Went back to where I grew up today to play the 1st course I ever played. Was going into my freshman year of high school in summer of ‘93 the first time I saw the course and promptly barely broke 70 that day... for 9 holes. Fast forward to today and met up with an old high school friend who is a member. He had a pass to get me $24 off the round which would have normally been $34 for green fees and cart so I was already winning before I even hit my 1st drive.
Course opens with what I find to be the toughest hole on the course. 420 yard par 4. Ripped a driver down right side of fairway and have a 9 iron in which is certainly the shortest approach I’ve ever had there. I pushed the approach tho and after a decent chip I narrowly missed the par putt and opened with a bogey. Pars at 2-6 made the day look better tho. Horrible SW to a back pin at 7 I flew over the green cost me another bogey tho but bounced back at par 3 8th by sticking an 8 iron to 5 feet and rolled in the bird to get back to +1. Par at 9 gave me the lowest 9 hole total of +1 36 that I’ve ever posted on the course.
Back side wasn’t so great. Had to hit a stinger for my 2nd at 10 to stay under the trees left. Ran through the green and missed the par save. Par at 11 and 12 were lost opportunities. Drive left at par 5 11th left me behind a series of trees and although I only needed a 7 iron to reach in 2 I had to play right of the green and chip on. Drove the green at 12 and 3 jacked it for par. Lost opportunity. Still only +2 at that moment tho so freaking good. 13 my 9 iron off the tee left me short sided in a bunker and couldn’t make the save. Now I’m 3 over. Drive left at 14 and behind trees so no chance yo go for green in 2. Made par. 15 left my birdie putt so short I was fortunate to make the par. 16-18 were all bogeys.Great drive at 16 and wasted it by missing green with a gap wedge. 17 I didn’t use enough club off the tee. Flushed a 5 iron and came up a club short. 18 hit a bomb off the tee and missed green with a gap wedge.
End of the day a 77 is normally not something to complain about but I left several shots out there. Feel like I should have shot 72-73 today.

So I have a TT #10. Weight is under grip. I removed grip and weight and upgraded to SS 3.0 with SS counter weight (heavier than stock Odyssey weight). The Odyssey grip was easy to remove, than I pulled the weight out and re-gripped with SS.
It's not a useless stat. It's a powerful way of measuring if enough testing is being conducted.
