Fun round. Really struck the ball well. +5 was about the worst I could have done, given where I was hitting it. Had a lot of good looks at birdie that I didn't convert. Oh well.

I played a bit more aggressive than usual today as I wanted to see how I'd play some holes if I had to be more aggressive in the upcoming match play.  Some went well (13, 14) and some worse (12, 16).

From Saturday. Not too bad since there was 15-20mph winds the entire round and a pretty difficult course. Really struggled judging how much the wind would affect ball flight, multiple times I hit solid approach shots that were just the wrong club.

Need to eliminate the double chips too, my #1 focus needs to be getting the ball onto the green even if it's 20 feet past the hole.

Really happy with my approach shot on the 5th hole, had 205 yds into the wind from the rough. The ball had been jumping out of the rough all day (we started on hole 10) so I figured that would cancel out with the wind, and pured the 5 iron, straight as an arrow, probably one of the best long iron shots I've ever hit.

This was about as bad as I could have scored based on how solid my driving and irons were.

That was the single best driving round I've ever had, I gained 2 strokes against scratch on my driving, multiple drives over 300 yds, no penalties.  It was really warm and humid so the ball was flying, but I wasnt trying to swing extra hard or doing anything different than usual. Basically no roll too due to all the rain we've had recently.

Hit 11 GIR too which is well above average for me.

Putting was a different story. The greens were extremely slow, probably the slowest I've ever putted on, they were too soft to be mowed. I never got a good feel for the speed and either left putts 5+ feet short or ran them 5+ feet past.

I'm encouraged by the driving and approach play though, my "bad" rounds are getting lower so I'm definitely trending in the right direction. I will be submitting some short game shots to my Evolvr coach as well, I dont have a good feel for the 10-20 yd chip shots and still had a couple double chips.

85 (70/117). Drove the ball really well, and had an awesome day around the greens. Solid putting and iron play led to my best round of the year and one of my best ever!

I got 7 holes in before dark this evening. I was driving the ball good tonight. It was probably the best I've hit the ball off the tee in years, but the bogeys kept coming. The other night, I was basically duffing it off the tee and making pars. I just don't get it.

Check it out, best round of the season so far, ties my personal best at this course (two off my personal best anywhere).  Yesterday's 83 was a lower score, but a higher differential.

Wedges and putting were solid, I feel so much more confident with my wedges now that I built a chart for my partial swing yardages.

Short game needs more work, but I'm making progress. Narrower stance and standing closer to the ball has really helped with contact, just need to get proper power, especially out of the rough. 

Couple really fat iron shots, still just need to keep working on my main evolvr swing pieces, can't be too disappointed with 6/9 GIR though.

Conditions were a little humid, but otherwise perfect. First time on the course in three weeks and I played better than I could have expected.

New wedges are great. Need to get a little adjusted to them because they spin the ball more than my old ones. Even spun the ball back on a couple of full swing shots, which is not something I normally do. I'm used to my ball being next to my ball mark on the green with a full wedge shot, not 15' closer to me. Could add a whole other level of depth to my wedge game if I can learn to control the spin.

If I could only learn to hit the stupid driver, I'd be pretty good at this game.

I lost my mind for ten minutes today:  lost focus on #12 approach, hit into a bunker, poorly out, decent pitch back up, three putts.  Then a tee shot O.B. on the par-3 next (bad decision:  again, not thinking).  Only two other really bad full shots all day.  I suck at putting again.

Drove the ball like crap, kept hitting random fat shots and pulling my short irons. So that must mean I need to work on my short game and putting to save strokes 😜

I gotta try this looking at the ball thing @iacas mentioned.

Pretty solid round overall, tried a new putting grip from my Evolvr coach and putted pretty well, gained almost .75 strokes putting compared to a scratch golfer.

Short game was much much better, felt very confident on pretty much every short game shot and only had one double chip and that was when I was in a bunker and misjudged how firm/soft the sand would be.

Also had my new longest drive, 342 yards, leaving me with just a 9 iron left on a 515 yd par 5.

Last night's round. Never have I driven the ball so far/well and scored so poorly. Thank you rock hard fairways, but no thank you rock hard greens. 16 was an ugly, ugly hole.

Tonight's round. It poured right before golf league. It was a stifling evening with humidity. Wedge shots were falling out of the skies like wounded ducks.

I have to face my fourball partner tomorrow and admit to him that, after a poor showing on Sunday in our fourball final, I had one off my best score ever today in a casual round with some mutual friends. :-)

We played the forward tees (a little under 6000 yards) and I still had four sixes, but still shot an 82 (personal best is still 81).
