    Was able to get out today and play way more golf than I had expected. 18 this morning followed by another 18 this afternoon. Played decent and drove the ball great. Iron play was decent and short game was blahhh blaahhh blaahhh. However the putter was starting to heat up on the second 18.

    I did miss some fairways but but am I glad to see distance and height back in my golf game.

    Match play round (singles) this morning as part of a season-long club event. Played well on the front and was up 3 after 9. Leaked oil on the back 9 but had a great up & down out of the bunker on #17 to win the match. Wedges game was solid today. Can't wait to see how the Tour B XW-1 wedges perform!

    Our course will host the state open this year and greens keep rolling faster and faster. Hopefully, this will help the transition at Firestone.

    Oh just knock it off fellas! Lol

    I donít have time for much of this practicing crap. Iíll be playing 36 (at minimum) the week leading into it, but right now Iím just trying to survive.

    Iím going to stick with the theory that a lot of my lifetime best rounds, Iíve gone in a little rusty.

    Iíve been swinging a weighted club trainer to just try and keep my swing speed up a couple dozen times a night. I havenít even had time to get out the SuperSpeed sticks. No worries, point me in the direction of the tee box and tell me, letís go! Iíll be ready.

    And if not, Iíll be ready to have a blast. That much Iím planning on regardless of what kind of golfer I am at the event.

    I plan to play well. But if itís not there (and thatís usually a hole by hole thing for me), I will guarantee that Iím 100% event ready and will bring the fun. I canít guarantee that Iíll end the event with the same number of Bridgestone balls that I start with.

    Iíve never carried one, but are ball retrievers allowed? :)

    Count me in on that! I canít wait until they kick my butt all over the course, but the chance to play against them is exciting. Itís going to be a culture shock all the way around for me. Iím used to being the best golfer in the group and having to take a driver type swing at an uphill 20ft putt. Slow doesnít even begin to describe the greens Iím used to. Iím truly scared of the greens at Firestone, lol.

    I wonít be the best golfer and Iíll have to learn to putt on real greens. Iíve putted on them before so that part should be doable. Itís been a long time since I havenít been the best golfer in the group. Iím not even very good but my usual playing partners are even not gooder. My middle son gives me a run for the money anymore, but he has a mental block playing against me, ha.

    The good news for Bridgestone Operations is every time I step onto the course there's a high probability of burning through a sleeve of balls. Today was better than average...only two in the water. Oh well, just bought 4 dozen RX so I should be good until the event.
