW Championship you know the conditions we are playing in the Chicago area. I can't even remember the last time we had rain and playing in 20 mph winds yesterday on hard fast fairways/greens I just can't imagine playing a Hard Rock and holding greens let alone playing a hole downwind without a urethane ball. It was tough enough with TP5's and a few times straight downwind I landed one on the front and still rolled to the back fringe. So again I have to applaud you brave (stupid?) players embracing this challenge in August. 🤗

That's the rating for the back nine, which I played.

Overall course rating is 69.4/114.

🤣 at being a "legend." It was a lot of fun!
