Bacon Boyz 9 this morning, Boyz will be Boyz!!
One takeaway from this morning was TSI2 driver even without the correct heel weight is still Freakin long!! Over 200+ yards on the 2 Par 4’s. This sucker is long. 1st shot probably 215.
After golf off to breakfast and solve the worlds problems with not exactly health food.
Man that driver is long....

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

My wife and I played Summerfield Crossing in Riverview, Fl. today. A bit pricey for what it was ($89. including tax). Overall the course was ok,  fairly narrow, lots of trees and LOTS of water. Didn't see any alligators - I've become very good at spotting them. Lost 4 balls on the front and 1 on the back. Fortunately my wife had just reloaded her bag so I could borrow some. Even though I lost 5 balls, I still ended up with an 89 and she carded a 97.

Some FL courses try to take advantage of winter rates.
We spotted a 8’-10’ footer this morning, couldn’t get close for pic.

$89... that's for both of you, right?

Yup for two of us. It was a course we wanted to try out but ended up not as nice as the courses around the corner from us that are cheaper. Live and learn.

Hard to believe I was able to play a round on December 5th in RI, but we had a great day at Pawtucket Country Club; long and straight was the play today. Wind picked up and there were some *long* approaches into a number of par 4's. 
Was ecstatic to be able to play and the course was in great shape!

Good luck.  We canceled plans for Indio this year because of Covid and the restrictions in place in Ca.  

I was thinking the same thing....$89 for 2 to play golf isn't too bad (of course, if it's a goat ranch, maybe it is).

Hah!! *If* she had an instructor....

Her last lessons were last Summer when we were at a Nancy Lopez clinic. She's not necessarily a great athlete but does have this freaky great eye-hand coordination!!!

I'm not exactly famous for making smart decisions on the golf course, but today the blind squirrel found a nut!!!

Another cold, windy day (WTF is going on down here) so I decided to take the PXGs out of the bag and put my old set of Rogue X's in play for the first time in over a month to try and get a little lower flight and more distance. It worked like a charm.

We had 8 two man teams, $20 a man, paying $100 each for the front, back and total with a $20 CTP. My partner and I shot 32-34-66 and won the hole pot, and split $300. I was shocked we took the back with -2, but the wind got stronger as the day went on, and it turned out we won it by 2 shots

The Scotty Cameron I bought three weeks ago was money today. I made 3 birdie putts ranging from 15-25 feet... it was one of those fun days when the hole looks like a bucket.

Played 9, shot 39, two three-putts. Hit 7/9 greens. Driver today wasn’t good. I was hitting cross court, top spin forehands with it all day. Irons and wedges were good!

Played crappy but wasn’t playing to score. Wanted to try a better setup with my driver and unground my 3w and it just wasn’t working. If I wanted to play to score would have ditched it after the first hole. Also didn’t help I played with some very beginners. On the bright side one asked if I do tournaments so I must have looked good in his eyes. I did hit some great shots and would have been in the mid 40s if I didn’t try to work with the driver and just hit DI or 4i off the tee.

Starting to get my distance back with irons. Was previously going through some weird phase of hitting irons really short, like a 110 yard 7 iron. For reference, normally a PW is 115 to 130 yard club, depending on if I am taking a full swing or 3/4 swing. Finally got that distance back today, fixed my grip.
