I just played in a 2-man scramble that took 7 freaking hours.

Played okay; really hard to get into any kind of rhythm.  5 under, not sure if we’ll place, but first time playing a tournament at this course and based on that pace probably the last...

I didn't know that it was that slow in Nebraska.  Guess that's why I never stopped on my drives through.

7 hours is torture even for a Charity event.
Hope you win something decent.

Takes some of the sting out but not quite enough.

Pretty damn well if I do say so. Something just clicked yesterday and I shot a 39/43 82. Hit some good shots and some crap ones but all in all it was a great day.

7 hours????? That's insane!!!!  I think I would have sent out a forward scout with a rifle to take out the slow players 😄 😄

Almost got through a round without one.....sadly, doubled number 18.  Sheesh!   9 over with 41/40.  Greens are still difficult to putt post aeration and sanding a few days ago.

I'm not a drinker on the course, but at least at that pacing you might even be able to manage a beer per hole and still be able to stand up at the end.

Yesterday I found myself once again waiting to see if FedEx arrived with a nice box before my twilight tee time and once again they didn't (I knew they wouldn't but you gotta have hope). with 3 G.I.R.s in a row, but no putts dropped until a surprise birdie on 5 (a hole I don't think I ever birdied before). Focus started drifting a bit as the sun set, so a couple of duck hooks came out, but then I got a nice "skipping stones" visualization going and mashed a few good ones on my last holes before it was completely dark.

83 (+11, net -5), 35 putts, 6/14 FIR, 8/18 GIR

Ball striking was killer for me this round. Going through a little swing change to shorten my back swing a bit and a few little tweaks that are giving me waaay more consistent results. Missed 3 (or 4?) birdie putts within 10 feet, which I can usually convert those. I've also been deploying a nice little stinger that I've been loving and keeping me out of trouble. 

Gotta love a beautiful Michigan fall day of golf!

Nice!  Always great when a swing change pays dividends. We're now getting strong hints that fall is in full swing.  Chance of snow tonight/early am... not unexpected at 5100' elevation.

So apparently I'm destined to not string more than two good rounds together ever again, LOL.

Moved up a tee to the greens today for league play, as it was wet, CPO, and well, we're old. The shorter layout didn't help me at all, as I shot 90 and finished out of the money. Six shots higher than I did on the same course from the whites earlier this week. 🤔

I've got to stop joking about how poorly I'm hitting my irons and buckle down and fix things. It's really become an issue.

Oh man, talking snow already?? We've got a little indian summer hitting us this week, so we don't have to think about the white stuff for a while yet fortunately
