I had a job fall through today (thanks tile man) so you know what i did. 41+42---83. Thats a good one for me but disappointing too. As usual , i see 4 easy ones that would have gotten my 79. It was a windy day here in the Panhandle so i slowed down and played my plan. Im proud of myself for that but i started counting strokes from about 15 in and just missed the mark. It jacks me up every time i start counting but i cant help it. Im gonna break 80 dang it . Well Hit Em Good Yall !!

Friday, played a new course Reseva Cardales from the tips (71.5 rating, par 72). Finished 2 over. Great putting day, long irons where off. Good round overall.

Saturday played at home course and shoot even par. Really good ball striking in general, 1/4 up and down, not good. Forgot to deliver my scordcard to the starter so I get desqualified. I was in 1st place in the closing championship of the year. Lesson lerned.

A 72 on short par 70 layout (differential of 6.0 if we were in season).  Possibly my last round of 2016, as the weather is taking a decided turn to colder.  Nights at 25 degrees = frozen greens and I generally don't play when the fairways and greens are like concrete.

Played 18 on my home course Sunday. Didn't hit a single fairway and only one green in regulation. What saved the day was my short game and putting--6 saves and no three-putts. Played 44 on front and 46 on back for 90, 18 over.

Well. The front nine seemed like an average Sunday on my home course. My new inside-out swing did not show up--missed every fairway on the front nine. Short game of approaches, chips and putts saved me and I finished at 43. On the back nine, I started to hit fairways (5/7) and greens in regulation (6/9) and the putter continued to do its magic so with three birdies I almost broke par at 37! An 80 was my best score yet on my home course in Chile (par 72 at 7,000 total yards and slope of 113) and close to my best overall score at 78. 

I still can't get the inside to out swing working so there could be more to come. Stay tuned!

Woke up early and called to see if could get out there. I had 30 minutes to make the 745 tee time he said. So I nuked a day old cup of coffee and scrambled out the door with no breakfast. I shot a 53 on the front nine (harder of the two) and was really happy considering I have not played much at all and not once since Tday. Back nine I quit scoring after going 8-7-8-7-6.

First time in 15 years i played 4 round`s in a row past week.

As all the big tournaments at my club ended i decided to try new things at the course preparing my game for upcoming events in 2017.

Thuesday went to play to the course i was a member in my college years (15 years ago), my personal record there was a 5 under. Shoot 85 (12 over). The slowest greens i`ve ever played, it was imposible. 5 of those 12 over where on the green. 

The other 3 days played at my home course before hitting the swimming pool, it`s summer here in Argentina. Shoot 77 (+6). 78 (+5). The final day i decided to stop trying new things at the course and play a little more serious, shoot 74 (+2). 

Still have issues with my mid to long irons, have to work on that.

As a bonus on Saturday hit my longest drive ever. 35 celsius, fairways hard as rock, titleist velocity and tail 25 m/h winds. 490 yards straigth par 5, leave it in the 150 mark. 340 yards drive. PW to rigth bunker, sand save for birdie.

Today I had a 40 on the front 9, and an unknown giant number on the back 9. 

I was trying a new swing, feet closer together, shorter backswing, hips more open at impact, more lag on the downswing, all of that, and it worked beautifully on the front 9.  I hit almost every green in regulation, missed a bunch of birdie putts, had a few 3 putts, wound up with actually a rather disappointing 40. 

Back 9, everything went to hell.  I forgot what I was doing, I did the old swing, I did the new swing, I did the in between swing, I hit the ball in the water, I hit it in the woods, I hit it in the fairway bunker, water, woods, bunker, water, woods, bunker, chip it over the green, a total absolute meltdown.  

But- I had a good time.   It was 80 degrees.  Sun was out.  No one in front of us.  No one behind us.  And we absolutely butchered the back 9.  Both of us.   Worst 9 holes I've had in decades.

A beautiful afternoon on the course today.  A little wind and overcast but nice to be able to get out still.

40 on the front.

Last 2 rounds of the year.

Played on friday on a new course "Estancias del pilar" from the tips 7000 yards, 73.8 rating, par 72, very windy day, . Played really well but all the shots where sourronded by ob or water both sides. With 2 balls in the water and 2 ob i shoot a pretty decent 78 (6 over). Shoot a 9 on the 16th hole. 2 ob there. 

On saturday played at my home course 6500 yards, 71.2 rating, shoot 67 ( 5 under ). Sink almost every putt. 14 gir. Tied for the best round of my life. Missed a 10 footer on 18th :(

Back on the home course after a stellar round last week, thinking maybe I have begun to get this golf thing under control. The golf gods made it a humbling day. On the front nine, had a few rough holes--2 double bogeys and a triple, but all in all, not a complete disaster at 49. The second nine, however, was a different story. Three triple bogeys (where did all these damn strokes come from?) and three double bogeys--to finish with a 52 and 101 overall. 40 putts on the round! Ouch. I was tired and frustrated at the end. One of those rounds when you don't hit the ball well and have to watch a bunch of dribblers, not even decent contact. Back to practice.

Played 18 on my home course, Club de Golf Mapocho. About 7,000 yards from the blues, not many hazards.

had a bad start with a double and triple bogey on one and two, then settled down for 10 over on the front. Shot four pars on the back to finish at 44 and a total of 90. Hit about half the fairways, very short on distance and only two GIR.  Feel like I am leaking power of the tee and from the fairways.

I've just come back from Portugal and shot over 3 days 77 - 72 - 68.

Got in some great practice and really started to play well by the end of the trip. Amazing how a bit of hot weather and practice can all come together :)
