My wife and I played with the couple we usually play with on Sundays.  My wife played from the Forward Red tees, but the other lady played with her husband and I from the Blue tees.  Last week she shot 74 from the Red tees and her handicap dropped to a 5.  She usually outdrives me but she is also 22 years younger!!  She had one birdie but several bad holes cost her.

I birdied the first two holes.  Of course, I had to say: "I could break the course record theoretically." 😂  I was +6 over the next 7 holes for a 43. 🥴  On the par 5 #5 hole after a good drive, I forgot how to swing a club; made double with no penalties or bunkers.

The back nine was much better; one birdie and only 3 bogeys for a 37 and a round of 78.  The birdie came on hole #14, a short par 4 that is drivable for many players.   I don't normally try it but the tee box was up and the prevailing tailwind was maybe 15-20 mph.  Any shot short is in a huge bunker or if waaay right is wet.  I was in the sand.  My second shot was 15 feet to carry the sand and then about 35 feet to the pin that was on a lower shelf of the green.  The ball almost stopped where the green slopes down to the pin, but the wind helped it and I had a tap-in sandy birdie.

I love sandy birds!!

Unfortunately I don’t see many of them.

I love playing late afternoon 9s this time of year, I usually played some of my best golf when I’m out by myself and take my time a really work though my shots.

Keep this quiet but I 5 putted once 😱

it was probably 20 years ago but still remember, 7th hole at Hunter GC in CT.

after that I worked on becoming a good putter👍

I am a good putter.  I just didn't putt well on that hole that time.  It serves to remind me that I need to treat every putt with focus.

Had one of those "coulda shoulda" rounds yesterday....

Playing white tees with the usual crowd.  I've got the newly reshafted Mizunos in the bag, and all clubs but putter have GripMaster Roo grips.  Reshafted 3w, as well (good choice, as it happens).

Start the round with two low stress pars.  Hit PW on #3 to 10 feet, make the putt.  Ironically this is one of the holes I didn't birdie last year, a 120 yd par 3.  Go figure.  #4, par 5 into the wind, fan the six foot birdie putt.

Turns out, it was a sign, and not in a good way.  For the next five holes, I developed a Roberto Duran level of feel (for the younguns, he was known as having the Hands of Stone), no short game and three separate three putts.  I go from one under through 4 to a +5 front nine.  Cue the bad words.

Back nine, I start by chipping in for birdie.  Suddenly, my feel mostly returns, and while I don't make any more birds, I wind up shooting +2 on the back for a 77 (par 35 back side).

Of course, my first thought was the "what if" regarding holes 5 thru 9.   LOL

Golf.  A four letter word that was used because the others were already taken...

Played at Bent Tree, Sunbury OH with @MaxEntropy, his mate Mike, @Mr_Theoo and @Severtheties. I'll just say that it's a round for me best forgotten. Know idea what happened except for the swing change demon took full effect.

There wasn't a whole lot of pretty golf yesterday, but it was still a great time! Not sure what was up with my swing, but I blame my tweaked knee (we all have excuses, right?). Still tender and I just hope I am not engraining bad habits since I have been playing some decent golf over the last couple weeks. I ended up with 2 birdies, 4 pars, and 4 bogies. That means 8 holes were double, or worse (I managed to mix a quad in there).

Played a practice round with irons only.

 

I enjoy hitting different irons and different yardages into greens. Doesnt affect scoring too much either to be honest just sharpens up the longer irons and encourages more shot shaping.

 

Played well just over handicap but smiled most of the day. Putter even performed.

Played my 9 hole Saturday morning around without anyone. First off the tee in the morning -- but got maybe 5 hours of sleep when I needed 10 because of the weekday. Ended up carding a 45 despite feeling completely undepowered. Managed to get the second birdie of the year on 8 but took an awful bogey on 9.

My game has completely turned around now that I have confidence in my putter. Even my chipping and pitching is serviceable after a year in the wilderness. If it gets any better, I may be back to 4-5 years ago when I was playing about as well as I ever have.

Pretty normal for playing right after a lesson. I've got a lesson with Randy on the 3rd. I expect my game to get worse for a couple of weeks after.

I became a really decent putter after that.  I was just a few years into playing (started around 50 years old) and worked on short game.  It paid off and keeps me playing still in mid 70’s.

Just played my 1st tournament of the year.

It was brutal, steady 20mph winds and gusts up to 35mph. And it never stopped raining, damn, even with rain gear, I ended up with wet socks and underwear.

On several holes, you had to decide between holding on to your umbrella or to your clubs, but not both.

There was a hole where my driver went about 100 yards into the wind lol

Ended up shooting 100... honestly not bad for the weather conditions.

So this is my scorecard from Saturday under brutal conditions:

And this is the scorecard from today, same course combination A+B from the same set of tees. It was slightly windy, but sunny. Last hole: idiot me pulled my 3rd shot into the drink, dropped and chunked it and back into the water lol

Hottest day and worst round of the year yesterday. I was all over the place. Was trying out a new driver shaft and I abandoned it after 9. I keep hitting the ball on the toe and I need some range work (all I’ve been doing is playing mostly and putting at home). 
 

Also played a new course and it was a hike. Lots about the day was just weird. 
 

The mental side of my game was just nonexistent as well... But it was still a lot of fun. I was playing golf!! 😁

Monday morning Exec 9.  Greens were recently punched so putting was an adventure and led to 6 over and lost a ball.  Well maybe not lost I didn’t look for it as it wasn’t far from a Gator nest and my Momma didn’t raise me to go digging thru something that might kill my Ole arse.

It was my turn to have the SLOWEST, WORST player in Fl in our 4some.  Man it was brutal.  At one point he tried to play my ball after he hit his 2nd shot in the water.  He “forgot” that he was playing a white “MG” ball and mine was a yellow ProV1x.  He also drove thru a marked off “ground under repair” area, beautiful.
