Another league night where I was "this close" to putting together a great round. I guess with a league HC of 8, a +5 is pretty great for me. I opened with the obligatory double, but ended up with 2 birdies (including a chip-in on a par 3 and left an eagle putt short 🤬). I topped tee balls on two consecutive holes but managed to recover somewhat decently to bogey both of those. SuperSpeed has definitely helped, as I hit a few irons quite a bit further than normal, so I will have to learn to adjust.

Worst ball striking day in memory!! Every club was unhittable, I’m exaggerating putter was pretty good.
Seriously, I knew it was real bad when all 3 guys got real quiet. The normal chatter was non existent.

Scored alright despite missing 3 greens from about 60 yards out, though I hit 2 greens from more than 200 out (quite a feat considering I am a bit of a shorter hitter). Getting a little better maybe I can break 80 again someday, but today was not that day.

Played 9 this morning on a super easy but in very poor shape course. First time on a course in at least a month. 

Hit 6/9 greens but only 2 fairways. Found not real trouble except on 9 where I had to punch out and took a bogey  Went in to 9 minus 1 so big bummer on the bog. 17 putts.

Played 9 this afternoon; a little slow .. 2:45 round time .. but a fun course haven't been on in a few years and we were paired with a nice older couple. So typical golf for me, I guess - some good shots, some silly errors...

Putting was not as sharp as prior round - had 2 🤕 3-putts where I got fooled by a change up in speed .. to slower .. and left the first one way short on a very sloped sidehill break both times....

Finished with 2 pars but 2 doubles (the 3-putts) and rest bogeys for a bogey average, with 19 putts.

Been having a rough time at work recently, too much to do, not enough time. So today I decided to not keep score or track stats and go pound some golf balls. I got into a rhythm near the end of the round where you could no longer hear the ball coming off the clubface. It was more dead square for longer than ever before. My buddy was with me and taking notes. I was averaging 326 off the tee and missed 2 fairways all day. Didn’t putt well or chip well, but my brain wasn’t in it. Just trying to feel the flow.

After the tournament took an entire week off after feeling burnt out on golf. Somehow it's made my game even better despite.. well ...find out below.

Monday showed up to league night against the nemesis team.  They've beaten us twice and it's been death-match when it comes to gimmies. 

My partner had a rough round but I pulled together my best 9 ever. Shot 35, although probably would have shot 38 or so with the amount of putts given. I hit a 15 foot birdie putt and then next hole went driver 5 iron chip for an eagle 3. Shot of the day was probably the last hole, 192 yards with water left. Hit a choked down 8 iron to 30 foot and gave myself a look at birdie, but settled for par. That shot was fun because I told my teammate watch me hit this 8 iron nearly 200 yards. Oh about that weird part: I did this all barefoot. I have a pair of footbeds I move from shoe to shoe, I put those in the car but forgot any shoes. Decided to go barefoot and had a great round.

Brings me to yesterday: Why not try it again. Played 9 holes barefoot  and shot a 38 after a bogey bogey start. Highlight was driving the green 290 ish yards and nearly holing the eagle putt. Tapped in for a par.

Don't think I'll always go barefoot, but can't say it's hurt my game.

Had another 35 today. I have started to hit 4 iron off the tee on some of these shorter par 4s and it has definitely made a difference. I’m finding more fairways and leading to more GIR. The course I play isn’t usually the longest 3100 yards but I’ll take the 35 anyways!

Another "meh" 79 but I see signs of coming out of my recent funk.


Had a horrendous start, 5 over through 3, but the day got better.  Frankly, I blame the start on the starter...we had an 8:06 tee time and got called to the tee at 7:45, while I was still on the range and hadn't hit the putting green yet.  Honestly, I should have made it to the putting green by then, but I hadn't, and sure enough, first hole was a 3-putt.

I've also been working with a Planemate and am seeing some improvements, but overall I think I just need better tempo...need to go watch some Freddy Couples videos..

It took me almost a day to get over my round last night at men's league 9 hole match play. Normally I'm in the low 40's and consider a bad round to be mid 40's.

Last night I had 2 balls in the water, 2 OB and 1 unplayable, closing out the last night of league play at 52. Still shaking my head as to what happened. I could blame the SS protocol in the morning, the excessive heat and humidity, etc. etc. But in the end no one to blame but myself. At least I had a par on the last hole - that'll keep me coming back.

79 - 40/39

2 birdies, 7 pars, 9 bogeys 

8 FIRs and 8 GIRs

33 putts (1 3 putt and 4 1 putts)

I played my home course at RTJ Oxmoor Valley Ridge course. It was raining on 17 of the 18 holes. It would go from a drizzle to steady rain and back to a drizzle all day. I purchased a FJ Rain glove from the pro shop and it worked like a charm. I’m intrigued to see if it also works with a lot of sweat.

I finally birdied a hole I’ve never had good fortune with. It’s a 3 shot par 5 hole, can’t use driver off the tee or you’d go swimming. Hit a 3 wood, 5 iron, 60 degree to 5 feet and sunk the putt. This is now 5 rounds in a row for breaking 80. Hoping to keep it going.

Haven't posted about a round in a while, but I had a fairly decent one yesterday that was so close to being really great. A couple of wayward tee shots and numerous putts that missed by mere inches were all that kept me from potentially setting a career best.



Despite starting off double, double, I played the front nine at 4-over (3 pars, followed by a bogie, 2 more pars, and a birdie on #9). 14 putts, 4 fairways, 3 greens (I scrambled my butt off) and 1 penalty (a lost ball on #2).

Though I still had plenty of highlights, the back nine was notably different at 11-over (2 triples, 2 doubles, a bogie, and 4 more pars). 17 putts, 3 fairways, 3 greens, and 2 more penalties (another lost ball, and a water ball). My putter was certainly less reliable on the back nine. I had a solid look at birdie on all the holes I parred and all of them missed by an inch or two (bad reads on my part) including a lip out on the last hole... I also had my only 3-putt of the round on #12 which contributed to one of those triple-bogies.

Highlights of the day came at holes 9 and 17. 

#9 is a dead straight Par 5 that also plays downwind most of the time. I split the fairway with a 324-yard bomb that left me 155(ish) yards from a front-right pin location. I tugged an 8-iron hole high to the front-middle portion with what looked to be a straight downhill putt. Gave it a soft tap and was tracking to the hole before making a right turn in the last 6-8 inches. Tap in bird.



#17 is a long Par 3 with a long kidney-shaped green that (from front-to-back) moves uphill and to the right. Yesterday, it played 229 yards to a back-right pin and I hammered my 20* hybrid to the front middle and watched as it rolled up and around to finish about 12 feet from the hole. Another seemingly straight downhill putt that broke right within the last foot. Tap in par.

I feel your pain...

Played yesterday, shot a 40 on the front, actually said to my cart partner on the 10th tee how surprised I was to be playing so well after taking time off. Bad move, the golf gods heard me. I shot 47 on the back 9, then compounded it with a 47-49 today. The weather was hot and steamy yesterday, and the wind was really blowing hard on a tough course today, but my goodness, I couldn't hit anything solid all day today.

I don't know what it is with me... how do I go from hitting the ball really well over the course of a few rounds, then just completely lose my game? I'm really frustrated right now. I was thinking about canceling with my Monday group, but the guy who runs it hurt his back the other day, and just called to ask me if I could take over for him this week. I can't even wallow in my misery for a few days. 😭 

UGH. This freaking game!!!!
