How'd you play?

I played in an occasional mist this morning. It was only the second time in my life that I've been under par for 9, 1 under on the front (bogied 2, birdied 6 and 9). Slumped to a 40 on the (much harder) back 9, with 3 three putts, but birdied the last for 75, my best score in several years.

 

... First 2 of many. 👍  Reminds me of a time I got in a quick 9 after hitting balls at the range about 25 years ago when I was about a 12. I birdied the first 4 holes, chipping in my 4th shot on a par 5 after toping a 3 wood and missing the green. I hit a 7 iron to about 1 foot on #5. My hands were shaking so bad I had to stop my putting stroke twice and finally managed to knock it in to go 5 under through 5 holes. I was just sooooo far out of my comfort zone and on the next tee almost whiffed my driver on a par 5 hitting it off the toe and dribbling it about 25 yards into a creek that is not in play. Ended up taking a 10 and my under par score was gone in one hole. But I was quite comfortable on the next tee 🤣.  Being there is just part of the process, so congrats on the 75 and be sure to let us know when you break par!

I certainly missed it.... 🤔 it took another response to get it. Man I'm slow sometimes.

Tonight may have been the last league night based on extended forecast. I played ok (+8 with a 7 league handicap), but chipping let me down, which was predictable after the way I chipped Sunday. I learned a valuable lesson tonight. Apparently some of my issues off the tee are related to alignment - I was lined up way right of where I thought I was. After my friend pointed it out to me, I felt like I was aiming miles left, but started the ball on the left side and faded into the middle on the last three driving holes. Time to get to the range with some alignment sticks.

In other news, I won a skin for the 4th straight week with a birdie on a shortish par 5. Driver, 3w to just next to a greenside bunker, crappy chip and made the 25 footer. I have no idea what's up with winning 4 weeks in a row since I've never won a skin that I can recall, but I'll take it.

Struggled getting off the tee box all day but putted lights out.  Actually, on the front side, had 3 doubles (#1 had wedge issues, #3 had tree issues that went OB, #7 hit another tree on 2nd shot when I tried to just miss the tree and catch the left side of the green and then didn't have a shot to the green for the 3rd shot) to shoot 6 over, then on the back shot 1 over.  They were doing maintenance on #2 today, so we skipped it.  It's a handicap hole for me, so I added a bogey to my score to post an 80 for the day.

Wednesday morning group which is more serious of the groups I play in.
Light mist, cloudy, north breeze and most holes wet with cart path only how could this go wrong!
Shot 44 with never a sniff of a birdie. Driver was horrible, low screamers, irons not horrible and putting, did I mention greens were light sand cover, just swell.
Hybrid was working but if I was actually hitting a Tee shot I would not have needed a hybrid.
Enough whining 7:38 tee time Friday and do it again.

Played 18 holes without a double bogey!!!!!  It's been a long time since I've done that, despite scoring decently.  Anyway, shot a 77 today.  Only one birdie, but my partner and I won the game (We have a standard $5 game on Wednesday with our 4some, changing partners each week).

- 42/41 = 83 / 80 ESC (+18, Par 65)
- 4/11 FIR
- 2/18 GIR
- 28 Putts (10 2-putts, 8 1-putts)

New-to-me course, local muni that @ncwoz has trekked around a few times, I think. I was very surprised at the quality of course given the price ($16 to walk) and the length (~4,700 yards from the back tees).

I just can't get out of my own way lately, it seems. Came to No. 9 +3 and playing well. Long 234-yard par 3 into a 14 MPH wind, hit a low screaming driver that landed in the greenside bunker. Proceeded to take three shots getting out of said bunker to 35 yards past the green, hit back over the green into the bunker again, blasted out and two-putted for a nine. Yuck.

Tried to put that hole behind me but just couldn't get it going on the back. Struggled with a case of the hooks with the longer clubs, driver was garbage on the two holes I used it, and I just struggled finding the right distance on my approach shots. Also shanked a 7-iron out of bounds from the tee on the first par 3 on the back. Still don't know what happened there!

On the bright side, I putted extremely well. No birdies, but no three-putts and I really wasn't close having one.

I was very surprised at how well it's kept, and a nice little practice area too! Although short, it can be super narrow with deceptively tough greens. Especially at the price, I dig it!
