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!

... So true. It would also be nice to have a private jet to fly back and forth between the 2.  AND have a personal chef and a masseuse while we are at it! 🤑

You forgot the trophy wife. Gotta have the trophy wife.... 😉

After a two week hiatus due to rain and cold I got back out yesterday. Didn't sleep well Saturday and woke up with a knot in the hamstring and some low back tightness.

Ended up carding a 50 where nothing went right. Missed putts (lots of 30 footers left to 6-7 feet), multiple blown chips, a few really nice irons followed by duds of chips/pitches. Basically everything was out of whack. Think I'm going to go on a stretching/rolling program to try to get my lower area back to order.

Another round that was slow to begin with then , settle in and managed to put in a good score. Chipping and putting continue to be good, need to commit to some shots and not get greedy.

Early morning Exec 9 on a course new to us with cart bridges now open.
55* with light breeze & blue sky. 1st 3 holes directly into the sun and not knowing the layout made it a bit tough on the Par 4’s. I lost a ball on 2nd hole into the sun and couldn’t find it, group in back of us picked it up in middle of fareway. Never looked there.
Loved the course, hit ball well (+4) and looking forward to next time there.
It is 5.5 miles by cart and 20 minutes, not bad ride.

... I have made some golfing friends here in Phoenix but since I play 6 times a week I still play about 70% of my rounds as a single. Almost always have good playing pards but my luck ran out yesterday. First some lady from KC in her 70's found out I was from Chicago and wanted to talk politics ... sigh. Told her I wasn't interested in a political discussion on a golf course in 100* heat but that didn't stop her so I avoided being near her as much as possible. But the killer was a s-l-o-w golfer that was THAT GUY. Every decent shot he hit he screamed stuff like "That is a perfect shot!" or "Should be a birdie!" even though it was hit thin and rolling towards the green and finally rolling over the back. I could live with that but every bad shot, and there were many, he cringed in pain because of his torn labrum with the muscle completely disconnected from the bone. The head scratcher of course is good shots did not seem to bother his shoulder at all and on one really good one he lifted both arms over his head yelling "Beat that!" but when he topped 2 shots in a row explained to us that he can't lift his arm above chest high and swinging the club can be very difficult. And I mean we got a sermon on every bad shot and a dissertation on every good shot. 

... After a 2:20 minute front 9, again in 100* heat, he went to get a hot dog and a beer while the political lady said she was going to the ladies room and we should tee off and they would catch up. Our 3rd was her grandson and a pleasure to play with but instead of hitting he went to some shade from a tree and buried his head in his cell phone. So I teed off and never saw them again until the 18th tee and when I saw them approach the 17th tee, even though I waited on every tee from 13 to 18. 

... Quite frankly I am amazed I don't run into more unpleasant players on muni courses but it just goes to show that most golfers are just good people and I rarely have pards I do not enjoy sharing 4-4.5 hours with. 

There’s always that 10% lurking out there[emoji33]

Hey, sorry you got the shaft with the playing partners, and not sure the appropriate thread to share the feedback...but you were dead on in recommending the DHY.  Love that club...remarkably forgiving and workable at the same time, and useful for a ton of shots.  My only problem now is I bought the 22 degree 4, and now I want to kick out my TS3 3h and replace it with another DHY!

'THAT GUY' must be a snow bird because I am sure I have played with him in the summer time here.

We got out for what started as 9 today but since we played the 'front' in 1:15 we kept going.  We started on the back to avoid a 4 car pileup on the first tee and as expected things slowed down when we came back around to 1.  Beautiful 60* temps but pretty windy....about 15mph over there.  I went 38 / 41 with two doubles on our second 9. 

Greens had been aerated and sanded and i was pretty consistent leaving all my putts 2 - 3 foot short.  I was real happy with the iron play today, felt like good compression on contact and the distance and lines were pretty good.  I had 12 GIR & two others just off the fringe and I failed to get either up & down.....short on both the chip & putt.  Only three drives that got me in trouble where I tried to flight those down into the wind and came right over the top and hit them low, left and hooking, that is a bad combo!  

Frustrating hole of the day....Hole 1, I finally figure where to cut the corner and end up in the middle of the fairway with only 65 yards into the wind but between clubs.  I should have used the longer club because it took me 5 shots to get it in the hole from there for a double.  😡   

Overall a pretty good day for this early in the season so the winter net work must be paying off!

Played today for the first time in a few weeks. Beautiful Day, the pro comped our round (he rents a room from my friend and will be getting a nice bottle of vodka from me for it). Rusty but reasonable 40 on the front. Very solid 37 on the back, several good irons, a 30 foot birdie putt, a couple of good chips and some great drives. I’ve been practicing and it showed.

We picked up a single on 12 - he plays golf for the local D2 team. Really nice kid - he appreciated playing with us as much as we enjoyed watching him play.

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

I was able to play a full 9, then because it was so slow, I re-played the front. Ball striking with irons and wedges wasn’t good, but the driver was incredible! The combination of the 10.5* loft and using a Pro V1X Left Dash was seriously legit! It was nice to finally play a “dry” course to see how the driver can perform. 
Shot of the day was a 58* wedge from 60 yards out, up-and-over two huge oaks!!! Hit it to 6 feet.

Work it being a beautiful 70 degree day, I took the opportunity to get out and at least get nine holes in. After my range session yesterday, I was feeling like I could conquer the world. I had an 11:50 tee time and when I got there the starter told me if I wanted, I could play immediately if I started on the back. 

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 went severely downhill from there. 

Shot a 59, I don't have Arccos stats for the third straight round as it wasn't picking up shots. But I'll tell you that the only thing I had going for me was my greenside wedge game. Driver wasn't horrible, but I can't say it was spectacular either. I almost walked of the course in the 14th it was so bad and by the 17th I was ready to throw my clubs off a cliff with them on fire. 

Then I got to the last hole where I hit a good drive, a decent 3 wood, then I shanked a 6 iron and a wedge. I got to the ball, settled down thinking about the Planemate and exiting low and hit the flag from here.20210404_131528-01.jpeg.4076fdc973f05a51fcacd6c3ff674ac9.jpeg20210404_131614-01.jpeg.3f1cb543ce6fc10aa9d22c7805ba286b.jpeg

Tapped in for bogey, but left the course feeling better about my game. That's the beauty of this game, you can go from I don't know why I'm doing this to I love this game!

Went to the range afterward to work things out and hit a bucket and a half. I hit more good shots than bad and am looking forward to the next time I get out to play. Met a guy there named John and really enjoyed talking to him. He was absolutely crushing a Ping G425 and I had fun talking about his fitting for it and golf nerdery in general. 

 

That tree - no big deal, it would play right into my lefty power fade (re:slice)😜
