How'd you play?

Brought COVID back from my vacation, and while I'm feeling better I definitely have tried to push it too far twice now.

Before I got sick, I shot a 79 (two Sundays ago now) and then somehow pulled off a 78 the morning I started to feel "off." Was wiped out for about five days and tried to play 18 Sunday but quit after about 12 holes because I was exhausted. 

Waited all week to recover some more and tried 18 again this morning. I made it through about 11 or 12 holes before just hitting a wall and calling it quits.

Played OK for the first nine holes both times, shooting 40 and 39. My putting was horrendous today, which was unfortunate because my driver didn't cost me a single stroke. First drive of the day was piped 298 yards dead straight.

Hopefully this fatigue goes away quickly as I'm running out of season!

Good luck, the thing really does take a toll on the energy side of things.

Biggest gamechanger for me with the wedges has been the grind. There's a lot of forgiveness baked into the Edel V grind that I didn't have with my Cobra MIMs. The leading edge relief and the trailing bounce really work well for my swing, especially off of the mushy and wet bluegrass fairways I spend most of my time on. 

The moveable weight is a nice touch also, especially in the toe where it really excels around the greens. I can hit a nice high and soft pitch now that really wasn't part of my game before. My short game touch has left me over the past two weeks or so, but overall I'm pretty comfortable around the greens now. 

I do miss the black finish of the MIMs, which was much nicer in the harsh morning light. But the Edels have definitely secured their spot in my bag.

42 yesterday in a league sub night... with triple on the last. Devastating finish from just too much heat and sweat. Honestly thought on the last tee shot my 5 iron was going to come out of my hand. Back at it tonight, then a weekend away from golf, which will be nice.

Ever run into a course that's rating and slope doesn't match how it actually plays?  I  Played Santa Anita for the first time from the tips and was happy to walk away with a 46/46 92.  Not too bad for having to hit every shot aside from the tee with the ball well above or well below my feet.  

It's only 6400 yards from the tips, but what I did not realize even with the description of 'links like undulations' was exactly how big, steep, and everywhere those undulations are.  There's hardly a flat lie on the course.  On top of that almost every green was raised, protected by bunkers, postage stamp small, and heavily sloped.  Unfortunately they were also painfully slow which didn't help the day for me.  There wasn't a single hole that wowed me but taken as a whole it's a great course.  If the conditioning were closer to CC than muni it would probably be a top course in the LA area.

Glad to hear...I haven't been as dedicated to the forum as much lately for some personal reasons but the Edel test was one I was looking forward to read.  I'll get into it soon.  

Keep up the good play 🙂

Had a decent front nine, felt like I was striking the ball well but was getting lots of bad bounces and kicks. Still managed a 41. But my round fell off the rails on the back nine, started missing my lines and was still getting bad bounces and went on a run of bogeys and doubles.

Somehow though on the last few holes my driver started straightening out a bit from my usual cut, so I decided to take a very aggressive line on the last hole. Started directly over the houses on the left of the hole, with a baby fade to cut the corner. Normally I play this hole safe with an iron into the fairway, since a short drive is in the first pond, and too much fade finds the second pond, but I hit a near-perfect drive and managed to birdie the hole for the first time ever.

Ended up with an 85, which is right on my course handicap. If I had managed to avoid my 6-hole blowup on the back nine (I was +9 on holes 11-16) I feel like breaking 80 was in the cards. Alas, it will have to wait until another day!

I hate bad bounces.  I get more of them than good bounces.  Why can't the ball just go where I aimed it?  🥴

Or as is more the case for me, if the ball is going a little bit right of where I aimed, why does it always bounce further right? Why doesn’t it bounce back to the middle?

I mean, you would think it would be 50/50, but that hasn’t been my experience 😬😜

Yeah, not for awhile; my doctor said to take amoxicillin before the dentist visit.  He thought I should take it before every visit... forever!. Cheap insurance.  However, my dentist said that after a year or so, it's not needed so I quit after 5 years.

Doc told me pretty much the same.  They are supplying me with the antibiotics B4 dentist visit.

Played 10 holes with LarryD today at his club. Respect of lightning chased us off the course.

 

I was 2 over for 10 holes, lots of really solid shots, 3 memorable 9 woods and a very nice birdie on 1. 
 

I’m hitting it well right now. The course was in great shape.
