After six years of playing, I got my first hole in one yesterday! Pretty crazy feeling to see the ball drop from the tee box. It was a slight downhill par 3 from 150 yards, got it done with a 9 iron!

You ever have one of those rounds you just can’t finish? That was me today. Hitting drives 280 in the fairway, hitting GIRs, but just slightly too far away to convert. Had 6-7 putts stop within 2 inches. Ended up with a 77. 

Yup, been leaving putts a few inches short the last 2-3 rounds.

I’d rather hit my irons less crisp and make every putt, than feel like my iron swing is flush, and watch putts stop 1” short. So hard to convince yourself to just hit it 1” further lol

+3 on the front, Even on the back to shoot a 75

1 Double, 4 bogeys, 1 Eagle, 1 Birdie 

Struck the ball so well today throughout the bag. Only thing that let me down was bunker play. 

Almost aced a 304 yard Par 4 and tapped in for Eagle! 




And I thought my 288 yard drive on Friday was good.

Yesterday adventure started with a drive to Chickasaw Point Golf Course, in OK, WELL, a storm came thru and it was suppose to leave and but it decided that it was going to stay over the course, with no intentions of clearing and the course started to get really saturated. Unable to play, decided to travel south west away from the rain and ended up at Mansfield National, (not the first or 5 choice but a course of convenience) 

All and all not a bad round considering, the fairways where good, the greens have seen better days. You know there might be an issue when the paint the greens green in June.

Anyhow, we played and enjoyed the round, one of the toughest par3 i played, 243yds, to a left pin position from a blind tee shot into the green. Not sure its a fair tee box.

Played with a new Ping G410 LST driver, and it was absolutely  amazing, by far one of the most consistent driving performance I have ever had. I eliminated the right side of the fairway , all shots was a just smallest of fade that held the line i was aiming at. The fairways I missed were not bad shots, just a little more left than intended . (was accustomed for the ball to cut back with my other driver, this one just stayed). And the last one I missed right because i wanted to adjust tee box position and didn't hit at all. (Re-tee from where I have been teeing off all day and it was down the fairway, moral of the story if is working don't change it )

Not a bad round, could have been much better without some sloppy chipping on a few holes. This is building confidence for playing next week.

Took a short trip down to Monterey yesterday (sat) to play Poppy Hills GC in a small club turni (but more like a friendly gathering of 20 or so people). The course was being very strict on their Covid Policies. Don't arrive too early, no holes on the putting green, chipping area closed, restaurant closed, leave right after your round, don't touch the flag sticks, Only 1 person per Cart...which was all well and good; fully understand. But they did seem to go a bit overboard. Only 25 practice balls per person before round only and 10 min warm up time (like they literally had an employee sitting there behind your practice who hands out the 25 balls and times you) and they wont let you buy more balls regardless of the fact that they had 15 or so stalls spaced out to use, and there was never more than 4 people hitting at a time. The topper for me though was an extension of the 1 rider per cart to the following: Groups of 4 players, 1 rider per cart, 2 carts per group...So they are making half the group walk, but charging the same amount to all players. That irks me, regardless of the fact i was planning to walk anyways. Still don't like that...

On to the round, after not getting in my typical 80 or so warm up shots, or getting to roll my ball into a cup prior to playing I wasn't sure what to expect. It was an overcast day, but just warm enough that I could take the jacket off (helped that I was walking). Started off a bit rough hitting a trap off the first tee, but being a par 5 was able to recover pretty well for par. Hooked my tee shot into the trees on 3 and struggled to recover and lead to a double. Few holes later and a few missed putts and I was already 4 over for the day with 12 more holes to go still...time to open a beer...And good timing too, finished the front going Par, Birdie, Eagle! To get back to 1 over for the front nine. Sadly, with exception of 1 good par 3 on the 15th, the rest of the round didn't keep up and I fell back down to a solid, but somewhat disappointing 5 over 76 (par 71). Putting let me down a bit as I lipped out about 4-5 putts inside 6 ft (most of which more in the 3' range). All in all it was a nice round and was happy to get my first eagle of the year in the books, though I have no idea how I managed it:

Par 5 9th hole, little short @ 489 but playing uphill and slightly into the wind. It s a bit of a double dogleg with a trap protecting the inside corner on the tee shot. After playing my driver right center I had about 211 up hill to the flag. The flag was probably about halfway between the right edge of the green and where the flag in the stock photo below is, which means the landing area is quite small once you carry the trap protecting the front edge and to avoid bouncing though to the trap on the backside. I decided to choke down on a 3 wood and punch it up there best I could. Somehow I managed to hit it flag high on the fly AND it stopped before running off the green into the trap. Left me about an 18' putt which I rolled in for the 3. 



This photo had me thinking I was better than I was. You can see my tee shot up in the fairway about 50 yards off the green (just in front of the cart path sign in the fairway). Out drove my playing partner by about 60 yards. Riding high! Shamelessly even looked back at him and fake flexed. Hit my approach shot to the green and was left with about 7' for birdie. After marking my ball and cleaning it off I saw it...The fresh evidence of a cart path bounce. Apparently I didn't fly the corner by as much as I thought I did and was graced with a VERY beneficial bounce. Ego shattered, I missed the putt and tapped in for par before admitting to my partner the truth...







Nice round, great pics.  Looks like a nice course.

Shot 78 on Father's Day at what is normally is a difficult course for me. I think my best round there before was 84. Played really well from the tee. Hit 12/14 fairways. Iron play was really solid. Almost holed 2 chips. Putted really well besides one 3 putt where I just read the break on a 30 footer completely wrong and missed my 6 feet. The comeback just missed by a 1/2 inch. But all around very happy with my round. 3 birdies is the most I've had for a while as well.

Absolutely pitiful golf over the weekend...87 and an 86....just poor ball striking, all around, putting a lot of pressure on my so-so chipping to get it up and down.  Obviously, it didn't fare well.

Three-putted the final hole for bogey to shoot 80 [emoji35]

It happens. Didn’t deserve a round in the 70’s with hitting 5 wedges inside of 100yds fat and missing GIR because of it. Three putted a few holes as well. Some days it just isn’t happening! Lol
