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

Honestly didn’t feel like I hit it super well today. Just knocked it around and shot a 78...golf is weird.

When I was learning I threw several balls out of the bunker up on the green - and it felt great to get there. I thought it was fun to be out on the course no matter how I played. It was the good players who made it sound like I shouldn't be having fun. Sounds like your daughter enjoys sharing your time and pastime. Embrace that part of it and she'll keep coming back just to do something fun with you.

I read somewhere golf rules for beginners and it included things like tossing your ball back on to the fairway, improving your lie, and throwing the ball out of the sand.

My wife says she has a "No sand policy".  But she does pretty well getting out of it.

Big day tomorrow fellas.

I'm playing the second round of our Members League Championship. After we're done tomorrow, they'll cut the original field of the year's top 52 money winners to 20. The top 10 in Gross and Net advance to next Tuesday when we reset and play it off for the Gross and Net Championships.

I'm sitting okay, just inside the top 10 in both categories (you can only qualify in one) but I need a good round to advance. I'm not good enough to beat the top 5 or 6 guys in gross over two rounds, and the B flight guys, who are included in the field for this one flight event get a lot more strokes than me, so the net won't be easy either. That said, if I play well I should advance. If I don't it's on me... no excuses.

I like that we're playing what I think is the toughest of our 4 courses, so there should be quite a shake up tomorrow, and the guys who advance will have earned a chance for our most prestigious title next week.

I want that Net title bad LOL

Congrats on how you've played so far. Good Luck tomorrow - pulling for you!

I played bad golf today. By score, it was the second worst round of the year, but considering the worst was at Catawba Island (a strange course), this felt worse to me. I took a half-day vacation and met @MattF at Windmill Lakes. It already plays fairly long, but when you are hitting tee balls as poorly as I did today, It can be a beast. Ended up shooting 49/47 (par 70) with 6 (!!!!!!) penalties. Ugh. Easily the best shot of the day was trying Matt's Sub70 3W. I had to manually add it in Arccos, but it says it was about a 260 yard 3W (wind was crossing with a bit of help).

That was an absolute beast of a shot...may be worth getting an @GolfSub70 3 wood demo.

As for me, shot an 87 40/47. I'm more mad about the 47 than the entire score. Driver was a bit iffy, but the little tweak to my setup worked more often than not, allowing me to actually hit off the short grass more than normal. Irons continue to improve with the same tweak.

I'm hesitant to say it, but I may have figured out my timing issues off the tee, but the damage had already been done tonight. Besides that, Arccos stats show the best SG approach I've had since I've had the sensors.

Screenshot_20201013-194757.jpg.e69474eac71c6e4c7e7547954a010a78.jpg

Putting was kind of lame, but the greens were punched this week, so I'm not bothered by it too much, except I had two 10 to 15-ish foot birdie putts that were tracking nicely only to wobble to the side in the last few feet. I don't have a ton of confidence in a 5i right now, but I've learned that choking down about an inch on my 4h gives me that distance comfortably and I had two great shots doing that tonight, so that sort of addresses that gap in my bag, but may need to find a permanent solution.

I ended up +9 with another 3 penalties (all off the tee, of course) :barf: but won a skin with a par on the hardest hole on this 9. That makes three weeks in a row! Yes, I'm shocked too.

Ha!   Last nine holes for the league today, crashed and burned!!!

Last hole had a healthy crosswind into us from the left out of the SW, hit this in to out open face thing that went 100 yds offline, nearly wiped out a foursome on another fairway, yelled fore, should have yelled eight, had 170 to the green on my hole, had this funky downhill/ball above feet lie so much that I had to choke a 5 iron to the steel.  Didn't execute that one so good as I chunked it really bad and it went about 20 yds.

WInd now dead into my face, stomped over to ball pulled 7 iron and whacked it Happy Gilmore style, got it on front of edge of green about 50 ft. short of hole, did the smack and spit putt to about 3 ft. and they gave the bogey putt since that putt meant nothing to anybody, anywhere, even my mother would have let it go.

3 pars, 6 bogeys, nothing else, the sun has set on another year.   

I don't have a handicap but I am stuck at the "urinate" level, (sound it out).   Wild tees shots, mediocre chipping/pitching, less than clutch putting.   Those guys who score better than me hit the tee ball in the fairway, get the approach shot near or on, but get it up and in.  They make the putts.     It sounds simple, but it really is a huge leap.

The body is failing, muscles ache, balance is bad, flexibility and strength need to be improved.    The next season starts in six months.

Anybody know a good golf-related fitness trainer in Metro Detroit?

Oh, what an up and down day!  Mixed bag of junk, mainly.  Had 4 double bogeys, one of which was a 4 putt on a par 3.  Another 3 putt on a different hole.  Putting stroke wasn't bad, but I had issues with burning the edge and putting too far beyond the hole.  Mixed in 3 birdies.  Limped in with an 81.

I know that limp.  The birdies are good, keep those in your kitchen, kick everything else out.
