How'd you play?

Played 18 with the usual suspects Wednesday. Shot 86, while not my finest moment I wasn't disappointed. Wind was 16-20mph with gusts to high 20's. Not used to that kind of wind conditions anymore. Fun morning, good guys. Courses finally drying out.

Played 18 work an old buddy yesterday, and .. provisionally .. broke 90(!!) with an 89. I say "provisionally" as we were giving ourselves a few Mulligans and a few do-overs; I used 5 or 6 total.

 

Overall I was striking the ball way, way better than usual and had way more good .. or almost good :-) .. shots than not so good this time out. Hit a bunch of good tee shots, too .. and even hit some fairways! .. and several good (or almost good ) approach shots.

 

Had two legit (no do-over shots) Pars on the front 9 for a "provisional" 46 and then two more on the back 9 plus .. two real Birdies (!!) for a provisional 43. One birdie was a short Par 3 at 109 and other was #18 a downhill dogleg left at about 406.

 

Had several other close chances at a par or a birdie but tho short game was generally steady there were a few places where I could've (should've...) chipped it closer and/or made the first putt.

 

Worst holes were Triples, and "only" had two of those; then two Bogeys and a bunch of Doubles.

 

One of the real highlights of the whole round was not a particular shot but somewhere along the back 9 I started feeling the balance on my lead foot on the downswing and follow-through. Very different than anything previously and definitely a lot more solid (more "grounded"?).

 

I could clearly see the result in the shots I started making after that and finished the last 6 holes at only +1 over (which shudda been at even except for a careless 3-putt....). So yea! and feeling good with the progress I've made through this season.

Played 9 holes on a course that just opened today from the Hurricane. Decent shape, not great but still good to see it opened again. Shot 43, not thrilled but still not upset. Getting used to G400 irons.

Great day today.......shot a 42/41:83 today with 2 birdies.

 

Paid $7 to play in the Senior game and took home $10.......winner winner chicken dinner.

 

I was striking. the ball very well and when I got into trouble, I was able to Scramble. My putting was spot on today, using my Bellum Winmore 707.

 

Since the Fall 2day tournament is just a week away, guess the Bellum Winmore makes the grade!

Squeeze in a back nine this morning. The temperature difference from morning to mid day is crazy right now. This morning at 5:50am was 54* and by midday it would be 91*.

 

I played with my brother yesterday and I notice that my drives were noticeably longer and the stats shows that I was about 15 yards longer on avg. I want to make sure so I went out this morning, it was longer. Today at my home course i'm About 10-30 yards longer. It's a combination of 2 things first I adjust my loft to 12.5* from 13.5* and I started playing more pronounced draw.

Flew down to Orlando yesterday morning and had a 1 PM tee time in the rain at Isleworth. No time on the range or putting green led to a rough first five holes with five straight bogies. Settl d down and shot even par on the way in for a 77. Finished second in the money game and made a few bucks. Course was a blast to play and had the most penal 1 inch rough I have ever seen.

 

Got up early this morning after staying at the Lodge at Lake Nona and went to the range to hit balls next to Anna Nordqvist. After I gave her a few tips I hit some balls and went out and played Nona. Surprisingly I liked the course a lot more than Isleworth. The layout is fun and challenging and the rough is not nearly as penalizing. Shot 38 going out and even on the way in for 74. Overall a good round in the heat and the sun.

OK, well this is weird.  I started out this spring at a 9.2 HI and played lousy most of the year, worked my way up to 12 by mid-July.  However, the last few weeks have been awesome, and I have gotten back down to 8.8.  Over the last week or so, I had a hole-in-one, chipped in twice for birdies and shot my course personal best at 73.

 

Today, my wife decided she wanted to play nine after work.  She even left work early so we could get done before dark.  It was 75* but the wind was blowing 15-25mph (tomorrow it's supposed to blow 30-40mph).  I started off with pars on the first 4 holes, then lipped out a par putt on the 570 yard #5 hole playing into the wind.  I got it back on #6 with a birdie, then bogeyed the 380 yard #7 back into the wind.  I made an unlikely par on the 210 yard par 3 #8 also playing into the wind.  Then on the dogleg par 5 #9, downwind off the tee, but not after the dogleg, I hit my tee shot into the left rough at the dogleg; downhill/sidehill lie I hit a nice 4H down the middle to 128 from the pin.  PW two-hopped into the hole for Eagle.  My wife called me an a$$hole (term of endearment).  Bottom line is I shot -1 for the front nine.  

 

That's my all time best front nine score by 2 shots.  My game feels pretty solid right now, but I'm headed to Phoenix on Sunday... golf school so I can learn how to play this silly game.

Congrats on the new found success.  My handicap has been trending in the wrong direction and hope I find some of the magic that seems to be part of your game the past week.

Not as well as my prior finishing last 6 holes just a few days ago .. but, that's golf, right?

 

Played 9 with my wife this afternoon and even tho .. after the first hole .. was generally striking the ball decently the final score did not reflect it. But, that's golf, right? ;)

 

Had a wayward tee-to-green shot almost every hole, and tho short game shots were pretty much all on the intended line I seemed to leave *everything* a little short... Didn't adjust to the slower greens and wasn't getting all the first putts close enough. So missed out on a few Pars I might have otherwise had a chance at (maybe...).

 

So an opening Triple, four Doubles, three Bogeys and one Par. Ended up with a 50 (no Mulligans and no topped tee shots, tho I did pull or hook a few; one Penalty for a lost ball .. which was the second shot on a long Par 5 that I hit OK but a little left and it bounced it's way somewhere not to be found .. then the shot after the drop took off dead online and .. hit the end of a branch and dropped straight down!; and too many 3-putts).

Shot 79 today. Missed about 6 or 7 really short birdie putts and had several 3-putts. Drove a par 4 and 3-putted :(. Plus, I just couldn't score on the par 3s. Was 4 over on the par 3s and 3 over for the rest of the holes.

I came down to earth today; poor round in the wind, and a 6-some wedding party in front of us.  Unreal!!  No rhythm whatsoever.  We finished in 4:15 but we had to skip a few holes to do that.

 

Off to Phoenix at 5:45am in the morning.

Played in a mixed scramble today with my daughter and a mate and his daughter. Started really well, with 2 birdies. I had a flat patch when the brain wasn't switched on, which seems to happen in scrambles.

 

Got it back together but probably too late. Finished 5 under with one bogey.

 

Highlight was my mates daughter driving the green on a par four from about 265 yards. A good effort for a 15 year old girl.

 

We had a fun day, my daughter struggled a bit, but hit some good shots after a long lay off.
