Yesterday...to be precise.  Tied 3-3 at the turn then got routed on the back nine.  We play out the entire 18...so I lost 8-5.  Too many off-course adventures.

Shot a 79 yesterday.  Got a quick lesson before my round to work on driver swing and chipping.  The adjustments seemed to help.  I was hitting my irons really well all day.  Possibly the best I've ever hit them for an entire round.  MIssed some easy putts on the front, but made a lot of putts to save par on the back.  Made 7 pars in a row at one point in the middle of the round.  Overall a great day.

79 today no warm-up with limited time >> 45 front 9............ then 34 back 9 (my best ever back 9 --two under par )

102. Was late, only hit about 20 shots on the range and couldn’t hit a 7 iron on the range for the life of me. 

Then I started with a birdie on a 400 yard par 4... if I could get rid of the 3-4 blowup holes I could break 90... 

I had two 9s on my scorecard today...

Did hit my longest ingame drive though 265 yards, and I had 4 1 putts vs 2 3 putts and this is a course known for its fast greens.

76 today. That's after 12 rounds in the last 11 days. No real score for the last 4 days. They were games like alternate shot, scrambles, straight match play. Tomorrow, I rest. I need it!

forgot to post - played on the 6th (right before we get blasted with a foot of snow last weekend)

2 over 74 on a shorter easier course. but seriously, great start to the season.  (3 holes were chopped short with temporary tees).  2 bogies and a lot of pars.  more regulation than most, but I'm jazzed about getting up and in on the misses.

I'm hitting really clean (like the last in mexico), still terrified of my 5 iron, and my putting is greatly improved within 8 feet - some significant changes over the winter.  I think these will stay for a bit.

Played yesterday in the strongest wind I have ever played in. The ball would not remain on the tee, flagsticks and cups were blown over and out of the hole. Shot 44 on 9 and packed it in due to lightning. Hit a 5 150 and PW 170 due to wind. At least 3 club wind. Makes you appreciate the British open a little more wind you see the flagsticks bent in half

104 on Saturday (4/13) - working on flattening out my driver club path to eliminate a slice. Not very consistent creating a really "entertaining" two way miss. Didn't hit irons well at all either.

Shot 91 last Saturday (4/6). Irons were well above average, kept driver in play on all holes. 

Both days were mid 70s weather with a light breeze - SoCal Golf!!!

Shot an 87 on Saturday, which was about 6-10 shots better than my recent trend, and more in line with what I'm used to playing. Probably would have done better if it wasn't for half-sandy greens, some of which were very slow while others were almost normal speed. 

Oh and the guys behind our foursome complained about playing slow, so I invited them to play through. We finished in 4:40, so if they want to rush, that's okay, but a walking foursome on a hilly municipal golf course playing in 4:40 is pretty good in my book. I wasn't the guy slowing down the group, but I do hate feeling rushed.

86 for me today. (40/46) finished up the round in a 2 club wind. Way too many 5 stroke holes, and  very few pars.

Missed some putts due to ground winds blowing the ball off line. Had 33 putts. 

The wind is bringing in tomorrow's thunder storms I guess.. 

Had a great time anyways.

41/41 for an 82. 29 putts. A little windy at times, but decent weather none the less.

Just played pretty steady golf. Nothing real bad, and nothing real good. I did luck in a 20 footer (+/-) for a par. 

Played with a couple of tourist visiting from Germany. Good conversation with them. Kind of fun to know what the Europeans think of America.

45/39 for an 84 .. was played at a hilly parkland course with very heavy rough and slow recent cored greens took me some time to get my head in the game .. also playing with some local members in their club day ..

First ever eagle on a PAR4 450yards nice chip shot just kept on rolling

6 penalty shots hurt the score... far too many lost balls

Shot 90 today, 40/50.

Had a very nice birdie on par 5 at the 6th hole ( I was 2 over after that hole), winning it for my team but it all went down hill from there. Could not buy a par for the rest of the day, even it was nGIR and even 2 or 3 three putts.

Luckily my friends struggled today too so I still came up winning a little bit. 

Plan to see my instructor next week. Feeling my ball striking improved a lots recently but the scores are just so so. My goal this year would be break 80.

    • I’m putting this here.... move it if needed. Fairly early in the season. Played maybe 7-8 full rounds so far. I’m close. I shot 41 on Tuesday on the front of a course I had not played since 2016. It’s a 128/70.8. A bad double blow up hole and 2 3 putt bogeys but not disappointed when with the 3 putts I still got by with 15 putts on the front. However I blew up and shot 45 on the back. Still for a course I’ve only played maybe 3 times it’s not awful. Then my college buddy comes down Wed. We play competitive to the point of defending home turf. I kicked the shit out of him last time he came down. He drilled me 2x at his course. I go out and make 2 putt pars at 1-2 and drill a 30 foot bender at 3 to get to -1 while he is respectable +3. Anyhow take double at 4 and 8. Bird 9 and end up +3 for the side 39. Home course I can shoot anywhere from 72-78 on a mid season round. I’m happy I’m under 40 with a pair of ugly dubs. But I for 2nd straight day just fall apart on the back. Ball striking gone. My putter is the only reason I break 90 after a solid front. I guess my question is there anyone else who can’t string 18 together? Am I over thinking it this early in season? Losing focus after a solid front?   
    • It probably falls under the same reason why so many 'old school' people still believe putt for dough, drive for show: Pure stubbornness. As @brocks has mentioned Jack got it all going with his moving the goal posts and apparently at that time he just had his way. And some of the guys here just can't let that 'Major wins' thing go despite it being shown quite clearly that 15>18. And I wouldn't doubt that despite Jack himself admitting the superior fields these days he'll hold on to that 18 as long as he can as the sole determining factor of greatness. 
    • Thank for the feedback guys! Yeah, from what I could find out they were the 1986 model. Not much else out there. Foam filled with brass inserts. I will probably pull the 2 iron (that I will never even attempt to hit, lol). Taking them out for a spin in the AM. Regripped 4-pw with Pure DTX in green, in honor of the 5th green jacket! Got to go to my 1st PGA tournament ever last Sunday...what a day that was!
    • That is your body talking to you. I had the same experience some 25 years ago. I would suggest you listen to it and stay off  the weights. I do not know how old you are but  at about 50 most people start to feel the effects of the tight muscles from the heavy lifting. If you are preparing the body for golf and life, you are far better off using exercises that are dynamic in nature and build strength by creating muscle integration instead of muscle isolation. You need to keep the muscles lengthened around the back not tightened. That will only cause you more problems down the line, but I would imagine you already know that. You could also have used inversion therapy to lengthen the muscles in the back and create more separation between the vertebrae . That might not be advisable anymore. Good Luck. .
