Old and crumpled is potentially better than new and crisp, less likely to be counterfeit 😁

You got it!!  Old and crumpled!  New and crispy was gone a long time ago!!

So I played my first round since November and obviously my first round post Covid setback. 
 

I guess the fact I am able to play and that I finished 18 holes is a something to be pleased with and I am.   But it proved post Covid game snd strength and stamina both have a long way to go.   
 

I’ll post the 109 i shot here as hopefully it will be something I can quote this post in 3 months or so and see how far I came in the comeback.  
 

It was filled with penalty strokes (11) as I just didn’t have the strength or distance to carry some hazards—and I even played the Senior Tees which are about 5800.   Drove the ball horribly—except for the last hole...isn’t that the way it always goes.  Iron  play tough to judge as I had many hybrids and 5 woods in for second shots.  But it was Ok for the first round with the irons. 
 

Putter was actually pretty good. Put the old reliable Tyne 4 in play over my two new ones, as I wanted to have at least one club I had confidence in.

I was totally exhausted by about the 13th hole.  But I managed to keep up and the guys I played with were great in knowing my circumstances. 
 

I need more time on the range obviously and a workout of sorts to build some strength back up. 
 

But hoping to make strides from here  

 

 

 

That’s great!

109 after all you’ve been thru is pretty good.  Just don’t overdo it and you’ll be in the 80’s in no time.

Glad to have you back👍

New to me course, with probably the best tee to green game I've ever had - just didn't have it going with the flat stick.

41/42: 83 (+11, net +1)

9/16 FIR

9/18 GIR

37 Putts 😱

I missed 10 putts within 20 feet either for birdie or to save par - and putting is usually my strength! I don't expect to even hit the majority within that range, but there were a ton of make-able looks that just didn't go down. I started off with bad reads, and towards the end of the round just started to doubt the line.

However, my tee and approach game was phenomenal. I had one driver I lost OB right on the front, everything else was really really tidy (for me). Irons were really pure and I was really consistent off the tee mostly with my driving iron but solid when I pulled driver too. I'm a little bummed I couldn't take advantage on the greens, but to score 1 over my HCP on a new course I really can't complain too much no matter how it happens!

Played a short, par 34 course today - it's a pretty nice layout and is home to the Akron First Tee. Only 1 par 5 and three par 3's. Most of the par 4's are in the 280-300 range, so I used 3W on every hole but the par 5. Managed to hit all 6 fairways! I was left with a lot of partial wedges that weren't all that great. Ended up +4 (thanks mostly to ending up in bunkers in two of the par 3's), but really pleased with the way I was hitting 3W (and the one driver).

Happy birthday, @Kenny B!

That folks is a big green check mark for a 2021 golfing goal!

I managed to finish the front 9 today at -1 for a 35. 2 FIR(lol) 4 GIR(including 1 GUR) 13 putts. 

I was trying to hurry a little as this started happening on #6 so I figured I better stop since there was hail being reported with the storm. 39202A99-93E4-4656-B349-56137DDE9212.jpeg.1751ad162238a929c7126713708452e2.jpeg

Great score with the tee troubles! We’re you just off the fairway? 
 

probably best to head in at the turn with those skies!

Yeah I was just into the first cut on 3 of the misses and got super lucky on the other 2 to have an opening to advance it close to the green which resulted in nice chips and 1 putt pars. 

The weather actually only kicked up for about 10 minutes. All we got was some wind and maybe 5 minutes of rain. Too bad too cuz the way I felt I think I woulda shot under 70 if I coulda cleaned up the driver a little.  
 

Oh well I guess there is always next time

Congratulations on the under par 9! It's a shame you couldn't continue with the round, but at least you'll go into the next one with positivity.

Thanks. I will definitely be riding high when I get out again and hopefully I can carry over the good play as well.

Shot even par today with 3 birds and an eagle. My wedge game is 💩. I putted well; drove it well and somehow could not hit a wedge. Highlight of the day was the slam dunk flop shot on 13 after a 338 yard tee shot just short of the green side bunker.

Late recap - 5/14/21 RTJ Oxmoor Valley, Ridge

86 (42/44); 5 FIR; 7 GIR; 35 putts; 10 chips; 1 Bird; 3 penalties

First round in a month where I couldn't find my driver swing. Felt like I just lost the feel but it made me go with a fairway finder hybrid off the tee a few times, which turned out really well. I'll be playing this shot more. Putter finally got hot on the back 9 and started make some putts. Short game is slowly getting there. Irons were pretty good. 1 hosel rocket which lead to a penalty but the other 2 penalties were just dumb mistakes. Not necessarily bad shots.

Biggest goal was achieved - have fun. A very enjoyable walk with the sun setting.

Carl Spackler thinks you should have kept playing since you had a career round going..
