Stunning Spring day at my local after playing social nine with a mate yesterday (didn't keep score but had 4 pars) Practice solo round today>> Front Nine was about as woeful as it gets now outside yesterdays Nine I hadn't been on land yet alone touched a Club for over 10days..

Let's just say I was dropping a few F-Bombs as you do when no-ones around and you slice out of bounds bounced my $500 drive over my head on the third very poor pull hook ... 51 on the front one PAR ....

Then just as I was about to walk to my car I decided to put my BIG BOY pants on and focus for the second Nine..

6x Pars couple of Bogies + 1x double B for a 40 ...

= 91 3+ over HC

I don't think I've had such a Bi-polar round in my life LOL

We played the Angel Park Cloud 9 lighted course last night. I haven't played that course in years. All 12 holes are par 3s. They say the 12 holes represent famous par 3s used by the professionals. 

This course is located up in Summerlin, in the west, Las Vegas Valley. I highly recommend it, especilly if you have never played under lights, at night. They also have an 18 hole, putting loop available to use after a payment is made. 

Had 5 pars, and 4 bogies for a 40. We did spend some extra time, hitting balls at the island green hole. I did pretty well getting balls to stay on the green. 

Just a fun time with an old buddy of mine. Scores didn't matter.

Shot an gross 87.
net 68, to take my league championship.

Tried to give it away with a blow up-triple bogie on 18, but held on to win by 1 stroke!

80 at Muang Keaw golf resort in Bangkok - 3rd time.  Played the back first 44 (terrible game, wet and tight lies and I couldn't get the rentals to do anything but hard draw, I couldn't get an iron to fade no matter how I set up.  driving fine, and once I figured out the irons, the heat here I got at least a club extra for all my irons).  But then the front played 36 - 2 birdies, 2 bogies.  Figured out the irons at the end, certainly not set up for me.

cool thing though, got matched up with a couple pros for a 3 group.  Great guys, positive, talkative, really supportive of my game.  Very cool.  One plays the Thai and other tours and was just starting - guy could BOMB it.  the other is a regular on the Asian Tour - super cool, his approach game and putting were amazing.

I learned a lot and had a great time.  Just in awe of the ability of these guys to hit such tightly lined up approach shots.  Next trip, I'm bringing my own clubs too.

I shot an 81, 39/42, yesterday at a favorite course. I've slowly been getting better with my new set up, but yesterday everything clicked. I even had 4 bad drives but managed to recover for bogeys on those. 

The only downside was being behind a really slow foursome. 5 hour round.

Played 18 yesterday in semi, 2 club windy conditions. I say "semi" because not all the holes were effected by the wind. Some were full blown, while others had little, or no wind.

Shot an 84 for my efforts. (42/42). I was consistent. I probably let the wind rob me of 2 or 3 strokes. On a couple of greens, the wind moved my ball off line. I should have allowed for it.

Weather right now is perfect for golf on most days, and I will be taking advantage of it. Especially in the later mornings.

Played another 18 earlier today. Same course as yesterday. Shot an 80. (39/41)

Played consistent golf again, with putting (28) helping my score out. Also had two chip ins that also helped out considerably. Both of those were for par. 

Nothing but pars, and bogies, (10/8) which is pretty normal for me. 

My self imposed time away from playing seems to be helping out. Lots of energy these past few rounds.

Now that my finger has healed enough to start playing again, after a 3 week layoff.  Played yesterday and today, both rounds were no sixes rounds, although the scores were vastly different.

Played Springfield of course.

Yesterday's round has me hanging the clubs up for a while. Replaced the oldest score on the handicap sheet, a 79, with the newest one, shot yesterday, a 97. Maybe a couple weeks layoff will bring the game back.

Shot a 98 at Green Harbor in Marshfield, MA. 

47/51

Played the blue tees and drove the fringe on a 280 yrd par 4 which felt pretty good. It felt like my best ever despite the score not showing that.

Shot 85 today at Heron Lakes (63/107). Very short course (5k) but extremely tight (one hole has about 25yards between out of bounds left and right) and lots of hazards. Actually hit the ball really well. Lost 2+ strokes to scratch off the tee and 7+ on shots approaching the green. Pretty good for me. 3 “blow up” holes otherwise I would have been close to going sub 80 which I have only done at that course once.

Shot 93 today (69.3/121, 6150 yards). Pretty good ballstriking day, especially considering I wasn playing with clubs I had never played with before at a course I have never played on before. Kings Deer is a true target golf course, but I managed it well. 6 pars and 1 Bird! All my blow up holes were the early on getting used to hitting woods I had never hit before. Fun day. Beautiful Course. oh and my handicap is now trending to its lowest point in nearly a year!

Shot 73 in the morning round of our county championship. A mix of the top pro's and amateurs. I was leading the field by a shot and considering the lowest handicap amateur was off plus 3 I thought I did quite well.

Got to the afternoon round and I got a bit tired shot 79. Tied for 10th overall.

Never mind  always next year...

    • My last 10 rounds still have me off to a good start for my 2019/2020 season.  In order as played. 80, 79, 83, 81, 89, 85, 85, 81, 78, and 84.  I hav'nt looked up my revised hndcp, after turning these cards in,but I don't think it changed much. I had three 6s during this run. Two during the round of 89, and one during a round 85. The round of 89 was a struggle in really bad weather.. No excuses though, as I own it the same as the 78/79 rounds.  My 7 wood, and putter continue to be my best scoring clubs.1 Averaged 31. 3 putts per round, which of course is false stat such as my game is. Used 4 different courses in the southwest area.  In between rounds there were practices and Christmas shopping.
    • I have not personally used those Accra iron shafts before but I would say that you have in fact already bought them, then I would give them some time before you make any decisions about alterations. At least 5-10 range sessions and a few rounds with them. If you haven't bought them, I would say that 123g graphite shafts are really heavy and probably not best suited for someone with your speed. They may help with the joints but they aren't going to offer anything to help with speed or distance. I would be looking in the sub 90g range. If you do own them, you would need to change the shafts more than just change swing weights from removing possible tip weights.
    • 2019 Goals Decide on a new home course since moving Play 40 18 hole rounds with at least 15 eligible for handicap entry Work on solid contact with the ball for additional distance Lower my 16.3 handicap index by a stroke   I did join a nearby semi-private club in 2019.  I played about 30 rounds but had 20 eligible for handicap.  I did make decent contact but did not gain much in the way of distance.  And my handicap went down a half point for a while but I ended up at 16.5 .
    • My wife and daughters take 10 minutes just to get out of the car when we get home! I keep my clubs and shoes in my locker at the course, but once I get to the locker it doesn't take me long to get everything out and situated. That being said I normally get to the golf course with plenty of time to spare so I don't have to rush. I've worked there for 15+ years, I know everyone, and I like to go in and chat, maybe get a cup of coffee, eat breakfast. Talk to the old guys that are always sitting at the "table of wisdom" in the restaurant. I believe in being early and not rushing. 
    • I have used something like this and it worked for me. I like that I can adjust the tightness/pressure and pinpoint the location. I tried elbow sleeves before but it was either not compressive enough or it restricted my movement.
