So The Villages are expanding?  Not surprising considering we're just now coming into the middle of the boomer population retiring.  Maybe those guys who offered "I have some swampland in Florida for sale" were really being genuine. 🙂

When I moved here 7 1/2 years ago there were approximately 65,000 ole farts now it has more than doubled.
Yes, the swampland in FL did become communities.
Our house when we moved in was on the edge of TV now we’re in the middle.

You only have to look at this screen shot to know I wasn't playing and now probably won't be for a while. IMG_5079.thumb.JPG.0f49ef1c59040d650690ec69b15800c9.JPG

My parents moved to Ft. Lauderdale the year my Dad returned from WWII.  Both born and raised in MA, he simply couldn't handle the winter having been in the Pacific for the better part of 4 years.  I recall their stories about watching places, once considered swampland, seemingly becoming a new city overnight. When I played on the JGA, we had a tournament at the (then) brand new Jackie Gleason Inverrary GC and surrounding development.  That was considered out in nowhere. We recently looked at homes at Sun City Festival (Buckeye, AZ) which many say is just too far out of the greater Phoenix area... just wait 10 years.  This same story just keeps recycling.

Played yesterday for the first time in over 3 weeks! I’ve been on a course twice in that period to test golf balls but I was doing that, not playing golf to keep score.

Played pretty well once I shook off the rust 39-39, 78. The front nine at St Pete CC is generally 2 shots easier than the back - I bogeyed 3 of the first 5 holes before I got settled in with my short game.

41-37 for a 78 today.  My chipping was so bad that my teammates were begging me to hit the green in regulation, just so they didn't have to watch.  2 doubles were negated by 4 birdies.

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!  

I don't miss it either!!  I have had many convention meetings in Naples and Orlando... in July!!  I always stayed for an extra week to play, although sometimes I wondered why.  Maybe the cheap golf!!  

I've lived in the desert here in Washington for 50 years.  100+ days are common in the summer, but golf early in the morning is not the best time.  Irrigation all night long and then the sun hits the grass at 5am and the humidity until 11am on the course reminds me of Florida.  It's better after noon, but it's a dry heat.

Actually, being on the outskirts of greater Phoenix is not such a bad thing.  My BIL lives in Surprise which not all that long ago was "out in nowhere".  Now it's it's own city, and everything you need is a short drive away, maybe even by golf cart.  Unless I was going to play golf at a course on the other side of Phoenix, I would likely never drive into/around Phoenix.

Another day of good tee shots, good short game (short putting was medicore), and bad iron play. Spent some time on the range and hit the ball well but it didn't carry over to the course.

Got out yesterday afternoon for what may be the last round of the year. It was 45*F with a stiff 15mph wind. Was the only one on the course and barely hit any greens but glad I got out to play. Got 18 holes in and think I shot about 88 only kept score mentally. Was also trying to implement a few tips I got during my true spec fitting. So mixed bag of shots and probably some over compensation on swing mechanics.

38/38 for a sweet little 76.  Ball striking was solid for the most part.  Putting was good.  Left a couple of birdies out there, but overall felt good about my game today.

I hit the ball better than I have for quite awhile.  83, but missed 8 putts that I normally would make.  Crappy cold weather!!!

Even par 72 yesterday. First round with the Cleveland Elevado frontline putter.

I had 6 birdies on the round. One from 25ft, two from 18ft, and the rest from 5-7ft.

I obviously had some stinker holes in there as well, but I was very happy with the score, given I hadn’t played or hit a ball in two weeks.

Most of the back-nine was into the wind.

4-birdies in a row on the front!

Could only get 9 holes in this morning, having the house painted and want to be there on 1st day.
65’ who knew it would ever get below 70’ in central FL!
Shot a Pedestrian 43, driver was good to me except on 9th hole. Getting used to the G410 iron distances and new Lie angle. Carry distance didn’t make sense on a couple iron shot but I’m writing it off as new iron Honeymoon. Absolutely killed a 7iron from 175. Have no idea what happened as it was supposed to be a safe shot to keep away from water and bunker but got to the green. My 7 iron is a 150 tops.

Played with my eldest son for our regular Monday round. Just an absolutely beautiful fall day - mid-60's and only a light breeze (10 mph). Started out a but rusty and had an opening bogey but settled down with 2 birdies on the front. Played really well on the back with 4 birdies but just really enjoyed the day with my son - those times are so great and one of the reasons I love golf :)

I had to edit my post to 29 putts but my average putts per round is 28. It is without question the strength of my game. I'd have to go through my cards to see when I've had 30+ putts but it happens for sure.

Walked a  late 9 tonight in 55 degrees and sun.1st round in a week and not a ton a play this fall so little tougher to loosen up as it gets colder. 

Very slow start and actually topped a ball on #2.  Water ball on # 5.  Found a tempo and a groove and played 1 over last 4 holes with legit birdie attempts on 6, 8, and 9. 

Nice 9 wirh another twilight member who enjoys some banter and the game as much as I do.
