90 today,  hit driver horrible until the last 3 holes.  Irons and putting were ok,  struggled with chipping/pitching.  I think I have the driver straightened out,  I think I was trying to guide it as opposed to just swinging the golf club.

Rev, reading your posts here and in the SCOR review thread has given me renewed purpose regarding my wedge game!

It is really nice to have some clubs/ shots that at least feel automatic. Right now driver, wedge and short iron are there, fairway woods are close and I think I've found something with the hybrids and putter.

 

I doubt middle irons will ever move into the automatic category for me. :(

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

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

 

 

 

No...  no I wasn't.  It was a tougher than usual course for me, but I also didn't hit my driver all that well and the putts just weren't there to make up for it.  Oh well,  next time.  Which is a short trip to Spokane tomorrow for a 3-day weekend.  Playing with a jazz musician from Seattle who perform our wedding ceremony; not the music, the actual ceremony!

Sorry rev, my mistake.  I meant GOLF!  

 

Before we got married, my wife and I met this jazz pianist and his uncle on a golf course in Spokane back in 2005.  Had a great time and we kept in touch and played with him in Seattle the next year.  He said he had recently got a minister's license in Wa state, and performed a marriage ceremony for some friends of his (when asked to do it, he actually thought they were asking him to play the piano!)  Well, we were thinking about getting married the next year, so we asked him if he would do our wedding.  He agreed; we had the ceremony on the first tee of our golf course, said "I do" and turned around and teed off.  We rented the course for the day; had carts for everyone; had cupcakes with green frosting and a small chocolate golf ball on top of each one instead of a wedding cake; and of course a bartender serving drinks.  Had a great time!!

Actually, it was her idea. We met on the golf course (she's a 19 HCP). Her dad was a scratch golfer and club champion at 3 different clubs in Spokane/Coeur d'Alene area. She had 5 older brothers and an older sister; all played golf. We had both been married before so the big wedding was not really considered. We had about 100 people attend and about half played golf that day. Good memories, indeed!

Great story Kenny.

 

Great round Matt only because it debunks my least favorite saying.  Drive for show putt for dough.  Yout better drive it well if you even want the putt to matter.

I have done a few weddings on courses, one included a post wedding round.  This family is the coolest, 13 kids, all succesful in their chosen life field.  One is a super at Blackwolf run, a true five star resort in Kohler WI where the Woman's Open has been played.  He actually built a hole at his parent's house that is played off of their back porch.  Any visitor must hit a shot as soon as they come in the house.  There are a variety of clubs in the house.  The hole is 84 yards, downhill, over a little river.  They have a plaque on the wall for hole in ones.

 

It is way, way, too awesome.

It's amazing that the little things like that really make a big difference in our lives. It would be too cool to hit off the porch onto a green any time I wanted. If I did that now, I would hit my brother-in-law's house (the brother she hated the most; and a 7 HCP)

But would it be bad to hit his house? :)

Nope! I'm sure she would love to do it. He was the one that tormented her the most when they were kids.

Shot 78 today.  I've been playing a lot of tough courses lately and this was no exception - we played tees that we blended some of which were the tips.  It's a former tour course and we'd were attempting to play it in a way that would give us a tour like experience - back on the par 3's and a couple of longer par 4's but up on the par 5's to have a shot at reaching them in 2 - it was fun.

 

My putting let me down a bit, I holed a couple but three putted twice, silly three putts really and missed a couple of shorter looks for birdie.

Shot a 43/47, 90 on Saturday and a 43/46, 89 on Sunday.

 

Sunday's round was with my 2nd oldest grandson, Jonathan. He just turned 17 last week.  He has not played in almost a year, so I did not keep his score. Rather, If he did not get off the tee with a Mulligan, he dropped a ball next to mine in the fairway so he could have a shot at the green.  He had some difficulty judging the distance for his irons and flatstick, but got the hang of it and played pretty good on the back.  Sunday's round was played from the Senior Tees.

83 today but it felt like 93.  Struggled on the front to get the driver in the fairway but got it going on 9 and hit driver pretty decent the rest of the day.  No birdies but I made about a 30 footer to save par after a long bunker shot on a par 3.  All in all I'm happy with the results since it felt like I could have played much better.

Went to Spokane, WA on Sunday and played a course that I had never played before.  It was pretty wet from irrigation and I am not used to hitting off wet ground, plus no roll-out so longer shots into the green.  Shot 87 which was not bad considering I had a 9 on the par 4 18th.  Ugh!

Here is how I finished last Saturday on 14,15,16,17,18. 6,6,2,6,4, that's double, double, birdie, double, birdie, for 41, it was a good 41 at that point, I love to hate this game sometimes.

Played today for the first time in 3 weeks other than hitting the range. Irons have def improved in consistency... although I had a few hanks which is unusual for me. 

 

Managed to shoot 91 but it was one bad hole that killed me. I drove the ball well but gave myself not a lot of easy putts... but had no 3 putts, even two putted from 60 feet.

 

Not bad for not playing in a few weeks.
