Knew I should have fielded bets! Sometimes luck overtakes skill still a good round, solid GIR!

😂😂😂

I had forgotten you specifically called out a sub-80 round. Glad I could make that happen!

I'm finally starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel! It's probably been close to a year since my game started taking a nosedive, but today showed the most promise yet that I might finally be making a return to form.

Played bright and early this morning as a single and carried my bag. I was paired with another single who was in a cart. The starter called us to the 1st tee early and then had the next group go off right after us for some reason which meant I immediately felt rushed. Found the fairway with my drive though, but had tree trouble. I intended just to play a low pitch with my 9 iron, but opened it up through impact and shot it up into the tree. I never saw where it went and spent maybe 30 seconds looking before dropping a fresh ball down with the group behind already waiting in the fairway. 🙄 Opened up again and missed right, hurried up for a chip and a few putts to finish the opening hole +3 (I wound up finding my original ball in a better lie than where I dropped so I chose not penalize myself under the circumstances). From there I'd play the rest of the front at -1 (two birdies, five pars, one bogey)!!!

Unfortunately, the stellar play wouldn't hold up on the back 9 and I basically wrote it off. My playing partner wasn't much help with pace or any help at all when it came to finding wayward drives. Wound up claiming 2-3 lost balls that disappeared into the rough. Those balls probably could've been found, but it never seemed to occur to the guy that we both might have a better time if he took 2 seconds to help identify my ball while he was 100 yards ahead of me... Perhaps, it's just my fault for not asking him to help, but the only time we were ever in close proximity was on the green (if he waited for me). I told the guy at the first tee not to let me hold him up since I was walking. Let's just say it was all quite awkward.

Now that I'm starting to see some progress in my game, I'll be returning to my "home" course where I never walk and would have to deal with such an issue. I've just been trying to save $ because nothing's worse than paying ~$60/round and feeling terrible about the experience every time you finish.

EDIT: In regards to pace, I should add that the round was not exactly slow. We had a foursome (maybe a fivesome, couldn't quite tell) in front of us and still made the full loop in 3 hours and the nines were evenly split @ 1:30/1:31.

Played at Plantation Palms today as we were rained out on Tuesday…I pulled my 3W, changed my 20* 6W to 18* 5W and dropped a 7W into the bag.  I got it as a mystery club from Patriot Golf.  That said, I choked down on it and striped it on the 162 yd Par 3 #7 hole today, then from a foot off the green, drained my ER2 putter some 15 yds away!  So my numbers today were 42/48:90. Really had trouble on back nine with 5 doubles…..Ugh!

Patriot 3w!  Had a guy play with our group a while ago and he had 3 Patriot woods and he was killin them 👍

Just an absolute gorgeous day in New England.

Didn't play as well as I would have liked but CT National is a true hidden gem. The conditions are as good (or better) than some private courses in the area and only 49 on a very walkable track. 

Paired up with another single who shot 74 from the tips. 🤯

Played there once several years ago!  Such a nice track. I need to get back there. Get those tuneup rounds in before NH!

79 (36/43). Barely held-on for the back nine. Sheesh. 
Found a dozen Snell MTB and put them in my bag today. Wow. I LOVE these!!! I know they don’t make the MTB anymore, but I gotta figure out which ones took its place. Great golf ball!!!!

They were just rebranded the MTB Black. Similar to standard Prov1 and TP5
