Back from a two week vacation hiatus. Got to play 3 rounds or so, one 18 hole, then 12, then another 18. Overall was ok, but nothing great. Driver was a real struggle but starting to come back around, and irons have been meh. shot about 80 each full 18. Hoping to get back out and get the game back on track. Was bound to hit a rough patch at some point should get myself back in form soon.

It’s really just small stuff. It’s not consistent. Their are some really good holes and good shots. It seems that it’s either a great shot or terrible and in the worst spot to miss in

Sounds like we need to get out and work on course management

Had my 3rd consecutive good round. +2 today, with a stupid bogie on 18 (par 5) from 10’ off in 2 after a crushed drive and 3-wood. 
putted instead of a chip and caught it heavy- then blasted the next one 15’ by the cup- dumb…

butttt, the new driving move has been working well for about 3 weeks, and I tell ya what, consistently shorter second shots make for lower scores

Got out for a quick 9 on Saturday afternoon, was struggling with dispersion off the tee (too many penalties and balls out of position) but managed to get 2 birdies to salvage the round and score a 43. Funniest one was probably hole 4, where I topped my driver off the tee and it rolled out 150 yards, and somehow managed to go 3w > Gap wedge to 1 feet for an easy bird.

I got paired up with another twosome, a guy and his 15-year-old son. I feel very old saying this, but man, I wish I could swing as fast at that kid! He only hit driver once, and it was a 316-yard bomb right down the middle. If he can get his short game and putting figured out he'll be in a pretty good spot!

Had a fun tournament last Friday. Was a good time, met a few guys from one of my vendors we use for roof repairs.

great cause all the money went to the fisher house, we’ll worth the money.

4FFFFFC2-0068-4AD0-B3C9-46FBFB3FCC56.jpeg.6343edf2e6c308a247ab335a51e9c7bc.jpeg

course was decent and was 3 of us so we had a lot of extra shots, split them up nicely between the 3 of us.

tee game was meh, but was smoking the 3W off the deck and my irons were A+ again. Started draining putts on the back.

we went -8 with 3 yes read it correctly, 3 bogeys on the front (started on 2) woooooof

we joked around that we just needed to warm up.

this hole was great, my only decent drive of the day and I hit this monster draw 3 wood, hit the front of the green and bounced off pin high.

Nice start, and I know Overlook well. The second is a tough start with all the water. Lots of trees as well.

Three is a beast as well, but I am sure one of you got the drive in the fairway

After the 18 I went to the driving range to figure stuff out - 2 large baskets later I finally figured out what I was doing wrong. We're playing Plum Brook CC tomorrow so I have higher expectations! 

 

... Good for you! 109 is a summer temperature not a golf score. 😉  Looking forward to hearing about your round tomorrow!

Similar but I got an even higher score today. 53 on the front and 56 on the back - I'm embarrassed to admit it.  We had over 2- 3" of rain last night so to set the stage it was cart path only, the fairways didn't roll at all - I think I saw a wake as the ball landed and crept slowly forward and the greens were lighting fast (they double cut and rolled them for the women's championship later today). #14 where I got a Hole In One a week ago = a 6 today as I couldn't get the ball over the water. The next Par 3 over water - yup 2 balls in for another 6 🤦‍♂️. After the 18 I went to the driving range to figure stuff out - 2 large baskets later I finally figured out what I was doing wrong. We're playing Plum Brook CC tomorrow so I have higher expectations! 

You’ll bounce back from that one pretty quick. Nothing like a little range therapy to straighten things out.

We have the equivalent of the Bermuda Triangle or Twilight Zone at our course, let me try to describe it.

The 2nd and 16th run parallel to each other, the 2nd running south to north and the 16th north to south. The 2nd can be a card wrecker it is a narrow fairway that cambers left to right  with a steep bank of knee high grass and undergrowth on the right and a steep bank running off to the 16th fairway on the left. To compound this the prevailing wind is left to right. For most golfers who hit it left to right the drive is to aim for the left side of the fairway and look for a cut or wind to bring it back to the fairway. Too far left and you hit the bank on the left and the ball heads on the 16th fairway out of sight. 

This mysterious Twilight Zone resides on the 16th Fairway about 200yds off the 16th tee and 240 - 260 yds off the 2nd tee. Balls hit off the 2nd just disappear or they miraculously change manufacturer and number (normally changing from Pro V1 to Top Flite). Balls have been known to lie in the fairway for hours unclaimed by the discerning golfer, identified and left with a shrug. Normally these mysterious incidents happen when the mystical Sages of the club are playing the 16th. These old, weathered Sages usual travel around in 4s and come out between 9am to 1pm every weekday to do their ritual course worshipping.   They can normally seen scampering off into the distance after one of these incidents and if challenged they will impart some of their knowledge, abridge with some Scottish adjectives and nouns.

"I never took your ball, bleep off you bleep"

My Callaway turned into a Top Flite today at the 2nd

There are also know for their pearls of wisdom and 100% hindsight if you play with one of these Sages. No matter your age after you play a bad shot they can be heard saying

"Aye son, I don't think you want to do that"

 

Better day with driver and approach shots today, changed my setup and now hitting the ball a lot better and consistent. Putter setup was a bit iffy on the front 9 missing 3 from inside 4 feet but sorted this out on the back 9.

Played again today game is moving in the right direction 

image.png.c77218286ccf263cb144050055a2e436.png

Drivin still causing me problems but this was mainly due to me coming out of the shot. Remember my description of the 2nd, well cut it down the bank off the tee and made double. Picture below shows the 2nd with the Twilight Zone just above where I played my 3rd shot

image.png.860080467840f4e513b9d6c3e1c0e998.png 3rd again cut and though I had lost my ball right played, realised I was coming out the shot, hit a provisional and drove the green.

image.png.64bdf379b39252b18ebebf331c5f347f.png

4th still a bit concerned about cut so aimed a little to far left and ended up losing the ball. 3 over for the first 4 and 6 over for the remainder. Still tweaking my putting setup had a few good chances for birdie at 2, 10, 14 and 15 missed them all but did make a good one for bogey on 4 after the lost ball. 

Out again today making the most of the good weather then off into Edinburgh for dinner.

Played in the 9 hole golf league last night and I was real happy with a 38.  I had to go through the extra bags in the shop to pull a set together.  My normal gamers were in the car from this past weekend trip and I came home about 3 to find my kid had taken the car for the day as hers is getting worked on and was 2 hours away.  I was out of the info loop on this or I would have got my bag out of the car.

Off the tee I used a 15* version of the hybrid I normally play (18*) so that was familiar.  The fairways were running about 10 on the stimp due to the hot & dry weather so distance wasn't much of an issue!  😄  I used my old Wishon design Golfsmith Tour Cavity 4 - LW irons and the Ping Heppler Fetch putter.  After adjusting to the feel & yardage of the irons on the first two holes the biggest impact was distance control with the wedge game.  I noticed with the irons the ball flight was much higher, a little shorter and being more upright they wanted to go a bit to the left.  Re-calibrated my club selection and aimpoint and things improved for the last 7 holes.  The shots I lost were from flying the green with partial wedge's.  

It was fun to play a 9 with more 'feel' than usual with the irons.

I had 2 birdies and 2 bogeys for an even par 35 on my Tuesday night league last night. I've parred the front a handful of times over the years, but its the 1st time this year.

Got out for a quick morning 9 and had one of my best 9 hole scores ever. Shot an even par 36. Moved up from the tips today to have bit more fun and it worked indeed. Driver was much better and hitting the shorter shots into greens was great. I would love to say it was boring but I still missed a handful of greens but mostly just short so I could just run a pitching wedge up like a putt. Hoping to keep the momentum for my round on Saturday.
