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

It did, in fact. It was a picture of your face...

Went to the CountryClub for Easter buffet. Well it was a beautiful day and I just so happened to have my golf clothes and clubs in the car. We had two cars there so after the buffet I said boywhat a great day for golf. I got the look but eventually I wore the wife down.  She said fine we will see you later. 

The breeze I imparted in the room was enough to fly a few napkins off the tables as I headed out the door. Course was wide open. Finially no wind and sunshine. Shorts and a golf shirt made for some easy swinging and was hitting greens in regulation instead of coming up short.

Two birds and a bogey on the front and one bird and two bogies on the back for a 71 which is par for the course. Everything is starting to come together and feeling good again. Even the chipping is back in tune.  I birdied the number 1 handicap hole which is a rarity. 

Just to add icing on the cake.. I can see a hint of green trying to come out in the fairways. 

Good shooting 👍

I think it was a complete coincidence you had your clubs in the car and it sounds like it worked out good for you. I'm glad you were able to get out and it's good to hear its starting to green up. Great shooting, Tom!

Yes it was a complete coincidence that I put a pair of shorts, golf socks, golf shoes, hat, and clubs in the car without being seen before heading over to the club. 😃

I’ve had about 2 weeks of bad play, these swing changes are really taking a toll on course. This weekend frustration took over. I just gave up and tried going back to old swing feels, and that surely did not help. After a couple glasses of vino, I realized this is just part of the process. I am gonna take the bad, and focus my practice this week around that and record more of my swings during practice and review them. Back to the grind tomorrow.

I've been having muscle spasms in my back for awhile; mostly getting out of bed in the morning... figured it was my new pain for the year.  So, today my wife and I played with the other couple we are playing with at a charity scramble at the end of the month.  

We played a scramble again like we did last weekend; used 4 drives from each of us.  We did much better today with 8 birdies, but we also had 2 bogeys (mostly due to the still-punched holes in the greens).  I had a couple of poor shots into greens that hurt my back, but other than those I felt pretty good.  I did mishit my tee shot on the par 3 #15 to 4 inches for a tap-in.  🤣

I was the putting anchor; my speed was dead on today, but some putts didn't break like normal because of the punch holes (generally the holes tend to take some break out).  

I also think I've found a replacement for my 2H for long shots... Callaway Epic Max Heavenwood.  I've never hit a FW so consistently well... straight... and I can even draw it very easily.  I have 29 more days from CPO to see if it's just a "honeymoon effect".

Don't get frustrated with on course play when you are making swing changes.  They take time and should only be the focus during practice.  Unless you are playing a practice round, you should just go out and play without swing thoughts.  Focus only on the target.  When your swing changes begin to become your new normal, then you will see on course improvements.  Good luck!!

I appreciate it, yeah I had way too many swing thoughts. The target was almost an afterthought. I have been a mess.

Played tournament this past Saturday, and for the first time in a long time I had everything working, Driving was consistent, Irons were really good, chipping and putting continue to be the backbone of my game. Putting was as good as expected with the greens full of Poa Anna..so it was putt and prey .. had some putts that it would just jump off line as the very end.. Frustrating, but everyone had to deal with it, so it was who can survive it the best.

The unfortunate thing that happen in this round was coming out the bunker on #2 after hitting a great bunker shot.
As I was stepping out of the bunker, I heard a pop on the bottom of my foot (per webmed Plantar Fascia Rupture)  So I had to hobble the rest of the round, good thing it was on my right foot , it think if it would have been my left I would have to withdraw.

Trying to get an appointment today to confirm. Could be some very minimal golf for the next few weeks if not months.

Hope it's not serious.

... But I am about to do a mini version of winter layoff as I am leaving for Brooklyn to shoot some Humana commercials and an infomercial and won't be back til Saturday. Most I have taken off in 1.5 years since moving here is 2 days and I didn't play this weekend making it an 8 day layoff!  I know some Northeners would tar and feather me for just missing 8 days only but for me that is a long time. 🤪

Take your clubs and take a 50 minute drive to Bethpage while you are up there. Then it's a business expense.
