Tee game was awful, but managed to scrape around an 8-over 78. First tee I legit toe shanked my driver like 150 yards into the middle of the adjacent fairway. Hit a 7-iron just wherever I could manage to get it back on the correct hole, and stiffed an 8-iron to a foot for an unlikely par. Reached the par 5 3rd in 2 shots so I thought my day was about to turn around, and then 3-jacked for par. The rest of the day was one really nice birdie on a 228y par 3, and a bunch of scrambling. First time I've shot consecutive rounds in the 70s, albeit this was a par-70 so idk if that still counts.

In other news, my Bushnell has a brown dot in the viewfinder now, almost exactly on the reticle. From what I read, possibly from overexposure to sun rays? Guess I'm in the market for a new one.

Still nice shooting @B.Bostonhad a similar spot on his range finder, we were thinking possible mold spore maybe? He got it replaced, wonder if ya could get Bushnell to do the same. Unless it’s pretty old

Another out of sync day on the course and poor ball striking.  Rather than just letting my swing flow, I'm forcing it.  I know better, but....  Flying out tomorrow to play in a member-guest with my prior neighbor and best friend -- Diamante CC in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas -- I'd better get my act together.  Practice round Wed, then 3 days of tournament play (better ball, modified Stableford, and Scramble).  Looking forward to playing!

I wish you would get back in sync.  You seem to be rubbing off on me!!  Everything is out of whack!!  And I'm trying to get my swing back in sync for the MGS PNW outing in Spokane starting tomorrow.  

It all started for me last Monday at our Memorial Day couples net better ball.  I didn't hit the ball very well at all, but managed an 82 through some decent scrambling.  My wife didn't play well either.  We managed to finish T-12 at -3, but a "normal" round for us should have been at least -6.  Winning score was -10.

Yep, started this week for me, too.  Last weekend, I struck the ball well.  This weekend, it was like a foreign entity inhabited my body --- one that had never played golf before.  🙂

Not how I played but a comment on some of the up and coming young stars in the game. I volunteered at the SoCal Drive, Chip, and Putt competition over the weekend. Saw some promising young talent. Saw a 15 year old girl drive 240 yards consistently. Saw some 12-13 year old boys hole out their chips from just off the green. N doubt we will be seeing some of these kids on the college circuit and then Korn Ferry and eventually the PGA Tour in the future!

The return to warm and windy conditions meant an early start to the 18 hole round at the local college track just west of the city. Everything was just a little off but the putter continues to be my most baffling stick. Speed, a slight pull, and just a huge lack of confidence are hurting potentially decent scores. I plan to hit the putting green for practice soon or it is going to be a very expensive golf trip coming up.

44/47 for my splits with a variety of penalty strokes and missed opportunities. 

A couple things to remind myself of though...

* Intermittent fasting is not a good idea to stick to when you are playing an early round and need energy.

* New clubs take some time to get used to and I think my higher than normal scores this season prove that out. Rebuilt most of my bag during the offseason and learning the new distances/trajectory/flight path take time especially when 9 holes every other week is the norm.

Still love the game, but right now I am struggling to like it 🙂

Nice! You catch any monsters? I know Casitas is renowned for some big bass. 

Anymore, an 8 lb’er is a pig. Since the trout plants stopped years ago, I think there was a big fish die off, and getting a fish over 10 is a super rarity. The biggest fish this season was a 5.99.

we had the 2ond big fish at 5.00. Just a numbers game now, and ya gotta churn thru a lot of fish to cul up to a good bag. We were just on em this day, probably caught around 30 fish...

I was cooking through 9 yesterday with a 41 unfortunately I had a bad stretch of holes from 14 on and a triple bogey on 18 that left me with a 49 of the back. Not a terrible day but I wish I could have held up on the back by 3-5 less strokes. Me and my partner had a top 10 2nd day finish and for the tournament we finished 17th. A decent first day would have put us easily into the money for finals standings. All in all a great weekend and a lot of lessons learned. Having a hard time getting over the some issues. Seems like no matter the tees or distance I am making just as many mistakes putting and hitting greens in regulation. My front 9 I capitalized on both. The back 9 seemed like I was slogging though it with no rhythm

... Well it's 2021 and I have seen too many stories about golfers pulling guns. Seen it twice here in Phoenix so you never know who you are gonna run into on a golf course. Played with a guy from Low-weesy-ana that was all of 5'9" and 150 and when I told him the story of the 250lb guy hitting me and not apologizing but saying if the ball hadn't hit me he would be 50 yds further down the fairway so we both lose, the ex-cajun pulled a Glock out of his bag and said he would stand like this (gun at his side) and say "You ready to apologize now MF!?" Reminded me not to confront idiots on the golf course. 

Obviously not a trained CCW guy. Real training with firearms teaches the opposite of that type of behavior. You’re right- never confront idiots - not only on the track, but everywhere. Unfortunately, people like that do nobody any good, including themselves...

... Played golf in Chicago for 35 years and only saw one guy take a gun out of his bag. Showed it to the guys hitting into them and they retreated and he put it back in his bag. Phoenix is a different animal and already saw 2 in 5 months. I am not a gun owner but I do believe most owners are responsible about ownership. That said it only takes one yahoo to end a life and muni golf is filled with yahoos. I love the variety of playing many different courses but for the first time I am seriously looking at joining a private or semi private club.

Yeah I reached out to them to see how much it would cost me. If it's going to be like $50 or so I might do it. I bought it on Father's day 2017 so it almost lasted exactly 4 years, not too bad.

Dang, really? I guess the old "they don't make em like they used to" adage applies here? My mom's cousin has an old-school binocular one that still works.
