Ever run into a course that's rating and slope doesn't match how it actually plays? 

Yup, every week. My home course is way harder than the numbers would lead you to believe. Anyone that comes in as a guest or even new members all say that the course is not rated properly.

1st time out in 1.5 months and it showed. Measly 89 with 5(!!) 3 putts. Can’t remember having more than 2 in a round before. Also topped my irons like 4 times. Good news is, I “still” shot 89 and drove it great. Only missed 3 fairways and 2 were on the edge. Distance was there too. 
 

Oh well, hopefully knocked the rust off for Pursell Farms tomorrow!!C271245B-0A14-4FEE-8C5B-6835A411DF7A.jpeg.b6c509328bbfdf7e76caabdb4872f1fe.jpeg

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

After the first one, my dentist prescribed them.  I think they cost $1.00 for a year's supply.  🤣  Only once did I forget to take them one hour before my appt.

Yes, absolutely.  I've read about the method used to establish course rating and slope but many surprise me.

Saturday nine. 47

had some great drives. Rest of the play was not so good. Glad I now have Shotscope to help guide my practice.

had two chances to get on par 5s in two over cooked a 4i on 8  then on 9, somehow pushed my 7i (I haven’t had a push with that club since I got the set).

 

lots of potential in my game once I piece it together

Played pretty well today... 76 and it was not one of my better driving days.  Shot EVEN par 37 on the front with two birdies and a +4 39 on the back nine.  Bogeys on 10, 11, and 12 was somewhat deflating, but started making pars again that included two sandy pars.

It never ceases to amaze me how slowly people can play. 

It's wild isn't it.  I dont get how people do it.  Even when I was a beginner I hated standing around.

It's not like it's fall weather either. It's 88 degrees and humid here today.

Back-2-back 76's this weekend!  Shot the same scores today on front/back as I did yesterday... EVEN/+4... 76.  I think I have shot EVEN on the front 9 maybe a total of 5 times in 7 years.

I got to EVEN a little differently today.  Started with a double on #1... don't ask!, then bogeyed #5.  I birdied #7, 8, and 9... all were 8-foot putts.  I have NEVER had 3 birdies in a row... ever!

Owen and I played Orchard Valley in Aurora yesterday with our friends Paul and Chris.  First time at that course for any of us.  Tons of rain Friday and early Saturday letting up roughly half an hour before tee time at 1.  Pretty quickly got hot and humid.  Strict cart path only due to the rain.  Probably should have stayed home but we were excited to try somewhere new.

Nice course; would love to go back and play under better circumstances.  Lots of water to deal with and overall pretty tight everywhere.  On the front nine I shot 53, Paul 55, Owen 51, and Chris 75.  By about the sixth or seventh hole, Chris was done.  He golfs rarely and it seemed like every shot went to the opposite side from the cart path.  We were all pretty off ...I don't think any of us hit a par 3 GIR all day.

On the back nine we decided to 2v2 scramble which lit a fire in Owen.  Aside from two nice putts from Chris, Owen beat Paul and I singlehandedly by several strokes.  His highlight of the day was bending a 3 wood approach shot from behind a tree 200 yards to the apron just shy of the green.  Wild shot.

Things really clicked with my swing today.   12 Fairways and 16 greens (one was about 3 feet off and the other was due to a penalty off the tee).   Putting was my achilles heel as I had 39 putts (3 3 putts)    39/37:76

Always seems to work that way, doesn't it? One thing goes really well and then something else doesn't cooperate. So maddening.

Very nice round.
