... Well I have had 4 months of mediocre, out right bad and some occasionally pretty decent golf but only 3 total at par or under out of about 100 rounds. That said, I think I am finally figuring out

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

Not a good day. Back up in triple digits for the first time all year. Just a muddy, wet day that would have gone better if I just put the damn driver away earlier than I did. I told my buddy to force me to put it away after 3 holes if I wasn't driving well. He didn't listen, so I blame him! Used my 3w off the tee on the back 9 and shot nearly 10 better. And that's with a blowup SEVEN on a par 3.

Really wasn't happy with some of the other golfers out there today. Lots of veering off into other holes and fairways, balls landing near us with no FORE shouts. I absolutely s-worded a tee shot on a par 5 when a walker just decided to come strolling out of the trees and walking towards us as I was starting my downswing. Come on, man.

Played an Executive 9 (short 1668 yd, Par 31) with an old friend yesterday, on what may be the last spring-like Fall day here in NY. My game was a mix of literally alternating good and bad holes - pars / "almost par" bogeys vs doubles / triples. 

This course presents challenges off the tee, and that's where I made the most mistakes... Only hit 3/9 tee shots "well" and not into trouble; with one of those good ones on an uphill 150-ish yard Par 3 where I ended up on the back fringe and not in or near the front-right bunker like I typically am on that hole.

OTOH wedges seemed to be working well as I hit the green or the fringe on 6/9 attempts; and had one very exciting for me bunker shot - had thinned my 9i on the closing Par 3 and ended up not only in the deep enough to be over my head front bunker but the front face was steep enough that sand had fallen away and there was several inches of vertical lip hanging down that my ball was less than a foot from - took a firm grip on the lob wedge and jammed it down into the sand right on the back edge of the ball .. ball popped up and out and headed straight ahead towards the pin ..whoo-hoo! 

And as a follow-up to that nice bunker shot... yep, I slightly pulled the uphill 7 footer and missed a great par save/up & down chance by an inch...

Putting generally was just ok; not terrible but not great. I expect to 3-putt a few times at this course as most greens are very contoured, and my approach game is nowhere near the point of hitting the "right quadrant" of a green, plus yesterday the greens were extra fast after a bunch of warm and dry weather. Had 2 x 3-putts and 1 (ouch) 4-putt; no 1-putts even though I had several opportunities.

Overall, even if it doesn't sound like it, I feel like I'm making progress in my game and .. after the tee shots .. actually played reasonably solidly. Hopefully there'll be some more mild days around here through the Fall and Winter!

Our regular Wednesday game today.  Started off less than stellar, shooting a 42 on the front.  Turned it around to close out with an 80.  No birdies, 2 doubles.  Greens were very fast today and the pins were in some really tough positions that led to missed putts rolling out far more than usual.  I didn't have near the issues that my playing partners did, thankfully.

Still working on my swing change and had some timing issues that led to some pretty ugly shots.  Also hit some really nice ones, though.   Met with my swing coach after the round and he pointed out a couple of things in my setup that he wanted me to focus on.

First day back in 3 months to the week!  My wife was off of work today for the Holiday (Happy Veteran's Day Vets!) and my daughter was taking a nap so I said why not try 9?

It started out mediocre as I would expect.  Par, Bogey, Double and then I settled in.  Finished -2 and missed a 6 and 8 footer for birdie on 8 & 9 to finish 37 +1.  

I feel so relieved that this herniated disc is not going to be the death of me and my game.  Hanging up the clubs for the season on a high note.

That's good playing.   Good to see you have recovered.  Bad backs are really tough.

Keep the motor running, swing easy, work on the game however you can in the winter.   Only five months to go.

Good luck with the surgery.  My wife had L5-S1 fusion 12 years ago, and it did wonders for her golf game.  So, we all expect low rounds next spring.

I expect that's what I'll eventually have to do because of my degenerative disc disease in that same spot.

Yeah, I have DDD in that spot as well.  Had an MRI about 15 years ago, but I manage the pain and have made swing changes to help.  Some days are fine, others... not so much.  

My wife had a congenital condition that became worse over the years.  She waited until the docs got good enough to not kill her on the operating table; so she said.
