87 (43/44). Worst round since November of 2020. Just horrible. 9 bogeys, FOUR doubles, three 3-putts. So frustrating.

Long overdue to post this one, but got out for a round while we were up in NH and it was a milestone round for me!  I woke up to a beautiful sunrise on the lake with expectations of a brisk, but sunny fall morning round.

No, the milestone was not because of my own play... I did shoot an even 35, but that wasn't the highlight of the day.  It was the first round for my middle child and I was excited to see him play!  My oldest son also played from his first official set of tees (they had purple junior tees ranging from 200 to about 250 yards for par 4 and par 5 holes).

We all played with my Father-in-law and it was *brisk* 40* and quite foggy when we teed off. The sun finally poked out as we were heading off the course and heading back to the lake house.

It's certainly one of those memories I'll cherish forever!

Owen and I played the back nine at River Heights today.  They're starting to punch the greens and were working somewhere on the front so we took off on the back.  

Owen started rough and put four balls in the water on the first three holes and stopped keeping score.  He came around and finished pretty strong, though.

Me, on the other hand, I started well by going par par before getting a double bogey with some awful putting.  

Then I had three straight one-putt bogeys that were waylaid by wonky approach shots.  Followed that with a three putt double bogey on a par five that taught me the importance of changing my setup when I grip down on a club.

The final two holes were already aerated so I'm not too down on them, but I had birdie looks on both and walked away with bogeys.  All in all, I shot a really good (+9) 45, so I can't complain one bit!

So I learned something today, and it ended the brief competition I wanted to have between the PXG XP irons and the Cleveland Halos.

The Halos are like cheating. If I’m a little off with the PXGs I pay the price for it. With the Halos, unless I put a horrible move on the ball, I’m getting a decent or better result.

Decision made. The Halos win by an early round KO. The XPs are great irons, but I know I’ll never want to switch them into my gamer bag over the Clevelands. 
It was wort scratching the itch though thanks to the 100% money back guarantee PXG’s running right now.

Played a practice round yesterday and worked on grip, form, aim, etc… sometimes ya just gotta get back to basics to keep yourself sharp.

Exactly where I am with my game as I head into the "fall" season.  Back to basics, ready myself for the '23 season 🙂

Shot like crap at out member guest event, like I always do-

maybe I need to start entering every thing that ever happens so I can get used to it- problem with golf is that a little tightness from self imposed pressure doesn’t let me swing fully relaxed. And one iota of a miss doesn’t translate well- 

it wasn’t horrible, but it’s frustrating when my normal daily rounds with my buddies is so easy, but anytime it becomes important, I freeze up a bit…

grrrr

Hang in there Sluggo! That competitiveness gets best of us, get to where you're afraid to miss. Shrug it off & go to next hole & smile at your buddies! What a crazy game, but GREAT!

This is one of my two types of golf I have realized I play, this one the social golf type, the other the focused golf type.  Focused golf is in the zone where thoughts are mostly calm and about playing golf so swing is easy and relaxed and scores are lower per hole than otherwise.  Otherwise is social golf that can be an outing with friends, a tournament or other planned event (like the MGS Mid-Atlantic region at Queens Harbor) where thoughts are more involved with those I am with and the goings on that wouldn't if they were not there and scores reflect the less-than-focused golf that happens when being socially involved.

This is normal and comparing results is pointless so higher numbers on a tournament scorecard are expected 😕

Well that makes me feel better, but it’s still frustrating as I spent decades playing in fairly high level softball, and pressure there didn’t bother me. But maybe because that’s all there was… but anyways, you’re right…

Recently broke 90 for my first time a few months ago. Been playing a ton better after reading The Four Foundations of Golf... Last night went out with my buddy after work and was having the best 9 of my life and totally collapsed on 9 lol... I have to share this disaster. Cannot do anything but laugh at it! Topped my tee shot... 7I was great then dunked my PW just to the left of the green in the drink...
