Somehow I injured my right shoulder early this last week, then aggravated it by trimming bushes.  

I played today and couldn't get my driver working on the front nine.  Shot 45 (+8).  Bad hits hurt, so I kept saying to myself "Don't do that!"  Well, that doesn't work.  

On #10 I just put a smooth swing on it, and best drive so far... par.  Same on #11... par.  Game started to come around, mostly because my short game improved.  I did have another poor drive on #16, but saved par with a close pitch shot.  Bogeyed #18 after a decent drive.  Shot 36 (+1) for an 81 for this wounded golfer.

That'll teach you to do yard work instead of golfing!  LOL

So true.  It also supports the argument that most higher handicap players should choose the next stronger lofted club - especially if borderline on yardage.

This is where having spent more range sessions with the SC200 and gathering min/max/avg carry distances has really helped me.  My last range session I worked only with my 8i-AW and hit 2 large buckets.  I'm really liking the consistency and gapping with the ZX5's.  I'm going to repeat this with the 4i-7i next session.  As is typical for most of us, getting consistent yardages on the long irons is more challenging and where @cnosilcomment above is most applicable.

I'm also taking a tip from @Tom the Golf Nutabout making range sessions more deliberate and focused on an objective - as opposed to just mindlessly smashing balls.

... 👍 to both you guys. I have said this many times but every mid to high index player (and some low index players) should commit to playing 18-36 holes taking one more club for every iron shot. They should run the "risk" of flying greens and take full swings. If they have 150yds and that is how far they think they normally hit their 7 iron, they should hit a 6 iron. If the pin is in the back they should still hit 6 iron and deal with the chip back if they do indeed fly the green, which almost all will not.

... One of my Aha! moments came when I started hitting more club anytime I even considered it. In-between clubs, a slight wind in my face or a little uphill and if I was even thinking 6 or 7 iron I went with 6 iron. I learned about 80% of the time more club was a better choice and with a front or middle pin the other 20% I had a reasonable putt from beyond the flag. When folks watch tour events they should notice Pro's are past the pin 50% of the time when they are not pin high.

The driver wasn’t quite as “slicy” which was good and my iron play was spotty. But for me the highlight was no 3 putts on newly aerated and sanded greens. Being selected to test an Evnroll putter earlier this year was the push I needed to concentrate more on putting. I need to test irons next. 😂😂

Have you worked out which side of the bed the Evnroll gets?  My wife say's the spare bed isn't all that uncomfortable. 😆

I do everything except cut the grass but that’s getting old.  Maybe another couple years.  Cost me $80 month for a guy to cut, trim & edge.

I'm like you... hate paying someone else to do stuff that I can do.  It's not the money, it's the principle... well, that and I'm frugal.

He cuts once a week during growing season usually 8 months, 2 times rest of year. The grass is Zoysia and it’s thick can’t be done with a regular mower. 
I’ve taken 2 trees out and probably 20 + shrubs to keep yard neat.  The developer who built my house overdid it.  We redid the layout so it’s a bit easier for me.  SWMBO had me switch out shrubs for flowers and flowering plants.

Played Diamante Country Club in Hot Springs Village, AR, with my good friend and previous neighbor of 18 years.  Hit the ball pretty solid most of the day.  On the front, I birdied the last hole to shoot 37.  Not sure why, but the back was a bit different.  I was still striking the ball well, but wasn't making putts.  Seems that speed of the greens was different and I was having difficulties with speed control.  Anyway 42 on the back with 6 bogies, most of which were due to poor distance control or not well read.  My approach shots left me longer putts or missed the greens requiring some delicate chips.  79 for the day and my friend edged me out with a 78.  Overall, pleased with tee shots and irons with a few exceptions here and there.

Still looking for a place in SCG. Except for the common areas and golf courses, the only grass allowed is the kind you don't mow.  And, after decades of mowing grass, I'm certain I won't miss it.
