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!

played 9 this morning at a new to me course. 

43, 7/7 fairways, 2/9 greens, 18 putts

driver was on fire, approach shots weren’t. now that i hit a reliable draw, i have to adjust my setup to accommodate for it. i was going right at flags and ending up pin high but left. 

Important question did you have any 3 putts or all 2fers?

... I m surprised at the amount of rabbits I see daily. I grew up in the country and never saw as many as here in Phoenix on golf courses. One tee box at Aguila has at least 10-15 daily on the far back tips that are never used. I almost always eat an apple and break up the core and distribute it on that tee box for a rabbit treat.

My High School mascot was a jackrabbit 🤦‍♂️. Kinda humiliating when all of our rivals were "Toros", Tigers, Mountain Lions, Warriors, Hawks, etc.. but it was more than fitting for our geographic. 

Now just wait until you pull up to a tee box to find a javelina that doesn't feel like going anywhere. That happened to us once out in Gold Canyon. We ended up hitting from the ladies tees because we knew who was boss in that moment. 

Those rabbits are crafty man. They know golfers are usually walking around with stuff like apples, granola bars, sunflower seeds, or other little munchie snacks. Birds are even worse. We've had crows and even hawks fly off with bags of jerky, seeds, etc that are tucked in the basket inside a grocery bag. In the moment it's like wow look at that bird.. and then you're like wait.. gimme back my Jack Links you turd!

Another day of so-so golf ... putting that was "almost", missing fairways, missing greens.  Eeked out a 82, but the double on #18 was disappointing  (pulled my approach shot and it nestled up on the backside of a tree, leaving no shot at all, then having a delicate shot to the upper tier where the pin was, with the slope going away from me -- the double explains how well I handled that shot)

... I'll try and beat that. We were called the Whirlies with a tornado like smiley face thing. We hated it and my senior year we got a new head coach that made us scream "Be Rough, Be Tough, Be A Whirlie!" Talk about humiliating. Thankfully He wanted to start a sophomore at QB and actually told us the next 2 years would be "throw away years" til his offense became established. So seniors waiting for their chance were SOL. What a moron. He wanted me to play safety and I already had offers at QB, the only position I had played since the 2nd grade. I transferred to a county school and became a Hornet LOL.

Completely utterly confused by this ridiculous game.  Had 4 penalties off the tee today.  All other aspects of my game were lights out and I ended up with a one over par 73.

I wonder what part of my game I should work on?

The game of golf is a fickle mistress.  Yesterday I played and shot the worst score I have made in 5 years, 87 with 6 three putts.  Today I played the same course with the same foursome from the same tees and shot 71.   We play it down and bet heavily so no gimmies or mulligans.  

This game is crazy sometimes.  The major difference was simply confidence in my putting.

I am going to say this and it just may be me, but changing he font to cursive makes you post more difficult to read.  Staying with the standard font is probably best.

Played 9 last night but due to it being packed only got in the holes 1-7 and since we were walking we played hole 12 a par 3 which is next to the clubs house on our way back in. Played absolutely terrible ... I just kept topping the driver .. my irons and putting were good .. and chipping with my 58 was money but 54 is just giving me trouble lately .. so need to work on some things at the range. .. but with all that said still had a lot of fun getting out and walking to course ..golf is a beautiful insane frustrating game ...

83 yesterday after a week long rainout. Course was still soft but I walked and my pants/shoes weren't muddy at the end, so not bad, just no roll. As the season started I've struggled with consistency in set up, leading to not hitting shots I want. Then I played like crap 2 rounds in a row.

Penick says play bad once forget it, play bad twice review basics of grip and stance. I'd been messing with my stance without checking my grip. On the 8 hole I looked down and see the V on my left hand pointing straight up. I normally have a very strong grip with Vs to the right of my right shoulder. So rotated my hand over and it was like an old friend returning. All of a sudden the high draw is back.

I went with the PtxPro 4 iron. While I liked the Utility iron, it seemed a little “big”, and out of place. It was easy to hit tho, but not as “precise” if you will, as the PtxPro. I’m just hitting laser shots with that. The utility was a beast off the tee too..

one of my buddies got the hybrid with his “combo” set, and he can’t quit gushing about that...🙄  Maybe because he doesn’t have the other choices. He moved to Florida so I didn’t have a chance to hit it, but hybrids didn’t seem to stay in my bag anyways.

now, ..... I didn’t hit that cart with a ball, it was like that when they assigned it to me yesterday😆

I remember saying you were fond of the ptx head so it’s nice to see it found a home. Also a huge atta boy to Ben Hogan for making that happen. 
 

Play well, maybe we should reignite that testing thread a little for old times sake.
