Picked up a birdie on 1.    Had a 60-yd pitch that rolled up and hit the flag stick and left me with a kick in birdie.   (i still contend that it was going a good speed adn the Eagle was denied by COVID stick.)

Been busy so late post but on Tuesday I checked off #2 on my Par Challenge.  Also got #6 & #8 but already had those.  Was thrilled with the up & down to save par on #6 after bad 2nd shot left me behind a tall tree 40 yards from the green.  I opened my 60* wedges and got it up over the tree and onto the green then sunk a 25' put for par.  I'm running out of weeks to finish this challenge.  Need to shoot well the next two league nights.

Hole #14 birdied it yesterday.  Par 4 386 yards from the White tees.  Hammered my Driver straight out and caught the upward hill leaving 90 yards to the middle.  Elevated green and all you can see is the top part of the flag.  Hit my 52* Wedge dead on the pin leaving a tap in for the Birdie.  I was a 1/4" off on my putt on Hole 15 just missing back to back Birdies.  Add in Hole #4 I would have Birdied but i had a water ball penalty so i salvaged a very nice par.

Great to check off Hole 14 as it is a tough Par 4

Updated my "away courses" as the result of play during my recent vacation.  A par on Thursday made it so I don't have any bogeys remaining on my ringer card (still have I think five on my "home course" card, but that's another story) and I also added a birdie!

Played my Home Town course today and collected 2 Birdies.  I birdied the first hole and tapped in a 2" putt on the 9th hole for my 2nd birdie of the day.

Had a rough round at league this week, did not check off any that I needed but did par both Par-3s which helped a little.  Only 2 weeks of league left so only 1 more chance on the back nine next week and the front nine in two weeks.  I'll need some really good rounds to hit the challenge.  I hope I do not need to play an extra 18 holes on the weekend to finish the challenge.  It's not that I do not like the course, but have played it weekly all year and prefer some different scenery on the wekends.

I got two new birdies today, on the fourth and fifth holes. The fourth was after I hit a knockdown 8I within a foot, the fifth after I hit a 7I to six feet. That makes 11/18. I’ve yet to birdie holes 2, 7, 11, 13, 14, 15 and 18. I think I can get 2, 7 and 11 before the year’s up. The other four will be tough.

Away course - made a very nice Birdie on Hole 4 at The Wilds in Prior Lake. Just missed a second birdie on hole 6.  Missed a 3' putt for birdie there.

Made three birdies the last two rounds at away courses. #13 today is a duplicate, but #16 is new for the away composite as well as #18 last week.

Been stuck on two to go for a while, ticked one off the other day, just the opening hole to go.

Haven’t even come close to birdieing it for ages. Green is twenty metres or so above an undulating fairway , falls away back & sides and is always hard. Even though we’ve just left winter Ive never known it to be soft, just drains away, and difficult to stop on.

I picked up two birdies (12 and 13) on my away-course composite during my golf trip this weekend.

I'm up to 11 birdies in 14 total rounds, which is much better than I thought I'd do when I started the challenge.

Well, this week was last night of regular league (3-Club Tournament next week) and I golfed like crap.  Over 20 weeks of 9-hole rounds I parred 11 of 18 holes.  I doubt I will play there again this fall so I guess this is a challenge failed....until next year.

Birdied the par 3 15th today, new one for the away composite. Hit a good tee shot to 10', made the left to right breaking putt. As pedestrian as birdies get 😜

If I add my away composite to my home course, I'm still 6 holes away from filling out the sheet.

Just double checked and I have completed "par" on 16 of 18 holes at my home course this year.  Only 10, 11 remain for "par".  As I am working to achieve par all the way around, this is a great accomplishment.  BTW - #11, is the most difficult hole on the course but still a doable par.  Love looking back and seeing how I've progressed over the year. Still 3 mo's to get those two par. Hoping 2021 I can focus getting birdies on all 18.

I still have f***ing hole 1 and 2 left.

I lipped out the last two times I played #1. I was about six inches short on two the last two times I played it. I think I've lipped out on 2 12 times this year.

I should probably hit a few more putts before I play. I'm running out of time.

Birdied the 6th hole today, that's new. Smoked my 2h off the tee and had about 90 yards left to the flag. Pulled the approach a little but the pin was back left so I ended up 12' from the hole. Putt was left to right and slightly downhill and I hit it dead center.

    • Personally I'm leaning towards these options, but am open to what everyone else wants.  We probably want to try this during the week if were booking SV tee times 30 days out. I am thinking we start golfing maybe on Monday the 19th or Tuesday the 20th.  Again, I am very open to discussion on all of this. 1. Mammoth or SV and the Sand Box $290 2. Mammoth or SV and the Sand Box $290 3. Mammoth or SV and the Sand Box $290  4. Sentry World ($155) or Mammoth or SV and the Sand Box ($290) 5. Lawsonia ($120) or Erin Hills($320) - If you would be doing this on the way out it would be recommended to maybe fly out of Milwaukee and you may want to get a hotel nearby for a next morning flight.  So, costs: The 4 days of golf with Sentry world would be roughly $1025 for the golf. All 4 days all at SV would be $1160 5 days with Lawsonia $1145. 5 days with Erin hills or Whistling to something else you would want to do...have fun and good on you for having limitless income. A word of advice for Whistling and Erin, Whistling requires a caddy i believe, so your probably looking at ($750) and Erin has so many blind shots that you likely need one.   If someone wants to just golf the first three days, that is an option too.  @Slim_Pivot I apologize I was a bit low maybe on my initial calculations.  I was originally thinking of 3-4 days instead of 4-5 days. I am all for as much golf as possible though.      
    • Sorry for the silly-long delay in replying! The course closed in October 2016. I've never been back to the park. Our club (Braeside GC) survived after moving to Selsdon Golf Course and we're doing pretty well, except for the women's section which has dwindled badly. The other club (Beckenham GC) disappeared after moving/merging to somewhere else that wouldn't allow to retain their identity (I think they only had around 10 active members).
    • If you stay with Footjoy stay with the medium. It will likely be a bit long, but the elastic is so bad better to go with the proper sizing.
