Screenshot_20230913_181801_Indiana_Golf1.jpg.34c693ff6edaf07b0eecfbd15e8e4839.jpgYes, I've shot a 78 before - in a Member/Guest with my dad at Palmira (his club in Bonita Springs, Florida) a couple of year ago. Needless to say, we ran away with the hardware....and they called my club to verify my rounds/handicap 😂

Beautiful late summer day in Indiana. Played hooky from work (I'm salary, so no big deal) with the guys in the morning choose. I do use a ShotScope watch, so I decided to just play to the 'middle of the green' yardage instead of shooting pins & see how the round went. I did take a tune-up lesson early in the year to knock the annual rust off (we usually have a 4-month hiatus for winter here in Indiana).

Mind you - I just celebrated 18 months of sobriety. Golf seems easier when I'm not drinking a fifth of rum the night before. Hell, life seems easier.....😀20230911_1120371.jpg.2f6f8157c0015bda9139c0681decb962.jpg20230913_1716441.jpg.72662265637e3d861cdc294e5536fdf2.jpgScreenshot_20230913_170707_Shot_Scope1.jpg.57faf53f09d1f2133916fa98ec8709a9.jpgScreenshot_20230913_170726_Shot_Scope1.jpg.1ce500b990295dc97fb2cf359348bc04.jpgScreenshot_20230913_170734_Shot_Scope1.jpg.8418ce78684c93657ca627851f1713e9.jpgScreenshot_20230913_170743_Shot_Scope1.jpg.4c6f2dc4f58113494a937b420ca9f47f.jpgScreenshot_20230913_171013_Shot_Scope1.jpg.338ca59ba7596f04e3f46f65538f30e6.jpg

I kind of want a do over here as I left 3 strokes out there that should have been birdies 
I guess I cannot gripe to much when I shoot my course HDCP at 6 strokes

Was sitting at 2 under with 3 holes to play. And I'm kicking myself hard, went bogey, bogey, dbl to finish. Went from 3rd place to tied for 10th. Not bad for a freshman on varsity, playing against 5 other schools, but I let one slip today! Oh well, tourney next week at a course I love!

VCT Match Play  

Was sitting at 2 under with 3 holes to play. And I'm kicking myself hard, went bogey, bogey, dbl to finish. Went from 3rd place to tied for 10th. Not bad for a freshman on varsity, playing against 5 other schools, but I let one slip today! Oh well, tourney next week at a course I love!

You are my hero TB.  Freshman, Shooting 73, Bombing it 290.  You will do awesome at the tourney next week.  Keep us posted!!

After a disheartening Bills loss last night, I could hardly get to bed.  That was compounded by having to get up at 5:20 am to administer the men's league this morning.  I had extremely low expectations to say the least.  I was proven wrong!

I had my best round today since mid-January!

No doubles on the card.  I "only" hit 71% of the fairways, but hit three greens in regulation (up by 50%).  I had six up and downs and only 26 putts (including ten one-putt greens).  My chipping and approach shots were on today!  On 18 I hit an OK drive, a decent 5 wood and was 175 yards out on the closing par 5.  The hole is guarded by water on the right and jetting out partially in front of the green.   I usually lay up, but today I pulled the five wood out again and put it on the green 13 feet from the pin!  I proceeded to lip out the birdie, but "settled" for a par and a 79. 

I was on the DL for week one of the match play tournament.  Hopefully this score will keep me on the team for another week.

This round was a really good round for me and I still left quite a few shots out there. 3 or 4 birdie putts that I would have had had I hit it hard, right line but not enough on the putt.  I made the best contact I have made in years and putting was well but not great.  I haven't shot under 80 in 20 years though I was playing the middle tees since the rest of the group was playing them so that did help.  I also did this with a double bogey on #9. Back tees would have been different but hopefully not a lot different.

Blue tees and course handicap was a 1. Solid round today. Shot 2 under with the only blemish being a bogey on a par 5 on the back. That was a cardinal sin! However, had a bounce back birdie on 18. Hit 15 greens and had 31 putts. Many lip outs. The cups were not in good shape and look like they weren’t moved in a couple days. However, hopefully this holds up in our match play. It was fun playing a match live here while playing the virtual match. My playing competitor signed the card. Looks like rain the rest of the week so, glad to get it in. image.jpeg.8724424470ed3c1ffa8fb7ecb6a27141.jpegimage.jpeg.49b1ab0465c23c0830dc35000c717068.jpeg
