85 (40/45), AGAIN! 38 putts. Worst putting day I’ve had in a couple years. Sad. Could’ve won my flight with an 81. Choked!!! Ugh. Hit the ball better, contact-wise, than yesterday, but could NOT putt. Number 10, on in 2, 15 feet for eagle.... THREE PUTTED.

Finished 3rd in the first flight. Ugh.

Great course, isn't it? 10 and 11 are both fun since they are risk/reward. When I played there in June I hit 5 iron off 11, ended up thinning a wedge over the green. Should have just hit driver like you!

If I lived closer I'm not sure I'd really play anywhere else! And while driver payed off for me on 11, I payed for it on 10 😅 but managed to escape with a bogey.

It was a really fun design, beautifully kept, great conditions. And reasonably priced too! Absolutely no complaints from this guy.

A very poor 85 today... lots and lots of bogeys and only a few pars.  

It was the last day of our Men's Club Championship (I didn't play), and they had the Blue tees ALL the way back; and very tricky pins.  I guess I should be happy that I didn't have any doubles or worse.  

The only highlight today was on the par 5 #13 hole. Pin was back and I had 115y for my 3rd shot; all carry over a large bunker.  Caught my wedge just a little heavy; Hit my 4th shot out of the bunker one roll short of the hole for a rare par today.

I just played 9 holes with a couple of friends after a great day of drinking beer and making stuffed peppers and home made tomato/vegetable juice. The front 9 of my home course is a par 34. I shot 39 with a very bad double bogey on a par 3. I duffed the tee shot.... duffed the next shot ... finally was on the green on the third shot and proceeded to 2 putt...lol.  Oh well. It was a fantastic day spent with my buddies.... and the weather was perfect.

One of those days.   I was solid off the tee but struggled with 100-115 yard shots.  39/48-87 with 3 bogeys on the front and  6 doubles on the back.   C ourse we played today had some elevation changes which is odd for SE Virginia.   Here is the tee shot from 16 and nope I didn't hit the green;  tee shot was short and I ended up with........a double

For some reason I am longer off the tee and about a club longer with my irons since switching golf balls from the ProV1 to the Chrome Soft X.

Interesting! It only rated as "Good" (middle of the road) in the MGS ball test.....

Another short 9 and another +8

Happy enough with that on a not my best ball striking day.

4 pars, 3 bogeys, 1 double and 1 triple

I've gotta keep working on avoiding those "other" score holes - one of which was due to a tee shot pulled left OB. 

Had that 1 penalty, and then 2 x 2-chips and 1 x 3-putt on the very-sloped last hole .. under-read the sidehill break and missed low, then missed the comeback.....

But a fun, little course on a really nice day - especially temperature-wise! - and my wife felt like she made some progress with her swing and game, too .. yea!

It's been a while since I have played as consistently as I have over the past few weeks.  Especially off the tee.  I still fight the occasional hook immediately followed by a "hold-on-for-dear-life-push-block" but nothing unplayable.  I never keep score but always have a good idea where I am in relation to par.  I finished yesterday at +3 with two birdies and five bogeys.

It's fun to play golf when everything is coming out of the middle of the club face.

Played again last night - but only because my wife wanted to go out and practice - she has a club event coming up on Tuesday. I think my back muscle issue has worked it's way out but I was being overly cautious so I was not hitting the ball long and not rotating at the finish. Going to give those back muscles a bit more time to heal.

Strange morning, hit some really good shots and some pretty poor ones also. 44 which at this point is all I can expect. Still only 9 but I’m ready to start 18 next week. Putting was lights out.
Supposed to get some rain, yuck

Yes sir.  About a 5 minute drive from work so it's great for an evening range session or to squeeze in a quick 9.

Time to get away from the range!

Early to rise round today, I hit the first tee at 6:19 AM. I did consume large amounts of coffee first!

This was my first full round in over three weeks.  I overcame a fairly. strong muscle pull that took weeks to settle down and, in terms of my golf, a fully new approach to my 6i, as I bored many of you with too much detail!

Course is rated 65/105, 5300 yards played from the senior tees. Par is 72 My HCP remains a 18.

This course has a bit of lack of forgiveness due to the fairly narrow width of its fairways. 25% were FIR but I hit 3 OB off of drives. 

I should have add this to make it clear. OBs are tight on this course and none was out by more than 1 foot. So OB. but not lost, only lost shots on the card. I play a red ball so readily seen in the primarily dirt OB.

 Damned "lucky" I know.  One hit a tree and almost came back in. I readily could have been dishonest and played the OB with am sneaky foot wedge and pretended they were not OB; but I play too damned honest of a game. All 3 were significantly longer than "hitting 3". All 3 went out left and were the result of my poorly aimed feet.

I landed in sand on 6 holes, mainly from not playing the course well in terms of planning. I could have gone for a lay up on 4 of them by playing a different club.  The remaining shots did well and made for easy carry to green or near green. I thought I chose a correct lay up approach on the "lay it up" shots, only to have a different carry than I expected.

Putting made up for less than wonderful results getting to the green. 32 total with 6 one putts, 2 three putts (with both including a rim out), and the rest 2 Putts. 32 putts in total and this included a high for me in 1 putts.

I tried my best not to force my play by over hitting the clubs. In that area, it felt good.

 But I did not "play" the course very well, especially on the two most pronounced dog legs, and there was a bit of marching in my round ("left, right, left, right").

All in all my 94 fit good after my lay off.  I finished the round before the temp hit 90º and, I played the round using the same ball, first time this year.  I did hit a ball into the water by about 1/4" but I played it out of the wet and almost greened it from 160 yards out! That was my best, or best unexpected shot, of the day.
