Here is my Hole of the Day... or How I played the par 5 #6...

  1. Tee shot - duck hooked to the upslope of the large grassy mound on the left
  2. 2nd shot - since on a severe upslope, I decided to hit driver off the deck; big mistake!
  3. 3rd shot - now I'm about where my normal tee shot lies; hit a low slicing 3W but miss two fairway bunkers
  4. 4th shot - hit a decent 9i that stopped 5 feet short of the green; green runs downhill to the middle of the green
  5. 5th shot - chip onto green and ball runs down the slope breaking 2 feet into the cup for par.

In other words, just like you planned it. 🤣

Great recovery!

Spring golf is weird, let's start with that. With swirling winds and temps fighting to stay above 50, I went out this afternoon. Apparently I am even worse of a wind player than I thought, very high ball hitter. The courses greens were recovering from punching, they were slow and almost no break.

Front 9 I shot 38, and only hit one green! 11 putts and 7/8 fairways. I wasn't hitting my irons bad, or even losing distance in the cool weather. It just seemed like every hole, I misjudged something or the wind changed after I set up. The first 4 holes on the back were the same, though I finally got a second green. I'm +2 through 13.

Then the last 5 holes took 2+ hours to play as a 4some of clowns had us stuck. So I finished bogey-bogey-par-double-bogey.[emoji2959][emoji2959]. Spent over 30 min on the 14th tee as it got colder and I got stiffer standing in the wind and setting sun. Lost the driver and 3 long holes dead into the wind, with a penalty. Short game wizardry stuck around as I only had 13 more putts for the back 9. 79 for the day, so it's more a what could have been type round.

For the CLE/AKR spies who may read this - why aren't the metro parks run by people who know anything about golf????? I love these courses, but every time I go there's always some kind of BS like this. I was at Seneca, they have 36 holes and they send 4 groups in a row down the same 9. What are you doing?????

Matchplay qualifiers yesterday and today.

Played yesterday and had a mare of a round. Since the start of the season I've been struggling with club head speed and hitting the ball fat. A fortnight ago I changed my setup opening my stance slightly and this initially resulted in better strikes and more consistency but I would get the occasional socket rocket and a drive coming off the heel. Yesterday it all fell apart, heels, thins, shanks, pulls, slices, duffed chips. Had an adventurous 11 on the 4th:

  1. Drive pulled off the heel into the woods, rechocies back into fairway.
  2. (in my head, take punishment and play to middle of fairway) 3w push and fade into bushes right.
  3. Penalty drop back 30 yds 
  4. Pull 3w left into trees
  5. PW I can get it over the trees, hits them square on after I thin the shot
  6. Punch out under the trees catches the bank of the ditch but stays out
  7. 40 yd pitch caught heavy and rolls off the  front
  8. Chip caught heavy rolls off front
  9. Chip caught heavy and just stays on
  10. Putt lips hole
  11. In the hole

My playing partner usefully pointed out that I had just used all my strokes on the one hole. 

Out in 47 back in 41 for 88, net 82.

Decided not to play in the other qualifier today, may spend some time on the range.

It's a course owned by the metro parks in Cleveland, OH. The city ran it for years and it was a burnt out hack around. About 7 years ago the metro parks took over management and restored the entire 36 holes, it's gorgeous now. It's a old school layout that stretches to 7100+. It's my favorite type of course, one that is tough but not tricked up. Everything is in front of you and you just have to go get it.

It's official, I've hit the lowest point of my golfing life. I played nine holes today and it started out great, I was one over through the first two holes and then it all went south. 

I had scores of 10, 13, and 15 on three holes, the two par 5's and the par 4 7th. The driver was a superstar, I didn't hit but one fairway, but I was striping the ball. I had a couple of drives that approached 240. Where I got into trouble was with my approach game. I don't think I've ever shanked so many in my life. I don't think I hit one iron shot solid. The par 4 was completely a mental breakdown in my part. My second shot was shanked into some high grass and lost. I dropped and tried to play a 5 iron punch through some trees and ended up in high grass that took several shots to get out of. I finally hit one backwards to get back in the fairway. 

I ran into trouble also on the par 5 6th, shanking one that brought the pond into play where I promptly hit two balls into it. It just wasn't my day.

I'm almost embarrassed to post my score, but for those of you wondering, it was 69.

It'll get there, I feel I'm close and was happy to be playing on a beautiful 70 degree day.

Had some hit or miss holes today. Would go from a par to a double to a birdie. I putted well on the fast greens but only scored a 99 on a course I typically come close to breaking 90 on. I had a really bad ball striking day but I also wasn’t swinging full speed which I never do my first round of the year. Picked up my speed as I went and got some distance back. Need to hit the range to work on some things I barely hit my bay fade today i was hitting more draws which I don’t enjoy doing unless I need to

That's the side effect from listening to the Chasing Scratch podcast, they used "Hey Wayne" in one of their episodes and it cracked me up.

I'll be good, what I'm taking away from the round is my driver was good and I forgot to mention I putted decently. I had 19 with two three putts and one 1 putt. 

I came home and stuck the scorecard on my bathroom mirror, a la Rocky in Rocky 4 to motivate me.

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...  

IMG_1402.jpeg.7c81ba79af2f50dfdea551527a529c36.jpeg

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.
