Played twice over the weekend.  Shot 79 Saturday, 78 Sunday.  In both instances, screwed up to shoot those.  Course is 69.0/122 from tees being played, par 71.  Hoping it means I'm close to some form of small step forward from my 7.x hdcp level I've been at for a few years.

Yeah, we know how that goes, LOL.

What was interesting was putting my Fly-Z+ in the bag for the weekend.  I've had a love/dislike with my King LTD since acquiring it, but the Fly-Z+ has always been pretty good.  And it shined this weekend.

Great fun.  😁

@Rickp  if you are putting bad enough to deserve the use of this one then I don't think LH / RH would matter and may even help to putt wrong handed!!!  😆

I played my first ever solo round today, son was on a weekend trip with friends.  Not sure I could do it again.  Teed off at 6:40 so it was pretty empty.  Lost a ton of balls; still have a tough time tracking my shots and my depth perception is horrendous.  Son can usually keep track for the both of us.  Also, being alone meant I got into my head a lot more.  My son and I like to crack jokes and keep things loose whenever we mis-hit something (which is still often) and since it was just me, I was much more easily frustrated at times.

Would definitely enjoy golfing as early as possible more often.  Playing by myself, at my current level, is a much more iffy proposition.  Shot a 105, which is actually one of my better rounds.

Son got home earlier than thought so we actually got out for a round together later that day.  It was both slow and horrendous.  I played terribly.  I kept hitting my drives off the heel (I assume) and shanking line drives hard left.  We also skipped a hole rather than wait on a guy who had clearly dragged his unwilling young son there.  Excruciating to watch.  Then near the end we were stacked up six groups deep on two or three holes, so we wound up skipping 16 and 17 and jumping straight to 18 because we were getting hungry and didnt want to stick around for another hour. 

But, we were together and outside and otherwise had a great time, as always!

As you all know, last month I had back to back terrible rounds 111, and 105. Well I got my redemption. Last week we took our family vacation to Eastern WA. I got to Play the same course I shot the 111 on.. It is Desert Canyon, I great resort course Boasting a 600+ yd Par 5.. you can look at it Here:

 http://www.desertcanyonresort.com/ 

After a so-so warm up.. I proceed to stripe my 1st drive right down the middle, and make par.. I'm off and feeling well.. Birdie 2, Birdie 3 a par 5 after having to drop for second. Then Bogie 4,  birdie again number 5... Par out the rest of the front, Shooting a best ever -2 front 9, 34.. DAMN.. back 9 was not as great but steady for me adding 6 bogies and a double.. I was starting getting a tight back on 12.. Errr... still Tie my personal best round score with a 78, with 3 lip outs on the back 9.. but this round was on a harder and longer (600yds) course.. So how did I play.. Freaking AWESOME.. Thanks 

Great score!  I've never played Desert Canyon very well.  Even though I can keep it in play, it always seemed like eI was in the wrong spots.  

Next time you head over the mountains, let me know if you would like to play somewhere!

🚨 PB alert! 🚨 

39/38 with 9 fairways, 8 greens and hold the 📱 29 putts! 
9 bogeys, 4 birdies and 5 pars!

putter was on fire, driving for the most part was 🔥. Course was semi wet and I Definitely was short changed with a couple 290 drives that had 0 roll.. 2nd shots were still a minor struggle but short game was just ridiculous with close chips and draino putts. (No 3 putts)

9/18 were a par 4/5 and I drained birdie putts from 32 and 19, just couldn’t miss it felt like.

had some great views out there too with wildlife with a crane and some baby deer

... You Are The Man!!! I can't believe how many people I play with that are completely unaware of Natures Beauty on the course. Hummingbirds, Hawks, Doves, Pheasant,  Roadrunners, Lizards, Squirrels, Rabbits, Prairie Dogs and Coyotes grace desert courses. The fact that you shot a Personal Best (congrats 🤗) and still  included wildlife in your post is very impressive.

It was a gorgeous day out and so much was out puttering around the course! I was looking for the mama deer but couldn’t find her, the 2 baby’s came barreling out of the woods and were playing around for a good 5 minutes was awesome! No bear or Moose today though unfortunately!

... We were playing in Galena Ill at Eagle Ridge and on our last day we were the 1st 2some on the course. Several holes ahead of the 4some behind us we got to a par 3 with a slightly elevated tee box. Right behind us 3 fawn and a doe came onto the last green about 40 yds behind us and were romping and playing. All of a sudden they all took off at full speed into the trees on the other side of our hole closing the 200 yds in a wink of an eye. We wondered what spooked them and then a Huge Buck comes out of the woods and looks over at us like "Kids, what can you do?" and then head held high he trotted into the woods behind them. 😂

7:00 am Tee Time.  Cart Path Only (CPO) so understandingly wet Fareways.  Greens were cut which was surprising and were in great shape but a little slow.  
Driver was OK (no roll) but irons were flying high and long.  It’s amazing what can happen when the ball finds the middle of the club face!  Shot +3. 
One of of 4some had one of the best Tee to Green Day’s I’ve ever seen him play……only problem COULD NOT PUTT.  He did make 2 Birdies but left at least 3 out there.  He’ll be in my Bacon Boyz Friday group so we’ll see what happens 😱

More rain today and tonight so another CPO day tomorrow.

Maybe silly, but I got paired with another mid-cap at a scramble today, and combined with a pretty forgiving course, took away my first golf trophy...

Nothing in comparison to you guys who play real comps or for money games, but it's still a nice feeling. I hit the ball well, and thankfully when I didn't the other mid-cap in our group did.

... I have been putting this off for too long and finally decided to make a swing change. Talked with a PT specializing in golf and he said if I want to keep playing I had to make the change to protect my back. While I am not saying my swing looks like either, think less Freddie Couples and more Ernie Els. I have always had an X factor wind between my hips and shoulders and this is the problem for someone approaching 70. PT wanted me to turn my entire body with less difference between my hips and shoulders or more simply just turn my hips more to lessen the difference. My body has become more active to protect my stiff back so he wanted me to use it instead of fighting it. Certainly makes sense.

... First round was a disaster as most first rounds with a new swing tend to be. 2nd round was better but started tp regress on the back 9. 3rd round yesterday just really clicked for me. Started off very strong but again by the back 9 I started to hit some pushes and pulls with 2 bogies but had to get up and down several times as my body and arms were losing sync. When you swing one way for 40 years it ain't that easy to just change to something that feels very different. The good news is when in sync, it feels great. When out of sync it feels like my body and arms are fighting each other. The best news is my back never stiffened up more while playing and it has been as pain free as I can expect, meaning still hurts when I play but not as much as usual. I will have to take a 3 or 4 day "vacation" from playing as temps are getting above 110* but really looking forward to getting back out there when the temp gets back to 105* and below this weekend. 

... Btw, putting my back 9 woes into perspective even though the pressure almost got to him on the last few holes, my playing pard was thrilled to break 90 for the second time! Played the whites but all par 3's from the tips so adding 154yds to the 6264 brings it to 6416 and the 221yd 7th is a brute.
