How'd you play?

While I have been able to get to the course to hit some pitch shots, I had not taken a full swing for a month before yesterday.  Hit a few on the range and it didn’t seem that bad.   Then I got in the course and it was terrible..  

8 FW, 2 GIR, 34 putts, 5 lost golf balls.  I didn’t add up the score until I was writing this and was surprised I broke 100;  ended up with a 97.  Overall,  it was a frustrating and mentally draining round.  I didn’t take the month break for any reasons other than I was out of town and rainy weather.  Part of me wants to get out,  practice and figure out what I need to do to improve and part of me is just done as I really didn’t miss playing that much.  Need to figure out a plan to work on my game and get myself back into gear.  

I think this happens to all of us from time to time. Life has its ups and downs weird events like you’ve described occur and subtly, without even realizing it, there’s an impact on our desire to play.

I don’t know when your season ends - is there enough time to plan a round at a special course and then work towards playing it? That often kicks my desire for playing back into gear. 
 

Good luck

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Had a half-decent knock this weekend, betterball stableford playing with a 6HC.

I was best score on 10 holes and we ended up with 40 points. Putter was working well with five good 1-putts from about 8 feet and a couple of long putts that pulled up a couple of inches short 🙂

We're finally beginning to settle in here in Florida. Last time I played was back in Ohio several weeks ago, today was the first time playing in Florida since last year.  The Bermuda fairways and greens took a bit of getting use to - but overall not a bad 88. 46 going out and 42 back in. This birdie on a 150 yd Par 3 helped the score.

Here is the video I made while testing the wonderful…

Edel EAS #4 putter

i was lucky to be making the video on the same day the putter caught fire, and I had my historic 23 putt day. A few of these putts are from off the green, so in my world, they don’t count as a putt, as they are shots that could have been taken with a wedge or whatever…

go check out the testing page for the Edel EAS putters, it’s pure money…

 

Fantastic putting performance!!  The Edel must have cemented its gamer status!  👏

Two observations....

1.  What are you doing with what looks like a down vest on when your location says SoCal and there are palm trees in view??

2.  Who was playing in front of you that didn't fix that ball mark 1' from the cup on the 4th hole?  

I'm noticing the ball mark after playing this past weekend at a high end course in OCMD where our foursome fixed between 10 - 20 ballmarks on every green.  The greens there were really scabbed up and did not putt true at all.

“Adele” has been glued to my hands since I opened her box upon delivery. Easily the best putter I’ve ever used

right???  I was first out, so it was left-over from the day before. I fix millions of them, as well as empty 3-4 sand canisters every round. A few of us early birds fix a lot, as we play almost daily- the visitors seem to care very little about gouging our track

it’s pretty sad the way some people have no problem gouging the track, then leaving it for others to repair- 

a few years ago I saw a guy in a drunk 4-some behind me miss a short putt, then slam his putter into the green in disgust- needless to say we had some words and they did their best to repair the extensive damage- so many just have no respect

Didn't see any punch marks but there was definitely sand on the green. They were pretty slow which took quite a bit of adjustment for me.

Haven’t been able to play in a couple of weeks so although it was only in high 40’s it was sure nice to get out there.  And played well on top of it.  A couple of holes got away from me and the greens had been sanded, had some squirrelly putts. Finishing up the year on a good note!

Kings Deer is more of a links style course than parkland.  There’s water that runs through the course so bump and run shots don’t really come into play much but otherwise it’s described as a links course.

Fun day, cannot wait to get out there again.

Had “Chamber of Commerce” South TX weather for a leisurely Sunday round with my dad. The green surface situation at our club this season has been like trying to putt through peanut butter and I’ve cycled through ~20 wands trying to find something that works without much success. With the temps dropping the past couple weeks and the Super subsequently dropping the mower reels, I have finally begun to roll in some proper putts with the old faithful Bobby Grace M5K-GT TC.

Less than stellar ball striking day (3/14 FWY, 15/18 GIR, 29 PUTTS) that included (6) birdies. Started out par, bogey, birdie and then made a very sloppy bogey on the short par 5 4th but the putter was showing definite signs of life. Bagged a fat turkey on 5/6/7 with 3 straight 30+ foot bombs (walked each dead in middle the last 10 feet). Played clean all the way to the house with a few clutch saves, missing only one green and adding 2 more birds on the back nine par 5s. The last on 18, a forty footer for a big bald bird that stopped dead on the left edge. Tap-in for 67 (-4) and my lowest round of the season by a stroke. Shot Scope had me making 172 feet on the moss… not too shabby. Got everything to the hole and only missed low side twice.

Basked in the glory of feeling temporary control over my golf game on Monday and then rolled out of bed Tuesday morning with a raging case of vertigo. To say that it’s been a humbling past few days would be an understatement. Looking like it may be awhile before I can secure an appt with an ENTS, so who knows when I’ll tee it up again. At least I didn’t post a stinker my last loop around the track but this situation seriously sux. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. I’m praying a little harder than usual for some give and yours would likewise be greatly appreciated. Adios for a bit (hopefully) muchachos.

PS - loved your Edel video @Sluggo42… despite it making me dizzy AF. That thing should be prefaced with a hurl warning for the equilibrium challenged 🤢

Shot 83/93 in our Fall two day tourney.  Not feeling particularly good about my game, I decided to play a different set of clubs just for giggles.  So my second set was: Wilson Triton driver, Bombtech 15* 3W, Exotics CBX119 4H, Hogan Ptx irons4-PW, Hogan Tkt 49/53/57* wedges and EVNROLL ER6 putter.

Shot 41 on Wednesday Night Shootout(9 holes at Heritage Isles) and Shot 45/44:89 today at Plantation Palms with 2 birdies, par 5 & par 4. Not bad for a set of clubs that I have not used in awhile.

The Wilson driver was awesome!

Got called to play Wolf today at the other course in town.  I have not been hitting the ball well all week, and my right shoulder is still sore, but what the heck!!  Stunk up the first hole, but being Player 4, it didn't cost me.  

I won the 2nd hole with a birdie, so started feeling a little better.  My turn to Wolf on #4; lost the hole to a guy that hit his 3rd shot to 3 feet and made birdie.  My next turn came on hole #8, a very downhill par 3; hit middle of green, but left the 25 foot uphill R2L birdie putt 2 feet short... push.  

My next Wolf hole was #12, a dogleg left uphill par 5.  I reached the green in 3 shots and was the only one to make a par.  On #16 a blind tee shot I split the middle and on the green but missed a downhill birdie putt that should have broke a foot... but didn't!  Another push.  

#17 and #18 are reserved for the two players down the most quarters... I was up 5.  I totally screwed up both holes; finishing bogey, double but the other guys saved me.  I was happy shooting 40/42 for an 82, but shoulda, woulda, coulda broke 80.  Next time.

So. I've had some up and down golf play lately, sadly resulting in me moving further from my goal of more bogey-golf rounds vs worse... Been making too many doubles, a few triples and even a quad here and there...

Had one 9 hole score of a nice 41 recently - with a pretty sweet up and down from a greenside bunker on #9 for par - and a few 9-holes around 45/bogey golf, but more rounds are 48-50-52 (for whatever reason(s) I seem to hit the even numbers a lot - maybe I should start betting online on some craps games or roulette wheels 😆).

And it's a little bit of everything that pops up at different times - a bad tee shot, a chunked shot that goes half the desired distance, a bladed wedge that goes twice the desired distance, a push or a pull that lands me in a trouble spot, a 2-chip, a 3-putt, etc, .........

I'm trying (emphasized) to avoid compounding errors and to plan careful shots within my capabilities, but .. well, you know: man plans and the golf gods laugh!!

On the positive side - I do seem to hitting a few more "good" full shots each succeeding round; the "bad" shots are not all as bad as they used to be; the short game has its bright moments, including bunkers which have evolved from total stress inducers to now usually getting onto the green into a decent position and putting slowly continues to improve also.

Anyway, with my stoopit back hurting .. and hurting worse after playing 9 with a friend yesterday (been going to acupuncture twice a week; going next week to try "trigger point injection" therapy) .. it's probably better for me to take some time off from swinging .. even though the weather here has been really nice so far thru Oct .. and go to work on the mental game 🏌️‍♂️🧠🚫💪

Been happy with my putting in recent weeks.  Playing primarily 9-hole golf, been making more one-putts each round. Today  it was 3 two-putts and 6 one-putts.  My chipping onto the green helps those stats and it is the kind of day I have from tee to green that makes the difference of above, at, or below handicap.

16 putts 

3W was awesome off the tee today.  irons were ok but i’m still costing myself strokes with partial wedge shots. 

first round trying out left hand low for putting. no 3 putts all day. stroke felt really smooth and the ball was coming out of the center of the putter face
