Practiced on the front nine today (tried to birdie #8 but just made a par, was still somewhat practicing), and then played a bit more on the back nine.

  • Missed a 25-footer on 10.
  • Forgot I needed 11 still but almost made a birdie there.
  • Narrowly missed a birdie on 14 after a 54° approach.
  • Reached 15 in two with a driver and a hybrid to the back fringe. Missed the eagle putt, tapped in for birdie.
  • Missed a 20-footer on 16.
  • Forgot I needed 17 and didn't putt. Just hit some chips to practice.
  • Hit a decent drive on 18, a decent 8I to 18 feet, and drained it to knock that hole off the list too.

Not a bad day.

Birdied #13 at Quail Brook, which is new. Blocked tee shot right which ended up being fine because I didn't hit it well enough to reach the fescue. Had 110 to the flag and was ready to hit a 3/4 GW to it (even tagged the club) but felt the wind pick up behind me so I decided to club down to the SW and hit it to 4'.

Lipped out a 15-footer on #17 for birdie for a tap-in par that also would have been new.

Played my first round at my Home Course last weekend.  No birdies, but got 6 pars on the card, including three in a row from 15-17.  For me, a realistic goal is to Par every hole this year, so this was a good start, including the #2 and #3 handicap holes.

I need… 1, 8, 10, 11, 14, 16, and 17.

Today I:

  • Hit it in a bunker on 1 and didn't hole out (par).
  • Hit it just short of the green on 8 and didn't hole out (par).
  • Hit a 9I to 10 and just missed the birdie putt.
  • Missed the green on 11 and didn't chip in (bogey).
  • Hit 14 to 20 feet and didn't make the birdie.
  • Hit 16 to 15 feet and didn't make the birdie.
  • Didn't chip in on 17 after an indecisive second shot (par).

So… a lot of near misses. Giving myself plenty of chances lately. I'll get 'em.

Got a birdie on 11 yesterday. Had opportunities to fill a few more out (1 and 16 especially), but couldn't cash the 10 footers. 

6 holes left - 1, 4, 5, 13, 16, and 17.

Birdied #14 at Green Knoll but already had it on my composite list. Missed a 6-footer on #10 that would have been new.

I’m definitely making birdie at a higher rate this year than any other but it still feels like the composite list will be hard to complete. Still lots of golf ahead, though.

    • I'm an all weather golfer. Luckily in my part of the Bay Area, it never get's much hotter than mid-70s, and the only humidity fog, so I don't have to deal with hot and humid weather. Most of the year I only have time to play once a week, and it's my weekly psychological break from the daily experience of work/parenthood so I hate to miss it. The only thing that really gives me pause is high winds, because my home course has tons of trees, and quite a few are diseased/dying. Often times when I am out playing and the weather is really shitty I will momentarily question my decision to play, but I rarely regret it.
    • I can't really vote. I'll play in 50° if it's even a little sunny and not pouring. I'll play in 90°. I generally won't play when it's pouring, ridiculously windy, or > 100° or below about 40°.

    • I've had a Mizuno stand bag as my back up bag for a few years. Use it every now and then. It's fine.
    • Dry weather golfer, I guess. I can do rain or cold independently but combo of rain and below 40 deg. weather same time will keep me out.
