Had three good chances at birdie today but only made one. #1 at Green Knoll. Went driver - 3w to the left side fringe. Left the eagle attempt 6' short but made the birdie putt. Missed 8 footers on #5 and #7 today.

Birdied 18 at Whispering Woods today after:

  • Didn't play the tenth (took a par for GHIN).
  • Missing a 15-footer on 11.
  • Missing a 20-footer on 12.
  • Missing a chip-in on 13 (tap-in par).
  • Missing a 25-footer on 14.
  • Missing a 10-footer on 15.
  • Missing a 10-footer on 16.
  • Missing a 20-footer on 17.

(To be fair [or make an excuse] I didn't warmup putt, and the greens were slow because of the heat, so I kept over-reading the break on the putts.) I hit almost every putt just about how I wanted.

The putt on 18 was about 20 feet. I drove it through the fairway and the ball was about 18" above my feet. I told my playing partner how weirdly good I am from those types of lies. It was also about 10 yards farther than I typically hit the club I used.

Hit it to 20 feet dead online, and he was putting about ten feet behind the hole (he'd already putted out, was just hitting another putt) so I asked him to stop because I wanted to get ONE birdie out of the round. So I'm glad I did.

Positive - I had 8 birdies in my club championship over the weekend (4 new ones this year).

Negative - I doubled hole 18 today when a par would have tied me for first and put me in a playoff for the title. Ugh...

Oh man.

But sounds like you played well overall?

I did. 10 GIR on both days. Were it not for a couple blowup holes (two triples in addition the aforementioned closing double), I would have won easily. I need to find a way to get rid of the big numbers….

Two more today, the 3rd and 4th holes. A par 4 and a par 3, I was 3 over on the front 9 and ended up 12 over. I didnt play particularly well but thats two more off the list.

Made a sweet birdie on 6 today. Went driver, 3-wood, to about 8 feet. Just missed the eagle putt. Easy stress-free tap in birdie. 

Oddly, it was one of only 2 holes that I scored well on all night. I say oddly, because I hit the ball very well today. Just nothing other than this birdie went right. Just one of those days I guess.

    • Day 115.  I only had time today for 20 balls in the same drill as yesterday, but I did find the time.
    • Day 163: Worked mostly on driver today with almost golf balls. Did some work on static change, then a bunch of rehearsals, and then some full swings. Made some improvement on the push start line, and ever so slight drop kick (graze the ground), at least for today. 
    • Maybe I've interpreted this incorrectly, but it just strikes me that the underlying reason is not really about fewer events.  And while the amount of money is obviously so enticing, but even that may not be the main reason for some. Patrick Reed, among others, are talking about how the PGA Tour is not listening to the players and making necessary changes.  I never quite understood exactly what type of major change could be made, other than increased prize money and a different distribution. But with the revelation that LIV golfers are paid a negotiated amount to just show up and play, it seems, at least to me, that the real reason could be wanting a negotiated contract that pays a certain amount regardless of tournament outcomes. It may be that desire to be paid like a baseball player, just as an example, who shows up each game, goes about his business, maybe batting .300, hitting 30 HRs while his team wallows outside of the playoffs and he collects millions.  Regardless of the stark differences in available money between the PGA and MLB, it sure seems like that is really the life these golfers want.  And it seems that is what LIV is offering, or maybe I should say over offering. While I may not agree with what LIV is doing, I do understand the appeal of a contract over time; especially as one is getting past their prime.  It can't be lost on these golfers what some professional athletes are getting paid, with a portion being guaranteed.  A PGA Tour pro who has career earnings of over $25M is probably doing pretty good; especially while maintaining a top 125 in the sport.  But in other sports...

    • Lol. Something to the effect of 'you miss 100% of shots you don't take'.   
    • Ugh, I wish we had better ways to deal with these sorts of idiotic law suits. Such of waste of time and money.
