Played like today then again I maybe didn’t play that bad considering I took off the tip of my left index finger using a drill press yesterday. My golf got rained out yesterday and the wife wanted me to work on the honey do list and I apparently decided to make my hand. Lots of blood but thankfully just need to keep it covered and clean, glad I avoided stitches. Another good thing is the honey do list is now put away again for a few days .

You didn't do a good enough job! I'm missing 1/2 the to joint of my little finger due to a table saw.

I haven't swung a club since last Sunday.  I was supposed to play at another course in town on Tuesday and Thursday but on Monday I woke up with a knot in a muscle in my lower back.  By Monday night I could hardly move so canceled golf for the week... until today.  Back is better; not sore but muscles are very tight.  I had a massage yesterday that helped and I did a lot of stretching before the round today.  Warmed up on the range, and it wasn't pretty.  On the 1st tee I told my wife and the other couple that I thought I would break 100; not the good way.  I haven't shot 100+ on this course in... ever!

50/41 for 91 with a triple and three doubles.  I couldn't stay down through the ball.  I managed a few good pars on the back nine, and my drives on #16 and #18 were fairly decent even for a health Kenny B.  My back didn't hurt, but it was far from normal feeling.  

Oh BTW, my wife finally beat me, but she probably would have anyway with her 83.  Best round she's shot since I've known her!!

I hope that your back loosens up and it's good to hear you were able to play today. Congrats to your wife for such a great score, that's awesome!

79 yesterday.  A very bad ball-striking day; 33% GIR, 46% FIR.

744054649_WillowLakes25Jul.png.430ecc04e8e2b9b2b9fba568d3b24da2.png

On the positive side, I scrambled pretty well, and I've now gone 4 consecutive rounds without a 3-putt so i'm pretty happy with that.

I know it sounds like a cliche, but I feel very very close to shooting some really good scores, I just need my ball-striking to shore up and keep the putter going.  I hit several dead pulls off the tee, and some toey weak flares with irons that I think are just a result of me not swinging in a good sequence, but I'm going to get there, and soon...

You need a good CBD cream. I have back muscles spasms often (like every couple of weeks). The last time I rubbed CBD cream on 3 times in an hour and 1/2. Then played golf with no pain and no tightness.

Two weekend rounds for #CobraConnect. I've posted over in that thread as well, but focused more on the clubs than my game.

Saturday

- 39/44 = 83 (+11)
- 4/15 FIR
- 10/18 GIR (1 birdie)
- 35 Putts (3 3-putts, 11 2-putts, 4 1-putts)

Sunday

- 42/40 = 82 (+10)
- 7/15 FIR
- 7/18 GIR (2 birdies)
- 32 Putts (2 3-putts, 10 2-putts, 6 1-putts)

Chipped and putted considerably better on Sunday than Saturday, but struggled with my irons both days. Sunday was particularly frustrating because I was alternating between hitting pulled toe shots (bad path) and overcooked straight draws (better path but really closed face) as I am still not comfortable with the feelings I got from Tuesday's lesson. Hoping to get to the range tomorrow to work some more on it.

Playing a small fade with the driver on good shots now, just have to trust the shot shape and go hard after it each time. Every now and then I'll get the face stuck open and bomb one way right, which isn't making trusting anything easy at the moment.

I have a cbd stick that works fantastic. I have not tried the creams but the stick is very clean although I could probably use the cream on my knuckles 🤔

Put in extra focus this morning. Getting prepared for my Sub 70 699 pro testing. Maybe I should focus this hard all the time!

35 / 34 for a two under round of 69

3 bogeys, 5 birdies

The 699 pro irons will have their work cut out for them for sure.

Had a weird round today. Shot a 106, which isn't great. My driver swing which was hot as of late did not show up at the course today until the 18th hole. Hit a bomb on 18 dead straight, where was that swing all day?

On the flip side, my iron swing, which has been missing in action all season showed up. Was hitting my approach shots onto the green, but unfortunately, my GIR was not high, because those approach shots were generally my 3rd or 4th shots after hitting a poor tee shot and having to punch out into the fairway.

I switched putting grips today to the Claw grip. First time, no practice. So my putting wasn't so hot, but it showed some good potential where i drained some nice putts. 

My short game was a little rough today. Typically, I had been used to hitting poor, chunky approach shots, so I would be left with a lot of 40 yard pitch shots, which I tend to be ok on. Today, since my iron game showed up, holes that I didn't hit onto the green with my irons were often right off of the green. Not close enough to putt though. Lot of bladed short chips or chunky short chips.

Another observation is that my scores have been worse when the weather has been hotter. I walk and my course is hilly as sh*t. Even though my cardio fitness is pretty good, I get pooped out walking. Not many people walk the course.

Played my opening nine today in 6 over then my closing 9 in 7 under to shoot one under for the day. Talk about a round of two 9’s, just bizarre day today. I went from doing nothing right to not being able to miss a shot. My Arccos right now must think it switched players at the turn.
