Very pedestrian round today.  I wish I had the cold, snow or another good reason I didn't play up to my best today.

If you looked at the round stats, you'd think it was a pretty solid round (with the exception of GIR, but that's about half of what I usually have).  I was short of every tee and just didn't feel like I hit the ball well today.

Better luck next week!

Great day today!!!! New irons, beautiful weather, new putting stroke and putter were great, and I figured out my driver swing on the back 9. Can’t complain. It should’ve been a 73… Choked the last three holes.

So compared to the ZX5/7's, anything stand out with the i230's?  From the outside, they look to be a comparison with the T200 and Stealth irons (lots of tech under the hood of that back cap).  How is the feel to you going from forged to cast?

Definitely seemed to be more forgiving, and there wasn’t a big “feel” difference coming from the Z. It’s hard to describe the feeling because they weren’t like previous Pings I played, almost had a “heavier” feel off the face. I had a number of shots that still hit the green that wouldn’t have with the Z combo, and distance forgiveness seemed to be better as well. It was only one round, but forgiveness was quite noticeable.

Foggy at the start of a 10:30 shotgun and 36º.  My wife and I played with another couple.  Shot 41/35 for 76 with 2 natural birdies back-to-back on #13 and #14 and 3 net birdies on the par 5 #9, par 4 #10 after sticking a short pitch shot to tap-in range, and the par 3 #15 with a sand save.

You are like the post office Kenny.  Through rain, and sleet and snow!!  Great playing in adverse conditions.

I was only able to get out 1 more time this week - Thursday of all days. Nothing spectacular. It was cold. . . Had some great drives but everthing else was left. I usually have a little fade but Thrusday I was craving pizza or pie or something becuase all I had were slices.

Long drive was decent and lucky that I didn't make it to the water. Going down that hill to the pond is very easy to do.

WEEK 9 FINAL LEADERBOARD

MYGOLFSPY FORUM MEMBER CHAMPIONSHIP TOUR

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Looks like many of us were able to find our way to the course during the holiday week, as we had 19 scores posted for Week 9.  A lot freezing temps and rain outs across the member base, but as the true golfers we are... we found ways to put club to ball and work our way around the course.

WEEK 9 WINNERS:

Low Net Score:

Once again - The net scores posted continue to be strong and below par.  I can say for my round - the planets certainly aligned... My Handicap will be taking another drop as a result!!  With a round of 69 - 3 under par gross - less my 3 handicap... @Golfspy_TCB carded a Net 6 Under (-6) score of 66.

@MGoBlue100 and @fozcycle tied for 2nd place with Net 5 under par (-5) rounds - and in a tie for 4th @snicerz and @Mr. Mushball posted scores of net 4 under (-4).  

All Great Scores!!  

 

Most Birdies or Better:

A Three Way Tie for 1st Place in the Net Birdies or Better category!!  @MGoBlue100, @Mr. Mushball, and @JFish350 all posted Eight (8) net birdies or better.  Closely behind in a tie for 4th - @fozcycle and @Golfspy_TCB had 7 net birdies or better.  

 

Longest Drive:

The Big Drivers showed up again this week... and @JFish350 took advantage of some travel to southern AZ to unleash his Driver with a 343 yard drive at Apache Creek.  6 drives posted over 300 yards... incredible!!

Congratulations to all the winners and Thank You all for continuing to post your rounds and compete in the MGS Forum VWCT!!

Be sure to check out the updated MGS Forum Cup Points thread to see how this week's scores impact the year long points race!

 

WEEK 10 is underway

Too much turkey ball, TCB is sleepy. 

I'm not likely to play this week, winter storm rolling into the PNW.  Seattle already has snow, we may or may not get any over the weekend.  It will be a last minute call for me.

If we do play, it will likely be at Wildwood or Heron Lakes.  Glendoveer is closed for a Nike cross country tournament that's taking over both sides.  Range has been closed since last weekend.
