One of our Saturday game golfers emailed me yesterday saying he was walking 9 at Plantation Palms. So I decided to join him. PP is a hilly course for Florida with a lot of walking between holes. U shot a 45 with a penalty on the #7 par 3 which is 150 yards with all carry over water.  3 FIRs & 6 GIRs, that’s 20% fewer FIRs than average and 40% more GIRs than average. Longest drive was 234! 
 

This was the first time I walked the front nine and I enjoyed the walk.

Walking is great for old men!  Keeps the the ole body oiled and the heart ticking strong.  I walk 54 holes each week and although I do feel a little sore post round, I can feel the benefits.

Played last night after work with a couple of buddies. I was driving the ball great and I usually am pretty inconsistent off the tee. Typically my short game is pretty good but yesterday it was rough to sugar coat it. Just one of those days. Still pretty happy to shoot an 89. If I can get both the short and long game tightened up a bit I've got a new personal best in my near future!

I’ve got to tell you guys, I love reading this thread and following your games. 
There are some who amaze me with how good they are, and how consistently well they score.

Then there are those who struggle at times to improve, which a lot of us can relate to. I find myself looking forward to their posts the most, because I’m rooting so hard for them to improve, and get to where they want to be in this game. They deserve it because they’re working as hard as the best players here, and are also incredibly supportive to others when they have a bad round..

We are lucky to have a great group of guys in this community, but that’s especially true in my two favorite threads, this one and the “What did you buy?” It’s nice to have a place to commiserate and share a few laughs! 

well said, and a really nice sentiment

Golf has bee a struggle lately and I have been really frustrated.   Generally just terrible play mostly with the irons.    Tonight was league night and I was scheduled to play and to be honest I was dreading playing before the round.    Things turned out pretty well  4 FWs (missed one long), 5 greens, 17 putts for a 38.    Had a few bad shots and a few mental lapses but overall it was a big improvement from how I have been playing.   Looking forward to this weekend to see if I can continue the improvement. 

Nice playing, glad to hear it

@rbsiedsc brought his buddy from work and they both pounded the ball waaaay past me!!  I had a great time!!  Might not have looked like it at times, but that's typical of my play on a course I am not familiar with and also with conditions I am not familiar with.  I have to say that I have never walked 9 holes on a course before where my pant legs were soaking wet; and I was in the fairway... mostly!

Didn't keep score.  Not sure what I shot, but I did have two pars!  I was playing a new driver I bought yesterday, and I really didn't have the confidence I do with my old driver.  I started feeling better with it on the last few holes.  My wife told me that we are playing at 8am tomorrow, so I will see how it performs on familiar turf.

 

I should say, though, you were mostly in better spots than us all day. And your short game was top notch.
