It looked like a good morning for you to be out and that 45 footer sounds awesome! Love the picture. 

Thanks!  I forgot to mention earlier that I had a par-saving one putt on 18 from 23 feet😁.  Must say the DF 2.1 acquitted itself quite well from long range today.

After six years of playing, I got my first hole in one yesterday! Pretty crazy feeling to see the ball drop from the tee box. It was a slight downhill par 3 from 150 yards, got it done with a 9 iron!

There's nothing quite like the feeling of watching a long range putt finding the bottom of the hole.

Not sure you can call what I did “playing golf.” More like “flailing at little balls in the grass with long sticks.” This is a hard game to get good at playing at most a couple times a month. Had a beautiful Maine fall day here in Florida, though.

Started off with a crisp 36 degree and foggy morning and was quickly 5 over par after 3 holes.  Made a par on #4 and slowly regained some resemblance of golf, finishing with a 82.  Too many mental errors in my game right now.  Can't remember the last time I shot my handicap.  It froze at 7.0 at the end of November and I don't believe I've had a decent round since.  To be fair, I'm not doing a lot of practice in this colder weather, either...so there's that.

Well, started off with a crisp 36º and foggy morning and was quickly 4 over after 3 holes.  Made a par on #4 and slowly regained some resemblance of golf, finishing with an 82.  However, I didn't have any mental errors... OK, may be a couple.  🙄  I had one no-putt birdie and 3 doubles.  At least we celebrated my birdie with a shot of Wild Turkey Honey Sting (thank you @fozcycle).

Temp was 44* and we had a light crowd(25). My play was horrible, pulling approach shits to left bunker, then could not get out! Usually my ball was under the upper lip. I shot 46/45:91 with only one birdie (#7).

No golf tomorrow, SWMBO has a contractor coming to demo our pool bath and we will have a frost delay with Temp in low to mid 30’s.

Hey, your playing that's good considering what you were dealing with a few weeks ago!

44/42 at Mesa Del Sol for me today which included 3 OB's 🤬.  Winds were not quite as bad as forecasted but still very brisk and made for some fun shots.  Shotscope V2 had the blue flag on the par 3 #5 at 148 and directly into the 15+mph wind.  My windage adjustment put it at 158.  That would normally have me at a flush 7i or average strike a 6i.  Because the backside has a bunch of ball grabbing Oleander bushes, I chose the 7i, pressed forward a wee bit more than normal and caught it very well. I was able to 3 putt from 14 feet 😕.

Played today for the first time this year - 41-42 83 sounds terrible but it’s been two weeks since I’ve be swung a club and it was a lovely 52 degrees, breezy and still ridiculously wet for this time of the year here

I know 52 sounds great to many of you but one of the guys we played with just moved here from PA and he couldn’t believe how cold it felt. If Kenny peeks at this it was a very similar day to the one we played on when you were here.

It felt good to get out. I’m just so busy because of additional pressures from COVID. We also had our third death from it this week

Yes sir, even being from MI, 52 windy and wet is still 52 windy and wet, never good.

Very sorry for all of you who have lost loved ones.

Can I assume “pulling approach shits” is intentional? Seems appropriate.[emoji6]

Thanks!  I glanced up as I was retrieving my ball, and said to myself, "that's cool, I gotta get a pic"

As soon as I saw that pic, I thought to myself... That would make a great license plate for the front of my car.  Great photo, thanks for sharing.

The covid situation up on Long Island was so bad my plans were changed and I got back to Myrtle Beach way sooner than I thought I would.

Got home Wednesday night and played my first round of golf in almost a month today. Considering I hadn’t touched a club since I left, I was happy with an 85 on the Barefoot Norman course today.

It was a weird day. Not a lot of really good shots, but very few really bad one either. The driver distance wasn’t what I’d like to see, and the irons(other than a 165 yard 6 iron to 4 feet for a birdie and CTP) weren’t really sharp, but my short game and putting were pretty good.

My team took front, back, and total to sweep the pot ($120 each) and that ctp got me another $20, so it was a profitable day on the links, lol.

@chisag had to chuckle about your comment "I'm really not that bad"....reminds me of the guy that, after playing a few holes with someone he doesn't know, asks "what's your handicap?"  Then, after hearing the guy's reply, mutters "guess we'll just have to take your word for that" 😄

... I always tell golfers that are self conscious that nobody cares how you play as long as you keep up and are pleasant company. On the first hole today, I really put that to a test. I have a 1:36 tee time but come early and the starter tells me he can't get me out early because he is booked with 4somes solid til 1:42. It is 12:15 so I just putt a little and my back is really stiff but I don't want to stretch and warm up only to wait and get stiff again. Starter yells "SAM!" (always a good idea to befriend the starters) and it turns out one of the guys that teed off got an emergency phone call and had to leave so you know the drill ... hurry up and hit while 3 guys that have already hit are waiting. They are in also carts and I am walking. 

... So I rush to the tee, stiff and cold and push/fade a tee shot into the edge of the range. Guys are very cool and say take another. I then hit a low left pull that ends up in the bunker on 2. By the time I get to my ball they are waiting in their carts with all 3 balls in the fairway. I am right against the lip and can only advance the ball about 25 yds. They all hit and are on the green waiting for me as I air mail the green long and left from 125!?! I get to my ball sitting down and proceed to blade my LW over the green, past their heads and in thorn trees on the other side. I am not sure I ever played a hole that bad Deven when I first started playing. 🤪

... I tell the guys I am done and wait for them to finish putting. They tell me to drop a ball and see what the greens are like and I hit a putt from 30 feet to a tap in an d they are all supportive and say "there ya go! great speed and a very good putt!" I know they were being supportive but I felt like an idiot and wanted to blurt out "really guys, I am not this bad" because that would be exactly what someone that really is that bad would say. When I bladed that LW past their heads I had a better understanding of someone that rarely plays, hacking it around and getting paired up with good golfers. I played the next 17 holes at -1 and we got along great and they invited me play together again. So while I know I should have taken my own advice that nobody cares how you play, I felt like a complete idiot playing that first hole. What a humbling game this is...

Many of us hackers have gotten used to rushing to the 1st tee without a warmup, so we are not all that flustered with a bad shot or two.  Nice recovery on the next 17!!

It's warmer here in the PNW.  We had no frost delays this past week, and none are forecasted as temps soar into the 50's by Tuesday.

Trying to ease myself back in, so I only brought two clubs to the range yesterday and hit very few shots. Off to a good start though! Back feels good this morning, which is what really matters the most. 

Struggled with a lot of shots just towards the heel of center. I think I need to work on my right leg from the transition through impact. I’m not getting my weight off that leg correctly, and I’m ending up the slightest bit outside in. Time for a lesson!

... I hear ya. A bad back prevents me from standing in place and hitting balls before I start a round but I always spend about 5 minutes stretching and doing some jumping jacks to get the blood flowing and loosen up before I start playing. This time just caught me off guard.

First round in 21 and first round in about a month.   First hole of the year provided an eagle opportunity and tap in birdie.  Ran off 6 straight pars followed by a double and a par to finish the first 9 at +1.   The wheels fell off on the second 9 with 1 par, 2 doubles and 6 bogeys.  36/47:83.   7FW, 5 GIR, and 28 putts.  Only a few "bad" tee shots and iron play was a bit off.  Short game was working on the front 9 but became miserable on the back.  Kind of lost focus on the back 9 and think I was trying too hard to play better after a few bad holes.   As a bonus,  I made it home in time to watch the final Bears game of the season.
