Best round ever, most birdies ever, and one drive hooked into a hazard away from breaking par. (Oh, and perhaps not coincidentally, it was on my birthday)

Don't feel bad it happens to the best of us. Golf does become boring once you have mastered it and there is no room for improvement. I'm going to return to the Adult film industry.

Nobody died.

Hit 4 out of 9 greens on the par four course this morning , just off the edge on 4 others but couldn't score any better than the 33 I got because the greens were wet and like shag carpets.

I had some good shots, some not so good shots, which made it an interesting round. (44/44)

I had a very encouraging 9 holes. (quick 9 before dinner with parents)  My first play since deciding to get back into golf seriously after only playing 2-3 times a year for the last 10 years and first play since starting lessons up again. I had 2 lessons this past month.  41 on a par 34 with only one double bogey.

"From the sublime to the ridiculous!"

Shot 101, with 5 pars & 2 birdies.

Was striking it very well, putting beautifully and generally playing very well. But I really need to learn to take my medicine! Short par 4, only 340 yards but built over a a natural valley, so tight tee short through trees from elevated tee, to a very sloping fairway. Then a blind 2nd over a rise to a tight green with OB left, death right and long.

GREAT hole! Previous few rounds I've gone Par, Birdie, Par on it, so normally play it well enough.

Nope, not this time. Shanked drive into the trees off the tee. Reload, changed to my trusty 2i, massive high slice the other way. Found it on edge of the course, in the deep stuff. This is where I should have taken my medicine, drop out as unplayable and accept the crap score. Nope, I was determined to get it out, had 3 swings at it, steadily driving it deeper into the crap before finally giving up and dropping it as unplayable.

Simple 7i up over the rise to the green now. Nope, wild slice OB! Reload, duffed 20 yards. Then finally decent 9i just short followed by a thinned 60 (which I NEVER do!) over the back, just avoiding the death. Fluffed chip trying to be too cute.

If it wasn't for the deft little 60 and solid 5ft 1 putt, I could have signed for worse than the 14 I signed for! :( EDIT: Which counting back I'm not even sure is correct?

Head was completely off by now obviously so ripped my next drive all of 7 yards, then bludgeoned it along the next for a 9.

So 2 holes of rubbish and I went from 8 over thru 12 to 23 over thru 14. If it wasn't so laughably funny I might have cried.

I appreciate that's not 1 sentence but the story needed to be told!

    • It is insane this is still being talked about. I read that people are saying he was the winner. Crazy!
    • Day 109.  Round of 16 of my club's match play.  I lost 3&2 but made a new friend.  There's this issue that happens to me at this course we played (not our home course due to availability of tee times).  It's come up a few times, but ... my second shot on the first three holes, plus my tee shot on the par-3 4th, were horrible.  Seems to happen to me I hit a few bad early shots, despite getting to the course, stretching, and warming up.  Despite this, still had sub-10 handicap baseline strokes gained: approach.  And for the first time, sub-10 handicap baseline SG:driving.  I also did some "miss the green" short game shots from what should be easy positions today... did that four times, totally inexcusable. I sank some long putts even but missed some short ones.  Putting was sub-20 handicap level today, which was cool.  Gotta pull it all together at some point again. 
    • Day 3 June 12 - Went to the driving range to get used to a new wedge. I had a wedge fitting yesterday and needed to find out if I could hit touch shots with it in addition to the full shots. 25 shots with it. Done. Then went on to work on getting through the shot with my irons. I need to get my weight forward and stay on plane through the shot better. Why is it so easy to stay on plane with my 5W? I can return that on the original shaft plane and smoke shot after shot. But why is it so much more difficult with my irons? I need to take a video and look at this. I need to look at what I'm doing with my 5W and move that over to my irons.
    • I’ll keep it simple and short... my draw bias ZX hybrids I can’t hit, they just go left.  I’m thinking about buying the ZX5 4-iron and trying to figure out 14th club.... At Genny I rarely have to hit either hybrid.... but longer courses I’d be between 3-wood and 5-iron. (The 4-iron is a 6-8 week wait).    I usually don’t mind a hybrid (don’t mind hitting the ball high)... I’m looking basically at a few options... It’s not exactly easy to bend the lie of a hybrid but thought about flatten the lie to reduce the hook a bit. Get a Pro model hybrid. Or get a 5 or 7 wood...  Thoughts?    Yes I’m down to a 1.5 handicap, and shouldn’t really need equipment help... but I’m an adult and don’t know everything.
    • Similar to last  year I am looking to break 90 and then eventually 85 this year. My previous round was a 92 and I am improving.
