Update: no 350 yard drives. I shot a 43 and he shot a 45. Putting was terrible we both 3 pitted on 3 different holes. I did have a birdie, but this is what we were looking at towards the last 4 holes

That picture defines why we moved to FL 6.5 years ago.

War Dept had a thought about going to CT for a week this Christmas......NO, God created FaceTime just for this reason!!!

It was a day for a golf marathon. Played round 1 at Grand Cypress New Course in our first round of alternate shot format. Let’s just say it’s frustrating when you rip a drive down the middle and give your partner a simple 110 yard wedge in and he chunks it and dunks it in the moat right in front of the green. Ah well, might as well get the triple bogey out of the way on the first hole. But I will say that he redeemed himself on the 2nd hole by stiffing a wedge to within a foot for a tap in birdie. We ended up shooting 92 and are T30 out of 33 teams. At least we’re not dead last. We have tomorrow to make it respectable.

So we finished at noon, had some lunch and decided to trek over to Orange County National where we played the Crooked Cat course. And in the interest of full disclosure, the tips are around 7,500 yards and I just laughed. Um, no. So the next tees up are 7,000. Uh, please no. So the next tees up are 6,500. Ok, now we’re talking.

So I ripped a drive down the middle on the 480 yard par 5 first hole and had 210 in. So I pulled hybrid and put it pin high to about 20 feet and drained the putt for only my 10th eagle ever. What an exciting way to start the round. Here’s my scorecard.

Played my first round with my new Mizuno MP18 MMCs and Hogan TK wedges. Hadn’t been able to play for 3 weeks due to work and an unfortunate bout of gastroenteritis.

Really solid to start, 1 over after 8, greens were slow after a minor tining but rolled ok.
Very happy with the new irons, other than a couple of very poor swings they’re very forgiving and I love the ball flight.
Ended up playing to my 9 handicap with a couple of very soft doubles after leaving it in the bunker

Just got back from my first round in 6 weeks. Went 48-42 for 90. Would've been ok, but it was a tight little exec. with par 62. (Actually, it put me right on my handicap.) 5 penalties.

They had been closed for 6 months to refurbish their greens and tee boxes. I couldn't get any sense of speed at all on the greens. 43 putts.

I did manage a 5 hole run of pars, with one that should have been a birdie. Just lipped the birdie putt out.

It was just nice to get a chance to play again after such a long layoff.

My wife and I had a 10am tee time today.  It was 28º and cloudy, but the sun was supposed to come out by noon.  They lied.  

We took our cart cover that we bought 2 years ago that fits the Yamaha rentals, but we have no heater.  The guy in the pro shop said that two groups were about 30 minutes ahead of us and no one has a tee time behind us.  It started snowing.  Only a few flakes so we headed to the first tee.  I was cold.  We decided to play the first two holes, then decide if we would continue since the 2nd green was by the parking lot.  It stopped snowing, so we continued on.  I took this picture from in front of the #3 green looking across the pond back down the fairway.  

IMG_0991.jpg.80571632bcc8aea0cb8279030d7e42f8.jpg

The pond was frozen... so were the greens.  I made a mistake and landed my ball on the front of the 40 yard deep #5 green; went off the back.  We finished the front nine and called it quits.  I hit the ball pretty well, but there was no way to score today.  Riding in a cart, even with a cover, is colder than I remember in years past.  

We have a 10am tee time for tomorrow, but I think I'll walk; much easier to stay warm.

You can get a cart heater for about $50. at any big box store, however, at some point you have to get out and hit the ball which at that temp is not a pleasant experience. At that temp, I prefer staying home and practicing in my warm basement. 😎

Well, we headed to the course this morning for our 9:54am tee time.  I didn't really want to go after playing those 9 holes yesterday, but my wife made me! 😁  It was 32º, high clouds with some sun peeking through, and no wind.  When we finished, it had warmed up to 35º.  We played with another couple that we play with often.  Yesterday my wife thought she would walk because I said that you stay warmer walking, but she crapped out on me so we rode in the cart again.  My feet were cold yesterday wearing my golf shoes, so today I wore my Merrell hiking boots.  Good call!!  Much warmer.

The greens were still frozen underneath the top layer which was starting to thaw when the sun came out.  I played every approach shot to just short of the green no matter where the pin was, and flighted the ball down... bounce up and roll.  I learned this technique many years ago when I started playing from a bunch of old guys; they played this way all year long, not just in winter.  Now I'm one of the old guys!!

I bogeyed the first hole, parred holes 2-8, and doubled #9 drowning a ball in the pond; shot a +3 front nine.  The most interesting shot was on the par 3 #4 hole; elevated tee, pin behind a bunker playing 138y.  Land it on the green and it goes off the back at 160y.  I played my shot to the right of the green to miss the bunker, landing on the side of the mounds and my ball came down to the fringe pin-high.  Easy par.

I bogeyed #10, parred #11, and birdied #12, an 8 footer.  Then missed birdie putts on 13, 14, and 17.  Bogeyed #15, and scrambled for par on #16.  Ended my round with a birdie on my nemesis hole #18, a 25 foot bomb!   An even par back nine.

This round of 75 was the best round of 2018 for me.  I did not drive the ball particularly well, but I hit 12 GIR which is 7 more than normal this year.

Front started out painful for me. Had a couple OB/Water shots. Was finally able to get it all working on the back. Hit all Par 3's in reg. 40% GIR

Actually, it was an Apple software engineer, Roberto Garcia.  But maybe God told him how to do it... like "Right!... What's a cubit?"  Or I suppose it could have come from ancient aliens.

The scores were inconsequential, both rounds were played on the Saddlebrook Resort Palmer course (Wesley Chapel, FL) with most of the morning round played in a light rain. What was important was that we had fun. We enjoyed the battle in the elements. We were the only golfers on the course for about 3 hours.

Golfspy Barbajo you make golf fun even when it’s horribly played.
