41/40

6/14 FiR

5/18 GiR

31 putts

Just when I thought I had it figured out with the iron game, golf humbled me. It wasn't as bad as it looked, mostly coming up short because of the head winds and my stubbornness to club up twice. Sometimes hitting a 6i at a flag that's 150y just seems wrong, but there were some stiff winds and I should've just done it.

Missed a lot of what I would call makeable putts, and a double bogey from 120y away in the fairway cost me a round in the 70s. 

Driver was solid again, starting to groove with this Motote X

Cold, damp, and slow play today.  Results were terrible...struck the ball okay, but the cold temperatures made club selection awkward and unpredictable and my putting was close but no cigar all day.  Shot an 85.  Shot of the day was taking a drop after putting 2nd ball into the drink and, with 50 yards to the pin, hit a great 52* wedge to 6 inches to save bogey.  Supposed to pour rain tomorrow, so probably won't be playing.

I played the Parklands course at Legends yesterday.

We played the whites at 6500 yards two days after getting 3 inches of rain because I have friends from Long Island visiting, and they wouldn't buy into the 'ball not traveling thing down here like it does back home" thing the starter and I tried to warn them about. It was a long, hard day on a wet, sloppy course (cart path only), but I managed to get in with an 88. Incredibly frustrating day with my irons though, as my gremlins reappeared and I missed almost every green short and left. The only good thing about all the poor iron play I've had recently is my short game keeps getting better and better. I hit a lot of great wedges that gave me a par or an easy two putt bogey. The problem is I'm not going to score the way I should doing that, I need to hit some greens... 

As for my friends? I think they learned there lesson. One shot a 90, the other two struggled to break 100. We're playing the Norman Course at Barefoot at 1230 today, and they've agreed to play the Whites at 6100. LOL

Enjoy the Masters today if you're not out there playing....

Sunny, 55º but the wind is still blowing but only 15-20 mph.  Headed to the course, but it was packed and very slow play.  Played the first two holes at even par, then left... too much standing around.

We cancelled today....sloppy conditions from rain last night, still raining and expected to drizzle/rain off and on all day.  Recent lock-down guidance issued by our governor (Oregon) has resulted in the cancellation of our 3-man Turkey Tournament scheduled for Friday.  Our golf courses will remain open, limited one person per cart (unless family), dining and clubhouse restricted for take-out only, etc.  Lockdown scheduled for 2 weeks, but given the rate of cases in this county, it will likely last longer.

Feeling pretty down after my round today. Didn’t do anything well, and felt like i forgot how to hit a pitch and chip shot. And i injured my right lat early on in the round, probably made my round worse.

only thing that was ok was putting with my new wristlock style.

overall, feeling pretty discouraged to be honest

Man that was me last week. I feel your pain. It will get better. We’re you incorporating new things from your lessons? That was probably it.

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 😩

Good luck with the surgery, and I hope you have a speedy recovery.

We have had a mask mandate since late June and social distancing since March.  Cases go up because more people are getting tested.  Meanwhile my 90-year old dad has been locked down since March, and I can't visit.

That sucks but I wouldn’t call Inslee an idiot. At least we will still have golf in the NW. Even great leaders around the world are struggling to control this. I’d still meet for around as I walk 🙂

... Not true but ignore cases and just focus on hospitalizations. They are at an all time high and hospitals are soon to be over run. Some are already and it is going to get worse. Much worse. That doesn't happen because of more people getting tests. I really feel for First Responders that are bearing the brunt of peoples selfishness. If everyone just did their part by wearing masks, social distancing and not taking part in Super Spreader events, we would not be where we are now. Sorry about your Dad, that sucks.

... We are very lucky to love one of the few things that is safe to do when taking proper precautions during this pandemic. I drive to the course alone and call the pro shop to pay for my round. I meet 3 strangers on the 1st tee and we keep 10 feet apart the entire round while being outdoors. Flags are left in with a plastic donut so no need to touch anything but your own clubs and golf ball. At the end of 18 a happy wave to playing companions and back to the car for the trip home. Of corse if you choose to take a cart there are some dangers but they do a pretty good job of sanitizing after every use and most courses around here allow 1 rider per cart unless sharing it with a member of your household.

Snuck in a final nine hole round before surgery at a local par 3 today, and had the best playing partner ever! The future Mrs. played her first ever round of golf with me, it was absolutely the best day of golf I’ve ever had! Couldn’t even tell you the score, but she had a blast and wants to play again so I’m calling it a win.

That's awesome @jddaigneault! Some of the best times I've had on the golf course is when my wife comes along for the ride. I find it a great way to enjoy two things in life that I love. Looks like you've got a keeper.
