Another 81 after putting together a nice 39 on the front, though needing a couple birdies to get that done just not able to keep it together on the back, closing in 42. Driver was a bit all over the place, but working on some swing changes so it was to be expected. Onto the next one.

Don’t know how you got out today. Rain all night and today.
 

 

... Funny how that works. We would gladly give up several days of golf for some rain. This is the driest I can remember courses and our homes/gardens/trees in a long time. I don't care about the grass but the trees need water. We are just in a pocket where rain has fallen 20 miles north or south of us but we have gotten zero rain. After the wettest May in history we are paying for it now.

This has been a week long streak of rain here. Unusual, at least for me in last 8 years without a tropical storm or more.

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.

We have already started talking about how this heat stuff is now going to affect my friend and we need to watch out for her.

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

I assume you're asking about the cart flamingo in my profile photo. Luckily we don't have any tunnels. No, that flamingo is long gone. We had a cart decorating contest along with our Flamingo Tournament (we won!). We did drive it throughout the tournament but a low tree limb close to the end caught the neck and demolished it.

 We have fun decorating our carts for special events. Like every Christmas we have a night time lighted cart and old car parade through the neighborhoods that surround our course. It's fun, a fire truck leads us blowing the horn and I hang off the back of our cart to throw candy to the kids. One hard and fast rule, nothing can be attached in a way that is permanent or damages the cart.

I'm not a super serious golfer, but I have a super great time with our golf community - club, course and neighborhood.

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.

I'm glad to hear she's ok and taking care of herself. I hope she's able to tee it up with your group before too long. Thank you for the update!

We had our annual Ryder cup style event this weekend.

Made 8 birdies over 2 days and won my singles match 2 up. Halved the 4 ball.

Also had 4 doubles. Ugh. Tidy up some loose swings and short misses and I shoot 68/69.

We get 100-112º days in the summer but low humidity.  My wife  quit playing on hole #7 of her ladies league a couple of weeks ago because she was "feeling it".  She stays hydrated and keeps those cooling towels with her on the course, but it still happens.

For many years I had professional meetings every July in Phoenix, Tucson, Palm Desert, Las Vegas, Orlando, and Naples, FL.  We always played golf when we went, so the heat has always been a concern for her.

Your friend will be very susceptible from now on.  If your friend starts to feel it, she needs to stop and get cool immediately.

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 think I should start whining.  OK, today was better... if you call 87 better than 88.  Nothing good happened today, but nothing really bad either; only one double. Seemed like I was always scrambling to make a par... and didn't.

I think I need a break.

As someone who lived in Arizona for the better part of 3 years. Hydration hydration hydration. Especially if the water is cold, it can be a life saver. My record was 5 water bottles on the course and a 6th in the car.

Played twice after my 35.

Had to find out if it was the barefeet that made the difference from that under par round. I played another 9 barefoot at our sister course Thursday and started bogey bogey. After that, I was even coming in. Other than a ball in the water on an island green and a follow up birdie after driving the green on a par 4, they were almost all tap in pars.

Played up a tee box from the usual blues at my home course and started with 45 on the front . Rallied on the back for a 40 to break 90 for the first time this year. The 85 is more than a good score, it's more a reflection of how far I've come over last 2-3 months I'd say up until last year I was flipping my wrists and relying on great timing which lead to a lot of great rounds and a lot of really poor rounds. After a lesson plus an informal lesson this summer, my game is now more consistent then ever and think I have a legit chance of breaking 80 in the near future.

Hit some great shots and some really bad ones for a 93. The new swing continues to make it frustrating to play but is improving. The two highlights of the round was I managed 270 off the tee on 3 holes and I had no 3 putts.

Everyone's getting a 'breakfast ball' except for @MattF and @Mr_Theoo. They both said they're arriving early and going to the driving range. I think they're really secretly going to #1 to scope it out before all of us get to the tee box. 😂.

After 3 weeks off, I shot 104. Ouch. Turns out if you don't play or practice for a few weeks your feel goes to crap. Overall it was a good day and it was crazy windy. Everyone in my foursome was about 15 strokes higher than usual.

Had a great Day out with my grandson yesterday, this is only his 2nd real golf experience.. we had a good time.. I tweaked my back on fri at work so was a little stiff but felt OK when we tee'd off. Put the Cleveland Zipcore wedge into play on the 1st hole. Stuck it to about 15 feet, when I say stuck it I mean stuck it. moved a putter length from the ball mark.. Par... played the front 9 good we had to wait for a group of tour pro's throughout the whole round... by about 9 the back started stiffening up while having to wait.. shot a front 9, 38. Had a long wait on 10 and got stiff, proceeded to struggle through the back. When we were able to keep playing I got into a good groove and played well, if i had to wait any all bets were off.. All in all a great day shot a 46 on the back to go 84 for the day, on a course that the last time I played I shot a 111.. so I am very happy with the round..
