The key point here is knowing what works. If you don't know what works, then you have to keep trying new things. Right? ;)

Well yea, we all know what works right?wink

This past week end, I played in a scramble tournament and it was one of the most enjoyable outings that I have experienced.   A young buck with whom I have played golf quite a bit asked me if I would like to fill a team.   It was to benefit the sports programs at a local college that he and a couple of his buds are alums and played on its baseball team.   So the team was three young bucks and an old coot.   I felt like Phil at the President's cup.  Needless to say, we did not use any of my drives, but a couple of my second shots and I did get lucky and was able to pull some chips, pitches and putts out of my butt.  I don't know if they fully understood how enjoyable and appreciable it is to an old coot like me to have been invited and a part of their team.  Of course, there were a few good natured old man jokes, but that made it even more fun for me and I gave them a few wait til you're my age and when you grow up jokes.  We finished second.

Played in a local clubs Ryder cup style event this passed weekend. Played terrible Saturday. Should have either swept or tied maybe one match. Instead we tied the fourball, won the scramble and lost the alternate shot. Overall a split for Saturday's matches.

 

Sundays singles went much better. I only hit 5 greens but shot 70. Ended up scrambling well and an eagle helped. I think I ended up winning 4 and 2.

I'm sure it had to be demoralizing for me not to hit any greens and yet somehow be up 2 after 4 holes  :D. I think through 8 I was 3 under and had only hit 3 greens. And that was with a lip out bogey.

Played atypically well .. really well. Finished my local short 9-Hole course with a +7 .. It's a Par 35 (just one Par 5) so a personal best 42*

* with 1 Mulligan (tee shot went ZINGing straight left into the woods)

 

And that was with one Triple where after I'd pulled another tee shot left .. to find it in a really bad lie .. with an awkward stance .. I went brain-dead and needed *three* shots to clear it to a good layup spot....

 

So I had...

4 Pars

4 Bogeys

1 Triple

and hit 4 fairways and 3 greens.

 

Yea!

(I love this game .. again .. after not liking it so much after a really pitiful practice round just a few days ago.)

Day 2 of the MGA championship, well it did not go as planned, the front nine was 5,5,4,5,4,5,6,3,4. 1 par, 2 birdies, 1 double and 5 bogeys. I was 7 over through 7 holes. Not the start that I wanted, but finished the front with 2 birdies, almost chipped in for eagle on 9. Missed 2 legit birdie putts on the back, came up just short both times, and missed a couple other birdie chances but didn't make any, finished the back with a 40. So 7 over after 7 holes, and finished with a 81. 2 over for the last 11 holes, on a day when I didn't bring the best swing, and had a horrible start, I finished strong and had a good time.

I've been out of the loop for a while, but a little over a week ago, the wife and I took a mini vacation to Niagara-on-the-Lake. Played 9 on what is addressed at the oldest course in North America. The wife taxied me around, and I hit balls. Sliced every wood I hit, but my irons are starting to come back after a lesson and couple trips to the range. I can now feel what I'm doing wrong when I do it, but getting better. I made a lot of 6-10 foot putts and still shot 46. I thought I had a pic of a sign near the 8th green that it is still in the same configuration it was in 1875. Must be on the wife's phone.

76 from the tips at Fresh Meadow this morning. I still can't putt the greens there and left 7 putts on the front lip today. Tee to green it was much better than the number I shot.

Been there done that - I've ripped up a score card a number of times. Cheaper than breaking a club

Walked 18 today in a very light mist; no umbrella needed.  Shot 81.  My course has 5 par 3's and 5 par 5's.  Today I used driver on 15 holes!!  Two par 3's were playing over 200 yards on a cool, damp day.  Nothing special, nothing horrible.  Only 1 birdie on the #4 par 3 playing 147; hit it to 4 feet; made the putt thanks to my buddy playing his 3rd shot from 6 feet on the same line.

Played with my friend had his friend, I don't know that guy, on my home course. He's a good golfers but so abrasive at times. I'm not a big fan of people giving me golf tips in the middle of my practice swing but I just ignored it brst I could.

 

Then he started on this kids that kid so I joined in for some fun. I talked about how I like Phil Nicholsen short game and how I have his series wedge, and Roy Megavoid swing. I also wish I had Justin Thompson distance hitting an A1 driver.

 

He started to correct me with the right name but it didn't help much, also some how it helped my turned on my game and my wedge got really hot. I haven't checked my gamegolf but I think I shot 3 under front nine and may be a 1 under back nine. Needless to say I had a great day.

Yesterday, finally got do more than just look at my clubs for the first time in 6 weeks. And the round and a big was exactly the smoldering bag of dog crap you'd expect it to be. At least 7 balls lost, pulling and slicing, no feel around the greens. Playing a new course today, hopefully I can regain some of my dignity 😀

Shot pretty good except for a few holes. Played with a MGS lurker, a gent named Ron who was a cool old cat. He shot pretty well too.

 

I'm back to basics and really striking the ball well. I had a lot of “tweener” shots today, did better on the ones I clubbed up on, and had longer putts on the ones I tried to muscle up on.

I used to be better at being able to give it a little more, now as I'm getting older, it's just easier to take another club- lesson learned today

Well I was pretty calm, I think because I had to stay "in the moment" for about 8 hours that day, but my teammates were all jumping up and down and screaming, especially when I won in that playoff.  It was hilarious.  What made this even sweeter was that our team has had the same four core players for the last four years.  We are all seniors now, and we finally won the whole thing--the goal from the start.
