I haven't been talking much about my game lately.  Frankly, I was growing weary of talking about my poor play and I'm sure you guys were tired of hearing my whining 🙂  

Made a bit of a turn today and a little bit of the old me showed up.  On the front 9, I was 2 over going into #9 when I hit a poor drive into the fairway trap, a poor shot out, and then 3 putt for a double bogey and a 40 on the front.  On the back, I'm 1 under thru the first 6 holes (including the tough Lost Tres Diablos) when I come up short on the par 3, blade a wedge into the back trap, barely get out and two putt for yet another double.  Close the back out with a 38 and card a 78 for the round.

On the par 3 #4 playing at 163 yards, we had 3 out of 3 birdies for the team (playing low 2 net).  The pic below shows the 3 balls -- I was the last to hit and got inside both of them.  We all made our putts..

Nice round that had the makings of something better.  Seems like you are either getting used to the different grass, or it has changed with the warmer weather. Either way, keep it up!!

BTW, we aren't tired of your whining; reminds us that we aren't the only ones!!  Besides... @Yellow Ball needs more material.  🤣

Stu decided that walking the course with his Motocaddy would not be in the cards in his future and since I did show a lot of interest during testing he decided to give it to me with the cart bag as well. That was totally out of the blue and shows that kind of guy he is. I was pretty floored with his generosity and he didn't want anything in return. He just wanted a fellow spy to use it.

Big Stu sorry to hear that about not being able to walk the course, but WOW what a nice gesture!!! Tom I hope you really enjoy it!!!

👍👍👍

Before I did something stoopit to myself the other day that will put me out of action for a little while (so this is the last long, boring story for a while 🤪) .. I did get to play a few holes with my wife and friends in the annual community outing where they live.

None of us are great golfers so we just decided to play our own informal scramble .. use the best tee shot, best 2nd, best approach.

My contributions to the team effort reflected my typical golf round - either awful, brilliant or almost...

For example...

First tee shot = awful. Low, left into the trees. Not playable. Fortunately one of the ladies put us into a great spot for our 2nd shot!

Second tee shot = brilliant. Par 3 about 160ish uphill to an elevated green, can't see the putting surface, pin front-right with a very deep bunker in front. Hit it high and straight and onto the front right part of the green. Then.. we all missed the birdie putt..!

Third tee shot = awful. Low, left and short. My second shot was good but an almost as the other guy's was in a better position so we used his. My short approach ended up being the best .. online to the pin, but maybe 20+ feet short so another almost.

Fourth tee shot = brilliant. Left the driver in the bag and took the old Bertha Mini and smashed it out there into the dogleg, left-middle of the fairway. My second was another almost - nice trajectory, great distance, just a leettle to the right of the green and into a tough spot to try to get up and down from....

Fifth tee shot = almost. Low, left but it was downhill so got some extra rollout. Other guy's was on the right side of the fairway and again in a much better position for our second. My second = awful (boy it's good to be playing a team scramble when you're not having a great golfing day!). My approach .. another Par 5 .. from the right rough was another almost .. the right distance but pulled left of the pin and ended just off the green.

See? A little bit of everything in every golf round 😂

But then... I turned back to look at my alignment and swing path; I was standing on a mound facing uphill towards the green and where the ball had been was a little below my feet. Then... something in my left hip *popped*...

So I spent the rest of the round driving the cart and drinking a few Buds!!

I hope everything is going to work out for you on the hip front.  Nothing major I hope.

Cant wait to see your thoughts on this as well. Was recently reading an article about calories burned/general exercise with a cart, push cart and a motocaddy. Motocaddy had the best elevated heart rate and calories burned (faster pace when walking normally not having to push) which surprised me. That plus the review has me intrigued on these now. 

Glad to see the cart stays with a fellow spy!

I must have read the same article. It confused me the you burned more calories with a Motocaddy versus pushing or pulling a three or 4 wheel. Then the more I thought about it, it made sense. You can walk faster not dragging something around.

Same exact thought process for me.  Probably a much better walk form wise too after thinking about it......I forget what article it was but we must have been on the same one.

Would agree with you in that idea of form, I gave up a pull cart for a push cart because of the imbalance on my spine while walking.  I even let my push cart run when it is downhill and not going to end up in trouble to walk upright with less strain on the back... sounds like a good investment for those of us with mobility issues even if they are minor.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

Felt that way last week and a few times throughout the years.  But, it only takes that one magical shot to get you hooked again and playing like you belong on the PGA tour😄.  Hope that happens soon for you!

Just saw this again and noticed this time that you did not have the Official MGS "Hole In 1" badge yet on your tag.  Did you request it yet?
