... I am sure I will get plenty of sympathy for this, but todays round started with NO sun, 10 mph winds, only 62* and Oh yea  RAIN!?!? Thankfully it only lasted 5 holes as all of us were going to quit after 9. "Warmed" up to 65* and by the back 9 my grips were finally dry. 70* and sunny Friday but mid to low 60's next week and that is  🥶  for Phoenix so here is where I am expecting some sympathy from those of you up north. 🤥

How about exchanging sympathies? Our Nov weather in GA is very spotty and 50s-60s.  Played nine 2 days ago, 15-20 mph gusty winds.  Just opened 2 weeks ago from overseeding and CPO.  Uncharacteristically struggled with the driver (short mishits) but did hit the fairways.  Between very long uncut fairway grass and LOTS of leaves, we spent frustrating amount of time trying to find our balls in the fairways. Shot 44.  Played a different course yesterday (not over seeded), driver getting better, very gusty and shot 42 but could have been much better. 

Still bummed about my cancelled trip - should be playing Verrado today, but instead waiting for more wind and rain from Nicole.

In New Zealand that's a normal winter for us so no sympathy but alittle empathy lol....

Back went out again, but I’ve concluded it’s my kidney cyst- long story- but anyways- it fired off on the 9th tee to where I had to actually pick up and go home- extremely painful- makes me mad because I was -1 and had just hit back to back 275 yd drives with the TSr… now I’m back on the couch taking heavy duty Tylenol…

gotta be tough to get old….

Yeah I know all about “old” at 72 because my body just won’t do what I want, and that’s bloody frustrating as right now I’m sitting in my recliner with muscle spasms in my left hip. Which model TSr you using?

Yup CPO this morning.  Lucky to even get out after Nicole dumped about 4” of rain yesterday.  
Bacon Boyz decided after a couple holes that 6 was enough.  Too bad I had to that point 5 pars and an extremely ugly double where a ProV1x decided on drowning over staying with me.  
I haven’t been posting on Play lately as with new driver, fareway woods and irons I’m in total experimental mode.  Irons are getting OK, 7 wood is great, Driver is still a bit of a mystery, still playing around with loft but it’s now a slight fade.  I’m OK with that.

Breakfast was great!!!

Was the ProV1x Yellow???  🤣🤣🤣

We don’t stop playing the game because we get old; we get old because we stop playing the game.”

Tomorrow I play a Stableford event, Tuesday it’s a quota game, then I wrap my year up next Saturday with our Member-Member Tournament. The following Monday I head up to Long Island, and won’t be back down until after Christmas.

It seems like I’m slipping into one of my funks lately. There isn’t one particular part of the game where I’m struggling, it’s more a lack of focus leading to making bad errors either in judgement or execution. i honestly don’t feel like I’m playing poorly, but my scoring has been horrible, and that’s infuriating.
It feels like this trip north is coming at the right time. I need a break from golf right now. I usually take the clubs up with me, in hopes of squeezing in a couple of rounds with my nephews and friends up there, but right now I think I’ll leave them down here this time,

Veterans Day golf has become a tradition at a favorite family owned course south of me, they don't charge Vets for a cart on this day and if I walk it they usually just waive the greens fee.  Today Nicole's northern bands arrived on the way to the course. Took this video on the ride to the course, been using this windshield treatment for 40 years, problem is the heavier the rain the easier it is to forget it is raining and have to remember I'm going to get wet if I get out without an umbrella ready. 👇

I do enjoy playing golf in rain, don't know what it is but more than any other conditions my game comes together better than other times.  46 and 44 for one more than my best round ever (and handicap went down a point when the round saved).  This one is going for my Week 7 Tour entry, too good to pass up. 

Only 2 others on the course before me and they said I was their last player on the course for the year.  Presented with a certificate for golf next year so essentially gave me back my green fee to use again after the no-outdoor-golf months are past.  The improvements this year with new footbridges improving access across their many creeks, places where brush used to be now resembling idyllic gardens,  better cart paths and terraced tee boxes, indeed I will be back next year and not just to use their gift as more than ever it is a peaceful place I golf to find.
