... I think those 2 smiles certainly tell a story. Awesome to have that kind of support from a non player. You are a rich man in the truest sense of the word.

Honestly...I played awful today. I don't know how or why....but it was ugly!! An 88! A fricken 88! Granted I hadn't seen the course before and there were some tricky holes, but SHEESH! That's just unacceptable in my book. 
I had time to reflect on my hour drive home and I decided I'm going to just forget it happened and try again. Tee times booked for 9am on Wednesday and Thursday. 
Until then, I will practice my drills and FROZEN IT (Let it go).  

There’s a long spring, summer & fall coming up so don’t beat yourself up too bad

I appreciate that, we love having fun together and I'm thankful to have someone who encourages my golf obsession.

So I played one of those goofy games that only college roommates could today. We got to pick 4 clubs plus putter - tees, mulligans, call backs and string to be determined by pick - ended up choosing driver, 9 wood 8 iron, 52 based tee choice, 1 mulligan and 1 call back per nine - I got 3 feet of string, other guy 7 feet and other 14 feet.

We made it to 15, I had won 4 and Tiger was a 10 hole carry over because on 11 i thought that I had hit it to 18 inches and me 3 feet would give me par on my missed 10 footer and an insurmountable lead - turned out that the double call back there caused me to “miss” by an inch.

About as much fun as anyone should have a golf course.

... Wow, my 2 favorite Phoenix courses! Congrats, neither of those courses are what I would call easy, so well done! 

Two days after my 5 over 77 I shot a 4 over at a 9 hole executive course. WTF?!😆

Early morning 9 Exec. Parred both 4 Pars, missed a 4’ birdie on one of them. Par 3’s, 2 birdies and 2 bogeys for an even this morning. Everything clicked.
Almost a COVID HI1.
One of the guys brought his own rake. Gotta love the stuff from Dollar Tree!IMG_0937.HEICIMG_0940.thumb.JPG.6f0bc4117690b2ee304ce151855d20a3.JPG

I should add, this was our largest number of players in about a month, 26 guys. Our 4some has 6 birds and 3rd 4some had 3 bird so maybe we’re slowly getting back to normal.
A Fireball shot by all after the 9th, Social Distance observed of course!

... Fireball shots remind me of playing in Phoenix with a couple about my age that announced on the first tee we would be taking shots after every birdie. I told them I don't drink and the gentleman said that was not a problem and he would drink my shot for me. Kind of a rough start but I finally had a birdie on 9. He gladly took my shot and all was good. I got hot on the back and I birdied 13, 14 and 15. As he broke out the shot glasses on 14 his wife whispered to him "No more of Sam's shots!" and then on 15 after my birdie putt fell she declared "ALL shots are postponed for the rest of the day!!!" and took the bottle from his bag LOL. She said to me they usually have 1 maybe 2 shots a round and she was afraid that after 5 shots in 6 holes he might be just a little drunk.

Got out for a lunch time 9 holes and had a fairly good round.  As it progressed, i got out of my own head and made some solid, aggressive swings at the ball and ended up with a 38 due to a few bad tee balls early in the round where I ended up in a hazard.  Played that last 5 holes at 1 under after a tough start.   Putting really well, but continue to play too much break the majority of the time.

Hole 1 - 450 yd par 4 dogleg left.  Hybrid to left side of fairway but had 208 with a bit of breeze.  4 iron was short right. Great pitch with 58* to 10 ft., but downhill quick putt was tentative - Bogey

Hole 2 - Straight on Par 4 - 424yd - 140 PW  pushed pin high left.  Great chip to 3 ft. Par

Hole 3 - 172 yd par 3 - 7 iron pulled a bit on right side of green, but pin is on far left side leaving a 50 ft.  Decent putt but missed a 5 ft putt coming back - Bogey

Hole 4 - 420 dogleg left - Terrible tee shot - push/slice left and in hazard - 160 left with a little wind at back  - Great 9 iron to 20 ft.   Over read break, but good speed - Bogey

Hole 5 - 214 yd par 3 into stiff breeze - Hit a soft cut hybrid wonderfully, but was still a bit much and off back of green - delicate chip of about 65 feet and is all downhill. Landed about 3 paces on and distance was perfect but misread and had 6 ft left and made it - PAR

Hole 6 - 520 yd par 5 sharp dogleg right - Hit a decent tee ball but took too much out of dogleg and just in the trees.  - punch out  to fairway and left with 168 downhill - 8 iron to 20 ft - Another good putt but reading too much break. Tap in Par

Hole 7 - 382 yard par 4 up hill - Great drive with a baby cut and left with 91 yards.  Sand wedge off side hill lie came off perfectly to 5 ft.  Birdie

Hole 8 - 380 yd par 4 down hill - Good drive with 10 yard draw - stance is on path so i take a drop and now just off fairway - 71 yards left, hit a 2/3 SW to 10 ft, downhill slider and play too much break (again) tap in Par

Hole 9 - 376 yd par 4 dogleg right - Hit a lucky toey draw that carried long enough to be in a great spot.  110 yd - SW to about 18 ft.  Hit putt a bit hard for line, but tap in range - Par

I usually pass on the Fireball Shots. It was after the round and I felt pretty good.
The Fireball thing started a couple years ago and oddly enough by guys who never make birds.

After yesterday's disastrous, back 9, I ran out and played that 9 again. It was a bit better, ending with a 45 but that short Par 3 over the water ate 4 balls today😡. I'm getting a complex. I did birdie a long Par 4 and got a par on the other par 3. Regardless it was a beautiful day with no one on the course. Technically we're closed on Monday/Tuesday until Memorial Day, but as a member, if you have your own cart you're ok to play. 

This is our #13, a par 4 and is the 4th handicap hole on the course. Sharp dogleg right. Yes you can hit over the trees on the right but you'll have either really high rough or bunkers to greet your ball. 

IMG_6828.JPG

#16, another par 4 and the number 2 handicap hole. A pretty, 400 yd hole with a really tough approach, mostly guarded by bunkers. Note the trees on the left in the background. The last photo is a close-up the same group of trees and the eagles nest on the course.

Yay got out again. Getting out of the big tree, I noticed it was already 77 degrees with a high of 86 on the way, I was basically hoping to get 9 in before I died. This track has so serious hills. Then the phone rang and it was one of my boys telling me that today was the first day of carts allowed! I was ecstatic to say the least.

five bogeys and only one birdie, but it ended up as a solid round. I bumped my driver up to 11.5 from 10.5 to see how that worked. Not so well against the wind but real nice with it.

stay safe my friends!

Got to play my first round of 18 for the year. I shot a 90 and am not too upset with that score considering my game inside of 100yds was atrocious.

I'm happy with how I was hitting the ball off the tee, just need to get some work in with my wedges.
