How'd you play?


Recommended Posts

The mid atlantic weather was very nice for late December with 55* and sunny skies.  A good bit of wind off the river made club selection a challenge at times.  A lot of other people had the same idea which slowed us up after 9 but we jumped around a couple holes and got in 15 before needing to head home.  I had an early stinking triple on a par 3 with a chunked tee ball into a penalty and chunked chip shot and 3 bogeys with the rest pars.  I didn't make a putt all day but felt like I was hitting them pretty well.  I like the feel of the set up adjustments I've been practicing and had good distance and line control with the putts.   

A recent thread got me thinking and I tracked approach shot distances and proximity to the hole today and on the 10 holes with a regular approach distance ranging from 80 to 180 yards I averaged 115 yards and 15'.  Wedge shots were getting up in the wind too much today and I wasn't happy with the inconsistent distance from the hole on those shots averaging 15' rather than the 10' I try for.  7,8 & 9 irons I averaged 15' also which is a little better than what I try for.

Lots of great golf around Indianapolis.  I've been lucky enough to play Purgatory (it rained on us too...), The Fort ( a LONG time ago) and Brickyard Crossing.  I have some work related peeps that are members at Country Club of Indianapolis, that's next on my list.  Hopefully in 2022!

Well, another beautiful December day for golf. Unfortunately, my right shoulder is simply deteriorating.  I am now at constant pain.  I shot a 50/47:97 today……really putting up big numbers.  I hate to say this, but I am now looking forward to surgery and 8 weeks of no golf.  I have two weeks left, or 5 rounds to go.

Don't play hurt Foz.  I know you really want to get out there; but speaking from experience with my TKR, when you play hurt you will introduce compensations in your swing that you will be trying to undo when you are healthy again.  Don't do it.

I would spend the last two weeks working on short game shots and putting, as long as it doesn't hurt to do so.

I wasn't aware there was such a thing as "rash of pars".  I thought pars were good; rash of bogeys I can understand.  If you were playing with the Bacon Boyz, I guess you could confuse the term with "rasher of bacon".  😂

Definitely confusing bacon!!
