How'd you play?

Recommended Posts

Played Friday and Sunday at Windmill.

Friday I shot a 46/44 90. It was pretty ordinary, driver was giving me the shits.

Sunday was better 45/40 85. Driver was a lot better with only 3 "bad" drives that left me out of position but still have a shot available.

Hoping to get out for one last one on Thursday morning.

Weather here in southeast Michigan this past Saturday had temperatures approaching 70 degrees, but steady winds of 25 - 30 mph,  and gusts up to 50 mph.

Headed to Stony Creek Metro Park and played 18 with a pair of friends. One similar in age to me, the other quite a lot younger. Played reasonably well tee to green, with more than 1/2 of the greens covered in leaves by the blowing winds, making putting an adventure to say the least. Shot 40 on the front with a birdie on the 2nd hole, par 4 376 yards after hitting a wind assisted drive and only having 80 yards left to the green. 🤪 Had a 44 on the back with a "lost ball" in the fairway penalty taken due to too many leaves to move to look for it.

We all agreed to keep playing here as long as the course is open, although the temps. here are supposed to only be in the upper 30's this next weekend.

I have Friday off work, temps. should still be upper 50's for the high so I am hoping to get out at least that day.

Not many deer or cranes walking around this visit, but I did mange to see this turkey behind the green on one of the par 3's.

Got out on Saturday at Genesee Valley GC with son Patrick for a 9 hole round on the front 9 of the North Course and hit a 49 in strong gusty winds with leaves blowing around like drifting snow.  And this video starts just after all those leaves it seemed were flowing past the ball.

Only lost 4 balls but found 3 so never ran out of one to play.  The greens were excellent and Putts per Hole was 1.6, not bad with blowing leaves sometimes changing conditions during the putt.  Far better conditions for putting than I have been playing for the past couple weeks on my home course.

This is what the 4th green looked like at the moment, blowing winds moved the leaves constantly hiding and revealing golf balls haphazardly...

Saturday was probably the last round of the year at Sleepy Hollow (Stanley Thompson, top 10 muni in US) with @MaxEntropy. I couldn't do too much right with wild drives, chunked irons, and 3-putts aplenty for a +9 44 on the front, one of my worst 9-holes of the year. However, I figured something out on the back for a 38 with my lone birdie. so overall an 82 isn't the worst score ever. The 40mph+ winds probably didn't help either. But I really drove the ball poorly for almost the entire day. Finally hit decent drives on #10, 13, 16, and 18. 

Didn't drive the ball particularly well and playing one of the harder courses in the area in gusts around 40 mph was interesting. Best part of my game was irons, for a change, but tricky greens with lots of slope meant a couple 3-putt bogies on par 3's. Started the front with 3 straight doubles (after what ended up being the best drive of the day on 1 🤦‍♂️). #9 was dead into the wind. The card says 357. As I recall, Arccos claimed it was playing more like 440, which makes sense given that I hit driver and 4h and was still not quite pin high.

Saturday's round was cold, windy, and misty.  Only one other die-hard in our group showed up to brave the weather and he quit after 9 holes.  I believe we were the only dedicated a.k.a. idiots on the course.  On the back 9 I played two balls so didn't keep a total score.  On Sunday, much nicer weather and I turned in a 76.  My fairways hit and greens in regulation were not great, but I chipped and putted very well.  Two birdies, one double bogey, 4 bogeys, and 11 pars.

Got out for the last round of the year, indeed the course is closed as of today. So to that end I had the best driving day of the year. Only one really bad swing where I got out of sequence, otherwise a number of fairways hit with straight ball flight.

Started off with a tough bogey hitting my approach and plugging it into a bunker. Made a few pars in a row before knocking down a wedge from 105 for a birdie. Then came my worst drive lost right resulting in a double. Also made a bit of a mess on the 8th going bunker to bunker but saved the bogey (if that is a thing). Started to find a groove though on the 11th. From there it was pretty much driver, iron/wedge, 2 putt par from 12 to 16. Just the best kind of boring golf. Finally hit a bad second shot on 17 led to bogey. Then caught a flier on 18 but got up and down for a 5 over 76.

Closing the round and the year it have been a great year. Took my handicap down a couple shots to 5.5, and of course I feel there is room for improvement to get more consistent off the especially. It really was pretty easy today playing from well struck tee shots. Here is hoping that I will somehow keep this driver swing over the winter months. Only time will tell.

I think my drive went 210, and I hit a 7i still missed the green.

I played Saturday which was my first time to really test the swing changes I've been trying to make. The range and back nine were both closed from rain, so I just played the front 9 and called it a day. Not surprisingly my very first swing didn't go well - topped my 4-iron - so I dropped another ball since I hadn't really warmed up or anything. They say the second guy is always better, and man did he ever come through this time! 253-yards to the middle of the fairway with 4-iron!!! To be fair, the tee shot on #1 at this course plays downhill and I did have some assistance from the wind, but I've never done that before on this course and I pretty much always use 4-iron off the tee. From there I'd go on to birdie the first and everything else was bogey or par to finish at 40 (+4).

Ball striking was the best I've experienced almost all year. I had a few shots that were a touch thin, but nothing wild and only one drive that strayed from the fairway enough to be concerning. I hit 57% of fairways (about average for me currently) and 67% greens in regulation (around twice as many GIR's as what I averaged for two-thirds of the year). The most concerning stat for me was 3-putts. I had three of those and only one of them would have been "reasonable". All were the result of being too aggressive on the first putt. However, my proximity to the hole needs some improvement and would have been a real difference maker if I had selected the right club on a few shots. I think as I gain more control with the irons, this will be a real game changer for me because I'm not a bad putter by any stretch. Even with some long putts, including those where I was too aggressive on speed, I was constantly sniffing the hole. In fact, one of those 3-putts was the result of two lip-outs from ~10ft.

Anyway, I'd call Saturday a success, but I'm itching to get out and play a full 18 under "normal" conditions. Hopefully, I can make that happen before the cold settles in over Texas.

I was going to play today, and so sad and disappointed that I didn’t play.  Got up at 4am Sunday to get a message from American Airlines they cancelled our flight, and had no way to get me there before late today, so they cancelled my reservation.  Probably was an alternate route, but I was more or less in shock and barely able to think.  

The reservationists was great and gave us flight credits, but then when I asked her to increase the value ( to today’s cost) she had to call another office for approval (a guy in Mexico). He told me that my ticket was issued in 2020 so we weren’t  entitled to a flight credit.  Huh? Treated me like a POS and cancelled our flight credit.  I said yes, issued in 2020 for a trip to Ireland and cancelled by AA due to Covid, then current ticket issued Dec 30 2021 which is printed on the ticket, and again cancelled by AA.  I think the reservationists was listening, and after hanging up, the credit reappeared a few minutes later. 

Was going to play here, then Verrado later in the week.

Stories like this have convinced me that I will drive anytime I can reasonably do so. Sorry to hear about your bad experience. Unfortunately, airlines have figured out they can treat people like garbage and get away with it since air travel is often a necessary evil. 😞

... Well it is the ole tale of two scenarios. One good. One bad. The bad is I played 2 rounds with zero birdies. I can't remember the last time I played one round without a birdie let alone two. The good news is no bogies in the last 2 rounds either. 36 straight pars. Strange couple of days.

I played 9 holes today, had 4 pars and a birdie, but shot 40 because of 3 bogeys and a double bogey on a hole where I hit my tee shot into a thorny bush (similar to gorse in the UK) and had to take an unplayable lie, and was unable to reach the green in three after taking my penalty drop.

It seems that every round of golf that I have played since recovering from cancer surgery on my leg (surgery was 8 weeks ago today and the recovery period was close to 6 weeks) has included at least three “blow up” holes. I’m talking about triple to quintuple bogeys (scores of 7 to 9 on par 4 and par 5 holes). The rest of each round has generally consisted of lots of pars, a birdie here and there, and maybe 2 to 4 bogeys per 18 holes.My scores over the last 2.5 weeks (four 18-hole and two 9-hole rounds) have ranged from 87 to 95 for 18 holes with a 43 and a 40 for 9 holes.

Surgery on your body is tough, mind as over 3 years ago and I'm just starting to feel good. Hang in there and you will lose those big scores, no rhyme nor reason it happens just your body dealing with it...
