Hey, look on the bright side Foz, using the new income thresholds, they won't be sending you a Form 1099 👍.

78 (39/39), four birdies, a triple and a double. Ugh. Outside of two holes it was a very good round! Cold!!!! 50*, slight breeze, overcast, but we had the course to ourselves. Good day!

Bad front nine... good back nine!  45/38 for 83 at my home course back playing at 6000 yards again.  My driver was acting up again until hole #11, then it seemed normal, not sure what happened.

The good news is that I birdied #1 and #18; love making birdies on my nemesis hole #18!!  The bad news is that my swing took a holiday on the par 5 #5 hole... I took a 9.  I cannot recall ever making worse than triple on that hole, and that was probably when the wind was in my face blowing 20+ mph.  No wind today at all; not one shot out of those nine was any good.

I lasted 6,000+ up to 3 years ago.  The guys just decided that it wasn’t fun playing from Those Tees.  
We’re all enjoying the shorter Tee boxes.  

 

I should move up to the senior tees... maybe next spring.  Problem is that my wife and I play with other couples and friends that are 20-25 years younger than I am, and they like playing from our Blues tees.  I've been playing there for the past 6 years, and I can navigate around the course pretty well most of the time.  Our sister course is longer, but actually easier to play than our course... if I played from the senior tees!!  Should have!

Actually the younger guy 65-70 suggested we move up a Tee box.  I didn’t argue.  
On the Execs we all moved up maybe 2-21/2 years ago.  Lately a couple guys have even moved up even one more.  Whatever they want fine with me if it makes them keep up with the group.  
At this point I’m all about everyone having a good time.

*** Personal Best Alert 74 ***

I don't know what's going on of late. My level of play over the past handful of rounds has been as good as its ever been.  We played Mesa Del Sol yesterday and I tied my personal best from over 30 years ago with a 37/37 😊.  2 bogies and one birdie on the front and one bogey on the back.  The guys I played with are not our groups better golfers and, when we got in after the round to have a beer, they insisted I transfer my score onto a clean card - saying "we don't want our train wrecks tarnishing that performance" 😁.

They mentioned how consistent I was hitting everything and that I hit every fairway and green in regulation.  I knew I hadn't, so we went back through the round and annotated those on the new card. The tally; 13/14 FIR and 12/18 GIR. 32 putts and no penalties.  Putting for birdie more often and having short putts for pars is a game I hope stays with me a while longer.

Congratulations and welcome to the elusive "Bounce Back Club". This club is reserved for those that have been ripped apart by Yellow Ball and turned your game around to shut him up. I probably shouldn't have just opened that can or worms but he already beat me down and I bounced back.

Played Friday and this morning 9.  I’m at the “bottom” of the Roller Coaster ride again.  Both mornings cold (43-46) light wind.  First 3 holes really bad , all over the place then kind of straighten out.  I still haven’t gotten thru my thick skull that when it’s that cold to add a club or 2.  
Greens both courses were not bad, cut both mornings and were rolling decent.  Made a couple decent putts to save Par.

Tomorrow morning Weatherman is threatening 39*!!  Not pleasant for this group of Ole Farts.

Dang, that sounds way too much like the weather we ran from last month.  No doubt has the citrus growers on edge 😬.

They probably are watching closely. Have a few groves close by, good stuff!

Raised from a pup in Ft. Lauderdale and we and most neighbors had orange, grapefruit, lemon, and a mango trees.  Those made for some hellishly good overripe dodge-fruit fights. 🙂

Tuesday morning 39* @ Tee Time.  It was COLD for us old guys!! 
We played 1, 2, 7, 8 & 9.  All the good holes & Par 4’s then hit breakfast.  Best part of the morning. 
Nothing was going anywhere, ball was just not traveling at all.
