I feel your pain!  While we're about 5 degrees cooler here, it's still h.o.t.  Add the smoke to the mix and it's no picnic!

Yeah, we had the 113-118º days in late June.  No fun!

We have been around 105º the last few days, but with the smoke from fires, it's holding in the humidity.  Normally at 105º we are around 15-20% humidity; now we are 60-70% which is awful at that temperature.  I was a wet mess when we finished our round yesterday at noon.

Took this pic as I was leaving my house at 6am:

So I didn't post after my round this weekend, but I guess now is as good as a time as any after last night's league sub performance.

So Saturday was just an incredible round of putting the ball. 28 total putts to get around and a great bit of scrambling led me to beat my 75 goal after my 77 with a 74, 37/37 (+2/E). In all honesty it could have been better on the back, I just missed birdie putts on 12 and 15 and lipped out on 13. I could have been four under standing on 16 tee, but as well as I rolled the rock from distance and making some putts that were outside usual make range, I wasn't going to complain. What I did do was apologize to the guy I was subbing with yesterday during that round saying there was no way I could carry it over...

Well, about that. Yesterday went out and shot a nice little 36 (+1). Key club on this day was driver. It was a warm one in CNY yesterday (just ask my polo and shorts I sweat through on the walk) but I had two drives over 270, which for me is a good day of driving it, both led to almost birdies that were routine pars. Also, won the 3 points afforded in the match with no handicap against a guy I was giving 13 shots to, so super pumped about that.

Playing again on Saturday, we'll see if we can keep it going because right now it feels pretty good to be me.

Gotta love a "sik" round of putting 🙂

Nice playing dude

Thanks man, it just feels like everything is going well. I honestly haven't felt like I was playing this well for almost a decade since I stopped getting out more often. Feels like this could be a breakthrough bit for me that I hopefully don't recede from.

Last night in league was near-perfect weather and my opponent was my good friend @Michael Wolff. We are both a 7 HC in league and we were playing the harder of the two nines. We were also neck-and-neck for our league MVP with only a few weeks remaining. I ended up with 6 pars, a bogey, and two stinkin' doubles for a 41. He had a birdie, 3 pars, 3 bogies, and 2 stinkin' doubles for a 42. It was a very close match and we were tied when we stepped up to the 18th tee after I doubled 17. 17 is a par 3 - I pulled my tee shot and left myself short-sided (why does that always happen?!?!?). It was a very difficult, uphill chip with the green running away from me - the primary goal was just getting it (and keeping it) on the green. I had about 30' for par and left it about 3 feet short. Rather than waiting, I decided to just ram it in and MISSED. Mike even tried to warn me by saying "take your time", but I'm too stubborn. So I took some frustration to 18 tee....

OK, so I got a good bounce off the cart path. Mike was in decent position off the tee but hit his second a bit fat, ending up short/right, so I pretty sure a par would win it for me. Good thing, since the greens weren't holding and I ran my chip about 15 feet past the hole.

Anyway, it was a really fun night.

 

Sounds like a good night, and that's a big drive with the Epic. But those greens still aren't holding?

Another meh mid-fourties league night. Couple holes I just can't seem to shake, and my ball striking has taken a dip the last few weeks. Promising range session last night, but I think I need a little less stakes in a round so I can hopefully bring back some feel.

Nope. Full shots are ok, but anything without enough speed to dent the green won't stop. I also had about a 50 yards for my 2nd on 16 to a middle pin. I landed my 54* on the front 1/3 of the green and it ran off the back.

Someone needs to straighten out the greens keeper. This is a mini, greens need to hold, especially short shots.

That's really odd.  Our greens have been just the opposite.  With the extremely hot July we had and the lack of rain, our Super has stayed on top of watering the greens every day.   So much that he "overwaters" them a bit as our tee sheets are so packed everyday, he can't get the sprinklers on and even hand watering by the staff during the day is tough as 36 holes spread over 800 acres is tough to get around to everything.    So they have been playing softer than he'd like to keep them.  But he has told everyone, it only takes one extremely hot afternoon to ruin the greens for 2 weeks, if they don't have enough moisture in them. 

Are they not watering them either by hand or sprinklers?  It sounds like you haven't had much rain either.

About 2 or 3 weeks ago it seemed like it wouldn't stop raining.

In general, it has been a dry summer, but we had a pretty wet July. The greens appear healthy (other than the 400 lb foot-dragger that must be in a league in front of us), they just don't seem to hold chips/pitches very well.

Had a great 9 last night 5 pars, a double, and 3 bogeys. Missed 2 birdie putts. Just need to straighten the driver out. Seems like every know and then I pick my head up and sky one off the face. Or the strong pull left sneaks in going OB. Outside of that my game has been good. I caught a downhill lie off a tee shot last night and Arccos had it at 295! Handicap also dropped to a 9.7 with the most recent 9 pairing
