Shot a 42/50, 92 at Pebble Creek Golf Club today. I had a Labor Day Points Game with 21 players. After a great front nine, I turned the corner and just could not get anything going on the back.

I shot 77 in a little Labor Day tournament. That was good for second place gross in the senior division. I also won a skin and a closest to the pin.

 

It was a fun day but 4 1/2 hours with a 10:30 tee time at this time of year really takes it out of you! Really tough course, the score in the championship flight was a 74 and the kid who won plays at UCF so you get the idea. Obviously he was back a set from we old farts but we had to deal with the same thick rough, pin placements and fast greens.

The club championship was this weekend.  I stunk.  I started a new job this month, and golf for the past few weeks has not been a priority.  I did go out to qualify on Tuesday evening with a buddy.  We were like one under through 7 holes when a storm hit.  We had to pickup where we left off on Thursday.  The problem was on Wednesday I started organizing my work and that was all I could think about on Thursday.  I shot 8 over on the next 10 holes, and honestly did not care.

 

So I entered the Championship anyway, in a lesser flight. and could not concentrate on golf.  I pulled a muscle in my back on the third hole, and while that made a difference on a couple of holes, it is not an excuse for not winning my match.  I should have won 9, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15 ,16, and 17 but won none of them and lost on 18.

 

No golf on Sunday, and spent the rest of the weekend working.  Today, I had completed my organization and went back out to the course.  My back is still sore and did not even hit driver or attempt to hit over 200 yards on the first 10 holes, and killed them.  I shot a 76 with 21 putts and 3 chip ins.  My mindset was right even though my body did not let me make all the shots I wanted, the short game and concentration was great.

Well SeeRed, I joined your ranks this last Saturday. I had a horrendous 21 point stableford round with a total of 43 putts. Lets just say I was getting very close to snapping my putter by the end of the round, but it also didnt help that I had trouble just stitching two shots together. Finally booked in with a Ping rep to get a full fit out for a putter through my teaching pro so hopefully that will help. I have struggled to strike or roll my scotty consistantly for so long I can't even remember the last time it felt good. I'm hoping with a new karstan anser 2 or something possibly even better suited to me will help me gain my confidence in my stroke back.

My condolences. Good luck with the fitting. I'm back to breaking down the swing mechanics and it looks like it might be a long road. Did struggle to an 89 on Sunday- not a 103, but it wasn't pretty.

So that's why we haven't heard much from you lately.  I was concerned and should really have sent you a PM.  Blessings on that new job. 

 

As to the golf I often find I have to go to the course with weighty matters in mind.  At first that was no fun but for the most part I've learned to use my time on the course as a diversion.  Here's hoping for the same for you.

Cheers, fitting is tonight so I'm very excited to see what we come up with. I should also add that it was my first game back after a two week hiatus and I have always had issues with my puttig. I wasn't expecting to play the best compared to how well I was playing in previous weeks but wasn't ready for anything like I went through. Will put in an update when I can about my fitting experience once its all said and done

Played a scramble yesterday for work to glad hand some politicians at the Tuxedo Club in upstate NY and can not say enough good things about the course.  Great conditions and a nice layout that has some great risk reward holes.  Took three other guys that I work with and the highest index in the group was a 5.1....needless to say we won it going away with a 59.  Saw a first in a scramble that a team actually failed to break 90 which amazed me.  The only thing that was a bit of BS was the long drive hole where two caddies and the Asst. Pro watched me hit my tee ball and all three said that in their years at the club they had never seen a ball where mine was on the hole.  The pro even said it was about 35 yards past the longest he had ever seen and it "somehow" did not hold up.

Saturday before Labor Day of 2014 will be one of those days I will always remember, I finally broke 90!! went 44 on the front & 45 on the back.

 

Could have easily been lower, had a greenside bunker shot for birdie stop about an inch from the hole & had a few par puts lip out.

 

I know 89 isn't a big deal for a lot of you but it is for me!!

Today, I will do what others will not so that...

 

Tomorrow, I will do what others can not

Congrats... breaking 90 took me years to do... I'm going on 5-6 years while breaking 90 that I can't break 80. That is the worst part, trying to get better.

Bet you weren't as happy as the first time Kenny.

 

I just got home from playing the par 3 course that I used for the SCOR testing. So long as I'm hitting driver well and it's not crowded I'm practicing there. No one cares if I hit five balls on a hole so long as I fix my ball marks and don't slow play down. In just over an hour I can hit 30-40 full shots, a variety of chips a pitches, sand shots and putts another 40 or so of them. Out of 30 balls that I played out I made 28 pars and 2 bogeys. The no birdies was weird but it was what it was, I had looks just no makes. I hit two hybrids, one from the rough behind the 3rd tee, made the hole 173 uphill, into a slight breeze, a nice 5 hybrid that I hit on 25 right, hole high. The other was on 9, 187 to a smallish green guarded by a bunker right. It was the only ball that I teed up on because it's similar to number 8 and number 15 on the big course and 15 has been killing me. Started it at the left edge of the trap, nice high draw that ended up 17 feet short left of the pin. Very good way to end the day.
