Played at The Babe on Tuesday, bag full of my Hogan Ptx Irons. Shot a 37/44:81.

Played at my club today with the Hogan’s again.....shot a 41/41:82.

I think the Hogan's should stay in the bag mate, seems to me they're working great for you.

As for me, I played OK. Shot a pretty stinky 91 with drives all over the place. However, the 2 guys I was paired with were great company, our round time was 3.46 and my Uncle pretty much kept his mouth closed the whole 18.

My wife walked 9 with me, she was on call so we had to stay close to the apartment. Went to Lincoln Country Club, and it was honestly probably the worst conditions I've ever played in. Called for a tee time and they said "just come in whenever, there's no one out". When I got there, the pro shop was closed and I had to pay at their bowling alley counter. They said they had just sent 2 groups off the front, so they sent me off the back. Then I got out to the back and saw that a kid's group through the Y or something just went off the back... The guy in charge of that just said hey we're gonna be a pain to be behind, just go for the front. Such a weird experience.

Played solid enough tho, 42 even though the course was really short. Short game saved my butt, chipping and putting felt great. My driver was really inconsistent, and my ball striking wasn't nearly what it's been on the range lately, so that was a little disappointing but I scrambled well. I missed a 4' birdie putt I'd love to have back, and a 10' eagle putt, other than those 2 the flatstick was going to town. And it was nice to be able to walk it with my wife

Whiskey Creek Golf Club. 90 (42/48), 43% FIR, 33% GIR and 37 putts. Played decent on the front and then started spraying shots on the back. Needless to say, that didn’t help. My index keeps creeping up, which is discouraging, but that’s what I get for playing crappy golf.

- 46 (+10) / 45 ESC  

- 1/7 FIR 

- 1/9 GIR

- 16 Putts (1 3-putt, 5 2-putts, 3 1-putts) 

Played some of my best golf of the year for the first three holes and then the wheels kind of fell off. 

Blow-up hole came on No. 4. A 10-some (not kidding...) let me play through and I promptly topped my 3 wood into the weeds. Kind of rattled me a bit and ended up really struggling with my swing for the rest of the round. Shame. As I said above, the first three holes were some of my best golf of the year.

Ended up hitting two long par putts to save the round somewhat on No. 8 and No. 9. 

Remove the blow-up hole and I'd be totally OK with the round.

- 44/43 = 87 (+15)

- 8/15 FIR 

- 4/18 GIR (1 birdie)

- 35 Putts (2 3-putts, 13 2-putts, 3 1-putts) 

Driver was miserable this morning, but today's blow up hole was a triple bogey on a par 3 thanks to blading one out of the greenside bunker over the green and behind a tree. 

Had one "perfect" hole, No. 10. 255-yard driver in the middle, wedge to five feet, center cup on a rather slippery little putt. 

Trying to believe Rotella in that holes like that are not just anomalies but rather a golfers true potential. Hit some great shots again this morning, especially with irons and wedges, but I just can't get things to be consistent. One round I'll drive the ball well (like last weekend) and cost myself shots with a poor short game, and then this weekend I drive the ball terribly but excel with my wedges.

Played in our annual family scramble today. Had a good driver day and hit some other good shots and talked some 💩.

@MaxEntropy got the closest to on the #3 par 3 and his mate Mike got the closest to on the #6 par 3, so they both got their entry fee back.

We ended up being 7 under, when you consider the calibre of some of the others that play, we did well.

Had a great time. Felt like I was hitting the ball pretty well today. Already looking forward to next year to see if I can make it 3 in a row for getting my fee back.

Struggled a bit today playing back one set of tees from where I prefer to play.  I don't normally loose golf balls, but today I put 3 in the water on 3 different holes.  Iron play was pretty good today, but got some bad breaks and just didn't score well.  44/42, but the team did well and I did get 1 gross skin, so netted a few bucks.

Haha!   Well, 2 of the 3 balls had already played at least 18 holes and I'm playing Snell at $28/dozen.  A bit more than the Kirkland's but at least they weren't brand new ProV's 🙂

Ohh man soooo close....

Started off calm and relaxed, and was only +2 thru 5 (FIVE!) holes. 

Maybe I started thinking about the "What If?" scenario and/or maybe it was the roadblock ahead we ran into, but .. lost my rhythm and went double-triple-triple the next three holes .......

My goal today was to work towards an error free round but after a two-chip followed by a splash on each of the next two holes after that .. owwch! .. that new PB fantasy was shattered!

On the plus side, felt like I had most (not all, but most) of the tee shots under control; regained some confidence in chipping; and had several putts that shudda-cudda-wudda dropped in one. Also had a decent bunker 1-out and juuuust missed the comeback putt.

Finished that last hole with a bogey which was actually a good save from where I hacked the tee shot to; for a +11 (or +2 over bogey golf).

Shot 86.  Didn't play well at all today.  My right hand is sore and couldn't put any power on my swings, not that I have a lot anyway, but less than usual means I need more up and downs.  I couldn't do that either, since the greens are still recovering from aerating early in the week

I got lucky on #12 a par 3 playing 150y into a 15mph breeze.  Shot has to clear a bunker... mine didn't, leaving my ball a foot from the lip. With no followthrough, I hit a little too much sand.  The ball popped out but landed in the rough on an upslope short of the green.  Since the ball was on the upslope, my 3rd shot went fairly high, bounced once and slam-dunked into the cup...  one of my few pars.
