Breakfast Egg Round (Scrambled)




What an interesting [partial] round I had last night. It's becoming very typical that I only play 5-6 holes when I go out. The older I get, the less patience I have. I simply could not get off the tee. I only had 1 decent drive on #12 which led to an almost birdie. The interesting part is how often I saved bogey/par when I was basically wasting shots off the tee. The first hole started with a low screamer that went a whopping 71 yards. I followed it with a Hybrid that missed clearing the bunker by a foot or so. Too bad. It would have been pretty nice. I ended up saving a bogey from there. The next hole, I sprayed one way right off the toe of the driver then yanked my next shot into the bunker. I hit a nice shot out of the bunker and barley missed the par putt. Finally on 12, I had a nice drive followed by a decent 3W. I pulled my SW a tad and missed the birdie putt, but I love easy pars. One 13, I hit a pitiful worm killer that hit the red tee marker, popped into the air and landed in front of the tee boxes. From there, I hit a beautiful 7i to 5' and made the putt. At this point, the other players were shaking their heads, but I told them that I wanted to lay up to a comfortable distance. 14 had another pitiful drive followed by a 3w from the rough that went through a tree. Another nice 7i and lipped the par putt. I skipped over to 18 and played sprayed another drive to the right. I followed that with a beautiful 3w short of the green where I yanked a SW, but made a 16' par putt.

I am amazed at how well I scored giving how bad my tee shots were. Hopefully this means that my short game is coming around.

Damn. Those tee shots look like mine. ... Of course the business of saving par or bogey doesn't happen as much for me and I'm usually on tilt by the fifth hole.

That 13th hole was a bit nuts. You don't often get a chance to hit a second stroke after a big mishit, but excellent way to take advantage of it.

Why not hit 3w or hybrid off the tee? Seems like you'd score better

I usually hit my driver very well, but this night, it just wasn't working. As long as most of the holes are on my course, I need to squeeze every yard out of my tee shots I was mostly confused at how I was saving pars/bogeys when wasting a stroke.

2 days after this, I am hitting my driver well and making more bogeys. It's maddening.

    • FFS. You think scientists are all huddled in some town in North Dakota hiding evidence from the world. We have plenty of clues about the efficacy of the vaccines. And let’s face it, you wouldn’t believe this top secret study if it didn’t fit your narrative anyway.
    • Went with Tiger. In grand scheme of things would be the memorable. Now who are these 'Raiders' tho?? 😜
    • My 3 personal favorite arguments against being vaccinated are:   1 - (I saw this one just the other day) "I don't put anything in my body until I understand all of the long term effects." .... Takes a huge sip of Diet Coke.  2 - "I'm not getting vaccinated because I don't want to be told what to do." ... Okay, so you don't stop at red lights?  3 - "I think the government is using this whole thing as an excuse to plant a transmitter inside me. ... Oh shit, I gotta go charge my phone." 
    • Nice to hear some words from himself rather than someone else. He seems to have come out of a pretty bad accident relatively lucky, all things considered. When was the last time he played full time? 😛 The occasional major, his own tournaments and maybe some other special tournaments then, at best. With slim chances of the good old «double U».
    • Absolutely.   I agree that it doesn't follow modern styles as far as pacing, but I would argue that that is a good thing. People have become far to used to constant over-sensatory movies, where action is the only thing that matters. A good story is far more interesting to me. I am 70% through the first 6 Dune books according to my kindle (start of book 5), and I thought the movie should have been less fast. There are plenty of things that were added in (not in the book) that could have been replaced with even better story telling (things from the book). I am super excited that they green lit part 2, and hopefully we will get even more. Even more will probably just be Messiah, because after that things get unexplainable in movie form. My only complaint about the movie was the casting of Duncan (Mamoa), as he we just the "bro dude relatable comic relief". I thought taking away Gurney's good laughable moments and giving them to Idaho was a disservice to all Dune fans. I wasn't impressed with Mamoa, though he was just doing what was asked of him, but the switch of character roles was like nails on the chalkboard to me. I'd also give it an eagle, but it could have been an albatross by staying truer to the source material.
