Played Monday & Tuesday Exec nothing special there still fighting the PXG driver, can’t get a feel for it.

Wednesday played Big Boy but only 9 holes and it was slooowwww going.  Groups in front of us where horrible, dove carts at times back towards us then circling and not to mention playing wrong Tees.  The Ranger was pushing them but he was having a problem with a couple guys who we’re claiming that he was picking on Seniors……Oh Boy can’t make this up.

Anyway shot a 5+ for the 9 and did hit a couple of decent shots with the PXG 0211 driver at least as good as the Titleist TSI2 driver.  

Picking on Seniors indeed, shameless haha..

Friday Bacon Boyz 9.  Didn’t play particularly well actually none of us did but that’s OKAY.  It’s one of the times when you get all 4 guys that really get along, bust each other’s chops ruthlessly and to top it off played from the Tips just because we could!! 
it’s hard to play when you’re laughing that hard.

we all need days like that.  Of course the BB continued at breakfast, the diner let us put the tables together so we were able to do 8 and 8.

BTW I putt very well but that was only to save Bogey!!

Oh yeah those were the days, played Sunday's with Scottish English Irish and me Kiwi. Just a perfect group and the Scot was the Jokester extrovert, never had another 4 some like that ever. Magic and thanks for reminding me...

Shot a 45/41 86 at Bent Brook. Not a great round but have definitely been worse. Weather was wet and cool and it definitely affected ball flight and distance, so I probably played a little better. Short game was great, approaches were not generally speaking. Probably hit 5-6 shots fat, almost all of them with my 52* or 56* wedge, which makes it even worse. 
 

Had 1 birdie on a gettable par 5, made about a 20 foot downhill putt.

When I've not played for a few weeks I lose the wedges control first along with the driver, but the driver is ok since I started using a lady's shaft...

Monday Exec 9 getting comfortable with PXG 0211 driver.  Hit it well and down the middle on both Par 4’s.  One of the Par4’s is 375 which is a long way for my ole arse but just got there in 2, driver and 7 wood with 2 putts.  
Mizuno irons behaved well also.  
Shot a +4.

Tuesday all went well, again driver was good as the irons.  Switched putters to a Gene Nead custom and it was working.  
2 birds and an ugly double where a a new ProV1x wanted to go swimming!!  
Shot +2.

What model Mizuno irons do you play?

Backed up Saturday’s nice round with another one today. I didn’t really do anything exceptional, nor did I place in the money, but I shot a very solid 86 on what was a very long tough course (at least for me) at 6300 yards.

I’m hoping to get two more in on Saturday and Tuesday before I head up north for Christmas. I probably won’t get to play again until after my daughter has her twins. She’s due around the 10th, but supposedly twins come early? I’m really excited about finally becoming a grandparent, and starting out right away with both a boy and a girl is going to be great. I can’t wait!

Congratulations on the twins!  In our case twins came 2weeks late but that was 49 years ago!

 Congrats. on the news about the" soon to be here" twins, and your solid play on a long, tough course.  👍

Hopefully the weather back north won't be too bad, and you can get back south with plenty of time to play before the touristy season's hits N. Myrtle Beach area.

When I head in that direction, I try to make sure it is either "just before" or "just after" the prime golf season is in full force there.

Nice round... Grandpa!!  I knew you'd come back strong after your layoff.  I wish it would warm up here; I've been off for over a week, but not self-imposed!  Actually, my wife and I are starting to get on each other's nerves... she needs to get back on the course!!

My wife grew up in a golf family and all the men played golf with only her aunt also a golfer.  So it was probably expected that I would golf and I get total support to golf.  I actually invite her to go out with me, not because I know she will say no 😇 but with her total acceptance and support of my golf it feels like the right thing to do.

My wife grew up in a golf family as well.  He dad was scratch and club champion at multiple country clubs.  Her mom played, but it was a social thing for her.  Her 5 older brothers and an older sister all played, and she was on her H.S. golf team.  

She didn't play for many years after she moved here, but she decided to go play with her girlfriend one day at the course I played.  I joined them.  This was early 2000's and she was still playing 1960's Powerbilt blades and persimmon woods.  She was putting with her grandfather's hickory-shafted putter.  Several years later I proposed on the 1st tee of that course and we got married on the 1st tee (by a jazz musician😂) a year later.  She is much more competitive than I am and plays more days a week than I do.  When we travel, I always have a playing partner!!

Bogies 5 of the first 6 holes before settling down with a 40/38.

fricking cold to start, so the 5 layers may have hindered the swing a bit
