Played Saturday first round of a 2 round gross event at my club. Played pretty well the whole day except for a rather large brain fade of the 10th which left me with a quad on a hole I usually play very well. Finished the round with a 6 over round with a tie for the lead.

 

Went out again Today, Sunday, for 9 holes in the lazy afternoon sun. Had just bought myself some ecco golf streets and wanted to try them out and didn't really have much else to do. Went around with my headphones on and managed a very solid 2 under around the front 9 with 8/9 fairways hit, 8/9 greens hit with 15 putts. Very happy with the result and gives me a much needed boost in confidence going into the second round.

After six years of playing, I got my first hole in one yesterday! Pretty crazy feeling to see the ball drop from the tee box. It was a slight downhill par 3 from 150 yards, got it done with a 9 iron!

My wife and I played Saturday in a company tournament with one of my old bosses and his wife. We had no chance but it was fun anyway. Finished middle of the pack in a "shamble".

 

A shamble is where all team members tee off and the best lie of the four tee shots is selected (minimum of 3 drives per players). All players move their balls to the best lie. From this point, the hole is played out at as individual stroke play, with all members of the team playing their own ball into the hole. Score is 2 balls from 2 separate players, 1 gross and 1 net, per hole. Players use their full handicap for the net score. The winning team is the team with the lowest total score of gross and net balls for all holes (par is 144).

 

My boss (18 HCP) finally got his third drive used with 2 holes to go. He was so worried that he couldn't hit one straight!

I did not play very well this weekend.  I shot 78 the first day of a tournament with a nine and a 7 that were both on par 5s which is unacceptable, but I did have 4 birdies which were on 6, 10, 16, and 17, and then I three putted 1 and 18 for bogey.

 

The next day was a disaster.  I started out really strong, and then just lost my concentration on a 4 iron that went into the water that is barely in play.  I drained a bunch of putts over ten feet, but I missed a bunch of short putts.  

 

I feel like I am so close.  It is always just one or two big misses that derail my whole round.  I finished 7 out of 16 because it was a fairly hard course.

Holy crap what a bad weekend. 84, 78. Birdied 17 and 18 for that 78. Couldn't buy a putt all weekend. The two birdies were 3 ft and a 6 inch birdie putts. Blech.

Didn't post this earlier, so I thought I would pop in here and let you guys know how I've been playing. 

 

I've had a caddy for the past month and am kinda sad to see him back at the range.  Dan's sprained knee has been given the go ahead to start golfing with the brace on, so I think I've lost my caddy.  Last week we shaved 5 strokes off my game.  With the combination of using TibaPutt to help shorten my take back and give me a more confident stroke, and some wedge work, I think I should be easily be shooting 95.  Of course, I need to take myself back to a full size course to test it out but I'm making great progress.

 

Oh and Thanks Danno, you can caddy for me any day!

Played a scramble that I sponsored through my company today and it was just a joy.  First off I was forced to take someone that is just not at the level of a player that normally would make the cut with some of the guys I have in the office, but being the nice guy that I am I did not really care.  Second was that one of the guys in the foursome bailed on my at 7 AM this morning since he decided that he did not want to drive the 40 minutes to the course.  Third was that one of the guys that was playing showed up over an hour late which is a mortal sin for me when it comes to commitments.  Needless to say by the time that I hit the course I had steam coming out of my ears which I somehow channelled into my game.  Had to play five holes as a twosome until our third arrived so I played two balls and made three birdies and two pars while my partner hit two tee balls dead right into a house, shanked a 5 iron into a parking lot and in general made me think that I could probably play four balls as a single and make the day a bit easier on me.  Six holes in I got some relief and at least had one other player that was capable of getting off the tee box ( and I am not talking about with driver, literally just off the tee box would have been a plus).  We went on to make 7 birdies and an eagle to finish at 60 and win by three shots.  I won the long drive and was extremely happy with how the Alpha performed for its first round in the bag.  Tournament season is winding down for me and I am playing a partners event this weekend and the NY Rangers Golf Classic on Tuesday then calling it a season.

I shot a 43/44, 87 yesterday at The Babe Zaharias GC......That in itself is not great as I should be in the low 80's on this course. HOWEVER, I had one perfect hole.the 312 yd Par 4 # 1......Drive was right side of fairway about 200-205 yds.  Approach shot was about 100 yards so I took my 9 iron (115 yds) as the green was way higher than my ball location. I went straight at the back pin, the ball hit about 3 feet directly in front and hopped to about 4 feet above the hole.  Trickled the birdie putt gently to the hole.  Won $30 for the skin.

I shot a 3 over 39 yesterday in a high school match, and then for next tuesday's match qualifier, I shot one under on a run down executive course that we practice at, so I will be playing number one for our next match of the season.  I started off badly with a missed 4 footer for par on two, and then a 3 putt on three, but then I birdied the long par 3 6th, and then I burned the edge for a hole in one on a 285 yard par 4 on 8 (I ended up birdieing because it rolled to the back fringe), and then I birdied nine after crushing a drive 290 with a 5 yard fade to play the dogleg perfectly.  It was fun.  I have found my driver again!

Work has been killing me recently, so I haven't gotten out to play since Barbajo visited. (Good round, great guy).

 

Taking my wife out to play Eagle Trace today. It's supposed to be one of the really nice courses in the area, so I have high hopes. $45 on golfnow, so I couldn't pass it up.

 

On a side note, I am re-teaching my wife to play, since she has been away from the game for about 10 years. I got her a putter and a decent wedge. Chipping and putting is all we've been doing for the last 2 months. Gonna get her striking the ball solidly and move up to longer clubs slowly. She's already shown a ton of improvement. By this time next year, she'll break 90!
