Bears Best Las Vegas - green tees 6600 yards or so, tough wind though.  Shot 80, with 2 doubles, 2 birdies and a lot of pars... Was my 18th round of the year and Handicap now trending to a 7.3


I'm hopefully going to be in Vegas in September and will definately play a couple rounds....  Any course you would recommend?  I don't mind paying $150 for a round but it has to be an awesome course with great scenic views...

Yes... Bears Best Las Vegas, Paiute (any of the 3 18's, Wolf is the hardest), Las Vegas National (where PGA event use to be held, old school but a lot of history), Legacy (but expect a 5 hour round), Painted Desert (good course and value), Rhodes Ranch, Tuscany, TPC Summerlin (where the PGA event is held now), Badlands (target golf though)... always check golf now.com or other web services as you can find deals.  Most courses charge 2-3 times for outside non-resident play so finding a deal is the best option.

89 today: 10 FIRs, 3 GIRs, 7 pars, 29 putts, and most importantly, no penalty strokes or lost balls.  Ball striking was horrific but my short game saved it.

Played in my clubs summer knock out comp and did well over all. Had a streak of 7 pars in a row to go 5 up with 6 holes to play. Then the great collapse came and We walked off the 17th all squared! Big drive up the guts on the 18th BUT struck too well with the ball ending up right on the edge of a bunker! My opposition was in a better position just in the first cut short if the fairway. My next shot went through the green but was just off it in the first cut while my opposition put his second shot wide of the green and to the left. I then putted on to the green to put the ball in the hole for a 20 foot birdie to win the hole! :) All in all a great afternoons golf on probably the loveliest day of the year so far (no cold wind, brilliantly sunny, no need for jerseys or to dress up as an Eskimo!:) Regards Mailman

97 today, 32 putts, 10 FIRs, 2 GIRs, 2 pars, 1 OB.   Felt sluggish.   Iron shots were hot and cold.  Messed up earlier 3W shots and lost a few strokes, but got it working late in the round.  Missed numerous short putts on "aerating" green.  Chipping was the bright spot.

77. Bogeyed first 2 and birdied next...couldn't get any birdies after that but 10 pars in a row then 4 bogeys in a row. Wind started blowing like crazy...hit 2 200 yard 7 irons (on one I was reluctant to hit 8 and ended up going long into water) and on 17 par 3 hit 2 iron when it was 160 to the pin(went long but regardless that's 40 yards of wind)...hit the ball much better couldn't convert any approaches to birdie...still a good round

Nearly strung together 3 rounds in the 80's this week after shooting an 89 yesterday but shot a 91 today because I could not putt in the rain.

Saturday morning: 7000 yards, par 71, 72.9, 129 slope

42+47=89

Hit the ball somewhat well but my short game saved me a lot and I made some big chips and putts. Needed work on my long irons and driver though.

Sunday mid day: 7200 yards, par 72, 73.6, 133 slope

45+46=91

Hit the ball so well with just about everything, driver, irons, wedges, but I could not putt. 3 putted 3 times on the front nine and overall had 4 putts lip out. Sunk a 20 foot birdie putt but other then that my putting and chipping was atrocious. Got rained on for a bit and I just could not get a feel for the greens so even though I hit the ball better then I ever have my score was not great. Chunked a few chips and yep but overall I had a solid week and I am hoping my tournament does not get rained out tomorrow!

The fact that I am suffering from a cold today plus all my joints ache didn't prevent me from getting out an playing 9 holes today. My club selection depending on distance couldn't be counted on today. All my shots ended up being a club short due mainly to the aches in my joints. My putting was horrific. My highlight today was a pitch up and in from 30 feet off the green for a birdie when it hit the flag stick and went in. The other plus was that I didn't loose any balls today. My score was so bad that I didn't bother to record it.

Par 72, 72.1  Rating 133 Slope 6900 Yards... Same old song and dance... Shot 74, 34 putts, one birdie, 3 bogeys, all 3 were 3 putts. Hit 8/9 GIR on the back and was nGIR on the front (Started on the back). Got up and down 7/7 times, so that was a positive. Striking the ball really well, didn't miss a green by more than 20 feet. In fact a few of them hit the green then came off. The course felt very short, so I think I am hitting my drives longer now that the ball is getting up in the air.. but putting is awful. Could have been a 69 easily if I could make 2/5 of my 12 foot birdie putts and not 3 putt.

Saturday 41-47-88

It usually takes me a little time to be able to score in a new season and it is usually related to range time. Saturday was the first day that I felt comfortable with my swing on the golf course and I got off to a good start, but it deteriorated as the round progressed. I'm not too worried; I was able to get to the range for a while on Sunday and the swing is becoming more repetitive. Now I just have to get my golf legs under me, as I think I tired a bit on the back nine and that was the primary reason my swing got a little loose.

Qualifying round later this week, plus the golf team matches start on Sunday.

Tried to play Fri but was too sick so I bailed after two holes. Sat I started at 4PM but by 6:45 I was sitting in a cart waiting on the group ahead on 12 green so I bailed, shot 41 on the front, but that is a crawl for me on late Sat course. Usually finish in less time than it took to get to 12 tee. Yesterday I got up early to play before the Masters leaders got out there but everyone else had the same idea. I left after 7 holes due to crazy slow play. Went back after it was obvious Spieth had it wrapped up but again had to leave before finishing because the wind kicked up to 26 mph with gusts well over that so course really not playable. Sucky weekend for golf.

So after all that I shot just the one 41 despite being at the course four times.

    • When I met my wife, she quickly learned of my devotion to the game. For first couple years, she wanted it to be my thing. Recently, she has taken an interest in wanting to try it. Either way is good by me. Would be fun as a family with our kid to go golf. But, either way, I’ll have my time with the game. 
    • You need to remember that the fulcrum for a swing weight scale sits at 14 inches from the butt end of the club. That means that the majority of whatever shaft you are using will be out past the fulcrum. Therefore the shaft weight plays a greater influence on the head side of the club vs. the grip and why a heavier shaft will increase SW more than a lighter one. Of course there are also shaft balance points to take into consideration but for this example I am assuming our hypothetical shafts are the same other than material and weight. Your example above would depend on the weights of the two shafts since 38.5 to 39.5 would usually equal 6 SWP. Your weight difference breakeven would be around 54g to tip the scale either way.
    • I played my first round in 22 years on May 30 of this year. All 4 courses at Shanty Creek Resort. (It's 7 miles from the cottage). Marysville GC Oak Ridge - both courses Cedar Glen- repeatedly Golden Hawk - a lot Bello Woods Country Club Of Detroit (guest) Rammler Plumbrook St Clair Shores Muni Greystone Lake St Clair Metropark (par 3 course) Burning Tree (guest) Stony Creek Metropark        
    • Don't get your hopes up.  Women do a lot of things to attract a mate.  The only way to know if she is into golf for real, and not just to get a mate, is if she goes and plays on her own.  My wife and I have been a couple since 2006.  She has never went to play golf on her own or with just her and her friends.  She will only go if I ask her to.  I've tried getting her to play and take it up as a hobby, but I think she only got into it because I liked it, and she wanted to do something together.  She doesn't practice or even touch her clubs.  It's like pulling teeth to get her to come out.  Now, if we go somewhere on a trip and I take my clubs, she wants to ride in the cart with me and watch.  To her credit, she was walked and rode many times with me, but she doesn't play!  I think now that the kids are starting to show an interest in it, especially my daughter who hits on the sim with me some, she's starting to show an interest again.  In fact, once I built the golf tent for the simulator room, she came out in pretty cold weather and hit balls for a good long while.  She had a nice push draw going too!  
    • Have you looked into “Tiger Stepping”?  I’ve always had trouble flighting down wedges with wedge specific shafts but have just lived with it.  My best wedge flight came from my old Ping Eye2’s that were before someone came up with wedge shafts.  Check it out, I think it has to do with using your sets 8 iron in the wedges.
