I played the tips at (7617 yards)  Koasati Pines today in Kinder, LA and shot a 80 with no birdies.  It could have been so much better!  I had 5 birdie putts 15 feet or closer and miss three 4ft putts to save pars.  I didn't make a putt outside of 6 feet.  It was a really frustrating day on the greens.  Other than my putting I played pretty good.

I got in a twilight 9 yesterday evening and shot a 42 (par 35) with a triple bogey 7 on a very short par 4.The putter really let me down today. I had 3 putts at birdie that were under 10 feet and only hit the edge on one of them I even 3-putted for bogey once.

Stats......5 of 7 FW and 4 GIR,  4 pars, 4 bogies, and the disastrous triple, 17 putts

First golf of the year on a pretty empty course.  Shot 47 (12-Over) on the front nine and because the back nine was busier and the front nine open played the front nine again and shot a 41. Too many big scores on the first nine but only one 6 (bogey on a par five) on the second trip around. No birdies all day but enough pars to feel ok about the first round of the year.

Had a bad case of the lefts (and more left) with my irons and a topped shot on the first nine. Second nine was better except for a couple of trips into the left trees with the driver. Honestly putted and chipped much better than I expected after the winter lay-off.

Shot 112 today at the same course I shot a 107(I think) at last week. I was really disappointed with my performance as I had believed I could break 100 this time out. I was just taking my eye off the ball pretty much every time I think. Oh well, little more range time this week and I should be in better shape. On the bright side, I lost less balls this time!

Shot a 95 yesterday, not happy at all. With how I was driving I should I have been in the low 80's. Its amazing how one part of my game is great and the rest goes to hell. I can ever seem to get all of my game great at one time lol. I was hitting fairways and driving the ball 275-300. But my short game was horrible and I couldn't get out of the sand to save my life, which I'm usually very good at (4 wasted strokes in the sand). Very frustrating, but I'm hoping next time my driving game is just as good and the rest of my game picks up.

I forgot, we also played from the back tees, not a huge difference but I think with how I was driving it would have been at least a 5 stroke difference.

Shot 34 on the front nine at Whispering Woods. Played the blue tees so the differential is only -1.2 (35.5/142). 7/9 GIR, 15 putts (two-putted for birdie on #3), 2/2 UD, 5/7 fairways.

Shot 97 today, had 4 bad holes (all triples), looking back, had 6 balls I hit poorly that cost me probably 10+ strokes overall.  Moderately windy (10-25mph) but that didn't affect me too much, happy to have 5 rounds in already this year, just need to start working on my putting.  Stayed after and putted for 15 minutes before I had to head to work this afternoon.  I did make several great swings with my new driver on the back 9, just felt perfectly in-sync and didn't feel like I was trying to kill it.......now if I can just figure out how to get less R arm and more L arm into my swing....

Played 9 holes today, was a windy and chilly day. Started off a little rough, been a bit since I've swung with my jacket on and I wasn't swinging well so the first couple holes were ugly. Sun started to come out, took the jacket off, started swinging much better. Came up to the 7th hole, a 599 yard par 5 with water down the right side. Never reached in 2, came close, but never in 2. Today the wind was helping a good amount, hit my drive very well, center of the fairway about 310-315 out, second shot was a hybrid that landed short right, about 60 yards out in the rough. Took out the 60*, hit a very nice shot that hit on the front corner of the green, and slowly trickled in for an Eagle. First of the year, and first ever on that hole. Went on to shoot a 43 (+7).

Got out yesterday (finally), first full 18 holes of the year.  Just got new irons (switched from 4* upright to standard lie) and been working at the range a fair amount.  Hit the ball pretty solid, good driving.  Shot an 84, not horrible considering the conditions of the course, sanded greens, etc.

Played Eaglescliffe today for the first time, stunning course and the greens were in excellent condition for this early in the season. Very windy and intermittent rain, scored 36 stableford points and that was with 4 holes I didn't score on, had 2 birdies, the first on the 13th par 3, 1ft away from the pin off the tee. I had a fair few 1 putt holes and no 3 putts which is good, the new fatso grip is working well.

Second straight 71 at Casselberry! 36-35-71. Greens were horrible - they had aerated & "top dressed" them. More like they glommed beach sand on them & didnt roll them. Consequently I couldn't make a putt. First hole (par 5) I hit a SW to a foot & made an 8-footer for 15 for par. Outside of that, it was just impossible to make anything. Fortunately, tee to green is was super-solid. it 13 GIR. If the greens were even halfway puttable, it woulda been a 67.

In two rounds, my handicap has dropped form 7.1 to 5.9.

    • Day 75.  More wall drill, plus I set up to a ball with my 6-iron (on a mat, but I didn't downswing and hit the ball at any point).  I set up, took the backswing, incorporating what I was getting out of the wall drill.  The thing I really noticed when I got to the top is that my club isn't as far over-extended (seriously, some of those face-on videos looked like I was trying to be John Daly). 
    • Hard to think of a more perfect iron shot from the rough. I guess you could ask to hole out but that seems a little greedy. Brave to even try the shot then it sounds like. Glad you were rewarded!
    • Some of DiMarco's missed putts were pretty timid efforts so that is why I described it as giving them away. He can say he misread them and that is true for some but others really were just poorly struck. It is not to say DiMarco handed the green jacket to Tiger on a silver platter but Tiger was very fortunate that DiMarco did not really capitalize on the chances he was giving himself. That said I agree it does not really take away from the case for Tiger's greatness. The post iacas linked to came off rather biased in tone so I more pointed this out to acknowledge that every Tiger victory was not a controlled cruise either. I think it just goes to show that winning a major is extremely difficult and even the greatest need some bounces to go their way sometimes. It is like that with many sports when played at such an elite level.
    • I played Richter Park a few weeks ago for the first time. It was nice, though not something I desire to drive two hours for. Playing Links at Union Vale again in a few weeks; that is a course that I don't mind the drive for. We could look at other central CT courses. Wintonbury Hills is really nice. I'm playing Gillette Ridge tomorrow, which is supposed to be similar. 
    • Jack's courses always seem to be like you have to always be calculating and many risk/reward decisions. It's harder to relax on his courses, imo.
