Today was a good day.  First hole in one ever.  50° Cobra King wedge from 120 yards.  Hit just past the hole and spun back in. Shot 73 to tie my lowest round ever. Won my match 8 and 6

Un-bloody-conscious! I still can't believe it but I shot a 79! 57% FIR 33% GIR 30 putts.  

I got a hole in one on the first hole today. Makes for a really enjoyable round. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

Balboa Golf Course today. My luck with the 3W off the tee expired the other day apparently. 

96, 92 ESC (41/55) - 1 birdie, 6 pars, 5 bogeys, 2 doubles and 4 quads. I legitimately felt like I lost my swing on the back 9. 

FIR 3/14 (21%) - The front wasn't too bad, but I was all over the place on the back. 

GIR 7/18 (39%) - To make matters worse, the shanks made their way into my game on the back. Blah!

35 putts, four 1 putts and three 3 putts. SG putting, -5.740

I'm glad I was able to cross another San Diego course off the list, and while I ended the round with a par, +16 over four holes just isn't going to cut it. I was seriously disappointed as it was inexplicable. I'm shaking it off though and I'm looking forward to getting in a couple more rounds this weekend with my driver in the bag!

Nice! I remember Balboa as I was stationed at 32nd Street. But of course the Navy had too many plans for me so didn't play golf there.

32nd Street....now that brings back some memories.  Our sub pulled in there for a couple of days of R&R following a rigorous operational exam.  We did let off some steam!  😄

The score doesn't reflect, how i felt hitting the irons, wedges and putting (backyard practicing wedges and putting pays off) which was pretty good considering not playing consistently, Driver was stuck, couldn't get around it, push a lot to the right , but silly mistakes here and there added up quickly. Specially on the par 5 butcher them
Hopefully in the next few weeks when i start to play more regularly the scores will start to come down.image.thumb.png.366971b7f9caf35a59c28fe6f5bc3967.png

I didn't putt as well on the front - total putts for the 18 = 35. However strokes lost were in the first three holes - which are the easiest  par 4s. Two doubles and a single ruined my score. By the time I got to #4 things were working a bit better and I got a par there. 

Ah, yeah double-bogey avoidance is one of the fastest ways to drop score.  Were the doubles due to poor decisions or just bad swings?

Stiff back = bad swings. Didn't take the time to do some flexibility exercises before hand = 5 strokes lost in the first 3 holes. That'll teach me. .

Like dog poop. bacon Boyz were alive and well this morning, 23 guys.
I hit a couple of decent irons but driver was MIA and putter was trying but couldn’t get going. Lost one ball on a short Par 3.

I'm guilty of not stretching as well...  Often times I get to the course a few minutes before the tee time (mainly due to fatherhood responsibilities).

Stiffness = no good for golf.

Drove the ball as good as I have last couple years! But my approach game was awful and my putting was one lip out after another and average first putt was from 32 feet!

May be time to put the Black Cats back in the bag and try to shake something up 🏌️‍♂️ even though Jack Nicklaus never blamed his clubs...but I'm no Jack Nicklaus!

... I take Covid 19 seriously living in Illinois and close to Chicago, one of the hot spots. I stay home as much as possible and have been out a few times to Whole Foods. Been lucky enough to play golf 5 times since the ban was lifted even though we have had the wettest May in history. Played with a friend yesterday and was back at the same course today. Tough to get tee times because it is 2 some only and spaced 15 minutes apart. That is 8 golfers an hour at a course that normally has 8 minute intervals and 4 somes. 

... But the guy I was to play with showed up wearing a mask in his car alone and came up to the starter that I am friends with and I and said "you guys are too close together" when we were a good 8 feet apart. He was standing 15 feet away and said he wanted to play alone. The starter said that was not possible with only 8 golfers an hour. The guy looked at me, then the starter, shook his head and went back to his car. I would add you have to pre pay with no refunds and he just left. I think I may have dodged a bullet as it could have been a very uncomfortable day. With no putting greens/ranges open, I used the time to play a practice round, hitting multiple shots and trying different things like high/low, fades and draws, etc. It turned into a good practice day so no complaints. next 10 days look like rain so glad I got in some practice. May 29th Illinois goes to 10 minutes tee times and 4 comes allowed again so this was probably the last day of severe Covid restrictions. 

... How did I play? Extremely well and extremely poorly which is how practice rounds go. Lost some balls and made some birdies and now I am just waiting for my T100-S irons o show up!  

I think you’re correct, the guy was a bit too paranoid.
You and your Bud were OK.

I never remember to post here but since I tweaked my back yesterday, I’m sitting here watching everyone else post 😑

Played at Patty Jewitt in Co Springs yesterday.  Patty has been closed due to people not social distancing.  People not caring/following the rules resulted in the course being shut down for 2.5 weeks.  <Insert insulting descriptions of these people here>  They’ve just opened up again.

The good thing about being closed for 2 weeks?  The course was in really, really good shape.  Since I’ve started playing again, 4-5 yrs ago, I’ve never seen it in this good of shape.  Greens were as good as I’ve seen anywhere.  Patty is a public course run by the city.  It’s a heavily played course.  If you like 6hr rounds, this is the place to be.  To see it like this was a joy.

Playing was hit & miss.  Couldn’t find a driver swing, only hit 2 solid drives all day.  This killed me on a couple of holes.  Dogleg right par 5, pushed the drive into the trees.  I was able to punch it through the trees and forward but didn’t make it back to the fairway.  The rough was thick and my next shot from 153 was right but hole high.  And in the thick stuff again.  Butchered the pitch and then ...  And then ...  Ended up with an 8 on a par 5.  Ugh.

But the iron play was pretty good. The shot of the day was on a 163yd par 3, uphill with a breeze against us.  We figured it would play around 180.  Knocked it 3 foot short of the hole and I did make that putt.  Yay for me!  Only birdie of the day although there were some good looks.

Fun day, great weather.  Can’t wait to go do it again.
