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. 

Golf in a nutshell right there

My only consolation was seeing the ring of and around the ball and knowing I was rolling it good. Cleaning the ball after each green, that's another story.

Nice to be back in this thread. Played my first round of the year and thanks to being south it was not frozen golf as I am used to. Hit it really solid all day and thanks to a nice eagle on 18 posted -1 for the day. The work I did the last 6 months in the gym is paying dividends. I don’t feel like I am at game speed yet and hit as long as I normally do with less effort.

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. 

 

20210313_102211-01.jpeg.cc0028e09eb0e74d8ca68db3ee1f28e5.jpeg

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. 

For a minute I thought you guys were playing with snow on the green.

Kiskiack today and Golden Horseshoe tomorrow. It was a golf course and I was not overly impressed with the layout, too many short par 5’s even off the tips.

First round of the year! And a new-to-me course as well. First one off after they lifted the frost delay at 11 a.m., had a windy but sunny round in the low 40s. I walked 18, and it was was more hilly than I anticipated. Quite the workout.

- 42/41 = 83 (+11)
- 6/14 FIR
- 5/18 GIR
- 28 Putts (1 3-putt, 9 2-putts, 7 1-putts, 1 "putt-in" from fringe)

tempFileForShare_20210313-153259.jpg.8b68f55d435de3d1e05f707576a1a52c.jpg

I told myself I would be happy with anything better than a 90 for the first round of the year and I'm very, very pleased with the 83. My swing was not great at all, but my putting and short game are way, way, way improved from technique changes, equipment changes and all of the practice I've put in over the winter. My short game and putting rescued me so many times today, and I got a ton of lucky breaks that saved me a handful of strokes as well.

Driver started off straight and pretty long, and everything went downhill from there. A few nice ones out there 260+ carry, with a wind-aided one out to 273 up a hill. Toward the end of the round as I got more tired I wiped a few slices off the planet and snap-hooked a ball that should have gone OB left but was saved by a tree. Oh well! I'll take the breaks.

I messed around with the GoPro and cut together three holes. Funny enough, these three holes show off the shakiness of the game today. There's a few chunks, a snap-hooked driver and a stuck wedge in there... 🤣. ShotTracerApp seems to be fairly picky about what it picks up, unfortunately.

(Watching the video now, I see I started to suck the club inside more as the round progressed and I started to get tired. C'est la vie. 🤷‍♂️)

(EDIT: Also noticed the hole and score tracker are wrong and all the same. Par 3, Par 5, Par 4 is the order - bogey, par, bogey.)

Nice Edin! Was this with the new MMT shafts?  How are you liking them?

Another Sh$y day.....I only hit 4 FIR’s today. On #14 I stepped in some leaves and when I went to remove a clump from my shoe found out it was sh&t.....also got it on my glove, then put drive in water.......very sh&$$y round. Shot 44/47:91 no birdies.


Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

That was still slightly better then my round today. 47 on the front and 45 on the back. My problem today was the constant waiting.. Waiting on the tee, then on the fairway.....It was just my wife and myself but even though the round took just over 4 hrs., it seemed like we were out for six hours. Then on the last two holes the 4some in back was hitting into us 😡. Last time we may be playing on the weekend.

The MMTs are great, I see no reason to play steel ever again. I actually didn't hit many irons today, lots of driver/wedge. Enjoying the MMT wedge shafts around the green, too.

I struck maybe two irons well all day, but they did feel great. The Sub70's have a ton of forgiveness and the flight is perfect with the MMTs.

It's good to see you were able to get out for a round and put those beautiful Sub 70's in play. That's pretty good scoring for the first round of the year, looks like the winter practice is paying off. The camera footage is great, those Go Pros look so much better than the phone footage I've been taking.

Thanks! Yes, the GoPro is better than I expected. Very simple to use, also. 

I do have a ton of respect for anyone who records and puts together more than a couple of holes. It's a time-consuming process! But it was fun to do and I'll try to do a few holes every now and then this year.

I went to play yesterday after being told the course was wide-open, but after 4 holes I ended-up two groups behind a fivesome that was holding-up everyone. Ugh. I ended-up turning off the Arccos and just practiced around the greens and hit pitches while I waited each hole. I tried to skip past two groups at 10, thinking I’d come back and play 10-12, but I ran into ANOTHER fivesome holding-up everyone on the back! Ugh. Pros down here don’t combine singles with twosomes or threesomes, or combine twosomes, so it’s easy to get logjams. 
Anyway, all of the extra practice will help, and I did find my iron swing late, so it was a good day.

Played yesterday and shot a 42/41.   Still working on my swing changes and that often results in some really bad shots.  Putting was so-so today.  Shot of the day was on the par 5 #16 where I hit a crappy drive into the trees, was able to punch out toward the green, then stuffed an 8 iron to 2 inches from the pin for the KP and bird.  My partner yesterday shoots 45/34 -- we were behind from #2 until #17 and ended up defeating our opponents.

Played again this morning. So far this year is starting off very promising. Yesterday I was coming up short but chipping and putting were good so I pulled off a 73 without any birdies. Today I was hitting longer and came in with a 71. Three bogeys and three birdies.  For the first time in years i had an opportunity for an eagle. But birdie was meant to be. 

Travel restrictions were lifted for work. So flying up to Kansas City for the week tomorrow. Probably sneak in some Top Golf.

That's a great early season round! I'm just happy to see you healed up and back out on the course.
