How'd you play?

Excited for Kenny!

We finally got to play today after nearly three weeks. It showed - ugly 83 - nothing memorable other than tons of rust. Lots of trees down on the course. attachicon.gifIMG_0620.JPG

Sadly the one I'd love to see gone was still there.

Funny how that works. We had some really bad flooding this spring that took down two trees, but the wrong two. The one tree I want gone lives on. Might come down to a balaclava and a chainsaw on a dark moonless night.

Thanks Rev!  Glad to see you back on the course,

 

We don't have a lot of trees, but we also have one that's at the corner of a par 5 dogleg that keeps getting in my way.  It didn't come down in out last windstorm to took out seven trees.  Dang!

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

What do Kenny B and Jason Day have in common?

 

Answer: We both had a Hole-in One this week.

 

Today on #12 at Columbia Point GC playing 158y, I hit a very nice 7i that landed, took one hop and spun back in the cup.

 

Congrats Kenny!!

My wife and I were playing with another couple that we occasionally play with. It's the first time the other couple have seen an ace. My wife, playing for 52 years, has never had one. This is my third.

FINALLY recorded my first eagle. Man, that felt good! attachicon.gifIMG_0036.JPG

I got my first one a couple weeks ago. Walked the 30' downhill double breaker in from the last 10'. Congrats!

Today was my walking day with the guys at the club.  It was a little cool when we started at 10:24 but the sun came out for a few minutes... then went away.   :(   So, it didn't get very warm.  THEN, the wind came up; 15-20mph.  My first windy round in over a month.

 

They started us on #10, so that screwed me up; headed to #1 and no one was there.  The marshal came and picked me up because my guys were teeing off on 10.  This was the first round in quite awhile where I did not have a double or worse.  9 bogeys and 1 birdie for an 80; +4 on each side.  My new Ping Doon saved several pars and I even made a couple of 6 footers for bogey.

If you are following the VAMDPA meetup link, you know that Carolina Golfer had Wahoo and me out to his facility "Compass Pointe" an outstanding 36 hole track near Pasadena, MD, yesterday afternoon.

 

The skies opened up just prior to my arrival, and I think scared off a few who thought it might last- But never fear- the skies cleared and we had a great round.

 

The course was in great shape, fairways lush and greens receptive- my initial observations are that the greens are relatively small, and have subtle (and some not so subtle) contours that make for a very good test. 

 

I was striking the ball relatively well, but could not buy a putt.  probably 3-jacked 3 of the first 7 holes.  Number 8 is an unforgiving, long par 5 with a sweeping dogleg to the left.  The visual on this hole is intimidating- it does not appear there is anywhere to drive.  Hesitatingly I blocked a driver right, hit the only tree across the entire fairway, and kicked into the waist deep gorse, and re-tee-ed hitting 3 and my first double of the day.  44 going out...

 

Settled down a bit on the back 9, pared a couple then came to 12, a short par 3 with water right and traps and woods left.  Blocked an 8 iron through some shrubs lining the pond, but did not go in the water- played a provisional to the center of the green then looked (unsuccessfully) for the first shot. Now putting for bogie, left it a foot short. second double of the day.

 

Arrived at 14 ( a beautiful long par 5), and end up about 6 feet out for birdie.... left it short (violation!!!) settled for par.

 

Next hole is a tight par 4 with water right and woods encroaching on the left- very tough visually, but played for center and actually hit where I aimed and now about 140 out to a two tiered green.  Good approach and made the putt- ok, things are settling down.

 

Throughout the next several holes, the course fit my eye- I liked the visuals and the understood where to land the ball (even if I didn't pull off the shot I could see what I needed to do. 

 

Few more pars and I am looking at a possible 39, all I have to do is make some putts- But alas, that was not to be.  Even on two separate 18, 20 foot away birdie putts I had - left them both short.....story of my game - 41 coming back in.

 

Thanks Wahoo and Carolina Golfer- was a GREAT time!!! we absolutely need to do it again!

As ddryan stated, he and I spend a great afternoon of golf with Carolina at his course.    Normally, at this course, my buds and I play the Senior tees, but the course has a league which I would like to join and it uses the longer tees.   So, I played those tees to see if I could join the league without making a fool of myself.   While the added length definitely impacted my game, I think I could survive without making myself look too foolish.  It was also confirmed that I must learn to play out of greenside sand bunkers.   Taking a 6 on a par 3 because it took me 3 shots to get out of the bunker, didn't help my cause.   I swear, if I could get out of a sand bunker, I could immediately lower my handicap by 3 strokes.  I know its mostly mental, so perhaps, I should see a shrink.

 

Carolina and ddryan:  Thanks for a great afternoon.

... Just had the best round of my entire golfing life today. I hit every fairway and virtually every green but one, with 3 shots on the fringe. One on the fringe landed about 3" from the pin jumped forward and spun back about 10' and off the green to the fringe. The one green I missed was a 242 yd par 3 to a back pin and a gentle breeze in my face so I hit a choked down driver and just pushed it a little afraid to swing 100% and fly the green so I missed the green by a good 15 yards right and the pin was back left. But I hit a good 60* to a few inches for a tap in. So other than the par 3 I had birdie putts on every single hole with 6 I would call makable and I made 3 of them, lipping out the others. And here is the kicker, my son borrowed my putter and did;t put it back in my bag n the trunk of my car so I had to borrow one from the pro shop. I have always used a 33" heel shafted blade putter and this was a beat up Tour Edge space ship looking 35" thing, but truthfully I only felt like one short breaking putt that I missed might have been holed with mine. 

 

... So I finished with a 69 carding 3 birdies and 15 pars, and although I have scored lower I have always had some bad shots with a few miss hits sprinkled in. I just can't describe the feeling of hitting every single shot dead solid and my driver was just straight and long all day. Kinda crazy but I was a little nervous on 18 after another bombed drive and I had 152 to a front pin and was trying to block out the thought I might miss hit this one a little and ruin a perfect ball striking day. But hit a solid 8 iron to 6 feet under the hole and made the birdie. Just a very magical day that I may never repeat but of course there is always hope. 

 

Kind of day most of us dream about.  Great round!
