Played yesterday morning at Paradise Lake in Suffield until we got rained out. Which was a pity, because I was playing well, for me. Shot a 43 on the front 9 and did OK on the back until the heavens opened up on 14. It's a long par 3, hit 5 hybrid to the back of the green, 176 yards (of course the pin is at the front) and 2 putted for par.

 

My partner looked at me and asked "are you done?" and we headed for the car park.

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.

As a follow up I am delayed and not sure if I am getting out of LAX to JFK tonight at this point. Food poisoning and travel delays to play Shadow Creek???? Yes it was worth it.

Several years ago, I guess one could say that playing Shadow Creek was a perk of my job.   I attended a health related conference with a surgeon, an anesthesiologist and an internal medicine doc.   Around 6 in the afternoon, I accompanied them to a dice table at the Bellagio.  They were playing with their multiple black chips, while I would occasionally put out one of my red ones.  We quite often discussed our plans to play golf the next day.   Around midnight, I guess it was a pit boss, came to them and told them to stay around that he might be able to get them comped to a round of golf.  Being good friends, they said that it needed to be a foursome.   About an hour later, the gentleman returned with a foursome comp to Shadow Creek.  It was the first and only time, that I will take a limo to a golf course.   Now I was born a poor country boy and I will die a poor country boy, but at least for one day, I got to see how the fancy folks live.

40 / 45 = 85 today.  I actually hit the ball pretty good today however we started rushing our swings on the back as a big tournament was kicking off at 12:30.   I figured at least 5 or 6 shots were throw away strokes  which I would have easily cashed  in if I were grinding.

Dealing with shoulder rehab setback so hadn't hit a ball for over a month. Played yesterday not expecting much. Went into #18 (-3) with a totally clean card; finished at even. Ughhh!

Sorry about your shoulder, but still a great round.    Heck, if I ever shot even, if I were to die leaving 18, when I reach the gates, I would say to St. Peter--guess what I did today Pete.   And he would most likely say, we know, we just thought that you should die happy.

Was to play 18 in an event on Sunday...thank god it rained and they canceled the event. We still went and had plans to walk 18. But only made it thru 9. Could not get the cobwebs out that day ha. Maybe it was Saturday night reminding me I'm not 22 anymore.

Days like today are what make the game great and frustrating all at once. Had the best round of my life at 91 (42/49) last 2 holes on the back triple, double. Thought today was the day I'd finally break 90.

It will come.  Don't focus on your score during the round.  Once you break 90, it's easier the next time.

I wasnt focused on it during the roun, but after 9 (we were only supposed to play 9, I was sitting at 42, best I'd ever shot on the front 9 at this course) so I said lets continue and then the wheels fell off on 11 when I bladed a 60 yard chip shot 60 yards past the hole. Started losing control of my drive which made me try for shots that I shouldnt have been.

 

Like I said its gratifying and frustrating all at once, that I hate this game I want to quit feeling when I saw it was 91, but then also this is the best youve ever played be happy feeling makes me want to get back out.

 

More so just ranting to people who I know would understand, the fiance was like "you did great why are you mad" and was done with it

Yesterday I played at Babe Zaharias. My buddy picked me up at 6:15 and drove to the course. Upon arrival someone noted that we had the same shirt on, a white Babe Zaharias shirt. We then proceeded to ride in the same cart and shot 43/44:87....Both of us!

 

Isn't that sort of weird?

You should find someone with the same shirt that shoots 79.   ;)

51 in league last night.  I started with a scrambling par and ended with a traditional well played par.  Well in between was a lot doubles and a couple triples as you can tell.  Continued troubles off the tee cost me a few shots.   Good news is the new irons performed well, including a beautiful 7 iron approach on the final hole to set up the par.

Pretty lil blue heifer for sure however I knew the small stock grip was not gonna work.  I have big old hambone hands so I will be going to oversize asap.  Plus the stiff shaft is not gonna cut it with my swing speed.  I'll be looking for a regular flex low kick hybrid shaft and then all should be well.  I hit a couple of really solid shots with it but it was not as smooth as I had hoped for. My bad for thinking I could still elevate a stiff shaft with my slow swing speed.

Shot 42/45:87 today. Drives were spot on and made some insane putts(27) but my new hogans just weren't feeling it today as my pitches and chips were awful.

I decided I'd had enough of work for one week, so I took a day of vacation and made it a four day weekend. I played 18 holes and shot 79 this morning. It's amazing what getting out of bed at a reasonable time, making a pot of coffee and breakfast can do for your attitude...lol.
