How'd you play?

Recommended Posts

Got out for a full round today and shook the rust off nicely—except for the putter.  45 on the front followed by par, par, grind out bogey then we hit a standstill behind a few groups. Two guys joined our two man group and as soon as that happened the wheels fell off for both my buddy and me.   Nonetheless, great start to the year!

Ugh, a day to forget especially back 9.
I figured out a way to avoid bad back 9, just play the front .
Sorry.....

38/40 +6 78

Anytime I can break 80 in the winter is good. The fact that my last 3 rounds (one in November, one in December, one today) have been 76, 74, 78 is absolutely awesome for me. 

My hard work is paying off and I'm excited to get to work with my Planemate once it arrives in the next week or two

44/41 +13 85

Ever since I switched to my P790s with the recoil graphite shafts I’ve been struggling to break into the 80s. A couple 88 or 89s over the last year but most mid 90s and it’s been frustrating. Ordered some jpx 900f’s with ns pro 950 gh shafts. Shot the best I have in over a year in my 1st round out with them. Super excited to move forward with these.

... Not sure I would blame the P790s as much as the Recoils. Pretty big difference between a 95gm 950GH and a 69gm Recoil 760. But in the end if you have found something that works, that is all that matters. 👍

Similar situation, was fitted Mizuno Hot Metal with Project X 90gr, ummm not good for 73 year old guy. Was switched to Recoil Senior. No comparison Mizunos went from loser to winner.

This wind is crazy!!  Seems like it has been blowing all year!  Oh wait... it has!  I'd much rather play in sub-40º and no wind than like it was today...  46º with 20-40 mph wind.  The wind just messes with my rhythm.

I played from the senior tees today thinking that maybe knowing I'm closer, I won't try to swing hard.  Nope!  The wind seems to make me want to swing harder, even though I know I shouldn't.  Regular tees... Senior tees... makes no difference.  I shoot the same scores.

I agree that it’s more the shafts than anything. These felt way better and didn’t need any adjusting period which is a good sign.

I never was able to play my 790’s on my recoils either...

went to my mizuno mp5’s on 115 gram steel and haven't looked back ...

ive been hot ever since I started the forward bump pre-swing , early set of the wrists -think Dustin Johnson’s swing- (except that I’m a fat old man) but that move has eliminated the fat shots, and I’m just playing nasty right now. Another low 70’s round, that’s 3 in a row since the “new move”. And it’s not like I’ve never done this move before, I’ve just been trying new things- that I eventually proved were not for me. Now I’m sure I’ve got the swing to take to my grave. Haha yea... we’ll see...

Lost $168? I can relate. In our Club league we can opt in or out for skins. When I opt in I lose and when I opt out I would have won skins. Now I just tell the Club Pro my skins money is as good as a lottery ticket since I don't win with either.

Wind again!!  Unbelievable!!!  Same temperature... 46º and wind 30+ mph.

We decided to play anyway.  Here's a pic of my lovely wife holding the flagstick on #1.  The wind blew the flag off, I guess; it was gone.

IMG_1199.thumb.jpeg.95a8aca8a6bc2023e7f7aaac8a6fa027.jpeg

I played the front nine in +8, but we quit when it decided to rain sideways.  This was probably my last round here until next month.  We head to Palm Springs on Wednesday.  It had better be nice and warm with NO wind.

I kept my drives in the fairways because I felt like I didn't have to swing as hard as from the Blues.

Getting to play in Ohio in mid-January is blessing. After my last round of only +6, was expecting to come back to earth. Leaving my putter at home didn’t help. Ended up 89, my best score at this course ever, and more importantly played with the same ball the whole round.

I believe it was Sam Sneed ... but I had always heard it as "when it's breezy, swing easy"

The weather has been horrible here lately as you have read in may posts, but I have played fairly well anyway for the conditions.  Apparently, I play worse when conditions are ideal.

My wife and I flew out of snow and 16º on Wednesday, and yesterday we played Indian Canyons GC North Course in Palm Springs.  Sunny and 68º with no wind... shot 87.  But it was the short game that left me.  Front 9 par 35 was +11... back 9 par 37 was +4 for a smooth 87.  On the front 9 I couldn't get the speed right and I didn't know where Indio was, even though I've played this course many times.  Hopefully, I got the "after travel bad round" out of my system.  12 more days until we fly home.

View from behind the #9 green, and my wife and I with her brother on the left.
