Played at home but it wasn't golf. 6+ inches of rain this past week. Didn't keep score hit the ball pretty well, legit birdie on 18. Lost 5 balls just because of plugs in the rough.

being at sea level

The few times I've been to Myrtle Beach, that struck me too. Not like Ohio is high elevation, but the difference is just enough to cause problems.

So my plans to play three rounds in Myrtle Beach last week didn't work out very well. Went to play with Bid Stu on Monday. Got to the course and the rain came down for 20 minutes. Once it stopped the sun came out but the owners decided to close the course. So Big Stu and I chatted for a while but never got to play. 

Tuesday my resort got me a tee time at Beachwood at a discounted rate. The course wasn't up to MB standards in my opinion. Bare spots on tee boxes, crab grass in fairways, compacted sand traps. I played back a set of tees to play with the group I was paired with. Had a tough time with the thicker humidity and being at sea level and was short a lot on approaches. No matterhowmany timesitold myself to club up one, i didn't listen to myself. Wound up with an 80.  But met a bunch of nice guys and had a good time. 

Thursday was going to go back down and play with Big Stu but teen drama struck. I had to stick around and keep the girls in check. They met some boys and one of our chaperones left Thursday morning. Headed back to TN Friday morning.

Got to play my home course today. Three bogies and four birdies for a 70. Back on track. Hit 100 percent of the fairways. 

 

We have 2 now grown daughters and 3 teenage granddaughters (19,17 &16) so We know the ALL about the Drama😱

Too bad you didn’t get to play with Big Stu, I think tat would be a blast!

Golf gods giveth, golf gods taketh away.

There is nothing in golf that is more true...

And speaking of that, I will now recount my tale of disgust from the weekend...

I played my usual Friday afternoon round with mi amigos.  Doubled one hole with a three putt, bogeyed the last after missing a reasonably straightforward putt, for a 77.  This is par 71, but it's rated 69.0/122, so it's essentially playing to my 7.x index.

Afterwards, I commented how this was getting to be a recurring theme.  Seven of my best eight scores in GHIN are 77 or 78.  Of course, my buddies give me considerable crap for this, as buddies do, LOL.  Felt like I was maybe turning a corner, if I could eliminate the whiskey tango foxtrots in my rounds, maybe I could nudge that a bit better.

The golf gods were listening.  Saturday and Sunday was the Member-Member two man event in the Men's Club.  Saturday, I shot a scintillating 84, including a 30 degrees to the right blocked tee shot into OB Land.  Sunday, I shot a crowd pleasing 89, that was adjusted to 87 for posting purposes.

Yes, the golf gods hath spoken.  

I must now lay a burnt offering of old tees and cart path scuffed golf balls at the altar of the golf gods to seek their forgiveness...

I recently had been struggling with my driver, so I added lead tape and it really helped me square up the face. I am still adjusting to playing a fade, but this weekend it started feeling more natural and my ball striking really improved from the confidence. I just had 4 blow up holes, where I just can not commit to a target, and the penalties really added up. It gets discouraging seeing the handicap rise, but I am confident that I am really close to breaking through.  Anyways, the round had a lot of positives, and really good learning moments. This week on the practice areas I am really going to work on picking a target, committing to it, and then executing the shot.  

Score 87
