Glad to hear you're doing better, at least health wise😄. Sorry you got stuck with hackers. Are you still playing mostly at Windmill? Did we get a new date for the Ohio meetup?

Thank you. Yes to Windmill, I just can't justify playing elsewhere by myself when it costs nothing for me to play there.
5th or 12th June.

My club is having our annual Highland Fling tournament (Ryder cup style) and today we played 3 9 hole matches.  Match #1 was best ball.  After 4 holes, my partner and I are down 4!  Tough road now.  I make a long putt to half the next hole and we're dormie.  I hit a nice drive and have 108 yards to the pin, hit the shot a bit past the pin and to the left....still a makable birdie putt.  The other twosome have reasonable par putts.  I burn the edge of the cup and we lose the match.  Match #2 is alternate shot.  My playing partner for this match struggled.  We lose the match 3 down with 1 to go.  Match 3 is another best ball.  All square through 7 holes.  I birdie the 8th hole to go 1 up and we're guaranteed at least 1/2 point.  My partner birdies the last hole for the win and full point.  Tomorrow -- 18 hole single match play and I'm squared off against the guy from the first match who waxed us.  Looking forward to taking him down!

That sounds like a lot of fun Carl.  So be honest, while you're playing this Ryder Cup format, who are you secretly playing as; DJ, Scheffler, Xander...? 🙂

I gotta get a bigger umbrella to cover me a bit better, but having that shade sure was nice. I'm a bit on the pasty side and thought that plus a lot of sunblock might keep me from being mistaken for a lobster. 

 

I would definitely need a vertical extension 😆.

Same course as last week. 3 strokes better (47) despite hitting less fairways and inconsistent iron play. Will give a more detail in breaking 90 thread

Nah I'm thinking we go against "type casting" and start auditioning from the group - someone who can play golf but doesn't have to be a scratch player (sfx movie magic remember) and looks about the right age and fitness level...

Horrible.

We had a holiday on Friday, wife’s got the day off on Monday, so we decided to have an impromptu weekend on the coast at a local summer home resort. Packed our car with overnight bags, food, dog and golf gear and headed off. I was so eager to play the resort’s 9-hole, with its par 3s, 4s and 5 that upon arrival I ran out to the course for an afternoon round.

As I was warming up, I shanked a ball, then a second, then a third ... I thought for sure I could get rid of it on the first hole. 

Nope. Breathing, stretching, telling myself to relax—I just couldn’t stop the shanks. 

To make matters worse, the beautiful course looked like this:

16C7D7D5-F358-4568-BBEE-0315A3F28792.jpeg.23f6acc12b4fd59a22088fc90750276d.jpeg

Tall grass means water hazards, they are everywhere, and I found them all. I can’t remember the last time I lost so many balls. The round was a lost cause, so I used it to get rid of my shanks. Realizing that I only had three balls left sobered me up at the 6th hole. I finally calmed down and bogeyed the 7th, bogeyed the 8th, and parred the 9th. Talk about collapsing at the finish line—I’m grateful to have played only nine holes. I don’t think I would have been able to finish 18.

Playing a new course threw me, for sure, but this was ridiculous. Hoping to claim redemption tomorrow.

Hittem well tomorrow!

Great opportunity, play well!!  It always feels special when you play a course of that stature.

Owen and I played Sycamore Golf Club today.  I put my new garage sale finds in the bag and they weren't bad.  Probably weren't any better than the ones they replaced either, but I like them well enough to stick with them for a bit.  

He actually only beat me by a few strokes, 89 for him and 93 for me.  Wound up being one of my better rounds to date.  We went out with the intent to take our time and really settle in, and aside from a few holes, it worked out well.  (Who would have guessed, am I right??)

I hit the new hybrid irons decently enough but again my issue is me and not the clubs.  Driver was solid; good distance and relatively straight.  Another instance where I believe I'm just not quite lined up properly.

Putting was good for me.  We usually leave the flag in since it was the rule when we started, but I've had six or seven putts in the last few rounds that we on line but hit the stick and bounced away.  Started pulling the flag on the back and I holed one using the back of the cup as a backstop.  Flag out from now on!

Oh wow, that sounds like fun. Be sure to take some pics and share 👍. So your goal should be to post a score that beats at least one PGA player on any of their rounds... from the amateur tee of course.

That's freaking awesome, Tom! I see on Twitter this morning that the Fried Egg had a flyover video on the course that you might enjoy watching as part of your preparation and give you an idea as to how the course is laid out.

I think that's a good goal and that Tom has a pretty good chance of taking out a couple of players.
