Shot 49 yesterday. Not great but better than I have been doing for a while. Only took 1 drop. Where my league plays there is no range to warm up and I guess I was just not ready for that 1st tee shot and hit a line drive into the crap on the opening Par-3. At least I was able to take my drop, get on the green and 1 putt for bogey. Putting was a little off with 18 total putts. I checked and I lost 1.89 strokes putting vs Scratch due primarily to a 3-putt from 6' and a 3-putt from 12'. I also had a 3-putt from 30' but that does not bother me as much (but it does bother me). I was thrilled to have 3 1-putts from 1', 15' and 34'. I do not know how to calculate strokes gained off tee or on approach but I was happy with 1 GIR and 3nGIR. If anyone has a way, without Game Golf, to get those stats I would appreciate it. I'm know I am losing strokes on both, just not sure how many on which. I was in 2 greenside bunkers and one was an awful lie next to the edge. That was on a Par-5 and I was in the bunker on my 3rd shot but the lie was so bad I could not get under the ball and bladed it all the way to the rough on the far front side of the green (of course the Pin was in the back) requiring me to chip on for 5 (a bad chip at that) then I 2-putted from 27' for double bogey.
I feel your pain, we've all been there. How about a 3-putt for bogey? Yup, I did that yesterday.
I knew the Delta variant would be taking over most of the COVID cases when it was first identified. So I kept on wearing a mask even after I got vaccinated. Some people asked me why I was wearing a mask even after being fully vaccinated.
I told them that vaccine is not 100% guarantee and there were too many people that are not vaccinated and walking around without a mask.
Now, while the Lambda variant has not taken roots here yet, that is another variant that may cause another surge.
Par 73 rated 70.7/120, 6425 yards. Shot a 102. Back was a little tight which i believe caused me to turn the ball right to left more than normal which contributed to at least 2 of my 4 penalty strokes with driver. Also led to a bunch of missed greens on the left. When driver cooperated, i hit some good ones. Putting was ok as i drained a 25 footer...for an 8.🥴
Last night I had a 21 mile bike ride and, for the first time in a decade, I had a bike ride that wasn't basically flat and for which I didn't have to get off the bike to walk up a hill (I had to walk across one intersection because I haven't quite figured out how to stay on a bike at a red light and I didn't get on fast enough where I felt I would make it across). There are still some routes in my area that I'm building up to.
This morning, barbell exercises. I evidently reduced my bench press from my last post? Anyway, 3x8x115 lbs for squats (will increase to 125 lbs next time), 2x4x205 for deadlift (my goal is to build to an iteration of 1x6 before increasing weight), and 3x6x125 bench press (goal of 3x8x125 before increasing to 135).
This morning's weigh-in (pre-exercise, also pre-eating today) was 159.5 lbs, down from 170 lbs mid-June. Last two rounds of golf averaged 208 with driver despite some less-than-stellar pokes being averaged into there. Weight and golf scores down, driving distance up, I need to write that next to the squat rack for next time I ask myself if I really want to do that lift today.
