I shot 79 on a very wet course that on a dry day plays over 7,200 yds. It had rained here for two straight days. Had some shots that were great and made a few mental errors. Overall a great day.

Shot an 86. Not too bad last Saturday I shot a new low of 82. 86 with new clubs, 2nd time used today. Also trying out a different putter on top of adjusting to instructors new swing and putting stroke. Progress.

Shot a 40 in strong winds. A trip to the range straightened out the driver, but I was a little lose with 2 par putts and I actually flubbed a pitch shot into a greenside bunker. Got it up and down - once I stopped laughing. I was going to play 18, but my daughter had her first T-ball practice today.

Played the first two rounds of my club championship yesterday and today. 92-89, for net 75-72. I will know in a few hours if I made the cut (and thus get to play tomorrow).

Shot 93 (47 + 46 -- par 70) from the blacks today.

Kind of pleased because I normally play the whites, and 93 isn't that bad for me.

I hit a lot of fairways today, but playing the blacks had me quite a bit further from the greens.  ....didn't hit too many greens. :(

Only 34 putts though (because I missed the greens -- but got close, so I was closer to the pin when I finally got on) --- normally I have about 38.

That said, the next time I play, I think I'll be back to the whites.

Played yesterday with a 20 year old who plays with the Cornhuskers as a sophomore, at a +2.7 (unverified).

We played a local course from the back tees, about 6900 yds. He usually outdrove me by about 10-15 yds, but we were pretty much hitting the same irons, to the same distances, i.e. 5 iron ~200, 6 iron 190, etc., etc.. I did manage to out drive him on a couple of holes, and even drove the green on a short (327 yd) par 4, out driving him again. I also hit driver 3 iron to the middle of the green on a 534 yd par 5. But those were the exceptions.

He did score better than I, carding a 69, while I came in at 5 over that. Oh well, it was a great time. I got quite the complement from him about half-way through the front nine: "I get older guys all the time that are willing to play from the tips with me, but you can actually play from back here!" I told him that my home course is 7100 yds from the blues, and that I'm comfortable at that yardage for now. But I ain't getting any younger!

As I said, he is 20, and I'm 56.

But I felt a little younger yesterday...  :)

I was +6 going to 16 and I overcooked the tee shot and it rolled into a water hazard, ended up with double-bogey. Had birdie op on 17 with a 6-footer but I burned the left side of the hole; then bogeyed 18. Ah well...next time!


Wow, talk about similar... lol. I also shot 81 yesterday (39/42) and blew up on 16. I sliced my drive right into the tree line. However, it really wasn't a bad lie and I had a view of the green AND was only 90 yards out. However, I got too risky on my second shot and clipped a tree which knocked my ball down about 65 yards out. Still not too bad, and now in decent shape, I proceed to chunk my third shot into a GS bunker. On in four, two-putt double bogey. Only double on the day....ARGHH!!

My short game was just not in sync all day. On the up side, I had only 29 putts.

shot an extremely disapointing 46... driving was absolutely horrendous. putting was similar to driving. overall could have easily taken 5 or more strokes off. too bad, cant wait for next time...

Had to hurry up and get 9 in before the storms hit south Georgia.  I just graduated college and some new girl at the pro shop almost didn't let me on the course because she didn't know who I was.  I was pretty agitated since I grew up on this course, my mom has been the club champion for 22 years, and I shot the course record when I was 14!!

Anyway, I hit ZERO greens and still managed to pull out a 38 with 11 putts.  The ProV1 is killing me.  I have a lot of lag in my swing and usually come down on it pretty hard which results in a divot comparable to a 6" meatball sub.  With provolone.  I'm thinking about buying a few dozen V1x's to solve my spin problem.  As long as I'm playing on bermuda, I'll definitely need a ball with less spin!

I didn't really get to play at all while I was at school, so I'm really looking forward to this summer at home and on the course.... minus that stupid kid who needs to know her role.

Shot a 38 on nine at like a 2800yd course. it was my best nine hole score EVER.

If only I didn't play an easy course everyday. I had a very climactic birdie putt on 9 to break my previous record of 39.
