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

League is officially over, but we will continue to play until the time change as weather permits. The only thing at stake is skins, so my friend and I decided to try more "hero" shots when we were out of position since a skin was unlikely. It gave us a chance to practice shots we wouldn't otherwise try. A couple worked out, the others, not so much, but it was fun to try. My score would have been 45-ish, but I didn't record a score for one hole. I had pulled my drive left on a dogleg right par 5, under a tree. Had my score mattered, I would have punched out and moved on. Instead, I saw a decent-sized window and tried a full 3w. I smoked it, but it ricocheted off the one branch that was a concern to me. None of the 4 of us had any clue what direction it went and it wasn't any place obvious, so I recorded an X and dropped about 100 yards out. After we tee'd off the next hole, my friend found my ball in the rough in front of the tee box. It travelled a LONG ways for a ball deflected by a branch.

I found a par 3 course about 10 minutes from home that you can pay $12 to play all day so i have been playing there for the past 3 weeks working on my iron game. Between that and going to the range every week it seems to be paying off. Also finally dunked a flop shot from a few yards off the green this past week

I started playing on a par 3, when many of them were not par 3s. Great way to work on your game.

That sounds like a lot of fun, nd something I'd enjoy a lot more than going to the range.

Shot an 80 today.  Should have been better, but they just punched the greens and they're heavily sanded.  Putting was, to say the least, a challenge for everyone.

...NO double bogeys though I'm guessing??? 🤪

fall is definitely here...had a 3:48 tee time and only got 9 in comfortably. 

what an up and down 9 holes. 

5 pars, a bogey, two doubles, and a triple for 44

i was in scramble mode the whole time. driving iron was blocked right, i couldn’t close the club face to save my life. 

short game was awesome today though. 4th hole, par 3, hit my tee shot pin high but right of the green. chipped to a foot. 7th hole approach shot found the green side bunker on the short side. hit a beautiful high arcing flop shot that just caught the fringe and rolled to 2 feet to save par.

Our Wednesday traveling group went to a muni called Thunderbird in Huron, Ohio. We played the north course which is a hilly parkland style with narrow fairways and lots of trees. The greens were just punched and sanded and were extremely slow. Ended up with an 89, mostly due to my putting.

That time of year already? I've only played the south at Thunderbird, how do the two 18s compare?

Got to play 9 yesterday afternoon and things improved greatly from the previous round.  7 pars, 1 bird and a double on a lost ball.  Never caught anyone so we got around in 1:25 and didn't feel like we were playing fast.  👍

I played Caledonia yesterday, which for my money is the most beautiful course down here on the Grand Strand. We couldn't have asked for a better day, and because my travel group is 120 players strong, I got to play this gem for under $60. This is the beginning of the best time for golf down here, the temps have dropped after months of 100* heat indexes, and we are getting mid 70's with low humidity. The course was in great shape, the greens were fantastic, flowers were in full bloom, and we even saw a few gators, lol. They were pretty big, too, and trust me we see some good sized ones down here...

It's a tough track though, the rough is penalizing, and the design of the course demands that you have a variety of shots in your bag. As for how I played, everything was good except my irons (I'm now convinced they know I have a set of PXG 0211's on the way), I don't think I hit more than 3 greens all day. As is often the case though with my game, when one part isn't working, another is. My wedges really helped me yesterday, and I felt like I couldn't miss with my putter. I even drained a 25 footer to save a double on what could have been my one blow up hole.

To sum it all up, I shot 41-42-83 on about as challenging a 6100+ yard course you'll ever play. I'm really happy with how I grinded out a good score on a day when I struggled so much with the irons.

BTW here's something you don't read about often. I mentioned there were 120 players in our group yesterday... TWO of them had holes in one!!!! The drinks were flowing afterwards! 🍻🍻🍻🥃🥃🥃
