Busy holiday weekend with golf! Walked 18 on Friday, Sunday, Monday and this morning and also managed to get out for two seven-hole practice rounds with the wife. My legs are feeling it - I figure I've walked about 50 miles in the last week on the golf course.

Playing really well, sometimes the scores just aren't following. I'm hitting the ball wonderfully and having a blast so that's all that really matters:

  • Friday: 42/38 = 80 
  • Sunday: 40/37 = 77
  • Monday: 37/43 = 80 (Bummed on this one - took a triple on No. 17 after hitting my drive OB left!)
  • Tuesday: 44/38 = 82

One of these rounds I'm going to go low on both the front and back and have a really nice score for me. So close!

I mentioned over in the "What are you practicing thread?" that the 60/60/100 drill from Chris Ryan has been a huge help for my ball striking. I'm starting to see some better distance out of my irons and especially with my hybrid and driver from the tee. Now, just to keep the driver in play more often...

Great playing there Cody!  How did you get the photo to scroll through all your holes played, without having to post several photos?

... Continuing my experiments like old Golf Forums used to do, I shafted up my Cleveland 588TT's with VS Proto 85gm shafts. Still way too light and I have swing tempo issues. I also miss the trajectory control my MIM/T100S irons produces. For me the 588TT's with a thin face and thicker soles just want go high and for me at least tend to go left, which I imagine is more a shaft issue than a head issue. 

... As an aside I am still learning about Phoenix, heat and desert weather and course conditions. Dealing with 60-80% humidity and higher growing up in the south and living just miles away from Lake Michigan, it can get very uncomfortable in the low 90's and 100 is just crazy hot. Had my first day of dripping sweat here in Phoenix last week and was shocked to find out the humidity was 28%?!? Seems 4-9% humidity in the desert is more the normal and of course I sweat, but it dries before forming on my skin. Even 18% humidity gets a little sweaty. So 110* with 4-8% humidity isn't bad at all while 105 with 28% borders on too hot to play. Just through some might find this interesting as it has been a real learning weather experience for me. That said, I would still trade 115* and 28% humidity with sunshine and greenery for wind chills below zero, snow covered ground, with barren trees and no sunshine for up to 30 days in Chicago. 🤪

"It's a dry heat!"  I grew up in hot and humid Arkansas, and I've been living on the dry side of things just long enough to feel like I was going to die the last time I played golf in Arkansas in May in 94* & 100% humidity...and that was back in 2018.  But I do miss the green...at least I can keep my clubs looking newer for longer in a humid climate...I know, keep it in the fairway and I won't have that problem.

Lived in the Phoenix area for over 25 years and just played TPC Stadium course for the 1st time. Shot a respectable 81 but was working the scramble like a short order cook! Driver was on a rope all day but I couldn't hit the greens to save my life.

Thanks! I've been seeing a lot of progress in my swing and that's made me really happy. Feels like something clicked for the first time in a long time.

I use the free photo editor GIMP to create a single image with multiple layers (each its own screenshot from my Arccos app) and then save as an animated GIF. Photoshop process would be similar, I think. I'm sure there are also some online editors than can do it as well. I set the interval to four seconds.

I hear you!  Still 102 and 16% humidity today. I've lived here for 51 years and I've gotten used to the dry heat in the summer.  The nice thing is that most years I can play golf every day in the winter.  Sure, it's cold but usually not much precipitation.  I grew up on the wet side of Oregon, and if I were still there, I likely would not have taken up golf, as I hate slogging in the rain.

... I have only walked off a golf course twice due to the heat. Many years ago playing in Myrtle Beach the temp hit 102 with about 90% humidity and not a hind of a breeze. I was playing alone and a ranger came around when I was on 12 and said they were closing the course due to the heat and I was the only one left on it LOL. They said just place the cart key in the slot at the shed and leave the cart parked there. I played 2 more holes and decided enough was enough and got there just as the last guy was leaving so gave him the key and went back to the ocean and could not jump in with my kids fast enough. Similar scenario in Chicago, 105* and very high humidity and the course was pretty empty so I flew around til hole #13 when I caught 2 foursomes so I just kept driving to the clubhouse. I really should not have played either day...

OK, not me... I stayed home today.  However, my wife played in a Ladies Golf Outing at our only private club in town...  Meadow Springs Country Club.  She wasn't going to play in this event, but one of the ladies from our club had surgery and the entry fee was paid.  

The Course:   The 18-hole "Meadow Springs" course at the Meadow Springs Country Club facility in Richland, Washington features 6,957 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. The course rating is 73.3 and it has a slope rating of 132 on Rye grass. Designed by Robert Muir Graves, ASGCA, the Meadow Springs golf course opened in 1971.  This course used to host a Korn Ferry Tour event each year for many years backed up to the Albertson's Boise Open.

This ladies event had 82 entrants.  My wife was the low gross of the ladies from our Columbia Point GC with an 88 and a net 71.  Course rating/slope from the Forward tees is 69.2/120. The low net was 66 by a member of Meadow Springs... duh!!  My wife has been trending in the right direction ever since her lesson with Monte in March.

Kind of a "meh" day.  40 on the front (started off with a double on the opening hole) and 41 on the back (again with an opening double).  I was striking the ball okay, but my partial shots felt jerky and wasn't making crisp contact, flubbing several pitches.  No birdies, despite having several opportunities.  Played before the high heat hit.  Think it was about 95 when we finished about 1:30.

Yeaaa…

say what you will about the zany politics and gnarled expense of so. California, but the weather is always close to perfect here…. I’d move, but nowhere else can replicate this weather…

I’m telling ya, Evan (my evnroll er3) is scared silly about the Edel fitting on Thursday, and doing his best to stay the main dog in my bag. I had 8 birdies today, (6 on the back 9) and others were close. 28 putts, but unfortunately didn’t score very well overall considering how it could have been a PB had I not had 7 bogies as well…. But best ever birdie total.
I should say, that the custom fit Edel EAS will have his work cut out for him, the ER3 is no joke…

Of anywhere on the course that has stands, I wish they would keep them up for 16. Walk through and all. That would only add to the experience of playing there.

Love the shameless plug for the Edel fitting/testing!😜 Mine's Thursday too and I can barely sleep at night! I actually look forward to going to work and being too busy to daydream about the putter and the whole fitting process. 

I know my Cleveland HB Premier isn't anything fancy but it's scrappy as hell and will definitely put up a fight to stay in the bag!

I know it's not So Cal but we're still holding our breaths that next year at this time the rental market will have chilled out in Monterey so we can pull the trigger and move. Just in the last 12 months it's blown up by about 30% and shot our budget all to hell. According to a buddy in the area, the techies from up north flooded the area once they could start working from home and wanted to escape the rat race.. so that jacked up the market. 

Weather there is slightly cooler but it's golf/outdoor season all year round. It's a hefty price to pay for physical and mental health but worth every penny if one can afford it.

  • 46/45 = 91 (+19)
  • 6/14 FIR (43%)
  • 8/18 GIR (44%)
  • 42 putts (1 4-putt, 6 3-putts, 9 2-putts, 2 1-putts)
  • Highlight: Still using 3-wood off the tee the majority of the time as I work to tame the driver on the range and work it in occasionally. On a par 5 and stripe a 3-wood off the tee and left with ~240 to the center so I decide to have a go with 3-wood from the fairway. Don't see it at all, but felt like I hit it well so I decide to drive up and look. I crest the hill and see my ball sitting just on the edge of the green in 2 with absolutely no look at the hole for eagle! Lol.

  • 42 putts (1 4-putt, 6 3-putts, 9 2-putts, 2 1-putts)
  • Highlight: Still using 3-wood off the tee the majority of the time as I work to tame the driver on the range and work it in occasionally. On a par 5 and stripe a 3-wood off the tee and left with ~240 to the center so I decide to have a go with 3-wood from the fairway. Don't see it at all, but felt like I hit it well so I decide to drive up and look. I crest the hill and see my ball sitting just on the edge of the green in 2 with absolutely no look at the hole for eagle! Lol.

Looks like a fun test for that 58* CBX 2 😉

As an aside I am still learning about Phoenix, heat and desert weather and course conditions.

Personally 110 is the absolute max that I can handle with dry heat. Anything more than that, I'm staying home. Phx/Desert golf in mid summer is definitely its own animal for sure and shouldn't be done without preparation. 

Here are the 3 things that I find I can't live without (Stu's Desert Golf Survival Kit) 😜

This is a 1 gallon double walled water jug. $25-$30 at Walmart. That's insanely cheap for a 1 gallon jug and the thing's a beast! I'll drink one of these + 2 - 32 oz bottles of Body Armor in a round.

Electrolytes.. and more specifically, these Trace Mineral drops. The bottle's kind of pricy but these are a lifesaver for me as I have a tendency to get pretty gnarly cramps after spending too much time in the high heat. I take these as a daily supplement in my water and they are far better than any electrolyte drink IMO. I'll hydrate the day before and also add about 50 drops to my gallon of water. The bottles lasts a good while so it's also worth the price.

Lastly, another life saver is the Chilly Pad by Frog Toggs. This is probably the best cooling towel that I've found. If you have a cart with an ice chest, just keep it in there in between uses and it's like air conditioning when you use it. Even without ice, it holds about 15* cooler temp than the air and that's a decent enough of a difference when you need it.

The thought crossed my mind and if I had any confidence in my ability to not take a chunk out of the green in the process, I definitely would have given it a go. Instead I just settled for putting up and around the bend as much as possible.
