Far from my best work today, but ended up having a lot of fun. Played Winterstone from the red tees (Par 72, 6234yds, 70.6/131) with two guys from Minneapolis. They came down to KC on vacation to play public courses which I thought was pretty cool. 
Weather was the perfect temp, but super windy with averages around 20mph and gusts of 30-40mph. Was a tough scene and I ultimately ended up stop keeping score. Drove the ball super well for me today, but the rest of my game was a struggle; either sending it long or a shank. Still had a lot of fun, happy with my driver after tipping, and glad I met those two guys.IMG_2400.jpeg.630983ce1175dad9dfaf73cabd98ddc9.jpegIMG_2401.jpeg.813dc438471b354fb8de4c555a04c7b9.jpegIMG_2404.png.3679e80588315771d06398e847752fb7.png

Sometimes the score is a byproduct. It's the fun that keeps us coming back!  Glad you enjoyed it!

First round at my course this morning after getting back from a nice, warm golf vacation in Palm Springs.  hated to play in the high-30, low-40 degree after that trip but have to get back at it some time.  The sun was out, but the wind picked up on the 5th hole and I was chillin’ and not in a good way.

I managed to scatter 4 bogeys for a 41 on the front nine.  The back nine was 3 bogeys and a stoopid double on #16, but followed it with a 30 foot birdie putt on #17… so a 39 on the back nine for a round of 80.  Can’t complain really; the short driving distances over this past winter seemed to have left and the wind-aided bombs were back.  Short game had it’s ups and downs… pun intended!  On #11 my approach shot missed a little left and the ball ran down the steep slope and across the cart path.  Can’t see the green surface; hit a decent LW that almost made it onto the green, then rolled back down the slope and across the cart path again to my feet.  Tried again… with better result; landed ball on green and checked up a foot past the hole.  On the par 3 #12 back into the breeze, my tee shot came up short in the bunker, but saved par with a 4 foot putt.

I need to spend some practice time out on the course to get rid of the warm grass blues from SoCal.

Sunny & 62* today so we lined up some elder care and got the 2nd to last open tee time and headed to the course!  It was very crowded, waiting on every shot and we were only able to get in 13 holes before playing #9 again to head back to the parking lot.  Some of the tees were in their normal spots while most are still in the winter tee location so the course is still playing fairly short.  I managed 2 bogies on the first two holes and 1 late birdie with all the others pars.  Three  birdie putts were left a couple rolls short as I couldnt get adjusted to the slower green speed.

My favorite shot of the day was a 7i on the 5th hole, a 90* dogleg right par 4.  The tee shot with the 18* hybrid was hit too high into the wind and came up shorter than i wanted.  In the fairway but was not far enough to be clear of the trees on the corner of the dogleg, I had to fade / slice around them to hit the green.  I opened the face and my stance and did my best cut swing.  The result was a nice high slice that ended up in the middle of the green.

I scored horrible today but played well. Makes no sense right. But I’ll explain. I left the house at 7:30 and it was a little foggy. I got to the course and it was dense fog. You couldn’t see the ball after 30 /40 yards. Always being one to take on a golf challenge I teed off.  I had to use a lime green ball just to get a sense of direction after the strike.  The positive, I didn’t lose a ball. The negative I didn’t think to bring a GPS and my laser was useless. Not being able to see a green or even judge distance was a fun challenge. I only parred 3 holes on the front 9 and bogeyed the rest. I consider that a win. By the back 9 it cleared up and the pars were back on track with one birdie.

It was a crazy thing to try but I had fun.

WOW, just WOW….Who knew; all these years I surely must have been playing in a fog, a heavy dense fog.. .
