Smooth -1 70 yesterday with the short putter in the bag. Drove it decent and my irons were in fire. Missed hooping it on 11 with a wedge from 141 by an inch short. Going to keep working with the short stick and see if I can get the feel back that I lost last year after an unsolicited putting lesson from one of the pros at my club.

Today was a good day.  First hole in one ever.  50° Cobra King wedge from 120 yards.  Hit just past the hole and spun back in. Shot 73 to tie my lowest round ever. Won my match 8 and 6

Un-bloody-conscious! I still can't believe it but I shot a 79! 57% FIR 33% GIR 30 putts.

Played couple of days ago while on vacation with my father in law he took me to a small 9 hole course par 31 2200 yards, four par 4s and five par 3s .. It was a tight course with a bunch of OBs, woods and water and couple of dog legs. I believe one of the golf gods sprinkled some golf dust on me bc I was freaking on ! I shot a 36 (+5) drove the green on a par 4 and cut the corner on the other par 4 to have a second shot of around 40 yards .. had 1 birdie and 3 pars .. prob the best 9 hole stretch I ever played.

Played 2 rounds this weekend, One in a tournament and the second to get the bad taste of the tournament finished.

Lets start with the fact, that I felt and played better than the score shows, this round was painful because the flag/plus foam really penalized the round. 5 hit pins within 3-5ft that bounce of the flag and out. Because the foam insert was higher maybe an half inch below the cup the ball never had a change to go down the hole instead just rolled off the hole. Trying to just die the putt the hole with the flag in is a new habit to learn. Was a very frustrating day.

Because I was so disgusted with the finished I decided to play another round the next day , and was an improvement, but more important it has been a consistent performance the last 3 rounds. Which gives hope that I can continue to improve and maybe learn how to putt with the flag in. 🤣 
Except for the butchering of the par 5 again, not sure what is the deal with that BS. but I need to cut that out. IT was a decent round and now am looking forward to playing again next week. Hope everyone had a better weekend!!

Kinda so-so day yesterday at the same track I had my personal best a few weeks back. I decided to play it from the tips (6333 yds vs 5803 yds) kinda for kicks and giggles and it actually wasn't as much of a jump as I thought it might be. The wind did get a little tricky at certain points, and I had a few swings that really kept me from going a lot lower. Here's the damage:

88 (+18, net +3), 32 putts, 4/18 GIR, 5/18 FIR

Avoided 3-putting which was huge, and 32 putts is low for me, but I felt like I could have easily made another 2 or 3 putts on the front nine that lipped out. Off the tee I was mostly fantastic with a few duds, but honestly most of my mistakes were course management driven. Misreads on the wind and with potential flier lies probably cost me 4 or 5 strokes throughout the round. Did have one of my best long iron days, which is a long time coming. Still feeling good about where my game's at, just need to tidy a few things up and I think I'll be getting lower a lot more consistent!

Played Sunday with my brother and two guys from "work". My last 5 rounds were in the 70's............... I knew I was due for a fall...lol. I shot 43 both sides. Not terrible, I just couldn't get the putts to drop.

 It seems like the rain has been non stop since last Tuesday, but my second round after my hiatus is in the books. 🙄

Played The Dye Course at Barefoot Resort, one of my four home courses, with 9 other friends today. The course was very wet, and played long. I was one of three who played the white tees, and the extra strokes I received over those who moved up a tee came in handy as I took low net. 

Hit two balls OB on the front, and both were incredibly dumb swings from very wet waste bunkers. Ah well, my mental game is as rusty as my physical game, I guess. The back 9 was pretty solid though. I shot 46-41, and the rain held off until we were walking off the 18th green.

All in all a fun day. Good friends, and the game is coming around after a long layoff. (Won a few bucks also, lol.)
