How'd you play?

Overcast in the low 70’s warming to 79* today. Decided to try an experiment. Played my PowerBilt set today as follows: Air Force One Driver, 3W, 5W, 3H, 4-SW with Apollo graphite shafts. Topped off with my SC Kombi. These clubs have been in my garage for about 8 years unused. I regripped them with Lamkins about 2 years ago but did not play them. My driver has a Winn grip that pretty much fell apart in my hands, but boy howdy could I hit it. 10 - 15 yards farther than my Cobra F8......isn’t that amazing? The irons are standard lie, and I need 2* Flat so I choked up about an inch to hit them....Three approach shots landed inside 3’ of the Pin. Prob won’t keep playing them but it was fun today. Think I’ll regrip the Driver and try them tomorrow. BTW, I shot a 42/45:87.

40 degrees today but no wind so could play in a compression top and jumper.

Hit the ball pretty well but still shot 82...........my short game is pretty poor this time of year.

Spoke to the pro and signed up for 6 lessons as he is a Driver and wedge expert and hits the ball like I can only dream of 😏

Today felt REALLY good! I had a 366 yard drive and a couple other 300+ yard drives today.

The new iron set up is working beautifully. Just need to dial in the distances a bit more.

Had an amazingly beautiful flop shot over 3 pine trees and stuck it on the green to save par. A lot of luck involved on that one!

Today was my first day playing since mid October. It wasn’t pretty. Somehow I’ve developed a monster draw/hook. I’ve always been a fade player and now don’t know what to do. Hopefully it was some fluke because tomorrow I have an actual game.

The club had a 2 hour frost delay today.  My wife and I had a 10am tee time, but they started everyone at 10:30 with a shotgun, so we didn't have to wait.  Started on #7.  I drove the ball really well until we got back to #1, then missed 3 of the last 5 fairways.  Only one birdie... on #2.  Shot 78 that included a double bogey and bogey on our last two holes... both par 5's.  UGH!!!

+1 for 9 on our little TFT executive course. Beautiful day, but it was a wet, sloppy mess. I was pretty wild, but my short game was filthy today. 4 of those five pars were up-n-downs. Should have been even, but a putt hit the flag and lipped out. 

Played the last three holes with a guy wearing two gloves and another in shorts and a hoodie pulled tight over his head. Muni golf is the best.

Played today - course was ridiculously wet for December. Weather was spectacular. After a brief discussion our group determined that we would leave the pin in. I will say that it didn’t take long to get used to it. I can’t say for certain but there’s a chance that I got big help from it and n my birdie putt on 18. Also I had great pace on my long putts all day. I attribute that to always having the pin it. Sometimes in the past I would forgo the tend - being able to see makes a big difference.

 

Oh yeah, shot 76.

Oops - that’s what happens when i take a week off! :)

That also makes it worse - it normally gets drier and drier here from November until lat April.

BTW my Streamsong round got rained out.

Got out today in 43 degrees after a day of rain. Sloppy wet mess, temporary greens in fairways but I was the only guy out there. I played 3 balls and here are my takeaways: ball compression doesn’t matter in cold weather and making all my wedges 36 inches long was a really good decision for me.

Woo-hoo!!! We finally got some sun today, and it hit 70*, so I drove 45 min to go play 9 on a course that drains exceptionally well, Black Bear Golf Course in Delhi, LA. I shot 39 with one birdie. Putting held me back from 2 others... Mostly finding the line was the issue. I hit the GMax twice over 270 into the wind, so that was fun!!!

Played pretty good today. Had almost everything working. Hit my SW super fat on 9 and lipped out the bogey putt to break 40.

After a good day yesterday, today was miserable.  One birdie and 3 pars for 11 holes.  Although it was 44º, the wind just  made it cold.  I never got warm, and the swing wasn't there.  My wife's hip started hurting and she cried "uncle", so we left the other couple we were playing with because the 11th green is next to the parking lot.  Once you cross the street to the 12th tee, the course runs away from the clubhouse and you are committed to finish the back nine.

Tomorrow is my walking day with guys at the club; same temp and wind but  it will be warmer walking instead of riding.

when I get cold in the wind I try and run up a couple of our smaller hills while pushing my clubs- warms me up for the next few holes.

Went out Sunday afternoon solo and met up with another member who moved to Tampa from Colorado. Still gaming the PowerBilts so I experimented with different shots. Pulled the irons all day. Shot a 47/47:94 with 2 balls in the water. Putted with Pin in for long putts. Tried 2 PB drivers and the PB AFO WMD won! It was 5 to 10 yards longer with medium flight. May try a mixed bag tomorrow, PB woods and Cobra irons.

Back to my usual self rocking a 103 on Sunday in a sloppy wet mess, but it was a gorgeous day. I didn't have time to warm up and just never really found my iron swing. I was first off with 3 other guys, two of which started sipping SoCo at 8am..by the 18th it had become an...interesting round at best...

I was content with my round yesterday, 43/39:82. The round included a quad and a double so all in all it wasn’t that bad. Those bad holes were the result of me trying to get a little extra out if a few iron shots.
