How'd you play?

Recommended Posts

From Friday.  Weird day.  Weirder than 43/44 an 87 would indicate.  I had a lesson the day before and try as I might I couldn't banish technical thoughts from my head which made for a very mixed striking day.  I just kind of rolled with it and had a very feast and famine type of day.  At times I was locked in, others I was floundering around in the dark.  My old downswing and older chipping technique were fighting against the stuff I learned yesterday.  I hit some truly great shots and some head scratchers that had me visiting parts of the course I'd never had to recover from before.  😑.  Including a beautiful 8 iron on a par three that I pulled that hit behind a greenside bunker, struck something solid and had me pitching back into the green from 70 yards away just off the green of another hole... and I came within 1/2" of getting up and down! 

Off the Tee:  Either in the center of the fairway 250-270 out or 150 yards left, right, up, down, etc.

Woods/Hybrid:  Okayish, struck well but not at all on line.  I hit one to pin high on 17 from 235 that was 30 yards left of the green next to a drainage swale.  

Irons: See the driver.  Either throwing darts or an unpredictable mix of everywhere.

Wedges:  Same as the rest.  Either the yips or putting me in position to get up and down.

Putter:  4-3 putts but also 5-1 putts -- most of them beyond 10 feet.  🤷‍♂️   I was just a little off from very long range.  On the 3 putts I was pretty far out from the pin (beyond 35 feet) and left myself 5-6 feet out.   Brushed those just to the side of the cup and tapped in for the 3rd one.

All things considered I'm pretty happy with an 87, especially with 4 doubles.  Headed to the range tomorrow to work on the drills that will start to solidify some of these swing adjustments.

It took me a good 3 months for my "new" swing to ingrain itself. You'll likely see weird stuff happen for a while.

Saturday was my last round before shoulder surgery.  I shot a 49/42:91 and had several tries at birdie.  I did par the last hole, #18 which is one of the hard3st holes on the course(#3 handicap).

Looking ahead, I am positive that my shoulder will be so much better and I can rehab with a strong Spring ahead of me. 

Good luck with the surgery.  Did my shoulder while ago and it’s been great, you’ll be back better than ever.

As far as the cart and the problem goes, my major issue was how my bag is set up.

 

Try this.  I found this layout for a 14 divider bag very helpful all around for (Push cart, cart, and carry)  Putter in top well, Drivers, Woods, Hybrids down the left.  Irons left to right from top with wedges on bottom.  Keeps it pretty solidly organized and easy to find stuff in almost every situation.

Good luck with your recovery.  Keep up with your Physical Therapy after it's done.  My FIL & father both had knees replaced.  One did all of his PT work and the other didn't.  I'll give you a guess which one is having problems again.

I'll give that a try! I feel like is going to be a work in progress to get happy with how the bag is set up. I've played so long with a certain organization that's optimal (to me) for riding. I like the way everything there in your bag is easier to find.

47/44 for a 91 on Saturday. Went from hitting gentle fades 4 days earlier to pull hooks in the first 7 holes. Couldn't get comfortable with my wedges all round but am chalking that up to the persistent rain we were up against. 

Most importantly, one birdie and zero 3 putts!

Finally got out after 3 weeks off due to the removal of my gallbladder..

stunk to high heavens… felt lousy. Turns out it was the first day of a 5 day flu- even though I had the flu shot! Can’t catch a break lately it seems.

did I mention I stunk? Peeuuuuu!

anyways, feeling a lot better today, so off to the lake tomorrow…

Tuesday morning 45*, cloudy & 12-14 mph north wind.  Miserable morning, have no clue what I shot!  Lost 1 ball and was happy I finished.

One guy left after 4th hole, should have  left with him.

Here, he would have been called a wuss for leaving.

Air Temp is not the problem, north wind in the teens can be nasty.  
He’s getting over the Flu so he gets a pass…..this time.

So when is 93 a decent score? Today. 

38* with 10+ mph winds when I teed off. It “warmed up” to 43* entually, but the wind made it feel below freezing.

I played with my Tuesday league. We usually have between 40-50 players in 2 flights, but today we had 24 knuckleheads, lol. They combined everyone into one flight and played Gross Stableford. Somehow I managed to finish 3rd despite missing my number by 5.

Tough day at the office, not a lot of fun. I’m playing a 2 man tournament that starts Thursday, I’m just hoping I don’t get sick. I feel something coming on right now. 🙄
