69 today, finally got it going after playing my 3 worst rounds of the year the past couple weeks. Did not play spectacularly well on the front, three putted the first two greens, but birdied #9 to shoot 37. Finally got it going on the back and birdied 11, 12, 13, and 15 for 32. Had good looks at a couple more, that didn't fall. Overall, very happy with the round, especially the back.

Basket of 25 before a 9 hole run on an executive course.  Made a major step towards a goal of no sixes with only 3 of them an no 7s!  Made two greens off of tees on par threes with one 3 putt and one 4 putt. Yikes!!  Other par three was on free in 2 with a 3 putt.  Really nice looking lofts that ended up short and one drive out of bounds did not help. Still a 48 over all was good for today.

After shooting backs to back rounds of 97, I shot a 92 this morning....Had one hole with a 4 putt, and a couple of double bogeys that should have been bogeys, so I felt pretty good.  Hit the ball well, only lost 1 ball, so now my next goal is to break 90 next week....

85 albeit from shorter tee - it's wet here in California so the ball is not rolling.   Nothing stood out, good or bad.   Just a routine round for a median score.

Perhaps the last round for me in 2018.  Short course 78 (66.9/120) was not good golf but any golf in December, in Michigan, is great.  After today's 50+ degrees, the extended forecast is cold and then colder.  Clubs are going back to the basement.

Shot 86 last week at Babe Zaharius.....just 2nd time on that track, and it is narrow, but makes you choose shots wisely.  Playing in a tournament there this coming weekend, so I'm looking forward to it.

18 holes final score 96, 5575 yards from forward tees.  3 par, 1 triple bogy, 9 bogies and 5 doubles.  Rating/slope  71.9/125 from forward tees. 32 putts, 1 GIR  5 FW no bunkers no penalties.  Many of my wedge shots fell short of targets .  Drives OK but none were bombs. Lightly overcast, slight breeze.

Played 9 holes, plus 4 extra. On the 9, I carded a 42 (+6). It was 6 bogies, and pars. Made a couple real nice putts for bogey 1s. 

Course was pretty much empty, and folks I did see were friends.

Since my green fee was for 9, or 18 holes, I played 10, and 18 twice, while expirimenting with a few things.

I tried a 12* driver, and 4W today. These clubs are new to me.  Left my 3&5 woods in the truck. I hit the 4W ok, but the big, round headed driver was a bit cumbersome for me to swing. It really felt awkward when swinging with my normal speed. I am use to low profile, square woods. Need to work some more with that 12 degree club. Maybe have club pro shorten it a couple of inches.

Played 9 holes this afternoon. Carded a 39, which is my best 9 hole score for my 2018/2019 season. 6 pars, and 3 bogey 1s. 

Got extremely lucky on a par 3, by banking a tee shot off a pine tree for a par. That hole could easily have been a 4, or a 5. 

Also had 3, one putts for pars.

Shot 85 on Monday, but played better than that. We left the flagstick in (gettin a jump on 2019) on every shot until both of us missed two footers that bounced off. Removed the flag for the rest of the day on the short ones. Very wet greens threw me off too.

Played a course I found online that is nearby that I had never heard of in Ruskin, FL.  Shot pretty well considering I was playing it for the first time.  41/45....with 2 balls finding water that I couldn't see from the teebox.  I did hit 11 fairways, so that part of my game was pretty solid.

    • Hoping there are a few people here who are using Game Golf Live, and can advise, as I was getting well frustrated on the course yesterday.  I am still fairly new to using Game Golf, got it gifted 6 months ago, but only now been playing with it Anyway, on the course yesterday, just could not get it to work stable.  Switched on the Game GPS Unit, it started flashing, then bleeped, white light flashing then paired it with the game golf app on the phone.  It showed my location, so thought off we go .... tag'd my first club the GPS Puck, flashed and vibrated, briefly saw the app show 1 shot, before it went back to 0 ..... took my shot anyway, go to the next shot, again, showed my location, tag'd my club, again same vibrate .. but still no register showing on the phone.  Checked the GPS unit, their seemed to be no lights on, however, it was still registering my location At this point, I ended the round, quit the app, switched off the puck, and then tried to reconnect it all again .... it seemed to go through the same as above ... at this point, got annoyed and switched it off for the round, as it was to distracting So, just wondered, what process / order do people use to get their Game Golf connected correctly.  Do you switch on the puck first, the app .. .what order is this done in
    • So, yesterday I played my par-3s in even, par-5s in one under, and averaged 4.5 on par-4s ... and no sixes.  Anywhere.  Or worse.  First time I've done that. Check it out, my scorecard from yesterday (Nov 16, 2019). f   This was from the blue tees at Encino golf course in L.A..  The second line is where I put notes for later:  G (GIR) or N (near-GIR).  I on occasion make other notations (S: I hit sand, A: got to the green as planned but not in either category;  F: messed up the hole)  I don't do this during tournaments of course.  Just saying it here because it's in the picture. In case the challenge has any such restrictions, I played blue tees which are 70.1 / 114 / 6574 yards.  No mulligans, played with friends in a skins/modified fourball type casual round.  I did accept a few very short conceded putts (none over about a foot).  I believe it qualifies for the challenge.   And I was fully aware of where I stood, score-wise and challenge wise, when I hit my second shot at #16.  So I played the last 11 strokes knowing I had a good round going and a chance to finish the "no sixes" challenge, with a par-5 waiting for me at the end.  I hit a good drive, a great 4-wood, and pitched on from 75 yards with a 9-iron (half swing).  Almost made the putt for a 75 too   76 beats my previous best score of all time by one (that 77 had two sixes on it... but also three birdies).  I get the feeling I'll have a bunch more good scores if I can produce more "no sixes" scorecards  
    • Day 9.  Hit balls for ten minutes indoors, off a mat, into a net.  6-iron.  Focused on completing the backswing.  Balls were plastic.
    • My best shot of the week was hitting a 240yd drive on a par 5 hole twice! No winter roll, no downhill/wind, no cartpath. Just hit it perfectly with a slight draw to the middle of the fairway - ended up with a birdie on that hole both times!
    • Mayakoba Update: Actual events have me standing corrected on the imagined alternative finish as suggested in the preceding post. The reduced field of the alternative scenario most definitely would have finished the 3rd and 4th rounds in one day -- a most important thing to know, if -ANY- type of change is to be made to the actual Low-65 cut rules.
