Played a quick (1:30) nine yesterday in a steady, chilly rain. Only one on the course. It had just started to rain after a couple dry weeks, so the fairways and greens were still firm. Shot a sloppy 40 (par 35) with one bird. Only 13 putts, or score would have been worse. Hit the ball great off the tee, but couldn't dial in distances with irons. I blame the rain. Nuked approach shots over three greens, left two short.

But happy with my ball-striking, and the chance to play on a Friday in April (though it's snowing here now...).

Ho-hum even 35 with 2 birdies and a double bogey. Missed two birdies within 5 feet though. The first I thought I hit the right putt so I wasn't too concerned with the miss, although it would have been nice to make it of course. The second one I missed, I just kinda got up there and hit at it... Had two really good up and downs from bunkers though. And was hitting the ball the way I wanted as well. So, it was pretty satisfactory for me.

122

Nightmare day. Started well with a good drive off the 1st tee. After that i should have gone home.

Lots more practice needed, especially as my aim for this year is to break the 100. Not so long ago i hit a 110 on the same course, so i know i can do it with a bit more practice.

This is unbelievable. There were 6 inches of snow here this weekend. It was so crazy they actually sent the Weather Channel here. Obviously I didn't get to play. Wednesday it was 84 degrees, yesterday the high was 34. Oh well, it's supposed to get back into the high 50's by this weekend. It better. My league starts Wednesday night.

Check this place out!!!

It's located in a lush part of the Orange County called Newport Beach. Think the TV show The OC, and this would be where the characters would play. I even think they've shot a few of the panaramic views for the show at this place. $175/person, and worth every penny. Of course, a member at my course paid for me though... Some of the estates in the hills of this course were out of control. Not to mention the views of the Pacific Ocean on every whole. Absolutely GORGEOUS!

I played the North Course and shot a 2 over 73. Not bad for my first time there. Hit some nice irons, didn't get myself in any huge trouble off the tee, just the putts. Them damn greens had me fooled. Had two foolish 3-putts early in the round. Greens were really tricky to read. I missed about 4 putts that I should have made. And I mean missed them entirely, just total misreads.

I'm not a "cali" person at all. But if I lived in Newport beach I'd be in heaven! You gottal love costa mesa and Balboa Island. Killer. Ever eaten at "original pizza" down there? Awesome. We should hook up sometime when I'm in the area!

Danielle of BBIII is from Newport Beach. I'll try to stay far, far, far away.

I shot 42 today in some of the most horrific winds you'll ever see, and with no warmup. Double bogey, bogey, double bogey, bogey - then I hit ever fairway, every GIR, and two-putted everything to finish with five pars in a row.

Media Guru, you shot a pretty good round in my book but I'm reletively new to playing regular golf. Just wanted to report that my scores are falling like crazy. I managed a 43 on the back nine of my course a couple of weeks ago with my second birdie on a short par 4 (which I may have reported already). I finished that up on the front nine with a 45 (and struck the ball horribly particularly on the last three holes) and yes, I took a couple mulligans but man am I one happy golfer. Things are really coming together for me. I'm starting to have some good expectations when I get out on the course.

Mulligans? Hmmm... If you use a mulligan it is not a real score. If you are simply practicing during a round and hitting a few shots from different places for practice that's another thing.

As much as you aren't a Cali person, I'm not an OC person. I don't venture sown there all that often. But yeah, If you're even in L.A. shoot me an email and I'll have you come play out at my place...

OK, OK... You caught me. I just got a little ahead of myself there. I'll not post anymore fantasy scores here. But man is my happy place nice.

I realize the rules of golf say this is bad, but sometimes I'll hit a second shot from where I hit one. I

always play the first shot - never the second, which is almost always better, of course - and sometimes I still post the round as a handicap round. But always playing the first ball. It's tough to say "Uhhh, that one might be unplayable or lost, I'm hitting a provisional."

How do you shoot 38 with no birdies and one GIR? 12 putts, that's how.

First hole, failed to get up and down, bogey 6.
Second hole, sand save, par 4.
Third hole, up and down, par 4.
Fourth hole, failed sand save, bogey 4.
Fifth hole, up and down, par 4.
Sixth hole, sand save, par 5.
Seventh hole, up and down, par 3.
Eighth hole, GIR!!! Two putts, par 4.
Ninth hole, up and down, par 4.

Granted, I was only missing greens by a few yards, and usually short and thus in the fairway type area, and I putted a few of those "up and downs," but I also sank a few 10+ footers, too. Like the one on six.

Fairways? 5 out of 7. Missed the second just right and the sixth way left. Then hit a gorgeous cut 3W to get nicely back into play.

Ditto if you're ever up here in Utah.

    • Hit the 9 wood on a 186 yard par three, hang time was incredibly long. It finally landed and only bounced about 6' forward. I was 20' to the right of the pin. Lipped out the bird, easy par. I think I like this.
    • Shot 86 on a 6000 yard par 72 yesterday. After a mixed start, I'm very happy with the last 10 holes. 3 O.B. tee-shots and a tee-shot that found a bush 3 yards right of the fairway is responsible for +8 of the score and a couple of bad approach shots on the front +3-4 more. Hit 2 of the first 6 and 6 of the last 10 greens and made no 3-putts on very slow and bumpy greens (33 putts total). Hit my short irons really well from the short stuff (hit all the greens from 150 and in from fairway/semi), but struggled a bit from thick rough and with my longer irons.  Finished the round with a nice birdie on 18, a 310 yard dogleg right par 4 playing a little uphill into the wind. Hit my drive well and it ran through the fairway a couple of yards into the left rough, and left me with 50 yards to the pin. Piched a smooth AW to 7 feet an sunk the putt.  Shot of the day came on hole 11, a short, downhill (10 yards), 275 yards par 4 with a false front (uphill the last 30 yards). Hit a perfect 4 wood directly at the flag and it landed 2 yards short of the green (268y), jumped a yard back because of very soft conditions and left me with 8 yards left to the pin. Made the up and down for a nice birdie there as well.     
    • Well how well did he hit the 2-iron?
    • I had my first shot of the AZ a few weeks ago. I felt a fever coming on about 12 hours later, and spent about a day and half feeling like the poo.  After that it was pretty smooth sailing.     Of course, now Canada is looking to be in short supply of follow up shots with that vaccine, and the Pfizer became readily available about a week later.  That's my luck, but I'm glad that i at least have one shot so far.  
    • Day 80.  Today is a bit of a cop-out, and I debated not posting it and taking the miss.  I gave blood this afternoon and hadn't practiced by that point, so I just did more wall drill rather than swinging a club after giving blood.  I'm not sure swinging a club would have been a bad idea, but I figured I need to ingrain this turn more anyway, so...
