I played better this morning but only had time for 9 holes with the 3 geezers walking.

Had a sorta similar situation on my 9 yesterday - thought I had the course to myself, only to get onto the first tee and see one (dare I say?) old guy by himself and taking his sweeeet time .. pulling a club, lining up his shot, getting ready for his shot, taking his shot, looking at his shot, walking back to his bag and puffing on his cigar and putting his club back in and........

So I decided instead of stressing about it, I'd do the same, and .. well .. kinda think it maybe actually helped me, to slow down and make sure I'm fully prepared for my next shot 🤔

I played Beaverhead GC in Dillon yesterday.  It was 40F when I left the house but forecast to reach 56F and full sun.  I'm glad my wife convinced me to change from shorts to jeans!  The wind in Dillon was blowing about 7 mph and I would have froze.  The course was wide open; maybe 3 or 4 other groups out.  I played solo and my normal 2-ball format.  Snell MTB-X and a yellow Titleist ProV1.  Snell shot a 45/43 and Titleist a 41/42.  Snell found the bottom of the cup on the par 4 #7 with second shot 8i from 92 yards... the first eagle this year 🤩.  My putting was less than stellar, but the rest of the bag was working.  I had a drive on #9 (with the wind) that rolled out to 294 yards - that's a bomb for me!  Better yet, the other ball was only 20 yards behind that...that G410P is pure awesomeness. The greens were "verti-cut" and sanded a couple weeks ago and still have lots of sand. The balls rolled just fine, so it was just a off day putting. 

It was kind of fun having the course to myself.  I guess the colder weather and NFL Sunday kept most home.  It was beautiful and sunny, with all the surrounding mountains covered with snow from the storm a week ago.  Sadly, this may have been my last round here in MT for 2019.  Another large cold front is heading down from Canada and forecasted to bring even more snow and colder temps than the storm a week ago 😱.  With a house carpet makeover upcoming next week, I may not get out again until we leave for Arizona early November.  For damn sure I won't be wearing shorts 🤣.

You and every other winter visitor will start to get on the courses in Yuma all at once. I hated that time of year only because there would be 5 hour rounds when there were only 4 hours of daylight left.

Would you like to play next Sunday after church? If so we could try to do SPCC on the South Side just over the bridge.

I shot 76 under brutal conditions yesterday - course was wet, wind was 15-25 either across or in (there was literally never a downwind Shot).

My longest drive was 218, course was over 6,000 from the tees that we played.

Funniest sequence was 13/14. Hit a crappy drive, laid up on a long par 4 and scant my wedge to 5 feet - par!!! 14 hit great drive, perfect layup, beautiful wedge (same wedge) to 10 feet. 2 putt, par...

Sometimes golf makes no sense. Over a longer term it does...

My usual weekly post:

3 rounds in a row breaking 90 with two coming at my home course which is encouraging. Better yet, I did this one without a good putting game which usually masks poor ball striking or short game. This is the first time my driver and irons both carried the day and kept me in play in probably two

I would have loved to see my strokes gained- I hit three 8-15 footers but missed five or six 5 footers which are usually money for me. I could not get a read from in close which is odd. Sadly I just missed a personal best of 87 by a 12 footer that hit the edge. Either way I'm happy there's been progress this year after the last two years where I struggled to break 90 routinely.

Actually, things are reasonably low key and golf rounds normal until after Christmas - then it gets crazy until mid March.  Those of us who go early love Nov/Dec. The great thing about being retired is that 4+ hour golf rounds, while not my preference, don't bother me.

I had another good night in league last night, ballstriking was best it has been in a long time. Other than 3 shots, almost everything went exactly where I intended them to go. 4/6 FIR and 5/9 GIR and 17 putts for a 40 (+5) - 5 pars, 2 doubles, and a bogey. Two of the three bad shots led to penalties (1 unplayable lie and one shot OB). The greens had been aerated in the last week so we had the sandy rooster tails while putting so the ball wasn't rolling very well, but I still managed to lip out a few putts, so it could have been a great round for me.

At times (most of the time?) I struggle with my tempo - I can occasionally feel myself trying to start the downswing when the backswing isn't finished yet, which I'm sure has some dire consequences on my timing, so I tried to consciously pause at the top like Hideki. I know it wasn't as dramatic as him, but it seemed to help quite a bit. Not only were shots flying straight, but my distance was good, too. I hit 3 fairways with my 3W and Arccos says they were 247 (uphill), 260, and 261.

A friend and I are taking off to Myrtle Beach next Tuesday morning, so I hope I remember this when I get down there as it sure would be nice to play well on resort courses.

I have a Garmin Approach S20 GPS watch, and it synchs with the Garmin Connect app on my iphone.  The app tracks not only what you see there, but you can click on any hole below the scorecard and see your shot distances.  I love it a ton more then a GPS app on my phone which I had to open and close every time I posted a score per hole.  Love the GPS watch.

I share your plight.  No excuse for me because, as I've mentioned in other posts, a golf swing and fly cast stroke share the same attributes when it comes to tempo and failure to transition the backstroke and forward stroke correctly. I have pretty well mastered the fly casting stroke but for some reason unable to consistently do so with my golf swing.  If we ever play a round together, you might wonder what the hell I'm repeatedly muttering to myself at set-up... "light grip and SMOOTH, SLOW SWING".

Yes, similar but different, at least from my experience.  You HAVE to wait when fly casting to allow the line to travel.  Similarly, I HAVE to wait when using my Skilz Gold Flex to allow the weight to properly flex the shaft, just not as long as fly casting.  Since clubs have a different weight and flex and golf swings have varying lengths depending on the shot required, the transition isn't as obvious, and it's very easy to have an incorrect move at transition.  Of course, pros are better at this than amateurs!  

I agree about the light grip and smooth swing, but be careful about the SLOW part.  Slow can equal short.  Need to maintain the proper tempo.

Played 9 yesterday on a beautiful 60 degree fall day. All out of sync and I think I ended up +4.  Hit some fairways but dont think I hit a GIR.  I was  just to quick on transition especially on irons. 

Today wil be 64 so heading out for 18 after the frost delay lifts.

Gorgeous day on the course - high 60's, little wind and a cloudless sky. Unfortunately my game was less than remarkable - booking a 95. Highlight of the round was making par on our #16, #3 handicap hole on our course. I sank a 20' putt on that hole - too bad I couldn't putt on the other 17 holes. My putter and I need to go to therapy.

It was cold (upper 40's with wind chill), wet and windy (20+) today but so fun! Played with my 2 eldest sons and friend of my son (all in their 20's). We played really fast and laughed so much. What a great day! Only had time for 12 holes - we didn't start until 5:30 - but it was great. We played 9 holes stroke play and the last 3 holes team best ball. I played so well for the conditions:

-2 33
FIR 2/6
GIR 8/9
Putts 15

What a great fall evening of golf!

Well, my game can travel.

Yesterday I had the honour and pleasure of teeing it up with @GolfSpy Barbajo at Firestone Country Club. 

Yes, the hat came out, along with the skull shirt!

firestone.jpg.dfa1dc8fac82b3d8e17b05a217b6d66d.jpg

We played the West course...the South was having a charity scramble and it looked like the North was getting maintenance done, but both of those courses are L O N G, so the West, using the hybrid tees ran around 6100 yards and was a good length for us.

I ended up shooting an 88 with 2 penalties, so it could have been lower. The greens weren't as fast as I thought they'd be when we teed off, but started to get quicker on the back 9 with the sun out. The fairways were great and the rough was OK to thick on different holes. But, can you believe we were still fixing other peoples ball marks on the greens...c'mon people, you're at YOUR club, fix the damn ball marks.

Overall, it was a fantastic day and I thank John for his friendship and hospitality.

Can't remember what hole this was.

firestone1.jpg.af6671ba8a2760ba962bf68e025f0444.jpg


Hole 16. Hit it to about 6-8' with a 6 iron.

firestone2.jpg.642d47c53cb5d1fff519911913a67319.jpg


This is the second hole. Tried going over the bunker but sliced with to somewhere in between the two bunkers on the right...ball lost in plain sight.

Looks like the course lived up to its reputation. I wouldn't feel bad about an 88 - tough course and being first time on it.

It was a great day for golf in northern Ohio glad you guys had a good time. FYI you didn't tell us your 'partners' score 😉

Shot 42/43:85 today with two birdies, one of them was a 20+ footer on #18! Tried Arccos again today but after two holes it had failed to pick up four shots! I like the analytics but the durability just isn’t there.
