Healthy outlet where one can properly social distance as long as the course follow rules. No sand buckets, no rakes. no ball washers, no air hose,  1 per cart unless they live together, and foam in cup so ball falls about a half inch or so in to cup.  I believe Ive seen some Cali courses open. OGA course, amd Im sure many others are booking and paying online only and no entry to pro shop. Santiam allows a certain amount of peeps in pro shop and they put in a window for business at counter. Not sure how my course is handling cart fees and green fees for the public. No desire to go in and find out either. I walk most of the time anyways. 

We did all that for 2 weeks before we were shut down... non-essential business.  I'm sure ALL courses in WA are closed until at least April 8.

Got out today. 2 birds, parred the toughest 2 holes and lots of wild shots. But I golfed!

... Illinois is also in a Stay At Home order by the Governor and that includes golf courses. Virus is just starting to peak here in Chicago and the suburbs.

You are lucky to still be open.  I thought all of the west coast governors were lock-step with the same mandates.  Why did she allow golf courses to remain open?

Counties are deciding whether or not to open courses in CA. Some are some aren’t.

First round at Windmill yesterday and it was a tale of 2 nines.

Shot a fairly blistering 41 on the front followed by a very disappointing 49 on the back for a 90. I just fell apart and my back started aching. We'll see what happens on Sunday.

I got out to play yesterday with my brother. The course was a swamp.... water and mud everywhere.  I was able to keep it under 90, but just barely...lol. Not a good score to say the least, it wasn't about scoring. 🙂

80. Ugh. Played the back first, 42, then 38 on the front. Hit a bucket after the round to work things out.
Drove 75 miles, just across the border to Vicksburg, Mississippi, so I could play. Nice, small greens, the rest of the course was so-so, but better than our goat ranch where I live.

Didn’t hit it all that good. Driver was pretty erratic, but short game was on point. +2.18 Around the green on front 9 alone. Vokey’s are quickly turning into a wise investment.

Decided at about 430 pm to hit the course.  Windy and rainy most of the day  and I wasnt feeling it, but I need to walk anyways so off I went.  3 cars in the lot and 2 of them belonged to employees. Never saw another soul and never a drop of rain. Played 2-3 balls along the way  and spent some extra time to hit my 3w from the fairway along the way trying to figure it out.  Played well minus my wedge game which has been off for some reason. Distance is throwing me for a curve.

Did you figure it out?  My problem with the 3W is my right shoulder tends to drop and my left shoulder gets too high.  It will work off a tee, but I have to focus on a more level swing.  One day it's great; next day... not so much!!

Much better.  I hit 3w off the tee often so I drop my right shoulder on setup to catch it on the upswing and I get pretty aggressive on my downswing.  I found myself doing that off the turf so it created all sorts of bad outcomes.  Leveled the shoulders, ball a bit more inside my feet than tee setup, and a much easier swing seemed to help. 

I carry a 4h and it is generally my go to club for all sorts of shots.  I am struggling with it currently and need get busy with that club next.

Started out in the 50s but was in the 80s by about noon when fog burned off and the sun came out.   My short game was a miserable failure today but other than that I hit the ball and putted well.  I can't seem to transfer my short game from the practice area to the course.

I've struggled with the 3W in the past as well, but I started following this guy on Insta @jakehuttgolf he's the golf coach at Stanford and puts quick tips on Insta that have really been helpful, especially the one on the 3W.  Last time I played, a couple weeks ago, I hit my 3W - 267.  Sounds like you've got it figured out, but just thought I'd tell you about the guy on Instagram.

Started out strong with a birdie on the par 5 first hole and finished the 9 with a 38.  Got a phone text that distracted me for the rest of the round and I lost focus.  3 doubles on the backside and shoot 83 for the round.

On another note, the number of COVID 19 cases has been doubling in our county and I've made a conscious decision to quit playing golf as a group game for awhile, even though we are good about maintaining distances.

Had a heartbreaking 82 today. My buddy and me, both 63, a 10 and a 5 took on a Yankee minor league trainer and their triple A strength coach (also a certified TPI trainer). These guys are 29 and 33 and a 4 and a 14. They played the tips, we played up a set us v them even 5 dollar Nassau.

 

Great young guys, fun match - my 10 shot 78 and we tied them. I did have some contributions including the day’s highlight, a hole out from 125 for Eagle when one of them was inside 5 feet for birdie. That was great.

 

Hard to imagine the strength coach works with guys like Aaron Judge in the weight room. :)

 

According to ARCOSS my approach game handicap was 15.5. :( I missed 13/18 approaches left. It seemed like all of those were with 6 or 7 iron.

 

On 18, a par 5, I had 215 to the center into the wind, up hill, couldn’t reach, lots of trouble around the green. I said I’m hitting 6 iron. Tried to hit a cut and blistered the most beautiful 160 yard 2 yard draw you’d ever want to see. :)
