    Strengths: Decently long. Hitting the correct green from the wrong fairway. Pretty confident with a wedge. Chipping is usually ok. Putting is the best part of my game.

    Weaknesses: Tight courses. I can be a bit of a sprayer. Will lose a ball or 3 per round. Take too many risks. Can make 4 pars in a row and then completely forget how to golf for a couple holes.
    We'll work on that. Look forward to it man. Ill get my info posted here shortly.

    Well gentlemen, I'm in recovery from our invitational this weekend. I only played ok but it was a lot of fun and kind of a nice set up for Firestone, in keeping a positive attitude despite some struggles on the course. That should be easy, this seems like a fun group already.



    Not unrelated, I'm no longer open for tequila shots at 10 AM, regardless of the chaser...

    Was is a go big or go home kind of day? Tequila shots at 10 is bold move.

    Just so you know, I'm a hard pass on this one too. I played in a charity event last week and they had Two Ginger drinks (whiskey, ginger ale and a lime wedge) after the 5th hole. Those are tasty beverages but will likely forego one until the Firestone clubhouse after our round.

    I hadn't really intended it to be, I....Well I knew it would be but I didn't want to go that big. It's a fun event, Thurs-Sat, and it might have been rougher than it needed to be.

    I'm normally a couple beers every nine holes or so kinda guy, just to take the edge off and loosen up a touch. Now that our big tournament is over I'll get back to that. I did have a chip in on Saturday so that was nice.

    This is a big prep week for the Bridgestone Championship. I'm playing in a Pro-Am on Wednesday afternoon. Very curious to see how my index travels to another challenging course. Apparently I agreed to participate in a semi-serious skins game too. My pro said to bring extra money for the game. Ok!

    I've been training for Thursday and Friday. It's the Summer Solstice and we're celebrating with a two day trip to Sand Valley. Three rounds each day. The course is about three hours from my house. We're departing Thursday morning at 4:00. First tee time is 8:20. We expect to finish the third round around 8:15 - 8:30 PM. We're staying at the resort and repeating the same drill on Friday. First round is 6:30 AM. We're driving home after the third round.

    This trip is going to leave a mark. If it doesn't kill you, then it will make you stronger!!! At least that's the story right now.

    My Bridgestone carry bag is going to get a serious workout. I'll post some photos.

    Sunday is another 36. First round is 4 ball match play event. Second round is fun with friends. The good news is I walk 99% of my rounds and this led to dropping 10 lbs in the last 6-7 weeks. Can I lose 5 more this week!?!?

    No wedges yet. I imagine at the event... They teased a giveaway on their gram account for the XW-1s...

    I use scratch wedges and bought a RTX 3 a while back - RTX 3 is sooooo heavy, wondering how these will compare to scratch.

    I kind of hope they arrive a little early, going to be some anxiety if the first time I use them is under pressure. My chipping game is not strong to begin with.

    Cool video with Dan and Adam about ball fitting just dropped. Really interested to see what ball I am fit in to and what gains I see on the course from playing a ball fit to my swing.

    If we all get them at evemt, it will be an even playing field as no one will have practice chips. I imagine it would be frowned upon to use old clubs for the round.

    Might make it interesting.
