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

Absolutely beautiful day today!!  No smoke, sunny with temp at 65º at 7:30 tee time and warmed up to 80º when we finished at 11am.  Ball striking still continues to be much better than the last few weeks.  Still having trouble getting the ball to the hole on chips and putts on our greens... still slow; beautiful looking but slow.  Shot 42 on the front nine, better than the 48 yesterday, and another 39 on the back nine for an 81 that included four (4) 3-putts, but I had NO doubles or worse!!!  I'm reading the putts well, just leaving the putt short, dead in the heart.  I also need to fly the ball closer to the hole on chips/pitches.  I had been playing more bump 'n runs, and they just don't run like I think they should.

38/40 today.  3 birdies today, 2 of them were gross skins and one of them paid both gross and net.   Double bogeyed a par 3 when I 3 putted 😄

Shot an 88 today in sunny but chilly weather. It was about 60 when my wife and I teed off, however, the wind was blowing 15-20. Driver worked for the most part today, but the greens were challenging since they were just punched and sanded a few days ago.

An issue that's surfaced is my short game. My wedges 52*, 56* and 60* have all lost distance. Need to figure what's going on - back to the practice holes next week.

Played 9 regular holes and shot 38. Then hit all irons on the back for the D7 test. The wind was 20 mph with gusts going up from there. Not ideal test conditions. But I saw the value of carrying a 4 iron. 🙂

 

Oh and I walked....

Still got the SCORs!!  Good for you.  Mine are sitting in the garage, except for the 50 that Martha stole to replace her set A wedge.

Wife told me to go play, so I caught the super twilight after work. First hole I hit a great drive down the right side of the fairway, then threw an absolutely dart of a gap wedge right over the flag, two feet for a kick in birdie.

Let’s not talk about the rest...

Played this diabolical par 3 in central Texas (White Bluff Old Course) and after all these years, I thought for sure they’d cut down this oak in the middle of the tee box. Nothing like flighting down a 7 iron but then hoping it climbs high enough to the elevated green. Just a few choice words were muttered upon arrival of this hole.

Total disaster of a round. 46/46:92. 5 was a magic number: 5 fairways, 5 greens, 5 3 putts, 5 doubles or worse.

This was just a round to forget and move on.

I'm laughing only because I just had a "stinker round" a couple weeks ago.  The round felt worse than the 91 result.  Of course I was playing from the blue tees (71.5/130/6678), trying to keep up with the pro who was getting ready for the weekend event (73.9/135/7053). At the first tee, I almost said "oh what the hell, I'll give the TIPS a try"... glad I reconsidered 🤪. His drives were easily 2x further than the average 21 yards/hole difference in distance.

I was actually playing up to work on 125 and under. It really was just on of those days...bad shots, bad decisions, and after the plus 10 front I just kinda lost mental focus to try and play decent. Hit the ball better during most wanted testing yesterday and hope to do the same tomorrow and get in a little more short game work before my round on Sunday.

Last 2 rounds have been nothing to talk about really, after weeks of finally getting my game in the right direction. 2 back to back rounds of 87 and 89 and the first one was just a horrible putting day with 38 putts and the second was back 9 doubles that couldn't get out of.. Stupid game of golf.. 🤬

But hey lets try again this weekend and get the ship back on the right course..

Our course hasn't mowed the tee boxes in a week.  It's like hitting out of rough; put a short tee in the ground on a par 3 and the club will hit grass before it hits the ball.  The rough is thick.  Oh yeah... and it's wet from irrigation last night.  Workers were mowing the rough at 7:30am leaving big piles of cut grass everywhere, and it's possible to still lose your ball in the rough.  Greens are still slow, but getting quicker every day.  I have to pretend that the hole is 3 feet further than it actually is in order to get the ball to the hole.  Sometimes I forget to do that.  They look quick, but aren't.

Shot a miserable 46 on the front nine that included a birdie on #2.  Made a double on the par 5 #5 hole; great drive in the middle of the fairway and was never out of the fairway all the way to the green!!  How does that happen??  I managed a good par on the par 5 #9 that seemed to turn my game around.  Shot 37 on the back nine with a birdie on #14.  Both of my birdies came on close approaches with a wedge, not from good putts.
