I'm going to preface this with.... I got up at 6:am. I made a pot of coffee. I made a 4 egg omlett with bacon, mushrooms, chalets, American and Gouda cheese. I watched the news for a bit and then opened my Bible and read for a bit. I let the dogs out and fed them.

I picked my brother up at 9:30. We had a 10:am tee time. I had the round of my life on the front 9. I went par, eagle, par, birdie, par, par, birdie, par, par, bogie.... 3 under par 31 on the front.

The back went a bit different...lol. It was blowing hard and misting the whole time. I went +7 for a 42. I ended up shooting 73... best round of my life... so far...lol. The game seems to be coming around. We'll see if it continues. It was a great day!

 

 

Pot of coffee and omelet would be good enough for me. Golf with your brother and a 73 is icing on the cake!

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!

My golf game continued the downward spiral it's been on for the last few weeks with a +20 56 over the course of nine holes. I did hit 3 fairways and no greens and my putter was my saving grace, with only 18 putts. 

I almost walked off the course after being +10 after just three holes, but decided to gut it out and finish the round and started relaxing a bit more after giving up on trying to have a great round. I actually played better without the mindset of pressing to score well, finishing my last six holes at +10. 

My game from 20-100 showed signs of improvement, I wasn't always on the green but was getting it a lot closer and wasn't shanking so many. I've just got to work on my iron game and I believe I can turn the corner to score well.

Downward spirals happen.  Tough not to get down and want to walk off the course.  Step back and enjoy the fact that you can be outside and just wait for the game to turn around.

Bad rounds happen to everyone at every level. Keep plugging, playing and practicing and you’ll be back and getting better. Plus you have your #1 Caddie riding w you[emoji106]

**** yeah! Personal best 78 today.

It wasn't raining birdies like yesterday but still f****** stoked about the results.

A little turbulence on the front 9, but the back was smooth sailing. 

I played a little game with my friend where we would call out each shot before executing it, just to prove it wasn't a lucky shot and that seemed to work pretty well, makes you think about how you going to play the hole, which side you are aiming and all that. 

Now, just have to make it happen in a competitive round and I'll see my hcp drop!

Great round!!  Congratulations!!   I remember this guy a month or so ago that was talking about giving up the game because he sucked.  Maybe you should have a talk with him.  Convince him that good rounds come after bad ones and not to give up.

Downward spiral here.  After the no doubles 78 on Saturday, I amazed myself with 3 doubles and a quad shooting an 89.  

Other than those 4 bad holes, it was an enjoyable round with another couple that we had not met before.  He and I were about the same distance off the tee and so were the lady and my wife.  Both good players and I hope we can join up again, and I bring a better game.

That's the thought I need to keep in the forefront of my mind. It's truly a blessing to be able to get out and enjoy nature and time on the course. I appreciate the encouragement!

I need to get her back out there, she's been staying at home the last couple of weeks. She keeps me grounded and is just fun to have around.

Why do I expect good scores during a swing change? (It's a rhetorical question) Shot a 94 in the wind and drizzle yesterday. I'm happy to say that my case of the 90° rights are pretty much gone, I just have to get adjusted to the new swing and I should see my scores start dropping.

Ball striking was superb today! Putting was extremely cold. That sums it up lol. I holed out from 108 for eagle on hole 1. Had a few 300 yard drives, and found all but 2 fairways. Hit half the greens in reg. But I burnt 6 edges and had two terrible 3 putts.

Was an interesting round today. Driver swing is missing in action. Started hitting pulls and hooks. Usually a setup or grip issue for me, so its fixable.

Iron swing showed up. Made a small feel change and it was like a miracle. Started hitting competent iron shots. It was great.

Putting was iffy, got to figure out the short putts.

Bunker play was atrocious. Multiple holes where it took multiple shots to get out of the bunker. And when I say getting out of the bunker, twice it was ball first thin shots over the green. Whoops.

I made that same omlette but I also like adding mushrooms to as well.  Awesome round!!

You need to watch Monte's bunker video.  Worked wonders for me.

After being frustrated at first by being asked to start on the back 9 (I don't care for that half of the course), I ended with my best 9 hole score to date.  I'm not a very good golfer yet, but a 54 is way better than a 66.  I also hit my 3 hybrid better than any other long club in my bag.  I thought I would give that nod to my driver after a beauty of 260 yard draw, but when I got to the next hole, I realized it wasn't my ball that I found in the fairway.

Bear with the erratic path on that hole, the tee shot with the 3 hybrid made me giddy.
