How'd you play?

Interesting comments.  Out of curiosity, would you say there was a mental issue/lack of commitment that had some influence on the quality of the shots?

 

... Lack of concentration. #8 is a short hole where I lay up from the silver as it is about a 240 carry over water to reach the green, but from the golds tees were back and it was 222 by my rangefinder so I drove the green and the water certainly demanded my concentration. I didn't recognize I swung too hard til after the shot and as you know it doesn't take much. Not like I swung out of my shoes, I just gave both drives a little extra resulting in a low draw and a high push. The other 2 par fives I just missed the green and the Bermuda rough is brutal right now. If I play the golds again I will be aware of playing different tees and play my normal game.

I don’t experience that at all and Ive worn the socks mentioned in the middle of DC hit and humid weather where you sweat just opening the house door. Ive also worn them in July in Orlando with no issues. Ive used them with FJ, Puma, Nike and Adidas. Worn them during hiit cardio and never had issues

Maybe it's just a foot sweat difference between us. I know a lot of folks who do trail running (admittedly much different than golf, but while we're on the topic of sweaty feet) have moved away from waterproof shoes for the simple fact that your feet will get wet one way or another, and when you're out on the trails for hours the more important question is how fast do your shoes dry out. In that case the waterproofing that keeps water out also keeps water in.

I tend to sweat a lot in general (even at near freezing temps when I'm running I wear shorts) so on hot summer days my feet will always sweat. The difference is whether or not that sweat gets trapped in the shoes or not.

Just have to second this, basically 25 and above I am in shorts running in the winter and still sweating. Ok we can return to the regularly scheduled golf talk

Played what could be the last of a just a few rounds left for the year.  Hoping to get out a couple more times, but we will see what my schedule and weather allows.

Initially had an 8:45 tee time, but after an hour and half FROST delay, I got off to play.  The weather turned out to be pretty nice in the low 50's and luckily there was no wind, so no issue on temperature.

Had a fairly average round, but happy with ball striking.  The driver was a bit chaotic until the 12th hole, so I need to get that worked on.  I kept having an odd yardage for me of 113 yards (3 times).  Each time the pin was in the back so I elected to hit a hard SW and I was just a bit off so I was left 35 feet where I usually would expect to be a bit closer.  Maybe I should have hit the easy GW, but just did not want to go long and short side myself. 

Putted pretty well even though I had a couple 3 putts.  Had several slide by and was happy with my putts expect for the two that I had over 50 feet and hit one too hard and left one woefully short.

Score - 78 (2 Doubles and 3 birdies)

FIR - 5

GIR - 11

Putts - 34

Played Inverness Country Club in Birmingham. Shot 92, probably should’ve rescheduled because weather was pretty rough, but hey I love the game. Cold and rainy probably cost me 5-7 strokes. Fun yet quirky course with good greens in my opinion.

Played with a few guys from The Grint Akron at Raintree yesterday. It was wet and we were s l o w. Pooped out a 91, which, for the conditions, wasn't too bad. Looks like I'm done for the season because although I enjoyed the company, I didn't enjoy the play.

We had our league outing at Raintree. I hadn't played there in probably 25 years. I need to play there more often... it's a nice course.

Rain Tree is one of my favs, we should play next year.

Played Edgebrook down in Sandwich yesterday with my son, my dad, and a retired friend of mine.  Weather was great for this time of year, though a touch chilly, and the course was super wet from the constant rain from the past week.  We all played pretty badly but we had a great time.

Everything was shaggy and wet and I just couldn't adjust.  Lots of chunky shots.  Driver was offline a lot.  Irons, if they weren't short, they were pulled left. 

Putting was...surprisingly decent.  I tried more of a Happy Gilmore-style of putting where my hands were separated and I was facing more towards the hole than the ball.  LOL, drove my son nuts watching me do it, but it worked out pretty well.  Shot of the day was a 52 foot putt that stopped just inches to the right of the cup.

We combined to shoot about 430 (104 for me).  That plus the constant bathroom breaks for the two old guys 😂 lead to a near six hour round.  But we had a great time and I hope to get the same group together a few times next season.

Weather was crap for the past week. Rained every day. There was a break today so I took advantage. Still overcast but in the 50's. Everything was soft and it was a lift clean and place kind of day.  I actually felt good playing and I was the only one on the course at 10:15. No birdies but a few lip outs for tap ins. I hit everything straight as an arrow. Managed a 72 but it actually felt better than that. Driver was spot on and I was hitting 240 consistantly in soft wet conditions. Really liking the Maxfli Tour ball. I'm glad I got to test it because it will be my gamer for next season for sure.

Nothing but rain in northeast Ohio the last 2 weeks. Played yesterday and the course was Saturated but playable. Only a few other knuckleheads outside myself playing. 46/45. It was the best I putted but boy was I chunking the ball. It was so soaked, you literally had to lick the ball off the turf. Overall I was pleased considering the poor conditions and how well I struck the ball outside of a few shots

Started out well and was even par after 8, then stepped on the bogey train and couldn't get off.  Ended up shooting 80.

Got a game in.  Had not played for almost a month.  Day getting short started play at 1 pm and only able to get 16 holes in before it got dark and colder 

Was too stubborn and trying to draw my irons cause I had great success last time  last time out.  For whatever draw reason work on the first green. But was not that reliable. I could not aim for the pin which is what worked really well when my draw is working. Ended up hitting the fade for last part of the  round to get on green 

my wedge play was slightly off. Felt like i needed a slight forward press.which I though I eliminated Guess it a feel thing   Putting was bad. Maybe there too many things going on in my head cause I been practising putting indoors and there’s too many theory in my head Has three putted 4 holes  Ended up putting the last 6 holes with my hybrid  which was much better 

Anyways I  happy to be outdoors today. 
I think that’s it’s for the season but I know I said a month ago

I didn't play yesterday; my wife played with the Ladies Group, so I had to stay home while the tree pruning guy was here.  I picked up the branches, and I was more sore than usual today.

But that didn't stop us from playing today!  Rolled into the clubhouse parking lot at 9am for a 9:46 tee time... 34º with a few clouds, some sun and a slight north wind.  🥶  Putting the cart cover on the rental cart helped, along with the 4 layers of clothes.  Of course, couldn't swing very well... driver particularly.  Worst driving day in quite awhile.  Hit my irons pretty well; too bad my aim was off.  Chipping and putting was the usual... pretty good.  It helped when the sun came out a little more and I shed a layer.  Warmed up to 50º.  Shot 82.

More rain coming tomorrow.

There are times I feel that if I could get back every cent I have spent on golf, from clubs, bags, attire, balls, tees, rounds of golf, lessons, range balls and anything else golf related, I would be happy to take the cash on move on to another, less aggravating pastime!  So, what time are we playing this weekend? 🤣

Played twice over the weekend.  On a lark, because it's near end of season and this is my MO every year at end of season, I'm doing all kinds of stuff.  

Amusingly and ironically, in spite of hitting my Original One well lately, I put my Cobra SpeedZone in the bag a couple weeks ago.  And, instead of one of my usual shafts for it, I put an Aldila NV ProtoPype 80 in it, at 44", which is a half inch longer than I've been playing driver the last couple years.  So of course, I've hit it well, unlike how I hit this stick when I first got it.  LOL

I've also been playing Ping Eye2+ irons, because it's experiment season.  Also threw my test 6 iron with Fuji Pro 115 shaft in the bag, which I used for every 6i shot that came up.  Ironic that I had quite a few 6i shots.

For Sunday, I put my Ping Scottsdale TR Craz-E in the bag, it was a Xmas-gift-card purchase several years ago, and largely hasn't worked for me.  See "experiment mode" again.  Also removed the test 6i for Sunday, played it as a normal round.

Saturday, score wasn't good, shot 87.  Irons were not good to occasionally OK, except for the test 6i, which I hit quite well, and a 3i shot on the long par 3 #16, into the wind.  Actually putted well using my Golden Ram blade putter, making my Sunday putter choice even dumber than usual.  

Sunday was different.  Shot +2 on the front, which was as high as I could've shot; the putter was the problem.  Specifically, I didn't adjust to distance control with the slower response in the center of the putter face from the TR grooves.  I left a lot of putts a foot short, but on line.  Back nine was +6, with a double on the par 3 #13 after a screaming hook 6i some 40 yds left of the green.  It's funny how tough it is to get up and down pitching back to a green that runs away from you, when you've also shortsided yourself.  Shocking.

A 79 on a day I couldn't make a putt, thanks to my amazing thinking about experimentation.  I'll take it.
