... Well I have had 4 months of mediocre, out right bad and some occasionally pretty decent golf but only 3 total at par or under out of about 100 rounds. That said, I think I am finally figuring out

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

Doubled #9 (2nd time this year already); Doubled #17 (the easiest hole on the course); Took a 10 on #18 (after doubling #17, I got cute and tried a shot I shouldn't have).  All adds up to an 88.  It was memorable, but not a day I want to remember.  🙄

I’d take that if it meant I still shot an 88

All I can say is that it's was a good thing that my wife moved back to the Senior tees (she's been feeling cocky since shooting 85 in the Ladies league last Wednesday from the forward tees), otherwise she would likely have beaten me.  She shot 99.

i got out on the course yesterday to practice / play.  There were only 4 cars in the lot at 2pm probably because the Ravens were playing!  I have been working on a few swing things and hit 3 or 4 off each tee and multiple approach shots to gauge the progress.  I did this for the first 6 holes and then played a single ball on the last 3 for a little scoring pressure.  Tee balls and wedges were fine, things were working in sequence and I had the ball flight I expected.  The mid irons were horrible pulls, I had no feel for the timing of my full iron swing.  It was fun since at 45* it was another bonus day in January to swing the clubs outside.

An interesting day on Saturday, have been dealing with some forearm pain, so I took it easy for the week. On the range before my round, didn't hit anything that resemble golf shots. 
First hole, quick pull drive into the trees, made 6, then it was 2 over from there on on the front, and even par up to 17/18 which turn that into 3 over par.  Had 5 three puts, 3 of them on par 3s, and the last 2 holes of the round.

73% Fairways hit
67% GIR
35 Putts (a lot of lip outs...ouch)

Ended with a 79,  100% should have been much better.  

Bottom line, Golf decides what game you are going to have that day,  no you.. LOL!

I've had too many in the last few weeks....I'm blaming it on cold weather (bulky clothing) and wet, sloppy fairways.  Well, those and my own flaws 😄 😄

Our weather is just starting to get warm again, low 80’s and high 70’s. BUT, the morning is close to 40, and I’m getting tired of the cold. Too many layers and gloves and a big beanie makes a swing difficult... but the track gets so crowded lately with the shutdown, it’s a zoo going later...

... Haven't had an Eagle in quite awhile and had my second in a week today. Wind at our back, more a 5-7 mph breeze but it has been windless here in the desert the last 3 weeks. I had 205 to a front pin on the second par 5 and hit a 6 iron over the green and cozied up for a birdie. Desert fairways, some slope and a little breeze does wonders for your distance. 3rd par 5 I caught the downslope with that same wind at my back but this time it was pretty flat to the green, so again from 205 I hit 6 iron to about 12 feet and pin high. This time I made the Eagle putt.

... Sitting on 1 under I hit a big drive on 18 that just found the normally unreachable last bunker, caught just a little much sand and I rolled in the water short/left of the green. Everything middle to left finds the water and I was aiming right but the little sand closed my face just enough to find the center of the fairway ... which feeds right to the water. Dropped and with the pin tight over the bunker I had to go a little long and lipped out the 10 footer for a double and finished 1 over. 

... Gonna be in the upper 70's Thursday and Friday. 😍

Do you have a room to rent out?

Finally had a gorgeous winter day.  Sun was out, mid 50s, and little wind.  Shoot a 40 on the front 9.  13 is an elevated green par 3 and I hit a poor shot that came up short.  As I'm walking down the hill to my ball, my feet slip on the mud and I catch myself going down.  Pain to my bad left foot and a sharp pain in my left lat muscle.  I gather myself and give myself a moment to recover, pitch the ball a bit past the hole and it rolls back toward the pin.  Make the putt and move on to the next hole, but things are still painful.  On my practice swing on the next tee box, it's quickly apparent that further play is not a good move.  Sigh!  I head in for the day.  Lying on the bed with the computer now and feeling much better.

Damp 48* 50* this morning, not really pleasant. This course is supposed to be one of the best here but we were all disappointed, lack of grass.
Had a miserable 9 holes. Driver was really good everything else just horrible. I guess a 2 week layoff was a bit too long.
Not playing until Tuesday so will need to get in some short game practice.
It’s going to be a few weeks until we get everyone back from COVID.

I played on frozen greens in 38 degree weather. Hard to stop a ball on ice.

have to bounce it onto greens, of course on. Elevated green that makes it really hard.

i did drive it well.

Ice golf

Jan 12, 2021; Putnam, CT; 33 degrees at 10:10 tee off.
Greens were like basketball courts. You hit a high shot next to the pin, the ball bounces 15 feet in the air and lands off the green in a bunker...😬 Some greens still had snow and ice you had to putt through and one had an entirely frozen cup so the pin couldn't be placed in it. "Water" hazards were frozen over. Didn't hit into one but was tempted to skip one across. 🤣 Maybe I was a little early? Oh well.... had to try the new driver and putter.
2 over on the front and the back is not up for discussion.... 🙁

That is seriously hardcore.

Winter golf in New England definitely a challenge.
Used to play Portland CT course in winter.
