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

I hate when designers do this. I call them “rinky-dink” holes. If one has to tee off on a par 5 with an iron, that’s ridiculous.

Par 5 3rd. 476 yards. 220 straight over the top of a tree, there are about 3 people at our club that can do this and one is left handed. Everyone else has to hit in the 175-190 range away from tree or hope to punch under it. Green is double decked and probably about 15 yards wide. One of the hardest shortest par 5's I have played.

And the best part that's from the whites from the blues because of the tee box orientation and overgrowth of trees it usually 6 iron for me. 

So short tees I hit 5w. Back tees I hit 6 iron.

Played an early 9 and for a change it wasn’t 4 over, it was 5 over. Courses have been sloppy and hot and humid so ball not traveling and no roll. It was a happy 41.
Monday & Tuesday 9’s about the same. I don’t like the sloppy w Heat & Humidity, one or the other I can deal with.

It was 45 degrees, overcast and breezy teeing off at 7:30 this morning. Our threesome was first out and we had a very solid group today.

Had trouble getting the body moving in the cold and managed to pump 2 tee shots dead right into the trash on the second hole. Barely kept the third ball in play, scraped a 7-iron just short of the green and chipped in for triple... neato. Added one more bogey on the 6th after another ill-timed shove off the tee.

Finally made a move that resembled my golf swing on the Par-3 7th and things improved from there. Birdied the 8th after knocking an 8-iron stiff, chipped in again from ~20 feet on the 9th and added another great birdie on the 10th to bag the Turkey. Easy up & downs for birdie on each Par-5 on the back and I was back to (-1) for the day thru 17. 12-footer for par on 18 just fell in the front edge to stay in the red. You know what that means... first celebratory ritual of the season for me!

Thoughts for the day: My driver still needs a ton of work. The Nike Method Concept C1 is definitely staying in the bag for now (24 putts today), only left one putt short all day. (-5) over the final 12 holes showed some really nice grit after the balky start. It’s a treat getting in a full loop and back home for work by 10:30am.

Nat Sherman’s! Haven’t seen them in a while, good smoke

As bad as the last 4 weeks have been... I shot 38 in league tonight. I'll take a 3 in front of my score any time! Hopefully it continues.

Great job!!  Keep positive and it will.

Last night was men's night.  Shot awful except for one hole.  Made a birdie and walked away with a gross skin for $$ payout.  Just goes to show, in skins games, it only takes one good hole.

I tested a Nike Method B1 about 5-6 years ago and that putter was serious money, and looked just like a bat mobile too- great putter...

I got to ride this and it was so fun I don't even care that we didn't finish the round! Also that new Nike bag is sexy.

Did the course offer those to ride as an upcharge or how did that work? Could you ride it out on the fairway?

Looks like an awesome time.

Is that your bag, or did they make you switch over to a bag that was fitted for the cart.   I have ridden the Finn and Phat scooters at the PGA Show, they are definitely a blast.

Most courses are charging an upcharge of $20 over the normal round price to rent them.   It may vary from location to location obviosuly, but they have to be paid for somehow 🙂

Most courses that have them, just follow the normal cart rules.  As long as it's not a CPO day, you can take them anywhere in the fairway you would normally go. 

Just don't try to go Evil Knievel and jump over the bunkers 🙂

Those would be fantastic as an option in my area, but I haven’t seen them anywhere. Probably banned in California due to potential lawsuits when some crusty old man (me) falls over and crashes and breaks his (my) hip...

looks like a blast...

Nice walk this morning - gorgeous weather and managed to get in a full loop.

We were second group out at 7:10am and had a full foursome, so I joined the fellas on the middle tees to keep things easy. The swing was under control from the start and I hit a whole bunch of good shots. My playing partners peeled off at the turn and I moved back to the tips for a quick inward half.

Had a mess of ~15 footers slide by on the high side and didn’t make a single birdie. It was just one of those days where the swing felt great but the score didn’t match. Had a 10 footer for birdie on the 220yd 16th that went all the way around and sat on the edge. A little bummed that I didn’t get to cross that one off the MGS birdie/eagle every hole challenge.

13/14 FWY, 13/18 GIR, 32 PUTTS (+3)

Thoughts for the day: My game feels close. I’m planning to grind at the short game complex all weekend and try to post some low numbers next week. My girlfriend enjoyed walking the course so much last night that she decided to push my cart for the whole round again today. Halfway thru the back 9 she asked me how much caddies get paid and if we had any more PB&J sammies in the bag. I need to start packing plenty of snacks to keep her happy, because being able to just stroll around the course is the best thing ever and I cannot afford to have her find out how much cash she should be making as my looper.
