First winter round in AZ on Tuesday at Las Barancas. 38/42 with 27 putts... only 12 on the front!!  We play a fewest putts bet for a quarter and Mick said he's pretty sure that's a record for our groups.  The G410's felt awesome and had me thinking about why I'm considering a bag fitting.  I'm sure some rounds are forthcoming that will have me wondering why I haven't done so already, but wow, they sure felt and performed well Tuesday. 

Maybe these iron heads reshafted with composite?  Perhaps a reshaft on the G410P driver? I'd love for it to be a challenge to the fitter prying my fingers off the current gamers 🙂.

Playing Desert Hills today and Mesa Del Sol Saturday.  The courses are in really good shape considering the scorching summer they had here. I was expecting much drier and firmer conditions.  Many of the courses have invested heavily in reclaimed/recycled water systems and they are no doubt getting lots more mileage/drop.

... 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

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.

Thanks everyone!

I’m getting spine surgery Monday, and got out for a final 18 hole round yesterday. Managed an 86, with a few too many doubles. Next 18 hole round...at least six weeks away 😩

First day walking with my new Caddy tee 3 wheeler, I shot 38/48:86. As you can see from the score, I ran out of gas on #14 and struggled thru 18....but I made it. Temps stayed in mid 70’s. BTW, I nailed the flagstick from 92 yards on #17.

My plan is to walk on Fridays.

Good job!!  The more you do it, the easier it gets.

I didn't walk much this year because my walking group on Mondays didn't make it out much due to COVID.  I've been walking 9-holes a couple of times a week, and I notice fatigue climbing up the hill to the #9 tee.  I will be walking more as it gets colder because I stay warmer than riding in a cart, even with a cover on it.

Friday Bacon Boyz Exec this morning.
70*, 97% humidity, foggy & 2 days after ETA blew thru so Cart Path Only. WET & SLOPPY !!
I played horrible, Elan Musk couldn’t help me get the ball in the air, nothing worked every club wasn’t working. Only item that worked was Divot Repair Tool to fix one of my skulls into the green.
Skipped breakfast SWMBO needed help w a very important project .
TSI2 was not that bad but not great, no club can fix bad mechanics. Range tomorrow morning, hope it’s a dryer.

Our rain came through very early in the morning (4am).  It was nice until about 8am (temp in the 50's), then the wind started blowing (supposed to be 50 mph gusts, but only 44 mph so far).  I had to go into town; drove by the golf course.  The usual gangsome was on #14 (4 guys) and a single behind them (Daniel, I play with him occasionally).  From the road I can see most of the back nine... no other players.

Our winds weren't that bad, but it rained off and on all day, with a few periods of sunshine.  Glad we didn't play.  I'm sure we had our share of die-hards out there pounding the ball in the drizzle.

Shot 41/43:84 with 3 Birdies of which one was the #1 handicap hole. Weather was gorgeous, mid to upper 70’s. Got paid for one birdie, #13 par 5.

Brrrr! 🥶 Had some sunny weather that pushed temps up just past 40 after a hard frost last night. Quite the difference from the 65 degree day I had for my rounds Tuesday.

Went back to the "goat track" and played another practice round of 14 holes. Played three or more balls on the first 11, and then played the final three holes "for real."

Had a lot of fun, made several birdies, lots of pars and don't think I doubled any of the balls I played. Still lots of things to work on, but I hit some really good shots and some really bad ones. About normal for me. 

I think next week officially starts the "offseason" and a move to the heated range.

EDIT - Not that it matters, but I was +1 over the final three "real" holes. Parred the par 4, bogied the par 3 after missing my 12 inch tap-in (dumb), and parred the par 5. Had decent looks at birdies on the first two holes and didn't miss by much. Still loving the L.A.B. DF 2.1.

Had one of my better rounds today. Felt like I did not really hit any bad shots, driving, irons, wedges, chipping, putting. There was some unfortunate breaks but for the most part the game was solid.. Specially today when the wind was steady at 15-20mph..putting was the hardest.

Now I have to remember my this feeling going forward.

My wife talked me into playing today; not sure why since she can't swing a club yet until the stitches come out.  Cold... 43º with a 20-30 mph wind.  She wanted to walk, so I got stuck with the cart; cold just sitting there.  She drove starting on the back nine and I walked on most holes.  

Shot 85.  Only 2 GIR from 9/13 fairways hit, but I only had 28 putts.  Unfortunately, most of the one-putts were for bogey.  The first green I hit in regulation was the par 4 #14 for a tap-in birdie.  I followed that up with a pushed 6i into the bunker on the par 3 #15, but got a sandy par.

43/41 at Mesa Del Sol today. Absolutely no love from the putter and at least half dozen dead at the flag but short on short iron/wedge shots... so frustrating 🤬.
