How'd I play? Ha, I don't even know if what I did could be considered "playing", more accurately, "hacking" or "chunking". That's all I want to say about it.

My wife and I played the front 9 today. Surprised she wanted to go out since she's not a fan of cold. Beautiful day - sunny, 52, little breeze. I didn't play well ended up with a 52. How does that happen after playing 45 on the same front 9 yesterday and it was colder.

Played my tail off yesterday for a personal best 84!!! That still was not good enough to win the most skins, but damn was it nice to have a great day where most everything came together! 1 bird and tons or pars and a couple of doubles. Not a perfect performance with the occasional skull-job and duff, but I recovered nicely from those and had several GIR's. Starting to really like these new iron shafts a whole lot.

I shot 35/40 - 75 on a par 59 executive course. My personal best. Birdied hole #1 and the rest of the day was almost as good. Many solid putts and tee shots. The new swing is finally coming around.

Played from the Blacks today and shot my best score ever at this course. Had it working together nicely. Four drives over 300 yards with the new M4. Very happy with my round.

Played in a Ryder Cup style matchplay event today and yesterday. We played fourball yesterday and singles today. Unfortunately I finished 0-2, but thought I played really well overall. We played 17 holes before losing the first match and I managed to push today's match to 18 after being dormie on 16 with many other players looking on as we were the last group. It was my first truly competitive golf experience and I can't wait to do more!

Well, the wheels fell off yesterday. I shot 48/41:89, but managed a tie for 4th place out of a 33 player field. I just could not get my irons to work. Still it was a terrific day for golf, weather was partly cloudy and temp in the upper 80’s.

Played over the weekend and had one of my best irons day of the year. A smooth buttery iron always adds a hop to my step, stringing a bunch of those together had me dancing the whole way home.

 

Struggled out of the tee box, but not enough to detract from the good vibes.

My new to me I200's came in today at 1:00 and I was on the course by 2:00.😍 It took me a few holes to figure out the distances and get comfortable with the added length but after that, it was love at 1st hit. I was playing 710 AP1's before, so I had no idea what "workability" was, and let me tell you, I LOVE being able to work the ball without having to make a crazy over the top move. Oh, and they sound nice too. They have just a perfect crisp sound. 

I actually think having a less forgiving club made me focus on ball striking and is making me a better ball striker because I can't let my swing get sloppy and get away with it.

Decided to take a break from my Cobras and Arccos today and gamed my Hogan Ptx irons and Wilson Staff Triton, along with a Bombtech 3 Wood and 4 Hybrid. Shot a 42/41:83 with one birdie(Par 3 chip in)at Babe Zaharias GC in Tampa. Garnered a tie for 2nd place. I wanted to see if the Triton was still as straight as it was back in May( before Cobra F8’s).....and it was! Have a very tight fairway course coming up on Sat and wondered if the Triton was straighter than the Cobra. I believe it is....My Paderson IMRT shaft is an inch shorter than the stock Aldila Rogue making it more accurate for narrow fairways. The Hogan irons were pretty spot on today except for a few chunkie chips.

My wife and I took a mini golf trip this past weekend up to Spokane.  She grew up there, and we visited relatives as well.  We drove up Saturday morning, and since I am doing the SuperSpeed Golf Protocol 3 times a week, I didn't want to take their clubs with me an do it on Sunday.  So, I did the Protocol early on Saturday, got in the car and drove 150 miles.  Not something I want to do again.  Our first round was Saturday at noon, but the Kalispell Golf and Country Club (formerly the Spokane CC) had a delay due to frost, so we didn't tee off until 1:45pm.  It was chilly, but sunny.  Unfortunately, by the 7th hole a cloud went over and it rained hard, then hailed, then the wind blew, then the sun came back out. I could not hit my driver straight; I hit 7 of 12 fairways and only 4 GIR, but managed to salvage the round with my short game.  I shot 42/41 = 83.  The ball was not flying as far as I would have expected even though the elevation is 1500 feet higher than my home course, and the course was wet so not much roll.

We played another round there on Sunday, and I played a little better 41/39 = 80.  I hit 11 of 12 fairways, but only 3 GIR even though I used one club more for most approaches.  However, several misses were on the fringe and puttable.  I had 28 putts.  I managed to birdie both of the greens I hit on the back nine.

Some pics from Sunday's round:

Taking a week off from Arccos and Cobra to get back to basics of figuring out the yardage and what club would be best. Shot 41/41:82 at Par 72 Heritage Harbour GC in Tampa(66.9/109). No Birdies, but had 3 Doubles, 4 Bogeys and 11 Pars! My clubs were: Driver Wilson Staff Triton, 3W Bombtech, 4H Bombtech, Irons Ben Hogan Ptx 4-PW, Wedges Ben Hogan Ft Worth 49/53/57 and Putter Nike Method Drone.

I just wanted to see if I could play well using my “older” clubs and the answer is yes.

Shot good, but it got kinda hot (86)

banged some long drives today, which is always fun-

still love the g400 LSTec...

 

but slow- why do the slow pokes feel the need to be the first group off in the morning? Kinda kills the day for everyone else...

Classic tale of 2 nines day. 43-38 81 and the back nine is generally harder than the front.

A part of it was that we were a 2 some and caught the foursome ahead of us on 3. It was excruciating and the two some behind us didn’t want to join us. They quit after 9 and the two some behind them joined us on 11. That made all the difference in the world. And they were a very nice older couple. We had a blast.

In regards to golf I had a train wreck with my short irons. I don’t know what was going on there.

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

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.
