@pulledabillI love playing Shadow Hills.

It is special for the Willamette Valley thats for sure. Played Ilahee last week and I think I liked Shadow better overall.

Yep...on my bucket list.  Was going to play it last time I was in the area, but it rained the entire time.

I took today off to play 18 this morning, but I probably should have just gone to work with the way I played.

49/48 for a 97. Miserable play all around. Practice green was really quick this morning, the actual greens no so much, so round started with leaving everything short and ended with blowing everything by the hole by a mile. 39 putts. Had multiple chips that went nowhere. Skulled a handful of wedges and irons. Pulled everything left with my 54 degree, which I usually am accurate with. Two-way miss with the driver, either a pull left or a high, weak fade short and right. Can't do that on my home course because it's all tree-lined. 

On a high note I am now quite adept at the 5 iron stinger with draw to get out from behind and around trees. Must have hit at least five of those today.

Tried to enjoy the walk this morning, but this was a tough pill to swallow after having two really good range sessions in a row. Oh well.

Bugged out of work at lunch and hit the course at 12.30. Birdied the first hole with a 60+ foot putt, so things started well until the 6th when tragedy struck. Mishit my drive, then looked at the driver...I don't think this should have happened even with a shot to the toe. I'll be calling TMaG today to see what's what.

So, I ended up using 3 off the tee the rest of the round and found the fairway more often than not. Ended up it a 47/43, which is my best yet at the course.

Congrats on having a big enough swing speed to .. crush 😆 .. your driver!

Ha but seriously, congrats on your PB at your course! 👍

Played 9 the other day and it was one of those, oh you know!, good .. then slipping .. then BAD .. then so-so .. then finished up ok rounds.

Nice par to open - solid tee shot, solid second shot to just off the back of the green, and a good 2 putt. 2nd hole another really solid tee shot, but then a duffed 40 yd pitch led to a bogey. 3rd hole ok tee shot but pulled the second way left .. 3 to get on and then, grrrr, 3-putted. 4th hole was - yep - the blow-up hole (gory details omitted!). 

Skip to the last hole - a short Par 3 over a pond plus a service road behind .. this hole often "gets in my head" with a resulting splash.... But this time hit it high and straight right towards the flag and ended about 5 ft below the flag. No, did not make the birdie putt.... 😞

Oh, tried the new MaxFli Tour - in Hi Vis Matte Green - these balls are legit! I've been taking lessons and my swing is improving but I think I have to give partial credit on the good tee shots to the ball!

Well it IS an important skill to have! I use my 4H a lot for those situations and it has helped me with some good escapes.

I actually pulled off a ridiculously stupid one on the fourth hole. 115 yards out from the green. Only chance of getting to the green was to start right of one tree and draw left of the tree 20 yards ahead. Hit the 5 iron perfectly, sliced through the window, and ended up on the back fringe. 

Nine times out of ten that shot hits the first or second tree, and I'm in more trouble than when I started...

Played in league tonight - last round of the first half, we are tied for first with the team we are playing but slightly behind in points.

Thanks I’m playing the A spot and we start on a 173 yard uphill par 3. My opponent gets it on the front 45 feet away, I hit it to 30 feet pin high left. He knocks his first putt 8 feet past I hit mine 3 feet short. He knocks the next one 2 and a half feet by. I tell him to pick it up and calmly roll my 3 footer in.

My playing partner goes, “Why did you give him that?” I said, “Hey we’re A players, we don’t miss 2 and a half footers straight in uphill.” And we are good sportsmen.

I had the tee from there, never missed a fairway and went on to win 8 holes and tie one - 10.5 to .5. My opponent got tired of 245 down the middle before he had even hit.

Needless to say we won the first half of the season as a team. :)

you know that old song about the wheels on the bus going round and round ??
well, the wheels start off round....turned oblong....and then just plain ole fell off.
85 on a tight course where if you miss too far one way or the other (left/right/short/long) you may as well reach into the bag for a new ball.
the shame of it is, post round I can think of at least 5 shots that I hit the ball well, but it flew longer than I expected and cost me 5 strokes.
...I can understand being upset when slicing/hooking/topping/fatting but when you hit it well and it still costs you strokes that is maddening.  


I watched the round unfold Stroker. I log into the Grint and it says there is a live round going on. I click on it and you were on 16. Solid front but what happened on 10? Not gonna lie, I felt kinda creepy watching the round but I didn’t even know the Grint did that so I had to check it out.

Played 36 at the Bay course at Seaview in Jersey today. 87 and an 83 in very windy conditions. Last time there I shot a 77 but today is where my game has been lately.

Don't you just love it when the part of the game you struggle with changes weekly?

Yesterday I got off the tee pretty well - I only sprayed one ball OB, the rest were all playable, which is great, but I started pulling my irons badly yesterday, like 20-30 yards pulled with dead straight ball flight.

Chipping was pretty sketchy and it was the worst putting day so far this season. The greens were quite a bit faster last night and I was playing too much break and/or pounding the ball through the break. I ended up with three 3-putts as a result.

Pace of play was brutal last night, too. We were badgering the first group pretty badly and they were oblivious - they tried to claim they were waiting the whole time but we saw them lose touch with the group ahead of them on the 4th hole.

Still, it was fun time.

wind was HOWLING yesterday in the burbs during league play.... some holes at least a 2 club wind.... short par 3's I had no clue what to do... choke down, way down, on a 5i for a 120 yard shot?  Flight a wedge?

Even with all that my partner and I managed -5 for 9 holes for a nice 30 and opened an 8 stroke lead after the second week of play.

Had 5 birdies in a row.... it was a good day. 😎
