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

I got a hole in one on the first hole today. Makes for a really enjoyable round. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

Un-bloody-conscious! I still can't believe it but I shot a 79! 57% FIR 33% GIR 30 putts.

Was supposed to play today, but only 2 of us showed up, so off we went in separate carts.  Nobody in front of us and we finished the front 9 in an hour.  I shot 40 (not taking time on putts mainly).  Went par, par, par when we finally caught up to the group in front of us.  They were incredibly slow and there were groups in front of them.  My playing partner and I jointly agreed to call it a day.  He drove back to #9 where he lives and I headed in to the clubhouse.

Don't know how you guys with actual seasons do it. My wedge distance control is hot trash after only 6 weeks in lockdown, can't imagine if it were twice that.

If you read our posts... apparently we don't.   🤣

Man, my game is like night and day......Sunday I shot a 41/41:82 at Pebble Creek, then Tuesday I shot 48/49:97 at Plantation Palms, then today I shot 41/40:81 at Pebble Creek. Had 2 birdies and two penalties that ended up as doubles. I am bouncing around like a yo-yo!
 

Looks like you are most familiar with Pebble Creek.  Isn't that your home course?  That would be reasonable.  

What is the status of Pebble Creek?  Didn't you say It was closing?

Thanks KennyB, Pebble Creek is still for sale but there are no takers. The last group of developers said it would require several million dollars just to bring in dirt fill to bring the base up to where surrounding houses are. Not to mention, they must maintain the drainage as Pebble Creek drains into another large creek system. That said, I have been playing both courses weekly so I am familiar with both....just seems that PP is more difficult.

mixed bag today. shot a 96 overall, which is pretty much where i usually end up. 

my swing coach/fitter put a cobra driver together for me during my last lesson that he let me take and try out. we’ve been working on contact point and closing the club face. 

the result was 3 great tee shots. two with the driver and one with my driving iron. 

irons/approach shots were terrible

as usual, chipping and wedge play saved my ass

I haven't been posting in this thread a lot lately, because who wants to see what the guy who plays everyday shot again..

But today was different. It started with a chunked second shot on the first hole, which led to a 40 yd chip to 8 feet and dropped the par put. and many more like that.

and 7 birdies, and only one bogie , for a new PB of ...

>>>>>.....   65  .... <<<<<<

and I'm 64.5, does that qualify as shooting my age? hehe

Dang!!! That’s awesome.

the good thing is I shoot 65 EVERY DAY I PLAY! 😂😂😂😂 
I cant even imagine. Congrats!!!

- 39 (+3)
- 5/8 FIR
- 6/9 GIR (1 birdie)
- 18 Putts (2 3-putts, 5 2-putts, 2 1-putts)

Rainy, dreary day today with no sun and a high temperature only around 50. Figured the course was pretty empty and it was, so I hopped off the back nine and slid between the few groups that were out today and avoided any heavy rain.

This was probably the first round all season immediately post-lesson that I played pretty well. Hit a lot of greens (Nos. 12-17), and just missed hitting No. 18 by about a yard long (notched a chip-and-down for par). Didn't hit the ball exceptionally far since I was bundled up, but I hit my targets and didn't kill my score with bad shots off the tee.

I just unfortunately went bogey-bogey to open the nine and then had back-to-back three putts for bogey on 15 and 16 because I was 60+ feet away on the green with my approaches.

40/40 today.   #4 is a par 3 with a creek running on the right side on a downward slope.  I pushed my 7 iron right, hit the hillside over the trap and watched it bounce right in the creek.  It's a lateral drop there.  Pitched up a bit long and missed the putt.  And THAT is how you make double!  😄
