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.

Just saw this after I posted about my debacle today.

What stood out was how one of us "took his beating like a man" (you), while the other wallowed in self pity (me).

Now I feel even worse, not only do I stink at golf, I'm a whiner. LOL.

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

I got a hole in one on the first hole today. Makes for a really enjoyable round. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

Whew! Played Wallinwood Springs near Grand Rapids, MI and let me tell you, it's a tale of two nines. Opening 9 is relatively open, challenging but fair. The back, however, is probably the toughest 9 hole stretch I've played. Not to mention, we were dealing with steady 12-15mph winds, with gusts probably in the upper 20s. The entire back nine runs next to a river, swamp, and pond/lake, with water in play on every single hole. For example:

602yrd par 5 11th. Fairway is only about 20 yards wide for the first 320 yards or so, with a swamp left and river right.

Or the 16th, a 441yd par 4 with water both sides, and a bottleneck that keeps you from going anywhere further than about 250 off the tee, but leaves you with 150-160 to the green which is protected left and short by water and a large tree.

image.png.f44ec154851fb76cd5fe19dcaeb04c49.png

Or the 18th hole, a 550yd par 5 with trees blocking half of the only 30 yard wide fairway. If you don't/can't play a fade this hole, good luck. You basically have to hit a dead straight shot and only have about 5 yards of wiggle room.

image.png.0dba61a7299663884fe47b2137614882.png

All that said, here's how I did:

41:49; 90 (+18, net 0)

33 putts, 4/14 FIR, 5/18 GIR

I was hitting some bombs off the tee, and was as accurate probably as I've ever been. On top of that, I was putting pretty darn well. I missed two make-able birdie putts, but they were certainly no gimmies. Did have a few 3-putts, but they were suuuper far away, more because of poor approach shots. All in all, I was pretty much money on the front. Got in a few sticky situations, but was able to get out of them relatively unscathed.

But started off the back 9 in pretty rough shape. I doubled 4 holes in a row, 3 of the 4 were because of trouble off the tee. One was just a mental lapse around the green where I used 2 more strokes than I needed to because of the mental slip. Pulled things a little more back in order, but struggled on the 18th. I'd like to talk to the course about taking out the trees on the 18th tee shot, they are pretty insane haha.

After all the challenging and intimidating shots on the back 9, I was pretty beat. I knew I didn't do nearly as well on the back, but after checking the score I was shocked to see I actually netted par! Not to mention, it's actually the second lowest handicap differential of the year for me! Now I feel validated with the tough course layout haha. And much happier with my performance now that I know that too!

Well, I'm glad I saw this before posting my round today.  I could have been a whiner, but "taking a beating like a man ( @tony@CIC) sounds better to me.

I chipped in for birdie on hole #1 then posted an 88 with 3 doubles and a triple.  Tomorrow will be better.

I got out for nine holes in my last round of the MGS Hard Rock Challenge. Shot 48 hitting 3 fairways and 2 greens and had 21 putts. It was a nice day to be out, even with the recent rain and the humidity that goes along with it. I played better from tee to green than I have in a while, only hitting a couple of nasty tops. 

I can't say enough good things about the Cobra fairways I've been playing recently, they just perform...if I don't top them. That's user error and something I need to clean up, but I love, love, love them. The fairways hit stat is misleading because I wasn't missing them by much and when I did, I hit driver. 

The putter was ice cold, with the exception of a 60 foot lag I hit on the fourth hole to easy knock in range. Three 3 putts and 6 twos are not the best days on the green. I hit the putter 4 times on the 8th, with one being from off the green. 

It was a great day to test the new Vokey wedges, I'm liking them so far. On the 8th, my first chip landed short so I dropped a Srixon Z Star XV, hit a low spinny shot that bounced once and stopped cold. Ain't nothing like a fresh set of grooves. 20200828_185028-01.jpeg.900eabcc854a0412823282420ca5743e.jpeg20200828_185009-01.jpeg.9b984d6f4823b6ab4425d1321208e66d.jpeg

It's nice to hear you are happy with those new wedges! They look so nice... enjoy them!!!

I just put two CBX's in my bag again, and although I'm okay with the 52, I'm not a fan of the 58. I like a more thinnish (if that's a word) look with that club. The CBX just doesn't look right to my eye when I try to open up the face around the green, and especially in the bunker. That has to be a "me" thing, because just about everyone else who has them says they're like cheating from the sand. For "me", not so much... 🙄

I've had a couple of SM7's (52* F and 58*M) sitting in a cart for over a week now. I just tried to pull the trigger on them a few minutes ago, but I can't get the "gift card" option to work. Maybe it's for the best, because after the way I played today, I'm ready to overhaul my entire bag, LOL.

It's probably wise to wait until morning, and if I still want them, just go into the shop and let them place the order.

I thought about going with the CBX, as the cavity back traits of them are appealing. I think you'll like the SM7's and the grinds you are looking at are exactly the same as mine. I love the 52, it filed a gap in my bag I didn't know I needed until the woods and wedges challenge of CCC4. The M grind is great for opening the face and performs like I hoped. Good luck making a decision!

When it’s not your day, it just not your day. I had a bad start to a round and couldn’t get off the bogey train on the back (played the 9s in reverse). Shot a 43 that felt like I was stalled the entire time. Then I finally started taking advantage of my drives on the front, another day of 296 yard average with 60%+ fairways hit. I was headed into the 8th hole +1 on the front coming off a pair of birdies  Tugged an 8 iron a bit, hit a sprinkler head in the fringe and bounced over the OB fence left. Then on 9 I hit a drive that skipped through the rough and went down a hill into a patch of bushes, needed to take an unplayable but there was nowhere remotely close to drop the ball. So I hacked it the best I could, made it out into the rough. Ball buried itself so deep that I had no choice but to try and hack a wedge, ball came out like a missile and caught in a footprint at the lip of the green side bunker. Needless to say I took a double-double finish for a 43-41, 84. What a game haha

It was HOT! yesterday. I didn't play bad but I had a some blow up holes plus didn't putt my best which ruined my overall score. Like 3 balls in the water on one hole! Actually no one played exceptionally well in my ladies group because it was so hot. The index was 114 here in South Texas. We had to call EMS to send one lady I was playing with to the hospital. Once the heat starting getting to her it was surprising how fast she went from ok to big trouble - from one green to the next tee box. Another 114 index forecast for today. Drink plenty of water and stand in the shade my spy friends.
Below: Part of my fun ladies group yesterday doing our Flamingo pose. We had to cancel our big Flamingo Tournament (because of COVID-19) but we all wore pink anyway for a play day. After play we had a putting and chipping challenge. For chipping, we had to land it in that Flamingo pool.

That looks like a great time, and a very creative way to have a putting challenge. I hope the lady that had to go to the hospital is ok. Stay safe out there and like you said, stay hydrated.

... You be crazy AG 🤪. I played 101 out of 111 days in Phoenix 2 winters ago and one of my last days there I didn't play because the temp was 103 and the heat index was 111. I got out of my air conditioner car, put my ZIP Navigator together in the shade thinking it felt awfully hot, stepped out into the sun for a few steps, stood there a second and then went right back to the car. Be super extra safe out there and don't be afraid to walk away in the middle of the round.

Shot a 41/44:85 yesterday with no birds. Course was 90*. Then, it rained all night so played Cart Path only today, shooting 45/45:90. Rain started again on back nine. By the time we got to 18, the green was unputtable. Very sloppy play today, but I love a challenge. Wanted to see how SS V3 did in the rain....only missed a couple shots, like when it took me 2 to get out of @ bunker....lol

Shot a 100 today. Was not a very good ballstriking or putting round. Every now and then had some good shots.

On a positive, im hitting my drives farther. Got a few out there 260 plus, longest being 274. Now i should stop focusing on power, need to work on cleaner ballstriking and putting.

Nicest day in a long time for golf. Low 70's, low humidity and a slight breeze. No extraordinary holes today - but did figure out my driver issues. Ended up with an 88.

Thanks for caring. We did it again today. We are part of an active fun group of golf friends that play some kind of game almost every Sat and Sun. Today there were 26 of us braving the heat, but no walkers in this oven. I wouldn't want to walk in this heat, it's too far back to the pro shop if you need to quit. Everyone stayed hydrated and drove our carts from one shady spot to the next. One man even brought an ice chest full of new Gatorade flavors (like watermelon) and Gatorade golf towels to share with all of us. Used my umbrella on the greens to stay cool through #8 when a little breeze kicked up. Doesn't take much wind to tumble my umbrella down the fairway. I'd rather have the breeze. I almost didn't care about the heat because I played good for me with 41/48. Got kind of tired on the last 4 holes.

That looks like a great time, and a very creative way to have a putting challenge. I hope the lady that had to go to the hospital is ok. Stay safe out there and like you said, stay hydrated. 

Yes, she is ok. They got her cooled and hydrated; then ran a bunch of tests to make sure everything checked out. Sent her home last night with instructions to not go outside for a few days. We missed her not being able to play with us today. She's always there.

It was HOT! yesterday. I didn't play bad but I had a some blow up holes plus didn't putt my best which ruined my overall score. Like 3 balls in the water on one hole! Actually no one played exceptionally well in my ladies group because it was so hot. The index was 114 here in South Texas. We had to call EMS to send one lady I was playing with to the hospital. Once the heat starting getting to her it was surprising how fast she went from ok to big trouble - from one green to the next tee box. Another 114 index forecast for today. Drink plenty of water and stand in the shade my spy friends.

Below: Part of my fun ladies group yesterday doing our Flamingo pose. We had to cancel our big Flamingo Tournament (because of COVID-19) but we all wore pink anyway for a play day. After play we had a putting and chipping challenge. For chipping, we had to land it in that Flamingo pool.

Love my LGA. Hot afternoon to be standing in the sun for a putting challenge! I'm the only one with an umbrella. 15° cooler under that canopy.

Sorry to hear about your friend, and glad she is better now.  

My wife got heat stroke on a 4th of July party many years ago and still has problems when the temps get above 100.  One time during a golf tournament at the Marriott Starr Pass in Tucson in July, she was riding with a friend of ours when we came off a green and the route to the next tee crossed a street.  The clubhouse was 1/2 block down the street, and she said that he could take her to the clubhouse now, or call an ambulance on the next tee.  They went to the clubhouse.  Another trip to Phoenix we played TPC Scottsdale in July.  She made it to the clubhouse, but was sick for a couple of hours after.  She has to be very careful.

Question:  Does that flamingo stay on your golf cart permanently?  It wouldn't make it through a tunnel on our course.
