Got out Saturday morning to give some new gear a go. Picked up and XTD Ti 18* hybrid with a Black Tie and an X Hot Pro 13.5* three wood during the week to go with a Bettinardi Queen Bee 5. Hit the three wood once, hybrid not at all and did not out the putter in the bag. Played well with an even par 36 on the front and a two over 38 on the back in the wind for a 74. Still driving it well and hitting the irons well now to get the short game going once again.

Shot the best round of my life today. A 1 under par 70. I have never finished under par for 18 holes until today. It would have been even lower if I hadn't found the trees off the tee on number 8 providing me a double bogey. 2 over on the front and 3 under on the back works for me!!!

Congratulations mnfats!

 

I played my last round for the year yesterday. In a word, terrible. I told my golf partner that next year, as soon as the leave start to fall, I'm done. It was just not an enjoyable round at all because of the leaves. Hit a shot that in "normal" conditions would be fine and you can't find the ball, take a drop and a stroke...not fun.

Remember at the beginning of this season when I said I was gonna start posting in here? Well it's end of season and my second post lol

 

My quest back to even is close but not gonna happen this year. Swing rebuild just won't stick for 18 holes lol

 

Anyways after what may have literally been a foot of rain on Saturday, cleared Sunday morning so we snuck out. It was fricken mucky so played the whites, but I still managed a 38-38 76 with 2 birds, 26 putts with an almost non-existent swing. I've never scrambled so well in my life and there were 1 putts galore!

 

Oh and I used my 4th putter this season which was the same Odyssey CS #2 I used from 2005ish to early 2013

Only four putters the entire season???  I think I have used that many in my last five rounds and could not even tell you how many I used this entire season.

Played a nice round saturday. IT was cool on the first few holes, with a morning temperature of just 48, but the sun was coming into a cloudless sky, so it would warm up quickly. Standing on the 1st tee box, we found we had an audience, of a fairly large female deer with a couple of juveniles that stood just into the woods and watch the group tee off.

 

Now, it has been a couple of weeks since I had played, so this was probably not going to be a stellar round, but it was good to get out. Managed to get off the tee pretty well all day, with only one really errant tee shot.  Even putted pretty well with a single 3 putt, but man oh man was the wedge game rusty. Had a case of the decel duff with the wedge. Left about 6-8 approach shots short.

 

Oh well, can't complain too much. 2 weeks off, shot an 87 with no birdies, and 3 doubles.   Sadly, another 2.5 weeks off before I'll get out again.

Had the most pars I've ever gotten in a round last Friday.  14 of them if anyone is counting (I was) however the other 4 holes were two bogeys and two doubles.  I'll take 78 all day long, but I did 4 putt for bogey on a par 5 which was pretty damn frustrating.

Just catching up on my reading here - props particularly to Westy and MBP - Westy had one of my rounds and MBP managed to play without being freaked out by a creepy partner.

 

I think that both of those things deserve a drink.

Got to get a round in yesterday - glad I did.  Starting to get the feel of the Nike Vapors and wound up with a 76.  Was -1 after 9, which is a first for me, but was 6 over on the back (with 4 pars and a birdie - go figure!).  Was able to finish Par-par to save the round.  Also, smacked longest drives of the year on 4, 9, 10 and 18...hoowee!

Shot a solid 75 today but I did finally lose a ball. Hit it into a hazard and made a round saving bogey on the hole.

This is the time of the year when I quit playing the nice courses in the area, and unless we travel somewhere warm, we just play on our little executive course because its cheap and very few people on it.  While prices are better in the winter at the big courses, they still aren't cheap.  Since greens don't hold the balls, it just doesn't make sense to play them since we can't post scores.  It becomes a time to just hang out, play with friends, and maybe practice shots.  

 

Played a quick 9 today; 61 sunny and no wind.  But that is supposed to change next week; we have freezing temps coming mid-week.  Not as bad as the midwest though.  I don't really keep score, because I play a couple of balls.  But had 2 birdies; one a chip-in with my 50 SCOR.  Have you ever had that feeling that you knew you were going to make it before you hit the ball?  I did.  I could just see it going in the hole.  Wish that would happen all the time!

We don’t stop playing the game because we get old; we get old because we stop playing the game.”

Well, I started out Par, Par, Par.....def my best start of the year.....I finished with a 44/44, 88

 

Had some hiccups along the way two of the Par 3's saw me go to the water. On a dogleg Par 4, I skipped over the first pond, then skipped over the second pond and ended with a bogey.

 

Weather was terrific.....high 60's to mid 70's.
