How'd you play?

Recommended Posts

Got out with @DiscipleofPenick today. Course was in pretty good shape and drier than my league course. Still some plugged balls and little roll, but decent. Hard part was the wind: 18-25 mph with gusts up to 45 mph. I ended up with a +15 86 after 40/46. Back 9 is a little longer and irons were too fat too often. An example of what happened because of the wind:

Driver, 4h and still a little short on a 360 yard hole. Unfortunately, there were not a lot of holes downwind.

Rain/Snow mix 40º and 12 mph wind = cancelled tee time.

Rain supposed to quit around 5pm and it should be 45º with only 5mph wind; might head out for a late nine.

Played at Windmill yesterday and it was like playing and walking on a sponge. Lost a few balls in the fairway due to plugging. We could see where they hit but just couldn't find them because they'd gone deep. So drop in the area and keep going.

Ended up carding a 43/39 82 for the first "official" round of the season. Which put my handicap down to a 14 even.

You played the Windmill! Did the 18th hole have a clowns mouth too. 34 putts for mini golf is a little high. 🤣

Friday Bacon Boyz, I played well but not a good morning.  We have a guy who had moved to another city and has returned.  He is not a crowd favorite.  
He started again on Politics and according to him is just one of his many subjects that he knows all.  I had him in our 4some and it wasn’t fun he just takes over every conversation.  Not to drag this out but 2 weeks ago I told him to cool it with the political 💩.  Obviously he didn’t hear me.  He may be looking for a new group but not my call.  This was my last time in same group as him.

You may need to remind him that he is in Florida. Political Subject Closed! 😁

... One of the great things about being a hippie in the late 60's and early 70's was unless we were protesting, everyone just kept their politics to themselves. Always comments about "long hair" but never politics. Nothing worse than someone bringing up politics on a golf course. 🙄

Got out with @ncwoz at the short muni to open my season, finally. Weather was not particularly nice. Mid-to-upper 30s, mostly cloudy, 15 MPH winds with 25 MPH gusts. Some snow at times... 🥶

Par 65, shot a 79 for a +14. Looked back and in perfect conditions last summer I shot 77. So not bad at all. The course has several par 3s that are long. Two are 220+ yards, and both played directly into the wind today. 

Hit driver and hybrid well, irons were touch-and-go, putter wasn't too bad. Short game killed me as I didn't have a ton of touch, which is to be expected, plus the wind made everything an adventure.

Lots of good to take away from the round and am excited for better weather to get here.

Totally agree! Even though the scores weren't barn burners, I feel like we played really solid given the conditions. Just another reason to look forward to warmer weather 😉

I had great hair in 1966 until “Uncle Sam” decided it should be shorter, a lot shorter😜

My son talked me into playing Sycamore Golf Club late in the afternoon today; 4pm tee time, 50ish but breezy.  Once again we played like trash.  We called it at the turn; I scored a +20 56 and he didn't keep score but likely was similar.

Nearly every hole at Sycamore is a straight par 4.  Well maintained but also, well... boring.  The rough is always extra shaggy so it's actually a bit of a penalty to miss the fairway, which we did pretty often.

On a positive note, Owen pointed out my issue with my irons; I'm basically just rotating and not using my arms at all.  Just the opposite of last year where I was all arms and little rotation.  My last two iron shots were much better as a result.  I wish I could be as observant as he is.

Next decent day looks to be next Saturday but I'm sure we'll get a round or two in before then, ha!
