How'd you play?

Teed off at 11:40am; 20 minutes late.  It was 39* but no wind.  Warmed up to a balmy 42*. I shot 82 which is good for me given the weather; no birdies, two 3-putts.  Had two long greenside bunker shots that I got to 5 feet, but couldn't make any putts.  I don't putt well when my hands are cold.

Birdies seem to be in hibernation for me also.

I didn't know anything hibernated in Florida.

Well I threw away the scorecard after 14 if that says anything. I held it together on the front 9 and had a chance to break 80 with a better-than-normal back 9 but totally blew up on 10 and 11.

 

I was my usual wild self off the tee but hit some excellent wedge shots and drained 6 low-percentage putts.

 

Luckily I played well once I ditched the scorecard so it makes for easy math that puts me at an 88.

 

 

 

 

 

I did this same thing when I was trying to break 90 for the first time. Just putting too much pressure on every shot and am not playing well off the tee.

First time swinging a club without pain in about 6 weeks so I didn't keep score. It took me awhile to get get over the mental part of my wrist injury and once I did I was really started hitting some fantastic shots.

 

I didn't keep score as today was all about testing the wrist and getting confidence that it was indeed healthy and no swing or shot type would hurt. Mission completed and then some.

 

Really glad my golf season isn't over and I can get some more swings in the the jpx 900 tours before typing out my final thoughts for stage 2 of my review

Sunday was awful; cold, rainy, snowy.  This morning the sun was out, not a cloud in the sky, and mid-40's.  I walked with the guys at the club, and I am still on a roll... sorta.  I shot 79 with 3 double bogeys.  Not happy about the doubles, but I had 3 birdies.  One came on the 570y par 5 #5 hole; hit my 3rd shot to 5 feet.  The second one came on the par 3 #12 hole where I got an ace a couple of months ago; almost got another one, hit it to a foot away.  The third one was an unlikely putt from 4 feet off the green on the par 4 #16; about 50 feet, left to right breaker.

 

One of the guys I was playing with got an ace on the par 3 #17; his second.  The weather is turning bad again, and this may have been my last round this year unless it's decent this weekend when my wife and I hopefully will play.  I hate to quit while I am playing well.

Weather has turned here in Central Indiana and Sunday looked like our last day for a while. We decided to just go 9 holes early and try to beat incoming storms. Was wet and muddy so we were rolling the ball over. Definitely not real golf and I had 0 expectations to do anything other than get out of the house. So of course.....2 pars to start. Birdies on 3 and 4. Sloppy bogey with wedge in my hands on 5 so 1 under. Then make 30 footer for birdie on 6, hit a great 5 wood second shot over a pond to 6 feet for eagle on 7. Par the par 3 eighth and punch a 5 iron from 170 into a 15 mph breeze to 4 feet on 9. Made that to play the last 4 holes 4 under and shoot 31! Beat my low for the year on that side by 2 shots, and had averaged 38 for the season. No swing thoughts, no putting thoughts, no worries, just out chasing it around. Was almost like my clubs were saying "We told you all year long WE'RE NOT THE PROBLEM! Now go put us away and do some work on yourself this off season." Smart Ass clubs

Congratulations!  Seems we always play better when we don't have any expectations for the round.

Had a fun day today. Steady Eddy shot 76. Fight a cold still but the paring partners were interesting. Father and son and uncle. Among the three there are probably over 60 years of golf.

 

First the dad was a big guy with some gas problem. It seems to leak everytime he moved:), I was fine but I just stay away and up wind from him. The uncle may have been hit in the head a few times as he likes to stand directly in front of the person hitting the ball.

 

Then come the highlights of the round, the son hit the drive that ended up behind a big tree about 15-20 yards in front of the ball. After a few moment of consideration and while waiting for the group in front of us to clear the green, he turned and asked me. I said punch out side way is the safest route and if done diagonally, he wouldn't lose any distance. He said he could fade it around the tree, he's done it before.

 

Jokingly, I said hit it well or “duck”. He hit it square to the tree and bounce right back to hit him in the groin. Yelp! I swear, he hit the ground so fast like someone bet him a million dollars that he couldn't dig a hole with his face. They got enough class to joke about it the rest of the round. Fun crowd, I hope I get to play with them again.

 

Talking about it I could still feel his pain.

Now that's funny, not for him though.

Played ok. No putts dropped for me all day. Still trying to groove the new 2-ball.

I️ think I'll try putting a few thin black lines on the top to aid in alignment.

 

Hit one of the longes drives I've ever hit.
