First off, happy birthday to your wife and if she's a bigger golf nut than you, you got a good one.

That left handed 7 iron shot is hard to pull off and that's impressive! I'm glad the two of you were able to get out and enjoy the day together. 

She is a nut - she'll will go out in temps that I would only ski in....but she drinks fireball and I don't!

On the LH swing, I was completely ready for a whiff and as surprised as anybody that the ball went the right direction!  I tried a couple practice swings and settled on gripping it cross handed.

Fireball is the approved energy source from the “Bacon Boyz”.

After the big wind yesterday, my wife and I had plans to play this morning.  At 9am it was still quite windy (15mph) for a 42º temperature, so we called and cancelled.  Around 1pm it had warmed up to a balmy 47º and the wind was down to 10-12mph and the sun came out... briefly.  So we headed to the course.  It's colder down by the river, but we decided to play anyway.  We opted for our push carts since it's easier to stay warm walking.  No warmup since we were burning daylight.  

I missed the 1st fairway (not unusual) but managed a wedge shot from the rough to the back of the green with a back pin.  Hard L2R breaking putt uphill and into the wind... 3-putt.  Arrrgh!  Fairway and tap-in par on #2.  Down the middle on #3 and an 8i into the green with a "Red" flag pin; nice shot straight at the pin... pin was in the middle of the green!!!  Couldn't get any more middle; came up short and no up and down!  Arrrgh!  I hit every fairway on the remaining holes and parred holes 4-9.  So, a +2 round of 39. My wife shot a very nice 42 after a birdie-par start.  We played in one hour and 40 minutes, managing to keep the foursome in 2 carts in sight and losing the 2-some in a cart behind us.

Bad weather moving in this week; rain tonight and all day tomorrow, the temps drop into the 20's at night with snow flurries likely.  Might not be able to play for awhile.

Christmas Goose comp on Saturday and shot my best ever score of 83 for 39 points playing with 15 shots 😃

Had 6 pars & 12 bogeys, really pleased to keep any DB's off the card and getting up & down was really good. Had 3 or 4 putts pull up just short and just missed to birdy putts that I should have really made. 

Driving was a bit off but I didn't try anything daft if I was out of position.

Really starting to see the benefit of the slightly more forgiving MP54 compared to the MP32's and taken another 0.9 off the handicap..

I won the comp by a point too 🏆

I have indeed. Really pleased with the performance, lines up great, rolls really well. I'm just lacking a little confidence to give the ball enough poke...will bode well for the summer when the greens speed up again.

Sounds like it's time for that call to MGS staff and offer to send D-Star Putters to 4 testers 👍.

Monday & Tuesday 2 completely different Exec 9’s. 
Monday struggled with everything except pitch/chip game.  Unfortunately that was not enough to save a decent score, +6😱
Tuesday started 3 bogies then woke up and ball found the middle of club face.  2 Birds helped the cause for a +3.

Still in the 50s in Ohio and got out for 9 holes yesterday. I had a birdie, and overall played well, hit 6 greens. The birdie was a terrible drive I got away with having a clear shot to the green and hit my gap wedge to 8 inches. I have next week off, so maybe one more round before Christmas if the weather holds.

Was able to figure out a reason to travel to South Carolina for work and had enough time to get to play golf one of the days.  Played at True Blue for the first time and really enjoyed the course.  I was a single, but ended up playing with the foursome in front of me who were playing quickly and playing the same tees as me.  Had a great round minus about 4 bad shots over the whole day.   Hole of the day was the par 5 9th that I eagled.  Hit a great 2 hybrid from 237 into wind and had 8 feet and was able to make the putt.

Blue Tees - 6812 yardage (not much roll out on drives so played pretty long)

That's a great round on that course for sure. From the blues it was a 72.6 rating and a 139 slope. So many waste areas I lost count.

Definitely on my list the next time my in-laws rent a place in Pawleys.  You played slightly down the road at Caledonia yet?  Another Strantz gem.

Thank you, it was a great day for sure - Besides one drive that put me behind a tree, I was hitting better than I ever have.  Also helped to join the group of members ahead of me for some insight to each hole.  Really fun round.

Not just yet, I had actually planned to play there instead, but they had a tournament going on.  Apparently it worked out for the best as the members I was playing with said they have recently lost 6 of the greens and it's not up to par with True Blue at the moment.

Also with my game off the tee, the tighter courses are usually tough for me.  Length usually is no issue, but keeping them straight off the tee can be a challenge at times.  Luckily I had it clicking the other day.  

True Blue will certainly be on my list if I'm back in the area.
