Struck it pretty well today (a few squirrelly tee shots but nothing that put me into trouble) but could not putt.  Also misjudged a couple of wedges that probably cost me a couple of strokes.

9 holes at the course near my office. Hit it pretty good, but for one hole where I hit the green with my second shot, but it spun of down to the deep rough (this is the hardest green on course, with water in front and OOB at the back, with the green sloping severely back to front). Ended on hole 9 with a brilliant i9 to 1.5 meter (1.7 yards or so).

Did not quite play as well as Mike and had a couple really stupid shots (a shank, a "Tiger" chip, and two horrendous 4-irons on a couple of the par 3's), but overall I was not displeased.  I still tended to miss left today, as I have the last few rounds, but I'm encouraged because I basically had zero flares, push-cuts, or blocks.  Driving was, by-and-large, solid.

Yesterday's round. Played pretty well by my standards, considering the rust and all, but it's probably due to the length. I'll take it though. Still can't putt. Also seem to have an aversion to scoring because I had a couple of holes where I was set up to put up a good number and that's when I would mess up the worst. I'm probably seeing something that's not really there, though.

I'll be playing here a few more times during the week, so let's see if familiarity brings my score down any.

Played today in the afternoon. It rained all day and was somewhere between drizzling and showering while I was on the course. Didn't hit it as well as I did yesterday. I felt I got lucky on a couple of tee shots: they looked like they were going to be lost, but somehow were still in play. Two big holes did me in, though.

Short game wasn't as good as yesterday, but I was sinking putts today, so the score ended up about the same. Funny game.

I mentioned it in the comments of yesterday's round, but these greens are really tiny. I don't expect the GIR numbers to go up anytime soon.

I wanted to highlight #8 from both rounds:

Yesterday:

Today:

I hit identical mis-hits on the tee shot and approach on two separate days on the same hole, with different clubs for each shot. Funny game.

Played much better today. Guess I was wrong about my GIR % not going up. The secret is to hit the ball long enough (or play a short enough course) so that your approach shots are with your putter :-D .

Hit less errant tee shots, too, but also managed to get out of trouble better today. Even hit GIR on #4 with a half swing 9i I needed to keep under some branches. Still a couple of cross-ups I need to clean up, like 2nd shot on #7 that faded into the pond instead of drawing into the green. If I can manage to make my misses less dramatic, I could play more consistently good golf.

Highlight of the day was on #8:

Last round of the trip, so I played a "real" course. Conditions were pretty decent. It was a bit chilly in the morning, but that quickly went away. Wind picked up once I made the turn and was a factor on the back 9. Course was still pretty soft as I expected, but greens were firm. I hit a couple of fat shots here and there because my club dug right into the soil.

Played better than I thought I would, actually. Made a quick adjustment to tee the ball up 1/4" higher with my driver because I was hitting low bullet hooks. Helped for a while and then I started hitting pushes that didn't draw. Except on 17, since that's the one hole you definitely don't want to hit left, I hit a pull draw. Then I teed it up again and hit a straight push into a tree.

Funny thing, I thought I hit 5i on my approach on 18. Found out when I was editing my round that I hit 6i. Was wondering why I hit it short, even though I flushed it.

I was afraid that the greens were going to be faster here than on Oak Trail which I've been playing all week and I was right. Took a little bit to get adjusted.

Highlight of the round:

3w was probably not the best choice for a 2nd shot, but whatever, I got away with it :-P

Got my Game Golf on Thursday and managed to play two rounds since.  I rushed through the editing part too much and didn't realize until I looked later how much editing you have to do to make it accurate.  Both of these rounds are good examples of somehow scoring much better than I played.

Conditions were awful! It rained for two days straight before Christmas and the entire course was soaked. Half of my tee shots were plugged. Here I thought it was wet in FL; at least the soil is sandy there and drains well. It was all carry distance today.

Oh and there was a ton of goose feces everywhere, including on the greens. I'm not going to say it affected my putting, though.

Made one swing adjustment on the 5th hole and it was like someone turned the light switch on. I don't know how or why (I have video and can't see much difference) but for some reason I started hitting it better and less erratically. Shot +7 on the first four holes and +2 on the last five.

Finally hit this green, which I'm pretty proud of.

Played decent today, but it didn't really matter either way - I was golfing and not working. [URL=http://www.gamegolf.com/player/golfingdad/round/190822]http://www.gamegolf.com/player/golfingdad/round/190822[/URL]

Wind was crazy today. I had a short drive of 245, and a long drive of 364. Wind was around 20mph. It was definitely a good test of skill, when comes to playing the elements, keeping my trajectory low, and controlling my swing speed. Swinging hard in the wind is bad.

    • I spent quite some time auditioning hybrids until I settled on a 5 and 3 wood.  Once I'd done that it became a matter of choosing a hybrid that suited, or fit, the space between my irons and fairways.  It isn't, to my thinking, what hybrid is best...it's which hybrid is most like the clubs on either side.  I want the weight, and flex, to be similar to my 4 iron and 5 wood.  In other words:  I'd rather fit one club to the set than craft a set around one club.
    • Day 133.  Had a little bit of time, wish I had more.  Did the 6' putting drill I've been doing;  this time, I hit 7/12 on the first go-around!  And then 3 of 5 the second one.  It was fantastic.   I then set up 8 roughly equidistant stations from 9' out.  First go-around, sank none.  Second go-around, sank 4.  Hey, 4/8 from that distance is great, and for that matter, 4/16 isn't bad from that distance for me.  Took me a bit more time to sink the rest.   You might wonder why I'm doing so much putting lately.  It was an emergency and I only have n=1 rounds where it has looked good since declaring the emergency.  Also, I had to pack up my home golf room so I can't practice full swing in limited time as I used to (yes, there are drills I could do that don't involve hitting a ball).  Not worry, plenty of full swing work before too long.  
    • During the club fiasco of 2019, after FedEx lost my golf clubs and I was waiting for Cobra to build me a new set of F9 One Lengths (5i - SW), I made a mistake. I bought into hype. I went down and tried out a new set of hybrids. Callaway Epic Flash. The reviews were that they were long and forgiving. Well, true and sort of true. I had a little problem with "over fading them", but with a draw setting to make them a little more upright, that seemed to fix that and I was hitting them long and straight in the shop. Unfortunately this did not last. I do not like them. I have zero confidence with the 5H. The "over-fade" with the 4H and 3H is back. I did not have this issue with my Bio Cell hybrids. The Bio Cells were not as long, but I could hit them straight in a neutral face setting. They were also heavier in the club head. D6 vs D0. I think the weight was further back in them too for more forgiveness. What makes this a mistake is that I used them as part of the funding for the Epic Flash Hybrids. I have a 60 day playability guarantee on the Callaways. Basically if I don't like them I can return them. I'm going to return them, but I'll need a set of hybrids. I'll bring my 6i with me. So do you guys have any suggestions for any that are easy to get in the air and tend to keep a relatively narrow dispersal pattern?
    • Day 27 Worked with my weighted club, but this time, I placed a football between my arms and held it in place as I focused on my takeaway.  Really trying to keep my width, and prevent my arms from folding as I have had a tendency to allow in the past.
    • I got up for the 3am start on Friday. Had the dvr record todays start. Probably should have done this in reverse order. Still very enjoyable. Love the format and the US vs Europe. I still have some hope for Decembers Pres. Cup. Maybe that team can be somewhat competitive.   Solheim and Ryder Cup still a must watch for me.
