Post a record round of 76- and chuckle when the computer asks "This score is outside the players' normal range (no kidding) is this correct?" YES, it was correct.

 

So, was it the K-Sigs? Was it that I trusted the ball? Was it that I trusted my swing? I did putt well, with about a half dozen 1-putts, and some rather accurate chipping to boot- but, all that said, when I got home I immediately went online to COSTCO, to order another 4 dozen K-Sigs, but alas, they are sold out again... I do like them!

 

That's a real American success story! I've heard good things about the K-sig off the putter so it just might be the ball. Congrats man.

... Well I have had 4 months of mediocre, out right bad and some occasionally pretty decent golf but only 3 total at par or under out of about 100 rounds. That said, I think I am finally figuring out

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

I had a good excuse, I had to drive in Sydney 3 days in a row. Worst traffic and drivers in the world.

 

I don't know about that mate, you should see some of the clowns here, they'd put us Sydneysiders to shame.

I shot 81 - not so great but it was my first time player my golf in a month. I actually hit the ball reasonable well particularly on the back. I made ho him pars on the last three holes. It was one of the rare times that I made in an in round swing adjustment and even rarer that it worked.

 

I'm anxious to get to the range tomorrow to be sure. Nothing radical, just got my hands a little higher on the back swing. Clearly with in my teacher's visual of a pizza delivery guy holding up a warm pie.

 

I hit the ball very crisply after that and had a career drive on one hole. That's truly incredible on a windless day in October.

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

Played a new course a few days ago - one of those rolling, open vista type scenic layouts with a lot (a *LOT*) of big mounds all over and covered with lots of ball-eating fescue and lots of ball-eating tall native grasses. In a few areas there were trees and some water hazards to be negotiated with, too. 

 

But it was the wind that kicked my butt that day!

 

Had a conversation with KennyB and I'd mentioned while I understand the concept of hitting it lower and letting it run out, I just don't seem to have those shots in my on-course repertoire. Well .. not as of yet (hopefully) .. something (else) to be learned! 

 

So my two best holes were the ones that ran through the trees, after the exposed tee boxes,  and so were relatively calm. Made a nice Par on a Par 4 (had one other Par on a short Par 3) and a Birdie (!!) on #18 a Par 5. Hit the fairway and green on each of those holes.

 

Everything else was Bogey, Double or Triple. Had three Triples, but .. to put a positive spin on it: my last few outings that seems to have been my worst one-hole score ... I seem to have been able to avoid the "Other" scores - like 6, 7, or 8 (or even worse!).

 

So this round was...

+13 / 48 (Par 35) on the Front 9 - where I was striking the ball poorly (AND took a few Mulligans, to boot) but putting really well. Made one 1-putt and all the rest were "easy" 2-putts; I got the first one close and was able to make the second;

and,

+12 / 47 (also Par 35) on the Back 9 - where the game flip-flopped (that ever happen to anybody???) and I was striking the ball mostly ok .. especially on #18 .. but couldn't putt anymore! Had FOUR 3-putts.... :-(

 

So I ended up with a 95 (plus a few Mulligans) which was good for me, but .. I look at one hole where I threw away two shots in a row and those 3-putts (and other stoopit errors) and can't help but think that a 90 may be within reach......

 

Just a few months ago (early July) I was ecstatic with a 95, so comparing the two I guess I've made some improvement since then. 

 

Interestingly, that earlier 95 was 50/45. Another 18 I played more recently was 50/43 for a 93; where that 43 was my best 9 to date .. I'd started with 3 Doubles on the Back 9 but then finished the last 6 at only +1 over. Two 9-Hole rounds since that were at 50 and then at 42 (on a Par 35).

 

So a bit of a pattern emerging where I seem to be doing better on the second 9 .. not sure what that means, exactly, other than to call the first 9 "Practice"! ;) :) ;)

(ha, but seriously - I probably need a better warm-up routine before playing)

Played my first round at Green Valley Ranch on Sunday. Birdied the first 3 holes and had a really nice round going. Played the last 4 holes +5 for a 74. Frustrating way to potentially close out the season.

Played Lakeside Camden yesterday. Absolutely beautiful day on the course.

 

Scored 40 points. 26 on the front nine, but started to run out of steam towards the end of the round in the heat...

 

It's the 7th competition round I've played in and the first in which I've beaten my handicap.

 

Hopefully it's the start of my improvement and I can start chipping away and getting it down.

 

EDIT: Just found out I dropped 2.6 shots off my HC. 🤘🏼

Monday played Belle Glade finally open after hurricane Irma.

Shot a 40/42 82 with one of the new Bridgestone Tour B ball. Unfortunately one ball decided to go swimming on the long par 5. Led to a double and the 42.

The golf season is coming to an abrupt end here in Iowa.  I played Sunday and spent more time looking for balls than actually playing.  Deep rough, leaves on the fairways and greens., "winter greens", you get the idea.  The last two days we've had 40 mph winds.  

 

Looks like tomorrow may be the last day, if the wind lays down.  It has been fun year, but all good things must end.

 

At least Pheasant season opens on Saturday--but most of the crops are still in the field, so the hunting won't be very good for a few weeks.  

 

Sigh.

In the Rant Thread I described my ordeal with the surgery I had scheduled for yesterday.  Didn't happen, so I took advantage of the great weather today and my wife and I played 18 holes at the club.  I'm not sure if it was because I was pissed about spending 4 hours in the hospital ER unnecessarily, but I shot 75 today that included two double bogeys.  I managed to play the back nine in 34 which is -1.  It was a decent day driving the ball, and I made a bunch of putts.

 

Beautiful day; 65* and no wind.  Here's the par 5 #9 hole looking from behind the green back down the fairway.  The people on the other side of the pond are in the #7 fairway.  Just a par today.

I've been playing a few unfinished rounds because of late sunrise and earlier responsibilities. Yesterday I played a full round. 107* in SoCal give me a break, amazing front nine. I shot even, with 2 bogeys and an ob. Back nine was so so, it was hot I was burning I ran out of good shots and shot 41 in the back. Took a double on the last hole, I hit my approach from 67 yards thin and sent it over the green. Nothing back there but I was too distracted to find it so I dropped.

 

Cold doesn't bother me as much as heat but I'm glad I got to play nonetheless.

Well, since I didn't have my surgery and it's still lovely golf weather, I showed up at the club when my walking guys usually play on Wednesday.  Since I wasn't supposed to be there, one guy brought his son-in-law.  No worries.  The club has decided this year to let 5-somes play.  I don't like it, but it benefited me today.  We kept up with the groups in front of us, so people behind us couldn't complain.

 

I shot another good round for me;  76, all pars except for 4 bogeys.  Two birdies lipped out.  I didn't hit the driver great, just OK.  Irons were solid, and the Wilson D300 hybrids were dead solid perfect!  I did have a 30-yard bunker shot; got up and down for par.

 

That's 75 and 76 two days in a row.  Maybe I should skip the surgery!!

Played this morning at my club with two guys that used to work for me. Cold and windy from the start with some sprinkles of rain. Shot 3 over 40 going out and even par 34 on the way back in. Based on the conditions it was absolutely the best number I could have put up. Add in I was playing a set of irons that had not been in the bag all season and it really was the best I could have played.

Played Wednesday morning cold, well for us 58' but very windy. Shot a struggling 42 on the front and a barely made it in 44 back. The wind just kicked my butt. 2-3 club wind on the back just too much for an old fart.

I feel you pain. 12 and 13 played dead into the wind. Hit driver hybrid on 12 (playing 420) and 3 wood five iron on 13 play 372. Normally two fairly easy holes when the wind is down.

Was not supposed to play today but my wife forgot she had a full day out of the house so I played 54 holes. Shot 68-68-69 for my three rounds at my club from the back tees. Mini retirement is agreeing with me to the point that I may take my buddy up on playing a month of mini tours in Florida this winter. No shot I can really compete but at least I am at the point I won't embarrass myself.

It was an unusually quiet today I went out to the range at my club to work on my short game and left handed clubs. I was going to play a nine left handed. Then I ran into another friend a high handicap lefty so after the warm up we went and play.

 

My round was ok shot 75 missa couple of “easy” pars but made several par “saves”. Then we decided to play another 9 left handed. Mind you, he may be a high handicap but he could still get the ball out there over 200. I only carry irons and not a full set, I borrow his 5 hy and put it out there 170. It was not easy but after a few holes I got the hang of it. When we get to 120 range I know I can hole it out in 3.

 

Made a lot of doubles but made pars on both par 5s which surprises me the most. I feel pretty invincible shooting 48. It's fresh seeing the course from the other side of the box. I'll do my best to put in a few nines a month.
