Played this morning Cart Path only but humidity wasn’t bad. Fareways were a little sloppy so no roll at all.

Anyway +2 going into 8 which is an easy Par 5, well sometimes easy……managed to double it with a “Hosel Rocket” 😱  Ended up with a +5, 41 as I managed to drown Tee shot on 9th on the Island Green but ecked out a bogie.  
still a fun morning!!

Got out this morning with @DiscipleofPenick to play a new-to-me course. Weather was perfect - a little chilly to start and mid-70's by the time we finished. Didn't play too bad, but not too well, either. Driver was about most well-behaved aspect, but couldn't capitalize as approach game was worse than normal. Ended up 47/44 for a +19. I must have rubbed off on Tom too much. He started very well, but limped in on the back 9 - I'll let him tell you about it, though.

Time for lunch, a nap, then go sub in a league for 9 more this afternoon.

@MaxEntropy is right I shot 39/44. I hit a few wild ones on the front but recovered each time. Everything after the 11th was an issue as maybe fatigue from my allergies/sinus/cold set in. I was coughing a ton, he asked if I was gonna die. I couldn't keep focus and seemed to screw up a shot on every hole. Worst was the OB drive on 16 and a bunch of 3 putts. Hit 3 good shots to finish though. 37 putts (30 avg) and several bad tee shots were the culprit. Still was a beautiful day for golf and a good time with another spy.

Played my additional 9 tonight, subbing in another league. I thought I'd played the course 20-ish years ago, but apparently I hadn't. 

Tee ball continued to be pretty good and irons were much improved over this morning, but chipping and putting SUUUUCKED. The greens had quite a bit of contour to them, but I was struggling with the reads and missed quite a few shortish putts. Started with a triple, thanks to OB and a chunked punch shot on the next 🤦‍♂️. Ended up with a +7 42.

 

Reminds me of a time I had to sub for my dad.  His partner was a “nice guy” and was hauling in the cart with my dad the week prior, smoked a pine tree branch and my dad got a pine needle stuck in his eye…

Anyways, the guy never shut up… I shot like a 70 on 9 holes because he wouldn’t leave me alone.. I was about 16-17… now, I can show him a thing or two… because I’ve watched a Rickie Fowler commercial or two. 😏 cue the Farmers tune here.

Also, this really has no relation to your post, but the giant SUUUUCKED brought back that memory.

I was thinking about my poor putting in my afternoon 9 last night - I think the biggest issue became that since I was so unsure of breaks, I became very timid. The one time I thought I had a pretty good read, I blasted it 10 feet past the hole. It was really a strange experience. I don't always execute well, but it is rare I have no clue what is going to happen. Last night I had no clue too often. I don't like that feeling.

9 hole team match play last night and my game was terrible. We won - but I didn't contribute with a 48. Left a couple of puts on the lip (both for potential winning pars) and my 'go to club' a 4H was broken (certainly not operator error 🤔). On a couple of holes my 7i was going further than my 4H - WTH. On the other hand the driver was working.

Wish all of my clubs would work together - well as Bubba Watson says "It's golf" 

The golf gods giveth, and the golf gods taketh....

Alternate shot match play today in the typical Scottish drizzle. 
 

both played incredible and would have been about 3/4 under scratch. Don’t think I’ve played as well ever especially in the format. Changed ball to Srixon Z Star XV and think I’ve found a winner. What a ball.
