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

... 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

Played my first real round of 18 today in almost 2 months. I can definitively say that sim golf is not real golf. Sheesh. 15 mph winds all round, and directly in my face for the first four holes. Ugh. The range was only open to 7 iron or less, so that hurt too. Anyway, once I got used to the wind, I played pretty well. Fairways were mush, and four holes were path only. Driver was really good, better on the back 9 once I got going. I hit the balls much higher than with my previous driver, which for the mushy fairways was good today, but I’m thinking I’m going to loft down from 10.5 to 9.5 next round. My two best non-driver shots were a 5 iron that played 215 into the wind (Arccos adjusted distance, which was +26!) that I hit to 18 feet, and a putt for birdie I sank from 39 feet! 
In the pics below, here is my drive on 16 and then the pic of how much “roll” I got, my grip is pointing to the “divot” , then my drive on 18.

A little help from the wind, but zero roll... It was a nice way to finish the round, driving-wise.

Thanks. I Can’t wait until the weather gets back in the 70s so I’m not bundled-up and can feel a little more free with the swing.

Between weather conditions and not having played an actual round in two months, those are some killer drives. I'm glad to hear you got the Beast out on the course to get a sampling of what it's going to do.

43/46 today at Desert Hills.  The winds were whipping and swirling, making for some interesting club selections.  A couple of absolutely forged 3w's that covered a whopping 180 yards. A 9i from 104 yards, to the uphill #5 ... which ended up being the right choice.  A drive on #10 that ended up 279 yards from the tee. Second round with a really nice guy and solid player I met while playing the pro/am in December. 👍

#6 Elevated Tee, par 5... with the wind... let er' rip.

It was the warm before the storm tuesday(52 degrees) so I had to go play: storm coming in meant 12-20 mph of wind for the round. Shot my worst score in a while (82) hit 2 fairways all round and only 8 greens in regulation. Throw in 2/10 on up & down and 35 putts and there ya go.
 

Sounds like one of my good rounds in mild conditions.  Not bad!

3 over today for a 40, with a double and 2 birds

Struggling with driver, but the putter is an absolute weapon. Once I figure out how to get the ball closer to the hole on my approaches, my scores should drop a few strokes for sure.

Bacon Boyz 9 this morning. 49*, stiff wind & cloudy, not pretty.
Overall I played well +4 w no birds but many quality up & downs as wind was nasty. G710’s are really making a case to stay for a while. I’m still thinkin it’s the Recoil Shafts that make the difference.
Some bad news again as a couple more guys were hospitalized for C19. One guy caught it twice!! Didn’t know that could happen.

My wife and I walked the front nine this afternoon; all tee times were booked until 2:10, and we were paired with a 20-something single in a cart.

Started out good; par - birdie - par, then bogeyed the remaining 7 holes.  Hadn't picked up a club since Monday, and it was good exercise on a sunny 65º afternoon.  

We had to play today, because our 11:10am tee time tomorrow is right in the middle of a cloudy 57º day with a wind advisory... 25-35mph with gusts to 50.  😬

Your forecast made me check the weather for my round tomorrow. 10-15 mph and chance of rain. Guess it’s 3w hybrid time. If the 3w struggles continue its time to go Super....

I'm driving to Corvallis on Monday to clean out my dad's assisted living apartment.  After his fall on Christmas Day he has been in rehab and the assessment is that he needs more supervision and can't return to that facility.  We are going to move him up to my area soon.

I always check the weather in Cascade Locks and it looks like they will be getting a lot of snow starting Thursday through the weekend.  Hope you can golf next weekend!!

Well, we had our Super Bowl Tournament yesterday.  Interesting, to say the least.  Format was a 3 man best ball with 2 best net on even holes and best net/best gross on the odd holes.  Opportunities to earn a mulligan on 2 of the holes by throwing a football through a hole on one hole and throwing 2 of 3 into a trash can on another.  Had to use the mulligan on that hole and could not give it to a partner.  I earned a mulligan on the par 3 but didn't use it.  Both of my partners earned mulligans on the par 5, used them, but it didn't matter.  Another hole had the tiny hole, which I made par and my partners fared far worse.  Our handicaps were 3,4, and 5, with me being the higher.  I was medalist for our group with an awful performance of 83.  Sad!  My partners stunk it up way more than me, both shooting an 87 (and those numbers were generous on a few holes).  One of those days.  We finished dead last in our flight.  LOL.  Oh well, was a nice day otherwise.

 Other than being stuck behind 2 slow groups and cold because the sun refused to peek through the clouds/fog, it was a better round today.  Had 2 doubles and 2 birdies to come in 6 over with a 40/38.  Oh, and sun finally made it's arrival while we were in the fairway of #18.  Go figure.

Played with my father and my buddy that I usually play with.  Front nine was horrific.  I thought I'd try the Wilson Duos since I'd had good luck with them in the past.  Nope.  Couldn't drive, couldn't hit an iron, wedges were so-so and putting was eh.  A lot of it has to do with the fact that my father doesn't play much and is sooooo slooooow.  I always feel like we've got the entire course backed up, which makes me hurry everything.  He's 78, and I want to take advantage of every single opportunity to do things like this with him, but it completely screws up my already iffy game.

Went back to the Maxfli Tour on the back nine, and was  better.  Most of it still wasn't great, but I did have the best 3 hole stretch I've had in a long, long time. 

#15 is a par 5 playing about 475.  Drive about 265 into the middle of the fairway.  210 yard 3-wood onto the green.  Rolled a 25 foot eagle putt about 3 inches short, perfectly on line.  Tap in birdie.

#16 is a par 4 playing about 360.  Drive about 255 in the middle, leaving around 105.  Hit a solid 56* wedge and watched it bounce over the back, which surprised the heck out of me.  Drove around to the back and didn't see it anywhere.  Asked my buddy on the green to check the cup.  "You little rascal" was the exact quote.  So, one hop and in from 105 for eagle.  Can't remember the last time I carded an eagle.

#17 is a par 3 playing around 150.  Easy 8 iron to about 8 feet and managed to roll the putt for birdie.

All of that makes the number that I carded for the back even more disgusting.
