41 for 9 this morning before work. Struggled off the tee for the first four holes, but scrambled to salvage +3. Then the last five holes, I struck tee shots well and shot +2 for a total of 41.

Overall it seems my scrambling ability has improved tremendously. I think that is because I had a lot of practice (not at the driving range, but while playing )

Played 36 holes today for the first time this summer including the fastest round of my life (2.25 hours). Shot 81 the first round and 86 the second, I had to walk the second round and just kinda got tired and shot 45 on the last 9. Good day of golf though :)

9 holes at Fred Enke Sunday morning, shot 4 over with one double and only 11 putts (so my approach shots sucked). Played 9 holes at Pusch Ridge yesterday morning, tricky little course, shot 4 over again, missed a few legit birdie chances with the flatstick. Played 9 this evening in an executive business league, and was far from sharp. Large sharp draws on nearly every mid to short iron, from right edge of the green into the leftside bunker. 6 over for 9 (2 more than my last 9's there combined). Was still fun to be out on the course. I pulled the 1 iron out on #9 (250 yd par 4) just for fun and hit my best shot of the day, a screaming, rising line drive than ended up 15 yds past the green. Easily the longest, straitest "long iron" i've ever hit.

Following a fire that destroyed our house last fall and the birth of our first child in January, I haven't had much time for golf lately. In fact, I hadn't played since last Father's day. So my brother and I decided to get up early and play a few weeks ago. We booked a tee time at 6:34 at a course we had both played once or twice in high school.

On the first hole, my approach shot was a little short ... probably because the head of my 5-iron flew off and landed about 40 yards down the fairway. My dad cleaned up my clubs following the fire, but apparently the heat weakened the epoxy. I had no problems with the rest of my clubs, but it wasn't a good way to start the day.

I ended up shooting 96 (not far from my average), but even more disappointing was the fact that my brother shot 86. He continues to hold it over my head to this day. Considering I hadn't played in a year, I was pretty happy with my ballstriking. My short game, however, was atrocious. I probably three-putted at least 8 or 9 holes.

We're planning a rematch this weekend, so I'm going to head to the driving range Friday night and spend most of my time at the putting green.

have had to work more than usual this work so ive only played two 9 hole rounds during twilight this week...:(

tuesday shot a 39 (3+) not bad considering I was 4 over after 5 holes

Wednesday shot a 35 (-1) ... played some of my best golf of the season and swing muscles are gaining some sort of memory... im consistently driving the ball to and around 300... I know this because Ive been just short or on greens on a few holes measuring 320-330...Drove a green twice sat and sun at 312. Need to practice getting my approach shots within birdie range instead of 2 putt range

Played a great round today, sticking everything within 10 feet from 100 yards and in, and even a few from 150 and out. Overall, shot 45 on the front and 42 on the back which would give me two qualification rounds for my high school team had it been a match (season doesn't start for 1 1/2 monthhs )
Overall:87

79 (+7). 42/37. 37 (+1) is my best score on 9 ever. I'm pretty excited about that. Back to the round, 7 fairways, 12 GIR (8 on the back), 36 putts, 2 birds, 2 doubles, three 3-putts, and three 1-putts. I left a few shots out there around the greens on some chips, but I'm happy with the way I hit the ball. Handicap's on its way down!

I went out today on the course that whooped me last weekend and shot 50 over 9 holes. Not, perhaps, what I was hoping for (set my sights on breaking 50 today) but I was much happier with my course management and club to distance matching today. I have struggled as I have been taking lessons and have gained serious distance on most of my clubs. Adapting to that has really been a task. It seems to be coming together, though.

With any luck, I will be able to come here later this weekend and post a sub 100 round to add to this close one.

Not a great day, but a beautiful course and wonderous weather conditions....Started out awful, shooting 49 on the Front at Orchard Creek in Altamont, NY. Turned it around making a few pars and a birdie to come back and shoot 44 on the back to shoot 93.....this is a course i should break 90, but just not today!!!!!!!

Not a good day at all, but only 2 off from my first time golfing (again) last month. I'd say I broke 90, but it's just a par 3 course, so... 86, 2 off my best (of 2 rounds) at the course of 84. AND I knocked in two pars.

Greatest weather day since......who knows? 37/45=82.....why? Two hooked tee shots OB and one in a lake, that's why. Front nine was EASY. I make the game so hard

    • My home course closes its range for maintenance Monday mornings or Tuesday if a holiday falls on the Monday. The sign indicates they re-open by 1 p.m.  That makes sense for them. It's always a busy course, but evening leagues are really big business.  Closing at 3 p.m. seems a bit odd to me, but if that suits the course's clientele, that's what they'll do. I hate mats.  We usually get stuck with the damn things after October. It is a much better thing that the course close the range for a brief period of time once a week and keep the turf up to snuff.    
    • Replace the grip if you want, but a new putter won't matter (unless it makes you practice more).  There's some great putting and short game drills in chapter 9 of Every Shot Counts by Mark Broadie. His drills are also games, with scoring that measures objective skill level.   Also recommend The Putting Bible by Dave Pelz. 
    • A strange round of golf yesterday. I played from the red tees (plays just 5350 yards).  My ballstriking is not very crisp these days, but hopefully I can sort that out soon. It was a round of two halves, as usual. Front 9:  Could not hit fairways or greens at all on the front, 2/9 greens and 2/6 fairways, but still shot +2 on the front. That includes 2 shots in the bunker on hole 4, a horrible misshit that lead to a double on hole 7, topped my driver 80 yards twice and the only 2 fairways I hit were with short irons in hand. 11 putts on the front 9 says a lot about that tretch of holes.  Birdie on both par 5s on the front is allways nice.  37 shots, par 35 Back 9:  A little better ballstriking even though I hit 2 shots OB, leading to a tripple and a double, 4/7 fairway and 4/9 greens. The short game was more off here and I left a couple of chips a bit short. 17 putts is not as good as I'd like it to be. 1 threeputt, but I think I would threeputt from there more often than not, as it was a 60 foot downhill putt with a lot of break where I gave it a little to much speed. Birdie on hole 15 (short par 3) and on hole 17 was nice, and I missed a short birdieputt on, the tough par 3, 11. Had 165 yards in after a decent drive on the par 5 18, but managed the top the approach and miss the green from 90 yards after that and walk off with a bogey after also missing the 5 foot par save. 44 shots, par 37.  81 shots is not bad, but I make to many misstakes from tee, making golf a lot harder than it needs to be. I hit driver on 8 holes: 1 fairway hit (265 yards), 1 OB, hit short and low slices mostly except from the two topped 80 yard ones, avg. 240 yards today. My drives are usually 270-320 yards depending on wind and course, so my driving is not where it should be. My short game is not perfect, but it's certainly better than my hcp right now.  Playing a round at an away course today. There is a curse hanging over that course that needs to be lifted. Good luck me 😉  
    • Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.
    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.
