Since it rained 5” at Pebble Creek Wednesday and Thursday, I decided to play an older bag today, one with wider soles on the irons. My bag was made up of 10 year old Powerbilt Air Force One clubs. All went well on the front nine, started off with two doubles, then 5 straight pars, a bogey and a double....42. The back was a bit different. The fun started on #14 when I popped up my drive, then pulled out my 4 iron....well, the iron head flew further than the ball. That’s right, the shaft snapped when I struck the ball. I scored a double on that hole. Play continued until I was ready for my approach shot on 18....118 yds so I had a 9 iron in my hand and bent over to get the mud off my ball, and it happened again, the shaft snapped at the hosel! So I broke two shafts on the back nine. The shafts were Apollo 65 UL graphite.

BTW, I shot 42/47:89.

Guess I should replace the shafts on all of them.

WOW, never heard of 2 shafts blowing up same place same round!
I feel your pain on the “Monsoon Season”. I think you guys got more rain than us. It’s raining right now.
I’m thinking about bringing a fly rod w me Monday. Bass?

Played like absolute poop today. Putter went cold and it just trickled down to the rest of my game. 4 three putts enroute to a 77. I have been working on my putting stroke the last six weeks about an hour a day with a short putter. May be time to see how it goes for a round.

No - shot 75 without a birdie - 3 bogeys on the front for 39. All pars on the back. Hit it really well on the back, had lots of great looks, also didn’t leave a single approach shot short of hole high.
 

 

See what did I tell you!!  🤣

Had a nice round today:  39/39 for a stress free 78 and no doubles!!  Also no birdies.  🙄

I wasn't catching my driver as well as I wanted, but drives were adequate.  I hit some great 3W shots from the fairway, and my iron approaches were better than usual (ball-striking practice at home).  Short game was fine until hole #15.  I started pressing to make a birdie and 3-putted #15 and 16.  Threw away a few shots on the back nine.  Overall, pleased though.  

Tomorrow I will see if I can continue good play like DJ did today or fold like Spieth on weekends.  Stay tuned.

Played 18 at a new  to me course - nice, but not sure we'll go back... the routing was a little weird, play was slooow (5 hrs) and the finishing hole was not good .. a big departure visually and architecturally from every other hole and it looked and felt as if it had just been squeejed (technical term) into an otherwise unusable corner of the property that builders decided they couldn't place any houses on...

The deck outside the clubhouse sure was nice afterwards, though - good cold beer and wine and tasty food 🙂

Anyway, on the plus side I took along my old XR hybrid and am now wondering why I ever took it out of the bag!?!

And... my putting was on point! Was 2-putting everything .. including two 50 footers (one bounced off the flagstick!) .. dropped a few 1-putts (whoo hoo!) ... and ... ZERO 3-putts all afternoon! That's a first, and yeah I sure hope it continues!

Is this a testimonial for the EXPUTT??  😀

Very nice!!  Not 3-putting on a course you've never played before is a great accomplishment.

In a word....woof.....

had a great day with some fellow MGS members @B.Boston @GolfSpy Stroker and @GolfSpy Barbajo (sorry for stinking it up!) 

focusijg on the positives had some really awesome sand shots today and an occasional good poke but other than that yikes. It was a round where I questioned if I have ever played the game. Beautiful course and good company so all and all can’t be bad. 2 highlights:

That's awesome the four of you got to meet up and play together. I bet both @GolfSpy Barbajo and @GolfSpy Stroker are fun playing partners. Looks like the 3 wood is still launching bombs! That's up there with my best drives. That's a beautiful course and I love the MGS logo ball.

There were very few good shots I could use but the 3W has some bombs but I also had really bad hooks today with it. Topped balls, chunked shots and something j wouldn’t call chipping, not sure what I would call it. 
yes great company John and Jason were great to play with and it’s clear why MGS is great with mods and admins like them.

Could not get anything going yesterday. Seemed as if I was scrambling for par most of the time. Had like 5-6 eight footers for par but only could make  one of them. Putter was dead on line today but speed was just a little off. 41/41 for a 82. Not all that bad and was a great time with my buddies.

I walked 18 with my son yesterday at Windmill Hill in RI, it's a 9 hole executive course with the longest hole at 218. It was more of a teaching round, since there was no one behind us I let him play multiple balls just to practice and work on things. He gets very handsy on a lot of shots so we worked on that, especially with chipping and pitching. If you see the pic I posted in the Shot of the Day thread, I think my tips helped him a little bit 😄 He bombs it at the range but when we get on the course and he has to try and hit a target, he gets very tentative and slows down his downswing a lot so we worked on that too. Bottom line - when we walked off the course he said "that was a lot of fun, thanks Dad!" and that's what it's all about.

Might have to bring my son here. Rarely get to RI courses even though I’m 5 minutes from the line.

If you want to not worry about a lot of people on the course so you guys can relax and have fun, this is the place. $15 to walk 9 or $25 to walk 18.

That said, the par 3 course at Swansea CC just a few mins away from this course is $14 to walk 9 and is far better maintained. It's also busier, so there's that to consider.

Played at the ever frustrating Big Sugar here and started off with a birdie on the first hole (YAY), then proceeded to shoot +15 on the other 8 holes of the front nine lol. I reeled it back in with a +6 on the back nine.

My putting failed me all day after the first hole and my club selection was not the best decision making I've had in a while. I can't remember the last time I've four putted but I had a couple on the scorecard.

What. The. Eff.

Such a fickle mistress.

76 (38/38), with three birdies, and literally lipped-out on two more!. Hoseled my 58* wedge from 88 out on number 6, so that threw me off for a few holes. Only 36% of fairways.... Birdied 18 to finish.

Ha ha, yes in a roundabout way .. you caught me! 🤣 But, yes, it has helped with my lag putting - something I never really had a good way to practice before.

And thanks! (..and thanks, too, for not asking about the rest of the round or how I scored... ☺️☺️)
