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!

... It has been great to get back to feeling confident with my swing on the golf course. Had a very nice start to my round today with winds about calm to about 5 mph and I had 4 birdies with 1 bogie. Then the wind picked up quickly on #9 to about 20+mph and things got difficult as it was a swirling hard to judge wind. It's one thing to start with those kinds of winds an another to be playing well and have it suddenly appear after 8 holes. At least that is my excuse. [emoji56]

It wasn’t a bad late afternoon either! Got very hot with the putter. Made a bomb on 6 for birdie, 8 for par, 16, 17 and 18 for birdie for 73. Also my speed was spot on all day, lots of tap in pars.

I put hybrid in the 6 iron slot. Only hit it once but effectively on a lay up on a par 5. Smashed 5 wood all 3 times that I hit it - could really have used some sort of 3 wood on 17 - par 5 was 15 yards short with the 5 wood. :)

During my round Sunday, I got a chance to try out the GoPro I bought. I picked up a suction mount to attach it to the cart for its maiden voyage. I was planning on doing a rundown of every hole in the front, but the battery died in the sixth. I'm hoping to film some really bad course vlogs for my entertainment because it's just fun to film and edit. Here's a snippet from Sunday, the sound isn't the greatest because it was windy. 

 

Love my GoPro! Excited to get it out on the course again. The video shows off the image stabilization.

That's what has been so impressive so far is how stable it is. First day I got it, I walked outside and just looked around as I was walking. When I watched the video later, it was so smooth. I want to attach it to my car, but am just a little too paranoid about that.

A little bit of the old me showed up for today's round.  39/40.  Fairly consistent, although my driver did put in in at least 4 situations where I had to punch out to the fairway.  I did have one double bogey when I 3 putted a tricky green.  Putting was not really that sharp today.  Could have been a better score, but I'll take the 79 given what I've been shooting lately!

Congratulations on not shooting 84!

Played the Wolf game today at the other course in town.  I don't play there much, but I get to play for free with this group of guys.  Well, free if I don't lose a bunch of quarters!!  😂  Last week they played at my course and I shot 74 and took their quarters!  They wanted revenge, so we played at their course today.

A sunny 75º day with about 10-15 mph wind from the opposite direction from normal.  I drove the ball well; chipping and putting were OK except for one hole; in front of the green in two shots on the par 4 #16 and ended up with a double; my only one of the day.  I did have two birdies; almost got to the par 5 #3 in two shots... chip and a putt.  The other was on the par 4 #15; pin high on a green that slopes severely back to front; 12 footer left to right breaking about 3 feet.

Shot 80... 40/40.  A nice round for men on that course, but lost 2 quarters.  

TWO quarters?! Too rich for my blood. 😂

sounds like a nice round considering the wind!

Bodega Bay is the location where the 1963 Alfred Hitchcock movie, The Birds was filmed.  Just a bit of trivia from an old f@rt!!

And you if you want more Trivia, on your way up to Bodega Bay, via Point Reyes station, the town and the light house is where the The FOG was filmed. (it still looked the same when I lived there which was pretty cool)

That’s a very friendly game of wolf. Most times I play it with my long time group somebody is done $2 before the ball is in the hole on 1.

Its also usually and expensive day for someone since we do round robin team match and also skins

so the stability is good without a gimbal?

Here is the video I took just walking around in the yard. I was holding it with both hands but was impressed but it. When I had it on the golf cart I was using the suction cup mount, but it handled the bumps in the fairway pretty well.

Not bad!

Do you think an older model is just as good as the newer ones?

I would guess the Hero Black 7 would be as good, I think it was the first to have hyper smooth 2.0. I would be afraid to guess on anything else.

Played 9 earlier this week, and my instructor is going to be gifted (again) with a few select IPAs! It's taken me several months and many lessons but the progress is really starting to show out on the course 👍

From 140 and in I pretty much hit each shot pretty close to what I was hoping to achieve. Now, no absolutely not, I don't "expect" to do that every round (but at least now I know I can once in a while).

Chipping was also pretty good, and putting was pretty close but not quite but I'm happy enough with my distance control.

Tee shots, though.... First three were good but then .. but then .. just lost it... The old slice came back and I couldn't shake it, couldn't figure it out or fix it the rest of the round. So had a bunch of punch-out/recovery shots.

One of which was fun - after extremely slicing a tee shot into the next fairway, I found myself blocked by the row of tall trees between. Sure, I could try to punch out sideways back to the proper fairway, but .. where's the fun in that? 😉 Besides, I'm trying to learn what kind of shots I should .. and should not! .. attempt on the course so I grab the 7i, lean back a touch and give it a whack .. .. and watch it start online, just clear the tree top and come down about 20-25 yards in front of the green. Yeah!

Just missed making the up and down but happy to walk away with a semi-miraculous bogey.

Playing 9 this weekend so we'll see if we can keep _all_ parts of the game on the positive side of the ledger!
