My muni decided last year to allow 5-somes play because of the men's gangsome.  There are times when they have an odd number of players, so 5-somes are created.  The men's club is not speedy, but on the weekends they aren't the slowest groups either.  However, having seen 5-somes out on the course, many people request a 5-some group because the pro has allowed it in the men's gangsome.  These groups have no business being 5-somes and clog up the course.  I can't imagine a 6-some.  

However, when my wife and I got married, we rented the local 9-hole course for the day and had several large groups out playing. Our group was a 9-some!!  🤣

We used to play 6-somes regularly at Yellowstone Country Club in under 4 hours.  The pro knew who could do that and who couldn't.  All it takes is ready golf and not taking a gazillion practice swings.

Yep. Tried to stretch a 8 iron... should have just took a bit off a 7. Cost me 5 strokes when it was all said and done.

41 after hitting all fairways, 1 GIR, and 15 putts. Had. my daugters boyfriend with me who has never hit a balll  in his life besides mini golf. Gave him a crash course on the lesson mat on the back of hole 11 and hit a couple dozen in to  a net. He did ok alll things considerex. My clubs are a half over and he needs another inch at least. We survived that and a dead cart on hole 12.  He was very humbled at how hard the game is.

78 (par 73)

9/14 fir

10/18 gir 

31 putts

One of the most bizarre rounds I have played in a long time. Shot 43 on front nine and didn’t really hit a bad shot. 3rd hole hit green and it spun 25 yards down a hill. 6th hole landed ball 5 feet right of hole spun into a bunker. Twice had wrong club in my hand and cart was too far away to switch. 🤦‍♂️  Back nine had 3 birdie putts inside 10 feet and 4 more inside 20. Never missed a shot until 16th tee and hit a hosel rocket with an 8 Iron 🤷‍♂️. Actually hit the ball good and just got nothing out of the round.

First time playing this track, it was nice but I couldn't putt to save my life. Had a 295 yd drive with a GW in on the 1st hole and got it to within 4 feet...finished that hole with a 3-putt bodgey.
Here's how close I was to an ace, and did make this one for birdie.

... First time I played golf was at a Chicago Bears outing in 1983 that I attended not to play golf, which I considered a silly easy game for fat people in ridiculous clothes, but I went to meet the Bears players. I parred the first 2 holes with a borrowed persimmon wood and MB irons. It was pretty easy. Saw my partners swinging harder and hitting it farther so I decided to join them. Hit a slice off the golf course on #3 so on text hole it was an easy enough adjustment and I just made sure I turned my hands over just like hitting a line drive to left field. I hooked it far into the woods. The rest of the round was a myriad of a few good shots but many more hooks and slices. I was smitten by the challenge and decided to conquer this game and figured it would take a few weeks, maybe a month. A full year later and still struggling I too was humbled by just how hard this game is.

78 today😡

Level after 8 with 8 FIR and 8 GIR using the Precision Pro NX9 HD for the first time in competition- I was swinging easily at the ball knowing the exact yardage to the pin- putting was awful - 2 putting from 12 feet and 3 putting from longer😡

there then proceeded 3 double bogies from the middle of the fairway (usually coming up short then a chip and 3 putts😡) and 2 bogies again with poor putting.

I would be half decent if I could putt (37 putts)

Confidence is high with the long game but putting is killing me. I think my head is full of spaghetti when it comes to the easiest part of the game 😂

Playing a scratch matchplay tie in the morning so will be focusing on the putting line only, then just hit the damn ball at the hole lol

Pro said I was probably adding loft to my putts, so changing set up tomorrow.

A very symmetrical 44/44 with 8 pars and no birds despite having looks at 3 of them. 3'rd sub-90 round in as many weeks. I could get used to this! 😎

Putting was OK, while scrambling was an A+ since I used my 8i more often than my 60* for more controllable bump-n-runs rather than spraying flop shots with my many near-green missed approaches. Driver was "meh" though with a recent shaft change I "think" it was better on the course. Of course it was a monster on the range, but it seems rare to have that warm-up translate to actual play which is something I gotta figure out...in a hurry! FW's as usual saved my bacon most of the day with 2 fine 7w shots that were, for me, amazing left-to-righters that went flag hunting on both, just a little long.

86 (42/44) with 37 putts including four 3 putts (🤬) and 44% GIR/36% FIR at Hawaii Kai Championship Course. It was my first time playing there and I really enjoyed the layout, but my putting was terrible. I did have some positives to take way from the round though so it wasn’t all bad!

I played with @MattF yesterday and another friend. Played pretty well, but had a few untimely mistakes on the front. Started the back with 5 straight pars, then the skies opened up as we were finishing the 15th hole. We waited out the rain because we were playing well. Maybe we should have packed it in. Limped in with damp gloves, wet grips, and really soggy course. Ended up 45/40 with 8 FIR, 6 GIR, 32 putts, and 2 sand saves.

Lovely day today and my wife and I played alone for the front nine.  We were the first group behind the men's club gangsome.  They actually played fairly fast for them (2 hours on the front), but pace slowed up on the back nine (2.5 hours).  The back nine is shorter par 35.  We picked up a single at the turn. I thought adding another person would slow us down a little so we wouldn't have to wait as much, but we ended up waiting more.  Must have been a lot of quarters riding on the last few holes!!

I shot +1/+5 or 38/40 for a 78 with 2 birdies; one on the #1 handicap hole!!

10/13 fairways but only 5/18 greens

27 putts

I started to lose a little focus on holes 12-15 where I went Double, bogey, bogey, bogey; but I got it back at the end.  The fire off hole #17 where I made birdie...

I may be sparking a trend!! Broke 80 again! I'm hopeful that when the testing begins with the Lynx VTs, I'll continue to see the trend continue or improve.

Played the Raven in PHX for the first time. Tremendously fun and challenging course. Not just a grip n rip course but you have to manage or you'll get beat up. For $30 it's worth flirting with heat stroke. inCollage_20190706_200047411.jpeg0706191934a.jpeg0706191655a.jpeg
