How'd you play?

37/41 back at home today. 3 birdies on the front, too many missed shots. But since I looked at my stats, my GIR is improving. I hit 12 on Mon & 10 today. Almost up to 50% for the season. Putting is iffy too, but not terrible, my biggest area to work on in the off-season.

I decided to throw all caution to the wind with my finger recovery and played in my first tournament today. 

It was a tale of three six hole groups of scoring....  Six excellent holes with 5 pars and a birdie, Six bogie holes, and Six holes so bad I ended up with a 93...  I actually think that will net down for handicap purposes when it gets posted there's several of those bad holes where I'm definitely north of net double bogie.  As is usually the case my blow up holes involved chipping, sand along with a few bad breaks.    Two things I'm working very hard on, but that the condition of LA municipal golf makes difficult to do well.  I hit a lot of really great shots and putted really well short approach just failed me miserably.  16 strokes inside 50 yards. 

Still though I had a great time.  The only negative was that the guy I caught one of the guys I was paired with cheating on a couple holes.  First he tried to take free relief on what was really an unplayable.  Then he stopped a short put he missed while it was still in motion.  WTF.  I made him count those strokes before I would sign the card, but who knows how many other strokes the dude shaved wile we were playing.  I just don't get that BS.  We aren't pros, are you really going to sell your integrity in the hopes of winning your entry fee back?  I'm definitely going to request not being paired with that guy in the future.   

Anyway here's my shot of the day from 105 -- and I holed the birdie putt.PXL_20210909_191041243.jpg.712cc3b0a2af7a6ca9136f742482f50a.jpg

Tough not knowing where to aim on the tee box.  Frustrating round….

Welcome to my every day play!

Eazy, peazy...  I just aim down the middle.  If the ball goes left, it's on the left side of the fairway; if the ball goes right, it's on the right side of the fairway.   🤣

Played 11 holes Tuesday before the rain drove us off the course.  Today we played 15 holes before the bottom dropped out of the sky.  Got wet both days but we have to try.  We play a net skins game so we can pay even if it’s only 11 holes.  Today we added a Front/Back/Overall category. My threesome finished 3 under so we won $3 each! Much a moola!

It poured almost all day here, ponds are getting full again.

Yup, feel bad for you guys.  Talked to my cousin who lives in CA and it’s not good. Hope you get some rain SOON!!  Put out those fires and fill up the reservoirs!!

What an afternoon. Shot an 86 but a really weird way of getting it. Puked a 12 over 47 on the front and a 4 over 39 on the back. 71% FIR. I think just stepping up and hitting the driver worked on the back, opposed to trying to hit to a target line on the front. Averaging 260 off the tee for the round didn't hurt either.

I played a round with my buddies after work yesterday, and I had a lot of positives. I shot an 84 with 3 penalties, but my ball striking keeps improving, and this was the best my swing has felt since the changes. My driver and putter was on beast mode, and I had a personal best 8 one putts with a total of 29 putts. I need to play the par 5's better, and fewer drop shots. Also, I played the Pro V1x, and I was really fighting too much spin, so some really good iron shots came up short of green, but I have been trying the TP5x and really liked it. I also have a dozen Pro V1 Left Dot that I will try as well. I just need to use the V1x first. I will go to the range to see if I can keep building while it's hot. 

Score 84

FIR 50%

GIR 17% 

Putts 29

Seniors stroke play today.  I hit my driver well, but struggled with hitting the greens.  A poor putting day (34 putts) coupled with missing the greens too often led to a disappointing 82.

Shot one of my worst recorded rounds. Raven Nest in Huntsville, TX is the home to the Sam Houston State University Bearkat Golf Team. (My alma mater)

They have done some serious turf work on the greens, and they're a wreck currently. Pretty disappointed the Pro Shop didnt mentionn it when I paid for my tee time. On top of the patchwork greens, they also sanded them 40 min before I tee'd off.

If only I could blame my triple digit score on the greens... maybe I'd have 8 more balls in my golf bag than I do now.

It was nice to get out and walk 18 in Texas without dying though.
