Yuck...
Bacon Boys 9, 1st couple holes just fine, no problems, hit ball well decent putting then as a foursome we all forgot how to play golf. It was nasty
As usual breakfast was fine. One health freak ordered Turkey Bacon. I think he has a doctors appointment Monday.

Sunday evening 9 at Navy Marine yesterday.

43, 22% GIR, 43% FIR and 14 putts. I started off with a birdie, but was spraying it off the tee after that so I was scrambling just about every hole. My putting has been solid though so I’m happy about that!

Forgot to mention, we had a walk on join our group this morning as we were short a player.
Guy was OK, played good pace and was personable which is all I really care about. Anyway he was a walking, talking Cleveland fan. Irons were Launchers and he hit them well.

... Been struggling a little on some monsoon soaked courses in SC and Orlando. Played Eagle Point in Bluffton and at 6400 yds with only 3 par 5's, it was effectively 6550 yds, there was zero roll on every tee shot and I carded a 77 that felt like an 87. I moved up to the whites at 6036 the next round and still drives were plugging and only improved 2 strokes to a 75. Sister course Crescent Point was not as bad but still wet and CPO so some roll, but 20 mph winds on a course I didn't know caused us to abandon our scorecards and just enjoy the day. 

... Played Orange Lake Legends in Orlando and the greens are covered with an invasive grass that looks like crab grass so making putts was almost impossible and shot another 75 with one lone birdie. Finally got to play a course with at least some run off the tee at Orange County Panther Lakes today and I felt like a man that just got released from a prison term for a crime I didn't commit. Ended up with 2 bogies and 5 birdies. But to make sure I wasn't too comfortable I am guessing, they turned the sprinklers on for 3 holes in a row while we were playing them LOL and it was cart path only so we had to dodge the water between sprinkler rotations. Greens rolled nice though and a 69 felt really good as I was starting to get a little discouraged with the playing conditions. 

...  I don't know how you Fla guys play in this weather. 94* and humidity at 100% with the overnight rains and then watering the over seeded fairways. I can't believe I used to practice football in this weather when I was young. I played walking in 105* heat in Phoenix and although pretty hot, I did not feel uncomfortable enough to think about quitting. Today, the cart moving was the only thing to cool us off today and walks across those steamy fairways to a ball as far from the cart as possible just left my clothes soaked and wet. Thankfully clouds blocked the sun about 70% of the round but that 30% in direct sunlight was just brutal. Not sure I could have done all 18 in full sun so I tip my cap to you year round Sunshine State golfers!!!

Took me a few years to get somewhat used to FL. I’m still not 100% comfortable with the conditions.
I can’t remember the last time we had a Tee time later than 8:00am, 8:30 is my cutoff.

Played with my son and a friend of his at Lincoln Park West. It was in the mid-40's but felt like upper 30's - it was wet and cold. My numbers aren't good but I was happy with my score. My son played really well - 1 over 72 for him.

70
FIR 1/13
GIR 11/18
Putts 28

No kidding!  I grew up in Florida and spent most of my adult life in the southeast where heat and humidity were typical.  I didn't realize how bad it was until I finally moved out west and found out about low humidity!  Even though it was 100 in Colorado, I was playing golf and not sweating like a stuck pig like I would have been in the same temperature in Charleston, SC with humidity above 95%!  I sure don't miss that humidity!

...definitely a strange round today. I had the same number of GIRS as I did plugged bunker shots, and was the same number over par for the entire round. The magic number? 4!

Obviously, the iron play was very bad, however my short game and putting really saved me today. I only had 25 putts, and while that number is extremely deceiving because of the low GIR, I still made over 100ft of putts. I’m really glad I decided to give the armlock one more try before I moved back to a traditional putter.  Overall, some good, some bad, and some ugly.

2-3 club cold wind, leaves blowing all over the green, slow round due to everyone having to search for their balls in the leaves and I couldn't get it together.  I think I had 4 or 5 double bogeys.  Just couldn't focus on playing, I guess.  Anyway, ended up shooting a disappointing 88.  Only highlight on the round was a birdie on the #2 handicap hole.  Go figure!

My season is likely over after last night, which sort of makes me sad because I feel like I have made some progress in the last month or so in terms of getting off the tee and since I don't really have access to an indoor place I can hit balls, I hope I don't revert back to old habits once next season starts. Last night I shot a +8 with a triple on the second hole - I pulled my second shot into a pond. I wasn't striking the ball all that great but ended up with 15 putts to keep things normal, score wise. I only hit 3 fairways, but my missed fairways still left me with reasonable shots, which I don't mind. Have you ever hit a flop shot with a hybrid? I did last night, unintentionally, of course. My tee shot on the first par 5 came to rest on top of some thick, fluffy rough. I was trying to hit a hybrid and I'm not entirely certain the club actually contacted the ball - I'm pretty sure the ball traveled just as far vertically as it did horizontally, which was 17 yards per Arccos. I could only laugh at myself.

Hot & HUMID this morning. Scoring was awful due to terrible chipping & putting, never gave myself a chance.
Driver and G410 irons were working and made the day bearable. Hit a few rockets off the irons and have to rethink some of my shots. Carry has improved and hope will continue.

Since (iI believe) you're in northeast Ohio - what about getting to the golf dome in Chagrin Falls? I haven't been there in years but understand they're still in business. A heated driving range is another option. I know that Windmill Golf Center in Macedonia has several heated bays.

Another lackluster performance on the links.  Shot an 84 that really felt more like a 90.  Struggled with my wedges on the soft,  recently sanded turf.  Lots of leaves and debris on the ground, including the green.  Any shot not dead in the middle of the fairway was hard to locate amongst the shiny leaves.  Shot of the day was a mediocre bunker shot that caught the collar and rolled forward, ticked a leaf redirecting the ball 1/2 inch or so into the hole for a birdie.  I'll be thankful when the final leaves have fallen and the maintenance crew clears them.  Too much work looking for golf balls (and not just my own!).

I am in Akron. You are right about those options but they are not terribly close for me, but would certainly work if I got the itch. There was a range with heated bays about 10 minutes away that closed this year.

Don't forget Top Golf when it opens.
