Yesterday was a really off day.  Shot 45 on the front (3 doubles!), then double the 18th for a 38 on the back.  We had 7 teams today.  My team was a 2 handicap that shot 81, me with my 83, a 9 handicap that shot 85, and a 16 handicapper shooting a 90.  We didn't win.  😄

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

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

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

Sloppy “Cart Path Only” again morning 9. Plus 5, not particularly good at anything.

Starting next Monday BIG changes. Cash will be accepted at Pro Shops again, 2 people in carts required, rakes back in traps/bunkers & PVC will be removed holes.
I’m not particularly thrilled w 2 in a cart (except for SWMBO). 2 carts max per 4some will be problematic, we are ALL Seniors and everyone has pre-existing conditions or some kind of problem. There will be blowback on this.

Yeah, that's not good on the carts and not fair.

Had a disappointing 9 hole round - my mental attitude went downhill and then I got mad at myself for letting that happen........

Actually hit a few good, some decent and several ok-ish shots for a basically bogey golf average .. but let myself get distracted and frustrated by the three guys in front of us .. they were those kind of wannabe playahs that acted like they were in the field on a Sunday afternoon at Augusta...

Comically slow, in retrospect, but on this course there wasn't much opportunity to play through 😞

So back to my game ☺️

Still having trouble with going left off the tee; I'm generally making good contact and the ball is flying but they're pulls and or pull-draws. Had one spot-on tee shot .. but dare I hope I can recreate it..?

Irons and wedges were playable, some a little chunky and some a little thin, but generally went in the right direction.

Putting was .. literally .. a little hit or miss - had three (THREE!) 3-putts in 9 holes, offset by three 1-putts for 18 putts total. Two of those 3-putts I had a realistic chance at 1 putting but my speed ended up way off and sent the ball waaaay past the holes both times.

Playing 18 tmrw with an old buddy so hopefully I can keep my s*** together and play some decent golf!

My wife and I drove down to Corvallis OR (300 mile trip) on Tuesday to see my dad.  He will be 90 next month and has been in COVID locked down for 7 months, so we haven't been able to visit.  We could only sit with him outside for 45 minutes on Tuesday afternoon, then again on Wednesday afternoon for 45 minutes.  They schedule visits for residents every hour, then clean the chairs for the next visit.
So, Wednesday morning with nothing to do, we got the 1st tee time at 8:00am at Spring Hill GC in Albany, OR.  This course used to be private but is now semi-private.  For many years I have driven by the course wishing I could play it.  A few holes front a highway that went to Albany from my mom and dad's house.  This is a lovely course!!  I think it was built in 1960 and has hosted the Oregon Open a few times.  It's not a long course at 6500y from the tips; par 72, rating 71.7 and slope 129.  I played the White tees at 5960y; 68.9/124.  Never been on the course before; shot 42/37 = 79 with one birdie and NO doubles or worse!!.  I was very happy with that score since I was in 5 bunkers that were very firm, wet sand; nothing like sand at my course.  My wife shot a very decent 88, and had two good bunker shots as well..
Although the grass was very wet, there were no puddles.  The course had been plugged and sanded recently, and there was a little sand on the greens, but they rolled quite nicely.  If I lived in the area, I would join this club AND the price is very reasonable IMO.
Some photos:
The chipping green hadn't been mowed yet this morning!!

Hole #9 looking at the clubhouse... YES, that's the clubhouse!!
IMG_5339.jpeg.f5c4a81456aee57cf4dda976d144c8a0.jpeg
 
I was in a groove on the back nine.  Here's something I can NOT do at my course...  back up the ball on a green!!  Normally, my ball lands on a green, maybe make a slight dent, then roll forward.  Not here!!  At my course this ball would have been next to the hole... but probably in the cup!

The view afterwards, sitting on the patio having a couple beers.  #18 green on the right; #9 green on the left, and out of the photo on the left you can watch people playing their 2nd shot all the way to the #1 green.

Nope!  Most of it is closed now because of COVID.  The bottom level has a grill and the patio that we sat on, as well as the rest rooms, men's and ladies locker rooms and fitness center.  The upper level includes a dining area that was closed.  I didn't go up there, but will try to do so next visit.  It used to be private, but they had to go semi-private to help pay bills.  They also have a nice pool.  Membership for single is $3190 for a single, including unlimited range pass.  A $1250 initiation fee is being waived right now; must need new members!

This is basically what a membership at our muni costs, and it's not nearly as nice.  The only problem is it's the Willamette Valley (where I grew up) and it rains, and rains, and rains a lot.  It's nice now, but I don't think I would want to play there next month or until late spring!!

Played very poorly yesterday for a 93. Had no idea with the driver until the last 3 holes which I finished +1. Learned quite a bit about my set up from those last three holes that I'll take with me when I play on Friday.

I was paired up with a father and son. The boy plays for my local high school team and was playing a practice round for a tournament at the club today. That kid can hit the ball a mile. He was hitting 3 wood off the tee from the blues (I play the whites) and on my best straightest drive was longer by 20+ yards.

I play with kids like that occasionally.  I always tell them that they will hit the ball just as far as I do when they are my age.  🤣

Between lost balls in water, trees, and even the rough(???), two unplayable plugged lies, it was a double bogey fest. Not sure what my actual score would've been, probably around 90-92.  I only made 6 pars and a bunch of bogeys. I also picked up after double a bunch of times because of the format. 

You can take free relief if your ball is embedded in the general area.

Participated in a scramble with a few buddies yesterday at Sagamore Country Club in Noblesville.  Greens were punched about a week ago but starting to heal and our team was able to make a lot of putts.  When I swung within myself, I had a lot of good shots - not great, but was pleased with how I played overall.  We used a lot of my drives and even more of my approaches.  Unfortunately for the group I was not attacking pins, but still coming up with 15 - 25 foot attempts.

Best of the day was honestly a putt that I made for eagle from 60 feet with about 4.5 feet of break.  Also got a hold of a really nice drive on a 350 yard par 4 and had about 10 yards to green.  

Team ended up in second with a 16 under score.

Tuesday 9 hole Exec. Rained this morning (surprise!) and course was wet and sloppy.

Started Bogie, Bogie then had a an epiphany, my grip felt “different” lately. I fooled around w grip and whatta know, height came back, baby draw and distance better!
A while back I switched to the “Align” CCM grips and I think it’s been hurting my grip, backswing somehow.
Finished 5 Pars & 2 Birds adjusting my grip.

Went early with my buddy to get him warmed up for his qualifier today so we didn't keep score. But the really odd thing was shooting an eagle on the same hole as yesterday.

I really can't remember eagling the hole ever. But this is now with the Mavric and the Speedzone 3-wood

I never even really tried getting home in two, just always played for a good wedge in, and perhaps a birdie. Now that I think of it, just last week I was like a foot off and actually putted for the eagle but missed and had a 6 inch birdie left...

In my opinion there’s a lot of “rushing” things to appear normal to the incoming political correct term “Seasonal Residents”.
Our Tuesday group is a bit older, avg 74-75 and none of them are happy w the changes.
