Wife and I played another new (to us) course. It was only a one alligator day - a small one . I figure it's parents were hiding someplace watching me. Overall didn't play too badly given I haven't gotten the hang of Bermuda rough or greens. A 44 on the front and 43 on the back with only one water ball.

Whenever I visit my buddy in Florida, the biggest thing I can't get used to is seeing everyone putt from way off the green.  You can't get away with that in my area.

😲  Hey!  Wait a minute!!  I'm 73, and it was like 34 and I kept score.  Played 18 holes with another couple in a little over 3 hours.  OK, it you're testing... you get a pass!

Heck it was 45 degrees and I didn't keep score. But I was testing the Gamer golf ball today!😄 Can't spoil the surprise you'll have to wait for the official testing thread to be created.

Today was one of those Funny days... some haha Funny, some not.

My wife and I had a tee time at 9:46 with another couple, but the course had an hour frost delay.  We decided to leave the house around our tee time expecting to arrive with plenty of time to warm up.  At 9:30 the other couple called and they were there and the course was open!!  We scrambled!  Got there; got carted up; met them at the clubhouse and headed for the first tee... no warmup.  Oh yeah, foggy, 34º with a breeze out of the north.

I did swing my Skilz Gold Flex 10 times right handed and 10 times left handed, then grabbed my driver.  I had NO birdies; not surprising; 2 bogeys and 3 doubles (on #7, #12, and #18) for a round of 80.  

Now, the Funny part (not haha).  I drove the ball pretty well for me; 12/13 fairways and the one I missed, I only missed by 3 feet.  However, I couldn't hit a 2nd shot... period... with any club!!  I only hit 3 greens in regulation; two of those were par 3's.  A bad day of ball striking and still shoot +8.  Short game was solid.

Now, the Funniest part.  On #3 the guy we were playing with hit his ball into the hazard.  My wife who still isn't playing, was helping look for his ball.  It would have been in the water, but the pond water is very low in winter.  She saw a ball (wasn't his... a TopFlite 🙄) and climbed down the bank to get it, lost her balance, and fell into the reeds.  Didn't get hurt and didn't get wet, but had to pick out hundreds of seed pods that stuck to her fleece vest.  🤣

Funny - as I was reading @Nolan220 post I was thing he same thing. Even without a scorecard I can remember the good and bad holes along with my overall score. This is irritating to my wife who constantly asks me if I recorded the score when we play. I must be a bit OCD.

82 yesterday.  Putting was not up to par.  Temps were supposed to get up to the upper 40s in the afternoon, but a fog rolled in and never lifted, keeping the temps around 40 for most of the round.  Played nines with 2 other guys with 2 lower totals paying the higher total score -- I paid out.

This is becoming comical now, the 5th straight round, I have butcher the front 9 ..(different courses) and and then on the back 9 its been a solid rounds of 38,37, 38,36,37.  No rhyme or reason for the failures on the front 9, right now I think is getting in my head.. I didn't change anything on my swing or chipping or putting from front to back.

 The back 9 have been a mostly lights out performance and the front 9 has been ridiculous  triples, doubles, etc. and is usually a 4-5 holes stretch.. (damage is done). is like there is a reset at the turn and all systems are go.

golf Love / Hate relationship.

I played yesterday, it was a par 70, and I was 7-over thru 10, probably the worst I've played in a few months. Then I finished the last 8 holes in 3 under by making birdies holes 13, 14, and 15 to shoot 74. That is one of my weirdest rounds in a while.

Growing up in Florida, we use to go watch them wrestle gators. That seemed very real and awful scary at that time.  Ahh yes, Howard Johnson's, all you can eat fried clams, Stuckey's peanut brittle, comic books, and that silly hand held game get the ball through the maze and in the hole (never mastered that one either)... those were the days.

... Pretty much the same for me, although I can remember every shot everyone in my group hit, or at least al that I saw. Then new memories start the next round.

7:00 am Tee Time, 54*, light drizzle & cloudy, Yuck.
Took so time to pay attention to what the other 3 combatants were doing. This was club selection on a 130 yard hole;
80 year old, driver
78 year old, 5 hybrid
72 year old, 3 wood
74 (me), 8 iron
The 80 year old is getting really shaky but he’s out there 3 days a week.
