Played 3 wood off the tee again to similar results. 

 

... 👍  Not only a good play for higher index players struggling with their driver but a good idea for anyone to play a round without a driver every now and then. Some of us rarely have an opportunity to hit a 3 wood and it is easy to get out of practice and/or loose some confidence so a round using only a 3 wood can really help with consistency and confidence.

Owen and I played the back nine at River Heights this morning.  I shot a +13 49.  Six bogies, two doubles and a triple.  Played 3 wood off the tee again to similar results.  Pretty nondescript round, but the fact that I'm breaking 100 (or 50) regularly is a solid feeling.

I played for years with 3w and Driver in garage.  It took a while for me to be able to hit Driver a decent distance and able to keep it in play.  3w was my friend.

The tides started to turn yesterday for me. Got out for an early day 18 with a friend, we even played match play. The round started off odd, great drive followed by my second shot going OB in to the river getting pushed away by the wind but I saved par with a good chip And 1 putt. The rest of the day picked up from their with 5 pars on the front finishing with 4 pars alone on the front 9. Unfortunately I had a triple bogey on the 5th hole because I had a hard time getting out of the bunker, my one downfall yesterday. But a 41 on the front is solid The back went pretty good, I slapped the ball around a bit in the 560 yard par 5 and ended up chipping in from 20 yards for a par save the close out my match, it was a sweet shot and the ball just barely trickled in the cup at the end, plus you could hear the ball hit the bottom of the cup which was cool.    It wasn’t until 14-17 where I just played sloppy, shanking one off the tee box and going OB again. +3 through the holes. Hit a fantastic tee shot on 17 the par 3,  crazy wind so it was playing close to 225. Hit a 4 iron to 45 feet and ended up 1 putting for birdie. Finished 18 with a par to finish off the day. 39 on the back for a total of 80 for the day. Best stay of the day was 27 total putts. One of my best putting performances, the practice paid off!  11/14 fairways hit and 7/18 greens, except 4 times I left it short just in the front center of the fringe. So I’d like to say it was 11/18. Just a fantastic day, really was pleased with all the practice I’ve been putting in and how I played. I really tried to focus on playing station to station golf. Fairway-green in reg- 1/2 putt. I even went back to my old scoring ways where I kept track of all my statistics which I think helped keep me in line

I also forgot to mention that because I had a triple bogey and my handicap was a 9, it was adjusted to a double and I shot 79. It doesn’t seem right breaking 80 that way🤷🏼‍♂️

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.

 

 

 

 

 

Even the pros go through that phase.  I read that Justin Thomas felt that way about 2 years ago.

Went for an MRI this morning.  I hate those so much.  I feel like a cartridge in a rifle chamber.

They played Sinatra to calm me down.

Last time they played Coltrane and it only got me agitated.

I hope you are talking about Frank to calm you down, Nancy would have just agitated me. 😆

As for Coltrane, maybe in an MRI it might be a bit much, but man that man could blow sounds from the sax that most other players can dare to emulate.  He was a true legend.
