I wanted to slit my wrists yesterday, shot probably triple digits but stopped keeping score because it was bringing me down.

Beautiful Monday Morning for Exec golf with 2 Par 4’s.  Shot a smooth +1 with a Birdie and unfortunately 2 Bogies.  
Everything working especially the hybrids.  
Good feeling to hit ball well.

Great round Matt and way to come back after a bad round. I'm assuming the new Mizuno's are still working well for you. 

It's amazing how one's game can be so bad one day and great the next. You gotta love golf.

It's absolutely amazing, I remember a time when someone would take over a year to recover from a knee surgery. 

Yup, I asked the doc if they ever had tours of the hospital surgery departments so we could see the robots and yes they do!  I’m on the list for next tour.

Well the golf gods giveth and the golf gods taketh away...

..no low 40s 9 hole round for this dude this afternoon...

..tho I did scratch out a Par on #1 .. for the first one on that hole this season .. with a nice up & down from about 60 yds out; thought i was gonna repeat that trick on #2 (kinda been my nemesis hole) after lobbing it close but then walked off with a 3 putt double 🤦‍♂️ (joked to my wife, "dammm there goes my attack on the course record"); made par again on #3 with an almost hole-out from about 35 yds;

..then three holes of some messy golf where I worked hard to save double each time;

..then an 8 on a short par 3 that I've birdied once and parred several times .. suddenly I literally could not hit a wedge straight 🤷‍♂️ .. after duffing the tee shot it took me 3 separate attempts just to reach the apron in front of the green;

..then a bright spot on the Par 5 #8 with a really solid tee shot with driver .. long (for me) and straight .. skip ahead to .. juuuust missed the first putt (just a tad too much energy plus a hair too much break) for _almost_ making my first par on that hole;

..and finished up on #9 with another wedge meltdown disaster after getting myself into a good position short of the green in two shots (terrible tee shot + great recovery shot) for a chance at par or potential bogey but turned that into a triple...

Been reading about other guys' up vs down days so at least I know I'm in some very good company!!

1st hole, 3rd shot landed by the green, chipped on and one-putt for bogie.  5th hole, 3rd shot landed right of the green, chipped on and one-putt for par.

Those are a couple of really nice putts.  Great visual with the dew on the greens, being able to see the ball trail.

Sigh.   42/43 85.  I feel weird that I can be disappointed in an 85.  It was just one of those days where I feel like the score was not reflective of my play.   I was great off the tee 10/14 Fairways and the 4 misses were just a little off.  My approach game was serviceable.  6/18 GIR with a lot of the rest being in Texas Wedge range.  My short game was pretty good, I had a reasonable par putt opportunity on all but 1 hole.  I also putted better than 35 putts would suggest.  My guess is that if I'd have been 3" (combined) towards the center of the cup this 85 would be in the 77 range.  I just wasn't missing my much -- brushed edge with a six inch tap in left.  Nothing would drop.   It was kind of that way with everything.  Good approach shots, good chips, but just not quite good enough.

The high point today was definitely my new Driver.  I want to temper my expectations, but I think I'm in love with it.  The distance drop off I was a little worried about didn't exist.  It was every bit as long as my M2, and because of the forgiveness, much longer on average.  No banana slices or super spinny pull hooks.  Just straight with some baby fades and draws.  The head seems super forgiving.  There were a couple strikes that I know were a little on the heel or high on the face and it still just poked out straight down the fairway.  The shaft is pretty much what I hoped for, it delivers the face to the ball reasonably close to square.    The only time it got out of sorts is when my transition got too aggressive and the only thing that happened was just a benign short straight pull.  Just down the left side in the rough.  If I'd put that kind of swing on my M2 I'd either be hitting from within the trees or re-teeing from pull hooking into oblivion.   It's still honeymoon period but it's hard to see myself trading this in for a while.  Generally when I get along with a club this well it tends to stay in the bag for a very long time.

It was overcast and threatening to rain so Owen didn't want to play today.  I decided to chance it and walk 18 at River Heights and also played the forward tees on a whim.  

It was different.  Had to lay up on a few holes to avoid running out of fairway and two holes were actually more difficult due to narrower launch points.

I started out hot with three pars (a first) and was +1 through five before I got overly aggressive and hooked a drive OB for a double.  Recovered well and made the turn with a PB 39.

Fell off the pace on the back as my putting really fell apart to the tune of four 3 putts.  Still hung on enough to shoot 44 on the back for a PB (+11) 83.  No birdies but 11 pars.  We have a scramble outing on Saturday and I really feel confident heading in.

I've had this swing thought the last couple weeks: "smooth". I think that really turned into "slow" and "trying to steer the ball" so there have been a few struggles, even though I have scored pretty well (thanks to short game). After the second hole last night, it occurred to me to swing my swing and let it rip. Strangely, whatever I WAS doing was causing back pain, but when I started swinging more aggressively, it resulted in less pressure on my lower back, so it must have been a mechanical mess. The results were MUCH better, both off the tee and on approach. I ended up with 3 bogies and 6 pars. Short game was again very good, even though the greens have been punched since last Tuesday (the ball still rolled pretty well). I had a hard-pan bounce aided 300 yard drive and a downwind 272 yard drive that got slowed by a tree. I hope this is a good sign, but there is not a lot of golf time left - snow is starting to show up in the long-term forecast. 😞
