How'd you play?

Played a scramble yesterday with my son and my dad at River Heights.  Our fourth backed out due to the possibility of bad weather so we just played an extra ball which actually wound up bailing us out a few times.  We wound up shooting a 69 but the highlight was the eagle we got on hole 16.  And by "we" I mean my son.  He took all the shots and as nervous as he was on the putt, he dropped it dead in the hole.

Weather did get a little dicey but we managed to finish the round.  Had a blast AND we introduced my dad to a new restaurant afterwards!

Friend of mine goes to Hot Springs Village at least twice every year, to play the range of courses they have.  He raves about it quite a bit.

I have a standing invite to go with him, but he almost always goes in April or October, which are quarterly reporting months for me.  I can't get away  😞

I just have to quote this for the truth it represents   LOL
 

 

... So True. When you get to play a ton it seems like a huge cargo ship caught in the Suez Canal. Whatever direction you are going in, it seems to be very difficult to turn around. When playing poorly or really well it always seems to take several rounds to start turning the ship. But once it starts turning it is really hard to stop it.  🤪

First round at the Granada course, Favorite course in the rotation, elevation changes, fast bend grass greens , stunning views. If you get a chance to play there, you won't be disappointed.

Second was the Cortez Course, more tree line course, not as much elevation changes, tons of dog legs very few straight holes.

Third round is my second favorite course of the rotation, stunning views, seems like every hole was an elevated green, fast bend grass, lengthy one of the bunch. Had a rough start on this one but settle in.image.png.1744eddef8109eaa3403ddd05b850d70.png

Above course looks a place where I'd be playing all day to avoid doubles.

Pretty to look at for sure.   Not for me to play, though.  Has 90+ written all over it.

This is really a lovely analogy.  It's perfect.   LOL

I wish it weren't, but....   yeah, it didn't work for me wanting to get my age 45 distance back, either.

Yes Golf is stupid and weird!

Though I finish off the season with one last game and play like crap. I wasnt really into it, however made one outstanding sand saves that almost hole out that made me come back.

Didnt want to end the season with one of my worst scoring day  , play yesterday playing great was -2 after 6 hole. Driver was great, wedge play was great , putting so-so but not awful, iron was good. Then I snap hook a driver on next hole . My only really terrible miss shot all day as I lost the ball.  Ended up 6 over  . Lost ball and not so good green reading on the tricky green later in the round. Also I need to stay positive after a lost ball and not let it ruin my next few holes.

Now I thinking of how I could not snap hook that one driver shot   that make me want to play one more time before i hang it up this season

Golf is stupid and weird.  And still addictive  , cant seem to put away my clubs yet

Today was a very good day. I thought I could feel my game coming back around recently, and today confirmed it.

I played in my Tuesday Members league, and with the exception of a couple of bad breaks, and some sloppy wedge play around the green, I couldn’t be happier. I shot 38-39-77 on our par 71 Fazio course.

My driver was good (other than two miscues)and my irons were terrific, to the point where I never took the cover off my 3 or 5 woods. My irons were better than they’ve been all year, by the time we came to the last 4-5 holes my confidence was soaring.
It felt so nice to play golf, not golf swing… just pick a club, look at the target, and let it go. That sounds so simple, but when you’re struggling, point and shoot isn’t your first thought, worrying where the ball will go is.

I’m waiting on a set of PXG irons I ordered last week, but the Rogue X were so good today, I had to fight myself not to call and cancel the order. Every time I want to replace them, they come out of the corner fighting tooth and nail to stay in the bag. I’m going to sleep on this tonight and make my decision tomorrow. When I’m hitting them well, I can’t imagine getting more out of a set. They just fit me very well.

On the other side of the coin, I threw away 4 or 5 stokes from within 20 yards of the green with my short game. That’s something that has to get better, and now that the oppressive summer heat has eased up, I’ll be willing to work on it at our short game area. I’m not going to stress over it tonight though… I’m going to just enjoy the things I did well.

Had a good day with my wedges made 6/10 saves

1. Tricky 70 yard PW 1/2 swing to a 8 feet

2 green short 25 yards
I was try to be to cute with lob and run 

Bladed the ball Got lucky the ball ran  along the  wet grass slowed it down to 6 feet of the hole 

3 Hit a great shot on par 3  Just off the green I was only 18 feet from pin  Pin was tucked close to the edge of the green. I had this slick  steep down hill chip just off the green  Had to play a touch tap chip to few inches of the hole It could easily run 10 foot or more pass the hole or stopped by tall grass before  the green 

4 short sided myself   Need 30 yard Plus clear over sand trap On awkward side hill upside lie Didn’t commit to shot my body didn’t line up properly with my shoulder LW flop attempt made only half way there  First miss

5 Over the green steep uphill to where I could only see top of the pin. This time I committed to the LW flop had easy lie and flop within 10 feet 

6 Front of the green. Was undecided what club to use very flat green Took out a 5 iron and tried to chip and misjudge length and spot.  was 25 feet short. 
2nd miss 
 

7 In the sand  Buried lie and long bunker shot 

Tried “chunk and run”  got to much ball and not enough sand   It sail 40 feet past the hole   3rd miss

My technical was not to good in the sand  I have two type of sand shots that I play and was in between techniques 

8  Way short of the green  47 yards   This is awkward yardage  to a front pin   The mistake was off the tee 

I could play a lob and roll or 1/2 swing high pitch   Went with lob and run and Ball didn’t roll out and was still 10 yards short  It had rained earlier and didn’t roll out as much as I though in drier conditions  The grass was short enough but should have walked closer to the green to check it out 

Also if this was 47 yards to back pin I think Lob and run is the obvious choice as landed on the green and run out is more predictable than bouncing the ball just in front of the green where the spots are not as flat 

4th miss

9 Ball in the front bunker 60 yards to pin water directly behind the green   This was the most scary shot  but I pulled it off a nice high LW ( had a good lie)  Lots of spin ball dropped within 6 feet and stopped 

I am generally better at “floater” type bunker shots  that drop dead   Can’t seem to master the ones that roll out  With “floater” I take little sand    For the “chunk and run” can not figure how to adjust how much sand and how hard to hit 

10 Didn’t want to count this one but just off the green  40 feet could have used putter  decide on hybrid and roll it to 3 feet

There are a lot of second tier resort courses that are in trouble. I went to one in Santa Fe last summer that was owned by the adjacent Hilton which had gone under.

You are so right...
