Quick 9 yesterday...awful putting day. It was actually amusing after the third hole when I realized I had zero touch. I took my own advice from a drill I shared here a few days ago and started to putt to an area of the hole for my makable putts inside 12’. I was essentially lag-putting everything.

I had 17 total putts for a 39 on an otherwise fantastic ball striking day.

After six years of playing, I got my first hole in one yesterday! Pretty crazy feeling to see the ball drop from the tee box. It was a slight downhill par 3 from 150 yards, got it done with a 9 iron!

45
4/7 fairways
1/9 greens
15 putts

I couldn't hit driver today worth anything, everything was off the toe and short. Hit a couple that caught the ground before the ball, but fortunately my putter saved my round. Screenshot_20190903-153630.jpeg
I probably shouldn't mention how good the putter was because putters are fickle little beasts that will come back and bite you, but it's the best handicap Arccos has ever recorded with it. Heck, I didn't have a three putt.

I spent the round experimenting with the set wedges and while they did ok, I really missed my 56 and 60.

41/42 (83) with a double bogey on both sides.  Our course just went through a huge 5 day match play championship that beat up the course pretty good.  Filled a lot of divots and repaired a lot of ball marks that my group didn't make.  Course was hard and the greens were hard/fast.  I putted okay, but missed several that I easily could have made.

After 10 or so minutes with driver, 3h. and 6i, I was off to a quick 9 hole before Satan arrived to heat things up.

Hit a fair 45, with 4 strokes due to penalty (OB and a splasher) and a rather comical sand trap event.  My true amateur nature came through on that one!

16 putts, 5 FIR, 3 GIR. Average with the driver was 200+, hybrids played well.

Big take away is that I rushed myself the last few holes to finish before the furnace kicked in.  Last time I played this 9 I shot a 52, so I went to obtain more coffee with a smile

6/14 fir

13/18 gir

30 putts

Spent 2 days working on my stroke and even though I didn’t make much, putting was much better. Hit it well although driving was not the greatest. Prototypical boring round of golf.

Our guys group traveled to Plum Brook CC in Sandusky, Ohio. VERY fast greens yesterday. Got a 94 but better yet our team won $11. each and I won $5. in skins. I was pretty happy with the cash and outside of 3 blow up holes I played decent. 

This is hole #16 at PBCC. The pic is a bit deceiving as the tee box is about 50'  higher than the green. Also bunkers surround virtually all of the green (340*) except for the the small area on the lower right. There's also a creek before the bunkers and a pond on the left.  Yup I parred that one 😁

Not well 😞

After the first hole (par),  too many multiple errors .. per hole .. led to more doubles and 1 triple than bogeys.

Had trouble focusing and committing to the shot - especially on close-in wedges....

Well.. we'll git 'em next time!

Man - I miss Ohio in September. It might honestly be the prettiest place ever in September. I used to live in Sheffield Lake - right on Lake Erie and I swear the sky is so blue and the grass so green - golf courses are always beautiful. I live in Oklahoma now and no one would ever accuse it of being beautiful...

I played Horn Rapids GC across town today.  I only play it a few times a year when a group there is short a fourth for the game of Wolf.  Last time I played there was in the spring.  A fun game as all players are fairly equal in ability.

I played OK; shot 81 but played all par 3's horribly.  My only decent par 3 was #17; pushed my shot right and my ball ran down the cart path to the desert.  My second shot was from about 30 yards which I stuck to a foot with my 60º Callaway PM Grind for par.  I was the only par in the group and the Wolf had to pay double quarters.

My best holes were #1 and #18; birdies on both.  A quarter on #1 and double quarters on #18.  My buddy that I play with in my Monday walking group at my course and I cleaned up against the other two players.  My buddy shot 78 and  finished 9 quarters up and I finished 6 quarters up.
