Played a nearby muni course today. Last time there - holes 15-17 were underwater (drainage issues) so we were not able to do a full round. Today the course was back to normal and funny thing, fairways were dry and the ball loved to roll out! The fronts of the greens were mush, plug the ball sticky. Made for approach shots at the front of the green tricky because too steep a landing and you were rolling no where. For a guy who just starting to consistently shoot in the 90's it made attacking the greens more challenging. Keep thinking about how in LSW, to aim for the big area of the green and not hunt flags. To be honest, I had a blast with the 50* wedge as I was putting the ball exactly where I saw it landing.
Overall - cannot complain shot a 96 (48/48), gold tees (translates to around 6100yds). Only one triple, NO SNOW MEN!, but way too many doubles to overcome. All in all drives were some of my best ever, with them either being on fairway or just off enough the S20 saw them as in the rough. That's okay. Not a bad day putting, still had some 3 putts but it was me not the putter or the greens which were reasonably fast. Would love to play this one again soon, its just over an hour away so not too bad a drive. Thinking about taking the missus there as she is saying she is ready to go play a round.
I feel like I am very close to a semi-repeatable swing, so I plan to continue my Evolvr work through the winter. We've made some great progress that is allowing me to hit the long clubs much, much better. I had been losing 6.5 shots a round to a scratch golfer in my ability to get off the tee and approach the green and haven't played much really since 2017. I don't have any disillusions about getting to scratch at this point in my life but a sub 5 golfer should be very attainable in the future.
I'd like to be kept in the loop on this. That's only 3 hours from my folks house. I haven't seen them since this who COVID thing began. If the COVID thing has left us by then I'd be interested in possibly doing a grandparents visit/golf trip.
Way too early for me to commit to anything though.
