First off this morning at my course. Started out with a 3 putt and the front 9 was scrambling. Finshed strong on the back though. Had 3 lip outs for birdies. 

Oxmoor Valley - Ridge 

84- 44/40; 9 GIR; 7 FIR; 35 putts

Funny story - watched a hawk pick up my golf ball off the fairway. I chased after it and the ball was eventually dropped. Never thought I would actually see that happen. Good start to a friday.

It's good luck... in Haiti.  😂

Room to improve: Something I realized about midway through the round is that I may need to get SLIGHTLY more aggressive going after pins. Especially on these courses where the greens are HUGE compared to other courses I've been playing. Previously I could play for the middle of each green and be left with a decent putt. Here there are some greens where if the flag is tucked deep one side, and I play for my miss on the other but hit it well, I could be left with a 50 yard putt. On the back 9 I started trying to make adjustments to still play to the bigger areas of the green, but trust more my ability to get somewhat close and saw that paying off. 

Be careful with this. Not only could that lead to more misses but could mess with your mental game if you aren’t keeping good expectations. Especially if you are hitting longer clubs into greens, your dispersion circle will be higher. I’d personally rather have a 80ft putt as a GIR than a 10yrd bunker shot to the pin. 

Good score BTW. Way to get over your nemesis hole!

Got 3 hours sleep last night with Baby doing bay things.

 

subsequently played like absolute ass so gave up on the scorecard, accepted my medal entry fee as a donation and went fun shot hunting. Had 3 birdies, an eagle on a par 4, two 9s on a par 4s and three doubles. 
 

Drive the green on a blind downhill dogleg over water to here, will be honest… not doing it again.

79 (37/42). Five over in the last 6 holes, one being a double. Frustrating. Tried the AVX, @Shankster, and hit a couple bombs with it. I really liked the hit and stop on the greens, but I’d like a little more height out of it. I played it exclusively a couple years ago, so I’ll keep giving it a try.

It grows on you.

Just got finished here at wine valley golf course. I didn’t golf great, I hit a 87.

I haven't made it over there yet this year.  Since they have NO trees, I'm waiting for cooler weather.  Chris the pro at WV used to live near me; his mom lived across the street from me in Kennewick before I moved to Richland.

Hey man, if I didn’t have family playing I would have invited you, such a good course… I wish I was able to play it better. Some of my drives were just so far right I didn’t have a plan to fix the shot. Of course the greens were fast and I fortunately got lucky with some shots.

Oh for sure. For the record I'm not going to be out there firing at pins like Tiger on Sunday. More that instead of mindlessly aiming for the center of the green every time, taking a look at location and picking a target that's at a large area that might be closer to the pin, especially from tighter in. For instance one green is 79 yards deep and has spots where it narrows and widens along it. Rather than just hit for the middle if the pin is all the way up front, I'll aim for the middle part of that front portion.

Played pretty terrible today;  struggled off the tee and a little with the irons; and lost about 6 balls.   score wasn't even kept on the back nice.   Only redeeming factor was I had good company with @Jmikecpa

The company was certainly better than the golf.  I actually hit it better than I thought I would after the layoff. Some things to work on but not too far off.

My 3 aces have come about 8 years apart; so my next one will come in 4 years.  😂

A friend of mine has two aces.  One was two days before his birthday, the other (which I witnessed) was two days after his birthday.  

Every year in late May (his bday is June 4), he starts to wonder if this will be time for number three.  🙂
