Allie and I finished second in our flight today at the First Tee 2-Person tournament, and she was the youngest person in our flight by about 20 years.

Not going hole by hole, but got out for an impromptu 18 hole round this morning.  Must of been still asleep because I couldn't hit an approach shot to save my life🤦‍♂️. Couple that with a bulky putter and that resulted in a 91 with a three hole stretch where I went double, double, double😡🤬.  Went to the practice green a couple of hours later and low and behold, chips had came back with great distance control (even hold out a few with the Cleveland RTX 4 wedges I'm testing),  putts were dropping left and right and I'm left scratching my head trying to figure out what went wrong this AM...

Just shot a 54 on the front, and a 38 on the back.

Back 9 was the best golf I have ever put together. Maybe not the best score, but the best I’ve ever played.

Hit the flagstick from 133 with a 9 iron on a par 3, it went straight down and bounded out of the hole!!!

All while using a Callaway Superhot 55 ball I found on the 7th hole.

A double, bogey, bogey finishing 9 with 15mph winds ruined a record day...

But man, what can I say it was amazing.

That’s cool! Days like today are what makes you keep coming back

- 43/40 = 83 (+11)  

- 5/15 FIR  

- 8/18 GIR (0 birdies)

- 37 Putts (4 3-putts, 12 2-putts, 1 1-putt, 1 0-putt) 

- 2:45 Round Time

One of those rounds where I honestly lost track of the score and was surprised once The Grint app added it all up. It was a very shaky day from 125 and in. Left approaches short of the green on several holes. Putting was not good. 

Irons were easily the best part of my game today, long irons especially, so that was today's saving grace. It's been a while since I was happy with my iron play after a round.

Highlight of the round was hole No. 3, a 525-yard par 5. I smashed my drive 264 yards in the center of the fairway, and hit a great six iron 60 yards short of the green with a perfect view of the pin on the middle back upslope. Grabbed my 54 degree wedge, dropped the ball about 20 feet short of the pin, it took a big hop and the rolled up and in for eagle! Not my first eagle, but it was my first ever eagle from the fairway. Very awesome feeling.

Good for you!!

Also, drove by Western Greens and saw you've played a few rounds there on The Grint. How do you like it? Those rates are dirt cheap, definitely have me interested in trying them out

Played Kickingbird today with a heat index of 112 and humidity set on hell. I struggled on the front - bogeyed 7 and doubled 8. On seven I came up short on my approach and my ball came up to the collar of the bunker - I had to turn the club up on its toe and chip across my feet. Hit it well but no ability to hit it at the hole or get it close - two-putt bogey. Hit my second shot into the water on 8 and played my fourth from the drop area - almost holed it out for a four but it rolled to about 12 feet and I two-putted for double. Birdied 9 to shoot 2 over on the front. Shot 32 (3 birdies/ no bogeys) on the back for a 69. Felt mostly hard today except for 2 3/4 pitching wedges for birdies on the back - one from 98, the other from 102 - the Blueprint PW is so, so good.

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. 

Take it easy!!  Don't rush a bad back.

Best of luck for your wife tomorrow!!!!

The owner is working really hard on improving the course. It's old (1960s) and was not maintained terribly well until recently. Drainage is the main issue, but once July hit the course really improved. I've grown to like it a lot because there are a few holes that can be really challenging.

If you are accurate with your driver, most holes will be driver, wedge as it's not long from the back tees (6,300ish yards).

I'd put it in the middle tier of courses that I've played around GR. Falls at BC, The Links at Bowen Lake, Meadows, Saskatoon, Diamond Springs, Pigeon Creek are all in better shape and better courses. But it's definitely better than say, Gracewil, the Pheasant in Borculo, Lincoln CC and Morrison Lake in my opinion. Easily worth the money.

It's all tree-lined and will punish people who don't hit it straight. During busy times play can get pretty slow as a result.

Thanks for the insight, I'll definitely check it out before the end of the season!

She put the ball in play when I couldn't, and she made every putt for our team.  Seriously.  Anytime I got to putt, I missed.

all over the place yesterday- 78 hacks around the course, thins, HUGE fats, pulls, low snap hooks off the tee.

Unbelievably my short game kept me at just 2 over after 9, but you can only keep that going for so long. 

You know that way when you absolutely know what you are doing wrong, but just cant change it from the top of the swing? 🙄

Tomorrow is another day and after a few youtube videos with drills to 'fix' my known issue, I will attempt to focus properly tomorrow.

The game is no fun when you are trying a 'fix' on every shot 😂

what a difference a day makes!...and some youtube focus😉

The youtube video @jlukes posted about using the ground properly with the trail foot has enabled my hips to turn naturally as opposed to the forced spinning I was doing. It was a joy playing again, thanks jlukes.

Every club in the bag was a proper solid strike (the way I used to do it lol) which gave me a relatively comfortable 73. I did have a double and a bogie which came from the 'old' turn which gave me a pull hook into big trouble, but most Tee shots were past my single handicap partners by some margin.
