That or meet-up in Parker, AZ and play Emerald Canyon a couple of days.  The Bluewater Casino/Hotel is very nice and the entire venue very affordable.  Our group usually schedules an overnight trip, playing R1 around noon, stay overnight, and R2 in the morning before driving back to Yuma.

 My game picked up after the turn when we got by a veerrry, slooooow, foursome.  One guy wearing khaki cargo pants and long black socks hit his ball from the fairway, stood there looking at it for the longest time, then dropped another ball and hit it.  That was it!!  My wife went Irish!!  On Mondays we don't have a marshal... we should!!

I feel your pain.. LOL.. Gotta love the guy Hitting 3 from 250 yds out on a par 5 and watching it like a pro.. LOL

We are already paying per night for a condo in Palm Springs, so we would make it a day trip.  It's 2.5 hours to Parker or Yuma, so it wouldn't matter which.

Played at Pacific Dunes yesterday and it was amazing. Had never played a links style course before and it was very different than any style course I have played before. Had an up and down round, but played ok overall. Didn't fully keep score, was trying to focus more on enjoying the course. Made par on both 10 and 11 which are back to back par 3s. Never played on a course before where distance is 130 but you need to play it like 180 because of the wind. Was hitting irons well on the front 9, not so great after 11 though. Wasn't hitting driver well on the front 9, but driver was hot on the back 9. Think I was initially trying to guide the ball too much, but then went with the swing the driver hard approach and was piping them down the middle of the fairway. 

Great course!  Did you opt to utilize a caddy?  It was an amazing experience first time I played there.  My caddy was a mini-tour player during the golf season (I played in Jan) and was very knowledgeable about the course.  Told me where to aim, read the breaks for me...it was unique!

Yeah, used a caddy. Round would have been terrible without one. Would have had no idea to know how much the wind impacted shots, where the best lines are, etc.

One of these things is not like the other....

4 5 4 3 9 5 5 3 4 = 42

14 is an easy par 5, so even if I "just" doubled it, I finish +4.

The 3 on 13 was worth a skin. I sank a 50 footer to do it.

At risk of jinxing myself, I sorted out my driver. The last three drives were good, with this on he last hole. Course still wet, so zero roll, but I'll take it.

Pushed the wedge a bit and lipped out the 10 footer.

I finally did it. For the past 2 years I have been on a the quest to a more consistent golf game and ultimately break 80. I've taken lessons, gotten fit for some club upgrades,  practiced more intentionally and played a lot. Today it came together.

79 (!!) 38/41 - 8 FIR - 6 GIR - 29 putts - 12 chips

I started off solid with a comfy par then 2 birdies on par 5s. The rest of the day was a little grind, with some great up and downs and solid drives. The best part is that I still felt like there were a few strokes left out there. A lip out par, a skull f*c!?d wedge inside 100 yards that flew the green and resulted in a double, and 2 wipey drives. But overall, it was a good grind and I am very proud of what I was able to accomplish. 

When me and my wife found out we were pregnant in January of 2021, I doubled down on the commitment to breaking 80 before baby girl comes. Well, 3 weeks before the due date, I did it. What a great game golf is and we are all so fortunate to be able to play. Time to put the final touches on the nursery... and maybe some more short game practice if I finish early.

Congratulations on breaking 80!

Played plum creek yesterday and finished with an 80 with three doubles. The other 3 I played with were playing whites so I joined them. I would have played better had I put my ego aside and quit pulling out driver which conveniently put my average distances directly in hazards consistently over shooting fairways. Putting still needs work but it was better as was my chipping if you don't count my shank on the 2nd hole followed by a chip in....

 

42/38 -80 

 

4/14 fairways

9/18 GIR

33 putts

After a week on vacation I finally played again, and shot well. Scored low but had 33 putts, which helps cement my opinion that you don’t need less than 30 putts to have a good round.

live been working on getting my hands higher on my backswing, cuz I think I’m too flat. Got some really good hits with this move.

is there ever an end to trying to improve your game?

We were paired with two elders...nice guys but holy cow were they sllooooowwwwwwwww...it killed any rhythm we had.

 

... We have all been there and it is agonizing. Just no reason to be slow regardless of your skill level. I have played with someone shooting well over 100 and moving well and someone shooting 75 and playing like molasses, stalking every putt like it will win the Masters. But the most annoying is those being social and just never ready. I really hate pulling up to the tee box to see a 4some talking while the group in front is on the green or sometimes walking off the green only to see their head swivel our way, look down the fairway and only then start to pull clubs and tee off. If the course is full there is nowhere to go but as you said, it kills your rhythm.
