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.

Played a quick 9 yesterday evening with some buddies (beautiful 79 degree Wisconsin summer day) but shot a 55. I'm a high handicapper still working on getting consistent. Had a great impromptu range session last Saturday with my 5 year old who wanted to go hit some golf balls after his First Tee program finished up last week, unfortunately the ball striking from that session didn't carry over. Hit some great shots off the tee throughout the round but struggled with my 2nd/3rd (on par 5s) shots. Didn't card higher than a 7 on any hole, but a double and triple on the par 3s really put me in a tight spot. Going to focus more on my swing tempo next week when we play again and not get in a hurry from the top of my backswing.

Tuesday Exec 9 at the course in back of our house.  It’s been shut down for 3 months to add a cart path due to excessive water during rain season on the Par 4’s.  
Tees boxes were Ok but greens bumpy. The holes looked like they were cut with a Skill Saw with a dull blade.  
I’m still keeping it simple playing with shots/holes 100/125 max. Everything seems to be coming back slowly which is good, no knee pain at all. 

the "skill saw with a dull blade" made me burst out laughing in the office. All I could think of was the old high school shop saws that were never sharp!

You could of played with a broom and a shovel and still shot that 38!  I saw how solid your game is this weekend😁

Right on!  My in-laws have a cabin in Rome, WI and I typically play the Lake Arrowhead courses a few times a year. Heading up there next weekend as a matter of fact. Lived in Stevens Point when I graduated from college as well and got to play the Country Club there as my friend was the head pro and got to play Sentry World right before moving to Reedsburg.

Off to a slow start today.   3 putted the first hole for a bogey, then bogeyed #2 (although to be fair, this hole I am happy with a bogey as it's one that I can't reach in two normally), then on the par 5 #3, I toe jammed the driver OB and made a double.  My 8 iron off the tee on the par 3 was a pull hook that nearly found the pond, but ended up pin high in the grass area between the rocks around the pond and the green.  By the time the fourth player teed off, the rains began.....and rain it did!  For the next 20 minutes we took cover from the downpour beneath the trees, as much as that did.  It rained hard and fast, leaving standing water on the greens and rivers running through the fairways.  When it subsided, we headed for the clubhouse, knowing that the course was going to be unplayable for the immediate future.  When I got home, I noted the rain gauge on my porch showed 0.8 inches in the 30 minutes or so of rain.  Another friend that lives on the other side of the course than I (closer to where we were waiting for the rain to stop) said his gauge read 1.4 inches.  The good news is that after being +4 after 3 holes, I didn't finish playing.  Hopefully, I would have righted the ship, but then again....maybe not!
