One silver lining I guess I can take away, is that as my handicap is dropping is that I now consider 94  a "disappointing" round for me. where as at the beginning of he year, I was happy with a 94. 

Feel bad for "loving" a post about a bad round, but love this last sentence. I'm in the same boat with my scores lately - some disappointing ones that would have been big wins in April. Keep chipping away. Things will click again in no time.

How can I simply forget how to swing a golf club in less than 12 hours.   

I hear ya! Just gotta keep the short memory and the longer term trend in the right direction, but man is it testing on some days. My last two rounds have been a 77 and then 89. Working shots in both directions and firing at pins one day, and two-way misses and 4 tee shots OB a few days later. WTF! Two rounds coming up this weekend though, so on to the next...

How can I simply forget how to swing a golf club in less than 12 hours.   Followed up last nights decent league 9 hole round, with a very disappointing 94 today, from tees that were roughly 300 yards closer.  Two of my strengths this year, driver accuracy and wedge play seemed to take the day off after working the night shift last night.   After a par/bogey start I went Double from 115 yards out, then Triple from 105 yards out.   it was mostly up and down from there.  
We did putt on freshly aerated greens--Tuesday--for the front nine, so that didn't help much, but it certainly isn't to be blamed for the poor wedge play. 
One silver lining I guess I can take away, is that as my handicap is dropping is that I now consider 94  a "disappointing" round for me. where as at the beginning of he year, I was happy with a 94.

New revision was yesterday and I went up to a 2.

The 5 strokes is most I have probably ever received.

Played Moore Golf and Athletic Club today - I'm not a member but as a perspective one they let you play once. I played the tips (6758) in 105* heat but had the course basically to myself. It's a good course with a couple par 3's of 230+, a drivable par 4, good bunker ing, some good risk/reward holes and good greens. Played really well except for a silly bogey on 18 from the middle of the fairway from 147 yards... And I had just made a great par save on 17. Besides that I played really well and for the most part controlled my golf ball and met some great guys.

*Disclaimer: I am happy with bogey golf. 

Driver was bombing it but 3 bogeys was the best that came of it.  

1 FIR, 0 greenies, one ball OB, 4-three putts and a 53 on the front nine later and I’m reminded of why it’s called golf for my worst scoring round of the summer.  My irons hit snap hooks allllll day long out of the middle of the clubface.   And wedges were carrying10-15 yards long.  

Funniest bit, I didn’t lose my ball until the 9th tee shot. 🤷‍♂️. But the best part is, I got to play golf today. 

That last sentence is the key.  A bad day on the course is better than a good day at the office. 😎

Last night was my weekly 9 hole, co-worker scramble.  We don't actually competing or anything, just out there to have fun.  My driving was the highlight hitting 3 of the 6 fairways and another drive being fairway distance but just drifted a bit into the trees.  I almost made it the whole round using the same ball until I hooked my drive on #8 into the woods.  I just recently graduated myself from playing Wilson Duo Softs to urethane covered balls and I have definitely noticed a difference.  I hit an 8 iron on a par 3 drive, and it hit the green and bounced about a foot and stopped.  The Duo probably would have hit and rolled near the back of the green. I should have clubbed up to the 7 iron as I was still quite a bit short of the hole, but anytime I get to use my divot tool is a bonus.  😁

I am in complete agreement with this statement - it's kind of a matter of pride to GET to fix a divot that I created. It makes me wonder why muni greens have so many divots. Apparently others don't feel the same way we do.

Apparently not.  When I went to check in I noticed a sign on the counter asking players to repair at least 2 divots when they reach the greens.  I forgot all about it while I was playing, but I did fix my own at least.  All the guys I play with fix their own divots too, and one guy fixes one every time whether it's his or not.

When I walk onto a green my Divot Tool is ready to go wether it’s mine or anyone else’s. I hate unfixed divots !!

I usually forget to carry mine because I so rarely leave divots.  I need to start dropping it in my pocket first thing before I get going.  I like my greens nice and smooth too.

Was having an awesome round, we were first group on after a 2 hour lightning delay so had no one in front of us. We finished the front 9 in 1:10 and I was +5, on hole 11 we caught a group and it took us 2:30 to play the last 8 holes. Finished with an 88... The back 9 is where I usually score low. Missed a Hole in 1 by this much. I put my foot next to the hole and the ball was at the back of my instep.

Senior scramble today.  I hit my irons good today.  Not sure how I was putting as we had a string of 8 or so holes where I never had to putt.  We shot 11 under gross (and had a bogie and made a par on one of the par 5 holes).  Only had one eagle putt and we missed that one.  Still gun shy with my driver, but hit the hybrids well (my 3 hybrid was the shot that setup the eagle putt (15 feet or so).
