Well, my wife dragged me out to the course Saturday even though I didn't want to go.  Winds were 25-35 with 50+ gusts.  She said just pretend you are in Scotland without the rain!!

I started off really well with pars on the first 4 holes, including #3 which I have the most doubles on so far this year.  Then a Triple on the par 5 #5 straight into the wind, and a double on the par 4 #7 going the same direction.  However, I birdied the par 5 #9.  First birdie on that hole this year!!  A good 42 for me, even with no wind.

Then the wind picked up!!!  I had 4 doubles on the easier back nine for a 46, worst score to par on that nine ever, I think.  Still, the 88 is about the same score I have been shooting lately when there has been no wind.

Sounds like my round yesterday. I started 3 over through first 4 holes and then got the yips on my next par 5, shanking a drive. Next hole wast best drive with the new shaft, but then I shanked my 6i and then was too long on my 3/4 Pw into the green. I was +10 on the par 5s, which included three putt parring the last par 5. I was trying to stress my 3w ( see if it deserves to stay in my bag) so no surprise there. Wind was stronger than forecasted and was damp out. Ended up 3 shots away from breaking 100. With playing a game managed style of laying up better I would have scored mid 90s. Also only lost one ball the whole 18 which is remarkable for me considering all but 1 par 5 and par 4 I pulled driver.

Following yesterday's nice round with a crappy round.  Couldn't find my tempo and made awful contact all day long.  Bogey city!  86

How do you go out in absolutely beautiful weather... 50º sunny and very little wind and shoot the exact same score you did the day before when the wind blew 30+mph with 50mph gusts??  88

I drove the ball better today but nothing else worked... no short game, couldn't make a putt, no birdies.  My wife, however, had 3 birdies including #1 and #2.  She has never birdied them both in the same round.  But she also had a few very bad holes including a triple par on the par 3 #12; she spent a lot of time in the sand today...  95.

Played yesterday afternoon....horrible ball striking, just couldn’t seem to string more than a couple of decent shots together. Worst score in months

51 - 45 = 96 ....at least I kept it under 100

I’m west of the gorge so we rarely get snow. Doing 18 first first time this year. Need some time to not be thinking about my dad’s surgery 

I got news for you.  You're getting snow this Thursday through Monday.  Hope you got a snow shovel!!

Warming up today for tomorrow’s round with CZ-Rob......I walked today and shot a 39/44:83. I birdied the #1 Hcap Hole #4 and #8 Hcap Hole #10, both Par 4’s. Chipped in from 4 yards off the green on #4 and one putted from Pin high 8 feet on #10. On another note, my pushcart tipped over into a washout in front of #5 today as I stopped to fish a couple balls out of the pond. I forgot to set the wheel brake and as I was getting the balls out of the pond, my pushcart rolled into the 4’ washout and flipped over. I got it out and proceeded to the green . I realized m6 iPhone was missing about 3 holes later. So after the round, we got a cart and drove out to bathe hole then called my phone only to hear the sweet sound of the Masters Theme (my ringtone) coming from the bottom of the washout. I later asked the GM to have the washout filled in. He said no problem.

Overall, great day walking as it warmed up from 65* to 80*.

Fishing a lot as tourney season has started, so only playing once a week if that. Scoring hi 70’s low 80’s. Typically a crap front, then I remember how to play on the back. Just goes to show, you need to swing every day if you want to play effectively...

Ugly again. The course was absolutely SOAKED. Cart path only, and mud everywhere.


My group plays on Sunday and it has been about a month since I have gotten to the course due to rain. While not ideal, I’d take wet cart path only conditions.

I was glad to get outside!!! I didn’t do very well hitting shots near the cart path to reduce my amount of walking! Ha!

Early morning HEAVY FOG and they let us out.
Shot +3, 39 which makes me a happy Ole Fart.
The TSI2 driver has been fighting me last few outings sooo out came the G410+. Reset the head to 12* (from 1.5+) and was killing it. I would have liked to play 18 but my knee was starting to swell a bit and 3 ibuprofen didn’t help.
Not playing until Friday as wife has a Doc appointment tomorrow and I’m going w her. So Friday Bacon Boyz!

Met up with CZ-Rob from Detroit, MI today for a round at Pebble Creek GC in Tampa. He had just taken possession of new Callaway Apex Irons. Man could he pound them! We played not so good, I shot a 44/49:93 with one penalty. Rob shot a 43/41:84. We both struggled with chips and putts. Anyway we had some fun. The weather was in the low 80’s.

Oh, BTW, the CZ in CZ-Rob stands for the Czechoslovakia where his parents are from. He also has a putter making business, EV3D where he designs putters then prints them on a 3D printer. Very sweet looking putters and they roll smooth. Maybe he will share some down the road.
