Shot my handicap with a 78.

Took a 7 after a poor shot from a flier lie put me in an impossible situation. Hit a wedge over the elevated green so it bounced away, and ended up on some hard pan next to a bush. I had to punch a shot under branches to a short sided flag up 10 feet of slope, then stop it because the green runs entirely back to front. What a mess. 
I also lipped out 2 eagle putts from 8 and 12 feet on two of the par fives. Flew 5 yards over the flag on a par 3, thought I holed it, but it one-skipped off the fringe into the rough. I hit 12/14 fairways, some due to the 20 degree EXS Pro that I’m testing for MGS, hit 9 greens, and took 31 putts. 
 

Change the one really bad shot, and hole one more putt and I’d be looking very near a PB at that course.

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 🤔

Same stuff just a different application.

Had a fun time playing in the rain today. Went out after there was a break in the thunderstorms from Hurricane Hanna. We only got the edge of the storm but there was a lot of water on the course so of course it cart path only.  It was only 90 degrees but with the high humidity the heat index was 102. When it started raining it was cold and when those big cold drops it us it felt like a little bit of heaven. I love to play during summer rains. I like watching the drops fall around me and my golf ball no matter how I play.

52 (9 holes)

5/7 fairways

0 greens

16 putts (2 one putts, 7 two putts, 0 three putts+)

Not the best round today, I am finding it's hard to break 50 lately over the course of nine holes and today was no different. My driving was the best it's been in a while and my putter was red hot! My approach game and wedges were cold enough to extinguish the fires of the other aspect of my game. 

I'm not saying every shot with the wedge was bad, just any shot from 20-100 yards was horrible. My greenside game was great, I left myself with putts of 11 feet or less 5 times. I just couldn't hit a somewhat full shot to save my life, I was on the hosel way too much. Very frustrating day with the wedges and it's definitely something I need to work on going forward if I want to lower my scores. 

After my round yesterday, I found a couple of junk balls in my bag and for giggles took them out on the range and tried something different with the fairway woods. Instead of my normal slow, methodical backswing I upped the tempo and hit two very good shots. I tried the same swing thought today and it was the first time in I don't remember when that I didn't pull hook a driver. The new F9 3&5 woods continue to impress with both their distance and forgiveness. I might end up lofting the 3 down just a bit, it's hitting closer to the 5 wood distance than I like. It's currently at 14.5 and I might take it down to 13-13.5 to get closer to where my old one was. I shouldn't complain, it's out distancing my previous one by 10 yards.

I'm frustrated with my last few rounds, but today I saw glimmers of hope that it can get better. My handicap has taken a hit going from 18.1 to 19.7 lately and I want to improve that. I guess that means it's time to hit the range. 

Unsolicited advice, so please disregard if you want! I just helped a buddy who was missing wedges in a similar manner. If you have an alignment stick push it into the ground about 12-18 inches in front and outside of the ball, at a similar angle to the shaft. You should have it just outside the line enough that you can pass your clubhead completely under it if you were to continue straight down the line after the ball. When you swing try to feel your club go under the alignment stick. If you’re too much in to out or extending early you’ll hit the stick.

I appreciate it, I'll give that a try!

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.

Yes!!  We have one but it's more the consistency of honey... a little sticky.  It's almost gone, and my wife found another brand that was recommended by her hairdresser so will give that a try.

How did I play? There are several ways to answer that... let me set the stage.. 1st hole 291 yd dogleg left.. I drive 271 just in front of the green.. par. 2nd 148 yd par 3 15 feet short of pin, par. That was the highlight of my round.. 2 holes in 2 pars.. I ended the day at 110, losing 10 balls.. with the only club I could hit straight was the putter.. the few glimmers of hope made me decide not to give up the game.. but seriously considered it part way through...
 

10 lost balls???  😱   Were you playing Desert Canyon?  I don't lose many balls, but I lost a few there.

I played yesterday morning with my brother. I shot even par on the front 34 and 42 on the back for a 76. It was 90* and we might have had a few too many beers on the back...lol. I hope my game continues like this, but we all know too well how fast it can go away!

I have no words to describe what happened yesterday. Shocking, demoralising, makes you want to quit comes to mind. I'm still hitting that awful 90° right off the irons shot. The only glimmer of hope was on the long par 3 #12. Playing 186 so of course I smoke a 4 iron 206 off the back. I got the name of a coach, so I'm going to give him a call during the week and try to set something up.

We call it golf only because the more appropriate four letter words were already spoken for 😄.  Hang in there, the slump will likely vanish as quickly as it appeared.

I had a month like that quite a few summers ago where that happened to me during EVERY round.  I came very close to quiting golf altogether and taking up professional needle point🤷‍♂️😄🤣. Luckily I worked through it.  I still lose a few balls during a round but no where near that month!

It was a fun day today. Since we sold our last boat we're getting to enjoy that new brand called OPB (other people's boats) ran up to the islands for the afternoon.

After dinner my wife and I ran out to play 9. Great evening since I ended up with a 41. Interestingly , that was with the driver being off but fortunately I figured it out before the round was over.

So your a member of OPB too huh?  I've been a member the last 8 years or so 😄🤣.  Every time I looked at getting a boat, I just think about all my buddy's that own one and how they keep on saying what a PITA it is to have one, plus the cost of maintenance and upkeep so they always say to stay a member of OPB.  My old neighbor ended up buying a house on the water just so that he didn't have to pay anymore slip fees for his two boats.  He even said if I do get one, I can anchor it on his dock.  Nice stats on the round!
