Slowly improving back to where i was... That being said my hybrid that was my most reliable club in my bag has gone missing (not literally lost, just can hit it) which is costing me dearly because I used to be able to recover from a bad shot or long par 4 or par 5 with that cluib. Can't figure out why all of the sudden I am unable to hit it

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 know the feeling.  I heavily rely on my hybrid as well; some days it works, some days it doesn't.  I think it's a setup thing with me, as I have a tendency to setup with the ball too far forward like I'm hitting driver.  When I move the ball back an inch or two, I make better contact.

I've tried that, anywhere from inside of front foot to middle, to almost inside of back foot and still same result... ugly

Exactly the same for me. I love my 3H but mosre common than not I set up like a driver and just skull it. When I set up like a 3w or a long Iron it plays much better. I just have to remember to play it back in my stance like a 4 or 3 iron

I don't think my score tonight is representative of how bad I played. Ended up +13, but could have been much worse if I didn't make a bunch of 6-10' putts, ending with 14 putts.

Strangely, driver was good for the first three driving holes, then went sideways.... Literally. Fresh off a birdie on a par 5, I smashed my drive but pulled into the woods. Ended up with a triple. Next hole flared to right, almost reaching the next fairway but had about 15 trees between me and the green. After playing bumper pool through the trees, ended up with another triple.

Irons were pretty thin all night, not a single solid shot. One I topped so bad I almost missed the ball entirely - after a beautiful drive, of course.

I chose not to play a rock for the hard rock challenge because it was first half playoff and we were in first place. Apparently I should have played the stupid Molitor in my bag. Couldn't have been much worse. Scratch that, it probably could have.

Atleast ya kept the score low that’s a plus.
The molitor might have bounced nicely off the trees though!

My wife and I treated our tax accountant to a round of golf today.  He's a good stick but has only played twice this year; he took a few mulligans. I wish I could hit the ball as far as he does, but I'm not 30 years younger, 6'5" and fit.  🤣

Shot 41/42 for an 83.  The good news was that I can mark off another hole in the MGS 2020 Birdie Challenge... #9 par 5.  The hole is a dogleg left with a pond short and right of the green starting 80 yards out.  Mounds and grass bunkers on the left; very narrow opening to the front part of the green.  Today the pin was way back right.  I hit a good drive but the 15 mph wind pushed my shot left to the rough at the corner of the dogleg.  Rough is short by very thick; hit a draw around a tree down the fairway.  I had 118 to the front of the green over the narrow fairway, but 148 to the pin over water.  I went for the front with a little cut and end up off the back of the green behind the pin.  Chipped in for no-putt birdie!!  I don't recall ever making a birdie with that pin location.

While knocking off another birdie hole was nice, the story today was my wife.  She shot her best round of the year... 84.  {remember what I shot?}  We would have tied except she 3-putted #18.  Pressure must have got to her!!  🤣  But I think my days are numbered.

I tend to believe it would have bored right through them, leaving a nice, clean hole.

Impromptu 9 holes with my son and dad today.

Only the 3rd time my son has been in course and did a lot better. He had a blast. my dad struggled but he actually purchased some lessons which he will be starting next week.

i struggled was trying to keep my sons head on straight and give him guidance (found out I am not good at teaching and playing simultaneously). Been really working off the tee and I think that screwed men up a little with the irons because I just wasn’t hitting them well but I know what I was doing.

off the tee was fantastic today with a +6.2 on arccos (28 on approach so yea). But had a few bombs and shot a total 42. chalk up another birdie for BEHC.

Sounds like a fantastic time with your son and dad, that's awesome! Also, love the water bottle your son is sporting.

82 39/43

2 birdies/ 9 pars

9 FIRs / 10 GIRs

35 putts (2 3 putts that were on complete opposite side of the green)

I played at the RTJ Oxmoor Valley Ridge course today. Everything was great the first 8 holes. I was -1 through 8 and had hit 7/8 GIRs with back to back birdies. I was thinking I could record a personal best today...

Then came hole 9. It started with a tee shot that leaked a little right and caught the cart path sending it like a rocket into the trees. It took me 2 shots to get out, 2 chunks, 1 sandy, and 2 putts later to record a quad on a relative easy hole. After that I played bogey golf and could not get back in the groove. I let the mental part of the game get to me after that one bad hole.

Overall though, that is now 8 out of my last 9 rounds that have been 83 or lower. I’ve gotten my handicap down to 7.9 through this stretch. Hoping to keep it up!
