The weather around here has been spectacular, I am glad I got out...but to sum up my actual play in 2 words? "Dog 💩"

2.jpg.9449a1061d5e067a669b457d1805d7ea.jpg

3 Fairways, 2 greens, 4 three putts and 2 penalties for a whopping 50. I also hit about 7 traps, if it wasn't 7 it sure felt like it.

I was in my own head the whole round and after hole 7 (6 and 7 were my only 2 good holes) I got a call from work that threw me way off once I finally got into a groove. Didn't even finish the last hole....I was probably not good company for @B.Bostontoday but I am glad I could provide a laugh at my expense and my foul mouth on the last 2.

While I didnt play well 6/7 showed me that A) planemate is working when I focus and stop worrying about outside factors and B) the shots were so crisp.

6-hit a somewhat heely drive 274, 9 iron in 2 putt par.

7-pured a 3 wood, little high but went 244, pured a 7 iron which was a little to much club but the way I was playing wanted to make sure I got it to the green. 2 putt from 15'

Your weather is pretty good.  I’m following the weather in CT as one Gdaughter is in the CIAC HS Tennis Tournament starting tomorrow and Gson the Baseball CIAC tourney.

Gorgeous course, and a stellar 3 wood there. That hole looks like it would not jive well with my game, between the bunker pinching off the landing area and the elevated/protected green.

So this is a course I’ve talked about in the northeast welcome thread. The track is one of the best around. Very New England style, tight fairways, tree line and elevated greens. Downside is it took a massive hit with management over the past 15 years. Past 3 the grandkids took it over and brought in a new head greens keeper and it’s taking form again. 
Rough is still poor and the traps are mediocre at best but the fairways and greens are getting back to the respectable course it once was.

The front 9 usually eats me up just because I can’t let the big dog eat, very pin point shots and I get frustrated being forced to lay up (grip and rip!) but I let it get the best of me today unfortunately

Played a scramble today for a local fundraiser.  We tried something different among the group.  Our spread was me as a 6, two guys who play to a 10 & 12 a real seasonal player that shoots 95-105.

 

I went first on all tee shots and approaches.  Normally I'll play as the anchor but Ive seen this before, putting the lowest handicap off first can sometimes be an advantage.  I wouldn't say it's foolproof but it definitely took pressure off the higher handicap guys.  They were looser and hit some pretty solid shots, in an event like this it was a good plan.  We finished third at -7 and took home a bottle of wine each.  The fun part is, 1st and 2nd place all get bottles of wine as a prize.  

 

The organizers did a really great job calming down the competition by putting the emphasis on play and we decided to try something a little different.  All funds go to the local child advocacy center so its a giant win win.  Super fun day, got a good tan and got to play a pretty decent course.

 

Can't wait to do it again next year.

Love a good scramble. That’s a good approach. By 10 my scramble plans are usually out the window after a couple cocktails! Nice shooting

It's good to see they're taking an approach that's starting to restore it to its former glory. From the looks of it, its off to a good start. There's nothing sadder than seeing a good course mismanaged and a shadow of its old self. 

One of my local courses has gone through the same thing. The guy that used to run it owns a holding company and he pooled his resources at the other courses he runs. He let the city take it back over a year ago. Now, a local guy took it over and it reopened earlier this year and he's gotten the greens looking great! I haven't gotten to play it, yet. I play a lot of solo rounds and tee times for loners start around 5 p.m., that's late for a guy that gets up at 3:30. 

I'm glad you were able to play, even if it wasn't your best day. Just being out on the course chasing that ball around is so much fun. 

That 3 wood was a bomb, btw.

Yes and I have a lot of fond memories when I was younger playing there so I keep playing it once or twice a year hoping it gets better. This year I have played 4 times already. The sign they are really turning around is there is a water feature on the 8th hole par 3, one of the more picturesque holes around, that feature has not ran in yearssssss and now it’s running so that’s very very positive IMO.

I still had a great day can just be frustrating looking back letting stupid stuff get into the old noggin

thank you. I actually caught it somewhat high on the face and hit it much higher than I normally do. Was a beautiful high draw though, piercing flight that I normally have I think would have been a PB with that club I caught it that flush.

It was a lot of fun. The group is a regular group of us who try to play 2-3 per summer and now that COVID rules have been eased it’s a lot easier / more comfortable for everyone.

Well as @Lacassem eluded to earlier we played a Thursday AM 9 hole round today.  I fared better than Mark but only slightly so.  I ended up with a 44.  Start off well with a Par after just missing the fairway, stroking a hybrid exactly where I wanted to and then an OK chip and two putts.  

Second hole is where the party started... Took out the same hybrid and wanted to hit the same shot... blocked it far enough right it deserved to be lost, and almost did the same with my provisional.  Thanks to significant clearing over the winter I found both.  Couldn’t get out of the crap and got a double bogey.  Actually got penalty strokes on the next two holes, one in the water on a par three (ended up double bogey), and one driving into the marsh/protected area on a par 5 and continued to compound mistakes (triple).  I almost never take driver there, as it is a risk,  But Arccos said go for it and I gave it a shot.  The issue is if you go left your cut off around 250 yards where the right gets down to 300.   I went left and flew into the crap.  Then I finally settled down and hit some decent shots going +1 on the last 5 holes.

Highlights:  Putting continues to be rock solid.  I had 3 1-putts and 6 2-putts.  I tested myself plenty as my first putts were not rolling to tap in territory.  I think I made 3 or 4 in the 6-8 foot range to avoid a 3 putt.  

The most impressive would be after this show on #8:

This wasn’t exactly the shot I was setting up for as the flag was on the far right, not the far left of the green.  Arccos had my distance to the hole as 67 feet.  I was able to knock the first to around 6 feet and made the second putt of par.

My best hole of the day came on #9, a downhill dogleg right par 4.  

Here’s the tee shot:

It was into a light wind that was also pushing a bit to the right.  I got plenty of height on this one which is something I have been working on.  From there I had about 115 to the flag.

I got too cute and came up a few paces short of the green and kicked right off the slope.  I took my 52* wedge and hit it in tight for an easy 1 foot tap in.  

Not a bad way to end the round.  Keeps ya wanting to come back for more! 

Nice swing on 9. I love the shape of that course btw.

Shot 86 today at Ballantrae in Birmingham, heat was killer. Should have done better, but I had the dreaded two way miss with the driver. 44/42. No birdies and 4 doubles, 2 on par 5s which is unacceptable. 
 

Good news is was able to putt pretty well to save some pars, but need to get better at short game to turn more bogeys into pars.

... Had one of my favorite to play rounds today that was on fire right from the start. My new Sim2 Max 3 wood arrived yesterday and I wanted to put it through a test today. I usually hit driver on 10 holes so I moved up one tee box and played my new 3 wood off those tees instead. First hole hit a nice drive followed by a 7 iron from 165 to 15' and made the birdie putt. It was my last hole left in the 2021 birdie challenge so off to a great start. Birdied #2 and drove the green on #8 a short par 4 with the Sim2 3 wood. Hit a big drive on #9 and just missed my 4th birdie with my 3rd lip out on the front zs the Greenskeeper must have been in a bad mood because the point were brutal. 

... Ran into 2 groups that stopped for snacks so came to a standstill on #10 and my back started to get tight and the magic was gone. Managed all pars til #18 and hit another big drive that ended up in the front of a divot. Really? Bogie free round and one of my best drives of the day deserved better but hey, that's golf ain't it. Squirted right into some grassy mounds and chipped to 5 feet but the putt broke much more than I thought and ended with my only bogie.

... The Sim2 Max is just insanely long for a 3 wood. I had 250 to the green on the last par 5 and came up 1yd short so 240 from the deck is big for me. On most of the tee shots (from 1 tee forward) I was as long or longer than my normal driver landing area so not only is the Sim2 Max easy to hit from the fairway it is crazy consistent off the tee as I only missed 1 of 10 fairways so to quote Eddie Money:

I think I'm in love
And my life's lookin' up
I think I'm in love
'Cause I can't get enough (no, no, no)
I think I'm in love
It's gotta be love

Great round!  Seems like Phoenix is treating you well! How do the courses compare from where you were in Chicago?

I played Cottonwood Hills in Bozeman today.  After 5 straight days of snow, sleet, and rain, I was eager to play.  Really nice weather; 46F when I started and 71F when I finished.  The Bridger Range was full of fresh snow and looked beautiful. I sure felt as though I played better than the 40/43 score, as that included 4 knock-out shots from under pine trees 😦.  I had three great drives that landed in the fairway but rolled off and found their way under.  They trim them up enough off the bottom that one can crouch and usually get a club on it - albeit with a real limited stroke.  Oh well, hopefully I've paid whatever dues owed to the golf gods.

... There is an elevation difference as well with Chicago 591' above sea level and Phoenix 1,201' so all good for seniors that like more distance. 🤪
 

That’s way up there.  I think the highest point around me is 82’.   Love the scenery in your photo.
