+4 75 (40/35) 6/13 FiR 8/18 GiR 28 putts First ace today! #17, 121y PW that dunked into the cup. Best part was the group in front was part of our group, and waved us on since we we

... Well I have had 4 months of mediocre, out right bad and some occasionally pretty decent golf but only 3 total at par or under out of about 100 rounds. That said, I think I am finally figuring out

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

Rough night in league last night, especially at the beginning. I was +7 after two freakin' holes with two lost balls and 3-putts on both greens. Fortunately, I somewhat straightened things out and was +6 over the remaining 7 holes (with another 3-putt). I did par the hardest hole on the course, which was playing into the stiff breeze we had after the rain cleared out. It was also the first time in a long time I have lost 3 balls in 9 holes, two of which were skulled wedges over the green and into the woods. I was happy to find 2 dozen golf balls had been delivered when I got home (Father's Day gift from youngest daughter) - it appears I will need them for our Sunday MGS outing.

I have a self-imposed rule - if I lose a sleeve of balls in a single round, I switch to whatever I have found and kept in my bag. The last three holes I played a Bridgestone Tour BX I had found. Wow, I think I love that ball. I may have to consider buy some to test head-to-head with the Z-Star.

Rough night in league play... got caught in a 20 minute downpour and was hitting the ball all over the course.  Had a couple of good looks after some insane recovery shots, but couldn't put anything together.  Hit a couple of pulls, hit a couple of blocks... i guess that's what happens when you take a week in between playing

Down in WV at the Greenbrier and today I had the pleasure of playing the Old White. Played as a single with just me and my caddy and what a blast. Shot 76’from the tips playing at 7,500 and no role. Just a fun place to play.

The interesting part of my round came before I played. There was a junior tournament on one of the other courses and one of the kids playing was in the putting green when I backed my cart up from the range to go putt. His father came over to tell me how rude I was to interrupt his routine on the putting green and I should apologize. Of corse my stock answer as hell f’in no. Well I grabbed my putter and went to too roll some putts, at which point he tells his son to work on his putting so he doesn’t end up like me with a long putter. Said it loud enough and in my direction to get a response. Told him Old White from the tips, zero shots and $100 a hole...let’s f’in go.

Of course he found reasons to not play and well I had fun then saw his kid is DFL in the event and thinking it is so he can get out of dealing with his father. No Ill will at all to the kid but his father can bite me.

- 43 (+7)
- 0/7 FIR
- 2/9 GIR
- 18 Putts (9 2-putts - at least I'm consistent!)

Took today, tomorrow and Friday off of work to spend some time with the wife and work on house projects. She suggested going to play a round in a cart this afternoon, so I played while she enjoyed a Bloody Mary and rode along. She's 13 months removed from a less-than-stellar shoulder surgery and is finally on the mend, so hopefully this is the last time she is only able to ride along because she would definitely prefer to be playing.

Seven bogeys and two pars. Scrambled well but couldn't chip or get a putt to drop.

Rough day off the tee - left, left, right, long, left, right, left. Punched out from 2-3 foot tall grass on No. 1, got really cozy with a pine tree on No. 5 (managed to crouch and choke up on the steel of my wedge to punch it out) and just generally struggled with the tee game today. Ironically I hit and parred both par threes, which is the first time I've done that this year (and perhaps, ever).

Still, I could have shot at least a few strokes better if I could chip. Had great opportunities for chip-and-downs on Nos. 1 (just behind green), 2 (just behind green), 3 (just short of green) and 4 (just behind green) and did not hit a single chip within one-putt range.

We had planned on 18 holes but the course was busy, so after nine holes I elected to pack it in and participate in the Bloody Mary drinking. Nice way to spend an afternoon!

First round with the Honma irons and shot 78 from the tips (7100) at Pine Dunes in Frankston, TX. The course rating and slope from the tips is 74.4/131. I played very well. I left so many putts just to the right of the holes. I hit 44% of the greens just because of distance and aim adjustments. GIR were 2 on the front, 6 on the back. Driver was on fire again, hitting 71% of fairways, and putting was at a 1.61 avg. Irons were great! One miss left due to a bad swing. I had a ton of confidence once I got the yardages in my head.

This course was once rated by Golfweek as the “Best Course in Texas”. Great layout, great conditions, greens roll so true.... Second time here, and it’s one of my favorites. Thinking man’s course!!! $40!!!

Damn it’s always great to have a fantastic course for short money! He’ll of a round with new irons no less good work!. What did you chalk up the front 9 green misses? Strictly not knowing distances with the new clubs?

Great round, especially with the new irons. I'm glad you got to go out and enjoy them! 

Edit: I just looked up photos of the course and its beautiful! At $40 that's a steal.

Yes, plus finding “today’s swing”... I was a little hesitant with where I was aiming due to my two-way miss, so once I knew it wouldn’t be there I was good. I came-up short on three. On 17, after a 290 yard drive, I was still 215 out into a slight wind... Came-up short there because there wasn’t anywhere to miss.

Played Homestead Farms in Lynden, and went 46-46 for 20-over-par 92, my personal best at that course (net score of -2), but the two nines couldn't have looked any more different.

Front nine was full of highs and lows. Triple bogey on 1 and 4, but managed to get to the green in 2 on the par-5 third hole and 3-putt for par, one of three pars that 9.

Back nine I totally lost my touch with the putter (20 putts on back 9) but managed to grind out a bunch of really tough bogeys, and ended the day with a GIR+3 putt bogey on 18, the signature hole with an island green (I've been told it's the only par 5 hole with an island green in Washington State, but I can't confirm that).

https://youtu.be/PrzaZWGoZKYBeautiful round today. We are in a drought right now but the greens at the local club are just immaculate. I had a very good day started par, bird, par and ended 37 (+2). Little stumble in the middle but was not in bad positions and could have easily went par on 4 instead of bogey (3 putt). 6 was a bogey and could have been par shorted myself on the chip and left myself a 10'.

IMG_4697.PNG.ea902d5210564d110229ac3e37230592.PNG

I was very happy with 2 good stretches of pars/bird (1). Been working on my hip rotation and am not quite there yet but felt so much better today and it showed on my fairway %. Was dialed in on greens as well with 66% GIR. If I played 18 today I would have been confident going 7/9 on the next side.

IMG_4699.PNG.26c6c4d0f8599d356b49b45235dc250b.PNG

Drive average is still not where I want it to be but cannot complain hitting fairways.

No pictures just videos today but the course was beautiful.

Played well today for the first real time out this year. Shot an 81 but I moved up a tee box because I have been struggling mightily off the tee. Low and behold off the team I was fine everything else was pretty rough. Except for putting which was on point even under slow green conditions.
