Added a new one today, #7 at Green Knoll.   Hit 8i to 3’, made the putt. Simple game 😉

I played two away courses the past few days.

At Rock Barn (Jones course) I birdied: 2, 8, 14, and 18. At LPGA International (Hills course) I birdied only 3 and 10.

Fortunately (mostly because it's early in the year), all were unclaimed so I'm up to seven birdies. Actually I need to look at my Federal Club round…

Looks like I had birdies on… 7, 9, 10, 13, and 16 (most were par fives). So, all but 10 was new (or, they all were, but since I'm adding it later… they're not).

Forest Creek is in the list, but I deleted the round as it was just kind of goofing off. No birdies at Mid Pines a while ago, either.

Birdied the short par 5 #17 at Quail Brook. Smoked a drive over the trees on the right side and drew it back into the fairway. Caught the slope and ended up with a wedge in. Put it on to about 20' past the hole and missed the eagle putt. Tap-in birdie.

Home course #9 is a 385 yard par 4 with bunkers right and left. Hit driver on the back side of right bunker and it got hung up in the rough. I had 140 downhill, ball below feet with a tree blocking me slightly. PW with a cut that floated and hit soft 4 feet from pin. Downhill left edge for the 3. 
 

I only have 4, 11, 15, 16, and 18 left!

Played Whispering Woods today. Mostly a practice round, but if I played a few good shots and didn't move the ball or anything, and made birdie, I counted it.

So… birdied 5 and 12. Both are new as I only had 6 and 7 previously in one round on the course. So, 5-7 and 12 are done now.

Birdies at 7, 12, and one I needed at 15. 
 

At 7 hit 7 iron 162 to 5 feet. On 12, driver 5 iron to 15 feet and 2 putts. The new hole is 15 and is 350 and pinches at 240 so it was a week 5 wood into the right bunker and a 7 iron to 30 feet. I hit it uphill firm just outside right 6 inches and in the last 4 feet it broke and caught the low side.

Man, it has been a slow year for birdies considering how much I’ve been playing, but got another one this weekend.  Par 5, on in two, lipped out a 15 ft Eagle putt, got the Birdie.

Two birdies today, back to back, on #2 and #3 at Green Knoll.

Hit hybrid off the tee on #2 to the left edge of the fairway then 3/4 GW inside a foot.

Followed that shot by flushing a 7i on #3 3’ right of the hole.

Then I topped my driver on #4, but that’s OT 😜

Chirp, chirp, … it took several rounds and finally I started making a few birdies. One specific par 5 on the course is my go-to hole for hitting birdies regularly.

    • After a quick 21-putt 9 holes in the Chicago cold yesterday, I found myself again frustrated with my poor distance control while putting. I’ve put in indoor putting practice time on improving my setup and stroke and have seen a definite improvement in my putting start lines. However, with limited space I have not been able to dedicate much time to distance control and that has always been a weakness. With partial wedges, many (myself included) have a system based on clubs & backswing lengths. With full swings I know approximate carry yardage buckets for all my clubs. And I have a golf watch to tell me exactly how far I am from the center of the green. Putting - I have rarely ever seen someone pace off a putt to know the exact distance to the hole.  And the prevailing advice for putting (and short chips) is to rely on feel and practice to hone it in - curious whether: 1. Anyone uses or has tried a sort of system for this?  2. Why the prevailing wisdom here differs so much from other golf skills, where technique is a primary target for improvement rather than feel/skills. I was considering experimenting with a few different putting backswing checkpoints to have some benchmarks I can refer to. Obviously, you would need to adjust to green speeds and slopes day-to-day but if the tempo of your stroke remained relatively consistent I think it could work.

My ending speed in the last session that finished 2/18 was 105 with my driver. My e-speed today was 112. My last session in the previous program was 111. Good start, I imagine.
