Rough one today. Carded a 94 , which a year ago probably woulda been a 120 so there’s that. Bad drives ended up 2 fairways over and ones that looked good from the tee box ended up in tricky lies with no hope in going for the green. Fairways, hybrids, and irons weren’t bad but my wedge game was atrocious. If I was within 100 yards of the hole it was a war to get in the green. Putting was hit or miss, I’d either nail a 20 footer or 3 putt. But it was better than not playing at all so there’s that. 

Sounds like a solid outing to be honest. From a year ago you would be 2 shots less per hole on avg, so that is nothing to scoff at.

Very true. And not mad, just disappointed considering this was my first round over 90 in a while 😂

Played Augusta today. Ok, so I pretended to play Augusta (or Georgia Golf Club) on a friend's garage sim. He thought it would be amusing to have the greens set to stimpmeter rating of 13. FFS....🫣

I birdied the first two holes and then proceeded to get worse and rediscover the shanks with wedges.Dammit. Finished the round at something like +11/+12.lol. Putting was a joke. His is the only sim I've played on with putting used and it really does take some getting used to! Long putts especially. All good fun though.

Positives: Driving and fairway woods were good overall. Long and mid irons very good. Wedges were a joke and incredibly frustrating. Definitely coming over the top. Gah...

Played this afternoon and geez it's going to be a hot summer!  We hit 84° today and it was 80 yesterday.  Round went pretty good. Had a couple birdies and was hitting the irons really well. Driver was good most of the round but had a couple get away from me.  I'm really happy with the new Paradym TD 3W and was hitting it great. 

Ended up 4 over but happy with where my game is heading.

I know!  It's still getting cooler at night right now but during the summer we are freezing 4 or 5 gallons of water jugs and will set them in there.

Played the par 3 course 1 more tome before they shut it down for the tee to green makeover.   The friends today decided we should play the tips just for fun.  4 of the 9 holes I had to use driver!!! (180-230 yards). I did ok for the first time ever playing these tees.

We went around 1 more time to make it 18 holes. Did a little better the 2nd time.  Only had 1, 3 putt the entire round! (Can you guess which one?

The golf gods were not kind today. Walked off with an 87 and felt like I went a few rounds with a boxer. The course layout did not feel like it was particularly tough, but it seems the greenskeeper woke up in a bad mood because the pin placements were absolutely ridiculous on a few holes. The greens were crazy fast with large breaks, and nothing was a straight putt. I missed a couple 1 and 2 foot putts because I'm not used to playing 6 inches of break for an 18 inch putt. I struggled from the 80-100 yard range today. For some reason the full swing wedges just weren't hitting the distances I'm used to. The guys I were paired up with play the course often and they were saying the pin placements were just mean today.

Side note, we didn't get on the course until 45 minutes past our tee time because they were backed up due to a lack of carts. All the while the staff is making jokes about the graveyard of carts that need to be repaired hanging out in the building. Even if Florida didn't have a ton of other courses to choose from, I can't say I'd go back to that one. The guys I was paired up with were awesome though.

Got out yesterday afternoon, tried a course I haven’t played before. Man, that was a great track. Lots of hills, not too long, but required a lot of thought. I will have to post a review of the course (after playing it again and getting some pics).

For the last month, I’ve been really struggling, particularly off the tee. Yesterday, I was pretty dang good off the tee, with over 4 strokes gained. I found myself frequently looking at a short wedge into the green, but unfortunately, my approach game was total trash, so I hit only a few GIRs. I am encouraged, though, that with some instruction and practice, I could easily have shot probably 10 strokes lower yesterday.

Played with a good playing partner, and we were paired with a couple of fun guys. I am an introvert, but have found that golf is a really good way for me to meet new people where I actually enjoy it.

Have a great week, spies!

Played the first round of 2024 and the results were a lot like 2023. First few holes were tentative with a good drive followed by bad approach: then a bad chip followed by a long putt. On 4 I drilled a 7 iron to 40 feet, hit the next putt to 25 feet and somehow drained the long one. From that point on wheels fell off, a 3 putt double, a 9 after dunking two balls in the water, a bogey after a water ball and then two OOBs.  

I think the most frustrating thing is my irons got better as my driver got worse. By the time I got off the course, I couldn't hit driver without a true high push fade/slice. For the first round, it was fine, just frustrating that the same misses were creeping into my game.

Bingo.  P1 is front 9, P2 is back 9.  The digital scorecards are tricky on these carts. 3 putt was hole 5 on first 9. Landed over, chipped across,  then skulled the ball. Got frustrated and just rushed the putts.

Played on Saturday at Tempest Golf course in Gladewater, TX.

First time this year  (only my 4th round)  that it felt like all the aspect of my game was coming together at the same time.  By far my best driving day, but everything was relative solid, a couple of loose swings but for the most part I was hitting what I was aiming.
Missed a few putts but they were exactly were I was looking. I liked the stroke.

Hope to keep it going for the rest of the year!!

Could be a busy week coming up -- Tourney Thursday followed by a chance to play a bucket list course on Friday (if the rain doesn't screw things up).  Figured I'd go out for a tuneup on the Van Nuys Par 3 since the Tourney course isn't one that I play particularly well and the other course is just plain hard.  

Not bad +3 front +4 back with a double.  +7 total for a 61 on a par 54.  Putter was back from the worst round I've had with it, short game still pretty good thought I did cost myself at least two strokes by being greedy (thinking I could hole a chip instead of setting up an easy putt) Irons, okay.  I was a little stuck today but not so bad it was catastrophic.  Just hung it out a bit right all day.  If it was on a normal course with bigger greens I probably still would have been putting most of the time.  Plus, I did 18 (3200 yards) in 1:45.  Love to be able to play quickly.  Helps me stay focused. 

I've been trying to figure out how to maintain that focus over a normal round that has a lot of waiting, conversation, and other things that break me out of my focus.  It helps that I walk but I'm coming up empty.  Any suggestions to avoid getting impatient or losing focus?
