7.28.2021 Had a great day on the Thousand Islands Golf Club Lake Course and didn't realize just how well I was playing. The SwingU app I have used since 2014 dutifully recorded a 47 on the front 9 and then a 42 on the back 9 for a total 18 hole score of 89.  The reality hit me like a hammer when I realized I broke through the 90 level for the first time ever! Totally awed and still hearing my son Patrick's words (as he was driving us back to the clubhouse just over a mile from the Lake Course 18th green, "did you score each hole as you always do?" to help me wrap my mind around it.  And the answer was of course "yes" as the creature of habit I am.

One birdie and one par, the rest single and double bogies.  Awesome day, awesome weather, awesome spending it with my son, and awesome surprise after touching the 'close and save' feature on the app...  I think I will keep playing golf lol ⛳

Congrats on breaking 90 for the first time!!!!

Good dew sweeper round. 6:45 tee time for 9 holes was done before 8:30.

-40 (+5) 1 Double, 3 bogeys and 5 pars.

-5/7 fairways 1/9 greens (the approach struggle continues) 4 up and downs! (with an average putt of 5') and 13 putts including 5 1 putts! and no 3 putts! (The O-works knows its on the testing hot seat)

Struggled off the tee, only 2 good drives. Again approach shots were just not good, was short and catching them fat. Chipping was fantastic and put a lot close and the putts were just falling for me with really good lag putting again. I had my chances for bird and just didn't happen but kept the damage to the minimum.

Here is one, focusing on setup, and I have choked down on the putter about an inch (thanks @B.Boston) which is helping me keep the toe down. This was a 39' first putt and had a 3' easy tap in.

 

Really good putting performance today.... as you can see in the video, they were getting back to shape after all the rain.  They were quick today!

Well as Mark mentioned we got out for out morning round this AM.  I have really nothing to complain about this round.

8E5F9266-42B3-4758-BF4C-039789E24494.jpeg.a71e0535604d5696855225fad61cf210.jpeg

Pretty solid round for me, and I’m very happy with the Epic Max LS off the tee.

C9146B8A-491D-4235-B933-E99DE782ED58.jpeg.a3e0730cc158716d2b4325708dada194.jpeg

Average 257 off the tee (more on that in a moment) and after missing 3 of the first 4 fairways I hit the last 3 with some really good drives.  5 GIR is another solid number for me.  I have one three putt (on the same hole as last time too) which was frustrating, but the greens were much faster today, and I left myself in a really bad spot with a downhill bending putt that just kept running past the hole.  I almost made the comeback putt but missed for the tap in 3 putt.  

I only had two real errors, on the last two holes.  My second after a great drive on the par 5 was fat and didn’t advance the ball well. I dropped a second ball down and had the right club, ended up on the green and made “birdie” with that ball and bogey with mine (that damn 3-putt!).  Then my tee shot on the par 3 9th was terribly fat and toey.  Ball went into a creek so I re-teed and hit a great shot to about 8 feet and made the one-putt bogey.  Another bad swing or two but really I felt pretty good today.

Now, the Epic Max LS and Motore X combo performed really good today.  Missed my first 3 fairways with it, but hit the last 3 and was never really in a terrible spot.  One I had to hit a punch under some branches.  But the highlight was in the consistency:

63369792-FC19-423C-9B35-18C9AB4CF15F.jpeg.1866f93b5d43cc3ad531e91da6669c83.jpeg

With the exception of the 7th, every drive was 260+  This is exactly what I saw in my fitting, and should highlight the forgiveness in that head.  On top of that, the 7th hole is a uphill par 4, and the course was still wet.  I went back in history and my longest on that hole was only 263.  So the Max LS performed awesome.

The strokes gained figure at the top of this post really highlighted it for me.  It’s the first time all year that my driving has been positive strokes gained against a scratch golfer (hey we all have goals right!?).  That honestly surprised me, but I’m stoked to see that having an impact right away.

  

 

That driver is a beast. Very nice consistency right there!

It’s amazing the difference a shaft can make… same holes, similar conditions, two weeks later:

still not ready to declare the Motore X winner against the Ventus, but it’s pretty clear the MMT driver shaft is not for me.

Congratulations on breaking 90! It's something to be proud of and it sounds like you had wonderful company to share this milestone with.

ok, I am back from my trip and got to play 3 times so far this week.

I am also using the Edel E.A.S. putter I was custom fit into 3 weeks ago, and I have completed my fitting review and will get it posted this weekend. Hint ( its awesome)

So Im playing well, and shooting low. and putting pretty darn good. Had 4 birdies on Monday, that round was sick. Today was kinda ho hum compared to Monday, but still a decent game. Its just nice to get back to it.

 

This is shaping up to be the year of the EDEL

Played pretty poorly in the midweek stableford this week - 33 points (19 on the front 9). 

Couldn't get going off the tee until 16 when I realised I wasn't dropping my left shoulder to help hit up on the ball. On 16 I drove 280 into wind, 17 was 320 and 18 was 240 with my hybrid. 

Irons were OK on front 9 but lost my rhythm on the back. Putted OK which saved a few shots..

I find it hard to not get frustrated at playing poorly but need to keep telling myself that I'm only 4 months back to playing after a long layoff. 

On a plus my HC came down to 15.7 🙂

Alright before I get excited about my round yesterday I have a rules question. Hit a tee shot that took an unlucky bounce and settled nicely next to a grain silo. The silo impeded my ability to swing, is there a penalty for the drop?

Unless there is a local rule giving you a free drop for some reason there is a penalty.

Unplayable lie rule.... 1 stroke with the 3 drop options....within two club lengths, back along the line to the flag as far as you want or re-hit from where you hit the shot that got you there. 

Somebody correct me if this has changed recently....I don't study the rule changes from year to year like I should.

I played 9 at Soldier Hollow in Midway, Utah the other day. 

IMG_1869.jpg.7f4d3d3f736ae5224b8252c17bef8613.jpg

First hole, stroked a drive over a fairway bunker, 54* to about 3 feet... rolled in the putt for the first bird in a long time.  Second hole, approach was long, missed a 4' par putt... bogey.  Third hole (par 5), lost 2 drives, hit a nice 6i to about 80 yards, lost two balls from there for a 10.  I stuck an 8i from 177 to 4' for my second birdie on 5.   

IMG_1870.jpg.5a8b4edbafaefe21fb2869dd497e698a.jpg

 

Hole 8 was the worst.  I hit a drive 310 perfectly down the middle, 139 into the green.  Airmailed my approach and settled for a bogey.  Two more lost drives on 9 (both decent shots, but one was right and one went through the fairway).

That round pretty much sums up my golf game these days.  I need to work on distances.  I thought I had them dialed, but then sometimes I just hammer it even when I'm trying to swing easy.  I almost always hit long, so maybe I need to club down.  

It sure was pretty out there though! IMG_1868.jpg.198bf337bc451a468950c6b4210b9c61.jpg

Looks gorgeous
