Where did you get to play? Valley Brook opens this Friday and I'm chomping at the bit! Great play-by-play on how your shaking off the dust of confinement. I'll be wrapping up this 6-nights/week schedule on May 11th and we'll get together.

Rotating shifts are BRUTAL! When I got out of they military worked at a hospital we had a very odd schedule, 1 week day shift 7-3, the next week would be nights 11-7 and the week after was Wednesday-Friday 3-11 and Saturday & Sunday was 7PM-7AM sucked so bad. But I played ALOT of golf on the 2nd/3rd shift weeks

Shot 44/47:91 a Plantation Palms today. Greens were going south where a couple weeks ago they were great. So as we played I got an email fr9m Falcon’s Fire, a top notch club in Orlando. Offering a weekday rate to Florida residents of $29 plus tax. The course normally is $125 to $150 per round! As soon as I got home, I booked a foursome for my Tuesday group. Can’t wait to give it a go....

Played a few days ago and developed the sh***s midway through the front 9, shot a 45. Somehow pieced together a functional swing on the back and shot 3 over 38 with 5 1-putts. Golf is a funny game...

Took 4 days off with zero golf. planned on the range one day, but decided to just lsy low with a couple yard projects.

Walked 9 to a +5.  Nothing good or bad in any area with the exception of putting which saved me which saved my bacon from a +8 or worse.

Iron distance was good, but a taste off, so it left me some extra chips. 

Range session is in order today to work out some alignment and set up issues.

Thanks!

Awesome morning 65’, light wind sunny. 40 with 5 pars and 4 bogies. G410 driver still pretty good, irons good, not great but missed some very makable putts.
Hated to leave the guys after 9 holes but my knees talked me into leaving.
We got a new guy for Wednesday’s and he’s going to be OK.
That’s 2 new decent players joined us this week.

Tuesday & Wednesday no Bacon Boyz, actual decent golfers.
Monday & Friday (especially Friday) are “The Boyz”. Golf is the excuse to get out of the house for these guys. If it wasn’t so funny I’d move on but....

Played Eagle Pointe again today. Drove the ball well and only lost 2 balls today, but shot the same score today as I did last week. But I know I hit the ball better today just didn't get any puts to drop. Should have had 2 birdies on front and one on back. Back nine score was a little alcohol soaked 🍺 ! But it was ninety degrees and Coronas were going down nicely.

The Bacon Boyz were very subdued this morning, I think the lack of bacon & sausage is taking its toll.
Anyway played a decent 1 over with 2 birds. Course this morning wasn’t overly tough but I made it tough on a couple holes.
Weather beautiful 62’ w light breeze and sunny.
Getting anxious for the state to start opening up, slowly is OK but some opening

... What a day! After almost 6 months off I finally got to play a round of golf. 🤗 Turned out much better than I would have thought. Figured it would either be ugly or really ugly but I shot 1 over and it was only a little ugly. Lots of ups and downs as I was missing greens or leaving myself 30+ footers and very few legit chances at birdie. I rolled in a 35 footer that had a good deal of break and it just fell in the side. But I was just trying too make solid contact on the front 9 and shot 1 under. Started feeling more comfortable on the back 9 and got too cute with a couple of front pin downwind I took just enough club to land short or just on and the ball plugged short both times. Did not hit either super solid so that few yards of less carry really cost me. I should have taken more club and had 20 footers coming back. 

... It just felt awesome too get out again and I almost had the place to myself. With only 2 somes allowed and tee times 15 minutes apart, I figured it would be packed. I had a 1:45 and arrived at 1:35 and was surprised to see nobody on the first 3 holes. Starter said your partner isn't here so go ahead and tee off. Didn't catch anyone til #12 and a dad and his son waived me thru.  After since there has been NO GOLF in Illinois since last fall, a nice day in the mid 60's I was shocked to see it so empty. I have a 2:45 tomorrow and imagine Saturday will be full, but we shall see.

Finally got back out today after not playing since 3/22 (yeah, woe is me, but I don't pay Hawaii taxes to be taking a whole month off from golf!) and surprised myself. I thought it was going to be a lot worse than it was, but I ended up getting lucky a few times. Greens were somehow not filled in from whenever they were punched last. We've been on shelter in place orders since late March, so I'm not sure how these clowns ended up having such horrible greens, but I got to golf today so I'm going to stop being a little whiny b*tch!

39/42 for a lucky 81

4/14 FiR (2 of which were 4i's)

10/18 GiR

35 putts on bumpy greens I'll take it.

Sprayed driver to the right literally ALL day, which is weird because my miss is usually left. Irons were mostly very thin, need to work on strike for sure.

Played 9 holes last Saturday and another 9 yesterday.  Just a bit off with the game right now.  Tried to hit the range this week to get more reps and really was hitting them decently. 

Losing confidence in my tee balls and some approaches while on the course.  On the plus side, my chipping/pitching and putting were pretty good.  Counting back through, I was able to come up with a 43/42, so not great, but not as bad as I initially thought in my head.  Hope to get back out there soon and get back into the 70's.

Wow was it great to get out yesterday in Illinois. Played a quick 9 holes with my father in the morning and then 9 holes in the evening with my fiance. It was a beautiful morning with my dad, temperature was just right. Shot a 40 on the first 90; started out slow with bogeys on 1 and 2 and then was able to string some pars together. On the second 9 shot 41 but was able to birdie the 8th hole and had a couple other good looks. It was so nice to get out! #GolfIsBack
