Kenny B Posted April 18, 2021 Share Posted April 18, 2021 Today I was the token male in our group. Two couples we usually play with had AWOL husbands; one still recovering from knee replacement and the other left today on a business trip. So, the better halfs joined my wife and I. I struck the ball better today than yesterday, but putting was not very good. Our greens still show signs of being punched, and if the ball is not struck firmly, it comes up short or catches the edge of a punch hole and drifts off one way or the other. 40 (+3) on the front; should have been one shot better. Not being fully stretched out, I didn't rotate very well on my wedge approach to #2 and like @sirchunksalot I shank the ball over a large grassy mound... led to a bogey on the hole at my course I birdie the most. 38 (+3) on the back for a 78. I did make a tap-in birdie on the par 4 #14 after lipping out a birdie putt on #13, then lipped another birdie putt out on #15. Finished with a bogey on the par 5 #18 after a great drive to the middle of the fairway at the dogleg. Tried for the green from here... but came up short in the bunker; ended up bogeying the hole. I have never tried for the green in two shots because I don't hit the ball far enough to have this look, mostly because of the prevailing wind. I usually have to play a draw around that tree and end up in the fairway bunker.
