Well, I can't see Canada... I can barely see across the street.  Air Quality Alert for Dangerous conditions was supposed to end today at noon, now extended until Friday.  Courses closed, which is OK because they were suppose to punch the fairways and greens today if they let staff work.

Played okay it's a short course which allowed me to try my driving iron out a lot. I started off hitting it off the toe then it went to hitting everything fat. I finally pulled my ball striking from the gutter and kept things together missing a few par putts. Gamed my old putter and had more 3 putts than I have all year which is why I put the thing up but wanted to see how I could do with it. Made some nice shots and finally got the driving iron figured out along with my ball striking on the last 3 holes.

Got out for a pre-work round this morning. Was tight on the front nine and not a lot of good shots. Mood was really killed by one of the players I got paired with, poor shots followed by streams of curses and club tosses. By the back 9 though, I loosened up physically and he loosened up mentally, playing the entire back side with his 5 iron and performing a lot better for it! I went 42-37 for a respectable 79 total.

Played a member/member over the weekend.  Various formats each 9 holes and low score wins.  We shot a 28 in the 2 man scramble portion to take a 2 stroke lead with 9 to go.  My partner is putting from the fringe and during his practice stroke he knocks the ball backwards.  If he were on the green or tee box it isn't a penalty stroke.  I guess on the fringe it is.  When he did putt he left himself a 1 footer for double and missed it.  We lost by 2 strokes but had a ton of fun....other than that hole.

Played early 9 Monday & today and once again Cart Path Only. Yesterday not too bad in the slop, lost a ball mid fareway to “casual pond”. This morning not good. The slop for last week plus took its toll and I lost interest.
Canceled golf for Wednesday & Friday and will play Monday if courses dry out somewhat. Hearing a splash/spat on my shots is discouraging.
Lawn/flowers/shrubs sure is growing like crazy

I posted here about how badly I played last week, culminating with a horrible round on Saturday after thinking I had worked things out on the range. I got a lot of encouragement from people here, but what really helped were comments from @Kenny B and @silver & black. S&B talked about how he stopped focusing on score so much, and trying to forget a bad shot after it happened instead of letting that linger.

When I read that, I thought it would be difficult for me, because I rarely play a casual round. I'm always playing in either a league or money game, so score matters. I decided to clear my head and not touch a club from Saturday until yesterday mornings tee time. I didn't even take an air swing. What I did do was try to imagine myself taking a swing with a smoother tempo, instead of trying to "crush" every shot.

Yesterday turned out to be a dream pairing. We were playing two man best ball, and my partner had to cancel at the last minute, which meant I wouldn't know who my teammate was until they did a blind draw  after we were done. That took a lot of pressure to perform off of me, as did the fact the team I played with were two really nice guys. One is a good friend who plays to a 11, and the other was just the type of player I needed to be with after all my whining last week. He was once an excellent player, a few strokes above scratch. He suffers from a disease now that causes his hands to shake very badly. It's sad to watch him hit a ball so poorly, and even more heart breaking to watch him try to steady them and try to putt. He barely breaks a 100 now, yet never complains. He's a perfect gentleman who carries himself like he's still the player he was, and he's always encouraging to others.

I hit the ball really well yesterday, my irons were so much better. The putter was cold at the beginning, and I had a few 3 putts on the opening nine. That evened out though, as I later made a few long ones I wasn't expecting. It was a good day. Same course I blew up on Saturday, I shot a 43-41/84 yesterday.

Bottom line? I need to learn I'm not a Tour Pro, lol. I'm going to play badly at times. Stop beating myself up when I do. It's not the end of the world.

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS....
We had the championship match tonight. My opponent and I were next to each other on the range hitting bombs with beautiful flight. As is usually the case, we both stunk it up a bit on the course. We ended up tied on strokes (both +2 over our HC's) and we were close on holes, but I think I beat him. My partner handily beat his opponent. Overall, it was a great season. My partner has been playing in leagues a long time and figured something out - he dropped his handicap 5 strokes this season so will be bumped to A flight next year. I managed to drop mine 2 strokes, which I'll take.
Tonight I started par, par, bogey and finished par, bogey so I was +7 on the other holes with 3 penalties. According to Arccos, chipping was the best part of my game. Go figure, after having the yips this weekend. Getting back to the basics and trying [mention=69826]Tsmithjr9[/mention]'s tip helped greatly. I even chipped one in.
Woooooooooo congrats!

What a FANTASTIC day. Beautiful early fall day here in the northeast at very nice course that is a treat to play.

Overall 83. 7/14 FIR 10/18 GIR and a few 3 putts. 1 Bird 8 Pars 6 Bogeys 3 Doubles

Overall game was very good (around the green was eh)

Handful of PB but beat my best drive....twice:

Also had a very nice 9 iron that landed about 5' from the pin and spun back to 3' pin high for my only bird of the day:

Other than that just a beautiful day (interesting side note the haze in the sky on the first 2 here is from the CA wildfires)
