I got 2 birdies today. I got number 10, which might be the most difficult on the course. I also got number 13... which I already had.

One more "new" birdie in the men's club on Wednesday, had a decent round with back-to-back birdies on 7/8 for the front nine and then birdies 6 with a terrible 3-foot lip out on 7 that would've been a

Today was a big birdie day with 3 (5, 13, 17) in the first round shooting 78 and then in the PM, I birdied another 3 (6, 10, 11) in a skins game. I finally got the last par with the illusive #2. To su

I had a really good day yesterday, including 4 birdies, 3 of those holes were "first timers" this year.  This brings me to 7 holes birdied this year so far.

Well only one on Saturday and its a dupe. Got 5 left. Anyone else think about this when you are playing? I only think about it when I am putting for birdie on a rascally hole.

I'm with you. I pretty much don't think about it while hitting my full shots. But I always seem think about it when I'm lining up a birdie putt. I'm like "Ooo, this would be a nice one to cross off." or sometimes I just remember that I've already got this one. 

The last two times I've played I've had reasonably good chances at birdie on number 7. Which at my course is a 170 +/- 10 or so par 3 over water. It's a tough hole because it's back in the corner or the golf property and kind of secluded from the wind. That is until your ball gets up in the air. Anyway, I've never birdied it. I've had two shots at it lately with putts of around 7-8 feet.

Haven't decided if I'm going to let it count yet, but I got birdies on 1, 7 (definitely not counting this one as it was on a provisional green and played a lot shorter than normal) and 13 on my homecourse on Saturday. It was from the the red tees. I'll let it count, but with red number for now. Will hopefully be replaced with black/yellow numbers later this summer. 

Missed a 12 feet eagle-putt on 1 (460 yard par 5) and sunk a 2 feet tap-in birdie on 13 (350 yard par 4)

Picked up # 4 yesterday, still missing #9 and #12 the two longest par 3s on the course. Won't get a chance to try again for a few weeks as they are top dressing this week and my group is headed elsewhere until the greens are playable again.

Playing on Saturday I picked up a birdie on hole #4, which is nice since that's definitely the hardest par 4 and I've got it finished for both the front and back 9 now. The other two birdies in my even par 34 were duplicates, but I only have holes 1 and 9 remaining for the front by now.

The back nine was decidedly less nice, since I followed up my up and down front nine 34 with a horrifying 42 that contained a double, a triple, and three bogies with zero birdies to offset any of it. I was playing Wolf with those in my group and took a lot of risks off the tee on the back 9 because my partners were already in safe position, and precisely zero of those risks paid off. In the future I'll likely just use standard stroke play strategy around the course even if a higher-risk option could be better for a cash side game, because otherwise that little course will eat you alive off the tee if you play aggressively and miss.

I made a sweet 12 foot putt on number 2 for birdie. Then I birdied number 18 from the championship tees.  

I had a great chance on 17. I had a 5 footer up hill. Burned the right edge.

Picked up a birdie on #9.    Par 5 and one of the better birdie chances on the course.   But, nice to get the ball rolling in the first rd of the season. 
 

#11 still eludes me from last year.  Picked up a triple-bogie there today.  So no where to go but up here.

Birdied 7 and 12, and 7 is new. Completely lucky to chip in on both of them. Thinned the shot on 7, hit the flagstick, and it dropped in. 🙂 Just lucky to have it roll in on 12.

Finally got my birdie.  Eighth hole at Sugar Hill Golf Club.  Par 3 - 110 yards, slightly uphill.  Pulled my wedge slightly left of the pin, and had about a twelve foot putt.  This was probably the only good putt I hit all day.  It broke ever so slightly to the right and dove right into the cup.

Made a birdie hole 10 today. A 535 yard par 5 with a strong dogleg left after 350 yard that played directly into 15 mph wind today. I hit a bad slice of a drive around 230 yards to the rough on the left side, and the safe route to the dogleg corner was blocked by a tree so had to look for other options. If I hit it back into the fairway, I would need 4 to reach the green, so I went with the risky option: to hit it over the dogleg, a 200 yard carry over OB into the wind from the rough. I hit my 4 iron and cleared the OB by a couple of yards, and was left with around 60 yards to the green, pitched a smooth wedge to 8 feet and sunk the heavily sloped putt.

I hit the ball well today. I had to start on 10 (big league on the front... we’re talking like 80 players maybe more...) I shot +1 37 on the back... got lucky on 16 again my second shot decided to stay on the bank... no birdie though. I hit 15 greens and made exactly squat until my last two holes of the day... I missed 10, 17, and 7 and hit all the rest...

On 8 I knock PW to 8 feet and made the putt like I knew what I was doing, I hit a good drive at the 9th okay pitch and made a 20 footer for back to back birdies to close and a 1-under 70. My handicap is actually currently at 1.5 I just haven’t updated it.

Snagged another birdie yesterday, made a long putt on our Par 3, 4th hole.  I'm still searching for my first birdies of the year on our back 9 Par 5's, had a great chance yesterday and just missed one on 14 and 15.  Just not putting well at this time.

    • Day 512: Did the same takeaway/ backswing priority piece work, recentering / flow work, and some Justin Rose drills. Then hit foam balls with driver to work on concepts with a longer club.
    • Adding tackling to golf could make things interesting...
    • Rugby League (not Rugby, that means Rugby Union) isn't really like American Football, but it is a faster and tougher game and some of the players only wear very light padding. Most wear none. Do not mistake "Rugby" for Rugby League. My point is that if you think he's talking about tackling and you look up Rugby you'll see Rugby Union, which is a running and passing game. They don't tackle like in League. I'm not making a comment about American Football. I love it.   
    • No - but if you said that the article said that the vaccine rather than the virus caused these issues it would be shared around the vaccine skeptics within seconds. None of them would read it and it would definitely qualify as "research".
    • Day 79.  Got video today, I have to process to upload to evolvr.  I did a wall drill on video and also did an attempt at a slow swing with a 6-iron on video;  did some practice with each prior to filming.
