Day 7, played 18 by myself again today. Got to the course and no one was there. Played in 2:20 walking. Had a few bad shots, but for the most part played pretty well. I shortened my swing a bit for better control. My distance is down since my injury, so I have been going up a club for approach shots.

Day 282 - October 5, 2020

Played nine holes. Hit a great pair of shots on the seventh, but then hit my putt one-handed while talking on the phone with the other with a college kid. Could have made eagle. Probably wouldn't have, but they were two great shots. Great hybrid on 4, good second shot on 1, great 3W on 8 with a good 9I after that. Good tee shot on 5.

Lots of good shots.

Day 21 - played in modified scramble today. Hit it well today

We won - got $400 in merchandise :-) first time winning any organized tournament (granted it was a modified scramble). I hit two shots from 200yds out to less than 8ft :-)

Day 108.  Spent half an hour putting, although this particular green makes it tough to do drills (few holes, often occupied).  Still, felt productive.  Glad my favorite evening green in the area has reopened!  Real green, evening under the stars (and lights), real putter, real balls.

Day 8, range work. Focused on staying connected and not taking the backswing too far. I seem to get long on the course and lose control at times.

Day 298

Played another 9 holes. Scored 46 which is not much of an improvement on yesterday’s 47.

Hit it pretty well, and didn’t lose a ball until the last hole when my rear foot slipped out hard on the downswing and I hit a weird, chunked block onto the driving range adjacent to the hole.

Today I had a much better feel for the speed of the greens so putting was good. But I left myself in a lot of bad spots on approach shots. Technically they were “near” the green, but the lies were so awful I had essentially zero chance of getting up and down.

I feel like I’m striking the ball better than I’m scoring, so feeling pretty good heading into a lesson next week.

Day 299

Played 9 again, scored 41 this time. Another pretty good round of ball striking with no lost balls.

Did have to take 1 penalty stroke from a ball that landed in the bottom of a dry creek. I could have gotten club on the ball, but doubt it would have gotten out of penalty area, so went back along the line and dropped.

    • Three rounds to catch up on: 5/12: Played Hillandale from the whites. Not a good start, +5 after 3 holes, but I parred the tough fourth hole and battled back to shoot 44 on the front and 42 on the back for 86. I was pretty happy after the poor start. Irons were spectacular, but short game…not so much. 5/14: Yesterday it was back to Umstead Pines, and we decided to play the blues. I played a solid front nine, 44. Three pars and two doubles. My bro played one of the best nines of his life. After a triple on the first hole, he parred the second and then bogeyed in. 47 for him! We moved on to the back. I slipped a little to start the back, but I righted the ship again and parred the last two holes for 45 on the back and 89 total. How I shot 89 is beyond me, because my whole game felt shaky after about the sixth hole. 5/15: I had a feeling before we played that I would go low, and I did. I was +1 through 7, and while I doubled 8 after an unlucky bounce on my tee shot, I rolled in about a ten footer for birdie on 9 to shoot a two-over 38 on the front. And after 12, I was still only +3, having started par-bogey-par.  Thoughts started creeping in, and I doubled 13, 14 and 16 with a three putt bogey on 15. +10 going into 17. I caught a horrific bounce on my approach and had to settle for bogey, then I parred the last hole to shoot 45 on the back and an 83 total. Unlike the last two rounds, short game was on point today. I hit nine fairways, and two of my misses were by no more than a yard. I’ve got an early tee time tomorrow morning with a buddy, and we’re planning on playing a handicap match. More on that tomorrow!
    • Day 1 backswing work yesterday at Golf Evolution with @iacas   Day 2. Back home.  Did mirror work drills this evening.
    • Day 112.  Morning I snuck out to the putting green;  after warm-up, I did the 4' drill.  Must have had a harder break this time, took me 18 putts to finish.  Not bad, not great.  Got home, got some work done, went back to practice (the rest is at home).  I did a dozen chip shots with my 54 (well, a friend's 54 I'm thinking of trying for a few rounds) and then did 20 full shots with the 7-iron (slow, as I'm practicing something).  I think adjustments after the video the other day have helped to change the picture, and I want to go confirm this tomorrow if I can.
    • How do I come back from a 72 last time out and my best round of the year? How else.... putrid effort for 9 holes of league night. Had as many penalty shots as GIR.... 3. Sadly after 2 of the penalties I managed to leave myself inside of 5 feet for par that I missed. Putter was ice cold. Ball striking wasn’t bad but a few sprayed tee shots and a bad putting day left me 7 over for 9 holes. Worst performance I’ve had in 7 weeks of league play. 
    • Not good, but not really hard to sympathize a little bit. Guys fighting for their pro golfing lives. One of em straight up sucks on this day. The other probably feels this hacker is going to cost him his shot at the tournament and possibly cost him money. All ya need is a spark.
