Pulled it out of the bag last week.   Was using my Seemore which was pretty good except on those 3 putts;  they were 40, 46, and 89 foot putts.   

Those are some seriously long putts. First time I read your post I thought you made those 3 putts and 3 putted from shorter range. 🤦‍♂️

Do those greens have a lot of slope on them?

I played 9 holes with the kids on Sunday, was hitting the ball well, just slightly spraying the tee shots, missed a lot of fairways by a meter or 2. Only had 14 puts on the 9 holes for a solid 39, considering I made a double drop on the 3rd hole stroke 1.  I just cannot get my head around that tee shot. If you cannot hit a controlled fade the fairway is not in play from the tee. And I cannot hit a fade on demand with my driver....or 3 wood.... or pretty much any club in my bag. I can hit it straight, but that still ends up in the bush if I miss the Tamboti Tree 30m infront of the teebox and hit it far enough to reach the 475 yard par 4 in 2. 

It is strange that a Tamboti tree or any part of it in a camp or cooking fire will terribly upset ones stomach, just the thought of that one on the golf course upsets me....

Played our club quarter final of the fourball better ball last night and got humped 5&4. It was a pretty level game in terms of strokes with me and one of my opponents getting getting 4 and the other 2 guys off scratch. 

We could have been 3 up after 3 after a lip out, one left hanging over the lip and a miss from 4 feet but that was the last chances we had. Lost 4 to birdie, 5 to birdie, 6 to par, 7 halved in net birdies, lost 8 to birdie, 4 down at the turn. Started being a bit more aggressive, made birdies on 12 and 13 to halve them to eventually falter at 14. they missed their birdie at 14, meaning I had to chip in from about 30 feet birdie or my partner putt from 4 feet both missed. 

The high handicapper (8) played really well, supported by his partner. On the par 5s he was 2 under and driving the ball long and straight., ditto for his 3w.

Onto next year.

... As I said Stu may give her a run for her money but still lose even at 7200+. And at the women's normal yardage they would just get owned. I saw a video that proved your post, although it was only one player it was still interesting. I can't remember the index of the challenger but wanna say a 2 that hit it 300+ yds? Challenged an Asian Tour lady that was a lower ranked player on a 7300 yd course. Lots of great golf from the lady and as you said a killer short game but the thing that stood out the most for me was she just played her own game. Many par 4's were unreachable for her but instead of swinging harder, she stuck to her own game hitting driver then fw or hybrid short of the green, chipping/pitching close and making par. If it was reachable with a few she was on and made some birdies while the guy missed the green with an iron. Some of those longer holes the guy tried for a little more distance to use his advantage and it worked some and backfired others. 

... In the end great play in all aspects of the game, something any tour pro can do including Symetra, beats distance every time. He!! I just watched the Jr Girls Am and in the semi finals a 14yr old advanced with 9 birdies in 13 holes on a difficult course! 

Aw heck a high school girls player could beat me now. I cant break an egg. Yep I have readapted my game to just that hitting the 3 wood and 7 wood into some greens and hoping. My chipping is still pretty spot on but my putting has gotten streaky. Back in my heydays i did not hit a lot of greens with my irons but relied on my short game and putting. Naaw even in my heyday I knew who to take on and who to run from. LOL would have never dreamed of taking on Beth Daniel or Nancy Lopez.

Royal New Kent in providence forge, Va; it has some big greens.   It is links style.  
 

here is the green I was on

and here is one that is probably the biggest.  You’d have to hit a really bad approach to be hitting the 100+‘ putt but I am sure someone has done it   They generally put the pin right side forcing you to deal with the deep bunkers.

Oh man I would love it---- One of those courses I would try to play links style would not care if I shot 110 or not. Oh yes blade 1 iron would be in the bag--- I can still hit a chest high screamer cut with one but only 180 yards or so now.

... Been really struggling with my game since Bronchitis hit me almost 6 weeks ago. Started steroids Saturday and they really helped but I am going in for a chest x ray and hopefully I won't need antibiotics. Anyway the steroids took away the worst symptoms and I kinda felt close to normal today and shot 72 on aerated greens so it could have been lower I think. Hit the ball as well as I have in months and my swing felt effortless, again something I haven't felt recently. I think I have made the decision to sell my Stealth because the Sim Max is virtually identical when hit well and when hit poorly there isn't a lot of difference. But I will need a few more rounds to verify since I am feeling and swinging better again.

Man did not know you were sick--- You shooting 72 when you are sick you are hell when you are well. But then I have always been told beware of the injured or sick golfer.

I ended up playing 27 yesterday. Played my dew sweeper round with my front line stuff to experiment some. Took the M-6 back out to try to get more out of it. Naah no control so the beloved Honma is still in. It is a little shorter but I can control it better than any driver I ever owned. I have been putting terrible lately switching up putters. I actually threatned to drag out my B-90 Ping broomhandle back out and I did. Now me and Rusty Scotty have always had a thing going I love that rusty ugly thing. I did some mods on it basically putting it back stock shaft and length. In fact put the original rusty shaft back in it along with the Lamkin standard 3 GL grip I first had on it which is the same as the red stock Scotty grips. I went back to my old putting stance too. Now days I think I can play like that but can not do long practice sessions. I will have to rely on feel and instinct there. At least I scared the hole with it. I did use the broomstick some with limited success. Decided to go with Scotty. My other experiment turned out fine too. Saturday I had cracked the shaft in the 3 wood and did not have a NVS 65 R around. Did one of my old tricks. Pulled a stock TM Reax shaft 55g soft tip out of an old R-5 driver. Tipped it .25 put it in and butt trimmed to .50 over 3 wood length I surprise myself sometimes. That thing is a cannon. Picked up about 7 yards with it and no it was not me because I hit all my other clubs the same. I had went out at 06:45 and even practicing I was done by 8:00 or so. Sat back had me a Pedelyte and a banana. Hmm I feel pretty good. Only a hand full of the Mens group showed up so I hit the back side after putting the broomstick and M-6 in the car. Got myself in the right frame of mind to really try and play my game. Played my game and shot even par doing stuff my way. The front side was wide open so I kept on. The front side is harder but I shot even par with 2 birdies. Even par for me best so far since the accident. I feel that my putting was not exactly spot on but maybe coming back. I had not played that much golf in one session since the accident. I felt that with the practice 9 I played the equlivent of 36. I was ok last night and this morning no pain or stiffness whatsoever.

I am also stoked I was asked by the owners of my course to be a Royal Member I was already a Red Member. The Royal Membership is limited and you can only get in if someone passes or sells their membership. It also has to be approved by the owners. You pay a set fee and it is good for 5 years and the option to renew at a discounted rate. Does not cost me anything anytime to play and cart fees are included I can play as much as I want and unlimited range balls free too. Plus events are half cost for example the Saturday Shootout non members it is $45 Red Card Members it is $35 now with me being a Royal Member it is $20. It was a no brainer. I was stoked to even be asked out of the blue by both owners. Yeah I can basically play any time I want plus if needed I have priority tee times too. My wife loves it as she says it gets me off my butt and out of the house.

Golf league round last night was a rough go. Was playing poorly and we score stableford, so the last two holes I decided to try my hand at a long drive swing haha. Both drives ended up 50+ yards left. Basically no green to work with, I stuffed each approach from 155 and 160 to 15 feet and made both putts for birdie. Golf is a crazy game

Finally feeling well enough to get back out and play a full 18. Still getting a little winded from walking, but the physical exhaustion seems to be gone.

41/39 -> 80 / 79 adjusted. Drove the ball pretty well, ending up with a couple 275 yarders on very wet and long fairways and an absolute bomb of 300 yards. Irons and wedges were OK, putting was abysmal with 37 putts.

Trying to get from upper 70s-80 range to mid-lower 70s seems so far away at this point. For those of you who do that routinely, I'm so impressed. I only hit two really bad shots today and it cost me like four strokes. Oh well, keep grinding and hopefully my putting will come around again. I missed three putts inside of five feet today and that can't happen either.

Dang!  Should have hollered.  It's been a long time since I played Bear Mountain Ranch and even longer since I played the muni (played a pro-am when I was an 18 hcp... max hcp for the tournament was 16.  Needless to say...  

My wife went to Spokane this morning with two groups of ladies to play Hangman Valley (Oops! I mean Latah Creek for those sensitive types 😂) this afternoon, then playing The Creek at Qualchan in the morning before coming home.  I wasn't invited.

I thought I would walk 9 holes this morning; made it through 6 before I had to quit due to slow play; very hot and humid after the irrigation all night and I needed a shower before my appointment.

I would have loved that but it was the same week as the PNW play along.. so I thought you and others might be a little busy.. 

I have not Played Latah Creek (Hangman), I have played The Creek at Qualchan, what a great course.. 4 of us would take a trip each spring to play Coeur D' Alene and play 1 of the Spokane courses, since they used to be pretty cheap and always in great shape.. we played Coeur D' Alene and Circling Raven each a few times, and then The Creek at Qualchan, Esmerelda, and Indian Canyon. Our last trip we got in Gamble Sands, Bear Mountian Ranch, Highlander, and Desert Canyon.. Since then My FIL, and His best friend have both lost significant eyesight and being in their 70's and 80's have almost all but given up golf.. My FIL, still has his certificate for Paring the Floating green hanging in his workshop..

Played in a 36 hole qualifier for the Cleveland Amateur over the weekend. I had 85s both days, so I did not qualify. The first day everything was just kind of off a little bit. The second day I was off to a really good start as I was only +4 through 12, then imploded with +9 on the last 6 as my iron play went to hell and I missed some short putts. It wasn't that bad of a weekend, but I felt like I could have been 5-7 shots better over the weekend and I still finished in the middle of the pack. 85s aren't bad scores given my handicap and the tees/slope of the course. There's a stableford tourney at this same course towards the end of August that I'm going to play in as well.

I sucked. Puked out a 90. No driver until the back and irons were hell all day but I was putting like a bastard. All 1 and 2 putts for 30.

A good day of putting can make a mediocre round feel pretty good.

Played in a 36 hole qualifier for the Cleveland Amateur over the weekend. I had 85s both days, so I did not qualify. The first day everything was just kind of off a little bit. The second day I was off to a really good start as I was only +4 through 12, then imploded with +9 on the last 6 as my iron play went to hell and I missed some short putts. It wasn't that bad of a weekend, but I felt like I could have been 5-7 shots better over the weekend and I still finished in the middle of the pack. 85s aren't bad scores given my handicap and the tees/slope of the course. There's a stableford tourney at this same course towards the end of August that I'm going to play in as well.

I like it man at least you tried. I will give you an A for effort and never give up keep on trying

... I vividly remember my first Chicago Am and the combination of anticipation mixed with over bearing dread. Guys on the first tee hitting it much longer than me and in the fairway. But many fell apart when they needed their short game and it was a great learning experience. But as Stu said, congrats for putting yourself out there. Nothing quite like seriously competitive tournament golf and the adrenaline of seeing how you match up with other golfers.

First time out this morning after my knee replacement 7 weeks ago,  great to be out again.  Warm morning, light breeze and humidity wasn’t bad.  Just did the “chip & putt” thing and that was about all I could and want to do.  Had to get used to walking up and down a few minor hills, downhill not so good.  
I will definitely need a bit of practice as I stunk chipping, putter was OK. 
Have a 7:00am Tee Time with Bacon Boyz Friday!!

Somewhere about 7-8 weeks after my second knee replacement, my 2nd outing was a "Guys and Dolls" scramble and I had my first and only hole in one. So...you got that to look forward to!  😄
