How'd you play?

I'm about a week behind on this one.

 

Played last Saturday. Driving has been horrendus, popping up everything. Long irons are still struggling, short irons and chipping are on point and saving me right now. Just one three putt for the day which is a win. Ended up with a cool 89.

What I will say, as if I needed a reminder, is I'm old (maybe just older) and I can't just rush to the tee box anymore.  42, and active and working out enough to have sore muscles, and I can't play this game if I don't stretch thoroughly,

Hahahahaha

wait till your 64!

Thursday was the first day of the 2020 MGS PNW Golf Outing with my wife,  @Thin2win and @fixyurdivot at Indian Canyon GC in Spokane, WA.  Lots of fun!!

Played well on the front nine with a 39, but the golf gods flipped a switch at the turn!!  Shot 47 for an round of 86.  Tough putting day for all of us.  Putting uphill was... well, really putting uphill.  We couldn't get the ball to the hole.  Not kidding!!  There were some 4 putts.  I had 34 putts total with two 3-putts.

THat looks like a good time. Question is....who won....??

****Alert ***** Alert!******Alert!******

sluggo shoots a new PB today !!!!!!!!!!!
 

-4.......    67. .......    -4. .....    67!   .....

It was a Great day to say the least, and the oddest thing, it was so easy.

crushed every drive, crushed all irons, putter was a demon, it was like I was smooth and easy, but the ball was just flying off the clubs. Narrowly missed about 3 or 4 other putts too. Got a chip in just off the green too. Just couldn’t miss...🏌️‍♂️

 

Congrats on the great round! Now if you can figure out how to stay in the zone for your next round, let me know.  I shot -3 69 on Friday, then a +4 76 yesterday(on a slightly easier course). 

I'm going to take today off and hopefully try again Saturday.

Tough call.  But if playing again today, set the same level of expectation you had going into yesterday's round. I haven't played 3 days in row in awhile, so my body needs the rest today, and I also need to mow and get some other projects done.  But if you have the time and still feel good, I'd say play if you have the chance!

elbow started feeling funny a few rounds ago, ignored it and played 2 days ago, first two holes were ok I thought, bit of a twinge but Its a beautiful day so I'm carrying on.

On the 3rd tee halfway up my backswing I though I'd been shot in the elbow with a red hot needle!

tried a couple more times and dropped the club it was that painful.

Had to walk off and research t'interweb for the reason and fix. So it looks, and feels, like tennis elbow, torn tendons and muscles etc

Watched videos on how to recover quickly and been doing them the last 2 days plus I've strapped a bandage over it, going to try again tomorrow as I was playing pretty good with long game no issues and chipping and putting coming on enormously.

I'm going to try a half swing and very very light right hand pressure and see if I can play, wont be the same not being on both toes and hitting hard but I WANT to play...🙄

I've had some elbow issues as well.  Haven't pulled the trigger yet, but was chatting with a golf coach recently who said the Theraband Flexbar was the best treatment he knew of for Tennis/golfer's elbow .  Available on Amazon or other places as well.

League last night, not exactly the round we were looking for.

48; 1/6 FIR, 1/9 GIR, 17 putts, 4 drops😫

The negatives:

Really struggled off the tee. It was super windy, which made some already tough tee shots even harder.

10's a sharp dogleg left, and I pushed my tee shot right. Left me with almost a longer approach into the green than I started from the tee, ended up with a double.

13's a par 5 with a tree that makes an impossible tee shot for any right to left shot shape. I pushed mine right into the tree, which shot right back and ended up at about a 25 yard drive lol. Absolutely smoked a 3W with my next shot, which should have carried a stream and ended up in or very near the fairway. I couldn't find it anywhere, so figured it must not have carried the stream. Ended up with a frustrating triple.

15 and 16 are both par 4's into the wind, water to the left and a road to the right. My miss is a pull hook, and the road to the right can scare me into the water; which is exactly where both tee shots ended up yesterday.

The positives:

No 3-putts! Can't remember the last time I did that! Scrambled pretty well, and lag putted well. Had a few close-ish putts I burned some edges on, but happy with the putting all around.

Had great 6i, 2x 7i, and 8i shots that grew my confidence in my shorter/mid irons.

Laced my 3W right down the middle on the 18th, about 280 with a helping wind. That'll be the tee shot I take to my next round, trying to forget about the other 5 😉 .

Honestly felt like I had a terrible round, and was only net +2. I'm interpreting that one of two ways: either I'm set up to make a pretty solid drop in my handicap, or I'm worse than I think I am. 😅

Played the Raynor course yesterday in the grounds of the Greenbrier. Really nice layout and classic what you see is what you get. Cool that the bunkering is flat with sodded faces which I would not have expected in WV. Played the 3 par 5’s in four under thanks to two birds and a hole out eagle from the green side bunker. Started to fade a bit down the stretch and dunked one in the water on 18 to shoot a -1 69. Overall a good round and loved both courses at The Greenbrier.

Playing lots of golf while on vacation, which is my idea of a perfect vacation. I was thinking about it during my last couple rounds, I can't recall ever having this much fun on the golf course. Taking lessons this past fall and the result of having some sort of control over the golf ball is such a wonderful feeling.

Thursday 18

- 40/41 = 81 (+9)
- 6/15 FIR
- 10/18 GIR
- 35 Putts (1 3-putt, 15 2-putts, 2 1-putts)

A really solid round for me again. Feeling much better with the putter than I was a few weeks ago. Had a few first putts come up just short, but the lines are so much better now.

I made a few more strategy changes to how I play a few holes and that's helped me get off to better starts on the back nine, and in the process, lower scores overall.

This was a 70s round in the making until I pulled my tee shot OB left on 14.

Friday 9

- 39 (+3)
- 5/8 FIR
- 2/9 GIR (1 birdie)
- 14 Putts (5 2-putts, 4 1-putts)

Played the back nine this morning since I played the front nine only on Wednesday. I've committed to a new to me chipping technique for the past few rounds and today it was working really well, so despite not hitting a ton of greens I still scored well! 

Driving cooperated reasonably well with me today, but two of my five attempts still were not great. Pulled left on No. 16 and then sent the ball onto No. 18 fairway on No. 17. Luckily I was able to recover well both times. 

Hit a really nice push draw drive on No. 18, stuck my 54 degree wedge to about 10 feet and sank the birdie putt to finish sub-40. Nice putting round for me again.

Normal I guess. Had a good front. Played catch up on the back. Finished poorly to make it an average round of 88. That's my average all time on the course I played. I will again think about how close I was to a great round and stay positive. It will come together!
