... 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

Had a strange one today.
-4(33) on the front, with 5 birdies.
+6(41) on the easier back with 2 doubles.

I just forgot who I was for an hour or so.

Someone must have fired up the microwave on the 15th tee.
 

Nice front nine anyway.

Line your hat with aluminum foil next time.  😂

+1 38 (par 37) today

3/7 FiR

4/9 GiR

14 Putts

Putter was working well today! Started out with a 3-putt double on the first but after that I turned up. Had a case of the pulls with every other club, but putter saved me. Need to figure out driver again, but it seems like it's always something  and I'm just happy to be able to threaten shooting par.

Shot 42/42:84 today with a birdie on #1. One of the holes I didn’t birdie in 2020. Weather warmed up to high 70’s. We had 45 players today.

42/37 at Mesa Del Sol today.  Came close to an even back nine with a peek-a-boo birdie putt on 18.  The weather was great and with the rains now moved on from the last few days, the air is crystal clear and the mountains looked picture perfect... so I obliged (though they do a poor job).

18º last night... so 2 hour frost delay today; the club started everyone on split tees.  Sunny, not a cloud in the sky.  It got up to 41º today but that was after we finished.

Not a great day, shot 86 with 2 triples and a double.  Those 3 holes really cost me, and there were NO penalty shots involved.  My wife moved back from the Forward tees to the Senior tees and shot 87.  I have GOT to start playing better!!

However, I did have 2 birdies; both holes I haven't birdied this year, so those went on the 2021 Birdie Challenge spreadsheet.  One of those birdies, our par 4 #10 is a hole I didn't birdie all of last year.  Wouldn't have birdied it today, if I hadn't chipped it in.  Glad to get that one out of the way early this year!!

Played in our annual Alternate Shot event.

Not great. We shot 78 and finished 2nd with a triple and no putts made longer than 6 feet..  

We did make more birdies than any other group, so that's nice.

Got a round in today in less than stellar conditions....pretty sloppy and the dreaded cart path only

Course was playing quite a bit longer with all the rain but the good news it was really easy to hold the green 🤪

46+44 = 90

Played OK today until the #6 hole -  started on the back nine where I shot 39.  However, the 10 I took on #6 deflated my game for the last 3 holes... finished with an 87.

My biggest problem was getting the tee height correct on frozen ground.  On most holes I used a knockdown shot to land the ball short of the green and bounce it in to the green.  Can't do that on the par 3's with trouble short; ball ends up over the green.  On one hole I purposely landed short in a bunker as the sand shot was easier to get close to the pin than a shot landing on the green.  

We finished, put our clubs in the trunk, drove out of the parking lot, and it started snowing... still snowing 3 hours later.  Don't think the course will be open tomorrow.

Played 27 on the sim today, and I had my two lowest rounds ever on one of these babies!

We played Hazeltine- Ryder Cup setup first, and I shot even, 72. Then we played 9 at Whistling Straits-Irish course and I shot one under 35!!! 

The sledgehammer and the putter were the stars of today!!! I hit SO many fairways, and I even made a few putts! 
I put some specifics about how the driver did in my thread “PMookie’s sledgehammer”.

Good day today!
