Ha funny coincidence - it was Stonebridge!!

Are you on LI? We should meet up sometime! I'll PM you...

Stonebridge has one redeeming quality though.

I haven't played there since pre-Covid, but they had a Happy Hour/Barbecue out on the patio with two for one drinks and some great food specials. As long as you avoided incoming golf balls for 4 1/2 hours, the 19th hole was tough to beat.

Do you guys ever play Mill Pond, Cherry Creek or any of the other courses out East? I was up on the Island earlier this summer. I didn't bring my clubs but my friends said it was really hard to get tee times anywhere...

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

Un-bloody-conscious! I still can't believe it but I shot a 79! 57% FIR 33% GIR 30 putts.

i played about a dozen rounds at the two cherry creek courses back in july and really liked them both.

Yeah the deck did look nice but by the time we were done we both just wanted to "get the puck 😉 outta there!"

Played Mill Pond once - nice course - though for some unknown reason after a really good tee shot one of the guys behind us decided to drive over onto our fairway looking for extra balls .. and picked up mine! Yeah tried yelling really loudly but he just went about his, uhh, business.... Maybe @Chip Strokes and I should meet up there 😀. Have also played Island's End out by Greenport - that's a nice course, with several challenging holes, and people seem to respect your safety and your (ha ha) balls. Have not tried Cherry Creek or The Links (next door) but have heard they're fun and are on my "wanna visit" list.

Yeah, all the courses around me were solidly booked up ALL Summer ... there were occasional end of day times or you could reserve / pre-pay up to two weeks ahead to get a time! We ended up driving around to different places - and so our "adventure" at Stonebridge!

played a practice round working on various shots. the MavSZ continues to launch bombs. Did a lot of bump and runs with PW instead of my normal 60* for everything. Icon PW rocks. 

Shot really well, and have been on a bit of a tear ever since I've got this new swing going.

I played Cottonwood Hills in Bozeman, MT yesterday and shot a stinker 91.  Absolutely gorgeous day and conditions.  I was one of two singles joining a twosome; the other single was this youngster who was playing a practice round in preparation for the Gallatin Valley Open this Sat/Sun.  The twosome only played the front nine and Thane and I finished the back.  He played from the black and I played from the blue tees.  A former collegiate and pro tour player who has created a pretty interesting business.  Listening to the sound of his first tee shot I knew immediately one in the group had serious game.  It was fun watching his 300+ yard, towering drives, whistle off into the Rocky Mountain air.

Anyway, my point in sharing is that regardless of how our individual games turn out on any given day, you just never know who you might end up playing a round with. A super nice guy and I hope to hear that he won the GVO.

Rough morning. The course was chaos at sun up, guys hit into us on 1 and then just drove past us on 2. I woke up with a stiff neck, and by 11 it crept into my right shoulder and there was discomfort at set up. I didn't hit 2 shots in a row for the last 8 holes. Greens were punched & sanded so putting was all over. I was +3 thru 10 and everything fell apart physically.

Wow, this has been a tough week.

Played Tuesday and hit my irons very poorly. I'm not a range rat, but I put in some hard work the last two days trying to fix things, and I thought I did. I even hit a few this morning before our 740 tee time, and was just striping it. I couldn't wait too get out there.

The weather wasn't great, misty rain and windy, but I started off with 4 pars and a three putt bogey from about 40 feet. Just like on the range I was hitting the ball really solid, covering it really well. Then... boom! I just lost it. One bad swing after another, and as has been happening lately, my swing got quicker and quicker.

I wasn't the only one to struggle. A 7 cap playing in my group shot 93, so at least I tied him, LOL. Golf is hard, but what's even harder is to keep your composure when things aren't going well. The only good thing I can take from today is that I didn't carry on like he did, and make everyone else's day worse.

Back to the range I guess. Like Hogan said, "the answer is in the dirt". (at least I think that's what he said 🤔)

man i hate playing on the weekends at my local public course. 

10th hole today there were three (!!!) groups on at once. 

full shots were a bit of a mess today, i was having trouble keeping the face closed. 

luckily i can walk away happy about my short game. 

had two great short sided chips that i put to within 5 feet, and a bunker up and down that i rolled out to within 2’ to save par.

Had a fun day yesterday with the Ohio boys at @tony@CIC 's club.

Got hot out of the gate paring the first 3 hole, then got a bit shaky but shot a 42 on the front. Hit my best drive of the day on the par 5 10th, slightly pulled my hybrid to pin high right of the green, pitched on and the ball tracked all the way to the hole where it hit the pin leaving an easy 3-4 footer for birdie...then the wheels fell off and I ended up with a 47 on the back. Considering the the rating was 70.7 and 131 slope from the white tee's, I was happy but at the same time a little disappointed.

Sounds very familiar... you just described my last month of golf. The only thing different is that you didn't mention it was 2 or 3 bad holes which were the difference between that 89 being an 83 or 84.

We're about the same level golfer it seems. I think I have the ability to play pretty well, but I'm just not doing it for the entire round. It always seems like it's 2 or 3 swings per round that are the culprit, and instead of recovering from them with a bogey, they become a double or triple.

I really liked how Tony said those were the EASY pins yesterday. Just shows how much more work I need to put in to get my game where I want it.

Difficult week. Played Monday, Thursday & Saturday. It’s rained every single day for about 3 weeks. Cart path only every course we played actually some shouldn’t be open. I played as poorly as I can which is now becoming a trend.
Playing tomorrow morning and of course it’s rained already today and more rain expected.
Whining over.....

Played so bad that I should just give golf up.  Wipey 230 yard drives...  frustrating dang game this is.  Couldn’t keep driver or 3 wood on the planet.  Just terrible.  Heeling every shot, even shanked a go zone 58° wedge.  I think I’m going to take up basket weaving.

 

ok. Better now.

Hope you are right.  If not, it might be time to switch to SGI irons and a draw biased driver.  That’s how bad this round was.  And it was because of the driver.  Having a 3 iron in, rather than a 7 or 8 makes a huge difference.  Haha.  
 

maybe I should have done that iron only round after all...

It’s pretty beneficial I think. Use the wedges though lol. I took a 2 week hiatus after the really bad round and it helped

I knew there was no way I was going to keep scoring in the 70's for the rest of the year. My brother and I played a different course today that was 6200 yards from the white tees. I shot 39 and 44 for an 83. I missed a few putts that might have netted me a 79 or 80 even. I'll take that every time. It was a good day, and the score wasn't terrible...lol.
