How'd you play?

Rode 18 in the wind and rain today. Rain pretty much stopped after #5 and the course was empty. Tied my alll time low with a +2 73. Couldve been lowet as I left several birdie putts a coyple rolls shoet. Hence my miniker idea which really mean leaving putts short. 
Got lucky and had a homeowner pull a cruel joke on me. I was handcuffed just off the left fairway with a tree directly between me and the green. I had 176 so I pulled a 6i with the thought of drawing it in. I figured the trees would stop by ball from the house and OB if it didnt draw. Well it didnt draw and and it went cleanly through the trees and I heard it hit the house. #$^^$$...Punched a provisional and played it in. Drove up and found my original in play. Then I heard "hope you have good insurance" as a man pointed to a broken window. After a brief civil conversation, he started cracking up and said my ball hit the roof and a contractor broke his window.   ha ha ha...good one...we talked about 15 minutes then I moved on. 
 
Anyways, I played very well and if felt good. Hope we all are playing soon. 

Well done and we all hope this is over soon.

Took the afternoon off yesterday and played in some great weather.  All pins were pulled and relied on the pin sheets which I didn't quite trust and i didn't have that visual so that was a bit different.  But great to get out on the course even though it was a bit over crowded.  The Clicgear 4.0 was great for it's first time out.  Really hit the ball well for the most part and left a lot out there.  Was even on the back 9 going into the last hole and had a mental lapse on my tee shot at 18th.  Also was on the edge of green on 3 of 4 par 5's and the other i was 15 yards short of green in fairway but managed only 1 birdie.  OK, done with complaints - Feel luck just to have had the opportunity to play.

Walked 9 holes to a +5. Just couldnt get up and down when I needed to and left some putts short as usual.

Took a double on #8. Git a litlte frustrated as 3 groups were on the box and  I ended up yanking one in the tress left. 

Thsnkful to be playing golf during all of this, but the course is geting a bit nuts and crazy busy.

I can’t recall the last time I played 18 holes at my home club without a single birdie. Well, that is until yesterday. Had a handful of birdie putts but nothing inside 15 feet. Missed them all. Left a few short that were center-cut. Blew a few others 8 feet past. My speed on the greens was awful.

Worst ball-striking round in a while! As mentioned above, walking everyday for a week-and-a-half is starting to take a toll. I’m taking today off. Sucks getting old.

Michigan opened up courses yesterday, so I got in 18! It felt great to get out.

2/14 FIR, 5/18 GIR, 49; 42: 91

Ball striking was great, really happy to see the off-season work paying off. Putting and driving was streaky, but it was really a few poor holes that stopped me from going lower. I think my mental health is better off when I golf ⛳😁

Shot 38-37 75. Felt like a million. Played with a mini tour player who shot 63 from the tips. That would have tied the course record but pool noodles in the cup made it not count. He also had a shot on 5 that probably went “in”for Eagle. We couldn’t tell because it was over a ridge from us but the ball was two inches from the hole when we got there.

Fun to watch

I shot 41 - 40. I had a triple bogey on a par 3 on the front 9. Just a bogey and it would have been 79.... rounds in the 70's have become elusive...lol.

Got back on the course yesterday and today.  Yesterday, played a 2 man best ball game with the Seniors.  I had some issues with my chipping and I wasn't putting particularly well on the recently punched and sanded greens and ended up shooting an 82.  My higher handicapped partner (assigned by the club) picked up a bogey putt on #17 with the reasoning that I was already in with a bogey.  The problem was that he stroked on that hole.  We were out of a tie for first by, you guessed it!,  ONE shot!  Oh well!

Today I shot a 42 on the front with 2 doubles and a 38 on the back for an 80 (over my handicap, but....).  Couldn't find a birdie for the day ... then again, neither did the other 3 players in my foursome.  We had 3 of us with the same handicap and one player who was a 16 handicap, so we played 6-6-6, giving the higher handicap player 4 strokes every 6 holes.  I ended up winning 1st ball on the first six, pushing both balls on the 2nd six, and won both balls when paired with the higher handicap player.

Good to be back on the course again!

Maybe that’s why I’ve only been playing 9 lately.

... "How'd you play?" I'll let you know next Friday when Illinois courses finally open. It should be a sitcom because I have not hit a ball on a golf course or range since October 2019 and that is the looooooooongest I have ever gone without playing. 🤪

So you might break (back into) the 80's 😉.

Played last Thursday at Eagle Pointe Golf Club. A course to the north east of Houston in the small town of Mont Belvieu just north of interstate 10. It is a real hidden gem in the area that is a public course that looks and feels like a private club. Elevation changes, tree lined fairways and just enough water to keep you on your toes. The course is always in great shape, the superintendent is great!

 Poor driving and missing every birdie chance plagued my round. Third round of my swing change...I think my old swing was trying to creep back in on my drives😬

Lost 4 balls, ouch!

But really enjoyed the day weather was beautiful and very thankful to be playing the game I love!
