Is it just me or has the rounds/day on this thread been on an all time pace?  The effects of a pandemic combined with a long winter no doubt 😆.  It's great seeing everyone getting out 👍

I am a little surprised we don't have more "close encounter" entries but maybe that's just patina needing to be polished off?

Yup, last week or so traffic on this Thread is moving!!

Speaking of a close encounter, regular partner and I arrived at the course for our "regular" 3:40 tee time only to find the starters we usually find there who wave us onto the tee box not present and the other crew insisting we check in at the clubhouse.  We were also told there were two women (who were already sitting in a cart pointing in the wrong direction to head to the 1st tee) would be joining us for a foursome.  I watched them drive past as they made some comment about not wanting to damage my push cart and then watched as even the starter said he wondered where they were going, which was to turn around.  I bee-lined for the clubhouse to check-in quickly and my partner being a little slower to the clubhouse caught their rhetoric.

What they said was that they weren't going to wait to tee off and they both proceeded to tee off without hesitation.  The only thing I had to do was present my season pass card to the desk and return outside and saw them driving onto the first fairway without us.  The close encounter part being the ladies foursome ahead of them was still too close for my partner and I to tee off so despite the starter setting up the foursome, they decided they were playing without us and off they went.

(The starter directed us to go directly to the Cazenovia Creek crossing par-3 3rd tee quickly to avoid impeding the 2 earlier groups already on the 2nd hole.)  It was a hurried start and not the kind of experience we golf for but as we were moving up the par-5 4th fairway we noticed the lack of anyone behind us and stress melted away.  Even better the more we played the larger the gap became to the group behind us to the point that we did the wrap around to play holes 1 and 2 and finished about the same time as the second group that had been behind us when we crossed the creek on hole 3.  All done we did not have the best day but only dropped the few strokes from the rushed play on the first two holes of the day.

Close Encounter of the Worst Kind.

Played the back nine at River Heights today.  It was an interesting round; every hole had a different issue, lol.  I chunked my approach on hole ten a little...IMG_20220502_102508355.jpg.d453da725d140b13a8c60149cf3e3d5a.jpg

Hole eleven saw me top my seven iron tee shot.  It skipped three times along the water before coming to a stop safely on the other side!

On hole twelve I bladed three chips back and forth over the green.

And so on and so forth.  Just a bunch of weirdness.  Greens were freshly mowed but the recent rains meant clumps of grass were everywhere.  Here's how many greens looked: IMG_20220502_112927381.jpg.17c9db56bfd65000a81053ef50034cd1.jpg 

I had a putt on seventeen that looked on line until it hit a little clump of grass and turned hard right.  I'm not good enough to get mad about these things, though.

Shot a +14 50.  Another promising round!

First league night last night, shot +5. Round was full of really solid shots and I putted great, just had a few poor swings that kept it from being a great round. I've got the rest of the summer though, so wouldn't want to be all down hill from here haha

the irons (p770’s) are fantastic. They’re 7-15 yds longer, and I’ve been getting used to trusting them. The switch to the regular shafts (Ventus Red 6R) has also been great, and I’m finding that just taking a smooth swing is the key. The 5 and 6 irons in the (p790) are SO easy to hit. This combo set is kind of taking the sting out of getting older, as the extra distance, feel, and forgiveness, are making these things so pleasant to hit.

 

... You are an excellent living example of my philosophy that everyone should play the most forgiving irons they can effectively play. Awesome you found a set of irons that seem to be doing that for you! 👍

Totally agree with this. It’s not that the Hogan Ptx Pro’s aren’t great stix, but let’s be clear, half that set are butter knife blades. One cannot deny the true joy of a well struck blade shot, but forgiveness isn’t one of their main selling points.

the p770/p790’s still provide a wonderful feeling on a well struck shot, it’s just “different”.

Oh, I forgot to add one last piece of the puzzle that I’m now 2 rounds into. I’ve switched my grip to an interlock, vs an overlay. some might say that that’s not that big of a deal, but let me tell you, it’s significantly different.

it’s funny as I’m getting a new blister. The result of the switch, for me, has been a much higher degree of accuracy all across the board. It seems a bit easier to have a stronger grip, as that was one of my lessons, that is helpful.

Monday & Tuesday Execs…..  Monday borderline ready to quit, irons just not working.  I can feel myself sliding in my backswing to reduce pressure on my right(forward) leg producing low, almost skull shots.  But the putter worked!!!!

Tuesday birdied 1st & 9th with 💩 in between.  The sliding is continuing and will until knee surgery repair, I hope.

Cancelled all Wednesday golf for May, going to reduce golf thru the month.  June 2nd will be here quickly.

 

 

Just need to look at the golf game from the perspective of knowing that you have knee issues, yet still are getting out and at least enjoying spring weather, scenery, and having enjoyment with those shots which come off as planned. Better to have some fun and enjoyment rather than not being able to get out and play at all.

 

Best of luck with the knee surgery too!

After my trip with @Ben_Howell34 to Big Cedar Lodge (I’ll update on his post about how that trip was….it was incredible) I got to play with a buddy at my local club today. 

I shot a 75 today (my best this year and one off my personal best ever)

I had a chip in birdie and then….. a hole in one! Can’t even describe the feeling of seeing the ball drop into the hole off the tee. 149 yd shot, downwind. Pin is on the front. I played a full PW with the slightest fade. Hit 5 ft to the left of the flag, checked up on the side hill and started falling to the right towards the hole. The anticipation was real as I didn’t know if it was tracking or not. I saw it roll into the flag stick, catch the lip of the cup, do a 180 around the flag before falling in.

Beautiful weather, incredible day. I’ve had many lows while playing, but this is why I love going out again and again. The chase for perfection and today was pretty dang perfect.EAE73520-1DCA-402A-9D59-9258D25FDFC2.jpeg.1570a03573346aa9d3b746066451f95a.jpeg
