GBW, I'm sorry, though I've golfed in a lot of places, I've never been to Panama. Sounds like a fantastic time!!

 

Have fun and good luck on the links!

Well, I broke 80 for the first time this season and I did it from the Men's tees(white)!

 

Yippeeeeee :lol:

 

I had a 78 and I played with Richard's brother, Greg, and his friend, Dave, and my best friend Michelle.

 

Greg and Dave played from the blacks and Michelle the women's(red)

 

Probably 60% of my rounds are from the whites because I feel that helps me when I play in the Ladies' tournaments.

 

It was fun to be in the fairway and to make some putts, lol

 

Well, have a great week!

Escaped with an 89 at Hidden Valley Golf Club (2011 National Golf Course of the Year) ... www.hiddenvalleygolf.com.

 

Great course, some tough holes, but definitely playable for a wide range of golfers.

It looks absolutely beautiful Moecat!

 

Do they have red tees set up so a woman can play an enjoyable round, or do they just put them at the front of the box that has the men's tees in it?

 

It is gorgeous!

They actually do put the forward tees quite a ways up to accommodate all sorts of players.

I'm so off right now, just can't get things to flow at all! Only silver lining is that my best rounds of the year have happened in competition and I have another competitive round Thurs.

 

I can find my swing on the range, just can't get it to the course!

Well, the wheels fell off in a most horrible fashion yesterday.

 

Was playing in a 4-ball cup match on a course I know well and have scored on before. Played TERRIBLE. I went through my first sleeve of balls in 6 holes and didn't find my first par until 8. My partner was playing well and our opponents were playing badly so we were bouncing around between 1 and 2 up, I was just trying to stay out of my partners way and find SOMETHING.

 

I parred 10 and birdied 11, I figured things were turning around. My partner was faltering a bit, probably from all the weight on his back from carrying around a guy with a 4 stroke better handicap than himself. We go into 17 1 up, a long par 4 uphill and into the wind. I hit a decent tee ball, just off the fairway. Hit a bad 2nd to just short of the green, chip to about 12 feet and hit a terrible put to about 2' short. Amazingly, I have a bogey putt to tie. Which I promptly yank and miss the hole by 2" left.

 

So, we're even going into 18 and they have the box. First guy yanks his left into heavy gunch, 2nd guy hits his wide right, possibly out of bounds. My partner and I hit ours within 15' of each other just off the fairway in the right rough. We spot our balls and go over to help them find the guy on the left, they found him before we got there, we pull back to our balls and my partner gets out and looks at the shorter ball and checks the distance declares that we're 215 to center, says "I know what I've gotta hit", pulls his hybrid and then goes over to the right to search for our opponent's ball, which he finds about 25 yards up. In the meantime, guy on the left has skanked one leaving it in the gunch, then chopped another one out into the fairway. My partner is standing by the ball on the right to show them where it is and I decide that since we are both out, I might as well hit. So I got to the deeper ball and hit it (poorly, but was near the green). My partner walks back and as he's addressing his ball stops, looks down and says the worst words I've ever heard on a golf course. "This is a Taylor Made!" It was MY BALL!! I felt like I'd been punched in the gut and a day later STILL can't believe it. Play like ass all damn day, somehow my partner manages to carry me around the course and I not only miss a two footer to lose the lead but then hit the wrong ball to lose the match!

 

I freaking hate this game right now.

I've been gone from MGS this week and missed everyone here tremendously. Very tough week, it culminated in the resignation of our Day School principal - so guess who is the acting principal at this point. :(

 

I played today though - this afternoon - St. Pete Country Club - great old, classic, southern course, it hosts one of the oldest amateur tournaments in the country - the tournament has been one by any number of different guys who've gone on to win on tour.

 

This was my first round with the Mizunos fully bagged.

 

I shot 38-35, 73

 

I saved my round on 1 quite frankly, hit a skanky drive, left myself 215 to the back right pin on a hole when I normally have a short to mid iron - played so smart - 3 wood a bit left of the green to leave an angle for my pitch, hit a reasonable pitch and holed a 5 footer for par - it just put me in such a positive frame of mind!

 

Rolled in a 40 footer for birdie on 4 and hit so many good chips, pitches and sand shots.

Played yesterday with two other guys I'm working with out here. They played 2 person scramble versus me by myself. I was 2 up going into #7 and blew up 7 and 8 before winning on the 9th with a 44. I played the same 9 later in the day again with one of the guys and shot 41 with two disappointing doubles and a very easy missed birdie putt. Scores are coming down as I'm slowly starting to hit more greens, and my putting made a 180 last week when I switched to a version of the claw grip. Now my putting is dead on (except from 30+ feet, in which case I'm disappointed about half the time). I've also started getting some crazy distance on my irons. I actually hit a few 180yd 7 irons in a crosswind. I think it's time to chop a half inch off the tips of the shafts to reign them in and gain some accuracy... I WILL break 80 soon.

I played with a few guys from work on Saturday. I'm going through a divorce after 27 years of marriage. They thought keeping a full beer in my hands was a good thing. It was, except........... it does nothing for a good score... lol.

 

I ended up shooting an 85. Not that that is a terrible score, but I usually keep it in the high 70's to low 80's on my home course. I never could play and drink. :D

I brought both the Mizuno MP-62s and the W/S FG Tour V2s on my trip. Lately I've been playing the FG Tours more. The Wilsons feel better, though the stiffer shafts in the Mizunos made them feel more accurate. Both have been pretty long though. I don't know if it's the heat, but with the 80% humidity I'm wondering how much the net effect really is.

 

Today was a pretty good day out there too. Shot 84 with three doubles and a triple. The putter was money again today, which feels great! I still need to hit more greens, and most importantly, limit the blow-up holes.

For starters sorry about the divorce. For seconders sometimes golf is used for things other than shooting a good score - that's what makes it a great game and for thirders Golf Digest once did a study on the effects of alcohol on the golf game - I'm sure its not a study that is likely to be repeated given the political climate about the effects of alcohol, tobocco or anything else deemed a vise on anything - at any rate it found that many golfers improve after drinking a beer and improve even more after the second beer - after that however its downhill rather quickly. ;) :blink:

Played with a new golf buddy I have given lessons to. First time I have played with him that was not a playing lesson. Awesome time but the winds were brutal ( rover Rick they really were bad 30+ gusts. 20mph constant). Not TX strength but it was cold and on a mountain. Shot 86 with 2 ob balls. Putting was great, distance control not.

Walked 18 with my 9 year old son yesterday. The kid has stamina :D. He can also flush his driver every time. Once he gets his putting and short game in order he's going to start kicking ass.

 

First time I've played this course from the blues and shot 90. I couldn't putt or chip for the life of me and definitely left a lot of shots on the table. My scorecard showed 76% of fairways hit and yet only 33% of GIR, bleh. Averaged 2.33 putts per GIR, bleh x2. I blame it on the 20+ mph winds we were having, the gusts were really bad.

 

Had my first legitimate eagle attempt though. This par 5 plays at first uphill, then downhill. Hit my driver (uphill) a good 270 yards with a little help from the wind, then mishit my second shot, but was just 10 yards short of the green. Unfortunately I couldn't chip in or even chip close, so I took par.

 

My other shot was a downhill par 3, 200 yards. Wind was to my back and you don't want to go long on this hole. I hit a perfect 6 iron draw that hit short of the green and rolled 10 yards past the hole :D. I missed my birdie putt, but saying I hit a 6i 200+ yards still made my day :D

Played 18 holes yesterday afternoon at my local course, and shot 98. This is only one shot of my best, and I felt like I was playing quite crappy.

 

It has been a month since my last round, and the lack of short game practice showed very clearly. Took way, way too many putts and short game shots.

 

This round could easily have been around the 90 mark, or just below, had my short game been sharper.

 

This gives me plenty of hope in my quest to go sub 90 though, and I'll be practicing my short game diligently.

No-one will ever have golf under his thumb. No round ever will be so good it could not have been better. Perhaps this is why golf is the greatest of games. You are not playing a human adversary; you are playing a game. You are playing old man par.

I played Brackenridge with my Tuesday golf league yesterday. I won the long drive hole (315 with a Callaway Hyper-X), the closest to the pin (17 inches away 122 yard with a Gap Wedge 47°). I managed to birdie both of those holes but had a triple bogie on another one. You know what they say “A man's got to take a lot of punishment to write a really funny book”. As if my game wasn't enough I wore my Boo Weekly camo golf shirt today. Yes, no quarter was given.
