Awesome day and first round of the season.  It's sunny and clear skies but the temps are between 40-50*.  It was really tolerable but the wind made for a slight challenge.  

Some equipment notes that I'll dive into further...

I played the front 9 with the Srixon Z Star XV Divide and the back with the TP5 from last season.  

On a windy day, the TP5 was easily 10-15 yards shorter on approaches.  I was one full club under on essentially all back 9 approaches.

Conversely, the XV was a bullet.  Just awesome throughout the front 9.  I didn't really think too much about the optics with the short game but one thing it did NOT do was get in my head.  I could see this becoming the 2022 ball for me.

The cover likes to hold onto dirt...I don't know how else to describe, it just has less of a smooth proV1 cover and has this tacky but not tacky finish.  

So for the round...38/40 78.  2 doubles (1 & 7) 2 birdies (5 & 😎 and 2 missed birdies from inside 4' (15 & 17)...those one stung.  Truth is, I was getting hungry and was running out of gas.

33 putts, 7/14 fairways, 9/18 greens.   

 

 

 

Heck yea. Brave soul in shorts. We have the same Esther and that air is sharp but sun feels realllllly good.

solid round

Weather is nice today; upper 50s, though overcast and 15ish mph winds.  Owen and I had enough time to walk the front nine at River Heights.  

Swapped out one of my wedges for a C3I 65° wedge I picked up from goodwill the other day.  It's a pretty awesome club.  Tried it out a bunch today and other than thinning one into oblivion I was very happy with it.  Going to stay in the bag this season for sure.

Overall my ball striking was good today other than totally duffing an 8 iron.  I'm starting to regularly overshoot the green on long approaches, which is a good thing.  I just need to mentally catch up to that reality.

Putting was absolutely horrendous.  Sometimes I misread the break, sometimes my stroke was offline, sometimes my speed was off, and oftentimes it was a combination of all three, lol.  

Shot a 49 that I'm pretty happy with.  Owen beat me by a few strokes, but that's to be expected!

@bens197inspired me to get a quick 9 in. Wind was swirling in and out with some serious gusts but it was sunny and extremely pleasant to play weather wise actually.

+3 (38) with 2 bookend doubles, 6 pars and a bird……the doubles were bad misjudgements and the greens were pretty hard and not receptive. 

Tale of the day was bombs off the day, wind helped on 1 but I had 5 drives over 280…..

putting saved me a couple times as usual. Absolutely in love with EvNROLL

I was very happy because I was making the shits I wanted but the wind definitly  carried some balls further than I anticipated and the back of these greens are death.

Sounds like a good day to be out and those were some bombs you hit.  From the looks of the screenshots you posted, it looks like you were doing good with the putter, too. 

As far as the sh#t's you made, I really hope it was a clean round. 😂

Damn autocorrect! Thanks for the catch lol!

yes the putter actually saved several pars. I said it in my review that I literally get over every putt and expect to make it. The last hiked I doubled playing ping pong with my chips and buried a 15’. The guy j was playing with just said that totally just saved the round. He was right, 3 putt that and all the other stuff doesn’t matter

Speaking of numbers, when did this happen?  You must have Brian constantly looking over his shoulder now 😆.  Nice going! 👏  Oh, and I officially don't like you anymore 😉.

Past TWO years went from about 10 to what was 5.9 at the beginning of the year. My last round took a spot and dropped a 9.6 off. I’m shooting for 3/4 this year…..pray for me!

Join the club! There is a line that doesn’t like me 😂 bryan has been busting my balls all season because “I have not played with him”. admittedly I play my worst golf against him….he messes with my head

Shot 82 again today.  Interestingly, yesterdays 82 was 41/41....todays was 41/41 .... more interestingly, all 4 41s contained one birdie and one double bogey.

Close to breaking 90, shot a 91, my best round to date.

Those two triple bogeys really hurt. One of them I just made poor choices. By poor choices, they weren't risky choices, they were just dumb. The dumbest was trying to putt from way too far off the green in April PNW conditions when it had just rained. Ball didn't even make it to the green. 

Congratulations on the personal best, Derrick! It's good to see all the hard work you've been putting in is paying off.

I appreciate it El Conquistador! Practice is showing signs of improvement and in starting to feel a bit more confident. I'm off Friday and hoping for some good weather to at least get on the course for a bit.
