44 for 9 holes. Not too shabby for a week where my swing seemed to disappear. Two or three holes in things started to feel somewhat normal again. Still hit some poor shots, but they all stayed in play. And I almost drove the green on the 8th. Short 250 yards par 4...so close but not cigar. Nice par though.

Shot 67 this morning. I had 8 birdies tying my personal record. Left my 9th birdie right on the lip on 18. Hit 13 greens and had 28 putts. The claw grip just keeps on paying off.

66 today with the weekend group. Was -7 thru 13, unfortunately bogeyed 16 and 17, but the shots weren't all that bad. No 3-putts, lots of solid swings coming down the stretch.

A tale of 2 rounds this weekend.

Saturday, I probably played about as bad as I could play.  Couldn't hit my driver in play, had 4 penalty strokes, putted horribly, it was down-right ugly.

40-44-84 1 birdie, 5 pars, 6 sixes, ugh!

Sunday went the other direction

36-38-74 2 birdies, 12 pars and 1 double. 

A 10 stroke swing over two rounds, :surrender:

On a separate note, heading to Streamsong on Wednesday afternoon.  :banana:    :beer:

2018-10-15 08_36_07-Facebook.jpgFriday after work - Willingers (a great Gill/Miller course in the area - In the fall I try to play the nicer courses under fall rates - i've hit 2 of the 5 I like so far).  75 - great conditions.

Startled these two on 16 and they ended up following me in the woods on the side through 17 and to the tee on 18.

By Sunday it was snowing......

Last Wednesday's round was 78, Friday, shot 79, Saturday a 77, and then yesterday, Sunday, reality set in and shot an 85. I know I have the swing and game, I just can't keep my mind set straight. Playing 6 times in the next 7 days. I better straighten the mental side up.

95. Played poorly, but was working on some new feels. One positive note is I came as close as I may ever come to a hole in one...2.5 feet! Almost slam dunked it..and yes I made the putt for birdie lol.

Under par streak ended today, shot 72, which is fine because my swing felt crappy from start to finish. Also missed two straight forward up and downs, carried the pitch/chip too far both times in combination with mis-judging the speed of the greens. Just one of those days but still managed to grind out a decent score. Most importantly our team still won the $.

89 with two triples caused by two drives going OB.  I tried to hit Puig like home run on those drives but the balls darted to far right instead.  Other than the two tripled holes, I had strings of par and bogeys.   I

Shot a 95 from the tips of an easy, wide open course (around 6,000 yards). After a rocky start, I started hitting my driver pretty well, getting decent carry for the first time in a while. I only hit 3 GIR (and of course failed to hit par on each), but I had so many nGIR's - 6 putts from off the green (all from within a couple yards) and several chips.

I use a partial swing from almost every shot 125 yards and in. Today I had trouble with club face control and most went slightly right - hence the nGIR's. For the majority of the holes, the full swing put me in position to make pars but I failed to convert.

Shot my lowest round, 63, weird thing is I was just missing it well and putter was really solid. Definitely had better ball striking (contact wise) rounds lately.

Out of eight makable birdies putts, inside of around that 7-8ft circle I made six of them. Then made two 25 footers and chipped one in just off the green on 16, almost putted it but changed my mind lol

I got really nervous on 17 tee, never been -8 before and just stuck with the process and managed to birdie 18.

Now trending to +4 😳

    • Day 30 - Still raining so it worked on positions without a ball in the basement focused on a rubber tee. Then I set up a little soccer net and chipped into that.
    • That'll be $350 for the office visit unless you have Medicare... Way to go with the physical therapy.  Two torn tendons in my elbow and the PT was the only thing that helped it.  Tried virtually everything else out there, except acupuncture, and nothing worked.  Spent more money this last year on my elbow than I do in the same amount of time on golf.
    • Thanks for posting. I have friends in the Sydney area and thankfully they are all ok.
    • Seems like you gotta be half-dead before they'll test you...
    • Excellent point "Vinsk". What you describe has been my personal experience. At age 67 I took my son out to Bandon Dunes early Sept. Out there you have to walk all courses. After coming home I started to have pain in my left hip; I always walked at home so I was surprised at this; I could no longer walk without pain, could not sit at my desk for longer than 15 minutes; riding a cart was OK; but I had subconsciously modified my swing to avoid posting too hard on my lead leg. Even before that I had bouts of back pain where I would suffer a spasm from not bending at the hips properly or twisting around to pick up an object, while under load. These bouts would always subside after a couple of days, but were miserable at the time. Back to the hip, First trip was to PCP; he took an X-Ray nothing showed up on that so he recommended a visit to orthopedic Dr.. Earlier in my life I had seen an orthopedic Dr. about my left shoulder. In my early 20's I suffered a severe dislocation - going to bed in the barracks late one night in the dark and flopped down on the bed, only the bed wasn't there and I extended my left arm to break the fall. After that my left shoulder would dislocate easily - making a left arm only golf swing; it would dislocate at the top of my finish. So I moved on with life; whenever it dislocated I would pull it back in place. In my 40's I was surfing; walking back in carrying the board under my left arm, when a rouge wave caught me by surprise and ripped that board from my grasp. Now a simple dislocation became a major big deal - couldn't play golf etc. At this point in my life I had Medical insurance so I went to Orthopedic Dr.. After reviewing my X-Ray he described the injury to me and said yes he could operate to try and fix the issue or I could try a series of exercises targeting the rotator cuff to strengthen it and help stabilize the joint. That worked, after a while I do not have an issue with that shoulder!! Back to my hip - after the PCP I decided to try a physiatrist (sp?); he did an ultrasound on the hip to see if there was a labral tear or some other cause, then ordered an MRI. So a 67 year old with hip pain guess what the diagnosis is from the MRI - mild arthritis. He offered pain meds(declined) and said if the pain gets too much go see an Orthopedic Dr.; they can replace your hip. I know a number of golfers who have had hip replacement surgery and it was successful - but not for me. I signed up with a golf specific trainer and started working with him; I worked with him once a week for two years. I learned a lot about how muscular imbalances and repetitive movements can cause issues., and what to do to counteract the adverse  Now I am pain free in the hip; much stronger in the core; no back spasms; no sciatica; no knee pain. Play golf 5 days a week and hit a lot of golf balls in my garage setup. Have played 54 hole tournaments; swinging just as well on the 54th hole as the first hole. Recently I had started having soreness in my trail shoulder after playing golf - after some research on the internet I have addressed that issue and my shoulder mobility and strength are vastly improved. Hope I did not bore you with the long story; but I tell that story in the hopes it will help other individuals. I play with a lot of older golfers and see these issues all the time - sore backs, painful hips, shoulders and knees. I always suggest they first check with medical professionals to ensure there is not a serious medical issue that needs to be addressed; then tell them my story and suggest they get with a golf specific trainer. Despite that I know two golfers who had hip-replacements; another with shoulder surgery; another talking about knee surgery. The list goes on. If you are still practicing medicine, then god speed and stay safe during this pandemic.
