I guess I wasn’t even paying attention today, because I didn’t even realize I had four birdies.

First time playing in three weeks.  Tee shot was good,  chipping was good,  putting was really good.   Approach shots were a mixed bag and directly contributed to my poor holes.

Sadly I played great - why? Because I was testing golf balls. At least two balls a hole and often 3 on the front nine.

On the back I played 2. I was 2 over on one of the balls that I played throughout the round. I was one over whenever I played my gamer but did not play it on every hole.

Wish I had

Shooting 80 while putting terribly is not that bad.  Tighten that up and you are right there!!

Just laugh at the ones by the "ladies tee box".  A couple of months ago I barely got past the "ladies tee box", but it was 200 yards out!!!!!!   😂

Haha! 😂🤣 One of my main goals on the course is to keep a positive attitude while playing and limit the amount I get frustrated. In the past, I’ve had some “finer moments” that I’m quite embarrassed about now, and have vowed never to repeat. One of the unexpected benefits has been the ability to recover much quicker after a bad shot or two as opposed to spiraling even further.

30 putts.

This was today. Putter didn’t travel with my game playing poppy hills. Had 69 putts in 36 holes. Shot 79 79. 15th hole the second day I made 8 footer for par and told my partner that you could actually use feet to measure the distance of the made putt. 
 

Hit it ok today just too loose. 6 bogeys is unacceptable. Greens are still not healed so I think I’ll blame it on that. 
 

Here is 13th hole at Bayonet. Just happened to have my partner video me and I hit my best drive and only birdie of the day.

I absolutely LOVE Bayonet and Black Horse. I got in around 80 rounds between the two courses when I was living in the area. Best deal ever for active duty military and the courses are no slouch!

Played another course I had never played before in Quitman, Georgia. It’s a short course where some of you bombers could reach half the par 4s from the tee box. But it has an interesting mix of holes and is pretty tight with very small greens. But because I had a lot of wedges into greens I was stiffing them to within 10 feet all day long. Sadly, two of those bogies on the back nine were three putts from within 6 feet of the hole both times. That’s what happens when you blow your first putt by and it’s longer then your first putt. Oh well, another day on the golf course is still better then any day at work.

After a disappointing season on the final weekend I hit some form. Hit a scratch 75 net 66 and hopefully win the monthly medal then played at Castle Stuart yesterday in great autumn conditions. I'd played there before but in 30mph winds and overcast conditions. Yesterday was stunning. For those who have read my post on course management, I started well lipping out my par putt on 1 and birdie on 2, feeling good on 3 until I pulled my approach left. The ball is sitting in a small gorse bush root, there is no way you can get the club onto the back of the ball and I try the Seve shot 4 shots later I'm on the green and the mist has descended. Apart from that I was pretty steady. Some pictures below and one of  Elgin Cathedral just to show I don't always play golf

Walking day with the guys today.  ABSOLUTELY beautiful morning!!  Sunny and 58º with no wind.  The course had a little tournament today, so the course was open on the back nine.  We only played nine holes like most weeks, but we always play the front nine.  Nice to get out on the back for a change... it's a much flatter walk.  Shot 38 (+3) and had a career long drive on #13.  My buddy is always longer off the tee than I am, and he hit a great drive.  When i hit mine, I knew it was good.  Both of us in the middle of the fairway and I was 25 yards past him!!  253 yards!!  Huuuuuge for me. Love fall golf!!
The geese are flying through now and crapping up the place.  Here is my tee shot on the short par 4 #14 just in the rough next to the geese on the right...

Would love to have a dog!!  But first, we would need 18 of them😂; they like the pond areas, but they will also wander all over the course eating grass/weeds or whatever.    And second, our course is an Audubon International golf course, so we can't harass the birds.  The most we can do is drive carts up to them and herd them off the fairway.  I did that twice yesterday for my wife.  I just hit away.  Today my ball landed right in the middle of the flock and they didn't even move!!

Walla Walla CC has a collie and he/she is very good at keeping the geese off!!

When we hired a Greenskeeper back in CT one of the questions asked in the interview was do you have a dog?

Well it was an incredibly warm, clear day (gonna be the last one of those for a while....) but started off kinda poorly...

..to where my score to par after the first 3 holes matched my previous whole 9 hole round there!

Picked it up after that with bogeys and pars, tho I did add another double on my nemesis hole at this course (#7) - tee shot left, punch out, chunked the approach, chip on but ran out too much, misread the first putt..... 

Finished well with an almost birdie (Par 5) - I actually missed a straight-in level 3 footer - and a solid birdie (uphill Par 3). 

 

.. And speaking of Canadian Geese .. typically this course, especially #7 thru #9 by the water, are thick with geese and geese poop (walkers tip: put cheap plastic shower caps on your cart wheels) .. but today was strangely, weirdly clean! Not one goose in sight .. Hey @Kenny B maybe they all went to Washington?!?! 🤣

Played a new course today - Lake Hefner North in OKC. Was a beautiful day - 70's with winds 15-20. Played with 2 of my two eldest boys and had a really great day. Was the first time I used Arrcos and it was great - no problems at all.

Worst round in a long while today! I hurt my back about a month or so ago and as it has healed it has really tightened up. Experiencing a lot of lower back pain, tightness that just won’t let up. I’ve been stretching a lot to try to help and it does alleviate the pain for a bit. But today when I tried to play I could just not get loosened up. So stiff. Couldn’t sequence. I duffed 2 shots on the first hole. Opened with 5 bogeys in a row.

But I still had fun!

Went back to the same course I'd played yesterday, in an attempt to seek some redemption on the first three holes that I had played poorly - and, well, that didn't work out......

Just one stroke better on #1 but then just as bad on #2 and #3. Scratched out three ok bogeys to follow but then yet another blow-up on the #7 hole. 

And the last two holes that I'd almost-birdied and birdied yesterday? Well today was the polar opposite....

Man this game can be hard sometimes, and I'm not really liking the way I'm closing out the season here. Gotta turn it around!!!

Finish strong on the 19th hole, and all is forgiven.  😉
