87, a decent score.   Started out poorly with two triples but recovered with lots of pars the rest of the way.   Perseverance!

100 (71/135). Not a good score, and didn’t really hit the ball consistently well all day. But I fought hard and actually had a decent score going until the last 4 holes. Fell apart.

An 87 today.  That's 5 straight rounds in 80s which I think may be my longest such streak.   This is the last round I will play in 2018 and I finished the year playing my best golf ever.  Nine years of playing golf and I can't believe I am still improving.   Am looking forward to my next round in 2019.  Happy new year to you all!

Shot 92 today (72 nett) for even my handicap and beat my 3 single hdcp friends who all shots 5+ over their daily hdcp :). The 6 hdcp friend who hasn't golfed in 8 months played 22 strokes over (he got 2-3 birdies, and eagle putts as expected, but he's also got a few double pars :D)

Funny day today. Youngest Granddaughter wanted to go "hang with G-Pa" at the golf course. 

So we played 9 nine holes. The big deal for her was I let her drive the cart. 

To be honest, I have no idea what my (ours')  scores were. I know I had 6 pars, and no 6s. G-Daughter did make a long 15' foot putt, which made her day. Cost me a trip to Mc D's for ice cream.

Still, driving the cart was her happy program for the day. 14 years old and in charge......lol

lIt's the Holliday Season. G-Kids rule.

Saturday's round shot an 82 (41-41). Yesterday shot an 80 (42-38). Heading for the course in about an hour. We'll see what I can shoot on Christmas Day.

Merry Christmas to everyone.

Saturday had a 96 on my home par 67.  Three pars, four bogeys.  Best part was I hit 7 of 11 fairways, which, as I have been struggling with a severe slice was a victory,  I think I have it figured out finally.  35 total putts, 20 on front(2 three putts, not good) 15 on the back. Looking forward to lowering my handicap in 2019.  The goal is to get to 18.

73 today. 2 birdies, 14 pars, a bogey and a double. Just kept saying to myself, fairways and greens, fairways and greens. Smart golf for a change.

66 today, one of those rare days where golf felt easy. Was never in any real danger of making a bogey, ball was basically going where I was aiming it and distance control was great. Left a few birdie putts short but putting was solid, made all the 3-6 footers I "should" make.

Last round of 2018 today.  December has been milder than usual with the temperature today hitting 55 degrees.

Shot 76, which looks better than it really was (66.9/120).  The course is very short.  Conditions in December are always a bit rough.  Really soggy fairways and furry greens but it was a blast.  I wanted to play all three nines but I was a touch fatigued from walking yesterday and today and the other nine was packed with players getting a last round in, too.

    • Day 432 30 minutes with the putter, primarily working on hitting the ball squarely and through the putt.  Have too much of a habit of not continuing through. Greens were a bit difficult for me today, the course changed the locations of the holes on the practice green and I could not simply trust memory.
    • Played yesterday with a buddy at a course I haven't played in a while. It's under new management and the conditions have improved somewhat, although I could hardly imagine them getting any worse. The last outfit was an absolute disaster! Anyway, I shot 40-42=82 for the round and left the course kind of disappointed.  After the 40 on the front, the way I started the back made me hopeful that I could shoot in the 30's and break 80 for the second time this season. That hasn't happened in a while! That was until I totally butchered the par 5, 17th. Hit a not so good drive in the left rough, but not far enough to reach the lake that runs down most of the left side and wraps around behind the green. Instead of taking my medicine I tried a hero shot and dunked it in the drink! I dropped and then took my medicine. This still left me only a partial wedge to the green, I had the pitch going dead at the flag, but hit it a little too hard and it went over. I was lucky it stopped about a foot from the water or it could have been much worse. I chip on and 2 putt for an 8!  So I'm kicking myself pretty good after the round. This morning, sitting at the kitchen table with my coffee and sports talk on the radio, I started thinking about the round again. And I came to a different conclusion. After that yack job on 17 it would have been easy to give up. But I went to 18 tee and hit one of the better drives I've hit it in a while. According to the GPS it was 257 yards. May not sound like much to some, but I'm 67 now and have been working hard to regain some of my lost distance. I was tired of a "good drive" being 220! 93 yards to the flag and I stick a wedge 10 feet away hole high, graze the left edge of the cup with the birdie putt leaving myself a 6" tap in for par.  I was able to put my blow up hole in the rear view mirror and play the next hole the way I wanted to. That's not always easy to do. My buddy's Son lets a bad hole, or even a bad shot get to him. His attitude and game go right in the crapper!  Golf gives you a chance to do better 18 times a round! Not many games like that. I can't wait to get out again!
    • The greens at Pinehurst for the 2014 Opens were bent grass, and they did slow them down a foot for the women.  I played it the Saturday after the women's open and there were no issues with the turf conditions, you could hardly tell where the crosswalks were.  Two days after I played they ripped out the bent and grew in the Bermuda.
    • On another note. Another type of practice is getting familiar with different shots. Trouble shots, or other wise. The more, different shots a golfer has in their bag, the better player they will be. Better players shoot lower scores.   Shots like hitting from the rough, from under trees, uneven lies, thin lies, hitting out of a fairway divot, and what ever else we golfers can think of. Got carry a 100 yards over water? Fake the water hazard, while thinking it's actually there.  We all practice the easy shots, but sometimes forget to learn something about the tougher shots we encounter.  Also, and I think it was Mr. Hogan who said that during competition, he rarely, if ever, hit a shot that he had not practiced, or was unfamiliar with.  A guy in Oregon came up with, and marketed a flash card system to use on the driving range. What ever the shot the card listed, that was what you would hit. Found out he started out with blank index cards, and hand wrote the various shot discriptions. I bought a set of them from the Fiddler's Green GC. It was fun using them. Made you think about a few things in between shots.  Still have them....some where.  Make practice fun. 
    • I shot an 89 the other day and feel like it was 7-9.  I'm feeling optimistic.  😉
