Once again started my round off slightly rough then the back 9 had me rolling on the par, bogey, and birdie train. I then hit a bad 7i which lead me to shooting a 8 on a par 4. Broke 100 but could have shot my best ever round on a course that was playing tough with very sloped greens that were fast and fun.

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!

Played yesterday, should have not, too damn hot.

Started front 9 with a double, made some great up and down middle and finish the front 9 with another double.
Back 9 just got worse, never got anything really going. 
Double 3 out 4 of the par 5... can improve your score doing that.💩 🤮

Need to take a nap!

41-40 today at my favorite course. No penalties, but the only birdie was a wedge on a par 5 I knocked to two feet.

Fast greens are killing me right now, I can't sink anything.

Shot a 98 today that could have potentially been high 80's if I hadn't taken a few penalties off the tee and avoided 2 blow up holes. One of them involved 3 chips from well below a raised green that rolled right back down at me.

Given that it was my first full 18 of the year, I ain't mad about the score.

I am, however, mad about the below. I hit it off the tee on a tight fairway and the ball went maybe 20 yards and it sounded awful. I looked down and went "huh". Looks like I'm in the market for a 3w shaft with a Callaway adapter!

I know, right??

I pulled the adapter, it looks like layers on the bottom of shaft just started coming apart. The outer layers of the shaft are still in the sleeve, and it looks like it was happening just where the sleeve was. I'm going to try cutting it a little bit above where the splintering was happening and put it back together. It'll be maybe an inch and a half shorter and a bit stiffer, but if it works, then I've saved myself a bunch of $$$.

The in-laws took me up to a different course today, The Falls at Barber Creek in Kent City, Michigan. I played there last summer and it's a gorgeous little course.

I say little because the course tops out at 6,004 yards from the back tees. But for what it lacks in length it makes up for tight tee shots and small, very undulating greens with difficult pin placements. So many sucker pins on the course today.

It was very hot today, and the ball was flying well. I played pretty darn well overall. I struggled with the driver early on hitting one ball OB and one ball into the water, but during the middle, middle-end of the round I hit some really nice iron and wedge shots. Because the course is short, most of the back nine I didn't hit anything longer than 4 hybrid off the tee.

Birdied number 11 and parred three of the four par 3s, which really helped my score. Unfortunately, I couldn't hold it together on the last hole. I knew I was going for a 38 on the back with a par, and I tried to chew too much of the hole off the tee. I hooked my driving iron into the massive left fairway bunker, caught my sand shot heavy to about 30 yards in front of the green and then unfortunately caught my pitch heavy as well, landing just short of the fringe. Chipped to about four feet but sadly two-putted for a 40. 

I still need to work on trusting that if I start the ball right of target that it will come back. For much of the front I hit irons perfect distances but they drew left of target. On the par three No. 7 hole that really hurt me as I ended up left of the hole chipping downhill to a pin tucked at the back of the green. I bumped the ball about a yard short of the green and it ran on, but left me an awful downhill putt. I ended up three-putting from about 10 feet. Ouch.

Well that looks amazing. Love water features on a course, don’t get that much around here

Nice looking course.  Are there sucker pins on small greens?  🤔

Probably true. 

Just seemed like every pin today was guarded by a bunker or perched on a shelf. Granted, my home course has very large round greens without any trouble in front of them. So everything seemed like a tough pin placement in comparison.

I guess I don't think about sucker pins, since I'm not good enough to attack pins.  I aim for the middle of greens, and I consider myself lucky to hit the green.  If my ball is near the pin... well, I just tip my hat!  😃

Sugar Bush in Garretsville. I grew up playing with my dad. We lived about 20 minutes from it. Now that I'm on CLE west, I still drive out 2 or 3 times a year.

Able to get out this morning and play Antler Creek in Falcon, CO.  AC is a long course, 8000yds from the tips.  No way I could do that.  We played from the blues (7000) which are still a bit too long for me.  My buddy wanted the blues so why not?  Good to stretch yourself every so often.  Or it was today.

 

42/42 which is pretty good for me. Driver was missing most of the day and on a 7000yd course that doesn’t help.  Good news. Is that the chipping and putting were spot on.  Saved my bacon!

I also had some really good shots today and the birdie came on a drive that went right and kicked right but I knocked it to about 10 feet.

Sir, I've noticed you're wearing a Cobra hat and there's no Cobra clubs in the bag. Honestly, that's s nice looking course and great round!

That's a great round on a beast of a course! Had to look at pictures of the course online and that place is beautiful! Great prices, too.
