39/42 for an 81. putted reasonably well, but back nine wind was really blowing so struggled with club selection on a few holes. Round taking 5 hours didn't help, back nine had 3 groups on one tee. Need to work on a knockdown shot.

Knockdown is something I need to play with too. We get plenty of windy days and I don't have a knockdown in my repertoire, so all I can do is put it up there in the wind and pray! :LOL:

Week and a half off is killing me. :ROFLMAO:

Played Monday and Tuesday from the tips at one of the courses I frequent, something I’m going to make myself do there all year because I’m just too comfortable from the blues. Plays 6950, shot 84 on Monday and 82 yesterday. 😢

43/42 = 85. Beautiful day, around 75 degrees, sunny and calm. Course was packed so it was a slow round, but not unbearably slow (just under 4 hours).

Monsoon over past month has turned many a course near me into massive mud pits...walked today at Blue Heron Fords Colony and literally every step was a depressed impact....That poor course. FatBoySlim left about 14,000 imprints out there. It's a longass walk. 32 plugged balls....87 shots. Not a good first impression of being there....

Net -3 on 6825 72.8/127. First time out here in over a week and it went really, really well. 25 putts can do that. Buddy had a lot more rust than I did, but we had some fun before it rains for the next few days.

The only thing I shot today was a red squirrel with the Benjamin Marauder pellet gun. I had one in my garage last week and his relative was guilty by association.:)

87 yesterday, with a putrid 37 putts (about 5 above my avg). Short game and putting were nightmares.

After a surprisingly good range trip last week, I decided to put the Catalyst shafts back in the bag for a while. They did not disappoint yesterday. I'd seen some distance loss with them compared to my Nippon-shafted set, but that was not the case yesterday. I hope it sticks.

New all-time PB today! 39/36 = 75 (+2 on the front, +1 on the back).

8/12 FW, 9/18 GIR, 31 putts. Everything felt good and was working reasonably well today - left a few birdie putts short, but I'm not gonna complain! First time I've broken 80 in about 3 ½ years, previous PB was a 79. Beautiful sunny, calm day, warm enough to play in shorts and a polo, course was wide open in front of us - it would have been a great day even if I hadn't scored as well. Feels good.

90 yesterday on an extremely tight & challenging course. First time out playing & next time I now know what to do off of the tee. Had a bunch of penalties from errand tee shots.

Thanks! Started off with a birdie on #1, bogeyed the next 4 holes in a row, then caught fire - 10 pars and a birdie in the next 11 holes. Bogeyed #17 and finished with a par on #18. I was trying so hard not to think about my score because I didn't want to put too much pressure on and melt down, but I knew I had a great day going.

We're playing again tomorrow, and I'm almost afraid to set foot on the course - I figure the golf gods are going to take their revenge on me for today! :LOL:

Yesterday I shot a 40/45/85. Drove the ball well, almost to well as I hit 12/14 fairways. But I struggled hitting out of the soaked fairways after our 12 inches of snow last week. Kept hitting every thing short. I looked a muddy mess by the end of the round.
The last three holes I struggled with a stiff back as we faced a stiff breeze as the Temps started to drop. And finished double bogey,bogey, double bogey. :(
Highlight of the round came on hole Par 3 #4. 142 yards to pin , 9 iron that spun just a little to the right instead of releasing straight for a tap in birdie. Tee to show pitch mark.

50/45 95 I was honestly shocked when I added it up. Front nine was a disaster. No warm up double with driver behind tree. Workman like center of the green 2 putt par 3 2nd. Then
Lots of 6s and 7for the next 7. 5 lost balls in total. Putter was pretty money
Lotsa solid 2 putts. Only one 3 putt ended round 3 -4. Was pleased
With a chore.

Ugh, got my comeuppance for yesterday. 46/43 for an 89. But in all fairness, 25-30 mph winds didn't help matters much.

The heat
Shot a 39-38-77 with 3 birdies, a double, and some bogies and pars. Conditions were not ideal with fog and sloppy mud due to getting 2.75 inches of rain yesterday.

First 9 holes of the year today. Very wet and still a little snow in some places, but the course was beautiful for being covered a week ago. A perfect day out there and thoroughly enjoyed walking it.

as for the score shot a 43. Pretty tough course from 3400. I was overjoyed with my score for my first golf in about 2 months. Didn’t hit a bunch of great shots and had one penalty stroke as well so I’m feeling very good about my game after I shake some rust off and the course gets back to normal conditions.

40-39 - 79.

Had it rolling on the back 9 but finished bogey - double - bogey. A couple of poor putts and two full shots away from 74 or 75. Trying again tomorrow!!

40/41=81 Ugly round in the wind (20-25mph) and it kicked my butt today. Had some nice drives and pretty good approach shots. Short game and putter where good. Just some dumb mistakes that cost me quite a few strokes.

64......On a Par 3 course so 10 over.

Believe it or not, had some shots that were too good. I would stripe it and then fly the green. I don't mind though. First round of the year with my wife, so good to be out. We also had a single join up with us about a 4 holes in as we were being held up by the group in front. I offered him to play through or he was welcome to join us. We all had a nice tome,.

46/49 - 95. Same score totally different rounds. Golf is strange. Lost one ball on a lateral hazard that I ended up with a par. Today. Lost 5 yesterday.

1 penalty versus 6 strokes in yesterday’s round. 36 putts in each round. Same score. I got nothing.

Only thing you can do is shrug and say “It’s golf!”. 👍
