I haven't played since I got back from Monte's clinic on Tuesday.  I've been on the range, and it hasn't been pretty... well, maybe pretty ugly.

Meanwhile, my wife played in the Ladies league on Wednesday morning and this morning.  She had made us a tee time when we got home from SoCal for today, but the earliest time we could get was 1:22pm.  She finished her 18-hole round at 11am; I met her for lunch, then we went back to the course for our tee time.  She hit some career drives; much further than anything I've seen since we joined this club.  I guess she really got something out of Monte's clinic... I'm in big trouble.  😬

Based on your writeup, she was talking with Monte and you were worried about balls falling from the upper deck.  Maybe you will focus on the right things next time 😃

After six years of playing, I got my first hole in one yesterday! Pretty crazy feeling to see the ball drop from the tee box. It was a slight downhill par 3 from 150 yards, got it done with a 9 iron!

Wednesday morning 9, little cloudy, light breeze & 78*.
Nice 39, +3. That was with 1 bird.
Had one stupid a$$ double, great drive then a “skull & run” over the green into the garbage. From a par to 2 over in one easy stroke.

Man, all the posts in here about leagues has me itching to find a spot where I could join one. My area’s lack of public/semi-private/affordable courses is a killer

is that Colonial Springs? 

@cksurfdude also...

Is that the one just past the cemeteries? I haven’t played there in years if it’s the one I’m thinking of.

it used to be semi private, and when Bethpage was too crowded, we’d head over there, and usually got out right away. Now when I’m up on the Island, I just book a time out East.

Could be.  Apparently... my head turns and follows the club on the backswing.  Monte was amazed that I hit the ball at all that way.  I never knew it, but my wife says: "Oh yeah!!" to which I said: "Well, why didn't you mention it?"

So, I've been working on not tracking the clubhead, and now I'm mishitting the ball.  It got very ugly this week on the range... embarrassing actually.  In the 9 holes I played today, I wasn't thinking about what my head was doing and struck the ball OK except for 2 shots in the fairway; shot +5 with a double (I think I thought about it, maybe a little 😳)

Had a tough first nine yesterday, 44 which is 8 over (bye bye handicap already 😭) but then settled down to a two over 39 on the back. 83 is ok but should have been better.

I shot an 86 yesterday from 6900ish yards on a 73.7/126 rated course.  I've played it better, but this is the best round I've put out for a while.  Putting was not there today.  I had 36 putts with three 3 putts.  I had one birdie on the 3 handicap hole, a 550ish yard par 5. 


Headed back out today to try to play well again.  Today's course is par 70, 6700ish yards, 72.6/118.  I feel like the slope should be a bit higher.

Didn't keep score today. It was my first time out with my new iron shafts (Accra 95 ICWTs) and the greens were just punched earlier this week.

Struggled for the first few holes. Was hitting my irons with the new shafts thin. I almost never hit the ball thin, almost always fat. These shafts are 20 grams lighter than what i was playing previously.

Later on in my round, started to hit my irons really well. Was hitting GIRs, and having birdie looks. Didn't make any of those birdie putts with the punched greens.

My ball flight was significantly better with the Accra 95s, nice higher trajectory (i need height) but also stronger ball flight. With the Modus 120s, I felt like i was always hitting weak, low iron shots. I know shafts aren't supposed to make a huge difference, but the new shafts made a really big difference. I think the Modus 120s were too heavy for me.

I've probably mentioned that I hate number 10. I mean really, really hate it. The tee shot has trees lining the left of the fairway and the hole slightly doglegs left. 20201012_195051-01.jpeg.6613d35726760d2db9a99e7f1c2fb10e.jpeg

This shot intimidates me, I'm not going to lie. To make it worse, this is my first shot of the day. I hit the fairway, and that was the highlight of my round.

It's Chatata Valley here in Cleveland. The other local course opened back up a couple of weekends ago, but this is the nicer one in town.
