I'm going to make the case that I don't want to schlep my SZ from Ohio to Florida and back again. On the other hand that may backfire on me since my wife might say she needs a separate set of clubs to keep down here as well. 

It's hard for me to make the case for new irons when mine are not quite 4 years old and my wife's TaylorMade Burner irons are 2007 model.  My only argument is that hers are Ti face and mine are forged.

Wait, we are concerned about wives wanting new clubs if we want to buy new clubs? Not quite sure how this is a problem. Just buy the wife new clubs then you are free to buy whatever you want.

Secretly, I'm convincing myself they won't work in my C300s - that way I can justify 921's with recoils 🤪

Makes perfect sense to me[emoji106]

Shot a 42 playing nine today- missed a couple birdies short, but they had just punched the greens so my normally really firm and fast course was playing so SLOW. Good first round to post to the GHIN!

I snuck out for 9 this afternoon before the conference call that is going on now.  5 bogeys and 4 pars for the official opening 9 holes of the year.  A couple 3 putts on some real bumpy greens but it was some real nice 68* weather going on today!!

Ugh morning with Bacon Boyz. 6 over just bad ball striking throughout the bag.
One bright spot, at least comical. One of the Boyz who does not have a handicap tag but is very lazy drives his cart all over the place and more than not way too close to the green. A Ranger spotted our Boy in a restricted area and read him the Riot Act.
It was a beautiful thing.
A few of us have “talked” to this guy but he blows us off. Possible loss of his golf privileges for a couple weeks will put a bit of fear in you.

Well the first course in my area finally opened up today after delaying nd extra week and had to sneak out and get a few holes in. My wife decided it would be good to walk with me so it was a nice relaxing round. Played 2-3 balls bouncing all over the course as my wife leisurely walked down the fairway.

Unfortunately no birdies to add to the BEH thread but had a few great drives and some nice approaches so I'm looking forward to some progress for this year.

Another solid round. 6 over despite the solid rain from the 8th hole. No aspect of my game was outstanding, but everything was pretty solid.

I got out today for my first 18 hole round of the year with my buddy Ryan. First hole is 340 yards to the green and he nearly drove it. He's not the most consistent, but when he gets a hold of one, it's a thing of beauty. I can only stand back and say "wow".

I started off the front well, hitting the fairway, had a 7 iron in which I pushed, chipped you and two putted for bogey. The second hole is a par 3 playing 146 to the pin and I absolutely striped a 6 iron dead at the flag. I thought there might be a chance of it going in, but it wasn't meant to be. The ball ended up 2 feet past the hole and I promptly missed the birdie putt.

As you can see, the greens are being aerated and I felt like I had traveled to the Sahaerated Desert. 

I was +1 after two holes, then the wheels came off. On 3 I pull hooked a drive into higher grass and I promptly made the bad decision to try hitting a 3 wood because I thought the lie wasn't that bad. It might have traveled 5 feet. Took another whack, this time getting 50% more distance than the previous attempt. I took a 9 on that hole and things didn't get better. My driver had abandoned me along with my fairway woods, but I was encouraged with how I was hitting my irons. I ended the front with a 55.

After the turn, we arrive at my least favorite hole...the 10th. It's a dogleg left par 4 with a line of trees down the left hand side that my golf balls are attracted to. There's also sharks with laser beams in the pond to the right. Thank you to the podcast "Chasing Scratch" for that reference. I hit driver center of the fairway, blocked a 7 iron, then nearly chipped in for the bird. Unfortunately, the ball ricocheted off the flag and I two putted from 12 feet for the bogey. 

I played much better on the back, shooting 48 and hitting 5/7 fairways. I don't have any other stats, as Arccos didn't pick up a shot. I ended off the round on a positive note, nearly holing a birdie chip on the 18th, but leaving a tap in par.

Could have been a better round, but getting out and playing with my friend made it the most fun I've had on the course in a long time. That's what it's all about. 

Get those greens ready! Always nice to see the aeration.

sounds like a good day with a friend. Can’t beat 18 on a Saturday!

Even playing through that, it was fun! It's just great to be able to get out, enjoy some fresh air, and chase a ball around with a friend.
