Another windy day in the Rogue Valley.  While the temperature was 60, the wind was cold and the temps dropped significantly during the course of the round, along with a bit of drizzle the last 2 holes.  Started off really bad and was 6 over after 6 holes.  Played the next 12 holes at 3 over for an 81 for the day.  

Nice comeback!  That always feels good.

... 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

That is Worthington Manor, it is the closest course, 2.8 mi, from my house. It is often a US Open Qualifier, I drive by it everyday on the way to day care. I committed to keeping the driver in the bag most of the day and that part of the plan worked. I instead found a lot more sand than during my usual rounds at "easier" courses. You can tell that between the tee and the green was quite an adventure for me out there.

I played in The 🥶 Cold! Temperatures in the high 30’s with a 15 mph wind is no joke.

Actually it was about  10 degrees warmer with light winds on the first tee. But by the back nine it was Nordic conditions. I did have 2 birdies and barely broke 80.

44/41 at Mesa Del Sol today.  Not sure what it is about this course but it messes with me.  Another rash of the short-wedge-itis.  Right on target shots sitting on the front aprons... dang is that ever frustrating.  Oh well, on the plus side, the new driver shaft put me down range on two fairways in second shot yardages I'd not had before.

Not a good day today.  Weather was beautiful...except for the times the sun was behind the clouds and the temps would drop accordingly....anyway, none of that has anything to do with my pitiful performance today.  I really struggled finding my tempo today.  As a result, I was striking the ball pretty poorly with anything from open face slices to boned full wedge shots.  I think I had 3 doubles on the frontside and came in the a 9 over 45.  On the back, I somehow found myself and started hitting the ball well again.  Took a double on the par 5 #12 when I hit my shot out of the wet sand bunker long and then 3 putted.  Shot 3 over 39 on the back to record an 84 for the day.  On the plus side, I was playing a match/medal game with my friend, giving him 5 strokes.  We were dormie  with 4 holes to go and I won the last 4 holes to break even in match play and I beat him on medal play as he took a couple of triples along the way.  

Knocking off some of my earlier better rounds and my handicap is going up.  I froze for the winter at a 7.0 index and, as of this morning, it was a 7.5.  Todays 84 knocks a 79 out of the 20 rounds, so my index will be higher tomorrow.  I'm really liking the new handicap system with the daily changes rather than bi-weekly.  I know others don't share my thoughts on that, but it's what we have.

Played pretty decently today, was making pretty good strikes with my irons. Main thing that helped was making sure my hands weren't too high at address. Didn't fully keep score today, was just trying to make it through the rain and then hail. Also, some greens were more or less unputtable due to puddles of water.

More importantly than how I played, where on earth did my club finds these balls to put on the range? Usually we have nice clean balls at the range.

Those look like they've been stored in the Asarco slag piles down on Ruston Way.  I'm guessing it was one of the range employees last day at work 🤣.

An ok day today. 42 on the front and a 46 on the back. Shot of the day was a birdie on a 291 Par 4. My wife even gave me a gimme on it but I putted it out for the bird anyway. Sorry for the sideways photo.

Much better weather today. Played a solid 53 on the front 9. Made some good shots obviously missed others. Getting comfortable with my new hybrid. Poolesville Golf Course was looking good for March.

Up to 60 today, woot!  Very surprised but I was able to book a tee time this afternoon.  Turned out I played by myself, nice change of pace 👌

The winter practice looks like it’s going to pay off.  Tree trouble on #8 cost me a couple of shots, just unlucky where it ended up.  I had 210 into #3, into the sun so I couldn’t see it down.  18” away.  Color me shocked but I’m not complaining!

Playing 18 tomorrow. Double woot!!

My wife NEVER gives birdie putts!! 

Cloudy morning; a little sun in the afternoon and mid-50's, but the wind was 20-30mph... chilly, and so was my game.  Nothing worked.  I did not have any GIR... sad!  My short game that worked well yesterday took the day off.  Shot 87 with 3 doubles.

🤣  When the ladies play - the ball could be resting on the lip and they still wouldn't give you the putt. She's more generous when just the two of us play - but i still putt it out.
