How'd you play?

38/39/77 (+5)

Although I didn't hit every fairway (8), driver was working. Each, a solid shot with misses not being far off.

11 greens, 34 putts, 2 birds.

Played the TM Tour Response (previous version) for the first time in a long while. Performed very well for me across the board. I've had issues with it in the past wrt performance in the wind but today was mostly calm and for those days, it suits me.

First round of the week started off great but then came to a grinding halt on the back nine. Weather was in 60’s at 7:40 tee time and 2armed up nicely to mid 80’s.  Shot a 42/46:90 - CH 14 = 76 less Par 72 = +4….FIR 10/14 for 71% GIR 1/18 for 11% with 30 putts. I birdied the par 4 #2 hole and go5 a skin for it.

As bad as the driver felt Saturday, it was the complete opposite last night. Every drive was center of the face (or close to it) and all but two ended up on my start line and faded back in as intended, and only one of the push-fades left me with no shot at the green. Distances were 264, 252, 285, 258, 255, 282, 284. Unfortunately, with our league course, that meant I had a fair number of partial wedges for second shots. Distance control with them SUCKED. I missed the green twice from 30-50 yards (one short, one long)🤦‍♂️. Putting was only OK, but I'm not too concerned. The greens were punched a couple weeks ago and they were bumpier last night than just after they did it. I ended up with a +6 42 which is right on my league handicap.

More than likely, this was it for the year for me. It was good to end on a relatively high note. See y'all next spring!

Another beautiful day out. Played 9 and had my best score ever on the hardest hole on the course. Its the third hole and It’s a long narrow dogleg left par 5 with trees on the right and water on the left that fronts the green. I hit my driver through the dogleg into wet rough. The rough sort of ate up my second shot and left me once again in the wet rough with 174 yards to the hole. I played it safe with a 6 iron that landed safely short of the green. I hit my 54 degree wedge well to 12 feet from 30 yards and 2 putted for a bogey. For me, anytime I play this hole without losing a ball is a great result. The next hole was my ball finder hole. Par 4, pulled my drive left of the fairway into the rough. My second shot from the rough saw the rough grab my club and open the face and my shot flew right and ended up in some bushes. In my search for my Kirkland Signature which I never found, I did find a number Titleist balls, a Pro 1, a Pro V1x, an AVX and a TruFeel. 😂 I finished the round bogey, bogey and a score of 53.

Well, back to muni reality after getting to play that Hokuala on vacation.  Hopped out on the par 3 18 hole near me this morning after dropping my daughter off at school.  +8 over 18 holes that easily could have been lower.  I've been putting a lot of pressure on myself to improve lately (even on vacation) and I decided to just go out and enjoy it today -- which I should do more often.  I didn't spend a ton of time overthinking things, just trusted myself.  That said, I think all that pressure and attention to detail has made things a little more automatic for me in real time.  In other words, I think I may have finally set some good habits into my pre-shot routine so that it has the intended effect of calming my mind instead of overthinking everything. 

I may not post much here over the next month.  Following Rustic Canyon next week I'm going to take the month off and give myself a little 'off season' to focus on a swing adjustment I want to make that I think is really going to help my consistency and tip me over the edge into single digits.

First round with the TSr2 today, and shot a 73. 
they punched and sanded the greens yesterday, so that made putting an adventure- 

the driver is great- super forgiving, and still as long as the Mavrics good hits, and way better on bad hits. Way better- I didn’t really strike the ball super crispy, but the driver was still long and in the fairway all day- makes the game much easier on those days where you’re not on top of it…

Oh what a thrill to be a long knocker for a day.  Last Sunday, with hard and dry fairways and strong wind at my back, I hit a drive on our short Par 5 #9 that was 101 yards from the flag, which I estimated at approximately 344 yards.  The last 75 yards of the drive was down hill, so everything worked in my favor.  This is the farthest I have ever driven the ball on this hole and this is coming from a 63 year old with a 95 mph driver swing speed.  I had another 300+ drive on a down wind Par 4.  We received some much needed rain this week, so I will be back to my average length drives this weekend.

Man, been a while since I've been back on this forum.

 

After a really long year at my old employer, with zero golf during that time, I made a move this summer and am finally making my way back to the game.  It honestly feels so good to have it back in my life.  Hasn't been a good summer score-wise, but what do you expect.  I live in NYC and didn't play for a year.  At the end of the day, the past two months since i changed roles i've played some amazing courses and am just happy to be along for the ride.  

 

Couple of pics from my round at Liberty National - boss took me a few weeks ago.  It's definitely unapologetically modern, but still beautiful.  Cheers.

6:30 A.M. Thursday morning, I’m off to the club to play. I zip onto the interstate to hop off the next exit then straight to Plantation Palms.  Uh oh! As I got on the interstate for my 4 mile jaunt to the next exit, I noticed all had come to a halt. Fast forward 5 hours later as I exit the interstate to find a restroom quickly….guess I missed my game.  Oh well, I turned around and came home. So I booked a time this morning to make up for missing Thursday.  Shot a 42/43:85 FIR 11/14 79% GIR 6/18 33% with 31 putts. I also had an Up & Down of 43%.

Played Timberline today, shot a 44/34 78 (par 71). First time I have ever been under par on a 9!! Had 3 birdies. Just changed out my driver head so I am getting used to it, and I was not hitting it well, lot of spin on it. However my irons were very good along with my short game. Even came oh so close to an ace! 22CA0A11-5E97-458E-B416-7BEFE3DA425E.jpeg.6b6a1c3f6a3cf4989376efbd739d86e3.jpegEB0B9B14-C062-45B3-A814-98EE7FB50DD3.jpeg.bc313c7e8158ceb83c3e3a0e965f029b.jpegC16A3351-95A7-4B3A-BBFE-36E13B98C972.png.4d3aacbafb66ff8135262cb0cc554f02.png

Finally got to play Granite Falls South the other day.  I've played the other three courses since we got here but GFS was just closing for the winter overseed when we arrived.  It was great and to be brutally honest, I'd have a hard time choosing a favorite course at this point.  They all are quite challenging and each its unique attributes. 

I shot a 39/44 and blew the back up on the "island green" 17th hole mostly because I was undecided on my tee shot.  It's a 3w or 5w at most off the tee on the short par 4.  I thought about just hitting a 4i to completely take the water out of play but decided on the 3w and hit the worst shot of the round.  Didn't rinse it but got in the huge waste trap and behind an oleander.  Tried a hero shot and rinsed it, then parked #4 into the trap and spent another in the trap 😒.

Oh well, I'm getting a second go at this track tomorrow with a guy we met while looking at a queen bed he had listed.  We didn't buy the bed but we started talking golf and he asked if I wanted to hook up for a round... ummm, let me think about that for a picosecond... yes 😆.

Not a good day.

What was supposed to be a slightly overcast morning with temps going up to 70, was 57, windy and damp. Then the rain came. 🙄

I made par on a very tough opening hole, then 4putted (3 from 4 feet) for a 7 on #2. It was all downhill from there. I couldn’t wait to get to the turn, get a rain check and go home. I sleepwalked to a tidy 51, and to be honest, I really didn’t care. I was wearing shorts and a shortsleeved windbreaker, and I was freezing.

Got in the car with a cup of hot chocolate, put the heater on for the first time in over 6 months and drove home.

Well I've been quiet for a while. This was the first time I've touched my clubs in over 2 months. So I had no expectations heading right to the course with no practice. Of course I watch of a lot of online tutorial videos since I haven't been able to play. It could be good I forget some bad habits or it could be bad I have some of these video tips in my head. One I took to the course was a a tip for consistent ball position at setup.

I played my home track (69.7/119) from the gold tees which plays a little under 6400 yds. It's a deceiving course even though there isn't much sand, the course is well protected by sawgrass. Greens are well protected on both sides and long. So if you're not in play, it's easy to rack up the strokes.

.Shot 45/42 tying my personal best 87 with only one triple, 2 doubles, 8 bogeys and 7 pars/GIRs. That was with 6 penalties and even missed a couple 3-5 foot birdie putts. I will say I hit a lot more pure shots than bad shots with woods/irons.

Hit more fades on the range as I implemented my new setup routine (usually more draw biased). Get out on the course, aim to play the fade and wind up hitting the draw. Setup more anticipating my draw and hit the fade. So played a lot on the edge of the fairways/rough. Hit a few 280 bombs with best drive hitting 300 yds (flat course not downhill) but 4 of my penalties were off the tee having no good sense of what ball flight I'd hit. Only missed 1 par 3 green which is a PB. My biggest struggle was wedges 50-100yd out, was thinking too much about setup and the ball position most often catching it thin in this range. Chipping recovery was on fire having 3 chips stopping within a foot of the hole for a one putt (33 putts total). So overall had fun and really happy with the outcome after the 2 month hiatus!! I just hope it's not another few months before I can get out again.
