Played the back 9 and shot 44 having not picked up a club for 6 weeks.  5 pars and 4 doubles.... So yeah, im none the wiser. 

5.30 tee offs are always great though with everyone hanging around waiting for the sun to rise!

Yesterday I was called to play Wolf at the other course in town.  Haven't played there for awhile, but the course is looking better than it has in a long time; furry greens so putts were slower than I'm used to and they are going to punch them next week.

The front 9 was pretty good for me... 39, but I stumbled coming in with a double bogey, bogey, double bogey finish for a 45.  Woulda, shoulda, coulda!!!  I lost 4 quarters!!  🤣

Somehow I scored well, probably the 3 birdies…, but I didn’t feel like I played well.

im convinced that biorhythms play a part in your play. Some days you got it, some days you are just out of sorts. It’s amazing to me how the pros are able to play through the off days…

Some don't...  just like us.

They punched / sanded ours about 2 weeks ago. They’re VERY furry and slow

They did ours last Sun/Mon and didn't do a very good job sanding.  Of course the 30-50 mph wind on Tuesday didn't help; I think it blew a lot of sand out of the holes.  They keep the greens mowed pretty short so speed is OK; not as fast as they will be in a month, but they are a lot faster than the course I played yesterday.

@Mtbryant01 was nice enough to invite me to his club today and play. Great teach at Hoover Country Club with good weather also, albeit a little chilly to start the morning. Did not play my best, shot 12 over on the front and 6 over on the back for a 90. Irons still my weakness and also didn’t putt great either. Drove it well as I hit 70% of fairways and the ones I missed were not by much either besides one hole. Chipped well besides out of bunkers, which I did not do well.

I played my first round of Spark Golf on Thursday. It's been months since my first and only game.  I was really bad and double bogeyed almost every hole, so mostly just picked up and went to next hole. The guys I played with were great and put up with my slowness and terrible play. I'm going again next Thursday and hope to do better. At least I've been on the front 9 of this course once.

My game continues to be in the tank, as it has been all winter on the new course.  Putted very poorly today, as well as having trouble with the sand traps (wet, compacted).  The course is playing wet, so we're not getting much (if any) roll from our drives--pretty much get what you hit.  As a result, I'm struggling reaching the greens in regulation.  Couple that with being spooked at hitting the wedges out of the tight, but wet turf and it's a disaster.  I'm not striking the ball all that poorly, but the other aspects of my game have me pretty much snake bitten.  (Putting is normally good, but today was abysmal!).

We had 44 players yesterday for our Saturday Game.  Weather was cool 62-72 but Sunny. My play was horrific, but had its moments, with a Closest to the Pin on 130 yd par 3 #7.  I was 1’9” from the hole, made the putt and collected $21.  In all, I shot a 93 and was -3 on my Points Quota.  My shoulder did not feel good all day and was sore the rest of the day.

Meh. Had a really good practice sesh a few days ago so came in feeling positive, but just couldn't connect with the ball as well today... 🤷‍♂️

Despite the temps and chilly fingers .. even with gloves! and extra layers .. and wind and gusts I did manage a few nice shots (so I got that going for me 😄) but otoh the wedge game was more off than on.

Still more work to do!

One bright spot - the lone Par 5 on the front 9, that I made a messy double on last time, hit 3 decent shots in a row to get the ball onto the green in a not too bad spot behind the hole and not all that far away. But, of course, after leaving the first putt pretty close I just had to 3 putt..! 🤪🤣

Since it rained and snowed yesterday, I knew the course was going to be muddy. They also punched the greens. The fairways are still dormant. That was enough to make the decision to not keep score.  I also went out early so I could be home to watch the Masters. We had a frost delay but when I teed off It was 40 degrees and sunny. Not ideal but at least I got out.

All the woods in the bag behaved themselves. Hybrid was good. My iron game directionally was spot on but I was short a lot. The ground was soft and getting no bounce around the greens. Wound up with a couple balls plug at the edge of the green. My chipping which is normally very good decided to take a day off. I sculled one, came up short quite a few times. This put pressure on the putter. Putting was ok at best. Lag putts were good which left tap ins. Missed a few shorter ones but the punched holes in the green didn't help any. It's all good, it's early in the season and it was good to get out. 

Trying to get out and get the rust off due to an upcoming golf tournment that I'm in a week from Tuesday.

Played a 2 day tournament , scoring doesn't reflect how I was hitting the ball, I drove the ball really well, specially in the wind I thought the Stealth performed the best there. Irons game was solid and wedge game continues to be the strength. Missed a lot putts burning the edges, or lip outs.  Sunday putting was a challenge with the wind pushing putts around and you trying to hit them thru the wind. But overall felt good about my game trending in the right directions.

Bad scoring round. My chipping and putting was not there.  Playing at links style course with no trees and wind was strong   Ask the club pro how to play into a strong head wind 

some Suggestions and tips to try out against the wind  next time for me  

With the driver and 3wood tee the ball lower than normal and make the swing less upright    
With the irons take 1-2 clubs more and play punchy/knockdown shot.  Ball middle /back of stance with shorter length swing   Don’t use a tee or tee barely above the ground for those punchy shot 

Take out the hybrid  instead of 4/5 iron

Flighted low draw is easier than low cut

Baptism of fire this afternoon for the Halo irons… I’m playing the first round of a 2 day low gross low net tournament, and they’re going to be in the bag.
They have been terrific so far, but I’m not sure I’ve quite dialed in all my yardages. We shall see…🤞🏻

This can add spin and would be worse than normal tee height shots.

50* this morning but no wind!  Course was in awful shape, greens/tees horrible.  Got a few pars but spent more time looking for my Buddy Wayward shorts, the guy is really struggling.

I was happy with Driver & irons, dunno about Putting with the green as bad as it was.  Missed 2 Birdies but blaming greens.

I'm starting to worry about you. If you are driving around looking for your buddies shorts you are hanging around with the wrong group! 🤣
