Haven't post for a while but want to share.

After playing the game from the age of 13, at the age of 61 I hit my first hole in one yesterday.

Playing a tie at my Home course West Lothian Golf Club https://www.westlothiangc.com/course/. 18th, right in front of the club house, 135yds par 3 down hill with wind behind. A sweet hit Approach Wedge over the protecting bunker. Pitched about 2 feet from the hole and gently rolled into the hole. Got applause from the clubhouse and the Senior League team were on the 1st tee so they all congratulated me which added to the occasion

More than made up for losing the tie 3&2.

What made it sweeter is that I've been having problems with my irons and had the shanks up until a little work on the range on Wednesday.

Played nine holes this past Saturday. Weird round. Shot 44. Had 5 three put greens. One triple. Two birds, one on a par three and one on a par five. Both one putts. Four GIR. Was on the green or in the fairway on eight of the nine holes. Go figure. And I just read the posted article on putting so I thought I would post this.

My morning 9 on a beautiful day. I had the best driving round in forever. It put me in a place which I’m normally not familiar, the middle of the fairway. My 1st drive of the morning though was a snap hook into the trees. So I teed up a second and of course it was nice, high and straight. 🤦🏻‍♂️ My driver success was offset by my iron play. It seemed like I was was thinning everything left. My putting was ok. More 2 putts than anything, two 1 putts and a couple of three putts. 🤬 My wedge game was ok. I seem to hit my MD3 a bit better than my Mack Daddy CB on chips. But all in in all I had a most enjoyable round. My game is definitely improving.
 

The only birdies of the day.

... Feeling much better and my strength/energy has returned to almost normal. So with a second round under my belt with these I realize they were not soft stepped twice, just straight stiff flex. I was a little more aggressive today and they responded better and the brittle feel was gone but still too stout for me. Even though I hit my 7 iron around 165-170 with these, it is still a smooth swing and the r-flex Steelfibers are a better fit. They don't offer the TGi 85's in r-flex, hence the soft stepped twice request so I will re-shaft with Steelfiber i80's in r-flex and expect them to feel much better. So far I really like the Forged Tec heads.  

Great news.  Just a question.  How will you get the swing weight up?  Going to an i80 will drop you 1 SW compared to i95.

... Shafts are weight balanced to produce the same swing weight. But if it does come out lighter, I will just add lead tape to the head.

Better than Sunday but still not great 45/42 87. Driver, besides the first hole was a lot better. Hit my best of the day on 18, middle of the fairway about 250 uphill.

Owen didn't want to get up so I walked River Heights yesterday before work.  Walked up, mis-hit my driver and immediately put it away for the round.  Re-teed with my 3 wood and played that the rest of the day, never really done that before.  

It was interesting.  Took a few holes to realize that while my driver fades, my wood draws.  Had a few rough drives where I would set up and swing like it was my driver, but when I was on, I was really good.  

Can't hit my six iron to save my life; keep chunking the heck out of it.  Rest of my irons are slowly coming back.  Wedges deserted me though.  Either I wuss out and hit way short or I pull it long and left.  Putting was hot and cold.

Overall a decent day; 51/46 for a 97.  Five pars and only two 3 putts.

My game has been atrocious thus far this spring.  I can't get loose.  I'm sore all over.

After sixty years on the course, I may finally be done.

But I'm paid up for the year, so I'm still trying.

Lately, though, I've enjoyed the meeting up early for breakfast more than the actual playing.

Maybe some seriously hot weather will get me going.  I've always played my best on the scorchers.

Too soon to throw in the towel, but late enough to have to think about it.
