Well I followed up that 75 with a horrible front 9 followed by a decent back

44/39

8/14 FiR

3/18 GiR

29 Putts

Had an issue blocking shots to the right today, and the first tee shot started it all. Triple on the first because I couldn't find my tee shot in the trees, followed by a double 2 holes later put me further over par after 4 holes than my entire previous round. 3 lost balls didn't help for sure. Got tired and my back started getting stiff, crazy because I only took one week off from the usual walking round. Oh well, maybe that 75 was just a lot of lucky shots after all 😔

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

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

I actually got out a lot this week. Shhhh......don't tell the wife.  Played 9 on Monday over lunch and again on Wednesday.  Then my boss asked me to play yesterday and we ended up playing 18.  I mean it was my boss so I was technically working if you think about it.  All three days, were very positive from a ball striking perspective. Made a slight grip change and a small change to my takeaway that seem to be working very well.  Putting still needs some work.

Monday 9 Holes

Score: 39 (1 double bogey - approach was just slightly pushed, but you cannot miss where I did and it went in hazard by green)

Fairways: 3 but all were no more than 5 yards off fairway on misses

Greens: 7

Putts: 18

Wednesday 9 Holes

Score: 37

Fairways: 4 (Huge Break on Par 5 that went into right trees and came back in fairway)

Greens: 3 (was a bit off on approaches)

Putts: 13 (Lower number mainly due to good chip shots and tap ins)

Thursday 18 holes

Score: 75   37/38 (White only tees out - but played mix yardage as some were in typical back tee range) Also didn't have driver in bag

Fairways: 6/13 (2 that were inches off fairway)

Greens: 9

Putts: 31 (Fair day)

Men's league last night - 9 hole match play:

My nemesis hole at our club is a tough 405 par 4,  where a normal drive puts water in play on the left and bunkers on the right,  uphill and a tight approach to the green. which is guarded by bunkers. I'm on in 2, not quite,  I was in the 1st cut. a 7i bump and run for about 20' gets me to within 3 feet from the pin and a short putt for a par. First par for me on that hole in almost 10 years of playing here (yes the hole got in my head). Oh and the guys we were playing were single digit handicappers - we took home 8.5 points out of 11.

Played there once, when the 9th was the 18th or vice versa. The fairway has a pretty good right to left slope.
Yea they switched 9s a few years ago and now #1 is probably the toughest opening hole in the area.

Shot a 76 with a triple bogey yesterday.  Was even par through 14 holes (started on the back nine) before my blow up on a par 5.  The triple consisted of a fairway bunker, an unplayable lie in the trees, a greenside bunker, and a terrible chip than led to two putts.  ⛄

And no, I don't actually carry a 2 wood.  It's just a different driver than I used last year so I tagged it as a 2w in Arccos to save my previous driver's data.

I took yesterday off to play and had to change venue, as almost everywhere had thunderstorms forecast all afternoon. So instead of traveling to one of my favorite courses I played the muni down the street, and it never rained. Shot an 80, which is ok, but I always feel like I could play better on this course, but the greenskeeper must have an attitude because the course is consistently set up tougher than a 116/70.5 rating slope would indicate.

Played at Bay Forest Golf Club ( my home course ) Thursday and it was summer HOT🔥. Started out slow and a little sloppy again like last week then on the back nine I felt pretty comfortable with my new swing feeling more natural and building some muscle memory to instill confidence. Could have shot a really good score but my putting was atrocious.

Are you changing your name to 4over?  

Since it rained, shouldn't it  be "godly slow"??    😇

Walked an early 18 this morning. Hung on for dear life most of the round and rode out 2 doubles, 2 three-putts and a bad ball striking day for an 85 but...it was a gorgeous morning!

81 (43/38)

4 birdies/8 pars

34 putts : /

10/13 FIR

9/18 GIR

Solid round playing at Ballantrae Golf Course here in Birmingham, AL. Had a stretch of 3 birdies in 5 holes (should have been 4 birdies). I made birdies, but also struggled with the putter at times, had 3 putts on 4 holes. Some of the holes were on ridges and I had downhill putts. I couldn't stop the ball for the life of me. Didn't learn from the first 3 putt... I have been working on my chips and had one fall this round. It was with my 60 degree about 30 yards out for birdie. Hit a low spinner, 2 bounces, checked, and rolled in the heart hitting the flag stick and staying in.

9 holes this morning.

Woke up sore and stiff, just could not get the hips moving. Had no speed today and my elbows were killing me after the crappy range session last night.

Got paired up with a Mom and her two kids; it was a nice walk and a beautiful day.

Somehow I found every green in regulation - 8 pars and 1 birdie. Hit a total of 2 shots the way I intended but everything was straight and no real stinkers. Planned to play 18 but the course was packed this morning and super slow so I headed home at the turn.

Thoughts for the day: This game is so different from one day to the next. I’m a big fan of these new UV sleeves. I should have started hunting for a new instructor when Tom Ness called it a career, because me and the mirror are not quite cutting it.

... I was listening to Pia Nilsson and Lynn Marriott from Vision 54 talking about that. How much sleep you get, what you eat, how much if any coffee, any aches and pains and a myriad of other variables make every day quite different when it comes to your golf swing. Figuring out what you have that day and adjusting is a key to playing well. And of course some days you just kinda have an empty tank.

Hey Man, I quickly see that handicap going to a +1 to +1.5. I would say that you are liking those Titleist clubs very well. Great scoring, especially at 67!

P.S. Don't ever apologize for shooting a great score.

 

... I was apologizing for the flippant start as sometimes humor does not translate in print. 🤪  And yes, I am liking the T100-S but honestly I think I could have been using my wifes clubs on that first 9 and shot the same score. Just never been that flawless for 9 holes. Here is how crazy in the zone I was. On a 151 yd par 3 with the pin front left and a bunker on that side and the green sloping away, I aimed 10 feet right of the flag. I missed my line a little and actually nicked the flag. So even my misses were right at the flag. Everything else was 15' or less. Came back to earth on the second 9 hitting 6 GIR's. One thing I did do, was anytime there was even a hint of being between clubs I took more club and trusted it without taking anything off the shot. I was either pin high or just short with only 1 iron past the pin by about 12' long.

Yep - sooo many variables to monitor.

I was up a little past midnight trying to finish a work project; didn’t get my typical 6 hours of sleep and have been feeling flat all day. Fought my swing a bit on the range last night so my hips were extra tight this morning. And when my elbows hurt (also range related) I might as well forget about speed. I intentionally cut out the caffeine prior to morning rounds but it might have actually helped if I had a cup this morning.

To your point on the ability to adjust - it’s undoubtedly beneficial to have some off days that are not reflected on the scorecard in the memory bank. Because tournaments do not wait for you to show up with your A-game. And the nice family I played with remarked that it was the best golf they had witnessed in person, which was a good reminder that it’s all relative.
