How'd you play?

Finally able to get back out to play after weeks of packing and moving and then unpacking.  Played our new home course, Diamante Country Club in Hot Springs Village, AR.  Did not handle my wedges worth a flip and putting on unfamiliar greens left much to be desired, but did walk away with an 85.  Not within my expectations for my handicap but, to be fair, I haven't played much in the last 2 months and my back has been barking as a result of the moving.  But, I'm playing again, have met up with some good folks, and have signed up to join 3 groups so far (Wed, Fri, Sat.  During the off season, the course does 11 am shotgun starts and the men (as well as the ladies) have groups set up where you sign up if you want to play or not rather than forming your own foursome (which you can also do if you chose to do so).

It's a really nice course, with undulating terrain.  The Bermuda fairways are dormant currently, but the greens are fast and true.   The signature "Los Tres Diablos" holes (13,14, &15) is quite a test of 3 par 4 holes that require a good drive and an accurate second shot with a mid iron to the greens.  #18 is a great finishing par 5 hole and I have a great view of the tee boxes and fairway from our deck.  Life is good!

Glad to hear the move and restart went well for you Carl.  Your still on the hook however for the 2022 PNW Meet-up - so you might as well start working on that kitchen pass now. 😁

... I have been fighting a nasty case of tendonitis in my right elbow and have not played for 10 days.

Kind of odd for this to flare up all of a sudden... have you been doing some other activity that might be responsible?  My forearm compression brace/wrap worked wonders even prior to my getting the composite iron shafts.  I'm not sure I need it anymore (probably just placebo at this point), but it feels strange playing without it and I don't want to go through that annoying pain.

I’m living with the elbow pain and doing the exercises.  The lack of feeling in 2 fingers is annoying but not painful. 
Orthopedic Doc said to eliminate all of this is surgery, nope not right now.  New knee first on list.

... Anything is possible. One of the problems with aging is a minor injury you pay little attention to can turn into something worse. Playing through pain was the way all athletes born in the 50/60's were raised and that might have been somewhat OK in my 20's but many of us know by experience it doesn't work once you get past 50. So it is possible I aggravated it in some way and then daily golf made it worse. It was hurting but manageable and then it seemed like one round too many increased the pain exponentially and I walked off after 11 holes, then took the 10 day break.

I joined the Ladies group when they made the turn and walked the back nine with my wife's group which only had 3 players.  It's the easier nine holes to walk, and I was tired and sore... mostly from being old!

I am still playing my MacGregor VIP 1025M irons and hitting them well.  Shot 38 (+3) on a chilly 41º day.  I had left my 7i in my hitting bay, and I only needed to use it twice... both on par 3's!!!  Took a little off my 6i once and hit an 8i stinger on the other; GIR and par on both.

41/42 at Mesa Del Sol yesterday.  This should have absolutely been another sub 80 round but I managed to blow it.  Putting for birdie on #9 from ~7 feet and walked away with a bogie 🙄.  I had two other great chances for birdie on the front and neither dropped.  Then, on #12, 4 putted 😬.  Granted, it was a really long putt just off the opposite side of the green, across the two tiers, and a sloped pin placement - but I was hacked at myself for missing so bad and opted to step in quickly and finish rather than mark and let the fire burn down 🤣.

But, on the plus side, I won 3/4 KP's and 13/18 wolf's... netting $3.30!

Exec 9 this morning, 55*, little foggy & no wind.  Shot a 4 over, no birds.  
It was like walking wounded with all of my 4some having some ailment or at least waiting on scheduled replacements.

I played yesterday at one of my locals.  I played... meh....  I just could not get my head in the game.  I was distracted with work and other assorted things going on.  I just hate when that happens.  I find it much like when you wake at 2 or 3 in the morning and cannot turn your mind off to go back to sleep.

I always had that problem in the company golf league. Run out the door from work, throw on some shorts and race to the first tee. No warm up and your mind is still solving work problems. Then to top it off your playing with people from work and conversations always somehow get back to work. It usually didn't make for a good round of golf.

Played in my first 2 Day Major for the US AM Tour down in the La Canetera Course, Palmer ( soon to be taken down to build house, shame its such a great course) and the Resort Course, in San Antonio, TX.
First day I was able to play to a solid 82 considering that I shank a 9 iron into the woods on the par 3 to take a 7, my only other in the score card and a improvable chip in on 18th. 
Second day with a 4 stroke lead was cruising along to start the round, when the weather change to 30-40mphs winds and cold winds. Then it was survival for everyone to make it to the club house in one piece. 

Game was ok, not spectacular but decent and didn't crumble under pressure of competition. 

Came out a victorious at the end , first day lead was huge and help to preserve the lead while I was leaking a little oil coming into the finish line.
