Golf is a funny game... in a lotta ways but in my case (for this week, anyway 🤷‍♂️) there's an improvement in one area of your game yet at the same time other aspects of your game seem to backslide...
..and I know you golfers on here know what I'm talking about!!

People who've read thru or commented on my posts in this thread (thk u!!) know I've been struggling with .. and working on .. my long game / ball striking; been having trouble with tee shots and second shots. Short game and putting has really improved this year, and while I still have a loooong ways to go to mount a challenge to a club pro, I've been getting better at what I call "almost" up & downs ... ie. down in three from near to and around the green.

So.. played 18 at the beginning of this week (and then the next morning wrenched my lower back and had to pass on a meet-up/round with @Chip Strokes .. new date TBA!) and strangely enough had 12 / 14 "playable" (emphasized) tee shots = they were not all good shots, and not all in the fairway, but were in generally the right direction and near the fairway / not in trouble where I could make a second shot (and not a punch-out, which is another skill that's improved this year!). The two other tee shots - one was good contact but pulled way left to the OB fence and then lost; other one I totally chunked/skyed/popped-up to nowhere (on a long Par5...).

Didn't keep an exact count of second shots but about 2/3s were also "playable", eg. not all "good" golf shots but at least advanced the ball towards the hole into a decent enough position. 

Now.. otoh, my "BAS" Bunker Avoidance Strategy which has been working pretty well this year fell apart as I put myself into bunkers three times and proceeded to double-chunk my way out of two of those. On top of that I 2-chipped twice 😞 and 3-putted twice during each 9 😞 😞 as my speed control continues to elude me (well.. more than usual...).

On two holes (a Par 5 and the closing Par 4) I decided to combine those short game talents together to yield me an additional +5 shots on each to finish for two Triples - and each of these were after consecutive good (full swing) shots that put me in front of or next to the green! Ugh. (..and we're not gonna talk about the major blow-up hole nor the Par 3s here today)

Anyway..
I did manage 11 bogeys (nothing better this round) and while not my best performance this season was actually encouraging as now I know the clear path for me, for making more on-course improvement, is really ... wait for it .. waaayiiit .. earth-shattering revelation coming 😉 ... limiting my mistakes!

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

In what could be the last round of the year, I got around ok considering the conditions. We've had two days of rain + leaves + fog on the first 5 holes. I lost 4 balls on those first holes due to who knows what, then one more over the rest of the round. No birdies, 1 double for a 42-39 81. I just tried to enjoy the day and not being at work.

The course I played, Seneca, was taken over by the Cleveland Metroparks from the city about 6 years ago. They been renovating the course and this year announced they were complete. First time playing since the transition and the course is so much nicer than it was. I will be back, and it's central for MGS meetups!

+3 (39)

4/7 FiR

5/9 GiR

17 putts

Felt good to get out after skipping last week for wedding prep. I'm really liking the TP5 due to it spinning a little less than the BXS. Don't ever have to worry about ripping it back or getting hung up in the wind, and the soft feel is exactly what I look for in a cover. Hit a decent amount of greens which was nice, but couldn't make a putt - everything was kinda soggy from the rain these past 3 days. Can't wait to get the zipcores on the course, my wedge distance control is coming back nicely.

Played this morning at Taylor meadows.

The course was great, my game, not so much, shot 102, still it was a great time.

Hey @tony@CIC I had two lefties with me this morning. 

Both Chris and Patrick are lefties, we had a blast.

That's the icing on the cake. My personal reference point is heavily trafficked LA / OC municipal courses and I don't think it can be understated how much better golf is when the pace of play issue is removed from the equation.

That's the icing on the cake. My personal reference point is heavily trafficked LA / OC municipal courses and I don't think it can be understated how much better golf is when the pace of play issue is removed from the equation.

We still play in a good pace, we finished in 3 1/2 hours, but just the fact that there was no one else around, was great.

The Cobra driver performed very well again, of course it is mandatory for me to hit a couple bad shots, but that was me, not the club.

The new Honma also performed well, I only regret trying to use from the deep rough, but the first shot of the tee on 2, went 226 yards, it sounded awesome, I should have used more off the tee.

But the best club today was the putter, I got sloppy on a few holes and those will count against it, but I felt that the ball rolled really well and I was striking down my intended line, as well as I did not feel nervous over any thing that was a 3 foot or less.

... Played what might be my final round in Chicago yesterday and there was good news and bad news. Good news is the temps hit 76* so it was very pleasant and enjoyable. The bad news is we had between 2-4" of rain over night and the course was saturated. CPO. My remote cart was making a rooster tail the entire round. Tee shots plugged where they landed, many times with an accompanying splash. Normally playing 6497 from the Blue tees I decided to move up a tee box and play the course from the 6054 White tees. Kinda crazy but I still had longer second shots on several holes. But quite literally every single drive in the fairway plugged. 

... I just have not been able to shoot under par for a month or so with 5 rounds right on 72. Last 3 times I had "makable" birdie puts on 18 from around 6-7 feet but pin placements have been brutal and again I had a slight downhill putt that broke hard left to right and an aggressive birdie attempt would leave me an equal length come back putt. WTF might as well give it a go with temps in the 40's for the next 10 days and just missed on the low side leaving a 6 footer straight back up the hit I made for another 72. 2 birdies and 2 bogies but I did save 2 holes. Hit a big pull into some trees off the tee on a par 5 that aren't really in play, took a drop and still had to play over trees leaving me 110 to the pin. Hit a nice pw out of the rough but the wind pulled it 20 feet to the right of the hole. Made the putt to save par. Whew. This is a links style course so only 1 tree really comes into play and it blocks about 60% off the fairway with water left and OB right. Several options but since I was playing the White tees I decided to just go over this towering Oak, but I just caught the very top and it bounced back toward the tee. Had to punch a 5 iron under the limbs leaving me 130 and hit a knockdown 8 iron to about 10 feet and again made the putt to save par. Double whew. 

... Rest of the round was pretty boring with 12 routine pars hitting fairways and greens but not having any real makable birdies. I enjoy boring golf as long as it is for par but everyone loves a shot at birdie don't they? So I left the course feeling good and bad at the same time, which should be the definition of golf "Golf: hitting a ball between 65-100 times, making it fall into 18 separate small holes and leaving you with both a good and bad feeling after counting your strokes at the end of the round. If you play the 18th hole well you can't wait to get back and engrain your good play. If you play the 18th hole poorly you can't wait to get back and improve your poor play " 🤪

Hate to hear that this may be your last round for the year. Hopefully, you have a trip planned to warmer weather so you will be able to get some golf in. I am currently down in the panhandle of Florida and it has been really hot and humid. "Typical Florida Weather" Planning on coming back in 3 weeks and hoping it will be cooler. Not to gripe, but the cost of golf in this area is ridiculous! Morning rounds are $100 to $150 bucks, I am not paying that for these courses. I did play twice this week and payed around $80 for range balls and golf. 

I love reading your post, so don't stop keeping us informed on your golf game and any new toys you purchase.

That’s funny. I asked because I had played there a few times when there was a Trade Show at Pheasant Run Resort if you can call it that. Some Chicago area guys ran it.
Was more of a hit, giggle and guzzle event.
