Played in a US Open qualifier on Monday.  Was playing ok (+1 thru 13) and I tried to press.  I was thinking 68 was the number, when EVEN 71 would have done it.  I guess that's why you play your game till the end.  Shot 76, only one guy broke par.  Back to the drawing board for next year.

Today was a good day.  First hole in one ever.  50° Cobra King wedge from 120 yards.  Hit just past the hole and spun back in. Shot 73 to tie my lowest round ever. Won my match 8 and 6

Un-bloody-conscious! I still can't believe it but I shot a 79! 57% FIR 33% GIR 30 putts.  

I got a hole in one on the first hole today. Makes for a really enjoyable round. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

Way to give it a run J. Its hard to know what the number you need is gonna be sometimes. At least you gave it a go.

Got off the plane in LV today and walked to passenger pick up with Alec Baldwin (pretty good start to the trip). Got picked up and went to Southern Highlands to play golf. Really awesome private club outside of LV. Had some good company and music going on the course and possibly a few adult beverages. Played decent for not practicing or playing all that much this year from the blues. Put up a really nice 78 that I will take most days with the current state of my game. Made a nice birdie on 18 and jarred a wedge for another.

Played my best round in a couple of weeks; shot 42/39 for an 81.  Score could have been a few shots better if my putter would get out of it's funk.  I had 3 three-putts from long range and missed several makable birdies, one stopping 0.5 inches dead in the heart!!  Beautiful, sunny 82* day; it was nice to be out walking.

Shot a 47 in League. Started off with a triple and my game was off in most areas. Hit a couple of great shots followed with a shot that would make you say "hmmm". Scrambling was decent and that allowed me to save bogey on a few holes. Still, a few makeable par saves within a close distance didn't go down and my iron play was all over the map. Lowlight funny for the day, hooked a drive but found the ball. Lie wasn't great in a bit of a dirt swail with a rock three feet in front of it which I should of easily have gone over especially with a wedge. Instead I hit the rock with the ball and the ball sails over my head perfectly behind me 48 yards. Didn't realize it was trick shot Wednesday, lol.

70 and hitting that far and shooting that low. What an inspiration to get my old butt out there and practice. I still hold out hope there are some yards to be found, if I can ever get pointed in the right direction with my swing that seems to have left me two years ago.

Yep, at that age being able to play that well is inspirational and exactly what I need now.   While this may sound unrealistic and just hopeful thinking, it is my hope that having reached my current age, it will result in the opportunity to improve my game.  I am now what I will label as semi-retired with full retirement about a year and a half away.   As a result of this status, I now have the time and opportunity to take lessons and dedicate myself to practice because my professional obligations are not as restrictive to such efforts.  When fully retired, because I do not have the resources to travel the world, as long as I am physically able, golf will be my primary retirement activity. Accordingly, I want to do so the best I can, perhaps even better given the opportunity to work at doing so.

And yes, this was verified by GPS, you went from 141 yards to the center of the green to 189...As close to you as I was, I never actually saw it ricochet.  Good thing it went back and not sideways  :o

Well I had a nice bonce back yesterday from my disaster round on Tuesday.  Shot 47/46 on two separate rounds of 9 holes.   The 46 was a very poor putting round with 2-three putts and the rest two putts.  I left 4 strokes out there with putts.  Had GIR on both par 3's but 3 putted them both.   First was from about 80 feet, the 2nd was to a very tough pin location.    So at least i felt like I was hitting the ball pretty solid, except for off the tee.  it was not great, but didn't cost me any penalty strokes...so that's good.

 

The 47 round was pretty much the same thing, solid ball striking used the 3w off the tee a lot and that left me in a lot of fairways, although in the 180'ish range out on most holes.

You just described me three years ago.  Actually, I started my semi-retirement 10 years ago and gave myself a golf school vacation.  I retired officially 20 months ago and last year my HCP was the lowest it's ever been.  It's a wonder how much better the golf game gets when you can spend more time practicing the skill shots.

Played 12 yesterday - #1 thru 3 then back to #1 on a 9-Hole course. Played decently, too, overall .. though did start to fall apart a bit on the last three holes... But first 8 holes all my (first!) tee shots were solid - huge improvement for me! - and even hit the Par 5 (#4) in two! Now, I am NOT usually a 'go for it' guy - don't really have the distance nor the confidence in my accuracy, but my tee shot was great .. went sailing over the first fairway and then made a small draw to turn into the dogleg left second fairway .. about 235 out (yes: this is unusually good for me) and lying nicely on the upslope towards the elevated green maybe 30 ft higher.

 

Typically I would take the PW or 9i and lay up to give myself a shot at the green - which is oval-shaped with the long axis perpendicular to the approach, so either your distance control (going uphill, cannot see the green surface) has to be spot-on or you give yourself a wedge shot at an angle - but it's quiet there, I'm playing alone, no one behind me and like I said ball was lying nicely so I say to myself, "What da heck - let's give it a go!" Grab the hybrid, try to orient my stance for the upslope and swing away. Ball flies on line, though a little low, and then takes a strong fade at the end to hit the right side of the green. Thought it had bounced off the right edge, off the green, but when I got up there....

IMG_20170510_143731656.jpg

 

It was a long putt, but reasonably straight, and .. I got really close to making it... Turned left at the end, which I should have accounted for as that's the predominant break on this green, but I was happy with the putt as the second one was short and easy.

 

Next tee shot was solid, though I duffed the approach wedge shot on a somewhat steep below the feet lie so gave myself a do-over which I nailed :) Next hole were not great shots but all playable; the next (#7), a Par 3 about 130 uphill to a blind green and into a light breeze - I gave myself a Mulligan and put that one on the back edge of the green. Didn't make the birdie putt but had an 'easy' par. #8 had a topped tee shot but totally nailed the second shot to hit the green with the ball lying a littel past and left of the pin.

 

#9 we're not going to talk about............

Just enjoyed the weather and company today.I got matched up with our 5 time city champion and learned some great techniques.He showed me a effective way to release the club-and a unique follow thru.Was such a pleasure to watch and learn.His advice was working as well.Maybe I might've got lucky and found a new way to do this?

I had a great round today I shot 93 playing 2-ball worse ball. I made 10 bucks my buddy shot 99. We are both low single.

 

Front nine was great we had a few pars each but I couldn't keep the focus up. At least no triple today I sank a 15 footer for a double on 18. :)

4 birds on my way to a 68 today.

 

Best shot of the day was a 180 yard 5 iron, that I had to turn about 30 yards around a big tree.

Narrowly missed 3-4 other birds putts too.

 

Been shooting lights out lately.

Played in 2 captains choice outings this past week, played the strawberry festival outing here in fort mill on Tuesday with 3 guys from church, we all played decent that day and together we shot 57, which tied for second with about 5 other teams, first place was some guys that play in these things together all the time, they shot 53. That is skewed some because of mulligans. Then on Saturday my work hosted their first, hopefully annual, golf outing to raise money for the 4 charities that the company and employees sponser. I played with 2 guys that are probably 20 hcps, they payed well so that helped, I hit the ball incredibly well that day we shot a 65. It was a short course so we were 5 under on the par fives. I was able to reach all of them. So we had 2 other birdies and another eagle along with 2 bogeys, but all in all we played really well, and I came within inches of having a hole in one on our last hole, 300 yd par 4. I am still trying to figure out how the ball got past the hole without going in, but it was a tap in eagle.

Shot 39/43:82 today with one birdie. Man o man I was striking the ball well today. I had drives of 220/238/265......yep, 265....wind was dormant and I hit a pull down the left side where the cart path is.......ball had one scuff mark on it. I was just short of the left bunker so I chipped up only to have the ball stop in the fringe....did par the hole.

 

The Ben Hogan irons were flush today. They really felt great when striking the ball.

 

We played net Hcap today so my net was 63 and I took second place(there were 18 playing).

Shot a 78 with a triple bogey (par 3, tee shot in water, 3rd shot to 15', and 3-putted). Biggest issue right now is putting, beginning to wonder if I need a new putter!
