I've been playing in AZ for 25 years and have never had the heat impact me like yesterday. It wasn't even THAT hot at 104°. Was up all night with horrible leg cramps and stomach problems. I'm realizing now that I had a stomach bug coming on while I was playing so that might be why I was physically struggling so much half way through.

 

... I quite literally feel your pain. I came down with a really bad sinus infection after flying 5 hours to and from Brooklyn and shooting an infomercial with a 3 hour time difference. I have not played golf in 13 days and that is the longest layoff I have had since moving to Phoenix. Finally feeling better and playing tomorrow with low expectations as I have lost some strength after doing nothing but sleeping and resting for 2 weeks. Btw my car registered 106* yesterday when I went to Whole Foods and my first time out of the house. 🤪

I have you a like on this but feel the 😱 emoji would have been more appropriate. 

I'm glad you're finally feeling better, Sam. I hope you can have a good time on the course tomorrow.

Played Saturday and today. Yesterday I hit the ball well off the tee but just landed many times in the rough a few feet off the fairway. The rough was incredibly thick and difficult to get out of with any solid contact. Irons were iffy on the front 9 but got hot on the back. Putter was rough the whole day. Early returns in the Scotty switch were terrible. 48 on the front and 43 on the back. I left so many strokes in the sides out. One birdie the whole day on the par 3 17 which played 215. It was a fantastic shot. Still need to work on my alignment to my target, I am having a problem with over swinging and “chickenwinging”. 
today was a different tale, right out of the gate I knew I had to hit fairways, 12/14 for the day. The first 3 holes though I had 8 putts with 6 on the first 2 holes from inside 15 feet. In general I believe I should have walked away with 3 pars but started off +3. I tried to be too perfect the rest of the day especially with my irons. I tried to hit everything right to the pin because my putting was so awful. 51 putts for the day. Lag putting and putts inside 5 feet were not kind to me. I’ve never burned so many edges in one round. Towards the end before fatigue set in I did start hitting my irons better, I really had the idea at the top of my swing to keep the elbow in, I finished with good results. Really solid strikes and positioning into greens. However I had 2 triples on the back, I could never get much going the whole day. 47 on the front and the back. With such a bad weekend I think the Scotty is going back in storage for the trusty Spider to return. Too hot so many fairways today without results was disheartening especially with the distance off the tee being close to 270. Going to work on irons and putting before getting back out.

When it was our turn to tee off, we had been on the course for an hour and played two holes!!!  I was ready to quit, but my wife and friends said "What else are we going to do?"...  I said "Go to the bar!"

Similar thing happened to my wife and I today - it was a really nice day and I expected the course to be busy, but... 

We think we're getting ready to take the tee and a group of four young guys walk on and say, It's our turn. Fine, no prob, go ahead.

Wellll......

We wait. One guy hits. We wait and watch. Another guy hits. Another wait. Rinse and repeat.

Now these tee shots did not go very far. Nor very straight. They're all in carts and driving back and forth looking for balls .. back and forth .. then there's some walking around .. then one by one very slowly there are some second shots...

Which did not go very far. Nor very straight.

We watch for a few more minutes .. wondering if they might acknowledge us and wave us through? Nope.

Finally I'm getting edgy enough and look at my watch - it's *FIFTEEN* yes One-Five minutes since they'd started to tee off, and .. they're still only about halfway up Hole #1.......

And then ... And then ... Two really ancient gents - I mean God bless 'em they're still out and golfing but they were literally leaning on each for support - then these two old coots amble over to tee off.........

"Honey .. let's take a break and get a beer."

A wise choice... that might have been the old guys' last round... ever!  Very nice of you!  😂
