Played 36 today since I am not playing tomorrow and posted two rounds of -1 70 with the same split of 38-32. Kind of bizarre but will take it today with the wind up and it not being a prime scoring day.

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

Sadly had a similar round the end of last week... Behind a group of 4 middle-aged men - LOTTA very serious practice swings on every tee box, which they insisted on standing at the very back of every time even though several times one or more of them did not clear the forward tees, LOTTA time standing over each and every shot and then.......
And then... ..then they get to the putting green.

Oh boy, makes for a long round.

I love that course - granted I have nothing else in the area to go off of. Fun layout though. Always try to squeeze a round in when I’m in town to see family and friends.

Btw, there’s something about that last three hole stretch that is just so unassuming and it bites back almost every time lol.

And my coworker made the comment about how he loves those last three holes! Ugh. 16 & 17 get me EVERY time. I hate the “new” fairway bunker on 18. Wasn’t there in ‘97. I hit 5 iron off the tee (blue), and it STILL got in there. Nowhere to go on that hole with the bunker AND the huge oak on the left.

16 tripped me up bad once, but 17 always gets me for whatever reason. I've never played 18 without the bunker. It certainly makes that tee shot feel claustrophobic.

48/50 for a wet & soggy 98. 6 FiRs, 3 GiRs. 3 pars. Short game was decent today with only one 3 putt the entire round and a number of decent wedges from 100 and in. But everything else was not good. Too many penalties off the tee, and a number of topped shots which is unlike me. Usually my miss is a big ol' fattie. 

The rain was an on and off sprinkle until we got to 15 when it became an outright downpour so we got soaked the last 4 holes. On the good side though, the two of us finished in 3 hours 1 minute since there was no one in front of us. That's 3 hours and 1 minute I didn't spend in the office, so all is good 🙂

Whaling City Golf Course in New Bedford. It's normally a bit of a wet course anyways due to drainage (new owners are doing a lot to fix that thankfully) and location, but today was mud ball after mud ball with the steady drizzle.

Same. I've seen a LOT of brown on the last 3 courses I've played... and my backyard! It's been steady & heavy since I left the course at 1pm.

I had a rough night in league last night. We were in first place (and have been the majority of the season). It was our regularly scheduled match against the 2nd place team. We started the evening 13 points in front of 2nd place and 13.5 in front of 3rd. My partner did his job (shot his handicap), but I failed - I shot 48 (+12) for a net +5. If we had scored well, we could have locked up 1st place for the season (since we won the first half) making the next two weeks of playoffs nothing but "fun" days for us. It turns out the 3rd place team had a great night and leap-frogged into first (compounded by my good friend's net +6 - I swear he sabotaged me). We dropped to 3rd. The good news, in my mind, is the A players on those two teams are the two lowest HC's in our league and are both very consistent, so in next weeks 2nd half playoff, I don't imagine there will be any lopsided scores from either team (depending on what the B players do, of course, but neither of them have scored a ton this season), so if we have a good week next week, we could be back in first. Right now, 3 points separates 1st - 3rd.

I actually drove the ball pretty well - 4/6 fairways on driver holes with decent distance given the amount of rain we had over the weekend. The two misses bordered on ridiculous, but they were bad enough that I had a shot from the next fairway over. Irons were a disaster and I 2-putted every single green (didn't matter if it was 5 feet or 50 feet). If I were hitting a bunch GIR's, I'd be OK with 2 putts, but since I had to chip on every hole but one, that's not good. Chipping was meh... I left myself some decent looks and burned the edges, but nothing would fall.

A cruddy day for golf - both weather and score. Our Wednesday men's traveling group went to Plum Brook CC in Sandusky. Weather forecast was 20% chance of rain. By the 2nd hole the 20% was really a downpour and about 20 mph of wind.

IMG_5717.thumb.JPG.fc3d655d67acfc55e4ca8aa5fbeaadda.JPG

The rain stopped after several holes but the wind was pretty steady at 20+. And it seemed like we were always hitting into the wind. It made the 'muffin top' greens that much more difficult to hit. Walked off with a 93 and wet shoes (feet).

Way to battle though. I just hate when it rains hard and then stops and you are just wet the rest of the round.

I had the chance to play the upper course at Baltusrol on Tuesday.   I'm pretty sure I had the only American made car in the lot.  They are redoing the lower course but the place as a whole is unbelievable.  The history in the clubhouse alone is worth the visit.  Anyway, shot a 40/40 for 80 from the club tees so it was only at 6200 yards.

The round today much felt better than my last (2 week hiatus) where it felt like I had never played the game before. Contact was phenomenal today and was bombing some drives consistently. Chipping felt realllllly good which I needed today after my last abomination. Approach was short today which I chalk up to very high humidity and we have had some rain which took some roll out of a lot. Overall 42 with some just overall great shots:

Now that I have some good Arccos data there is clearly (which I figured was going to be but is very apparent now) a need for the gap wedge (need to re-pair now that I have 52/56/60 not 50/54/58 but the numbers are fairly accurate). 30 yard gapping between PW and 52 is just not acceptable...most likely be dropping the  4 iron because the hybrid and 5 iron are pretty versatile and need the bottom end covered better.

Thanks buddy!  The real kick in the nads is we had to use a caddie and he told me to club up and both times he did I flew the green and landed in bunkers.  Took me two shots to get out each time.  Then the d-bag made me rake my own bunkers.  I have never hit my irons as crisp as I did the other day but it was like playing on carpet the fairways were so nice.
