Played at Plantation Palms today as my regular Tuesday game got underway.  I shot lousy today but scored okay with a 45/43:88 This course is longer than my home club(Pebble Creek) but I like the challenge.

Played one of the tougher 9’s this morning. Brought a G710 7i to match up against 919 Hot Metal 7i, so far 919 has a slight edge. Both are really nice clubs.
BTW, played OK but no scoring due to testing the irons. Humid as usual

Played Sunday, it was so meh that I didn’t even post. 40-43 83, first round in the 80’s since March.

The only bright spot was it seemed like a classic SuperSpeed I’m about to jump round, several shots flared right. That’s extremely unusual for me.

Had a very good night in league tonight. 39 (+4) with 2 penalties due to wayward drives for a net 31. I had a case of the pulls with driver tonight, so I tried to play the pull at exactly the wrong time (woods right) but the irons were about the best I've hit them in a long time, maybe ever. You know when you are flushing irons and you almost can't hear or feel the contact? That happened a lot tonight and it's totally addictive. Let's hope the golf gods don't think some sort of redemption is due next time.

I was also playing a TP5x I found last week. I've never played one before and I think I love them. Too bad I can't justify the price. I had a nasty chip tonight after being long on my approach. Downhill lie, above the green with the green sloping back-to-front. Never a fun chip. Clipped it perfectly to a couple feet on the green and to ball checked up incredibly, then trickled forever leaving about 10 feet up the hill. Missed the putt, but it could have been ugly had the ball not spun like it did.

Nice round! Have you tried the Snell MTB x. It compares well to the Pro VIx or TP 5x in every way but price. :)

Thanks! I have tried a couple MTB x's that @MattF let me have. I'll have to buy some when my current supply of Z-Stars and OnCore Elixers starts getting low.

Things are starting to come around... I've shot 82, 82, 83 in the last 2 weeks. Still have a couple of competitive rounds til the end of the season, so hopefully I can shoot it when it counts.

The new SZ driver is definitely longer, I'm carrying some bunkers I couldn't before, but the % of fairways hit is still too low for my liking.

And only had one 3-putt, which is nice.

Played last night in the rain (again)... 1 birdie, 1 double, a couple of bogeys... shot 42.  Putter was red hot and helped turn a potential 45-46 into that 42.

Great day, but like I referred in CCC4 with @GB13 my putting is sh1t right now. 40/40’with multiple 3 putts. Not due to bad chipping either.

9 fairways 11 greens. 11 pars/6 bogeys/1 double

bedt purchase this year is the push cart. The course today is Blackstone national and is probably one of the toughest to walk but I felt great during and after, feel like I actually am getting something out of playing.

I followed arccos recommendations today and the waiting menu for club selection had me dying!

and the blemish of the day. Should have been an easy par after I nutted the 3W position A

Mr Double Bogey has done it again.  39 on the front with a double, 39 on the back with another double for a smooth 6 over 78.  Both doubles were just lack of concentration -- i.e. no penalty, just dumb azz play.

And, despite have numerous birdie opportunities today, I squandered them.  To my credit, we're in a really hot spell (100*+) and the super is pouring the water to the greens and fairways in an attempt to stay ahead of the heat.  Greens are soft and running slow right now.

I've been trending in the right direction for a while now, but always seem to have a couple of errant shots which limit me from shooting even or under par. Today I finally put it all together. I shot my best 9 hole round in a while 35 (-1). Made 3 birdie putts but was 2 under after 8 holes and then hit one in the water. Still was able to scramble for a 5. Felt good to finally put a round together. Felt like I was throwing darts at the hole with my Sub70 699 irons!

Nice round!!  Tough to concentrate for 18 holes in 100º+ heat.  

We are up to nearly 110º every day this week, and our course is dried out in spots.  We have a lot of mounds on the course, and they can water all night long, but the low areas are soaked and the tops are burnt to a crisp.  

I'll get a few pics IF we play this weekend.  My wife played with the ladies this morning, but only lasted 7 holes.  She quit after 7 holes because she felt like her BP was a little high.  It was up a little when she got home, but came down with rest.

79 42/37

9 pars, 2 birdies

30 putts (only 1 3 putt)

5 penalties (I’ll get to that)

I played my home course today, Robert Trent Jones Valley course with one of my regular golf buddies. I got to the course about a hour early and went to go hit some balls on the range. Got around to my driver and hit one, I thought man that sounded weird. I pick up the club and notice a big crack on the bottom of the face. No clue how it happened, but thankfully I bought the club through the head pro here at this RTJ. I was able to drop it off and let me handle getting a new head from Ping for me. Disclaimer: I have only had this driver for about a month now.

Back to my round, I don’t have a driver, so I’m having to borrow my buddies driver. His driver is the M5 compared to my G410 plus. Let’s just say I lost a ball off the tee on the first 3/4 holes that I needed a driver for. It took me until the back 9 to finally figure it out. Thankfully my irons were on fire today and saved me from my long journey on the tee box. I was pretty stoked about breaking 80 with 5 penalties. Could have been one of my PR days as my best par 72 record is 77.

Played 18 yesterday.  Got a work call on hole 1 and that mentally messed me up for the round, but somehow I managed to eek out an 84.  Best round of the year.  Had a chance to break 80 but ended up taking double bogey on the last two holes🤦‍♂️ and I also missed a few makeable putts.  I actually putted better than I have ever putted. Game is definitely trending the right way.
