Thanks, but as @sirchunksalot will tell you... "I am not a Sir.  I am El Conquistador."  🤣  (have had to listen to the Bob and Tom Show to know that one)

Finally a solid round after a few poor rounds out. I’ve been working on my swing and committing to changes instead of just my score. Today I hit 9 GIRS and was on fringe for 3 more. I had one dumb double and two three putts but still managed a 78 today. Best round in a minute. It was nice seeing my hard work on irons and wedges paying off today with solid ball striking. Hopefully a sign of swing changes paying off.

Another break in the run of cool, wet weather today and tomorrow, so I drove the 70 miles to Cottonwood Hill GC in Bozeman.  Paired up with a nice young kid attending MSU and we both played the green tees (6318). It had rained pretty heavy the previous two days and the course was wet but not sloppy at all.  Lots of heavy, dark cloud cover and rain in the distance, but winds were light and it stayed clear of us.  44/41 with only one DB and never having made a single putt outside 8 ft. 😖  Several great chances for birdie but the ER5v and I just could not get it done.  It felt like one of those rounds that could have easily been a sub 80.

I did get to test out the Tsi2 3w. I took my first swing with it (I mean literally) on #1, par 5 with 242 yards in.  I took the G400 with me in the truck but upon arriving decided to live or die with the Titleist.  I need to get some time on the range with the SC200 and see for sure, but it was pretty easy to get airborne and early indication is that it's longer by maybe 7-10 yards.  It definitely has a different feel and sound.  Time will tell but, thus far, my gamble looks like it will pay off.

Lush, green, and damp... not great for roll out but sure nice looking.

Have been driving pretty poorly since the season started a few weeks ago up here.

So went to the range and started working on things that worked for me late last year.  

Started hitting better 3 FW on the range and the next day it translated into very good distance gains.  Also my Driver started finding more fairways.  

Hoping this trend continues into Match Play starting next week.

... Starting to feel like Groundhog Day as I shot 71 for my last 6 rounds. A little stiff starting out and had a 10 foot eagle putt just off the front of the green and with the Rye dying out and Bermuda coming in the greens are pretty bumpy and I rolled it 4 feet past and it bumped offline for the birdie. Added one bogie and played the front in 1 over. Then I birdied 10, 11 and 12 just missing another on 13. Then on 17 the pin was perched just over a false front and I hit it 4 feet past the pin but it spun back seemingly sitting just above the false front teasing me and theeeeeen trickled off the green. With the bumpy greens I had no choice but to hit it 6 feet past the pin or it would just come back to my feet and I missed the putt for another bogie. So a par on 18 and ... another 71. Again, no complaints but it would be nice to shoot a different number. 🤪

... But the real reason for this post is at 102* the course was pretty empty as we walked and 4 different singles played through us in carts. With an empty course it was Nature Day and a glorious one at that. I was feeding a Roadrunner some organic nuts/fruit Probar and 2 other Roadrunners attacked her and took the food from her beak. I tried another little piece and they did it again! Roadrunners are very territorial and I have never seen 3 together. I dropped another and she just stood there with it in her beak til one of the other ones took it from her again and I realized these were her kids! I stayed there dropping probably 10 little pieces and she fed them every time never having any for herself.

... Then several hoes later a HUGE Retail hawk found a ground squirrel (they look like a mini prairie dogs) and after killing it, flew up unto a tree to have a peaceful meal in the shade. 

.... Cut up an organic Fuji apple and feed the rabbits on the far back 15th tee box. Cut them into small squares and the rabbits know it by now since I have been doing this all winter and spring. They jump away to the bushes and before I can even get back to my tee box they are back on the tee and eating the apples. 

... Finally on 18 two coyotes with tiny little coyote cubs ran across the fairway about 100yds in front of us. I have never seen baby coyotes in the wild but as I said the course was pretty much empty. They crossed over to #9, looked around while the cubs had a little wrestling match, then came back across 18 and back into the desert while we waited to hit out tee shots. 

... Finally I have never given my 80yr old pard any instructions but he has been flying open with his body when he jumps at the ball. 5'9" and 135 he needs to throw his body at the ball and hits it amazingly far for his age. I teed his ball up a little higher and told him to feel like his shoulders don't turn through impact. Impossible not to do of course but it helped him stay more square at impact and he hit some big drives. 4:40 minutes as we sat in the shade letting singles play through, enjoyed nature and didn't hurry in the heat. It really was an awesome day. 
 

This sounds like a lovely experience the only nature in my last round were black flies and mosquitos

This was one of my better rounds. I played the back 9 this morning. Driver was a tad bit inconsistent but found 4 out 7 fairways with it which is good for me. Putting was good except for the 15th hole, a par 3 over water. My tee shot was to about 24 feet but 3 putted. 🤬 I had one blow up hole number 16, the hole after the 3 putt, that nothing seemed to go right on but I didn’t 3 putt and I topped every shot. Parred 17 and bogeyed 18. Which for one who is often in the low 50s for nine is good. Oh and my shot of the day was on 17 but that is for another post. 😁
 

I made a friend on number 12.

... Nice picture. I was playing my home course back in Chicago on a very hot humid day and found one of these guys in the middle of the fairway inching along at a snails pace toward the lake. He had a good 100yds to go so I thought I would help him and put a towel over him as he retracted into his shell and started carrying him. I got about 20yds from the water when he violently flipped, flailing his legs and fell out of my hands. Crazy heavy I thought he might have damaged his shell and when I tried to reach him again he snapped and flailed at his "tormentor". I watched for a few minutes but the guy didn't move so I walked back to my ball, hit my shot and when I looked back the hopefully uninjured fellow was slowly crawling to the lake. 

... Sometimes nature just doesn't need our help even if we have the best intentions. 🙄

... Haha true dat and maybe they should change the name from Aguila GC to the ACME GC. The crazy thing is this course is completely packed all winter and spring and hard to get tee times but as summer approaches and all the snowbirds are back home it can be pretty empty. Yesterday was an extreme example as we started at 2pm and at one time the ranger told us only 3 groups were on the entire course so nature was having an awesome day with very few humans in carts disrupting their day.

Today was our weekly MGA round.  2 man best ball net.  We only got in 15 holes before we were rained out (thunder and lightning in area).  It was a shotgun start, so the pro shop figured out which 9 holes everyone played and went from there.  I was playing okay ... 8 over thru 15 holes (2 doubles!) but my partner (8 Hcap) was having a bad day.  Of the 15 holes, we only used his ball on 2 holes.  Anyway, we didn't win, but I did win a skin.
