On Sunday afternoon I got a hall pass to get out and go golf for a 3 hour window between the responsibilities of life. I met up with a single on the first tee. Nice guy, grew up right beside the course but only started playing last year in the covid boom. a college baseball player, and once he works out a consistent golf swing he is going to mash the golf ball.

My game was fine, my short game was really good. 11 putts through 9 holes and a -1 total score. I got a par on 10, then birdied 11 to get to -2 for the round. This was easily the lowest score I have had on a course this late in a round. But... my 3 hour hall pass expired and I had to head off the course and to Home Depot to pickup some drywall screws and thin set... Yep, I left my best round going ever to get back to remodeling a bathroom...

FYI, Home Depot was open the night before... just sayin'  😀

Oh how I love* how this game can change so quickly:

Played a friendly game on Friday, last chance to finalise the Nippon Modus review. 

1st: 3 wood - 290y, chip & 2 putts - par

2nd: 3 wood - wedge to 5 feet - birdie

3rd: bunker - chip - 2 putts - bogey

4th: 3 wood - 5 iron - chip - putt - birdie

5th: 6 iron - 2 putts - par

6th: 3 wood - 8 iron - chip - 2 putts - bogey

7th: 3 wood - 7 iron - chip - putts - bogey

8th: 8 iron to 10 feet - lipped out - par

9th: 3 wood trees - chip out - 8 iron - chip - 2 putts - double

 

4 over after 9 - looking good and on for my best ever round!!

 

10th: Driver 320y - 5 iron - 2 putts - par

11th: 3 wood - 9 iron - putts - par

Bah!! Why do I play this game. 🤬 I have a tee time tomorrow morning. Driver was all over the map it seemed. Only 2 fairways hit. Hitting my irons thin again. Only needed my hybrid and 3 wood once during the 9 holes and hit them both as well I could possibly hit them so that pleased me. I had a sand save lip out on the 9th hole and settled for a bogey. Another 9 holes in the low 50s.

So @fixyurdivot... does this post make you feel better prior to the 2022 MGS PNW Outing... or not?  🤣

Played better than I have in a while. 38/44 82. I started to run out of puff on the back, walking in the humidity sure sucks some energy out of you. When I got home I took the 3 wood and 2 hybrid out of the bag because I just don't use them.

Got to have a long club besides driver, and the 3H is not enough.  I know.  It took me awhile to find the right head/shaft combination, but I'm happy now.

My career low of an 80 included a 9 on the card. Still haven't broken into the 70s.

Also, I'm having a hard time finding sympathy for a round where you got an eagle... 😜

Nice course!!  Sounds like parts of your game are coming together.  Your pro should be able to identify your exact cause of the shanks; there are more than one.  It's such a common problem as you have heard from many of us, that pros have seen it more than just a couple of of times. If it makes you feel any better... a shank is only 0.5 inches from being a solid shot.  😂

It's been plaguing me for a few weeks, except for the first round I played with the Mizuno's ( which I still love). I think playing with guys from work I'm trying too hard to kill the ball and impress them. I guess sometimes being a contributor to a golf forum has it's social pressures 🤣. I'm hopeful that an instructor will be able to get me back to making decent contact.

Had a quick 13 this afternoon, and made a few long putts. Was scoring well,  yet not playing well…

Back to playing well after 6 weeks or so in the wilderness that is implementing swing changes/thoughts after my 1st lesson of the season. 4 straight rounds in the 70’s, including yesterday at Coral Canyon. Literally can’t remember a time where I was hitting driver better…. Bali hai tomorrow will be a good test…

Yep I ran out of gas the last 2 holes in the Saturday Shootout and I was riding. It had gotten humid and I had drank plenty of water but had forgotten to pack my Pedelyte mix. I usually drink one a side in hot weather.

200+ with the hybrid, I think I'm fine. I love my 3 wood but I just don't use it.

Owen and I played the back nine at River Heights yesterday.  My new driver came in, a Rogue ST Max D, so I was excited to see what it could do.  

The first hole was our best look collectively, a 210 yard par three.  My tee shot stopped on the fringe and his was just off the green to the right.  Both chipped to within two feet and tapped in for par.  That was pretty much my highlight but just the beginning for Owen. 

He was playing really well and all aspects were coming together.  He had a couple birdies and recovered nicely from the few errant shots he had on his way to a 39 (+3).  He even hit a missile when he used my driver on a hole.  

First opportunity to hit my new driver... mis-hit.  But even the mis-hit carried much further than expected.  Second chance, on 13, was better, actually putting me in trouble for hitting too far.  The rest of the round was good; I need to mess with the settings a bit to dial it in.  

Rest of my game was a hot mess.  Chunked a few irons and had several wedges off the toe.  Shot a 47 (+11).  Happy that I'm upset with the round, if that makes sense.

Sammy Hagar may not be able to drive 55 but I can score that for 9. 🤦🏻‍♂️ Driver was spraying today, with the return of an ugly slice. I’m getting proficient at chipping out of trouble. Bah. I found water on 3 different holes. Two in the same pond, one on 3 and one 6. My putting was good, several tap ins and lip outs. Two 1 putts and one 3 putt. Of all the clubs in my bag my  4 iron is my most consistent club.

Laughing with ya, not at ya.  Sometimes its good to get one of these dumpster fires out of the way now and then. 😆
