... Playing with my normal partner from Chicago. He is much longer than I am and usually out drives me by 10-20yds playing the tips while I play the mens. But we are evenly matched or close as I usually beat him by a stroke or two. Heading into #16 a difficult par 3 playing 198 for him and 181 for me we were tied at 1 over. #16 is a little uphill and into a gentle breeze and he hit it 4 feet below the hole. I hit 1" behind the ball and dribbled my tee shot about 90 yds. I got the wrong yardage somehow thinking it was 68 and it was 98 so I barely hit my 58* to the front edge. Next I have a 90ft uphill breaking putt and run it 12 feet past the hole. CJ is still waiting to hit his birdie putt and said "this could be a a 3 shot swing" so I rolled in my putt for the ugliest 4 in par 3 history. He missed his birdie and it was a one shot swing. He took an 8 on the next par 4 while I made par and I said "Sorry I forgot to answer you but you were right, it was a 3 shot swing" To his credit he laughed and said "I hate you". 🤣

... To add insult to injury he hit a 336yd drive on 18 leaving him an 8 iron in while I had 198 and hit a 4 iron to 10 feet and made the birdie while he spun his 8 iron back off the green and into the bunker finishing with a bogie while I resisted the urge to say "sorry, 5 shot swing". The golf gods can be very punitive. 

and the moral of the story:  Never trash talk until AFTER you hit.  🙂

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

Reminds me of when I moved to Fargo, ND.   When I first met some fellow golfers and they found out that I'd just moved to Fargo, they'd ask "Do you like to play in the wind?  If not, you won't be playing very often."

I was born and raised in Oregon.  My dad graduated from OSU in 1962 and got a job in Fargo.  So, we packed up and moved.  I was a day late starting the 10th grade, and the teacher introduced me to the class.  One of the kids asked if I was from the South because I had a funny accent!!!  😂  We headed back to Oregon when school was out the next spring.

@Kenny B . We lived there 2 years.  Lovely during 7 months of the year, brutal during 4-5.  Some awesome golf courses in the area, particularly in MN....unfortunately, short playing periods 🙂  It was -15 degrees the day we moved from Fargo, with a wind chill factor around -40ish.  Two seasons -- Winter and Road Repair.  Yeah, I'm liking Medford much better!  😄

Unremarkable day score wise. 47 on the front 41 on the back for an 88. It was a verrrrry slow day, it  took my wife and I,  4 1/2 hours to play. We did have a father and his 4 year old join us for a few holes - the boy was so excited playing with his dad. Fun to see the two of them bonding over golf.

55 on nine today. Not great. Played from tips for fun due to a big hitter in the group and that killed me on approach shots. Also tried to kill it more which lead to wayward drives. Had 4 penalty strokes and lost 5 strokes due to approach shots. Ugh. Super hybrid was a mixed bag. Need more off the deck practice. On flip side, big hitter in the group had an Epic Speed and that thing looked and performed beautiful. I was impressed.

A real stinker today. 44/46 at Mesa Del Sol.  Started with a fantastic drive on #1, leaving a perfect position 112 yards... wedge shanked right but managed to keep to a bogey.  Another great drive on #2 leaving 129, shanked the 9i but managed par. From there on things just never got into a groove.  Gutted my 56/12 twice with one across the green and into water.  With the round already in shambles, opted to take some risks on several holes (vs. layup) and they did not work out... water, water, and oleander bush.  Were it not for my putter on the back nine, things could have gotten really ugly. 🤮

Well, I did play today.  Still trying to get comfortable with my golf swing changes.  Hit some really good shots and some not so good ones.  I didn't keep score, but I guess it was in the 80-83 range.  I got in trouble with a few shots on several holes that forced punch-out/layup/recovery shots.  With no competition on the line, I didn't bear down on my putting like I normally do.  I was treating the day more as a day to work on the swing changes and less about score.

BTW, I taught him how to play when he was a teen. He doesn’t get much time on the course as he is a Police Officer and rebuilds fiberglass boats in his off time.

Finally broke 80 at Sea ‘N Air Golf Club, which is one of my regular tracks. Played with a couple guys from work so we played from the whites, but it’s only a 300 yard difference from the blues. Had a PBFU hole that was followed by a streak of bogeys so as usual, it could’ve been better!

My round was a dumpster fire. One of those rounds where you start having different swings thoughts on every swing. Plus it was just muddy and yucky out.

We had a break in the weather today. 74 degrees and sunny. Golf course was going to open at 11:00. I didnt warm up due to some larger groups looking like they were going to head over to the first tee. Just went for it.  Missed the first fairway by about 2 yards but still in OK position. 6 out of 7 faiways today. Aimed for all the bunkers to try out my new sand wedge. The Sub-70 JB wedge worked out very well even in the wet bunkers. Couple of sand saves. Unfortunately the black finish is already showing marks. Played well considering not playing for two months. Quit after 9 holes due to the high winds picking up just after I got off of hole 9. A lift clean and place round due to all the soft soil and mud. Greens were slow.

Three bogies, five pars, and one birdie for a 38.
