Such a great time!

Here’s the Arccos down and dirty on our team’s play:

Overall we played really well.  Two teams finished ahead of us a -10.  While I didn’t track every shot by which person hit it I did go back and look at drives because I had a pretty prolific day off the tee with the Epic Max LS and Motore X combo.  

Now,  There are certainly some downhill assists here, but nothing too crazy… but I was striping them pure today.  A lot of shots had nice tight draws and I’m really feeling like I can swing smooth and get great results with this combo.  We ended up using my drive on 7 of the 14 non par three holes.  My average on those holes was 287.57!  I’ve never had a day like that off the tee. Also interesting to note, I took driver on every single par 4 and 5 even if it meant needing to try to take one over a tree to cut a corner.  I feel really confident with this combo right now.  We started on #15, par 3s excluded:

But it was a DAMN good thing I had Mark, Pete, and Tim there to hit approach shots because Those were not nearly as good for me, although I did card one natural birdie on #13.  My Arccos smart distance for driver went from 266 yards to 271 yards with just this one round.  It’s going to hurt a little bit when I tell it to exclude this round from my stats… but it must be done!

It was a nicely run event, with a lot of good people and I was happy to have the chance to join in this year!

 

Sounds like that combo is killing it which is great. Found a similar groove with mine lately and looking forward to the next round of now that I have the spin under control. Though don't think I'll quite keep up with that average.

Way to bring it with the Big Dog!  How does today compare with your typical driving average?

Worst round of the year today… +14, but I think Arccos missed some shots.  Probably more like +16 or 17… yikes.

 

But I expected a round like this to pop up.  I was losing everything right.  Something in the new set up I have to work out.

 Anyway, I was really hitting the ball poorly and getting unbelievable bad breaks, 

Bad breaks, eh?  Unbelievable ones?

I was recently told that over time the bad breaks and good breaks even out.  Horse hockey!!  I've been waiting for over 2 years for the good breaks to catch up with bad breaks!!

Well, not unbelievable, but tough pills to swallow --- hit a great 8 iron a bit left of the flag, it hits and bounces hard left (like 90 degrees) into a trap.  Another hole, I pull my iron into the trap and get the proverbial fried egg into the side of the trap.  I hit my best drive of the day and when I get to it, it's in a deep divot that the person didn't bother even trying to fix.  I don't think I had any good bounces today to even any of the bad ones out.  Or maybe I just don't remember the good ones 🙂 🙂

I was REALLY pressing to post another score in the 70s…maybe a little too much. Sh**ked one on 5 which led to double…did that 3 more times during the round and just couldn’t shake them. This is not a good place to be, Dante’s levels of hell needs to include sh**king a golf ball. They cost me 6 strokes today.

Anyways…back to reality 😆 sorry to be so gloomy. 

 

We all have those rounds, hope you bounce back next time out.

They always show up at the worst time, and the result is in the worst possible location.  At least they do for me.
