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.

34 putts is a bad day? Maybe I am a crappy putter 😳

After being rained out both Tiesday(11 holes) and Thursday (15 holes), we had an overcast day with no rain.  My best round since moving my membership from Pebble Creek(R.I.P.) to Plantation Palms, I shot a 41/43:84 today with an Eagle on the Par 5 #9, followed by a birdie on Par 4 #15.  The Eagle came from a good drive, followed by a setup 5 wood, then a 63 yard 58* shot that landed just right of the pin then rolled around and down into the hole for the Eagle.  Also of importance was a Hole in One by one of the other players(we had 36 today) which was celebrated in the Pub.  My strokes gained was impressive today as compared to other 15 hcaps.

We had a shotgun start at 8:00 then a foghorn sounded at 9:11 so we could all stop and share in a moment of silence, honoring those who died on 9/11/2001.

First round (and first time swinging a club) in 3 weeks due local courses aerating, rains, flooding and me having a hell of a cold

Decided to take my usual set out and not use Arccos. Played surprisingly well given that I had some rust to knock off

Shot +6 78 with two double bogeys from lost balls off the tee. Other than those two swing I played really well. Struck my irons about as good as I ever have. The workout program and swing speed training I’ve been doing has given me about a half a club more distance with the irons which was great to see. Burned a bunch of lips on some short birdie putts but did get two to fall

Friday “Bacon Boyz” 9 always hoot.  Everything felt great especially irons.  I’m still with the G710’s and they were working hard.  Shot a 4 over with 2birdies.  Birdies were No more than 3 footers.

only downer was my Buddy was sitting out as he got Covid visiting his Sons family in Atlanta.  Luckily he had both shots so wasn’t too bad, like a cold👍

snuck out for a twilight 9 and managed a 39. 

played multiple balls, keeping score on my first and working some different approach and greenside shots with the rest. 

a course completely to myself isn’t something i get very often so i took full advantage.

Played Beaverhead in Dillon today... just gorgeous weather compared to the smoke we've had pretty much since early July. 40/43 and 45/41 playing 2 ball... today a Z-star vs. a yellow CS.  I must say that I really liked the feel of the Z-star but no clear winner.  I had to fight off my tendency not to release my hands at impact; which tends to cause me short and right results. I also don't want to exaggerate that and start getting "flippy".  I was a bit off with the driver today, more pulls than I've had recently, leaving me to scramble around and over trees. But those are good practice and fun to tackle, so what the hell... FIR's are overrated 🙂.

The ZX5's/MMT shafts continue to feel really good.  Compared to the G410's, flush shots almost feel like nothing coming off the face... if that makes sense?  I've been watching my strike locations on all shots and really like what I'm seeing. I was quite often toe side on the G410's and the ZX5's are really close to dead center, a whisker low. I wonder if it the +1/2 vs. +1 shaft length?

74 (40/34), birdied three of the last 5 holes. Finally hit some greens today, but struggled hitting a “top spin cross court forehand” with driver for awhile. That’s my big miss and it’s SO hard to get rid of mid round. Played the Cobra F9 Speedback today. I like the feel of it a LOT more than the Max LS.

Slapped it around for a 74 today in Va. on a funny note I played my last 12 holes with an older Asian couple that kept calling me Godzilla after every tee shot. Getting more used to the mew irons and the ball flight that is a bit higher than the PXGs. Best news is no pain in my elbow so I can play again tomorrow with no issues.

Our course had a 1pm shotgun tournament booked, so our usual tee time this morning was an 8am shotgun.  My wife decorated our cart with two American flags on top.  Our usual couple we play with wasn't there, but we played with regulars at the course; one guy retired army vet with an Army golf bag.

Not having played since last Sunday, I managed to get around the course with an 81... only one double, but no birdies; 2 sand saves and 30 putts. I beat my wife... 😂 not literally!!  She shot 90, but did have 2 birds on #2 and #17.

Son and I decided at the last minute to play a round today.  We were able to get a tee time at Marengo Ridge in Marengo IL.  Never been there before but we'll definitely be back.  Great course.  Well maintained.  Balls rolled a long way, which was cool.  Only weird thing was that it looked like every knuckle dragger was there dragging their feet on the greens. 

We both got birdies on the dogleg short par 4 fifth hole, only my second ever, on different approaches.  He managed to clear the dogleg and land just shy of the green which gave him a short chip and a putt, while I landed my drive right at the curve and hit my best approach shot of the day to a foot from the cup.

I'd been working on my driving recently and it paid off today.  Just absolutely crushing (for me) the driver, only one shot was badly mishit.  Really striping my 3H, too.  My irons were a little hit or miss so I tried using my new driver grip on the back nine.  Consistency was better and I overshot a few, which is great because I usually leave myself short.

Wedge game was iffy.  Putting was atrocious.  Would have killed for a few more three putts, sadly.

One of my favorite things in life is cracking a terrible joke or making a funny comment, then watching someone's delayed reaction as they realize what I said.  My son was ribbing my poor putting and I called myself Jabba the Three Putt.  Took him about three seconds before it hit him and he just doubled over in laughter.  Had to take a few steps away and reset over his shot.

Shot a 104.  Really one of the more satisfying rounds I've had in a while.  Hope to get back out soon!

- 34/41 = 75 (+3)
- 6/15 FIR
- 12/18 GIR (4 birdies)
- 35 Putts (2 3-putts, 13 2-putts, 3 1-putts)

For the first time in a while, things came together for a good chunk of the round. My brother-in-law joined me for the round this morning and having a second person really helped me to spend just a touch longer visualizing shots and putts. 

I hit 11 of the first 12 greens, had three eagle opportunities and rolled in a 35-foot birdie putt on the par 3 No. 6 hole for the first birdie on that hole all season for me.

Biggest thing I did different was that I worked through nearly a full Rypstick workout before teeing off. Normally it takes a couple holes for me to completely get loose, but the 50+ swings in the Rypstick workout really gets you warmed up. Additionally, it does seem to add a few miles per hour for a bit as well. First shot on course was a 260-yard 4 hybrid and I didn't feel like I was swinging hard at all!

I unfortunately started to press a bit after hole 12, realizing I had a good shot at breaking par with the way I was playing. Driver got a little squirrelly and cost me some strokes down the stretch, including an ugly double bogey on the only par 5 on the back. Just started to play a little too tight. Oh well. Feels good to get a good round in, probably my best in well over a month.
