My playing partner had a hole-in-one yesterday!  

 

73 years old and his first ace.   We've been playing together for years and he's been really close many times.  It was fantastic to see the ball finally disappear into the cup.

 

Plus it was a total bonus day. Some years the course is covered with snow by now.  

Congrats, alfriday101, make sure he registers on the web for the hole in one clearing account at

Played Cresc3nt Oaks in TarponnSprings, FL today as our club was over seeding.  Played the back nine first so I shot a 47(back 9)/46(front 9): 93.  Struck the ball well off the tee but approach shots not so good. Seemed like all my wedges came up a club short today.  That said, I did have a birdie on the par 5 #2 hole and it held in the net skins game for $12…woo hoo! BTW, temp was 48* at tee time and warmed up to 64*.

Followed up the 74 with a solid 84 at Desert Hills today... I absolutely knew the Golf Gods were going to hammer me for making that post and updating my index 😆.  The pins were in the toughest positions we'd ever seen; some just downright nasty.  I told myself several times NOT to get above the pin because of the severe downslope.  I don't follow my own advice too well.  Fortunately none of those ended up costing me too much, but the par 3's had my number as I DB all but #17. The pitcher of Kiltlifter after the round made things all better.

Had a good day today.  I want to lament the two three putts that would have given me a 79, but 81 will do.  I'm also quite pleased that I kept the card free of doubles for the first time in months.   Pretty close to an 'exceptional' score in the index, but not quite.  It was a tale of two 9's.  Shot 44 on the front then went on a tear and was 2 under through 15 before the bogies caught back up with me again. I knew what the score was on 18 and went for it trying to get another birdie before the golf gods gently said not today.  I hit a great drive, a very poor three wood into a tree, then was in jail for the third shot.  Still, I had to go for it.  So I attempted a hero shot under a low tree branch with what I thought was a hooded 4 iron -- Turns out my tags told me after the fact that it was a 6 iron.  🤦‍♂️.    I struck it really well... directly into the large limb I was trying to get it under.  Fortunately it caught the bottom and kicked forward leaving me with 133.  I didn't hit that particularly well either leaving me with a very long two putt which I converted for Bogie.  

Driver was outstanding all day.

Long Irons were hit and Miss

Short Irons & Wedges were very solid

Chipping Pitching didn't hurt me today & were fairly solid otherwise.

Putter -- was very iffy on the front, lots of missed opportunities, then got hot on the back.  

Side note I decided to clean sweep my game golf profile and start fresh.  It's kind of nice to have all this data again.

Early morning 9, still chilly 45* but sunny after 8:00am.  Shot a 40,+4.   
Driver was behaving,  chipping & putter we’re doing OK also.  Mid irons could have been a little more consistent. 
I left myself in some poor spots on the green which led to a couple of Bogeys.

What are the odds?

 

I posted above that on Monday my playing partner got a hole in one.  Well, it happened again.

 

The same group played today and a different playing partner aced the same hole.  His shot was almost identical to ace on Monday.  He is 64 and this was his 6th hole in one.  

 

I hope we get to play later in the week--it's my turn for an ace.  

 

Anyone want to calculate the odds of a player in the same group acing the same hole in back to back rounds.  My head hurts just thinking about it--okay, it could be the celebratory scotch.

43/39 for 82 playing the senior tees today with wind 25-35mph.  Absolutely brutal!!  The only thing good about today was the 72º temperature.  Not a good day putting.

Floridian linksters really like to bust balls, don't they?

I almost froze my ass off just walking the dog that you see above.

I suppose that I could try DeSantisland myself if it weren't for the warrants.

 

Have fun, Foz.  I know you can do better with that GIR number.

Thanks BostonSal, I have been playing with a torn tendon in my right shoulder from auto accident in July(waiting for SWMBO to recover from her shoulder surgery before I get mine) my right leg is numb from 3 bulging lower back discs, hoping for relief in mid December from a Radio Frequency Ablation(from same accident). It is what it is so I’m not gonna sweat it.  BTW, at 48* we still wear shorts and a light pullover.

Get well soon, Foz. 

Probably because I use a 1990s flip phone and don't know how to text, I can't translate SWMBO,

but I certainly wish her the best as well.

As for here, I've gone back to wearing a covid mask while walking the dog, not for health reasons--I've had my three jabs-- but to keep my face warm.  

Also, with a hoodie and Ray Bans, I kind of like the Darth Vader look.

43/40 at Desert Hills yesterday.  Having had a handful of sub 80 rounds in recent weeks has me really focused on that goal.  Seeing my final tally begin with 7 is addictive 😊. My ability to do so is a fine line right now and seems to hinge primarily on a couple extra FIR's and avoiding those irritating 1-2 poorly struck shots.  Yesterdays off the tee misses weren't that errant but just happened to either have poor lies or trees that prevented straight at the pin aim points.  A couple feet this way or that way would have made a huge difference...  😐.  

Hole #11, par 5.  The large tree on the right is about 290 yards from the white tee.  We try and aim to the left side of the fairway to be clear of it and have an open second shot of ~200 yards to the uphill, slight dogleg right, green.  A poor drive usually requires a layup to the creek edge.  I hit my best (longest) drive of the round about 30 yards short of the tee and right on the edge of the rough.  

I should have just taken my lick and layed up, but I chose to try and lift a 5w around with a cut... catching a branch and dropping down under the canopy. I salvaged a bogie with a better than average 4i punch shot, but was sure thinking birdie walking off the tee.

Our threesome came to hole number 6 yesterday full of great memories.  On Monday, D got a hole in One.  Our next round on Wednesday, K got a hole in one.  And yesterday...

 

none of us hit the green on our tee shots.  As a group, we played the hole three over.  Ah, back to normal.

Friday Bacon Boyz 9.  7:00am, 48*, heavy fog and no wind.  
Had a decent morning, I guess not being able to see the Pin or the Flag helped.  Had a +3 with 1 bird.  Greens were recently punched with what looked like water jet and they rolled rather well.

Got out for a 55* degree day to a local course that I have played often in the past 15 years so I know it well. 

The key was that I did not get into any trouble off the tee or if I had a semi blind shot, i was able to make a great swing and put the ball on the green.  Similar numbers as usual in terms of fairways and greens, but felt a bit more in control of my game which surprised me due to the lack of play since late October.  My goal was to break par this year and I could have done it yesterday had it not been for 2 bogeys to finish.

Score: 72 +1 (2 birdies and 3 bogeys)
