Played really well yesterday. First round playing my own ball in about a month. We played a tough course and I shot -1 71. My ball striking was great.

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

Started out the day pretty well with a 2 over 38 with 2 bogeys coming on 3 putt holes.   The back was a completely different story as I seemed to completely lose my swing from 13-17; lost 5 golf balls during that stretch.  Got it back together on 18 and finished with a birdie.

I played okay today on the local exec course - 3,120 yds.

The putter was on fire! I also hit the driver okay on the few holes it was needed. The one hole that I hit the 3 wood off the tee didn’t go so well. But I was able to finally hit my 4 hybrid off the tee.

The 3 hybrid is still a work in progress. At the range I nail it now, which wasn’t true a month ago. But hitting from dead center of the fairway today on a perfect lie I managed to shank it right into the rough - twice. So back in the bag for a while.

I hit several good approach shots with various irons, so that is encouraging. And I got out of trouble fairly well today too. Only 2 blowup holes in 18 is an improvement.

hahaha   I outdid you on the front nine today!!  47/37

I birdied #1 then had 4 doubles.  I had 2 birdies on the back, including a chip-in.  I could NOT hit my driver today, but I could chip!!

So Saturday I shot an 84 with 3 birdies... lousy front nine +10, good back nine +2.  Chipping was great!!

Today I shoot 81 with no birdies...  good front nine +2, lousy back nine +7.   Chipping was not great!

Why do the golf gods do this to me?

Played at Brookledge Golf Club in Cuyahoga Falls this morning and shot a 42/45 87. My drives were still a bit sketchy but I think it's coming around. My irons were very good as was my 5 wood. Putting needs a lot of work from about 5' and in.

Played the back-9 at my home course today. Posted a fairly OK 45 that included a couple of pars and only one bad 3-putt for a 7 on a par-5. Putting was good overall and the new iron shafts are making dividends. First time out wearing pants and not shorts for a long while...fall is in the air...dammit!

Played in an FSGA one-day event near St Augustine, Florida today at the Golf Club of South Hampton. What a soggy mess. Bunkers were packed mud with standing water. Practice putting green was cut much slower than the course itself, so imagine my surprise when I ran my first putt 10 feet past the hole.

Lost several strokes just taking relief from cart paths, as even with the club length drop your ball is still sitting on hard pan and tree roots. I took a mental note on this nonsense and the next time I get something like this I will take an unplayable penalty and move the ball to real grass.

I figure between the mud bunkers, hard pan tree roots off cart paths and unpredictable green speeds I lost about 9-12 strokes, carding my nifty little 87.

Honestly, I don’t normally make excuses for a high score, but when you are hitting the ball really good all day long and walk off with so many bogies or worse for various reasons related to bad course conditions, that’s not on me, that’s on the golf course.

It’s sad honestly, because I actually liked this course layout.

FL is a “bit” sloppy right now but unfortunately going to get worse with the Tropical Storm blowing thru the gulf.

Shot a nice 4 over at a cool track I haven’t played in over 10 years. It was redesigned about 5 years ago they said and I really liked the new layout. It played at 6540 yds from the blues, and 6800 from the tips, but I stayed at the blues.

People lose their minds at the threat of a storm. Bread and water gone from the stores. Gas stations out of gas. Like any of this stuff will help when a tree falls into your living room.

Only two guys showed up today and they both had something going on afterwards, so golf was only 9 holes today.  It was a good thing because we got some spits of rain.  

I'm still hitting the occasional wayward tee shot.  I only hit one (1) green in regulation, and didn't chip particularly well either.  However, I parred the first 6 holes and one-putted the first 5 holes.  The shortest putt was 6 feet; longest was 25 feet.  I just laughed as they went in the cup!!  I came down to earth, two-putting holes 6-9 for a +3 score on the front nine.

Saturday played a course that I know very well with my buddy Mark. Kokopelli.

This games funny.. About 2 weeks ago I had a pretty stellar round there (for me) and shot an 80. I felt like everything was working that day. On Saturday I just felt like everything was off and not coming together like I'd like. My buddy was having an off day too. Not to mention the course was in pretty rough shape due to pre re seeding prep so there was just an extra added level of difficulty. At the end we added everything up and I shot an 83 and he shot an 86. I was honestly expecting something in the 90's by the way things seemed to be going.

Played okay gave up keeping score though. I was losing balls in the first cut even when I knew right where they landed because of how wet it was. Lost 5 balls within five feet of the fairway.

Played 9 last night and the night before. First rounds in almost weeks. Played ok, but no touch with short irons. around the greens. or on the greens. Went from hard dry course to slow and wet course with plugged greens. 

I wil say the 905 I bought a month ago is getting more reliable on every hole.

Played a short 9-hole course I hadn't played in a long time. Only had my practice wedges and an old putter with me as I was originally headed to a short Par 3 but got re-routed due to construction.

This is a pretty short course, too .. just looked it up and it's only 1930 yds .. so with a PW as my longest club figured it would be good practice.

And it was. Generally kept the ball moving towards the green and, despite a lot of very thin grass and mud, chipped/pitched onto the greens well enough.

Think I made more bogies today - which for me is good - than any other round so far, so I guess I'll have to play this way more often!
