Much different day compared to yesterdays round. Struggled my way to a 42.  Striking my irons very well but the high winds really messed with yardage. One hole Im hiting a 4h 170 into the wind.The next hole Im hitting a 185 yard 8i. Yeterday all pitches and chips were within 3 feet. Today 6-8 ft. 

Still a great fall evening.

Played round #4 this week at Bear Creek, HHI. Shot 41/44:85. Birdied the final hole! BTW, I am giving up on Arccos. Sure, it’s a fantastic system for keeping stats....however, the interface with my iWatch sucks! I5 keeps locking up after about 12 holes. I have spoken with an$ emailed Arccos Customer Service about this many times since last February yet no resolution. I just cannot understand how a company like Arccos could launch an iWatch interface and have not been able to make it work.

Shot a really “meh” 77. Nothing was really sharp, irons were shaky, putter was cold, and chipping was just okay. Only redeeming thing were my drives that included a 330 yard bomb that set up a birdie on the #1 handicap hole. 

I'll take your meh 77 any day I play young man!

Played Bear Creek again today. Played the white tees, 6,126 yds, shot 47/45:92....no birdies[emoji20]

Played with locals from Oyster Bay GC. Great times, playing the White’s was a challenge and made me use my fairway woods a lot.

That's about the yardage I play, and I use a lot of FW/hybrids myself.

I played Oyster Bay many, many years ago.  Nice course.  I still have a sweater vest with their logo that I love.

Cra***y day. We had a pro-am event at Club today so my wife and I went to Sandusky to play at a sister Club. The greens were as fast as putting on ice and the wind was blowing 20+. Under normal conditions it's a tough course but today even tougher. I ended up with a 96. A few pars interspersed with doubles and a couple of triples.

Red Wing Lake Golf Course. Quick 9 after class.

38, 100% FIR, 67% GIR and 17 putts (two 3 putts). What a difference a coupe days makes!


That's some good ball striking there - good stuff!

Had a company outing, 4 man scramble. Probably my best all around ball striking I've had in a long time, from tee to green. Putting was frustrating, aerated greens and burned so many edges...but can't complain!

Smoked some drives, had some great approaches. Our foursome hit every green in regulation, including a par 5 in two. Ended up -3, but could have easily been 5 or 6 under. Ended up losing by one stroke.

Only downside is the cooler weather was a not-too-friendly reminder that the playing season doesn't have a ton of time left😥

To be completely honest, it carried about 230 yards landed on a downslope and rolled 100 yards. It hasn’t rained here in 3 weeks and everything is rock hard.

Honey Bee Golf Club in Virginia Beach yesterday. 87 (45/42, 86 ESC), 42% FIR, 22% GIR and 31 putts. I played this course before years ago, and it's short (5700 yards from the blacks, 6000 from the tips), but I was spraying tee shots, which put me in several bad situations. Regardless I enjoyed my last round in Va Beach and I'm looking forward to getting back to Hawaii!

In Hawaii and played Wailea Gold, then Emerald. Shot 78 on gold, and the then a 2 under 70 at Emerald.

will follow up with pics and storyline when I get home. But in a word, breathtaking...

Wailea Gold and Emerald are easily two of the best values in all of Hawaii. Very nice scores on both courses!

Back in June I played in a scramble with three guys from our league. We won a round for the four of us at the Country Club of Hudson. We played there yesterday afternoon. The course was really nice and was in great shape. They had aerated the greens three weeks ago, but they were mostly healed and nice. Front 9 was better than I could have hoped for - 42 with 15 putts and a birdie on #1 handicap hole and a par on the second hardest hole on that 9. Back 9 was the opposite - I forgot how to hit the ball and had a streak of 5 doubles and a triple to finish with a 50. I'll take a 92 on a new course, but was a bit irritated with my inability to hit the ball on the back 9, especially irons - pull hook, push slice, fat, thin - I did all of them over that 6 hole stretch. A couple pics from the course:

Yup, I had that lie on the first par 3. Successfully got it out and 2-putted for bogey.

Didn’t keep score today with a partner for a quick 18. He is 15 years older than me and his pro had him switch to graphite women’s shafts. Has a heck of an accurate game and really always had. So for some reason I was struggling badly early. Just out of curiosity I tried his clubs for a few holes. And walla, beautiful piercing draws with all that I tried. It felt so effortless swinging his clubs. I know the old adage of the Indian or the arrow. But the arrow i tried today had me thinking. Was really hard hitting a real bad shot with his clubs

... Yup, it is mostly the Indian and not the arrow. But give a big strong Indian a bow that is easily pulled and flimsy and he wont hit his target. Give a smaller weaker Indian a stout bow he can't pull and he won't hit his target either. Finding the equipment that fits your swing is an absolute necessity to having a chance to hit your target.

73 today and the putter is still performing well (great ebay buy).

Couple of very good birdies with 4wood then 4 iron to 12 feet on a long par 4. Even reached our 535 par 5 with a driver and hybrid in very soft conditions, carried all the way to the green.

Great to start playing well as the season finishes 🙄
