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. 🙄

Be careful, we’re not used to cold weather.

Good, but also really, really bad? 47/43 -- 90  It was another Jeckyll/Hyde day.  Way too many doubles today coming from a variety of sources.  I'm just misfiring right now while trying to implement the swing adjustments.    Still though, when the swing was working it was great.   The high point of the round is 5 pars on the back 9 and a tap in Birdie on the front. 

Driver -- Got better, but it's still out of sorts.  I hit it OK most holes and awesome on a couple.

Woods -- Worst day with my 3W in a while.  I should have left it in the bag after the first two times I topped it 30 yards...  But hey, I needed to make sure I could do it twice more.

Hybrid -- Also not great.  I only pulled it once and the result was much like the 3W.  I haven't figured out to hit these clubs consistently from the slot yet and I refuse to continue hitting outside in with them just to get a result.  So I'm guessing more pain is in store for a bit. 

Irons -- Pretty good when I kept my swing smooth.  Lots of range work is starting to make the addition of dropping the club into the slot feel more natural.  I just don't have the best feel for face control yet so my misses are blocks or pulls.  Not a lot of movement.  The ones I do hit well are getting good height and landing and sticking.  Best shot today was a 5 Iron from 193 that I stuck to 5 ft.  Lipped the birdie out....

Wedges -- I'm not playing confidently with these right now.  Got some yips and it's showing.  I warmed up and felt fine, but just did not do well pitching or chipping today.

Putter -- Ugly day.  My speed was off and every lag putt blew by the hole to 6 ft.  There were many three putts and at least three lip outs that I can think of.  I will say though that I didn't miss from inside 4 ft so that was a plus.

I'm going to take a breather for a few days.  Maybe till Monday.  I've been going really hard since my lesson last Thursday and I'm sore and think I may have overdone it.  Time to let my body and mind have a few days off to approach everything fresh again.  

PS:  Also, I think the fact that this 330lb dude is now carrying instead of pushing a cart is probably a major contributor to the tiredness.  Fortunately the replacement backpack strap (the original arrived with a broken buckle) for my SL2 will arrive tomorrow.  I think that will be a lot easier on my back walking.

Course is still closed.  Nearly all the snow is gone, but the ground was frozen for so long that the water hasn't sunk in to our sandy soil.  Puddles on the greens.  The good news is that high temps will be in the 40's for the next 10 days; lows around freezing at night.  The pro thinks it might be possible to play this weekend.  My wife and I are signed up to play in a 2-person scramble on Saturday.  

I'd like to play at least one more time before I leave for Palm Springs next week.  Probably still taking my MacGregor irons since I have played them most recently in December before it snowed, and they worked pretty well.

Played Desert Hills with @kahl2069and our friends from Canada yesterday.  I carded a 36/44 and my first even par nine in a couple of years 🥳. One bogey on the #1 handicap and one birdie on #2 par 5. All excited from the results, I started the back nine with a DB 🤣.  I managed to keep the lug nuts on and caught a couple of breaks on errant drives but it was one of those penthouse to the outhouse rounds.  

They were having a PING Demo and I had a few minutes to test out the i59 with the Recoil ES780 shaft (one of my short list from the fitting).  They are close to Blueprint like in appearance and definitely one I think the player style aficionados should have a look at.  I hit about 20 balls and really liked it, both in sound and feel.  It was a standard lie, so I was catching mostly toe side, but ball flight was quite consistent.  

I then asked about "the one with the black sock on it"?  "Sorry, that one's not available for test".  It was the i525 😲.  My quick search found very little intel on these except a golfwrx thread with an incorrect link.  Being a diligent spy, I asked if I could take a photo and got denied.  New construction and materials from the i500 and with "much better sound" - clearly the folks at PING worked to improve that commonly stated con. He said it was scheduled for retail sale early April... what a tease 🙂.

No photos of clubs under embargo.  I’d show you some of the new Ping putters but couldn’t take a picture of them, but will say they do feel great and roll the ball amazingly well.  😁

Between playing a new course, shoulder injury a couple of weeks ago, and winter conditions on the turf, my game is in the tank.  Handicap has gone from 7.3 to 8.6 in the last month.  With a low of 6.8, my handicap will likely be restricted in no time.  Anyway, shot an 84 today.  2 birdies and a couple of throw up holes.  Really struggling with short pitches/chips and the tight lies.  I tend to be a bit steep and I know that I'm moving way more than I should be.  Although I work on it at the chipping practice area, I choke at the most inopportune time and hit fat, leading edge digs into the turf, and the ball pukes on itself far short of my intended landing area.  On the positive note, I made some stellar putts today.

OK....got that off my chest!!!!  Good chance to see some snow Saturday.  Gee thanks!

😲   C'mon man!  I know you can do better than that!  

If it's your right shoulder, it sounds like maybe it's preventing you from not getting your humerus through the stroke to your left side as Monte says.
